Book Giveaway: SOMETHING ABOUT YOU by Julie James

Blurb: FATE HAS THROWN TWO SWORN ENEMIES. . . Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends in bloodshed. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and nearly ruining his career… . . .INTO EACH OTHER’S ARMS Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it’s no joke: the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension…   Interested in SOMETHING ABOUT YOU? If so, then tell us about your weekend plans and I'll

Q&A with Kat Martin--with a book giveaway!!!

Give a big welcome to New York Times bestselling author, Kat Martin. RULE'S BRIDE - Out May 2010 After their strategic “marriage of commerce” three years ago, Rule quite forgot about Violet Griffin, the teenage heiress to a Boston manufacturing fortune. He simply spoke his vows, took over her father’s business and returned to England to resume his usual pursuits: high-priced wine, high-stakes gambling and high-born women.

Violet, however, is not so easily led: she has her own ideas and is seeking an annulment to marry another. But as Rule attempts to win her over, someone else is determined to frame him for murder and keep him out of the way for good….

Spotlight Review: Love, Unexpectedly by Susan Fox

LOVE, UNEXPECTEDLY – Susan Fox Wild Ride to Love, Book 2 Kensington Brava ISBN: 978-0-7582-3826-9 April 2010 Erotic Contemporary Romance Canada – Present Day Kat Fallon has no luck with men, as she goes from one romance to another. Her constant friendship with her neighbor, Naveen Bharani, has been one she’s relied on after each failed affair and that friendship is one she has no intention of changing. Nav is almost like a brother, and why ruin a perfect relationship by dating each other? With her sister’s upcoming nuptials in Vancouver, Kat plans to board the train for the long trip there. Once on board, her eye is caught by a handsome, successful looking man who looks almost like Nav. But, impossible, since Nav is a laidback photographer and certainly doesn’t display any signs of being well off. To her surprise, it is Nav, who’s conducted an elaborate plan to catch Kat’s eye—and heart—by pretending to be someone else. Nav has always been attracted to Kat, but she has resis

THE CHIEF by Monica McCarty Out now! Blurb: The ultimate Highland warlord and a swordsman without equal, Tor MacLeod has no intention of being drawn into Scotland’s war. Dedicated to his clan, the fiercely independent chief answers to no one—especially not his alluring new bride, bartered to him in a bid to secure his agreement to command the deadliest fighting force the world has ever seen. The treacherous chit who made her way to his bed may have won his hand, but she will never claim his heart. Although her husband’s reputation is as fierce as his manner, Christina Fraser believes something softer hides beneath his brutal shell. But the only warmth she feels is in their bed, in the glorious moments of white-hot desire that disappear with the dawn. When Christina’s reckless bid to win her husband’s love goes awry and thrusts them into danger on the eve of war against England, Tor will face his ultimate battle: to save his wife and open his heart—before it’s too late.

Guest Blogger: Tracy Wolff (with a giveaway)

The “edgy and erotic” (Shannon McKenna, New York Times bestselling author of Tasting Fear) author of Tie Me Down and Full Exposure offers another steamy novel of sex, lies, and sultry games.

When he learns his alluring neighbor is the one writing the sizzling blog that keeps him up all night, he can’t resist offering to fulfill her fantasies in the flesh. But Byron isn’t the only man provoked by Lacey’s writing. Now Lacey doesn’t know who she can trust-and who she can dare to tease. I love games—all kinds of games.
