An Embarrassment of Riches: Massive Avon Books Birthday Bash Giveaway

Hi friends! The birthday approaches!!! … I wish I had a week to just sleep. Instead I’m reading like crazy and only getting two hours of sleep a night and stumbling around which we all know is especially not great for me right now. XD

So – I hope I get this all right! This giveaway will have two – count them TWO winners, who will each win nine books. … I know. It’s fucking crazy – and AWESOME!!!

What, Lime, are the books you ask? Well. Let me tell you!!! You’ll be getting sets of print books from Ilona Andrews, Lisa Kleypas, and Sarah MacLean.


Ilona Andrews launches a brand-new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire . . . Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile situation. Nevada isn't sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire. Then she's kidnapped by Connor

*Pst the kindle version of Burn For Me is currently on sale for $2.99

The Hidden Legacy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews continues as Nevada and Rogan navigate a world where magic is the norm…and their relationship burns hot Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she's used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor

From Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author, the thrilling conclusion to her Hidden Legacy series, as Nevada and Rogan grapple with a power beyond even their imagination… Nevada Baylor can’t decide which is more frustrating—harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor “Mad” Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she’s become a crucial player—and sometimes a pawn—but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared, and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin. Rogan faces his own challenges, too, as Nevada’s magical rank has made her a desirable match for other Primes. Controlling his immense powers is child’s play next to controlling his conflicting emotions. And now he and Nevada are confronted by a new threat within her own family. Can they face this together? Or is their world about to go up in smoke?

Wildfire will be out July 25, 2017, but you could get it early!

A twist of fate . . . Devon Ravenel, London's most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's own. A clash of wills . . . Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains: Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known?

A ruthless tycoon Savage ambition has brought common-born Rhys Winterborne vast wealth and success. In business and beyond, Rhys gets exactly what he wants. And from the moment he meets the shy, aristocratic Lady Helen Ravenel, he is determined to possess her. If he must take her virtue to ensure she marries him, so much the better . . . A sheltered beauty Helen has had little contact with the glittering, cynical world of London society. Yet Rhys’s determined seduction awakens an intense mutual passion. Helen’s gentle upbringing belies a stubborn conviction that only she can tame her unruly husband. As Rhys’s enemies conspire against them, Helen must trust him with her darkest secret. The risks are unthinkable . . . the reward, a lifetime of incomparable bliss. And it all begins with… Marrying Winterborne

New York Times bestselling author LISA KLEYPAS delivers the unforgettable tale of a strong-willed beauty who encounters her match in one of London’s most notorious—yet irresistible—rakes . . . An eccentric wallflower . . . Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she’s ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger. A cynical rake . . . After years of evading marital traps with ease, Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, has finally been caught by a rebellious girl who couldn’t be less suitable. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain. A perilous plot . . . After succumbing to Gabriel’s skilled and sensuous persuasion, Pandora agrees to become his bride. But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe. As Gabriel protects her from their unknown adversaries, they realize their devil’s bargain may just turn out to be a match made in heaven . . .

Lady Sophie’s Society Splash When Sophie, the least interesting of the Talbot sisters, lands her philandering brother-in-law backside-first in a goldfish pond in front of all society, she becomes the target of very public aristocratic scorn. Her only choice is to flee London, vowing to start a new life far from the aristocracy. Unfortunately, the carriage in which she stows away isn’t saving her from ruin . . . it’s filled with it. Rogue’s Reign of Ravishment! Kingscote, “King,” the Marquess of Eversley, has never met a woman he couldn’t charm, resulting in a reputation far worse than the truth, a general sense that he’s more pretty face than proper gentleman, and an irate summons home to the Scottish border. When King discovers stowaway Sophie, however, the journey becomes anything but boring. War? Or More? He thinks she’s trying to trick him into marriage. She wouldn’t have him if he were the last man on earth. But carriages bring close quarters, dark secrets, and unbearable temptation, making opposites altogether too attractive . . .

