Welcome Guest Blogger and Best-Selling Author Vallory Vance!


This new author is a color inside the lines Human Resources professional living in the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex by day. After her family consisting of a husband of almost twenty years, three kids and two dogs have filled her evenings with laughter, she sits down to her laptop to write tales of the first moments of falling in love when nothing else seems to matter.
As a fortieth birthday present to herself, she decided to share her stories. Vallory Vance is the pen name she uses to write contemporary romances that range from sweet to spicy. You can find her most days on the Vallory V ~ A Romance Author Blog.

Sharon: Vallory, tell me how you chose your recipe for the Passionate Cooks cookbook.

Vallory: I think of A Hearty Breakfast and Flannel Pajamas when I think of my recipe.
On the surface my recipe, Second Chance Tortillas – a hearty blend of eggs, sausage and potatoes served on warm flour tortillas – doesn’t instantly bring to mind a romantic breakfast.
It’s more of a ‘stick to your ribs’ kind of meal that can carry you through a busy morning to a late lunch and can be easily modified to include what you have in the fridge at the time. Not exactly the concoction of a passionate cook.
However, you have to think of the couple enjoying this breakfast one late morning. Of the hero who pulls on the flannel bottoms and tosses the top to the heroine as he scrambles out to the kitchen, hoping now to impress her with his culinary skills.
From the few basic ingredients in his fridge, he whips up a quick meal. For something special, he prepares Bloody Marys and serves her in bed.
They eat snuggled close under a heavy comforter.

They reminisce about a vacation to the Grand Cayman’s…a kiss in between bites…and then…
See how romantic Second Chance Tortillas can be? Just use your imagination and enjoy!

Sharon: Wow, that makes me want to snuggle with my honey, that's for sure. Tell me a little about your book, 'Music for Her Soul '.
 I love the cover!

Vallory: Lena Spencer is a practical woman whose world is carefully ordered by schedules and timelines and she doesn’t like surprises. So when she receives a call from a beautiful model detailing an affair with her boyfriend, her world is thrown into chaos. With the help of her boisterous sister and niece, Lena manages to pick up the pieces and resume her role as a single working mom with the added bonus of a few slinky dresses to show off the figure she’d always hidden.  Feeling sexy and confident, she is almost prepared for Ethan’s return from a European tour. Almost.

Musician, Ethan Holden, realized too late that he’d miscalculated the level of Lena’s fury. A ten month tour through Europe and a crazed fan had proven too much for the both of them. Returning to his hometown, he is determined to win her back despite her resistance. But can he give up the music he loves if that’s the only thing she wants?
Available from as a Kindle Edition
