Giveaway: It's Time to Share the Love!

Welcome back to another month of Sharing the Love!

The book that I am giving away was so good that I had to re-read it right after I finished reading it! The storyline was so fascinating and I developed an instant crush on the hero in the book. He is now one of my favorite Book Boyfriends. This month's book is:

Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher!

This series is awesome! It's called The Sentinel Wars and this is what Burning Alive is all about:

Three races descended from ancient guardians of mankind, each possessing unique abilities in their battle to protect humanity against their eternal foes-the Synestryn. Now, one warrior must fight his own desire if he is to discover the power that lies within his one true love...

Helen Day is haunted by visions of herself surrounded by flames, as a dark-haired man watches her burn. So when she sees the man of her nightmares staring at her from across a diner, she attempts to flee-but instead ends up in the man's arms. There, she awakens a force more powerful and enticing than she could ever imagine. For the man is actually Theronai warrior Drake, whose own pain is driven away by Helen's presence.

Together, they may become more than lovers-they may become a weapon of light that could tip the balance of the war and save Drake's people...

  1. My favourite hero is a bit of a tie between Lucivar and Daemon from the Black Jewels series by Anne Bishop.
    I like Lucivar for his straighforwardness and sudden bursts of anger, while I like Daemon because of his viciousness and more subtle (but still brutal) ways of getting revenge.


  2. My favorite hero at the moment is Harry Potter.

    I know, that is crazy for an adult reading YA books but there it is !

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. I have both of those books, and they are AWESOME. Don't enter me in the contest, I just wanted to stop by and say Hi :)

  14. Bells, naming one hero is too hard. I'm fickle when it comes to book boyfriends. ;)

    So, right now, I'm all about the super alpha Rhys (aka The Iron Duke) from Meljean Brook's THE IRON DUKE.

    I'm in the US and either book would be awesome.
