April 2011 Signet GIveaway covers

ETERNAL KISS by Laura Wright

We’ve been excited about the Mark of the Vampire series ever since we first read it on submission. Whether you’ve read heaps of vampire romance already or are just coming to the subgenre, this series will have you falling in love with dangerous vampire heroes and their True Mates. But don’t take our word for it: New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh calls the books “Dark, delicious and sinfully good.”

Nicholas Roman will do anything to stop the Eternal Order of Vampires from controlling his life and using other males from his bloodline–including the son he just discovered may exist–for their vicious reign. Only a beautiful vampire stranger can help him. But what are her true motives?

VOWED IN SHADOWS by Jessa Slade

The war between good and evil has raged for millennia, with the Marked Souls caught in the middle. Now two lost souls will tip the precarious balance…

Hooked yet? Jessa Slade is a fantastic new talent who writes powerful urban fantasy romance with demon-possessed heroes. The hero of VOWED IN SHADOWS is a former missionary, seriously wounded before he was claimed by immortality. His only hope for redemption is a fallen woman who has earned a reputation as “the Naughty Nymphette.” As you can imagine, sparks fly!

RED MORTAL by Deidre Knight

Ancient gods, demons, and Spartan warriors! Fans of mythology and paranormal romance will love Deidre’s band of immortal warrior heroes. King Leonidas has long led his fellow warriors in battle against dark forces, but his biggest fight will be for love. Just as he’s found an enduring passion with Daphne, the Oracle of Delphi, he is stripped of his immortality. Now, unless they can find a way to challenge Ares together, the lovers will be separated for eternity….

May SIgnet 2011 covers

DARKFIRE KISS by Deborah Cooke

Deborah Cooke’s popular Dragonfire series features sexy shape-shifting dragon warriors. There’s definitely an allure to a strong man who’s also a powerful shapeshifter! This series has garnered critical acclaim and awards, and DARKFIRE KISS has one of our favorite heroines to date. After surviving cancer, investigative reporter Melissa Smith has resolved to live without fear. Nothing is going to stand in the way of her revenge on the man who caused her friend’s death. But it’s only when Rafferty Powell appears in her life, and the heat between them unleashes the darkfire—an awesome force of Pyr legend—that she finds herself really living.

WARRIOR BETRAYED by Addison Fox

The Sons of the Zodiac series combines ancient mythology with a band of warriors each connected to a zodiac sign.  We’ve already met the loyal Leo and deadly Scorpion warriors, and now it’s time for the Taurus warrior, Quinn Tanner, to take center stage. Security specialist Quinn is the only person who can help Montana Grant when her long-lost mother shows up spouting nonsense about Mount Olympus, immortal warriors, and long-standing curses. An angry goddess not only has put Montana’s life in danger but worldwide peace also hangs in the balance. This is the perfect series for anyone who loves fast-paced romance with alpha heroes and reading her horoscope!

ONE WHISPER AWAY by Emma Wildes

One of our sexier historical romance writers, Emma Wildes came to NAL after a wildly (pun intended) successful eBook career. Her Regencies positively sparkle with wit, charm, and romance! This book kicks off a new series about untraditional heroines who have postponed marriage until their past scandals are laid to rest. The part-Iroquois hero of this book has his hands full when a new inheritance leaves him with three half-sisters to settle. We can’t say enough about this first book in the Ladies in Waiting series.

June 2011 Signet Covers

STORM KISSED by Jessica Andersen

We also can’t praise Jessica Andersen’s sexy Nightkeeper world of modern magic-wielders enough! And neither can anyone else: Jessica’s received endorsements from J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, and Angela Knight. If you love to feel absorbed into complex worlds and casts of unforgettable secondary characters, this series is a perfect fit. You don’t want to miss Dez and Reese’s story. When Dez goes rogue to track down a powerful artifact, the hunt for him is intensely personal for bounty hunter Reese. He won’t get away with betraying her trust a second time…

EVERDARK by Elle Jasper

When the art department showed us the cover concept for this series, we actually gasped. And Elle Jasper matches the gorgeous package with an engaging, fresh, first-person urban fantasy romance. EVERDARK is the second book in the Dark Ink Chronicles series featuring a tattoo artist heroine involved in a Southern vampire war, but you can jump right into the story without reading the previous book. If you love gothic stories and Marjorie M. Liu, this is the perfect summer read!

