The Departed…Giveaway…

Winner to be posted shortly (upcoming week.)  At this time, the giveaways are now closed for comments.  thanks and be sure to check back to see if you were the winner!

So between now and the day THE DEPARTED releases, I’ll be collecting names.  If you see the words… DEPARTED and GIVEAWAY in the blog topic, then you can enter.  The prize?  A massive bag of books, swag and other sundry goodies.

The starting stack is…


While Taylor was impatient in the extreme and itching to get out there, he knew if that ghost didn’t find any sort of peace, she’d linger with Dez.


And that would torment her.


He couldn’t do that.


Not to her.


He tried to force up some semblance of the cold, hard shield he’d perfected so long ago—he didn’t have any sort of special interest in Dez Lincoln. He wouldn’t wish the unrest of an agitated ghost on any of his people; that was all. He needed them all at their best, all the time.


But even as he told himself that little line, he knew it for what it was.


Nothing but shit.


He most certainly had a special interest in Dez Lincoln. And he had from the very beginning.


Not that it mattered, though.


She was a member of his unit and that made her off-limits.


And even if that wasn’t an issue, Taylor Jones didn’t do relationships.

    (Side note- Any chance you can put the “send comment” button below the captcha? Could just be me, but I never scroll low enough to see the captcha, so I hit just send without entering it and my comments keep getting deleted.)

  2. A book I read over and over? Here are a few: Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott, Destination Unknown by Agatha Christie.

  3. here’s hoping your catcha lets me comment today.

    Only one book I re-read a lot? Gah!

    Okay, a book I read at least a couple of times each year is LaVyrle Spencer’s Morning Glory. I’ve also reread the first twelve or so of Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshooters novels several times now, as well as most of the In Death JDRobb series.

    I’ll stop there, I could go on and on, really.

    (I’ve The Departed on pre order)

  4. Hmm…I re-read lots of books! I have to because I’m such a fast reader. One of the books I read over and over is Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh. I can read all of her books again and again!

  5. I have read the Riley Jensen series over and over by Keri Aruther! Every time a new I’d reread the whole series!!! U keep writing Shiloh and i’ll keep buying! God Bless u and urs and Merry Christmas!!!

  6. I rarely reread, but I’m absolutely besotted with Patricia Briggs’ Alpha & Omega series. As a matter of fact I’m in the middle of my fifth or sixth reread right now.

  7. One book that I LOVE to read over and over is “Nauti Nights” by Lora Leigh!I just can’t get enough of Dawg!!! I love those big alpha males!!

  8. I’ve only read a couple books more than once and the only one worth mentioning is Kelley Armstrong’s BITTEN. It was my first paranormal an dI fell in love with the genre.
    I can’t wait for THE DEPARTED. Thank you.

  9. HI Shiloh,

    I am looking forward the The Departed release. The first book of yours I read was The Missing and I was hooked.

    I have read a few authors more than once.
    The Walker Papers series by C.E. Murphy three times, it just draws me in. Cathie Linz, Big Girls Don’t Cry, reminds me that plus size girls can have happy endings. Meg Benjamin’s Konigsberg series is sweet and Moira J. Moore’s Hero series is funny and smart and total fantasy.

  10. I love reading any books by L.A. Banks over and over again. I also love reading the Demonica series over and over again. As well as any book by Maya Banks.

  11. I read Pride and Prejudice every year on my birthday.
    I reread Lora Leigh’s Wild Card and my J.R. Ward collection.
    I actually reread almost every book, because with dyslexia it’s certain I missed something the first time.

  12. My favorite series is “The Hunters” and I have read the entire series 5 times or more over the past 3 years. Yes…it’s an obsession of mine. *smiles*

  13. I could read The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons or Up in Smoke by Katie MacAllister over and over 🙂

  14. The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. My favorite little book in the world. <3

  15. The Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning. Yes, the whole series, I’ve had to replace them already. 🙂

  16. Hi! Nice giveaway! One of the book I can read all over again and again it’s Beyond The Highland Mist by Karen Marie Moning! I really enjoy Kresley Cole series too!


  17. Until recently I’d never really reread books until I reread The Shadow series by Erin Kellison and The Alien/Kitty Katt series by Gini Koch… I can’t get enough of those books 🙂
    Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!

