I love receiving brand new book covers, especially when they look like Jinger Heaston's latest for Love's Unselfish Gift. What do you think? YuUuUMmY, right?
Yes, the guy in the middle is mine! Well, okay, I'll share. After all, he does. Take a look:
Marco Giovanni adores his wife Suzy and he loves her enough to let her go, taking extreme measures to protect her. Faking his own death, Marco runs away from the checkered past he’s always tried to hide. He leaves behind a letter asking his brother to protect and love Suzy.
Alanzo Giovanni knows Suzy is the only woman for him. When his brother dies, and long before he realizes Marco’s death is a hoax, Alanzo tells her they belong together. Battling inner demons, Suzy drowns in her sorrow, unsure if she can take another chance on finding happiness.
By the time Marco resurfaces, Alanzo and Suzy are weathering the storm of a rocky love affair. In the end a new love emerges, and the ménage relationship Suzy has always wanted is suddenly within her reach.
Winning Virgin Book Five: Winning Virgin Devotion was accepted at Siren Publishing for fall publication. I received word today. Look for the continuation of the Winning Virgin series later this year. In the meantime, if you haven't picked up a copy of Winning Virgin Promises, take a look at what you're missing: http://www.bookstrand.com/winning-virgin-promises
Winning Virgin Promises:
"You GOTTA READ": "Destiny Blaine's Winning Virgin Promises was simply phenomenal. I haven't read books on vampires and usually shy away from them, but the love I have had for Ms. Blaine's other books made me consider this book for review. Some words to describe this book could be spectacular, mind-blowing, incredible, seductive, and alluring. Even these descriptions do not bring justice to Winning Virgin Promises. This book will astound and have your riding a rollercoaster of emotions. I had so many mind boggling OMG moments that I did not see coming. You will never believe what is around the next corner and I highly urge you to buy this book." -- Val Pearson, You Gotta Read Reviews
5 KISSES: Winning Virgin Promises is the fourth installment to the Winning Virgin series. I found this one to be the hottest, sexiest and most compelling of all the books in the series that Destiny Blaine has written thus far. I was unable to put this one down even for a second." -- Tina, Two Lips Reviews
Winning Virgin Blood:
5.5 KISSES: Recommended Read: "In Winning Virgin Blood, the first book of her new Winning Virgin series, author Destiny Blaine introduces us to the rowdy, willful and `sexy as sin' Spencer clan. Although Orlando starts out more the love `em and leave `em type, fate has other plans for him. When he reluctantly returns to Las Vegas and meets the redheaded Natasha, he hits the jackpot when their chemistry is off the charts. I felt the sizzle just reading it! The lovely Natasha however, is no easily won prize. She requires some major convincing so the very determined Orlando pulls out all the stops when it comes to his personal brand of 'persuasion'. I think you'll find Winning Virgin Blood a very enjoyable and steamy read, with a highly likeable cast of characters. I personally cannot wait for the next installment of this series. Winning Virgin Blood is a `must read' and one for the keeper pile." -- Tina, Two Lips Reviews
5 PIXIES, Recommended Read: "Winning Virgin Blood is spectacular! This is Destiny Blaine's first attempt at a paranormal novel, and I am completely astounded. Readers expect an author's first foray into a different genre to pose a few issues in the storyline. However, I couldn't find a single thing to detract from this amazing story! Filled with a wickedly dynamic storyline, very engaging characters, and a romance that will blow your mind, Winning Virgin Blood is at the top of my favorite paranormal list this year. I was totally swept away by this story and the complexity of this vampire family's lives. I genuinely feel like I've gotten to know everyone involved in this story, and I wasn't left with feelings of boredom or repetition anywhere. If you're looking for a phenomenal paranormal romance, look no further. Winning Virgin Blood is the book for you!" -- Amanda Haffery, Dark Angel Reviews
5 HEARTS: "Winning Virgin Blood by Destiny Blaine is hopefully the first in a series of vampire brothers on the search for virgin brides. Ms. Blaine's compelling, erotic novel is a masterpiece. It was hot, sexy, and sinfully exotic. Hooked from the first words, Ms. Blaine truly delivers an amazing tale of feisty red hot love!" -- Crystal Adkins, Book Reviews by Crystal
4.5 BLUE RIBBONS: "Winning Virgin Blood is a book that pulls you in and totally keeps you hooked. Orlando is a sensual and powerful character that will curl your toes and keep you turning the pages. Natasha is his perfect counterpart and together they are dynamite. The love scenes are very intense and emotional investment of the characters will have you up late into the night to finish the story. Once you start this book you won't be able to put it down. This is the first book in the Winning Virgin series and it proves to be a wonderful start. I can hardly wait to see what the next book in the series will bring. Destiny Blaine has done an excellent job of creating a tale that readers won't soon forget." -- Angel, Romance Junkies
4 STARS: "I am not usually a fan of vampire novels. Vampires give me nightmares. However, Winning Virgin Blood has a biting appeal to it. Destiny Blaine has added just the right amount of wit to give readers a large, toothy grin. Orlando is the lead bloodsucker in this book. Natasha has spunk. I will just finish by telling you that if you like vampire romantica you will enjoy Winning Virgin Blood." -- Debra Gaynor, Review Your Book
4 TOMBSTONES: "Winning Virgin Blood is definitely a testament of wills between the sexes. Ms. Blaine heats up the intensity of the story right out of the gate on this book. What I enjoyed about this book is that Natasha didn't give in immediately to the demands of the arrogant Orlando. The lengths they both go through to get their way with one another is humorous, I found myself laughing out loud at several points in the story. The story was well written, fast paced, and a must read for anybody who wants a different spin on vampire romance this summer. I am really looking forward to the next books in the series." --Rachel, Bitten by Books
"Orlando's huge ego got in his way a time or two, but he was so taken by Natasha, he gave in to her whims quite a bit. I nearly laughed at seeing his ego knocked down a time or two. His instant love and devotion to Natasha was evident and I enjoyed watching him persuade Natasha to accept his gift of love and immortality. The end of this book sets us up for the next installment of the series, involving Orlando's twin brother and Natasha's sister. By their initial meeting, I am sure that their courtship is going to be just as exciting and difficult. I look forward to reading of Almonzo's fight for Tabitha." -- Melissa Conaster, ParaNormal Romance Reviews
