A Wenchy Delight - Holley Trent


I love Holley Trent’s books.  Maybe it’s because she sets a lot of them in North Carolina, her home state (and mine), the way her books also have humor and snark, or could it be because they are excellent books?  Needless to say, Her Resident Jester waits for me on my Kindle.  This gal definitely needs to take a reading day to enjoy some of the books crying to be read and this is the one I plan to open first!

A little about Holley:
Holley Trent is a Carolina girl gone West. Raised in rural coastal North Carolina, she has Southern sensibilities but her adventurous spirit drove her to Colorado for new experiences.
Holley writes sassy contemporary romances threaded with oodles of conversational humor, and fantasy/paranormal romances set in her home state.
Her protagonists regularly fall victim to her odd sense of humor and find themselves in improbable situations (with happily-every-after outcomes). Holley's cast of characters tends to swear, drink and do a fair amount of carousing, but they're generally well-intentioned and obey all laws and ordinances. Usually.

Her Resident Jester
By Holley Trent
Published by Musa Publishing

 Marketing executive Shane Andrews’s reluctant participation in a research study leads to the stunning discovery she needs immediate surgery.

Out of sorts, and in a moment of spectacular tactlessness, she insults a man wearing a red rubber nose and big floppy shoes. He turns out to be Derek Palmer: Edenton’s hottest young surgeon…and the resident observing her operation.

With her body and pride both on the mend, Shane hides out to prevent further humiliation. She can’t avoid the gorgeous clown too long, however. Edenton is a small town, and Derek isn’t content with letting her wallow. What kind of clown would he be if he did?

Her Resident Jester is available for purchase in most major eBook formats at the Musa store and also at third-party retailers like Amazon and All Romance eBooks.

Me, the life of the party?

*snort*

I'm the one who clutches a drink and sways dangerously.

I'm glad you weren't there to see the fit of giggles I dissolved into at the CRW fall retreat over some dirty MadLibs. Took me a full minute to catch my breath.

Too much wine.
