Slow Dancing on Price's Pier, Spring 2011

Slow Dancing explores the tangle of life in a Newport, RI, coffee shop–when one woman is given a second chance at love (but only if she sacrifices the peace of her family).

Some early reviews:

“Slow Dancing on Prices Pier is a charming and wise tale of second chances and forgiveness, peopled with characters as full-bodied as the coffee Thea brews. I loved it!” —Author Karen White, The Memory of Water

“Smart, imaginative and steeped in heartfelt emotion, Slow Dancing on Price’s Pier is hard to put down until the very end! —Author Jane Porter, Flirting With Forty

International Contest - Lucy Monroe and Her Traditional Greek Men

Lucy Monroe is one of my favorite romance authors.  I just happen to have these two books I would like to offer for an International Contest, ending February 28th.  Please leave your email address, follow this blog, follow Lucy on Facebook or her blog.  Winner will be announced March 1st.  Did I mention these books are both authographed?

What I loved about these two connected books were the strong, handsome, rich and tortured two Greek heroes who met in the streets of Athens and were like brothers. 

At an early age, they boarded a freighter and ended up in my hometown of Seattle, Washington.  They built a business together and lived in the same penthouse.


Untouched — and bought for $100,000!

Thrust into the limelight, child star Cassandra timidly enchanted audiences night after night...But when her parents died, Cass retreated into her own world — too shy to leave her home. Once a year she shares her musical passion by offering lessons in a charity auction... This year, money talks...the winning bid: $100,000!

Enter: Neo Stamos, arrogant Greek tycoon.

He wants Cass with a burning desire, though he knows that, shy and sweet, she will need a gentle awakening... But Neo’s the master of seduction!



No-strings wedding ring?

Self-made billionaire Zephyr Nikos has come a long way from the streets of Athens, but his heart is stone-cold — like marble. He can’t offer Piper Madison his love; instead he offers her his world: fine dining, private jet, rubbing shoulders with the rich and powerful...

As their desire heats up and finally reaches boiling point, Zephyr and Piper must end their affair before one of them gets hurt. There’s just one small complication...Piper’s pregnancy test just came back positive!

Bloggiesta Ole Event - Mark Your Calendar

I've never entered a blog challenge before; this is a first for me.  I have three other blogs.....a review blog, an author blog where I try to get the buzz out, and my "sheikh genre" blog for those romance authors who write "Sheikh" books.

From January 21 through the 23rd, I'll be posting to those three blogs and offering giveaways.  I hope you'll join me there, post comments and leave your email for a chance to win a prize. 

Winners will be announced January 24th.  Don't forget to leave your email address so I can let the winners know if they've won.  Winners will have 48 hours to respond, other wise another winner will be chosen.

As of this hour, over 200 book bloggers are blogging and I'm sure offering giveaways as well.
