Coutndown To Christmas Giveaway (Week One)

Christmas is a busy time in everyone’s lives. It’s frantic, chaotic and turns even the most sane person… well a little insane. In honour of the silly season that is quickly approaching I am running a series of give-aways over the coming months between now and Christmas whereby I will give away one book every two weeks or so, with the odd give-away every other week. Over the last few months I’ve been stockpiling a bunch of books from all different genres and authors waiting for the perfect opportunity to host a give-away and I can’t think of a better time of the year than Christmas to do just that. So without further ado, here is my first Countdown to Christmas Giveaway.

This week I am giving away a e-copy of  Holding Out For A Hero By Amy Andrews, which incidentally was just released yesterday.

When sensible schoolteacher Ella Lucas rides into her home town on a Harley and seduces the resident football hero, Jake Prince, she figures she can be forgiven and move on. After all, she’s just buried her mother.

Two years later, back in the city, their paths cross again but this time Jake is in the process of destroying her favourite dive bar. With her home facing a wrecker’s ball, her school being closed down and her 15-year-old brother hell bent on self-destruction, it’s the last straw. Throw in a dominatrix best friend who is dating a blue ribbon guy so straight he still lives at home with his mother, it’s no wonder the sanest person in Ella’s life is a dog.

With all this to contend with, the last thing Ella needs is Jake back in her life. But, as fate would have it, Jake is the only chance she has to save her school.

As the school football season heats up, old secrets threaten to surface and Ella takes on greedy developers, school boards and national tabloids. But can she save not just her home, her school and her brother, but also the reputation of the man she’s never been able to forget? And, more importantly, does she want to?

Holding Out for a Hero is a quirky, heartwarming tale of unlikely romance, friendship and family.


I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of this novel from the Publisher and absolutely  loved it. It’s a quick and fun read. In honour of it’s recent release, I’m offering up an e-copy of this book to one lucky reader.

To enter this give-away simply leave a comment below telling me about you’re favourite summer reads. Perhaps it’s a book you’ve read before, or maybe one your not so patiently waiting to get your hands on?

Competition closes Wednesday October 23, with the winner announced Thursday October 24 2013. Entries are open internationally.

Good Luck and remember to check back next week to see if you’ve won and what else might be on offer 🙂
