For What It’s Worth Reviews Whirlwind

Today’s tour stop is at For What It’s Worth. Karen analyzes and reviews Whirlwind:

“Typically these type of insta-love stories don’t work for me but I enjoyed Melissa and Jason’s romance. It could be because Mitch is Melissa’s best friend so I felt his brother Jason wasn’t just some random guy popping up out of nowhere. She has chatted with Jason on line before, she has met his parents already so I could see where there would be a comfort level already established.”

What do you think? Is love at first sight something you like? Comment on the post at For What It’s Worth, and you could win an autographed copy of Whirlwind.

Jason McAlister on My Book Boyfriend

I’ve been asked many times for a photo of Jason (the hero of Whirlwind), but whenever I start looking, I get distracted by all the sexy models and their well-defined…muscles. However, Missie at The Unread Reader has stepped up to the challenge and found a model who is not only SIZZLING, but looks a LOT like my Jason.

…but you need to see him on her blog! CLICK HERE TO SEE THE JASON HAWTNESS!

Watch for even more Whirlwind fun on the Whirlwind Blog Tour. Hosted by – you guessed it – The Unread Reader! We’ve got some great stops planned and a ton of giveaways. Come tour with Whirlwind!

Only a Few More Days to Win

Memorial Day Flags

Happy Memorial Day

So many have fallen in the name of freedom. Thank you to those who’ve given everything, and to those who continue to give in our armed services. One day isn’t enough to say thank you!

In addition to remembrance ceremonies today, Memorial day is the unofficial start to the American Summer. Grills all across the country will be fired up today, cooking everything from hamburgers to fish, vegetables to watermelon (we’re going to try that today). We probably won’t eat outside, but are planning a picnic-style spread, nonetheless.

Another Memorial Day tradition is, of course, a sale. And All Romance eBooks is doing just that. Through the end of today, they’re offering a 50% rebate on ALL PURCHASES. This means that when you purchase Whirlwind at allromanceebooks.com, you’ll get 50% of the purchase price returned in the form of a rebate! Half price…who doesn’t love that?

But FREE is Better!

Only a few more hours are left in the Share the Wealth Giveaway! Winner gets their pick of 5 books from the following list, one runner up gets 2 (along with signed copies of Whirlwind for both winners). US addresses only.

Which would you pick? Remember, a comment on this, or any of my May posts, counts as an entry. Winners will be selected on June first.

Photo Friday

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I have to embarrass my children. Here’s a shot from long ago…DANGER! CUTENESS ALERT!

Okay, even I went, “Awwwwww.” 😀 My babies are both teenagers now, so there won’t be any cuddling like this (unless they’re wrestling). But, babies or not, I’m blessed to call them mine.

This Sunday’s holiday may be about mothers, but I celebrate my children every day. I love you guys!

Are you planning anything for Mother’s Day? Do you celebrate it where you live? Comment on the blog and Share the Wealth!
