Sleeping with Dogs and Other Lovers, written by Julia Dumont, features an unlikely heroine, Cynthia Amas, who has her hands full. In the middle of launching a boutique match-making service--Second Acts--amid the sun, surf, and celebrities of Southern California, her own romantic life gets a whole lot more complicated. . .and steamy. Before long, Cynthia's personal, professional, and amorous lives begin crashing hilariously into one another. Join Cynthia as she begins her own "Second Act" and find out who accidentally slips into bed with whom, who has a penchant for low-cut lederhosen, and who winds up naked on a beautiful beach in Malibu!
The initial response to this first novel has been uniformly positive. According to Phyllis Grann, former CEO and Publisher of the Putnam Publishing Group, "Sleeping with Dogs and Other Lovers is a fun read and I have every expectation that BroadLit will have a very successful business bringing all types of romance stories to one of the largest markets in publishing today--women readers of romance."
Kirkus Reviews, one of the toughest reviewers in book publishing, agrees that this is an entertaining read filled with titillating sex scenes, plenty of plots twists and fun entertainment: "The misunderstandings and mischief will keep readers turning pages, and the light-weight content makes for easy enjoyment ... erotic adventure for readers more interested in an entertaining read than deep thought." - Kirkus Reviews
The second novel in the series, Star Struck Romance and Other Hollywood Tails, will be published in the summer of 2012.
