Book Details:
Title:    Forked (Frenched Series Book #2)
Author:   Melanie Harlow
Genre:   NA, Contemporary Romance, Humor
Release Day:         October 20, 2014    

Synopsis:
Twenty-eight year old Coco Thomas knows the recipe for disaster:

1) Agree to plan last-minute engagement blowout for spoiled Mafia princess before you realize her choice of caterer is Nick Lupo, a despicably gorgeous young chef with a hot new restaurant in town, a reality TV show victory, and a romantic past with you—one that did not end well.

2) Strike a deal with Nick in which you agree to spend a weekend with him in exchange for his services, under the strict conditions there will be no talking about the past, no second chances, and definitely no sex.

3) Violate all three conditions within 24 hours and spend two glorious days remembering what made you fall for the sexy, egotistical bastard in the first place, and why it hurt so much when he broke your heart.

Add one road trip, plenty of good scotch, and endless spoonfuls of chocolate cake batter drizzled over your body and licked off inch by oh-my-God-yes-right-there inch, then just admit it.

You’re totally FORKED.

Title:    Frenched (Frenched Series Book #1)
Author:   Melanie Harlow
Genre:   NA, Contemporary Romance, Humor

Synopsis:
When Tucker Branch, playboy heir to Branch Bolt and Screw, screws and bolts a week before their wedding, Mia Devine wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity. But her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it’s drowned in Bordeaux, so Mia grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of her luxurious Paris honeymoon—alone.

She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.

The easygoing bartender’s scruffy good looks and less-than-sympathetic ear annoy her at first, but when she takes him up on his offer to show her around the city, she discovers that the romance of Paris isn’t just a myth.

Nor is the simultaneous O.

The last thing Mia needs is another doomed love affair, but since she only has a week, she figures she might as well enjoy la vie en O with Lucas while she can. But each day—and night—with Lucas is better than the last, and suddenly her heart is telling her this is more than a rebound fling.

Is it just the seduction of Paris…or could this be the real thing?

Author:   Melanie Harlow
Genre:   NA, Contemporary Romance, Humor

Synopsis:
Mia Devine fell hard for Lucas Fournier after their magical week in Paris. But eight months later, the free-spirited half-French musician still hasn't made any promises about their future. And as magnifique as long-distance phone sex is, nothing compares to the real thing.

Fed up with stolen weekends and lonely nights, Mia flies to New York armed with a list of reasons why they should take the next step, but an unexpected guest in Lucas's apartment derails her plans. He’s been keeping secrets--worse, he claims he's happy with the way things are.

Without the magic of Paris, can their mismatched love survive?

INTERVIEW WITH MELANIE HARLOW

Describe Coco in one sentence.
Coco is impulsive, feisty, loyal, lovely, and fun—definitely a girl with a healthy appetite.

Describe Nick in one sentence.
Nick is gorgeous, talented, confident, charming, and generous—everything you DON’T want your ex-boyfriend to be.

Favorite and least favorite scene to write in Forked?
I loved writing the scene where they see each other again for the first time after seven years. Their attraction and chemistry was still there, despite their rocky past. My least favorite scene was probably the gut-wrenching scene in the lake where she finally asks him for the truth about why he left her. Forked is a sexy romantic comedy so the tone is mostly light throughout, but for that scene, I had to get a little angsty.

Whats your guilty pleasure?
Drinking wine and eating chocolate in bed while reading sexy novels. I have spilled a lot of red wine doing this because I can’t tear my eyes from my book as I reach for the glass!

If you werent an author what would you be doing right now?
Working on choreography—I’m also a dance teacher and studio manager.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Managing to publish novels and maintain a pretty full-time job while keeping my kids fed and watered. Some days, it is utterly overwhelming.

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Hmm. How about young Gene Kelly? I’d like to dance with him.

What is your go to snack food when writing?
COFFEE. That’s it.

If you could sit down face to face with any of your characters, who would you choose and why?
Joey from the Speak Easy series. I’d like to sit on his lap.

What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
Visit Egypt (also Morocco and Greece—is that cheating?)
Take Italian classes.
See my books in a book store.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I love where I live, but I often fantasize about having a cabin in the country all to myself. But it would have to be near a lake, because I love lakes. I’m outgoing in many ways, but I really enjoy solitude as well. I also think a little apartment on the Left Bank would be lovely!
Favorite Word and Least Favorite Word?
I often joke that my favorite word is yes because I have trouble saying no to people. But I word I really love is cathedral. I just think it’s beautiful. Least favorite…honestly, probably cunt when used as a name-calling insult.

Biggest fear?
Failing as a parent.

Deepest regret?
Waiting so long to start writing seriously.

Favorite memory?
Wow, that’s a hard one, but I have really wonderful childhood memories of visiting my grandparents’ cottage on Lake Huron with my family.

Worst flaw?
Impatience. But I kick myself for being too trusting/naive a lot too.

Most annoying pet peeve?
When I’m trying to write and people stop by unannounced. Or when I’m writing a love scene and I hear “MOMMMMMMMYYYYYYYY!”

If you could change one thing about yoursef…what would it be?
Oh dear. Well, I wish I were a better person all the way around, but in terms of being an author, I wish I wrote faster.

Either/Or Questions:
Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate
Coco or Nick? Nick
Warm or Cold? Warm
Early Bird or Night Owl? Early Bird
Pain or Pleasure? Pleasure
