Giveaway: So Close...

We're so close! To so many things. Close to the Romance Writers of America national conference in a week (come see me at the Lit Signing,) close to the release of Too Hot to Touch on August 2nd, and...close to hitting 1,000 fans on my Facebook fan page

I wanted to celebrate these almost-milestones with a giveaway...and I've got the perfect gift for my readers. Books! All you have to do is post a comment to this blog that answers this question: 

If you were trapped on a deserted island and had only one book with you, what book would you want it to be?

I'm going to randomly choose three winners from the answers below. Each lucky winner will get one of the books below, plus a full set of my Rising Star Chef romance trading cards and a chapter excerpt booklet that contains the first THREE full chapters of Too Hot to Touch!

The other prizes are:

Face of Danger by Roxanne St. Claire

Blurb: Private investigator Vivi Angelino loves living life on the edge, but stepping into the shoes of a movie starlet to bait a serial killer isn't just a thrill . . . it's a ticket to the big time for her fledgling security firm. That is, as long as a certain risk-averse FBI agent stays out of her way-and out of her fantasies.

Assistant Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang isn't above using his well-worn rulebook to stop Vivi's latest walk on the wild side. But when they learn her client is involved in something far more insidious than bad acting, Vivi and Colt must work together despite the electrifying attraction arcing between them. For each new clue is bringing them closer to a high-profile crime with a dark and deadly truth at its core . . . and a cold, calculating murderer with nothing left to lose.

Already Home by Susan Mallery (Autographed trade paperback!)

Blurb: After nearly a decade as a sous-chef in a trendy eatery, Jenna is desperate for a change. She's supported her ex-husband's dreams for so long that she can't even remember her own. Until she sees a for-lease sign near her parents' home and envisions her very own cooking store.
Her crash course in business is aided by a streetwise store manager and Jenna's adoptive mother. But just as she's gaining a foothold in her new life, in walk her birth parents—aging hippies on a quest to reconnect with their firstborn.
Now Jenna must figure out how to reconcile the free-spirited Serenity and Tom with her traditional parents, deal with her feelings for a new love interest and decide what to do about her ex's latest outrageous request. In the end, Jenna will find that there is no perfect family, only the people we love….

Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs (Autographed hardcover!)
Blurb: Tempest Maguire wants nothing more than to surf the killer waves near her California home; continue her steady relationship with her boyfriend, Mark; and take care of her brothers and surfer dad. But Tempest is half mermaid, and as her seventeenth birthday approaches, she will have to decide whether to remain on land or give herself to the ocean like her mother. The pull of the water becomes as insistent as her attraction to Kai, a gorgeous surfer whose uncanny abilities hint at an otherworldly identity as well. And when Tempest does finally give in to the water's temptation and enters a fantastical underwater world, she finds that a larger destiny awaits her-and that the entire ocean's future hangs in the balance.

If you're not already a fan of my Facebook page, please consider going over there and clicking 'Like'! It's not a requirement to enter the contest, but it would make me happy.  : )
And apologies to my international readers, but due to contest regulations in other countries, this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.


Sorry. Nuh uh. No can do just one. Can't Stand the Heat (my favorite, so far in the series) and Some Like It Scot by Donna Kauffman. I love the brooding Scots, too. These two books just epitomize the great, lovable hero.

I'm dying to get my hands on those trading cards!

I hate picking one book (can I bring my Nook? I'm sure there's a power outlet somewhere!)... but I'd probably have to stick with Ain't She Sweet - Susan Elizabth Phillips. It always makes my day and it's one of those endless re-read books for me.

Have a great time at RWA!

Water for Elephants would have to be my choice.

Tough to pick just one book but my choice would be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

My Kindle goes everywhere with me, so I'd never be caught without a substantial book list :)

But if I really had to pick just one, it'd be Julie Garwood's Ransom. 'Twas my first romance back in middle school, and I can't keep track of how many times I've read it. I could probably act out the entire novel in my sleep. [If anyone wants to volunteer to be my hot, taciturn Scottish laird, let me know ;-)]

However, if I were stranded on a deserted island, I'd be soaking up the sun and trying to jury-rig a scuba setup so I could go diving. I've been to tropical islands; they're always surrounded by nice coral reefs and legend underwater fauna :)

Ack. You ask for the impossible! :( If I really had to pick one, I'd take...something by Lynn Kurland. That's about as narrow as I can get, lol. D:

Not an easy answer and I guess taking my Nook doesn't count so....if I have to pick just one it would be Mackenzie's Mountain by Linda Howard. It will forever be at the top of my very very favorite books, I just love the story!

