Thankful Author - Mona Risk

I have a lot of things to be grateful for in 2015. Several of my books were parts of boxes that remained on the USA Today bestsellers list for several weeks, actually for eight weeks,—Her Christmas Cruise, Valentine Babies, Wedding Surprise, Husband for a Week, and Christmas Papa. And one book, Husband for a Week, that was part of a box that reached the New York Times bestseller list.
I am also grateful for the amazing number of eager readers and wonderful fans I met and befriended through my books and during Facebook events. I can’t thank them enough for reading and reviewing my books.
Finally, I am grateful for the amazing authors who became a second family while we cooperated on the publication and promotion of various boxes. Their friendship and support have proven invaluable.

And most of all I thank God for good health.

Reviews for Christmas Papa on Amazon:

"This is a fast paced book, which I love, and is a very endearing love story. Ultimately, Monica overcomes so much of her past and I love the way Michael connects with Monica’s twin boys. Talk about pulling at your heartstrings!!!" ~Circumspect

"This was a very sweet story. Monica was such a wonderful mom and tried really hard to keep control of her life and trying to not set herself up for heartache. I really liked how the story played out. It certainly wasn't a whirlwind romance. The timeline was very believable." Amazon Customer

Reviews for Husband for a Week on Amazon:

"This was a really fun story that went by way too fast! I had a hard time putting it down and read it in just a few short hours. I loved the chemistry between Isabella and Jonathan and I LOVED the idea of the fake marriage. This book is packed full of entertainment and adventure and doesn’t disappoint in the romance department either! If you’re looking for a fun, engaging story that will be sure to entertain you for hours, then this is the book for you!"~ Nic S.

Her Christmas Cruise: The perfect fiancé is a cheater and the fabulous Christmas wedding is off. But the would-be honeymoon cruise may fulfill the dreams of Julia and her unexpected companion.

NEW Release Two Loves For Christmas: Her German shepherd is her only friend until a senator’s son refuses to have her for fake fiancĂ©e and teams with her dog to protect her.

Reviews Two Loves For Christmas on Amazon:

"Parents plotting, complications due to Emma's sick mother, unsavory characters making threats and stealing, and Josh/Emma's strong feelings towards each other provide an action packed and awesome romantic story." ~ Jo Anne Vincenti

"This book was not at all what I expected, but so much more. I love it! I wasn't expecting the little bit of mystery. It was fun and cute and I was cheering on the two loves the whole time. Not at all how imagined it to go. I highly recommend this little slice of Christmas cheer!!"~ Nikki
