(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 HELEN SCOTT TAYLOR on the blog!

Helen’s latest release is The Phoenix Charm:

He’s Pure Temptation.

Cordelia has sworn she’ll abstain from looking into Michael’s future—particularly when the image in the gilded smoke of her divination mirror shows him half naked. Yet she can’t resist watching the sexy rascal slowly running his hand down his ribs, over his abdomen, flicking open the button on his jeans with a little flourish like a magician performing a trick. 

She’s Trying To Resist.

Respectable wise woman Cordelia restrains her secret water nymph sensuality with the Celtic symbols painted on her skin. But Michael’s powerful fairy glamour leaves her breathless, off balance, struggling for control. When Gwyn ap Nudd, the Welsh King of the Underworld, steals away Michael’s infant nephew, Cordelia must work with him to save the child. But how can she trust her instincts with Michael tempting her to explore the hidden elemental depths of her nature and insisting that she believe in the power of…The Phoenix Charm.

    Don’t think Ive read anything with this type of story line before, so it got my interest! I did learn that The Phoenix Charm was the RT bookreviews book in January AND she graciously put up the first 2 chapters! Which I will be reading on break today 🙂

    I learned that the book is the second in the Magic Knot Fairies series and the cover is quite different compared to the first book, but I like the style more 🙂 both books are now on my wishlist – thanks for sharing!
    greetings, Ina

    Hi Nikki B, Hi Ina. Thanks to Elizabeth for featuring my book on the blog today. Lots of luck with Entwined. I’m certain it will be a huge hit like the rest of your wonderful stories.

    I learned that I don’t spend nearly enough time visiting Helen’s website :mrgreen: Did I know MAGIC KNOT was one of Booklist‘s Top Ten Romances for 2009 and forgot? Or did I never know that at all? Chances are I knew it and forgot. Fabulous seeing PHOENIX CHARM featured here, Helen! And look at you, guest appearing on the blog — yet one more thing on your awe-inspiring list of things you accomplish in a day. I am eternally envious!

    I went to the website and watched the trailer for the Phoenix Charm. I don’t usually watch trailers, but I thought this one did a great job of explaining the magical world of the book with the three characters (Fighter, Lover & Night Stalker) & their fight against the evil Druid to save their people. I also learned that this book is the second one in the Magic Knot Fairies series.

    I learned that it was about a water nymph. I don’t think I have read another story about a water nymph.
