Berkley Summer Giveaway: This is full of awesome!

Cindy Hwang, executive editor of Berkley, hosts a quarterly review/giveaway of Berkley books.   This is the summer entry:

Summer is finally here, and we’re very excited about our upcoming Berkley/Jove romances–perfect for warm, sultry nights and days at the beach. As always, thanks to Jane and DearAuthor.com for allowing us to share some of our exciting new books with you. And don’t forget, this is still just a small sampling of our summer goodies. For a complete list of upcoming romances with descriptions, visit www.berkleyjoveauthors.com.

We are giving away 48 ARCs or finished copies (mostly ARCs) to 48 different commenters.   Scroll to the bottom to read the instructions on how to enter.

UPDATE: Please note two things. First, Hot Finish is not part of the giveaway. It is being profiled because it is awesome but we are going to have a big stand alone giveaway for this book at the end of the month. Again, because it is awesome and we want to give more than two books away. You can email me at jane @dearauthor.com if you want to change your Hot Finish pick to something else.

Second, the contest will end on Saturday at 12 noon CST and I’ll post the winners on Sunday.

June

Three covers

THE FORBIDDEN ROSE, Joanna Bourne
Joanna Bourne’s THE SPYMASTER’S LADY was one of the most talked about historical romances when it was published two years ago, and since then she’s only solidified her status as a rising star in historical romance. So to call THE FORBIDDEN ROSE hotly anticipated is an understatement! THE FORBIDDEN ROSE is the third in the Spymaster series and features the romance of Marguerite de Fleurignac and William Doyle–two characters that have intrigued readers since they were introduced in the earlier books.

SKIN TIGHT, Ava Gray
SKIN TIGHT is Ava Gray’s follow-up to the sizzling SKIN GAME, and this book is just as dark, edgy, sexy and fabulous as the first book. Both Mia Sauter and Addison Foster were introduced in SKIN GAME, and after their chemistry together sizzle the pages, I know I’m not alone with my desire to see them again! Their story was just as memorable as I knew it would be.

CRUSH ON YOU, Christie Ridgway
What’s more romantic than weddings in June? Well, how about weddings in June in the California wine country then at a legendary winery? If you’re like me, then you won’t be able to resist CRUSH ON YOU, the first in a new trilogy of wonderful contemporary romance featuring the Baci sisters and their efforts to save Tanti Baci, their family winery, from bankruptcy by transforming it into the perfect wedding destination. It’s full of warmth, humor, complex family relationships, and of course, heart-melting romance.

July

Meljean Nalini Jennifer

LADY ISABELLA’S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE, Jennifer Ashley
This is Jennifer Ashley’s first Berkley historical romance, and we’re thrilled to be publishing the second book in her Highland Pleasures series, the sequel to the acclaimed THE MADNESS OF LORD IAN MACKENZIE. LADY ISABELLA is just as riveting a read as LORD IAN, and historical romance fans definitely shouldn’t miss this!

DEMON BLOOD, Meljean Brook
Meljean’s fabulous Guardian paranormal romance series continues with DEMON BLOOD, which very well may be my personal favorite Guardian romance to date–and that’s really saying something! DEMON BLOOD centers around Rosalia, a Guardian who can’t quite stay away from Deacon, a vampire who’s so embittered by his experiences all he wants is to be left alone. I think Meljean is an awesome writer, and DEMON BLOOD deliver everything I want to read: page-turning action, a clever plot, sizzling sexual tension and heartbreaking romance, and two of the most memorable characters you’ll ever meet.

BONDS OF JUSTICE, Nalini Singh
Nalini Singh should be named a national treasure of New Zealand for the joy she’s brought to readers all over the world. The Psy-Changeling series has a huge fanbase, and no wonder–Nalini never disappoints. BONDS OF JUSTICE is the new Psy-Changeling romance, and again, Nalini crafts an utterly enthralling tale about a human cop, Max Shannon, who despite his reservations, can’t help but be drawn to Psy Sophia Russo, who is a lot more than she seems to be. And for fans of enigmatic Psy Councilor Kaleb Krychek–all I can say is you’re in for a treat!

