Spotlight on The Plan by Qwen Salsbury with a giveaway

Day of Employment: 359

11:05 a.m.

Location: Cubicles outside Canon’s office.

Co-workers: Betting on how long Canon’s new PA will last.

Me: No doubts. Ms. Gum-smacker won’t last the day. I need to place my bet.

Manolo Blahnik’s New Fall Shoes: Mine. As soon as Madeline hands over my winnings.

Emma Baker has never spoken a word to Alaric Canon, nor has he to her. But she’s studied him every day across the office tundra for almost a year. Canon is hard and fierce, terrifying and beautiful. He’s also the most stern, unforgiving person Emma has ever seen. Emma’s co-workers run a betting pool for Personal Assistant terminations. There’s a separate pot for the day one leaves without crying. Not likely…Canon made a former Navy SEAL cry.

He has high standards and low tolerance. Everyone knows it. Everyone stays away. Everyone who can, that is. Except Emma. She can’t look away. Alaric Canon is the single most attractive man she’s ever seen. Bar none.

Canon has never noticed her. Not once in almost a year. She’s not even a blip on his radar. But she will be. His radar will be blipless no more.

It is a goal. Emma has a plan.

About the Author

Qwen Salsbury was born in Kansas and somehow keeps ending up back there. Raised on her grandparent’s five acre homestead within the city limits, her imagination was honed during long days of quiet play and spartan access to a TV signal. Now mother to handsome boys, she strives to ensure they appreciate potential adventures found within the pages of a book, an honest day’s work, and what ingenuity may yield from mundane objects like a string and a cup. The boys prefer a PS3.

After spending time in corporate America, she returned to school and received a BA in English, Creative Writing and Poetry from Pittsburg State University, the alma mater of Pulitzer Prize winning poet, James Tate. She worked on a Masters there until going on to receive a juris doctorate from Washburn School of Law.

A seven-time Sigma Tau Delta writing award winner, her fiction and poetry have appeared in literary magazines and have been selected by fiction communities as featured story of the month and year. Predominantly a writer of romance, her romantic fiction varies from contemporary to historical to fantasy, though often with a humorous slant and poetic undertones.

For reasons she can’t even articulate herself, she decided to start writing fiction again while solo parenting and attending law school (during Constitutional Law class, to be exact.).

  1. Definitively provocative yes but i don't really see the link with the summary... to be honest the cover doesn't make me want to read this book quite the opposite so i will wait until you or amber tell me if it's worth it or not

  2. Thank you for participating and hosting The Plan. :)

  3. I wanted to read this one. It sounded interesting. If I do I'll let you know. :)

    1. thank you but don't feel obligated to read it on my account ;)

    2. :) I read a review on another blog that made it sound interesting.

  4. Very provocative cover! I hope she has her computer camera turned off. If there is a lot of humor in the story, it might be interesting.

    1. i didn't think of the camera ^^;; like you i hope it's off or highly securised

    2. :) That would be really funny.

  5. I think it sounds interesting I'd love to know her plan, but the cover may match the book even if it doesn't match the blurb. I hope so because that is one of my pet peeves covers not matching books
