Contest Marilyn's Romance Reviews

November contest at Marilyn's Romance Reviews

Annie West who writes for Mills and Boon and Harlequin Presents is forever talking about these cookies. Recently while visiting Vancouver, BC I came across some and went crazing buying them. You could have heard me squealing all over the store at my find. I brought a package home to share with those of you who read this blog.


Tim Tams are chocolate biscuits made by Arnott's Biscuits, Australia. A Tim Tam is composed of two layers of chocolate malted biscuit, separated by a light chocolate cream filling, and coated in a thin layer of textured chocolate.

According to Arnott's, around 35 million packs are sold each year – nearly 400 million biscuits, an average of approximately 1.7 packs per Australian.

To go with your cookies, I'm also offering Heat Wave based on the television show Castle which I believe is shown world wide now. I love this series and Castle and Beckett have hot chemistry.

Product Description

A New York real estate tycoon plunges to his death on a Manhattan sidewalk. A trophy wife with a past survives a narrow escape from a brazen attack. Mobsters and moguls with no shortage of reasons to kill trot out their alibis. And then, in the suffocating grip of a record heat wave, comes another shocking murder and a sharp turn in a tense journey into the dirty little secrets of the wealthy. Secrets that prove to be fatal. Secrets that lay hidden in the dark until one NYPD detective shines a light.

Mystery sensation Richard Castle, blockbuster author of the wildly best-selling Derrick Storm novels, introduces his newest character, NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat. Tough, sexy, professional, Nikki Heat carries a passion for justice as she leads one of New York City's top homicide squads. She's hit with an unexpected challenge when the commissioner assigns superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook to ride along with her to research an article on New York's Finest. PulitzerPrize-winning Rook is as much a handful as he is handsome. His wise-cracking and meddling aren't her only problems. As she works to unravel the secrets of the murdered real estate tycoon, she must also confront the spark between them. The one called heat.

About the Author

Richard Castle is the author of numerous bestsellers, including the critically acclaimed Derrick Storm series. His first novel, In a Hail of Bullets, published while he was still in college, received the Nom DePlume Society's prestigious Tom Straw Award for Mystery Literature. Castle currently lives in Manhattan with his daughter and mother, both of whom infuse his life with humor and inspiration.

Jane Porter - She's Gone Country

Thanks to Jane's publisher, I have five, yes five copies to giveaway of She's Gone Country.

This contest is open to USA and Canadian residents only. To win a copy I want you to help me get the buzz out. For everything you do to help get the word out, you'll receive additional chances to win a copy of the book.

Post this contest on your website, blog, Facebook or Twitter. Come back here and post the link and your email. This contest will end September 30, 2010. Please don't forget to post your email so that I can contact you!

Book Description:

Shey Darcy, a 39-year-old former top model for Vogue and Sports Illustrated led a charmed life in New York City with a handsome photographer husband until the day he announced he'd fallen in love with someone else. Left to pick up the pieces of her once happy world, Shey decides to move back home to Texas with her three teenage sons. Life on the family ranch, however, brings with it a whole new host of dramas starting with differences of opinion with her staunch Southern Baptist mother, her rugged but overprotective brothers, and daily battles with her three sons who are also struggling to find themselves. Add to the mix Shey's ex-crush, Dane Kelly, a national bullriding champ and she's got her hands full. It doesn't take long before Shey realizes that in order to reinvent herself, she must let go of an uncertain future and a broken past, to find happiness--and maybe love--in the present.

Meet Jane Porter:

Born in Visalia, California, I'm a small town girl at heart. I love central California's golden foothills, oak trees, and the miles of farmland. In my mind, there's nothing sweeter in the world than the heady fragrance of orange blossoms on a sultry summer night.

As a little girl I spent hours on my bed, staring out the window, dreaming of far off places, fearless knights, and happy-ever-after endings. In my imagination I was never the geeky bookworm with the thick coke-bottle glasses, but a princess, a magical fairy, a Joan-of-Arc crusader.

My parents fed my imagination by taking our family to Europe for a year when I was thirteen. The year away changed me (I wasn't a geek for once!) and overseas I discovered a huge and wonderful world with different cultures and customs. I loved everything about Europe, but felt especially passionate about Italy and those gorgeous Italian men (no wonder my very first Presents was Italian).

I confess, after that incredible year in Europe, the travel bug bit, and bit hard. I spent much of my high school and college years abroad, studying in South Africa, Japan and Ireland. South Africa remains a country of my heart, the people, the land and politics complex and heart-wrenching.

