Free Book Friday - Sherrilyn Kenyon Edition

Today, while perusing my bookshelf, I ran across a gem that I thought everyone would appreciate winning. At RWA National Conference in San Francisco, I got to chat with Sherrilyn Kenyon. From nearby Tennessee, I met her the first time when she came to our local chapter luncheon a couple years ago. When I ran into her at one of the publisher signings, she wasn't swarmed with fans (for once) so I took the chance to say hi and picked up one of her books.

So for this round of Free Book Friday, I'm giving away this extra special autographed copy.


Dream Chaser by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Hades doesn't often give second chances...

Xypher has one month on Earth to redeem himself through one good deed or be condemned to eternal torture in Tarturus. But redemption means little to a demigod who only wants vengeance on the one who caused his downfall.

Until one day in a cemetery...

Simone Dubois is a medical examiner with a real knack for the job. Those who are wrongfully killed appear to her and help her find the evidence the police need to convict their killers. But when a man appears and tells her that she's more than just a psychic, she's convinced he's insane.
Now the fate of the world hangs in her hands...

It was bad enough when just the dead relied on her. Now's there's the seductive Dream-Hunter Xypher who needs Simone's help in opening a portal to the Atlantean hell realm to fight insatiable demons. The future of mankind is at stake--and so is her life. The only question now is: Who is the bigger threat: the demons out to kill her, or the man who has left her forever changed?

Sounds like a great read. I always like dark, brooding heroes that are just a touch too dangerous, but worth the risk. What's your favorite type of hero? If you want the chance to win a copy of this autographed book by Sherrilyn, be sure to comment today with the phrase "I love a dangerous hero."

"I like dangerous heroes!"

Since I don't meet them in my everyday life, I love meeting them in books!
I like that they struggle and mature through their encounters with the heroine.

I love a dangerous hero! I also love Sherrilyn's books. I've only been to one of her signings in Nashville and she was so nice to chat and sign for hours.

I kind of like the tortured heroes myself, but I love them all in their own way! I do like to switch around as we all do so we don't get tired of them!

*sigh* As much as I like dangerous heroes, I've got to bow out of this give, too. Just too much here to read yet...

But thanks for the heads-up about what's going on here today! I've posted about this at Win a Book.

I love dangerous heroes but obviously I can't win the book. LOL! Doesn't Sherrilyn have an interesting story about her road to publication though? And she sure dresses interestingly too -- vry dark like her heroes.

I like the tortured hero too who finds happiness with the love of a good woman.

I also like heroes with a good sense of humor - love snappy dialogue between h/h. Sounds like Mariska and I are in agreement. LOL.

I love a dangerous hero. I've always liked the "bad boy". They're so much better in fantasy as opposed to real life lol.
