Winners of Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

save the contemporary logoWe love the contemporary like Damn and Whoa (tm SmartBitch Sarah) so we’ve created a special little online place for them at and we’ve run a kind of monthly campaign highlighting a different book.

This month’s book was Lisa Kleypas’ Smooth Talking Stranger which Jane described as a Snoopy book (Happiness is a warm puppy) and Sarah described as the book as having suds that stays with you. Which, in real person terms means we both loved the book and wanted an effective way of telling others we loved it to.

From now until April 6, 2009, Borders is offering30% off all pre-orders, so if you’re thinking of buying it, you’ve got 30% more (or less) incentive to do so.

If you are a reader, author, or ameoba, you can use the “” site to recommend your favorite contemporary reads too. Take a look. In the meantime, the following folks won a copy of Smooth Talking Stranger. Please send your snailmail to jane at