Lonesome Lily turned Scandalous Siren Miss Lillian Hargrove has lived much of her life alone in a gilded cage, longing for love and companionship. When an artist offers her pretty promises and begs her to pose for a scandalous portrait, Lily doesn’t hesitate . . . until the lying libertine leaves her in disgrace. With the painting now public, Lily has no choice but to turn to the one man who might save her from ruin. Highland Devil turned Halfhearted Duke The Duke of Warnick loathes all things English, none more so than the aristocracy. It does not matter that the imposing Scotsman has inherited one of the most venerable dukedoms in Britain—he wants nothing to do with it, especially when he discovers that the unwanted title comes with a troublesome ward, one who is far too old and far too beautiful to be his problem. Tartan Comes to Town Warnick arrives in London with a single goal: get the chit married and see her become someone else’s problem, then return to a normal, quiet life in Scotland. It’s the perfect plan, until Lily declares she’ll only marry for love . . . and the Scot finds that there is one thing in England he likes far too much . . .

The one woman he will never forget… Malcolm Bevingstoke, Duke of Haven, has lived the last three years in self-imposed solitude, paying the price for a mistake he can never reverse and a love he lost forever. The dukedom does not wait, however, and Haven requires an heir, which means he must find himself a wife by summer’s end. There is only one problem—he already has one. The one man she will never forgive… After years in exile, Seraphina, Duchess of Haven, returns to London with a single goal—to reclaim the life she left and find happiness, unencumbered by the man who broke her heart. Haven offers her a deal; Sera can have her freedom, just as soon as she finds her replacement…which requires her to spend the summer in close quarters with the husband she does not want, but somehow cannot resist. A love that neither can deny… The duke has a single summer to woo his wife and convince her that, despite their broken past, he can give her forever, making every day THE DAY OF THE DUCHESS

    Birthday wishes coming your way Lime! I read too many Avon books to name one favorite, but I can say that my most recent 5 star read from them was Lady Claire is All That by Maya Rodale.

  2. Aemelia

    Something fun about birthdays? I guess just having one every year is fun! It sure beats the alternative. 😉 Really though, I’m thankful I have awesome friends that make sure my day shines.

    Favorite Avon author…that’s just so hard, there isn’t just ONE. 🙂 I will say that the best book I recently read was Sarah MacLean’s most recent book, THE DAY OF THE DUCHESS.

  3. Shelly Bagchi

    Lisa Kleypas was one of the first romance authors I read – my high school librarians had a “honor section” where we could borrow romance novels that weren’t in the library database. That’s how I fell in love with historical romances!
    Something about birthdays – it’s nowhere near mine, but I recently had a dream that a high school friend threw me a birthday party…in the food court of the mall near where I grew up. I guess I’m having all the high school flashbacks these days.

  4. Di

    My favorite Avon romance is either 1) A Rogue Not Taken by Sarah Maclean or 2) Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews. So this giveaway is perfect for me!

  5. Lisa Brown

    I find it interesting that some people give themselves a birthday party, make the cake, etc., instead of someone else give them the birthday party. I have never given myself a birthday party 🙂

  6. NR Lines

    My birthday is on Pi Day so every year I either buy or make a pie instead of birthday cake. Everything is better with pie!

    I have too many favorite Avon authors to just choose one, but Lisa Kleypas has a special place in my heart. Back in the days when everyone was in AIM, I would chat with Lisa. She even offered to read the first few pages of a book I was writing at the time. She didn’t know me, but she took the time to interact with a fan and to talk writing with a virtual stranger. I’ve been a loyal reader ever since.

  7. Aarati

    One special birthday memory for me was when I became a naturalized citizen on my birthday. Also, my favorite Avon author is Tessa Dare!

  8. JenM

    The funnest thing about my birthday is that I share it with my Dad! We always joke that it’s the one birthday that neither one of us can forget. This year, I’m really looking forward to it because it’s the day that Wildfire releases. My plan for the day is pretty much to curl up with my Kindle and read it. However, I’d be absolutely thrilled to win a copy earlier.

