The Tennessee Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is holding a fun auction to raise money for their cause--and it just so happens to be a cause I believe in a great deal. The auction is actually a bachelor and bachelorette auction--and you thought we romance writers made those things up & they didn't occur in real life--and guess who is emceeing the event? The "Bacherlor" himself, Dr. Travis Stork. & guess who one of the bachelorettes being auctioned off is? Charmaine Hunt from The Apprentice. Very cool, huh?
Although I have a very unholy obsession with Matthew, I am happily married so I'm not part of the bachelorette auction, but I am being auctioned off as a "Lunch with an Author" in hopes of raising more funds for the event. I've also donated a character name in a future release to be auctioned. & not to leave my friends out, I've put together a couple of baskets to be auctioned off as well. Baskets full of AUTOGRAPHED books donated by the authors themselves. WOW! The romance industry is a big hearted one--no pun intended. :) I'll be honest, after recieving the books I've had to order two of them to read myself because the back cover copy HOOKED me!!!
So, in honor of their generosity I'm going to post a list of books donated (the books are still coming in & I'll update the list as they do) & am going to be posting a few blurbs over the next couple of weeks in hopes of HOOKING you, too. All the books on this list have been donated by the author--the list doesn't include books I'm putting in.

& Betty Hanawa's The Still Sexy Ladies Guide to Dating Immortals FALLING STAR WISH is a riot! "You're 30 something, sexy, smart, but you can't find a good man to save your life. What does any enterprising woman do then? Something bold, something daring! She decides it's time to date an Immortal. "
& Connie Mason's A TASTE OF PARADISE. When lovely Sophia Carlisle stowed away on a ship bound for Jamaica, she hardly expected to find Christian Radcliff at the helm. She and the captain had a turbulent history, which involved the breaking of her heart and the death by duel of his best friend...No man could arouse her sense as the swashbuckling captain did, and she had no use for prudence or propriety when in his kiss she could find...A TASTE OF PARADISE."
& Kelley St. John's GOOD GIRLS DON'T has "The Good Girl Pledge" listed on the back cover that is to live by. :)
