I’m doing the rounds of the world-wide-interweb today, talking about the joys of romance, the joys (or not) of summer jobs, and giving away books. My first stop is at Read-A-Romance-Month, which is a month long celebration of the joys of romance, sponsored by Bobbi Dumas of Kirkus Reviews. Bobbi is hosting dozens of fabulous romance writers during the month of August, who are all talking about their personal experiences of the romance genre AND giving away lots of books. Click here to join me at RARM, where I’m doing a giveaway of HOW TO MARRY A ROYAL HIGHLANDER (and also one of my VK Sykes contemporary romances).
I’m visiting with the lovely ladies at Embracing Romance today, talking about the joys and challenges of writing under two pen names. Please stop by to chat with me about my upcoming historical romance AND contemporary romance releases, and for a chance to win two of my books. Click hereto join me!
Finally, I’m running blog tours for both books to celebrate their releases next week. At each tour stop, there will be exclusive excerpts and chances to win books and gift cards. Please click herefor the ROYAL HIGHLANDER tour schedule, and click herefor the SUMMER AT THE SHORE tour schedule.
Yesterday I posted the blog tour for HOW TO MARRY A ROYAL HIGHLANDER. Today is the blog tour round-up for SUMMER AT THE SHORE, the contemporary romance I wrote with my hubby as VK Sykes. It’s also coming out on June 30th, so I’m doing a fun blog tour and giveaway for SUMMER, too. You can enter to win prizes at every stop, plus read exclusive excerpts and interviews. I’d love it if you could join me on that tour, too!
HOW TO MARRY A ROYAL HIGHLANDER, book 4 in my Renegade Royals Series, comes out on June 30th. My publisher is currently running a giveaway on Goodreads to win an early copy of the book. And here’s a little incentive to enter–when the contest reaches 800 entries, I’ll be unlocking some extra content and goodies. That will include a bonus chapter featuring the scene when my heroine realizes she’s falling in love with the hero. Trust me–she’s not too happy about that revelation!
Most of you know that I also write contemporary romance with my hubby as V.K. Sykes. MEET ME AT THE BEACH, book one in our new Seashell Bay Series, hit the stores last month in both digital and print. I’m happy to tell you that it’s now on sale in digital for only $2.99!
Here’s the blurb:
YOU CAN’T STOP A RISING TIDE
When Lily Doyle spots her high school crush Aiden Flynn on the inbound ferry, she knows trouble is about to dock in Seashell Bay. And not just because he’s more handsome than ever. If Aiden’s in town, the rumors must be true about his family’s plan to sell their coastal land to the highest bidder. But Lily will do whatever it takes to convince the hottest guy on the beach to protect their idyllic island home.
Gorgeous Lily Doyle was the only thing Aiden missed after he escaped from his hometown to play pro baseball. Now all Aiden wants is to wrap up the business deal and get back to his life, not relive a past that still haunts him. But as memories rush in about the night of passion he and Lily shared long ago, everything else washes right out to sea-everything except the desire that still burns between them.
The second contest is on my VK Sykes facebook page, and includes this swell little prize pack of contemporary romance novels, including a copy of my soon-to-be released small town romance, MEET ME AT THE BEACH.
