Hello and welcome to the blog tour for Thaw! This F/F romance is the second in my “Seasons of Love” quartet, but stands alone– though readers of Whiteout may recognize some familiar faces. Thaw features an asexual librarian from Brooklyn, who meets an ice-cold super model from Canada, and I hope you’ll read on to learn more about Abby and Gabrielle’s romance.
Of course, don’t forget to drop a comment on this post… one lucky winner will get a $10 Amazon gift card!
I’m a very visual person, so I always collect photos as I’m writing, to help inspire me. This photo board is one that I made up especially for Thaw, and customized to the asexual flag color scheme.
Thaw is a story about two women who find love in spite of the odds. They’re from opposite worlds—the librarian who’s struggling to make ends meet, and the world-famous supermodel with her Manhattan condo. But somewhere between the fancy dinners and the photoshoots, and the library stacks and cheap dates, they find a middle ground of books and travel, comfort movies and good food. They find happiness, trust… and love.
About the Book
Abigail is content with her quiet life as a librarian. But when she’s invited to a high-profile charity auction, she finds herself dancing with one of the most beautiful women she’s ever met. Abby’s sure she’ll never see her again, but then Gabrielle calls and asks her on a date. And soon after, another.
Supermodel Gabrielle Levesque has a reputation as the Ice Queen—cold and untouchable—except she warms up whenever she’s with Abby. Only Abby isn’t interested in the heat between them; she’s asexual, and she’s worried that admitting as much to Gabrielle might spell the end of their blooming romance.
They’re two different women from two very different worlds, but Abby knows she can love Gabrielle. Her passion for books, travel, and theater prove there’s more to the Ice Queen than meets the eye. But they’ll have to overcome Abby’s fears—and Gabrielle’s own threatening secrets—in order to find their way to love.
