March 18 Book Giveaway


Another ARC giveaway today, this one from the oh so talented HelenKay Dimon. HelenKay has offered up an ARC of her March 31st release, IT’S HOTTER IN HAWAII.

HelenKay writes oh so fun and sexy contemporary romances. If you haven’t read her books yet, you are really missing out! You can read about IT’S HOTTER IN HAWAII here



Cassie Montgomery was in no mood for messing Around—until she got an eyeful of the sizzling-hot miscreant breaking into her half-brother Dan’s Hawaii home. Turns out he’s not a criminal, but a friend who’s just as suspicious of Dan’s “accident al” death as she is. Cassie’s beyond tired of bashing heads with thick-skulled local law enforcement, so there’s only one thing for it: team up with Caleb Wilson, and try to keep her secrets—and hands—to herself…

Having a gun trained on him is nothing new for Cal. But when said gun is brandished by a goddess sporting short-shorts, a bad attitude, and a hidden agenda? A man should consider his choices very carefully. Option one: Seduce first, ask questions later. Option two: Find out why she’s in his Air Force buddy’s torn-up house, then seduce her. Option three: Let the islands do their work and let the woman behind the weapon seduce him…

HelenKay sets a lot of her books in Hawaii. And since I have mad love for Hawaii, that totally works for me. Makes me want to hop a plane and take a trip to the islands. Admittedly, Hawaii is one of my absolutely favorite vacation spots. Great people, the smell of the flowers rock my world, the ocean is amazing. Plus hot sun, sandy beaches, Mai Tais, shopping, whale watching, snorkeling…..

Oh yeah…contest. :giggle:

So for a chance to win this book, let’s go on vacation today. Pick your favorite or dream vacation spot. Where would you go and why?

Please don’t panic if your comment doesn’t appear right away. Some comments are being moderated and I’ll grab them and release them.

Because my blog is being a giant pain in the ass and holding comments in moderation and in spam and it takes me a bit to go find them, I’m going to choose winners at the end of every week, on Saturday, instead of every day. So check back every Saturday to see if you’re one of the weekly book winners. Because I’m not going to hunt the winners down. You have to come here to see if you’ve won and then contact me with your info (Other than ARCS being sent by the authors offering them, I’ll be shipping all the winning books directly from Amazon). Otherwise, come back every day for a new book giveaway. And don’t forget the grand prize contest plus all the rules about the daily contest giveaways here

    I would go to Ireland. I’ve dreamed of going there after I started reading Nora Robert’s books. I just want to see all that green. I want to visit Clare County and just roam the countryside.

    Erin Thompson says:

    I would love to visit Italy. My grandparents came over to the US from there. The town where my grandmother is from is Pollutri, and my great-grandfather has a statue of him built in their town square. He was some type of war hero. So I think it would be totally cool to see that.

    I’d go to Russia. I’ve wanted to go since I was a teen…so much history, culture, and it’d be totally unlike anywhere I’ve ever been before.

    Eden Hail says:

    I have to concur with BikerCandy – Ireland is where I’d love to go. I’ve been there before and adored it – the people, the culture, the boys…. mmmmm *grins*

    I would love to be in Hawaii right now. It is just to cold here. However, my dream vacation would be Ireland. I’ve been overseas a couple of times but never got to go to Ireland. I’d love to just backpack across the country for a few months and learn the true culture and people. Please enter me in the contest.

    Have a great day.

    Hi Jaci!

    Wow, what a wonderful prize!

    My absolute favorite place in the whole world is Hawaii. I would go back there in a heartbeat given the opportunity, and I hate travelling. lol

    Why? The climate is perfect, the gardens are spectacular, the history, the shops, the volcano, the green forest, just everything about it. LOVE IT.

    Thanks So Much

    I’d love to visit Scotland…that’s where my family is from and it would be so cool to do some on the spot research into my ancestry.
    Plus centuries old castles, how neat would they be to explore!

