Giveaway (US/Int): Men & Women of the Military Blog Hop

by davincikittieNovember 8, 2012

The title of this blog hop is “Men & Women of the Military” and, let’s face it, not many of us are going to complain about looking at an event badge like this…

We owe a debt of gratitude and respect to the brave men and women who have served in our armed forces, both present and past. Those at desks and in the field, those who plan and those who do, those who join the military for a short tour and those who make a life-long career of it. I want to dedicate this giveaway to all our soldiers and those who support them. Freedom does not come cheap and it is certainly not “free”, and we hope you never feel like we take you for granted or don’t appreciate all you sacrifice both during your tour(s) of duty and after you return home. Huzzah!

Giveaway (US/Int)

The prize for this hop is a book that is a personal favorite of mine and a recent addition to the elite club of stories that have earned a perfect 5/5 review rating from GraveTells. I ended up with two advanced reader copies of this one and have been saving the extra copy just for this giveaway! Meet Luke Ransom…

If you haven’t yet read Blaze or the first book in the series, Fever, you’re missing out on a seriously smokin’ cast of hotties (pun totally intended) and some incredibly addicting writing from the very talented Joan Swan. Luke is an ATF agent and a fire cop and his sweetie Kiera O’Shay is a S.W.A.T. sniper… badasses, the both of them, with some lusciously dangerous chemistry! I thought they were the perfect couple to help celebrate this hop! (By the way, both Fever and Blaze won dual GT Book Awards in their review months for Book of the Month and Reviewer Top Pick. Coincidence? I think not! This series is a must-read!)

To enter to win, leave a comment on this post with a message for the men and women of our military, then fill out the Rafflecopter widget.
Note: If you are viewing this from our main Feed page, you’ll need to click the title of the post then scroll to the bottom to see the Comments section. Do not leave your comment in the Rafflecopter itself.

Just a heads up for those of you who are particular about your covers. The smexy mancandy you see above is NOT what you will get if you win this prize. This is a true ARC copy, complete with pale blue paper cover and black text. If you’ve never seen what one looks like, here’s your chance! The book has already released, so it’s no longer an actual advanced copy, just the style of one… because that’s what it was! 😉
Pssst! I’ll throw in a few swanky Fever and Blaze bookmarks too! Then you can look at those sexy chests, and Teague’s awesome tattoo, anytime you want. =P

    A lot of the men in my family served in one branch or another. Including my husband. We support ‘our’ men and women any way we can. Inluding purchasing Survival Straps and having the company send them to the military personnel for us. I’d love to do that again this year for Christmas gifts for them. All of us adults in the family also own multiple Survival Straps. They can be made in any color combination; for wrists or ankles; lanyards; for your dogs; keychains; etc!!!
    That’s one cool way that we let them know they’re loved and appreciated!
    Thank you so much,