August

Hot Finish

HOT FINISH, Erin McCarthy
I love love love Erin’s smart, sexy Fast Track contemporary romance series, and from the moment she introduced Suzanne and Ryder in the first book, FLAT-OUT SEXY, I knew their romance would be something special. And it absolutely is–Suzanne and Ryder have a sexual chemistry together that practically leaps off the page, and what’s so wonderful is how funny they are together too. If you love second chance romances, you’ll love HOT FINISH!

SHADOWS AT MIDNIGHT, Elizabeth Jennings
Many of you may know Elizabeth Jennings as Lisa Marie Rice–no matter which name she writes under, she always delivers sexy, memorable romantic suspense. SHADOWS AT MIDNIGHT is definitely no exception–it’s the story of Claire Day, who’s promising career as a Defense Intelligence Agency analyst got derailed in an embassy bombing that also fractured her memory. Now the only man who may hold the key to her nightmares is former Marine Gunnery Sergeant Daniel Weston, who believed that the woman he loved died in the blast. Now he has a chance to help her remember the past–and him.

DEVIL’S HIGHLANDER, Veronica Wolff
Known for her innovative and exciting time travel romances set in Scotland, Veronica decided to make the leap into the past permanent, and has written a new Scottish historical romance series featuring the members of the Highlander clan MacAlpin–a family that must make their future in a land devastated by civil strife. DEVIL’S HIGHLANDER is a wonderful, thrilling blend of fascinating Scottish history and heartstopping romance–my favorite kind!

  71. Dana
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:49:16

    Hmmm….top two? Ok well my top picks would be

    1) Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh
    3) Hot Finish by Erin McCarthy

    BUT favorite cover would have to go to Shadows at Midnight by Elizabeth Jennings.

    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:50:27

    i would love hot finish or water bound by chritine feehan. i think demon blood has the best cover

  73. KC
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:52:34

    Thanks! My choices:

    Hot Finish/Erin McCarthy
    Shadows at Midnight/Elizabeth Jennings

    Fave cover – tie b/w Hot Finish & Demon Blood

    P.S. did you mean Skin Tight/Ava Gray in the copy list? ’cause if it’s Skin Heat (due out 1/11), I’d like that one! I just finished Skin Game & Skin Tight & they’re great reads.

  74. Ana
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:54:45

    Two books:

    Forbidden Rose by Johanna Bourne
    Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh

  75. Scorpio M.
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:55:22

    My top 2:
    OPEN COUNTRY, Kaki Warner
    LADY ISABELLA'S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE, Jennifer Ashley

    Favorite cover is SKIN TIGHT, Ava Gray…loving the man-back.

  76. KeriM
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:56:15

    Oh thank you for the chance! My picks are:
    Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage- Jennifer Ashley and Water Bound-Christine Feehan.

    Already bought and read Skin Tight and it was sexy and hot! Lurved it! That is my cover vote.

  77. Cassie
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:56:26

    Great giveaways! My top two:

    1. Christie Ridgway, Crush on You
    2. Joanna Bourne, The Forbidden Rose

    As for favorite cover…I have to admit, I’m not actually a big fan of any of them. Crush on You appeals to me in that it’s a clean design aesthetic, but it doesn’t stand out in any way. The rest look like they’re interchangeable with a dozen other romance and paranormal titles.

  78. MaryK
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:58:46

    LADY ISABELLA'S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE
    SHADOWS AT MIDNIGHT

    I like the Lady Isabella cover best. It jumps out at me every time I see it.

  79. Berinn Rae
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 06:58:53

    Limiting to my top 2 choices is tough! I’ll have to go with Demon Blood (Brook) and Bonds of Justice (Singh).
    Favorite cover? Also tough. I’ll go with Demon Blood.

  80. Fiona Shin
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:00:23

    I would love an ARC of The Forbidden Rose by Joanna Bourne and Assassin’s Honor by Monica Burns, although, I have to admit Demon Blood’s cover is pretty darn hawt. *_* Too bad I don’t read paranormal romance.

