How about a free best-selling book as a Thanksgiving present? Everyone who leaves a comment will get a FREE copy of THE MARRIAGE LIST, my spicy contemporary novella that was on the Amazon Top 100 for six months, my Thanksgiving gift to you. Giveaway ends Monday night at 7pm, Eastern time.
Here's a bit about the book:
 Can happily ever after start with a list? Grey Andrews thinks so. After ten years of working, saving and investing, Grey finally achieved a level of wealth that allows him to do what he wants with his life. He needs a woman to share it with, but not any woman, the perfect woman. A woman who has the three essential qualities on his marriage list. But after three years of searching he isn’t any closer to finding her than he was when he started out.
 Carrie Tucker, an aspiring mystery writer and divorcée struggling to make it in the world of advertising, turned her focus from men to her career after dating too many creeps and losers. She’s finally earned her big break, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the first female creative director in a hot New York ad agency. So what if it means working nights and weekends? It’s not like she has a social life anyway.
Is the marriage list a failure or will a chance meeting at a fiction-writing conference prove the list to be the key to Grey’s happiness after all?
 Next comes the novella, THE LOVE LIST. A bit about the book: 
Can the swinging bachelor change his ways and become a devoted, selfless and faithful man overnight? Grey's marriage list brought them together. But when Carrie starts her own list, can Grey incorporate her ideas about love into his life? Family issues, jealousy and an icy lake threaten to destroy the happiness Carrie and Grey have found together. An argument, a holiday trip to visit family and confronting an old fear test the lovers who have pledged their love and now must learn to make it stronger every day.

The latest in the series, full length novel, THE DATING LIST! 
A little bit about the book:

Is Leah the woman of his dreams or a heartbreaker in disguise? Colin Andrews is blown away by her beauty, creativity and sophistication. However Leah has other plans that don’t include shepherding a younger man through an intense love affair. Taken by his charm but committed to her new career overseas, Leah is caught between desire and destiny.
The wedding of Carrie Tucker and Grey Andrews is on track, scheduled for late June. Grey, Colin’s big brother, is confident nothing can take his beloved fiancée from him. But family secrets and lies threaten their union. Is Grey the consummate lover Carrie fell for or the ultimate deceiver, as her mother claims?
Will the Andrews men win their hearts’ desires or will their happy endings end up just out of reach?

Here's a snippet from my WIP, Under the Midnight Moon, the third in the Moonlight series of sweet contemporary romances. It will be published in February.

     At six o’clock, Mindy awoke from her nap with a start as the kitchen timer buzzed loudly. She dashed into the kitchen and turned off the oven. Looking at her watch, she realized she had wanted to take a shower and change before dinner. She disappeared into the den and emerged with her shower paraphernalia. Scampering up the steps at a good clip, she collided with Drew, who was exiting the bathroom, wearing only a towel wrapped around his waist, Mindy found herself with her hands on his bare chest and embarrassment creeping up her chest. She stared at the firm muscles and the light covering of blond hair between her fingers. Glancing up she noticed his smooth face.
            “You shaved.”
            “Yeah, that scruffy stuff looks better on the guys with dark hair than on me. I think women like to look at that, but would rather kiss a smooth-shaven man,” mischief glittered in his blue eyes.
            She giggled. “Probably right.” The tingle shooting up her arms came directly from her fingertips on his chest and she had no intention of removing them quickly. They stood still, facing each other. He placed his hands on her waist.
            “Aren’t you getting cold?” She asked.
            “Not with you standing so close.” He chuckled.
            She ran her hands down his stomach to the towel then back up to his shoulders. He stepped back, holding her away from his body.
            “If you’re going to do that…I’m not going to be responsible for my actions.”
            She grinned.
            "If I don’t let go and get dressed…”
            “What? You’ll seduce me?” She asked.
            “Ravage you, overcome your will with passion,” he teased.
            God, I want him. He’s so…so…sexy. Her mouth went dry as their gazes held. Motionless and silent they stood there, staring. In one quick motion, Drew pushed her to one side and retreated to his bedroom, closing the door. She wiped the sweat off her palms on her pants while trying to bring her breathing back to normal. Mindy stepped into the bathroom and closed the door. One glance in the mirror told her what she didn’t want to know; her cheeks were pink, her face flushed with desire, with need. She peeled her clothes off quickly and jumped into the shower. She could wash the sweat off her body but not the passion for Drew Armstrong out of her heart.
