Blog Tour!!! Wed by Wednesday-- Sarah O'Rourke!!!

If y'all have ever wondered about Jethro and Orla, or just how our two favorite seniors came about- then this book is just what you've been looking for! After getting a good hearty dose of these two in all of the Passion in Paradise books, we all just knew that they had to have some kind of amazing story themselves. I mean, after all, Orla is just as rearing to go for her man in her seventies, as she ever has been!!

When I saw that the duo was planning on writing this story, I'm pretty sure that I squealed in delight, because any Passion stories that I can get my hands on are like gold!! These are some of the best books that I've ever read, and they're what brought Sarah O'Rourke onto my radar in the first place, then firmly cemented them in my all time top authors. They are phenomenal!! Hot alpha men, and strong independent women- everything I love in a book.

I had no idea that when I dove into this one that Orla was going to be nothing like the feisty woman that we all know and love now. Instead, she was a shy, innocent and sweetly naïve young woman, who had never been around the likes of someone like Jethro McKinnon. Just like Orla, Jethro of the present isn't the same as the Jethro of the past. The younger version is a much more gruff and rough mountain man, that isn't afraid to speak his mind, loudly and crudely to anyone around. Our senior Jethro seems to be a gentler, softer man than he once was- probably after the years of continued patience that it took him to live with Orla!!

Whatever the reason that these two have grown, changed, and developed their characters over the years, it has made them into the loving strong couple that we have all grown to wish to have in our own families. The love that they share has only blossomed into the generations that they have helped to raise, and they are truly a couple that everyone can learn from, as they show us all what is a great foundation to an everlasting marriage. Live. Laugh. Love.

Wed by Wednesday

By Sarah O’Rourke


Wed by Wednesday

What happens when a naive city girl answers a personal ad to marry a bachelor farmer from the hills of Tennessee? Destiny! Read how Orla and Jethro's story started back in the 1960s...and find out exactly how deliciously naughty these two can be!   This insta-love 50,000-word novel is filled with humor, romance, and just enough erotica to keep you coming back for more.  Wed by Wednesday is the prequel to Sarah O’Rourke’s Paradise series, and like all of her books, it can be read as a standalone.

“Listen, chaste kisses are fine for what they are. Quick exchanges of affection. An innocent way to tell somebody they mean something. When you wanna show a woman that she’s what’s lighting the fire in your gut, though… quick and innocent pecks just don’t do the trick. Nah, a man goes dark and dirty for that kind of lesson. He wants his woman wet and hot. And he wants her that way everywhere. Her mouth. Her core. Everywhere.”

Jethro’s lips kicked up in a sly half-smile at her sudden movement.  It was like he knew he was getting to her and he enjoyed that knowledge immensely.  “There’s no way you’re not from the city.  Nashville or Knoxville, maybe,” he murmured, before shaking his head.  “Nah, I’m bettin’ you came in from Atlanta.”

“How…how did you know that?” Orla stuttered, her eyebrows furrowing with consternation.  Just what she needed in her life - an intelligent jackass.

“That fancy hair.  Your pretty dress.  Those shiny shoes that, if you look, you can see your reflection lookin’ back.  And those heels of yours aren’t scuffed, so you’ve been riding, not walking.  Your clothes are too wrinkled to be from Nashville or Knoxville, so you’re just rumpled enough to have gotten off the bus from Atlanta,” he surmised, with a know-it-all grin as her cheeks reddened with embarrassment.  “Oh, yeah!  You’re city bred from the top of your head to the tip of your toes.  And a fussy little lady like you ain’t gonna find what she’s lookin’ for in Paradise.”

“Actually, son…” Jethro’s mother began to hedge, biting her lip as she turned to look up into her son’s face.  “She has found just what she’s been missing.”

Biting her lip, Orla winced as Jethro frowned at his step mother.  The woman, however, didn’t look overly worried about her son’s imminent reaction and she wondered if things would work out alright after all.

Jethro frowned.  “Mother McKinnon, we don’t have time for…”

“Oh, just rip the bandage off, Lydia,” Nellie ordered, interrupting Jethro as she bustled over to where they all stood together.  “Jethro, meet your future wife,” the waitress decreed, flapping a hand at where Orla stood, nose to chest with him.  “Take a minute and let this settle in your bones, boy.  Your much beloved step-momma done went and ordered you up a bride for hire.”
