The Spies and Prejudice Giveaway!

We are happy to be giving away and Advanced Reader Copy of Talia Vance's SPIES AND PREJUDICE to one of our readers!

Pride & Prejudice meets Veronica Mars in this slick romantic spy-thriller where nothing’s as it seems.

Berry Fields is not looking for a boyfriend. She's busy trailing cheaters and liars in her job as a private investigator, collecting evidence of the affairs she's sure all men commit. And thanks to a pepper spray incident during an eighth grade game of spin the bottle, the guys at her school are not exactly lining up to date her, either. 

So when arrogant—and gorgeous—Tanner Halston rolls into town and calls her "nothing amazing," it's no loss for Berry. She'll forget him in no time. She's more concerned with the questions surfacing about her mother's death.
But why does Tanner seem to pop up everywhere in her investigation, always getting in her way? Is he trying to stop her from discovering the truth, or protecting her from an unknown threat? And why can't Berry remember to hate him when he looks into her eyes?

With a playful nod to Jane Austen, Spies and Prejudice will captivate readers as love and espionage collide.

The contest starts NOW, with the winner announced Monday, April 29th.  To be entered, simply go our comments and tell us the name of a PI/sleuth from fiction or film that you enjoy.  Good luck!

The Rose Throne--the Giveaway!

We were lucky to get an Advanced Reader Copy of Mette Ivie Harrison's THE ROSE THRONE.

Ailsbet loves nothing more than music; tall and red-haired, she's impatient with the artifice and ceremony of her father's court. Marissa adores the world of her island home and feels she has much to offer when she finally inherits the throne from her wise, good-tempered father. The trouble is that neither princess has the power--or the magic--to rule alone, and if the kingdoms can be united, which princess will end up ruling the joint land? For both, the only goal would seem to be a strategic marriage to a man who can bring his own brand of power to the throne. But will either girl be able to marry for love? And can either of these two princesses, rivals though they have never met, afford to let the other live?

Aimed at readers 12 years and up, THE ROSE THRONE received this praise from author Orson Scott Card: 

"A story of two young women born to dangerous, powerful families...But they each have powers of their own, and terrible choices. Another great story from one of my favorite authors."

The giveaway starts NOW, with the winner being announced on Monday morning, April 15th.  To be entered, simply go the comments and suggest another name of a flower (for an alleged sequel)?  Best of luck, and good luck to all who enter!