FROSTBOUND by Sharon Ashwood

The previous book in this series (UNCHAINED) was just nominated for a RITA award, and the great reviews for The Dark Forgotten series keep piling up. This is a world where Creatures of the night (monsters, witches, vampires, demons, etc.) existed in the shadows up until the year 2000. At that time, they “came out of the crypt” on several late-night television talk shows. But the supernaturals didn’t receive a huge welcome, and equal rights have been slow in coming.

In FROSTBOUND, Lore—the hellhound that readers have been clamoring to see more of—finally gets his own story. As a snowstorm locks down the city, someone’s beheaded the wrong girl, and vampire-on-the-lam Talia Rostova thinks it was meant to be her. Now she’s the prime suspect in her own botched murder—and the prisoner of her smoking -hot hellhound neighbor.

  • Eternal Kiss, Laura Wright (4 copies)
  • Vowed in Shadows, Jessa Slade (4 copies) (And from Jessa, a set of Marked Souls trading cards included with each copy)

    My favorite spot to read in the summer is in my backyard. I like to sit out there at the table with a mug of herbal fruit tea with my books (& now my Kindle!). At night, I do the same (sometimes with a beer or glass of Moscato). It’s a very enjoyable way to start & end the day. Viva la Summer!

    The book I’d most like to receive in this giveaway is “One Whisper Away” by Emma Wildes. I haven’t read anything by her but I’ve heard good things & I ADORE interracial romances.

    Since mosquitoes really love me, my favorite place to read in the summer (actually all year long) is on my bed with a big glass of lemonade on the table (and maybe some snacks, too!).

    What a hard choice — all of the titles sound interesting — but if I had to chose, it would be either One Whisper Away by Emma Wildes because I love Regencies or Frostbound by Sharon Ashwood because the blurb sounds great and I really like the cover.

  39. Raonaid Luckwell
    May 08, 2011 @ 19:17:49

    During the winter I like to make a little spot on the floor with my doggies cuddled against me while I read. During the warm days I like to sit out in the sunshine and breeze, on my porch and enjoy a book.

    Darkfire Kiss because well you can never have too many dragon books.

    Being as I’ve gone back to school and am not only a full time mother and wife, but college student as well, I can honestly say I don’t get much kick back time. However, when I do get an afternoon or a quiet evening it’s usually spent sprawled on my comfy couch w/ my Kindle and ipod and a Laura Wright book!!

  48. SheriV
    May 08, 2011 @ 19:24:11

    My favorite place to kick back and read has to be my porch in the summer/spring when it’s raining. There’s just something about the rain that is so soothing and calming and the perfect atmosphere to me. Very tranquil and serene.

    I would either like Eternal Kiss by Laura Wright or Red Mortal by Deidre Knight.

    My favorite spot to kick back with a book in the summer is inside, avoiding both the sun, and the heat. I’m more of a winter person, myself. ;)

    I haven’t heard of Everdark by Elle Jasper, before, but it sounds like my kind of read!

  63. Danielle West

    I love to sit on my screened in porch with a bottle of water and a great book. If it’s too hot, I’ll chill out on the couch with the windows open and enjoy the sunshine but not the heat. :)

    This is the best contest/giveaway ever! There are so many amazing books up there! It’s so hard to decide what book I want the most! Since I want them all, I’ll say this – I’d like any of them except for Eternal Hunger cause I already have that one!!! I’ve been reading all these series, so I’d love the next one in any of them!! :)

    My favorite summertime reading spot is definitely at the beach. But, since I can’t make it there every day, I also like to sit out on my deck under my table umbrella with a nice glass of red wine ;)

    I love reading my books on my back patio on the swing. The awning gives me the shade I need to sit there all day and read. I enjoy drinking suntea or an icey cold adult beverage while I read. I love reading any kind of book so it is hard to choose but I would love to read Everdark. Thanks

    May 08, 2011 @ 19:37:58

  72. Diane Sallans
    May 08, 2011 @ 19:38:09

    In the summer my favorite place to read is in a lounge chair in the shade (& if that can be at a pool, ocean or lake that’s even better).
    I choose One Whisper Away by Emma Wildes (love those Regencys!).

    I’m fortunate to live next to the beach, we call it the secret beach but usually we have the whole place to ourselves. I love taking the kids to play on the beach whilst I lie out on my blanket and read under my sun umbrella. (I’ll be there a while a don’t want to burn!)

    Would love a copy of Red Mortal by Deidre Knight.

    May 08, 2011 @ 19:49:47

    I’m not fussy with my reading spots just as long as it is somewhere that I can’t hear my kids trying to kill each other.

    I would love to win Eternal Kiss as I have already heard a heap of great things about it, but would be happy with any of them.

  87. Chris Bails
    May 08, 2011 @ 19:54:16

    I like to read indoors, in the comfort of the a/c.

    I don’t care what book I get as long as it is NOT a paranormal. :)

    Guess that limits the choices, huh? ;-)

    May 08, 2011 @ 19:56:31

    I love doing this at any time of the year ;) Curling up on one of our lazy boy chairs and just reading. Even better if accompanied by some chips and dip and a can of coke lol.

    Since I’ve read the first would love Everdark, Elle Jasper please. Though was a very hard choice as would like any of the others as well lol

  92. Joanna V
    May 08, 2011 @ 20:01:24

    My favorite spot for summer reading was the screened porch on a family cottage in northern Wisconsin – unfortunately the cottage had to be sold and we all still miss it. So that leaves me with my back patio if the bugs aren’t too bad!

    I would love to get Frostbound by Sharon Ashwood.

  93. Tamara Hoffa

    May 08, 2011 @ 20:07:34

    wow ok so i love to read everywhere but my ultimate favorite place to read is when we head out to clearlake and stay right there on the lake. i always take my fishing pole and a book and sit on the dock in the sun with my pole throw in the water waiting for a nip and my eyes glued to the pages of the book in my other hand. my dad gets a kick out of it. but i find it so peaceful with the water lapping the sun warming my skin and my imagination running wild

    May 08, 2011 @ 20:08:08

    I’m an air conditioning kind of girl since it’s so freaking hot and humid where I live in the summer, also the two months of rainy season that starts in late June – so I prefer to read inside on my comfortable couch.

    I’d be interested in the Laura Wright or the Jessica Anderson book

  97. Cheryl McInnis
    May 08, 2011 @ 20:10:36

  99. Julie
    May 08, 2011 @ 20:13:27

    My favorite place to kick back and read is my living room couch, in the late evening, after dark. My house is on one of the hills around the city where I live and I can see the twinkling city lights below through my living room windows. And the book I’d most like to win a copy of is Everdark by Elle Jasper.

  104. Silver James
    May 08, 2011 @ 20:23:39

    Curled up in bed under the ceiling fan is definitely my favorite place! Especially if I have a mocha frappucino near to hand to help me cool off while reading Laura Wright’s ETERNAL KISS!

  105. donna ann
    May 08, 2011 @ 20:31:45

  106. Kim in Hawaii
    May 08, 2011 @ 20:33:01

    Favorite spot to kick back and read: The Aina Aloha Park that runs along the Pearl Harbor Channel. If I’m lucky, I’ll see a ship, sub, or even giant radar (on an oil drill platform) sail into port with the sailors and marines “manning the rails”. It is an inspiring sight!

