Guest Author: Dianne Castell featuring Hot and Irresistible "Southern Comfort, Savannah Style"

Wednesday, October 21

In a city of history, mystery, and more than a few ghosts, four best friends who have never fit in anywhere except with each other are about to get close—and closer still—to four sexy bachelors with some very alluring secrets...

Southern Comfort, Savannah Style...

Bebe Fitzpatrick’s hard upbringing taught her how to take care of herself, how to tell true friends from false, and how to be a good cop. She can also sweet-talk a man like she means it...until she stumbles into the arms of a damn sexy Yankee who’s gunning for Savannah’s favorite shady entrepreneur...

As far as Donovan McCabe is concerned, the main obstacle to his investigation is the one thing he can’t help wanting in his way. Bebe’s smart, sasy, and utterly oblivious to her own appeal. Add the fact that a Boston cop trying to arrest one of Savannah’s best-loved citizens is about as popular as the reincarnation of General Grant. What Donovan needs is a better game plan. What he’s about to get is southern “hospitality” that’ll make his toes curl...


Hot and Irresistible is the second book in my Savannah Sizzles series and those two titles tell all.

Nothings more fun or steamier or more intriguing than falling in love in Savannah . Have you ever been? Then you know the restored mansions, the subtle glow of the old lamplights through the big live oaks, the clip-clop of the horse drawn carriages, jazz wafting from an open window and whispers of ghosts and voodoo and things that happened long ago make this a city like no other. And the Southerners who live there are unique characters who live a little slower, cook a bit better and fall in love hard and fast and forever.

My goal was to make the reader feel as if they were there with my characters living in Savannah. I wanted it to be about the South and about romance and the problems and rewards of living and loving. Hot and Irresistible has a Yankee hero who just doesn’t get that who your parents are play a big part in who you are. That the Civil War was truly that unfortunate Northern occupation and that friendships run true and fast and deep and last a lifetime and are often sealed in blood.

Hot and Bothered was the first book in the series. In old-South Savannah, family name and seasoned money mean a lot...especially when you don’t have either. So, Charlotte , Prissy, Bebe and BrieAnn bonded because they didn’t really have family like the other kids and swore they’d never look up their biological parents...if they didn’t love us enough to keep us then the hell with them. Then twenty years later Otis Parish died and everything changed.

Hot and Irresistible and Hot and Bothered are fun and romantic, steamy and very sexy. The stores will take you away and make you want to visit Savannah with your own special someone. I loved writing these books and wish you a good time reading them.

Savannah is a great setting for a story. It is beautiful and filled with history. My husband and I try to visit there once a year. In fact, we were there this past weekend.

HOT AND IRRESISTIBLE and HOT AND BOTHERED sound like wonderful stories. Fun, suspenseful and sexy!

Savannah is a special city. We just passed through, but liked what we saw. We will be going back when we have time to stay and enjoy it.
Good luck with the series.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
