Title: Kissing Lessons

Author: Stefanie London

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Kissing Lessons:

Welcome to Kissing Creek, where everything has a romance-themed pun for a name and love is lurking around every corner…

 

Audrey Miller doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after, so she is definitely living in the wrong town. But she’s never getting out of Kissing Creek, because playing pseudo-mom for her younger siblings doesn’t leave time for much else. She’ll do anything to make sure they don’t end up stuck like she is, working as a barista in a college town, serving Pink Passion mochas with Chocolate Smooch donuts.

 

Then Ronan Walsh, a new young professor and walking cliché, right down to the elbow patches on his blazer, steps in for a coffee and into her life. She knows his type—intelligent and charming, yet sweet as a cinnamon roll, the sort of man she’s inevitably attracted to but is always out of her league. So why does someone like him have any interest in a worker bee with no future?

 

Her bland-as-oatmeal existence has nothing to offer, but Ronan’s temporary teaching position is only a stepping stone on his way to somewhere else. He isn’t here to put down roots, Audrey’s roots are firmly planted—neither of them is looking for love. And maybe that’s just perfect.

 

But in a small town called Kissing Creek, sometimes love can be impossible to avoid…

Read Kay’s Review: Kissing Lessons

Exclusive Excerpt:

“It’s the llama,” she whispered, her green eyes wide.

She said it with the same level of awe-struck, yet fear-filled reverence as if she’d announced that Satan himself had walked into the bookstore.

“A llama?” He raised a brow.

The llama.” She sucked in a breath. “We only have one, our college baseball team’s mascot. She’s mean.”

“Aren’t llamas supposed to be all fuzzy and cute?”

Audrey made a scoffing noise. “No. You’re thinking about alpacas, which are sweet-natured little bundles of fleece and eyelashes. They wouldn’t hurt a fly. I love alpacas. But llamas…they’ll cut you.”

For some reason he had this vision of a llama wielding a butcher’s knife, Psycho style. “I’m sure you’re exaggerating.”

He walked past the rows of books. There was a startled yelp from the front of the store and something that sounded like a stack of books being knocked over.

“Stay back, Lily!”

Ronan glanced back over his shoulder at Audrey, who shrugged as if to say: it’s your funeral. He’d seen llamas before…well, not in person. Only in memes that his colleagues liked to send around occasionally. Then there was his friend who’d gone to South America and posted a bunch of pictures with him and the furry creatures to Facebook. They didn’t look that scary.

“Lily…don’t you dare!”

Ronan exited the aisle in time to see Lily, whom he could only assume was the shaggy beast taking up most of the space in the front of the bookstore—thus blocking the exit—nudge a pile of books, sending them toppling over.

“You confounding animal!” Mr. Hart was definitely wide awake now and shakily getting to his feet. He was protected by a large, heavy banker’s desk, complete with hunter green leather insert and matching lamp. “Go on, shoo! Get out of here.”

But Lily merely looked at him with the disdain of someone who knew they were in the position of power. She stretched up to her full height and Ronan gulped. Okay, so maybe she did look a little mean. And damn if she didn’t weight over three hundred pounds. At her full height, he’d guess her to be a hair under six feet tall, meaning she could look him right in the eyes.

“Don’t get too close,” Audrey advised from behind her barricade. “She—”

Audrey’s advice was cut short by the llama drawing her head back and spitting right in Ronan’s face. The moisture hit the side of his cheek, as instinct had made him turn his head, and now it was sliding down to his jaw in a soggy, slow trail.

“She spat in his face!” Mr. Hart shoved his glasses back up his nose and made a sound that could only be classified as chortling. Unabashedly gleeful chortling.

Ronan dragged his hand across his left cheek, unsure whether that made it better or worse, because now his arm was sticky, too. “Score one, llama.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

Audrey cocked her head. “You know, we’ve been warned about people like you.”

“People posing as professors.” She waggled her finger at him and made a teasing, tutting sound.

