Beach Reads Giveaway Hop July 14-18




You know, I'd been starting to worry that, once my WOLF'S BANE release tour wrapped up, I'd be at a loss for stuff to do. I guess I could get back to writing The Heartbeat Thief. I guess I could go back to constantly refreshing my inbox, waiting for the artwork to my upcoming para rom to arrive. I guess I could maybe even re-introduce myself to my husband and children.

I guessed wrong :) I've been doing multi-giveaways for weeks now. Can't quit cold turkey, now. That would be irresponsible and possibly disastrous. So...

One more blog hop before I go back to the real world, 'kay?

This one is simple... leave a comment and record your entry in the Rafflecopter. Winner gets a gift card so they can download a coveted beach read for their eReader!

Did you know that my urban fantasy BLEEDING HEARTS (Demimonde #1) was once compared to a beach read?
"... an emotionally gripping story that at times deceivingly reads like a light, airy beach read one second, only to surprise you with its depth the next."--GraveTells.com

See the full review (and the fancy-smancy graphic of the blog award BLEEDING HEARTS won) here if you need a new book for your trip to the beach!

I'd love to hear what you think... what is it about a book that makes it a great beach read? Think... comment... win. :) And happy reading!

  1. for me a beach read needs to be an entertaining story enjoyable but non complicated. i want to rest to imply enjoy the story not to start wondering at what the real motivations of the characters are, or how it happened etc.
    i want a book with a conclusion and happy ending^^;


    ( summer read is different they must be captivating so that i can jump into the next book if completely hooked and i do think your books would be in that category more than in the beach reads one^^)

    thank you for this new giveaway ( if i were to win i would save it for the paperback of your book not for a ebook)

    1. I love happy endings too, but I don't always get them...sometimes I appreciate the bittersweet more.

  5. I really like anything that gets me away from the stress of work, as long as I'm engaged in the story, I don't really care what genre it is.

  14. I think a good beach read is a read that is light and entertaining and fun. Something that will take your mind away from everyday life. It also should be one of those books that you just cannot put down.

  19. What makes a good beach read for me is a story that holds my attention and I become lost in it. If it happens to be hot, it's a BIG bonus! ;)
