From New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a steamy new standalone romance in her bestselling Fusion Series






New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland’s hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn’t afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she’s forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie hasn’t been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn’t think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he’s got a handle on what life can throw at him and he’s not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can’t forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

“Have you flown before, Kat?”

“No.” I swallow hard and tighten my hands into fists.

“Okay, take a deep breath,” he says. He’s not touching me, which is good because I’d have to break his nose, and this is already stressful enough. But his voice is soothing. “Good. Take another one. Miss, can we get a bottle of water, please?”

I just keep breathing. The flight attendant returns with a little baby bottle of water, which Mac uncaps and holds out for me.

“Take a drink of this. Just a small sip.” I comply, the cold water feeling good on my throat. I feel ridiculous. This flight is full of people who are not having panic attacks.

“I’m sorry,” I whisper. “This is my biggest fear.”

“I can tell,” he says gently, and I raise my gaze to meet his. He’s a handsome guy, his short hair styled nicely, his jaw firm, eyes direct. He’s tall, with long arms and legs and a lean body. “How are you feeling?

“Better,” I reply, surprised to find it true. “The water helped. Thank you.”

“No problem. Are you going to Napa Valley on vacation?”

“Work,” I reply, shaking my head. “I’m attending a conference.”

“So you’re a wine enthusiast then?”

“You could say that,” I reply with a smile. “I own a wine bar in Portland.”

His eyes narrow for just a moment. “Really? Which one?”

“The one inside Seduction.”
“I’ve heard great things about that place.”

I smile widely now, intensely proud of the restaurant that my four friends and I have built from the ground up. Seduction is our baby, our pride and joy.

“That’s nice to hear,” I reply. “You’ve never been?”

“Not yet, but I’ll make a point to go the next time I’m in the area.”

So he doesn’t live in Portland.

Bummer. Mac is one guy I wouldn’t mind running into again.


Tracey’s Review

What happens in Napa, stays in Napa…

Famous last words, right? Katrina Meyers, bartender extraordinaire and part-owner of Seduction, one of Portland’s hottest up-and-coming restaurants, hates flying. Loathes and is scared to death would be a more accurate description, but you get the picture. So, the travel gods must have been smiling on her when they placed her right next to Mac MacKenzie on that flight to Napa. Who would have believed that both Kat and Mac would both be headed to the same wine conference? Or that things would get so H.O.T. (did you hear the sizzle, guys?) between them that they couldn’t stay away from each other? And, as much as Kat and Mac agree to keep their time together a lovely respite from their real lives, well, you know how fickle Fate can be…

Kristen Proby’s FUSION series has quickly become one of my favorites. This group of ladies are strong, sassy, and in charge of their lives. Kat is absolutely wonderful, the kind of take-no-prisoners woman that I want to be when I grow up. Except for that pesky fear of flying thing, she’s living life on her terms, happily part of the FUSION family, and loving every minute of it. As far as Kat is concerned, her “sexcation” with Mac was a fun time, but she’s tucked that memory away, and is moving on with her life in Portland.

Mac doesn’t do relationships. Sure, he enjoys women, he just isn’t looking for the happily ever after. But, here’s the thing: Kat rocked Mac’s world, and he can’t get her out of his mind. So, when he has the chance to see her again, he’s not wasting any time. And, here’s another thing: love always happens when you least expect it, and it isn’t long before he realizes that Kat means more to him than he’d thought possible.

I love romances with something more mixed in, and Kristen has done a nice job of adding some intrigue and some very real-life issues to the storyline of BLUSH FOR ME. This, along with characters that I love more each time I see them, a funky restaurant that I’d love to visit, and plenty of heartfelt, steamy, passion made this an easy 4.5-star read for me. And, that lead-in, though! Kristen’s laid a trail of breadcrumbs that just scream, But, wait, there’s more!. I sense some serious sparks on the horizon between Riley and a certain t.v. exec in THE BEAUTY OF US, and I cannot wait to see what goes down. So don’t wait, guys, grab BLUSH FOR ME, and, if you haven’t read them, the first two books in this delicious series, because things are getting hot in Portland.

  1. Congrats on the new book and good luck on the book tour! I love fruity, girly drinks like mango daiquiri’s, strawberry margaritas, and cosmos. As for wine, I prefer whites and LOVE the Chateau St. Michelle winery as it is delicious and close by. Their Riesling is amazing!! Thanks!!
