Undercover Bound ARC Contest
Sep

2008

(THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED – WINNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED VIA EMAIL – Thanks to everyone who entered here, at LJ, myspace and Maverick authors too!)

So today what should appear on my doorstep but bound ARCS of Undercover! Yay!! So verra pretty and I do love the cover so much.

A sexy debut exploring an erotic future universe of passion, danger, and deceit…

On the battleground or in the bedroom, one woman and two men fight for dominance in a bold, new, and excitingly different direction in erotica…

As a lieutenant of the Federation military, Sera Ayers is accustomed to giving orders, not taking them. Now she must obey the one man she can’t stand—and can’t stop thinking about.

With the enemy Imperialists gaining ground, a covert team is assembled by Ash Walker. Ten years before, Sera had lovingly submitted to Ash’s dominance in the bedroom. But when he was forced into a political marriage, she refused to play mistress. His marriage now over, Ash wants Sera on his team—and back in his bed.

The third team member, Brandt Pela, has an elegance to match Ash’s savage sexuality. And when their undercover plan requires Sera to pose as Brandt’s lover, it ignites a passion among the three of them more dangerous than their mission.

(You can read an excerpt at my website as well)

Anyhoodle – I’m going to be doing some contests to win them and I’ll do it in two contests so you’ll have more than one chance to win!

It’s relatively easy – This is an ARC contest for my first big NY release – my first single title and the intent of an ARC is to get readers and reviewers talking about the book – so essentially what I’m asking people to do is talk about the book – review it at your blog or at your reader group or review site between mid October up until December 2 when the book releases (not that you have to talk about it every day, LOL, but you’d have that window to find a time to pop your review up). I’d like for the winners to send me the link with their review and agree let me quote it here and at my website (with proper attribution, natch)

Anyone who’s entered one of my contests of his sort knows it’s not a requirement that you love the book! (although of course I’d prefer that, LOL).

THE RULES (please read carefully) All you need to do to enter is reply to this post and tell me where you’d be talking about the book if you win (urls are always helpful if you mean your blog!). I’ve got a limited amount of ARCS so I’ll choose winners based on my supply.

I’ll announce the winners by Noon September 24 – please include an email so I can notify you and get your mailing address!

Good luck!!

    Hi Lauren,

    Well I love, love your books! I don’t have a blog but several yahoo groups I belong to allow us to talk about anything & everything but most especially books. Also, when I can introduce you & your book where & when appropriate on other blogs, not a problem, already do. I love this type of book. Also, work from home so I am on the internet on & off throughout the day. So I spend ton of time online checking things out.

    P.S. I think Mad is already a step ahead & definitely deserves one as she has a nice big sign up on her blog & that’s what sent me straight over late tonight.

    Thank you for your consideration,
    Susan B.

    Hi Lauren!!

    I’m a new Lauren Dane fan and have LOVED everything I’ve read so far……looking forward to all the new stuff!!
    I’ll chat about the book at the 2 readers groups I belong to (writeminded and romance readers) and on my new blog! 🙂

    Well, i can talk about it on my blog, ajodonovan.wordpress.com and on the various sellers pages, ie B&N, Amazon.com/co.uk etc and of course on the biggest collective of romance readers/writers in the world (probably), the Romance Divas forum.

    …and if i beg really nicely on there i bet i could get another 10 people at least to either link to my review or just pimp it’s release. (that’s a lot more blogs it’ll be on)

    ….do you think i wanna win this or what? lol

    I have a blog called Talk About My Favorite Author that I start 9 months ago and I love reading and reviewing the romance books I’ve read. I’ve read and reviewed one ARC that I won and I loved it. I want another chance to review this book before it comes out.

    Lauren…I’d love to win an ARC of Undercover. I’ve loved everything I’ve read by you…well, okay, one or two were “really liked” and not “loved.”

    I don’t have a blog, but would review/talk about the book on
    Internet Book DB: http://www.ibookdb.net/
    Shelfari
    Amazon
    and…when e-version becomes available, on Books on Board

    Can’t wait to read it!

    Ooo, y’all need to get this book.

    Soooooooooo good! I had the distinct pleasure of reading this HAWT book. I’m a futuristic junkie, love them, and Lauren’s is grade A!

    Well I don’t think I can beat everyone else but I’d get my wife involved. She is an avid reader and is constantly telling her classes (more often than not now being asked by them) at college what they should read. She really should get comission because they’d gone out and bought those books every time. Not a one disappointed either. If I didn’t know better I’d say her classes are book clubs on the side. LOL. Send it to us and we’ll make sure a review goes out to her classes and all our book adoring friends/family! Can’t wait to read it.

    Hi Lauren,

    I’m seeing reviews about ‘Undercover’ everywhere with very good things said!! (~5 today) Thought you would like to know words being used “Must Read!!” “The Best!!!”

    I can’t wait!

    Lauren – congratulations on the upcoming release! I love the cover too, and the story premise sounds so interesting!
    I’d talk about the book at my book challenge blog – and also my blogger site, and other e-journal/blogs… and likely TGTBTU as well. 🙂

    Hi Lauren!
    Love the cover of your new book! If I won an ARC (fingers crossed big time!!) I would review it on GoodReads, Romantic Times reader reviews & make a post about it in one of the forums, Shelfari and Borders reader reviews…oh and of course it goes without saying that I’d tell all my reading group buddies about it 😀 Hope I win!!!!
