One last batch of winners!

Okay. So this is the last batch of multi-book winners. From here on out, I will not procrastinate on the giving away of books, not in the slightest. And that’s a good thing, because in September and October, we have some amazing books to look forward to–and I will definitely need an entirety of a full post to highlight their awesomeness.

(Here’s a hint: we’re going to start with a historical romance adventure story that takes us from the expected world of Victorian England… to Outer Mongolia. Seriously. Outer Mongolia. The book so completely, utterly rocks–and the second book in the series just got a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly–and honestly, I feel like a kid in a candy store right now, especially anticipating the fourth book. I’m so excited to be able to talk to people about this series!)

In any event. Ahem. Before I get ahead of myself, here are the winners from the previous post:

  • Twice Tempted by a Rogue, by Tessa Dare: Theresa Romain, MaryK, Aislinn
  • Crazy for Love, by Victoria Dahl: peggy h
  • The Forbidden Rose, by Jo Bourne: Chelsea B
  • Money, Honey, by Susan Sey: Kim
  • The Cinderella Society, by Kay Cassidy: Susan B

If you’re a winner, e-mail your snail mail address to and I will get it out right in the mail.

This brings me to my last set of giveaways. As you may know, if you go to romance conferences (Romantic Times, RomCon, or RWA) you end up getting a handful of free books. They just can’t throw books at you fast enough! Of course, I read voraciously and many of the books I’ve gotten (for free!) I already own. Some of them, I have multiple copies! But some of them are so good that I can’t resist picking up another copy, knowing that I can introduce it to someone else who loves historical romance. So here’s what I have:

  • Goddess of the Hunt, by Tessa Dare. (Got this from RT, where it won a well-deserved award for Best First Historical).
  • Bound by Temptation, by Lavinia Kent. (This is autographed–and a very sexy book, where the “bound” part is quite literal.)
  • The Perils of Pleasure, by Julie Anne Long. (Also autographed–JAL is one of my favorite, favorite authors, ever.)
  • What Happens in London, by Julia Quinn. (Winner of the RITA, and the book that got JQ into the Hall of Fame. And one of the funniest, most hilarious books ever. Don’t miss the pigeons.)
  • Ten Things I Love About You, by Julia Quinn. (Quite possibly the winner of next year’s RITA, too–I did just accidentally buy a second copy of this.)
  • Captive of Sin, by Anna Campbell. (This book is also autographed–and it’s both hot and heartwrenching, in inimitable Anna Campbell style.)
  • Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake, Sarah MacLean (autographed–and I can’t tell you how much I love this book! Sarah is definitely a historical author to watch, and if this book is her historical romance debut, I can’t wait for book #2… and #3… and #4.)

I’ll pick winners on Wednesday or Thursday. Enjoy!

Courtney Milan writes historical romances, which might lead people to think that she could be cool. In reality, she's about four different kinds of geeky. At present, this blog is where Courtney applies semi-dormant geek skills to publishing.

  1. Please enter me, I have been procrastinating on trying to find a few of those books. I want to read Nine Rules, Ten Things, and What Happens in London. They all look great.

  2. Please don’t enter me as I have most of the books given away, just wanted to say I’m reading that ‘Outer Mongolia’ book right now and it’s awesome!

  3. Oh man, you do pick good ones. Several of these are on my To Be Bought list, but I’ve banned myself from buying books until my TBR pile shrinks. Giveaways don’t count under the ban though because they’re gifts. It would be rude to refuse a gift. 😉

    Bound by Temptation – The excerpt I read of this one was awesome.
    What Happens in London
    Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake

    I’d love to know how you find time to read voraciously. I used to but I’ve lost the knack.

  4. Apparently my reading habits are a little too voracious! I’ve read all of these except “What Happens In London”, I love Julia Quinn, so win or not, this one is on the list of must haves 🙂

  5. I too, have a large TBR pile and read a lot. I’ve either read, or have all of the books on the list except three:
    •Bound by Temptation, by Lavinia Kent.
    •The Perils of Pleasure, by Julie Anne Long.
    •Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake, Sarah MacLean.

    I’d love to win one of those though, that would be fantastic.

  6. I already have Goddess of the Hunt. It was excellent. Based on that book alone, Tessa Dare became an auto-buy for me. ^_^

    I would love any of these, though:

    Bound by Temptation
    Captive of Sin
    Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake

    I’ve heard good things/read good reviews of all of those. (A friend of mine buys all of Julia Quinn’s -and Julie Anne Long’s – novels, so I have access to those already. ^_^)

  7. Another great set of books. Any work for me *winks*. Thanks for another great contest. I wish I could have attended Romantic Times, RomCon, or RWA!

  8. As always, any book is a good book for me. Would love to win any of them. One can never have too many books!

  9. I haven’t read any of these, but I’ve been hearing good things. Especially the two numbered titles, Ten Things and Nine Rules.

  10. Wonderful collection of books. This time I would like to try for:
    Goddess of the Hunt
    Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake

  11. I haven’t read most of them , so please please make me possible to dive into their world !

    # Goddess of the Hunt, by Tessa Dare.
    # Bound by Temptation, by Lavinia Kent.
    # The Perils of Pleasure, by Julie Anne Long.
    # What Happens in London, by Julia Quinn.
    # Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake

  12. I would love to win The Perils of Pleasure.

    I am so I intrigued by the series you are hinting about. Outer Mongolia? I’m going to try to google this.

  13. Woot! I won!! Off to send you my addy. Thanks! I loved Victoria’s last contemporary trilogy, but had been debating whether to start this new set. I guess I am now!

    And I hope it’s not too-too-too greedy if I say—I’d love to be in the running for this last batch of books. I mean, I know it’s greedy, but hopefully not in a rude way…ha! I have Goddess of the Hunt already (and loved it!) so any of the other books would be terrific.

    Thank you so much, Courtney!

  14. Very generous! I find myself getting duplicates (or triplicates) of books I love to do the same thing – get other people started!

    I would love to be entered. Especially been looking to get:
    Goddess of the Hunt
    Bound by Temptation
    Captive of Sin
    Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake

  15. Please enter me for Julia Quinn’s “Ten Things I Love About You,” Julie Anne Long’s “The Perils of Pleasure,” Anna Campbell’s “Captive of Sin.”

  16. I would love to get my hands on any of those books. New historical romance can be a bit thin on the ground in South Africa. If you don’t know which authors to look out for it becomes down right hard to find any. So thank you for your list, it makes my book buying easier (cause they all sure do look good.)

  17. Goddess of the Hunt was an awesome read! So please put my name in the hat for:

    Bound by Temptation
    The Perils of Pleasure
    What Happens in London
    Ten Things I Love About You
    Captive of Sin
    Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake

    Thanks for the great contest, Courtney! 🙂

  18. Wow, are you ever generous! Thanks so much for thinking of us AND lugging them all back home, only to have to turn around and mail them out!

    I already have Anna’s book in my TBR pile; it’s lookin’ good!

    The Nine Rules book sounds intriguing. Great title and definitely one I’ll watch for!

    Julia Quinn’s books are always winners.

    I’ve never heard of the others, so thanks for sharing. I’ll have to watch for them too!

    Have a great week!

  19. Sarah, Julia and Tessa are some of my favorite authors right now! I’ve heard great things about the others, but I haven’t tried them yet. I’d love to win any of them!

  20. I was thrilled about JQ’s ‘What Happens in London’ win – was one of my favorite reads this year, so ’10 things’ is one of my most anticipated books. Staying with the numeric theme, I’m also very much looking forward to ‘9 Rules’.
