I have emailed each of you!  Congrats!

Update: This giveaway is now Closed.

It has been a long time since I had the chance to read a book just for me....just for fun and relaxation.  I used to love romance novels and how they took me away to a romantic land of fantasy and yet I have not picked up a book just for pleasure in a few years.  Well, I should rephrase, I have not picked up a book that did not have pictures of cute characters drawn on the pages since Savannah has been born.

I received a copy of Still the One and inhaled it.  The author of the book Robin Wells caught my attention from the start.  The moment she introduced a long lost love to Katie and a daughter, Gracie, that had been placed for adoption while her long lost love never even knew she was pregnant...I was hooked.  When I say, I inhaled this book - I really mean it!  It took me just a few nights to read it while my husband was snoring .. I mean asleep next to me.  Is this book going to change the world?  No, but did it allow me to change my world for a few hours of fantasy and romance and that was a nice treat!


Here is the teaser from the back of the book:


After Katie Charmaine’s husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she’s always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town…with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.
Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn’t felt in years. But he’s in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and - worst of all - pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to one another?

Do you want to read a few more excerpts?  Then go HERE. You can find this book on Amazon, BN.com, Borders and many other retailers. The book price is $6.29.
