To celebrate November and Thanksgiving, Forever Romance is hosting this generous contest. Three lucky winners will receive these four books:

It Happened One Night

Sometimes love finds you when you least expect it. Lana Biel has always wanted to shake the dust of Vermont off her feet and see the world, one exotic country after another. But when a lighthearted spring fling changes her life forever, she turns to the one man whose strong shoulders can lighten any burden: her best friend, Eli Ward. Eli has always been there for Lana--after all, that's what best friends do. But Lana isn't the only one hiding something. Eli is keeping secrets of his own that threaten their relationship.
 Montana Legacy 
Montana Legacy  by R.C. Ryan

They're the McCords...three rugged, sexy cowboy cousins who'll inherit the family range--if they seek the treasure hidden on it. But even more precious are the women who can tame their wild hearts...

She was the one person who shook Jesse McCord's quiet determination. She was the only one he ever let in, body and soul. Then suddenly Amy Parrish was gone and the oldest McCord cousin devoted his life to the family ranch. Now Amy is back, offering help to Jesse find the McCord gold. Yet Jesse's not about to give her a second chance, and he hopes his pride will protect him from her irresistible charms. But under the wide prairie skies a dangerous, unseen enemy is fast closing in, threatening Amy and Jesse's very lives and the promise of their ...MONTANA LEGACY

Tall Tales and Wedding Veils
Tall Tales and Wedding Veils by Jane Graves

Accountant Heather Montgomery is a planner. So never in her wildest dreams did she think she'd run into sexy charmer Tony McCaffrey in Vegas, play lady luck, and celebrate his jackpot with a champagne-soaked night. And she certainly never expected to wake up the next morning married! How could this good girl pick a man whose fridge is empty and whose apartment is a disaster zone, yet still drives her so crazy with lust she can't see straight?

Quickly hitched and happily ditched, Tony can't wait to get back to his playboy ways. But when Heather's family is thrilled that their no-nonsense daughter is finally in love, he proposes a plan: stay married for a month to repay his good luck charm, even though she sterilizes his toothbrush and forbids anything between the sheets. But Heather is more than he bargained for--a sharp-witted, passionate woman who just might turn his near miss into wedded bliss!

Talk of the Town
Talk of the Town  by Sherrill Bodine


Darlings, what a to-do at the Daily Mail today! After fifteen years as Chicago's gossip guru, Rebecca Covington has been demoted from divulger of secrets for the city's elite to headlining recipes in the Home and Food section. Apparently, a touchy senator is threatening legal action for Rebecca's latest extramarital scoop. But Windy City rumor has it that new CEO and dreamy Pierce Brosnan look-alike David Sumner downgraded Rebecca in favor of fresher, younger blood on the social beat.

Industry insiders expect Rebecca to fight her denouement, and inquiring minds have already seen the feisty maven trading quips and searing glances wtih her arresting new boss. Rebecca swears she'll reclaim her shining star status, but can the dishy diva even cook? And how can she ignore David's arousing effect on her sensibilities?

  10. I try to stick to the 3 bite rule. One to see if I like it, one to be sure and the last one is always enough to have enjoyed it. Additionally, I try to be active every day.

  11. My tip for staying fit for the holidays is to eat before a party. If you need to nibble, eat the fresh veggies (no dip) in between the goodies. You'll eat less goodies.

  12. Over the holidays I find staying away from salty snacks and having water as my drink mixer helps to keep the calories off. Ten minutes of jumping jacks a day sure helps too.

  13. During the holidays well, I don't really try to stay fit, I guess :P But one thing I do is not eat late at night, make sure I stay up at least a couple hours after eating so I have time to digest better.

  14. i dont crave sweetsbut i love "real" food. i try to exercise as much as possible, but I always take the stairs instead of the elevator or park farther and walk.
