ANIMAL ATTRACTION, the latest from Jill Shalvis - two giveaways!

Have you heard about the latest release from Jill Shalvis?  I was fortunate enough to have an early look and all I can say is run, don't walk, to get your copy!  I'm not doing a full review but hey, have I ever steered you wrong on a book recommendation?  I always tell Jill that the hero she's currently working on is my favorite, but feel pretty comfortable saying that Dell has maintained a place right at the top of the leaderboard!  Here's more about it:

She’s tempting his basic instincts…
Sunshine, Idaho, is a quiet ranching town, a perfect place to give injured animals a refuge…or to find one. And veterinarian Dell Connelly suspects there’s a reason his clinic’s uber-efficient receptionist has taken shelter here.
Jade Bennett couldn’t be happier to escape her well-meaning but smothering family and their expectations, not to mention the big-city jungle. There’s nothing like working with injured animals, having a forlorn, grumpy stray kitten make its home under her desk…or enjoying the gorgeous views of her ruggedly sexy boss.
Jade is used to planning everything in her life, but Dell’s understanding has sparked an uncontrollable desire. And though Dell has never had time for love, Jade’s strength and sass is the kind of call no red-blooded male can resist…

A little excerpt:
“Come on, baby,” he murmured. “Give it up for me. You know you want to.”
Jade Bennett did her best to ignore the way the low, sexy voice made her shiver. Besides, it wasn’t aimed at her. Dr. Dell Connelly; dog whisperer, cat whisperer, horse whisperer, and known woman whisperer … was talking to a stray kitten.
The feline in question huddled miserably beneath the bench seat in Dell’s vet center waiting room, staring at him from narrowed eyes, clearly having none of the sweet talk. She was a scruffy/mangy grayish brown with sharp green eyes, and like Jade, not swayed by sweet talkers.
“Huh,” Jade said from behind the reception counter. “Most females leap right into your arms at the slightest encouragement.”
Dell craned his neck and regarded her from eyes as dark as his secrets. “Not all.”
There was a beat of silence during which she did her best not to break eye contact. He was right. Not all females, otherwise she’d have made the leap.

Sigh. Everyone - Go forth and buy!  Here's a link to Amazon so you can snag your own copy!!
The giveaway: Post your favorite thing about Jill's work, her website, her always-fun blog, her covers, or basically anything you want, and you'll be entered. I'll pull two winning names and those winners will have their choice from Jill's backlist (so long as she has a copy available) on Saturday, October 8th. Want another chance at a book? Tell a friend and have them mention your referral and you'll get your name in the draw an extra time for each friend who drops your name. So be sure to send your friends over!
Another reminder about checking back to see if you're a winner. I will not track you down, sorry.
Good luck to all - I hope you're having a fabulous week!

I like Jill's sense of humor. The intense sexual chemistry that sparks across the page. Her funny blog, sharing her love of family, cookies and the gorgeous Lake Tahoe area.
I've never read a book of hers that I didn't enjoy.

I have not read Jill's books yet! I have been seeing this one around and it sounds really good. So many authors and so little time.
