Beach Reads: Win $10 Amazon Gift Card & Signed Print Copy of The Guardian's Wildchild

style="clear: both; text-align: center;">
'Stuck in Books' is hosting another fun blog hop.
This is all about finding that perfect book for reading on the beach. It's been a long while since I've baked on the beach. However, I do have two great read recommendations.

For the young and spicy generation .....
Third Daughter, by Susan Kaye Quinn

Skyships, saber duels, and lots of royal intrigue... and, of course, kissing.

The Third Daughter of the Queen wants her birthday to arrive so she'll be free to marry for love, but rumors of a new flying weapon may force her to accept a barbarian prince's proposal for a peace-brokering marriage. Desperate to marry the charming courtesan she loves, Aniri agrees to the prince's proposal as a subterfuge in order to spy on him, find the weapon, and hopefully avoid both war and an arranged marriage to a man she does not love.

Third Daughter is the first book in the The Dharian Affairs Trilogy (Third Daughter, Second Daughter, First Daughter). This steampunk-goes-to-Bollywood (Bollypunk!) romance that takes place in an east-Indian-flavored alternate world filled with skyships, saber duels, and lots of royal intrigue. And, of course, kissing.

From the author of the bestselling Mindjack Trilogy, The Dharian Affairs is a new series filled with equal doses of action-adventure and romance, meant to appeal to fans of Mindjack.

Second Daughter (The Dharian Affairs #2) is also now available!

The Dharian Affairs is now OPTIONED FOR VIRTUAL REALITY by Immersive Entertainment!

For the hot and bothered women's generation ....
Late Nite With Andres by Debra Anastasia

Late Night With Andres: Rising-star blogger Milla Kierce knows she’s arrived when she sees the swag basket in her dressing room on the night of her late-night television debut. But before she can bite into the muffin that symbolizes her success, gunfire echoes through the TV studio.

She’s just hidden herself (mostly in plain sight) when the door flings open. Instead of a gunman, there stands one of the world’s most popular rock stars, Gage Daxson, looking for his own way out of danger.

Thrown together, they’ll battle a venomous man seeking revenge and his own sexual pleasure, but they may never leave the building again. Distracted by fear, fame, and infamy, can these two somehow find their way to each other?
Equal parts horrifying and hilarious, Debra Anastasia’s Late Night With Andres offers more than a few twists and turns—and, of course, enough heat to keep things interesting.

Every single cent generated from sales of Late Night with Andres will be donated by Debra Anastasia, Omnific Publishing, and all the staff members involved, to Save the Ta-Tas to assist in the battle against cancer—because cancer sucks.

Check out Debra's Pougkeepsie series. I LOVED them.

Songs of Summer, hosted by The Armchair Squid

The Armchair Squid: Ah, summer. Sunny mornings full of possibility, lazy poolside afternoons and rockin' nights lit by tiki torches. What songs bring back the sunscreen and beach-sand to you? What songs defined your one perfect summer, be it decades ago or just yesterday?

Welcome to the Songs of Summer bloghop, hosted by the Armchair Squid, Cygnus and Suze. Please join us by posting 5 of your favorite summer songs and sharing some memories about them. Maybe between us, we can build the perfect soundtrack to accompany us over the next few months. If possible, include links so we can hear these gems. And, if you're in the southern hemisphere, join us to dance those winter blues away!

Be sure to bounce on over to the rest of the participating bloggers. Click on the image to see the list.

Feather: I resisted this blog hop. But when it comes to music and summer, its a combination that makes me weak in the knees. Why resist? This is going to seriously date me! Like, who remembers any of these?
