BLOG TOUR: Sinders And Ash by Tara Lain

Sinders and Ash
(The Pennymaker Tales Series)
by Tara Lain

Housekeeper Mark Sintorella (Sinders) works diligently at a resort hotel while designing clothes anonymously, hoping to get into fashion school. Then his carefully planned life is upended with the arrival of Ashford Armitage, son of the fifth richest man in America—and the most beautiful guy Mark has ever seen. Ash must find a wife or he’ll lose his grandfather’s inheritance, and he settles on Bitsy Fanderel. But secretly Ash is gay, and the guy who cleans the fireplaces sets his heart ablaze.

Further stirring the pot is the little elf of a man, Carstairs Pennymaker, who has Mark wearing his own designs and masquerading as a girl to impress the fashion investors in the hotel. When the clock strikes twelve, two beautiful princesses line up for the wedding—but one isn’t a woman. Will the slipper fit? Only Mr. Pennymaker knows for sure.

“No, sir. I have dinner for two. Do you want me to serve it now?”
“What did you bring?”
“Sole amandine, mashed potatoes, and broccoli, sir. As you requested.”
“Do you like those foods, Sinders?”He looked up, startled, maybe, at hearing his nickname. “Sorry, I know that’s not your name. What is it?”
“Uh, Mark Sintorella, sir.”
“So do you like sole and mashed potatoes and broccoli, Mark?”
“Yes, sir. The chef does an excellent job.”
“Good, then you’ll eat it with me.”
Those dark eyes seemed to consume his face. “No, sir.”
“Yes, and you’ll call me Ash while you’re doing it.”
“Sir.” He looked down and then back up at Ash. “It’s my job to serve the food, not to eat it.”
“It’s your job to make the guests happy.”
His eyes returned to his shoes. “I can’t imagine why eating with me would make you happy.”
Ash stood and crossed the room. “Sin—uh, Mark, I don’t want to play rich guest games with you. If you don’t want to have dinner with me, you certainly don’t have to.”
“Did Miss Fanderel cancel?” He still hadn’t looked up.
“No, I ordered this dinner because I wanted to see you and I wanted to eat it with you.”
That got his attention. His head snapped up and the amber-brown eyes widened. “Really?”
“Yes. I thought since we have shared a, shall we say, personal moment, that we might get to know each other.” He pointed to the table. “Since you’re supposed to be serving my dinner, no one is going to break in and disturb us. We can relax and talk. That is, if you want to.”
“I shouldn’t.”
“Oh, why?”

The kid wiped the top of one shoe against his pant leg in back. “I might like it.”
