Here are this episode’s read-along selections:


Author:  Sian Ceinwen

Title: The Baby

Genre: Rock star romance

Sleep with a rock star, they said. It'll be fun, they said.

Lita Ciccone just wanted to meet her favorite band. She had no interest in tangling with sexy guitarist, Sebastian Fox, whose favorite past time is groupies.

Then she meets him. He's smart, he's funny, and he calls her princess. Suddenly, she understands why so many women fall at his feet, because that's exactly what she wants to do.

They spend one amazing night together, and their contraception fails. Now, Lita is facing a life tied to the world's biggest player.

Sebastian is sexy as sin, but can she really raise a baby with him?

The Baby is the third installment in the Cruise Control series by Sian Ceinwen. If you like sexy and funny books, that make you feel deeply for the characters, then you will adore falling in love with Sebastian and Lita.

--Abigail's Targeted Tip:

Brainstorm!  Before writing, spend 5-10 minutes to brainstorm relevant puns and phrases.
