Happy Release Week, Essence! Fun Giveaway

Essence is set in St. Augustine, Florida, at a luxury spa by the same name (Essence). So what’s the best (or your favorite) location/setting for a romance that you’ve ever read? Comment on this post to win a copy of Essence today!


It’s release week for Essence, my contemporary romance novel published by Soul Mate Publishing. Released on January 1, 2014, it’s now available at Amazon and Soul Mate Publishing. In celebration, I’m giving away five Kindle copies of Essence today to people who comment on my blog post. So jump in and comment away. Check back throughout the day as I’ll be giving away other cool items, including signed copies of books by your favorite contemporary romance authors (Nora Roberts, Susan Donovan, Donna Kauffman, and Kimberly Kincaid).

Book blurb:

All Haven Jameson ever wanted was to own a little piece of paradise. Now, she does, having established a successful luxury spa in St. Augustine, Florida. But when the property next door is sold to a mega developer and his pro-golf celebrity brother who design trendy, bustling playgrounds for the rich and famous, she fears her dream could slip away. Confronted by her late husband’s infidelity, Haven learns everything she believed about her marriage was a lie; so she finally sets aside her grief and opens her heart to loving the widowed pro-golfer who is her biggest professional competition. In the end, Haven discovers that living a safe, loveless life is far worse than embracing passion and taking a chance on a man who’s vowed never to love again. And that, sometimes, no matter how high the risk, the best paradise of all can be found inside our own hearts.

I recently finished a PRESENTS book that was set in Austria.

Favorite book setting: Vienna, Austria. The Alps mountains sound so beautiful and the rich history. I'm sure Christmas is especially gorgeous. I'd love to hear the Vienna Boys Choir sing Christmas carols.

I lived in FL for several years and I loved visiting St. Augustine. It's a charming, historic city.

Essence Spa is a wonderful setting for romance. Today's busy woman dreams of the ocean, spa days and yoga sessions.
