Welcome Kay Harris!

Please welcome fellow Rose, Kay Harris.
Thank you so much for having me here, Jennifer! I am excited to share with the story of how I came to write Book 2 of the I WANT MORRISON series “Lost on the Road to Love.”
This novel is total self-indulgence on my part. When I stepped back and looked at it after the rough draft was completed I realized that the book was me making my dreams come to fruition in writing. I laugh at myself now, but at the time I almost decided to scrap the thing and start over.
Fortunately, the cooler heads of my beta readers prevailed. Despite the novel being everything I wanted, it turns out my readers wanted it to. So now it is the delightful second novel in this four-book series.
So what’s so self-indulgent about this book? I’ll tick them off for you.

      1)   The first book I ever wrote “Love on the Rocks” features my deepest crush, my book boyfriend to end all book boyfriends, rock star Sean Rush. Since the hero in “Lost on the Road to Love” is Sean’s son, I got to bring an older, silver fox Sean into the book. (Be still my beating heart!)
      2)   I also got to bring back Henry’s mom, the fierce and feisty Park Ranger who fell in love with a rock star and made him want to settle down and become a family man. Go girl!
      3)   Chelsea gets to flaunt her wonderful, unapologetic nerdiness. When I introduced Chelsea Morrison in the first book in the series “Don’t Let Him Go” I made her a skinny, frizzy-haired, bespeckled kid sister. Growing up may have tamed her hair a little, but otherwise, Chelsea, her lanky frame, and her glasses are still in place. And she gets to be the heroine who falls in love with the hot son of a rock star – that’s right!
      4)   I am a travel addict. Over the course of eight months in this book I get to take my readers literally all over the world. We experience some amazing places in the U.S., South America, the Carribean, and Europe. Yay!
So there it is, the naked truth. While writing this book I was completely indulging in the things I wanted to see happen. I won’t apologize. I’ll just say, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Blurb:
Take two best friends, add some benefits, and it may take a map to find their way to love.

On the road for eight months as part of the crew for a travel show, Chelsea Morrison expects to work hard, endure long nights, and enjoy some wicked adventures. But she doesn’t expect to fall head over heels for the show’s star. 

Henry Rush, son of a legendary rock star, is leery of women. He learned early they only want him for the fame that rightly belongs to his father. But when an intense friendship with Chelsea leads to so much more, he has to confront the one thing he’s avoided all his life. 


Can these two friends navigate their way to a happy ending?

Excerpt:
I rested my hand on my hip. “Are you saying you find me irresistibly attractive?”

“Yes.” He gave a firm nod. There was no mirth in his eyes or in the set of his mouth.


I narrowed my gaze and scrutinized him. “I thought it was because we’re so close, remember.”

“Yes. And you’re insanely hot.”


“Am not!”


“Are too!”

I shook my head.


“Wanna make a bet on it?” he challenged.


“What?”


“You get naked for me. And if I am disappointed, you win the bet. If you’re as hot as I think you are under those clothes, I win. In fact, I already know what I want if I win. I want to see one of the films you’ve made.”

I stared at him, my mouth agape.

“What do you want if you win, Chels? Not that it matters. Because you won’t win.”

I finally found my voice. Because I couldn’t turn down this opportunity. “If I win, you sing for me.”

“Done.” He settled farther into the couch. “I’m ready when you are.”
