Juliana Stone Boxed Set 99 Cent Special!!

Barket Triplets

My blog followers know that I enjoy calling attention to some of my favorite romance authors, and to dynamite reading deals.  Well, here’s a really great one by the talented Juliana Stone.  I think Juliana writes some of the best contemporary romance on the shelves today.  Her books are sexy, emotional, tender, and feature bad-boy heroes to die for.  And for a limited time, The Barker Tripletsher series about three sisters with a knack for trouble–is on sale for only 99 cents.  Here are the details:

Book One: OFFSIDE

When hockey phenom Billie-Jo Barker returns home and decides to play in the local Friday night hockey league, all hell breaks loose. Not because Billie’s talent is in question, but because Billie is a woman. And though these are modern times, some of the local guys still have a problem letting a girl into their ‘men’s club.’

Soon, Billie is at the center of a small town battle of the sexes, with everyone choosing sides. Her sisters. The townsfolk. Her friends. And yet, the only person whose opinion she cares about doesn’t seem to care that much at all. Logan Forest, the man who broke her heart when she was eighteen and the man she shares the bench with every Friday night.

She’s got a lot to prove and though Billie-Jo Barker scores on the ice, will this girl ever score with the man of her dreams?

Book Two:  COLLIDE

Bobbi-Jo Barker has been in love with the wrong man for years. A man who doesn’t fit into the perfect, controlled life she’s created.A man who,once, not only broke her heart but nearly destroyed her. So the fact that he’s back in town shouldn’t matter because he’s all wrong for her, or so she thinks…

Offside

Shane Gallagher, prodigal son and all around hellion, has returned to the small town of New Waterford not only to mend fences, but to get his life back together. What he doesn’t count on are the feelings he still has for the one woman who can break him–the one who still holds his heart–the one woman who is totally wrong for him.

And yet, as Bobbi and Shane are thrown together and begin to navigate a life with each other in it, neither can deny the attraction they feel, or the emotions that come with it–the good and the bad. And so the question becomes… can these two damaged souls survive a second chance at love?

Book Three:  CONCEAL

Black sheep and all around trouble maker, Betty Jo Barker is back home and hoping for a do-over. Things are finally looking up until Beau Simon comes to town. The man pushes every button she owns and manages to awaken long dead emotions she’d rather leave buried. Beneath the surface she knows she’s a wreck-her scars run deep-and she can’t help but wonder, is Beau Simon the one who can fix her?

Beau Simon, the brightest star in Hollywood has come to New Waterford for one reason only. He’s determined to have Betty Jo Barker star in his next film. He knows she’s perfect for the part, but a past encounter might prove more than a little difficult to overcome. As Beau turns on the charm, hoping to win over this complicated woman, he realizes it won’t be easy.

Only time will tell if what lies beneath can ever be overcome. Or if love can heal all…

They sound great, don’t they?  The Barker Triplets Boxed Set is on sale until Nov. 9th.  It’s available on Amazon, Nook, iTunes, Kobo, and other e-retailers.  So, hop on over and dowload your copy of these three wonderful, full-length books for only 99 cents!

Dark

Boy, have I got a great deal for you today!  Three stories by fellow Rock*It Reads authors Bonnie Vanak, Laurie London, and Erin Kellison are featured in a new paranormal romance anthology that also includes other fantastic authors like USA Today Bestseller Jennifer Ashley.  Even more exciting, this collection is now on sale for ONLY 99 cents!  Trust me – I’ve already downloaded my own copy.

Here are some of the stories included in this anthology:

THE MATING HUNT by Bonnie Vanak
After a childhood trauma left Arianna Sanders terrified of sex, the only man the pretty Lupine werewolf desires is her fiercely protective guardian. But the sexy, mysterious shifter harbors a dark secret, one he’s determined to hide from Arianna.

Kyle Morgan hungers for the voluptuous Arianna and dreams of consummating the passion smoldering between them. When he’s forced into mating with her to save her life, he must tame the savage, sexual beast inside him before taking the virgin he’s vowed to protect from those hungering to claim her, including himself…

ASSASSIN’S TOUCH by Laurie London
Two worlds. Two enemies. One fated touch.

Former fashion designer Neyla Trihorn had the perfect life until a deadly accident revealed her latent para-abilities–now she’s the army’s hottest asset in their fight against invaders. Rickert D’Angelus, the dangerously sexy assassin from Cascadia, leads a group of warriors into New Seattle to stop enemy soldiers from finding the Iron Portal into his world.

When he captures the beautiful Protection-Talent, a passionate vision appears and stirs something deep inside him. Rickert must decide if it’s a Talent trick, designed to foil the enemy…or the answer to his deepest desires.

