Hachette's Mother's Day Romance Giveaway!

April 29, 2010

Boy, am I excited to be able to offer this up to y'all!! Hachette Book Group has a six-book package for THREE of you to win! The books (& blurbs):
  1. Montana Destiny by R.C. Ryan
  2. Emergency medic Marilee Trainor likes her freedom and lives for trouble. But when she stumbles upon a clue to the legendary McCord gold, she 's suddenly in a mysterious killer's sights--and the arms of irresistible playboy Wyatt McCord. This McCord cousin has been everywhere, yet the ranch is the only place he feels at home. Now Marilee's courage and independence make him want to protect her, win her heart, and finally settle down. But trust is the one thing Wyatt and Marilee can't easily give. And their survival and everything they cherish depends on whether they can surrender to each other--to fight for their... Montana Destiny
  3. Ravished by a Highlander by Paula Quinn
  4. Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she's been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown's most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal--and a bold rescue--land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul. As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he's not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire...and desperate for more. With Davina's secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can't live without.
  5. Still the One by Robin Wells
  6. After Katie Charmaine's husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she's always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town . . . with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago. Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn't felt in years. But he's in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and-worst of all-pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to each other?
  7. Desire Me by Robyn DeHart
  8. The Legend Hunters . . . The Men of Solomon's meet in secret, their very existence only a rumor among the best of Victorian society. They are treasure hunters, men of wealth and title, seekers of myths and legends. And no legend is as mystifying as the lost city of Atlantis . . .

    Years ago, Maxwell Barrett found a map to Atlantis and dedicated his life to the search for the mystical lost continent. But when an alluring woman makes a wager for the priceless artifact, he may have discovered an even greater treasure. A descendant of Atlantis, Sabine Tobias needs the map to decipher an ancient prophecy. What she doesn't need are the sparks flying between her and Max. He's too devilishly charming to be trusted: The fate of her people is at stake as well as her heart. Yet a ruthless killer also covets the map. Now Max and Sabine must race to decode the prophecy's riddle before this criminal fulfills his deadly mission.
  9. Knight of Passion by Margaret Mallory
  10. Renowned beauty Lady Linnet is torn between two desires: revenge on those who destroyed her family or marriage to her childhood sweetheart Sir James Rayburn. One fateful night, she makes a misguided choice: she sacrifices Jamie's love for a chance at vengeance. Jamie Rayburn returns to England in search of a virtuous wife-only to find the lovely Linnet as bewitching as ever. Their reckless affair ignites anew, even hotter than before, although Jamie vows to never again trust her with his heart. Then just as Linnet begins to make amends, she's tempted by one last opportunity to settle old scores. But a final retribution could cost her Jamie's love - this time forever.
  11. To Surrender to a Rogue by Cara Elliott
  12. An expert in antiquities, Lady Alessandra della Giamatti arrives in Bath to excavate newly discovered Roman ruins-only to find herself caught in a web of evil intrigue by a blackmailer threatening to expose her scandalous past. The one man who can help her is Lord James "Black Jack" Pierson, a fellow member of the expedition and a sinfully handsome rogue whose tempting presence ignites a different sort of danger.

    Jack has clashed with Alessandra in the past, so when she suddenly surrenders her body he can't help being suspicious. Is she a scheming temptress? Or is she truly a lady in trouble? As desire and deceptions swirl around them, Alessandra and Jack must find a way to win each other's trust. For if they don't work together to uncover a shocking truth, their enemy-and their own simmering passions-may destroy them and everything they cherish.

Remembering all Moms...Happy Mother's Day!

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. … And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

I Corinthians 13:4-8, 13 NIV

This year has been particularly hard for me as a mother. I have an 8 year old daughter that is having anger issues and we are set to start counseling. My thought is that mother's should not think that they have to handle all of their problems on their own. I realize that I cannot handle her and want to give her the best life I can, so I am going to get help. She knows that she will be meeting with a counselor, and she is excited. I am hoping that this will make our relationship stronger.

I ♥ Book Gossip said...

Mother's Day this year will be really sweet. WHY? Cause I plan to make my mom breakfast and a handmade card. I get tired of wondering what I should get the coolest mom on earth, so why not go old school and make her something instead. Food is always great :)

mountie9 said...

Thanks for the chance to win.

I love Mother's Day since my kids usually make me something and take me out for breakfast. However, it is also hard because my mom is gone and I miss her!

Motherhood isn't for wimps!

Mishel (P.S. I Love Books) said...

Awesome giveaway Drey.

Without getting too personal and sappy and what not I want to tell my mom something on here that I probably won't be able to tell her to her face this year...

"Mom, I don't think I'll ever be able to express how much you mean to me. I know you've been the best mother you can be. But now it's my turn to be a mom. You have to let me go so I can have a family. I'll never ever leave you and I think you know that deep down. I just wish you'd be the mom I needed right now, the mom I'm going to be for my daughter when the time comes...I'll love you no mattter what."

*sigh* i do love my mother

traveler said...

