Today is my stop at The Love Factory by Elaine Proctor blog tour! I am so very excited to share some information and details of this book with you. This book is so intriguing and sexy but also very realistic. It has resonated with so many. It truly is a book right up my alley!
Anna is a writer whose small but perfectly formed novels just don’t sell. When she falls on hard times and tries her hand at erotic fiction, she faces an uncomfortable truth. Though she’s a wife and mother of two, her stories fail to fly because she’s never experienced true sexual desire. Even her Sicilian grandmother – wearer of diamante sunglasses and knock-off Louis Vuitton handbags – knows more than she does about true passion.
After a romance-writing workshop doesn’t help, Anna turns to her friends for inspiration. As secrets and desires are revealed, Anna discovers more about the people close to her than she ever knew. When Cordelia, a romance-writing classmate, suggests she borrows an alter ego to banish her inhibitions, a new world opens up to Anna and The Love Factory – a group of writers penning ever more successful sexy stories – is born.
And yet Anna knows that she can’t rely on borrowed passion and an alter ego forever. For her tales to truly sizzle, she needs to find a proper love of her own…
