#FrostOnFriday #Mustfollow #Free Snippets of Ruined by Tracy Wolff
Ethan Frost was a visionary. A genius. Every woman’s deepest, darkest fantasy—even mine. And, somehow, I was his.
He stole into my life like a dream. Turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true—especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give. Gave me everything of himself in return.
But dreams don’t last forever, and ours was no exception. Because my nightmares were darker, and my wounds deeper, than I could ever reveal. And much as Ethan wanted to protect me, the secrets we didn’t know we shared could only tear us apart.
Every Friday author Tracy Wolff will entice us with Free snippets of her upcoming release, RUINED, on sale 1/7/2014 – check out all the title details here
Become a #FrostOnFriday follower and get your fix of Ethan Frost our hero in Ruined, he is to-die-for, I hope you think so too – enjoy!

Super Sampler Saturday with Wild Child by bestselling author Molly O’Keefe
Monica Appleby is a woman with a reputation. Once she was America’s teenage “Wild Child,” with her own reality TV show. Now she’s a successful author coming home to Bishop, Arkansas, to pen the juicy follow-up to her tell-all autobiography. Problem is, the hottest man in town wants her gone. Mayor Jackson Davies is trying to convince a cookie giant to move its headquarters to his crumbling community, and Monica’s presence is just too . . . unwholesome for business. But the desire in his eyes sends a very different message: Stay, at least for a while.
Jackson needs this cookie deal to go through. His town is dying and this may be its last shot. Monica is a distraction proving too sweet, too inviting—and completely beyond his control. With every kiss he can taste her loneliness, her regrets, and her longing. Soon their uncontrollable attraction is causing all kinds of drama. But when two lost hearts take a surprise detour onto the bumpy road of unexpected love, it can only lead someplace wonderful. Read more

It figured that Audrey Parker would get dumped the day of her sister’s bachelorette party.
It was just her luck.
As Audrey stood outside of Wanna B’s bar with her cell phone to her ear, she couldn’t help but think how the day had started off so perfectly. She had spent the morning in bed with her boyfriend. Then she went for a day of pampering with her beautiful sister, Fallon, and all of Fallon’s friends. It was a wonderful afternoon and Audrey knew that tonight was going to be even better.
That was until the fireworks began. Read more
#Wild Wednesday Snippet – Molly O’Keefe author of soon to be released Wild Child
In this week’s snippet – the last one!!! I am introducing one of my favorite characters in the book, Reba. Reba the Hairless Chinese Crested dog.
“Hold your horses,” she muttered, then went into the bathroom with the carrier. Carefully setting it down on the floor, she unzipped the side and waited for what had to be the most ridiculous-looking dog to ever walk the earth to come barreling out. But there was only a whim- per from inside the carrier.
She’s spoiled, Jenna had said. Temperamental and demanding. You two are made for each other. Read more

Romance Readers – understanding the H/H + 15 book giveaway!
One of the most important things for me when reading a book is understanding the characters . . . what makes them tick . . . what motivates them. What about you? Let’s chat.
As a reader, I need to understand why the characters make the decisions they do and in order to have that understanding I need to know more about them, what are they like as people – their background, their upbringing. Readers need to relate to the characters, the H/H have got to be real, people you would want to know and above all they’ve got to think, act and talk like us – do you know what I mean? Read more

Happy Valentine’s Day from R@R
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!! Will you be our Valentine?
We’re all about fun at Romance at Random — we enjoy hearing from our readers and would love to hear from you today!
Straight from Wikipedia - what is Valentine’s Day:
Saint Valentine’s Day, commonly shortened to Valentine’s Day, is a holiday observed on February 14 honoring one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine. It was first established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD, and was later deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI.
The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”).
Modern Valentine’s Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.
Easy question, how do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? For me I’ll give my hubby a card, candy & I’m hoping I get flowers Some years we go out to dinner or a movie, what about you?
From all of us at R@R we’d like to wish you a very happy holiday!
Every week R@R chooses 5 winners to win a free book -winners are announced on Sunday – so stop on by daily & comment to increase your chances to win – winners are chosen randomly – Happy Romance!

Books you re-read + Giveaway!
Books you re-read . . . .
Why do you re-read a book?
Many of us re-read books because we forgot something about them and wanted to refresh our memories, or we were looking for something new to buy & nothing had really triggered our interest, or we just wanted to re-read the story because it was such an enjoyable book, right?
Historical romances seem to be some of my favorite re-reads – Stephanie Laurens, Cynsters, Devil, Rafe, all of those heroes keep me coming back to that series. Julia Quinn’s, Bridgertons, is another one that I love to go back to time & time again and immerse myself.
Something in those books resonates with us to make them books that we’ll read over & over again — either that the H/H are so endearing, the plot is fast & fun paced, or the authors voice & writing style are truly engaging & you love every moment you spend re-reading those books. Those are the books, that when you’re done reading them your whole being is uplifted from the pure enjoyment of that story.
What about you? Do you have favorites you enjoy re-reading? Do you re-read? Why or why not?
Remember, 5 randomly chosen commenters will win a FREE book every week – winners announced on Sunday – good luck!
