Giveaway of Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer, ends Monday July 16

Drama, Chemistry, Action!
Did I say chemistry? Oh, mercy, does this book cook on a Bunson burner of romance and suspense!

Meredith has loved Travis Archer since she was a child, rescued by his gallantry after schoolyard bullies caused her a mishap on Archer land. A decade later, she must come to his rescue when a wicked man's ambition puts the Archers in the crosshairs. Her unchaperoned arrival would compromise her reputation unless one of the bachelor brothers agrees to marry her. The Archer men draw straws for her hand, and the rest of the story explodes off the page with color, effervescence and sizzle you won't want to miss!

Passion abounds in Texas between a rugged rancher and one feisty girl. Travis must learn to release the death grip he holds on everything under his control. Behind his uber-masculine facade beats a deliciously vulnerable heart, one that the reader will latch onto with the same tight hold. Meri longs to believe that she is desirable and not merely a responsibility. The emotion and tension simmer until that last satisfying page turn.

This is the best book yet by a very gifted writer, Karen Witemeyer. Still holding my smelling salts close after swooning hard for this one!

I have read all of Karen's books, and this is my favorite so far. She holds a Masters degree in Psychology, and it really shows in the depth of her characterization.  I really wanted to keep my influencer copy, but then I decided this story is so good, someone else deserves a chance to read it. I am giving my gently used copy away to one random commenter, to be chosen on Monday, July 16th. Please be sure to leave your email addy with your comment so I can contact the winner.
