Set 1 of Covers for the Berkley Giveaway Winter 2010

NO PLACE TO RUN, Maya Banks
NO PLACE TO RUN is the 2nd book in Maya’s terrific KGI series, which got off to an outstanding start with the highly powerful and emotional THE DARKEST HOUR. This time, it’s Sam Kelly’s turn in the spotlight, as a woman who disappeared from his life after a brief, unforgettable affair returns with a vengeance–and with a promise of a future together. If they can survive the danger ahead first, of course. Maya has quickly become a must-read favorite of many readers, and NO PLACE TO RUN is truly romantic suspense at it’s finest.

REAL VAMPIRES HAVE MORE TO LOVE, Gerry Bartlett
Glory St. Clair, the lovable big-boned vampire, is back, and her love life is as exciting as ever. Now, it’s her erstwhile bodyguard Rafael who has moved back into her life–and her apartment too. There’s plenty of love, laughter and sexual tension in this terrific book, guaranteed to heat up your holiday!

YOU DROPPED A BLONDE ON ME, Dakota Cassidy
National bestselling author Dakota Cassidy has wowed readers with her fun, irreverent humor and sexy romance for years. Now Dakota returns with an all new novel of contemporary romance, YOU DROPPED A BLONDE ON ME. You won't want to miss the story of Maxine Cambridge, ex-trophy wife extraordinaire who is ready to throw down some payback on her ex-life and battle for what's hers, and she’s even more determined to do it standing on her own.

Set 2 of Covers for the Berkley Giveaway Winter 2010

BLOOD CHALLENGE, Eileen Wilks
Eileen Wilks returns with the latest book in her Lupi series, and not only do Lily and Rule return, but Benedict, Rule’s enigmatic and sexy older brother, takes center stage with his own romance–and a new mate. I’ve been asking Eileen for Benedict’s story for years now, so I’m especially excited about BLOOD CHALLENGE, and I know there are a lot of readers out there who’ve been waiting for Benedict’s story too.

CHASING THE SUN, Kaki Warner
This is the enthralling conclusion to the blazingly romantic “Blood Rose” western historical romance trilogy that has been praised by the Chicago Tribune as “emotionally compelling…[and] flawlessly written.”

DARLING STRUMPET, Gillian Bagwell
For historical fiction readers out there, don’t miss DARLING STRUMPET, which details the story of Nell Gwynn, probably the most famous courtesan of the Restoration period in England and perhaps the most beloved mistress of King Charles II. This story details her beginnings in the London slums to her rise in the world of the theater where she catches the eye of the king.

February

Set 3 of Covers for the Berkley Giveaway Winter 2010

ARCHANGEL’S CONSORT, Nalini Singh
This is the highly anticipated third book in the Guild Hunter series, as Archangel Raphael and Guild Hunter Elena Deveraux return to New York City, and Elena’s new status as an angel and Raphael’s consort puts them in the unrelenting public eye. But they have a lot more than public opinion to worry about, as an Ancient is awakening–an Ancient who is Raphael’s mother. This book is another major step forward in the utterly compelling relationship between Elena and Raphael, and fans won’t be disappointed!

NIGHTSHADE, Michelle Rowen
NIGHTSHADE is the first in a new urban fantasy romance series that is as riveting and page-turning as it gets. Jillian Conrad is put in the ultimate wrong place/wrong time situation when she’s injected with a serum that makes her a living, breathing weapon against vampires, but the poison also makes her blood nearly irresistible to vampire senses. Now sought after by both humans and vampires, her only protection is Declan Reyes, a half-vampire who can barely control his own urges around her. The sexual tension between Declan and Jillian just sizzles. It’s edgy, dark and compulsively readable–perfect for fans of both urban fantasy and paranormal romance.

ANIMAL MAGNETISM, Jill Shalvis
Jill Shalvis consistently writes wonderful contemporary romances, and ANIMAL MAGNETISM is another winner. It features all the sparkle, humor and sensuality that Jill is known for, combined with a menagerie of adorable animals. Lilah, the heroine, owns the town’s only kennel, and is distracted by several animals when she rear-ends the hero’s truck. Sparks fly between the two, and you won’t want to miss the resulting fireworks.

