This Week's Special Guest Author Tim Smith

Tim Smith is an award-winning bestselling author whose books range from romantic mystery/thrillers to contemporary erotic romance. He is also a freelance photographer. When he isn’t pursuing those two careers, he can be found in the Florida Keys, indulging in his passion for parasailing between research and seeking out the perfect Mojito.


If it’s the holiday season, it must mean it’s time for me to release another holiday romance. “Who Gets the Friends?” is now available through eXtasy books. This is a lighthearted romp with laughs and liberal doses of sex. What more could you hope to find under your Christmas tree?


Two lonely souls get a chance to make their Christmas wish come true.

 When Tom Harris won back his freedom after a bitter divorce, he looked forward to getting a fresh start in life. What he didn’t realize was that his former wife had taken their mutual friends as part of the settlement.

He feared that he’d be alone forever until he met Jessica Mays, who was recovering from the loss of her one true love.

Can these two broken souls find some common ground to make a relationship work? Will Tom discover that there really is life after divorce?


The story is loosely based on actual events from the life of yours truly. When I went through a divorce a number of years ago I made a shocking discovery – most of the mutual friends we had suddenly evaporated. Many of them stopped speaking to me and much like the protagonist in my story I had to start all over. Did I get my happy ending? Read the book to find out.


  1. Good morning, Tim! So glad to have you back at the Tiki Hut and super congrats on your new release!

    This is a prime example of what good can come from a bad situation. The new book sounds really good and I can wait to read it. It's great to get a man's POV in a romance. What do you think your being a man brings to the table?

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and holiday and here's wishing you many sales for your new book!

  2. I think my gender helps create a realistic romance. It's cliche to assume that guys are all about physical attraction because at some point, feelings get involved. I try to show that in all of my romances, that moment when the man is sitting at home alone and realizes he'd rather be with the special someone who captured his heart.
