GIVEAWAY EVENT - Kicks off at

"Live" Chat

NOVEMBER 13th at 8 PM

 Eastern Standard Time


Chicago lawyer Sydney Knight and Texas bull rider Jace McGowan have nothing in common but everything to lose when they are thrust together during a weekend rodeo in rural Illinois. Neither one of them would have imagined two years ago that the deep attraction they sensed during a day-long outing would resurface when Sydney's boss assigns her to Jace's legal case. 

Sydney has been through a world of hurt since losing her dad when she was sixteen, then being dumped the morning of her wedding. She's sworn off romance and instead devotes her time toward a partnership in her father's law office. 

Jace has found faith in God and wants out of his sponsor contract with a risqué restaurant chain that requires him to pose with scantily-clad women. He's about to bail on the contract and pay steep penalties—something he can ill afford, given that his deceased father left the family with unpaid taxes.

1. I do not have a bucket list. I would be too discouraged as things seem to happen to change my plans too often. Please enter me for the opportunity to read and review the book.

1. I have never had one - but just always said I wanted to go to Scotland as the only thing I have ever wanted to do before I die. We just got back from there two weeks ago so now I need to find something new to want to do!!

My bucket list is very simple, spend time with my family, watch my grandchildren grow and if I am physically able, I would love to see Hawaii and take a European River Boat Cruise some day.

I would love to read Surprised by Love.

Hi all,

I've been trying to get into this discussion group and forgot my password and when I finally got a new password everyone was saying goodnight on the chat.

Please sign up for two drawings. One is the gift card and the other is a print or ebook (your choice) of one of the three books, Bucket List Dare, Surprised by Love in Lake Geneva, or Second Chance Love.

I'm currently writing the sequel to Second Chance Love. I don't have a release date on it as yet.

Sorry we missed you! Thank you for doing a giveaway. Hopefully we can catch you next month!

I like your question about Second Chances, Pamela. In general I am in favor of it, but in some circumstances it would be harmful to grant one. Such an example would be going back to a relationship with a person with a narcissistic or sociopathic personality. Too dangerous and hopeless. 

Please, enter me for both: GC and the book. I know, I am a greedy creature, but I can't resist a good book. 

I plan on never returning to the relationship i just came out of that is described by you. You are right, some second chances would be dangerous. I wish more people in Christian circles understood that. Generally, i believe in second chancs, too and am thankful for the Second chances God has given me!

I forgot to add please enter me in the gift card giveaway also.

1.  A few things on my list would be to travel to Italy, Greece, and Spain (perhaps on a cruise); to write a book or blog; and to remodel the house.  Please enter me in your drawing.  Thanks.

I don't have a bucket list, but I have always wanted to visit Hawaii, Italy, and the Caribbean. 

Please enter me for both the $10 gift card and the book. Thank you so much, Pamela, for the opportunity of these 2 giveaways!

I have never had a bucket list. I have no idea what I would put on it. I had a stroke two months ago and now I realize how little life seams, and how short it is!
I would like to read Surprised by Love in Lake Geneva and/or gift card.

My bucket list only includes places I want to go. Niagra Falls, Macinaw Island, Alaska, Hawaii. I may never get to go but it's fun to dream.
