And the last batch…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!

Last round…(FYI, the winner must check back to claim the prize-if you think you might forget, try setting up a google alert. It’s easy, I promise…) Also, because I’ve been emailed/asked… all entries made be made via the comments section of the blog.  Not thru email/Goodreads, etc.

Also included, but not shown…some random swag, bookmarks, pens, trading cards, etc.


Say something, he thought. Stop her, damn it. His mind was a raw, ragged wound and today, of all days—shit, today, yesterday, it was the worst possible time for him to be trying to think of something coherent to say to anybody. Especially the person who mattered to him the most. Dez.

But he had to say something. He just didn’t know what. Didn’t know what to think. His mind went blank. Words, the easy glib lines he could always hand out whenever he needed to do whatever he needed to do—they failed him. He needed to talk, needed to say something, but he couldn’t.

He had to do something, though, and he had to do it fast, because if he let her leave this time, he wasn’t going to have a chance in hell of getting her. Keeping her. And he was finally starting to realize that was exactly what he needed to do—what he wanted, what he absolutely must have.

Otherwise, he was going to turn into one of those shadows that haunted her. Maybe a living, breathing one, but everything that made him live would be gone.

  9. Haven’t found too many authors whose work I non-conditionally love, but have found several with individual books/series that I adore. Jordan Castillo Price’s PsyCop- OMG! Laura Griffin is good romatic suspense. Have also read tons of mysteries- Lori Armstrong (aka Lorelei James), Julia Spencer-Fleming, and Dana Stabenow. And, rediscovered how much I love Katie Allen, who has written some of my favorite contemporaries ever.

  10. OH Thea is fabulous. I honestly just found Sophie Jordan’s romance line and loved it. I have been reading Firelight and looked her up and found a whole new realm of rakes out there.

  19. gah

    I just worked ten hours straight–yes, I started before 5AM–and have no brain cells left. I’m sure there ARE new-to-me authors for 2011 somewhere in my brain, they are just not coming out.

    Does this count as an entry? If not…well, I tried. Sowwwy!

  20. I read alot so it’s hard to pinpoint new authors!! I rediscovered Cherry Adair this year, as well as Diane Whiteside, Cherie Priest and JT Ellison.

    I continue to enjoy Shiloh Walker (of course). Shannon Butcher, Stephanie Tyler, and Kelly Armstrong.

  21. I discovered Inez Kelley in 2011. I’ve read several of her stories but Sweet as Sin is my favorite.

  22. Thea Harrison, Jenn Bennett, and Maria V. Snyder were all new to me authors in 2011.

  23. I discovered Eileen Clark and would recommend her books to romantic suspense fans.

  24. I discovered Darynda Jones,Keri Arthur,Elisabeth Naughton & Laura Wright in 2011. Great authors!

  25. I discovered Shiloh Walker, Roxanne St. Claire, and Jill Shalvis just to name a few.

  26. There have been many new to me authors that I have read in 2011 and really enjoyed. If I had to pick just one though, it would be CL Wilson and her Tairen Soul series.

  27. Thea Harrison would definitaly be one (I’ve loved all of here books I’ve read)also the other would be Sharon Lee and Steve Miller and I guess this would be rediscovered.

  28. Virna DePaul and Thea Harrison both great authors. I met Virna at Lori Foster’s gettogether.

  29. Lara Adrian. I started with the latest book in her series. Which I never do.. I never read out of order. And immediately had to get the rest and read them. I am really looking forward to trying Thea Harrison, Ive read so many great things about her books.

  30. I’ve discovered a lot of new authors this year. My favorites are Nichelle Gregory, Sable Hunter, Jen Leblance, and Missy Martine.

  31. I discovered Jaye Wells and her Sabina kane series and Steven Hockensmith- i love reading Miss Elizabeth Benett turning into a zombie killing warrior ! Cool!

  32. My new author would be Dani Harper, Melissa Schroeder,Lara Adrian, and Dakota Cassidy.

  33. Larissa Ione. Found one her books (Eternal Rider) at the library and I have been hooked ever since!

  34. Mine would be Thea Harrison as well. I’ve listened to Dragon Bound, Storm’s Heart and Serpent’s Kiss on audio and have loved them all. Sophie Eastlake is a great narrator and that has made the experience that much more enjoyable.

  35. I’ve recently discovered Eve Langlais and (honestly I’m not sucking up here) Shiloh Walker. Their styles are different and I find myself quickly drawn into their stories.

  36. The best new author I found in 2011 was Michael R Hicks. He writes an awesome series called In Her Name.

  37. In 2011 I found book blogs which exposed me to a lot of new writers and I found Stacey Kennedy, Michelle Hauf, Nalini Singh and Meljean Brook. It was a wonderful reading year! I’m hoping I find many more in 2012!

  38. My favorite new author of 2011 is a YA author I found on LibraryThing. Melissa Conway has a real gift. I read 3 of her books last year.
