The champagne glasses have been put away, 2016 is in full swing, and the Blog Hop has ended, which means it’s time to announce the winners of my little giveaway.

Congratulations to the winners!! I will be in touch by email to get all the info needed to get your prizes into your hands.
Happy New Year to all of you. I sincerely hope all your dreams for the new year find fertile soil.
Welcome to the blog. I know I haven’t been as present here as I should be, but I am hoping to make it up to you all by offering a little giveaway action. So, to that end, I have entered a Blog Hop being hosted by my publisher, Roane Publishing.
It’s a great way to meet some new authors, learn about some new stories, and hopefully nab yourself a few freebies.
For my part in the Hop, I am giving away two prizes.
The first prize — a $10 Roane Publishing Gift Certificate is open to anyone who signs up for my monthly newsletter. You can find the signup form here: http://eepurl.com/bGX7mP (OPEN INTERNATIONALLY). I will randomly select one new subscriber at the end of the Hop for this prize.
The second prize — a signed print copy of Call of the Sea to one lucky commentor. (US ONLY)
So what do I want you to say in your comment to be qualified?
Simple — Just leave a comment below telling me what your goal is for 2016. That’s it. Oh, and please leave your email address, so I can reach you should you be selected as my winner.
Giveaways are open until the end of the HOP. Winners will be selected on Jan 9th and posted here on the blog once selected.
As I mentioned, there are a bunch of other sites and authors participating in the HOP, and each one has a giveaway of their own, so please stop by and visit with the others as well.

Welcome to the Merry May Blog Hop hosted by Roane Publishing. I am pleased as punch to have you stop by to see me. You can Hop to any of the participating blogs and enter the giveaways offered on each site. Roane Publishing is also giving away a Grand Prize of 3 eBook titles of the winner’s choice, so be sure to hit their site and enter that.

For my part of the Hop, I will be offering a signed PRINT COPY of FOR THE LOVE OF MURPHY as the GRAND PRIZE, and a Runner-Up prize of an eCOPY of the winner’s choice from the back list of either Rebecca Hart or R. Brennan (since I write as both). Available in ePUB, Kindle or PDF formats. My back lists can be found on the sidebar of the blog here. Tame to the left and saucy to the right.
So how do you score an entry in the giveaway?
All you need to do to be entered to win is comment below telling me what you are most looking forward to this summer. You will also need to leave a contact email, so I can get in touch with you if you are selected as the winner. Please make your entries unique. Copied and pasted entries will be disqualified.
As a BONUS — you can win an extra entry in the giveaways by following me on twitter (@Rebelhart69 or @bexbrennan) Be sure to tell me in your comment post what your twitter handle is, so I know who to give the extra entry to. If you don’t have twitter, you can follow me on any of the social media links at listed on the blog and as long as you tell me who you are and what app you followed me on, I will still give you the extra entry into the drawings.
For myself, what I am most looking forward to this summer, as with any summer, is the opening day of camp. I’ve been up to “Camp Tortuga” to rake and take the cover off the camper, but that is merely a tease. The campground doesn’t open officially until May 15th (almost there). Coincidentally, the same day the Hop ends. Giveaway open until Midnight EDT May 15th, 2015. Winners will be selected and announced in a followup post no later than Monday, May 18th. Print Copy Giveaway open to US Residents ONLY. (Sorry) eBook Giveaway open to International Entries.

So hey everyone. Good to be back among the living… for the most part.
As an author, I have had an opportunity to meet tons of new people — writers, readers and bloggers alike. I have formed friendships I know will last a lifetime. Most notably with the ladies in my critique group on Scribophile — The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pens, some of whom I am as close to as my own sisters. Love them, cheer for them, cry for them — they have shown me what friendship is about.
Another is the host of the blog we are celebrating today, In the Pages of a Good Book. Beckey has been amazingly supportive of my and my writing, so I was thrilled to have a chance to participate in her giveaway event.
And talk about giveaways… there are a ton of things happening, from a blog hop to a Facebook takeover event. Not to mention giveaways galore.

