Loving Your Lies by Piper Shelly ~Tour Stop~

New Adult / Paranormal Romance
Date Published: January 2013

He’s annoyingly gorgeous, provocative, and fast becoming her best friend. But he also has a secret that makes the little hairs on her arms stand on end...
It wasn't nicking an expensive watch or diamond bracelet that landed streetwise Jona Montiniere in the clutches of the police. It was a darn sweater. A judge decides that she has to return to her terminally ill mother, that god-awful dragon, who dumped her in an orphanage more than twelve years ago. Worse, for the coming six weeks, she has to do charity work on a strange aunt’s vineyards in France.
Yeah, right. Jona is determined to sneak off at the first chance she gets. But then she meets Julian, the dragon’s caretaker. Playful, understanding, and sinfully sexy, he’s everything she dreams of—but she’d be damned if she let him know and break through her stonewall of protection. And then he awakens her mother from the dead with a simple touch…
When the first week in her new home is over, Jona is asking herself two things. One, how could it happen that she ended up in Julian’s arms after only three days? And two, how the hell do you keep an angel earthbound?

Loved it...Loved it...Loved it...Oh did I mention...I LOVED IT!!!
At first I didn't really know how excactly the paranormal effect would be dealt with. However, after being engrossed in the story the whole thing went beyond what I was hoping for.
Jona is  a prideful, snotty, mouthy brat to start but as the story progresses, she, I think truly grows on you. We know she totally grew on Julian.
Julian is an AWESOME character...OMG! I will gladly accept him(when I'm waaaaaay older). He is something to believe in and damn if the ending hadn't gone the way it did...oooooo I'd be steaming right now.
The story on a whole is down right touching. The characters are very well thought through and amazing. 
I don't think anyone wouldn't want an Aunt and Uncle quite like Jona was given.
Now for Jona's mom,well, her character is one of a person in regret and amends. She was rather moving.
And I think that everyone should have a Quinn.
I would definitely read this over again in a heartbeat....just to relive all the wondrous moment. The feeling of heartache....of love...of forgiveness.

Author Bio

Hi, I’m Piper. I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun. 
I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. Ugh, that was hard. I hated the city. Everything about it. So I moved back to Upper Austria right after graduation. There are trees now in front of my window instead of just another ugly gray building, and I love to be woken by the singing of birds every morning. One of my favorite movies? Snow White. The dwarves’ house would be one epic place to live.
At seventeen, I met the love of my life, but he was a playboy, and though he was also the inspiration for many of my teen romances, I didn’t make it easy for him to get me. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that “couple-thing” with him a shot. I’m now married to this man ;-) It’s cool if you can say: I tamed Casanova. What I’m currently reading? The Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy.
We have a ten-year-old son, and together we travel a lot…although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can’t wait to get back to my laptop and my many stories. Unless we’re in Disneyland. No stress to go home then. ;-)
So, you see, I’m leading a pretty normal life.
Of course, it’ll all change the day my books follow the act of Harry Potter, and I’ll become richer than the Queen. I swear I’ll never again clean my windows myself then. Yeah, one day… LOL
