Since I joined Twitter I have discovered many great people in the online bookcommunity: readers, authors, reviewers, editors, publishers. They are all helpful, friendly and amazing sources of information. For me it’s the best way to keep up with many developments in the romance reading world and the quickest way to stay up-to-date. Another added perk to Twitter is the easy and very direct access to contests held by authors, reviewer and readers. Since joining I’ve won quite a few books (both ebooks and print) either via Twitter or via blogs/websites.
The list of what I’ve won so far is as follows:
- Sweet Persuasion by Maya Banks
- Atlantis Unleashed by Alyssa Day*
- Darkness Calls by Marjorie M. Liu
- Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre
- Miss Firecracker by Lorelei James
- Silent Blade by Ilona Andrews
- Stolen Fury by Elisabeth Naughton
- Taming Eliza Jane by Shannon Stacey
- How to Tame a Modern Rogue by Diana Holquist
- Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks
I decided a while back that wanted to highlight the reviews of the books I won and not just let them drown in the sea of many reviews that reside her on my blog. The reviews of each won book will be featured in a Wednesday Winner review post, on a Wednesday of course :D
The Kick-Off on Wednesday August 12th is:
She’s the match, he’s the fuse…an explosive combination
One year ago Willow Gregory entered the Miss Firecracker contest on a dare—and ended up with the crown. As a working carpenter, she’s not exactly the tears-and-tiara type, and after a year of walking the straight and narrow she’s ready to cut loose. Waking up in a sexy stranger’s bed with no memory of the havoc she wreaked the night before wasn’t quite what she had in mind. Nor was agreeing to his mandate—work for him at the tavern until she repays the damage. Or go to jail.
Blake West thinks he could possibly be the only man alive who could say no to a drunken, horny, naked beauty queen. There’s something about the former Miss Firecracker that makes him want to blow his Mr. Nice Guy persona all to hell. It helps that Willow is ready to dive headfirst into a no-heartstrings-attached affair. Which fits in perfectly with Blake’s temporary gig managing his friend’s bar. Every grinding kiss, every stolen touch leads to another…until a harmless little white lie becomes the detonator that could explode their chances at a happily ever after.
Warning: This light-hearted beach read features a hero hotter than the 4th of July and a feisty heroine who knows exactly how to pop his top.
Technically I didn’t win this one via Twitter but via a Yahoo loop. But since I needed a review of a won book to get this thing going I picked this one.
Have fun and hope you regularly check by blog on Wednesdays!
