Welcome to my stop on Jen McLaughlin's (Diane Alberts) Stealing His Heart Blog Tour presented by InkSlinger PR.
Top 10 Reason Not to Blackmail Your Ex-Partner
Hello! I’m Diane Alberts (but I also write as Jen McLaughlin), and I am so happy to be here today! I have a new book out called STEALING HIS HEART with Entangled Publishing (Entangled Brazen), and it’s the second book in my Shillings Agency series. The first book was TEMPORARILY YOURS! I’m thrilled to be here talking about the second book in the series (which is loosely tied with FALLING FOR THE GROOMSMAN, which came out in June).
Since the central plot of the book is a security agent who has to blackmail his ex-partner—who is still a thief, unlike him—I thought it would be fun to list a bunch of fun reasons not to do exactly this.
They might have dirty, dirty things on you, too.
They wouldn’t hesitate to put these dirty, dirty things in the right (or wrong) hands.
You have a shared history…which means they have photos. More than likely? Embarrassing photos.
They won’t hesitate to use these photos to sign you up for dating sites, Face Book, Twitter….the possibilities are endless. As is the embarrassment.
They know your weaknesses. All of them.
They will exploit these to their fullest extent. Whether it’s your secret love for pickled radish or your fear of clowns…they will use it.
And then they will post it on every social media outlet available.
So will everyone else.
Even your mother.
Title: Stealing His Heart
Author: Diane Alberts
Series: Shillings Agency
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Entangled Publishing~Brazen Imprint
Shillings Agency employee Jake Forsythe is not happy to discover that the thief who he has to track down is none other than his ex-partner from his past. Now he’s forced to blackmail her into submission…or throw her in jail.
Tara Harris steals from the rich and corrupted, returning objects to their rightful owners one case at a time. When Jake shows up in her life, at first, she’s thrilled. But then when she finds out that she has to help the man she stole from or go to jail…it’s the choice between two evils.
These two can’t deny the burning passion between them, but when push comes to shove, they’ll have to lay their hearts and their lives on the line.
