She's got a plan... to find herself a man!  

When Piper Shepherd learns she's the very last of her group of girlfriends still single, she decides to embark on an old-fashioned manhunt with her grandmother's Guide to a Marrying a Good Man in hand. The catch? Finding an eligible man in the tiny Mississippi town where she works as a food scientist designing decadent desserts. Her latest client, a hunky Chicago restaurateur, is her first serious target, but there's one little problem...


He's a man... with a ring on his hand!

Ian Bentley's longtime girlfriend just proposed--with a ring! He grudgingly agrees to consider her proposal during a business trip to a little Mississippi town in search of a signature dessert for his chain of coffee shops. He'd been dreading the visit south in the dog days of summer, but suddenly he's looking forward to relaxing in a place where things move in slow motion, and no one is trying to get him to the altar. He doesn't count on the explosive chemistry with the food scientist assigned to his project. But what the woman can do with chocolate is sinful...


A sexy romantic comedy!

To-date, Stephanie has more than ninety published novels to her name, including the popular BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series, and the romantic comedy STOP THE WEDDING!, now a Hallmark Channel movie. Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta. For more information on Stephanie’s books, visit www.stephaniebond.com.

Liar liar, pants on fire…


Carlotta Wren is dazed and confused—everything she thought she knew about her life has been a lie. How can she ever trust anyone again? And where does she go from here?


She hopes a business trip out of town will help to clear her head… instead it lands her in the middle of a murder, as the prime suspect! While Carlotta works frantically to prove her innocence, she’s also forced to confront the lies she’s been telling herself. If she manages to get out of this mess, she’ll have to get real about the kind of life she wants, and the person she wants to spend it with.

Praise for the BODY MOVERS series:


"Body Movers is one of the most delightful series I have read in quite some time. Stephanie Bond shows her audience what a wickedly funny mystery should be all about." --Suspense Romance Writers Book Review


"Stephanie Bond's Body Movers Series is an absolute hoot!" --TheRomanceReadersConnection.com


"Bond has successfully switched to the crime genre, bringing along her trademark humor and panache." --Booklist



If you're looking for laugh-out-loud books, check out the BODY MOVERS series! To-date, titles in the series include:


PARTY CRASHERS (prequel)

BODY MOVERS

2 BODIES FOR THE PRICE OF 1

3 MEN AND A BODY

4 BODIES AND A FUNERAL

5 BODIES TO DIE FOR

6 KILLER BODIES

6 ½ BODY PARTS (novella)

7 BRIDES FOR 7 BODIES

8 BODIES IS ENOUGH

9 BODIES ROLLING

10 BODIES LYING


Q: Do I have to read the BODY MOVERS books in order?


A: It's best to read the first book BODY MOVERS before 2, 3, 4, etc. But PARTY CRASHERS stands alone as a mystery. Carlotta Wren is a secondary character in that book, so you can circle back to read PARTY CRASHERS later (and see Carlotta before she was scared straight!).

I’m a man who takes what he wants. 

What do I want? Her. 

Olive Kernes owned me a debt and she thought that she had paid it back. 

But now I want more. 

I want more than just her time. 

I want more than just her body.

Her new life has torn us apart. 

Now, it’s up to me to make things right. 

I will make the pieces of our love fit back together if it’s the last thing I do. 

But can I do it in time?

 A frothy, funny page-turner! 

 When Belinda Hennessey moves to Atlanta after a humiliating personal setback, she’s eager to start over: new surroundings, new job, new friends. To help adjust to the big city traffic, she joins a carpool with three other women in her office, who give her a crash course on maneuvering the maze of roads named “Peachtree” and tips on navigating office politics, which includes tiptoeing around their tyrannical boss.

Belinda tries desperately to fit in, and even manages to meet a couple of eligible men. Yet fate keeps conspiring against her. Her relationships become more problematic, and when bizarre accidents begin to occur, she starts to think she might be cursed. But when Belinda learns the woman she replaced in the carpool died under mysterious circumstances, she begins to think she’s being targeted—and not for Employee of the Year.

 “Stephanie Bond is in her usual rare form, and that form is utterly delightful.  KILL THE COMPETITION is an excellent, fast-paced, sexy story.  —AOL Romance Fiction Forum

“With a fast pace that moves the story along and smart snappy dialog between the characters, Ms Bond has penned another fascinating read that will leave her readers wanting more from this talented and imaginative author.”  —A Romance Review

 

“Whatever book you want, you will probably find it in KILL THE COMPETITION. Laughter, suspense, passion, and female bonding all combine in this realistically complex and sometimes whacky book. Ms. Bond has created magic, and she pulls more than one rabbit out of the hat to surprise her readers.”  —Academic Planet

Starred review! “DO read this novel.” —Publishers Weekly
