But first let me just say thanks to everyone who came by for yesterday's IWSG and offered encouragement about my writing funk while also supporting Christine Rains. As always you are all the best. :)
And now for Elizabeth and her latest, Defying Reason.
Did you know?
The butterflies in the stomach feeling caused by love (or insane nervousness- the feelings are interchangeable) are caused by the increase in adrenaline. As love grows, the adrenaline is replaced by oxytocin (not to be confused with oxycodone, that's a whole different addiction). Oxytocin is the same hormone emitted by parents as they bond with their children.
Jo Leigh Harper comes from a long line of trouble-making, white trash stock.
Tanner Coulter comes from a longer line of wealth-creating, blue blood stock.
Jo graduated college top of her class, moving toward a future full of possibilities.
Tanner dropped out of college, trading a law degree for drinking games and one night stands.
A family crisis throws the rich party boy and the poor genius girl together. The attraction is immediate, though neither one is a heart-in-the-sand-drawing believer in true love. But as the summer sun heats up along the shores of the Outer Banks, so does the connection between them. Maybe, just maybe, they can win at love by defying reason.
Elizabeth is a multi-published author of books for people who are believers in happily-ever- after, true love, and stories with a bit of fun and twists with their plots. The mother of four young men, she tackles laundry daily and is the keeper of the kitchen. She lives along the shores of the Ohio River in West Virginia, but dreams daily of the beach.