    Lexee says:

    I want to go to Hawii. I love the beach and have heard stories from my mom about Hawaii. I really want to go. The clear blue water, the beaches, hopefully he weather nice if/when I get to go.

    Jennifer M says:

    My fav vacation spot is a few hours away from me on the coast. I love the beach and being in a small town. I went last year and fell in love and can’t wait to go back. It was so relaxing and peaceful. Ahh…

    I want to backpack Europe.

    Well, sans the backpack and hostels stays, since I’m more than twenty a dozen years too old to enjoy a trip like that.

    But I really would love to do some cheap wandering about Europe–I’m one of those irritating people who has to read every plaque in every museum display, and who can sit outside a church studying the architecture for an afternoon.

    And let’s not start on medieval or Roman ruins…

    My dream vacation would have to be Ireland and Scotland. Dunno why, but it is just about those two places that calls to me spiritually.

    Lori Ann says:

    My dream vacation spot is Scotland. My brother and sister-in-law went there for their honeymoon and brought back lots of gorgeous photos of the beautiful scenery. I would love to see the standing stones, castles, and cathedrals in person. I would also love to visit some of the museums there.

    Melissa says:

    OOoh, I’ve already been hearing about this book. It sounds so awesome!! LOL, Fatin has me lusting for it already.
    I have always wanted to go to Alaska. I get such a thrill just looking of the pictures of the open wilderness and water there…I can’t even imagine witnessing it first hand. One of these days I WILL go. I have to go on one of those killer whale watch rides…different, I know, but it’s just something I’ve always wanted to do.

    I want to see England…Stone Henge, castles, british accents…that would be the ABSOLUTE perfect vacation for me. 🙂

    Lyoness2009 says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Alaska. All of the scenery would be fantastic! If I couldn’t see that, I would probably go to Tennessee to see Nashville. 🙂 Dream vacation baby!

    Eshani says:

    One of my favorite places to visit is Italy..the people are gorgeous, the architecture is magnificent, and the food is yumm!! I’ve been there 2 times, and there is still so much left to see..
    I would also love to visit Scotland/Ireland (my facination began with romance novels 😉
    and I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii.

    I would go to Ireland or the South of France. Both places are high on my want to visit list. Beautiful countryside, great castles and history to explore.

    Melissa Conatser says:

    I am from Kentucky and have never been west of the state. So, my dream vacation is to see the west, in particular Montana and the Grand Canyon. Should I ever get the never to get on a plane? Then, it would be Ireland.

    Diane M. says:

    US would be the Rockies and overseas would be Ireland.

    Laurie says:

    I’m reading this one now and it’s sooo great – good luck to everyone!

    I feel like a mockingbird, but I’d have to say Ireland too – County Wicklow to be exact. I’d love to walk about knowing that my ancestors once walked there.

    I’d so love this book! 🙂

    Well, me, first of all if I had 30 mil, then to the International Space Station I go! 🙂 If there was a Mars trip, I’d sooooooo be on that one.

    However, if you want more Earthbound locations, I’ve always been a nut for thing British, so England, London, Bath, Jane Austen and Shakespeare related.

    Also been a nut for all things Ancient Egypt, so Egypt, Cairo, Thebes.

    And also been a chocolate nut, so maybe chocolate shops in Paris, NYC, and anywhere else with chocolate! 🙂

    Lisa N. says:

    Hawaii would be nice, but my dream vacation would be to Spain and Greece. I took a lot of spanish classes growing up and would love to see the places I’ve read about. I also love reading Greek myths and would like to see some of the temples and places they myths were set.

  31. 31
    Karin says:

    My favorite vacation spot is a tie between Ireland and Scotland. There’s just something about Ireland and the highlands of Scotland that speaks to me. I can’t wait to go back to either place, though I have a feeling Ireland will come first.

    If I didn’t live at foot of the Rocky Mountains, though, Ireland and Scotland would definitely have some competition or a three-way tie for my favorite vacation spots.

