A new book from Alison Kent, with a giveaway!

Alison Kent has a new release! Yay!! I’ve written a review and there will be a giveaway, so pay attention!

About the book:
When car trouble sends Lise Kimball into the sweaty, sultry Mississippi south, she wants nothing more than a new tire and a place to spend the night before continuing her trip to New Orleans.
What she doesn’t want is to find herself stranded in the company of Donovan True, a man as controlling as the one who drove her from Atlanta.
Except Donovan takes charge in ways Lise has never known. Being at his mercy might be exactly what she’s been looking for.

My review:
Lise Kimball has faced some daunting obstacles, and flat tire be damned, she's through with feeling helpless. Being married to a verbally abusive husband has served to make her stronger and more determined than ever to live life for herself. A chance meeting with the irresistible Donovan True while on her way to New Orleans brings to surface wants and desires that Lise had extinguished long ago. Nevertheless, she's unsure about trusting another man who is unbelievably capable of taking charge.
Donovan True is a successful, confidently strong man and when he meets Lise and discovers he feels more than a simple physical attraction despite having just met her, he's helpless against that instant attraction.
It's no secret that I have adored Alison Kent and her work for many years and I have to admit that I thought this book, given its length, might be a little rushed and perhaps even limited in believability. I was so very wrong with that line of thinking. The story is fast-paced but not to the detriment of character strength and realism. Alison Kent is an artist when it comes to putting words on paper and she never fails to engage her readers. I give AT HIS MERCY my highest recommendation. The book may not take hours to finish, but successfully tells a beautiful love story.

If you go here you'll find an excerpt and all of the ordering information you could possibly want.
I'm giving away three Kindle downloads of AT HIS MERCY. Don't forget that you DO NOT need a Kindle to read Kindle books. There are multiple options on Amazon's site for reading Kindle books. Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered in the draw. I will draw three names on Monday, June 6th. And remember, you need to check back to see if you've won because I won't track you down. Good luck, everyone!!
Thanks for checking out this wonderful book and special thanks to Alison for allowing me to read and review AT HIS MERCY for you.