    As goofy as it sounds, the gift I’m happiest about giving is a huge pack of word search books to my mom. She’s a total freak for them, so I bought her two dozen of them plus a lap desk. The book I’d most like to receive is You Dropped a Blonde on Me by Dakota Cassidy, just because it’s not one I’d have been likely to buy for myself and it looks wonderful.

    As a joke, I bought my sister a peeler because every time I go to her house I have to use a knife to peel things. So I guess the gift is really for me. Wow. I suck. I’d better get her some chocolate, maybe chocolate I dislike, just to even things up.

    I want No Place to Run and Archangel’s Consort.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    the gift I am most excited to give this Christmas will go to hubby but he won’t get it until December 30th……he is a huge college football fan and his favorite team happens to be playing their Bowl Game about an hour south of us and I scored tickets! He’s going to be a very happy man! :)

    Such awesome books and it is hard to chose but the book I’d most like to have is Perfect Play by Jaci Burton!

    I managed to snag an awesome gift for my best friend, a prop from her favorite SciFi show. And in best friend fashion I’ve been teasing her about having the best Christmas gift ever for the past two months. :) I’m really excited to give it and at this point she’s really looking forward to receiving it.

    I’d love to get a copy of Archangel’s Consort which I would devour and promptly pass on to said best friend who introduced me to the series.

    The gift I’m most excited to give this year is actually two gifts: Movie Gift Certificates to my kids, for “dates” with Mommy. Individual time, with no brother/sister tagging along, and whatever lunch/other special treat they want.

    The book I’d like is “Then He Kissed Me,” by Christie Ridgeway

  7. Jean
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 14:18:00

    I am most excited about a family gift I’ve got for my brother’s family. I’ve collected and made a package of 6 fun games – like Quiddler and Bonkers — that are great for kids but which can be played by adults too.

    I think the book I’d like to have is “Animal Magnetism” — it just sounds like fun.

  8. KathyB
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 14:25:13

    We’re long-time Houston Oiler fans and I recently came across some memorabilia which
    Son just might enjoy. I recently found a
    chocolate & wine beverage which I gave a niece for her b-day. I decided I wanted to get some for me, the holidays would be a good time, don’t you think?

    I would like to have No Place To Run, I’m
    currently looking for Book 1 of the series!

    I just got into preserving fruits and vegetables this year so I’m looking forward to giving my homemade cranberry sauce to family and friends.
    I’m really looking forward to so many books but I think most especially Master of Smoke by Angela Knight.

    Dec 13, 2010 @ 14:54:25

    I’m most excited to give my mom the personalized calendar i made for her. It’s got pictures from when my sister and I were kids and a few more recent ones too…pretty sure she will love it.
    It’s hard to pick just one out of those! My first choice would have to be Animal Magnetism by Jill Shalvis =)

  17. Elise S.
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 14:54:48

    My boyfriend really enjoys tea, especially in the winter, so I bought him a nice teapot and some loose tea to go with all the video games he asked for. I think he’ll be really surprised.

    That’s a really sexy list of books to choose from but if I had to pick one it would be Archangel’s Consort.

  18. Shannon
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 14:55:20

    I bought a book with pictures of zoo babies for my sister. She’s such a sucker for those kinds of things. =)

    I would like to read Darling Strumpet.

    Dec 13, 2010 @ 14:55:46

    The gift I’m most excited about giving is to my fiance. I’m working on a “struggling college student” budget but I’ve been saving since earlier this year to get him the gift that he’s been subtly longing for but has felt too guilty to buy for himself.

    The book I’d most like to receive out of the titles given is “The Perfect Play” or “Nightshade.” I know, I know. That’s more than one title but there are just so many interesting books coming out!

