Happy New Year! It’s time for the Great New Year’s Giveaway, but first I have to announce the winner of the last day of the 30 Days of Christmas Giveaway… Anne! Wooo hooo!

And now on to our New Year’s Eve festivities! I have several books to give away, including books from dear friends as well as colleagues from Passion In Print and Loose Id!

March, Sierra Brave and Christina Lynn Lambert! Bear shifters, paranormal agents, an MMA champion, a vixen who sells sex toys, a marine biologist and a soldier, and a menage with aliens! Okay, and my offering…Christmas Cowboys in both MF and MM! And maybe even a little audiobook action…

Christina Lynn Lambert

A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance.  My style is more gritty than sweet and I look forward to writing many more stories with strong heroines and imperfect but determined characters. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.

Bear’s Edge (Stranger Creatures Book 2)

After sexy bear shifter Grant lost his girlfriend and three best friends in a fire, he decided he was done with love, done with people, done with pretty much everything. One woman has him rethinking his whole strategy.

As his boss, Shayla is off-limits, so Grant keeps his feelings for her under wraps until…the attraction doesn’t seem so one-sided. Grant takes a risk and lays a piece of his heart on the line. When things get hotter than he could have imagined, Grant wonders- will some of his darker desires be too much for Shayla or will she embrace the needs he’s kept hidden for so long?

A reporter who covered the bombing Shayla survived three years before is convinced the only reason Shayla survived is because she’s some type of bionic medical experiment or superhuman freak. When the reporter ropes Shayla’s angry ex, Hunter into the mix, Shayla’s business and her life are on the line. Can she and Grant trust in each other and find a way to slay all the obstacles that stand in their way?

Border Town

A thin line exists between reality and the paranormal, between one country and the next. Lucia grew up stuck between cultures on the border of Texas and Mexico and the wavy lines of reality. With the help of her two sisters, she runs the family ranch, or what’s left of it.

Years ago, a hurricane shifted the river, cutting through the property with their land partially ending up on the other side of the Rio Grande. Mother Nature unleashed more than land wars. Legend tells of a supernatural beast slaughtering the livestock every seven years. When the carcasses of goats show up drained of blood, she reaches out for help.

Shaw McDiamond doesn’t want to be stuck in a hick town chasing after the myth of the chupacabra. As part of an elite force of paranormal agents that work the border, Shaw’s group, SLICE, exposes aliens of another kind. This vampiric creature is like nothing he’s encountered, and the woman he’s working with unnerves him even more.

Lucia and Shaw clash over folklore and reality, fate and free will. As the killings escalate with the attack of a ranch hand, the storm returns, and the two become trapped in an ever-shifting world they can’t control. And to survive, they’ll have to do it together.

Her body of work includes erotic romance, psychological thrillers and the supernatural. Recently this has been extended into science fiction with sexy aliens.

Thigh high stockings, a gorgeous neighbor, and a sexy bet…

Young, divorced, and broke Kat Hardee’s leery of putting herself in the path of the next great guy. But she’s crushed on her neighbor, Taye since he moved in and would love nothing more than to catch his eye.

But when innocent Kat turns into a vixen who sells sex toys wearing too-hot-to -handle thigh high stockings, he wonders what he’s in for.

Sierra Brave

Sierra Brave is a multi-published author of smoking hot romance. She writes across genres, dabbling in a little bit of everything, including ménage and BDSM. Her love of erotic fiction started in her last year of high school when she first read the sensual classic, Fanny Hill. She felt so naughty yet liberated with her copy tucked away in her book bag and hopes her work will have the same delicious effect on her readers.

Crystal Coast Christmas

After escaping a bad relationship and moving into her aunt’s guest quarters, marine biologist Jessica Butler has sworn off love and relationships. Still, she can’t resist a night of no-strings passion with hunky soldier, Captain Chase Culpepper. Their evening sizzles, leaving Jessica satisfied but wary. Her ex did a great job of destroying her self-confidence, leaving Jessica reluctant to take the plunge into romance again. While Chase is asleep, Jessica runs.

Chase can’t believe he’s found his sexual equal in Jessica. When he wakes up alone the next morning, he’s determined to make Jessica his, in spite of her reluctance to put her heart on the line.

Jessica’s sworn off men for good, but the faster she runs, the more Chase finds to love about her. What will it take for him to win her trust and her love?


Kate Richards

Kate Richards divides her time between Los Angeles and the High Sierras. She would gladly spend all her days in the mountains, but she’d miss the beach…and her very supportive husband’s commute would be three hundred miles. Wherever she is, she loves to explore all different kinds of relationships in her stories. She doesn’t believe one-size-fits-all, and whether her characters live BDSM, ménage, GLBT, spanking, or any other kind of lifestyle, it’s the love, the joy in one another, that counts.

Captive for Christmas

All she wants for Christmas is a safe place to hide

Camilla’s been on the run for a year, since her mother’s death left her at the mercy of her stepfather who expects her to step into her mother’s shoes…in all ways. And as a powerful man in their small town he’s convinced everyone she’s delusional. Even her own grandmother believes him. A travel plaza in the Mojave Desert has been her haven until, just before Christmas, it’s not. He’s found her. How much farther can she go with little money and a broken-down car? How about outer space? Impossible.

Arvan and Tris travel the galaxies in search of a special fuel that makes their technology possible—and the third member of their relationship. But the Universe is a big place and the odds of finding either slim. Especially in the back of beyond, where they are not allowed contact with the locals. Terra may offer what they seek, fuel wise, but as they close in on the location from above, they spot a female racing across the desert landscape, a male with a weapon in hot pursuit. Breaking all their rules, they transport her to the ship to save her life. But now what to do? They can’t send her back with knowledge of “aliens” near Terra. And there’s a bigger complication. She may be their third.
