Friday’s Sales, New Releases, and Giveaways -12/11/15

It’s Friday! And as always, my author friends have sent me a great list of books for today’s blog post. But first, was last week’s post not awesome?! Everyone is in the holiday spirit and Christmas novellas or out and some books go on sale. *sigh* I love books!

Anyway, I digress. Below are the books so Happy Reading! (And please leave a review for your author once you’ve completed the book. It’s the readers way of saying thank you.)​



M.A. Malcolm’s His Last Hope
Ms. Malcolm’s novel is on sale for 99c on Kindle until Sunday, December 13th.

Here’s the blurb: “It’s a nightmare from which she can’t seem to wake up. With no name, no memory and no identification, she can only answer to the name given to her—Hope. In the hospital, she is befriended by an older woman who becomes her lifeline, but even “Aunt Ruby” is stunned when Hope shares the mysterious circumstances of her amnesia and the unexpected complication: she’s pregnant.

When Professor Daniel Donahue returns to Florida from teaching abroad, he’s suspicious of the stranger now living with his beloved aunt. He makes it his mission to discredit Hope and disclose what he believes are her devious intentions.

Hope can’t help but feel the tension between them, but just below the surface lies an attraction neither of them can explain. With each passing day, Daniel finds it harder to deny his growing feelings, but before he can acknowledge them, he must face the pain of his past and resolve his issues with God. Can he lay his heart on the line, never knowing if someone else is out there, ready to reclaim his new-found Hope?”

Bonnie Engstrom’s Her Candy Cane Christmas
Ms. Engstrom’s novel is on sale for 99c on Kindle.

Here’s the blurb: “Noelle Day finally has the courage to break off her ill-fated engagement with her volatile fiancé and cancel their Christmas wedding. It’s embarrassing, and she has to share the humiliating reason with her friends The Candy Canes. The other five girls were to be her attendants in red taffeta gowns.
When she faints and falls into the arms of Braydon Lovejoy, the now former wedding florist, Braydon is confused by her abrupt manner. Who is this beautiful woman with the sepia hair and the huge brown eyes? Is she a damsel in distress as he suspects? He prays for an opportunity to find out.
Then he backs his delivery van into her precious red car, and he’s sure she would never go out with him, especially since he was hired to deliver a huge bouquet of roses to her from a secret admirer.
Noelle isn’t sure how to respond when Bruce, the school principal, physically forces himself on her. After all, he is her boss, and she’s just a first year English teacher.
She finally accepts a lunch date with Braydon, and he takes her to Sherman Gardens in Corona del Mar where she learns he is the local rose expert. But, Noelle worries their friendship is happening too fast and calls a respite.
One of the Candy Canes has a tragic accident, and the women bond together. But Braydon, who is not sure why he is involved, becomes their anchor.
Will Braydon’s prayers heal the hurts, physically and emotionally? Will the injured Candy Cane forgive the woman who caused her accident, the woman who is related to Bruce the principal? Will Noelle ever have her California Candy Cane Christmas?”

Jo Huddleston’s Weekly Giveaway
Ms. Huddleston is hosting a giveaway for ​Merry Kisses by Valerie Comer.
The giveaway goes from December 10th to December 15th on her Blog.

Here’s the blurb: “Fired from her retail position for saying Merry Christmas to a customer, Sonya Simmons chafes at the over-commercialization of the season and the difficulties of finding a new job. If only she’d actually said Merry Christmas instead of Merry Kisses to the tall, good-looking man buying enough toys for at least a dozen children. How embarrassing!

It was fun to fluster the pretty toy store clerk, but Heath Collins, the mall’s volunteer Santa Claus, hadn’t meant to get her fired. When his elf assistant comes down with a bad cold, Heath offers Sonya a few days’ work, only to discover she believes Santa is nothing but a liar and a fraud instead of an opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives.

Can Sonya and Heath embrace each other — opinions, traditions, and all — in time to share merry kisses for Christmas?”

You can follow Ms. Comer on her Website and purchase the novel on Kindle.​​​​​

Here’s the blurb: “Voice in the Wilderness is an inspirational, political thriller, with a strong romance thread (Susan May Warren helped me splice it in), about a neo-Marxist president, in centrist’s clothing, who plans to take the nation into tyranny, and the young man and woman who risk their lives to stop him. It’s an action-packed suspense story that seems pulled from the newspapers and a love story about two people born for each other and born for a time such as this.”
