Corralled giveaway!

My very good friend, Lorelei James, has a new release and to celebrate, I’m giving away a signed copy here on my blog!

Sports therapist Lainie Capshaw has been rehabilitating injured cowboys long enough to know that a charming western drawl combined with a fine physical form doesn’t mean you fall for the man.

So no one is more surprised than Lainie when she finds herself involved with not one, but two different men: Hank Lawson, a bullfighter, and Kyle Gilchrist, a bull rider. Lainie feels guilty about her two-timing, but it doesn’t keep her from doubling her fun-that is until Hank catches her with Kyle.

She’s shocked that Hank isn’t mad. But she’s more shocked to learn Hank and Kyle are hometown buddies. But when the men offer to share her-in every way-she knows that she’s going to have to choose the one man who can give her the ride of her life…

Okay if you’ve never tried Lorelei James, you’re missing out on some yummy goodness! To enter to win a signed copy of this book, just drop me a comment and tell me what coming soon release you’re really really looking forward to.

The Darkest Hour ARC Giveaway


It’s been one year since ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly last saw his wife Rachel alive. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt over his failures as a husband, Ethan shuts himself off from everything and everyone.

His brothers have tried to bring Ethan into the KGI fold, tried to break through the barriers he’s built around himself, but Ethan refuses to respond… until he receives anonymous information claiming Rachel is alive.

To save her, Ethan will have to dodge bullets, cross a jungle, and risk falling captive to a deadly drug cartel that threatens his own demise. And even if he succeeds, he’ll have to force Rachel to recover memories she can’t and doesn’t want to relive—the minute by minute terror of her darkest hour—for their love, and their lives, may depend on it.

The Darkest Hour kicks off my new action/adventure romantic suspense series that focuses on the Kelly family. I’m super excited about The Darkest Hour. I’ve waited a long time to tell Ethan and Rachel’s story. Right now there are plans for at least six books, and I hope to do more :)

Ali, a reader on the Writeminded Readers loop, asked for recommendations for books that involved a husband and a wife who for whatever reason were forced apart and the story focused on them coming back together. I always call them marriage in jeopardy stories and I LOVE them. It’s a particular favorite theme of mine. So tell me what you think of them? And if you’re so inclined, share some of your favorites! I’ll choose one winner at random from all the comments posted. The winner will be asked to provide their mailing address so I can ship the autographed ARC. I’ll leave entries open until this coming Sunday and I’ll post the winner Sunday night.

Good luck to everyone!

Monday giveaway!

ok so we’ve been looking at my new gorgeous covers *g* And I do love gorgeous covers. And it just so happens that in about a week, Jaci Burton has a new release that also has a really gorgeous cover! So I thought I’d give you guys a chance to win a beayoutiful book to pet, and covet and call George (or Georgette) whatever your preference :)

Bound, Branded, and Brazen

Bound by passion, branded by love, brazen enough to take it all…

In the wilds of Oklahoma, three sisters have a hot date with destiny. Valerie, Brea, and Jolene McMasters reunite on the family ranch that should have been called the Bar Nothing…


When Valerie left for the big city, she kissed her foreman husband, Mason, goodbye—along with the best sex she ever had. Now, seeing him brings back sizzling memories. But their rekindled fire threatens to burn them both.


Watching Gage wrangle untamed horses with a gentle but firm touch leaves Brea hot and bothered. But can she live out her fantasy with a man who may ask more than she’s willing to give?


Ranch hand Walker Morgan can’t afford to lose his job by getting too close to his new boss, Jolene, no matter how much she tempts him. But Jolene’s prepared to take the first step, because what Jolene wants, Jolene gets. And Jolene wants Walker.

Sounds yummy, no?

