Berkley Fall Giveaway

It’s time for the Fall 2010 edition of the Berkley/Jove giveaway, and we have a lot of terrific titles coming up, a few of which will be highlighted below. As always, for more information and a complete listing of books each month, please visit www.berkleyjoveauthors.com. And huge thanks to Jane and Dear Author for hosting this now regular event!

September

THE DARKEST HOUR, Maya Banks
We just had a terrific giveaway for THE DARKEST HOUR on Dear Author accompanied by a great review from Jane, but I just can’t resist talking about THE DARKEST HOUR again. It’s the first book in Maya’s bold new KGI series and it takes readers on a whirlwind of emotions, highlighted by pulse-pounding action. I love stories of reunited lovers, and Maya delivers one of the best in THE DARKEST HOUR.

IMMORTAL SEA, Virginia Kantra
Virginia Kantra is back with the fourth book in her Children of the Sea series, and IMMORTAL SEA is also the beginning of a new trilogy within the series. Many readers may remember Morgan from previous books, and he had an especially memorable appearance in Virginia’s novella “Shifting Sea” in the anthology BURNING UP. Morgan is an absolutely delicious hero, and this immortal finally meets his match in IMMORTAL SEA. The Children of the Sea series is one of my all-time favorites, and I’m thrilled Virginia decided to tell Morgan’s story.

WICKED SURRENDER, Jade Lee
For those readers looking for a dark, sexy, compelling historical, look no further than WICKED SURRENDER. Set against the world of the theater, it features a strong, complex heroine and a seductive, bad boy hero that is impossible to resist.

FORBIDDEN, Christina Phillips
FORBIDDEN is Christina’s first book, and it takes place in Roman Britain with a Druid heroine who falls in love with someone forbidden to her–a Roman centurion. Imaginative, scorchingly hot and still wildly romantic, FORBIDDEN is a grand debut.

October

THE IRON DUKE, Meljean Brook
Readers got a taste of Meljean’s bold new steampunk world of the Iron Seas in her novella, “Here There Be Monsters” (also in BURNING UP) and I haven’t come across a single reader who read the novella and who isn’t now dying to read THE IRON DUKE. Steampunk is a new concept for many romance readers (for more on steampunk see Meljean’s interview on Dear Author) but Meljean puts her unique spin on steampunk by combining it with passionate, exquisitely emotional romance.

THE ACCIDENTAL WEDDING, Anne Gracie
National bestselling author Anne Gracie is back with another Regency-set luscious historical romance–this time, about a man who wakes up after an accident in a country cottage, where he is nursed back to health by an innocent beauty and five not-so-innocent orphaned children. Anne’s storytelling talent really sparkles in this romance.

SINFUL IN SATIN, Madeline Hunter
The next in Madeline’s spectacular New York Times bestselling quartet that began with RAVISHING IN READ and PROVOCATIVE IN PEARLS. Celia, the daughter of a famed London courtesan, was trained in the art of pleasure…but she’s about to get her first lesson in love.

LUCK BE A LADY, Cathie Linz
Known for her injecting her stories with equal doses of warmth and humor, Cathie’s talents are on full display in her latest contemporary romance. In LUCK BE A LADY, the librarian heroine ends up on a road trip across Nevada with the cop hero, and the results are worthy of a classic 30′s screwball romantic comedy–sheer delight!

November

A BEWITCHING BRIDE, Elizabeth Thornton
From the late, great Elizabeth Thornton comes this final, wonderful historical romance, the third in an irresistible trilogy about three Scotsmen with psychic abilities. Gavin Hepburn has yet to use his powers, but from the moment he lays eyes on Kate, he knows he has found the young beauty he has been sent to save.

PLAY OF PASSION, Nalini Singh
I know lots of readers who are eagerly awaiting the next Psy-Changeling romance, and believe me, it’s worth the wait. It’s a book completely set in the Snow Dancer den, and the romance between Snow Dancer lieutenant Indigo and pack member Drew is as delicious as a box of finest truffles. More so, because it’s completely calorie-free and you can read it again and again with none of the guilt!

