Off to RAW!

I'm heading off to Lora Leigh's Reader Appreciation Weekend (RAW), so the next blog update will likely be sometime late next week.

Hopefully, I'll have lots of photos to share with you all when I get back. But, until then, I have a great giveaway for you - a signed copy of the fabulous Devil's Bride by Stephanie Laurens.

I love the Cynsters, and Devil's Bride is the first book in the series. My own copy is very well loved and sits proudly on my keeper shelves. I was soooo tempted to keep this copy, too, but I decided I'd rather send it out so someone else could experience the magic.

If you like protective, possessive alpha heroes, and female leads strong enough to take on these gorgeous men, I think you'll enjoy Honoria and Devil's story. You can read an excerpt on Stephanie Laurens' website, but take my word for it - it's a wonderful book!

Leave a comment on this post by midnight, Tuesday 23rd September (New Zealand time) if you'd like to go into the draw for this copy of Devil's Bride. See you when I get back from RAW! :)

Have a wonderful time Nalini! I'm looking forward to seeing the photos...and aren't come of the regular posters here going? I love putting a face to a name :)

I LOVE Devil's Bride! Actually, I think it was the first romance book I read upon returning from the UK...when I embraced romance the genre (versus the odd anthology :) As for Devil Cynster...YUM! But what made this book for me is that the heroine - Honoria - isn't a typical historical heroine.

Thank you Nalini! Safe travels!

This is one of my all time favorite books. Nothing like a trong opinionated woman to say no to a DUKE, let alone a Cynster.

Have a great trip Nalini! I too love the Cynsters! Jen :)

Love a chance to read it!

Have a great time at RAW!
One of these days I'm going to make it to one of those things!

Bridget Locke said...

Oh...never read this. Heard great things about Ms. Laurens though.

Hope you have a great time at RAW! :) Bring back lots & lots of gossip. LOL!

Courtney said...

I loved Devil's Bride as well. I hope your flights go fast, Nalini! I'll see you soon! You'll loooove your little present from me. LOL

Cindy W said...

OH how I'd love to win this book!! Thank you!

Jaded Bee said...

Wish I could go. I'll make it to one of those if I have to make my sister take a random road trip to do it, I don't like traveling alone.

Sounds right up my ally, I'd love the chance to read it!

Jennifer said...

Have a safe trip, Nalini. I'll see you soon. *insert wicked laugh*

Nah, I won't bug you too much. I may try out the hypno eyes in person, though. Of course, you'd probably just think my eyes were bugging out or I was having a seizure or something ... ;)

Be safe and have a great trip.

I bought Devil's bride based on the recommendation of the bookstore's owner. I never heard the name Stephanie Laurens before. I kept it for half a year in my car and only began to read it during the trafic jam since it is the only book in my car. About three hour later, my car moved about 300 metres from the old spot but I did not care. I was so into the story.

I love this book. I just re-read it a couple of months ago and it started me on a Regencey Romance quest. I have been reading them non-stop since finishing this book. With the exception of course of Nalini's latest book.

Have a nice time Nalini!

I read all books of Stefanie Laurens. But my favourite book of her is "The Promise in a Kiss". (It`s the story of Devils Parents.)

Awww, I want to go too! *pouts*
Have a wonderful time Ms. Nalini~~~ don't go too nuts ;) although pictures and posts of said events would be happily read by us here. :D Have a safe flight! Will miss ya-

I liked Gabriel's story better although Honoria was one awesome heroine too. Hehehe, no to a duke. Teehee.

Hmmm, sounds like a great book. I'll add it to my "to be read" list. Safe travels, Nalini.

Thank you,

Have a safe trip!

I've never started reading the Cynsters because the series has so many books already it's almost daunting. LOL

Frances said...

Have a great time! Thanks for the book recommendation too btw. :)

OK, this is totally random...I am re-reading Caressed by Ice, and I swear I remember a story about Hawke and the girl he though would be his mate in there somewhere. Am I going crazy? Thanks everyone!

Jules said...

I just came out of lurking to tell you that I adore all your books.
Oh yes! And have a really wonderful time!

funkywaterdino said...

I wanted to go to RAW so bad, but I am planning on going next year and hopefully you will be there. Now I'm on to read the excerpt of Devil's Bride

Jenn W said...

Oh, this is a great book, and one of my favorite Cynsters.

Nalini, I had a great time meeting you at RAW! Hope you have a safe trip home. :)

limecello said...

I hope you had a great time at RAW, Nalini! Sounds like it's a fabulous get together.
I'm too late for the drawing (of course :P) but I LOVE Devil's Bride. I think it was the first Cynster novel I read (a novelty in and of itself because I never seem to be able to get into a series in the correct order). I loved it. Still love it. Devil and Honoria are some of my favorite historical romance characters. The story, their personality, all fabulous.
