How to live longer in three Easy Steps.

3 Easy Steps to living longer


It’s easy! Even a baby elephant can do it.


(Just make him get out of the water first, or your Kindle will be ruined.

Generally speaking you probably shouldn’t share your Kindle with baby elephants.

These books are two/thirds of a three book series following our tiny heroine’s effort to find love.

Carrie 20

Carrie, while very smart in business, is making a ton of mistakes in her personal life.

Mistake 1) She escapes a typhoon and returns from a long, unpleasant business trip in Taiwan. In retrospect, it would have been better had she stayed put. Instead she entered the

Worst Week Ever_1600x2400

Mistake 2) If a person is determined to fall in love during a week-long disaster extravaganza, then seriously, they should pick better stock material than Trent

Who has time to improve Trent when people keep trying to kill her, police want to arrest her, and a bad pimp boss wants to run off with her. At times like this, you need a ready to behave boyfriend, not Mr. Hyde…no wait, that should be ‘Master Hyde’ for Trent. (He demands his servants address him as ‘master’.)

No, it’s not some gothic historical, these are humorous contemporary disaster romances.

Trent Lancaster is a self absorbed billionaire, and her boss. The only thing likable about the fellow is his money, which she has no interest in spending. Due to Carrie’s patience, endurance, and need to be loved, they soon develop a common ground to work from.

Common Things 1

Upon surviving the ‘God really doesn’t like you’ week….we move on to the next phase of their relationship: ‘Let’s try and make our employees less God Awful.’

Carrie convinces him they need to hire a human resource expert before they attempt to fire most of their staff. (Trent wants to fire them all in one glorious fell swoop.)

Of all the 20,961,002 people in the NY Metropolitan area, why, oh why, did the resource agency send Trent’s ex-fiancé to be their human resource expert? Coco clearly has one objective in mind: become Mrs. Trent Lancaster, get rid of Carrie, and destroy his business.

I know. That sounds like three objectives, but she would never bother to get rid of Carrie or destroy the business if she hadn’t decided Trent was her best shot to get married. Thus the latter two are strategic moves to gain her single objective.

So Carrie get’s promoted from EA to change specialist. (If you don’t know what a change specialist is, do not feel ashamed. Carrie didn’t know until she Googled it, and Trent didn’t even after he Googled it.

I Googled it too, and basically it says she’s in charge of everything until the company and it’s people change.

Oops, I’ve run out of crayons.

So to live longer you’ll need to read the series. I would recommend you begin with book 1. Eighty percent of my reviewers (out of 47 reviews) think the book is hilarious, laugh-out-loud, craziness. The other 20% don’t think it’s funny or a romance.

Clearly they didn’t understand when I called it a ‘disaster romance’ I meant it was a disaster of a romance.

Assuming you don’t rupture your spleen while reading it, (in which case I apologize for misleading you into thinking it would make you live longer), then move on to Book 2. While not as hysterical as book one, it comes much closer to being a proper romance where you actually like the guy the heroine is in love with.

Book three won’t be out until mid Jan-early Feb 2014, but I’ll warn you now, things blow up big time, so enjoy Trent while you can.

Oh Stupid Heart_bookcover

Carrie Hanson is in love with a different species: Trent, a pampered, uber-rich socialite who’s also her boss. Everyone keeps telling her it’s a train wreck looking to happen, but her heart wants what it wants. So despite the billion and one reasons not to, Carrie commits to this inter-species relationship. But while she’s off being trained for her new job responsibilities, a beautiful ex- fiancée is working hard to get Trent back and Carrie fired.

  6. Liz, I love your sense of humor. It reminds me of mine. Shared and tweeted.

    I love you Liza…you make me laugh! 🙂

    I don’t read many contemporary romances…my Kindle is simply bulging at the seams (or should I say sides) with oodles of Historical Romances I MUST read. However, I love your zany humour and I am putting your books on my must-have list right now!

    • lizaoconnor says:

      Would you read a humorous late Victorian Mystery with a sleuth and his assistant (who turns out to be a woman who would rather have an interesting life than be a Victorian woman). They banter, argue, get outraged and solve crimes…plus fall in love. Kind of like Victor/Victoria meet Sherlock Holmes. Because I have a 7 book series I’m thinking about publishing.

      • lizaoconnor says:

        Oh, and I love you too, Carol ❤
        You get my humor. How can I now?

      • carolcork says:

        Most definitely, Liza! I’m British and so I appreciate a zany sense of humour! I love Sherlock Holmes and the Victor/Victoria movie and so the premise of your proposed series sounds perfect.

      • lizaoconnor says:

        All right, then that’s the next book I’ll publish. (After Ghost Lover and the end of this series Coming to Reason). Should come out around mid year 2014 I think. It’s my fav series.
