Welcome author Lily Bishop
Bio:Lily Bishop writes romances about strong, smart women and the men who love them. She grew up in north Georgia, and received a Bachelor's in English from the University of Georgia. She enrolled in the MFA program in Creative Writing at Purdue University, but left after a year and returned to Atlanta. Like a siren's call, Athens wanted her back, and she returned to Athens where she received her Master's in Public Administration. She now lives in the Upstate of South Carolina and works full-time as a database administrator for a university. She has been happily married for 15 years and has two children. When she is not writing, she and her family are playing German style board games or going to football games.
Lily writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense, and her goal is to blur the lines between romance, chick lit, and women's fiction. Her books are peppered with family members who make things complicated and couples who can't seem to find a way to be together. Lily writes with a Southern flair, but her characters find themselves in exotic locations and sometimes dangerous situations. She loves to interact with readers about her characters and stories.
Title: No Strings Attached
Laura Todd isn’t the type to have a hot weekend with a complete stranger in Las Vegas, but Fox Thornton is different. He’s funny, and smart, and he really liked her presentation on marketing. But she never expected him to turn up at her office the Monday after as her new boss.
Fox Thornton keeps business separate from pleasure. He never would have spent the weekend with Laura if he knew she worked for his new client. Unfortunately, once he thinks someone is cooking the books, and the best suspect is Laura.
Which is the real Laura, the smart and funny consultant he met in Vegas, or the scheming administrative assistant he finds in Miami? Over a million dollars is missing, and he will do what he has to do, even it means sending the blonde beauty to prison.Book Buy Links:

Romance should be about fantasy, so we visit exotic locations for this story. We start out in Las Vegas, but not just any scene in Las Vegas, a high-dollar penthouse suite. I researched some of the expensive suites in Vegas and really liked the idea that those suites come with a butler. From there we go to Miami, board a luxury yacht, and eventually sail to the Bahamas. I’ve taken several cruises in the Caribbean, but for this book I created my own island. It’s a cross between Atlantis and the island of St. Kitt’s, also known as St. Christopher. I love the historic fortress called Brimstone that I toured on St. Kitt’s, so I created the fictitious “Castle Casino and Resort” in a reproduction castle based on an old British fortress. No Strings is the beginning of a series of connected books. The second book focuses on the brother to the main male character in the first book, and the third book focuses on the sister to the main female character in the first book. There’s a little bit of a mystery that runs through all three books, but they each stand alone. The second book is titled Under His Protection and is due out in either May or June. It’s with the editor now.