ENEMY WITHIN, Marcella Burnard
In this terrific debut novel by Marcella Burnard, starship Captain Alexandra Rose is clinging to her shattered past and can't afford the desire pirate leader Cullen fires within her. Cullen is only out to protect his empire but must join forces with a woman he can't resist to defeat a threat beyond the scope of the imagination. A brand-new voice in sci-fi romance, Marcella weaves a tale full of steamy romance and fast-paced action that readers won't want to miss.

DEADLY INTENT, Kylie Brant
Acclaimed author Kylie Brant is back with a new book in her Mind Hunters romantic suspense series, DEADLY INTENT. It’s riveting and masterful, truly romantic suspense at it’s best, as two investigators race against time and a Colorado blizzard to find a girl who’s been abducted from her home–for the second time.


Cindy Hwang is the executive editor of Berkley who is actively seeking fresh voices in romance. In her spare time, she enjoys Bravo Reality TV and cinema remakes of comic books.

    Ok, I don’t dare look at the entire list of 110 books – my Amazon wishlist is ridiculous as it is! So, my top 3 of the ones in the post are:

    Forbidden – Christina Phillips
    Iron Duke – Meljean Brook
    Enemy Within – Marcella Burnard

    I for the most part can’t stand reality TV – pretty much the only thing I watch that might qualify is HGTV’s Income Property – and that mostly b/c of the host. ;)

    Berkley has become my go to publisher for the romances I crave. They have so many great authors and I think I have read more books from this one publisher than many of the others combined! Whatever Cindy and everyone involved with the Berkley romances keep up the great work!!!!

    My favorite reality TV show is The Amazing Race. I would love the opportunity to travel the world and do all of the interesting things they get to do in such a short amount of time. If stratifies my wanderlust cravings, since I don’t have the budget to travel to those places myself.

    My three top picks would be

    1. The Darkest Hour by Maya Banks (have been anxiously awaiting this one since she announced she was writing the series)

    2. Forbidden by Christina Phillips

    My favorite reality show is Real World. I’m a big people watcher & the characters on that show always fascinate me. I’ve been watching it since I was 11.

  81. Larenda
    Sep 01, 2010 @ 15:39:35

    Fabulous giveaway. So many wonderful books coming out by Berkley and many of them auto-buy authors for me. So instead I’ll pick three books by authors I’ve heard about but have yet to try.

    Healer’s Choise, Jory Strong
    Forbidden, Christina Phillips
    Warrior Avenged, Addison Fox

    As for reality TV, I don’t currently own a TV so it has been awhile since I’ve followed any particular show but I do find them strangely addicting when I happen to catch an eposide.

    I think the last one I saw was “Come Dine with Me” – the election edition that was shown while waiting for the UK election results in May.

    When I lived in the US I loved Amazing Race and the first few years fo Trading Spaces. (I don’t even know if they are still on the air.)

    I’d also love to see So You Think You Can Dance and Project Runway again. (So, it is a very good thing I no longer have a TV and live in the UK – I’d never get any reading done between all those reality shows.)

  82. Kim Kelly
    Sep 01, 2010 @ 15:43:54

    1. Darkest Hour Maya Banks
    2. Riding the Night Jaci Burton

  83. Raonaid Luckwell
    Sep 01, 2010 @ 15:46:20

    Ehh, I’m not too fond of reality shows and really don’t watch them. The only shows that I can be found watching is NSIS, Ghost Adventures, and now and then Wrestling. That is the bulk of my tv watching.

    Forbidden – Christina Phillips
    The Darkest Hour – Maya Banks
    Atlantis Betrayed – Alyssa Day

  84. Julie M.

    My top three:

    1: Forbidden by Christina Phillips
    2: Enemy Within by Marcella Burnard

    I don’t have a favorite reality show, because I hate the concept, and I dislike the way that they are carried out. I’ve no interest in watching people make fools of themselves for the camera, and all too frequently that’s what happens.
