Indie Giveaway Hop Stop #19

Welcome to stop number 19 on the Indie Giveaway Hop! The week-long hop is hosted by A Daydreamers Thoughts and Booked Up Reviews and supported by Blogger Loving, Making Connections, and Shut Up & Read.

To celebrate Indie authors, I’m giving away some of my favorite indy books. Obsession is the first book in Debra Webb’s Faces of Evil series. If you enjoy thrillers, you’ll love this opening novel for a serial killer series. The Matchmaker’s Mark by Regan Black is a personal favorite, light paranormal romance. Also the first in a series, I can’t wait to see the next installment. My final giveaway is a fun contemporary romance, Deal with a Devil by Diana Duncan.

Photo of Heiress and Her Fake Fiance by Kimberly Hope book coverIn my book, The Heiress and Her Fake Fiancé , when Jessica Heymore needs to figure out what to do with the mess her life has become, she runs home to the North Carolina beach town where she grew up. It’s hardly surprising. I’ve run back home when my life hit rock bottom. And when I was there, I ran to the beach. Now that I’m on the east coast, I run to the beach at least once a year, usually in the winter when the place is deserted and the weather is a lot like Northern California in May.

Which raises the question, where do you run when you need to get away? Answer the question as a comment on this blog and you’re immediately entered in the drawing for one of the books above.

Here’s an excerpt from Jessica’s story:

“It’ll go away,” she muttered. Her body hadn’t gotten the memo saying she was over him. With so little sleep, her body and her hormones were working on autopilot. Tomorrow everything would get back to normal.

 “Now, come on, you two, work with me. This isn’t a root canal. Matt, put your arm around the girl. You’re supposed to be in love.”

“What? We’re not –,” The words died in Jessica’s throat when Matt touched her.

He slipped his arm around her waist, and pulled her close, so they stood hip to hip.

“You mean like this?”

Fire ran up her side and she wanted to cry. Why didn’t Bill cause sensations like these?

“Or was this more what you had in mind, Vi?”

Jessica stopped thinking the minute he turned her so they were facing. He winked as he slowly pulled her closer, until she was pressed firmly against his hard body. Her hands reached for his shoulders, almost of their own volition.

Matt lowered her in a dip and their eyes met. Her laughter died in her throat. Eyes that had held humorous sparks just a moment before now darkened to near-black with an awareness she’d never seen. Anticipation licked up her spine but Jessica opened her mouth to protest.

“Well, don’t just stand there. Kiss her, for goodness sake.”

He whispered an oath as he lowered his head.

  1. As I rarely have the opportunity to get away in the literal sense, I get away to my back patio with a good book – there I can go anywhere and always find a good time :) Thank you for participating in this fun hop.

  2. I live by myself, so if I needed to run away from home or take a break, it would be pretty sad. When my boss starts making my blood pressure rise, I just go outside into the fresh air and either sit for 10-15 minutes or take a short walk.

  3. Thanks for this contest. When I want to get away I grab a book and a glass of Iced tea and head out to the deck!!!

    1. Seems like we’re all running outside. While you all are reading on your decks, that’s my favorite place to write, with a glass of Vietnamese coffee (iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk). It’s great on a hot day.

  4. If I can get away from the house I grab a book and drink and head outside somewhere. If I am stuck inside I have been known to lock myself in the bathroom 😉

    1. Nice! I admit, I locked myself in the bathroom with a book on Saturday. I’d forgotten how nice it was to enjoy a bath and read until the water got cold!
