Blog Tour: A Greek Adonis… or is he? - a guest post by Mandy Baggot + Giveaway!

Get your summer off to a steamy start with Mandy Baggot and her sizzling new read, Truly Madly Greekly.

We've got an all inclusive tour chock-a-block with reviews, guest posts and a giveaway, as the book scorches a trail across a variety of blogs!

81HLd9MSlVL._SL1500_  What they say: Sun, sea and a sexy stranger - a whole lot of fun just got a lot more complicated. Capable, confident and career-driven, Ellen had her dream job and a marriage proposal from boyfriend Ross. Life was good, her future set. Until it wasn’t and everything fell apart… Whisked off to the beautiful island of Corfu to plan her sister Lacey’s big, fat, Greek wedding, Ellen is hoping some time out will help clear her head and heal her heart. But letting go of her past is not going to be easy. With Lacey in full on Bridezilla mode, Ellen is soon distracted from her own problems. And when the all-inclusive treats on offer at hotel Blue Vue include one gorgeous, brooding Adonis – Yan – Ellen finds him difficult to resist. But Ellen isn’t looking for love or lust, or anything involving too much ouzo…or is she?

Fans of Lucy Diamond, Miranda Dickinson and Lindsey Kelk will want to escape to Corfu with Mandy Baggot this summer.
A Greek Adonis… or is he?
Guest post by Mandy Baggot
Who am I talking about? Well, it’s Yan Alexandrov, the hero of my latest sizzling summer read, Truly Madly Greekly! And Yan isn’t Greek! During my visits to the Mareblue Beach Hotel, in Corfu I’ve met animation team members from all over the globe – Africa, Romania, Italy, Germany and many more. One of those countries was Bulgaria and through talking to friends and researching this country, I realised Yan just had to be Bulgarian to make his story work. Yan is extremely hardworking and he’s come to Corfu looking for a new start. Things didn’t turn out the way he’d hoped in his native country and he’s desperate to put those times behind him and move on to a brighter, better future. Yan is honest and loyal and hates the amount of lying he’s had to do to get by. He usually plays things by the book, obeying all the rules… until he meets my heroine, Ellen. He’s six foot tall with short dark hair and incredible blue eyes. He also has killer abs and toned forearms from all that volleyball and football he instructs. Do I need to say any more to tempt you? Come and meet Yan and the rest of the cast of characters in Truly Madly Greekly now!