Now on to the good stuff!  I’m going to give away two copies, which you’ll receive as soon as Amazon will ship them to you :) To enter, tell me the  name of the last book you RE-READ. Now if you don’t ever ever reread a book (gasp!) I supposed you can get away with telling me what was the last book you read…


Giveaway #12: EMBRACE THE DARKNESS by Alexandra Ivy

Is He Her Mortal Enemy—

Lady Shay is the last of her kind. Half human, half Shalott, her blood is a precious aphrodisiac to vampires, who consider it more precious than gold. Though Shalotts are renowned assassins, a curse held over Shay lands her on the slave auction block, where her fate is uncertain…

Or The Man Who Will Risk All…

Viper, the beguiling chief of a deadly vampire clan, can’t explain his longing to possess the beautiful Shalott who once saved his life, but now he is free to do anything he wants with her. Strangely, while he desires both Shay’s blood and body, he wants her to surrender willingly.

To Save Her Life?

A hidden evil has been stalking Shay since she left the slave market with Viper. It is an evil that endangers the very existence of Viper’s kind, and there’s no reason he should court such danger just to protect a Shalott. But the love he feels for Shay is enough to make him willing to go to hell and back if it means spending an eternity with her in his arms….

This is the last of the giveaways. Giveaway winners will be announced once all the books have been posted. Leave a comment for the chance to win a signed copy of EMBRACE THE DARKNESS.

Giveaway #11: THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER by Angie Fox

Straight-laced preschool teacher, Lizzie Brown, never lies, never cusses, and doesn’t really care much for surprises. When her long lost Grandma Gertie shows up on her doorstep on a neon pink Harley Davidson wearing a “Kiss My Asphalt” t-shirt and hauling a carpet bag full of Smuckers jars filled with road kill magic, Lizzie doesn’t think her life could get any stranger. That is, until her hyper-active terrier starts talking and an ancient demon decides to kill her from his perch on the back of her toilet.

Lizzie learns she’s a demon slayer, fated to square off with the devil’s top minion in, oh about two weeks. Sadly, she’s untrained, unfit and under attack. Grandma’s gang of seventy-something biker witches promises to whip Lizzie into shape in no time, as long as she joins them out on the road. But Lizzie wants nothing to do with all this craziness. She simply wants her normal life back. When she accidentally botches the spell meant to protect her, she only has one choice – trust the utterly delicious but secretive man who claims to be her protector.

Dimitri Kallinikos has had enough. Cursed by a demon centuries ago, his formerly prominent clan has dwindled down to himself and his younger twin sisters, both of whom are now in the coma that precedes certain death. To break the curse, he must kill the demon behind it. Dimitri needs a slayer. At long last, he’s found Lizzie. But how do you talk a girl you’ve never met into going straight to Hell? Lie (and hope she forgives you). Dimitri decides to pass himself off as Lizzie’s fated protector in order to gain her trust and guide her towards this crucial mission. But will his choice to deceive her cost them their lives, or simply their hearts?

Giveaway #10: MIDNIGHT'S MASTER by Cynthia Eden

In this sexy, gripping novel, Cynthia Eden draws readers deeper into the realm of the Others—vampires, shifters, and sinfully attractive demons whose powers are matched only by their dark hungers. . .

Tall, dark, and formidable, Niol Lapen is the last demon on earth most people would ask for a favor, yet the sexy little reporter who wanders into his club dares to do exactly that. Holly Storm already knows too much about his kind, and Niol has no wish to help her get in deeper over her head. But working alongside her may be the only way to stop a killer, even as it ignites a primal desire unlike anything he’s known.

Holly has seen firsthand what Niol is capable of, but that doesn’t frighten her nearly as much as her body’s instinctive reaction to him, or the wild, fierce passion that would tempt her to follow him through hell itself. Something evil and relentless is prowling the streets of Atlanta. And as Holly’s search leads her into danger that even Niol could never have predicted, she’ll uncover a secret that could rip her world apart. . .

Giveaway winners will be announced once all the books have been posted. Leave a comment for the chance to win a signed copy of MIDNIGHT’S MASTER.
