Love With a Perfect Cowboy

RebornHowdy, y’all!  Today, I’m beyond thrilled to be able to share in the release day of one of my dearest friends, Lori Wilde.  Her latest book, Love With a Perfect Cowboy, releases TODAY and she’s here to share a special snippet with us.  I’m also giving away five copies to some lucky folks, so be sure and leave a comment!


Melody Spencer had long-ago wiped the dust of Cupid, Texas, off her cute shoes . . . and done her best to forget the chiseled jaw and strong arms of cowboy Luke Spencer. Their families might be part of a long-time feud, but he was her very first love, even if it turned out they never wanted the same things.

But now Luke’s come striding back into her life, tempting her with the memories of long, lazy evenings and hot, passionate kisses. And he has an ulterior motive—as Mayor of Cupid, he knows Melody’s business savvy can help save their beloved hometown. His smooth talking might get her to Texas, but that doesn’t mean he’ll get her in his bed. Still, people do say love can be more perfect the second time around . . .

Here is an excerpt:

“You’ve simply got to taste this.” She leaned across the table to give him a bite of langoustine straight from the tines of her fork. Her chocolate eyes gleamed, her lips glistening from the buttery seafood, and hey, he could see straight down her cleavage.
He should rein himself in, refuse the tasty tidbit, but instead, he leaned forward, his teeth touching the tines of her fork, where her teeth had just been. Something inside him unraveled, spooling into a hot mess of desire.
“That’s delicious,” he croaked, even though he was so bedazzled by her sexy beauty that he couldn’t taste a damn thing. Because he couldn’t say what he really wanted to say. You’re delicious and I want to eat you up.
“Told you.” She laughed, and in that moment, she looked exactly like the fifteen-year-old girl he’d kissed on that long-ago Fourth of July.

RebornWINNER! WINNER!  The lucky winner of a copy of Reborn from last week’s blog is: Renee!  Email me at: christie (at) with your choice of e-book or print and delivery information.  Congratulations!

Well, the day we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived, and I’m so excited!  Reborn is out and available at all major retailers today!  It’s a bit like sending your baby off to school.  You are happy, thrilled and a little nervous for them, too! But, I love Reborn and telling Della’s story, and I really hope you do as well.  She truly is one of my favorite characters and has been so much fun to write.  Here’s a small sampling for you of just a few of the things that happen to her in this book:

In Reborn, Della . . .

  • Gets hit on by five guys.
  • Has to deal with the loss of someone she loves.
  • Gets to kick a little butt.
  • Has six people offer a pint of blood to spend the hour with her.
  • Gets caught lying to Burnett—for a good reason.
  • Has to take on and take down a kangaroo.
  • Has to use duct tape to wrap up a problem.
  • Is reminded the essential value of friendship.
  • Learns a secret about her father’s past that blows her away.
  • Has to deal with not one but two ghosts.
  • Realizing that Fate has a plan for her that she’s not too crazy about.
  • Becomes furious because she’s considered less than because she’s a girl.
  • Is forced to perform a medical procedure that she so isn’t ready to do.
  • Offers her own soul to save two people she cares about dearly.


Available at Amazon:

Barnes & Noble:

I hope you’ll pick up your very own copy if you haven’t already, and remember, the next book, Eternal, is slated for November 2014.

Happy Reading!


Are You Ready for Reborn?

reborn-hdphWell, we’re on the final countdown…only one week until Reborn is released on May 20th! It’s an exciting time for me as I get ready to unleash Della on the world and I hope you love it as much as I do!  One of the most exciting things that’s happened with Reborn is that it’s been made into an audiobook! Don’t you just love audiobooks?

Here’s a sample of Reborn on audio:

Like I said, super exciting!  So, today, I’ll be giving away a copy of Reborn to one lucky person, so be sure and leave me a comment.  Good luck!

P.S. I hope you’ve been keeping up with Saved at Sunrise on Wattpad.  If not, here’s the link to read it for FREE:

P.P.S. Don’t forget, until the end of the month, the Brenda Novak auction to benefit diabetes research is going on with some fabulous items for you to bid on to raise money for a wonderful cause. I have a Shadow Falls package up for bids!

Get out of your Reading Zone!

CC special offer WINNERS!  WINNERS!  The winners of Circle of Redemption from last week are: Anneliese Carinc, Becka Lynn, Kathleen O., and bn100.  Please email me at: christie (at) with your preferred e-reader and I’ll get you your gifts.  Congrats!


Don’t Miss out on the Deal!  Buy one book, get two books free!

Get out of your comfort zone.  What comfort zone?  Well, your reading zone.  A while back, I judged the Romance Writers of America’s Rita awards.  I got to try eight different authors.  A few I had read before, and some I’d never read.  Some were in genres that I don’t read regularly, and amazingly I enjoyed several.  It just goes to show that as readers we need to occasionally step our toes out of our comfort zones and try something different.  

How many of you, my Christie Craig fans, read my C.C. Hunter books?  Amazingly, I think a lot of you have jumped over into that reading pond. But, some of you still say…”What?  You write a different series under another name?”  Yes, I write as C.C. Hunter, and my Hunter books are Young Adult.  But, amazingly, my publisher says about 70% of my C.C. readers are adults.  I believe it.  I jokingly say that if you want a woman to tell you her age, write a young adult, because about half of my emails coming in to C.C. Hunter start with…”I’m forty-two…I’m sixty-two, I left the teenage years behind twenty years ago… But I love your books!”  And I love that they love them.


But, if you are on the fence and haven’t yet tried them, here’s a deal for you.  First, go to Wattpad and read Saved at Sunrise:  This is a novella, and Wattpad is putting it up free.  I think they have it all up except the last chapters and they go up this Friday.  Read that novella, then check out the first chapter of Reborn, the first  book in the Shadow Falls spin off series, called Shadow Falls: After Dark: If you enjoy that, go ahead and pre-order the book (e-book or print) and follow instructions at this link: and my publisher will send you free, a print copy of Shadow Falls: The Beginning, which includes the first two books in the Shadow Falls series. 

Still on the fence?  Okay, On May 12th, I’m giving away Weddings Can Be Murder free on all the e-book sites.  I even gave the book a facelift, a new cover, and in the back is a 45 page excerpt of Reborn

The free offer of Shadow Falls: The Beginning is also a great way to get someone interested in the series.  And hey…put it up and give it as a Christmas present, or a birthday gift.

So don’t miss out.  Pre-order Reborn and get your copy of Shadow Falls: The Beginning.
Happy Reading!


P.S. Check out my book trailer videos (yes, that’s TWO!) for Reborn!  I love them!
