DA BWAHA Thanks & More!

So it’s March, and that means that it’s time for the craziest contest of all–DA BWAHA, the contest with the unpronounceable acronym, essentially a March Madness for romance novels (and others that are romance-novel-esque).

I have not one, but two books in DA BWAHA–The Duchess War in the historical category, which was voted in by popular acclaim (thanks!), and The Governess Affair in the novella category. So far things have been going well–in the first two rounds of the historical category, The Duchess War managed to prevail over Cecilia Grant’s first two amazing books, A Lady Awakened–which features some of the best bad sex to be found in a romance novel, and I say that in the most complimentary fashion you can imagine, and A Gentleman Undone, which features an extremely complicated, difficult (my favorite kind!) of heroine, one where another author might have thought of pulling her punches, but Cecilia Grant just shrugged and took her to her complicated, difficult, extreme. The result is extraordinary.

In any event, I’m really humbled to have been chosen over these books–but I think that maybe more people need to read them and discover how awesome they are. So in the spirit of giving away books, I’m going to be giving away 5 copies of each of these–two of each on this blog, and three of each on twitter.

To enter the giveaway on this blog, leave a comment with your name. If you have a preference for which book you want (maybe you read one but not  the other), say so, too. Do so by Sunday night at midnight, and I’ll pick winners Monday monrning.

For the twitter giveaway: You do have to follow me on twitter to win those, so just watch out at http://twitter.com/courtneymilan over the rest of this weekend.

  3. I haven’t read either, but I did just re-read The Duchess War and loved it just as much as I did the first time. I’ve been wondering about CG, and my favorite way to find new authors is through authors I already trust. Yay!

  8. I loved the Duchess War and A Lady Awakened and flipped a coin as to which one to pick in my bracket – my coin toss was wrong and my brackets are toast! Thanks for the giveaway. If I am lucky enough to win, I’d like A Gentleman Undone.

  11. Courtney, I admire your generosity in promoting another author’s books. Either book would be great. Congratulations on your DA BWAHA nominations!

  12. I’ve already read both of these books, so please don’t consider me for the giveaway – give them to someone who hasn’t read them yet! – but I wanted to say that everything you say is so true. The Duchess War v A Lady Awakened was the hardest decision I made for the dabwaha voting. Both such incredible books.

  13. I’d love A Lady Awakened! I haven’t read it yet, but the “best bad sex” you mentioned, definitely caught my attention! :)
    Congrats and good luck during the rest of DA BWAHA!

  14. You and cecilia grant are my favourite authors and it would have been a dilemma to chose between both of you, so I didnt vote at all :(
    But congratulations! And I would love a copy of a lady awakened!

  15. What a lovely thought! I would like A Gentleman Undone, since I’ve read A Lady Awakened.

    And since I’m commenting anyway, I just want to mention again how much I love your work – it feels like every book is better than the last.
