contest Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so we wanted to put together a special romance giveaway for our readers. We have seen a lot of fabulous new authors making their debuts in the past couple of years. Seeing so many good new voices makes one very hopeful about the future of romance and we hope that these new authors will keep writing for many more years. Several authors whose debuts were published in the past two years have offered prizes for our prize basket this Valentine’s Day and we are very excited to offer it to you! One lucky winner will get a prize basket stuffed full of goodies that includes:

-A bookmark and signed copy of Proof of Seduction by Courtney Milan

-A bookmark and signed copy of Scoundrel’s Kiss by Carrie Lofty

-A signed copy of Pieces of Sky by Kaki Warner

– A signed copy of Bound by Temptation by Lavinia Kent

– A bookmark and signed copies of Goddess of the Hunt, Surrender of a Siren and A Lady of Persuasion by Tessa Dare

-For your reading comfort, a pink Snuggie that comes with its own booklight!

-a $50 e-gift card to the fabulous RedEnvelope. For those not familiar with the site, RedEnvelope features unique gifts. I got one from them once and in addition to having nice things, the site sends their gifts in a red box with ivory ribbon and just goes the extra mile to present the entire package in a way that makes it feel very special.

– Last but not least, it would not be Valentine’s Day without a little chocolate indulgence! So the lucky winner will also be getting a little chocolate treat.
