We’re winding down. Four more days of authors, fun and prizes. Be sure to check back on release day – Tuesday, July 27th. I’ve got some special treats in store for my readers!! Now on to day 12…

(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:

First up is Marie-Claude Bourque!

Marie-Claude’s latest book is ANCIENT WHISPERS:

ok. Gabriel is the youngest member of the Priory of Callan—an ancient Celtic brotherhood of cursed sorcerers and alchemists, each with deadly abilities and each haunted by a tragic past. Tortured by the devastating loss of his fiancée in 1755, Gabriel wants nothing more than to reunite with his soul mate.

Two and a half centuries later, Gabriel is still searching for his love. And then he finds Lily Bellefontaine. Cool-headed and practical, she has no memory of Gabriel. But she also can’t deny the pull of attraction drawing her under his seductive spell, urging her to give in to the…

Next up is the fantabulous Donna Grant!

Donna’s latest release is FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDER:


Fallon MacLeod has gifts any warrior would covet – fierce strength, unmatched skill, even immortality. But those gifts come at a price that puts everyone he loves at risk. Only when his brother, Quinn, is taken captive does Fallon leave the seclusion of his Highland home to seek the king’s aid. And though every women at court would gladly be his for the asking, one alone causes desire to roar to life within him: beautiful, mysterious Larena Monroe.


Rumors swirl around the castle about “The McLeod” but Larena knows the truth. Like Fallon, Larena is searching for a way to vanquish the evil Druid who wants to wreak havoc on earth. Drawn to Fallon in spite of her fear, she surrenders to a passion that shocks them both with its raw intensity. But Larena dares not hope for more – not when she holds a secret that could turn her fiery Highland love against her forever…

    Congrats to Marie-Claude and Donna on their recent releases. I would love to travel back in time to Ancient Egypt to experience the political intrigue and experience the culture.

    Ancient Egypt for me, too! I have always loved to read about Ancient Egypt. My first book was on Hatshepsut’s life.

    I think I would want to go back to the London Recengy period. I’ve been reading too many Kleypas and Quinn books for my own good lately. 😀

    I think I would pick the 1930’s. Sure it was a dangerous time but seems so exciting as well.

    I’d go back in time to ancient China if it weren’t quite so…oppressive for a woman to be there. Mmmm, medieval Scotland has always fascinated me!

    I would travel to the time of building Stonehenge and see how it was designed and built and who lived in the area.
