Free Book Friday (with a side of Funny) – Easter edition




As you know, my new book was released this week, & ON THE VERGE OF I DO is firmly set in Charleston, South Carolina (with a sexy side trip to Seabrook Island :winkwink ), which gave me the great idea of giving away some of the Southern-set books I read as “research” while writing Kara & Eli’s story!

The first of those books that helped to put me in a Southern state of mind is Blaze by JoAnn Ross.

To enter the giveaway for this book, simply leave a comment to today’s post that includes the code FBF—for “Free Book Friday,” of course—to let me know you’re interested in the drawing. (U.S. residents only for the prize, please, but everyone is welcome to chat.)

PhotobucketWinner will be announced during our Happy Sunday post on…well, you know, Sunday.

Winner is responsible for contacting me with her mailing information—i.e. I will not be contacting you—so be sure to check back in or you might not even know you won! :curses

(If prize isn’t claimed within 14 days, another name may be drawn or item may be tossed back into the goody bag to be re-used for a future giveaway.)

      Thanks so much, Cindy. I absolutely loved writing the “Chicks with Sticks” trilogy & would love to do more along those lines. Been kept pretty busy with the vampire books & Desire, but there may be more humorous contemps on the horizon…keep your eyes peeled… :winkwink

    FBF Charleston is my favorite city. I was there recently. It never loses it’s charm.

  22. JoAnn Ross says:

    What fun photos!

    I’m delighted BLAZE helped get you in a Southern frame of mind and I hope the sexy and romantic On the Verge of I Do sells gangbusters!

    Somersett, South Carolina, where my book is set, is a blend of two of my favorite southern cities — Charleston and Savannah. I wanted the Charleston Harbor and the churches, but also the bridge, lovely squares, and insular feeling of Savannah. We’re now back home in the Pacific Northwest, but I did so enjoy our twelve years in the South, which is such fertile ground for storytelling!
