Meet Author Kelly Anne Blount

Hey, everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Before we get started, I’d like to take a moment to say, “THANK YOU,” to my good friend, Apryl Baker! I’m honored to be a part of this amazing event and I’m super excited to have the opportunity to meet new authors, participate in all of the fantastic giveaways, and hopefully introduce some new readers to my novels!

Now, before we get started with my New Adult Contemporary Romance novel, Impassioned, I thought we could play a little, “Get to Know Kelly Anne Blount,” game first. It’s called, “Two Truths and A Lie.” In this game, I’ll give you three statements. Two will be true and one will be a lie. Guess which ones are true and you win!


Round One
1)   I live on top of a mountain.
2)I once lived in a palace.
3)I grew up in Hollywood, CA.

Round Two
1)   My latest novel, Captured, has been read over eight million times on Wattpad.
2)I like to drink coffee while writing.
3)Last summer I hit the USA TODAY Bestseller’s list with my good buddy, Apryl Baker.

Round Three
1)   I only write romance novels.
2)I love all things Wattpad.
3)I try to respond to all fan messages, comments, emails, etc.


Round One – The two truths are that I do live on top of a mountain and I once lived in a palace (it was seriously epic and I included an artist’s sketch of it below)! The lie? I didn’t grow up in Hollywood, CA! J I grew up in Madison, WI!

Round Two – The two truths are that my latest novel, Captured, has been read over eight million times on Wattpad and last summer I hit the USA TODAY Bestseller’s list with my good buddy, Apryl Baker. The lie? I seriously dislike the taste of coffee and I certainly don’t like to drink it while writing.

Round Three – The two truths are that I LOVE all things Wattpad and that I try to respond to all fan messages, comments, emails, etc. If you haven’t checked out Wattpad yet, get on it! It’s an amazing website and app where you can read books for FREE! That’s right, it’s FREE and AWESOME! If you are signed up or plan to do so soon, come visit me (! Also, if you have a question for me or want to send some love, please stop by and drop me a tweet/comment/message, etc. on Twitter (, Facebook (, Wattpad, or my website (! The lie? I only write romance novels. In real life, I write New Adult Contemporary Romance, Young Adult/New Adult Crossover Horror, Young Adult Fantasy, and Young Adult/New Adult Crossover Fan Fiction.

YAY! That was fun! J Okay, now that you know a little bit more about me, I’d love to tell you all about Impassioned, my New Adult Contemporary Romance novel!

WARNING! This book is only for readers 18+ years of age!

I’m also going to go ahead and just throw this out there, if you’re looking for a clean romance novel with minimal hotness, you’re going to want to stop right here. Wait, first check out one of my young adult books first, and then stop! J For real though, Impassioned is about an eleven on a scale of one to ten for smexy (that’s smart plus sexy) characters and mega steamy scenes.

What Is Impassioned About?

Instead of just plopping the synopsis in right here, I thought I’d let my two main characters, Harper and Ethan, share what Impassioned is about in their own words.

In My Words – A Synopsis of Impassioned by Harper:

Impassioned is the true story of how I got over my ex, met the love of my life, and then, how my world changed in an instant.

We start out with my heart shattered into a million pieces by my ex-boyfriend, and when I say, “shattered,” I mean obliterated. I thought we were the perfect couple. I thought we were going to stay together forever. Boy of boy was I wrong.

After telling me we needed “time apart,” I wanted to curl up into a little ball and I really thought I would cry all summer long. Luckily, my best friend knew I needed to get out and get my ex off my mind. Agreeing to go out one fateful night out with the girls, I met him. I met Ethan Sawyer.

Talk about amazing first impressions. Smokin’ hot, polite, and he liked to dance? He couldn’t get any more attractive to me. It only took a few days and I can honestly say, I fell in love and I fell hard.

Now, this is totally going to make me blush, but the sex… OMG the sex! Hot doesn’t even begin to do it justice. It’s like our bodies were made for each other. I’ve never wanted somebody more then I wanted Ethan.

The rest of the summer flew by with Ethan by my side. We did everything together.  I loved him and he loved me.

Then, came time to say goodbye. I had an amazing internship set up long before I met Ethan. Even though it was out of state, it would only last a few months. I convinced myself that we would be fine… I convinced myself that I had met the man of my dreams… Then in an instant, everything changed.

Summer Love – A Synopsis of Impassioned by Ethan:

Impassioned is the true story of how I met the girl of my dreams and then screwed everything up.

Have you ever met someone that literally took your breath away? Have you ever met someone that made it feel like time was stopping around you and flying by all at the same time? For me, that someone was Harper.

I still remember the first time I laid eyes on her. I was out at a bar with a bunch of my friends, when in walks the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen. Blonde hair, eyes the color of the Caribbean Sea, and an athletic build, she was the girl of my dreams.

I’m not normally nervous around women, but Harper changed all of that. After gathering the courage to talk to her at the bar, she somehow manages to spill an entire glass of water on her shirt. She was totally mortified and wanted to go home. Somehow, I managed to convince her to stay. After talking to her for five minutes, I knew she was something special.

Now, as if her beauty and kindness weren’t enough, our chemistry between the sheets was off of the charts. The things we did were just unreal. Her tits, her ass, her everything was perfect. I felt like I was sleeping with a super model.

Then, she had to leave. Her internship was only a few months, but I couldn’t bear to think about her being so far away. I would have done anything to keep her there with me, but then, in an instant, everything changed.

(Book One in the Hard Love Series)

Impassioned Synopsis:

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual content.

Heartbroken and stuck on her ex, Harper never planned on falling for anyone new over the summer, but a chance meeting with Ethan Sawyer soon sends her heart spiraling…

Their connection is instant and intense.

Ethan seems perfect. That is, until the pressure of Harper’s impending internship allows her to see a very different side to Ethan.

Jealousy is never pretty and it can be dangerous.
