And boy do we have some romance novels for you. 🙂
Welcome to the kickoff blog post for the Romantic Reads Valentine’s Hop, filled with great authors giving away great prizes, including a chance to win a $50 gift card on February 14th.
That said, this blog post is about two romance novels and I promise you’ll see more throughout the Romantic Reads Valentine’s Hop.
The first romance novel…is mine! Deception of a Highlander is book 1 of my three book Scottish historical series. Below is the first official excerpt teaser. Enjoy!!
It was only a kiss, but he knew without a doubt the heat of her mouth against his would only serve to whet his desire further. He would not be able to still his hands from gliding over what was hidden from view, from pulling her against the parts of him she made ache.
With an incredible act of willpower, he straightened, released her and took a step back to address her from a safer distance lest he give in to temptation.
“If ye still want to come, meet me here tomorrow morning at nine o’clock, aye?”
He turned to leave when her hand on his forearm stopped him.
“Why did you not kiss me?” she asked.
Kieran studied her face and desire tugged at him once more. “Do ye always get what ye want, Mariel?”
Her eyes trailed the length of his body, her expression shrewd. “Only if I know how to get it.”
Deception of a Highlander is set to release on April 28, 2015 and is available for preorder on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1x5J12G
The second romance novel is your gift (potentially) – and it’s a good one.
The incredible and fabulous Valerie Bowman has offered her latest release, The Accidental Countess, up for raffle. If you haven’t checked out her Playful Brides series (The Accidental Countess is the second in the series), you MUST.
For seven long years, Lady Cassandra Monroe has waited for the man of her dreams to return from the war. Unfortunately, he happens to be engaged to her flighty cousin. What Cass wouldn’t give to take her cousin’s place! When he mistakes Cass for Patience Bunbury, a fictitious friend her cousin has invented to escape social obligations…even with her future husband, Cass thinks this is her chance.
After defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, Captain Julian Swift is not quite ready to settle down and enter into his unwanted arranged marriage—especially when the real object of his affection turns out to be a beguiling beauty he meets at a party. Patience Bunbury is witty, independent, passionate…and, unbeknownst to him, the cousin of his current fiancée. When the truth about Cass comes out—and Julian discovers that their courtship is anything but accidental—will he surrender his heart to a woman who really is too good to be true?
The Accidental Countess (Book 2 of the Playful Brides series) can be found at many top retailers, including Amazon http://amzn.to/1Dc31RW
