Hope Malory's An Inconvenient Attraction and #Giveaway

Posted by Susan B James on 3:00:00 AM with 1 comment

 Please welcome Hope Mallory who is celebrating her new release by giving away a copy of her last release. See the Rafflecopter at the end of the post.

Thanks, Susan, for having me on your blog today. I’m so excited to announce my newest release, An Inconvenient Attraction, launching tomorrow! This is a contemporary romance, the fifth in my Azalea Valley Series, and can be read as a standalone.

How Difficult is it to get notice for a new release during a pandemic
An Inconvenient Attraction will be my third release during the pandemic. The first launch this year was mid-March at the beginning of the shut down. Although I have been home more which gave me ample opportunity to write, it has had its challenges. The stress at times zaps the creativity, but conversely, as reading often does, writing helps authors counteract the stresses by transporting us into a different place—one without Covid. I enjoy book signings and look forward to them again which hasn’t been possible this year. 

Has it changed your writing?
Not really other than I might have been overambitious releasing four books in 2020. My next book, Christmas Chances, will launch in December. Since this has been such a busy year, I will take a few weeks break and continue to write, but maybe at a slower pace. This time has been a reminder for me to do ALL the things I enjoy and not only writing.

Tell us about An Inconvenient Attraction.

In this return to Azalea Valley, readers will find small town charm, single parents with bruised hearts, and challenging decisions. Escaping the heat of New Orleans turns into a dangerous floodwater rescue for Dr. Lilly Barnesworth. Meeting the handsome Derrick May, father of a rescued boy, interrupts her self-prescribed remedy of a retreat with her young daughters to heal wounds from her recent divorce.

Derrick is on a “not interested” basis with women after his ex-wife ditches him. Seeing Lilly in action saving his asthmatic son forces a crack in his resolve. Both single parents fight their mutual skyrocketing attraction and neither expects Azalea Valley’s small-town magic to fuel their relationship. The question is, can they overcome Lilly’s ex disturbing her newfound peace and Derrick’s rich, aggressive client demanding his personal attention?

This sounds like a great premise. Hope, tell us a bit about yourself.

I grew up in a small Tennessee town. My husband and I live near Nashville and travel as often as we can while still trying to make time for our family including two precious grandchildren. Sometimes settings and experiences from our travels make it into my novels. I write both contemporary romance and romantic suspense. My first novel in the series, Wildfire and Roses, recently won runner-up in the contemporary category of the Raven Awards.

Congratulations! I love the Raven Awards. 
We can we find your books?

For the first four in the series:

An Inconvenient Attraction sounds like an excellent Labor Day read. I find that right now I relax better with books promising an HEA.
