👋 Helloooo swoon squad! Welcome to Season 2 of WHILE YOU WERE READING: a podcast for contemporary romance readers.
I’m your host, best-selling rom-com author Lisa Daily — and every week, I'm bringing you the best contemporary romance novels of 2023. Today on While You Were Reading, we’ll be talking with the incredible Lyra Parish, about her brand new small town, second chance romance, SPILL THE SWEET TEA.

Lyra Parish is a hopeless romantic who enjoys creating characters who eventually find love. She likes to write Texas small-town romances (because she’s a fifth-generation Texan) along with action-packed romantic suspense. When she isn’t immersed in fictional worlds, you can find her on YouTube chatting about her self-publishing journey (The Courtney Project) or podcasting (Spread Those Pages) about romance books. Lyra is a Virgo who loves coffee, the great outdoors, authentic people, and living her best life with her hubby. You may or may not know her from when she co-wrote under the USA Today Bestselling pen name Kennedy Fox.

📖 About SPILL THE SWEET TEA by Lyra Parish

Some describe me as a quirky, free-spirited journalist who charges her crystals by moonlight.
They’re not wrong.

My instincts ensure I know everything that goes on in my small town. And not much surprises me. But when the man who destroyed my heart returns to care for his family’s business, I’m shaken to the core.

After our messy breakup, Hayden Shaw swore he’d never come back to Valentine, Texas.
Years later, I’m still trying to forget we ever existed.
Damn near impossible when he’s now everywhere.
A constant reminder of what could have been.

Rumors swirl about his true intentions, but a little gossip has never bothered me.
However, if winning over my heart is his end game, he can hang up his spurs because I won’t make the same mistake twice—or will I?

Warning: this romance book contains tons of southern sass, lots of woo-woo, and small-town gossip! Fade to black and cheating are not included.

Spill the Sweet Tea is a second chance, hate-to-love you, grumpy/sunshine contemporary small-town southern romance with rom-com vibes and a happily ever after.

📖 About The Cutting Edge: A steamy hockey romantic comedy by Lisa Daily

A laugh-out-loud hockey romantic comedy perfect for fans of Helena Hunting and Pippa Grant!

Logan Rivers is a star pro hockey player for the St. Pete Slashers -- and he's in a slump.

He hasn’t scored in 3 games and it’s starting to freak him out. Enter Coco, who strikes a deal with an assistant coach to be Logan's lucky charm to pay off her training expenses as an Olympic figure skater. Everything is looking up for both of them.

She’s almost got her debt paid off and the Slashers are on a winning streak. There's only one problem: she doesn’t know how to tell Logan she’s been lying to him the whole time.

If she can just keep her secret until the playoffs are over…
