Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop!


Greetings and salutations, my fellow book-lovers!  It's time for another blog giveaway! (pause for cheering)

I've got several goodies up for grabs on this hop!  First up are 3 copies of Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning.  If you like paranormal, urban fantasy romance, this is a series for you!  Darkfever is the first book in the series, so you haven't missed anything if you start with this one.  Here's the back cover blurb:

MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….
As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….



If you're in the mood for a romantic suspense with a holiday theme, I also have 3 copies of my December release, LETHAL LIES, up for grabs!


Trusting the man she loves could cost her her life
Putting her faith in someone who lies for a living isn't the safest thing Dr. Jillian Mahoney has ever done. But to stay alive, she has to believe the undercover agent—who's kidnapped her to prove his innocence—isn't a traitor to the FBI. And to help him, she must deny their intense attraction as they run from two vengeful killers.
Her captor, Alex Malcom, has lived a life of lies—some worse than others. Still, there's one truth he's reluctant to disclose to Jillian, the woman of his dreams. One that could stop their relationship cold.

You have until midnight, January 1 to enter.  US only please.  In the meantime, Happy Holidays!  And be sure to check out the other blogs participating in this hop!

Celebrate the Small Things - Family edition


Yay!  The week is over!  We made it, guys!

This week, I'm celebrating getting to go see my brother.  He lives several states away, and since his job doesn't allow him to have time off for the holidays, my Mom and I are headed his way for the weekend.  Should be a nice time!

What are you up to this weekend?

Celebrate the Small Things - Weekend edition!


We made it through another week!  What's more, I've made it through another semester!  I'm not totally done yet, as we have finals next week and I still have grades to calculate, but since classes aren't meeting I'm going to consider it the end.  Phew!

My weekend plans...
This weekend, I'm celebrating the fact that I get to relax and hang out.  My book has been turned in, the edits have been completed, and I have a fair amount of time until my next deadline.  I'm going to take the weekend to just unwind and enjoy having nothing to do!

I'm also celebrating the fact that my third book, LETHAL LIES was released this week! Woo hoo!  If you haven't picked up a copy yet, I'd be very grateful if you did. :)

Celebrate the Small Things - Potpourii Edition


Hi everyone!  How was your week?  Not so bad, here.  In fact, I have a lot of little things to celebrate, which makes for an overall great week! :)

In no particular order...

1) I finished my edits for my May release, KILLER EXPOSURE (available for pre-order now!).  My editor reviewed and approved them (yay!), so now I get one more pass over the manuscript before it goes to the presses!

2) Mister and I are going to hang out with some friends tonight.  We haven't seen them in ages, and I'm really looking forward to catching up with them.

3) I've reached the point in the semester where my students are all giving their presentations.  It's kind of nice to be able to sit back and listen for a change!

4) I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping!  I'm trying really hard to finish soon, because I just don't want to set foot in the mall during December.  Who's with me?

5) We got a the lightest dusting of snow this past weekend.  It was lovely to look at, and thankfully it melted in a matter of minutes.  My heart goes out to the people of Buffalo--there is no way I could survive that kind of weather!  I'm a Texas girl, through and through.

So that's my good stuff for the week.  What about you?  How are things in your world?