  18. I have re-read Three Fates by Nora Roberts over and over again! I love it so much 🙂 Thanks for a great contest!

  19. I read Karen Marie Moning’s Kiss of the Highlander and The Dark Highlander over and over. Love those MacKeltar twins!

  20. I reread all of Julie Garwood’s historicals over and over, especially “Saving Grace” and “The Lion’s Lady.”

  21. I reread the Nadia Stafford series by Kelley Armstrong so often! It only has two books (Exit Strategy and Made to Be Broken) because it’s not as popular as her other series, but I just love the characters, and the mystery is still interesing after having read it more than a couple times, but mostly I love the hints of romance between two of the main characters. Thanks!

  22. I re-read some of the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett and the Jeeves stories by P. G. Wodehouse. They always make me laugh.

  23. I’ve read all of the Hunters books at least twice, but the one that I keep going back to read again is Hunter’s Edge. Kel’s insistance on protecting Angel from the one person who would never hurt her, himself, really gets to me.

  24. I love rereading One foot in the grave by Jeaniene Frost, where Bones finally finds Cat. Thanks!

  25. Sorry gave you wrong email add. Kayko118(at)yahoo(dot)com. I love one foot in the grave by Jeaniene Frost.

  26. So many great books, but the most rereads probably goes to Harry Potter, since I would reread them all when a new one came out 🙂

  27. I tend not to reread because there are so many other books I want to read! I’ve read The Vampire Diaries and the Secret Circle by LJ Smith over. Also, I’ve reread Grimm’s Fairy Tales many times.

  28. I can’t really name a book I reread, because I don’t generally reread books. There are so many books I want to read, I don’t really have time to read books over again. The only book I can think of that I’ve reread is Lynn Kurland’s Stardust of Yesterday because I forgot I’d read it, and it was so good I kept reading it after I realized I’d read it before.

  29. I rarely reread whole books but there are a few that I reread passages. I have read selections from Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon, on many occasions.

  30. I’ve read Johanna Lindsey’s DEFY NOT THE HEART so many times the cover wants to fall off…but doesn’t cuz I’m really careful! 🙂

  31. I reread Maggie Shayne’s Born in Twilight whenever I get in a reading slump. I love the whole series, but that is my go to book.

  32. A book I have read over and over.. There are so many but one from my young adulthood that really started me reading paranormal romance books. Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

  33. My favorite book right now is…Preying for Mercy by Patricia Briggs….so good

  34. The book I think started it all for me, is Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. I have read that book over and over since 8th grade.

  35. there are several that I reread at least one a year since I read them the first time and they are
    Hunter Tori and Declan by you
    The Stand by Stephen King
    Brianna Celestial Passions by Judy Mays
    Pack Challenge by Shelly Laurenston.
    there are others but those four and always read at least one a year and sometimes I read more than the first one in those series.

  36. Tame My Wild Touch by Donna Fletcher or Saving Grace by Julie Garwood are the books I find myself going to most often. I am a rereader, so just about every book I own gets into the rotation at some point or another.

  37. I’ve read all Karen Marie Monings Fever and Highlander books over and over and over….

  38. There are a lot of books I read over & over. Some authors such as Lynsay Sands, Larissa Ione, & Kerrelyn Sparks I read multiple times.

  39. I have reread Broken by Megan Hart numerous times. It is such a complex story. I like to see the couple reach their HEA after going through so much turmoil.

  40. With so many wonderful books available I find I am not a big second time reader. I also usually pass the books on that I have read so they aren’t around to read a second time.

  41. I usually don’t read the books for second time. The only book I can remember that I have read many times is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  42. The book I read over and over this year was Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning. First off, it’s a beautiful hardback book! Gorgeous! Second, the story is amazing! There’s always one story that I go back to 3 or 4 times in a year…curious as to what it will be in 2012!

  43. my favorite book to reread is Brahm Stoker’s Dracula. i read it the first time in early 1980 because i had seen the movie in 1979. i can’t even tell you how many times i have read it since then. 🙂

  44. That would be the Hobit I fell in love with it as a kid and still pick it up to read

  45. The book I can read over and over again is Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
