Virtual signing of Dark Lover in hardcover by JR Ward. In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There also exists a secret band of brothers like no other – six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Among them, none relishes killing their enemies more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood…
Can’t even express how happy I am about this one! Although if you’ve ever looked through my blog, I’m sure you can imagine : )

Won

Autographed copy of Song of the Nile (Cleopatra’s Daughter #2) by Stephanie Dray. Sorceress. Seductress. Schemer. Cleopatra’s daughter is the one woman with the power to destroy an empire… Having survived her perilous childhood as a royal captive of Rome, Selene pledged her loyalty to Augustus and swore she would become his very own Cleopatra. Now the young queen faces an uncertain destiny in a foreign land.
Huge thanks to Stephanie Dray!

Lily of the Nile: A Novel of Cleopatra’s Daughter bookmark.
Huge thanks to Stephanie Dray!

Thirteen Hours by Deon Meyer. Morning dawns in Cape Town, and for homicide detective Benny Griessel it promises to be a very trying day. A teenage girl’s body has been found on the street, her throat cut. She was an American—a PR nightmare in the #1 tourist destination in South Africa. And she wasn’t alone. Somewhere in Cape Town her friend, Rachel Anderson, an innocent American, is hopefully still alive.
Thanks to Groove Atlantic.

Hurricane by Jenna-Lynne Duncan swag pack: bookmark, autographed bookmark, autographed postcard, button.
Thank you, Paper Cuts!

The Foremost Good Fortune by Susan Conley. In 2007, American writer Susan Conley moves to Beijing with her husband and two young sons. Six months later, she is diagnosed with breast cancer. Set against the fascinating backdrop of modern China and full of insight into the trickiest questions of motherhood, this wry and poignant memoir is a celebration of family and a candid exploration of mortality and belonging.
Thank you, Jen.

Start Something That Matters by Blake Mycoskie. What most matters to you? Should you focus on earning a living, pursuing your passions, or devoting yourself to the causes that inspire you? The surprising truth is that you don’t have to choose—and that you’ll find more success if you don’t. That’s the breakthrough message of TOMS’ One for One movement. You don’t have to be rich to give back. You don’t have to retire to spend every day doing what you love.
Thanks, Jake!
