NEW RELEASE and EXCERPT
by Jennifer Theriot
USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer Theriot stops by today to share an excerpt from her latest release and $0.99 Christmas treat, Unwrapping Noel.
Noel Calabrese hates Christmas as much as she hates her life. While in the Silicon Valley on a business trip, she meets Leon Hallas. Could this sexy, silver fox be her ticket to happiness? Can she learn to trust again?
Unwrap this steamy little romance about Second Chances and Self-Worth, complete with a palindrome...
Feeling a bit insecure about walking into the restaurant by myself, I opt to sit at the bar for a drink or two before dinner. For some reason, my eye is drawn over to the right. I can’t help but stare at the gorgeous, Adonis-type guy sitting at the end, by himself. He’s got salt and pepper, short, styled hair and the most gorgeous eyes I think I’ve ever seen. I can’t tell what color they are, but holy hell, he’s hot. Clad in a black leather jacket with a white shirt, I can only imagine what he looks like from the waist down. Upon noticing my ridiculous gawking, he smiles, dips his head and cordially tips his glass towards me. Ashamed at myself for staring, I order a glass of Merlot and pretend to read an email on my phone.
Praise for the Book
"... great story about finding your voice and learning to value yourself!" ~ Michelle M.
"I loved reading Noel and Leon's story. First off I absolutely loved the play on their names. It was something that I didn't catch until it was mentioned. I loved this story and as you read it, you want Noel to experience great things. She has been through hell and has become a better woman for it. Leon and Noel make a couple that you completely root for. I loved this story and can't wait to read more of it." ~ Ashley Hedden
"A quick, somewhat steamy, holiday read about a good-hearted woman who has been kicked by life. If you are a fan of Theriot's Out Of The Box series, you will love this new book. It's the perfect holiday read about love, romance, and the growth that a person can only experience when she looks inside herself." ~ Ghost Writer
"I think this is Jennifer Theriot's best book so far. It is a view of real life." ~ Kookykat
I loved reading Noel and Leon's story. I found myself laughing, crying and loving each page. Jennifer Theriot has been one of my favorite authors for a long time and she keeps getting better and better. I don't give away spoilers so I'll just say that if you want a quick read full of events you can relate to ... check out Unwrapping Noel! You won't be disappointed!" ~ Kelly Cozzone
