Giveaway - This Side of the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

Valentine's Day will be upon us in the next couple of days, and Romance is in the air, especially in our house. Mr. Mc. and I met on the 13th Feb, 22 years ago (we were one of his early shots that year! Lol!) So, Cupid's Day  is always a sort of double celebration* for us. But this year we're making it a triple*. Our third celebration is the release of my third Spellcrackers book (how's that for synchronicity!).

And my 3rd book is, if you've been following the celebratory giveaways, The Bitter Seed of Magic!

It releases in the UK on 17th Feb (1st time in print), but The Book Depository seem to be shipping early! Yay!

(Don't forget you could win a copy here at Rabid Reader - scroll down - or here at  Falcata Times)

and, of course, in a few weeks time we'll be celebrating again when ...

The Cold Kiss of Death - Spellcrackers # 2 released in the US on 26th April (out now in the UK)

But it's another pair of fang-tabulous LoveBirds, one of my favourite couples from an awesome paranormal romance/ UF series, that are featuring in this week's (# 5) celebratory giveaway . . .

This Side of the Grave** by Jeaniene Frost

Danger waits on both sides of the grave… 

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance… 

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous “ally”—the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war. …to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

Ooh, I can't wait! How about you? And you don't have to, or at least not for the first 20% which you can read here.

And for a chance to win your very own copy of This Side of the Grave, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me who your favourite LoveBirds are (excluding Cat & Bones ;p) from Fiction, TV, Film or where ever.

*so, you could say we're getting a lot of use out of our celebratory bottle of bubbly *g*

Helen said...

Can I cheat and have two? In history - Harold Godwinson and Edith Swanneck - (that's Harold of 1066 fame) Edith was his "common law" wife for over 20 years & they had at least 6 chikdren, but he had to set her aside to take an "official" wife when he became King in 1066.
The day after the famous battle at Hastings Edith, however, had to identify Harold's remains - for she was the only one who knew "secret" marks on his body. Can you imagine having to do that? (especially as Harold had been decapitated, dismembered, mutilated and disemboweled)
My second pair - well it has to be my pirate Jesamiah Acorne and his "girl" the white witch Tiola from my Sea Witch voyages! (sorry Suzanne - a blatant plug as well as hoping to win a book! *laugh*
Looking forward to your next release
very much


DarkBloodyVamp said...

Thank you so much for this giveaway!

My favorite lovebirds outside Cat & Bones is Sookie and Bill from True Blood. I love the passion that they shared and the loved that they expressed for each other.

Thank you.


Smash Attack! said...

This is ridiculously hard. Aside from Cat & Bones, the first couple that enter my mind are John Matthew and Xhex from the Black Dagger Brotherhood. They have both endured severe trauma and find solace in one another, all the while remaining strong for the other.

Thank you SO much!

Cautionary Tale said...

Well as Cat & Bones are off the list, for me it would have to be Elena & Raphael from Nalini Singhs Archangel series. They are hot, hot, hot, and the ultimate warrior soulmates with a deep bond of utter trust and love that means I love reading about them and hate it when I finish the book. Anyhoo, loving your work, Sam x
