September Romance Classics Giveaway from Hachette Book Group

CLOSED.
Rules for entering this giveaway
are at the bottom of this post.


Thanks to the fun and flirty folks at
I have been authorized to give away 
 three (3) sets of three (3) books in the
 SEPTEMBER
FOREVER ROMANCE CLASSICS
GIVEAWAY.

Here's the scoop on the books
 you could scoop up!

* * *




Format: MASS MARKET
Price: US$6.99/CAN$8.99
ISBN: 9780446618472





Description (from the publisher):
There comes a time in a woman's life when she must do the unthinkable - and find employment. For the widowed Anna Wren, that means taking a job as female secretary for the Earl of Swartingham. Secretaries are always male - never female - as Anna well knows but the real downfall of her career is the realisation that she is falling in love with Edward de Raaf - the Earl. But when she realises that he is going to visit a brothel in London to take care of his 'manly' desires, Anna sees red - and decides to take advantage of the opportunity to also take care of her 'womanly' desires - with the Earl as her unknowing lover.


About the author (from the publisher):
Elizabeth Hoyt lives in central Illinois with three untrained dogs, two angelic, but bickering children, and one long-suffering husband.

Format: MASS MARKET
Price: US$6.99/CAN$9.99
ISBN: 9780446617864




Description (from the publisher):
Trophy wife Darcy McDaniel has just discovered that, thanks to her embezzling husband, her posh, upper-class life is gone for good. Now she's trading her suburban palace for a trailer park and her weekly salon appointments for a job. Darcy needs a new man--fast--one who'll keep her in the manner she darn well deserves. Problem is, the hottest prospect around is the my-way-or-the-highway hunk who's making off with her beloved Mercedes!

Ex-cop turned repo man John Stark is sure that hiring the furious blonde in his headlights is a colossal mistake. He knows Darcy's high-maintenance, designer-labels-only type--after all, he's used to taking their cars. But he never expected this hellion to have the smarts and the spunk to go from receptionist to repo agent in record time...or to drive him insane with desire. She's the last thing this tall, dark, and dangerous loner needs...and everything he never knew he wanted.


About the author (from the publisher):
Jane Graves began writing stories at the age of five, and she hasn't stopped since. She's a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, where she earned a B.A. in Journalism in the Professional Writing program. The author of fifteen novels, Jane is a six-time finalist for the Romance Writers of America's RITA Awards, the industry's highest honor, and is the recipient of two National Readers' Choice Awards, the Booksellers' Best Award, and the Golden Quill. She lives in Texas with her daughter and her husband of twenty-five years.

Format: MASS MARKET
Price: US$6.99/CAN$8.50
ISBN: 9780446540292






Description (from the publisher):

CAUGHT BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE . . .

Sophie, the Duchess of Calton, has finally moved on. After seven years mourning the loss of her husband, Garrett, at Waterloo, she has married his cousin and heir, Tristan. Sophie gives herself to him body and soul. . . until the day Garrett returns from the Continent, demanding his title, his lands-and his wife.

TORN BETWEEN TWO HUSBANDS . . .

Now Sophie must choose between her first love and her new love, knowing that no matter what, her choice will destroy one of the men she adores. Will it be Garrett, her childhood sweetheart, whose loss nearly destroyed her once already? Or will it be Tristan, beloved friend turned lover, who supported her through the last, dark years and introduced her to a passion she had never known? As her two husbands battle for her heart, Sophie finds herself immersed in a dangerous game-where the stakes are not only love . . . but life and death.

A HINT OF WICKED


About the author (from the publisher):
As a child, Jennifer Haymore traveled the South Pacific with her family on their homebuilt sailboat. The months spent on the sometimes-quiet, sometimes-raging seas sparked her love of adventure and grand romance. Since then, she's earned degrees in Computer Science and Education and held various jobs from bookselling to teaching inner-city children to acting, but she's never stopped writing.

You can find Jennifer in Southern California trying to talk her husband into yet another trip to England, helping her three children with homework while brainstorming a new five-minute dinner menu, or crouched in a corner of the local bookstore writing her next novel.

I remember when A HINT OF WICKED came out. I had just finished A SUMMER OF TWO WISHES and noted the similarities of the plot line. Enjoyed the one and wanted to read this one. I have read Elizabeth Hoyt but not Jane Graves.
All three will be enjoyable reads.

All of these books sound like great romances. I've always thought that romance novels should make the reader feel like they are being whisked away to some faraway place or time and these book look like they could do it.

No need to enter me, babe. I'm dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.

Stephenia said...

what a great trio of books in your give a way. The intriguing Elizabeth Hoyt and a woman doing the unthinkable draws me in. Jane Grave's book sounds like the hero is going to be a bad boy that darcy won't be able to resist. And A Hint of Wicked has a great cover picture - the theme of a lost love returning is interesting - how will Sophie choose?? thanks for the contest. quilter892ataoldotcom
