Have you been Naughty or Nice this year? Win a $10 Gift Certificate to Samhain Publishing!

I wish this was my tree! But I don't think my hubby or little nuggets would go for it.

Have I been Naughty or Nice this year?  I guess that's a question I'll have to ask the hubby, but I don't kiss and tell so I guess you'll never know. ;) I was going to wait until January to do a giveaway in hopes of getting more followers, but I've decided not to wait until then. I do tend to get very excited about upcoming *possible* events and want to shout them out, but, unfortunately I have to wait to finalize them before I can say anything. So in an effort to get more followers on my blog and of course the holiday season, I've decided to do a giveaway for a chance to win a $10.00 gift card to Samhain Publishing! All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favorite book is and follow my blog. You must do both to be entered in the drawing. The contest ends Tuesday night and the winner will be chosen on Wednesday. 

I think a hot and steamy read (or two or maybe three?) from Samhain will warm you in all the right places this cold wintery season.

Happy Holidays! Oh, and my favorite book is Lover Awakened by J.R. case you wanted to know.

Hi there :) I'm following you now and I couldn't possibly pick a favorite book!! Let's say Tempt Me by the wonderful R.G. Alexander because I have a part in it. :) lol Hope you get lots of new followers!!


Taryn said...

Jennifer, that is one of my most favorite books ever! I've read it quite a few times. Thanks for entering!

Taryn said...

Thanks, Kitty for joining! Ok, now I am so jealous you are in her book! I have the first one in that series but haven't gotten to it yet...but I will very soon now!

kaisquared said...

As I just re-read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn, that would have to be my current favorite. I am a new follower, hope there are many more!

Nice to see the Smutketeers posting!

Alicia said...

Taryn, first of all I can relate with you on several traits. I also have a hard time expressing myself verbally- writing is usually the best way for me. I am kinda shy & it takes me a bit of time to come out of my shell. So I applaud u for coming out of your shell with your blog, etc.

It's hard for me to pick just one fave book, but as of now I would say 'Eternal Love: Black Dagger Brotherhood book 2'. I'll be following your blog now that you've introduced yourself. Happy Holidays!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year...*S*
Gosh it is so hard to think about my favorite book and the authors. I love all the erotic romance genres, and there is such a wide variety to choose from anymore...*S*
But I love almost all the Samhain authors and their so damn good!
But I just finished Beast by Sophie Oak, and Eastern Ambitions by Jane Rylon & Mari Carr. So many. I also love m/m, BDSM and menage many....*S*
Thank you for the giveaway!


Taryn said...

@kaisquared- I read half of that series a few months ago and loved it to the point where I made myself stop to take a break because I didn't want it to end. I hope you enjoy the rest!

@Alicia- I think we are one in the same person. :) I actually have a hard time with writing too, but I've been forcing myself to do it more lately and it's been helping me a little. Glad to see you chose Rhage as your favorite book. I love Z and he is MINE. :)

Taryn said...

Darcy, I did make it a tough question, didn't I? Thanks for entering!

Cathy M said...

Howdy and welcome to the world of blogging. Fellow blogger here. My favorite auhor is Julie Garwood and any of her books are FAB! Her latest release is Ideal Man which came out in August of this year.

Corrina said...

welcome and good luck blogging! :) It takes a while to build an audience, so hang in there.

My current favorite book? Cordelia's Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold. (it's SF Romance, at least to me, but it's shelved in SF.)

Taryn said...

@Cathy- I bought both of her books but haven't read them yet. I hear they are very good though. Only if there were more hours in the day...

@Susan- I've never heard of her before but I will be looking her up. I love finding new authors. Thanks!

@Modokker- I went through a Historical Romance phase and Julie Garwood came highly recommended to me. I ended up buying a few of her books but haven't read them yet. Story of my life.

Thanks for entering, everyone!

Taryn said...

@Modokker- I forgot to mention that I also signed up on Twitter, but I can not for the life of me figure out how to use it, so I will look for your blog. :)

Its hard to pick a favorite book because I have so many but I have to say Archeron is also my all time favorite book. It was such a heartwrenching story. Oh and I love your book tree. Very cool!
new follower too.

I've been far too nice and it's time to be naughty.

Gabrielle Lee said...

Just one book? I will have to go with an oldie. White Fang. I loved this book as a kid and I enjoy going back and rereading it.

Hi, im a new follower and i have 2 favorite books which are Annies Song by:Catherine Anderson and Acheron by:Sherrilyn Kenyon =) Thanks for the giveaway =)

amandakgc said...

Hi Taryn! It's me Amanda! Well, my favorite book of this year, cause I really don't know what my favorite book so far, is...wait for it...Fifty Shades of Grey.

P.S. PICK ME! :)

Taryn said...

@Julie- Somehow I think you're lying and you've been naughty all along. Thanks for coming by!

@Gabrielle- When I chose the question, I thought I was picking an easy one...but I wasn't! I do have more than one favprite book too. How could I not?

