August Giveaway - An Echo in the Bone OR Covet

An Echo in the Bone (Outlander, #7) Covet (Fallen Angels, #1)

This month's competition will allow you to choose between two very hot new releases - An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon or Covet By J.R. Ward. We're so excited about both of these books and are exstatic to be able to give them away!

Here's a little about both of these novels to help you choose!

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon (Release Date 22/09/09)

Fans of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series have waited four years for the next installment in the life of Claire and Jamie. This month, we're giving you the chance to win a pre-order copy of An Echo in the Bone. You won't receive the book any earlier than the scheduled release date but what a treat to know you'll have it as soon as it's released.

Jamie Fraser, erstwhile Jacobite and reluctant rebel, knows three things about the American rebellion: the Americans will win, unlikely as that seems in 1778; being on the winning side is no guarantee of survival; and he'd rather die than face his illegitimate son - a young lieutenant in the British Army - across the barrel of a gun. Fraser's time-travelling wife, Claire, also knows a couple of things: that the Americans will win, but that the ultimate price of victory is a mystery. What she does believe is that the price won't include Jamie's life or happiness - not if she has anything to say.

Claire's grown daughter Brianna, and her husband, Roger, watch the unfolding of Brianna's parents' history - a past that may be sneaking up behind their own family.

Covet by J.R. Ward (1st Novel in the Fallen Angel's Series)

J.R. Ward is the bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series and is famous for her dark, sexy paranormal romances. This debut novel in her new Fallen Angel's series is highly anticpated! It's release date is 1st September 2009 so the winner who chooses this novel will receive it fairly close to that date.

Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about--his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that--until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior. But then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart--and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.

Here's how to enter:


1. Competition is only open to followers of this blog only. So if you're not a follower then just click on the follow button in the column on the right. Don't forget to leave a comment and tell me which book you'd like to win.

2. For an extra entry post about this give-away on your blog.

3. You must leave your email address in the comments section. This competition is International and will be drawn on August 31st and the winner will be announced on this blog.

Princess of the Past
Each month the give away is purchased by the Queen of Happy Endings, the Empress of Good & Evil or the Princess of the Past. This month's book will be purchased by Annie the Princess of the Past. Occassionally we have an author or publisher offer a give away, in which case we will mention them on the competition post.
