Wow! The release of SHE’S GOT GAME is right around the corner. I can’t believe it’s finally here. To celebrate, I’m making a special contest for people who purchase the book before August 13, 2019.
Preorder SHE’S GOT GAME for your chance to win Settlers of Catan: Chocolate Edition. In SHE’S GOT GAME, Gwen meets Cody at a tournament where they’re playing Explorers of Islay, a game inspired by Settlers of Catan. It’s one of Gwen’s favorite games, and I know that you and your friends will love it, too.
Chocolate isn’t just something you can eat. With 32 bars made from the finest Belgian chocolate, you can also play Catan.
“CATAN – Chocolate Edition” is an abridged version of the classic board game “CATAN.” You harvest the resources wool, brick, lumber, grain, and ore, all of which you can trade with your opponents. You use these resources to build roads, settlements, and knights. Nothing new so far. But here comes the special feature! The game pieces are 32 chocolate bars made from the finest Belgian chocolate. The game rules are also simplified. To determine the resources for all players, a spinner is used instead of the dice. To build something, you pay the familiar resource combinations; however, you place the chocolate bars in front of yourself. The larger your empire, the more victory points you have. The first player to reach 5 victory points wins. It pays to settle skillfully because at the end of the game each player may eat their display.

Whether you’re on the train, in the ski lodge or picnicking in the woods: This compact edition lets you take CATAN everywhere! The space-saving box unfolds to reveal the variable board. Roads, settlements and cities are safe in their locking drawers. Cards are held securely in holder trays. Even the dice, thanks to the practical hex-shaped shaker can’t get dropped and lost. CATAN compact is handy, fits easily into your luggage and contains all of the components and fun of the “big” CATAN.
WINNER TAKES ALL
Travel blogger Gwen Williams is about to live the dream—competing in the annual American Board Game Championship. She’s up against some stiff competition, namely legendary gamer and four-time champ Cody McKay. The seriously buff hottie and shameless flirt is going all-out to seduce her. That’s when Gwen lays her cards on the table: She never, ever mixes gaming with romance . . . until resisting Cody becomes a losing proposition.
As Gwen gives in to temptation, everything’s in play for a major heartache. With the rounds heating up and players eliminated, she knows she’s gambling a lot more than a seat at the final table in Vegas. But Cody’s kisses promise more than a fleeting romance. If she plays her cards right, Gwen just might walk off with the championship and the man of her dreams.
To enter, simply reply to this email with a screenshot showing proof of your preorder. Either digital or paperback is fine.
The giveaway will be open through August 11, 2019. One winner will be announced in my newsletter on August 13, after the book is released.
“Charming, funny, and full of surprises, She’s Got Game gave me all the feels, following Gwen on a romantic journey as she learns to let down her guard and play her hand at the game of love.” – Kristin Rockaway, author of How to Hack a Heartbreak.
Laura Heffernan once broke up with her now-husband during a board game after realizing that he was ahead 96-3. She hasn’t played that particular game since. Her best friend still talks about the Great Uno Card Throwing Incident of 2003. Yet, somehow, Laura insists that she is incredibly gracious whether winning or losing. She lives in the northeast with her husband, new baby, and two furry little beasts.