@Regina- Acheron seems to a fav of a lot of people. I know it is for me. I have that book in three different copies and one of them signed.

@Amanda- Thanks for coming by! Umm, I think anyone who knows you knows that Fifty is your favorite! LOL I wish I could change my question so I can put the same answer now! LOL That would have been an easier question for people too.

P.S. I aim to please!

Nancy G said...

Hi Taryn, my favorite book of all time has to be Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, but I love all books. I see lots of great ones here, books I have read and enjoyed and some new to me authors and titles. I am a follower.

My favorite book would have to be "My Fair Captain" by J.L. Langley. I must have read it a hundred times and still plan to read it at least a hundred more time.


VampedChik said...

Oh geez that's like the hardest question for me to answer lol. Um.. One of my favorites has always been Dean Koontz's 'Lightning' my mom gave it to me to read when I was like in 3rd grade because I was getting to bored with books for my age and even older. I've always loved it. Thanks!

Under the Covers said...

Taryn this is such a difficult question to answer!!! OK, since you went with JR Ward, I'll do the same because I love this book: Lover Mine by JR Ward! Congrats on your first giveaway! And I'm following as Under The Covers Book Blog.


Taryn said...

Thanks, Francesca! I honestly had no idea it was going to be such a hard question! I guess if I really think about it then it is....

I love hearing everyone's favorite book! There are some authors I've never heard of and can't wait to check them out.

cocantu81 said...

Where to start, which book to choose....I would have to say The Ring by Danielle Steel. Best read of all time. I'm Amanda's sister :)

Cylver said...

Hi Taryn! It's me, Sylvie!
Have I been naughty or nice? Well, I suppose nice by default, since I haven't really had an opportunity to be naughty in quite a while. Poor, pitiful me!
But, about books...I have way too many favorites to list them all here (right there with you about the Fifty Shades - yum!) but my all-time favorite is probably The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. It's a retelling of the King Arthur legend told from the point of view of the women in the story, especially Morgaine, and it's a real eye-opener.

Liz said...

I joined and one of my favorite books is Christine Feehan's Dark Prince it was her first and I've read and still have every book she's written

Brenda Hyde said...

That's always a hard question because I love so many books. I'm going to say Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. I've read it at least 4 times now!

Nursey Librarian said...

My favorite book is I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb because I am always on the hunt for novels about TWINS and this novel is by far one of THE best books about twins. Wally captured the bond between twins so beautifully and realistically even though he is not a twin, and I would know because I am a twin. I have recommended this book to many others because it is AWESOME!

Tiffany S. said...

Taryn just wanted to let you know I am Tiffany S. and I follow you on Goodreads...I had my username as NURSEY LIBRARIAN (above) but I didn't think you would know who I was so I tried to adjust the name but it didn't appear on my comment :)

Kristina @Kristina's Paranormal Books said...

I am a follower..and to be completely honest i have a hard time deciding what my favorite book is..I love ALL of the Black Dagger Brotherhood books..but if I had to choose one from the series it would be Dark Lover :)
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

June M. said...

Hi Tayrn! I can relate to being a lurker. I am very shy too and have been thinking about starting a blog but I am not sure of my review skills so I haven't yet. Also, I tend to not like to critize so I don't know if I can give low reviews, lol.

Anyway, there is no way I can pick a favorite book. There are so many that I love for various reasons. However, one of my faves from this year is ETERNAL RIDER by Larissa Ione. It was my first book of hers, and was so great that I had to go back and read all the Demonica series too. I am now a huge fan of Larissa!

Thank you so much for the great giveaway! I am a new follower (GFC: June M.)

Taryn, by the way I like everything but fantasy.

Taryn said...

Hey J,

You can follow or join this group to the right of these posts. It should have a number right next to where it says 'follow' or 'join this group'. I hope that helps. :)

I like everything but fantasy too. I've read a few of them and they do nothing for me.

Taryn said...


I forgot to mention that if you want to see more of what I've written, all you have to do is scroll down the page to see and click the pages prior too. Thanks!

Elizabeth M said...

Hey, Taryn! Fun giveaway! Nice blog, as well:) I just followed you here as EsmeCleo.

My favorite book has been a tie this past year between Lover Awakened and Shadowfever (by KMM). I adore both equally, just in different ways. Z is just so beautiful, even as damaged as he was. Barrons, from Shadowfever (Fever series)........well, er, I want to straddle him and do *very* dirty things!!! LMAO!

Taryn, I wish you and your hubby and your little nuggets a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! See you around GR!

Elizabeth from GR;)

RiN - Your Zany PNR Addict said...

Oh WoW Taryn you know I could be hear ALL DAY listing my favorites but right know I would have to go with Shayla Black's Belong to Me or Chloe Neill's Drink Deep. I think your blog is stellar so I will gladly follow and your contest is just as awesome! Hope you, the hubby and wee nuggets have a splended holiday.
