Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the most novel approach to love comes when we least expect it.... 

A lot can happen at a book convention, but for a conservative romance author like me, things remained fairly predictable.

Until the unofficial king of smut crashed into my life, leaving sparks - and our luggage flying around us.

I had never heard of the illustrious Gage Blackstone, but after two seconds in his presence, my mind was conjuring up scenes that wouldn’t make it into my sweet stories.

He was worldly, gorgeous and his eyes promised naughty things to come. Things I never knew I wanted.

My annoying inner vixen is begging to be set free, but it's going to take a whole lot of charm, wit, and patience from Gage to convince me hand over control.

There’s also the matter of his “super-fan” standing in the way...how far will she go to keep us from going all the way?

This is a book in a series of stand-alone novels, each with a guaranteed HEA or HFN.

Romance between authors... sweet!

What a fun and entertaining read! I loved the idea of a romance between authors who meet each other at a romance book convention! And you can’t get much more of an opposites attract couple with Stacy Sanders, the sweetheart of sweet romance and as vanilla as they come, and Gage Blackstone, the bad boy of erotic romance who oozes with sexiness. I enjoyed how Stacy came out of her shell around Gage, and her awkwardness lead to some funny moments and truly relatable situations. The mutual attraction between these two was evident from the start, and their budding relationship took off quickly, however not without a hitch… an over-protective PA and a mysterious reader fanatic added a nice balance of drama and suspense. As an avid reader attendee of romance conventions, I enjoyed this author’s point of view, from mishaps with swag and encounters with readers… it makes me wonder all the “real-life” behind the scenes stuff that authors aren’t telling us about! Narrated by the talented Heather Firth, she gives another stellar performance with her remarkable ability to elevate the story with her arsenal of voices for an easy-to-follow and pleasurable listening experience.

Great Story & Narration🎧 Gage💘Stacy Sweet & Spicy🔥

I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet and delightful story. It is well written and well told with interesting storylines that captivated me from start to end. I adored the two lead characters, both are authors of romance on the opposite end of heat, one writes squeaky clean the other steamy kink. Stacy Sanders “The Sweetheart of Sweet Romance” and Gage Blackstone is the “king of one handed reads”. The two meet while attending a romance convention in London. Stacy has some serious OCD tendencies and is not an outgoing person, Gage was just the opposite. I loved these two together, they were so good for each other. I thought it was great how Gage threw her off balance having her skip some of her OCD routines. I loved how their story played out, from the working together to the hot romance. Will Gage’s ways steer Stacy to the kinkier side of romance? I recommend this enjoyable story, there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, a touch of angst and a nice twist where the author keeps you wondering and guessing. There is some great romance too. Heather Guimond, thank you for this great story.

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated by the wonderfully talented Heather Firth. She performs the voices for all the characters, giving each their own unique sound making it easy to follow the story and the characters. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Fun and entertaining

Heather Guimond is a new author to me, although I have listened to a previous book by Heather Firth.
This was a fun listen and Heather Firth did a great job with the narration. I loved this quirky story about Stacy Sanders and Gage Blackstone. I was intrigued by the blurb for this book, and since I am jetting off next week to a book signing, this book seemed to have been dropped into my lap by fate.
While Stacy and Gabe are opposites in life and as authors, she is sweet , romantic and he is a bad boy, they should not be attracted to one another and yet the chemistry between them sizzles.
Heather Guimond wove a story that reeled me in and kept me riveted. There was suspense, drama, humour, spice and so much fun that this book was one I didn’t want to stop listening too. A real little gem and I will certainly be looking at other books from Heather Guimond when time permits.

When Romance meets Erotica... Literally.

When the squeaky clean good girl of romance falls for the bad boy of erotica you are in for a good time. This is a really enjoyable listen. The narration is great and it’s easy to get lost in the story.

I think Gage Blackstone could seduce the pants off anyone. There is a fun suspense element and a bit of kink. My biggest issue was the heroine’s inner monologue I started to tune out her inner slut 10 references in.

Cute Love Story Wrote in Words

This is the absolute perfect love story that’s a quick read! Towards the middle it kind leaves you in suspense as to who the stalker is! Narration is spot on! Love the honesty and connection the narrators have!

