Please give a warm welcome back to Tes Hilaire! The second book in her Paladin Warriors Paranormal romance series, Deliver Me from Temptation, hits stores this week!
Thanksgiving, Christmas… ‘Tis the season for happiness and get togethers and…PARTIES! Well today I’m asking you to join me for just one more. Thanks for having me back to celebrate the release of my second book, Deliver Me from Temptation. And what better way to celebrate than to play a little game? See, this is how it’s going to work… you are going to go to your bookshelf (and/or e-reader) and skim the titles. Whoever can list the most titles that have anything to do with Temptation will win! Win what, you ask? How about a $15 dollar gift certificate* to Discover a New Love! Not a member? No problem, this gift certificate will get you your membership and then some :-) We’ll also giveaway a couple of copies of Deliver Me from Temptation to the runners-up with tempting titles!
So, to review the deets: Go to your bookshelf (real or e-reader) and find any title that has to do with Temptation. It can be the word itself, or it can be something that makes you think of Temptation. Just be sure, if the link between the title and Temptation isn’t obvious, please include your explanation of why you think the title should make us think of Temptation. For example: White business cards. Now how in the world could they make anyone think of Temptation? Well… It went like this…
From Deliver Me from Temptation:
They did finally arrive, and she waited tensely as he got his ticket then sucked in a breath as they drove forward, passing from the light of day into the artificial light of the garage, and then shivered as they took the ramp to the level where her car was parked. She made a point to stare directly at the spot where she was taken down, and then turned her gaze to the elevator where she imagined the third man. It made her tense, and a glaze of sweat slicked over her skin, but she had to do it.
Like getting back onto a bike.
Logan double-parked his car behind hers, the locks clicking to their unlocked position. She reached for the door handle but his hand on her arm stilled her.
She turned her head, then wished she hadn’t when their gazes lined up making her breath catch at the intensity in his eyes. He held out a business card, his voice earnest as he spoke. “Promise me you’ll call if you need anything.”
She stared at the card like it was a snake, and shook her head. To take it would be akin to inviting temptation. Her reasoning was so far from acceptable where he was concerned.
“Please. Just in case.”
“Anything like what?”
He shrugged. “Help with anything. Or just to talk.”
And that was exactly what she was afraid of. It would be so easy to give in to her desire to know this man.
She stared at the card. Block letter script on white. Simple. Harmless unless she allowed herself to make it otherwise. “Just because I take it doesn’t mean I’ll ever call.”
“I know.” His eyes saddened as he said this, his mouth turned down in a grim line as if the thought of never seeing or hearing from her again was truly painful for him.
Oh yeah. Definitely stalker. Yet…
She reached out, snapping the card from between his fingers and stuffing it into the back pocket of her jeans.
His eyes flared, stormy gray before warming to a bluish-green slate color, but all he said was a simple, “Thank you.”
“I’ve got to go,” she said and pushed out of the car, then jogged across the garage to her own.
Okay, so maybe simple white business cards still won’t work for our game, but you get the gist. So go to it, make those lists, and have fun! Whether you win or not, you can be entered to win a copy of Deliver Me from Temptation*
