Marie Tuhart

Hey everyone, here's your chance to meet and greet author Marie Tuhart...she has a new book coming out this month!


Marie Tuhart can't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hands. A voracious reader since childhood, she has a TBR piles all over her home. Though her family doesn’t really understand the stacks of books in her study, or the way Marie will stare off into space when she's thinking of yet another sexy scene between her hero and heroine.

When she isn't reading or writing, Marie loves to spend time in bookstores. A world traveler, she enjoys searching out corners of the glove she hasn't experienced yet. While still totally open to finding her own tall, dark and handsome, she is certainly enjoying the journey.

"My dream," she says, "is to give readers as much pleasure with my erotic romance stories as my reading has given to me. That, for me, will be true success."

In Plain Sight by Marie Tuhart


Bad boy businessman Joe Bradshaw has achieved almost everything he’s wanted in life, but his strait-laced colleague Victoria Collins is proving an elusive challenge. A steamy encounter in the elevator begins a wild journey of sensual discovery. Joe’s determined to break through Vicki’s barriers to reveal the red-hot woman hiding inside. But Vicki is stalked by her past—her ex-fiancĂ© will stop at nothing to get her back. Falling in love and keeping Vicki safe could be the biggest challenges of Joe’s life.

Please visit Marie's website and enter her contest.

Marie also posts to her blog every Monday

Here's the cover of In Plain Sight will be available from The Wild Rose Press on January 21, 2010, in the Wilder Catalogue.

Hi Marie,

I'm really eager to get In Plain Sight. Can you tell us what gave you the idea for the story?


Nancy said...

Marie, the blurb alone is exciting! Can't wait to get the book!

The blurb does sound exciting; this book will be in my TBR also. I like the cover too!

Also, congratulations from me too!

Your friend,

Isabel said...

Congratulations, Marie, on your upcoming debut! I've marked my calendar already. :)The cover is gorgeous. Very hot and sexy! Yum!

I have three questions:
As a reader I'd like to know more about your characters, (especially the hero). What are they like?

As a writer, when writing a book, what comes first, the characters or plot?

And for fun, what is your favorite ice cream flavor? *Grin*

Hi Nicci,

Thanks for stopping by. What gave me the story idea? Well, I was reading an article about what to do if an elevator became stuck. I though about what would happen if a man and a woman who had the hots for each other, but one of they was denying it, were stuck together in an elevator. That's how the story started out, and it grew from there.

Hi Tiki,

Thanks for stopping by.

Marie Tuhart said...

Hi Francelia,

Glad you could make it and thanks for the congratulations.

Marie Tuhart said...

Hi Isabel,

Glad you dropped by. To answer your questions:

As a reader I'd like to know more about your characters, (especially the hero). What are they like?

Joe is a bad boy through and through. He temps Vicki into all sorts of situations she'd never thought she'd be in. But Joe is also tender and loving, he realizes that Vicki is the woman for him, now he has to convince her.

As a writer, when writing a book, what comes first, the characters or plot?

Mainly the characters. I'll have a situation and I'll throw two characters into that situation and see what happens. That's what happened with the elevator scene in the book.

And for fun, what is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I'd have to say Ben and Jerry's Vanilla Carmel Fudge it combines all my favorites.

Tory Richards said...

It's my pleasure, Marie! I wish you many sales...I like the sexy cover too:)

Isabel said...

Marie, thanks for answering my questions. I'm always interested to learn how story ideas come about for authors. Thanks for sharing your insights with us.

I hope you didn't mind the ice cream question, lol. After I posted, I wondered out loud, "what if she doesn't like ice cream and prefers sorbet?. *G*
I love Ben & Jerry's too.

Nicci said...

Hi Marie,

Thanks for answering my question about how you got your story idea. It always amazes me, the creative process. Can't wait...


Dorothy said...

Marie! Forgive me for taking so long to get here. I love your debut cover. OUTSTANDING WOMAN!! I've thought about being trapped in an elevator, but my fear is I'll have to go to the bathroom Can't wait to read what thinks to do while trapped in an elevator with Vikki. There aren't any security cameras are there?

Hey Yasmine,

Great that you stopped by. No elevator camera's that would have spoiled their fun :)

Linda Henderson said...

Loved the excerpt. Can't wait to read the whole thing.

Nancy Bristow said...

Marie...Sounds like my kind of read. The elevator tease delightful. I'd find a way to drape the security cameras (or not)if it was an issue *grin*.

I applaud your dream and if that's the way you write, I can't see how you can be anything but successful.

Glad I'm not the only one with a TBR mountain. I long ago admitted to being addicted.

I signed up for your newsletter for a chance to win In Plain Sight. If that doesn't happen, it sounds like a good book to add to my absurdly long TBB. Best of luck to you.
