A Tuesday Treat with Christine d'Abo

Thank you for having me here today! Let me introduce myself. I’m Christine d’Abo and I’m an author and lover of erotic romance.

I love music! When I’m in the car, at the gym, and especially when I’m writing. Recently I changed my office around so that I can stand while I’m on my computer. That means I totally get to dance while I’m typing! (I’m dancing right now)

When I’m working on a book I normally set up a playlist. Not only does a consistent sound track help me ensure that the feel of the story remains so, but it allows my mind to slip into that world far easier. I thought it would be fun to share my playlist with you.

Below are the songs that helped bring them to life. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I did.

Tainted Love – Hannah Peel
Shower – Maverick
Sorry About Your Parents – Icon For Hire
Fix Me – Icon For Hire
Float On – Modest Mouse
Not On Drugs – Tove Lo
Say Something – A Great Big World
I Believe (Get Over Yourself) – Nico Vega
Hallelujah – Panic! At The Disco
Windows Down – Big Time Rush
Angle With a Shotgun – The Cab
Beggin For Thread – Banks
Heartbeat Song – Kelly Clarkson
On My Mind – Ellie Goulding
Sorry – Meg Myers
Hello – Adele

If you’d like to listen to the songs, I’ve set up a playlist on Spotified.

Rebound Remedy

The last thing Cole expects to get for the holidays is dumped.  But there he is, in the airport on his way to Banff for a romantic getaway, helplessly watching as his boyfriend’s ex declares undying love, proposes—and is accepted. With a few weeks to go until Christmas, Cole’s mood dives from jolly to jaded. But instead of sitting at home alone and feeling sorry for himself, he goes to his favorite bar, McGregor’s, for a pint and some company.

The moment Owen McGregor sets eyes on Cole, he knows there’s something wrong. So he takes it upon himself to ensure that Cole has a happy holiday: twelve outings for the twelve days before Christmas. Even if he can’t quite think up twelve activities that don’t involve getting the forlorn hunk into his bed. 

With each outing they take together, Cole realizes that the love he thought he’d shared with his ex was less than perfect. And that Owen might prove to be more than just his rebound remedy.

Rebound Remedy is one of Riptide's 2015 charity titles.
