Lawyers and Love!


I thought it'd be fun to end this uber romantic month with a few fun romance novel giveaways!

Today's giveaway is a book that's all about lawyers and love, something we normally don't put together.

I read A Case for Love by Kaye Dacus this last week. Actually, to be more precise, I read it in one evening this last week, which is a sure sign of a good book! (That, and I'm too impatient to wait until the next day to finish it!)

You got to know Forbes a wee bit in her previous two contemporary romances, Stand-In Groom and Menu for Romance, but Kaye has a smash hit in the 3rd novel of the Brides of Bonneterre series, showing us that love and law can coexist, and that long-time most eligible bachelor Forbes Guidry can find his happily ever after too.

Discussion: Leave a comment by tomorrow, 2/23/10, 10:00 p.m. CST for a chance to win an autographed copy of A Case for Love! Winner will be randomly picked and announced on Wednesday.

I guess we could also have a rousing conversation all about lawyers. Maybe a few good lawyer jokes... but yeah, um. Did everyone have a good weekend?? Yes, that's a MUCH better topic! We love our lawyers!!

Oooooo, I want a chance at winning Kaye's book! And it can be read in one night? Did you get any sleep at all???? lol

I don't know any lawyer jokes...I should, since my brother-in-law is one, but I am terrible at jokes and mess them up all the time!

I did have a pretty good weekend. I got the house cleaned and that's good. I got to watch my son play in the District basketball tournament and WIN! That's good. I did get a terrible headache yesterday and took some meds that knocked me out...so I got a nap...and that's good, right? (trying to see the positive in the headache...sigh)

Hey...you baby is fattening up! (I love looking at the little sweetie floating around on your blog! Awesome widget!)

Hope you had a good weekend, Krista! I spent Saturday writing and then Sunday actually took a tiny nap (and I never nap!). But I'm fighting a cold and so, gave myself a break! Of course, it's alway hard to nap with five kids running around the house! But I managed!

And definitely put me in the drawing for the new book! :-)

I was wrestling with love and all the complications over the weekend, but it was good and it ended well. Love is difficult, way more complex and delicate than I ever read about in any book -- why didn't someone tell me this?

Maybe they tried, and I wasn't listening.

The weekend was wonderful! My momma came up and helped with the boys so I could get a good nap and a shower that was as long as I wanted! :) Yesterday after church, Wade and I got the boys out and took advantage of the warm weather and sunshine! Praise God!

Computer problems put a major dent in my weekend plans. Writing came to a screeching halt.

Blessings,

I like the cover on that book for some reason. :)

I've been willing to try out more romances lately, so I'm going to enter!

Elana Johnson said...

Very cool! That books sounds great. Anything you can read in an evening is amazing.

Krista Phillips said...

If a book is good, I rarely spend more than a day reading it. Two at the most if I fall asleep because, well, I'm pregnant and fall asleep easy these days! Seriously, I'm horribly impatient!

Jill Kemerer said...

Nice! I want to read about Forbes and his happily ever after! Mm-hmmm!

I spent Saturday editing and Sunday writing. On the upside, my weekend did feel long.

I had an enjoyable weekend. I spent very little time online for a change. Instead I curled up in front of our pellet stove and savored Miralee Ferrell's latest romance, Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon, which is great story that grabbed me and kept me reading until the mystery element of the story was solved and the heroine chose one of two possible heroes.

I've enjoyed Kaye's books Stand-in Groom and Menu for Romance and am looking forward to the third one in this series.

I had a wonderful weekend but just need another day. Perhaps Siturday (between Friday and Saturday)???

No lawyer jokes here as I used to work for 'em during my court reporter career!!!

A lawyer once told me I'd make a good lawyer b/c I'm able to see the gray in things. I took it with a grain of salt b/c it was advice from a lawyer. ;)