“Posing?” Ronan literally studied the very things which made people who they are—the very fiber of their motivations and morals. He would never scam someone. But this wasn’t the first time someone had questioned him because he was younger than average. “I’m a professor at Harrison Beech College. I don’t have my faculty card yet, that’s all.”

“You really thought you could get one past me by trying to look the part?” She shook her head. “The elbow patches were a good attempt, but don’t you think they’re a little cliché?”

Now she was insulting his fashion choices? He blinked. “What’s wrong with elbow patches?”

“It’s like you Googled ‘what do professors wear?’ and then bought the first thing you saw.” She bit down on her lip as if stifling a laugh.

Everyone was looking at him now, but Ronan had always been impervious to embarrassment. Maybe it was years of growing up with his Irish grandmother who was as blunt as a hammer.

Although he had Googled that exact question on his first day as a professor in his late twenties. He’d been more insecure back then, feeling the age gap between him and his colleagues and his lack of life experience like a weight around his neck. These days he’d learned to hold his own, academically and personally.

And he damn well liked his elbow patches.

Kissing Lessons 
(A standalone)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Adorable, full of emotion, passion, and personal connection…Kissing Lessons is a wonderful read!

Audrey Miller always wears a smile and appears to the outside world like the eternal optimist, but when you get to know her she’s actually a realist living in the present and just getting through life day by day. After her mother died she took over as the head of household raising her younger siblings and she basically gave up on whatever dreams she may have had for herself. It isn’t until Ronan Walsh comes to town that he pushes her to see beyond the small town and what potential she has beyond serving coffee and selling crystals.

Ronan has spent his entire life pursuing education and furthering his career. Raised by his grandmother when his parents flaked out, he hasn’t put a lot of faith in romantic relationships, so ending up in a romance-themed town seems ironic at best. However, when he meets Audrey who not only intrigues him, but has similar views on life perhaps he might just take time to enjoy what Kissing Creek has to offer.

Kissing Lessons is filled with amazingly wild trivia, a super attractive man–ok he’s attractive on many levels, but mostly because he is attracted to her brain first and then her body. It is a huge aphrodisiac that he uplifts her confidence and see the potential within her, which uplifts the power within herself, and appreciates everything she is and does by just being her. He loves that she enjoys learning and knows random facts instead of being intimidated by her brain when he is a professor. Again, that is super sexy.

Audrey is a bit of a martyr, you will come to find, but aside from her trivia filled mind, her greatest strength is in loving her family and friends. She may be a realist, but she is also on the side of an optimist. Only a person who takes care of all of her siblings, deals with the public on a daily basis, is basically Cinderella with all of the chores, and doesn’t do things begrudgingly, yeah Audrey is allowed a little freak out when Ronan pushes her boundaries when he comes into town.

A seriously good read and one to make sure you squeeze in before the end of 2020!

Synopsis:

Welcome to Kissing Creek, where everything has a romance-themed pun for a name and love is lurking around every corner…

New Release – The Aussie Next Door by Stefanie London

TAND - RB banner.jpg

The Aussie Next Door, an all-new standalone romantic comedy by USA Today Bestselling author Stefanie London is LIVE!

TAND Cover .jpeg

American Angie Donovan has never wanted much. When you grow up getting bounced from foster home to foster home, you learn not to become attached to anything, anyone, or any place. But it only took her two days to fall in love with Australia. With her visa clock ticking, surely she can fall in love with an Australian—and get hitched—in two months. Especially if he’s as hot and funny as her next-door neighbor…

Jace Walters has never wanted much––except a bathroom he didn’t have to share. The last cookie all to himself. And solitude. But when you grow up in a family of seven, you can kiss those things goodbye. He’s finally living alone and working on his syndicated comic strip in privacy. Sure, his American neighbor is distractingly sexy and annoyingly nosy, but she’ll be gone in a few months…

Except now she’s determined to find her perfect match by checking out every eligible male in the town, and her choices are even more distracting. So why does it suddenly feel like he—and his obnoxious tight-knit family, and even these two wayward dogs—could be exactly what she needs?
