Happy Monday, sweeties. Today I have the lovely Nana Prah on my blog sharing the top ten facts about her latest book, Love Undercover. Make her feel welcome. There's also a Gift Card giveaway for one lucky person.
Over to you, Nana...
One thing that many people don’t know is that Love Undercover is a romance based on an experience I had. Not the romance part, but the jail aspect. Without further delay I’d like to present 10 things that happen in Love Undercover that actually happened to me.
1. My first cellmate was awesome. We would laugh all the freaking time. We had similar personalities and loved to have fun. She was a bisexual, but didn’t fancy me. I’m a heterosexual, but I was like why not? Still laughing about that.
2. I butchered my eyebrows by attempting to shape them with thread. It was hilarious- even to me
3. I was strip searched after having a visit (It was not fun in the least)
4. There were some hot guards in that prison. But unfortunately I had no romantic liaisons with any of them (damn).
5. Many of the detainees stories in the book are true. I’ve dramatized them just a tad.
6. Most of what happened to one of the characters in the novel is what I went through, only I’ve never had a boob job (darn it).
7. Sarita and I had the same second cellmate, only there was no fight in real life. The devil part is true, though- very scary.
8. The library was awesome. No covert operations for me, even though it does happen in the system.
9. We baked a cake. To this day I still find it weird, but it’s true.
10. To the best of my knowledge there was no blind spot at the prison I was detained at. That came from my imagination so I could get some intimate scenes in there for Sarita and Matt.
So there you have it. If you have any questions on what else is true in Love Undercover once you read it, just contact me and I’ll let you know.
The last thing she expects is to fall in love with a prison guard…
Hotshot Secret Service Agent, Sarita Cerez is thrown into a medium security prison—for work. Her job is to protect the daughter of the president of South Korea. She never envisioned making friends with illegal immigrants or falling head over heels for one of the guards. Now the clandestine activity, which is integral to protecting her charge, may destroy her only chance at love.
He's never fraternized with the inmates—until he met her…
Matthew Carter always plays by the rules, which includes maintaining a strictly professional relationship with the inmates in his charge. But when Sarita saunters onto the unit, all bets are off. Her status as a deportee with a permanent ticket to Columbia means they can never be together, but try as he might, this doesn’t stop him from risking his career for her.
He's a man who values honesty above all else, and she lies for a living. Can two people from such different worlds find any common ground?
As inappropriate as the situation had turned out to be, Sarita was his. At least until she returned to Columbia in what? A few days? A week? No matter when, she would go. “No wife or girlfriend to hang out with.”
Her chest deflated with her released breath. He wished he could have taken her air into himself. I’m screwed. “What about you? Are you married or have a boyfriend waiting to break you out of here at the first opportunity?”
Her eyes blazed into his. “Single as single can be.”
The admission sparked something deep within him. He had to touch her. Nothing else mattered except having his fingers glide over her flawless mocha skin. The all-encompassing urge pushed him to stand.
With a controlled effort he strode to the area across from the television and leaned against the wall.
On every unit, one spot existed where neither the cameras nor inmates could see. Management knew about it, but the cost of adding a third camera would be too expensive for the facility to contemplate so they left it. At least that’s the story Matt had been told.
He’d never used the spot, but as he waited for her to join him, he couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.
He motioned her to him with a crook of his index finger. “Come here.”
