Aloha to Heather McGovern and A MOMENT OF BLISS (A Honeywilde Romance)


Nestled in the lush green mountains of North Carolina, the Honeywilde Inn will be a romantic’s dream getaway—if only the Bradley siblings can keep it running. It will take a combination of hard work, good luck, and the kind of love that dreams are made of…

Roark Bradley is no stranger to responsibility. Growing up, he practically raised his younger siblings while his parents threw themselves into working the inn—and arguing constantly. Determined to make the Honeywilde shine once more, Roark jumps at the chance to conduct business with a no-nonsense event planner who approaches him about celebrity nuptials that could put the inn back on the map. If only it wasn’t so tempting to discuss some no-strings attached pleasure with her instead…

Madison Kline is done with weddings—at least personally. Her own youthful mistake is a well-guarded secret, and one she refuses to repeat. But as she and bold, broad-shouldered Roark work together to make a rock star couple’s wedding a reality, she finds herself wishing romance didn’t feel like a four-letter word. Can either of them surrender their hard-won independence and workaholic ways for something sweeter?

Mild mannered corporate employee by day, glitter throwing author by night, Heather McGovern grew up thinking she’d either be a herpetologist – frog scientist to be exact – or Wonder Woman.

Born in the Upstate of South Carolina, she moved to Charleston to attend the College of Charleston and graduated with a BS in Biology. After realizing she didn’t want to work in a lab or go to college for 8 more years, she moved back to the Upstate. She still lives there, in the Magical McGovy Forest, with her husband, son, and plenty of pond frogs. If she’s not working on a computer somewhere, she’s playing superheroes with her son, and he always lets her be Wonder Woman.

Find out more about McGovy at and connect with her on Twitter and Facebook.

Heather offers an excerpt from A MOMENT OF BLISS ....

No wonder a world-traveling music star remained obsessed by this place. Whitney was from the Southeast, and Honeywilde provided all of what was best about the South: the food, the warm, welcoming environment, the relaxed atmosphere, the gorgeous weather.

Madison grabbed a biscuit, cut it in half, and slathered it with butter before Roark could return and see how much she’d put on each side. The temptation to hurry and eat one now, and pretend like a second one was her first, was immense. She took a sip of her coffee while the butter melted. Roark appeared in the restaurant doorway a moment later.


Not because she’d missed her opportunity for biscuit scarfing, but damn.

He spotted her and strolled over, saying hello to a few of the guests. His face was full of color from the morning air, his dark hair slightly tousled from the wind. He was still put together, top to bottom, in dark gray slacks and what looked like a ridiculously soft polo shirt, but she could easily imagine him less cleaned up.

Ruffled from the outdoors, his hair mussed up even more, smelling like sunshine and evergreen, and a day or two of scruff on his jaw. He was the kind of man who could work a bit of stubble. The kind who made your lips pink after kissing him, and rubbed deliciously against you in . . . other places.

Madison jerked her gaze down to her biscuit. Work, work, work. Job, job, job. She was not here to salivate over biscuits and Roark. She grabbed a menu, ready to fan her face when she caught herself.

“Hey.” He pulled his chair out and sat down across from her. “Chillier than usual this morning, huh?”

She put the menu back down. “Yeah. Chilly.”

Book 2 in the series .... 


  1. I agree with Danielle, this does sound good.

  2. Sounds like a fun romance. The Green Mountains make for a beautiful setting. I would like to stay at an inn there.

  3. I loved visiting the Carolina mountains - a story set there sounds like fun!

  4. The Carolina mountains are lovely. A wedding at an inn in those mountains would be perfect. We live along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and they are wonderful to wander and visit.

  5. New Author for me. It does sound good.
