Yep. This one is ALL about the covers. The ones that just make you gasp and go..oh my, I NEED this book. Now! Those that are truly…covergasm-worthy. Stop by each blog to check out their favorites! There will be a giveaway at each stop plus a grand prize giveaway of an Amazon Gift Card! Happy Hopping!
I’m a sucker for a good cover myself. I love getting new covers from my publishers and I love playing around in Photoshop creating some myself. So I will happily show off the new cover from my upcoming Night with a SEAL.
The book will launch my new Romantic Suspense series, Hot SEALs, and will debut in a SEAL-themed multi-author box set late July (fingers crossed!).
It will also be available for individual purchase a couple of months later, when Book 2 in the Hot SEALs series, Saved by a SEAL, will also release. I have a busy and exciting summer ahead of me!
Here’s the cover and below that, information on how you can COMMENT TO WIN my prize! Enter to be the very first to get your hands on an eARC of Night with a SEAL.
Ten years of dedication to the Navy taught SEAL Jon Rudnick one thing—he’s not afraid to risk life and limb for his country. But when navigating military red tape begins to present more challenges than the enemy it makes Jon question his future. So does Alison Cressly, the woman who doesn’t do one-night stands or SEALs but who broke both rules with Jon the eve of his deployment to Afghanistan. He can’t get her out of his head—not while away and not now that he’s back.
When Ali’s life is threatened and military rules won’t allow him to intervene, Jon decides it’s time to take back control. The question is what would a SEAL do as a civilian? Jon’s got skills, drive and an idea, as well as a few teammates willing to cover his six. And he’s got the hope of more with Ali.
A team of sexy SEALs, a terrorist threat, and an attraction that can’t be denied . . . it all comes together in this launch of the new Hot SEALs romantic suspense series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling contemporary romance author Cat Johnson.
THE FINE PRINT: One prize will be awarded to a single winner. Contest for the digital Night with a SEAL closes June 13, 11:59 PM ET. Comments must be made prior to then to be considered. One winner will be chosen from the comments on this post using Random.org and contacted by email. Winner’s name will be posted here June 14. International entries welcome.
Because release days make authors crazy, and because Amazon ranks books that have more reviews higher than those that don’t, I’ve decided I’m having a spur of the moment giveaway to thank the first 35 readers who take the time to read the book and post their review to Amazon.com US during release week.
What is this special thank you gift? The very fridge magnet Tara sees on Tuck and Becca’s fridge in the below scene in Chapter 4! (Yes, this makes book number 3 I’ve written Joseph’s Fine Foods fried bologna into!)
She glanced at the stove and made a face at how long the hot water was taking. It was true—a watched pot didn’t boil. She wandered over to the refrigerator. Might as well get out the milk she’d need for her tea. As she reached for the handle, a brightly colored orange magnet caught her eye. She squinted at the magnet’s text, promoting the place in Drumright that had catered Tuck and Becca’s wedding, and the restaurant’s famous fried bologna sandwich.
Tara shook her head and laughed. Tuck and his fried bologna. Her brother was nuts about the stuff.
About to yank the door open, Tara noticed what was held under that fridge magnet. She froze with her hand on the handle and her stomach in knots. Staring back at her, eye level, were the smiling faces of Logan and Emma in their wedding photo.
Becca’s newly married sister now lived just a few miles away with the man Tara had loved since she could walk. Emma had stolen Logan from her and married him just weeks ago.
Tara flashed back to the last time she’d spoken to him. She remembered standing in his parents’ kitchen on the day of his wedding, professing her love to him and begging him not to get married. Logan had said he’d never love Tara that way then left her there alone and went to get married.
In a nutshell, that was why she couldn’t live at Tuck and Becca’s during her internship. In spite of all the things in the plus column for Tara staying with them between events for the next three weeks, there was one big—huge—reason why she couldn’t and it was staring her right in the face from beneath the Joseph’s Fine Foods magnet.
“Why are you cussing at my fridge?” Tuck’s gruff morning voice came from behind Tara.
12/21/13 UPDATE: THE HOP IS NOW CLOSED. MY PRIZE WINNER IS Linda Rimer-Como. GRAND PRIZE WINNER NAME TBA. THANKS ALL!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
As we count down to Christmas, I’m still scrambling to finish my shopping, but I find I keep seeing things I want for myself! Don’t you hate when that happens?! The one item I’m haunted by is a cashmere throw. It’s crazy expensive. I don’t need it, but I WANT it! I keep imagining myself sitting at my computer, the soft cashmere in my lap, light as a cloud even as it warms me while I work…. So far I’ve satisfied myself with just fantasizing about this indulgence. We’ll see if it remains a fantasy or if in a moment of weakness, or after an over-indulgence of spiked eggnog, I give in.
While shopping online, these sweaters on Amazon have given me a good laugh. The naughty girl in me wants to wear one to Christmas dinner and see if the in-laws notice. Look closely or you might miss the humping reindeer or peeing santa 😉

She’s promoting one of her Purgatory Masters series books that features a former military hero, Levi’s Ultimatum, and I’m promoting Uniform Desires.

UPDATE 10/2/20013 THE WINNER OF MY BLOG PRIZE IS Brenda M.! Thanks to all the commenters!
Summer is coming to an end, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, because the end of summer means the beginning of fall. Crisp cool weather. Shorter days and longer nights. Kids busy with school work and hopefully more time for mom to snuggle in with a good book.
The big publishers must realize this too because they hold their powerhouse mega releases for the autumn months leading up to the holiday season. Even my publishers are putting out my new releases, (which are not powerhouse mega releases I assure you!) during this post-summer time period and for four months in a row, from September through December, I have one new release each month.
Below is the lineup of what’s coming from me from now through the end of the year, all on preorder so you can wake up to them on release day and find they were delivered to your eReader, effort free.
MY PRIZE: To celebrate my new releases, and the wrapping up of the Red, Hot & Blue series, I’ll be giving one lucky commenter on this post a download of one of my Red, Hot & Blue series backlist eBook titles that are available now. (Winner’s Choice of one of the following eBooks: Trey, Jack, Jimmy, Jared, Cole, Bobby, A Few Good Men, Model Soldier, or A Prince Among Men.)
TO ENTER TO WIN MY BLOG PRIZE, TELL ME IN THE COMMENTS ON THIS POST, WHAT UPCOMING RELEASE ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS FALL? Note: It doesn’t have to be one of mine 🙂

One winner will be chosen using Random.org from the comments left on this post during the duration of the hop (11:59 PM eastern time September 16 through 11:59 PM eastern time September 30th).
