Bloggers! Have You Read Game For Marriage?

So I wrote this book as my other self (Karen Erickson) and GAME FOR MARRIAGE came out in January. Right around the time ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND did, as a matter of fact. Can I admit I was a total stress ball during this time? I had two pen names, two books out at the same time and they were both doing pretty great. I seriously thought OWG would be a slow burn and instead it turned into a raging wildfire. And you know what, GFM was a raging wildfire too! It was the number one bestselling series romance on Amazon. Not bad right?



Fast forward to…now. The second book in the Game for It series, GAME FOR TROUBLE, will be available October 28th. Review copies will be available soon. So my dearest bloggers and reviewers, I’m offering the first in the series, GAME FOR MARRIAGE to you for review if you haven’t read it yet. Please email me at missmonicamurphy @ (minus spaces) and I’ll get a copy to you!

If you’d like to get on the list for review copies of GAME FOR TROUBLE, email me at the above address and I’ll add you! As soon as the review copies are available, I’ll send one your way! Here’s the cover for GAME FOR TROUBLE (I love this cover!) and blurb:



He’ll play dirty to get what he wants…

Willow Cavanaugh would be happy if she never saw Nick Hamilton again. Sure, they had a short-lived fling many years ago, but now he’s back and acting like he wants a second chance. But Willow knows he’s way too much of a playboy to want to settle down with one woman. Plus, she’s got her heart set on a piece of real estate for her catering business that it turns out Nick owns…

Nick may be at the top of his game, but all he really seems to want is Willow. When he offers to sell Willow his commercial space if she agrees to a series of dates with him, jumping back into bed after each one seems like an inevitability. But what about when real feelings get involved?

Psst…Bloggers! I have something brewing for you too. A very special something I can’t wait to share. More info coming soon!
