Wicked Lord Release Contest

I haven't done a contest for awhile so here goes! I was originally going to call this contest a "Fortnight of Narcissism," but I thought that was too narcissistic.

Between September 1st (the paperback release of Wicked Desires) and September 14th (the ebook release of Wicked Lord,) you may enter the contest by: 1) commenting on a blog post 2) following this blog or 3) friending me on twitter (elloydwriting.)  Be sure to leave your contact information, preferably an email address.

And what's in it for YOU?

Don't forget, you need to be 18 to enter!

First prize: an ebook of Wicked Lord, the first season DVD of Hawaii Five-O (quick some one tell me why I choose that series,) and a paperback edition of one of my favorite historical novels by Loretta Chase, Lord of Scoundrels along with a $25 Lord and Taylor gift card. Okay, have you figured out the LORD connection to Hawaii Five-O. I know it was a stretch.

Second prize: an ebook of Wicked Lord, a paperback of Wicked Desires and a paperback of another favorite novel, My Lord and Spymaster by Joanna Bourne.

Third Prize: an ebook of Wicked Lord and some author swag.

Prizes will not go out until the end of September (due to the DVD release date of Five-O.) Tell all your friends so they can share in my narcissism!

What's next for the WICKED AFFAIRS series?

With the release of Wicked Lord on September 14th, a new character is introduced, Alizabet Standifer. She is the only sister of the Wicked Lord Redding, Edward Chase, and has her own marriage difficulties. This book, tentatively titled Wicked Secrets, follows two people with the darkest of secrets. Her husband Charles has just admitted to an affair. Yes, I know, it is going to be hard to redeem him by the end of the book.

Charles is fighting his heritage - a father who was the veriest scoundrel and seducer of women. Charles fears it is in his nature to be as faithless. Alizabet was abused as a child and leaves her cold to his advances. Can they stop the spiral of anger and hurt before they are destroyed by wicked secrets?

WICKED LORD, releasing on September 14th

I received news today that WICKED LORD, the third installment in the Wicked Affairs series will release on September 14th from Ellora's Cave. The great cover was designed by Dar Albert. She does 'bodice ripper" so well!

Here's the blurb:
Helene Cosgrove’s only passion is her art until she is betrothed to a respectable baron. Believing he will be the love of her life, she is crushed when her father ends the engagement. Helene is approached by a second suitor, the wicked Lord Redding, Edward Chase. She is duty bound to marry the scoundrel even though she despises him.
Redding happily snatches his rival’s betrothed and finds himself married to a woman of outstanding talents, utter radiance and innocent sexuality. Her haughty and summary rejection of him only spurs his desire to have her and prove to her he is as worthy of her love as her former swain. And what better way than to tutor her in his bed.
Helene is tempted by Redding in all the wrong ways. When he delivers her secret desires, she must reconcile her heart to the matter—deciding whether she loves Redding for who he is or for what he can do for her, in and out of the marriage bed.

Hope you enjoy Redding, one of my favorite bad-boy heroes.
