Book Spotlight: Taste for Love by Tia Kelly

Dear readers!

I’m happy to welcome author Tia Kelly. I love interacting with her on Facebook and looking at pictures of her family, especially her adorable grandson. Today Tia is discussing her latest release, Taste for Love and has brought along chapter 1 to share with us. (See link below) Of course I’ve already read it, and I suggest you do the same. In fact, just read the whole book, but first I’ll let Tia explain some facts about Taste for Love!



Hello Candace and readers,

Thank you for letting me stop by your blog today to share my new release, Taste for Love. Taste for Love is a contemporary romance pairing two of the most unlikely characters for love from my novel Playing for Love – Carlos and Shelly.

In fact, Candace one scene made me think of you! Shelly is dancing to a Beyonce song and someone happens to walk in on her… (I know you’re a Bey fan!)

I’m not sure where you or your readers are located, but where I am we just can’t get our weather together for Spring! The temperature is dropping and tonight we might actually get… SNOW! *gasp* That’s the type of weather the led me to some heated scenes and even taking Shelly and Carlos to a tropical locale in Taste for Love. (I needed the escape, even if only in my mind.)

If you’re looking for a good, fun Spring read or need something to warm you up until Spring cooperates, I think you should check out Taste for Love.

Grab your fan, something delicious to nibble on and of course a nice, cool drink… Trust me, you’ll need it when you get around Carlos and Shelly! To get you started, here’s the first chapter.

Thanks again and happy reading!

about Taste for Love

Rochelle “Shelly” Gauthier is no stranger to loss. Hurricane Katrina taught her that in the blink of an eye, you can lose everything and everyone who matters most to you. So being cast out of the Wilkerson clan for betraying her cousin Kenneth, his fiancée Paige and their best friend Carlos only resulted in her being exactly how she always knew she would wind up anyway: alone.

Carlos Ortiz, on the other hand is alone by choice. Or so he tells himself. When Shelly makes an unexpected request for help from the Wilkersons, Carlos recalls a time when fate put him in a position where he had no choice but to accept Shelly’s assistance.

Now he must decide whether what he feels for her is a sense of obligation, or something else.

Taste for Love is the third novel from the Wilkersons in Love series.

Tia Kelly invites you to come meet the Wilkersons and get ready to fall in love.

About Tia Kelly

Tia Kelly may be witty and feisty on the outside, but she is a die hard romantic at heart. She likes to bring ‘life moments… one character at a time’ in the contemporary fiction and is the author of nine books.

In addition to her love for writing, reading, playing chef in her own kitchen and traveling, Tia loves to kick back with a glass of wine and a good game on her television screen. And if it’s baseball season, you will probably hear Tia shouting the loudest (or checking out the cuties in the dugout)!
