Spring Fever Reads Giveaway Event - Over 40 ebooks and a Kindle Fire! #SpringReads



Welcome to my tiny part of the Spring Fever Reads Giveaway Event (April 12th - 13th, 2013)!

I recently found myself in a chat with a group of like-minded authors. We asked ourselves: what can we do to celebrate spring with our readers? And that is how the idea for the Spring Fever Reads Giveaway was born. We are over 30 authors giving away a ton of great prizes. Keep reading to find out what they are!

Portrait of Our Marriage by Martha Emms: Nicky led a sheltered life until she met Brett: An adventurous, handsome, smart, and exciting lover. She had never known this kind of love before, either emotionally or physically. She pictured her life with Brett as a partner, a friend, and a father to her future children. And when they married, Nicky knew she had found everything her heart and body desired.

But when Brett’s fantasy world of racy magazines, explicit videos, and disturbing internet porn becomes an obsession and affects their marriage, Nicky has to ask herself: What happened to the man I married?

Portrait of Our Marriage is the story of one woman’s journey.


The Unseen Promise: The Tarkeenia Saga (Book One) by Ellen Mae Franklin: Set on the world Tarkeenia, this story marks the struggle between god and man, magic and indefinable evil. Monsters walk the shadows and the tip of balance between dark and light, good and evil. Even on a good day, living is tenuous.

Strangers become friends, uneasy alliances are tainted by betrayal and self gain. Unlikely heroes salvage what they can, in a world on the brink of chaos.

Flesh eating Specks, turn the living to dust, Murrdocks and Dwarves, Benzines and Magi all strive to make do in a world bubbling with wild magic. Will Tarkeenia survive the tug and pull of the very spoilt and the very wicked? Will those lost to the dark, find a way back to the light? Is it possible to forget, or forgive and begin again? All these questions and more are answered in this first book, as the reader walks Tarkeenia’s many paths.

The Mistaken by Nancy S. Thompson: Tyler Karras wants only two things: to avenge his wife’s death and free his brother from the Russian Mafia. When one provides means for the other, he jumps on the opportunity, pledging the woman who destroyed his family as payment for his brother’s debt. But when Ty mistakenly targets the wrong woman, he’s forced to protect them all from the very enemy’s he’s unleashed, because with the Russian Mafia, even two out of three makes for very long odds.






Sophie's Turn by Nicky Wells: One fine day in Paris, Sophie Penhalligan suddenly finds herself engaged to her teenage crush and love-of-her-life-from-a-distance, rock singer and star extraordinaire Dan Hunter. But there is the small matter of her very recent, but very prior, engagement to Tim. Reliable, honest, trusting Tim, her boyfriend of two years stashed away safely in his mews house in South Kensington while Sophie is drinking rather too much champagne with Dan in Paris. This contemporary romantic fairy tale describes how Sophie gets into her impossible situation and how she turns it around.





The Great Rite of the Golden Coven by Ashen White: Uncover the ancient secrets of a true Romany Chohawni coven as they undertake the most special Great Rite of their lives! Guided by a mysterious and legendary Dark Grimoire, join them as they learn the true jinnepen (wisdom) of their Romany way, and understand what it really means to be gueri!

  17. The book is The Mistaken. It has that suspense thriller element in the story.

    The Kindle Fire would make my life so simple by having all of my ebooks accessible and to be able to check my email messages from time to time without worrying that I might missed a message especially in places where they have to be off.

  21. But it's always wise to check in with a doctor before you start using a supplement regularly. One last thing that isn't mandatory but recommended is to set up a Pay - Pal account to process your payments.
    Smoking can affect your health and fitness since it affects all the bodily functions and damages vocal cords and skin.

  24. How would the Kindle fire improve my life? I'm not sure a material item would vastly "improve" my life, but it would make reading easier. I certainly can't afford one right now. It would be nice to read on the go, and not at a computer!
