Lady Jane's Salon June 2013

It was a hot and stormy Southern night, but LJS RDU took the heat up a notch!

Tammy Falkner and Claudia Dain
Tammy read from her bestseller, Tall, Tatted and Tempting

Mari Freeman thrilled us with her Valkyries, reading from Dirty Little Freaks

And Gina Lamm had us laughing with her Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl

We had such fun and we always enjoy the fabulous mix of readers, authors, librarians and booksellers who frequent the salon, but this month we have to send out a huge THANK YOU for our generous attendees.  We collected an entire truck full of donations that will go to help SafeSpace in their work with women and children who are victims of domestic abuse!  Thank you all!

A Little Heat at the June Salon

To start off this summer, we are happy to bring you three more wonderful romances readings at the June Salon....

...BUT first, we're doing something a little different this month for one of our charities - Safe Space of North Carolina. They are looking for donations for their Thrift Shop, which helps to fund the charity. So instead of a slightly used romance novel, this month you can take the chance to de-clutter your space for Safe Space. So this month only,  you can bring a box or tightly tied bag of new or gently used clothes for admittance into the salon.  AND now back to our regularly scheduled blog...

Award winning author TAMMY FALKNER will read from her latest release - TALL, TATTED and TEMPTING.

She’s locked up tight. But he might be the key. 

Logan Reed is tall, tatted and tempting. Kit’s a woman with a mean right hook and a secret. 

Kit wants a tattoo, but Logan sees more than the pain and hopelessness in her drawing. He sees her. He sees her in ways no one ever has.

Logan’s not disabled; but he hasn’t spoken in eight years. He hasn’t needed to. Until he meets Kit. 

Logan doesn’t know everything about her. Kit doesn’t know anything about herself, until she has to sacrifice all she ever wanted to save what’s most important to him.

MARI FREEMAN will be reading from DIRTY LITTLE FREAKS, (before it even hits the shelves!) the second in her Valkyrie's Vow series.

Valkyries have just three rules:

1. Claim your charge.

2. Deliver said charge.

3. Make a clean exit.

Such easy rules to follow—and even easier to break.

When Swan dawdles on the job, it leads to some hot ’n’ heavy fun with two sexy Spartans. And there could be a lot more…if a meddling sibling, a mad Valkyrie and a few animated corpses don’t ruin the mood.

And GINA LAMM will read from her latest release THE GEEK GIRL AND THE SCANDALOUS EARL.

The Stakes Have Never Been Higher...

An avid gamer, Jamie Marten loves to escape into online adventure. But when she falls through an antique mirror into a lavish bedchamber—200 years in the past!—she realizes she may have escaped a little too far.

Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington, has just kicked one mistress out of his bed and isn't looking to fill it with another—least of all this sassy, nearly naked woman who claims to be from the future. Yet something about her is undeniably enticing...

Jamie and Micah are worlds apart. He's a peer of the realm. She can barely make rent. He's horse-drawn. She's Wi-Fi. But in the game of love, these two will risk everything to win.
