Fourth of July Giveaway: Thick as Thieves

Credit: http://www.achildgrows.com
I have three reasons to party this weekend. 

First, it’s a long holiday weekend, which means more time with my husband. 

Second, it’s my country’s birthday. Kind of a family thing, because my family arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732 and we kind of had a hand in building the place. 

Third…

I have a book coming out on Monday, July 8th, so over the weekend I will be running a couple of giveaways in celebration.

Because this is a launch party for Thick as Thieves, that’s the book being given away on this post.  I am giving away a free copy of Thick as Thieves in eBook or autographed paperback—whichever you choose—to one person who comments on this blog post before 6 a.m. my time on July 8th, the day the book is released. 

And because I like to do it that way, I will draw one name/winner for every 10 entrants.


RULES:

1. Leave a comment.

2. Include your email so I can contact you.

That’s it. No muss, no fuss!

What's the book about? Here's a handy blurb. And you can find an excerpt here.

After Vorgell the barbarian fucks himself with a unicorn horn, he ends up in a cell with Maddog, a pretty young thief. It’s lust at first sight for Vorgell—but honestly, he can’t help it. Unicorn horn is a potent aphrodisiac, and now he can’t stop thinking about sex. Luckily, Madd is one male witch who knows how to put Vorgell’s new magical body to good use when he tricks Vorgell into a kiss that helps them escape.

Vorgell may desire sex in general—and Madd in particular—but Madd has no intention of being screwed by a man twice his size. He has problems of his own, including an enchanted collar that causes him to desire his most hated enemy. He wants that collar off as soon as possible, but that requires stealing a basilisk egg from the castle they just escaped.

Drawn together by lust and magic, the two men join forces and soon find themselves up to their necks in witches, wizards, and trouble. Vorgell and Madd might just be perfect for each other, but first they have to survive long enough to find out.



Writing this book was so much fun it just feels right to keep on enjoying it. Thanks for helping me celebrate.

  6. Although I'm the child of 20th century immigrants, they came here because they believed in the American ideal! BTW, I love fantasy and MM!

    1. Immigration has enriched us all. My mother's family came here from Germany in the late 1800s. And my children's father was an immigrant from South America. The American ideal keeps on giving! :D Thanks for stopping by.

  11. My German ancestors came to Pennsylvania in the early 1700s and some from Scotland settled in NC around the same time. The Scots got a land grant for their participation in the Revolution. Wonder what they would think about my fascination with the idea of a magical unicorn horn dildo? Might a fiery stake have been in my future? Who cares, count me in please!

    3. I clicked on it and nothing happened, so I thought I couldn't. But I went back just now and though it didn't click over to email, I copied "email" and put it in a Word doc and... that came up with your address. So I learned something. :) Thanks for stopping back.

  14. Great reasons for a giveaway, and I'm not just saying that. ;-)

    So, that's an intriguing blurb. I don't know who can read that and NOT want to know what happens. I know I'm looking forward to getting my eyes on this one, by winning or buying. Thanks for the chance to win, though, Tali, and I hope lots of readers find their way to Thick as Thieves.
