Celebrating Two Releases For Lori Foster

Today we are celebrating two releases for Lori Foster - the Kenington reissue of her 2004 JUST A HINT CLINT and a very special, "first time in print" benefit anthology THE GIFT OF LOVE!


THE GIFT OF LOVE, a special benefit anthology featuring never before published stories from Lori Foster, Jules Bennett, Heidi Betts, Ann Christopher, Lisa Cooke, Paige Cuccaro, Gia Dawn and Helen Kay Dimon.

Families come in many configurations, and every one is unique, made up of the personalities of each member. But the love that connects families is universal. Whether it is the love of parents for their children, the love between a husband and wife, the love between siblings, a love that transcends generations, or even the love for a family member never met, the family ties that bind us are the strongest and deepest emotional connections we experience. Families influence a person's development, how they treat others, and how they view life. In The Gift of Love, eight exceptional writers offer a variety of unique perspectives on what family love means and how it impacts our lives in ways profound and often surprising.

All author and agent proceeds from the sale of the book will go to benefit The Conductive Learning Center, a special school for children with spina bifida and cerebral palsy.

JUST A HINT CLINT - Kensington reissue of Lori Foster's 2004 original.

Some Days, It Doesn't Pay To Get Out Of Bed

That's what crosses Clint Evans's mind the minute he takes on the four thugs holding heiress Julie Rose hostage. It isn't the danger that has Clint in a lather, but Julie herself. The pretty, petite schoolteacher he's been hired to return to her wealthy fiance is no fainting trust-fund baby. She's more of a hellcat, one who won't be deterred when she sets her sights on something. And her sights are set on Clint.

The one rule Clint never breaks is this - don't get involved with the client. He can look, but he definitely cannot touch - even if it's driving him crazy. Keeping Julie safe until he can figure out who's behind her kidnapping means never letting her out of his sight. And the closer he sticks to the feisty, seductive woman who makes him feel alive... the harder it gets for him to ever consider letting her go.

BUY THE BOOK *** READ THE EXCERPT

  1. Yeah!!! Super congrats on the release of another benefit anthology just in time for the Reader and Author Get Together this weekend!!!! You can bet I'll be getting my copy to have signed by the authors that will be there. And I'll be getting a copy or two to give away at the Island as well!!

    Lori, I think it's such an incredible thing that you do, not only to benefit charities, but also by helping authors get their work out to new readers.

    You are such a wonderful person and I can't wait to see you this weekend!

    Also, JUST A HINT CLINT is the very first Lori Foster book I ever bought when I first met you years ago - so this one brings back a lot of memories for me and I'm thrilled to see it reissued!

    Enjoy your very special day and I'm counting down the days until my favorite event of the year!

  12. Lori, love all your books! Reading the excerpt from Clint reminded me how much I loved reading it! Congrats!!

  13. Thank you DeNita and everyone else. :-) You're all too kind.
    I LOVE doing the benefit books. Helping others is a way to make you feel really good about yourself. If anyone ever gets down for any reason, I seriously recommend that you lend a helping hand - in whatever way you can - to someone else. It's an instant boost!
    I'm so fortunate that I'm in a position to do more and more, and I never want to take that for granted. It's because of the really wonderful readers that I'm where I'm at.
    So again, THANK YOU!

    big hugs,

    Lori

  14. Hi Anne,
    I don't yet know when the next single title L.L. will be out. I recently switching publishing houses - from Berkley to HQN - and HQN wanted me to have 3 single title romances out in 2011, back to back. I've been mega-busy getting that set up. I definitely won't have anything until after 2011, and I'm bummed about that. But I AM working on it, I promise!
    Thank you for reading the L. L. books.
    Hugs,

    Lori

  19. Happy Release Day to Lori & all of us who are lucky enough to be a part of THE GIFT OF LOVE with her. I was really delighted to be invited to participate in this great anthology. Not only did I get to work with Lori & write a story I loved, but I got to do a good deed that will hopefully help a lot of people. Anything to give my Karma a boost. :-D

  35. Congratulations ladies on the release of The Gift of Love. Can't wait to read this one.

    Lori, I bought & read Just A Hint, Clint when it originally came out, and it remains one of my favorite books!! I've already seen the re-issue on the shelves at my local Wal-Mart.

  36. Sorry I'm popping in late here. Had a family emergency.

    I have to say I was thrilled when Lori asked me to be a part of this anthology. I totally agree with her about lending a helping hand and lifting others up when you are down. I hope this book makes a great deal of money for this special school for the kids. I can't imagine what they live with (not to mention their parents).

    Make sure to get your copy and pick up one as a gift for a friend:)

    Hugs,
    JULES

  38. I love finding good new authors to read, I have never run across these women but saw the launch party and thought I'd scoot in and see what all the fuss was about. I'll be checking out both of these books, they sound really good. I can't wait to get The Gift of Love in particular, what an inspiration. Thanks Ladies!

    I don't know how this comment thing works, I'm just a teeny bit tech challenged, I don't have any of those profile thingy's so guess I'm just Anonymous tonight. -rynjam

  39. Just a Hint Clint is one of my favorite of your books. Have you ever thought of doing a reunion book with all of characters from this series? I would love to read more about all of the people from the series. I can't wait to read The Gift of Love.
