Blurb for Unintentional:
Cade, the gorgeous song man, has every reason to steer clear of
commitment and train his soulful eyes, killer dimples, and sexy voice on every
beauty swaying to his band. So why is it that he finds himself truly, deeply
and unintentionally, fixed on the one woman who is not so easily swept away?
The sequel to Intentional, the debut romantic novel by MK Harkins,
Unintentional is the heart-racing new work that follows the tangled thread of
Cade in the aftermath of his heartbreak in losing the one woman he thought was
his soul mate. After taking a hiatus from his job as an engineer, as well as
his role in the band as lead singer, Cade reemerges in the Seattle music scene.
Enter Laurel, the tenacious and determined music agent. Laurel is determined to
sign him, no matter how clearly reluctant he is. Though they try to resist one
another romantically, the magnetism is as immediate as it is powerful.
Unintentional offers readers an intricate, riveting story about
the fraught paces of love, while also offering strains of heartwarming humor.
With rich detail, authentic characters, and plenty of blood-pumping romance,
Unintentional is a moving and multilayered look at how love can slip through
our fingers, only to be pulled back again at the most surprising, stirring
moments.
Excerpt from Unintentional:
I scan the room, taking in the
atmosphere, when I notice the fourth member of the band jump onto the stage.
Oh! My jaw drops as I look at him. This couldn’t be the lead singer. He’s,
he’s…almost unreal. I rifle through my notes with shaking hands. Sophie
prepared a bio on each one, but didn’t include pictures. Maybe if I had some
warning, I wouldn’t be sitting here like some idiot with my mouth gaping open.
What the hell is wrong with me? It’s
that guy, Cade, or whatever his name is. I’m so flustered, I can’t keep the
pages in order. He is absolutely gorgeous! What is my problem? I’m a
professional. I see good looking men all the time.
           
I look back over at Cade as he
smiles at someone across the bar. Oh my God, he has dimples. Could he be any
better looking? Nope. I think I just turned into a groupie. Well, maybe I’m not
that far gone yet, but I’m close. I have to get control of myself. I take a
deep breath in, hoping my heart will return its normal rate, exhale out. It
didn’t work, so I try again.
I’m in the process of calming myself
when Sophie asks, “Laurel, you feeling okay?”
I look back at her. “Have you seen
the lead singer yet? Sophie, that man should not be legal.”
Sophie looks up at the stage, and
her expression turns to shock.
She laughs at me. “I’d be willing to
get arrested for that one!”
Good, it’s not just me. This should
be an interesting night. I’m fanning myself, trying to order my body to calm
down. I look over at Sophie, she’s grinning at me.
What?” I ask.
She laughs. “Oh, Laurel, this is
rich! I’ve never seen you in such a state. Why don’t you go up and introduce
yourself before they start?”
“No, I want to see how they perform
first. Don’t you remember? We’re going to check them out first. We don’t want
to waste their time or ours if they don’t cut it.”
Sophie shrugs. “I don’t think it
would be a waste. Look at them, Laurel. I know Cade is super-hot, but did you
see the other one? I think his name is Ayden. Can’t we just meet them anyway?
Even if they aren’t what we’re looking for, they might be in another area. You
know what I mean?” She winks at me.
Who is the last
person you hugged?
My
husband

What is the story of your first kiss?
All
I can say about it – slobbery, wet, and disturbing (summer before 6th
grade)

What is the sweetest
thing someone has done for you?
There
are so many things! I can’t even pick one! I’m surrounded by a wonderful group
of family and friends.

What kind of music
you like?
All
of it. I appreciate the talent it takes to put music together

Do you like to dance?
Yes,
when you put a few glasses of champagne in my system
