I'm catching up on a lot of things I still have hanging fire from 2006 (like finishing my Christmas letter, which I just did last night!) , but I wanted to stop by and say hi and let everyone know that Kate Walker, Liz Fielding and I have put together a contest called "Here Come The Brides" that began January 1st to celebrate our three February books -- all of which have "Bride" in the title!
Kate's The Italian's Forced Bride, Harlequin Presents
"As long as I want you, you stay — and you only leave when I give you permission to go"
Alice spent six passionate months as Domenico's mistress. But she knew he would never love her back and would soon discard her — so she left him.But now Domenico wants her back in his bed, and his terms of possession are the same as before — until he makes a discovery that changes everything: Alice is carrying his child.
Liz's The Valentine Bride, Harlequin Romance
“Dammit, Louise,” he said, “you haven’t changed one bit –”
“Dammit, Max, neither have you!” She was on her feet, in his face. “You’re still the same arrogant, over-bearing, despotic, pig-headed idiot you always were!”
Working with Max was never going to be easy. There’s always been something between them – something they’ve done their best to ignore. Family loyalty wins, but Louise extorts a very personal price from Max for her co-operation and sparks fly from the start.
and my The Santorini Bride, Harlequin Presents
Theo Savas didn't need marriage. He'd been there, done that. And he wasn't about to do it again – not that it stopped nearly every single woman on the planet trying. Hitting the "world's sexiest" list didn't help either.
Theo wanted space. Maybe even a bit of celibacy. So he was furious when his Greek island hideaway was invaded by a sexy, enticing woman – especially one who claimed his home was hers!
At first Martha thought Theo was just what she needed.
Sizzling passion would surely make her forget what had brought her home. She never counted on falling for him – or conceiving his child. But when she did, Martha knew she couldn't turn to Theo. He was strictly a no-strings man.
To enter the contest, find the full names of each of the brides (check our blogs and website) and enter the contest on our websites. If you enter on all three sites you have three chances to win copies of each of these brand-new books!
The contest ends February 1st.
And be sure to check out our blogs during the month as once the grooms get wind of this contest, you never know what might happen!
Hope you all had a great holiday season. Did you get lots of new books? I did. I'm still working my way through them -- taking my time, actually, as I want to make them last. I've begun reading Kate's though, and I can hardly put it down. Domenico is a great hero!
Who are some of the best heroes you remember from books you've read?