I love my books but, if I just had to choose one: Prides Mate by Jennifer Ashley.

Picking one already out there would be nearly impossible.. It'd be my luck to pick one in a series and never get to find out how it all ends. How about a BLANK book. Write your own story as you go!

What a great question. The Bible? No, too many begats. The OED? Too boring? Complete Works of Shakespeare? No, too Shakespeare-ish. So now it's down to either The Nerd Who Loved Me by Vicki Lewis Thompson or Tourist Season by Carl Hiaasen. I'm going to have to go with Vicki's book as the one and only book I'd have.

Lord of the Flies

just one book? that's impossible~!! I want my e-readers~~
Hope you have a wonderful time at RWA!

My favorite of yours is On the Steamy Side (hellloooo, Devon Sparks!). But if yours "don't count", then I'd take Barbara O'Neal's The Lost Recipe for Happiness. Lord, that book makes me happy!

Thank you to everyone who's chosen one of my books!! I love you guys. And my books definitely "count", but they don't give you extra points. Sorry!, all the way...

I honestly have no idea if I have to close one. I never go without at least four to five books a week. I think I'd go insane with only one. Can I at least bring one with the entire series wrapped in one, like Susan mallory's sheik series. Lol.

How can I choose only one Louisa?

However, if I have to choose only one, Too Hot To Touch, because you've been teasing me forever with this book!!

This is a very tough question. I guess it'd be a Lisa Kleypas book, but narrowing it down is so HARD. Um... I'm going with Tempt Me at Twilight. I've re-read several times now and still love it.


It would have to be my book that all of Jane Austen's books compiled into one book

My choice would have to be an old one, Shanna by Kathleen Woodwiss. For a couple of reasons. It was the book that started me reading historical romances, my aunt bought it for me and she is no longer here so it would always remind me of her and because it was a wonderful story.

Umm...ONE book?!? Seriously? Just one? How about this - the Bible and one fiction book? Still, incredibly tough decision. Probably would have to go with Suzanne Brockmann's Over the Edge. But then there's....
Just too many to choose from!

Looking forward to seeing you at the RWA signing.

That is a hard one! And just ONE???

How about The Glass Book of the Dream Eaters by Gordon Dahlquist. It's big and strange and steampunky good. :)

I couldn't pick one if I had too...can I just bring my eReader?...oh no wait my favorite series and a lot of my favorite authors' books are in hardback or paperback....hmmmm.....if I had to pick one I think I'd let someone put me outta my misery hehe

I started to say one of Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters Series - probably Breaking the Rules from this Spring, but, alas, I'm gonna have to go with The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. :)

I would choose Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. I could read that book over and over again.

Just one??? Is that even possible? I would have to go with the one that i just finished reading and it was great and different from other would be Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros

That's a hard one. I'd go with The Secret by Julie Garwood. That's the one that got me hooked.

Just one, are you kidding me. It would probably be DG Outlander.

My reads are like Hershey Kisses.Can't have just one and leave them alone.Ok so I have my books and my chocolate and a handsome tall scottish in a kilt with a big sword and a southern drawl ;P I am ready to go!!!
I got to have someone to carry my books and I AM SOO READY TO GO TO THIS ISLAND!!!

Have a great summer yall!!!


Not happy about only being able ot choose one but it's probably be Parlor Games which is a 3 in 1. I've re-read it more than any other book. Little bit of regency romance, and a little bit of scottish romance. Therefore I wouldn't have to choose between the two!

Thank you for the giveaway!

Dang you want me to pick ONLY ONE??? Hmmm okay one book let me think...........Probably Voyager in the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon just cause I've only read it once but i really liked it and would love to find time to read it again!!

Just one book? That's so cruel....If I can only chose one, I would have to say Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. I love Riley and Mercy :)

Gena Showalter would have to be stranded with me ..then I would have her read all her books to me from memory...:)

Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie. I never get tired of reading it!

Only one book? WHY??? why would you do that.....

Can I just have my kindle? *BIG GRIN*

okay fine...
I think I would have to pick Lover Mine by JR Ward... just love John Matthew & Xhex....

Thanks for a chance to win,
Kelly M

I would pick Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Loved that book.

I have been reading books for so long it is almost impossible to pick just one book but I will have to say Sandra Brown "Exclusive" will always be a huge favorite. Its the first time I ventured from just straight simple romance into mystery and intrigue and I LOVED it!!!

I would have to bring my Nook Color it has so many of my favorite books, but the problem would be when my battery runs out. That would be a big problem. So I would probably bring All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks. It is my favorite book from her Love At Stake series. Or I would bring A Promise Given by Samantha James. It's an oldie but I love it!
