Yours for the Taking -- out now!

Happy Friday, all!!

All week long, I've been wanting to do a shout out for Robin Kaye's latest contemporary romantic comedy release from Sourcebooks -- YOURS FOR THE TAKING -- especially after reading this fab review by Eloisa James in her B&N romance column!

I really love Robin's writing style, and she's just as funny and warm off the page as she is on it. Yours for the Taking is book #4 in her "Domestic Gods" series (the delightful Romeo, Romeo was her first, and it won the GH in 2007, too!) but you don't need to read the first three to enjoy this new one. You'll WANT to, though!! (You can check out excerpts for all of them here.)

I've had a bit of a wacky week trying to readjust to routine again, and I've been offline somewhat getting work done on a new draft... But I'm feeling more excited about this New Year, and all that's ahead, with each day. Here's hoping you've had a wonderful start to 2011! Anyone with special weekend plans?? (Me? Got to go workout -- again. ;)

I read Eloisa's review. I've also read other books by Robin, and this one sounds great.

We're expecting my husband's family over Sunday (which means I'll be cleaning tomorrow). They were supposed to come a few weeks ago, but they let a little thing like a blizzard keep them away. (Looking out my window, I see it's snowing right now. And we were planning on going out for Chinese tonight.)

Marilyn Brant said...

Oh, Edie, I feel for you on the cleaning thing...ugh. I do hope your in-laws won't have any trouble getting to you this time, though. And I'm sending up prayers that NONE of us will be in for a blizzard anytime soon -- we've had quite enough of that this winter already!

Wishing you a great weekend, and fingers crossed you got to have that Chinese dinner tonight -- yum ;).

Hey Marilyn, thanks for turning me on to another author! Just purchased the book for my Kindle and can't wait to start reading.

I'm on the upswing from my week long bout with the flu and hopefully will start writing again. Good luck with your new manuscript!

So glad to hear your new book is coming along! No big weekend plans here.

Robin said...

Happy Sunday, Marilyn! The weekends go way too fast, don't they? Tonight I'm headed to dinner and a movie with a friend. We're going to see The King's Speech, which I'm really looking forward to!

Thanks for the shout out about Robin's book and happy writing on your new draft!

Marilyn Brant said...

Maria, I'm so sorry to hear about the flu!! Glad you're feeling better...

Caryn, unless you count taking down our Christmas tree and sweeping/vacuuming up needles for an eon, we had no big plans either ;).

Robin, I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts about the film!! I've heard friends say is was really well done, so I hope you'll enjoy it a lot!!

You are going to have an awesome year!! It is hard getting back into the swing of things. But I love the feeling the new year gives:)

Marilyn Brant said...

Thanks so much, Tonya!! I wish you a truly wonderful 2011, too! Here's to a great one for all of us ;).