  81. Carin
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:00:42

    Two Books:
    Crush on You

  85. Jennifer
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:07:28

    My picks:

    THE FORBIDDEN ROSE, Joanna Bourne (I already bought the e-book but would love to have an actual book or ARC as well)
    LADY ISABELLA'S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE, Jennifer Ashley

    I’d say LADY ISABELLA'S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE has the nicest cover.

  86. JW
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:07:41

    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:25:13

    So many great books, Wow!
    I will live to read. I read so many good things about these two author but I haven’t had the pleasure to read their work yet.
    1-DEMON BLOOD, Meljean Brook
    2-SHADOWS AT MIDNIGHT, Elizabeth Jennings

    I love Demon’s Blood cover. It’s sexy and beautiful.

  102. Annmarie
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:25:45

    I have pre-ordered/ordered most of these!

    I would LOVE to have Christie Ridgway’s CRUSH ON YOU and Erin McCarthy’s HOT FINISH.

    I own or will own the rest. In fact, Elizabeth Jennings’ SHADOWS AT MIDNIGHT has me consumed with want. I pre-ordered it a million years ago.

    My favorite cover? SHADOWS AT MIDNIGHT. I am ALL ABOUT neck kissing.

    Love these contests. Just entering is fun!

  103. Terry MacFarland
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:26:10

  104. MeganS.
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:32:22

    Holy cow, what an awesome giveaway.

    My favorite cover is Shadows at Midnight — I like the evocative, nighttime DC cityscape. It’s just different enough from the more stereotypical covers without losing genre identification.

    My two picks would be:

    ASSASSIN'S HONOR, by Monica Burns
    HOME IS WHERE THE BARK IS, by Kandy Shepard

  105. Rosalie Lario
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:34:53

    Great giveaway! I love these.

    BONDS OF JUSTICE, Nalini Singh
    DEMON BLOOD, Meljean Brook

    I’m a big fan of Nalini Singh, so Bonds of Justice is no mystery. And I chose Demon Blood because the cover is so great! It’s my favorite of the bunch!

  106. Carina Jorge
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:37:38

    Oh! So many good titles!

    My two picks:
    - Bonds of Justice – Nalini Singh
    - Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage – Jennifer Ashley

    My favourite cover is Elizabeth Jennings’s Shadows at Midnight. :)

  107. Iswari
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:38:30

    This is an awesome contest – so many good books to chooose from!

    However, since I can only pick two, I would go for “Bonds Of Justine” by Nalini Singh and “Demon Blood,” by Meljean Brook.

    I would have to say my favorite cover is the one for “Bonds Of Justice.” I lovet the tatoo! :-)

  108. Megan Buckley
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:39:31

    My pick for best cover goes to Meljean Brook’s Demon Blood for the amount of detail and artistry.

    I don’t know what to pick since I’ve already pre-ordered almost all of these books on Amazon!

    I think I’ll go with Open Country and Assassin’s Honor. They are both on my list of books to keep an eye out for :)

  109. Sarah
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:42:56

    1.) Forbidden Rose! (Over here! Pick me, pick me, pick me! I LOVED the first one. ;)

    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:46:08

    I would love to have
    Demon Blood by Meljean Brook
    Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh

    I think the best cover is Demon Blood, it definitely stands out to me as something a little different. If walking through the book store I would at least pick it up to read the back because of the cover alone.

  114. Natasha A.
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 07:48:31

    Skin Tight and Hot Finish! Definitely! This is a great giveaway! As for favourite cover? I have to go with MelJean.

    I would have to say my top 2 picks are “DEMON BLOOD” & “BONDS OF JUSTICE” because these 2 series have me hooked, I will buy the books anyway :)

    I love the cover of “DEMON BLOOD” because it really grabs attention & at the same time I think it gives readers a good idea of the type of story you are getting.

  121. jennifer
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:00:04

    DEMON BLOOD, Meljean Brook
    LADY ISABELLA'S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE, Jennifer Ashley

    Favorite cover, MY WAY TO HELL (Dakota Cassidy). The whole series has adorable artwork.

