We’re Havin’ a Launch Party!

By Robin Kaye

It’s a virtual party, but in my humble opinion, those are the best kind. You can come in your jammies if you want and no one will snicker at you. There’s no need to dress up or do your hair, and there’s no need to diet for a week before hand. No one will count how many drinks you have, or how many times you visit the dessert bar. We’re all just happy you’re here. We’re so happy in fact that we’re giving away a copy of Breakfast in Bed to a lucky commenter. So come on in, make yourself comfortable, and be sure to make some small-talk to be entered.

Here’s an excerpt of Breakfast in Bed:

Rich followed her to the kitchen and leaned against the breakfast bar, staring at her as if he could see beneath her clothes. It was unnerving, and she reminded herself of all the reasons she didn't like him.

"I know you don't like me much."

Becca took a cup from the cabinet. Ah, and he was a mind reader too.

"I don't know why, but it doesn't matter."

"It doesn't?" Wow, he was good. Not in that way, she reminded herself. And no, she wasn't even that curious. She poured herself coffee.

He shook his head. "It might be a good thing."

She looked up from the cup she was filling. "How can my not liking you be a good thing?"

"I need help, and I know it might come as a shock, but most women find me attractive. That would just complicate matters."

"Color me surprised. Since you know I don't like you, I suppose I can give up pretending that I do."

He nodded and smiled a sinfully sexy smile that made her hormones do the cha-cha. She stepped out of the kitchen and picked up the sheets, blanket, and pillow she'd left for him in the living room, and returned them to the closet. Anything to get away from him. The man was a threat to her equilibrium. Unfortunately, he followed. "Okay, so since I don't have to be nice, and you're weirdly happy about that, why don't you just leave?"

"I have a proposition for you."



"That's the answer to your proposition."

"Don't you even want to know what it is?"

"Not especially, but I will listen if you promise it will get you out my door sooner." He smiled again, and she rolled her eyes. She just wanted to be alone already. When it came down to it, she wasn't much of a social person. She spent most of her time alone in her studio, and she was happy to do it. She didn't need a man or company to keep her happy.

"Gina dumped me. She said I wasn't relationship material because I don't cook, clean, and do my own laundry. How hard can it be? I just need a trainer."

"A trainer?"

"Yeah, like a domestic coach. Someone to show me the ropes. So I learn whatever I have to learn to make Gina think I'm not such a bad bet." He might as well have asked her to streak through Times Square during rush hour.

Rich picks up the gauntlet and mayhem ensues. He soon discovers that he enjoys pissing Becca off, it becomes a hobby. Before long, he's having so much fun hanging out with Becca, he's almost forgotten why he started this whole thing in the first place--to get his girlfriend back in time to go to a charity benefit with his boss. When Rich meets with Gina to tell her he'd changed, he realizes that he doesn't want her in the first place, the only one he wants Becca, who still doesn't like him. It was a good thing he had a talent for wearing her down.

If you want a sneak peek at the first chapter of Breakfast in Bed, Romeo, Romeo, or Too Hot to Handle, they’re on my website at along with the Domestic Gods Top Ten List, reviews, and a calendar of my blog tour. I'll be giving away a copy of Breakfast in Bed to a lucky commenter with this and every blog through the month of January, so stop by and say hi for your chance to win.

    Lifting a cyber glass of the bubbling and toasting you not only for another bestseller but also a very Happy New Year!

  5. Hi Kim~

    Welcome to the party, I'll try not to hog all the chocolate.

    Helen~ Oh sweetie, I hope everything is okay with your hubby. I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers. Enjoy BiB and I'll make sure the champagne keeps flowing, I hope the New Year improves for you.

    Terry~ Enjoy the party and thanks for the well wishes. Happy New Year!

    Danielle~ Happy New Year! I'm so glad you're here!

  6. Yay, Robin!!! Happy Launch Day and congrats on another terrific book. I hope you sell a million of them!

  7. Congratulations on the book release and launch party. "Breakfast in Bed" is great.
    Best of luck.

  8. Oh Robin! This sounds adorable. It has your witty stamp all over it.

    Great party, too. Loved the chocolate mousse.

  9. Just wanted to add my congratulations and best wishes! No champagne for me, though I will indulge in chocolate.

  10. CONGRATS, Robin!!!

    Like everyone else, I can't WAIT to get my hands on BiB! Keep up the GREAT WORK, Girlfriend. Now I'll just indulge in some chocolate brownies with rocky road ice cream. And may the ice cream be the only rocky road ahead for all of us this year. :-)


  11. There aren't many authors that can pull me from my historical box. So far though I haven't gone wrong with any of the Casababes, I've read.

    Congratulations, Robin! I look forward to reading your books.

  12. Hi Cheryl~ Sorry, it took me a while to say hi. I was tending bar and the place is hopping. Thanks for coming!

    Hi Mason~

    I'm so glad you could come to the blow out. There are chocolate brownies--your favorites, on the chocolate bar.

    Hi MM~ Welcome to the party! Yeah, that chocolate mousse is pretty killer.

    Margay~Thanks for coming. I have chocolate egg creams at the bar, in my humble opinion, they're much tastier than champagne and non-alcoholic. They're a Brooklyn specialty. Enjoy!

  13. Major congratulations, Robin!! I still have some bubbly cider left over from New Year's so will be lifting a glass to celebrate your launch. You now have a trilogy! How cool is that?

    I will definitely indulge is some chocolate and bring my famous Mexican dip and chips to add that salty to the sweet. Party on Casababes!!

    I am behind in my Robin Kaye reading, I confess with shame. Gotta get caught up! THTH is staring at me and Emily is constantly telling me to read it. It is perfect as I will have some time after my launch and I am between books! Excellent! Keep up the great work. All the best of luck. Sell a million!

  14. Hi Robin,
    Congratulations on the release of your new book. It sounds great.
