The Mine to Possess Hot Men Contest

Contest Now Closed

To celebrate the upcoming (February 5th!) release of Mine to Possess the 4th full-length entry in the Psy/Changeling world, which features one hot hero in the luscious Clay Bennett, I'm running a contest where you get to rave/gush/cheer about your favorite romance novel hero(es).

What's up for grabs?


The winner, chosen at random, will receive a US$50 Amazon voucher and a very special Mine to Possess Teaser prize pack. All the things in the prize pack have some relevance to the book (ok, so maybe one is kinda just for fun) so speculate away!


1. Fancy Tea

2. Dark Chocolate

3. Strawberry scented soap

4. Candles

5. A Stud...ded collar


No picture because we'll put it together after the contest ends so everything will be sparkly fresh.


What do you have to do to enter?


(a) write about your favorite romance novel hero(es)* and why you like him/them on your blog, myspace, livejournal etc (how long or short you make the post is totally up to you)

(b) link back to this post & mention the contest

(c) post the cover of Mine to Possess if possible; and

(d) leave a comment here with a link to where you've posted your entry (if, for some reason, you can't comment, email me the details at nalinisinghwrites @ gmail.com (without the spaces))

(e) do all this before midnight February 2nd, 2008, PST.


I think this is going to be so much fun! I can't wait to see the men you consider your favorites!

*Addendum: I had a question about whether it was ok to talk about favorite heroes from tv, movies etc. Why not?! All hot men accepted. ;)

Ohhhh...Nalini you are just too good to us! Hmmm, 'luscious Clay' has such a lovely ring to it :)

I may actually have to post on my LJ...I have one, but I've never used it. There's a first time for everything (and this is a very good reason). Not long to go now until the book's release!

orannia *who isn't calendar watching...who me?*

Bridget Locke said...

Nalini-Can I ask a question? Does it have to be just romances (i.e. books) or can it also be our favorite heroes on TV, movies, etc? I'm just asking because I've got a serious jones for Mr. Thornton from BBC's North and South. :)

Nalini Singh said...

Orannia, hope you join in!

Bridget - see addendum to contest ;) I've been hearing so much about N&S that I'm going to have to find a copy on dvd and watch it (it's not on tv down this way).

Nalini Singh said...

Argh, I meant - Kaitlin!

Marie said...

I normally miss all your contests! I'm so excited!!!

I posted my favorite hero(s) on my page. Wow, it was hard to choose.

Kat said...

Nalini, I'm guessing that it doesn't matter when you post so long as it's before midnight 2/2, right?

I know who my fave hero is, I'm just not very eloquent at the moment.

Nalini Singh said...

Kat, yep - anytime before the contest ends and you're in the draw.

Jaci Burton said...

Oh fun stuff Nalini!

And I just tagged you on my blog! Come see :-)

Cool contest! I posted my fav hero on my blog, www.jenniferestep.com/blog. Couldn't post the cover, though. My blog program hates Amazon covers. Sigh.

Katie(babs) said...

Nalini, you must find a copy of North and South.
And if you go on You Tube they have the final scene from the movie that makes everyone go ga-ga over it!
Richard Armitage is major droolage.
But then there is Gerry Butler and George Clooney... the list goes on and on!

we3slys said...

OK, think I have done it! I posted a blog on myspace and was actually able to figure out how to get the cover on! Whoo hoo! Thanks for the fun contest Nalini. There is nothing more fun that talking about yummy mens!

PS. If I have missed anything, please let me know!!

Bridget Locke said...

Sweet! I'll have to think it over for a bit. Will have it on my blog though soon. Whee!

Tracy said...

Hi Nalini - gee that was so much harder than I would have thought! I like so many how can I just choose 1 or even just a few? Well, I managed to do it on my myspace page but I'm not sure I can post a link. If it doesn't work then you can check it out on my blog at
myspace.com/redneyrae

Here's the old college try:

Bridget Locke said...

ilona said...

Wasn't sure if I could pick just one but after much thought I managed it, but only because that book is my most read so he must be my favourite hot hero :D

orannia said...

Ummm, Nalini - do we have to limit it to one hot man or (if we're really, really stuck) could we list more than one? *pretty please with sugar on top*

I'm more than happy to separate them according to sub-genre (paranormal, fantasy, contemporary, suspense)? (I've thought about this way too much, haven't I :)

Thank you!

orannia

PS Hopefully (fingers crossed) I'll post tonight (I'm still trying to work out how to post an image, but my lovely friend Kerry has made a suggestion :)

Nalini Singh said...

Orannia - go for it! As many as you like :)

Hi Nalini,

I just recently discovered your books and have been reading through your back list. I love your stories and can't wait for this book to come out! Here is the link to my post :)

Ashley said...

Ok, I did mine! It's at my group blog, http://smutsluts.blogspot.com/

orannia said...

OK, so I've posted. It's only taken me 2 weeks to 1) work out how to do so and 2) narrow the list down. I'm sorry Nalini, I wasn't very articulate about why I chose the two men that I did...I'm working on that one :)

Roll on the 5th of February!

Horray! I made a blog post for the contest AND I'm leaving a comment! It's not that great and it's mostly rambles, but I wanted to try. I must be feeling brave. ^_^

Hope it works.

Hello, Nalini,

My favorite is David Boreanaz. I've
followed his television career thru
"Buffy" to "Angel" to "Bones." I've
enjoyed his progress from vampire
to FBI agent! Who knew!! I just
know he is one very enjoyable sight
to behold!!!
