From the Zumaya Embraces Imprint – That’s Amore

That’s Amores by Linda Andrews

Love flies with the speed of an arrow 

 

How’s a girl supposed to stay single with the entire town wants her married?

Alessa Lombard has a plan to avoid the marriage trap. It’s not that she’s opposed to marriage—wedded bliss is fine…for other people. All she needs is the help of the town’s newest bachelor to help pull off a fake romance, and the family curse won’t have a chance to ruin her life.

Determined to fall in love, Sloan Dugan immigrates to the magical town of Amores. Surely, in a town devoted to love, he’ll find a woman who doesn’t use trickery and deceit.

But Cupid has other plans. Alessa and Sloan will find themselves playing the game of love whether they want to or not. Will winner take all? Or lose everything?

The 2012 Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to the 2012 Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt!

We had so much fun last year with a smaller version in conjunction with a chat we decided to expand it, gather some terrific prizes and give lots of people a chance to win them by running the event through the month of September.

         A number of our authors have donated those prizes, and they are all related somehow to their books. How they’re related, we aren’t going to tell, beyond maybe a hint or two. We don’t want to give away all our secrets.

         The way the contest works is that a group of Zumaya authors are hosting a collection of links on their blogs. There will be a question about themselves or their books, and a link to where you can find the answer. Visit all the blogs, collect the answers to all the questions, then go here, and complete the contest form.

         Now, a contest wouldn’t be any fun if it was too easy, so we’ve added some book and author-related trivia questions just to challenge you. Take your time—the Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt will run through the entire month of September. You can see photos of some of the great prizes we’re giving away over at  Pinterest in the “What Do These Have In Common” album or at the Zumaya page at Facebook. Who knows— there might even be a few books and ebooks tossed into the mix before we’re done. We’ll definitely be giving away at least one ereader, but we’re waiting for all the new models to come out before we pick those.

         There will also be daily and weekly trivia contests, so keep an eye on Twitter and the Zumaya page on Facebook, or re-visit our company blog Zumaya Tales.  If you haven’t liked the Zumaya page on Facebook, now would be a good time. We’ll also have a chat at Coffee Time Romance and more on 4 September to launch, and a couple of hangouts on Google+ over the next four weeks.

         There is, of course, no purchase required, and your private information will remain between you and Zumaya. Unless we’re authorized to do otherwise, it will all be deleted when the contest ends. While we’d love it if you sampled our wares, our goal with this contest is to get to know as many people as we can, and to let them get to know us. So, welcome and have fun!

Here’s a peek at some of the prizes for the Zumaya Publications Scavenger Hunt:

 

If you’ve read my novels, you’ll know which one I threw into the pot. Hee hee!

Now to get you started…

At the bottom of this post is a list of Zumaya authors. On each of their websites you’ll find the answer to a question. Collect the answers to those questions, then go to the ZP Survey Monkey page and fill in the answers.

Zumaya Thresholds Imprint – Reality Ali

Reality Ali by Christine Marciniak

The only thing real about reality TV is the camera

Fourteen-year-old Ali Caldwell’s father keeps her privacy so secure none of the kids at boarding school believe she has a movie star for a mom.

Suddenly, she’s the new Hollywood buzz, and her mom wants Ali on her reality show.

Now Ali’s in the middle of a media firestorm. The paparazzi have tracked her down, interview requests are coming from all over, and the hottest star in Hollywood asks her to the school dance. To top it all off, some stranger is following her around and sending flowers. It’s really starting to creep her out. But is he really a dangerous stalker, or just another cog in her mother’s publicity machine?

Zumaya Boundless Imprint – Dante’s Circle

Dante’s Circle by Dorien Grey

 

Music hath charms, but not the musician

An Elliott Smith and John Mystery

Dante Benevetti is the darling of the music world…and why not? He’s handsome, talented—and arrogant as only a man convinced of his own brilliance can be. As far as he’s concerned, the rest of the world exists for his benefit.

So, when he hears Dante is dead, a victim of murder, Elliott isn’t really surprised. Nor is he surprised when Dante comes for a post-mortem visit, demanding Elliott find out who killed him. Was it the well-known lyricist who was the only one in the house at the time? The talented young musician whose work Dante plagiarized? Or some unknown the great pianist had mortally offended?

Zumaya Threshold Imprint – The Sword Of Danu

The Sword of Danu by Christine Norris

 

Just when everything was under control…

Megan has embraced her role as the Librarian, protector of the Library of Athena. She’s spent her entire summer teaching herself magic (al though it doesn’t always work out the way she wants) and studying the Library’s secrets. The Order of Ares, an organization bent on stealing all of the Library’s artifacts, are always at the back of her mind, though they’ve been quiet for awhile.

Then she is forced into yet another enchanted story. Or rather, the story comes to her, somehow ripped from the pages of the book and brought to life. She and her friends must fight their way through an imaginary Ireland, where danger lies around every turn, and find the mythical Sword of Danu.

It’s a race against time—because the magic is spreading. The manor is being overrun, and Megan, Rachel, Claire and Harriet must fight through what was supposed to be an imaginary world to find the sword and return things to normal.

Zumaya Enigma Imprint – Eve Missing

Eve Missing by Ralph Pezzullo

Where Is Eve?

Now in a brand-new edition

Tony Annicelli (aka Smokey) retired from the NYPD after he took four bullets in his side trying to settle a domestic dispute. One of his first cases as a PI involved a troubled runaway who has since become an internationally known supermodel—and Smokey’s friend. When she asks him to look for a missing model named Angela Bowman, he’s ready to help.

Known as Eve, Angela was a teenage hooker when she was rescued by sophisticated designer Danielle Giroux. Smokey is smitten the first time he meets Danielle, and he’s determined to find out what happened to her protege. Then he learns Danielle attacked Eve the night before she disappeared, apparently in a murderous rage. What else, he wonders, did she not tell him?

Before he can confront her, Danielle vanishes, too, and the path to tracking her down has death lurking at every mile marker.

Zumaya Enigma Imprint – Blood of My Blood

Blood of My Blood by Ralph Pezzullo

 

Smokey Annicelli promised Evan Bravere as his best friend lay dying he’d look after Evan’s son Ricky. It wasn’t a hardship—he was Ricky’s godfather.

But years passed, and life happened, and he lost track of Ricky. Then one morning, he’s called to the scene of a brutal murder. The victim is his godson.

Who murdered the charismatic young rock star, and who had he gone to 247 W. 29th Street to see? As Smokey throws himself headlong into the case, it brings back memories of a terrible night in Bronx River Park he’s spent the last thirty years trying to forget. With vicious thugs on his tail, he has to dig deeper than he ever thought he could to solve a mystery that, in many ways, explains his own life.
