Resisting the Rancher by Roxanne Snopek (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please welcome Roxanne Snopek!

Best Kisses

Today I’m talking about kisses, specifically movie scenes. There are so many great love stories on the silver screen; here are a few of my favorites. If you’re like me, they turn you to mush, every time! ☺

Titanic (of course!)

From the current blockbuster, Divergent:

Twenty-Seven Dresses

Sleepless in Seattle

The Notebook

I could go on and on.

In my current release, RESISTING THE RANCHER, my hero Jonah gives Celia a first-kiss that shocks her them both completely. It’s sweet and tender and spontaneous and confusing.

But later on, they kiss again and this time, there’s no confusion whatsoever. I absolutely loved writing this scene. And this is the incredibly romantic song that inspired it:

What do you think? Is that a great kiss, or what?

Country veterinarian Celia Gamble is in trouble. A misunderstanding from her past is rearing its ugly head and the only person she can turn to is Jonah Clarke—her family’s lawyer and, as it turns out, her brother Zach’s best friend and her childhood crush. She always wanted Jonah to see her as a bona fide woman, but as a woman who’s being wrongfully blackmailed for seducing a married man? Not on her life.Jonah is happy to help little CeeCee Gamble, if only she’d come clean about why she’s being blackmailed. But with Zach’s wedding on the horizon and Zach’s fashionista fiancée Desiree giving CeeCee a makeover, the little duckling Jonah remembers is turning into a definite swan. And the unwritten law on sisters is clear—hands off. Jonah must resist Celia or lose the only true family he’s ever known.

  8. Amber, Cheryl, Erin, Rachael, lovely to see you here! I'm so tickled when readers play along!

    Renald, you're right about the Persuasion kiss, which reminds me of the final scene in Pride and Prejudice. A single, chaste kiss and it's a chest-grabber, every time I watch it.

  9. Aw... it's fun to see some of those kisses! And it's amazing how different kisses can be, even with the same person--guess that how it all stays exciting ;) Thanks for sharing, Roxanne!