    As for my favorite Avon author, it’s definitely Ilona Andrews, although there are plenty of others that I like.

  9. Francesca

    Ooohh what a fabulous giveaway! I adore Sarah Maclean and Eloisa James and Tessa Dare! As for birthdays… mine is on the Fourth of July so there are always fireworks!

  10. flchen1

    What a lovely selection of books to celebrate with! Some favorite Avon authors for me are Loretta Chase, Jennifer Bernard, and of course, Lisa Kleypas and Julia Quinn…

    Hoping you’re finding ways to celebrate yourself this month because you are indeed quite fabulous, and may each year give you more reasons to believe that truth, Limecello!

  11. Imp

    My favorite birthday memory has to be the time I went on a cruise! 😉 There’s nothing better than drinking a martini and soaking the sun’s rays.

  12. Aliquis

    Happy belated birthday, Lime!
    My favorite Avon author is Lisa Kleypas!!! <3
    (Don't enter me in this giveaway though, thank you!)

  13. Amara Royce

    It’s sooo hard to pick a favorite Avon author. I can easily pick a favorite birthday memory, though—the year, hubby proposed to me on my birthday! It was around Thanksgiving so we were at his childhood home, in his old room even, and he got down on one knee under the pretense of getting g my birthday gift from under the bed! I had NO.CLUE!

    Happy belated birthday, Lime!!! Hope this year is a zillion times better than the last one! ❤️

  14. maren

    An interesting birthday tidbit? My Mother-in-law and I have the same birthday and she turned 40 the day I turned 21. I can usually come up with her age more quickly than my husband (her son) can!

  15. Suelder

    I was just thinking of you this afternoon, hoping that you’re recovering from your surgery.

    And Happy Birthday! I always share one with my sister – we’re twins. So there’s always one person who remembers to call me for my birthday 😉

    As for my favorite Avon author, it’s definitely Ilona Andrews. I try to schedule a day off for the day any new book of theirs comes out – otherwise I stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning.

    Best of everything and I hope that this year brings you only good things.

  16. Carla

    My favorite birthday memory is every year for each of my 3 boys birthdays, it’s all about them. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and all activities are all their choosing.
    My weirdest birthday memory is when I was 5, my mom told me that my birthday was really a day to celebrate her. If she hasn’t given birth to me I’d never be alive and that I should really give her appreciation gifts on my birthday. It takes all kinds.

  17. Holly

    Happy Birthday, Lime!

    I have spent way too much time overthinking my faves. Tessa Dare is another awesome Avon author. Kleypas, Andrews, and Maclean are also faves. And choosing a favourite book? I’m going to go with Kleypas because I’ve been reading hers the longest and I think the Avon book I’ve re-read the most is actually Devil in Winter. Might be Loretta Chase’s Lord of Scoundrels.

  18. J

    One of my favorite birthday memories is from when I was little. Around the time of my birthday each year, there is a book festival in my hometown. One year, when I was probably turning 6 or 7, the author of some of my favorite series came to town and autographed my copies!
    As for Avon authors, I like Ilona Andrews a lot.

  19. Useful Spinster

    I think my favorite birthday present happened when I turned 17. My mom would usually give me a small gift included in my lunch box if my birthday was on a school day. While I had my license for a while, I certainly didn’t have my own car and wasn’t allowed to drive to school. I literally had to borrow the keys to the car if I wanted to drive.

    My lunch bag had a small box that looked like it would contain jewelry, but inside was a set of my own keys to the car (on a key ring I’d bought on a family vacation that summer). There was also a note that the car would be parked in the senior lot and I had permission to take my four best girlfriends to a local pizza place after school. When we got there, my mom had left balloons, table decorations, and paid for everything in advance. We laughed and had a wonderful time as only teenage girls can.

    So many kids are gifted with cars for their 16th birthdays, but I was just amazingly happy to get my own set of keys for the family car. It was a really wonderful surprise and an awesome memory.

    My favorite Avon author is Loretta Chase. Old school, I know, but I cut my teeth on those Regency romances.
