(I’m going to be reposting the contest rules at the beginning of each post. If you’ve already read them, scroll down for today’s post and questions.)

To celebrate the release of ENTWINED, I’m giving away a BUNCH of prizes. There are two parts to this contest:

Post the ENTWINED widget (below) on your FB page, blog sidebar, tweet about the contest and/or book, email your friends and spread the word…basically, any way you talk up the book or contest will enter you for one of three $25 gift cards to the online bookstore of your choice. Winners will be selected after I return from RWA Nationals, the first week in August. Once you’ve done that, email me at elisabeth@elisabethnaughton.com and tell me blabbed about ENTWINED. Be sure to put ENTWINED Release Contest in the subject line. (If you already posted the widget from the blog post I did last week, you’re already entered.) Enter as many times as you like. Every time you spread the word about book 2 in the Eternal Guardians series, send me an email.

PART TWO: Each day for the next two weeks I’ll be giving away AWESOME prizes and spotlighting some fabulous authors. Comment on the daily post to be entered into that day’s drawing. Winners will be chosen randomly from comments and will get to pick their prize. Once a prize is chosen, it’s crossed off the list. Here are the prizes you can win:

Today we’ve got Farrah Rochon on the blog!

Farrah’s newest series is centered around a fictional NFL football team, which, as an admitted sports fanatic, is right up her alley. Here’s the blurb for HUDDLE WITH ME TONIGHT, which releases on September 1st:

All Paige Turner wants is to be taken seriously as a journalist. The entertainment columnist and blogger extraordinaire gets more notoriety than she planned when her scathing review of NFL superstar Torrian Smallwood’s memoir sparks an online confrontation. But that’s nothing compared to the sensual heat that tackles her when she meets the heart-stoppingly sexy athlete face-to-face…

Torrian can’t let Paige derail his dream of a new career as a restauranteur. Even if the sassy, sultry writer is making America’s favorite wide receiver yearn to be on the receiving end of her desire. And with a reality TV cook-off propelling them into the spotlight, Torrian can no longer hide his passionate secret goal–to build a future with the woman who’s making an end run around his heart…

    I love sports heroes… I just did a blog post about it the other day, asking for additional sport hero book recommendations. I will definately have to check this one out. My favorites are the Chicago Stars series by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, The Hot Zone series by Carly Phillips, and the Chinooks Hockey Team series by Rachel Gibson.

    I very much like sports stories. It’s a great foundation for a series and I’m currently really into hockey themed stories.

    In real life, I’m not a big sports person. Know next to nothing about them, actually. But in books, I’m all for it! Football is a good one to read about, with big hunky heroes!

    Living with 3 males, there is always so much sport talking going on that I tend to stay clear of it with the romance stories I pick. I think the last one was Double Play by Jill Shalvis, which was actually really a treat to read.

    Funny, I’m not a huge sports fan in reality, but I kind of like them all in books–baseball, football, hockey, and whatever else… 🙂

    Id have to say baseball is my favorite sport with basketball as a close second. Id’ have to say Jill Shalvis does a good job writing a romance centered on baseball….I’d love to read more authors that have the same sort of feel…

    I love sports, the only woman in my family that does. I have always enjoyed romance books with a sports theme. I’ve probably read more baseball and hockey stories than any other. I’d like to read a soccer story sometime.

    I do enjoy sports heroes. And I think baseball might be my favorite. This sounds great I havent read any with football before.

    I’m not much for sports of any type but “sports heroes” are fine as long as the emphasis is on the evolving relationship and not the technical aspects of the sport itself.

    I don’t usually read sports romances, but I recently finished a wrestling one that was fun. 😀

    I have not recently read any sports themed books but I did go see Just Wright at the movies and it has basketball players in it.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, folks! And, Elisabeth, thanks for having me! I’m so happy to see so many sports lovers. I grew up in a football family, so there was no getting away from it. I love it, though, so it doesn’t matter. 🙂

    Some of my favorites are those that have already been mentioned: SEP, Rachel Gibson, and my newest obsession, Jill Shavis’s Santa Barbara Heat series!
