I have something a little bit extra special for you today :)
Some of you may or may not know that the Romance Writer's Association (RWA) annual conference is at the end of this month. At this conference they will be awarding the RITA award to authors that represent the best in romance fiction published in 2009 (it's kind of like the Oscars of the Romance world). To celebrate Forever Romance is having a very special giveaway to honor all of their authors that they have published that have been nominated with a "RITA NOMINEES GIVEAWAY"....and Seductive Musings was chosen as one of the select few blogs to share in their celebrations! Isn't that exciting!
Want to know what you could win? Three lucky Seductive Musings readers will win ALL six of the Forever Romance RITA nominees:
- One Scream Away by Kate Brady
- For the Love of Pete by Julia Harper
- To Beguile a Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt
- Knight of Pleasure by Margaret Mallory
- My Forbidden Desire by Carolyn Jewel
- Kill For Me by Karen Rose
That's an amazing prize! I have had the pleasure of reading almost all of these books and I have to agree that they are all worthy of receiving the award that they have been nominated for. But who do you think will win a RITA? Take a guess and you might just win the giveaway.
This giveaway is going to be slightly different from ones I've had in the past. To enter to win this collection of books you will need to complete the RITA Nominees giveaway form and select which book you think will win in each category. Once the RWA awards ceremonies are over (July 31) I will go through and tabulate to find out which entries had the most correct selections. The three entries that have the highest number of correct RITA winners will win the Forever Romance RITA Nominees Giveaway. In the event there is a tie the winners will be selected by whoever has the most extra entries and/or they will be chosen randomly from among the highest scoring entries. If you'd like to learn more about the books nominated before making your selections you can find them here. Have fun!
p.s. and if you have favorites that you hope will win feel free to comment...or are there books that you feel should have been nominated and weren't? It won't gain you any extra entries, but I would love to hear your thoughts. I can think of a few.
Ways to earn entries:
- Mandatory: Complete the RITA Nominees Giveaway form (good for 1 entry)

*I am an Amazon affiliate and receive a small (and I mean very small) referral fee for purchases made using a link on this blog. I don't use Amazon to earn money, I use it because the widgets are cool, easy to use, and serve my purposes to showcase books & such with minimal effort, but most importantly they have great prices and offer both new and used items. As a book addict I love that I can find just about anything I want in one place. If you are going to purchase a featured book anyway, and you know you won't pay more by using the links on this blog than you would by visiting Amazon on your own, I will be eternally grateful for supporting this blog by using the links, and don't forget that the referral fees from your purchases will sponsor the "Reader Rewards" giveaways :)