    Dec 13, 2010 @ 14:58:25

    My holiday is over but my best gift given was an ipod to my daughter who can’t stop thanking me! And my best received was a camera from my hubby.

    I’d love No Place to Run since I have the first book in the series. Or the Perfect Play. Thanks!

  21. Christie
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:09:13

    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:12:47

    I want ARCHANGEL'S CONSORT…real bad.

  24. Rhianna
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:15:09

    I bought the book Ten Little Zombies for my husband and while it’s certainly not the gift I know he’ll love most… I thought it said everything I would want to say to my sweety.

    And from the list above Captive by Christina Phillips would be my first choice but Blood of the Rose by Kate Pearce is a tempting second. Thanks DA & Berkley for hosting such an awesome giveaway!

  25. Emmeline
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:16:48

    I’m excited about all of the giftS we’ve got to give (our kids are all under 8, so Christmas = manic, unbridled excitement), but I can’t wait to see what my Dad thinks of the rare Belgian-origin chickens I’ve got for him! He’s one of those people it’s very hard to buy for. :)

    I’d love Michelle Rowen’s NIGHTSHADE. Many thanks.

    As a lifelong San Francisco Giants fans, I’ve ridden the “Giants fan” roller coaster of emotion my entire life. The day after they finally won their first World Series (since coming to SF in the 50′s) this year, I ordered my dad and brother fresh copies of every San Francisco Chronicle Giants special edition paper printed this year as they wound their way to the Series, along with special edition shirts. They’re going to freak!

    I’d love to win Nalini Singh’s Archangel’s Consort, because I received the first two books as a Christmas gift this weekend, and am so excited to start the series!

  35. Alli
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:29:37

    The gift I am most excited about giving is one I’ve created with my children, aged 4 and 3. We’ve made a couple of canvasses and the kids have painted them and we will give them to their dad for his new office. We are all excited about it!

    I would LOVE a copy of Christina Phillips’s CAPTIVE if possible. Happy holidays to all!

    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:31:30

    Every year at this time the gift I love giving this most are my Christmas Cookies. I make 4-6 kinds of cookies every year from my Grandmother and Mother’s recipe box that was handed down to me. We even have a secret family recipe cookie that is the one I love giving the most because it surprises people.

    There is something so wonderful about baking treats for others that makes my holidays that much more memorable.

    I’d love to win a copy of ANIMAL MAGNETISM by Jill Shalvis.

    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:35:21

    I think the gift I was most excited to give was the baked goods I sent off to a few people this morning. However, I still haven’t decided on all of the gifts I’m giving this year yet, so that may change. I’m going to have to go with Jaci’s The Perfect Play for that cover alone. (Nalini Singh’s Archangel’s Consort is a close runner up ).

  42. Stacie
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 15:37:17

    Unemployment has taken a major bite out of the gift giving budget this year, but I’m excited about my plan to make my family the treats they love, but hate to bake for themselves. I’ve collected a list of people’s favorites and I’ll start baking next week.

    I am excited to give my sister the MAC make-up kit she’s been pining over. I can’t wait to see the look on her face! As a rule we never give presents in our family, but this year is different. I would love ARCHANGEL'S CONSORT by Nalini Singh!!! She’s the best. :D

    Hmmm gift I’m most excited to give this year? I keep playing around with the idea of whether or not I’m done Christmas shopping… but I guess it’d be the fancy electric kettle my dad is getting. Because currently he leaves the stove on very low, with a very full kettle overnight, and I *really* don’t want to hear about a house fire.

    What book would I most like to get? Explosive by Beth Kery – when I missed the pricing blip on Amazon I nearly cried. [Really - granted for other reasons too.]

    The gift I’m most excited about giving is the purse my oldest daughter wants so much for Christmas. She is very difficult to shop for and to find something she will really love makes giving that gift all the sweeter.

    I would love, love, love to receive Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh. I am so hooked on the Guild Hunter series and Raphael and Elena’s journey into their relationship. All the stories so far have been very powerful, gripping reads that I can’t put down until I’m done.