I couldn't predict it, Great Listen

I received this audiobook free as an Audiobook Obsession Reviewer, for an honest review. I really liked this audiobook. The author kept the listener/reader guessing throughout the story of who the stalker was. I had my suspicions but couldn't guess it for sure. Nice twist. The romance between Gage and Stacy was adorable. Is there a triangle love affair or not? The narrator did a great job with the characters. Would have loved to have a male voice to enhance the story, but Heather Firth did good with both parts, including the other characters.

A HEA Destined from the first Meeting

Enter the world of professional authors, airport chaos trying to get to your flight on time, goodie packs for book signing events and the inner workings of the romance world 😊😊
Enter the world where America’s Sweetheart in Romance meets the King of Erotic Fiction.
A story where bodies collide and bonds are made to not be broken.
Meeting fans and authors alike at conventions and book signings where one can improve upon their craft and inspire others via workshops and panels on ways to brand and market yourself and your writing.
At times listening to Heather read the parts of the varied characters the storyline developed quirkiness incorporated into some hilarious scenes being played out,
The thing I loved the most was the familiarity and the way one identifies with the main characters — even the twists we didn’t see coming until they were right in front of us causing an ahhhh makes sense now lmao kinds of moments throughout.

It was an amazing listen I gave it 4 stars overall as there were times I truly didn’t understand the motive behind some of the decisions made between the characters I truly enjoyed the funny moments often recounting the scenes to friends as they asked what I was laughing at lol

Definitely a story I would recommend listening to and one I may listen to again I didn’t want to include spoilers in my review as a lot of the moments were beautiful and I enjoyed discovering them for myself

Thankyou

The Novel Approach

This was such a fun book! A by chance meeting with someone that is just perfect for you and will help you get out of your bubble. These two are so perfect for each other and I was happy to see that neither of them really fought it and dove right in feet first.

A fun look at a what if question

After reading so many romances, I always wonder what the authors think, or how they would be if they met. This story is a fun look at just that. Sweet meets kink and the sparks are flying. Stacy writes sweet romances and she is seated next to Gage, who is well known for his sexier romances. These two must meet somewhere in the middle for them to be a couple, The getting to that middle was the best part of this story. The chemistry they have is instant. The inside look at two authors really was a fun read. I cannot wait for more in this series.

Heather Firth was amazing in her narration. She brought this story to life. Heather has a way of connecting with the characters. She brings out all of the chemistry, emotion and fun between Gage and Stacy. I always love listening to Heather and cannot wait for more.

The Noval Approach

This is a unique, funny, and well written story. The contradiction and chemistry between Stacey and Gage was amazing. This was a first read and listen with Heather Guimond and Heather Firth, but I will be anticipating more works from both.

This was a fun, sweet, listen. Great chemistry between two authors who meet at a book signing after a couple of accidental encounters. Sparks fly even though they are opposites in the same genres.

Novel approach to a book

The concept of this story is one that every person that has attended a book signing event has wondered about. Loved the banter between Stacey and Gage. It was swoony to see how Gage treated Stacey, introducing her to new things.

This author is new to me, and I really enjoyed her writing and will seek more of her books, wish there were more audiobooks by her.

Heather Firth does characters so well and so smoothly that I become lost in the book and she takes me away when she narrates a story.

This book was gifted to me by the narrator and the review is my honest opinion.

Heather did a great job with this unique story. I found myself laughing and shaking my head a lot while listening. And the chemistry between the characters is terrific. A first for me by this author but I will definitely look for others.

This was a great listen!!

Stacy is a sweet romance writer who keeps to herself, doesn’t make friends easily, and hasn’t been overly adventurous sexually.

Gage is an erotica writer who is well known and is outgoing and adventurous.

When they meet, by chance in a hotel in London and a reader/author convention; there is attraction in both sides. They see each other while there, and Stacy takes him up in his offer to visit him in Vegas.. But Gage has a stalker!! Is it his assistant, who I’d extremely cool to Stacy when they meet? Or is it Stacy’s new friend Alexis??? And can the couple survive this test!?

This was an excellent listen! And Heather Firth is easy to listen to and made these characters believable!

Loved this book

I really enjoyed this book. The chemistry between Gage and Sandy is immediate and off the charts. The secondary characters were also good and I can’t wait to read the next book.
