Lori Foster - one busy woman!

Update: A dear friend of mine, Judy F., has offered up another book duo for giveaway - Lori's HEARTBREAKERS and SERVANT: THE AWAKENING! Thanks Judy, you're such a doll!
My good friend Lori Foster has releases and reissues all over the place right now (with even more coming up) and I thought I'd chat about a few of them, starting with SERVANT: THE ACCEPTANCE. This series has been a huge hit with Lori's readers and her "L.L." readers, but this is where I have to admit that I haven't read the first book in this series (yes, Lori knows this and no, she doesn't hate me for it!) and don't know if I'll read the second, but I do have the first one in the event I decide to start. As a matter of fact, I have three extra copies of the first book, SERVANT: THE AWAKENING. At Lori's get together in June there were a couple of books at each person's place at their table - dear friends Judy, Chris and Lisa gave me their copies to use for blog giveaways, as they already had copies (thanks, ladies!). More on the giveaway coming up!

DOUBLE THE PLEASURE will be coming out in December and I can't wait! Four very well-known authors of women's fiction share the bill on this one. I especially like the cover - clean and simple beats a glitzy, too busy cover anytime as far as I'm concerned.

CAUGHT! is the reissue of Taken and Say Yes. Thanks to Lori I also have a copy of CAUGHT! for giveaway. It just keeps getting better, doesn't it?

One more! THE WATSON BROTHERS is only available at WalMart stores. I have yet to see it at either of the WalMarts I frequent, so I'm hopeful it's been more available in other areas. It is the reissue of My House, My Rules, Bringing Up Baby, and Good With His Hands. Lori has also provided me with a copy of THE WATSON BROTHERS for giveaway.

Here's how I'm going to do this one. I'll draw one name for CAUGHT! and SERVANT: THE AWAKENING, another name for THE WATSON BROTHERS and SERVANT: THE AWAKENING, and a third name for SERVANT: THE AWAKENING. If I get to the bookstore between now and the time I draw names, I'll get a copy of SERVANT: THE ACCEPTANCE to put with the lone copy of THE AWAKENING, but I can't make any promises. Interested? I thought you might be! Post a comment below to be entered. If you're interested in one set of books and not another, feel free to mention that and you'll only be entered in that drawing. Is that clear as mud? lol I'll draw a name on Wednesday, November 5th.
Scan down, there are still two other contests running!

I LOVE Lori Foster- I just finished reading Truth or Dare and both Servant books, as I am on a mission to get/read all her books. I would be interested in winning either the Caught/Servant contest or the Watson Brothers/Servant. Thanks!

Allison('s)Reads said...

I love Lori Foster's contemporaries and haven't yet tried her Servant titles. Would love to win the set Watson Brothers/Servant: The Awakening. Thanks!

Angie-la said...

LOL! I understood what you were saying, Laurie!
I love Lori Foster and would be interested in any of these.

Yan said...

I'm in for Caught and Servant package =D


Cryna said...

Hi Laurie - I just wanted to let you know that you run such great contests.

The Watson Brothers I don't think was as readily available through Walmarts as one would think. It never made it to our Walmarts and I finally had to track a copy down through Amazon Used Book Dealers.

Please do not enter me in any of the draws - As I have the books. I just wanted to let you know that The Watson Brothers is not easy to come by.

Thanks for your generousity.

Stacy S said...

I'm for any of them! I meet Lori at a booksigning this past year. She's really nice & skinny!

Patty L. said...

I love Lori's books, but I must admit to never reading any of her L.L. books. (hanging head in shame) I missed the Get Together last year and everytime here about it makes me a little sad. Of course, I already have money saved up for next years event, to make sure I have my ticket and hotel paid in advance.

Laurie said...

I recently read "Causing Havoc".WOW! Books get lost in my TBR pile.
I've read her Winston Bros series but missed The Watson Bros. So Please put me in. I haven't read Taken or Say Yes (CAUGHT)... so please include me for that too.
Finally, I haven't tried her latest works: Servant. So I'd like to be in for all 3 contests. THANKS!

Lori Foster said...

Hey Laurie! thanks for modeling a contest around my books. :-)
DOUBLE THE PLEASURE (an anthology) is actually out in December. It's MY MAN, MICHAEL (a single title) that is out in February.

For anyone who looked for THE WATSON BROTHERS and couldn't find it, sorry about that! It was in a lot of WalMarts because I got a lot of reader feedback on it. Bummer if it didn't make it to your area.
Thanks to everyone who posted a kind comment! You all rock.

Big hugs,

L.L. Foster

Lori is fabulous! I've read most of these, but would love to be in the running for Caught (I think I missed "Taken") or The Watson Brothers (missed Sam's story).
Thanks, Laurie and Lori!!

I have been a Lori Foster fan for a few years now. The Watson Brothers never made it to my area either (just outside of Boston). I also shamefully admit that I have never read LL Foster. But, that is going to change! Please enter me

Cherie J said...

Put my name in the hat. I have not read any of these and would like to try them out.

Jane said...

I would love to win any of the prizes. I've only read "Hard To Handle" and some of her novellas in anthologies.

Susan said...

Lori's books are wonderful! The ones you that are in the contest I haven't read yet. *blushing in embarrassment*

Karin said...

I love Lori's books, including the new Servant series. I'd love to take part in this giveaway.

Judy F said...

I have all lori's books even the LL ones. Thought I haven't read them yet. Kinda of a chicken.

Lori is awesome;.

Hi, Laurie! Can I throw my name in the hat for Double the Pleasure. I agree with you - what a cover!!

I was a bit behind in posting, but I agree with you on the Blazes - but you are right with Ms. Match being a really good read. I'll have to check out the Allison Kent one also. You'd never steer me wrong.

Big hugs, Chris S.
Still anonymous because I can't figure out how to sign up. :)

Lisa F. said...

Laurie, you're a sweetheart to share Lori's talent with the www! I had completely forgotten about those books on the tables.

I'm looking forward to Lori having a new contemp release.

Jodi said...

Great contest Laurie! Please don't enter me as I do have all of them. Well, maybe not Caught, but I have the originals.

CrystalGB said...

Great contest. I love Lori's books.

Dena said...

I have never read any of Lori's books so this would be a great way to introduce me to her work. I've heard of her a lot but for some reason haven't read one of her books. I would be happy to win any of the books being offered. Have a great day.

limecello said...

Haha - I think I want what a lot of people want - I'd love to have a copy of "Caught!" And I cannot wait for "Double the Pleasure" to come out. I love Lori Foster's books :)

Cathy said...

What a wonderful giveaway, Laurie. I've read them all except for, Servant: The Awakening.

bamabelle said...

Wow, this is an awesome giveaway! I love Lori Foster! Please put me in. I would be happy to win any of the books. :)

Thanks Laurie, and Judy as well for the added books!

The only one I already have is SERVANT: THE AWAKENING, so of course I'd like a chance to read all the others.
