Happy holidays! All month long meet some of our authors and their best selling books.
Today we’re getting to know Rebecca Brooks and her hero and heroine from Wrong Bead, Right Girl!
I’m Rebecca Brooks and I write sexy, heartfelt contemporary romance. I love when my characters find their forever person and their chosen families. And I love how the holidays are all about togetherness! Spending time with friends, family, pets, favorite book characters, or however you like to recharge, it’s a time to stop, breathe, and take stock of what matters. I hope you enjoy the season, however you celebrate!
Favorite Holiday Song: The Maccabeats are a Jewish group that parodies contemporary songs, and they’re hilarious. Two of my favorites: “Latke Recipe” that shows how to make latkes to the tune of “Shut Up and Dance” and “Candlelight” explaining the story of Hanukkah to the tune of “Dynamite.”
Favorite Holiday Food: Whatever dessert my mother-in-law is making. Orange-lemon cheesecake with citrus fresh from the trees in her yard? Yes. Mini pumpkin pies? That totally counts as breakfast.
Favorite Holiday Movie: My BFF says this makes me a monster, but DIE HARD. Guy tries to get home for Christmas. Hijinks ensue. Definitely counts as a holiday movie!
Are you the type of person who on November 1st…thinks it’s time to break out the Christmas music or thinks It’s not even Thanksgiving yet folks! Don’t tell December, but my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. The food! The love! All holidays should get their due, and November 1 is all about figuring out what delicious veggie sides to serve.
Are you one of those shoppers who has gone through your list and are done shopping well ahead of Christmas or are you elbowing people out of your way on Christmas Eve to finish your shopping? Thank God for two-day shipping. That’s all I have to say!
Get to Know The Characters From Wrong Bed, Right Girl…
Hero’s Name: Reed Bishop
Heroine’s Name: Talia Lassiter
What would the perfect gift your hero would give your heroine and why?
Cozy new slippers and a robe. Talia is a ballerina, and Reed knows how to pamper her just right.
What would the perfect gift your heroine would give your hero and why?
An extra pair of handcuffs so they don’t have to keep using his for, ahem, after-work activities.
Where would your hero or heroine secretly hang some mistletoe to catch an extra special holiday kiss and why?
In Reed’s childhood bedroom. Reed has a huge family, and things get pretty cozy when he and Talia visit. But they know they can sneak in plenty of kisses as long as they keep it quiet…

“Reed?” she murmured into his shoulder.
“We’re still not on a date…are we?”
He felt her shuffle closer as they danced. Or maybe that was him stepping in, drawing her to him, sliding his hand dangerously down.
“Okay,” she said. “Just checking.”
“What would make it a date?” he asked.
“With my track record, you’d have to insult my career, assert your superior taste in wine, and stick me with the tab.”
“No offense, but you have terrible taste in men.”
She tilted her head up and laughed. The sound alone shouldn’t have made him so hard against her. It was just a noise, it was just his ear. But it was impossible to keep her from knowing what she did to him.
“I clearly have a type,” she said. “And my type sucks.”
“Then it’s not a date if I do this.” Reed took the hand that had been holding hers and used it to brush her hair over her shoulder.
She shook her head ever so slightly. “No.”
“Or if I do this.”
He used his finger to raise her chin. Her eyes looked up at him, full and liquid in the whispering light. Again, that small flick of her head: no.
“And it’s definitely not a date if I do this.”
He kissed her.
He knew it was a bad idea as he was doing it. He didn’t have room in his life for a woman. An agent with his kind of job and his kind of hours had to be alone. He’d learned that the hard way, and he wasn’t going to put another woman through that again.
But then she kissed him back, her mouth soft and warm and inviting him in.
And instead of pulling away like he should have, blaming the wine, stammering his excuses, his hands were in her hair, sliding down her back, and he knew he was going to devour her whole.

Falling head-first into the wrong woman’s bed was not how Reed Bishop’s night was supposed to go. Now a gorgeous, half-naked ballet dancer was threatening his manhood…with a book. He can’t blame her.
It wasn’t how it seemed—he was just doing his job, tracking down his lead informant, who, unfortunately, took off, leaving him to figure out what to do with her friend. Staying in her apartment was no longer safe.
And that’s how he got himself into this mess.
Now she’s sleeping in his bed while he tosses and turns on the couch.
There are pink tights in his bathroom.
Pointe shoes next to his boots.
He swears he won’t touch her like that…but he can’t ignore his fantasies.
As a tattooed, muscled DEA Agent, Reed’s seen some things. Drug dealers, murderers…He can’t let Talia get close. Even though she’s made it clear they’re both fighting the same hunger. And he definitely can’t use his handcuffs on her…no matter how much she begs.
