Book Giveaway: Chosen by Desire by Kate Perry [CONTEST CLOSED]

Many thanks to the Hatchette Book Group for providing five copies of Kate Perry’s new paranormal romance novel, Chosen by Desire (Guardians of Destiny), for me to give away!

Chosen By Desire

It’s down to the wire and Carrie Woods is leaving China without the proof she needs for her thesis: Wei Lin’s journal. While on a final tour of the monastery, Carrie finally locates the scrolls and attempts to photograph the documents. Caught in a sticky situation, Carrie takes the scrolls, only to notice a mysterious monk watching her–the same monk that she’s seen each time she’s taken a tour. Unable to return the scrolls, she travels back to California and isn’t too thrilled when she notices the monk at the airport.

Maximillian Prescott first came to the monastery as an orphaned teenager when he inherited the Book of Metal from a distant uncle he hardly knew. After spotting a woman stealing from the monastery, he follows her to get back the documents he knows she’s stolen. Max is further intrigued when he finds out that the chatty woman is friends with his archrival, Rhys Llewellyn, and he will stop at nothing to get back everything he’s lost.

  1. hmmm – that one sounds like a juicy novel. Ok – I’ll bite.
    And see? May is purrfectly content being the headliner!(alebit it a bit grouchy while sleeping)

  2. Is it just me or is Maximillian one of those almost standard romance novel names? I’m trying to remember if I have ever met a Maximillian or even seen the name in something outside of romance novels and am coming blank.

    (I remember reading a vampire novel for review and wanting to bang my head against the wall, because the author had decided that every name had to mean something. It was like a train wreck. A super angsty train wreck.)

  3. Sounds interesting. On the other hand, I agree with Seanna about the names. Though – I’m much more used to the name Rhys (or Llewellyn, for that matter) than Maximillian. Different sub-genres, perhaps?

  4. I think Mayhem is dreaming that you buy her pink, furry pillows to sleep on. Perhaps with a feathery pink blanket to sleep under.

  5. Awwww how cute! My puppy does the same thing. Sleeps in the weirdest positions,lol! Gotta love them though!
    I have this book… ***whishpering so the pile does not hear me*** in the TBR monster of a pile!!
    I hope you are having a great day honey!

  6. Mayhem looks so comfy in that picture. Kinda making me sleepy now too.

    Anyhoo, please count me in for the contest. The synopsis sounds super good.

  7. Kitties get so little sleep and here you go putting the camera in May’s face and probably doing the flashy thing too. 🙂

  8. Sounds like an interesting book. I don’t think I have read a book with a monk as the hero.

    Mayhem is a cutie. Phantom (my foster kitten) is sprawled out in my lap now.

  9. This author is new to me, but the book sounds interesting. Please toss my name into the hat. Thanks!
