Antioch, California (PressExposure) January 28, 2008 -- Join debut author LaConnie Taylor-Jones on her first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotion Public Relations as she travels the blogosphere in February to talk about her contemporary romance novel, âWhen Iâm With Youâ. This is the story of Marcel Baptiste, a wealthy entrepreneur and philanthropist, who meets Caitlyn Thompson, the head of a struggling youth center, when she appeals to his philanthropic foundation for funding. Marcel is smitten and begins wooing her, but she is a hard sell: she has relocated to Oakland after being beaten and raped by Cole, her controlling ex, and is very gun-shy when it comes to men. As Marcel falls more deeply under her spell, he decides that merely loving her isnât enough: he must also help her vanquish the ghosts of her past.
A reviewer for Multi-cultural Romance Writers says âWhen Iâm With Youâ is, âA wonderful way to spend the dayâ¦â and Romance in Color called it, ââ¦a quick and enjoyable readâ¦â
