Fab Giveaway! THE WAY LOVE GOES
by Virna DePaul!


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Virna DePaul takes readers back to Green Valley in THE WAY LOVE GOES.  The contemporary Home To Green Valley series is about to get hotter!  Irish smooth talker Conor O’Neill is known for his playboy ways but one meeting with Madlyn Sanchez rocks his world.  Together, Con and Maddie discover The Way Love Goes.  Ms. DePaul hopes you enjoy Con and Madlyn’s love story as much as she loved writing it!


A middle child of five Irish brothers, Conor O’Neill always enjoyed life footloose and fancy free. Then Con’s mother dies and he’s never felt so lost. With his oldest brother, Con explores new possibilities in Green Valley, California, where his mother grew up. Finding inspiration in the great, wide Pacific, Con opens a surf shop in nearby Timber Cove where he meets the classiest lass he’s ever seen.

Madlyn Sanchez is surprised when the Irish surfer seems to take a liking to her. Older than him, a high-strung wedding planner, she couldn’t be more different than Conor. But the two have one thing in common—they’re both looking to start over. Before Madlyn knows it, they kick off an unlikely, passionate romance. But when Madlyn’s responsibilities in San Francisco can no longer be ignored, she kisses Con goodbye and wishes him well.

Missing Madlyn more than he ever thought possible, knowing he’s let one too many opportunities pass him by, Conor closes up shop to go after her. In San Francisco, however, he discovers the truth behind Madlyn’s real life—a child and an ex-husband still in residence. Con just learned to commit to one woman—can he commit to a child as well?

In no time at all, mother and son have Conor’s heart. But can an Irish rogue who once cherished his freedom convince the love of his life he’s more than ready to put down roots while still teaching her to fly?

GIVEAWAY! What Love Can Do by Virna DePaul Excerpt Tour!


New York Times Bestselling Author Virna DePaul is excited to introduce readers to her latest heroes, the five Irish O’Neill brothers!  What Love Can Do begins the Home to Green Valley series with eldest son Quinn O’Neill traveling to California’s wine country to learn more about his mother’s past.  The last thing Quinn expects to find is Love! The trouble may be holding on to the woman of his dreams. Find out if this sexy Irish hero can save his happily-ever-after in What Love Can Do.


Ireland has always been home for the five O’Neill brothers, but several tragedies, including the recent death of their mother, have them feeling lost. After making an unexpected discovery, eldest son and former rugby player Quinn O’Neill heads to Forestville, California, in the enchanted river valley where his mother grew up. There, he hopes to learn more about his family and explore the possibility of settling someplace new.

Traveling the world before opening her own bakery is Lillian Parker’s dream, and she’s one step closer to achieving it after winning an internship with a world-famous pastry chef in Miami. Unfortunately, Lillian’s mother is pressuring her to stay in Forestville and help run the family B&B. Then a handsome Irishman blows through the door with charm and sex appeal to spare, and suddenly Lillian’s not sure what she wants.

Sparks instantly fly, and Lillian finds herself agreeing to show Quinn around the area. Soon their building feelings have them wishing for more time together. But Quinn’s just beginning to explore the magic of Green Valley wine country, and Lillian needs to stretch her wings. Even worse, exposed secrets pit Lillian’s family against Quinn’s, creating thorns in their blooming love.

Can passion survive conflicting family loyalties? And can love bond Quinn and Lillian together forever when dreams of adventure versus home and hearth threaten to keep them apart?



After an eleven-hour flight from Dublin to New York City, a layover, then another six-hour flight to San Francisco, plus car rental and driving time, the last thing Quinn expected was for his balls to tighten upon seeing the blond American woman working in the dining room of the Russian River House. She was quite possibly the most gorgeous girl he’d ever seen. Holy shite.

But damn, he was bushed and desperately needed a bed.

The last ten days had taken a huge toll on him. From the moment his mother had died to the day he’d called Richard Phillips, his maternal grandfather, to inform him that his daughter, Maggie Phillips O’Neill had passed away suddenly, only to get a hostile, “I don’t have a daughter named Maggie, nor do I have a grandson. Only two daughters here in Forestville,” Quinn had been doing his best to keep his spirits up. Old man Phillips might have kept his mam away with his belligerent attitude, but it wasn’t going to work on him. He had the right to know where Mam had grown up, see the sidewalks she had walked, the river she had loved, and the valley she’d adored.

Con had been a bit less eager to make the trip, saying Mam had made her choice to leave Green Valley and had been all the better for it, but Quinn had pestered Con into coming with him for a few reasons. One, to try and snap him out of his funk. Two, to get him out of Brady’s hair—they’d been bickering like chickens the last ten days, more than usual. And finally, to help him find closure over Mam’s death. Of course, that was something all his brothers needed, but Brady, Sean and Riley had obligations that needed tending. After they’d all agreed to cremate Mam’s body (despite his initial belief that Mam should be buried, Con, after reading Mam’s journal, had changed his mind), Brady, Sean and Riley agreed that Quinn and Con should journey to America first. If they still felt at the end of one week that it was what Mam would have wanted, they’d call the others, who’d then join them to spread her ashes.

