Since February marks Valentine's Day, here at Romance Author Buzz I will be celebrating it and giving away a copy of the re-issue of Susan Mallery's The Sparkling One.  It's the first book her her Marcelli Family series and such an entertaining read.

Book Description:

For the Marcelli sisters of California wine country, the season is ripe for romance!

A party planner extraordinaire, Katie Marcelli loves her big, boisterous family -- even when their chronic matchmaking drives her crazy! In the Marcelli household, fine wine and good food are as celebrated as true love, so when her eighteen-year-old sister announces her engagement, Katie promises her the perfect wedding. There's only one hitch: the father of the groom, Zach Stryker, who is adamantly opposed to his son marrying so young. Now, despite her instant attraction to the handsome, arrogant attorney, Katie must approach with caution: Zach, who hired Katie for a major fund-raiser, holds the fate of her business in his hands -- and how can she trust a man who is willing to break her sister's heart? It will take a passionate battle of wills to determine if wedding bells will ring for a Marcelli bride, and to unlock the deepest desires -- for family, love, and home -- inside a strong-willed man's heart.

Meet the Marcelli family in a wonderful series that's warm, witty, and stunningly sensual. Look for The Sassy One, The Seductive One, and The Marcelli Bride, all available from Pocket Star Books!

Thanks, Marilyn! You're always so supportive. I just adore the new covers of the Marcelli books. I think THE SPARKLING ONE might be my favorite. There's something so lush about the color tones. I'm a happy camper! (Except for the "camper" part.)

I'd love to win this book! Please count me in.

Valentine's day sounds like such a lot of fun apart fromt the effort people put into it to do something very special.

well i have never really had any fantastic valentines day. but one year my daddy gave all us girls chocolate and very sweet handwritten notes. my daddy gives us notes at our birthdays and christmas and valentines day and they're always so sweet and heart-felt. i think the best kind of love note is like that: from someone who loves you more than anyone else in the world. that's my daddy!
