Win Gift Cards and Over 50 Prizes at the Romance Madness Hop!



Welcome to the Romance Madness Blog Hop!

To enter the giveaways, follow the instructions under "Prize Giveaway" and "Grand Prize Giveaway" below. 

The Romance Madness Hop runs from 1/25-1/29,
so you have plenty of time to win!


I've decided that 2013 is the Year of Reading Adventurously for me. I'm trying out new authors and new genres. I followed this plan in 2012 and discovered a bunch of great authors and books. Today, I'll showcase one of my favorites: 

Kristine Cayne, Deadly Obsession. A gorgeous movie-star hero who falls in love with a single-mom photographer and then gets pursued by a crazed stalker? Sign me up! Deadly Obsession blends an exciting suspense story with a scorching hot romance. I highly recommend it, especially if you love romantic suspense. (Full disclosure: Kristine is my critique partner, but I'm certainly not the only one who thinks she's awesome--RT Book Reviews gave Deadly Obsession 4 1/2 stars, Top Pick! status.)

Even better: Deadly Obsession is just the start to Kristine Cayne's fantastic Deadly Vices series. Book 2, Deadly Addiction, brims with twists and turns and another smoking romance that you'll never forget!

You can get Deadly Obsession at these retailers: Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, Diesel, All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, Sony

If, like me, you want to challenge your reading self by trying new authors and new genres, you may want to check out my Blood and Honor romantic suspense series, which is set in Italy among the Calabrian Mafia. The series chronicles the battles--both bloody and romantic--between two warring Mafia clans. Books 1 and 2 are available now. Here's a taste of Book 1:

A woman on the run. A damaged Mafia don. A rival bent on revenge...


Revenge (Blood and Honor, #1) by Dana Delamar
Kate Andretti is married to the Mob--but doesn't know it. When her husband uproots them to Italy, Kate leaves everything she knows behind. Alone in a foreign land, she finds herself locked in a battle for her life against a husband and a family who will "silence" her if she will not do as they wish. When her husband tries to kill her, she accepts the protection offered by a wealthy businessman with Mafia ties. He's not a mobster, he claims. Or is he?

Enrico Lucchesi never wanted to be a Mafia don, and now he's caught in the middle of a blood feud with the Andretti family. His decision to help Kate brings the feud between the families to a boil. When Enrico is betrayed by someone in his own family, the two of them must sort out enemies from friends--and rely on each other or die alone. The only problem? Enrico cannot reveal his identity to Kate, or she'll bolt from his protection, and he'll be duty-bound to kill her to safeguard his family's secret. 

Attacks from without and within push them both to the breaking point, and soon Enrico is forced to choose between protecting the only world he knows and saving the woman he loves. 

Excerpt: 

Enrico raised a hand in greeting to Kate, and she returned his wave and started descending the steps. She headed straight for him, her auburn hair gleaming in the sun, a few strands of it blowing across her pale cheek and into her green eyes. With a delicate hand, she brushed the hair out of her face. Enrico’s fingers twitched with the desire to touch her cheek like that, to feel the slide of her silky hair. A small, almost secretive smile crossed her features, and he swallowed hard. Dio mio. He felt that smile down to his toes.

She stopped a couple feet from him. “Signor Lucchesi, it’s good to see you, as always.”

He bowed his head slightly. “And you, Signora Andretti.” He paused, a grin spreading across his face. “Since when did we get so formal, Kate?”

She half-turned and motioned to the doorway behind her. And that was when he noticed it—a bruise on her right cheek. Merda! Had someone hit her? Tearing his eyes off the mark, he followed her gesture. A tall, sandy-haired man, well-muscled and handsome, leaned in the doorway, his arms crossed. “My husband, Vincenzo, is here.”

Enrico’s smile receded. He looked back to Kate. “I’d like to meet him.” And if he did this to her, he’s going to pay.
