For What It's Worth

Featured author: Rachel Harris

This has been a loooong hideous summer for me and blogging has taken a back seat. But there have been some book-ish bright spots and I still want to share my love for newly discovered authors/books.

I attended Authors After Dark in Savannah Georgia again this year. The #1 highlight of the con was Jeri Smith-Ready read from Bridge (one of my favorite stories EVER) at the YA reading panel.

Just before Jeri’s reading was Rachel Harris. I’ve had her YA book My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century on my shelf for months. I had been meaning to read it but you know how that goes….100+ books screaming for attention lol

Anyway – she read from the companion novel, A Tale of two Centuries, and I was hooked.

The My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series is a delightful change of pace. It’s FUN, romantic, educational, empowering and did I mention FUN? In a sea of angst I grabbed onto this like a lifeline. I‘m sending it on to my nieces because I know they’ll love it too.

17611022After the reading, Rachel was handing out a download code for her adult series – Taste the Heat (Love and Games #1), published by Entangled’s Bliss line, which has almost never failed me.

Taste the Heat was so sweet and had sizzling chemistry between the couple without being overly explicit. And the guy is SO nice. I swoon for the nice guys :-)


If your looking for something sweet and fun in either YA or adult Rachel Harris has got you covered!

  1. Sometimes summers are like that -- mine was rather hit or miss, too. But it sounds like you had a great time at Authors After Dark! I read some tweets about it from authors who were attending and it seems like a great event.

    1. It is a really cute series. A little on the younger side but I still enjoyed it. Read it when you need a break from all the YA drama llama hehe

      And I LOVED the hero in Taste the Heat. Fireman. Widowed dad. Chocolate paint. BOOM! Enough said lol

    1. Taste the Heat? I think you would like it. It's on the tame side (fade to black sex) but still rather steamy :-)

  6. Karen!!

    You are so awesome. Thank you so much for featuring me :) It was a pleasure meeting you at AAD, and I'm grateful you heard my reading and still wanted to pick the book up (he he, I get nervous reading aloud in crowds!)

    Thank you for supporting all my books. I hope you love Seven Day Fiance as much as Taste the Heat :)

    So much love
    xoxo

  7. Fun, romantic, AND educational? Be still my heart! I've had the first one on my radar for ages but never got around to picking it up either. I'm really glad to hear you liked it, I'll have to pick it up the next time I'm in the mood for something fluffy and fun.

    1. The YA series is on the younger end of YA but I found it refreshing not too young if you know what I mean. I could still relate.
