Washington Loves Readers Luncheon - Spotlight on Olivia Dade


Reminder: I have a special giveaway to celebrate June at this link.

The Washington Romance Writers (WRW) are hosting its annual Reader Luncheon (link) on Saturday, October 8, 2016. I look forward to meeting Olivia Dade.  From her bio (link),

During those thirty years, I accomplished a few things. I graduated from Wake Forest University and earned my M.A. in American History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I worked at a variety of jobs that required me to bury my bawdiness and potty mouth under a demure exterior: costumed interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg, high school teacher, and librarian. But I always, always read romances. Funny, filthy, sweet—it didn’t matter. I loved them all.

Olivia is ready to launch the next book in her Lovestruck Librarians, READY TO FALL, on June 21:

Elementary school teacher and part-time librarian Sarah Mayhew has the perfect plan: show off her cycling skills at her school's bike retreat and attract her oblivious coworker in the process. Her end game? Fall in love. Only one problem: she needs to find someone to teach her how to ride a bike pronto. But when she catches sight of Chris Dean's gorgeous physique, her best laid plans are about to go off track . . .

Chris is not looking for a girlfriend. He's getting over his last one by focusing on his bike repair business. So when a feisty, sexy schoolteacher urges him to help improve her cycling skills, he does it strictly for the money. He vows he won't repeat history, even for a blonde bombshell like Sarah. But when the two find themselves alone on the road, they can't help taking a detour straight into each other's arms . . .


I am giving away a book choice from my convention stash.  To enter the giveaway,

1. Let's chat about bikes - do you still ride one as an adult?  I frequently rode a bike on Pearl Harbor (link) but have not taken to the wheels since moving to Maryland.

2. Comments are open through Saturday, June 11, 10 pm in Baltimore.

3. I'll post the winner on Sunday, June 12.

Mahalo,

  1. Sad to say I never learned to ride one. We lived on a hill when growing up and although the other children all had bikes, my parents wouldn't allow it :(

  5. We are a big biking family, but I don't do it more than a couple times a week, and that is only around my house and street. I bike trails when we camp, though.

  10. I have a bike, but have not ridden it. We live in the country and it isn't save to ride on the roads. The last time I rode a bike was about 3 years ago. We rented them and rode in Dogwood Canyon outside of Bryson, MO. I was bait shaky at first, but finally got better.

  11. There are way too many big hills here to make riding a bike any kind of fun.

  13. I never really had a bike when I was younger and I don't own one now. I don't have anywhere I would really travel to on bike (work is too far) so I don't see the need for one
