Hosted by Books To Go Now

May 22th-29th

Remember the song Hot Summer Nights?

There was a time not too far gone
When I was changed by a song
On the radio and in my car
The pounding of an electric guitar
Then came a time to make a stand
We started up a four-piece band
And the heat felt like spotlights
In the heat of a hot summer night
Ooh hot summer nights
Ooh hot summer nights

Does this bring back fond memories? Or is it another song or maybe a book that reminds you of sun, sand or a hot summer fling?

Come on! Tell us about your favorite summer memory!!

Hop over to the bloggers giveaways and posts.

I'll be giving away an eBook copy of my latest release, The Corny Myers Series to one lucky person.

The first time together, The Corny Myers Series. Quirky pet detective, Corny Myers, can talk to animals to solve cases, but will this help her pull together her love life?

Klutzy Love

Opening a pet detective agency is Corny's lifelong dream. While out celebrating with her best friends, Corny meets Steve, the sexy, pine cone scented Seattle narcotics cop or is he really a serial killer? Will her heart survive long enough to find out?

Flamingo Blues

In the pursuit of the perfect Christmas getaway in Victoria BC; Corny steals a tour bus; returns a flock of stolen flamingos to their favorite lake; buys Steve, her tough-as-nails Seattle cop boyfriend, front row seats to the Cirque du Soleil. But will Corny get the bright shiny new key she wants for Christmas?

Be Mine

Corny struggles to come up with five days of perfect Valentines gifts for Steve, her tough-as-nails Seattle cop boyfriend. Time is running out. Can she pull it all together for the perfect Valentine’s Day celebration?

The Ex

Corny's excitement over serving on jury duty is squashed when she hears news of Steve's ex girlfriend relocating to Seattle. Steve thinks Celeste can do no wrong. Celeste has set her sights on rekindling her relationship with Steve. Being an FBI agent she's used to getting what she wants, no matter what the cost.

Also, I'll give away a pretty organza necklace with three pretty rings, to one lucky person. (US only)

Sharon Kleve was born and raised in Washington and currently lives on the Olympic Peninsula with her husband.

She loves romance. She loves reading romance, living romance, and especially loves writing about romance. She gets no greater feeling than watching her characters come alive in each other's arms. Most of all, she loves giving her characters the happily ever after they deserve—with a few bumps and bruises along the way.

One of her favorite things to do is picking up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing herself in the emotions between the characters. She hopes to inspire her readers the same way her favorite authors have inspired her.

When not writing, she can usually be found either curled up in her recliner with her cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels.
