Virtual Book Tour ~ Love in One Night by Rebecca Royce With Giveaway

Melanie is a woman who handles her anxiety by preparing for the worst. She’s ready for any scenario—except love. Griffith is a man who has seen it all. Nothing surprises him until he meets Melanie. Can two people prepared for everything handle the uncertainty of love at first sight?

“Hello.” He smiled, hoping he wouldn’t sweat through his shirt. July in Texas proved to be brutally hot. “I’m looking for Melanie Cruz.”

“I don’t use Cruz anymore.” She extended her hand to shake his. “I’m Melanie Driscoll. How can I help you?”

He took her hand, dainty next to his, and shook it for a moment before dropping his own to his side. The drop-dead gorgeous redhead bombshell next to him happened to be Melanie Cruz—no, Driscoll. He wanted to pull her into his arms and kiss her until neither of them could breathe. Instead, his job required him to interrogate her.

“My name is Griffith McCallister, Ms. Driscoll. And I’ve been trying to get a hold of you for a few days. You’re a hard woman to track down.”

Her eyes, which had been warm and inviting even after he’d used her married name, cooled with his words.

“You didn’t get the impression when I didn’t return one single phone call you made that perhaps I did not wish to speak to you?”

She turned on her heel like a woman on a mission and stalked away from him. He couldn’t help the small grin that crossed his lips. She might live on some kind of hippie compound but Melanie Driscoll behaved exactly like every other woman he’d ever met when it came to him. She turned and walked the other way.

“Well now, Melanie.” He walked at a brisk pace to catch up with her. “I’m afraid you have to speak with me. I’ve been paid to find Victor, and find him, I will.”

She stopped her advance and whirled around to regard him. “I am not married to Victor anymore. However, I have no intention of discussing him with complete strangers who come looking for him.”

Still in love with the man, then. Good information for him to have.

As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They’ve just moved to Texas where Rebecca is discovering a new love for barbecue!

She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
