Love On The Beach Blog Hop.....


HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEACHWALK! 

Two years ago this month Beachwalk Press released our first books.  celebrate, we're hosting a Love on the Beach blog hop. This will run from July 1st through July 14th. Over 20 Beachwalk Press authors (including little old me) are participating and we have some fabulous prizes to give away.



The grand prize is a Kindle Paperwhite!

Additional prizes include:

* A beach tote bag filled with Beachwalk Press print books (winner's choice of 5 print titles)


* Two gift certificates of $25 each (winners' choice of GC from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or All Romance Ebooks). Also, each author will be giving away an additional prize of their choosing. 

That's almost 30 prizes in total! WOWZA!

I will also be giving away a £5 or $5 for USA winner Amazon Gift Card to add to that already impressive bundle mentioned above! :-D

I'm one of the new 'babes on the beach' having recently signed my first contract and book with Beachwalk Press (which is due for out on the 21st october 2013 may I just drop that in there!) They've been fantastic to date and I really hope to be able to sign more of those pretty little contracts with them in the future (if they'll have me!)


So, why did I choose to publish with Beachwalk Press? For a few reasons, actually. 

1). They came highly recommended by my dear friend, Aimee Duffy who would never tell a lie!

2). Once I started speaking with the editors and fellow Beachwalk writers, I knew this was my 'home'. It really is like a big family, so supportive, encouraging and some fantastic stories and authors to be amongst!

3). All of Beachwalk Press books have awesome cover art - and although I don't have mine yet, I KNOW for sure it will be shamazeballs

4). Although Beachwalk are friendly and have that easy-going approach, it is definitely professional, efficient and striving for perfection! I feel honoured to be a part of that trio.

So, as part of this sizzling hop of lurrrrve, I would like to share my blurb with you folks...I'm thrilled with it and cannot wait for Revenge In Rio to be out there in the big wide world for you all to read!

REVENGE IN RIO

Calculated revenge, unexpected passion…
Business magnate Luca Venancio is returning to Rio to pay his respects to his late brother, and to seduce his once fiancée, Daniella, back into his bed. Five years ago she left him without so much as a word, shunning him and the rich life he could offer in exchange for his younger, reckless brother. Now Luca wants revenge—seduce her and dump her, that's all he intends to do.
Blackmailed into a violent farce of a marriage, Daniella had no choice but to comply to protect Luca's life, even though it meant never being able to see him again. Years later, a twist of fate reunites them, throwing her plans of fleeing Rio out of the window and the love of her life straight back in.
Luca's flawless plan soon becomes complicated when he discovers Daniella is expecting his brother's child. It becomes even more complicated when old passions return. Can he actually go through with seducing her, bedding her, and then discarding her?

Revenge in Rio by Samantha Darling
Genre(s): Contemporary RomancePublication Date: October 21, 2013

  6. Thanks for the great giveaway hmm...my fav trope I dont really have favs but I guess I love a good love/hate or love/revenge relationship. Those times when you end up falling for someone you hated at first until you get to know that person better.

  13. Congrats on signing your contract!! Beachwalk definitely sounds like an amazing publishing company. So many nice words.

    My favorite storyline is an opposites attract. 2 people that shouldn't have any business being together. I love the conflict that comes from that.

  29. I have a fondness for the reunited couple. There is something magical about a couple that gets a second chance after they mess up the first chance.

    I look forward to reading about Luca and Daniella.
