New contest — Winner’s Choice

Ok, I have never had more than three people enter any one of my contests, and I have really enjoyed sending off my books to fellow romance lovers, so to increase participation, I’m offering the winner a choice of any one of these three books, all of which I have reviewed (see the list of reviews on the sidebar for links).

To enter, make a comment indicating which book you would choose if you won, and why, or post a link to the contest on your own blog. Do both, and you are entered twice.

Be warned: while these are in excellent condition (I am one of those people who cannot stand to break the spine) I did fold over several pages.

Enter by midnight eastern standard time on Wednesday, and I’ll use random.org to pick a winner.  More info here.

Review: Seduce Me At Sunrise, Lisa Kleypas

Cover Comment: Luscious, and the models in the stepback are perfect

Series?: Yes. This is the second of the Hathaway series, the first of which was Cam’s story, Mine til Midnight, and the next installment is (I think) Poppy’s story, followed by Leo’s.

Heroine and Hero: She’s Win Hathaway, serene virginal young woman, newly recovered from a dread illness, hopelessly in love with Kev Merripen, orphaned Rom gypsy who came to live with the Hathaways after a horrendous and violent childhood, leaving him more beast than man, but man enough to be hopelessly in love right back with Win.

Distinctive feature: Requited love from page 1. Name another romance that has that! Oh, and the heroine is described as a “fastidious little cannibal” during one of the love scenes.
