So, I was just sitting here reading other lovely review blogs when I get an email from an author. Not just any author but GENA SHOWALTER! One of my most favorite authors.
She’s an amazing story teller. She builds awesome worlds and writes a mean love scene.
She’s so awesome and thinks I’m awesome that she’s sending me a copy of Deep Kiss of Winter by her and Kresley Cole, SIGNED by both her and Kresley! How cool is that!?!
I’m super excited! I almost purchased a copy from Davis-Kidd who is having copies signed and shipped to you! It’s a bit pricey but some would justify it as worth it. (I’m on a budget and unemployed!) Orders must be submitted before October 15th.
Total cost for book, tax & shipping within the Continental U.S. is $32.76.
There are also some contests where you can enter and win a copy! See Gena’s “Win Deep Kiss of Winter” blog post for the details.
Or you can just order a copy on Amazon.com with out the super awesome signatures. Lame, I know, but worth it any way.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
delivers a breathtaking tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time...and a Valkyrie aching to be touched.
Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela the Ice Maiden -- the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and her freezing skin can't be touched by anyone but her own kind without inflicting pain beyond measure. Soon desperate for closeness, in an agony of frustration, Murdoch and Danii will do anything to have each other. Together, can they find the key that will finally allow them to slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?
NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
puts a daring spin on a tale of huntress and hunted...and concocts a sensual chemistry that is positively explosive.
Aleaha Love can be anyone -- literally. With only skin-to-skin contact, she can change her appearance, assume any identity. Her newest identity switch has made her an AIR (alien investigation and removal) agent and sends her on a mission to capture a group of otherworldly warriors. Only she becomes the captured. Breean, a golden-skinned commander known for his iron will who is at once dangerous and soul-shatteringly seductive, threatens her new life. Because for the first time, Aleaha only wants to be herself....
I can’t wait to read this! I’m guessing Kresley’s story will be first but I plan to read Gena’s first. Or should I save the best for last?

Here’s a slideshow of Gena’s books. There are some that aren’t on here because there isn’t cover art so check out Gena on Amazon.com. My favorite book of hers is The Vampire’s Bride. It’s book 4 of her Atlantis series but it’s amazing.
I’ll let you know what I think when I’m doing with it!
