LONE STAR SURRENDER - the latest from Lisa Renee Jones - there's a great giveaway!

Lisa Renee Jones has a January Blaze on the shelves now - LONE STAR SURRENDER - and it's a winner, just as you would expect from Lisa! Check out what Romantic Times had to say about it:
LONE STAR SURRENDER (4.5) by Lisa Renee Jones
In this sizzling-hot adventure, undercover FBI agent Constantine Vega has to trust U.S. Attorney Nicole Ward with his life. He’s been working for a drug lord, and now a case is going to court and it’s time for him to testify. Before the trial starts, someone betrays him, possibly his own people, and he and Nicole go on the run. Constantine has learned to trust no one, but as he and Nicole escape possible death, they bond to stay alive. Nicole has her own issues regarding control, and Jones vividly shows her progression as they grow to depend on another. Very sexy and fast moving, this is a book not to miss. — Romantic Times BOOKreviews

And here's a great excerpt - are you tempted? I hope so!
Here's a brief review from me:
Constantine Vega has spent the last three years of his life undercover, chumming with a dangerous drug lord, gathering evidence for trial. When federal prosecutor Nicole Ward needs to talk to him about his testimony, even the secret location of their meeting may not be enough to keep them safe. Constantine and Nicole had met earlier at a nightclub when he sought her out at a celebration for her sister. Little did she know during their brief but intensely passionate encounter that he was the witness she so desperately needed in seeking a conviction against the deadly Alvarez. The two meet at a secret location, but it appears there's a leak on the inside and soon they're on the run. Constantine finds himself fighting to evade the bad guys in order to get himself and Nicole to court in time for the trial, but first he'll have to keep them alive.
I highly recommend this book and suggest that you visit Amazon to get a copy!
Now, on to the good stuff! I have three pairs of books for giveaway, thanks to Lisa's incredible generosity:
1 - A copy of LONE STAR SURRENDER and ALLURING TALES
2 - A copy of LONE STAR SURRENDER and ALLURING TALES II

I enjoyed LRJ's story Purple Magic in the Exclusive anthology. I had just missed the Blaze title Hard and Fast so I will be looking out for this latest one in the store!

Laurie said...

Lisa Renee Jones would be a new author for me. So I can't comment on a favorite book or character. I liked your review of Lone Star Surrender. I'd be interested in finding out what happens between Constantine & Nicole!

CrystalGB said...

I have not read any of Lisa Renee Jones' books. I would love to read her blaze books. :)

Lisa F. said...

I've read Exclusive, Hurts So Good, and Hard and Fast. No favorites for me, I've enjoyed them all. Nice contest! Thanks Laurie and Lisa.

flchen1 said...

I've read Lisa's contributions to AT and ATII, and have Exclusive on the TBR--no favorites yet, but I know I can expect an exciting, passionate story from her!

Cindy said...

I'd have to say that Lone Star Surrender may be my favorite book cover of hers. Sounds like a great story too!

Karin said...

I've thoroughly enjoyed Lisa's Knights of White series. All of the stories in the series have been fantastic so far and I look forward to all of the others.

I also really likee reading Hard and Fast.

So far, there hasn't been anything by Lisa that I haven't liked.

I love Lisa's books. I just finished reading "Damned, Dangerous and Delicious". I have enjoyed reading her books in the past: esp. "Hard and Fast" - love books about hot athletes. I look forward to reading "Lone Star Surrender".

While I love all her books, Hard and Fast is my favorite book by Lisa and I think it's her best cover!

robynl said...

what a great prize; I haven't read Lisa Renee Jones yet but sure like the sounds of this one. An undercover FBI agent- should be a great hero in Constantine being he is undercover - strong, straight, able to be someone he isn't. I'd love to see how Nicole affects him.

Mandy B. said...

I love L.R.J.'s Underground Guardians series--"Protector" and "Healer." I wish she had more out on that series. **Wink, wink; nudge, nudge** ;)

Susan said...

I haven't read any of her books. I am going to change that! Your review has me wanting to read "Lone Star Surrender" right now.

Judy F said...

Hard and Fast was the first book I read by Lisa. Loved it and have also read the Knights of white series.

Great review Laurie! I've read a couple of Lisa's books and liked them a lot. I'm definitely looking forward to Lone Star Surrender. Great cover!

I have to admit that I have yet to read a book by Lisa Renee Jones :X - but her books sound so intriguing! "Lone Star Surrender" caught my eye, and I have it on my book list for me next harlequin purchase. Loved the excerpt - and what a great giveaway.
Good luck everyone, and thanks to Lisa and Laurie for the contest!

Kammie said...

I haven't read Lone Star Surrender, but I have it on my wish list. The very first book I ever read by Lisa was called Going Too Fast in 2003. It was from an ebook seller. I knew then that someday she would be with a big publishing company. Her stories never disappoint!

I would love to win this book. I visit your website often.

I've just read Hurt So Good by Lisa and really enjoyed it. I love steam in my books and this one fit the bill. I look forward to reading her other EC books.

HelenKay Dimon said...

Just wanted to pop in and say that I love this cover. I haven't seen many FBI angets walking around without shirts on, but this cover proves they should. Wowza.

ddurance said...

Lisa's books are smokin' hot! I mean just look at the guy on the cover. Yowza! LOL
