This Week's Special Guest - Lucy Monroe

Award winning author Lucy Monroe sold her first book in September of 2002. Since then she has sold more than 50 books to three publishers and hit national bestsellers lists in the US and England.

She's a passionate devotee to the romance genre and loves talking writing, the industry and books with other writers as well as readers. Her highly charged, sensual stories touch on the realities of life while giving the reader a fantasy story not easily forgotten.

Whether it's a passionate Harlequin Presents, a sexy single title for Kensington or a steamy historical or paranormal for Berkley, Lucy's books transport her readers to a special place where the heart rules and love conquers all.


I absolutely love the tradition within the romance community (if not started by then very much brought to the forefront by Lori Foster) of authors and publishers donating their time, talents and often money to raising funds for charity. When I was approached about being part of the Hometown Heroes charity box set for Pets for Vets, I jumped at the chance. I believe in doing whatever we can to support our veterans and this charity box set was a fantastic way to say thank you. My story Change the Game is the re-titled, re-edited and revised with previously cut scenes ebook release of a previously published print book Come Up and See Me Sometime. Readers have been asking when this book would come out in ebook, so I feel like this box set with 16 stories for $1.99 is a gift to them as well. I'm delighted to be in a set with so many talented authors, some who are on my own autobuy list, and I hope you'll all take a chance on some new to you authors while raising money for a super worthy cause.

This Pets for Vets charity bundle is available for a limited time at a discount of $1.99.

    1. forgot to add my email:

  3. Just read the first 2 stories in the box set. Really enjoyed Lucy's story. Although Alex is kinda domineering and dictatorial, he is actually a softie at heart but he just doesn't know how to express it. I hope Win the Game is about Marcus and Veronica. Looking forward to reading their story.


  4. It so is, Donna. Well worth the money, no matter how you look at it. :)

    LOL Winnie...those alpha guys always come off bossy and then they learn. Right? :)Yes, the next book is Veronica and Marcus' story and it's a little more emotional.
