A Perfect Caress by Me blog tour #AARomance

Title: A Perfect Caress
Author: Nana Prah
Genre: Adult, Harlequin Kimani Romance
Published: November 22, 2016
From the very first touch…

The moment suave businessman Dante Sanderson brushes hands with Lanelle Murphy, he can't get her out of his head. The guarded beauty resists all of his polished attempts at seduction. To soften the pain in her past, she's dedicated her life and family fortune to helping others, not chasing sexy millionaires like Dante.

Something about Lanelle makes Dante want to open his heart like never before. He knows their encounters are destiny. Lanelle is sure their sparks mean another heartache is in the making. Yet her cherished new project—a state-of-the-art neonatal unit—brings them together. From charity ball dances to strolls in Milan, desire pushes her…right into his arms. But will Lanelle be able to seize this sweet second chance at love?


A Perfect Caress Excerpt © Nana Prah 2016

Without warning, Dante invaded her space and tilted her into a dip. Gripping the shoulders of his tuxedo, she scowled into his smiling face as the blood rushed to her head. Before she could chastise him, he brought her upright.
She hated surprises. Being out of control ranked number one on her never-to-do list. Dante threatened all of that. From the few stories Vanessa had told her about him, they were as different as a waltz and a tango. “Talk.”
Should she be feeling the deep rumble of his laughter against her chest? When had he pulled her so close? She tried to create space between them. His hand splayed at her back made it impossible.
“Do you ever loosen up?”
She snapped her head up. Even though she was wearing stilettos, he loomed over her. “You’ve met me, what? All of twice? You have no idea who I am.”
He leaned in close, his breath tickling her ear as he whispered, “But I’d like to.”
All thoughts of why she’d come on the dance floor escaped as he pressed his cheek against hers. For once in her life Lanelle lost herself in the gentle sway of a man’s embrace.
Nana Prah first discovered romance in a book from her eight grade summer reading list and has been obsessed with it ever since. Her fascination with love inspired her to write in her favorite genre where happily-ever-after is the rule.

She is a published author of contemporary, multicultural romances. Her books are sweet with a touch of spice. When she’s not writing she’s, over-indulging in chocolate, enjoying life with friends and family, and tormenting nursing students into being the best nurses the world has ever seen.

Spotlight: Destiny Awakened by Me! #ContemporaryRomance #Giveaway

Title: Destiny Awakened
Series: Destiny #4
Author: Nana Prah
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Published: November 6, 2016
Published by: Decadent Publishing
After enduring a traumatic event as a child, Gloria Anokye isn’t sure she’ll ever be enough for any man. With no other option, she entrusts her romantic future into the hands of Esi, midwife-turned-matchmaker. In the meantime, the one guy she’s ever desired has the power to destroy her newfound career as a wedding planner.

Kamal Lawrence has less than six weeks to plan his sister’s wedding. With the help of a wedding planner, they might be able to pull off the best wedding Ghana has ever seen. The trick is to fight off the attraction exploding between them. Once Kamal realizes there’s no way he can or will be able to stay away from Gloria, he plans his seduction.

Will she fall into his arms or keep it strictly professional?


Destiny Awakened Excerpt © Nana Prah 2016

She pointed to an arbor standing to the side of the pond. “They can get married over there with the archway draped with flowers.”
Kamal stumbled backwards when their gazes met. Afraid he’d fall, Gloria reached out and grabbed his arm.
“I didn’t even notice it,” he said as he focused on the gazebo. He looped his arm around her shoulders. “It’s almost like the one I mentioned earlier.”
Gloria wrapped her arm around his waist, molding her body into his side. It’s only to provide him with support since he nearly collapsed a moment ago. How come she never wanted to let go?
Awe still filled his voice as he walked them closer to the pond. “It’s just what I imagined.”
Never had she thought she’d be standing in her precious garden in the embrace of the one man she’d ever desired. When he gazed down into her eyes the air rushed out of her lungs. The need to kiss him overpowered her common sense as she licked her lips. 
One moment, Gloria anticipated the second-best kiss of her life by the man who’d made her toes curl with his first. The next moment found her stumbling forward as he released her. What the hell?