    Happy Holidays!

    We generally don’t exchange gifts in the family, so I am only giving one gift this year, and which i am excited about – a collector’s edition calendar with illustrations from novel’s of my friend’s favourite author, which is not at present available in the US (or at least not on Amazon), but which I can buy in the UK. I surely hope my friend enjoys it!

    From the books, I would most like to get the JDRobb one, haven’t read it yet and it is unlikely to show up in the local library.

I found it half price at a store that was sadly going out of business. It’s the kind of thing she can wear to a ritzy New Year’s Eve party. I only hope she loves it as much as I do!

    I would love to receive Eileen Wilk’s book “Blood Challenge.”

    The present I think I’m most excited about is the cape I’m making for my 3 year old son. I think he’s gonna be pretty stoked about it. I don’t know if it’s a good idea to encourage his belief that a) he is Superman and b) he can fly but there it is.

    I’d love to win No Place to Run by Maya Banks. I too am loving this series.

    I think the gift I'm most excited about giving this year is to my best friend – she has asked for a charity donation, so I’ll be perusing the Oxfam website to find the perfect gift :) Another gift I find hilarious is a book (the same book) that a close friend and I are giving each other :)

    And I would love to win Archangel’s Consort (Nalini Singh) please!

    I bought a digital photo frame for a friend and am going to load it up with some fave pics of us and close friends. This friend isn’t so techno-savy so she’s going to love the photos loaded up for her. I can’t wait to hear her reaction (she lives out of state)!

She always gets a picture of all the grandkids together but has not had one of her kids together in years and years. So this year I have convinced my two brother to get together and have one taken.

    We are giving our oldest son an iPod this Christmas. He is not expecting anything since we just helped him with repairs to his car so it will be a surprise. Hard choice my favorite would be Nalini Singh’s book Angel Consort but I also love Jayne Ann Krentz. I have the first book of Maya Bank’s series to read so the second one would be fun. But maybe I will be introduced to a new author. Always fun.

  158. donna ann

    As for the book I want most, three of your books are high on my wish list: Archangel’s Consort, Blood Challenge and Ruthless Game. Since I can only choose one then my choice is Archangel’s Consort. Thanks for the giveaway.

  165. iokijo
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 22:13:51

    I don’t know if it qualifies, but The box of body sprays & shower gels etc. I got for those that will be at the shelter for abused women. After that I’m probably getting a G. Forman grill for the folks [yep very late shopper here]
    As for the books.. holy cow, how to pick one.. Jaci Burtons The Perfect Play, so I can pet it after I’ve read it.. lol

    Thank you very much for giving everyone a chance at such a fantastic group of books & the ereader.. It’s very appreciated.

    Dec 13, 2010 @ 22:19:11

    I dont really have one favorite gift over any others that Im giving. Most of what I got they specifically asked for. But I love to watch the family open them and pretend to be surprised. Really Im just a happy shopper.

    You Dropped A Blonde on Me is probably first from that list. Followed closely though by Archangel’s Consort, Blood Challenge, No Place to Run and Nightshade.

  169. Melissa (Books and Things)
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 22:25:43

    I think it is the gift certificate I got for my friend. She didn’t expect anything and it is to a store that has art supplies (she loves to paint). She will be 88 years old in Feb. and is just the sweetest person you will ever meet.

    I have several books I’d like on that list, but choosing one I’ll say… Nightshade by Michelle Rowen

  170. Elise K.
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 22:26:41

    I would have to say this memoir novel that I’m giving to my aunt. It’s a memoir about the life of a lovely dedicated border collie and his master. My aunt just so happens to raise and show border collies, so I’m sure it will be a hit with her and their brood of puppies.

    I would love to win Archangels Consort, Nightshade, or Raven’s Quest, although frankly I would be happy to win any of the books this holiday season. This is such a fantastic giveaway! Thanks!

  171. Megan
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 22:35:32

    The gift I am most excited to give is the Ed Hardy jacket I got for my sister. It is exactly her style but out of her price range. I know she will love it and be very surprised. It was a little more than I planned on spending but hopefully buying it will make me even more of a cool big sister.

