Canadian Giveaway - "Lover Mine" by J.R. Ward

OK listen up my fellow Canadians. I have FIVE copies of a very hot item for giveaway that many of you have been eagerly anticipating - Lover Mine by J.R. Ward. As always, many thanks to the fabulous folks at Penguin Canada for the promotion. I read Lover Mine a week or so ago and it was one of the best of the series to date. John Matthew and Xhex. Rowr.

To enter just tell me who your favourite Brother and/or couple are. Remember you must have a Canadian address to send to. Leave a way to contact you and do the usual blogging thing for an extra entry. Giveaway closes May 10 at Midnight EDT. Here's some extra details about the book, but I am guessing you know this stuff already.

The latest in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series…

Lover MINE
A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood
“…the fast pace and cliffhanger ending will have fans wishing they could start the next book right away."—Publishers Weekly on Lover Avenged
J.R. Ward has skyrocketed to the top of the paranormal romance genre with her smart and wickedly sexy twist on vampire fiction, her novels of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.  Indeed, her gritty tales of a modern-day war between vampires and their hunters, told through the eyes of the battle-hardened, super-human, vampire warriors of the Brotherhood, have not only gained Ward a dedicated legion of fans, but have propelled her to the top of The New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. 

Last year J.R. Ward made her hardcover debut with Lover Avenged, which landed at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.  Now she continues the series with LOVER MINE (New American Library; May 1, 2010; $32.50).

LOVER MINE is the book that Ward’s readers have been waiting for!  The story centers on John Matthew, once a scrawny teenager living on his own and just trying to survive, his true vampire nature has since been revealed and he’s grown into a powerful warrior—a member of The Brotherhood.  Now John Matthew and the rest of the Brothers will learn even more about his true history and identity.  At the same time, Xhex, the tough-as-nails head of security at the Sub Zero nightclub is discovering some things about herself too.  She’s had an attraction to John Matthew since she spotted him drinking with friends at the club a while back—an attraction that she’s gone to great lengths to ignore.  But fate has other plans for Xhex and the time has come for her to find love.

LOVER MINE is the eighth installment in a series that Publishers Weekly calls “frighteningly addictive” and Booklist called “raw, gritty…genre-bending.”  Fans of paranormal romance as well as anyone who enjoys a good story with a supernatural twist will not want to miss out on the latest from J.R. Ward!
“…these erotic paranormals are well worth it, and frighteningly addictive…The book is fully committed to its urban sensibility, the vampires' rarified language (a glossary is provided) and their revved-up sex drives, and it all works to great, page-turning effect …In just two years, the first three books in the series have earned Ward an Anne Rice-style following, deservedly so; this entry should prove no less popular.” —Publishers Weekly on Lover Revealed

“Ward wields a commanding voice perfect for the genre, and readers new to the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood should hold on tight for an intriguing, adrenaline-pumping ride featuring a race of warrior vampires who fill enemies with terror and women with desire. Like any good thrill ride, the pace changes with a tender story of survival and hope and leaves readers begging for more.” —Booklist on Lover Eternal

“Not for the faint of heart…this genre-bending third novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, following Lover Eternal (2006), is a perfect fit for those who like fast-paced urban fantasy rich in both fury and poignancy.” —Booklist « starred review on Lover Awakened
J.R. Ward is a graduate of Smith College who currently lives in Kentucky.  Before turning to writing full time, she worked as a lawyer in Boston and also spent many years working as Chief of Staff of one of the premier academic medical centers in the nation.  In addition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series she launched another series, The Fallen Angels with Covet in October 2009.  Visit her popular website and fan community at www.jrward.com

  10. O.M.G.! Dude, you have the BEST events/giveaways! I'd kill for this book!

    Lmao, anywho. My fav couple is most def....Butch & V. I know it's not really official or any thing, but Ward has been so eloquent on her depiction of B&V's connections that its almost a shame they don't end up together!

    Great Series! Thanks for hosting this event!

  28. Oh my! Favourite brother? Rhage... but then there's Butch too. This is a really hard question!
    Although... we've been following John Matthew through so much and he's just really special. So, okay JM it is.

  34. I'm a brotherhood addict. Can't decide between Rhage and Mary or Zsadist and Bella. It's the beauty and the beast archetype. Man, those fairytales hook ya young. But I must agree..in another lifetime Butch and V would have been very interesting...
