Guest Blog and Giveaway: Catch My Breath by Lynn Montagano



Meet the Main Characters of Catch My Breath, 
the first book of the Breathless Series.

Amelia “Lia” Meyers 

The feisty TV news producer has her world turned upside down when she crosses paths with one of Britain’s most eligible bachelors while on vacation in Scotland. The oldest of two daughters, Lia is smart and strong-willed. She’s direct and to the point and doesn’t put up with anybody’s nonsense. Still reeling from a nasty break up, Lia’s become more buttoned up and in control of her emotions. While she’s fiercely loyal to the ones she loves, she’s also guarded and cautious when it comes to new relationships, especially with guys like Alastair Holden. 


Alastair Holden 

The wealthy heir to his grandfather’s media empire, Alastair is known for being standoffish and private. Sexy, charming and mysterious, he only lets people see what he wants them to see and keeps everyone at arm’s length. Some say he’s arrogant and cold, and even a little dark. He’s a complicated man. A man with a past. A man who never lets his guard down or lets his emotions get the best of him. It’s that mysterious side that makes him all the more attractive to Lia.

Book Description: 

Lia Meyers' plan for a relaxing Scottish vacation is short-lived when one uncharacteristic moment of clumsiness lands her in the arms of a dangerously attractive Englishman.

The perfect opportunity for a much needed holiday romance? Wrong! Lia’s still reeling from the mother of all bad breakups, and she really doesn't have the patience for Alastair Holden – despite his effortless charm and sexy British accent.

Arrogant and totally inscrutable, he's exactly the sort of guy she wants to avoid but can't: the man behind the mystery proves just too tempting to resist.

Drawn to him, Lia is forced to battle with her own insecurities, and the closer they become, the more she recognizes her own weaknesses as she peels away his layers with every night they spend together. Discovering the past Alastair is so desperate to conceal, Lia must decide if they can heal one another together or if their deepest fears will tear them apart.

Excerpt:

“You’re quite lovely, Lia. Pity you’re leaving soon. I’d like to take you—” he paused, tracing his thumb over my lower lip. I shuddered. “—out. Again.”
“You would?” I asked hoarsely.
Nodding, he stroked the curve of my cheek. “Are you coming back to Glasgow after the wedding?”
“Yeah…yes. Saturday.”
Backing away from him, I bumped into the arm of the couch. I almost toppled over it, but managed to steady myself. Being in his presence made me so damn skittish, it was frustrating.
“I’m supposed to make an appearance at a cocktail party for my grandfather’s company.”
Oh good, he’s busy.
“You should come. Or we could go out to dinner.” Like an apparition, he was in front of me, stroking his fingers along my arm. “What do you say? Fancy spending the night with me?”
The unspoken promise behind that question nearly shattered me on the spot. This was supposed to be an easy trip across the pond. Go to the wedding, hang out with the family and go home. Not fend off an amazingly sexy, impossible-to-resist guy.
“Stop overthinking,” he ordered.
Stormy, dark eyes carved a path through my skull. I wilted beneath the strength of his stare. A shaky breath escaped my lips as he traced his finger along my jaw and down my neck. He drew me into his hypnotic orbit with such ease. I was powerless to resist.
“This is inevitable, Amelia. Don’t deny it.”
Inevitable? Each stroke of his fingers left a fiery trail in its wake. The smooth, soft skin of his cheek brushed against mine.
“Come with me.”
Oh Jesus, those three words. I jolted out of his seductive haze like I was on fire, trying to avoid his eyes. His expression was one of pure lust.
“No,” I whispered.
His mouth fell open slightly in surprise. “No?”
“No,” I repeated, louder. “Do you not hear that word very often?”
Impassivity dominated his features. He studied me as though I was the most confusing creature on the planet. We stood so close to one another I was overcome by his intoxicating scent. 
“Why not?”
“Because,” I sighed. “I’m not interested.”
“In what, Lia? Food or drinks?”

“You know what I mean.”
