New Release Anticipation by Stacy Hoff

I’m so excited! MAD FOR YOU IN MADRID (Building Love #3) will finally be released Wednesday, October 10, 2018! MAD FOR YOU IN MADRID completes the Building Love series. Each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone novel (although they do have recurring characters). All books contain a happily ever after (“HEA”), a steamy romance, and drama between family members. Each is set in a world-class location. BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS (Building Love #1) takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, and HOTTER THAN THE CARIBBEAN (Building Love #2) takes place on Condado Beach, Puerto Rico.

Writing this series gave me some of the most fun I’ve had as an author. I love writing about exotic locales. Whipping up drama. And hey, writing “steamy” scenes is fun, too! As excited as I am to release the final book in the Building Love series, I am finding it a bit hard to let my characters, and connective story line, go.

In fact, each time I complete a novel it’s hard for me to say “good-bye.” I think that’s why I’m creating more and more series. My first series is the Desire series, which is comprised of two books. I wrote DESIRE IN THE EVERGLADES not planning on writing a second. When I hard time let the characters from the first book go, I sat down to write the sequel, DESIRE IN THE ARCTIC. Having that story continue lifted my creative spirits. Writing the Building Love series has done the same for me. I am grateful for the continued opportunity.

I’m biting my nails waiting for MAD FOR YOU IN MADRID (Building Love #3)’s release day. I’ll admit that sales impacts my creative spirit, too. I doubt I’m the only author who wants to know that people are actually enjoying the book I wrote.

In the interim, I’ll breathe deeply and work on promo. Here is the book blurb for MAD FOR YOU IN MADRID (Building Love #3) and the rest of Building Love series, so you know a little bit about the release I’m waiting for!

A surprise business trip to Spain leads to something even more unexpected—a forbidden romance with the client.

Book blurb for MAD FOR YOU IN MADRID (Building Love #3)

Lori Cayne is in a tricky situation. Her public relations job has sent her to Spain for a project that is way over her head. Her task is to convince American tourists to stay at a Madrid hotel. Unfortunately, Lori knows little about public relations and even less about the hotel industry. Dealing with the client, however, will be the real challenge. Hotel magnate Daniel Vega is rich, uber-sexy, and the one night stand that wasn’t. That’s because Lori had inadvertently stood him up before things got a chance to really heat up. Now Daniel wants nothing to do with her, personally or professionally.

Daniel Vega is none-to-pleased to learn that Lori will be handling his new hotel’s publicity campaign. Her flaky ways will be hell on his business, and on him. Yet shutting her out is hard to do when the woman is full of surprises and an even fuller heart. Her good nature makes her willing to do anything for anybody. When Daniel’s brother, Elias, asks Lori to be his fake-fiancé at an important event, Daniel is not surprised when Lori agrees. What he is surprised by is the pang of jealousy. Maybe Lori isn’t the only one with personal issues to work out. After all, if Daniel is truly the success he thinks he is, how can off-beat, business greenhorn Lori Cayne emotionally bring him to his knees?

When news of the fake engagement creates a scandal, both Lori’s company and Daniel’s world-wide enterprise may be damaged beyond repair. The damage done to their hearts, however, may be a whole lot worse.

Hook line for HOTTER THAN THE CARIBBEAN (Building Love #2)

In the Caribbean, the secrets, sex, and scandals are hotter.

Book blurb for HOTTER THAN THE CARIBBEAN (Building Love #2)

Luis Serrano, the unwanted love child of a hotel construction magnate, is determined to reach his father’s level of success. When Luis finds himself pitted against his half-brother for control over their ailing father’s company, sibling rivalry comes to a head. The stakes are high—the brother that best completes their portion of the Caribbean construction project will gain control over the entire company. To win, Luis hires an interior design firm. But the firm will have to perform difficult work under serious time constraints.

Melanie Merritt is used to sibling rivalry. She’s always been second best to her older sister, the “golden child” of their parent’s interior design firm. Melanie’s desire is to be an artist. She works for her family to appease them. Her newest task is to implement a complex project for Luis Serrano under an impossibly short deadline. If she fails, her family’s company may go bankrupt. But Melanie can’t keep her too-creative ideas away from her family, and the client.

Completing work on time won’t be easy. Especially when dual sibling rivalries threaten to destroy the project—and a passion hotter than the Caribbean.


Hook line for BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS (Building Love #1)

In Las Vegas, there’s no bigger gamble than love.

Book blurb for BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS (Building Love #1)

Catherine “Cat” Warner has problems. The profits from her inns are down. The pressure from her parents is up. Her love life is non-existent. But Cat did manage to get the attention of tough, powerful, gorgeous hotel magnate Ty Orland. Unfortunately, his interest in her is for all the wrong reasons. Instead of wanting Cat, this debonair CEO only wants her land—a parcel he desperately needs for his next big development deal. Too bad, it’s notfor sale. A people pleaser by nature, Cat knows to stand strong. If she caves in to the demands of this sexy, alluring man, it will be her own neck on the line.

Ty Orland has a lot of things going for him. Success. Power. Respect. Unfortunately, he’s also got an old chip on his shoulder and a new financial nightmare. His development deal is going down in flames—and fast. His only way out is if Cat sells him her strategically located parcel. But romancing the land from her is not easy when love gets in the way. The woman is as beautiful as she is beguiling. And Ty no longer knows which prize is more valuable.
