Heroine profiles (via an awesome reader) and a giveaway

fan artPlease note: the giveaway is now closed.

I swear, I really do have the coolest readers. You guys make awesome fan art, like the one to the left (I love that I’m wearing the dress from the cover of Love Irresistibly) or the one here for Just the Sexiest Man Alive, and so many others. Recently, a reader named Wendy noted that I’d only posted profiles for the heroes in the FBI/U.S. Attorney series. Determined to rectify that situation, she sent me some profiles she’d created for the heroines.  Seriously, how awesome is that? So now, I happy share Wendy’s heroine profiles with you.

And to celebrate the general coolness of all my readers, let’s have a giveaway! Two randomly-selected winners will win a signed copy of any of the books in my FBI/U.S. Attorney series. (Except It Happened One Wedding, which isn’t out until May 6.) Giveaway is international and will be open until 9pm CST on Monday, Feb. 3rd. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below. (P.S. Those of you seeing this on my Goodreads page should click here and leave a comment at my blog to enter.)

Without further ado, I give you Wendy’s FBI/U.S. Attorney heroine profiles. Enjoy!

More fun foreign covers

Last night, I stumbled across some fun foreign covers for A Lot Like Love, and I thought I’d share.

Macedonian cover: I like that badge! And Special Agent Nick McCall is looking pretty foxy there. True, I think that skyline is New York instead of Chicago, but we’ll go with it.

And here’s the Bulgarian cover: Love the wine glasses! Good thing they didn’t make Nick’s wine pink. : )
