SWEET DREAMS 2-in-1 synopsis:
Reasonable Doubt (originally published June 1988 in Harlequin Intrigue #92)

To claim her inheritance, Breanna Morgan must return to Crescent Moon. She soon discovers that prowlers, vandals and unnatural noises have invaded the isolated mining claim that has long been in her family. And her new neighbor, Tyler Ross, is not the first or the last to warn her away.

When the threats become all too real and Tyler offers his support, Breanna accepts him with open arms. Until she has cause to wonder if his choice is for her benefit, or for his own....

Without a Trace (originally published May 1989 in Harlequin Intrigue #114)

For genealogist Sarah Montague, finding an adoptee’s natural parents is routine. But in Michael De Lorio’s case, her only lead is the nightmare that haunts him—one he suspects is a terrible childhood memory.

As Michael and Sarah delve into his past, they find danger at every turn. And their only hope for life, and love, is to rebury the past and disappear without a trace.

SWEET DREAMS was originally published October 2012 as a 2-in-1 edition for HQN Books.

THE HOMECOMING synopsis:
In a small town, reputation is everything. In her latest novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr explores the burden placed on a young man returning home to face his mistakes—the first step in claiming the life he was meant to live

At the age of nineteen, Seth Sileski had everything. A superb athlete and scholar, handsome and popular, he was the pride of Thunder Point. Destined for greatness, he lost it all in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. The people in his hometown have never forgotten what might have been.

Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken. But now he’s been presented with an opportunity to return home and show his father—and the people of Thunder Point—he’s become a better, humbler version of his former self.

Winning over his father isn’t the only challenge. Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he’s finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?

Elizabeth Lowell is giving away an autographed hardcover edition of INNOCENT AS SIN!

NIGHT DIVER synopsis — On Sale NOW!:
New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell plunges into the adventurous and deadly world of underwater treasure hunters in a heart-stopping tale that superbly combines atmosphere, action, romance, and suspense.

After a family tragedy, Kate Donnelly left the Caribbean behind forever. But a series of bad management decisions has left her family’s diving and marine recovery business drowning in red ink. Now her brother pleads with her to come back to the island nation of St Vincent. Without Kate’s financial expertise, the iconic treasure-hunting enterprise started by her grandfather will go under. Unable to say no to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.

Holden Cameron was addicted to the adrenaline rush of active duty—including narrowly surviving an underwater explosives accident. The last thing the former British military diver wants is to babysit a family of thieves on a tropical island—even if they are the world-famous Diving Donnellys. But in his new civilian job, Holden must investigate the suspicious activity surrounding a Donnelly dive to recover treasure from the ancient wreck of a pirate ship.

When equipment, treasure, and even divers begin to disappear, Kate and Holden form an uneasy alliance to uncover the truth. But the deeper they plummet into the mystery, the closer they come to each other. Soon they are sharing their deepest fears and darkest secrets—and a combustible chemistry too hot to ignore.

Barn Goddess Linda Lael Miller
Picks Cowhide Checker Board Set
For DEADLY July Contest Prize

To celebrate the July reissue of DEADLY GAMBLE, First Lady of the West Linda Lael Miller has selected a prize package she’s sure her mystery sleuth, MoJo Sheepshanks, would endorse for summer fun. Mojo enjoys her gambling and would most certainly roll up this portable cowhide checker board set and seek out a worthy opponent, live or of the ghost variety—because she’s sure seeing enough of the vaguely transparent variety lately. A copy of the DEADLY GAMBLE trade paperback, as well as Mojo’s second outing in the August reissue, DEADLY DECEPTIONS, complete Linda’s July prize package.

DEADLY GAMBLE

Mojo’s got an uncanny knack for winning at slots, but her home sweet home is Bad-Ass Bert’s Biker Saloon. She’d love to go undercover with an irresistibly hot cop, but he’s got baggage as big as his biceps. Mojo survived a mysterious childhood tragedy, but she’s never quite figured out who she really is or how to get on with her life. Now the wisecracking Mojo is seeing ghosts—the ectoplasmic kind—and turning up baffling clues to her real identity. And she’ll need all her savvy and strange new talent to keep someone from burying her—and the truth—for keeps.

Diana Palmer is offering one lucky winner a signed paperback edition of PROTECTOR.

PROTECTOR synopsis:
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Diana Palmer takes readers back to Jacobsville, Texas, where Hayes Carson is a man on a mission—for justice.

