Hello, and welcome to the Winter Warm Up Blog Hop! Dec. 19 - 22.

My name is Joanne C. Berroa and I write historical and contemporary romances. I'm a stickler for a happy ending. I wish real life could have happy endings, but alas, it wouldn't be real life if happy endings were a certainty. That's why people read--to escape real life knowing that no matter what the hero and heroine go through in their adventures, they will wind up together and happy. My wish for each of you in this holiday season is for a "happily ever after" ending in each of your lives. May all your wishes come true!

So why not curl up by the fireplace with your Kindle or Nook, or even your laptop, and read a good book. May I suggest my latest release from Rebel Ink Press entitled "Rapture on the High Seas?" It's a modern day pirate adventure. It's a novella, so it's a quick read. And it's guaranteed to give you a happy ending!!!

Please read the following information for Rapture on the High Seas. It's available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as All Romance ebooks for $2.99. I'm also giving away a free ebook copy to one lucky winner who leaves a comment here on my blog site. Remember to leave your email address as well so I can notify you if you're the winner. In addition to my giveaway, you can enter on Rafflecopter for a grand prize - a $75 Amazon Gift Card.



Laurel Vanderman Delacroix is the daughter of billionaire Victor Vanderman, owner and CEO of multi-national World One Bank. Although Laurel has a high level job within the family business, her life is unfulfilled, and she takes an extended African vacation with friends aboard her multi-million dollar yacht. She never expects to be hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean, some three hundred miles out in International waters off the coast of Tanzania. She has no way of knowing that this is no random act of piracy. Someone who wants to bankrupt her father set the hijacking in motion, and the perpetrator doesn’t care what happens to Laurel and her friends in the process.
The Somali pirate leader who captures Laurel and her friends aboard Bubbles is extremely competent and dangerous, which makes him a force to be reckoned with. He’s also an astute businessman with millions in his Swiss bank account. Will this Somali pirate carry out his mission and put Laurel’s and her friends’ lives on the line, or does he subscribe to another agenda? Will he capture Laurel’s heart along with his ransom demands, or completely destroy it?

Rapture on the High Seas is a contemporary story of intrigue and betrayal. Above all else, it’s a sensual tale of love that’ll leave you feeling warm all over and believing that nothing is ever as it seems.


His scowl made her heart hammer and he crossed the distance between them with panther-like grace. Before she could blink, a six inch blade materialized in his right hand and with a flash, he yanked the sheet away from her and slashed the scanty material at the center of her bra, severing it. Rendered with precision and skill, she felt no pain and the knife drew no blood, but the bra fell open, exposing Laurel’s upturned breasts to his lascivious gaze. She gasped. The haughty pirate touched the tip of the knife to his lips and licked it as though it had just sliced through a savory steak. His face harbored a smug smile. “That could’ve been your throat, Mrs. Delacroix. Luckily I was aiming a bit lower.”
