Contest: Get Hooked on HelenKay!

What’s that my Vanna-esque Short Kid’s holding? Two HelenKay Dimon books (blurbs below) that you can win—including the one that locked HelenKay in as one of my favorite contemporary authors—Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy! And they’re both set in hot and steamy Hawaii.

A signed copy of HelenKay Dimon’s mass market re-release of Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy:

Annie Parks came to Hawaii to gather information and settle a score, not spend time handcuffed to a sexy stranger’s bed. Okay, so this particular stranger saved her from drowning after she was pitched overboard by some goons. And he’s about six feet of hard, Hawaiian muscle and gorgeous cool that’s making forgotten parts of her say, “A-lo-ha!” She needs to stay focused, but a side dish of Kane Travers is awfully tempting.

Kauai Police Chief Kane Travers is not a vacation kind of guy. So it figures that when Internal Affairs suspended him, he’d end up rescuing a sarcastic, dishonest, extremely hot redhead who is clearly hiding something. Amnesia? Yeah, right. Kane’s got half a mind to give Miss Whoever She Is something she’ll never forget. His cop senses tell him that the lady’s in deep and needs his protection. But how can he get her to tell him anything when all he wants is to take her home and do everything?


A signed copy of HelenKay’s new trade pb release, It’s Hotter In Hawaii:

Cassie Montgomery was in no mood for messing Around—until she got an eyeful of the sizzling-hot miscreant breaking into her half-brother Dan’s Hawaii home. Turns out he’s not a criminal, but a friend who’s just as suspicious of Dan’s “accident al” death as she is. Cassie’s beyond tired of bashing heads with thick-skulled local law enforcement, so there’s only one thing for it: team up with Caleb Wilson, and try to keep her secrets—and hands—to herself…

Having a gun trained on him is nothing new for Cal. But when said gun is brandished by a goddess sporting short-shorts, a bad attitude, and a hidden agenda? A man should consider his choices very carefully. Option one: Seduce first, ask questions later. Option two: Find out why she’s in his Air Force buddy’s torn-up house, then seduce her. Option three: Let the islands do their work and let the woman behind the weapon seduce him…

How can you win them?

Covers are one of the most fun aspects of books, so hop on over to HelenKay’s bookshelf (link will open in a new window) and check out her awesome covers. Then come on back here and tell us which is your favorite!

I’ll draw one lucky winner of the two books on Friday morning!

    You mean we are supposed to pick one??? That is just cruel. I love Hot as Hell but Holding Out For a Hero just draws my eye over and over and over again.

    I love Right Here, Right Now. There’s something about the way his head is thrown back – like he’s loving how she’s kissing him. Mmmmm….

    And thanks for holding all these contests! You rock :boogie:

    It was a tie for me. I love “To All a Good Night”, because who wouldn’t want to have a door opened by someone like that :heart:
    The other that I LOVED was the title for her upcoming release “Holding Out for a Hero”…yeah I would hold out for that one too!!

    Right Here Right now is my favorite. They are not exactly kissing, so it’s kind of a bit of a teaser!

    They’re all pretty fabulous, but Hot As Hell is my favorite–the guy on the cover looks so intense, and definitely not one to cross :devil:

    Great Abs! Mystery face…. You can use your own imagination …He’s opening the door on a relationship? affair? First meeting…. lot’s of possibilities

    Just to chime in…

    I’ve been really lucky with covers. Have never gotten a bad one. But I do like some more than others.

    My least favorite: HARD AS NAILS. I think he’s handsome and love the color but since the book is about a house rehab project I expected shirtless men with hammers…shirtless men with saws…shirtless men… You get the idea.

    My favorite: Too hard to pick but I continue to find the guy on the front of HOT AS HELL drop-dead-wowza hot. :heart: Also love the couples because they’re really sexy and don’t cross the line into sleazy.

    Thanks to all who offered an opinion and to Shannon for holding the contest. Huge thanks to those who like the HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO cover because I worried folks would think it’s too dark.

    Good luck! :cheer:
