WINNERS of The Darkest Hour Giveaway

The Darkest Hour by Maya BanksThe follower were our winners for The Darkest Hour giveaway.   We asked them to share with us their last best read.   All winners have been contacted.   Thanks for entering folks!

ShellBell: Maya Banks is one of my favourite authors, but guaranteed that this will be yet another eBook that I won’t be able to purchase due to geographical restrictions!

Diane V “Would love to win this – but if not I’m buying it and taking it with me on vacation September 11th.

Toss up between last two books I read which one I loved the most: Elizabeth Jennings “”Shadows at Midnight”” or Stacia Kane’s “”City of Ghosts””.”

azteclady “The last good book I’ve read? Gah, I’ve been reading up a storm, let me see…

I liked Jodi Thomas’ Welcome to Harmony quite a bit. I just reread Dorothy L. Sayers’ Whose Body?, which is excellent. Robin D. Owens’ Heart Dance, book 7 in her Heart series–very, very good. Oh and I also just read Shannon Stacey’s 72 Hours, from her Adrenaline anthology.

There are more, but these are off the top of my head.

Thank you for the chance to win a copy of The Darkest Hour!”

Pamk: I just finished When Blood Calls by JK Beck. Very interesting paranormal. Like a paranormal Law & Order. Not the boring one but the SVU one that rocks.

Nikki Barrett: “I have recently started to read Maya Banks Books. And since my favorite genre is romantic suspense, I’m psyched to hear that she’s writing in that genre.

The last good book I read was Playing with Fire, by Amy Knupp. LOVED it!!

I see a lot of comments talking about the new Elizabeth Jennings. I have that on my wish list, so I’m glad that a lot of people like it.”

Lada: “Would love to try Maya Banks and this sounds like a good place to start!!

I’m reading Anne Stuart’s Ruthless and am enjoying it. I’ve just listened to Alan Bradley’s The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and found it utterly charming. Mad love for the voice talent!!”

Miranda: “I’m excited about this release from Maya Banks. I enjoy her work and I am anxious to read something different from her. The last book I read was “”Water Bound”” by Christine Feehan. I loved it! It is the first in her new series, Sisters of the Heart. It is a spin-off of her “”Drake Sisters”” series.

Hi Alyssa! Wild Card is one of my favorites! I love Nathan and Bella’s story! I am a huge fan of Lora Leighs Tempting Seals and Elite Ops series'”

Lori: I loved Black Jack by Lora Leigh. Before that I read Unbroken by Maya Banks. Right now I’m reading Take Me by Bella Andre.

Lindsay: The last good book I read was “Nauti and Wild” by Lora Leigh and Jaci Burton.

Mhlia: I just finished “His At Night” by Sherry Thomas… which I bought because of a review from yall. It was *good*!
