Seducing The Enemy by Noelle Adams Book Tour, Guest Post and Giveaway

Seducing the Enemy
by Noelle Adams


After being injured in a tragic accident as a child, Marietta Edwards has lived a sheltered life. Finally recovered, she wants to indulge in pleasures entirely new to her, beginning with seducing a sexy stranger. It’s her bad luck when she realizes that the man who awakened her body and emotions is none other than Harrison Damon. Their families have been embroiled in a fifteen-year legal battle. The man she’s given herself to is her worst enemy.

The heir to a vast fortune, Harrison believes the unforgettable night he spent with Marietta is just a fling. Then he discovers she’s an Edwards—a woman born of the family he despises most. He shouldn’t see her again, but no matter how he tries, he can’t quench his attraction for her. He doesn’t know what her game is, and he won’t let her seduce him again.

Can two people destined to be enemies find love with each other?


Once she finally picked out her book, he escorted her back to her suite.

In the hall outside her room, she glanced up at him, speaking for the first time in ten minutes. “I am sorry about your eye. Is it very bad?”

She seemed genuinely concerned and his resistance softened slightly. He remembered with a glimmer of amusement how exasperated she’d been in the library in battle with that wasp. “It’s fine. Next time, you’ll have to try harder.”

After a flicker of indignation, she offered a faint grin. “Yes. Next time, I’ll make sure I use a marble bookend instead of a magazine.”

He chuckled until he realized what she’d done. Then he slammed down his defenses again. She’d always been able to make him laugh, but what an absolute fool he was to so easily believe her sincerity.

The best defense was a good offense. “What is your game here?”

Marietta’s lips parted, and her gray eyes grew huge and round before blazing with anger. “I don’t have a game. And if you had a brain in your idiotic head, you’d know it.”

“I won’t let you harm me or my family.” He wasn’t touching her, but he’d stepped forward to trap her against the wall. “And I won’t let you take advantage of my uncle.”

She nearly sputtered with fury now. “What do you think I’m going to—” She broke off, and her teeth nearly snapped as she caught his implication. “Of course that’s what I’m doing! I’m here to seduce your uncle and trick him into marrying me. Then I can give him a son and disinherit all of you pesky nephews!”

He had briefly considered that possibility, but her sarcastic, bitter tone confirmed it probably wasn’t the truth. His uncle would never go for it anyway.

Still, her evident sincerity made him even more suspicious. He edged closer. She was so much smaller than he was—soft and seemingly fragile, quivering with her back against the wall.

But she wasn’t afraid of him.

“It won’t work.” He wanted to use his viper voice but couldn’t control himself enough to do it well. “Whatever it is you’re trying won’t work.”

She sucked in a harsh breath and stared up at him.

The sound of her caught breath reminded him how she’d sounded when he’d brought her to climax. He forced away the memory of Marietta’s passionate sweetness in bed. Her sensual, yielding body. Her apparent innocence. She’d been a virgin. At least, that’s what she’d said.

“You won’t be able to seduce him. And you won’t get me in bed again either, so you can save your pretty virgin routine for someone else.”

Guest Post

My days tend to look one of two ways—productive or unproductive. So, in trying to describe a day in my life, I had to chart out two kinds of days. But a normal work day usually looks like one or the other.
Productive Day
Wake up between four and five in the morning (whenever I wake up, since I never use an alarm clock).
Get coffee and computer and spend a couple of hours working on email, ebook formatting, covers, book trailers, proofreading, blog posts, or anything except writing from scratch. (I can’t do that so early in the morning.)
Get dressed, walk dog, get ready for work.
Go to work and accomplish a lot.
Do errands on way home.
Have dinner.
Go to bed.
Unproductive Day
Wake up between four and five in the morning. (I wake up early, even on unproductive days.)
Get coffee and computer and spend a couple of hours browsing online. I’ll check for an increase in sales or reviews every ten minutes or so (as if people are posting reviews or buying my books that early in the morning), or I’ll look at conversations on Facebook and Twitter, or I’ll pull up something I need to do and stare at it blankly before I go back to surfing the internet.
Get dressed, walk dog (whining about how slow she is), get ready for work.
Go to work and spend most of the time wishing I was done so I could get to writing.
Stop and buy junk food on the way home.
Sit on my couch with my computer and pull up whatever I’m supposed to be writing.
Turn on the TV, since naturally distractions increase focus.
Stare at TV for a while.
Turn back to computer and check for an increase in sales or reviews.
Write a couple of sentences and ponder if they’re any good.
Tell dog to stop staring.
Browse for stock photos for inspiration and find a good one for a book I’m planning to write two years from now.
Pull up Photoshop and make a book cover for the book I’m planning to write two years from now.
Get back to the book I’m actually working on and erase the two sentences I wrote before.
Tell dog to stop pacing.
Start to search for royalty-free music for a book trailer for the book I’m planning to write two years from now.
Check Facebook and Twitter for anything interesting.
Check for more reviews and find a negative one, so quickly close down browser to pretend it doesn’t exist.
Go back to looking for music for a book trailer and find a good piece. Download it and start working on a book trailer.
Remember dog never got fed, which explains the staring and pacing. Feed dog.
Feel exhausted after the grueling day and go to bed.

Noelle will be awarding a $25 to Amazon or B&N GC to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
