Spotlight and Giveaway - Love in Unknown Series by Taylor M. Lunsford



My first three novels will be released through Naked Reader Press in 2013, along with a short story, as part of the Love In Unknown series. I’m excited to introduce readers to the small (fictional) town in Texas called Unknown. Located in the Texas Hill Country, Unknown was founded by the Maddox Family in the 1800s. 

My Love In Unknown series starts off with the story of sexy mayor Caine Maddox and the new town doctor – and Caine’s college sweetheart- Melody Carr. Sparks fly between these two as Caine fights to convince Mel he’s no longer the selfish playboy he was in college while Mel struggles to convince the people of her hometown that she’s there to stay. 

Next up, we meet Mel's yummy brother Micah, the town baker and newcomer Cady Saunders, a runaway bride who steals Micah's heart. 

Finally, we get to know Caine's brother Gage, the big bad police chief of Unknown who finds himself falling for fashion designer Tessa Styles and the cute little baggage she brings along with her. 


NEED YOU NOW excerpt: 
By the time Caine lifted him out of the truck in front of the hospital, Teddy's face was pasty white and drenched with sweat. Even though Caine knew from experience the poor kid had to be in a lot of pain, he was impressed at how stoic Teddy remained. No crying, no moaning. The only sound he made came when he got out of the truck.  
Leading the boy into the Emergency entrance, Caine looked around for a doctor. The county hospital was small. Doctors from the four small towns in the area took turns staffing the emergency room while three full-time doctors took care of the long-term patients. Eyes lighting on a white coat, Caine started to usher Teddy forward.  
"Excuse me? My friend here had a bit of an accident and I—" Caine stopped in his tracks as the doctor turned around. He hadn't registered the long, chestnut-colored ponytail before, and the coat concealed the body he used to know better than his own. Big hazel eyes blinked up at him, looking just as surprised as he felt. Melody Carr.  
This was not how he’d pictured their reunion.

Author Interview:

1)  Tell us a little bit about yourself?
There’s not a lot to tell. I’m a single twenty-something-year-old romance writer. I majored in English and minored in Feminist Studies. I’m second generation Texan on both sides of my family and proud of it.

2) When did you decide to become a writer?
You make it sound like it’s a conscious choice. I started writing at 13 and never really stopped.

3) What types of books do you read?  Favorite books? Favorite authors?
I read romance pretty exclusively. I love Nora Roberts, Eloisa James, Meg Cabot, Tiffany Reisz, Roni Loren….the list goes on and on. Jane Austen is at the top of my list of course and I say Persuasion is my favorite book if forced to choose.

4) What are you currently working on?  What book should we be looking forward to?
I’m finishing up edits on the last book in the Love in Unknown Series, Just A Kiss. It’s my favorite of the series. The hero, Gage, is too delicious, for words and I lust after my heroines wardrobe (she’s a fashion designer).

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
