Series Spotlight and Interview with Jessie Evans + #Giveaway (US/International)


Meet Jessie:
Jessie Evans gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sassy, Southern romances she always wanted to read.

She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a tree house in the boonies. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.

When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and wandering the woods, glass of wine and camera both in hand, on the lookout for Bigfoot.

A southern girl, born and bred, Jessie loves writing Southern romances with just the right amount of sizzle, and hopes you'll enjoy her stories set in the fictional town of Summerville, Georgia.

{Jamie #Review} Contemporary Romance: Savor by Monica Murphy

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Billionaire Bachelors Club #3
Format: ebook via Edelweiss
Length: 100 pages
Publisher: Avon Impulse (January 21, 2014)

New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy concludes her sexy Billionaire Bachelors Club series with a fiery romance that refuses to be left at the office…

Bryn James can’t take much more. Smart, sexy Matthew DeLuca is everything she wants in a man, but he’s also her boss—the youngest, hottest vineyard owner in the Napa Valley—and he doesn’t see her as anything more than his shy assistant. That’s all about to change. Armed with a hot new look and an attitude to match, Bryn is determined to catch Matt’s eye… professionalism be damned.

With his winery’s grand reopening approaching, Matt is trying to stay focused, but Bryn is suddenly making it very difficult. He’s always thought her prim demeanor effortlessly sexy, but Matt can’t deny that her transformation is jaw-dropping …and going to make it very difficult to keep his hands to himself.

But when one thing leads to another and suddenly Matt is stripping Bryn bare, he’ll be faced with the biggest risk of his career—and his heart. Can he convince her—and himself—that this might just be more than a no-strings office affair?

{Kati #Review} Contemporary Romance: Be Mine Forever by Marina Adair

BE MINE FOREVER by Marina Adair
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: St. Helena Vineyard #4
Format: ebook via Netgalley
Length: 297 pages
Publisher: Montlake Romance (January 21, 2014)

Sometimes forever is as easy as coming home …

For Trey DeLuca, the idea of settling down was entirely unsettling. As VP of sales for his family’s wine company, he’s never in any one city—or with any one woman—for long, which is how he likes it. But when family obligations keep him temporarily grounded in his hometown, he finds the perfect distraction. She’s sweet, gorgeous, and sexy as hell … only her life screams commitment.

Between raising her son and struggling to keep her dance school afloat, Sara Reed has her hands full. Dance students she needs—a steamy tangled sheets cha-cha with a self-admitted commitment-phobe? Not going to happen. But sparks fly as the town prepares for a big Valentine’s Day gala, and Trey strikes a deal with Sara … he’ll “manny-up” and watch her son in exchange for ballroom lessons.

With love quickstepping ever closer, Sara needs to teach this playboy some new steps or risk losing him—and her heart—forever.

Forever Romance Forever Young Tour: Featuring Jessica Sorensen, J.A. Redmerski, Shannon Richard and Nyrae Dawn + #Giveaway (ebooks)

Today we're excited to bring you four fantastic Forever Romance authors who make us want to read more New Adult romances. They're sharing 5 musts have in a New Adult novel...

Top 5 Must Haves to Include in a New Adult Novel

Nyrae Dawn
1. Honestly within your writing.
2. Romance
3. Growth
4. Relatable characters. They can be flawed but we have to be able to relate to them in some way.
5. Unique stories and characters.

Shannon Richard
Honestly, I just wrote the story that was in my head. I didn’t know that Undone would be classified as New Adult; I also don’t think that classification even existed when I wrote Undone. But now that I think about it my book has some of the same characteristics as New Adult novels, however I think it falls into the contemporary romance genre as well.

The things I think Undone has that make it cross the lines are:
1. Paige might be twenty-five, but for the first time she’s out of her comfort zone and figuring out her life. She is, for all intents and purposes, a new adult.
2. Love, but I’ll have this in any book that I write.
3. Some Heat/shmexy times
4. Life changing events
5. A dash of angst

J.A. Redmerski
1. A love (or lust!) connection
2. A coming-of-age plot
3. Hot guys
4. Hot sex
5. Suspense and drama

Forming an uneasy alliance, Helen and Roane adventure through the high peaks of England, battling treasure hunters, violent storms, and dangerous terrain. But can they escape the growing passion that lays claim to their hearts?
