One Day Book Sale and Excerpt: The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken

 

“I have a proposition for you.” Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus’s mouth. It’s been years since Kacey’s seen her childhood friend Jake, but the minute Jake mentions his ill grandmother, Kacey is ready to do anything for the sweet old woman. And if that means pretending they’re engaged for her sake-so be it.

But Kacey wasn’t counting on Jake’s older brother Travis still being there. She calls him “Satan” for a reason: she’s never forgotten the way he teased and taunted her. Yet when they meet again, Travis’s gorgeous smile is a direct hit to her heart . . . and Kacey’s more confused than ever. As the days pass, only one thing starts to become alarmingly clear-she never should have accepted Jake’s deal . . .

Review, Excerpt, and Giveaway: Elect by Rachel Van Dyken

Elect-Launch-Day-Blitz

 

 

ELECT by Rachel Van Dyken (December 2, 2014; Forever Trade Paperback, $12.00)

Would you die for the one you love?
Nixon Abandonato made his choice. And now he has to pay the price. Tracey is the love of his life, but being with him has made her a target of his family’s enemies. The only way to keep Trace alive is convince the world she means nothing to him.

Trace Rooks has fallen irrevocably in love with the son of her family’s sworn rival, and she knows in her bones nothing can tear them apart. Until Nix suddenly pushes her away and into the arms of his best friend… But Trace isn’t ready to give up on a future with Nix–and if he won’t fight for them, she will.
In the end, a sacrifice must be made. A life for a life. For what better way to cover a multitude of sins than with the blood of a sinner . . .

We are big fans of Rachel Van Dyken here at Bookish Temptations, so I was very excited to hear that Elect was going to be published as a paperback.

Check out my review after the break….

Top Ten Tuesday with Elena: Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

 

toptentuesday

 

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Last week there was a very interesting and fun topic that I missed and I thought I’d highlight today: Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On a Deserted Island.

There are tons and tons of male characters I love and, as always, it’s very difficult for me to choose…But here are those characters I’m sure they’d be of great company on a deserted island… *ahem* 😉

THE DARE by Rachel Van Dyken Release Day Blast!




Today we’re happy to be participating in the Release Day Blast of THE DARE by Rachel Van Dyken!
 
Check it out!

 

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, comes
the third and final book in the New York Time’s Bestselling Bet Series…

Boring Beth Lynn has always lived up to her nickname… until she wakes up in a
hotel bed next to a sexy as sin state senator she re-connected with at a
wedding the previous night.
The biggest problem? She can’t seem to remember anything about the night before
except for crying into a box of cookies, and she’s pretty sure Grandma Nadine
slipped something in her drink. And what should have been a one night stand
turns into a six day adventure when Grandma whisks them off to Hawaii to save
them from the ensuing media firestorm.
Jace isn’t looking for commitment — he believes he made that clear when he
left the wedding with Beth. Then again, he can’t remember much of anything
other than the way her skin felt beneath his hands. Now he’s stuck with her at
some lame couple’s retreat and trying his hardest to fight the attraction only
a woman like Beth could invoke.
He doesn’t think it can get any worse.
But one spider attack… A donkey ride from hell… And an unfortunate episode
with Viagra tea — and there’s one thing Jace knows for sure: He should never
have agreed to Grandma Nadine’s suggestion in the first place.

Because if this isn’t paradise, and it isn’t a vacation — that only leaves one
option.
Survival.
But to make it through alive… they might lose their hearts in the process.
