My Hard Cover Debut: SUGAR with Jenna Jameson!

JJ_Pub Shot

I’m thrilled to announce my latest—and until now Super Secret—project, SUGAR (Skyhorse Publishing, October 2013), a contemporary erotic romance with the incomparable Jenna Jameson!

SUGAR will be Jenna’s fiction debut, and I’m over-the-moon honored to partner with her in bringing her sexy and soulful story to readers.

SUGAR is a first for me as well: my hard cover debut!

The project is also my first teaming with another author, and I’ll admit I wasn’t quite certain what to expect. Writing is, by its very nature, a solitary profession. What would it be like to invite another writer into my Writing Cave? What would it be like to be a guest in hers? I’m happy to report the experience has been A+++ on all levels, an uncanny meeting of complementary minds, talents, and life experiences.

But then it’s no surprise that Jenna can bring the sexy and then some! Her 2010 memoir, HOW TO MAKE LOVE LIKE A PORN STAR, sold a quarter of a million copies and hit the New York Times bestseller list.

So what’s SUGAR about?

As my longtime readers will attest, second chances are a recurring theme in all my books, contemporary and historical, yet another reason I am so jazzed about SUGAR.

Like Jenna, the heroine of SUGAR is a former porn star, a smart, savvy, strong woman who’s taken total charge of her career and has now decided to refocus her priorities on her personal life. Fleeing the bright lights and big city of Los Angeles, she moves to Manhattan to reinvent herself. In doing so, she gets more than she bargained for—a lot more.

Cover reveal—trust me, it’s g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s and smokin’ hot—and additional details about the book coming soon!

Entangled Under the Mistletoe Blog Hop

Don’t forget to check out what the other authors participating in the hop are giving away!
 

In celebration of the Season of Ho-Ho-Ho, I am one of 50 Entangled authors participating in our first annual blog hop. The hop starts today and runs through December 14th, so plenty of time to visit some fab authors and win goodies and prizes.

For the Entangled Hop, I am giving away one copy of my Suddenly Cinderella Series winter holiday novella, A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS CAROL. Christmas curmudgeon, magazine managing editor, Cynthia “Starr” Starling has reason to bah humbug the holiday, especially since it’s also her birthday–her 35th. Sexy seven years’ younger Matt Landry, the new art director, senses Starr may well be The One but getting her to give in and go out with him will require some serious Divine intervention–a pair of vintage red Cinderella slippers once belonging to a legendary Hollywood starlette and a Christmas spirit guide who happens to look, sound, and smell exactly like him!

Readers first meet Starr as Macie’s boss in OPERATION CINDERELLA, the series launch, available on Amazon Kindle and Barnes&Noble Nook Stores.

And while you’re visiting me, please take two ticks to enter my other two giveaways, independent of the Blog Hop. Prizes are: a Cinderella-themed gift basket (one winner) and three Amazon gift cards (three winners).

Wishing you a holiday season brimming with fairytale dreams come true!

Operation Cinderella HEA Release Week!

October has been a good month for me, a very good month.

Off the bat, October 2nd was my birthday!

October 2nd was also the Blu-ray DVD release of Walt Disney’s “Cinderella,” my foremost favorite among the animated fairy tale film classics!!

And October 15th was the release for OPERATION CINDERELLA, the launch of my new “Suddenly Cinderella” contemporary series for Entangled Publishing!!!

Currently the book is available for download, $2.99, on Amazon & Barnes & Noble with additional e-tailer links coming soon…

Reviews will be rolling in over the coming weeks and months but for now please join me in celebrating this scrumptious cover quote I received from #1 New York Times Bestseller and Lady Jane Salonâ„¢ guest author, Susan Wiggs:

“This is not your mother’s Cinderella story. Hope Tarr’s rendition is funny, sassy and sexy, a fast-paced treat that strikes all the right notes. I loved it!” –Susan Wiggs

Many thanks, Susan, and thanks to all of you, my readers, who’ve patiently waited for my next contemporary romances to be born.

Happily Ever After–it’s about time, don’t you think!?!

As always, with warmest wishes for fairy tale dreams come true,

Hope

 

 

 

 

If the Slipper Fits…

OK, so those of you who keep in touch with me via Facebook and Twitter know I’m all kinds of aflutter over selling my Suddenly Cinderella Series to uber fab digital-first publisher, Entangled.

Even so, there comes a time once deals are struck and contracts are inked that as writers we must descend from our swirling pink clouds to terra firma and well, write some stuff.

But before the writing, mes cheres, comes the research and depending on your subject, that can be the very best part. In the case of my Suddenly Cinderella Series, the plot device that connects all three books is shoes!

Behold my very own take on Cinderella slippers, late 1930’s vintage red velvet evening shoes from the legendary Saks Fifth Avenue. In the spirit of “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” these princess worthy heels will be passed among my three heroines, starting with women’s magazine editor, Macie Graham of OPERATION CINDERELLA, coming this October ’12, then going to fashion photographer Francesca St. James (PROJECT CINDERELLA) and lastly to plus-size personal chef Stefanie Stefanopoulos (THE CINDERELLA CAPER).

How can one pair of high fashion heels fit all three heroines? Well, for starters, they’re magical shoes. (In the words–word–of ever-eloquent actor Charlie Sheen, “Duh!”) Secondly they’re strappy, not enclosed, so there’s more wiggle room, so to speak. Lastly, if we can suspend our disbelief and accept that a single pair of jeans–jeans for gosh sake–can be worn by multiple women, shoe sharing should be a snap.

For now, join me in playing dress up!
