Giveaway Alert - December Competition

This month we're running a competition for anyone who joins a Royal Reviews Challenge before 1st January 2009. Every challenge you enter and sign up with (using Mr. Linky on the challenge post page) will gain you one entry. Here's a list of the 10 challenges you can enter with us in 2010:

- 1st in a Series Challenge
- The 2nd Challenge
- Audiobook Challenge
- EBook Challenge
- Fantasy Challenge
- Finish that Series Challenge
- Wish I'd Read That Challenge
- Historical Fiction Challenge
- Romance Challenge
- Winter Challenge

The lucky winner will have the option of choosing from one of the following books:


The Endless Forest by Sara Donati

The final novel in Sara Donati's 'Into the Wilderness' Series. Readers of Diana Gabaldon will appreciate Donati's attention and the romance-centric plot of these epic historical novels. Set in the American Frontier during the early 1800's, this highly-anticipated novel is set to be an explosive end to an incredible series.
Recommended for the Finish that Series Challenge or the Historical Fiction Challenge



Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts
Nora Roberts is the modern day maestro of romance and at least 3 of the Royal Reviewers have fallen head-over-heels for her Bride Quartet series. Bed of Roses is the 2nd novel in the series and a wonderful, feel-good tale. This series can only be likened to a really good chick flick. If you're looking for something modern and light-hearted to give you that typical romance novel high then this is a great choice.
Recommended for the Romance Challenge or The 2nd Challenge

A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris (Audiobook or Kindle Version)
If you're a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series then you can't miss this collection of Sookie short stories starring Sookie herself and a slew of your other favourite characters. If you pick this novel, then you can choose to have it in Audio or EBook format. If you haven't listened to any of these on audio then you'll be in for a real treat - the voice actress is simply superb!
Recommended for the Audiobook Challenge or the EBook Challenge

Soulless by Gail Carriger
This novel has received plenty of good buzz in blog land but my favourite description of it so far is: 'Buffy meets Jane Austen in this wickedly funny debut novel.' Soulless is a brand of fantasy known as steam-punk - which in my understanding is pretty much a fantasy twist on the Victorian Era. In the case of Soulless, the author has created a Victorian world full of tea-drinking, manners, parasols, vampires and werewolves. If you're looking for a fantasy novel that's a little bit different and a whole-lot fun then join the throng of fans of this debut author.
