(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:
PART ONE :
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 is another Two-Fer:
First up is Michelle M. Pillow!
Michelle’s latest release is ANIMAL INSTINCTS:
Eve Matthews, head veterinarian at Jameson Wildlife Rescue and Preserve, measures success by no one’s rules but her own—much to her rich parents’ distress. A life filled with animals means she’s rarely alone. Still, a little human contact of the male variety would be nice.
The only one in her life right now is Midnight, a black panther she brought back from the brink of death. She doesn’t think twice about bringing him home to keep an eye on him. Changing clothes in front of his golden eyes. Confessing her deepest fantasies to his alert ears. It’s not as if he’ll ever tell anyone her secrets.
Forced to watch her every move, listen to her every word, Viktor is in torment, trapped in panther form while he heals. He aches to fill her nights with the pleasure she craves, but to shift too soon risks death. Until the night she pleasures herself, and he can take no more.
They come together in a cataclysm too fierce to be a dream. But the shifter who left Viktor for dead is drawing near, determined to finish the job he started.
And next up is Anthea Lawson!
Anthea Lawson – You do what with your husband?
It’s unusual, certainly, and challenging. People give us funny looks when we tell them, then blink and say things like “And you’re still happily married? I would have murdered my spouse if we tried that.”
No, it’s not an extreme sport or something kinky. Are you sure you really want to know? All right, brace yourselves.
We co-author historical romances together.
That’s right, we’re a husband-wife romance-writing team. Hey, there are lots of married co-authors out there! We know of at least, er… two besides us.
We didn’t plan on writing together, but like many projects that one of us starts, the other gives it a look and says “hmm, that seems interesting.” The journey has certainly been more than interesting – it’s been exciting, sometimes challenging, and full of discovery. Writing romance helps keep our own relationship strong by reminding us that our connection to others, especially our mates, is one of the most important things there is.
Our spicy Victorian-set romances feature strong heroines, a dash of exotic locale, and, of course, strong and sexy heroes. Check out our RITA-nominated debut novel PASSIONATE here, and visit us at http://www.anthealawson.com to find out more about us and our writing.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done (or almost done) with your significant other?
(To be entered into today’s drawing, answer Anthea’s question above. Two authors, two winners, two prizes!)