Bobby Carson had been the only family Hayes had left in the world. A long, tall and serious Texan, Hayes has always suspected Minette Raynor had something to do with Bobby’s death, that the bright-eyed blonde gave his brother the drugs that killed him. As far as Hayes is concerned, neither her looks nor anything else will stand in the way of him righting this grievous wrong.

Minette can’t get handsome Hayes off her mind, or off her back. Even though his investigation of her is annoying, as an undercover DEA agent that’s the least of her worries. Minette dismisses Hayes until she finds herself in great danger, and he’s the only one who can save her. Can she count on Hayes to believe the truth—and save her life?

As Susan Elizabeth Phillips gets ready for the August 26th publication of HEROES ARE MY WEAKNESS, she is giving away an autographed mass market paperback edition of whichever of her backlist title the winner chooses.

HEROES ARE MY WEAKNESS synopsis:

Deepest winter.
An isolated island off the coast of Maine.
A man.
A woman.
Puppets. (Yes, puppets…)
And…
A mysterious house looming over the sea
. . .

He’s a reclusive writer whose imagination creates chilling horror novels. She’s a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids’ puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill his characters with his bare hands. She knows a dozen ways to kill an audience with laughs. But she’s not laughing now.

Annie Hewitt has arrived on Peregrine Island in the middle of a snowstorm and at the end of her resources. She’s broke, dispirited, but not quite ready to give up. Her red suitcases hold the puppets she uses to make her living: sensible Dilly, spunky Scamp, and Leo, the baddest of bad guys. Her puppets, the romantic novels she loves, and a little bit of courage are all she has left.

Annie couldn’t be more ill prepared for what she finds when she reaches Moonraker Cottage or for the man who dwells in Harp House, the mysterious mansion that hovers above the cottage from a windblown cliff. When she was a teenager, he betrayed her in a way she can never forget or forgive. Now they’re trapped together on a frozen island along with a lonely widow, a mute little girl, and townspeople who don’t know how to mind their own business.

Is he the villain she remembers or has he changed? Her head says no. Her heart says yes.

It’s going to be a long, hot winter.

The Earl of Westbridge is dying, and without a male heir. His daughter Mary will lose her home if she does not marry before her father passes.

Avery is the unwilling heir to the Westbridge earldom. He arrives a few days before the spring holiday in the middle of a horrific storm to offer his assistance to his distant cousin. Expecting a spinster who had been put on the shelf, he certainly never expected to develop feelings for the beautiful Mary Barrow.

Scarlet Moreno gets a panicked call from long-time friend Jason Jones, an LAPD street cop wanted for killing his girlfriend. Paranoid with no one to trust, he reaches out to Scarlet for help. Before they can figure out who set him up, a SWAT team descends, Jason runs, and Scarlet is left with questions she can’t answer when the police show up. She’s determined to prove Jason innocent, but the cops want him behind bars and someone else wants him dead. As Scarlet digs deeper into the murky case, she realizes that whoever is framing Jason wants her dead, too—and it might connect to the ambush that nearly killed her and Krista three years ago.

and RUN...

Krista Hart doesn’t want to team up with rival private detective R.J. Flynn. And she definitely doesn’t want to help an unscrupulous trial lawyer get away with murder. But when R.J. pulls her into his latest high-profile case, Krista realizes that nothing about the murder of a beautiful Laguna Beach housewife is quite what it seems. Krista sets out to uncover the truth—no matter whose side it helps—and manages to provoke all the wrong people, including a vicious murderer who won’t hesitate to kill again and then make a run.

THE BAREFOOT BRIDE
From genteel Boston to the wilds of Montana, she is searching for a safe haven for her family—and finds unexpected love.

Having lost her beloved husband, a whaling captain, to a watery grave, Molly Gallagher refuses to risk more heartbreak. Determined to keep her headstrong son from following in his father’s footsteps, she agrees to become the mail-order bride of a Montana country doctor. She tells her new husband that she can never give her love to another man; what she doesn’t tell him is that she has a young daughter and a rebellious teenage son.

Molly’s ruse might have worked, but Seth Kendrick has secrets of his own: a willful daughter determined to end the marriage before it even begins—and a double life keeping his neighbors safe from outlaws. In an untamed land of vigilante justice, Molly has no choice but to trust this gray-eyed stranger whose stubbornness matches her own, whose kisses unleash flash floods of desire—and who may be the one man in a million who could win her fiery, faithful heart.

Autumn Sommers knows the danger of ignoring such powerful omens. Twelve years earlier, she could have prevented a tragic accident if only she had acted on those horrible nightmares. This time, she knows what she has to do.

