A Heartfelt Thank You to December Sponsors and a Giveaway

I wasn’t actually going to do this… but then I figured – oh why not? I did for previous months, and the book covers here are very pretty. Plus it’s the holidays, you know? So, here’s a feature for our lovely December friends, who help fund giveaways, inadvertently. 😉

Once a notorious rake, Camden Folk, Marquis of Warbury, is now consumed by desire for only one woman: beautiful young widow Frances Burdett. And the Yuletide festivities at his country estate present the perfect opportunity for seduction…

After her brief and unsatisfying marriage, Frances Burdett swore never to become tied to another man. Then a passionate kiss under the mistletoe reawakens longings she thought buried forever. But can she give in to the pleasures of the body with a rogue like Cam—without losing her heart?

Christmas Park is stuck in Seoul for the holidays when she should be flying home to Florida. Her parents break tradition and book a Carribean cruise, leaving her to seek a new holiday tradition. It’s Christmas Eve and “Rissa” finds herself in the spotlight—literally! Her plans to enjoy an uneventful, low-key night at the after-hours soju bar turns into a scheme for her co-workers to win the grand prize in a single’s kissing contest.

Nothing goes according to plan when Rissa is whisked away by the city’s notorious bad boy, Min Yoo, on an adventurous night around town. What they hadn’t expected was falling for the magic of the holidays—and each other—which all started with just a single kiss.

Warrior, bastard, outcast, traitor to his kind, these are all labels Lazar has worn for the past several years, since he took a stand against the actions of a mad king. He’s defended the Kingdom of the Hawks even though the blood of the Falcons runs through his veins. He’s bedded their women, drank their mead and protected their king. None of that makes him one of them. An empty pit has been in his stomach for years, believing his true mate perished long ago. When he learns she’s alive, he has to not only win her over, but also make her understand men who can shift into birds aren’t the things of nightmares. They’re real, and he’s one of them.

Sabrina lives a relatively sheltered life. Her overprotective uncle means well but can sometimes go too far. When he shows up with a sexy hunk she’s dreamed about, it’s all Sabrina can do to control her emotions. As old lies are uncovered, she has to decide if she should open her heart to a man who has made using women an art form and who also happens to have wings. Plus, he’s more than just any old shifter male. He’s the rightful king of the Falco, and it’s time he rose to his position and accepted his destiny, even if that destiny includes her.

WARNING: This book contains hot, explicit sex and violence, a dominant, alpha, bird-shifting male who has the rules of seduction memorized and who finally understands he has to take a stand for what he wants. It has a heroine who, while young, knows she won’t settle for anything less than she deserves and who finds herself being taught things that make her blush.

Speaking of a giveaway… Barbara Monajem has been a lovely mainstay at ALBTALBS, and I’d like to say thank you to her. And to share the love, so one lucky commenter will win her (or his!) choice of a kindle copy of one of Barbara’s Harlequin [Historical] Undone(s). What a mouthful, yes?

And, if you want more giveaways, check out the numerous ones here, for the charity water post. Give it a minute – there are so many prize widgets it takes some time to load.

My question to you is – have you ever checked out any of the books featured in the ads? Ever buy one? What’d you think? Or what do you think of the ads in general?

And, if that doesn’t interest you at all… how is all your holiday planning and shopping going?

Lastly – unrelatedly, and yes I’m making up words and in a big hurry – would you check “backdated” posts? There are some things I’d like to say, and I think I might use them to fill in spots that weren’t blogged. Like all that time I was absent in August etc, because I was spending all my time in the hospital. Would any of you see them? Or should I just not do that?

Xoxo to you all! <3

A Huge Thank you to ALBTALBS Spectacular September Sponsors

Hi friends! Thank you so much for not abandoning me! And the same to Barbara Monajem, Vanessa Kelly, and Kaily Hart too.

As you know, I’ve had a lot going on. There’s this term – maximum benefit – that basically means all the resources are used up. I equate that to my life recently. And also that I’m maxed out (in a not good way) on other things. Like… doctors and hospitals. But I don’t really want to talk about that now. I want to point out the beautiful book covers/ads that are in the sidebar this month, and to assure you all that I’m trying. I hope to get things posted, and back to running some what regularly.

And as usual, there are still open spots – especially as I’m looking to 2013, so if you or anyone is interested, please let me know!

Thank you all!

Thank You to Barbara Monajem, V.K. Sykes, and Amber Lin

Why? Because they’re the July ALBTALBS sponsors! (They were also the sponsors in June, which was a total shitshow, so that’s why I didn’t get a chance to write a similar post. My apologies!) Anyway… So much love to these authors!

I’ve got one spot open for August, and so on, so if anyone is interested, or knows someone who would be, please contact me! Thanks so much! (This means a better, faster blog as soon as I get the site move, and also, even more and better prizes and contests!)
