Around the globe and the goddess of love

Today, I have a treat for you: a guest blog from lovely Jillian Chantal, talking about her new book!

Jillian Chantal talks about Hot Pursuit

Many thanks to Maria for letting me drop by and talk a bit about my new release with Ellora’s Cave in the Blush line.  She was very gracious and let the pushy guest (that would be me) invite herself on over. 

The story is called Hot Pursuit and it truly is a chase across the globe.  Now, I know Maria is a big sci-fi fan and sadly, I can’t give her any of that genre for this post. This story is a straight-up adventure. My tag line is “Romantic Adventures with an International Flair” and this book delivers that in spades. Our heroine and hero go from New York City to Rio de Janeiro and then on to London, Germany and Switzerland before returning to New York. There may also be a trip to New Orleans in there somewhere. I know Maria would love it if I had a scene set on Venus but you know what? It is a love story and Venus is the goddess of love, so there ya go, Maria, we have a bit of another planet there for you (and I know, that’s stretching it). 

I used some of my favorite real places in this story but changed the names to protect the innocent like they do in the old TV shows.  I wrote about the chicken piccata in one of my favorite restaurants in Little Italy and it really is to die for just like their chocolate strawberry cannoli. If you ever head up to New York City, let me know and I’ll spill the beans on the real name of the place so you can eat the most divine meal known to man. 


Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type).

Racing across the globe to help a client isn’t part of corporate lawyer Evangeline Fleet’s normal legal services, but this is no ordinary client. She’s the beloved daughter of an old family friend. In her efforts to save the girl, Evangeline gets in over her head when sexy Interpol agent Cecil Waugh enters the picture in hot pursuit of her client. He follows the lawyer on an international chase from New York City to Rio de Janeiro where they forget their differences for a moment and fall into bed together. Before the sheets can even cool Evangeline makes a daring escape, leaving behind her lover.

Relentless in his quest to find Evangeline’s client, Cecil continues the chase across Europe. But it soon becomes unclear who his main target is—Evangeline’s charge, or the spitfire of a woman herself. Only time will tell how hot this pursuit will become.
