Passions of a Papillon by Tara Lain - Blog Tour with Author's Guest Post, Excerpt Link, and Giveaway

A cool-hearted guy meets a big-eared dog who takes him to a hot vet hiding a dark secret.

Passions of a Papillon
by Tara Lain


After you’ve sold your soul to the devil, can you renegotiate with a dog?

Brilliant defense attorney, Finn Morgenstern, knows the worst guys pay best, so defending slimeball, Rance Franklin, becomes his path to senior partner and a whole lot of benefits. But then a walk home to his pricey townhouse brings him face-to-ears with a batshit-crazy little dog who just won’t leave him alone. So Finn takes the dog to the local veterinarian to find out how to get her back to her owners. 

Hello vet! Emerson “Em” Fairweather sure doesn’t match his stodgy name. Tall, platinum blond, and gorgeous, Em puts the pet in pet ownership. But Em has ugly secrets and Batshit dog is up to her ears in larceny. Suddenly Finn is the one who needs defending, and he’s faced with a choice between what he thought was important and a whole new batshit-crazy life.

Hi! I’m delighted to be here to celebrate the release of my new romance, PASSIONS OF A PAPILLON. This book is dear to my heart for reasons you may know.

Here are a few of those fun facts –
·         This is the first in a new series that will feature the pets of men who all go to the same vet in Corona del Mar, CA.
·         Of course, the first book has to feature a papillon, since my dog, Jolie, is one. She’s an 8.5 lb. terror, way too smart for her own good, sassy, barky, and totally lovable
·         The dog in the book does a lot of precocious things, but they’re not far-fetched for a papillon. They are the smartest toy dog and are the only natural toy on the top 10 list of smartest dogs -- up there with border collies.
·         Corona del Mar is a charming seaside town in southern California just a few minutes north of Laguna Beach where I set many of my books. It’s in Newport Beach, however, the most expensive city in the U.S., so it’s not a place everyone can live.
·         My heroes are a lawyer with a hardening heart who is softened by a dog – and the gorgeous vet with a lot to hide who he finds to take care of her.
·         This is my first brand new, full length novel to go straight into KU, so if you’re a member, you can get it for free.
I hope you love PASSIONS OF A PAPILLON! This is what one advance reviewer said,
This is an absolutely brilliant and funny read, with a crazy loveable dog and stereo typical bad guys, and of course the 2 heroes who fight for good. Tara has written a wonderful book that I know I will be rereading again and again. Warning - Batshit steals every scene as any princess should, and as a cat person it is really saying something that I neeeeeed to have this dog in my life. It is a real one sitting read, a little bit of angst, lots of love, some great one liners and as mentioned a batshit crazy dog you just fall in love with. Wish I could give it more stars.”
