Play & win! Contest for Jill Shalvis' Double Play & Slow Heat
























These two books are some of Jill Shalvis' best work, as far as I'm concerned. I really liked both of them, and thought hey, I bet you would too. So I am having a contest for one random winner to get a copy of BOTH books. Believe me, if you've never read a Shalvis book, now is your chance, because they are awesome. Baseball, sexy men, likeable & smart heroines, sexy men, humor, emotion and oh yeah, SEXY men.

Contest ends Monday, February 15th, at 2pm CST.

In order to be entered into the drawing, you must answer at least 2 of the following questions:


  • What is your favorite sports movie?


  • What is your favorite sports team?


  • What sport do you/did you play?


  • If you could play any sport, what would it be?


  • Have you ever met a sports figure and if so, who?


  • Who is your favorite or who do you think is the cutest sports figure?


  • Do sports figures make too much money?

One entry per person, so answering more questions will not increase the number of chances. So please, just choose the questions you want to answer and have fun with it. GOOD LUCK!

  5. I seem to be drawn to hockey movies, I've liked all of the ones I've seen. I think Slapshot was the 1st of the movies I saw. I just happen to like the hockey team in my town the best too. We call ourselves Hockeytown and we love fighting and winning Stanley. My team is the RedWings!! I do think athletes are over paid. They get in so much trouble and sometimes I wonder if it isn't from the money. I love Jill Shalvis and I would love to win her books. Thanks, Sue

  8. Since the Olmpics is starting I have images of one of my favorite movies in general, but has the wonderful sport of figure skating (and a few moments of hockey) as its premise.....The Cutting Edge. Such great chemistry between the two leads.

    And since I'm from Nebraska, I'd be yelled at if I didn't say the Nebraska Cornhuskers are my favorite sports team.

  15. My favorite sports movie is "Youngblood." My favorite sports team is the NY Yankees. I didn't actually meet him, but I saw Julius Erving shopping at Tiffany's.


  16. Great contest and I would love to win this series!

    I use to be on the track and field team and in gymnastics.

    I would love to play tennis!

    Do sports figures make too much money? Yes way too much!


  17. Hmm...

    I'm completely non-athletic, so I haven't played anything properly (I'm not sure that getting whacked in the face with basketballs, softballs, dodgeballs, etc. count!)

    And since the Winter Olympics have just started, I admit that I looooove watching figure skating--I would love to be able to figure skate, or better, pairs skate!

    I do think that the top handful of athletes are probably too well paid, but I also tend to believe that the top movie stars and other celebrities are overly well compensated...

    Thanks for the contest--Jill's books are fantastic!


  18. What is your favorite sports movie?
    I've got a few on the tip of my tongue...Of course...ppffff, I've seen it like 3 days ago LOL COOL RUNNING, I just love the humor of a Jamaican bobsled team...and the quote; Sanka man, are you dead....ya man LOL

    What is your favorite sports team?
    My dad ingrained me with the love for Ajax (soccer team in the Netherlands & the love for our national Dutch soccer team)

    What sport do you/did you play?
    I went to two kind of gymnastics which I don't know the translation of :(

    If you could play any sport, what would it be?
    Zumba, if that is actually a sport LOL I love the combination of dance and arobics :)

    Have you ever met a sports figure and if so, who?
    I've met Soccer team Manchester united on a boat, and i was oblivious to it at the time. I just saw a hunky guy and flirted with him. Later on as I watched the soccer match i said to my dad...well actually nothing, I was sixteen at the time and he was like 20 I believe LOL

    Thanks for the contest...I really, really want to read these!

    Yes professional major league players make too much money.

    Never met a sports figure.


  23. Favorite movie--Bull Durham, but I love all of Kevin Costner's sports movies.
    Favorite sports figure--Peyton Manning. He has been my secret boyfriend for about 4 or 5 years now, but we try to be very discreet. Well, all my sixth-graders know, so...
    I played volleyball when I was young and even played in college back in the 70's, but alas, my ass is too broad to do too much now.
    What a sweet contest!


  24. My favorite movie is Bull Durham and sports team is The Michigan Wolverines! I enjoy Jill's Books and love her blog! tWarner419@aol.com


  25. Love, love LOVE baseball!

    My fav team is the Boston Red Sox.
    So I think the cutest on that team is Mike Lowell.
    And Oh yes, sports figures make way too much money. Back in the 20's and 30's, baseball players made 3 times the working man's wage, now it is off the charts.
    Fav movie? 'Eight Men Out'


  26. If you could play any sport, what would it be? Archery, fencing, sharp shooting, karate... you seeing the theme!? I would want to kick butt :)

    Do sports figures make too much money? The most definitely do. I whole heartily agree with wage caps. Teams should not be able to BUY a win.

  30. Love Jill's books.

    I met pitcher Mark Mulder at a meet and greet years ago when he played for the Oakland A's.

    I do think that sports figures make too much money. It's really mind-boggling how much they make.

    Yes, they all make way too much money!!!

    I would love to be able to do any sport. I've tried tennis and skiing but am horrible at it. Ice skating is my favorite one to watch!

    I met a Pgh. Pirates baseball player once but it was so long ago I can't even remember his name but he was extremely cute :)

  38. Do sports figures make too much money? Yes
    What is your favorite sports movie? A League of Their Own.
    Thanks for holding this contest! augustlily06(at)aim(dot)com.


  39. My favorite sports movie is Remember The Titans.
    My favorite sports team is the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team.


  40. I'm terribly unathletic, but if I could play any sport, it would be soccer. Those players need such stamina, and I'd get the benefit of having great legs! lol

    I think the majority of sports figures don't make much, but the gap between them and the "superstars" is quite shocking.


  41. Mollie, I did not know that about buckeyes. Thanx for the heads-up LOL.

    Joder, I LOVE The Cutting Edge. The chemistry is wonderful. It's like a movie of a good romance novel :)

    Great answers, and you're reminding me of some of my favorite movies that I think I might need to re-watch :)