    Emily says:

    Hi Jaci! My fav vacation spot is anyplace tropical warm-beach side with unlimited mixed drinks while I put my feet in the ocean!
    Have a great day!!

    danni says:

    My dream vacation is Ireland. Ever since I was young I’ve had a fascination with everything Irish. I would love to see all the green. If I couldn’t go to Ireland I would probably pick Greece. I really enjoy Greek mythology.

    I would love to go to Italy. First I would head to Venice and take a gondola ride and then go see the Trevi Fountain in Rome.

    I’m happy to go were ever the book I’m reading at the moment takes me! Especially if I don’t have to physically leave my moutain home, I hate to travel. 🙂

    Liza says:

    I would go to Ireland. It has always been my dream vacation spot and I hope to get there as soon as my vacation fund is fully funded.

  37. 37
    Cathy M says:

    I would be game for almost anywhere in Europe, but Ireland and Italy make the top of my wish list. Ireland, but I am an Irish lassie and have never been, and Italy, to see the country and enjoy the food.

    Mikaela says:

    Well, a friend have invited me to Malaysia, and my cousin just moved to China… And… I would love to go to Scotland again, and London.. and.Uh. Do I really have to pick one?!
    If I really have to pick one, I would pick Wales. It fascinate me!

    Lisa F. says:

    Oh this is easy, I’ve always wanted to go to Italy. I really don’t know why, it is just a place that I’ve always wanted to go. My husband is Italian and he has been there before so I think he needs to take me there. I just think it is beautiful there.

  41. 41
    Christine M. says:

    Ireland 🙂 I’d pubcrawl Dublin (or try to at least) and visit the Guinness Brewery! ^^

  42. 42
    Greta says:

    I’m not a beach & water person – so I want to go somewhere with Mountains. I’m Colorado, Wyoming, Lake Tahoe, maybe even Alaska. I’m a freak of nature and I don’t like hot weather. Give my colder weather and I’m happy. Maybe that’s where my facination with the mountains comes from. Besides the opportunity to see real wolves and maybe big cats like cougars.

    Murrells Inlet SC. It’s quiet and peaceful and less than 2 hours away!!

    Belize, and it will be a reality in 110 days… I lived in Europe for 6 years and realized I haven’t seen near enough of my own side of the world so I am hitting Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Belize and Isla Roatan.. I am going to spend 20 glorious days touring the wonderful places.. It makes the cold rainy days worth it! Thank you for such a wonderful contest I have had so much fun, Also I ordered Animal Attraction by Ms Teglia today, can’t wait to get it. Have a great day!

    Pat L. says:

    I would love to go to Italy or Hawaii. I hear Austrailia is great, but the plane ride would be way to long for me. So many places to visit.

    I would absolutely love to win this arc. I love HelenKay’s work.

  46. 46
    Pat L. says:

    Sorry forgot to say why – Hawaii – it is supposed to be so beautiful, great weather and would love to attend a luau. as for Italy, I am half Italian and have heard from several people that every city in Italy is wonderful and the same for Austrailia – several people I know have visitied and say it was so great and the people so friendly.

    I would love to go to Ireland, Scotland or Australia……………sucker for the accents!!!!
    Unfortunately I have been only as far as Florida 30 years ago and in the last 3 decades no further than Ohio……ugghhhh

    Michele L. says:

    Oh wow! I love HelenKay Dimon’s books! Awesome prize!

    My ultimate dream vacation would be to go to Aruba and to stay for a whole month! To just go for a week would be teasing me. I have seen so many beautiful pictures of Aruba and how pretty it is there. The weather is always gorgeous!

    Just to sit on the beach drinking Mai-Tai’s would be heaven! It would be even better yet, if there were some Cabana boys to deliver the drinks! Eye candy to go along with the beautiful scenery! My kind of heaven!

