Popping those cherries...

Hello to you all!

Today I am delighted to welcome the very lovely Aurelia B Rowl here on my poor neglected blog (yes, I'm still making excuses for my sporadic postings!). I first 'met' Aurelia a few years back via a facebook support group set up for the Mills & Boon New Voices competition. That support group is still going strong and, I'm pleased to say, Aurelia is going even stronger! Her debut release, Popping the Cherry, has been released through the Harlequin digital first line Carina Press, and is already garnering a whole host of rave reviews. When I saw she was doing a blog tour (keep reading - she has prizes!) I couldn't wait to be involved but, as regular readers here will know, asking conventional questions to authors just isn't my thing...

Over to you Aurelia!
Hi Michelle, and thank you for inviting me onto your blog today to talk about my latest release, Popping the Cherry. I must admit, when Michelle asked me to come up with some 'tunes' suitable for those cherry-popping moments I actually laughed out loud. Naturally, I turned to YouTube, but for once it let me down so I went to my backup plan...spotify. Of course, once I got started I got a little bit carried away and ended up choosing songs from across the decades that could well have got the whole lurrrrrve thing going on. So, without further ado, I present my "Let's Get It On..." playlist. Let me know what you think, and maybe make some suggestions of your own? I've also got two giveaways on the go as part of my blog tour, with some fabulous prizes up for grabs, so make sure you scroll down to enter.

Aurelia B. Rowl lives on the edge of the Peak District with her very understanding husband, their two fantastic children, and their mad rescue mutt who doesn’t mind being used as a sounding post and source of inspiration. She regularly wows them all with her curious, hastily thrown together meals when she gets too caught up with her latest writing project... or five!... and she has developed the fine art of ignoring the housework. Aurelia writes Young Adult/New Adult crossover fiction and contemporary romance. She is currently busy writing the standalone companion novels to both Popping the Cherry and Christmas is Cancelled. To find out more about Aurelia, you can visit her website: or you can find her hanging out online, far too often, at the following:
You only get one first time . . .
From driving tests to relationships, Valentina Bell thinks she’s a failure, with a big fat capital F. At this rate, she’s certain she’ll be a virgin for ever. So Lena’s friends plan Operation: Popping the Cherry to help her find the perfect man first time.
Yet somehow disastrous dates with bad-boy musicians and fabulous evenings with secretly in-the-closet guys aren’t quite working out how Lena planned.
Soon Lena’s avoiding Operation: Popping the Cherry to spend time with comforting, aloof Jake, her best friend’s older brother, who doesn’t make her feel self-conscious about still clinging to her V card. But could Jake show Lena that sometimes what you’re looking for most is right by your side?
A Forever for the twenty-first century
