Book two in the USA Today bestselling Wedding Pact
series. 
Divorce attorney Blair Hansen is convinced that marriage
should be based on practicality, not passion. But as her own wedding
approaches, she finds herself remembering her law school boyfriend, the only
man she’s ever loved, and regretting what might have been. Then a twist of fate
lands Garrett back in her life, and the man who loomed large in her past is
suddenly casting a shadow over her wedding, making her question everything. To
complicate matters further, the job she loves is in peril, and she can feel the
‘perfect’ life she’s fashioned for herself start to crumble under her feet.
Could everything she’s believed about life and love be wrong? 
Garrett Lowry is a divorce attorney who’s ready to settle
down. The problem is that he can’t find a woman who suits him nearly as well as
the one he loved and lost. He broke her heart by playing the field after their
break up—something he’s always regretted. But after months of pining for Blair,
Garrett stumbles across her in a freak coincidence—and then destiny keeps
throwing them together, the coincidences becoming ever more unlikely. He’s
convinced it’s a sign they should give their love a second chance, but Blair is
engaged to another man—a man who is absolutely wrong for her. 
Can Garrett convince Blair that a player once isn’t a player
forever, and that happy endings aren’t just for dreamers?
New York Times and
USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City,
Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a
nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the
course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and
smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick
Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in own
her mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you
believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and
the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within
two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to
perform many
unspeakable tasks.
 She has six
children and hasn’t lost her sanity.
Or so she leads you
to believe.
 
 
 
   The shock on Blair’s face matched his own surprise at
his out-of-nowhere declaration. 
   Nana Ruby was going to kill him. 
   He’d had no intention of laying claim to the ring,
and in truth, he could give a rat’s ass about it. But damned if he was going to
stand by and let his punk cousin marry Blair, let alone with that ring.
   Now, instead of diffusing the situation, he’d
ratcheted it up to Def-Con 1. Jesus, he had to get things under control. 
   “I won’t rip the ring off the bride-to-be’s hand, if
that’s what you concerned about,” he said, dropping Blair’s hand and trying to
control his racing heart. “We’ll wait for Nana to come tomorrow night. She can
help make the decision.”
   This brought on a new round of shouting and dismay.
Whiney Neil tossed out the phrase “you’re her favorite.” While that was
probably true, he doubted Nana could help him get the girl, which was his real
goal. That one was all on him. 
   Blair looked on in confusion, making it abundantly
clear they’d kept her in the dark about the questionable ownership of her ring.
But soon her bewilderment turned to anger as she narrowed her eyes at
him. 
   “It’s time for all of you to pay up,” his aunt said
shaking the plastic cat jar. “Blair, you got off easy this time. You only owe a
dollar. Neil, you owe two, and you, Gene Neilson Fredrick, must owe at least
five between the drinking and the cursing.”
   Uncle Gene and Aunt Debra had a stare off for several
seconds before Gene caved. He must have decided to choose his battles because
he dug out his wallet and sheepishly stuck a five-dollar bill into the jar.
Neil put in his money and Garrett handed over a dollar when Debra shoved the
jar in Blair’s direction. 
   His aunt scowled at him. “Surprisingly, you don’t owe
anything.”
   Garrett tucked his money into the jar and winked at
Blair. “Oh, this is for the bride. Call it an early wedding gift. But it this
is for cursing, as the label suggests, you owe some money yourself, Aunt
Debra.” His eyebrows rose with mock recrimination. 
   “And I do believe I need to have a discussion with my
mother about my true parentage. No one ever told me I was a bastard.”
   Debra’s face turned red, although Garrett couldn’t
tell if it was from 
embarrassment or anger. Probably both.
   He’d earned a scowl from Blair for donating the money
on her behalf, but now he could tell she was trying to hold back a grin.
    “That was an unfortunate loss of self-control.”
The woman’s face twisted into disgust as she pulled her wallet out of her purse
and pulled out one dollar. She screwed an indignant expression on her face.
“The Lowrys seem to bring out the worst in me.”
   Blair tipped her head, her eyes dancing with
mischief. “Actually, Debra, you owe two dollars. One for informing your nephew
of his illegitimacy and the second for spelling out the home of you know
who.” 
   Debra’s eyes widened in shock. 
   “Blair!” Neil cried out in horror. 
   Garrett knew the Fredricks liked to tiptoe around his
aunt’s self-righteous attitude. 
   He was glad to see Blair hadn’t kowtowed like the
rest of them.
   “You know who?” Garrett asked in amusement. He
couldn’t help but take pleasure in riling up his aunt and irritating his
cousin. Especially since Blair seemed to find Debra as obnoxious as he did.
“Dare I ask who that is?”
   Blair lifted her eyebrows. “Why, the prince of
darkness himself.”
   “Lord Voldemort?” Garrett teased, shooting his aunt
an amused look.
   She wasn’t so pleased. “Who is this Lord Voldemort
you keep talking about? Do we need to add him to the kitty list?”
   Garrett burst out into laughter. He was surprised his
aunt didn’t already know about the notorious villain. 
   “No, Mom,” Neil said. “He’s a character from a
children’s book, which explains why Garrett is so enthralled with him.”
   Garrett noticed he left Blair off the naughty list,
but it didn’t stop him from giving her a look of reproach. She glanced away,
trying to hide her grin. 
   So his Blair was still there, lurking below the prim
and proper exterior. Just like he’d found her years ago.

Thirty-Three and a Half
Shenanigans
,
the sixth book in the USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Mystery series will
release on November 4, 2014.
Rose is called into action
when Neely Kate’s cousin goes missing and the police refuse to 
take it seriously. But
while the authorities—Rose’s ex-boyfriend, included—are certain the missing
woman has run away, mounting evidence points to foul play. Rose agrees to
help her friend, even if it means partaking in
Neely Kate’s shenanigans, including 
an impromptu trip to a
strip club.
And because trouble never
comes without a guest, Skeeter Malcolm, Fenton County’s newly crowned
underground king, resurfaces, saying he needs Rose’s visionary gift to track
down his enemies. He makes her the only offer she can’t refuse: The guaranteed
safety of her assistant DA boyfriend, Mason Deveraux, who is being threatened
by forces unknown. The Fenton County law enforcement is still abuzz about the
infamous Lady in Black, who took part in the underground auction that earned
Skeeter his crown. Can Rose risk a reprisal of her role?
As the stakes
continue to rise and the search for Neely Kate’s cousin becomes increasingly
complicated, Rose must struggle to keep both her secret identity and her sanity.
