Blog Tour, Excerpt & Giveaway: Sweet Bliss by Helena Rac

Title: Sweet Bliss 
Author: Helena Rac
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 30th November 2015

From debut author Helena Rac, a sassy, sexy comic tale of second-chance romance and the many uses of icing.
Tessa loves cupcakes. They’re tasty and comforting, and they’ve made her bakery a success. Men, on the other hand, are unreliable jerks who are bound to break her heart. Even if they’re hot enough to melt her frosting.
Tessa is smitten with Luke after a less than graceful encounter on the streets of Chicago, and fate keeps reuniting them. She’s certain he’d be delicious in bed, but there’s just one problem: Tessa’s sworn off long-distance romances, and Luke lives in London. Besides, he’s proven himself to be bad news. Although Tessa’s sexy stranger swears to set aside his player ways after she carries out sweet revenge, she’s far too smart to believe in happily-ever-afters. Luke will need to use every weapon in his arsenal – including a spatula or two – to convince Tessa they’re meant to be together.


“Okay, you’re killing me. I really want to know what’s in the bag,” I say impatiently. “You’ve been carrying it around the entire night. I’m dying to find out what it is!”
“You’d like to know now, wouldn’t you?” he teases. I nod. “Ask me nicely,” Luke demands, and it’s so sexy.
“Please?” I beg candidly, fluttering my eyelashes, giving him the most adorable expression I can manage. His laugh is so charming.
“Okay, but only because you asked so nicely. Close your eyes.” I do as I’m told, squinting to steal a look. “Hey, no peeking!”
“Fine,” I mutter. This time I comply. I gently close my eyes and giggle a little as the excitement of the impending surprise looms. I hear him open the bag and pull out whatever is inside. My senses are hyperaware of all things Luke. The next thing I feel is his finger on my lips, tracing the line of my mouth corner to corner. Top first, then bottom. My body tenses as sweet sensation starts to build low in my belly. This has got to be the most erotic feeling ever. And we’re not even naked.
“God, your lips Tess…” Luke trails off, and I’m … oh, God, I’m a mess of emotions. Need. Anticipation. Lust. All I can think about is his lips. We’ve done some very – how shall I put this? – adventurous things, but we’ve yet to have our first kiss. I just about decide that I don’t care about the gift anymore because all I can suddenly think about is how much I want to kiss him and how much I want him to kiss me. Will his lips be soft and caressing, or will they be needy and passionate when they first meet mine? Will his tongue gently find mine, or will he greedily take it?
I’m holding onto my composure with less than an ounce of control and, rather impatiently, waiting for further instructions. His finger leaves my mouth, and I’m bummed out by the sudden loss of contact. A moment later I feel his finger on my lips again, but this time there’s added something. Something creamy and buttery and … sweet, I realize as I suck on my bottom lip. Strawberry icing. Belonging to the cupcake he bought earlier. He picked it out for me! With my eyes still shut, I savor the sweetness of my own creation.
“Mmm. So good,” I purr.
I open my eyes and am drawn into his gaze. He’s looking at me as if he’s memorizing my face. There’s so much emotion, so much sincerity there, so much desire. He cups my cheeks in his palms and I lean into him. He looks down at my lips, and the moment I’ve been anticipating, the moment I’ve imagined a thousand times over, is so close I can almost imagine the taste of him. The sounds that surround us are faint. I can hear only the whispers of our breath.
“No, this is good,” he breathes, and then his lips lunge greedily against mine. Best. Present. Ever. 

Life is sweeter with cupcakes. And romance novels. That’s why Helena Rac writes contemporary romances about sassy, everyday heroines and swoon-worthy heroes – stories that warm your heart, put a smile on your face, and make you fall in love.
When she’s not writing, Helena loves spending time with her two lovely girls and her incredibly supportive husband. She plays accountant by day; enjoys cooking, traveling, and exploring the outdoors; and reads way past her bedtime. Visit Helena at HelenaRac.com.
