  1. Congrats, Heather! I have totally told my readers to check out Ethan if they haven't already discovered him! (They love a man with a firm...hand. Lol)

    And what a great summer reading list this is. My readers are always asking me what to read while they wait for me to finish the next book, so I am going to share this one with them!

    Thanks to my fans who voted for your hottest hero. I now have the honor of having the hottest father-son duo in literature! :)

    Thanks, Pearls Inner Goddess, for all the hard work (and math!) that went in to calculating the top 10 list! And thank you to all the authors who open a vein regularly so that we can read about these worthy (and HOT!) heroes.


  2. Thank you for the giveaway by all the wonderful authors and for Inner Goddess for drawing my name!

    1. Congrats, Tracey!!! I will be contacting you for more info so we can get the package out to you. And thank you for sharing your favorite Hottie with us!

  9. A WELL deserved win Heather. You have some of the hottest men in books ...keep them coming ;)

  10. Congrats to all the winners. I have read several of these and voted for them too. There are no losers here! Bringing attention to some awesome books and awesomer authors is what it's all about. Bringing attention to the genre will help more authors take the plunge into the books we want to read!

    Thanks to my partner in crime and my bestie, Ms. pearls for all the work, the dedication, the idea for this contest (and most all of them if I am being honest). She is an amazing friend, great partner, and wonderful ideawoman. You won't find anyone who works as hard as she does at promoting these books and authors, I can promise you!
