Load Your Kindle for Labor Day Giveaway!

1 Sep

I’m in love with my Kindle. I didn’t think I would be. Don’t get me wrong, I will always always love paper books, but my Kindle has become a necessity too.

I also love Labor Day. The last unofficial weekend of the summer. BBQs, beach trips, a day off of work.

And so, taking the two things I’m loving the most right now, I’m going to load your Kindle with a bunch of great contemp romances to enjoy on your holiday weekend!


With her long ponytail and sparkling green eyes, Tessa Donovan looks more like the girl next door than a businesswoman—or a heartbreaker. Which may explain why Detective Luke Asher barely notices her when he arrives to investigate a break–in at her family’s brewery. He’s got his own problems—starting with the fact that his partner, Simone, is pregnant and everyone thinks he’s the father.

Tessa has her hands full, too. Her brother’s playboy ways may be threatening the business, and the tension could tear her tight–knit family apart. In fact, the only thing that could unite the Donovan boys is seeing a man come after their “baby” sister. Especially a man like Luke Asher. But Tessa sees past the rumors to the man beneath. He’s not who people think he is—and neither is she.


Her town’s lack of men may make headlines, but it isn’t news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool’s Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town. Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers — the perfect contestants — off the show. Despite Dakota’s better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn’t dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV. 

Jenna’s been letting life pass her by as she works on her career. But, when she needs to do some research of this kissing kind, things may get a little more heated than she expected.
Research has never been so fun.

WARNING: This 10k short has no vampires, shape shifter or scorching sex, but it might make you snort your diet Coke out your nose.



Helen Grey is finally getting everything she wants. She’s about to have the perfect dream wedding and begin an exciting new life abroad on the sunny Mediterranean island of Cyprus. But living the dream isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

After a mix-up at the airport, Helen finds herself drawn into the midst of an elaborate plot to steal an ancient statue and assassinate a local businessman. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, her wedding dress is AWOL, the statue seems to be cursed, and Helen is wanted by the police.

With the big day rapidly approaching, a roller-coaster of mishaps, misunderstandings, and disasters threatens to turn the newlyweds into nearlyweds.

Can Helen prevent an assassination, save the statue, and have the perfect wedding? Or will the day to remember turn into one she’d rather forget? 

SO, HOW DO YOU ENTER TO WIN??? Easy! Tell me about your favorite beach read and you’re in!

Drawing is Friday night…just in time to pack them to go!

    I love Sara Dessen! But if I had to pick a favorite it would be something by Janet Evanovich! She is too funny! I spend half the time laughing when I’m reading her books! Thanks for the giveaway! 😀

    I like fun and light for summer beach reads. My favorite so far is the Stephanie Plum series By Janet Evanovich.

    • caitiequinn September 1, 2011 at 1:50 pm #

      Wow, lots of Stephanie Plum – I’ll admit, I LOVE a bit of zanie humor (which is obvious to anyone who knows me!)

    It might sound a bit strangem but I love reading children books when I go to a beach 🙂 Roald Dahl is my favorite! His books are short and sweet and a nice rea even for an adult 🙂

    • caitiequinn September 2, 2011 at 7:19 am #

      NO – That doesn’t seem strange at all – there’s a whole discussion going on right now on the amazon romance forum about who likes shorts and why!

    JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood was my last year beach read. Nothing so hot as them on the beach….