Her research into local missing persons suggests that the girl in Autumn’s dreams could be Molly, the daughter of businessman Ben McKenzie. Still emotionally shattered from his loss and unwilling to trust this stranger, Ben is angered rather than relieved to hear her theory that Molly is still alive. Certain that she may be the girl’s only chance, Autumn persists, until Ben grudgingly agrees to explore this tiny, if improbable, shred of hope.

As Autumn’s dreams become more and more vivid, she and Ben pursue their leads...leads that point to more murders, and to the only person in control of whether they live...or die.

Waterford Bowl & HARBOR ISLAND ARC

Await Carla Neggers’ July Contest Winner

Carla Neggers’ star-crossed FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan are back in July and August in two heart-stopping journeys from Boston to Ireland to the rocky coast of Maine: DECLAN’S CROSS (July 29 mass market paperback) and HARBOR ISLAND (August 26 hardcover).

As a tribute to Emma and Donovan, Carla has selected the perfect July prize package: an exquisite 8.5” Marquis Waterford Honour bowl and another gem, an Advance Reading Copy of HARBOR ISLAND. Three additional July readers will each win a copy of DECLAN’S CROSS.

DECLAN’S CROSS

Ten years ago, art was stolen from a mansion in DECLAN’S CROSS, but it has never been recovered, nor the elusive thief ever been caught. Now Emma and Colin are in the idyllic Irish seaside village visiting marine biologist Julianne Maroney when her friend goes missing. As a dark conspiracy unfolds amid the breathtaking scenery, the race is on to stop a ruthless killer, and the stakes have never been more personal for Emma and Colin.

Readers, check this value: DECLAN’S CROSS includes a $2-off coupon on August’s HARBOR POINT.

A peek at HARBOR POINT: Beach read of the summer! Emma receives a message that leads her to the body of a woman on a small island in Boston Harbor, and that ten-year-old at heist comes home to roost. Emma and her now-fiancé, Colin, must face do-or-die questions about their relationship and outsmart one of the smartest, most ruthless killers they’ve ever encountered!

Readers, more value for your dollar: HARBOR ISLAND and DECLAN’S CROSS contain a bonus read, ROCK POINT, a Sharpe & Donovan prequel novella!

Check www.CarlaNeggers.com for Sharpe & Donovan excerpts!

The Heavenly Scent of Lavender:

Sheila Roberts’ The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane Prize

As guests approach THE TEA SHOP ON LAVENDER LANE in Sheila Roberts’s delightful July Icicle Falls novel, they’re drawn to Bailey Sterling’s spoil-me retreat by the sight and scent of lavender bushes outside the picturesque Victorian building that was once a home. So the author has decided to gift the winner of her July contest with an exquisite Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender gift set as a reminder of the treasures she’ll discover on the pages of Sheila’s latest new novel from MIRA Books. As the piece de resistance, Sheila will complete her prize package with a copy of THE TEA SHOP ON LAVENDER LANE. Three additional winners will each win an earlier Icicle Falls novel.

Inside the Crabtree & Evelyn Lovely Lavender Gift Set, Sheila’s winner will find the scent in Eau de Toilette and Hand Therapy, along with a Wisteria Nail Lacquer for glossy nails.

THE TEA SHOP ON LAVENDER LANE

After a fake food poisoning dashes Bailey Sterling’s dreams of becoming a
caterer to the stars, she leaves L.A. for Icicle Falls, moves in with her sister
Cecily, and opens a tea shop on Lavender Lane. But when both sisters perk up
at the sight of the same bad boy, there’s more than tea brewing in the little shop.

This talented author is a must read for small town romance lovers. #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber writes, “Sheila Roberts makes me laugh. I read her books and come away inspired, hopeful and happy.”

For Sandra Worth’s monthly contest the lucky winner will receive something unusual: a signed Advanced Reader Copy of PALE ROSE OF ENGLAND. An ARC is almost—but not quite—a finished copy since some features may be missing, such as cover image, review quotes, etc. and ARCs are not for resale. But the content stay virtually unchanged because ARCs go out to reviewers before publication. For this reason very few are printed. For those hoping to write for a large New York publisher one day, an ARC will provide a rare peek behind the publishing scene. For those who just want a good love story, PALE ROSE OF ENGLAND delivers a look at the dramatic life of the handsome young man thought by many at the time to be the younger of the two princes in the Tower, Richard of York, and his Scottish-born princess-bride. Richard of York challenged the first Tudor king for his throne and became known to history as Perkin Warbeck.