A BIG FAT CONGRATULATIONS AND HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE “IN THE PAGES OF A GOOD BOOK” BLOG!!
Things are really popping on the blog lately, which I love, and today is no exception. Actually, today is special in that one of my close friends and fellow authors, Terri Rochenski has stopped in today to share a bit about her newest release, ALONE NO MORE, as well as sharing her Top Ten Favorite Romance Movies with us.
I am a romantic movie junkie, so I am very curious to see what romances made Ms. Rochenski’s list and how many of them match up with my own. So, here is Terri with her list:
My top ten favorite romance movies of all time in no particular order
- Pride & Prejudice. While I enjoy any of the versions, the 2005 with Keira Knightly and Matthew MacFadyen is by far the best.
- The Notebook. I always think of my grandparents and the love they shared. This one always brings a tear or two.
- Sense & Sensibility, the 1995 version. Love love love.
- Cold Mountain. JUDE LAW on that roof top. Le sigh. Need I say more?
- The New World. Colin Farrell. Mmmmmm Seriously, though, even as a child I was intrigued by Pocahontas and her story. Even got to be her once in a middle school play.
- 17 Again – the only romantic comedy on this list! I always thought Zach Efron was a punk, but he did such a believable job in this film, and Leslie Mann was a riot. They had great chemistry and their quirky expressions just made this a great one for me.
- Legends of the Fall. No, it’s not really a romance movie, but it’s one of those haunting movies that sticks in the brain LONG afterwards. Longing, lost love … ugh. Hurts just thinking about it!
- Last of the Mohicans. Like #7, this movie is heart wrenching. That cliff scene – I cry every. Single. Time.
- Princess Bride. No explanation necessary IMO.
- Far and Away. One of the few times I’ve enjoyed Tom Cruise on the big screen.
Wow… I am shocked to see we only have two in common, but one if the two is my all time favorite, so I was glad to see LAST OF THE MOHICANS on the list. If you are wondering, the other one I would also have on my top 10 romance list is Legends of the Fall (as a matter of fact, Brad Pitt in that movie was the inspiration for my historical romance hero, Daniel O’Rourke).
What are your top 10 romance movies? Feel free to share your picks in the comments section. Love hearing from you. 🙂
Now that I have put you all off long enough and heightened anticipation, here are the details on Terri Rochenski’s release:
Genre: Romance / Historical
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Release Date: December 18, 2013
Dismissed from her job as a scullery maid and cast aside by her lover, pregnant Cara Morland has no choice but to return to her father’s farm. While lies of widowhood keep her from disgrace, Cara is faced with a local landowner’s unwanted attentions. Without the social status to do much more than avoid the vile man, she loses hope of ever finding happiness.
A friendship based on mutual loneliness blossoms between Cara and James Elliot, a young farm hand hired by her father. He offers his protection, and one shared kiss reveals his heart, but propriety and her feigned grieving period hinders what they both desire.
When Cara’s stalker learns the truth of her circumstances, he gives her an ultimatum—submit to his possession or he’ll ruin her second chance at love with James.
Add it to your Goodreads TBR Pile today:
Will be added as soon as possible
I bet you are wondering where the giveaway is, aren’t you? Terri is giving away a FREE ecCopy of ALONE NO MORE to a luck winner.
As promised, here is the link to the Rafflecopter giveaway
Bio: Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.
Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.
Celebrate like a ROCK STAR because Evernight Publishing is THREE!
In three short years, Evernight has grown by leaps and bounds thanks to readers like you! Evernight is pulling out all the stops and throwing an extreme BIRTHDAY BASH BLOG HOP in your honor!
That’s right! It’s Evernight’s birthday but YOU get the presents…
Samsung Galaxy Tab
$100 Evernight and Amazon Gift Certificates
Mega Evernight Swag Pack
Plus, each author on the hop will offer his/her own special prize!
As an author, I’m thrilled to share my stories with you and Evernight helps make my books shine! Here’s one reason why I love Evernight Publishing:
I’ve been submitting my erotic stories for the past two years and Evernight Publishing has been my favorite publisher to date. Why?
Because aside from the great authors they have, many of whom have become good friends, their staff is second to none when it comes to offering support to their authors. Not once have I felt shuffled off or ignored, and in a business that can be cutthroat at time, it is quite a refreshing change. That sort of loyalty is one of the biggest reasons I think so many of their authors stick with them. We feel like part of the family. Not just as a slogan or catch phrase, but genuinely involved.
I love that about Evernight.
I’m over the moon excited to have a chance to take part in their 3rd Birthday celebration.
For my little part of the hop, I have decided to host a Rafflecopter giveaway of my own — offering entrants a chance at a $10 Evernight Publishing Gift Card as the Grand Prize, and a runner-up prize of the winner’s choice of either of my Evernight titles — Vanilla-Free Christmas or a Leap of Faith.
So you have an idea what you can win there, here is the info on each of the titles being offered as prizes. If you are interested in grabbing a copy rather than waiting to see if you won, click on the book images in the right sidebar and they will take you to the purchase pages for each title.
VANILLA-FREE CHRISTMAS (An Evernight Anthology)
This Christmas, the best gifts are waiting for those who have been naughty…
And the toys under the tree are not for children. Sexy Santas, naughty elves, and dominant shifters are ready to spread some very kinky Christmas cheer. It’s a good thing the ladies in our stories are looking for anything but vanilla.
New submissive, Faith Daniels, is completely infatuated with her amazing Dominant, Richard Halstead. So when he sends her a summons via text message a full day before they had plans to meet, she can barely contain her excitement.
But, Richard didn’t just invite her over for a play date. Not this time. He has a proposition for Faith. One that could change the rest of her life.
Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, sex toys, pet play
