Goddess With A Blade Contest Week Begins!! CONTEST NOW CLOSED

It’s going to be a busy summer and fall – On June 6th, GODDESS WITH A BLADE will release from Carina Press – GWAB is UF with a romantic storyline between my protagonist Rowan Summerwaite and the Vampire Scion Clive Stewart.

Rowan Summerwaite is no ordinary woman. Physical vessel to the Celtic Goddess Brigid and raised by the leader of the Vampire Nation, she’s a supercharged hunter with the power to slay any vampire who violates the age-old treaty.

A recent string of murders has her at odds with Las Vegas’s new Scion, the arrogant and powerful Clive Stewart. The killings have the mark of Vampire all over them, and Rowan warns Clive to keep his people in lineβ€”or she’ll mete out her own brand of justice.

Though her dealings with Clive are adversarial to say the least, Rowan is intensely aware of her attraction to him. But she can’t let it distract her from her dutyβ€”to find and battle the killer before more women die.

So I figure hey why not give away some books to celebrate?

In other words, I’m going to run a contest until June 6. Every day I’ll do a contest and on June 5th I’ll announce the grand prize winner. Daily contests will state the rules for entry. Winners are responsible for coming back to look to see if they’ve won and to claim their prizes within seven days. Grand prize winner will be drawn from all the comments on all the daily posts and announced on Sunday June 5, 2011.

Some of the daily contest prizes:
Signed copies of – Inside Out, Mesmerized, Three To Tango
Some of my favorite urban fantasy books: Bitten, Kitty and the Midnight Hour, Moon Called and Ill Wind

The Grand Prize: Digital copy of GODDESS WITH A BLADE, Revelation in trade paper (not out until July!) or digital, Trinity, Brown Siblings – Laid Bare, Coming Undone and Inside Out) and a digital ARC of ONCE AND AGAIN, the next book set in Petal!

    My favorite kind of supernatural being to read about is all of the actually. I like the variety that authors use. I enjoy the vampires and demons the most.

    Really, really hard to choose… toss up between vamps and shifters (wolves, cats). Every time I think one beats out the other I remember a story that reminds me why I love the other being more… and so it continues.

    I prefer vampires over all but I won’t say no to shifters either. Just a good solid story will make me happy.

    Lauren, I love your Brown Siblings and Federation series. Up until February, I had worked at a bookstore for almost 11 years, and your books have been frequent searches for me in recent years…..I was always looking for your next book to add to my erotica collection. As soon as I would spot a new title, I had my copy pre-ordered in thrilled anticipation of a great read……one that pretty well guaranteed that my hubby would get really lucky for days until I finished the last punctuation mark of the story. I am so excited that you have new titles coming out for the two series that I crave, but I’m very much looking forward to reading these new series also. BTW, whoever did the cover for Heart of Darkness did a wonderful likeness of you. And, kudos for the usage of Conrad’s title….one of my favorite reads. Keep up the wonderful work that keeps me up late doing what I most love to do……..reading.
