Spend four nights every year with her own husband? Never! #amreading #historical #romance @EloisaJames

four-nights-with-a-duke-postcard“No, Your Grace, I will not live with you, dine with you—or sleep with you, even for four nights.”

ABOUT THE BOOK:

As a young girl, Emilia Gwendolyn Carrington told the annoying future Duke of Pindar that she would marry any man in the world before him—so years later she is horrified to realize that she has nowhere else to turn.

Evander Septimus Brody has his own reasons for agreeing to Mia’s audacious proposal, but there’s one thing he won’t give his inconvenient wife: himself. Instead, he offers Mia a devil’s bargain… he will spend four nights a year with her.

Four nights, and nothing more. And those only when she begs for them. Which Mia will never do.

Now Vander faces the most crucial challenge of his life: he must seduce his own wife in order to win her heart—and no matter what it takes, this is the one battle he can’t afford to lose.

ABOUT ELOISA: A reviewer from USA Today wrote that she “found herself devouring [Eloisa’s] book like a dieter with a Hershey bar”; People Magazine raved that “romance writing does not get much better than this.” Eloisa wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got a couple more degrees and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. Over twenty best-sellers later, she teaches Shakespeare in the English Department at Fordham University in New York City. She’s also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.

His beauitful new neighbor doesn’t know the first thing about ranching. And he doesn’t know the first thing about love. #western #cowboy #amreading

calliope-creek-postcardTODAY’S REVOLVING BOOK IS THE UPCOMING RELEASE  – CALLIOPE CREEK by DeAnn Smallwood.

PRE-ORDER ON AMAZON for $3.99: http://amzn.to/2eVTtlC

Trent was a loner, a man of few words. All he wanted or needed in his life was his ranch: Calliope Ranch in the picturesque town of Meeker, Colorado, near the prosperous and booming city of Calliope Falls.

That was until Riley swept into his life like a bright, beautiful whirlwind.

Riley grew up surrounded by wealth, in a family that practically owned the entire city of Calliope Falls.

Riley had no idea how to make a pot of coffee let alone run a ranch.

Riley had spent her entire life being being controlled and ridiculed by her demanding grandfather and selfish mother.

Until she defied them by moving to Meeker, Colorado and fighting to show she could make it on a working ranch – her ranch. The ranch she inherited from her father. The ranch that happened to be next door to Trent’s. At first, Trent resented Riley’s presence.  But little-by-little, the beautiful whirlwind swirled around his heart. And when tragedy strikes, Trent realizes that his life as a loner is about to change forever.

DeANN SMALLWOOD AUTHOR BIO: I live in Colorado with my husband and my two Yorkie kid dogs: Stormy, four pounds, and Eli, six pounds. I’m a native of Colorado, but I’ve lived several years in Wyoming and Montana. I draw from these beautiful states for most of my books. My Western Historical Romances are: Montana Star, Sapphire Blue, Unconquerable Callie, One Shingle To Hang, and Wyoming Heather and One Shingle To Hang. Tears In The Wind is a contemporary romance. Then I changed genres from my beloved romances and wrote, under the pen name of D. M. Woods, my first suspense/thriller: Death Crosses The Finish Line. The second book in this ‘death’ series, Death Is A Habit, came out January 8, 2014. I am currently working on the third book in the ‘death’ series, Death Walks C Dock. I am also working on another Western Historical Romance, Montana Man. It features the characters readers came to know and love in Montana Star. Truly, I mean it when I say my greatest pleasure next to writing is having my books read and enjoyed. There are many more stories just waiting to be written

He kissed her and she was lost . . . A MOST UNLIKELY WEDDING by USA Today Bestselling author Patricia McLinn #amreading #romance

d3dfe98a-9d47-42bd-b21a-222384ad3220

Today’s REVOLVING BOOK is the BRAND NEW RELEASE: A MOST UNLIKELY WEDDING by USA Today Bestselling Author Patricia McLinn.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

The Kiss Was a Rehearsal, Did She Forget to Say ‘Cut’?

Filmmaker Kay Aaronson left New York for small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, to jumpstart her career. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan. When Kay’s leading man stalks off the set of the music video she’s shooting at the historic Bliss House, the town’s wise and beloved Miss Trudi invites recent divorcee Rob Dalton to take the part. Kay sets the scene, increasingly distracted by this businessman who’s far more handsome than her missing star. When her hands-on direction leads to a fiery kiss, the sparks are visible for all to see. Everyone thinks they’re right for each other, but nobody knows the secrets they’re harboring. Or what it might mean if those secrets became public. Will Rob and Kay let fear determine their fate, or risk allowing themselves to explore where that first kiss might lead?

A Most Unlikely Wedding, Book 3 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s Marry Me series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Roxanne St. Clair, and Jill Shalvis.

Praise for A Most Unlikely Wedding:

“I couldn’t put it down!” — Amazon Review 

“I was not only wanting to find out what happens with Kay and Rob, but was dying to know their scandals and what would happen with them. And the whole town of Tobias is filled with interesting characters. Two thumbs up!” — 5-Star Amazon Review

“(McLinn’s)  characters go through really great growth, both within themselves and with each other, … It makes it that much more satisfying.” — Amazon Review

“Kay is feisty and fantastic, Rob is hunky and frustrating … They’ve both got stuff going on that’s making it hard for them to be completely open with each other — and with the reader, which adds a whole new level of anticipation to the reading.” — Amazon Review

Praise for the Marry Me series:

“With her two latest books set in a perfectly realized and perfectly charming small town, McLinn has created two beautifully written, richly emotional love stories that are a joy to read.” – John Charles, American Library Association

“Gifted Patricia McLinn has written another wonderful series filled with emotion and romance.” — CataRomance Reviews

“McLinn delivers a wonderful romance. … I hope she never stops writing them.”  — 5-Star Amazon Review

“A heart-warming tale.” – 5-Star Amazon Review

SNEAK PEEK:

“Stand here, and watch.”

Kay dashed up the stairs to Laura’s mark, spun around and found the actress studying her nails. “Laura!” She waited until the younger woman looked up, then pinned her with her eyes. “Watch. Because next time I want you to do it exactly like this.”

She drew in a breath, set the mood in her head, and only then did she look at Rob.

He looked up at her. His face was serious, but there was something so alive in his eyes she couldn’t look anywhere else. 

He had extraordinary eyelashes. In an utterly masculine face, they were thick and lush and dark, both top and bottom, so from a distance they gave the impression his eyes were dark, almost smudgy. But at this distance, and especially with his eyes trained on her so intently, between the dark, dense fringe shone silvery eyes flecked with green and brown. 

Unending eyes.

She started down the steps to him. Not because her timing dictated the move, but because she wanted to see those eyes closer. When he stepped up and held out a hand to her, her pace quickened. One more step—

And then she was there, in his arms, He drew her in. She wound her arms around his neck. Their mouths met.

And Kay Aaronson burst into flames.
