Ally Blake stopped by this morning to answer a question for us. Check out her answer and then enter the giveaway below!
WHAT FIVE THINGS WOULDN’T LORI KEEP IN HER PURSE?
AN IPOD. Lori’s a workaholic; mighty ambitious and super-focused on her career so the only music she finds time to listen to are the CDs her driver’s daughters make him listen to in the car. Funny, because – although she doesn’t know it yet – she is about to fall for one of the biggest rock stars in the world!
FLATS. High heels only for our girl. And why not? Lori’s the CEO of a haute couture shoe brand; wouldn’t you take advantage?!
TISSUES. Lori’s pretty tough. Had to be after her father left, leaving her to look after her little sister when her mother fell apart. Emotions are dangerous things and now her heart is for pumping blood, nothing more.
A LITTLE BLACK BOOK. Lori likes her men clean, neat, well-off and not at all needy. She likes it ever better if they last as long as a good steak dinner…no more. Which is why when she finds herself looking forward to her guitar lessons with big, scruffy, languorous rocker Dash Mills she’s set completely off her game.
MOMENTOS FROM HOME. Lori isn’t the least bit sentimental. She’s well aware that the events of her past made her the never-say-die go-getter she is today, but that doesn’t mean she needs a daily reminder. Pressing forward is her motto. Though since meeting Dash, and watching how he enjoys the simple things in life she’s beginning to wonder if she’s played it all wrong…
Resisting the Musician
Bridal shoe company owner Lori Hanover is in way over her head. First, her designer sister has fallen head over heels for the rock star fiancé of a client – talk about bad PR! Now her business is falling apart. Lori’s only hope in saving her company is making the world believe it was true love, even if she’s not so sure herself. Her best bet? A song. For this she turns to the most frustrating musical recluse in America, Dash Mills, a man who could pass for Thor’s sexier brother. And even though this former rock superstar agrees to help, it comes at a price…
When Lori agrees to Dash’s terms, he thinks she’s the one in for a challenge. But the more time he spends with this spitfire bombshell, the more tempted he is to play her—in more ways than one. But Dash left behind the rock and roll life for a reason. And seductive as Lori may be, if she drags him back into that world, this time he won’t forgive himself…or her.

EXCERPT from RESISTING THE MUSICIAN:
“What compelled you to ignore the ‘No Trespassing Or My Vicious Dogs will Eat Your Liver For Brunch’ sign?” asked Dash.
In sentences three words and less his voice was riveting. Longer it was rich and smooth, with a hint of an accent Lori couldn’t pick.
“The sign lied,” Lori prevaricated, as if she didn’t have a million things she ought to be doing with her time other than standing in this doorway in the middle of nowhere falling into the slumberous dark eyes of a hulking stranger.
His wide mouth flickered up at one corner. She would have bet a mint the guy was well aware how a smile like that would play with any female within range.
“If you want liver-eaters for dogs,” she said, standing taller to negate the urge to fan herself, “they need discipline.”
One meaty shoulder lifted into a shrug. “Never been that keen on the stuff myself.”
He touched the side of his nose and she wondered how many times it had been broken. And how big the other guys must have been.
