New Year's Blog Hop with a GIVEAWAY!


Welcome to the New Year’s blog hop!

This New Year is decidedly different for me, as opposed to all the other New Year's I’ve lived through, lol. This is the first time I will ring in the year as a PUBLISHED author. Yes, I capitalized that because I have always been an author at heart, just not a published one, lol. 
I had the honor this year of landing a contract with Breathless Press for my novella Forbidden Angel. The Holocaust Romance released on December 7, 2012. It’s truly wonderful (as I’m sure a lot of you know) to look on Amazon and see a book you wrote available for the world to buy!
Not only am I ringing in the New Year as a published author, but as a MULTI-PUBLISHED author! I just signed my second contract with the wonderful Secret Cravings Publishing for my Erotic Military Romance. Soldier in Chains is set to release in May of 2013. 
This past year has been such a blessing!

Here's a little bit about my recent release.

Buy Links:
Breathless Press

Blurb:

When captured by the Nazi's, Sarah finds herself in a concentration camp that not only brings her closer to death...but closer to love.

Sarah Brenner, a young Jewish woman, is terrified when she finds herself in the heat of a railcar bound for a work camp in Nazi Germany. For years she, along with her mother and sister, had hidden from the SS, but no one could hide forever. Her hatred for those who have enslaved them is ever-growing, especially when they arrive and she encounters the shockingly handsome Nazi doctor who can’t seem to keep his eyes—or hands—off her.

Aurel Rothstein is not your everyday concentration camp physician. The endless prisoners and lack of care he's allowed to give have made him numb to the work he so coveted. It isn’t until he comes face to face with a beautiful prisoner that his heart becomes involved with his job—a forbidden and fatal move to any Nazi.

When a vile soldier takes direct interest in Sarah, she will be forced to make a choice that will change her life forever: ignore the pull toward the handsome doctor or give in to the forbidden passion he awakens with only a look. Either way they both risk everything...


Now, enough about me! Let’s get to the good stuff—the PRIZES! As you know Carrie Ann does some phenomenal blog hops, in fact this one has over 200 prizes available to win! All you have to do is visit each individual blog and leave a comment.

My prize—to one lucky winner chosen by random.org—is a $5 amazon gift card! (Keep in mind that Forbidden Angel only costs $2.49 on Amazon, *hint hint*, lol okay I’ll stop, but I had to try, right?)

All you have to do is comment on this post and leave your email address (DO NOT forget to leave your email address! You will be ineligible for the GRAND PRIZES if you forget!)

Speaking of GRAND PRIZES—check out the amazing things that Carrie Ann has available for you to win! By commenting on my post you are entering yourself in my personal drawing AND the drawing for the one of these spectacular prizes. Comment on each blog in the hop and be entered over 200 times for a chance to win!
(Everything but the SWAG prize is international)

I will be announcing the winner of the $5 gift card here on my blog on January 7th. That same day that Carrie Ann will be announcing the winners of the GRAND PRIZES on her blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by! You are appreciated! Now get to hopping!

  48. Congrats on your success!! What a great way to usher in a new year.

    This year we are going to take a real family vacation. We have been married for 15 years and haven't taken the kids anywhere. Many reasons why, but this year, we are changing that. Looking for a pet friendly cabin for a week's vacation. We will do it.
    Happy New Year.
