Good morning everyone!  Happy Saturday.  Please help me welcome author Kathleen Grieve to ATPT today.  She’s here to talk to us about “Dating Pitfalls” and I’m also promoting her book Dating 911 as part of the CBLS tour.  There is a giveaway of one ebook copy of Dating 911 so be sure to stick around and enter. Now here is Kathleen!
morning! In my current release, my heroine Roxanne Carter and her best
friend Ambra Jenkins is tired of stale, lifeless dates. They want to
have fun, innovative dates with engaging men. In Dating 911, Roxanne
gathers data for her great Dating Manifesto and while I don’t go into
details of what she concluded in the book, today, I’d like to share with
you a bit of what my dynamic duo found.
Interestingly enough, it
is a really good idea when you start to date someone, that you learn
their dating history. A good nurse always knows how to get a health
history, so this is just taking things a bit more personal. This
includes their past relationships and how those ended, criminal
background, and if there is any mental health problems.
information provides key insights as to whether or not they handled
breakups well, if they are safe to be around, and if they could be a
potential stalker.
Seems easy enough. Right? I have a scene
in Dating 911 where Roxanne is at a speed dating hot spot. She came
prepared with a list of questions and wasn’t shy about pulling her
little notepad out and scribbling some notes! She was on a serious
mission! LOL. That chapter was one of my favorites to write in this
book. 🙂
Have you experienced any dating pitfalls? How did you
get out of the jam you suddenly found yourself in? I’d love to hear
your comments! A free digital copy of my current release, Dating 911,
the first book in my Dating Series is available to one lucky commenter!
Thank you so much for having me here today!


Emergency room nurse, Roxanne Carter is a loser-magnet wishing she
could enjoy her single life. Commiserating with girlfriends over
butterscotch martinis creates the idea of The Dating Manifesto–a not so
scientific research project which promises to point the way to dating
success. While gathering data to find the most suitable single men
available, she wades through a series of unsavory, stale dates, which
literally places her back at ground zero. Just when she is ready to give
up, sin personified in the form of sexy firefighter Jett Avery, arrives
tainting all of her previous data.
A traumatic warehouse fire,
in which firefighter Jett Avery’s closest friend dies, has him suffering
from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Attempting to stave off the worst
of his depression, he decides to use his brand of therapy…Sex. The
remedy has lost luster until he encounters ER nurse Roxanne Carter.
pursuit of Roxanne by Jett’s twin brother, Doctor Cruz Avery,
complicates her research and interferes with Jett’s therapy. Does
Roxanne choose the brother who by analysis is the perfect match? Or the
broken, dark and irresistible one?