    KristieJ says:

    I have 2 – one of which I doubt I’ll ever get and the other might be doable some day.
    The impossible one is a vacation to Australia. I’ve always longed to go there. But I don’t think I’ll make it. The other one is a cruise up the coast of British Columbia. I like the thought of that one because the scenery is so beautiful – and I get to dress warm 🙂 and I’m not much of a hot weather girl.

    Pam Griffith says:

    I would like to go to England or Scotland and see the castles there.

  53. 53
    Lori T says:

    I would love to go to Scotland. This has always been the one place that I would love to go…the castles, the beautful scenery, and those accents.

    Bermuda. I would like to see how much it has changed in the last 20 years.

    RobynL says:

    I have wanted to visit Sweden where my Grandpa on Mom’s side came from as a young lad. We have relatives still living there that I’ve never seen. Hawaii does sound great but I burn easily and can’t take the heat. I’ll have to visit Hawaii in books.

  56. 56
    Caffey says:

    I do love HelenKay’s books too! Its hard not to fall for her heroes!!!

    I always wanted to go to Scotland! I think part of that comes from my love from reading medieval historical romances. Some castles still standing and would love to visit them. Too their culture with the MIK (Men in Kilts) they still do events related to that so would love to see it! I’ve seen pictures of such green grassy land and hills! I don’t like to fly so it will be a long flight with who ever goes with me, LOL.

  57. 57

    Would love to go to Italy, beautiful place.

  58. 58
    Laurie G says:

    I’d love to go to the gorgeous Greek Isle -Santorini! Beautiful white homes with royal blue roofs, gorgeous sunsets, views of indigo blue waters…ROMANCE & HISTORY!!
    Greek culture, customs, people and FOOD!

  59. 59
    Maureen says:

    My dream vacation changes periodically and right now I want to go to the Grand Canyon. I think it’s one of those places that pictures don’t do justice to so I would love to see it.

  60. 60
    Lillie A says:

    My dream vacation is Scotland. It is so beautiful! Plus, mine and my husbands ancestors are from there, and it would be great to see the area they came from.

  61. 61
    Tamsyn Takamiya says:

    China would be my destination. I would love to follow the Great Wall and see all the different peoples and cultures within this country – there is so much diversity! And martial arts!

  62. 62

    Dream vacation…

    I’d like to ride my ATV in Alaska, but it wouldn’t really be worth the money, since I can ride it through the trees in the snow here.

    They have cool ATV tours in Jamaica, but I don’t like heat, sun, beaches or people, so…maybe not.

    I guess my dream vacation would be riding my ATV through Australia. Since I won’t fly, however, I’d need one hell of a snorkle kit on my machine.

  63. 63
    Danny says:

    An author friend of mine, AJ Llewellyn, writes books that are set in Hawaii and his love of the island made me really curious about the islands and I would love to visit there

    Lynn R. says:

    Before I leave this planet, I want to visit Italy. It’s such a romantic, beautiful, cultural place. Who knows, I may never return. Did you ever see/read “Under the Tuscan Sun”? Diane Lane played a wonderful role. She went to visit and never returned. That might be me someday.

  71. 71
    Rosie G. says:

    Will try again. LOL – would love to go to Vegas again – I like to gamble a bit and would love to see a few good shows.

    I would love to win. Thanks for this opportunity.

    PhyllisC says:

    I’ve always wanted to visit Hawaii. But I would love to visit England and Scotland because that is where some of my family came from and since my favorite stories are historical they take place in that area.

  79. 79
    Terri says:

    In the winter, any where warm! There doesn’t even have to be a beach. As for a real dream vacation…..there are so many places that I want to go…..Ireland, Scotland, Poland, Austrailia, Brazil, back to Chile…..pick one and I’d be happy.

    Tasha W. says:

    My dream vacation would be to travel through Ireland and the UK. And I wouldn’t want it to be the typical touristy stuff…I’d rather hang out with the locals and work and play alongside them to get a real feel for their culture and history.