  122. Caroline
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:03:33

    Lady Isabella’s Scandalous marriage would be my favorite cover – Because I love shimmery blue ballgowns, and this cover draws me like moth to flame, the colour and the richness giving a glimpse into the true colour of the regency world. It reminds me of the cover for Evangeline Collins’ book, Her Ladyship’s Companion. Sumptuous orange! I bought that book for its cover, I won’t lie, and read it in one sitting on a weekend. :)

    Devil’s Highlander and The Forbidden Rose would be the two books I would want to read. I really enjoy intrigue surrounding regency London and Scot romance and powerful lairds who are arrogant and powerful both in love and in war!

  123. Heather Brewer
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:04:00

    only 2 – wow hard choice. I have to say Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh and Skin Heat by Ava Gray.

    As far as hottest cover – that’s easy, Hot Finish is definitely a very HOT cover.

  124. Alex D
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:05:23

    The two I want most are:

  125. Collette
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:06:19

    These all really look great.

    My first two picks would be Lady Isabelle’s Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley and Skin Tight by Ava Gray. I really enjoyed the two previous books in these series by the respective authors.

    My favorite cover is The Forbidden Rose. There’s something almost old school about it without it being a clinch cover.

  126. Natasha R
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:08:16

    How do I pick just two! lol! oh well, I’ll try. I wish Hot Finish was included in the giveaway! So looking forward to Ryder’s book!

    My choices are ironically already on hold at the library when they come in, but I’m impatient! So they are:

    BONDS OF JUSTICE by Nalini Singh
    DEMON BLOOD by Meljean Brook

    Best cover goes to DEMON BLOOD. If that’s what female Guardians look like I might switch sides.

  137. Mollie

    I like the Elizabeth Jennings cover the best

  139. Lana
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:21:54

  140. JenM

    Great Giveaway! My two choices are:

    - SKIN TIGHT(or Skin Heat – whichever Ava Gray you are giving away), or
    - OPEN COUNTRY

    The covers seem pretty generic to me, but if I have to choose, I like The Devil’s Highlander – you can never go wrong with a man in a kilt.

  141. Sotheara
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:24:09

    1. Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley

    How could anyone resist Nalini Singh – Bonds of Justice is definitely my first pick.
    I’m interested in the Devil’s Highlander by Veronica Wolff – not only because of the MacAlpine connection :-)

    Best cover … hmmm. Tough call. Demon Blood has to win out though – outstanding cover artwork.

    I would love Bonds of Justice or shadows at midnight. I am also excited about Crush on You… maybe Skin Heat. The cover of devils highlander almost tempts me to get back into historicals, which I haven’t read in years.

  150. Katie
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:39:34

    I’m definitely interested in Shadows at Midnight and Demon Blood. As for the favorite cover, that’s a tough one. I’d probably have to go with Ava Gray’s Skin Tight.

    Please put my name in for:

    1. Corralled – Lorelei James

    Favorite cover? Demon Blood’s cover is pretty awesome in an epic metal album sort of way. I think I’d go with that.

  154. Heather
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 08:46:14

    I think the best cover is Demon Blood. Gorgeous!

    “Bonds of Justice”-Nalini Singh
    “Shadows at Midnight”-Elizabeth Jennings

    My favorite cover would have to be “Skin Tight,” who doesn’t love a sexy back? I might not necessarily want to read that book but boy, I’d look at the cover all day.

    The ones I am most looking forward to are Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh and Shadows at Midnight by Elizabeth Jennings. The cover that most caught my eye was for Bonds of Justice.

    I would like to get in the running for:

    1. Johanna Bourne
    2. Jennifer Ashley

    I like Shadows at Midnight best–very 80s Harlequin in my mind.

    I also would like to take the opportunity to point out that there are only 3 full heads on the covers of all these books, and one of them is the back of a head. I am so done with the headless/half head/ man’s back covers.

    I decided this after looking at the cover of Julia Quinn’s latest. Something about it looked odd. The heroine had green eyes and wasn’t that nice? It was. The whole insert-your-own-head-here is played out. Yeesh.
