Desert Island Giveaway #24

Giveaway: 2 ebook copies of The Right Words and 2 ebook copies of The Penalty Box by Becky Moore
(4 winners)

Jane Porter’s life is all about fiction, but when it comes to dealing with her inconsiderate upstairs tenant, she’s all business. The cuffs are off when her noisy neighbor jolts her out of a sound sleep with a cacophony of banging thuds and her erstwhile favorite workout musicians, the Ramones. Imagine her surprise to find the offending party is not her flighty neighbor, Amber … but a sizzling, melt-your-panties Adonis, Lucas Moore.

Discouraged when a recurrent nightmare drives Lucas from another sleepless night, he figures a hard run is the perfect physical distraction to help him get back to sleep. But half an hour into his groove, pounding on the door stops him in his tracks. Who knew opening it would change the course of his life. Yet, one look at the breath-taking woman demanding entrance put his whole body on alert—and a serious strain on his self-imposed celibacy.

Can a dangerous, ex-government agent and a friendly, outgoing writer have anything in common other thancombustible physical attraction? And when the flames of passion are banked, can Lucas and Jane trust the tentative bond they’re building beyond the bedroom? Sometimes, the right words can make all the difference in the world.

Justin Mangum, otherwise known as “The Monk,” has just turned the National Hockey League on its ear with his announcement of retirement. Just five games into the new season following a Stanley Cup win, the sports world can’t fathom why the number one enforcer would willingly step aside. He further throws the world into a tailspin with part of his reasoning behind retirement: he wants to get out of the spotlight, start a private practice as a physical therapist, find a wife, buy a house, get a dog, and just settle down.

A year later, he runs into Olivia Casey—quite literally—and one hospital trip, a concussion and the shifting of the moon and the stars later, finally lets out the collective breath he’s been holding his whole life. For Olivia, a hotshot young architect taking the world by storm with her revolutionary yet simple designs, fate could not have been more obvious. She awakens to find the goliath man who knocked her down, and out, checking her body for damage; her good friends standing close by are no soothing balm to the primitive struggle of fight or flight she’s experiencing. But Fate can be brutally honest, whether its expected or not, and Justin and Olivia both wonder if they can relax their guard enough to let fate take its course and wind up lucky in love … or in the penalty box.

As with all of the giveaways you have until midnight (Pacific) today to enter.

Good luck!
