Day 3: 30+ Days of Christmas 2013


The winner of yesterday’s amazing group of prizes is Emily W! Yay! For today I have two of my favorite authors on board and we’ve got some great books for you!

My offering today is Hot Water, the second book in the Tales of the Darkworld series. This book is my sentimental favorite in this series. Colin Granville is an exceptional hero. Angst-free and in control of his life, Colin is a hot, nice-guy hero who will capture your attention and, if you’re not careful, your heart! This book also introduces Corey Green to readers. Corey is Colin’s assistant and is a lot of fun. His story is told later in the series in Sunstroked. The last reason this book is one of my favorites is because arrogant and meddling Sean Antaeus gets punched twice! Ow!

Joining me today in the giveaway are Lizzie T. Leaf and Selena Illyria. I’ve known them both for years and had the pleasure of spending some time with Lizzie at RT a couple of years ago. Both of them are awesome writers and I’m so happy to have them participate again this year. Now, let’s get to the books!

Black dragon Eden Antaeus is a bad girl. Or so her brother Sean would have her believe. When Sean tells Eden she’s the Queen of Kink, someone who can’t get off on normal sex, Eden runs straight to the vampire club Carpe Noctem to find someone to have vanilla sex with. What Eden finds is Colin Granville, her brother Declan’s new brother in law. Desire burns hot between them despite the lack of surnames and after one night together, they both want more. Getting past the discovery that their siblings are married, Colin teaches Eden that she’s not the Queen of Kink and Eden finds a love, and a life, she never expected to have.

Against her will, the Cailleach puts into play the magic to unite another pair of soul mates.

Loneliness drives Cori Sparks to chocolate. The fledging witch’s desolation also compels her to attempt using her emerging magic in the quest for love. Unsuccessful, she turns to a dating website and discovers what may be her perfect match.

Rob Vesha is tired of the money hungry women he meets. Given his gene pool he doesn’t think the real ‘him’ would excite them as much, but he can’t share enough to find out for sure. On impulse he turns to the internet and discovers Cori.

Can their love survive his family reunion in Transylvania?

Can a dragon shifter give more than just hot sex?

After Brent’s New Year’s fling with his friends Fletcher and Tor—and Tor’s mate Louisa—Brent is determined to find his own mate. His dragon wants him to find their mate, too, and if Brent doesn’t find a way to locate her soon, his dragon will take matters into his own talons. And that could spell trouble.

Wolf shifter Carissa has no desire to live up to her wild musician mother and artistic father’s vision of free love and sex parties. She’s buried her sexual desires and focused on building up her aromatherapy store, Scentify, no distractions allowed. Until she meets Brent. The sexy dragon shifter makes her burn with suppressed need. The only problem? His dragon wants Carissa, too. And pursuing the dominant dragon would be playing with fire.Giving in to his dragon saps Brent of his focus and energy. Things are turning ugly—dragon ugly.

How can he bond with his mate when his dragon only wants sex?

And that’s the line up for today. Here’s what to do to win: Leave a comment on this post between now and midnight Pacific time (3 am Eastern) tonight. If you’ve already read all three books you can still play! Just leave a comment and let us know what you thought of each book and I’ll put your name in a drawing for a secret prize!