After my years of traveling and studying I had to settle down and earn a living. With my Bachelors degree from UCLA in American Studies, a program that combines American literature and American history, I've worked in sales and marketing, as well as a director of a non-profit foundation. Later I earned my Masters in Writing from the University of San Francisco and taught jr. high and high school English.

I now live in rugged Seattle, Washington with my three young sons. I never mind a rainy day, either, because that's when I sit at my desk and write stories about far-away places, fascinating people, and most importantly of all, love. I like a story with a happy ending. We all do.

More chances to win, follow Jane's Facebook page or Jane on Twitter and comments and/or comment on her blog. Don't forget to post your links for your additional chances.

Jane is a personal favorite of mine. I love her Harlequin Presents and her women's fiction. My favorite women's fiction and her first was The Frog Prince. It was such an emotional read for me and I could identify with the story.

July Contest Thanks to Harlequin Ambassadors

(5) copies of a Love Inspired A McKaslin Homecoming by Jillian Hart. to giveaway!


When contacted by her long-lost grandmother, Lauren McKaslin wanted to reconnect—with all the warmhearted Montana McKaslin’s. For too long, she'd relied solely on herself and her faith. But mistrustful lawman Caleb Stone stood in the way, and his questions about her were intimidating. Was his attention more than a protective instinct? Now that she believed in family again, perhaps this was also the time to believe in true love….

RomCon tote bag signed by 60+ authors and filled with goodies

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting many readers at RomCon, a conference for romance readers. Now I’d like to announce a Members Only contest to win a tote bag filled with RomCon goodies.

The tote bag itself is quite a prize, signed by more than 60 authors including me, Julia Quinn, Jo Beverly, Brenda Novak, Lori Foster, Carly Phillips, and lots more. Plus, it’s filled with pins, bookmarks, notepads, a T-shirt, and of course, lots of books. All you have to do to enter is join my free Members Only area!

(I marked my signature with one of my brand new cloisonné pins with the Fool’s Gold logo.)

With apologies to my international readers, this contest is open to Members with a U.S. zip code only. Which means that my U.S. readers should check your Preferences and to make sure that I have your zip code in my system. The reason I ask for it is so I can email you when I’m doing a book signing within 100 miles of you (and you won’t be bothered with emails when I’m doing a signing on the other side of the country). If your zip code isn’t in my system, you can’t win this terrific prize!

The winner will be selected and notified in one week, on July 21.

I'd also like to thank my readers for rushing out to buy ALMOST PERFECT! I’ve been thrilled with the response to Fool’s Gold. Check in with the Fool’s Gold website from time to time between books for updates on what’s happening in the characters’ lives. In the latest news story, Josh and Charity have set a wedding date… and you can even sign their guestbook! (And read what the people of Fool’s Gold said when they signed the guestbook. I think it’ll make you smile.)
read. laugh. love.

Julie Miller Book GiveAway Contest features the Taylor Clan

2010 marks the 10th anniversary of Julie Miller's Taylor Clan/Precinct books for Harlequin Intrigue. To celebrate that landmark event, she's giving away a book a month on her website throughout the year.

Leading up to the December 2010 release of her 41st book, MAN WITH THE MUSCLE, featuring the next generation of Taylor Clan hero, she'll be giving away a signed copy of one of her original Taylor Clan books each month. To enter, go to her website at, read a short excerpt from the book of the month and email her with the answer to an easy question from the excerpt. The directions are all on the Contests & Fun page of her website.

July's book, IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, features one of the most popular of her Taylor law enforcement brothers, CSI Mac Taylor (yes, written long before the CSI:NY tv series came into existence!). When Mac is blinded in a lab explosion, and framed for the murder of a colleague he tried to save, he has no ally to turn to except the members of his own family--and the tomboy next door who has grown up into a smart, bossy, irresistibly sexy nurse. Julia Dalton has long had a crush on Mac Taylor, her hero next door, but knew the brainy scientist who'd once saved her from an assault could never see her in a romantic way. Now Mac needs her help, physically, emotionally, and to simply survive and solve the case. But going on the run from the bad guys--and the police!--with Mac may be more than this vulnerable plain Jane's heart can take. And now that Mac is blind? He's seeing Jules in a whole new light. Can he keep them alive along enough to prove his innocence--and prove to her that his love is real?

Free Giveaway Contest

What would you do? Would you drop everything and take a chance?

