Ineligble Bachelor by Kathryn Quick Book Tour and Giveaway


Ineligible Bachelor
by Kathryn Quick
Frederika “Freddy” McAllister has loved Logan Gabriel since…well, forever. Unfortunately, she’s  spent most of forever in the dreaded “friend zone,” harboring what has to be the longest-running crush of all time. But now Freddy has a plan to make Logan see her as more than just the girl next door: She’ll enter him in Elan Magazine’s Eligible Bachelor Contest, then swoop in to soothe his bruised ego when he loses.

There’s just one tiny problem: Logan wins! And that means he’s headed to a mansion in New Jersey where six beautiful women will vie for his affections on reality TV. Making matters worse, the producers want Freddy to tag along and help choose his ideal match. Suddenly her perfect plan becomes a perfect nightmare, as Freddy scrambles to outwit conniving contestants and convince the man of her dreams that the woman of his has been by his side all along.

Excerpt:
She bumped into him, and he steadied her by slipping his arm around her waist, his hand near her hip. The contact sent a zing of excitement up her spine. Could he see her? Was infrared vision his first best quality? She took in a breath as the heat from his palm snaked up her spine and spread through her body.
Carpe diem, her mind screamed. Seize the day. If she took just one step, she could wrap her arms around him. Another small step and she could touch her lips to his and finally get the kiss she’d imagined about a million times since the eighth grade. Carpe diem. Smart, those ancient Romans and their Latin wisdom. It was now or never.
            In anticipation, she tilted her head and started to lean toward him with parted lips when lightning flashed again. In the finite moment in which they were suspended in the illumination, she could see Logan’s gaze lowering to her mouth, which she managed to place only about an inch from his. He looked back into her eyes and his arm tightened around her.
            And then the blackness came again.
            She expected the explosion of thunder to come, but not the long, slow breath she heard Logan let out as if to steady himself. Quickly, she pulled back. “I guess I misjudged where you were,” she said as the thunder silenced.
            “Did you?” he whispered.
            The warmth coming from his body enveloped her along with his earthy, male scent that mixed perfectly with the smell of summer rain. She inhaled deeply to capture it. “Yes. It’s dark in here.”
            In the ensuing flashes of lightning, she memorized the way he looked in the muted light. The angles of his jaw, the shape of his mouth, the way his hair framed his face—she committed each to memory like frames on film so she could fantasize later, after she explained away the idiotic look she probably had on her face.
            “We should light some candles,” she muttered, not knowing what else to say.
            In the next flash of light, she saw his gaze still on her mouth. Her chest nearly burst as the breath she had trapped there begged for release.
            His lips parted. “Lighting candles could be dangerous. Something could catch fire.”



Kathryn Quick Bio
Born long ago in a place not so far away, Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, Kathryn Quick has been writing since the Sisters in St. Casmir’s Grammar School gave her the ruled yellow paper and a number two pencil.  She writes contemporary and career romances, romantic comedies, historical romances
as well as urban fantasy.

She has been a member of New Jersey Romance Writers and Romance Writers of America since 1990 and considers it an honor to have been NJRW President in 1992 and 2001.  She is one of the founding members of Liberty States Fiction Writers, a multi-genre writers’ organizations dedicated to furthering the craft of writing and helping aspiring writers move onto publication.

Kathye originally wanted to be President of the United States or an Organic Chemist, but somehow life got in the way and she got married right out of high school and had a set of twins two years later.  The Presidency seemed out of reach and night school to get her Ph.D. to create new molecule that would ultimately result in the betterment of humankind seemed a little time consuming while trying to raise twins, so she decided to write instead.

In her "other" life, Kathye is married to her real-life hero Donald and has three grown sons all having adventures of their own and three “bonus” grandchildren.  She is a die-hard New Jersey Devils fan and works for Somerset County government (as close as she could get to the White House) and is plotting a novel about a new molecule that will ultimately result in the betterment of humankind.
