CLOSED ~ Still the One Book Tour Giveaway (5 Winners)


Ok ladies hold on to your tissue and be sure you have a box close to you! You know me I will cry at a commercial but talk about opening the flood gates, this one when they said is a pull at the heart strings they were not just saying it really it will.

STILL THE ONE is a book that can touch and sadly has hit many family around us. We live right by an airforce and army base and have met so many family and some have lost so much but the love for country and what they do has touched me deeply. In STILL THE ONE we start with Katie Charmaine who's husband is killed in Iraq. Sadly with her dream of her true love and having kids with him left her for good.

As a past love Zack Ferguson returns things start to go in a different direction. Not only has he returned so has the the daughter she had with him that was given up for adoption. Can the past be forgot and move forward? Can the daughter once given away feel the love that she so direly needs especially now that she has return pregnant!

How life can give us so many twist and turns and take us down a path that we may not have know before but it may just be the right path for us.

A little about Robin Wells:
Robin Wells is an accomplished romance author, having written over a dozen titles for Harlequin. She is the author of Baby, Oh Baby (Lovespell, 7/03), which won the National Readers' Choice Award. Robin Wells has won the prestigious National Golden Heart Award from the Romance Writers of America, and her novels have been translated into more than a dozen languages.
Five Fun Facts from Robin Wells:
I always know a lot more about my characters and fictional settings than I have room to put into a book. One thing about the fictional town of Chartreuse, Lousiana that didn’t make it into either Between the Sheets or Still the One: it has a sign at the city limits that reads: “Welcome to Chartreuse, the most colorful town in Louisiana.”

The town of Chartreuse is loosely modeled on a town about thirty minutes from my home called Pontchatoula. Pontchatoula is very eccentric: it has a giant strawberry on the roof of the police station and a caged pool in the middle of town that houses an enormous alligator.

The concept of the Chartreuse Cafe as a local gathering place comes from a cafe in Pontchatoula. When you walk inside, it’s like entering a time warp to the fifties.

I decided to create a fictional town instead of setting my stories in an actual one because I mention local politicians. I didn’t want anyone to think I was referring to actual people.

I love writing about small towns because they have such a rich sense of community. People’s lives and histories are intertwined, which can make for some interesting dynamics. When one person changes, it can be hard for the other people to accept (after all, they remember what you were like in high school!), but then every change has a ripple effect throughout the whole community.

I started thinking about Katie’s story the moment she appeared as a secondary character in Between the Sheets. I wanted her to be married so that she could offer Emma experience-based advice about love, but I wanted her to be able to hang out as a single, unencumbered by a husband. I decided Katie’s husband would be in Iraq. Then I started wondering what her life would be like when he returned - or if he would return. And that’s when the story of Still the One took off.
