Let's help author Olivia Gates! (there's a giveaway!)

Author Olivia Gates has a new book out today and because she lives in Egypt and because of the protests, internet access has been cut off. I'm joining several in the romance community who are giving a shout about Olivia's book, TO TEMPT A SHEIKH, releasing today. Please help us by posting the information below on your blog, your Facebook page or by tweeting a link to Olivia's home page. Let's support an author who cannot access the internet to promote her book.

About the book:
He rescued hostage Talia Burke from his royal family's rival tribe and swept her into his strong embrace. But Prince Harres Aal Shalaan soon discovered there was more to the brave beauty than he knew. Talia held information vital to protecting his beloved kingdom…and she had every reason not to trust him.

Marooned together at a desert oasis, Talia couldn't resist Harres. Yet even as his sizzling seduction entranced her, his loyalty to his family and country would always make them enemies. Falling for the sheikh would be her heart's greatest mistake…but she feared it was already too late…. In stores February 1! Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Books A Million and bookstores everywhere. Also available at eharlequin both in print and as an ebook.

If you'd like to order a copy for yourself, here's a quick link to Amazon!

I've ordered a copy for myself and will give away one Kindle copy here. Please note that you do not have to have a Kindle to read Kindle books. You can download the Kindle app for your iPod, PC, etc. so there's no good reason not to enter! Just leave a comment about series romance - do you have a favorite line? I have to admit that I'm a sucker for the Desire, Intrigue, and the Presents lines. I used to like the Blaze line, but they had gotten almost silly there for a while and I just never made my way back. This will be a quick contest because I don't want to take away from those important first week sales. I'll draw a winner on Thursday evening. Tell you friends - if they mention you in their comment, I'll enter your name an extra time for each mention.

Thanks, ladies!

My favorites are Intrigue, American Romance and Presents.

Am so glad to see so many people helping get the word out about Ms Gates's book!

I love the Intrugue line. They just seem to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Desire is my favorite line. Intrigue is up there too. I read a couple authors in the super romance line.

CrystalGB said...

I love Desires, Presents, Historicals and Blazes. I am a huge fan of category romance.

I am the say way about the Blaze line. I was disappointed several months in a row and just quit buying them. My fav is the Presents line but I read the Desires too. I really hate that BN and Amazon quit selling the whole months worth as a OneClick buy.

I read from the Blaze, Desire and Presents line mostly. I have found that I don'e read nearly as many series titles as I used to. just don'e seem to have the time and when I do have time to read I tend to pick a single title over a series title.

Hi Laurie,

Ty for sharing the post and news on RJR - I am Pamela Denise from there. I am catching up late - as usual. I sent the link on to a few others.

I read from most of the Harlequin lines actually. Desire, Nocture, Presents, and Blaze are the top four. Really depends on the book or author I guess.
