Book Spotlight and Contest: Lumberjack in Love by Penny Watson

Penny Watson is one of my favorite people I have had the honor of knowing for a few years because of the internet. She's beyond adorable and I love her blog posts. She makes me smile and always gives me a good laugh, especially when I'm having a bad day. Plus she's the reason I have a new found love for the dachshund aka the wienie dog.


I was beyond thrilled when Penny told me she was going to write a lumberjack story and decided to self publish it. Penny has a big thing for strapping men in beards. I have a big thing for strapping men all around, but I'm more of a scruff type of women instead of a man with a full grown beard (but after watching Joe Mangaiello in action on True Blood and Magic Mike, I have changed my mind).


She wrote a post about why she decided to write her lumberjack romance, which has humbled me because I had no idea my suggestion of writing what you love would help Penny with her story.

Write what you love. Writers and authors should always remember that.

Penny's lumberjack story was released a few days ago titled, Lumberjack in Love. It's about a metropolitan woman from Boston who meets a strapping bearded lumberjack with a pet bulldog named Henry in the boonies of Vermont. Sparks fly between these two and it's great. This is one adorable and sexy novella that shows how wonderful beady lumberjack front porch loving in the great wild can be.

In honor of Lumberjack in Love's release, I'm giving away 2 copies. Since Lumberjack in Love is only available on the Kindle, you must be able to access the book that way. In order for your chance to win, leave a comment here by Monday, 9/17 on why you would like your own Lumberjack in Love. All I ask in return is if you do win a copy, please review it, even if you don't like it because a review, regardless if it's 5 stars or 1 star helps bring notice about the book to the reading public at large.


Synopsis: City slicker Ami Jordan was just dumped by her back-stabbing boyfriend, has no job prospects, and can't find a decent cup of coffee in the entire state of Vermont. The last thing she needs is a sexy, bearded lumberjack complicating her life. Even if he’s smart, talented, and has the hottest ass she’s ever seen.

Tree house builder, environmental champion, and Bulldog owner Marcus Anderson has no patience for flatlanders with an attitude. But when landscape designer Ami Jordan shows up at his log cabin, he suddenly develops a hankering for a high-maintenance city gal. Now his house looks like a jungle, his recycling is in disarray, and his libido's on fire.

He's a lumberjack in love.

I must say that this is the best story! As soon as I saw Penny had it live on Amazon I was on it! I read it and loved it!!! My husband has a wooly beard simply because he doesn't like to shave so I am thinking he needs a new wardrobe of plaid flannel shirts for the Fall! REALLY a great read! I already have this book, so if I should win please pass on to someone else.

I'd really like to win Lumberjack in Love because a five foot nine, 160 lb woman like me would just love to fantasize about being a tiny widdle thing in a gweat big stwong lumberjack's arms! LOL! The book sounds like a lot of fun.

Penny's blog is just hilarious. I can't believe some of those books she reads, and like you, I've also fallen in love with doxies thanks to her. Whenever anyone says lumberjack, I just picture a shirtless guy swinging an axe and splitting those logs. Yum, sexy.
