Book Spotlight and Giveaway


Welcome. Today I have with me the fabulous Roxanne St. Claire, NY TIMES bestselling author of more than twenty-five romance and suspense books. Oh, and she's giving away a FREE copy of her latest, SPACE IN HIS HEART!

BLURB:
When PR superstar Jessica Marlowe is tasked with making America fall in love with space exploration, she knows exactly what to do: find some smokin’ hot astronaut eye-candy and make him NASA's poster boy. When she meets Navy fighter pilot turned astronaut Commander Deke Stockard, the shiver down her spine tells her she's found her man. Consumed with the safety of the upcoming shuttle launch, Deke has zero interest in being part of a lame media blitz--but orders can't be ignored. He also can’t ignore the way Jessica's sexy smile and single-minded determination throw his well-ordered life into a tailspin....and ignite an undeniable attraction. But when the next launch becomes a ticking time bomb that could spell the end for NASA, passion and courage won't be enough to reach the stars. Deke and Jessica will have to work together, and hope they both have space in their hearts...for love.

EXCERPT:
Who the hell did she think she was, plastering his picture on that screen and making pronouncements about sex appeal?
He started down the steps toward her. “We don’t go to NBA playoff games or movie premieres. We don’t seek celebrity status.” He let the disdain drop like bombs with every word and every step. “We are aviators and engineers and explorers. We develop experiments to advance medicine.” He paused as he reached the halfway mark, his gaze locked on his pretty target. “We send satellites into orbit to monitor terrorism.” He moved closer, purposely letting his voice intensify with each step. “We fix billion-dollar telescopes so scientists can see into the past and the future.”
At last, he stood on the same level, a few feet away from her, glad for the advantage of his height since she wore those stilts on her feet. “That’s what we do.” He leaned in closer so she’d inch away. She didn’t. “It doesn’t involve Jay Leno.”
A spark lit her eyes, but he was blind now to her fiery appeal, furious with himself for admiring her physical assets while she was busy announcing that he’d become some sort of NASA poster boy.
They stood face-to-face, the audience no doubt spellbound at the unexpected showdown. He waited for her to back down.
But, son of a bitch, she just crossed her arms and took a step toward him.

Loved the blurb and the excerpt was great. Now want to find out what happens between these two. Big fan of Roxanne's Angelino's series. This book looks great and would love to win and read.
My questions for you are: Is this going to be a stand alone book or going to write as part of a series? Also are you going to write any more books for the Angelino series?
Thanks for the new book and chance to win.

Hey Kelly - thanks for having me! To answer Chrisbails questions: SPACE is a stand alone story, but completely fun! I would LOVE to write more Angelino books (Gabe!) but won't be able to for about a year as I meet other contractual obligations with my publishers. After that, I certainly plan on it! xo

Hi Kelly and Roxanne.
Loved the blurb and excerpt. Roxanne, just wanted to say how much I love your Bullet Catcher series. A friend introduced me to the first one and I've bought every one since. Also enjoyed the Angelino series. It's great to hear you'll be writing more of them.