    I would like to read Emma Wildes ONE WHISPER AWAY.

    Mahalo for the giveaway!

    I’d love to read One Whisper Away. Hot historicals? Count me in.

  108. Susan
    May 08, 2011 @ 20:37:25

    My favorite place to kick back with a good book in the summer…on the couch looking out at the garden. I just finished Jessa Slade’s VOWED IN SHADOWS. All I can say is WOW! Can’t wait for the next novel in the Marked Souls series. So… hoping I’ll be reading Storm Kissed by Jessica Andersen. I haven’t read her yet and would love to give her a try.

    You have such wonderful (and numerous) giveaways!

    Hmm, favourite place would be bed, I think. Nice and cosy and warm, especially since this spring’s been really cold.

    It’s hard to choose, but I’ll go with Eternal Kiss since I’ve just ordered the first book in the series and Nalini Singh’s recs are usually on the mark.

    It is winter here and summer seems very far away as the cold wind leeches tears from my eyes. In summer I like to read under the trees in Flagstaff gardens and would like the chance to read ”EVERDARK by Elle Jasper”.

  139. Barbara Elness
    May 08, 2011 @ 22:25:25

    My favorite place to kick back and read in the summer is inside in the nice air conditioning – mostly my office because it has the best light in the house.
    All of the books sound fabulous, but I’d most like to win a copy of Everdark.

    Eternal Kiss, Laura Wright

    I can read just about anywhere, but my favorite place in summertime is out on the boat on the lake, when I’m not fishing I am taking in the rays and reading my book.

  145. Michelle Bledsoe
    May 08, 2011 @ 22:37:08

    My favorite place to read in the summer is under an oak tree in the back yard. Our neighborhood is quiet and the birds are nice background music to reading. I cannot choose a book because I want them all.LOL.
    Thank you for the fun contest. You guys are wonderful.

  146. Madeline Iva
    May 08, 2011 @ 22:38:27

    May 08, 2011 @ 23:14:29

    Cozied up in my reading chair with the windows open to hear the birds and the breeze through the trees, and by my side a glass of lemonade (instead of a cup of hot chocolate)! Would love to read Emma Wilde’s latest “One Whisper Away”, thanks for a great giveway contest.

    May 08, 2011 @ 23:15:13

    My favorite summer spot is on the porch in the shade at the beach, with an icy glass of lemonade :). It’s too hard to choose! I want all of them, but I’ll go with Eternal Kiss this time… More than half of these books are must buys, and the rest look like they could make it to my tbb list too.

    My favorite place to read is on the couch even in summer. I dont like to read with the bright sunlight and sadly am allergic to a lot of the outdoors. So I am an indoor person.

    Frostbound is my first choice. But it was definitely not an easy one.

    My favorite spot to read is in my hometown. When I was younger, I always used to go visit this brook about a mile away from my house. I’d sit on the stone wall and stare into the water, lost in my thoughts. As I got older, I’d visit that stone wall during the summer in my shorts, would kick off my flip flops, stick my toes into the cool crisp water, and read a book.

    I would love to win VOWED IN SHADOWS by Jessa Slade, please!

    May 08, 2011 @ 23:39:35

    Best way to kick back with a book would be curled up on my couch with my two dogs sleeping *quietly*. I’ll have a cup of coffee or a glass of sweet tea. The phone is turned off. The computer is closed. Just me and the world created for me by the author.

    The book I would choose would be Red Mortal. I love Deidre’s Spartans. :)

    Put me in for Everdark, please! That cover is amazing.

