Sizzling Summer Nights Giveaway!

Thanks to Hachette Book Group, we've got a Super Giveaway for the month of August! Three winners will each win a set of these great books below:

A closer look at the books in the giveaway:

Marlena is terrified.

For weeks, a serial killer has terrorized her town, murdering women and stripping them of their favorite piece of jewelry. But the most terrifying thing of all is that those pieces of jewelry have all appeared as beautifully wrapped gifts on Marlena's door and she has no idea who is leaving them for her or why. The only thing she knows for sure: that she's next on his list.

With a serial killer on the loose in his town, Sheriff Dante Valtrez has his hands full, especially when Marlena shows up on his doorstep, afraid and alone, with evidence that ties her directly to the murders. She couldn't have committed the crimes herself, but Dante doesn't trust this mysterious beauty. When the violence escalates and strange and inexplicable things start happening in the town...and to Marlena, Dante can't deny that there's more than just human evil at work and that Marlena is the target.

As desire binds them together and an otherworldly force threatens to tear them apart, can Dante save them both before it's too late?

FBI Special Agents Monica Davenport and Luke Dante are sent to the quiet town of Jasper, Mississippi. Although the modi operandi are different, it soon becomes clear that the two murders there are linked - by the notes from the killer and by the victims' fear. When the next woman goes missing, Lavery receives a call and a man's voice whispers, 'What scares you?"

Luke has never had a chance to watch Monica work on a profile before and he's amazed at the way she gets into the killer's head, retracing steps at the crime scenes, understanding the fierce need to stir terror in the victims. The killer is now totally focused on Monica. Finally, he's found someone who understands. Someone who knows the thrill of the hunt. 

The sheriff thinks that the killer will flee but Monica knows that running isn't an option for him. She doesn't think he fears getting caught - that's not what scares him. She thinks the bastard is playing a game - has been from the beginning and he's not going to stop until the game ends.

Art gallery curator Joy Montgomery has never liked her body's generous curves and she's always been too shy to explore her wild side but tonight, everything is going to change ...

Desperate to save her job, Joy approaches bad-boy artist Ash Hunter and asks him to exhibit his erotic work at her gallery. Ash agrees on one condition: Joy must pose as his model. But business soon turns to pleasure, as Joy experiences a passion beyond her wildest imaginings and Ash finds more than just inspiration in his voluptuous new muse.

Lady Alessandra, half Italian, has a fiery, passionate nature, tempered by her cool British half. After the death of her husband, she has fled Italy to escape dark rumours of her involvement with a radical group. She scales the heights of London's Polite Society, but with the arrival of Italian scholar Frederico Bellazoni, she knows that her dark past has followed her to England.

Lord James Pierson, famed for his career in the British army, senses that the lovely lady is running from something. Drawn to her beauty and vulnerability, Lord James soon learns her secret, and vows to protect her. Yet even his help may not be enough to extricate her from Bellazoni's maniacal plans.

Davina Montgomery's father provided the finest soldiers to guard his beloved daughter. But when an army attacks Davina and sets fire to the chapel that houses her, she knows one thing for certain: someone she trusts has betrayed her. Unwilling to cower defenselessly, she grabs a sword and fights her way out. Just as the flames are about to claim her, however, a dark warrior crashes in and plucks her from the inferno. Even though this brutish Highlander saved her life, Davina is unwilling to trust him. After all, he is a brutish Highlander. 

Rob MacGregor couldn't care less about Lady Davina Montgomery, much less her beloved England. But he couldn't bear to see this lass come to harm, even though her fiery tongue and her kissable lips make him want to both throttle her and make love to her. Torn between the need to protect her at any cost and the undeniable truth that sheltering her brings danger to his own clan, Rob is forced to choose between love and duty.

Wow, what a fantastic giveaway! I just finished one of the best historical romances I've read in quite a while: 'Seduce Me At Sunrise' by Lisa Kleypas. Kleypas is always a winner for me, but this book - and the fantastic, dark & tortured hero - was exceptionally enjoyable. You won't want to miss this one.

Where are these Highlanders? I have been to the Highlands and granted I am happily married but I did not see a single Highlander that look like the guys in any of these HIghlander books. Granted it isn't 200 years or mare in the past so there are fewer hot guys doing manual labor while dressed in kilts. Okay that's my comnent. GFC, Tweeter and Facebook follower!
Last truly great book read Chloe Neill Friday Night Bites.
Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust
