TO WIN HER TRUST & Giveaway with Mackenzie Crowne

Don’t you love when you pick up a book by a new author and BAMM, you’ve found a new favorite? That’s what happened to me many years ago when I first discovered Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I was immediately hooked and quickly devoured everything she’d written. 

Aint She Sweet, comes to mind. A story about the girl everybody loves to hate coming back to the town she’d sworn to leave behind forever. And Lady Be Good, the tale of a proper English headmistress hell-bent on destroying her reputation, and a disgraced Texas athlete playboy determined to salvage his own. 

But my favorite of her books were part of her Chicago Stars series. Many years later, book 1, It Had To Be You, holds a solid spot in my top three all-time favorite romances. And not just because of the sports element, though I do love my football. 

As in real life, Phillips’ characters are imperfect, but they’re also strong, and have the ability to laugh at themselves when it’s warranted. They say an author should write what they know, and I knew the moment I picked up that first title I loved Phillips’ style. Heartfelt with plenty of steam and a healthy dose of humor, her writing has influenced mine more than any other author I’ve read. 

What about you? Do you have a favorite author, and what is it about their stories that make them so unforgettable?

Can she trust this player with her heart?

                Ever since experiencing a childhood trauma, reclusive artist CC Calhoun has suffered from panic attacks. But when a fateful kiss from handsome wide receiver, Kevin “Tuck” Tucker, is enough to stop one of those episodes cold, she wonders if guarding her heart has been the right choice. Will going on a test date with Tuck open her to trusting someone for the first time in years? Or will she wind up being just another notch in the football player’s bedpost?


Tuck has a reputation for charming women into bed, but after his kiss with CC, he’s left aching for more. When he proposes a second date, his attraction to the sexy blonde looks like the makings of true love—something he’s never quite believed in—until now. But when Tuck discovers CC’s childhood secrets, will the pro athlete be tough enough to stay by her side—or will he betray her hard-earned trust?