    The book I would like most out of this is Archangels Consort. Loved the previous two books, cant wait to read this one

  172. Pam P
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 22:37:32

    I’ve got some really neat necklaces and scarves and mittens all handmade by mother for gifts, her stuff is always a hit with everyone.

  173. NG
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 22:39:34

    The gift I’m excited to give this Christmas is the Boyfriend Arm Pillow to my single Aunt. Although I don’t know how she’ll react in this kind of gift…. ~_~; She probably hit me with it and we’ll laugh together. At least it’s practical!

    I would love to win “Archangel Consort” by Nalini Singh.

    PS: I already have kindle so don’t bother to enter me on the Kindle giveaway. So the others had more chance to win.

    I recently reconnected with an old childhood friend. We originally grew up in Chicago and now are both living in Boston. I’ve lived here for over ten years, but she is a recent transplant and misses deep-dish pizza something fierce. My gift to her is Chicago deep-dish from Lou Malnati’s. God bless FedEx and liquid nitrogen!

    Because I’m a huge fan of the Nine Kingdom series, my book choice is Spellweaver by Lynn Kurland.

    The gift I’m most looking forward to giving this Xmas is an iPad to my dad. He’s just recently gotten on-line and started using the web and I know he will love it.

    As for the book I’d most like, there are just so many to choose from, but I guess I’d pick either Animal Magnetism, Blood Wyne, or Archangel’s Consort. There are also about 10 others from that list that I’d be more than happy to win.

  182. Lorraine from CA
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 23:42:29

    This year I can’t wait to give my nephew a Kindle. He is a voracious reader and I know he will love it.

    It is so hard to just choose one book. If my name is picked, I’d love to have either
    ANIMAL MAGNETISM by Jill Shalvis or
    THEN HE KISSED ME by Christie Ridgway.

    Thanks to DA and Berkley for the great contest.

  183. jessica
    Dec 13, 2010 @ 23:54:21

    Dec 14, 2010 @ 00:27:09

    The book I’d most like to give away is the same book that I would like to have – Nalini Singh’s Angel’s Consort. She’s such a brilliant writer – and no wonder with an LLB degree with honors under her belt. How lucky are we to have someone of her intelligence writing this genre?!

  187. Chelsea B.

    best gift i’m giving this year is a boxload of puzzles to my niece, who is apparently as big a puzzle freak as her cousin (my daughter) was at that age. there’s regular ones, 3-d ones, hologram ones, those really neat sphere ones that have become so popular lately. the kid is going to flip!

    the book i’d most like to receive is nalini singh’s.

    I am really excited about giving my marathon runner friend a pair of compression recovery socks! He’s running a marathon in January and I hope they will show how much I support him and care about his health:)

    The book I’d ❤ to get my hands on is a tie between A Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson and ARCHANGEL'S CONSORT by Nalini Singh!!I read chp 1&2 of the Vicki’s book and keep thinking about it, and am just plain obsessed with Nalini’s writing,lol. But honestly any of these books is a gift I’d love:D
    Thanks Berkley and DA!

  192. Michelle B
    Dec 14, 2010 @ 01:49:50

    My fiveteen years old nephew thinks that Guns ‘n’ Roses, W.A.S.P. and Motley Crue hung the moon LOL, so he’ll receive a Hardrock Cafe T-shirt from me this Christmas. I know he would love to visit the cafe in L.A. one day, so I asked a friend to buy a T-shirt for me. The book I would like to win is Explosive from Beth Kery. She’s one of the last few autor-read erotic romance authors, though her books are sometimes better sometimes rather average.

    This year my husband and I are giving each other a romantic dinner in a restaurant, because we haven’t been able to go out for a long, long time.

    Emma Holly and Jill Shalvis are always on my list so… Angel at Dawn or Animal Magnetism would be great.

    And thanks again for including non-US residents in this giveaway!
