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!

    1. BONDS OF JUSTICE/Nalini Singh
    2. CRUSH ON YOU/Christie Ridgway

    I think the DEMON BLOOD cover does the best job of establishing the mood of the book, and it’s definitely a cover that would get my attention and get me to pick it up at the bookstore.

    Shadow’s at Midnight by Elizabeth Jennings

    I can’t wait for either of these. I didn’t even realize there was another Elizabeth Jennings coming out so thanks for the heads up.

    My favorite cover is Crush on You because I was in a friend’s wedding last year and she wore purple heels (Manolos!) with her traditional gown. They were a gift from her sister the night before the wedding and she decided to wear them as soon as she saw them.

  57. Julie

    Holy crap, people come out of the woodworks for the chance of free books!
    I’d love a copy of Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage or Bonds of Justice. I’m not a fan of any of the covers though.

  60. Anon76
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 23:12:38

    I usually don’t enter contests, but…dayum, had to do so this time.

    I love historicals so The Forbidden Rose and Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marraige would be my top picks.

    However, I would have chosen some of the other offerings if not for the fact I’m broke and would hate to fall in love with a series while unable to immediatley purchase the backlist. LOL

    As for covers, Demon Blood would be my choice. I read more than just historicals, and that cover would have me stopping to investigate the content.

  61. Niveau
    Jun 09, 2010 @ 23:16:26

    I’d love to read… well, most of these, but especially The Forbidden Rose by Jo Bourne and Crush on You by Christie Ridgway. Two new books from two of my favourite authors? Bliss!

    Oh boy! So great! I’d like to win “Crush on You” and “Hot Finish”, if I could.

    I am a newcomer to romance. I’ve had clinical depression for YEARS. But in the past year, my mood has suddenly been elevated by romance fiction.

    At first, I didn’t realize it until I read a mainstream novel and ,although it was good, I ended up sobbing my heart out!

    I’ve become very comforted by Happy Endings. Yes, I know its not realistic but somehow realism gives me the blues and I want to continue to heal withn Happy endings! Please consider me!

    Corralled by Lorelei James is one of my most anticipated reads this summer. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    The Forbidden Rose by Joanna Bourne also sounds good. I haven’t read any of the Spymaster books but I have heard so many good things about them.

    p.s. can’t wait for Hot Finish and looking forward to what you have planned for later in the month. Erin McCarthy is one of my favorite authors!

    My two choices are Joanna Bourne’s Forbidden Rose and Elizabeth Jennings’ Shadows at Midnight.

    As for the cover, I like Lady Isabella’s Scandalour Marriage. The color contrast is eye-catching and it’s quite sexy in a teasing way ;)

    I just realized in my comment, #552, that I didn’t state that my favorite cover was Demon Blood. Whoops!

  177. J Myers
    Jun 11, 2010 @ 11:23:36

    Oh, I have 2 of these books on my hope to buy list:

    First Joanna Bourne – “The Forbidden Rose” – “The Spymaster’s Lady” was just terrific and I would love to read this one.

    Second would be Elizabeth Jenning’s “Shadows at Midnight” I am a huge RS girl and thought “Pursuit” was great.

    My favorite cover would be “Shadows at Midnight” – I think it portrays the title very well.

    Thanks so much for the chance!

    I’d love to get copies of Nalini Singh’s Bonds of Justice and Meljean Brook’s Demon Blood. Both are authors I discovered while I was serving in Iraq last year, so I’m a new fangirl convert and I’m eagerly awaiting both books.
    As far as favorite cover goes, Erin McCarthy’s Hot Finish takes the cake because the model has *gasp* chest hair. Its one of the only covers I know of where the guy isn’t completely hairless and the cover of Hot Finish is incredibly sexy.

    Jane, the only book I’m dying to request is “Welcome to Harmony” by Jodi Thomas. I adore her books and own every one that’s in print except for “Harmony”. Hope Berkeley decides to reprint her older ones!!!!

    The wait of course to read “the Forbidden Rose” by Joanna Bourne and “Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage” by Jennifer Ashley is excruciating, but I’m holding out for singed copies to buy at RWA National.

    As far as covers go, I find the artwork for Nalini Singh’s books has always been exceptional. “Bonds of Justice” is another such.

    I love the Christie Ridway cover. It’s sort of has the Nora Roberts Bridal quartet vibe but is more interesting visually.

    I’d love to win Coralled by Lorelei James or LADY ISABELLA'S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE by Jennifer Ashley.

    Thanks for your generosity!!