  180. Cherry Mischievous
    May 09, 2011 @ 03:58:03

    My favourite place to slope off to, for a quiet read is the shed….Seriously! (stop laughing).
    Out comes the deck chair, on goes the radio ..with classic fm.. & off I go, for a spot of peace & quiet.
    I can’t hear the phone, & I can’t hear the rugby/football/cricket/tennis (Together with howls of joy/fury from himself)- dependant on which season it is …..Blissss

  185. Leslee
    May 09, 2011 @ 05:44:52

    My favorite place to read is anywhere there is air conditioning (FL is too hot to read outside in the summer). I can read anywhere, anytime which is handy with two kids so I am running around a lot. So I carry my book in my purse and I am set.

    I would love to get Storm Kissed by Jessica Andersen. I am seriously addicted to her Final Prophecy series!

  186. Mickie T
    May 09, 2011 @ 05:50:25

    I love stretching out with a good book, no matter what the season, and there are several couches in the house that are perfect for extended reading. And reading in bed, propped up with lots of pillows, is also wonderful.

    The people at Signet will be glad to hear I’ve already read a lot of their books. So I’d like to win either Everdark or Frostbound.

    This is a great giveaway!

  187. Krissy Holstein

    My favorite place to relax and read in the summer is on the swing on our back deck. It has a shade over it that can be angled to block as muchsun as desired. Plus it’s cushioned and long enough to stretch out on.
    I would love to win Emma Wildes’ One Whisper Away since I’ve never read anything by her before.

  206. Erica H
    May 09, 2011 @ 07:42:09

    Why settle for one vacation this year with the hassle of packing, traveling unpacking and then doing it all again just to get home: I am taking a vacation to a different place every week with a good book, a cold glass of tea and a deck chair in the shade and let the author take me to far away places with strange sounding names. Hello Summer!

I could never choose between Storm Kissed and Warrior betrayed though. So either of those would be great. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I love @SignetEclipse! My favorite place to kick back and read in the Summer is by my uncle’s pool. I moved a few houses down from him last year and soon realized that it was the greatest place to kick back and relax with a great book…as long as you apply sunscreen first! I got burned the first time…never again!! :)

    I would love Everdark by Elle Jasper but I’m sure I would be happy with any of the titles they all sound fabulous!! :)

    My deck has the perfect combo of bright sun and a gorgeous grapevine for privacy and a bit of shade as the day wears on. I love to kick back and either read or write, while my kids play in the yard.

    I’d love to read ONE WHISPER AWAY by Emma Wildes. Thanks for hosting another great giveaway!

    I love sprawling out on my back patio with a good book and a cool drink. RED MORTAL and ONE WHISPER AWAY both sound really interesting.

    My favorite spot to read in the summer it outside laying a woven mat on a sunny day. It’s cooler, and is a nice layer of protecting between me and the ground. Large blankets are nice too. Basically hailing back to the college days, but where I can read for pleasure instead of class.

    I’d love to win One Whisper Away by Emma Wildes :)

    Thanks for having the giveaway, Signet/NAL & DA!

    May 09, 2011 @ 11:40:36

    My favorite summer place to curl up with a book is where ever we’ve managed to go for a family visit. After a long day catching up with loved ones and fun in the sun it’s a relief to sink into bed and get away from our “get away” for a little while. Let’s face it, family reunions and gatherings are great but quite exhausting. ;)

    I’d most like to receive Frostbound. :D

    Thanks for hosting such a terrific giveaway Kerry & DA!

    May 09, 2011 @ 11:40:53

    Book I REALLY want to win- ETERNAL KISS, Laura Wright. I have yet to read her books and I am dying to. But I would also like to read-ONE WHISPER AWAY by Emma Wildes. I have been looking for a historical romance book to read and haven’t found one that interested me. This sounds good!

    My favorite place to read a book in the summer is anywhere outside. It’s only warm a few months out the year here in New York so I make my kids stay outside as much as I can get them too. It’s a win-win for both of us. They love when I sit outside and watch them play and I love to read.

    Thanks sooooo much for this giveaway! Maybe one day I will actually win a giveaway!

    Oh man, so many good books, how can I pick just one?

    My favorite spot to read is on the couch, next to my kitty and a tall glass of tea.

