One conference, two friends, two men who know how to take care of business.

Blurb: After leaving the wrong man, Leah Griffin’s not ready to look for the right one. All she wants is to survive the conference she’s planning and spend some time with her best friend Kate Edwards. She’s not expecting the conference services manager to be so tall, dark and handsome…or so eager to please. It’s Brandon Long’s job to make Leah happy, but after a scorching interlude in her hotel room, neither can deny business has become pleasure.

Smart, driven and successful attorney, Katherine Edwards has spent her life making the right choices. Directly counter to those right choices, she’s involved in a long distance, secret love affair with a co-worker. Charles Dixon is a bad choice she can’t help but make รขโ‚ฌโ€œ over and over. A conference and a promotion bring Kate back to Pennsylvania and suddenly, Dix wants far more than a few nights in random hotel rooms. He wants something permanent and Katherine has to figure out if sometimes a wrong choice isn’t exactly what a woman needs.

This is an ARC contest for my and Megan’s Taking Care Of Business. (we put the blurb and cover up above this) The intent of an ARC is to get readers and reviewers talking about the book – so essentially what we’re asking people to do is talk about the book – review it at your blog or at your reader group or review site between mid February up until March 31 when the book releases.

The winners just send us the link with their review and agree let us quote it here and at our websites (with proper attribution, natch). We don’t require that you like the book although we hope you do!

THE RULES (please read carefully) All you need to do to enter is reply to this post and tell us where you’d be talking about the book if you win (urls are always helpful if you mean your blog!). we’ve got a limited amount of ARCS so we’ll choose winners based on that supply.

We’ll announce the winners by Noon February 7 – please include an email so we can notify you and get your mailing address!

Good Luck!!
