My name is JADE BALLARD, and this is the story of how a freak accident with a cookie changed the life of a semi-reformed people-pleaser (that’s me!).

After a disastrous marital near-miss Jade Ballard retreats to San Antonio, cutting herself off from the world in general and more specifically her family’s country club lifestyle, which she no longer wants any part of. She takes comfort in food and the safety of an internet love affair.

Rowdy Yates is a semi-reformed womanizer who’s leery of long-term entanglements. Until Jade, he never seriously considered anything beyond a “Wife-For-A-Night.”

After months of flirting on the internet the couple meets, only to discover they already know one another. Rowdy has always mistaken Jade’s shy reserved nature for snobbishness, and Jade has always viewed the woman-loving Rowdy as a Redneck Casanova. But the seven months they spent getting to know one another formed an attraction neither can fight.



I was lucky enough to be chosen for the blog tour for The Big Girl’s Guide to Buying Lingerie so I refuse to give up spoilers… but I will say this was ONE GOOD BOOK!
This was the first time I had experienced the unique humor of Amie Stuart. The story follows Jade, a plus-size debutante from Texas Hill Country who meets the man of her dreams online; and Rowdy Yates, a self proclaimed Redneck Casanova who has little interest in relationships beyond his tried and true Wife-for-a-Night policy. Jade and Rowdy really cant stand each other. She thinks, for the most part, that Rowdy is a man-whore who flirts shamelessly with each and every woman he encounters. His opinion of her is really no better – a stuck up, spoiled princess who could stand to lose a few pounds.
One thing I loved about the book is how the author handled the issue of the h being overweight, plus size… whatever is the PC term these days. Jade, of course, being a normal human, was uncomfortable with her size. What woman isnt? And Rowdy, God love him, well… let’s just say, he handled it like a true Southern gentleman. Really the only thing I would change about this book was the POVs. The chapters alternated and I normally like that, except Jade’s POV was written in first person while Rowdy’s was written in third person. It was hard for me to follow. The story was a great one, but this kept it from flowing like it should have. This is my opinion only, it might not bother anyone else. I really loved it, and if not for the first/third person issue, I would have given it 5 stars. As is, I give it a solid 4****wickedgoodstars and I look forward to reading more from this author. -asw

No doubt the shrinks would have a field day with her head, but she’s seen the error of her ways and considers all those other jobs ‘research’ for the writing gig.

She’s a multiple contest finalist as well as a trained contest judge and is affectionately know as The Terminator by her critique partners. She’s written as CELIA STUART for Black Lace Books, & Liquid Silver Books, and as AMIE STUART for Kensington Aphrodisia, she has a short story (PEACHES ‘N CREAM) in Zane’s CARMEL FLAVA 2, and launched Cobblestone Press’s new short erotica line, Wicked.
