  2. Congratulations, Marilyn! ~~~dointhehappydance~~~
    Wonderful series! I have read part of them. Summer is the perfect time to bump them up the list! Thank you for the giveaway

  3. WhooHoo! Throwing confetti! Congratulations! I am so far behind on this series! I know they are all standalones but I want to read them in order. It will happen!!!! This one sounds very intriguing! My dad was 6 years younger than my mother! Thank you for the excerpt! Loved it!

    • Carole,
      YAY!!!!!!! Thrilled to hear that you loved the excerpt — thank you!!! I truly hope you’ll enjoy the series. And I love knowing that your dad was younger than your mom. One of my good friends is very happily married to a man 9 years her junior, but he had to work really hard to convince her to give their relationship a shot 😀 .

  4. Yay!! SO excited. You well know how much I love this series so this makes my little heart verrrry happy. And it being a twofer is the cherry on top. 😉 Congrats Marilyn!

  5. I enjoyed the excerpt and must add these to my TBR pile. Thanks for the chance to win a copy! Congratulations on the new stories.

  6. Hi Marilyn!

    I really enjoyed the excerpt here and the two on your website. I’m not usually that interested in contemporary stories, but your series may be an exception (as was Melanie’s Sway).

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the give-away–thank you for this opportunity to win one of your books!!

    Thanks for the excerpts, too!! 😀

    Susanne 🙂

    • Susanne, thanks for taking the time to read all the excerpts!! I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed them — makes my day! 😀 And you’re most welcome for the giveaway opportunity, too! xox

  7. Congratulations on finishing the series. It’s definitely gone onto my wish list so I remember to get them.

  8. As you know I have read and posted reviews on several in this series and I will at some time read the “rest of the stories”. It is only a matter of time. I have enjoyed each one and look forward to more of the same type of pleasure. Thank you for sharing here and for a chance to win.

    • Sheila, *every single one* of your reviews for my stories (whether for this series or for one of my other books) has been a day brightener to read!! xoxoxo THANK YOU for being so kind and for always taking the time to write such thoughtful reviews and comments. 😉 I appreciate you so much!!

  9. Wonderful! So exciting! Congrats Marilyn this excerpt is fab. I’m going to preorder right away! Cannot wait to read the next novel in this entertaining series.

  10. I am so glad to hear that your new book will be releasing soon, Marilyn. Persuasion is one of my favourite novels so I am happy that Coming Home is based on that. Btw, love the excerpt and the cover. And pink is my favourite colour!

    • Lúthien, thank you — as always! — for your sweet comments! I’m thrilled you enjoyed the excerpt and that you liked the cover 😀 . As for pink, it’s my fave color, too!! xox

  11. Random drawing just completed!!
    Congrats to Mikaela Broadfoot & Becky C on winning their choice of either TAKE A CHANCE ON ME or ONE NIGHT LOVE AFFAIR in mobi, epub or pdf!
    Please let me know here or via email (marilynbrant AT gmail DOT com) which ebook you’d like and your preferred format — as well as the best email address to send it to you 😉 .
    And thank you to EVERYONE who took the time to comment. I appreciate you all so much!! xoxo

  12. Congratulations to the winners. I just finished book #5 in the series and will be posting my review tomorrow (actually later today) and will definitely read these two short stories…I think I already have them on my kindle. Always love your hot romances, Marilyn. The last one (Shar & Declan) had me thinking someone might just be influenced by 50 Shades…just a wee bit?

    • Sheila,
      I *loved* your review!!!
      Thank you so much for reading One Night Love Affair, and LOL about your 50 Shades comment! I’d be willing to bet that Shar and Declan would be especially pleased to hear that 😀 . It was great fun to write a steamier romance for them, and I felt it fit their personalities.
      I remember your having said that you were waiting for that true happily ever after for certain Mirabelle Harbor characters… I hope that in the final two stories releasing in September (the COMING HOME duet) that you’ll get that “ahhh” moment. XOXO

      • Marilyn, I did read this before but now in trying to clean out my mail box just thought I would say I am looking forward to that. I have heart surgery on Tuesday so plan to listen to a few audible books. Good luck with your writing. Sheila
