Last fall Lois Winston, author of the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery series and creator of all of us here at Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers, was invited to take part in the publication of a boxed set of romances. RomanceSuper Bundle, ten romance and romantic suspense novels by ten authors, debuted the beginning of October. It was so well received—selling over 100,000 copies within the first six months—that the ten authors decided to get together again for another boxed set. Only this time they invited an additional author to join them, creating Romance Super Bundle II, Second Chances, featuring eleven NY Times, USA Today, Amazon, and B&N bestselling authors.

In Romance SuperBundle II, Second Chances you’ll find eleven romances featuring a lonesome cowboy, a spurned bride-to-be, a heartbroken widower, an unexpected pregnancy, and more—along with a tasty smattering of intrigue, murder and suspense. Almost half a million words and two thousand pages of strong heroes and daring heroines who'll do anything for a second chance at love, all for the incredibly low price of .99 cents! If you love reading romance, Romance Super Bundle II, Second Chances will give you hours and hours of pleasure.
