Book Blitz & Giveaway: Golden Hour (Crescent City #1) by Campbell Reinhardt



Golden Hour (Crescent City #1)
by Campbell Reinhardt.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: March 23rd 2014 by Campbell Reinhardt.
In the medical field, the precious moments following a traumatic event in which you have the best chance of saving a life are known as the golden hour.

But being there during the golden hour doesn't mean you'll be able to save the one you love...

New Orleans native and ER nurse, Elise Dupuis knows that fact all too well. There was nothing she could do to save her fiancé, New Orleans police officer Mike Bazanac, when he was brought into her hospital with two fatal bullet wounds.

Now everyone walks around on eggshells when she comes into the room—except her brother Charlie. As Mike's partner, he bears a guilt that's spiraled him into dark pain. Charlie is lashing out, Elise is turning in, and life seems to be falling apart around them.

Caleb Warren knows what it feels like to always be on the losing end of things. A few criminal turns in his youth landed him two crap choices: mandatory service in the armed forces or jail. He chooses to enlist, and just when he finds a commander who has a little faith in him, their truck hits an IED. Caleb's training as a medic isn't enough to save the one person who's ever given a damn about him.

Now back in New Orleans as an EMT, Caleb is bound and determined to drown himself in booze and regrets. But he crosses paths with nurse Elise Dupuis and finds a woman whose passion and courage gets under his skin in a way that wakes him up and makes him want to live again.

Unfortunately, Charlie doesn't think the new EMT is good enough for his sister, and he’ll step outside the lines of the law to prove it to Elise.

Caleb has to figure out what's worth fighting for…and how far he's willing to go for the woman he loves



Elise’s JAMBALAYA

Makes 12 Servings
Note from Elise: This recipe was my Gran’s and it’s the only one we’ve made in our house as long as I can remember. The recipe card with her familiar handwriting is yellowed and the edges crinkled, but I keep it on my refrigerator so I can see it every day and remind myself how much she loved to give love through her cooking. It’s become one of Caleb’s favorites, too. He brings it up to the station, scoring points with all of the medics.
INGREDIENTS:
¼ C. oil
1 cooked chicken, cut up and de-boned
1 ¾ lbs. sausage
TRINITY:
2 heaping tsp. Cajun seasoning

1 tbsp. chopped garlic
4 C. long grain rice
2 ½ C. of Mama’s homemade stock

Season and brown the chicken in oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage to pot and sauté with chicken. Remove the chicken and sausage from pot, leaving the drippings in the pot.

Liz grew up on the East Coast, and Steph on the West Coast-and somehow they both ended up making their homes with their husbands and children in small, Southern towns. They've been co-writing since 2012 after they each read a book written by the other and contacted each other to gush.


Liz loves Raisinettes, even if they aren't really candy, the Oxford comma, movies that are hilarious or feature Zombies, any and all books, but especially romance (the smarter and hotter, the better), the sound of her daughter's incessantly wise and entertaining chatter, and watching her husband work on cars in the driveway.

Steph has one husband, four children, and a serious nail polish obsession. When she isn't reading, writing or wiping someone's nose, you can usually find her baking something.
