Three Southern Beaches!


Today’s the day!  Three Southern Beaches is available now from all major e-book retailers!  It includes novellas from Kathleen Brooks and Robyn Peterman, as well as my next Divorced series installment, Divorced, Desperate and Dangerous!  I hope you enjoy it!

Five things you’ll learn from Divorced, Desperate and Dangerous.

  1. There are other uses for petrified Dinosaur poop besides making jewelry.
  2. The sound of the beach, a salty breeze, and a porch swing are enough to make any problem fade.  Especially when a hot guy is sitting next to you.
  3. There is nothing scarier than a pissed off little ol’ gray-haired lady who has a black belt in karate.
  4. A man who’ll let a cat take up residence in his lap can’t be all bad.
  5. The price of a smile: Twenty bucks.  Getting one for free: priceless.
  6. Sometimes it takes running away from home to find yourself.

This week, to celebrate, I’m giving away a $50 gift card to either B&N or Amazon to one lucky person who can tell me something you learned from a romance novel.  Oh, and tell me the name of the book. Come on let’s have some fun!

  1. From romance novels I have learned even when you think there is no hope…. There is always hope and you may find your true love when you least expect it.

  2. From the countless romance novels I’ve read, I’ve learnt that we all have a love story just waiting to happen! It may be different from the next person but to you it’s the ultimate love story 🙂 x

  3. I learned to laugh, cry and smile and that there is always a happy ending if you are willing to search for it and sometimes the frog really is a prince.

  4. Romance novels have been my escape from various trials and tribulations. When I was recovering from breast cancer I romance novels provided me with hope, love, inspiration and enjoyment.

  5. Romance novels give me passion, promise and are uplifting since they explore human frailties and faults. We strive daily to make our lives better and romance novels depict real situations and make us feel better.

  6. Romance novels explore emotions which we all experience and have lived through. I can relate with their dilemmas and hope that everyone can learn from their mistakes and choices.

    • Caro ÓscarObrigado pela informação. Os nomes já lá estão e só fica um por identificar. Tomara eu que muitos coeoemptrânnos nossos fossem como tu, que até parece que andas de lupa. Aquela de teres topado no mapa de L.M., os dois círculos minúsculos com o 12 repetido é de Sherlock Holmes. Eu nunca daria por isso!Abraço

    • Great subject. I have been playing around with the idea of the comment structure recently.I think now Internet user are increasing day by day so company are preferring online marketing now.I think that Marketing Online is still the best choice, cause we have high ROI´s with less investments, especially with SEO. Thanks.

  7. What I learned from “Getting Worked Up” by Erin Nicholas is that the most carefully, laid out plans don’t always turn out the way you expect it. Something or someone better might come along the way. I’ve also learned that I love a romance novel that is set in a small town — the tight-knit community and quirkiness always adds something extra to a novel.

  8. I don’t think I learned this from any particular book but rather all I have ever read – that while my hubby is my prince (and I wouldn’t trade him for the world) he does need work in the romance department – because we all deserve not just love but romance as well

    • Jenni, oli tosiaan mukava tavata Villa Kivessä! Ilta oli oikein onnistunut (vaikka sitä seurasikin minun kohdallani samanlainen piiunakrastamisen kuin Inalla 🙁 ).

  9. Almost all the romance novels I read have taught me that wine, chocolate/sweets, and girlfriends help heal all wounds 🙂 I love my husband but sometimes I just need my girlfriends! Like in Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold series if a girl gets dumped all the girls in town bring drinks and junk food to the dumped girl so she can cry it out and they can cheer her up…

  10. I stepped off the bus in Sinful, Louisiana, and was fairly certain I’d gone straight to hell. Forrest Gump had gotten it all wrong. Life wasn’t a box o chocolates. It was a box of ex-lax, and I felt like I’d consumed the entire box. Louisiana Longshot by Jana Deleon. I learned that I don’t think I want to go to Louisiana, to many gators.

    • I have fun with, cause I found just what I used to be taking a look for. Yo2178u&#;ve ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye

  11. I’ve learned from many romance novels that anyone who is open to love will be able to find it. There’s been so many different books I’ve read over the years that allowed me to believe there’s an HEA waiting for everyone.

  12. I’ve learned that it is possible to overcome adversity and still find happiness. Tragic events in life don’t necessarily have to dictate your future happiness. This comes from reading Eloisa James’ When Beauty Tamed the Beast hero, Piers, and heroine, Linnet.

  13. I’ve learned from romance novels that every girl has her crazy friends and family to help go through this life. Even though you fall in love and somehow it just doesn’t work, there is someone out there who will love you for the beautiful, sassy, witty and intelligent but yet worrier you are. Gotcha by Christie Craig and Bluegrass series by Kathleen Brooks.

  14. I learned a lot of historical facts from Donna MacMean’ s The Whiskey Laird’ s Bed. Like how they ran a distillery back in the Scottish Highlands. It was actually quite interesting. I have also increased my vocabulary since reading romances. Sounds silly but it’s true. I always look up words I’m unfamiliar with and it’s helped me tremendously.

  15. I have learned that fairytales do come true! LOL at least in books! Ha Ha. Edenbrooke, by Julianne Donaldson.

  16. What have I learned from Romance Novels… Christie, you sure pick the hard questions, and you want book titles, heavens this could get lengthy…

    From my first Romance, which was probably not the wisest thing to hand an impressionable teenager, I learned that sometimes doing the right thing, isn’t the popular thing; Love can be awkward, consuming, amazing, and crazy; The birds and the bees, and how not to be treated. Wow, that really is a lot to lay on a simple book, isn’t it?

    Since that first book, I have fallen in love, in lust, in despair, down the rabbit hole, through a stone pillar, and back again. I have met amazing people, including characters, writers, and other readers, who truly understand that you can fall in love with a fictional character, and mourn their loss. I have learned that lovers fight, marriage isn’t always forever, and life isn’t perfect, but the only person who can hold me back from getting my “perfect” life, is me. In other words, I’ve learned a lot of life’s hardest lessons through reality, and how to cope with them through books.

    It’s hard to say which lessons came from which books, there are after all thousands in my home, one might say I have a library begging for bookshelves ~winks~ and I almost forgot, my favorite lesson… That I can have the bad boy begging on his knees with a flick of my tongue, if only within the pages of a book or my dreams…

    Can’t wait to read this book, it’s on my kindle, ready and waiting, but it will have to wait a little longer… I have much to learn in San Antonio.


  17. I learned from ‘Gotcha’ that you should never let relatives keep keys to your home (or apartment). They can drop in at really inconvenient times! 🙂

  18. Tricks and techniques I will not go into here from the erotic romance novels I have read. This year I read Hunting Shadows by Charles Todd and I learned something really fascinating about England and WWI or II and was anxiously waiting for my sister to read it so we could discuss this bit of info. She hasn’t read it and try as I might I can’t remember what I learned that so fascinated me at the time. OMG! It’s come back to me. The English at that time disrespected snipers because it was considered ungentlemanly not to face the person you are attacking/killing. Craziness! Obviously they didn’t adhere to “all is fair in love and war” at the time.

  19. Desi parintii fac propriului copil sute de fotografii, trebuie sa recunosc ca tot cele realizate in cadrul unei sedinte foto de catre un fotograf proesfionist sunt cele mai reusite. Si eu am avut impresia ca ma pricep sa fac poze, pana am vazut fotografiile facute de Nic fiicei mele. Chiar sunt grozave!
