Characters in all four Harlequin Heartwarming releases in October are public servants, dedicating their lives to help keep others safe. Between hurricanes, tornadoes and fires this summer, we've all needed a good hero. And those heroes need our support, too. The four authors of October's sweet romances came together to create a giveaway that helps honor those who give to others. Four lucky winners will receive 1 autographed print book from our previous releases, plus 1 ornament. Our grand prize winner will receive four autographed print books plus other goodies, but will also be able to choose where we donate to a charity, a donation that could help those who help others, help your local community or help those in a disaster area.
Are you interested in giving to Wounded Warrior? The Fireman's Fund? The Red Cross? Or do you have a charity near and dear to your heart? Enter for your chance to direct the money where you feel it'll do the most good.
No purchase necessary to enter (and we listed a lot of ways to enter, just follow the link): http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/4de3a0737/?
This contest is open in the U.S. and Canada (yes, Canada!). If you live somewhere else, you'll win 2 ebooks instead of 1 autographed book and an ornament. Good luck!
Here are the October releases we're celebrating:
Support Your Local Sheriff by Melinda Curtis
With his job in jeopardy, it couldn't be a worse time for Sheriff Nate Landry's past to come back to haunt him. But it would take an army to stop SWAT team member Julie Smith. The fellow cop—and sister of his ex-fiancée—wants one thing from the beleaguered lawman: custody of the toddler son that Nate didn't know he had. Nate may not be natural daddy material, but he quickly takes a shine to little Duke. And then there are the feelings Nate's been hiding for years toward Julie. Only now Julie's running for sheriff of Harmony Valley—against him. Time to retreat? Not if he wants a future with the woman he loves.
Caroline Bennett is not looking for a summer romance. As a police officer at Starlight Point amusement park, she's got more important things to worry about, like solving a cold case involving a girl's mysterious death thirty years ago. Construction engineer Matt Dunbar is one of the few people who'll talk about the incident, but even he's not eager to dig up the past. Matt's working on a new state-of-the-art roller coaster—a project that could make or break his career—yet he still finds time for Caroline. As the end of summer approaches, her investigation implicates Matt's company, and she has to choose: justice or the funny, charming man she's falling for.
Sam Blackburn excels at fighting fire with fire in Tennessee, whether it's putting out deadly forest blazes or rescuing his old friend, widow Avery Montague, who's lost her nerve on a steep mountain cliff. What happened to the daring, adventure-loving teenager who wasn't afraid of anything? As kids, Avery was always pushing Sam to be brave, to be better, so he's ready to return the favor. Except he's up for his dream job in Colorado as a hotshot smoke jumper, and he can't be in two places at once. His future is fraught with risk, but what's the point of living if you don't take chances? He just wants Avery to find the courage to go after what she wants, and he's hoping it's him…
A robbery followed by the discovery of a forgery at a respected art gallery thrusts Chelsea Owens into the center of an investigation headed by Detective Sam Eldridge. The instant chemistry between the high-spirited aspiring curator and the tall, dark, brooding cop is a classic case of opposites attract. Complications arise when Chelsea uncovers a connection to an unsolved art heist. Teaming up with Sam to find the stolen paintings ignites feelings that could lead to lasting love. But Sam isn't ready to move beyond the tragedy in his past, no matter how promising his future with Chelsea could be…

I just received my October books in the mail and they all look so good that I can't decide where to start first when I have time to start reading. I don't need to enter your contest, but my favorite charities are all veteran groups, wildlife and humane societies, and food banks. So many really great organizations doing wonderful work. If I won a lottery I'd give to more of them. Happy reading in October everyone.ReplyDelete
