Holy smokes. I’ve been running around the internet like a promo whore telling folks all about my new release, Cake. And my friend Barbara Winkes was awesome enough to let me hang at her place today.
Because Barbara is all about woman-power, I thought I’d introduce you all to Elana, one of the two main characters in Cake.
Elana is a licensed therapist and life coach. She’s also still madly in love with her ex who is getting married to someone else (a dude, even). Elana is the sort who can take someone else’s life and turn it into a nice tidy. And maybe she’s the sort to run over her ex’s new boyfriend’s mailbox. And maybe she’s the sort to get community service at the local women’s prison.
She’s also the sort to go to her ex’s wedding even though it’s a terrible idea. And she’s the sort to bravely ask her new love interest to take a chance.
I hope you get a chance to introduce yourself to Elana. And I hope you find her as charmingly broken and I do.
A sexy romance about two women, one inconvenient wedding, and a shared love of cake.
Kelly and Elana’s relationship is a recipe for disaster. First, they meet at a wedding, and that never works. Second, Kelly’s older brother is marrying Elana’s ex-lover. And third, Elana is still painfully, undeniably in love with said ex.
When it comes to other people’s lives, Elana Verdad is an expert. As a licensed psychologist and life coach, she helps people overcome obstacles. Her own life, on the other hand, is a disaster. Her lover left her for a man, so she drove over his mailbox accidentally on purpose. Now, not only did the judge take away her driver’s license, he also assigned her to community service at the local women’s prison. In what may be her worst idea ever, Elana decides to crash their wedding.
Kelly Miller may not understand her brother’s rush to marry his girlfriend, but when he asks her to bake his wedding cake, it’s not as if she can refuse. She’s in the catering business after all. At the wedding, she meets a beautiful, complicated, and seriously damaged woman. Although Kelly knows it’s crazy, she’s drawn to her nonetheless.
Despite the reasons they shouldn’t be together, there’s still an undeniable something between them. All they need is a chance to enjoy their slice of the cake.
