Christina Cole Romance

Discover the power of love

It’s a Celebration!


Yes, we’re celebrating today, and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to join in the fun. It’s a huge 3rd anniversary bash for Secret Cravings Publishing. I’m thrilled to be one of their romance authors.

SCP Blog Hop 1-15

Each month Secret Cravings releases new titles in a multitude of genres, so every romance reader can find exactly what she — or he — is looking for.

Of course, I’m especially excited that this month, one of my historical romances will be included in the “new release” list.

Not the Marrying Kind“Not the Marrying Kind” is the first in a series of love stories set in my fictional little town of  Sunset, Colorado, back in the late 1800s. If you like romance, if you like westerns, if you like history…well, I’m hoping you’ll love “Not the Marrying Kind” and the folks who live in Sunset.

Be watching Christina Cole Romance for more information on “Not the Marrying Kind — release date January 23.

Thanks for letting me share my exciting news! Now, let’s get back to the excitement of this fantastic 3rd Anniversary Celebration.

Over the past three years, SCP has published over 900 titles from more than 250 authors. I’m proud to be part of the SCP family.

Now, for the real excitement! Prizes! Gifts! Giveaways Galore! All for you, dear readers. Twenty-four authors are participating in this celebration. Yep, twenty-four…which means two dozen opportunities to enter giveaways and win prizes. Each author will be giving away a gift or two — plus there’s a fantastic grand prize just waiting to be won.

Here’s what I’m giving away!

Books. Books. Books.

For a chance to win one of three copies of Not the Marrying Kind, leave a comment on this post. Be sure to include your email address and the ebook format you prefer — Nook, Kindle, or PDF. At the end of our anniversary celebration, I’ll randomly choose three winners.

But wait…there’s more!


If you’re here, it’s no doubt because you’ve been directed here from the Secret Cravings Publishing blog. Along with prizes from individual authors, you can win BIG PRIZES from SCP.

Prizes include an IPAD2, a Kindle Fire HDX, a $50.00 Gift Card, and a $25.00 Gift Card.

How do you win? You probably already know, but in case you landed here without visiting the SCP blog first, here’s how it works.

This is a scavenger hunt. Each author has been given a “letter” for you to find. Mine is hidden somewhere on this blog, so  you’ll have to browse around a bit. Find it, write it down, then visit the other participants and collect letters from them.

Put them all together, email your answer to Dawne Prochilo and you could be one of the big winners.

You’ll find Dawne’s address — and complete instructions — on the Secret Cravings Publishing Blog. So hop along, now! Collect the winning letters by visiting your favorite SCP authors:
