The Reality of One Kiss by Lisa Fox

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I am so excited to be here today talking about my new release, ONE KISS from Harper Impulse. One of the best moments of my entire life was when it won the Winter Wonderland Competition and found the perfect home.

Though One Kiss is fiction, it is based in the very real city of New York, mostly in Brooklyn. I am fortunate enough to be able to get back there once or twice a year to visit friends and family, do a little shopping, and eat. When I was writing Kat and Dean’s story, I wanted to really see the settings I spoke of and know them as well as they did. I wanted to clearly picture the storefronts and concrete, smell the Caribbean food and coffee as Dean stormed down Flatbush Avenue. I wanted to look out the triple bay windows of Kat’s brownstone and feel her excitement as she waited for her cab to arrive. Therefore, I cheated a little bit and choose some actual, real-life locations for the landmarks in their world.

I thought that you’d like to see them too—a taste of the real scenes behind the scenes—so while I was home, I took some pictures. I think I was mostly drunk all the time (No judging! It was the holidays!) which is why they are all somewhat crooked. Having a glass of wine with this post is highly recommended for better viewing capabilities.

One Kiss Lisa Fox

Sometimes one kiss can change everything.

New Year’s Eve is supposed to be a night for celebration and new beginnings. For best friends Kat and Dean, it is a nightmare filled with disastrous dates and enraged ex-girlfriends!

Lucky for them, they’ve got each other to help laugh off the embarrassing, and downright inappropriate, moments. But then midnight rolls around and neither of them have anyone to kiss…

There’s no doubt this is a night they will always remember.

The real question is whether it will be a night they want to forget…

World-renowned neurosurgeon, master chef, secret member of American royalty, seducer of legions of beautiful, outrageously sexy angels and demons and vampires and werewolves and the occasional pirate, Lisa Fox has done it all… in her own mind. In reality, she can generally be found at her desk with a cup of coffee close at hand. Or maybe a martini. It really depends on the day.

  11. Thanks for the tour, Lisa. Setting can be like a character on its own, so it’s fun to see the pictures. Congrats on the win, the book sounds great!

    • Thanks Carolyn! I thought it would be fun to see what I envisioned when I was writing out the scenes – an inside perspective. I hope you’re having a fantastic new year.
