The Reluctant Lover by Justine Lewis #Contemporary #Romance #BlurbBlitzTour

Justine Lewis will be awarding a $25 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

Katherine Bright is one of Australia’s most acclaimed television journalists, but rumor has it her show is about to be axed. Katherine has given up everything for her career—her marriage and the chance of having children— she isn’t about to give up on her show.

Enter Liam Kennedy, a foreign correspondent back in Australia for an awards night. Liam is the whole cliché – tall, dark and totally kissable. Except for one thing. He’s younger than Katherine. Much younger. And when Katherine realizes she needs Liam to save her show she finds herself in an impossible situation.


His arm was still around her shoulder as he led her to the back door of the ballroom. She didn’t feel threatened exactly, but she felt supported by his touch. She let herself be led – and protected, in a way she hadn’t been in a long, long time.

‘Where are we going?’

‘Getting out of here.’

‘Do you have a car?’

‘Not exactly,’ he said, taking her out through the fire doors and into a corridor leading to a small flight of stairs which he started to ascend.

‘Then what?’ Katherine stopped just outside the doors and refused to walk up the stairs. Liam strode back down the steps and grabbed her hand. He tugged. His hand was large and warm and though her first thought was to shake it away and stand her ground, she didn’t. It felt . . . nice. She liked the way his hand wrapped around hers, she liked the warm feelings she suddenly had in her stomach. But it was a silly thought; she needed to get home. Katherine followed Liam up the stairs and into a small private foyer. She wasn’t sure where they were exactly but figured it was somewhere on the first floor of the hotel. He pressed a button to call a lift.

‘I don’t understand. Can you help me get a cab?’

‘Probably not. That’s why you’re coming with me.’

‘Where to?’

‘My room.’

  1. Hi Louise - thanks so much for having me on (again!), Justine

  2. What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?

    1. That's hard to say, but I think I got tired of always thinking 'One day...' and decided to make it that day. These days I've established a habit, which makes it easier to sit down at the computer each day.
