Karen Erickson Virtual Book Tour

Today, please welcome my guest author, Karen Erickson. At the bottome of the post you will find some fabulous giveaways. One for COMMENTING ON THIS BLOG and one for the GRAND PRIZE!

As a writer, I’m constantly in search of inspiration. I don’t always need them, but for whatever reason, the Worth It series was very visual-driven, inspiration-wise. Maybe it has something to do with the glamorous aspect to it. After all, the series centers around the Worth brothers, who run one of the most famous luxury goods houses in the world, Worth Luxury.

My favorite source for visual inspiration is Pinterest. Talk about a time suck. You can find yourself scrolling around for hours there. I claim all that time spent searching as working (ha!) but come on, it’s also just pure fun. So many pretty pictures, hot men, funny quotes, great recipes, hot men, wonderful craft ideas and did I mention hot men? *winks*

Months ago, I created a Worth It Pinterest board. Go check it out if you’re so inclined (and follow me if you’re on Pinterest if you’d like!).

I’ve identified as many of the pictures as possible with their character names. There are some good ones, too. Handsome, sexy men, beautiful women and plenty of jet set type photos since our couples do a fair amount of traveling.

Let me know what you think of the Worth It Pinterest board and I’ll enter you in a contest for a chance to win a copy of the first book in the series, Worth the Scandal! Plus, don’t forget to enter the blog tour contest for a chance to win a $50 Amazon or B&N gift card!

Worth The Challenge book blurb:
Together, they’re magic. Now to capture it in a bottle…
Worth It, Book 3
For once in his errant life, Rhett Worth is ready to prove to his older brothers he’s more than good looks and a woman-melting smile. Except he’s screwed up. And it’s about to hit the fan as he prepares to tell them he’s failed to deliver the master perfumer, Michel Durand, to create Worth Luxury’s signature scent.
Then salvation walks through the boardroom door, all wrapped up in a petite, seductive package.
Gabriella Durand is prepared to beg the Worths to give her capricious father another chance. Instead, she finds the devastatingly handsome Rhett Worth offering it to her as if he’d planned it all along. And Gabriella, hungry to emerge from her father’s shadow, jumps at it.
Soon they’re in Maui to hunt for the perfect scent…and find it in the tropical breeze that washes across their entwined bodies. Now the pressure is on to capture that passion in a bottle—before they let love complicate the delicate mix. Before a whiff of betrayal threatens to destroy everything.