SHADOW BOUND by Erin Kellison
Dark fantasy meets modern fairy tale…

Adam Thorne founded the Segue Institute to study and destroy his monster of a brother, but the key to its success is held in the pale, slender hand of a woman on the run. There is something hauntingly different about Talia O’Brien, her unknowing sensuality, her uncanny way of slipping into Shadow. Twilight is the place between life and what comes after–a dark forest of fantasy, filled with beauty, peril, mystery. And Talia is about to open the door.

HARD MATED by Jennifer Ashley
Spike, a wildcat Shifter and the champion fighter of Shiftertown, is stunned when Myka, the best friend of a dying human woman, announces that Spike has fathered a cub. What’s more, the mother is giving the boy to Spike to protect and raise.

Spike is torn between the cub and his duties as tracker to the Shiftertown leader, and begs sassy and sexy horse-training Myka, the only person who understands, to help him. When Spike’s job puts his cub and Myka in danger, Spike is forced to choose between those to whom he’s pledged his loyalty and his need to protect the woman and cub he’s come to love.

Guest Author: Mia Marlowe & Giveaway!!

Mia

I’m so pleased to be hosting fellow historical romance author Mia Marlowe on the blog today.  Mia is a fantastic writer who can fashion a captivating tale and place it in just about any historical period.  It’s no mystery to me why she’s a bestselling, award-winning author!  She’s with us today to share some very exciting news.

Plaid to the Bone is your 20th book, which is an amazing accomplishment.  How do you feel about that?  Has your writing career given you any surprises along the way?

I’m thrilled! And no one is more surprised than me. I’ve been published since 2006 and of course, my career has had its ups and downs. Please don’t ask me about the fiasco with my first agent (whom I had to threaten with legal action to get the advance on my debut!) or the sad sinking of Dorchester. Fortunately my editors (Alicia Condon at Kensington & Leah Hultenschmidt at Sourcebooks) have championed me and kept me in print.  I have a wonderful agent now (Natasha Kern) and readers have kept reading. I’m a very lucky girl and I know it.

The heroine in Plaid to the Bone is pledged to murder her husband, which is an awesome basis for conflict!  What can you tell us about the book, and how did you come up with such a splendid idea?

Plaid to the Bone

I had already written Plaid Tidings (October 2103, Kensington) in which my hero becomes laird of Bonniebroch Castle. Only trouble is, there’s a pretty hefty curse on the place which he must lift before Twelfth Night. My editor asked if I’d write a novella that explains how the castle came to be cursed in the first place, so Plaid to the Bone took shape in my head.

I reasoned that the curse was the result of a betrayal. At her father’s behest, Cait Grant has sworn a blood oath to kill Adam Cameron after they’ve been wed a month. What more heinous betrayal could there be than a bride who plans to murder her new husband?

 You have another book coming out soon – what can you tell us about it?

In Plaid Tidings, 300 years have passed since the events in Plaid to the Bone. It’s 1821 and my hero Alexander is part of the advance team preparing the way for Prinny’s visit to Scotland. He’s on the look out for any remaining Radicals who might threaten the king. To hide his true purpose for being in Scotland, he wins Bonniebroch and the accompanying barony in a game of chance. What Alex doesn’t know is that the title comes with a betrothal to a Scottish lass whose brother is a notorious Radical. And to add to his troubles, the castle to which he brings his unwanted bride is haunted!

The final book in my Songs of the North trilogy will be out in November and the last of the Royal Rakes releases in January. I just signed contract with both publishers for more Scottish and Regency romances. Please check my  Coming Next page for the latest news!

Guest Author: Diana Cosby & Giveaway!

Most of you probably know that Diana Cosby writes international bestselling historical romance, but did you know she also writes paranormal romance? Well, she does!  In fact, she has a brand new novella that was just released this week.  It’s called Highland Vampire, and it’s part of an anthology that also contains stories by historical romance authors Hannah Howell and Erica Ridley.

Darkly handsome and dangerously sexy, these voracious vampires are out for blood—and bound for eternal love…

Here’s the blurb for Diana’s story:

As King of the Highland Coven, vampire Aedan MacGregor knows that falling for the fey Rowan Campbell could destroy her. But one taste of her healing blood and he craves her like no other. Dare claim her as his own, knowing he might lose her forever?

Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?  The other stories in the anthology look pretty great too, so do check them out on Diana’s book page.

Does that mean Diana is giving up on her historicals?  Heck, no!  Right now she’s hard at work on her next book in her award-winning MacGruder Series.

And take a look at the fab cover for one of the existing books in the series.

Nice, eh?  In fact, Diana is giving away a copy of His Conquest today, to one of my readers.  Just tell us which series books you’re looking forward to reading in the next few months for a chance to win Diana’s book.
