Thank you Mariann for having me here today and for making me your September author of the
month! I am so honored.
Who doesn’t love a good series? I know I do. I’d even go so far as saying that I love sequels and prequels, too. Basically, anything that keeps me up-to-date or gives me more backstory about my favorite characters makes me happy as a clam.
There is something very satisfying about reading the fifth book in a series and learning that the
hero and heroine from book one are fabulously happy with a bazillion kids (or whatever made their happily ever after happy for them).
One of my favorite series of all time is Julia Quinn’s The Bridgertons. In every book, we get
a brand-spanking new couple along with little details about former couples. Ms. Quinn has even
written Epilogues of Epilogues. Seriously. And I seriously lahved them. So it’s no wonder that I not only had to write a series but that my full length novels must include an epilogue.
So readers, what’s your favorite series?

Not even Holland Springs' Most Notorious Resident can stop this Love Spell.
Customers come to Rose Holland’s apothecary shop for three things: to hear her uncanny
matchmaking advice, to buy the “magical” hair and skin products she sells, and to accuse her of trying to steal their men. For years Rose has been entirely innocent and almost content with that status quo. But that was before sexy, smooth-talking Sasha Romanov came to town and made her want to use her love potions on him… until he broke her heart. Now corrupt town officials want to seize her land and sell it to an industrial giant, and her only hope for help looks like the one man she can’t trust—or stop herself from falling under his spell.
Alexander “Sasha” Romanov seems like every woman’s dream: charming, handsome and fabulously rich. But while the people of Holland Springs think he’s in town to generously invest in their economy (and possibly one of their daughters), Sasha struggles to save his sick mother from his vicious uncle’s plans by doing everything the greedy businessman wants. And Vlad Romanov wants Rose Holland’s land—at any cost.
Despite Sasha’s vow to get the job done and keep his hands (and everything else!) off Rose, the blue-eyed witch enchants him. But his mother’s life remains in the balance. Sasha must find a way to protect his mother, sabotage his uncle’s plans, and win the woman who’s captured his heart without destroying everything she loves.
"A refreshing, whimsical contemporary romance with complex characters and bursts of emotion that tugs on your heartstrings. Kept me up till one AM reading!"~ Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author
Marquita Valentine writes small town romances that are anything but small. Lisa Kleypas, Carly Phillips and Rachel Gibson are among her favorite contemporary authors. Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man -- and if that doesn't work, they can console themselves with cheesy tater tots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.
You can find Marquita all over the internet:
