I’m so excited to announce that I am participating in a blog tour with a few of my fellow Wild Rose Press authors. This week I will be hosting rose Linda Kage, talented author of young adult romance and adult contemporary romance. Here’s a teaser to get us started…
IT’S NOT EVERY DAY YOU LEARN YOU HAVE A NINE-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER
Boston Kincaid’s life is forever changed when he reads the note from Cassidy Trenton, who’s looking for her daddy. Vividly remembering the girl’s mother, Boston is compelled to learn the truth about Cassidy’s paternity.
Single working mother Ellie Trenton is completely bowled over to find her old college flame, whom she hasn’t seen in ten years, loitering on her front porch when she comes home from work one day.
At the sight of each other, Boston and Ellie’s decade apart melts away, and that old chemistry between them flares back to life. But trust doesn’t come easily, and old wounds never healed properly.
Can Boston and Ellie learn to forgive and forget so they can experience the love they never shared, or will child custody battles keep them apart forever?

Here’s a glimpse to further entice…
Dear Mr. Montgomery Kincaid,
My name is Cassidy Trenton. I am nine years and ten months old. I am looking for my dad. My mom is Ellie Trenton. She will not tell me his name, but she met him in college. She said he was the son of an astronaut and named after a state capital. I read about you in the magazine. You married the famous model Shannon March. They said you went to the same college my mom went to. They said your dad was a real-life astronaut. You are named after the capital of Alabama. Are you my dad? Please come meet me.
Frozen with horror, Boston could only gape. The blood congealed in his veins.
Yes, he’d done it now. He’d thought Ellie’s name, and look what atrocity had emerged.
Dear God. She’d even dubbed the baby Cassie—the very name he’d chosen.
His stomach churned.
This was wrong. All wrong. It wasn’t possible. That baby was dead.
He clearly remembered Ellie saying, “There is no baby. The baby’s gone.”
“Umm…guys?” came Olivia’s voice from beside him. A moment later, Monty tore the letter from his grasp.
Boston lifted his face.
His brother’s jaw sagged. “Holy Shit, Boston,” he said, glancing down at the child’s scrawl. “This letter was meant for you.”
Boston shook his head briefly to deny it. “No,” he rasped. “It can’t be. Ellie…she told me she had a miscarriage.”
–REVIEWS:Rites of Romance (Rating: 4.5) “I really enjoyed this book. The story is a contemporary romance and the story line very well written. The reader will laugh and cry with the characters and root for them to become a couple again. Boston is a great male lead. He is smart, sexy, fun, but real. He has his flaws, he has made mistakes and he learns and changes throughout the book. Ellie is strong willed and will fight to the death for what she believes is right for her child. She is misguided at times, but she also grows throughout the story. Both characters learn more about themselves and what they lost all those years ago. Trying to overcome a hurtful past full of misunderstandings and lies makes the journey back to one another difficult and at times frustrating even for the reader.”
Single Titles (5 Stars) “Linda Kage has become one of my favorite authors, I love that her stories or so real that you feel like you are peeking into someone’s life while reading. Delinquent Daddy captures you from the first page and takes you on a wonderful ride. I loved how there were flashbacks to the days Ellie and Boston were dating and you could see the ups and downs of the relationship while they were in College.”
Long and Short of It (4 Stars) “Ms. Kage keeps Delinquent Daddy moving at a fast pace with a careful mix of flashbacks of Boston and Ellie’s college romance and present day events. Delinquent Daddy is a charming family oriented novel that you do not want to miss.”
Happily Ever After Reviews (4 Tea Cups) “Linda Kage has done a remarkable job in this story from the beginning to the end. I loved that Cassidy desperately wants her daddy and will do anything she can to see it possible. Now Ellie and Boston are two people who anybody can see clearly that they still love each other. Linda did a beautiful job in showing that two people can still love each other after all the heartache and pain. Definitely a great book to read and can’t wait for more of Linda’s work.”
Come on back tomorrow and read a little about Lind’s young adult romance The Stillburrow Crush.
Ta for now…
