  • Genre: Adult Contemporary / Romance
  • Even the best-laid plans can go awry.
    Single-mom Kiersten Worth knows a bottle of champagne and night of hot, no-strings-attached sex is the perfect solution to her jilted bride blues…and Garrett Kelly, long-time friend and her teenaged son’s sexy basketball coach, is just the stud for the job.
    Garrett wants more from the elusive temptress than a casual affair, but he never expects it to come in the form of an unexpected pregnancy. When he proposes an unorthodox solution—move in and raise their baby together—Kiersten has to decide whether to let down her guard and open her heart to the man who secretly loved her for years, or risk losing his tender embrace for good.

    PLAY ME cocktails

    I thought it would be fun, for a change, to search and hunt down the perfect cocktails for my characters from my latest book, Play Me (Take a Chance #3) with Entangled Publishing.

    I did extensive, extensive research for this, and after drinking lots of different blends (I know, I know, it’s a tough job!), I think I finally narrowed it down to the perfect selection. Without further ado, I present to you the official Play Me cocktails, courtesy of

    The Garrett- Garrett is tough, loyal, and above all, loving. I had a hard time coming up with a great blend for him, but here he is:

    The Old Fashioned

    2 oz bourbon whiskey

    2 dashes bitters

    1 splash water

    1 tsp sugar

    1 maraschino cherry

    1 orange wedge

     Mix sugar, water and angostura bitters in an old-fashioned glass. Drop in a cherry and an orange wedge. Muddle into a paste using a muddler or the back end of a spoon. Pour in bourbon, fill with ice cubes, and stir. Read more: Old Fashioned recipe

    The Kiersten- Kiersten is scared to love anyone, but she’s also got a bit of a reckless streak in her. So for her, I chose:

    Watermelon Martini:

    1/2 ozfresh lemon juice

    1 oz melon liqueur

    1 oz citrus vodka

    1 1/2 ozfresh watermelon juice

     Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint, and serve. Read more: Watermelon Martini recipe

    Drink up, and enjoy Play Me while you do so. 😉

    About the Author & Links:

    Diane Alberts has always been a dreamer with a vivid imagination, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she put her pen where her brain was, and became a published author. Since receiving her first contract offer, she has yet to stop writing. Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, a schnauzer mutt, a cat, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another.

    She is a multi-published, bestselling author with Entangled Publishing, Swoon Romance, and Decadent Publishing. She has, as of this date, four books with Entangled Publishing, one book with Swoon Romance, and five older books with Decadent Publishing. Her February release with Entangled Publishing, ON ONE CONDITION, hit #18 on the Barnes and Noble Bestseller List, and TRY ME hit #76 on Amazon. Her Swoon Romance novella, CAPTIVATED BY YOU, hit #31 on the Barnes and Noble bestseller list. Her goal is to write so many fantastic books that even a non-romance book fan will know her name.

    She also writes New Adult books under the name Jen McLaughlin. Diane is represented by Louise Fury from the L. Perkins Agency.
