Oh My Hot Romero

This came straight from Elizabeth's blog and I thought I would share.  Just so you know Romero is one of my favorites.  He reminds me so much of my husband with that possessive temper but very loveable.  Izzy is his number one priority and would die for her, so call me crazy but any man that loves like this is a man of my dreams.  So I have mine already but it doesn't hurt to read about


Romero celebration this week! Interview, GIVEAWAY's and bonus scene!!!

In celebration of reaching over 150k + sales of Romero I'm doing a very temporary price cut this week only! So if you haven't already read his story grab it now for only $.99 cents!!

But there's MORE!! Tune in this Tuesday as Romero makes brave Judy from Judy's Jumbles  blush as she asks the tough questions about Izzy, and a sore subject for him--his temper. Yikes!
And did someone say bonus scene? 
***Spoiler Alert!***
For those who haven't read Romero you may want to wait until you have to read this. This is a BIG scene from the book only now you get to be in Romero's head as it unfolds!
Speaking of temper. For those of you who've read Romero. You remember the scene at Charles birthday party where Romero loses it? We were in Isabel's head the whole time. We know he was incensed but would you like to see what was really going through his head? Here is the beginning of the scene in his head. I'll post the bonus scene in it's entirety later this week! And I just want to add. I'd forgotten how fun it is to write Romero. =)

Watch how quickly he goes from 

Disclaimer: These are two completely different models. Neither of which represent or endorse  Romero in ANY way. Just giving you a visual. ;) 

For the first few minutes of Isabel's dance with her father Romero watched solemnly. She was upset at him and though he couldn't really blame her... He stopped with that thought and pulled the front of  his shirt to his nose. Fuck. He did reek of Cici's perfume. His only consolation was that as soon as he gave her the ring and explained everything she'd understand.  Izzy had to understand Cici had nothing on her. No girl did. Lately he was beginning to think he couldn't even breathe without her. That's why he'd got her the ring. It symbolized just how serious he was about her and how much she meant to him. He wouldn't freak her out and call it an engagement ring but he did want her to know she was everything to him now.
The laughter he'd been hearing from the bar where Michael hung out with the other Navy guys erupted again. Romero glanced back slowly at them, his jaw tightly clenched. The guy had very obviously looked his way earlier and Romero had stared him down until the asshole looked away. Isabel said her sister didn't have any ulterior motives inviting Michael here tonight—the guy she'd once tried setting her up with. But Romero knew better. Pat always had ulterior motives when it came to this shit and he put nothing past her ass.
Michael wasn't at the bar anymore. Taking a swig of his beer Romero glanced around the room and noticed a photographer snapping photos of Izzy and her soon-to-be Mayor father on the dance floor. Just past them he saw Pat and Charles talking to what appeared to be a reporter. He closed his eyes for a moment the reality of just how different his and Isabel's lives were, sinking in. But he reminded himself that she'd assured him more than once now that it wasn't an issue for her.That's all that should matter. 
Alex nudged him. "I heard they called the cops on your uncles again."
That snapped Romero out of his ominous mood and he laughed. "Yeah the old hag next door who always has a hair up her ass came over and asked Manny to move his car again. She hates it when he parks in front of her house." He laughed again. "And you know Manny he had a few choice words for her. So she called the cops."
Alex laughed now with him. "Sal said she tried to press charges on Max, too."
Romero had begun to take another swig of his beer and nearly spit that out laughing again. "Yeah well, she can't stand either one of them. So in the middle of her and Manny going at it on the front porch, Max drives up. He gets out of his car and walks up to them, tells her, her ass don't look so big in them shorts and then asks her out." He had Alex laughing as hard as he did when he first heard the story from his uncles a few days prior. "She wanted him arrested for sexual harassment."
He glanced up and noticed Isabel and her dad weren't on the dance floor anymore. Still laughing he did a quick scan and then saw her standing with Michael across the room—just the two of them. Instantly his humorous mood was sucked out of him. Like a car coming to a screeching stop so did the sound in the room as his eyes met with Isabel's. Michael moving in closer to her had him putting his beer down. She turned to Michael with a sweet smile as the fucker leaned into her face with a purpose. With that Romero was on his feet pushing his chair back.
He heard Alex ask him something but the blood already thrumming loudly in his ears drowned everything out. He did however hear Valerie's louder  more anxious words as he began walking toward Isabel and Michael fists already clenched.
"Oh shit, Alex. You better go with him."
