Welcome Author Laura Kaye

A Publication Anniversary Game/Giveaway Celebration!

Chocolate-cupcakes-Photos-1

Thanks so much to You Gotta Read Reviews for hosting me here today for my Publication Anniversary Giveaway! I’ve got TWO anniversaries to celebrate! My contemporary romance, Hearts in Darkness, is celebrating its three-month anniversary, while my paranormal romance, Forever Freed, is celebrating its two-month anniversary. In, well, CELEBRATION, I thought we could play a little game to qualify you for the two-fer giveaway I’m offering.

Here’s the deal: answer the following questions and get at least 5/6 correct, and you’re entered to win your choice of one of these two ebooks in pdf format. I’m picking TWO winners, so there are lots of chances to walk away with a brand-spanking-new free book! Answer the questions and number them 1 – 6 in the comments to this blog post. I’m not worried about y’all cheating, because you’ll only KNOW you’ve got the right answers if you’ve go do your homework on your own (and, because this is just for fun!)!

Post your answers and your email address in the comments:

1) Hearts in Darkness features a quote by which classic author?

Answer: http://www.laurakayeauthor.com/hearts.html

2) What food is Forever Freed’s Samantha eating that gets her in some playful trouble with Lucien?

Answer: http://www.laurakayeauthor.com/foreverfreed.html

3) What is the name of Samantha’s daughter in Forever Freed?

Answer: http://laurakayeauthor.blogspot.com/p/trading-cards.html

4) How many five-star reviews does Hearts in Darkness have on amazon?

Answer: http://www.amazon.com/Hearts-In-Darkness-ebook/dp/B004XJ4WK8/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1

5) What is the “Hunt for a Kindle” secret word on Laura’s blog site?

Answer: http://laurakayeauthor.blogspot.com/p/reviews.html

[Woot! Knowing this gives you 1/12 of the answers you need to enter to win a Kindle—see the details here: http://www.digibookscafe.com/index.php?main_page=page&id=9]

6) How many five-star reviews does Forever Freed have on amazon, and what % of the reviews are 5-star?

Answer: http://www.amazon.com/Forever-Freed-ebook/dp/B0051BJ0CM/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_2

Did you get them all? I sure hope so! Leave me your answers and I’ll be back throughout the day to cheer you on and share virtual chocolate cupcakes! You can’t have a party without them, you know!

Thanks for playing along,

Laura Kaye

Hot, Heartfelt Romance – Because everyone longs to belong…

Laura Kaye is a multi-published author of paranormal, contemporary, and erotic romance with five titles releasing in 2011.

Happy 3-month anniversary, Hearts in Darkness:KayeHeartsinDarkness

Two strangers. Four hours. One pitch-black elevator.

Makenna James thinks her day can't get any worse, until she finds herself stuck in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call and juggling too much stuff, the pin-striped accountant caught only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights went out.
Caden Grayson is amused when a redhead literally falls at his feet. His amusement turns to panic when the power fails. Despite his piercings, tats, and vicious scar, he's terrified of the dark and confined spaces. Now, he's trapped in his own worst nightmare.
To fight fear, they must both reach out and open up. With no preconceived notions based on looks to hold them back, they discover just how much they have in common. In the warming darkness, attraction grows and sparks fly, but will they feel the same when the lights come back on?

Happy 2-month anniversary, Forever Freed:

KayeForeverFreed

A heart can break, even one that no longer beats.
I stalk my new neighbors, a single mother and her child, drawn by the irresistible scent of their joy and love. I crave their blood, starved for some healing respite from my ancient grief. Now to lure them into my grasp.
But they surprise me. Little Olivia accepts me without fear or reservation--talking, smiling, offering innocent affection that tugs at my long-lost humanity. Her mother, Samantha, seeks me out when she should stay away, offering sweet friendship, and calling to the forgotten man within me. They lure me instead.
Ah, Dio, Lucien, run and spare them while you can...
