Free Book Friday (The Chilly Edition)

Baby, it's cold outside. No, seriously. It's friggin' freezing. There's no doubt that December is here and so is another round of Free Book Friday. Can you believe we've been doing this for over a year? Crazy.

This month, I'm very pleased to give away two books including a 'win it before you can buy it' copy of Kira Sinclair's January release Caught Off Guard. For those who read Kira's debut book Whispers in the Dark, Caught Off Guard is the story of Karyn's spunky friend Anne. Not a traditional December Christmas book, per se, but the book opens on a cold New Year's Eve and they look chilly on the cover, no? He needs to take that woman inside and warm her up. I betcha he does just that. :)

Caught off Guard by Kira Sinclair

Runaway heiress Annemarie Prescott vowed never to return home. Until life interfered…

The Plan: Run like hell from the society chains of her past.

The Reality: Run into Blake Mitchell…the most seductive one-night stand of her life. Unfortunately Blake was hired by her mother. His job? To convince Anne she must embrace the legacy she never wanted, and keep her safe while he's at it.

The Bonus: Blake's touch still tempts Anne to sin! And how…

The Complication: Danger looms and Anne realizes Blake does make her feel safe. Especially in the bedroom! But as soon as the bad guy is caught, Blake will be gone…unless Anne opens her heart and admits her bodyguard is more than just a hot distraction.

All I Want For Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks
Toni Davis's Christmas wish list

1. Springing my best friend from the psych ward.

2. Living somewhere that doesn't have coffins in the basement. Occupied coffins.

3. Finding Mr. Right. Please make him tall, dark, handsome, and alive.

This Christmas isn't so merry for Toni. Her best friend's been locked up in a mental hospital ever since she told the police she was attacked by vampires, and the only way for Toni to get her out is to prove that bloodsuckers really do exist. So she's taken a job as a bodyguard for the Undead, but she gets more than she bargained for, especially when she meets Ian MacPhie, a Scottish rascal looking for Ms. Right.

Although Ian's nearly five centuries old, he looks and acts like a twenty-seven-year-old hunk.

How can a dead man be so damn sexy? Could Mr. Wrong be Mr. Right? One forbidden kiss could lead to an eternity of passion--and all it takes is one moment under the mistletoe . . .

To win, comment in the thread with the phrase "I'm chilly - warm me up!"

Wisconsin has also been chilly 8* last night. We received 2 inches of snow yesterday. More snow is forecast for Saturday, 4-6 inches! I'm hoping for a white Christmas! My 3 sons are coming up from Florida. They haven't seen snow in 15 years!

I've always preferred warmer temperatures. I love to run around in shorts and T-shirts. I enjoy biking, walking swimming in the lake and reading outside.

When I was younger I went downhill and cross country skiing, ice skating. Now I seem to feel the cold more especially on my nose, fingers, ears and toes!

I'm chilly - warm me up!
Kira's book sounds fantastic! Cold weather is great for reading indoors next to a roaring fire!

You know Louisiana weather is very fickle. The one thing that is usually constant is the humidity - High most of the time. If you do not like the weather, wait 15 minutes and it will change on you.

With that being said. The temps have been in the upper 20s at night and mid-50s during the day. I'm chilly - warm me up! it was 36 degrees this morning but is to warm up into the mid-60s this afternoon.

One of the things I like most about chilly weather is that is provides a legit excuse to slip my hands into my hottie boyfriend's jean pockets. Front or back, it's a delish handful!

I'm chilly, warm me up with a hot tale of romance! Love to win and the books don't have to be Dec theme'd to interest me.

I live way down south and it has been freezing down here.

Michele L. said..., I'm chilly - warm me up! Definitely Blake would get my engines revving! What a handsome guy they got for that cover! Great eye candy!

Wowza! It has been very cold here also in Indiana. We are supposed to get a snowstorm tonight. Oh lucky us! They expect us to get up to a foot of snow.

How about I send some your way gals? We have plenty to spare! Ha,ha! I bet Laurie in Wisconsin could use some more. No? Awww...come on. I don't want to hog it all.

Have a great weekend everyone! Awesome contest! The excerpts from both books have got my curiousity up. Can't wait to read them!

Scotland is a total freeze out. The main motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was totally blocked with snow and people were stuck for more than 13 hours with nowhere to go. So much so, people who lived near the motorway were taking out food and cups of tea! So I'm chilly warm me up!
My husband is a gas man and has hundreds of calls about boilers which aren't working. British boilers aren't designed for temperatures below -20 and he keeps having to take a part out of hte boilers to defrost it!
Congrats Kara on your new book in January, wishing you lots and lots of sales x
