Blog Tour: Lean On Me by HelenKay Dimon (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Today we have HelenKay Dimon here with us to talk about her new book Lean On Me! Make sure you check out the giveaway at the bottom of this post! :)

Lean On Me
Holloway #2

Cassidy Clarke once climbed the world’s highest mountains, but after an unexpected illness ends her career she’s back in her hometown, broke and hoping for a little luck. But the townsfolk aren’t exactly putting out a welcome mat for the woman who once snubbed them in the media, despite her apologies now.

Mitch Anders knows someone has set up camp on the grounds of his plant nursery, and he’s surprised to find his sexy high school crush ducking questions about where she’s staying. Though he’s sworn to stop cleaning up other people’s messes, Mitch offers Cassidy a job and a place to stay—his place. Bedsharing optional, but definitely welcome.

Out of options and too attracted to Mitch to keep things platonic, Cassidy says yes to his offer. She wants to get back on her feet financially and start a new career. She never expects to suffer a different kind of fall, one that has her believing Mitch just might bring her something bigger and better than luck.

Thank you for having me here today to talk about my newest release, LEAN ON ME.

I love talking about this book because it contains one of my favorite things – guy bonding. I love reading connected books about family members, but I'm really talking about the families we all make from the people we gather around us as we go through life.  It's what I think of as the FRIENDS phenomenon.  I'm, of course, referring to the television show.  Two of the gang were siblings, but the rest were just as close. They built this sort of tribe. They fought and argued but were deadly loyal to each other. It's a compelling concept and something I love to see in books.  

Some of the characters in this series are blood related but many aren't. To me, there isn't much of a difference in the strength of the bond between these folks because of biology. Mitch Anders, the hero of this book, is best friends with and a business partner of Austin Thomas. Austin also happens to be married to Mitch's sister (their book is IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU). The third partner is Spence Thomas, Austin's older brother (his book comes out in December, WE'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS).  The friends and partners have taken in a guy they trust both in business and on a personal level.  His name is Travis…and you can look for his book in 2013.

Believe it or not, I never intended to develop a series when I wrote the first book.  It just happened.  I blame FRIENDS.

Where you can find her:

HelenKay Dimon is an award-winning author of more than a dozen novels and novellas. Her first single title, Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy, was excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine in August '07 and spotlighted at E! Online. She made Cosmopolitan a second time in December 2009 with her novella "It's Hotter At Christmas" from the Kissing Santa Claus anthology. Her books also have been published by Doubleday Book Club and Rhapsody Book Club and translated into several languages.
HelenKay's road to publication took a few turns. She's not one of those authors who burst out of the womb with a notepad in one hand and a pen in the other. She didn’t know she wanted to write until much later in life. She tried international travel and journalism and enjoyed careers in politics and law first. After graduating from Syracuse University with a double major in newspaper journalism and political science, she landed in Washington, D.C. A few years as a legislative assistant to a member of the House of Representatives convinced her law school might be a good idea. Three years at Wake Forest University and one bar exam later and HelenKay moved back to the D.C. metro area as a lawyer. General civil litigation gave way to a specialty in family law and an eventual partnership in a highly respected boutique firm.
After twelve years as a divorce lawyer specializing in unhappy endings, HelenKay now writes romance for a living. The sudden career change resulted from her husband getting one of those "can't turn it down" job offers. With only a few months' notice, his work took the family from Maryland to their current home in California. So, instead of days filled with court, clients and a great deal of whining and complaining, HelenKay now writes for a living. She thinks of herself as a "recovering lawyer" and is grateful every day for the ability to write full time.
