Bloggers/Reviewers – Would you like to have an ARC of CAPTIVATED? CONTEST NOW CLOSED – WINNERS TO BE NOTIFIED

Well then – have I got an offer for you 🙂

Vincenz Fardelle, exiled son of the Supreme Leader of the Imperialist Universe, has spent much of the last ten years working to stop the threat his father poses. But he’s not alone in his quest. Julian Marsters has lost his best friend and countless others in the war and has made vengeance his only goal. In each other, Julian and Vincenz find not only like minds, but kindred spirits.

However unexpected their relationship, everything changes for Vincenz and Julian when Hannah Black comes into their lives. Having been captured and held in near total isolation by imperialist troops, their immediate response is to protect her.

Emotionally shattered but resilient, Hannah rebuilds herself. Because of the warm safety she finds in the arms of Julian and Vincenz she becomes someone harder, stronger and bent on preventing the Imperialists from harming anyone else.

For the two men, wrestling with their passionate feelings for Hannah is only the beginning. War is about to send all three into harm’s way and an equally dangerous secret could tear them apart.

I happen to have SIX bound galleys of CAPTIVATED for that very purpose.

What I need from you: Your blog or where you review and a commitment to review the book from two weeks from release right up to release day (May 5) This is an erotic romance, so you’ll need to be 18+. I’m not only looking for giant blogs, but a cross section of different places so please don’t hesitate to enter thinking it only matters if you have a jillion hits a day.

I’ll choose the winners on Sunday March 4th at 9 am pacific time.

(PS – if you don’t have a blog/aren’t a reviewer don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of other chances to win ARCs in the contest-palooza starting March 24!)

    Oh, yes, please! I just recently read and reviewed Mesmerized for JERR. It was wonderful. I was looking forward the Hannah, Vincenz, and Julian’s story before I finished Mesmerized.

    And I agree to your requirements. The review would be posted at Reader’s Edyn: and other sites such as Amazon.

    Would love to read and review on Goodreads. I’ve read the rest of this series and loved it. ARCs are great and I read them as soon as I get them. In 2011 I read 175 books and tend to be a bit picky about what I read; this series definitely fits into my reading profile. I already have it on my Pre-Order wishlist.
