UPDATE: The “I Have the Book in My Hands” giveaway prize went to reader Fannie on 5-16-09. It was a delight to talk to Fannie, and the Princess talked to her, too. Two signed books, one of my homemade berries ‘n’ cream candles, and strawberry jam are on the way!
It’s out! My new book, High-Stakes Homecoming, is in stores now! For those of you who ask why you can’t find my books in stores, Harlequin/Silhouette romance novels hit store shelves for a brief period of time. Now and for the next two or three weeks you can find High-Stakes Homecoming on the shelves in most stores that carry books (Borders, Barnes & Noble, Waldenbooks, Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, and some grocery stores). You can also find it online and shop from home! See below for links to online bookstores.
Back cover copy: Willa North couldn’t forget her first love—or what really happened to tear them apart. All she wants now is to hold on to her home, provide for her daughter and not get hurt again. Now Penn Ramsey’s back in town, and a sudden storm throws them together in the isolated farmhouse that they both claim to have inherited. While the storm rages, more danger lurks outside in a series of suspicious—and deadly—accidents. They’re forced to band together to keep themselves and Willa’s daughter alive. But how can they fight the mysterious threat—and reignite the heat that blazes between them—if they can’t let go of the pain of the past?

“I Have the Book in My Hands” Giveaway: Win homemade jam, a “Berries ‘n’ Cream candle, and two autographed books!
Please read carefully. You must be “present” to win and you must have the book in your hands (or near enough to pick up). There will be no advance notice. DO NOT ENTER if you aren’t 1) willing to provide a phone number where you can be reached, or 2) going to buy the book and quickly because you must have the book in your hands before May 16.
How to enter: Buy the book. You must have the book in your hands to win. Enter by emailing me your name and phone numbers where you can normally be reached on a weekend. (Home, cell, work, etc.) The prize will be awarded sometime during the weekend of May 16 and 17. I will attempt to reach you at the numbers provided for three hours then another name will be drawn and the prize will be awarded to someone else. (One backlist autographed book will be sent to any entrants who are passed over because they couldn’t be reached. You will be notified by email after you have been passed over. However, if you are reached and you don’t win because you don’t have the book in your hands, you get nada, sorry!)
How to win: You must have the book in your hands. A very easy question will be asked to you over the phone. Easy, but only answerable if you actually have the book in your hands. You must be able to provide the answer immediately. (No time will be provided for you to email your friends who have the book and ask them for the answer, sorry! No cheating, LOL.) If you have the book in your hands, the question will be so easy, you will be able to answer it in under 30 seconds.
Giveaway Prize: One homemade “Berries ‘n’ Cream candle, one 8-ounce jar of my homemade jam (apricot, peach, or strawberry–your choice), and two autographed backlist titles (your choice, some of my older books are no longer available but most are).
Prize will be shipped to the winner, or if the winner lives within reasonable driving distance, they will be invited (if they choose) to come to the farm and pick up their prize in person, have a piece of pie on the porch, and give Clover a cookie!
Note: You don’t actually have to read the book to win, by the way. But you must have it in your hands in order to answer the question and win. The question will not be answerable without the book in front of you.
P.S. If you enter with your cell number or work number because you don’t expect to be at home at least part of the time during that weekend, remember that you will have to have the book with you to answer the question and win–so don’t leave the book at home when you go out that weekend!
P.P.S. I will not use your phone numbers for any other purpose than to make the giveaway call. I promise not to call you at 2 am to ask if your refrigerator is running……….