Sexy, handsome Dave is wary and jaded about women. He likes his life in the beautiful Bahamas where his romantic encounters are fast and fleeting. Gorgeous Kristy catches his eye but refuses to play by those rules. In fact she has studiously avoided men like him! David is intrigued by her resistance and so relentless in his pursuit, that much to her astonishment, Kristy finds herself agreeing to go out with him.

They end up having a sensational first date, but then it all turns to shambles. Could it be that David isn’t everything he appears to be? Could it be that Kristy isn’t everything David assumes her to be? Read Wrapped in a Rainbow to find out!

Brimming with luscious descriptions of Nassau and Paradise Island Wrapped in a Rainbow (Published by Club Lighthouse Publishing) is only $3.19 in Amazon’s Kindle store and is also available in paperback!


(5 Five star reviews)

Kori A. Gaff

This review is from: Wrapped in a Rainbow (Paperback)
Wrapped in a Rainbow is great summer reading/beach book. I think at some point everyone has felt the way Kristy feels at the beginning of the book. You go through her range of emotions with her. Though there are a couple of different times where Kristy reacted much differently (and better) than I would have. Delyse describes the places in the book with such detail that you almost feel like your right there on the beaches of Bahama's too. I also really loved that there wasn't a what happened next when the story was over. I really hate being left hanging when a book ends and it isn't part of a series, this book ties up the loose ends. If your looking for a light, fun read then Wrapped in a Rainbow is the book for you.

Book Lover
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wrapped In A Rainbow (Kindle Edition)
This story starts out in the beautiful city of Montreal,Quebec and then moves on to the incredible Caribbean. The main character Kristy is lovely but unaffected, likeable, and easy to identify with. David is not only good-looking but also possesses good character traits.I always enjoy a story where the two main characters don't fall in love with each other immediately and this one delivers just that. There are plenty of misconceptions and obstacles in their path to love.
We get to have a glimpse of what it's like in the Bahamas.The descriptions of scenery are vivid and the food sounds so delicious you could almost taste it!
This book is a light-hearted enjoyable read for anyone


Author Delyse Rodrigues-Trink currently lives with her family in Ontario, Canada. She has been writing since her high school days where she enjoyed twisting the suggested titles for compositions by teachers into something unexpected. She admits to being a bookworm, and in the summer she can’t wait to finish work and chores so that she can daydream and relax with a cool drink and a good book on the back deck. Her favourite genre to read is romance and she has always wanted to write one of her own. Wrapped in a Rainbow is that accomplishment. She is currently working on a mystery novel and also has plans to write a romantic suspense novel.


Delyse will be giving away three (3) copies in e-book format of her novel Wrapped in a Rainbow. The winners will be randomly selected from all entries.

The contest is open for one week (June 29th, to July 6th, 2010)

To enter you must send an email to
and answer the following question:

What is the name of the female friend that Kristy goes to the Bahamas with?

Good luck to all who enter and if you don't win it's still a great buy!

You might find the answer in my June Latest News or on the publisher's website. The contest closes 31st July, 2010, and I'll draw the winner soon after that. As always, I won't share contact details but I will email you when I have a new book coming out. One entry per person please.

Full description for The Mammoth Book of Regency Romance

From some of the biggest names in Regency historical romance, this title includes 25 wickedly witty, lusciously romantic and sublimely sensual short stories. Stories replete with oversexed aristocrats, posturing courtesans and feuding dukes and duchesses tell of a beautiful lady awakened by a passion more powerful than anything she has ever known, one that could doom or save her; a disgraced rake who, given a final chance to redeem himself, discovers love has rules of its own; and, a luscious young beauty fed up with proper tea parties and elegant balls who disguises herself to enjoy a soiree of uninhibited pleasure. As the passion mounts, so do the complications...This title includes big name contributors such as Anna Campbell, Lorraine Heath, Barbara Metzger, Deborah Raleigh and Elizabeth Boyle.

Donna Alward's June Contest

This month's contest is for my newsletter subscribers! I have in my hands GORGEOUS copies of Mediterranean Men & Marriage (it really is very pretty!) and I'm giving a copy away. You'll get Hired: The Italian's Bride but you'll also get The Italian's Forgotten Baby by Raye Morgan and The Sicilian's Bride by Carol Grace! One of the copies was slightly damaged and it was a great excuse to keep one of my own to read - I'm reading Raye's right now!

If you haven't signed up for my newsletter, use the box above. I promise not to inundate your inbox with a lot of mail. Once you've signed up, I'll forward you the latest newsletter with details for entering.
