Guest post by Katee Robert + Giveaway

I am happy to welcome back to Ex Libris Katee Robert, who is here today celebrating the release of Chasing Mrs. Right, the second book in her sexy Come Undone series, published by Entangled's Brazen line. Join us as Katee tells us a bit more about her characters and you could even win a copy of Chasing Mrs. Right (along with another great and very sexy prize ;-)!


Characters. They’re the things that can make or break a book, and loving characters is what’ll move people to follow a series (I don’t know about you, but I simply CANNOT wait until Kresley Cole writes Nix’s book).

My series, Come Undone, has a whole cast of characters, all wanting their own chance at love. In the first book, Wrong Bed, Right Guy, we’re introduced to Elle and Gabe as the main characters. Elle is kind of uptight and a little bit snooty, but she ends up being pursued by Gabe—a tattooed nightclub owner. Not exactly the type of man you’d expect a good girl to fall head over heels for, but he’s got a really sweet center that made him one of my favorite heroes to write.

In Elle and Gabe’s book, we’re also introduced to variety of side characters. Nathan—the man Elle initially thought to seduce—is Gabe’s little brother. He’s tall, dark, and mysterious, and he’s got a whopper of a secret (and his book shall be the third in the Come Undone series).

The heroine in Chasing Mrs. Right is Roxanne, Elle’s best friend. She’s a little bit mouthy, and she’s got a whole boatload of commitment issues, but she’s the perfect balance to get Elle out of her shell. And who better to bring this woman face to face with her issues and help her get past them but Elle’s older brother?

We only meet Ian via a phone call from Elle in the first book, but he made such an impression on me that I couldn’t write the next book without him in it. He’s actually Nathan’s best friend and the reason Elle was in a position to know Nathan in the first place.

So, you see, the Come Undone series is full of interconnecting characters! What are some of your favorite series who have characters that have kept you reading?


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Katee Robert, learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?

She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Roxanne Stokes doesn’t believe in love. She does, however, believe in the sexy-as-sin stranger who literally knocks her off her feet in front of a nightclub. The chemistry sparking between them takes her breath away, and she’ll do anything to ease the pain in his eyes…until she realizes the handsome stranger is her best friend’s older brother who’s just come home from war.

Ian Walser had no idea the gorgeous woman he slept with the night of his homecoming party was his little sister’s best friend—or that she’d be gone before morning. Roxanne’s touch soothes him in a way nothing else can, and he’s not ready to walk away from that yet. Not when spending time with her gave Ian a glimpse of everything he’s ever wanted.

When his sister unwittingly pushes them together, he sees his chance. But convincing a woman who doesn’t believe in love that she’s his Mrs. Right might be harder than any mission Ian’s undertaken. Good thing this soldier likes a challenge...
