Celebrating the Release Of LuAnn McLane's HE'S NO PRINCE CHARMING

LuAnn McLane writes for Signet Eclipse, an imprint of New American Library. Although she still enjoys penning sensual contemporary trade-sized romances, she now also writes romantic comedy in mass market including DARK ROOTS AND COWBOY BOOTS, DANCING SHOES AND HONKY TONK BLUES, A LITTLE LESS TALK AND A LOT MORE ACTION, REDNECK CINDERELLA and her most recent HE'S NO PRINCE CHARMING.

McLane lives in Florence, Kentucky, just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. When she takes breaks from writing, she enjoys long walks, watching chick flicks with her daughter and tries to keep track of her three active sons. She loves to hear from her readers. You can reach her through her website http://www.luannmclane.com/.


A new Southern Fried Fairy Tale from LuAnn McLane!

At sixteen, Dakota Dunn was America's Pop Princess. Now twenty-five, she's all grown up-and definitely washed up. She decides to head to her parents' lakefront retreat in Tennessee, fixing to write songs and transform her image from squeaky clean to kickin' country.

Turns out her folks have handed things over to sexy, if cranky, cowboy Trace Coleman - a former bull riding champion benched by injuries. He's none too happy about Dakota's arrival - and makes no secret of it. But though Trace is rough around the edges, Dakota feels a pull of attraction she can't quite shake. For all his brooding, Trace has an animal magnetism that may just lead Dakota to dig in her heels and hold on tight...

  5. Congrats, LuAnn.
    Going to get mine at the next local signing (Christmas signing at B&N WestChester at the latest).

    Don't enter me--I already HAVE RC!

  6. Good morning, LuAnn! I'm really enjoying He's No Prince Charming so far. I haven't read Redneck Cinderella so I'm not sure how spicy it is, but HNPC seems a little spicier than your other mass market releases. Is this a new trend for you or am I just imagining it?

  7. Congrats and goodluck!!!


  8. This sounds like a fun read, as all your books are. Congrats. I loved the excerpt, what a fun opening!

  9. Thanks everybody! Yes, Lisa it's a little bit steamier than my other mass markets. And this one isn't in first person because I needed to have Trace's point of view in this book. I was worried that the humor would suffer but so far readers have said it has made them lol :-)

  10. Thanks Keri! I'll be there and it will be nice to have the sale for Linda's store. I'll be at the KYRWA booksigning at the JoBeth in Lexington October 31 and at the Kentucky Book Fair in Frankfort Nov. 7th

  11. Emmanualle, thannks so much! I hope you like Trace Coleman... he is one hot cowboy but with a vumnerable edge that makes a girl want to hug him :-)

  12. Oh and by the way DeNita is going to have a very fun announcement about a fan club just for my readers. I am so excited! (we will have to create a handshake) hahaha

  13. Yes indeed - stay tuned for the fantastic fan club news - btw, save your receipts for the book to get some exclusive goodies - hint, hint nudge, nudge, say no more....

  14. Hi, LuAnn.

    What is your opinion on book trailers? Do you think they help in book sales?

    Tracey D

    Oh, the fan club sounds like fun. I'm looking forward about the announcement.

  15. Ohhh, I love your books and I'm so excited to be able to celebrate a new one with you. I'll be heading out over the weekend to get myself a copy!

    How much of your characters are pulled from people you actually know. Like do you have crazy relatives (like who doesn't) that you mold into fun secondary characters?

  16. 'He's No Prince Charming' - well I hope not. Where would be the fun if he was? Can't wait to read this. Cheers!!

  17. Now this sounds fun. I mean who doesn't love a brooding sexy cowboy?

    Groovy cover by the way. How much say do you get in your covers? And how many books do you plan in this series, so many come to mind. Bet you can't help but have a blast thinking up story lines!

    Good luck with the book and I know it's going right on my to buy list!

  18. Just leaving my email in case I get lucky. I forgot before.
