Okay, Lori, if your book was a sundae, what toppings would it have?

Caramel. Smooth and rich.

Yummy!  Hmmm… if you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island and could only take a few things, what would they be?

My husband, my glasses, a journal, and my dogs

Aw, so nice and practical!  OK, complete this phrase.  Stay calm and:


What scene in the book was the hardest for you to write?  Easiest?  Why?

The love scenes are always the hardest (hehe, made a pun) to write. 

The easiest scene in ALL OUT OF LOVE was when the hero is hoodwinked into buying tumbleweed seeds because he was too busy ogling the heroine to notice. It was such fun to write.

That sounds like so much fun!  Can’t wait to read it.  Speaking of reading, what is the last great book you’ve read?

Gone Girl

Awesome!  So tell us, Lori, what is your guilty pleasure?

The National Enquirer. Yes, I’m shallow like that.
Hey, nobody’s judging you!  Now, can you tell us more about the book?

The newest Cupid, Texas romance . . . Football star Pierce Hollister has fame, fortune, and beautiful women who’ll do anything for him . . . whether he asks them to or not. But when it all comes crashing down, Pierce finds himself back home, running the ranch in Cupid, Texas, wondering how it all went wrong.

But one thing is right: Lace Bettingfield. The former plain-Jane has turned into a luscious knockout—trouble is,she won’t even give him the time of day no matter how many passes he makes.

Being in love with your older brother’s best friend is awkward enough, and Pierce was the cause of Lace’s most embarrassing high school moment ever when her secret letter to him declaring her love landed right on the front page of the school newspaper! Pierce is still as stubborn, sexy, and arrogant as ever . . . but Lace is about to see that things aren’t always as they seem . . . especially when it comes to love.

Available for pre-order at Amazon:


Thanks, Lori!  It’s been great having you here.  OK, it’s your turn . . . in All out of Love, Lace is totally humiliated before she can find true love with Pierce.  Anyone willing to share their good, bad or ugly high school stories?  Ten lucky commenters will win their very own copy.  Check back next week to see if you’ve won!  Good luck!

  1. When i was a Senior I really liked this boy total sweetheart. Well during our Up all Night party i was hypnatized into kissing him in front of my whole class! I was shocked when I came out of it.

  2. I started my period in class once and had a stain I didn’t know about until a friend pulled me into the restroom. I thought I’d die of embarrassment.

  3. The best part of high school was Connie, Julie and Melody. None of us ended up with a high school sweetheart husband, but we have each other as lifelong friends. I wouldn’t trade them for sixteen hot men knocking at my door.

  4. I was such a tomboy in high school I never dated. I didn’t even go to my prom since I just didn’t care, and I didn’t want to wear a dress. 🙂 So fortunately (or unfortunately, however you want to look at it) I don’t have any high school ‘love’ stories, of course after I went away to college I managed to make a fool out of myself on more than one occasion in that department, but in my defense alcohol was usually involved.

  5. Lori, I adore your books. When I find love it would be nice to find it in a way that your characters do – the journey is never boring and it’s fun to boot. I remember when I was in high school I had the biggest crush on a senior. I think I pretty much stalked him lol though I thought I was being sneaky. Looking back I think it was pretty obvious and I cringe at all the ways I would go out just to be in his vicinity. The best of friends were always around for the ride though!

  6. I remember being in tenth grade and being madly in love with a senior boy. I would wait outside of his classes and follow him through school just to see him. We because friend but that was about it. Have no clue where he is now.

  7. I did not date much in high school…my grandma actually set me up on a blind prom date! My date to the prom I meant on that night and he was my grandma’s friend’s son. WE had talked on the phone before prom but had not met. Luckily my grandma had good taste, I was not disappointed when he picked me up!

  8. Can’t wait for this book. After reading the first chapter at the end of the last book, it really gets to you right at the beginning.

    High school wasn’t that memorable. Just a lot of classmates that hung out together.

  9. Truthfully, I hated high school! It was all so centered on clicks and being mean to the less popular girls! My one shining moment during the 4 year ordeal was cheerleading! Game time and everyone was on the same side, no clicks, no mean girls – only team spirit and school pride and belting out ” Be True To Your School”!!! We made the Beach Boys proud!

  10. When I was in high school, I had this huge crush on a boy in one of my art classes. We started talking, got to know each other and began to date. One day when we were getting ready to part ways for our own bus, he kissed me. My first kiss in front of the entire school! I loved it! I was shocked but it turned into our normal routine after that 🙂

  11. I never dated guys from school, always someone older. of course that got me into lots of trouble…but it didn’t happen in front of classmates! I can remember school day embarrassing moments from elementary, junior high and college. but somehow I can’t remember any from high school — selective memory or too much pot smoking?

  12. I was very involved with High School politics. wad class president and President of the student council. I also loved to be involved drama club and was a Valedictorian of my graduating class. But most of the gang I hung around with I never see or here from..

  13. Most of high school for me was spent working full time, studying and band practice! I was a band need throughout high school. I went to prom with a friend and a guy friend as a group. I wish I would have the courage back then to just ask a guy. If he said no he said no. I was not very out going. Love yours and Loris books. Love me some cowboys 🙂 I just finished Gone Girl also.

  14. This is humiliating and I’m not at all sure why I’m telling you all this but I had a horrible stomach ache (later I would discover I was sensitive to whatever was in the cafeteria’s mashed potatoes.) and I was in Gym class with my then on-again-off-again, friends-with-benefits unnecessarily complicated sort-of-boyfriend. It just so happened to be the State Tests were this day and we all HAD to line up and do as many sit-ups in a minute as we could.
    Dear lord. I couldn’t help it.
    I started but my stomach hurt so bad that it was uncontrollable with every sit up that occurred.
    I said to my friend who was standing on my feet. “I can’t do this.”
    She said to me, “Yes you can.”
    “But I’m-”
    “I know! Just keep going.”
    So I did. With every sit-up I did, gas would pass. It was like I was a human bagpipe. It was horrible.
    The guy holding the kid’s feet beside me looks at my friend in horror. “Is she …?”
    My friend turns to him and says, “Shut up. Yes.”
    All the while down the line there stands the jerk I was kinda seeing with the stop watch. I don’t think he could ever look me in the eye again.
    Longest – roughest minute of my life I tell you.
    Needless to say he and I officially broke up (even though we weren’t necessarily officially dating) a few short weeks later.