    I’d love Eternal Kiss, Warrior Betrayed, Storm Kissed, or Everdark. I’m easy. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  253. Mary Beth

    Thanks for this cool offer!

    My favorite place to kick back and read is in our pool while my teenager isn’t home. Alone with a good book…ahhh.

    Elle Jasper’s first book was great, and I’d love to read Everdark!

  254. SLion
    May 09, 2011 @ 11:55:13

    I love to read at the beach…waves make the perfect back drop to reading a good book. You gave me a lot of good choices to choose from but if I have to it would be Everdark by Elle Jasper. Some of your choices I have already read and all of the authors are outstanding.

  255. Ilona
    May 09, 2011 @ 12:04:39

    I’d love to win EVERDARK by Elle Jasper then sit in my favourite spot, under a shady tree in a comfortable chair, and read it in the Summer sunshine (that is assuming the UK ever gets any summer sunshine LOL).

    May 09, 2011 @ 12:33:30

    I’d love to win Emma Wildes’ One Whisper Away. Like many books in the summer, it would be consumed on my balcony, in my chaise, accompanied by boozy lemonade. And with my cat staring out at me through the glass doors for hours on end, hee.

  257. Aemelia
    May 09, 2011 @ 12:41:05

    My favorite summer reading spot is in the backyard hammock under a gorgeous willow tree. Just me, a glass of sun tea and a favorite romance story.

    Would love to read Frostbound by Sharon Ashwood.

    Those all sound like great stories! If I had a brand spanking new (and free!) copy of Elle Jasper’s Everdark, I’d read it in a shady spot on a warm summer afternoon.

  264. HeatherU
    May 09, 2011 @ 13:49:00

    Favorite reading spot? My chair at camp; it sits next to the fireplace and right at the top of a hill overlooking the lake. Just….beautiful.

  268. Hanne
    May 09, 2011 @ 14:15:17

    If I’m at home, then my favourite spot is on our tiny little balcony where my husband and I can both just barely squeeze in, or if we visit my parents, on the front deck of their boat :) I’m so increadibly happy that the godawfully cold and long winter is finally – hopefully – gone!

    ONE WHISPER AWAY by Emma Wildes is the one I’d like the most, I think.

  269. Kristi
    May 09, 2011 @ 14:19:27

    Red Mortal by Knight looks amazing!

    I just love to read on my bed, summer or winter. No screaming kids… and nice fluffy pillows. Works for me!

  270. Samantha
    May 09, 2011 @ 14:19:58

    My favorite place to curl up with a book in the summer is on my parent’s boat. Out of all of these books I would like to read Everdark the most because I love the cover. Thinking about adding each of these to my wishlist though :)

    And I’m most looking forward to EVERDARK by Elle Jasper. I really enjoyed AFTERLIGHT!

  273. Heather
    May 09, 2011 @ 15:18:50

    My favorite place to read is in my bed with noone else around. My children are with me all the time and about the only time I get to read is after they’ve gone to bed.

    I would love to win Everdark by Elle Jasper the most!

  274. Tanyaw1224
    May 09, 2011 @ 15:28:04

    I always lay out in the sunshine. I get a bottle of water and an iced coffee. I lay out and read =) Tan, book and coffee…my favorites. As for the books listed…holy cow…I love them all! After some eliminations if I pick one it would be Red Mortal. It has some more of my favorite things in it. Gods, Greek Myth and warriors = yummy! Count me in please and thanks bunches.

    May 09, 2011 @ 16:03:00

    I like to read on my Kindle in the summer, mostly inside because I don’t like the heat.

    I’d like to win eternal kiss, though I’ve not heard of most of these, so I probably should read more than one!

    I have the most comfortable lounge right next to a large bay window that has the sun coming in all day long, it’s comfortable & relaxing & the perfect place to sit back and read (with the air-conditioning on ;).

