Blog Tour & Giveaway: Jilted/Promise Harbor series

The wedding’s off but the honeymoon is on…

Devon can do this. She can show up at her ex-boyfriend Josh’s wedding, even though he’s marrying her ex-best-friend. She can show everyone she’s happy with her fabulous life in Boston, her great career, her amazing shoes — and she can show everyone she’s over him.

Truth is, her life isn’t so fabulous. She’s just been downsized out of her job, her Jimmy Choos won’t pay her mortgage, and…she’s still heartbroken that Josh chose family over her. The real reason she’s enduring this wedding is that her next stop is nearby Greenbush Island, her last hope of finding a new job.

Josh knows marrying long-time friend Allie will make everyone happy after the rough time their families have been through, and since the woman he really wanted to marry chose her career and big city life over him—why not?

But the perfect wedding turns into a perfect disaster when Allie leaves him at the altar for another man. He never saw that coming! But hey, Devon’s there, offering to help him look for Allie on Greenbush Island, where he’d planned their honeymoon. Only, all they find there are their old feelings for each other and a temptation to risk their hearts one more time…  

Warning: This book contains a firefighter hot enough to ignite flames, a woman who doesn’t want to get burned again, a honeymoon suite but no honeymoon, and sex not on the beach (sorry).

Jilted/Promise Harbor series

Promise Harbor, Massachusetts

Population 20,121

We promise you'll love us

Here are some fun and interesting facts about the series and book, JILTED.

When Meg Benjamin, Sydney Somers and Erin Nicholas and I started working on the Promise Harbor Wedding series, it was actually Promise Cove — but it was pointed out to us that a number of other romance series are located in a “cove” so we changed it to Harbor. And actually, I’ve grown quite fond of “the harbor” as the locals call it. Picture the weathered gray shingles and white picket fences of a Cape Cod cottage. The Atlantic Ocean with sand dunes and beach grass waving in the breeze, seagulls overhead. Fishing boats in the harbor, a lighthouse…for more visuals, check out my Pinterest board for Jilted.

More about Promise Harbor:

Whether you're in town for business or pleasure, biking or beaches, deep sea fishing or strolling the local shops, the Harbor has everything you need to create unforgettable memories. Renowned for its fresh catch of the day, mouth-watering hickory burgers, cozy bed and breakfasts, historic sites and scenic coastlines, Promise Harbor is the perfect small-town destination for your business retreat, wedding or vacation.

Here are some local attractions that appear in the Promise Harbor Wedding series:

Barney's Chowder House
– Check out our world famous chowders – clam chowder using New England razor clams, seafood chowder and corn and crab chowder. We also have the best burgers in town including the hickory burger served with hand cut fries.

Stone’s Sports Bar – Whether you’re looking for a cold beer after a hard day’s work, a place to socialize with friends on a Friday night or the best seat in the house to watch the game, Stone’s is the perfect place to unwind. Great place for a pre-wedding bachelor or bachelorette party!

Grant's Charters – Located in the Promise Harbor Marina, Captain Doug Grant has owned and operated Grant's Charters for over twenty-five years. His experience and depth of knowledge guarantee a safe, productive and fun trip. We provide all rods, reels, bait and tackle. June is the start of summer fishing season when the Striped Bass, Blue Fish and Fluke move to the shoals of Greenbush Island. June fishing season yields excellent results because of the wide variety of bait available including sand eels, squid, butter fish, scup, and herring. At this time of year there are lots of Bass and Blues and they're super hungry from their northerly migration. June has some of our best Bass and Blue action.

Sunset Bluff – Located at the edge of town, this scenic destination attracts thousands of tourists each summer to the trails and cliffs overlooking the ocean. Also a popular make-out spot for locals.

Promise Harbor Memorial Arena – Home to the Promise Harbor Hawks hockey team. Open to tourists looking for sports memorabilia related to local hockey star, Jackson Knight.

Tompkins Corners – Thirty minutes northwest from Promise Harbor, the town of Tompkins Corners boasts Tompkins Lake State Park and the Hotel Grand.

Hotel Grand – Once the pride of Tompkins Corners, the Hotel Grand has fallen on hard times recently. Owner Alice Dubrovnik is determined to bring the Grand back to its former glory. Luscious breakfast pastry courtesy of the hotel’s new chef, Greta Brewster.

Tompkins Lake – Massachusetts State Park and popular picnic spot for the residents of Tompkins Corners. After dark, a great place for a little romance (just ask Greta and Hank).

Greenbush Island - 
not as well known as the Vineyard or Nantucket, but becoming a fashionable destination for well-to-do tourists. The beaches are pristine and serene, with some protected local plant species. The two small towns on the island are home to quaint shops and galleries, and a number of luxury hotels and inns, recently built to take advantage of the growing tourism. The Oceanside Inn is a particularly lovely destination for family or for that special romantic occasion ― the honeymoon package is delightful!

Ooh...looks like a great book! Cant wait to read it! I love series books especially if i really relate with the characters... i just never want the story to end!

Lisa Borbeck said...

I love being able to see what happens to characters that I have met in previous books/continue the story after the HEA.

BrandiMarie5 said...

I love series books because we get a deeper understanding of the characters and their lives. Sometimes one book just can't tell everything. Plus I am greedy and always want to know more ;)

Jennifer said...

I haven't read this series yet, but certainly going to! Thanks for the giveaway;)

Maria D. said...

I can't wait to read this - I like series books because you really get to know the characters better and usually get a deeper understanding of the events taking place in the characters life. You also get to see all of the different types of relationships involved.

Susana Rivera said...

I haven't read this series but looking forward!!
thanks for the giveaway!!

Pam said...

I love series books because you get to keep learning about the characters and what happens in their lives.

Veronica said...

Hadn't heard of this series, but I did just add Jilted to my TBR list!

Shannon Bereza said...

This series is going to be awesome! I've already added Jilted to my TBR list. I love that the series has four different authors. What I love about series in general is the fact that as a reader I can stay inside the story longer than just being limited to the 200 or 300 pages of one book. I also love that series often don't follow just two specific characters, but each new book in the series sometimes follows a different set of characters but we still get a glimpse at characters from the other books in the series!

amlat said...

Haven't read the series yet, but looks great! Added plus - set in good ol' MA... you can never go wrong :)

June M. said...

I love series because you can get to know the world and characters better. Often in a book, there are secondary characters that you enjoy and want them to get their own HEA. In a series, this is much more likely to happen, plus you often get updates about previous characters after their HEA :)

Karina Limas said...

I love the series because the characters feel real to me. I loved that I couldn't stop reading it! :)

krg said...

I have a love hate relationship with series. I love them because you really get to know the characters over time and they get to be like friends. I hate them cuz I'm impatient to wait for next book! lol :p

Ari T said...

I like book series because you really get to know not only the characters really well, but also sometimes everything else, i.e. setting, history, fundamentals, etc. Series also allow multiple settings, time periods, plot arcs, character development, and pre-planned situations that if the genre is a mystery, can link one book to another.

Madonna said...

I like the character development, and the continuity of seeing the same people again and again.

Jeannette Aguilar said...

I like that all characters are close to each other in one way or another.

Stella Ex Libris said...

In series I love how the books are interconnected either through siblings or friends. I also love how we got to revisit some of the previous couples and see what became of them after we waved them goodbye at the end of their HEA. But in other series where the stories are happening simultaneously I enjoy seeing the different POVs and how the same events are perceived differently and how they affect the life of the different characters. Congrats to all of you on this great new series, so excited to read them, I love wedding romances! :-D
