Archive for the ‘A Lady Awakened’ Category

The review website Dear Author is doing book giveaways all this month, and I’m one of the giver-awayers today. You can enter to win one of 5 copies of A Woman Entangled, or one set of audiobooks (one copy of A Lady Awakened and one of A Gentleman Undone) – as well as romantic suspense by Rachel Kall, and Scottish romance by Tarah Scott.

The Woman Entangled giveaway is open to international entries; the audiobook giveaway is US only. I’m not sure for how long the giveaway runs, but it’s not for very long. “A few days” is what the page says.

Go win some books!

Okay, I’m not sure whether there will be any takers for this giveaway, but I figured I’d give it a shot.

I have a handful of foreign-language editions of my two books. To be exact:

5 copies of A Lady Awakened in Spanish

2 copies of A Lady Awakened in German

2 copies of A Lady Awakened in French

4 copies of A Gentleman Undone in Spanish

If you’d like to win any of these, please leave a comment below, and please do specify the title and language of the book(s) you’d like to win. If you’d like to win more than one, you don’t have to leave more than one comment – I’ll count each “want” as a separate entry so you get the right number of chances when I hand the drawing over to random.org.

Please leave a comment by 11:59:59 pm Pacific Time, Friday June 28. This giveaway is open worldwide.

Absolutely no thought or creativity required in comment – “Please enter me in the drawing” is perfect.

My next giveaway: two lucky commenters will each win one copy of A Lady Awakened and one copy of A Gentleman Undone. These are the editions that were published in the UK, by Headline/Eternal Romance. There may be some exotic spellings here and there.

UK editions of A Lady Awakened and A Gentleman Undone

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below by 11:59:59 pm Pacific time on Saturday, June 15. No need to be creative or thoughtful; “I want to win” will do the job.

These books are trade-paperback-sized and more expensive to ship than the mass-market paperbacks, therefore this drawing will be open to US mailing addresses only.

Random.org picks commenters Malgorzata, Lesa Neace, and Jacqueline Watts! Malgorzata, Lesa, and Jacqueline, please email me at cecilia@ceciliagrant.com with a mailing address and I’ll get the books out to you. Everyone else, stay tuned for more giveaways.


My month of housecleaning/giveaways continues! This time, there will be three winners, because I have three leftover Advance Reader Copies (or Advance Reader’s Editions, as my publisher prefers to call them) of my first book, A Lady Awakened.

3 Advance Reader Copies of A Lady Awakened

I don’t know why the books look so beat-up in this picture. They really aren’t. Those white marks on the bottom of the rightmost book are sunlight-glare. I would not give you beat-up books, not even for free.

Leave a comment on this post (anything along the lines of “Please enter me in the drawing”) by 11:59:59 pm Pacific time on Tuesday, June 11 and you’ll be entered to maybe win one of the ARCs. This giveaway, too, is open to readers in all nations.

Random.org has picked commenter Anna M (@helgagrace) as the winner! Anna, please email me at cecilia@ceciliagrant.com with a mailing address, and I’ll get the books out to you.

Everyone else, stay tuned for more giveaways.


Edited 6/1 to add: Sorry about being ambiguous with the ending time/date of the giveaway period! To clarify, you have until 11:59:59 Pacific time on Saturday, June 1 to leave a comment. Not the midnight with which Saturday June 1 begins, the one with which it ends.

With the release of A Woman Entangled less than a month away, I figured it would be a good time to do some giveaways. First up, a complete set of the extant works of Cecilia Grant: one copy of A Lady Awakened and one copy of A Gentleman Undone. Win them, read them over the next few weeks, and by the time A Woman Entangled comes out, you’ll know all about the hero’s two younger siblings.

This giveaway is open to readers worldwide. Leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time Saturday, June 1 to be entered to win.

No substance required in the comments. “Please enter me in the giveaway” will do just fine.

The DABWAHA first-round matchups are set, and to put it bluntly, I’m facing a world of hurt.

A Lady Awakened vs. The Duchess War

A Lady Awakened is up against Courtney Milan’s The Duchess War, and Courtney is an established DABWAHA powerhouse. She’s like Gonzaga basketball: it doesn’t matter where she’s seeded; she is going to be a factor.

A Gentleman Undone vs. A Notorious Countess Confesses

A Gentleman Undone faces Julie Anne Long’s A Notorious Countess Confesses…which was voted Best Romance of 2012 in All About Romance’s reader poll. Not just Best Historical, but Best Romance, period.

So, yeah, I’m facing a good chance of an ignominious early double exit.

But it’s an intriguing and fairly elegant set of matchups! Lady and Duchess both happen to feature some cringeworthy bad sex, and yesterday on Twitter Courtney challenged me to a Bad-Sex-Off. I don’t even know what that is, but I said sure. Because, bad sex? I’m there!

Gentleman and Countess both feature fallen-women heroines who wind up with deeply decent men, which also sets up an interesting duel.

And a whole separate level of intrigue is the fact that my two books are adjacent to each other in the bracket. That means if I win one of my two matchups, I’ll be facing either Duchess or Countess in two consecutive rounds. And if by some crazy chance I should happen to win both, I’d be squaring off against myself in round two. Which would mean some epic, split-personality, Gollum-style trash talking!

So fill out a bracket and vote when the voting starts. Although I couldn’t make this happen in my own bracket, I would love to see Ruthie Knox’s About Last Night meet up with Julie James’s About That Night. Wouldn’t that be an excellent opportunity for chaos?
