Stroke of Love by Melissa Foster Blog Tour with Review

The Remingtons, #2

A New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance

New York Times Bestselling Author
Melissa Foster

Published by World Literary Press

Release March 3, 2014

Kate Parello runs a volunteer program in Belize for Artists for International Aid, where she deals with self-centered artists who use the program as a means to repair their marred reputations. She loves the country, the people, and what AIA stands for, but too many diva volunteers have turned her off to press-seeking celebrities altogether and left her questioning the value of the volunteer program. When she meets incredibly handsome and charming Sage, he stirs emotions she hasn’t felt for ages, even though he represents the things she despises.
Laid-back artist Sage Remington escapes his wealthy lifestyle in the Big Apple for a two-week journey of self-discovery to figure out how a guy who has so much can feel so empty. When he meets ultra-organized Kate, who lives her life the way he’s always dreamed of living his, the attraction is too hot to ignore, but Sage is there to figure out what’s missing in his life, not to find a woman.
Every look, and every late-night chat in the romantic jungle brings them closer together, but Sage can barely think past stripping away Kate’s misconceptions about him. Kate fights him every step of the way—even though she finds it hard to ignore the strikingly handsome, generous-to-a-fault artist who wants to do nothing more than right the wrongs of the world—and love her to the ends of the earth.

Book 2 of the Love in Bloom Remington series.

What do you get when you put a hot artist, a pretty volunteer and the jungle together? One steamy story!!

Sage is one hot artist with a huge heart, but something is missing. He volunteers for Artists for International Aid (AIA) and finds himself on a bus full celebrities, a PR rep and a cute little volunteer that runs the program like a drill sergeant. She instantly has his attention.

Kate has been involved with AIA for 5 years, 2 of those years she has been in Punta Palacia helping to provide educational, medical and environmental programs to the community. She only has a few more weeks in this location and then she will be reassigned. She does not have time for a two week fling with a sexy artist.

Sage has figured out what is missing but can he convince Kate?

I am addicted to this series. I can't put my finger on what it is but I love the characters. You can relate to them on some level.  I want to start at the beginning of the Love in Bloom series if they are all written like this.

The Remingtons, #1

Release February 17, 2014

Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the twenty-five years she’s been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier she came to Dex seeking comfort, and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man.

Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the U.S. He’s handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb that he’s not sure he’ll ever find a reason to feel again.

A chance encounter sparks intense desires in Ellie and Dex. Desires that make her want to run—and make him want to feel. A combination of lust and fear leads these young lovers down a dangerous path. Is it possible to cross a burned bridge or are they destined to be apart forever?
