Release Blitz: Rival Radio

Title: Rival Radio
Author: Kathryn Nolan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 20, 2022


These two on-air enemies can’t stop rubbing each other the wrong way in the booth…and the right way in bed.

Theo
Whoever said “keep your enemies close” never had to share a small, dark sound booth with her. Daria Stone is the infuriating host of “Choosing Yourself.” The name is almost as ridiculous as the concept. Permanently single? Please. The woman’s made a career out of rejecting everything I stand for.
I’m looking for the one. The right woman who’s ready for marriage and a lifetime together. Not some sultry, stubborn vixen who makes my life a living hell and insists a husband can be replaced by a curated collection of bedroom toys. And I know she’s wearing those skin-tight leather pants just to annoy me.

Daria
Dr. Theo Chadwick is a professional pain in my…workplace. Sure—on the outside, the man is gorgeous. But he’s also obsessed with finding his better half and getting his radio show, “True Romance,” syndicated so he can give false hope to lovelorn listeners everywhere.
He keeps pushing my buttons with his arrogant “expertise” about how wrong I am. I just want to see him snap. Maybe that’s how I ended up here, pinned against a wall with my legs wrapped around his waist…whoops…
Can these enemies put their feud on hold and play nice in a shared timeslot to save their popular beach town radio station? Or will their sparks burn everything to the ground?

Author’s Note: One-click if you love forced proximity, breakroom bickering, “we’re just getting it out of our system” one-night stands, a rag-tag crew of DJs, and beachy, retro boardwalk magic.






Theo: You’re listening to K-SUN FM, radio for the people. And it is a gorgeous Friday here in Sunrise Beach. I’m your host….what, may I ask, are you looking at?

Daria: Me? Nothing. Nothing at all. Just sharing the airwaves with my favorite coworker. The one who never annoys me by being a smug jerk with a stick up his —

Theo: Oh, yes please, do entertain our listeners with your creative insults, Daria. It will only make people respect our new show more.

Daria: I think the listeners like it. I think the listeners agree with me that you, Dr. Theodore Chadwick, need to loosen up a little. Have some fun. Go wild. When was the last time you got laid?

Theo: None of your business. And that’s also not the only way a person can go wild. Long walks on the beach. A candle-lit dinner just for two. A romantic ride on the —

Daria *muttering*: You are so fucking boring it’s insufferable.

Theo: The fact that you find romantic gestures to be ‘boring’ and ‘insufferable’ shows me that whoever risked your wrath in the past to bring you a bouquet of flowers was doing it all wrong. Maybe you just need someone to do it right.

Daria: Oh, and that person would be you, I’m guessing?
Theo *smirks*: Please, Daria, I spend way too many hours of my life with you in this damn sound booth. Taking you on a date is my idea of a waking nightmare, yet I’m wondering why you’d jump to that conclusion. You weren’t…asking me on a date, were you?

Daria: Is the sky purple? Have frogs started falling from clouds? Has a portal from Hell suddenly opened up and —

Theo: Why I thought I could ask a simple…listen, just tell them why we’re here? Please?

Daria:…our book comes out in seven days. Friday, May 20th. Be there or, uh…miss out on whatever shitshow is happening between me and the good doctor over there, currently gripping his microphone like he’s about to break it in half.

Theo: You are….very frustrating to me. As you, the listeners, our entire staff and all of Sunrise Beach is aware of now.

Daria: Such a gentleman. Oh, look, here come the frogs now.





Kathryn Nolan is an adventurous hippie chick and loves to write steamy romance. Her books are filled with slow-burn sexual tension, memorable characters, tons of heart — and are often set in wild and beautiful locations.

Kathryn started her writing career in elementary school, writing about Star Wars and Harry Potter and inventing love stories in her many journals. She blames her obsession with slow-burn on her similar obsession for The X-Files.

Kathryn is a wanderer at heart, and loves to spend her free time hiking, camping, and traveling in her camper van (“Van Morrison”) with her cute, nerdy husband and Walter, their rescue pup. Kathryn is a Philly girl who just moved back home after spending more than 8 years living in Northern California — and six months traveling across the country in her camper van.
