Contest: win a signed copy of Jo Davis' "Trial By Fire"
If you've read my blog lately, then you know how much I absolutely loved this book. I've decided to have a fun little contest, and with a little help from the author herself, I've come up with an idea that just might land you your very own copy of "Trial By Fire", signed by the delightful Jo Davis.
Here's the plan:
  • I'm going to ask you 3 questions, and if you get at least one of them correct, you will get an entry into the contest.
  • If you get all 3 questions correct, you get 3 entries.
  • In addition, there will be a bonus question (with no right or wrong answer) that will give you another chance to win the book (giving you up to a total of 4 tries).
  • So basically, even if you just answer the fun bonus question, you'll get at least one entry in the drawing to win a copy of the book.
  1. On page 121 of "Trial By Fire", Howard and Kat have sex for the first time, and it's really quite hawt and exciting and erotic. If Jo Davis could live out page 121 with any celebrity on the planet, who would it be?
  2. How many full-length manuscripts did Jo write before she sold?
  3. Which publisher did Jo sell to, and what was the name of her story?
  4. Bonus question: which celebrity would YOU want to live out page 121 with???

('Course if you already own a copy of the book and just want to answer #4, please feel free *g*)

Just leave your responses here in comments, and a winner will be chosen no later than noon CST on Monday, September 1st.

Mark your calendars: Be sure to stop by my pal Michelle Buonfiglio's "Romance B(u)y the Book" on Thursday, September 11th, when Jo will be the special guest blogger, and the Bellas are all very excited about that. You can check out Michelle's thoughts on "Trial By Fire" here.

  1. Mmmm....I have no idea for questions 1-3. I've never read one of her books before, so I'm totally stumped.

    However, if I had to choose someone I'd love to live out that scenario with (yummy shiver), I'd have to choose Richard Armitage (as John Thornton). Can I just say yummy? :)

  2. Since I'm reading the book now -- and loving it (I moved it up on my TBR pile) I think I would answer only the bonus question -- Brian Urlacher of the Chicago Bears. Egads would that make me a Cougar?

  3. Oi. I have no idea about 1-3....number 4? Hm....Jason

  4. 1. George Clooney
    2. 6 manuscripts
    3. Avon
    4. Since Bridget stole my man, I will pick George Clooney again because he is just one sexy older mo fo I want to bite into.

    This looks like an awesome book. I want to meet my own Howard!!

  5. Hello Bridget, Danielle, Tasha, and Katie!

    Come on, gals, Katie made some close guesses!

    Stacy, can I give the ladies a hint? :)

  6. I would join the contest, except after reading your review I'm headed to Borders' this weekend and Trial By Fire is on my instant-gratification list.

  7. My guesses are:

    1. Jon Bon Jovi
    2. Seven
    3. Ellora's Cave - Raina's Fantasy under her alter ego - Jo Carlisle
    4. I would have to go with maybe Bon Jovi

  8. I'd love to win a copy of this book!

    Here are my guesses (though I'm pretty clueless, I must admit).

    1. Brad Pitt?
    2. 8?
    3. NAL, Not sure on title?
    4. Tough one. I'd say Jeffrey Donovan. He's hot and I just love Burn Notice

  9. 1. Jon Bon Jovi

    2. 8

    3. Ellora's Cave-Raina's Fantasy

    4. Brad Pitt

  10. Nice contest. My picks are...

    1. Brad Pitt
    2. four
    3. Harlequin?
    4. David Beckham

  11. Oooohhhh...can I try again? :)

    George Clooney, 8, and Avon

    I'm such a brat! But I still want Richard as John Thornton! :D

  12. 4) it would be wentworth miller from prison break, he is damn hot.

    love firemens!!!

  13. Oooh, these are some great guesses!! Hope everyone is having a nice holiday weekend. :)

  14. Well as soon as my hubster gets home today I'm heading out to buy the book. I'm an instant gratification kind of girl and after both Michelle and Stace blogged so highly about the book I have to get a copy. I can't wait!

  15. I went to Barnes and Noble and they were out! I ordered one though and they do this really cool thing now where they will mail the book straight to your house without having to pay shipping and handling so it will come straight to me and I won't have to go pick it up when it comes. Can't wait to read it.

  16. Trial By Fire is a fantastic read. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

    Jo is a fabulous new romantic suspense author for us all
