Giveaway: Home Again by Mariah Stewart

Home Again is the second book in Mariah Stewart’s Chesapeake Diaries series.  Having read the first and the second book, I think that this one really does stand alone, and it won’t diminish your enjoyment of either one if you read them out of order.

Unfortunately, reading the back cover might, so I need to come up with my own summary!  (Click here for my full review)

Dallas MacGregor is a highly successful Hollywood actress– but that success didn’t carry over to her choice of husband.  Luckily, the divorce was almost final before his latest creative endeavor, a sex tape with two young women, hit the Internet.  It’s pretty clear that his interest in Dallas is only what she could do for his career, and his interest in their 6 year old son is non-existent.

Dallas returns to her childhood retreat and the one person that can really understand the pressures of Hollywood life– Her Great Aunt Berry, a Hollywood legend, and her  estate in a small town.

Dallas begins to rebuild her life, and build a new life for her son, while she tries to figure out what role (if any) her childhood sweetheart will play.

If you want to know more, read an excerpt.

As part of the Home Again Blog Tour, I have one copy of Home Again available from Random House for a lucky winner!

To Enter

Having an address (not a PO Box) in the US or Canada is a requirement. I’ll pick the winners on the evening of October 8, 2010.

  1. Leave a comment to enter.  I’ll get your e-mail address if you are logged in to WordPress.com or you enter it where the comment form requests.  Make sure it is valid!  This is all you need to do.
  2. If you have additional entries (see below), you can leave them in the same comment, or a different one.  Whatever you prefer.
  3. For an additional entry, let me know if you subscribe to my blog via a blog reader (RSS) or e-mail, or if you follow me on Twitter. Thank you to my current subscribers, Welcome if you are new to my blog.

Giveaway: Oogy by Larry Levin

Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love

I’m really more of a cat person than a dog person.  Although I still really want a new kitten someday, I’m beginning to understand the charms of a sweet, well behaved dog.

When I was at BEA (Book Expo America) I saw this book, and the cover reached out and grabbed me.   When I got home, it had the same effect on my daughter.   I haven’t read it yet, but will soon– check back here for my review.

In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their terminally ill cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What would begin as a terrible day suddenly got brighter as the ugliest dog they had ever seen–one who was missing an ear and had half his face covered in scar tissue–ran up to them and captured their hearts. The dog had been used as bait for fighting dogs when he was just a few months old. He had been thrown in a cage and left to die until the police rescued him and the staff at Ardmore Animal Hospital saved his life. The Levins, whose sons are themselves adopted, were unable to resist Oogy’s charms, and decided to take him home.

Heartwarming and redemptive, OOGY is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him “Oogy” (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own.

Oogy will be in stores on October 12.   If you win this giveaway, you may or may not have it in your hands by then, but it should be close!

  5. As a bonus (for an additional entry) tell me about your favorite kind of pet:  Dog?  Cat? Fish? Reptile?  Rodent?  Virtual?

Good luck!

Warning, the story in this video is horribly sad.

Sizzling Summer Nights Super Giveaway

I’m not sure what season is best for steamy hot reads.  Are they best suited to hot summer days where you’re already steaming, or cold winter nights when you need something to warm you up?

I’m not sure it matters, but this summer I’ve been reading more romances again (But not too many. Within my eclectic reading, I do go through phases.  I’ve learned to spread out my reading, otherwise I’ll get tired of a genre, and I’m having too much fun to let that happen!).

I’ve read (and enjoyed) two of the books in this giveaway, so I jumped at the chance to share it with you.  These two were very different (contemporary romantic suspense and historical romance), and the other 3 each have their own style.  To Surrender to a Rogue and Deadly Fear both featured interesting characters, some very spicy scenes, and a readable plot to tie it all together.  I’ll bet the other three do as well.

In this collection, we have:
