The Company She Keeps

A loyal workaholic in a small marketing firm with a dysfunctional staff, a bluetooth-wearing client shamelessly flirting with her while his account is all that stands between the firm and failure, and a romance that manages to stay afloat despite challenges from every quarter.

The Company She Keeps by Barbara Kellyn drew me into the marketing world and made it interesting with a loyal, determined, intelligent heroine, a quirky supporting cast, and a hero that may or may not take off his bluetooth device during sex.

I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more Barbara Kellyn. If you haven’t checked out her first release, Morning Man, you should do that. Now. You won’t regret it.

Enjoy these fun lines from The Company She Keeps and pick up your copy soon. If you buy direct from Lyrical Press in the month of July, you can get it for just $2!

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
