Lucianne Rivers - Sister, Sister (Guest Post and Giveaway!)

I'm an only child. So why did I write about three sisters? Well, Jane, Margo and Allison Caldwell are three extraordinarily different women with a common goal. Bonded by their love for their recently deceased mother, each sibling embarks on a journey across the world to find their long-lost and presumed dead father, Zach, finding love and danger on the way.

Jane is the well-kept, refined, all-American news anchor knocked off her perfectly chiseled high heels by the mysterious Harrison DeNeuve in the Guatemalan jungle. Margo is the potty-mouthed, tough as nails police detective who meets her match in sea captain, Adrian Prince on the treacherous waters near St. Thomas, VI. And Allison, the stay-at-home rancher, melts the heart of jaded ex -navy SEAL, Robert Rivera in the

barren mountains of Afghanistan.

Each sister is motivated by familial devotion and finds love in the wonderful form of a strong, hot, loving man.

Not having had sisters (nor the love of a wonderful, strong, hot loving man) I had to use my vivid imagination while writing the sisterly affection on the pages of HOLD ME, THRILL ME, ENTICE ME.

For my readers out there, I'd like to hear your tales of sibling rivalry and love. The most interesting comment wins a copy of HOLD ME, THRILL ME, ENTICE ME (all three novellas).

Thanks for stopping by.

ENTICE ME by Lucianne Rivers

Heartsick over the untimely death of her mother, Allison Caldwell is blindsided again by the secret revealed in her mom’s will. Her supposedly dead father is alive, and she and her two sisters must find him in order to settle the Caldwell estate.

Robert Rivera, private investigator and former Navy SEAL, alerts Allison to new intel identifying her father as a P.O.W. in Afghanistan. With her sisters out of the country pursuing leads, Allison insists on heading to the war-ravaged country to find him. Robert doesn’t want his na├»ve client to take the risk. He knows what danger lays in that godforsaken land…he’s lived through it. Barely.

But Allison is determined to go, and Robert can’t let her travel alone. Reluctantly appreciative, Allison quickly realizes how much she needs his guidance and protection, and how deeply she longs for his love. Robert struggles to understand her effect on his battle-weary heart.

The path to Allison’s father is blocked by terrorists, traps and treachery—all demons of Robert’s past. Can he survive a second round with the enemy and keep Allison out of harm’s way?

Hi, Kristi! I couldn't resist responding to your post today. There are three of us all a year and a couple of days apart. (Mom said after the third one, she finally figured out what was causing it! ;-) ) My sister is the oldest, I'm in the middle and my brother is the youngest. We all fought as siblings do but it was funny that there was always two against one, the pairing of which changed often. Our father passed away shortly after my brother was born leaving Mom to bring us up. She did a great job but of course we missed having a father. My sister was the prissy one and always trying to pick a fight with me. Mom always told me to keep the peace. Well, one day I had had enough of that keeping the peace crap, and let my sister have it by scratching some skin off her back. Yes, that was mean but she then realized I wouldn't take her "stuff" anymore. As for my brother. Yikes! He was friends with a boy down the street upon whom I had a huge crush. Well, my brother brought him home one day, opened the cabinet door to expose a HUGE box of Kotex and told him that I used them! I wanted to die! This all sounds mean but today we are very close and would protect each other with our very lives. Sibling rivalry is simply a normal part of growing up.

Awesome, awesome idea :)I am an only child too! I laugh and tell people that my mother had more children...but I was the only one to survive. That usually makes people chuckle but boy does it make my mom mad!!

I've wondered what its like to have siblings..but you can't miss what you never had. :)

Honestly, my sibs and I have never had sibling rivalry. Others have compared us and even gone so far as to tell us where we are wanting but we have never done it with each other. As far as sibling love goes, we will pick up and travel at a moments notice to help each other. One Christmas, I went to my sister's house to help her organize because their house was on the market and their son had recently been diagnosed with diabetes (hey, when it rains, it pours). My sister and her husband had to attend the year end party at his office so I stayed home to watch her baby and decorate. I spent most of the night stringing lights on the tree. I should mention the tree was already decorated when the lights blew so I had to work around that little problem.
For my 40th birthday, my sister brought her whole family to town. Super fun! My brother called me at the last minute and told me he was able to adjust his schedule. So, sneaky me, told him to tell everyone he couldn't make it. Then I had my husband lie about having to stop by work on my birthday. We all headed to the park for my party while my husband picked up my brother at the airport. When we got to the park my brother was hiding in the ranger station and jumped out to surprise everyone! Totally amazing!
I am really blessed to have two sibs that are so great!

The covers for these three books are awesome. That alone draws my attention. I have 1 sister that is nine years younger than I. So there wasn't much of a rivalry when we were kids. I didn't like her much when we were kids, because she was the baby, and I had to babysit a lot a miss some Friday and Saturday night dates.
But now we are grown adults each of us married to our sweethearts. She has 2 boys, 5 cats, 2 dogs, 1 turtle and a partridge in a pear tree. (Sorry I couldn't resist that) I have 1 terrific son and 1 elderly 19 yr old cat.
