Hello one and all! Happy new year! To celebrate a new year (that I know will be better than 2011), and the fact that I reached my Goodreads reading goal I am giving away a brand new copy of one of my favorite 2011 reads (also, the first book I read in January 2011), Nocturne by Syrie James. I read and reviewed this book before I started That Artsy Reader Girl, so check out my review on Goodreads!
When Nicole Walker runs off the road in a blinding snowstorm after attending a friend’s wedding at a Colorado ski resort, she wakes up to find herself stranded at the remote mountain house of a handsome, enigmatic stranger. She lives and works in a fast-paced, high tech world; he is cultured and modern yet lives a quiet life in self-imposed exile. They are both powerfully attracted to each other, but there are things about him that mystify her and fill her with apprehension—and Nicole can’t shake the feeling that he really doesn’t want her there.
She soon discovers that he’s a famous, reclusive author, renowned for his highly detailed and authentic historical fiction, and fiercely protective of his privacy. No wonder he was so reluctant to take her in, Nicole thinks. But he hides a far darker secret. As the sexual tension between them builds, the clues mount up.
When Nicole realizes that her host is an ages-old vampire who thirsts for her blood, there’s nowhere for her to run but the blizzard raging outside, and he’s the only one who can save her life. By now there is no turning back; they have both fallen deeply in love, and share several passionate days together while waiting out the storm—a deep, meaningful, and dangerously seductive experience that will change them both forever.
This giveaway is International (just make sure The Book Depository ships to you)! Yay! If a USA resident wins, the package will be coming from me. If the winner lives outside of the USA, it will come from The Book Depository.
Congratulations, Lecea L.!
