Promo & Tour: Saison for Love by Meg Benjamin

Title: Saison for Love
Author: Meg Benjamin
Genre/Age: Contemporary Romance/Adult
Series: Brewing Love (Book Two)
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
SynopsisLiam Dempsey isn’t long for Antero. The bar where he’s been working is going downhill fast, and it’s time for him to move on. Even if moving on means moving from Colorado to Utah and leaving his sister and fledgling brewery behind. He’s not interested in forming any attachments before he leaves in a month, but after a sexy hook-up with his sister’s friend, he finds himself unsure where his future stands.

The last thing Ruth Colbert needs is something else on her plate. She has a restaurant to run, a chef to replace, and a cranky twelve-year-old to raise, but a steamy night with Liam was just what she needed. The only problem is, now she wants more, if only she could find the time for him. Just when things seem to be working out and she can see a possible future with Liam, someone from her past shows up to throw another wrench into everything.

He leaned toward her slowly, so slowly that she had to fight the urge to grab hold of his shoulders and pull him close. His lips touched hers in a faint brush, the tip of his tongue slipping in to taste her.

She did take hold of his shoulders then, holding him steady while she turned her head to let him plunge deeper. He slid one arm around her waist, pulling her closer so that her breasts pressed against his shirt. Her fingers glided into his hair, letting the smooth strands slip across them like silk.

Heat gathered in her belly, and her hips moved against him, feeling the swell of his arousal. Should she slow this down?

He seemed to be thinking about the same thing, pulling back to look at her. “Is this okay? I don’t want to push you.”

She licked her lips. “Sure. But I’m not really… This isn’t something I do much.”

He drew back a little farther. “It’s all right. We won’t do anything you don’t want to.” He gave her a tentative smile, probably trying to gauge just how skittish she was feeling.

She took a deep breath, centering herself. “But that’s just the thing,” she said slowly. “I do want to. Do it, that is.”

Maybe she shouldn’t. Maybe it wasn’t a good idea. But she really did.

Liam’s teeth flashed white as he grinned. “Good. So do I.”

Five Favorite Movie Scenes
by Meg Benjamin

This was a fun topic to deal with since it meant digging out my old DVD’s and playing favorites. I’m going for romance here, which means no Silence of the Lambs or Goodfellas references. All of these movies feature great romantic pairings, and most of them have the necessary HEA. And if Rick and Ilsa don’t end up together, at least he has Louis.

The “La Marseillaise” scene in Casablanca. Casablanca is one of my favorite movies, and choosing one scene is tough. But this one gets me every time. It sums up Ilsa’s tough choice between Victor and Rick, and it makes you want to jump to your feet and sing with the crowd. Plus it ends with one of the great lines in a movie full of great lines: “I am shocked, shocked, etc.”

The ”meet cute” in Roxanne, Steve Martin’s version of Cyrano De Bergerac. This is such a lovely movie, set in the kind of town you’d like to move to with people you’d like to know, and the first time the hero and heroine meet sets the tone for everything that follows. The characters take a long time to admit their attraction, but when they finally do, you’re cheering for them.

The final scene in When Harry Met Sally. Nora Ephron’s dialog is just perfect: has anyone ever had a better sequence of lines that move from irritation to confusion to love? And then there’s Meg Ryan’s expression as she finally understands that the man she loves loves her right back. Heaven.

The love scene between Dennis Quaid and Ellen Barkin in The Big Easy. The attraction between these two is so hot, it almost walks off the screen. The movie is a romance masquerading as an action movie and a textbook example of Conflict. And eighties Dennis Quaid is an absolute babe!

The kiss in the 1995 version of Persuasion (this clip cuts some of the action to make it a montage sequence). You wait for this moment all the way through the movie, and the fact that the couple have their one and only kiss in front of a circus procession is a perfect visual representation of their feelings of joy.
