Sizzling Books of Summer Giveaway Hop

Welcome to our stop on the Sizzling Books of Summer Giveaway Hop. This hop is hosted by My Secret Romance Book Reviews and it's all about showing off our favorite reads of the summer. And to make it super fun we're adding a mixed drink recipe that we think would go along great with our favorite choice. Make sure you check out the list of other participating sites below and our giveaway, which is the rafflecopter. :) Enjoy!!!

Anna's Favorite Book of the Summer
Misplaced Princess
by: Mari Carr

Annie Prince has impetuously flown halfway ’round the world to visit a sexy cowboy she met online—only to find herself stranded in Sydney. Seems she and Dylan crossed wires, and he’s on his way to New York. His twin, Hunter, saves the day and whisks her back to the family cattle station. Hunter’s as easy on the eyes as Dylan, and even easier to talk to. Annie might have flown to Oz to meet one brother, but soon sparks are flying with the other.

Hunter considered Dylan a dumb arse for jetting off to America for some stranger—until he met Annie. Turns out the New Yorker is a smart, funny, hard-working jillaroo…and hotter than the Aussie desert. Hunter’s not normally one to poach his brother’s women, but he can’t keep his hands, lips, tongue and other body parts off this sexy city girl.

When raging lust leads to emotional attachment, where does that leave Annie and Hunter when her vacation comes to an end—or when Dylan finds out?

Anna's Drink Choice
Margarita Cocktail

1 1/2 oz tequila
1/2 oz premium triple sec (preferably Cointreau)

Rim the glass with lime juice and dip in salt. Shake all ingrdients with ice, strain into glass and serve.

FranJessca's Favorite Book of the Summer

Hell On Wheels
by: Julie Ann Walker

He’s the bad boy she’s always wanted...

Nate “Ghost” Weller has loved Ali Morgan nearly half his life. But he’s done something so heinous he’s convinced she’ll never forgive him if she discovers the truth, so he keeps his feelings and his secrets to himself. Then she blows into town with a mother lode of bad guys on her tail and Nate can’t deny she’s in serious trouble. Unfortunately, he’s the only one who can help her.

She’s the good girl he’s kept at arm’s length...

Ali knows Nate as the most solemn, aloof man on the planet. Sadly, he’s also the sexiest. For years she’s avoided him, unable to stomach his dark scowls and brooding silences… especially when she secretly yearns for his touch. Now she must rely on him to save her from the malevolent shadows ghosting her every move. When the bullets explode, so does their passion. But can love really conquer all? Or are some things just too terrible to forgive?

Fran's Drink choice:

Sex on the Beach


1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz peach schnapps
2 oz cranberry juice
2 oz orange juice

Add vodka and peach schnapps to a highball glass over ice. Fill with equal measures of cranberry juice and orange juice and stir.
