Impromptu Giveaway - A Black Tie Affair by Sherrill Bodine

A BLACK TIE AFFAIR, (Forever; $6.99; January 1, 2010) a witty and sexy new contemporary romance by Sherrill Bodine. This heart-tugging follow-up to Talk of the Town will appeal to fans of Susan Mallery, Barbara Bretton, and Susan Wiggs.

Fashion curator Athena Smith will do anything to get her hands on the Clayworth family’s couture collection for her exhibit.  So she’s thrilled when she’s called in to authenticate the gowns…until she falls ill while examining them and wakes up face-to-face with notorious Chicago bachelor Drew Clayworth.


Drew doesn’t trust Athena one bit.  He still believes she betrayed him years ago.  So when his family’s gowns go missing and Athena offers her help in exchange for the dresses, he reluctantly accepts.  But they’re both taken off guard by the barely restrained passion that’s still between them…and the memories that are both bitter and sweet.  As they work together to find the dresses, can they resist the sparks between them?


Sherrill Bodine has been writing stories since junior high, when she won a pair of silver skates in a state-wide essay contest.  She has published 15 award-winning novels under two pseudoynyms (Lynn Leslie and Leslie Lynn).  Now she’s decided to be herself and write about the people, parties, and high-life in the city she knows best:  Chicago.  She lives in the Windy City with her husband, four children, Newfoundland and pug dogs.

    Hey I just visited Sherrill Bodine’s website. I’ve never read anything by her but her work sounds wonderful, I think she has found a new fan in me. What really interested me about Sherri and what drew me to read about her books was the way she speaks about her children and grandchildren. You can feel her love for them in her words and all the fun activities she does with them, it actually reminded me a lot of my own fun grandmother and made me smile. Thank you RJ for introducing me to her work.

    Talk of The Town was listed as a red hot read in Feb 2009 issue of Cosmo.

    Exactly what Pam said and I’m definitely going to buy the book. Also the author herself, is adorable and looks to have a lot of class. I’m always challenged with my reading and my New Year’s resolution is to not only try new authors but also genres.

    I have always wanted to visit Chicago and now through this book I can.
