Blog Tour - Dare To Love by Carly Phillips



In her newest sexy and emotional contemporary romance series, New York Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips introduces you to the Dare family… siblings shaped by a father’s secrets and betrayal.
Since finding out his father had another family on the side, Ian Dare swore to be the upstanding, responsible man his cheating parent had never been. But after one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor, with her feminine curves and beguiling eyes and Ian is entranced. He will do anything to possess her ... but does that include extending an olive branch to the half-brother who is a constant reminder of pain he’d rather forget?

Independent and always in control, Riley Taylor makes no apologies for choosing men carefully. Relationships have never been a priority, and she believes herself hardened to domineering men - until she meets charismatic Ian Dare. He manages to turn a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses. Their affair heats up and they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither ever imagined. But Riley’s family includes a man Ian would rather live without ...

New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips tossed away her legal briefs and a career as an attorney to become a stay at home mom. Within the year, she turned her love of reading into an obsession with writing. Over 30 published novels later, Carly writes sexy contemporary small town romances, striking a balance between entertainment, humor and the emotion her readers have come to expect and enjoy.

Carly is a New York Times bestseller, USA Today Bestseller, Publisher’s Weekly bestseller and as of 2012, a Romance Writer’s of America RITA Nominee. In 2002, Carly’s novel, The Bachelor, became Kelly Ripa’s “Reading with Ripa” pick on Live with Regis and Kelly, making it the first romance ever chosen on a nationally televised book club.
Carly received her undergraduate degree from Brandeis University and is a graduate of Boston University School of Law (J.D.). To date, Carly has over thirty novels to her credit, all available wherever books are sold.

When not writing or playing online, Carly loves to read, occasionally to knit, and to spend time with her family. She lives in Purchase, New York with her husband, two daughters and her dogs, a soft coated wheaten terrier and a Havanese. Her dogs are prominently featured on her website and Facebook page.

As a part of the tour, we were able to ask Carly an interview question. Since the tour is running during Thanksgiving, I centered mine around that.
Stephanie: What are some of your
favorite Thanksgiving traditions?
Carly:  Thanksgiving was always my favorite holiday, but we lost my dad last
year, and I have a hard time coming up with much enthusiasm for it,
even though it’s the second Thanksgiving without him. Still, we have
my family come to my house. I think the more people the better when it
comes to a holiday celebration. Nothing says Thanksgiving to me more
than Pecan Pie and Sweet Potatoes with marshmallows over them. :)
Thanks Carly! I can totally understand how tough it is to celebrate the holidays when you've recently lost a loved one. It's tough, but being around family definitely helps!

  1. Holidays are difficult for us also as my SIL and hubby's aunt spent it every year with us for over 20 years. The both have since passed away and even after 8 years, we still have a hard time with it. This year we have my whole family here so it will be fully of family, love and fun!