Quinn felt optimistic it would all work out as it should. And while he hadn’t shared this with his brothers, he’d decided that if he liked it here, he’d extend his trip. If he didn’t, he’d return to Ireland like a good Irish boy ought to do.

So far, he was liking what he saw right in the dining room. 

Once again, Quinn glanced at the hot blond American, an amazing gazelle of a woman, even as the innkeeper droned on about things to do in the area, the bookstore down the street, the diner around the corner with the homemade cherry pie, and the winery next door. The blonde—she was tall and a bit curvy, just the way he liked—kept stealing glances at him while the older woman talked. Her hair was up in a messy bun like she’d just run circles. She had a smooth, angular face with high cheekbones that gave her the look of an old-fashioned pin up with a naughty side. Then again, maybe his imagination was running wild. After all, she wore a pink and black apron that read: Life is Short—Lick the Bowl.

“I’d be happy to. Just show me where it is,” Con said, deepening his voice, as he stared straight at her chest. 

Quinn smacked his arm. “You going to start right away, are you?”

 The innkeeper with the sunken cheekbones gave him dour looks. And they said Americans were friendly.

“I apologize for my brother. He’s shattered and in dire need of a nap. That was completely uncalled for,” he stage-whispered.

“No offense taken.” The young woman smiled cheekily then turned and walked into a small alcove through the dining room. From where Quinn stood, it appeared she was sorting a variety of breakfast quick breads into plastic storage bags. What he would give to try her muffins.

Giveaway! SPIRIT RETURNED by Cyndi Faria!


Award winning Author Cyndi Faria is back with her successful 
Whisper Cove series! 


Spirit Returned reunites former lovers Mason and Katrina for a magical journey. The two are challenged with breaking the curse that haunts the families of Whisper Cove. But, can their love overcome the heartache of their past?

“Faria’s Whisper Cove series blends compelling suspense with an engaging romance!”
-New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Virna DePaul

Open your heart to the road home...


The exciting continuation of the Whisper Cove series continues with Mason and Katrina's story....

Mason Jayme is rumored to be a healer and the one prophesized to save his hometown of Whisper Cove from an ancient Lover’s Curse. Until that curse is broken, however, he has no business taking a lover—a lesson harshly learned after Mason sleeps with his first love, Katrina Rendon. Believing he’s the reason Katrina was burned and scarred, Mason leaves Whisper Cove, rejecting any notion he can be good for anyone, let alone a whole town.

Katrina was far more devastated by Mason’s rejection than the injuries she sustained in a fire. She wants nothing to do with him—until her father falls ill, and the only way to save him is with Mason’s healing skills. When Mason returns to Whisper Cove, he promises not only to help her father but to help Katrina open her burn victim retreat. Once reunited, the passion between Katrina and Mason sparks higher than ever.

But, when Katrina’s soul is threatened by an Original Spirt who has claimed Mason’s body as his own, she’s caught in a whirlwind of spirit possessions and secret rituals. This time, Mason’s ready to risk death by fire in order to save Katrina and their love.

Determined to find her inner sex diva, Melina Parker enlists her childhood friend, Max Dalton, to tutor her after hours. Instead, she ends up in the wrong bed and gets a lesson in passion from Max's twin brother, Rhys Dalton, a man Melina's always secretly wanted but never thought she could have.

(Bedding The Bad Boy, Book #2) 

This bad boy is ready to work some magic...

Identical twin and Las Vegas performer Max Dalton has always been the number one bad boy in his family, and he's appreciated the women and fame that comes along with his reputation.

Grace Sinclair is on a mission when she comes to Vegas, one that involves asking Max, her best friend's brother-in-law, to give her the pleasure no man's ever been able to. She suspects Max has more layers than he lets people see, but she's determined to keep her heart safe even as she offers him her body.

What neither of them plan on is love--or the triangle the media stirs up with Max's blonde bombshell actress friend.

Will Grace see beyond Max's bad boy facade long enough to trust him with her heart? And will Max figure out what he really wants before he loses the one woman who makes him believe in love again?

Accept Jamie's make-believe marriage proposal, and be seen as the type of mother her niece deserves. Respectable. Controlled. Willing to play the game.

With her faux-fiancé by her side, Lucy exchanges dirty martinis and leather for champagne and silk. But when the passion between Lucy and Jamie only grows greater, they have to make a choice: back away from each other and not get hurt...or risk everything for the kind of love money can't buy.
