Lynn Raye Harris: Two Times the Fun!

Hey, y’all!  I’ve got two releases coming in the next couple of days and I’m so excited for them both.  First up, tomorrow (though you may find it live sometime today on Amazon and B&N) sees the release of a 33K word novella in my Hostile Operations Team series.  HOT MESS is basically about a girl who fell in love with her big brother’s best friend.  But of course that best friend wasn’t interested in her at all and she had to worship him from afar.

Now, however, she’s all grown up and in trouble—and the best friend, a member of an elite military special operations team, is the only one who can keep her safe.

English professor Dr. Georgeanne Hayes has a problem. Her star pupil, an Army sergeant who works in a Top Secret government program, is missing—and someone tried to push her in front of a train last night.
Sam “Knight Rider” McKnight is used to looking out for Georgie. When they were kids, she was just his best friend’s baby sister. But Georgie’s not a baby anymore and Sam is getting some very male—and very dirty—thoughts about the girl he knows he can never have.
When someone threatens Georgie’s life again, Sam will do anything necessary to keep her safe. Even if it means spending the next few days locked up in a remote house on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with her.
Sam might be used to denying himself what he wants, but he’s about to find out that being cooped up with Georgie will push him to the limit. And maybe beyond.

Sounds fun, right?  The best part of all is that this story is introductory priced for only .99!!  You can learn all about the Hostile Operations Team gang, aka H.O.T., in this spicy novella – and then you can move on to HOT PURSUIT, the first full-length book in the series.

My next release is a Harlequin Presents!  You can find A FAÇADE TO SHATTER right now in stores, but the ebook will be available for purchase on October 1st.  This story is Book 6 in the Sicily’s Corretti Dynasty series.

Dismissed & Discarded: can he deny the forgotten Corretti?
Zach Scott wakes from nightmares to the echo of gunfire. So when he stirs from a trance and finds himself not in his fighter jet but at a party, pressed up against the soft, womanly figure of Lia Corretti, he quickly rages against her sweet pity.
For years the forgotten Corretti has hidden her pain behind a façade. So Lia recognises the shadows in Zach’s eyes. But there’s nothing familiar about the hot heat of Zach as he traps her to him. Can she lower her guard long enough to let him see all of her?

What Harlequin fails to tell you in this little summary is that Lia Corretti is a sweet virginal girl who’s been ignored and sheltered by her family – when she spends two wild nights with Zach Scott, she doesn’t expect to come away with a more permanent souvenir of their time together.  When Lia realizes she’d pregnant, she leaves Sicily to find Zach and inform him about his impending fatherhood – and that’s when the sparks fly!

Zach isn’t prepared to be a dad.  He’s still trying to get over the effects of the war and he’s in no shape to be responsible for a wife and child.  But of course he has to man up and protect Lia and the baby from the fury of her conservative Sicilian family.  In the end, Lia might just be what he needs to dig himself out of the chaos of the past.

Two stories, very different on the surface, but at their core they both contain characters trying to find themselves.  Sam and Zach need to realize some hard truths about themselves.  Georgie and Lia are strong and fearless when it comes to the way they feel about their men. 

I love that I have two different stories for you right now!  They may seem very different on the surface, but down at their core they are very much alike with heroes who are afraid to accept the love that’s staring them in the face.  Because giving in to that love is frightening, especially when you think you aren’t really worthy of it.  But these heroines will show them a thing or two before it’s all over!

Today, I’ll give away an ebook of HOT MESS via Smashwords and a $15 Amazon, B&N, or Kobo gift card to one commenter.  Just tell me what your favorite kind of hero is.  Billionaire or HOT military guy?  Or does it matter?  If he’s dark and broody and sexy, do you really care whether he owns a private jet or if he can single-handedly rescue you from the bad guys?

Doesn't really matter, but if I really had my "druthers," it would be a military man for me!

Gotta say I love me a military man it's just something about the fact that out of everything you can do in life they decide to serve their country. What more can you ask for.

Linda Henderson said...

I like military and law enforcement heroes and actually any strong broody alpha who can protect his lady.

Anonymous said...

Lynn, your newest books look great! I've already got Hot Mess on my to-read. My favorite kind of hero is any alpha, but I prefer the ones in charge. I like CEOs and Sheriffs. Yum. :)

It doesn't matter. Dark, broody and sexy hero sounds wonderful no matter what line of work or bank balance.

While a hot military billionaire has it's merits, I'll just go with a hot, broody, sexy guy with a sense of humor and is willing to save my booty if need :) Thanks for sharing and congrats on the new release!

I love a Hot Navy Man..that's why I married one!!

Mary Preston said...

I love them all. Just give me a great story with characters to love. He doesn't have to be some unreal, perfect specimen of manhood.

Laurie G said...

I like strong, alpha heroes who don't think they need a woman in their life and then Bam! they find a woman they can't live without.
I like intelligent, compassionate, physically fit men who even though they may do violent jobs they aren't normally violent towards others.

Karen H said...

I love them all, but I have a weakness for hot military types. I guess that's because I just finished an Army Wives viewathon! There were some pretty hot guys in that program!

Hi Lynn,
No, it does not matter to me if the book is well written. And, I would like the military guy as I know he would protect me. I love romance books, preferably contemporary, intense or comedy, I am good.
Thank you,

Having a heck of a time getting on here to comment, so trying something new! Thanks so much for all your comments! I've been reading even if I couldn't comment. :)

now you have published on here you should be able to do the reply by reply :)

Cathy P said...

It doesn't matter to me. I love them all as long as they have an HEA.

Lory Lee said...

Though it doesn't matter to me, I like Billionaire's. It's like, they can control anything, but when paired with a headstrong heroine, think again. I like it when he can have everything, but will have a hard time dealing with the love of his life. :)

Just wondering if a winner was ever drawn for Ms. Harris' giveaway.
