1st PLACE
Truly Madly Whiskey (A sexy stand-alone contemporary romance) 
by Melissa Foster 


Emotionally riveting, sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Watch mysteriously sexy Bear Whiskey claw his way to his happily ever after with sassy, rebellious Crystal Moon.

In TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY…
Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm’s length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She’s a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey’s midnight fantasies. She’s also one of his closest friends.

Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his.

The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there’s no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotionally charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew about themselves.

2nd PLACE
Whisper of Love (Love in Bloom: The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor) 
by Melissa Foster

Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

WHISPER OF LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

In Read, Write, Love at Seaside…
Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he’s come to finish his latest thriller — that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt’s best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt’s as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn’t even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna’s come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can’t get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she’s just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

Hurricane in Paradise (Paradise Series) 
by Deborah Brown

Set against the steamy backdrop of Tarpon Cove’s sun-kissed, tropical waters, sexy sleuths and best friends Madison and Fab are at it again dealing with the occasional dead body. Hidden just below the surface of the small town lies an underworld, one steeped in deceit, corruption, and deadly secrets. It’s only a matter of time before Madison and Fab find themselves on a collision course with the police, who consider them likely suspects in a murder.
Ride along on their adventures when the duo realizes that a family member is missing and pull themselves away from all jobs to track him down. Theories: walked away, freak accident, kidnapped? If so, then why no ransom demand?
Hurricane in Paradise is book ten in the thrilling and humorous provocative Paradise series, which finds the two waist-deep in mystery and romance. It is a smart, adventurous read that delivers heart-thumping, non-stop action. Join Madison and Fab as they solve the most twisted of cases, through unconventional ¬– and highly entertaining – measures… sometimes in flip-flops.
The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they’re like chips…you won’t be able to devour just one!”

Joint 4th PLACE
Just Three Dates 
by David Burnett

When their mothers become matchmakers, entangling them in a series of dates with each other, Karen and Mark must each decide whether to entertain the idea of a “marriage of convenience,” or to hold out for an increasingly unlikely marriage based on love. 

 

Since breaking with her last boyfriend, Karen has refused to trust any man her age. For the past three years, she has not dated the same one twice, and only one in ten has received even a goodnight kiss as she turned him away. Karen is an artist. She follows her feelings, lives in a cluttered loft, and gushes over vivid sunsets.
Mark still dreams about his almost-fiancée, and his date book has been empty since he threw her out a week before he’d planned to ask for her hand. His friends call him the “Ice Man,” since he seldom smiles, especially at a woman. A math professor at the College, logic guides his behavior, he loves order, and an elegant proof is a thing of beauty.
Both Karen and Mark have all but abandoned hope of ever falling in love, and, left on their own, these opposites would never attract. So, their mothers become matchmakers, entangling them in a series of dates by extracting promises that Karen and Mark will go out together three times, suggesting that, in the absence of love, a “marriage of convenience” is a live option.
If you enjoy heartwarming stories based on true-to-life behaviors, with complicated relationships and a less-than-certain outcome, this book is for you.

But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the window, and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song—and maybe even the rest of his life.

He’s honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile—but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle—only the battle she thinks he’s waging isn’t the one that threatens to tear them apart.

With my heart and reputation in ruins, I can’t afford to

stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone.
But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t
see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean
after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me.
And the only man I want.
The only man I’ll do anything for, even if it means breaking
the promise I made to myself when I fled my old life in shame.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for a married man, but I did.

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon by Julia Kent #SalesBlitz @givemebooksblog @jkentauthor

 

 

Title: Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon
Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #11
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 31, 2017

 

Blurb
He is addicted to his phone and his new role as CEO. I’m addicted to
getting some on my own honeymoon.One of these things is not like the other.

I am pretty sure a serial killer’s lair is the only place in the world where I
could stash my new husband so he can’t manage the acquisition of our new
company.

And that seems a little drastic.

But only a little…

All I want is one week alone with him. Hours in bed, legs tangled together in
ecstasy, room service and long walks on the beach in Hawaii.

Not vying for his kisses around a Bluetooth microphone. The Borg aren’t sexy in
real life.

So I’m taking matters into my own hands and hitting “reboot” on our honeymoon.

We’re going to a place so remote that no one can find us.

Not even my mother.

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon is now a full-length book of 150+ pages,
with both Shannon and Declan’s points of view. Originally published with only
Shannon’s viewpoint, this expanded edition is a result of reader feedback.
People wanted to know what Declan was up to – so here you go. This book is
meant to be read after Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife and/or Shopping for a
CEO’s Fiancée, but if you read it out of order (or even as a standalone),
that’s fine. Shannon and Declan forgive you. 😉 An audiobook version of this
story is also available, featuring Zachary Webber as Declan and Tanya Eby as
Shannon.

Claiming His Mountain Bride by Madison Faye #ReleaseBlitz @givemebooksblog and @MadisonFayeSmut

 

Title: Claiming His Mountain Bride
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 15, 2018

 

Blurb
My mountain. My cabin. My woman – she
just doesn’t know it yet.

I left civilization
and my demons a long time ago, seeking solitude up on Blackthorn mountain. Just
one ex-marine, a remote cabin, and the wilderness, with no distractions.

But then she turns
up, blowing in with a winter’s blizzard like a very fucking big distraction.
Blonde, beautiful,
and mouthy as all hell, even when I save her from freezing that sweet little
ass off.
A rough mountain man
like me should want nothing to do with a rich little city girl like Katrina.
Except one look at her sweet, tempting curves, and one taste of those sassy,
pouty lips, and I want everything to do with her.
I saved her from
freezing, but maybe it’s her who’s going to save my frozen
heart.
We’re trapped up
here for the storm, locked in a cabin with only the heat between us to keep us
warm. Her wealthy, city family thinks they can marry her off to some rich
little shit. But they’re very wrong.
My mountain. My
cabin. My woman.
I’ll make Katrina my
bride, and I’ll be damned if I let them take her from me.