    I would love to win a copy of Everdark by Elle Jasper

    May 09, 2011 @ 17:48:45

    I read everywhere! I don’t have any special places to do so in the summer as I’m not a fan of lots of sunburn and too much heat. However, a nice, quiet and shaded porch is ideal. I get to be outside but not suffering the sun and not too much heat. Plus my furry friends can hang out there with me.

    Many of the books above will be finding their way to my ‘to read’ list but I think I’m most interested in One Whisper Away by Emma Wildes.

    Thanks to Signet/Nal and The Authors and Dear Author for the hefty additions to my books to read list and for the giveaway opportunity!

    Anyway, I live in “The Land of 10,000 Lakes,” so heading out to one of them, taking a nice walk around the lake, then settling down with a great novel and picnic lunch sounds idea!
    I would most like to win Everdark–that cover is gorgeous!

    I’d love the book from Emma Wildes.

    My favorite place to read anytime of the year is in my bath tub. I enjoy my old cast iron tub with my caddy across it. My candles lit with the nice bubble bath aroma. I would really love to enjoy reading Everdark by Elle Jasper.

  300. Dana R.
    May 09, 2011 @ 23:21:47

    My favorite spot to read is a toss up between my bed…and my parents bed. Admittedly if my bed were as large as theirs (king size! I can lay horizontally across it!) it wouldn’t be a toss up, but ah well. Maybe one day…

    My ideal spot would be a hammock. I got the opportunity to spend an afternoon reading in one last summer, and it was so wonderful.

    I’ve added most of these books to my Kindle wishlist (DA and SBTB are horrid for my TBR pile…), but the one at the very top that I’m most looking forward to is probably:

    RED MORTAL by Deidre Knight

  301. Joslynn
    May 10, 2011 @ 00:43:57

    If I am at home, my favorite spot to read my books is a toss up between relaxing on my couch or being all cozy in bed with my books. If I am out and about, sometimes I will read on the train or sitting out on the pier on Lake Michigan.
    I love the covers and titles and want to read all these books but I think I am most interested in “Everdark” by Elle Jasper and “Eternal Kiss’ By Laura Wright.

  308. MarnieColetteW
    May 10, 2011 @ 10:01:28

    I like to kick it back on the porch at the lake (aka my father’s place) out of the sun but close enough to the water to see it.

    Darkfire Kiss, Deborah Cooke — been obsessing about Dragon’s lately.

    May 10, 2011 @ 10:53:10

    My family and I go to a family camp in the summer. I always pack a ton of romance and have a wonderful time just relaxing in a lounge chair in the sun. I leave my books in the library there and they get snapped up right away. :-)

    Please put me in for the Emma Wildes book, I read something by her recently and thought it very interesting.

  310. Renee

  312. Tawanda
    May 10, 2011 @ 14:30:23

    Don’t even think about packing, it’s time for a staycation. Time to fix a pitcher of sweet tea and a platter of sliced fresh fruit; the beach is calling. I can hear the waves lapping on the shore; feel the sun kiss my skin as the salty sea breeze cools me down. As I sit on my beach chair and push my feet in the sand taking a moment to relax. I open a book to be drawn into another world, if only for a few hours. Hopefully the book will be Darkfire Kiss by Deborah or One Whisper Away by Emma Wildes.

  313. Beret
    May 10, 2011 @ 15:37:56

    After sweating under the globe willow in my front yard my favorite spot to read in the summer is at the local library! I get to be surrounded by books, it’s cool (the air conditioning rocks) and there are comfortable chairs where I can sit for a long time!

    May 10, 2011 @ 16:25:10

    May 10, 2011 @ 21:07:37

    First off a huge Thank You to Jane & Signet for a fantastic giveaway. I’ve been introduced to a lot of great writers by following you all.
    My reading spot is year round.. I call it the back room [kinda like a den] I have my reading chair & computer there. There is a door to the back yard so I don’t have to quit reading to let the dogs out. When the weather is nice I access the cats to their outside enclosure thru the window, so I get a nice breeze and can hear the wind chimes as well.. makes for a nice reading area.

