Title: Anthony

Series: Risking Love

Author: Callie Carmen

Message to Readers: It feels like the Risking Love women are friends of mine. I hope you feel the same after reading about each of their love stories.


Tessa seemed to have it all, her father’s fortune, men falling at her feet, and a fairly new but successful business. Secretly, all she longed for was her mother’s hug once more, her heartbroken widowed father acknowledging her existence, and the love of Tony. Recently divorced, from a selfish, demanding ex-wife, Tony Telesco wanted nothing to do with a rich, spoiled, daddy’s girl like Tessa. Would she be able to convince him that she was not as she seemed?


Naughty girl gone good.





Callie started in the book business as a bookstore manager which was the perfect place for her since she was an avid reader. After two years, she moved to the corporate office as a buyer and eventually became a senior book buyer. This was a rewarding career that she loved. Along the way, Callie became a stay home Mom but couldn’t give up working around books altogether. She volunteered to run the book fairs in her small farm town, six per year. At the same time, Callie started and ran, A Child Oasis Company, with the sole purpose of placing a small book library in the homes of all the needy children in the nearby city. As her children became teens, Callie found she needed more in her personal life than the volunteer Mom for the schools. She sat down at the computer one day and Patrick, book one of the Risking Love series, was born. Since then she has completed and published with BVS, Book two, Nicolas, Book three Joseph, Book four Anthony and Book five Joshua. Her story Dream Catcher, was published by Black Velvet Seductions as part of the Mystic Desire Anthology. Callie also has a mobster romance, The Enemy I Know in the Craving Loyalty Anthology. Amazon link: She is in the process of writing and editing Book six Michael and a cowboy romance for the Cowboy Desire Anthology coming out from BVS in winter 2021. Callie is married to her soul mate and best friend. Like her characters, she is a firm believer in true love and love at first sight.

    Great blog Virginia, thank you. I love all the stories in the risking love series, but I have a soft spot for this book. And a agree Tessa is a very likable character. A lovely story Callie.

    Thank you, Brit. I had no idea that you had the Risking Love books. My writing improved with each book. So I think each one gets better and better. At least I hope so.
