What a Texas Girl Needs - Release Day Party & A Contest!

Hiya, readers! So today is a kind of big day for me. In case you've been hiding under a rock or otherwise disconnected from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or any of the other usual debut romance novel, What a Texas Girl Wants, has a sibling! Yep, today is the release of my second Texas Girl book - What a Texas Girl Needs!

Here's the blurb: Vanessa Witte is ready to finally claim her life. The middle of three daughters born into the Witte family - a powerful Texas name - she’s been content to float through life. Being dumped by her shady ex? A blessing in disguise. Having a one-night-stand with Matias Barnes? Not one of her more stellar moments. But she’s back in Lockhardt with a secret and a reason to start fresh: A baby.

Matias Barnes knows all about society women - it’s part of the reason he left his wealthy family behind and took a job on a ranch. He doesn’t like the endless string of parties, the inane conversation, or the gold-digging tricks those women have perfected. But that doesn’t stop him from wanting Vanessa Witte. Mat knows she’s so not right for him, but with her back in Lockhardt, can he resist her charms long enough to really let her go?

Sensuality Level: Sensual

I'm so freaking excited - and nervous and a little cranky because, what with all the excitement I've missed a little sleep...but, for me, cranky goes away with new stuff so I'm holding a Release Week Contest so I can give y'all some cool stuff. Hey, if I can't get it, I'll give it!

Here are the rules, sometime between now and December 24 (Christmas Eve, and don't we all want to open a little som'n-som'n Christmas Eve???), do something to help me get the word out about What a Texas Girl Needs.