I wish that my mother was with me now so that I could tell her how much I miss her and need her counsel and love. She is no longer with us and I pine for her advice. Thanks for this lovely giveaway. rojosho(at)hotmail(dot)com

My mother is my best friend. She just stopped by with a gallon of milk and cookies for my kids when they get home from school. How awesome is that? I don't know what I would do without her.

What a great bunch of books, 2 of which are on my BTB list! Would love to win one of those prize packages here!

My mom passed away over 16 years ago. Due to her illness, she stayed with me in my home for the last 5 months of her life. I was glad I had room for her to stay with me during that time.

I didn't have a close relationship with my mother until I was in my early 30's when it seemed like we finally understood each other. The same is true of my relationship with my own daughter. Erika is 42 now and it wasn't until she got married in '93 that we grow close and could talk without blowing up at each other. It's a shame we all couldn't work out our differences earlier but we eventually did and our relationships were better for it.

Bookie said...

My mom is an awesome single mom who continues to do so much for us. I don't know what I'd do without her. I hope all the mom's out there have a fantastic Mother's Day. =)

Saying Hi to my step-mom, who is the most wonderfullest, bestest, awesomest stepmom in the whole wide world. (Or mom, for that matter)Sometimes life gives you a bum deal but then makes up for it by sending someone like Bea into your life. She really is an Angel.


s7anna said...

Shout-out to my Mum - my one constant in a chaotic world...She's been my anchor and kept me grounded whenever I wanted to let go and just not go on anymore.

I love my mother and can truly say she is one of my best friends. She doesn't have the best of health, suffering with lupus and I pray for her daily!
I also wish that I could know the joy of celebrating a mothers day as a mother. My husband and I have been battling infertility for four years.

My mom is awesome, she taught me to be the person I am today... the person I am teaching my daughter to be... *Sniff* I love my Mom more than anything in this world. As a mom myself, I now see what she gave up in life for me to have what I wanted, lol.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I love Mother's Day. It is my Free Day. My mom lives near so we sleep in until as late as we want, my DH watching my son who gets up with the sun. We go out to eat just the two of us and get pedicures. That is my present from my DH, a day to myself and my mom and my treat to her. Then we all have a nice homecooked dinner with my DH!


rubynreba said...

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. My mother has passed away and I always miss her more than over on that day. I am a mother and I don't think I ever knew how much I meant to my mother until I had kids of my own.

Nancye said...

My mom is my best friend. We are very close. Luckily we live just a few miles apart and talk everyday and see each other often. I am beyond blessed to have such an amazing mom! Thanks mom for everything!! I LOVE YOU!!

Mom, you will always be my best friend. You have always been there for me in my most troubled of times as well as my victories. Your calls every evening at 6 PM wanting to know why I was still in the classroom helped me to remember that I have a mother who loves me and that I did have a life outside of the classroom. You were with me when my grandson -your first great grandchild - was born two months premature. I am certain that you had something to do with my daughter calling me up last week and wanting me to be part of her life and her son's life. I know that you will be with me when I fly to see them on Mother's Day and see my grandson for the first time in over two years. I thank you for comforting me on all of these nights when the pain from the systemic lupus, the rheumatoid arthritis, the osteoporosis, and the diverticulitis is more than I can handle even with the medications. Even though you left your earthly bonds almost eight years ago, I actually still feel your presence at those times when I am most in need and see you in the shimmering night stars that I still love to watch. Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I will always love you and someday hope to be with you again.

I used to not like my mom at ALL. This was during my teenage years, and we all know how those were! But now that I'm 19, I've began to appreciate my mom more and more. She takes care of me no matter what.

Thanks for the giveaway!

My mother is dealing with the serious illness of her youngest and while I'm doing my small part to help, there's nothing like the love and patient care only a mother can give to her child (albeit fully-grown).

I'm the author of one of the giveaway books, Still the One, and I'm so glad you're featuring it on this site! It's about romance and motherhood (yes, they can co-exist!) and the complexity of relationships-- especially mother-daughter relationships. I hope the winners enjoy the book, and I hope everyone enjoys a wonderful, love-filled Mother's Day!

I am just thankful that I still have my mom, for she is 86 years old. She has been a great mom. One that loves me for who I am, and didn't try to change me. She also never interfers in my life. Here's to you mom, Happy Mother's Day.


Debbie F said...

My mom is the best! My best friend and she has always been there for me! I just hope that I can be as good a mom as she has been to me! Thanks

When my Dad passed in 1990, one of his last requests was for me to always take care of my Mom. It was just the two of us after that until I met the man I married in 2002. I told him up front that where I go, my Mom goes and if that wasn't to his liking, then we weren't meant to be a couple. Well, it's 8 years later and I thankfully have my beautiful, sweet 76 year old Mom and am still married. I love my Mom dearly and thank the Lord He gave her to only me.

Emma said...

I have no thoughts but depressed.

My mother passed away a week ago before mother's day in a car accident.

I have no words.

Deb K said...

I recently lost my Mom to cancer so this will be my first one without her..It will be hard but I know that she will be looking down at me with a smile!

I love and miss you Mom~Happy Mother's Day in Heaven!
