Lady Bea Lindsey is desperate. She's newly engaged to a very nice but dull gentleman and is fully aware
that if she wants any joy in her marriage bed, she'll have to call the shots. But first she needs to be
taught. And who better to instruct her than irresistibly sexy rogue Ralph Sylvester?Ralph is surprised by
Bea's request, but he can't turn down the woman he's lusted after for the past nine months. He agrees on
one condition. For the next seven days and nights, Bea must relinquish total control to him. No pleasure
will be off-limits, no act of lovemaking forbidden, no desire too shocking.It's every man's fantasy. Until the
student surpasses the teacher...
A lifelong romance reader, Hope Tarr dreamt of being a writer ever since she first touched the bright
orange keys of her Fisher Price typewriter. That dream has weathered a master's degree in psychology
and a Ph.D. in education, as well as a seven-year stint as a research consultant in Washington, D.C.
One day in 1993 after writing one too many technical reports, she sat herself down to face the cold, hard
truth: she didn't want to analyze people or teach them. What she wanted was to write about them!Setting
is an important aspect of Hope's books. It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life (Harlequin Blaze, December 2006),
Hope's Blaze debut, takes place in her native Baltimore, Maryland, home to steamed hard-shell crabs,
neighborhood enclaves like Little Italy and Highland Town, and wonderfully quirky characters who hail
strangers and friends alike as "Hey, hon."For more than five years Hope lived in Fredericksburg, Virginia,
and the downtown historic district served as the setting for her paranormal romance, The Haunting.
Hope's heroine, Dr. Maggie Holliday, just happens to buy a historic house that looks a heck of a lot like
her creator's former turn-of-the-century Victorian.A second-chance-at-love story set in New York City and
Belize, Every Breath You Take is the first book to be written from Hope's new home: Manhattan. In the
style of Candace Bushnell's Sex and the City, the novel offers a rich panorama of Hope's favorite spots—
Union Square, The Strand bookstore, The Roosevelt Hotel and Sardi's.Hope adores chatting with readers.
