I would like to donate three copies of my sweet, romantic novella, Forever Winter, to the giveaway.


Just imagine the perfect wedding… and then everything that could go wrong.

A Christmas Eve snowstorm barrels through the English countryside and wreaks havoc on the residents of Lorican Manor. Susanna Lorican and her fiance, Viscount Camden Beckinworth,had planned the perfect wedding but with the dress and several guests delayed, the reverend injured, and after a confrontation with Susanna’s repulsive brother-in-law, reaching the altar seemed impossible. Despite one setback after another, Susanna and Camden vowed to marry, their love too great to deny any longer…

From Author Nichole Severn


Former hit man Taigen Banvard is desperately tracking the most dangerous prey he’s ever faced: his sister. Fighting demons from his past and lethal threats at every step, he follows the trail to Torrhent Lynd, an escaped convict and the stepdaughter of the man set on using his sister as a personal assassin. With time running out and his sister’s body count rising, can Taigen trust Torrhent long enough to put an end to his nightmares?

Framed and convicted for a murder she didn’t commit, Torrhent Lynd has broken out of prison and is dead-set on getting revenge on her stepfather, the man who set her up. Running from the law and driven to mete out justice of her own, she can’t afford to trust anyone, including Taigen, the fierce and attractive man who might be the only chance she has to get out of this alive.

With the FBI on their trail, a serial killer on the loose, and hired guns looking to silence them both, the two are forced into an uneasy alliance. As they race to settle their scores and fight to stay alive, each drop of blood they shed brings them closer to their targets, and dangerously closer to each other.

    I don’t really have a favorite NA – probably because I haven’t read many yet!

  14. Emma
    Aug 22, 2013 @ 12:31:37

    I think my favorite New Adult book is still Tammara Webber’s Easy.

    I enjoyed Easy and I also enjoyed another NA book just recently but I cannot figure out which one was considered NA when I reviewed my Kindle book list.

    I like Chloe O’Neill’s Series. It may not be classically NA but it is as close as I’ve read with the exception of True by Erin McCarthy and I had issues with True so I am not sure what my feelings about the book are yet.

    Thanks again.

    Aug 22, 2013 @ 19:40:27

    I think my favorite New Adult so far is “Losing It” by Cora Carmack. I’m reading a lot of them lately though, so maybe I’ll find a new favorite! :) Thanks for the giveaways!
