Worth the Risk Blog Tour: Guest Post by Robin Bielman + GIVEAWAY!

Posted on 05/25/2012 in Blog Tour, Giveaway / 20 Comments

Hey guys! I’ll be on vacation from 5/20-5/27 so comment approvals and responses will be on “Beach Time!”


  Please help me welcome Robin Bielman, author of the novel, Worth the Risk, to The Bawdy Book Blog today!  

About Robin Bielman Robin Bielman lives in Southern California, a bike ride away from the ocean if she’s feeling really adventurous. She loves books and baking and running on the treadmill while watching her favorite TV shows. When she’s not reading or writing her next story, she’s spending time with her high school sweetheart husband and two sons, most likely watching, playing, or discussing baseball. She drives too fast, drinks too much caffeine, and if every day were Cupcake Day, she’d be a happy camper! She [also] loves to connect with readers.


Hi Jennifer! Thanks so much for having me here on The Bawdy Book Blog. I’m delighted to visit with you and your readers and be a guest blogger today.

In my debut novella, Worth the Risk, my hero Dean is a hotshot historic preservationist who works in the field of heritage protection. Not your average occupation, right? Dean is passionate about the environment and preserving history, and also loves adventure. River raft and hike a volcano in the same day? Hell, yeah. Bring along Samantha, the girl he’s never gotten over, the girl he’ll protect at all costs, the girl who makes him feel things, and it’s a perfect day.

Dean’s an outdoor junkie, a do-good humanitarian. A guy I hope readers will fall in love with. In fact, I think there are lots of good reasons to love historic preservationists.


Nine Reasons to Love Historic Preservationists


1. They push the boundaries. These guys don’t play if safe… anywhere. 2. They like to get dirty. (And I don’t just mean outdoors.) 3. Green is their favorite M&M candies color. 4. They look like a combination of Indiana Jones and Ryan Gosling. Or this guy:

5. They go where the action is. 6. Following along on their adventures could lead you to places you’ve only dreamed about. 7. They work well with their hands.

8. They have an appreciation for how things are built. 9. They like to do it in exotic locales.

So there you have it, my reasons to adore historic preservationists. I had so much fun writing Dean and Samantha’s story and exploring this fun occupation. By the way, Samantha also works in heritage protection, so just imagine how combustible these two are together. 😉

Their love was ancient history…until their paths crossed again.

Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he’s back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career–if he doesn’t steal her heart first. Samantha’s vowed to hate him, but it’s more than anger heating the competition between them. With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at love…is it worth the risk?

    Thanks for the great post and giveaway! I love the premise of this book! It’s definitely on the top of my wishlist 🙂 I’d go w/ my dear boyfriend to anywhere tropical. Warm, sandy beaches, my kindle, a fruity drink… a cabana boy to give me massages… Oh… hey honey! go entertain yourself! I’m… reading… lol… Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Hi Robin, I would love to just about anywhere with my guy. That’s my hubby Don. But I do love tropical places. I go where it’s warm and sunny. Beaches on the coast or Hawaii. But I also love to go cruising along the Pacific and Atlantic shores.

    • Hi Charlene! I love going just about anywhere with my hubby, too! He’s always up for adventure, which I adore! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you and Don get to take a tropical vacay sometime soon!

  3. Hi Robin. I loved the interview and your humor. I’ve read Worth the Risk and loved it, so don’t include me in the giveaway. But if I could go anywhere in the world it would be back to Paris. Alone, or with a cuite…it wouldn’t matter. : )

  4. Hi Robin! I loved the list and also loved your book. I especially liked how Sam worked to preserve historical Route 66. We musn’t let that wonderful highway go to ruin! Your characters were “green” but not fanatics. Fanatics always turn me off. So your struck a perfect balance. Yay.

  5. Hi Robin, I’ve got WTR on my TBR pile, screaming at me to finish the current book I’m reading. (I have to read faster!) I think I have to go with the tropical vacation. Give me the beach, a margarita and a good book… and my hubby to cuddle with as we watch the sunset over the water. Yeah… I’m good with that.

  6. Hi Robin! 🙂 Ooh, where would I travel? I would say some place tropical! Hawaii, maybe Fiji or Tahiti?! Thanks for the giveaway! You know I think this story sounds wonderfully yummy!