    While I would be thrilled to get any of these books I’m going to say Warrior Betrayed by Addison Fox. I’m a Taurus, have to check out the Taurus Warrior : ) Added them the rest to my wishlist.. can you hear it groaning?

    I’d love to read One Whisper Away out on my balcony this summer! It’s quiet and shady and I’ve always got a nice breeze from the river.

    My favorite spot to read is on my porch. I set up my chair, grab an ice-cold lemonade and park myself under the umbrella. Enjoyable atmosphere for a good read! :) STORMED KISS would be my pick. Thanks for the chance!

    Is this an international contest? If so I’d love to be included. I actually have a lot of fave places to read, but my absolutly fave place, and it’s a place I don’t get to go to all too often, is that the beach.
    Obvuously I keep my precious books away from the water, but there’s nothing better than relaxing in the sun. I guess it’s a result of living Down Under–what can I say? LOL.

    I’d love to win Frostbound by Sharon Ashwood—it sounds fabulous.

    Great contest!

    My favorite spot to kick back and read during the summer would have to be on the porch either sitting in a chair or on a swing.

    My favorite spot to read in the summer is a parkbench anywhere. I’ve read in parks in London, Barcelona, New York, and DC (to name a few). I would dearly love to read Darkfire Kiss by Deborah Cooke on a park bench somewhere.

    My favourite place to read in the summer is out in the yard, in a nice comfy chair under the eucalyptus trees on a beautiful warm day.

    The book I would most like to read is ETERNAL KISS by Laura Wright.

    My favorite spot to read is in my bed. I love when it’s super quiet and the only thing I have to focus on is what I’m reading. I’m most interested in Red Mortal by Deidre Knight or Eternal Kiss by Laura Wright.

    Hmmm best place to read in the summer for me is in my garden, lovely warm sun, very soft breeze, a blanket on the grass, near a tree or two for the lovely dappling shadows, and my cat coming along every now and again to keep me company! (also the sound of water in the background,)

    book to have? well I’ve got my eye on Frostbound!! :)

    My best places to read are anywhere and everywhere I can! If I had to pick a favorite, it is on the couch w/ a snack and beverage or while relaxing in the bathtub :). I really don’t get to do much of either so, I do most my reading at night in bed on my iPad. As for prefered books I choose Everdark, Elle Jasper & Frostbound, Sharon Ashwood.

    My favorite place to read in summer is on our porch with a frosty cold glass of tart lemonaide.

    There are a few that look good, but I’d like Frostbound, Sharon Ashwood. I’m curious about hellhounds!

    TY so much for this giveaway. It’s such a good way to expand my list of books to try.

    On my lounger in the shade of my beautiful garden with cup of coffee/glass of wine to hand (depending on time of day). I could like there for hours with a good book. Possibly Everdark or One Whisper Away?? Thank you

    I’m a lucky gal – my DH is the best – he actually remodeled our garage for me to use as a library (he calls it Girl Land) with floor to ceiling shelves, soft comfy reclining chair, mini fridge, and coffee pot so this is my favorite place to hang out.

    I love Sharon Ashwood, so I’d love to win a copy of Frostbound! This series rocks!

    Just a quick comment; on the submittance form for winners international numbers cannot be entered as it doesn’t approve the format which would be ## ## #### #### and it wants it to be (###)### #### which is 2 digits short and thus not useable.

    Oh sweet! A very nice giveaway.

    I like to kick-back on the lounge on the back deck. Unfortunately, it’s already reaching the mid 90’s by noon. So, it’s back to the comfy couch. Actually, anywhere I can read undisturbed is a great place!

    I haven’t read this author, yet, but I have heard great things. I would like ONE WHISPER AWAY by Emma Wildes please.

    Thank you.
