Midweek EBook Giveaway!

As readers on this blog probably already know, I’m always on the lookout for an unusual (or at least under-utilitized) historical setting. And I would love to see some 20th century historicals! I’ve enjoyed Carrie Lofty’s books ever since I reviewed her debut novel, and her latest book, His Very Own Girl, promises to be a wonderful read.

Set during WWII, this book tells the story of of Lulu Davies, a British civilian pilot with the Air Transport Auxiliary, who has already lost her parents and her fiance to the war. She throws herself into her flying, but there is an American medic who is going to turn her world upside down. That would be Joe Weber, a medic assigned to the 82nd Airborne and stationed in England. The two have an intense romance in the days leading up to D-Day. If you haven’t read Carrie Lofty before, I personally think she tells a good story, and you can find an excerpt from His Very Own Girl here. Though I will warn you, that once you start reading, you just may end up buying!

Or, as you may have guessed from the blog title this morning, Pocket Books has generously provided a copy of His Very Own Girl for us to give away. Details are at the bottom of this post!

Are you more of a paranormal fan? Then you may want to pay attention to this one. In addition to Carrie Lofty’s latest historical, Pocket Books has also provided us with a giveaway copy of Lifestyles of the Rich and Undead, a recent release in Katie MacAlister’s Dark Ones series.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Undead is a short story featuring an interview with vampire Grayson Soucek, and is meant to serve as a prologue to MacAlister’s novella in the October 2012 anthology The Undead in my Bed. If you’re curious, you can enter the contest below, or you can find the story for purchase on Simon & Schuster’s website.

    Carrie Lofty! This has been on my wishlist!!!

  14. Fay says:

    This is super exciting! Earlier this year, I read UNBROKEN by Laura Hillenbrand and was caught in a quest to read more about WWII. It is an “everyone has to read this” book, but personally I wished it had a little more romance in it :).
    So, YAY, to Carrie Lofty for writing a WWII romance! Please put me in for the drawing for HIS VERY OWN GIRL! If I don’t win, I will buy it for my new Kindle paperwhite (though the darn thing is still on backorder).

    My choice would be Carrie Lofty’s book – I’m currently watching the Foyle’s War dvds and this book fits the time frame.

  22. Anna says:

    Carrie Lofty’s book setting reminds me of Suzanne Brockmann’s cameos in many of her books where the secondary romantic story takes place during the WWII. I loved those stories almost more than the leading hero and heroine. It would be lovely to read Carrie Lofty!

  23. Lily says:

    Would love the chance to check out either book. Fingers crossed for a win!

  24. Pam says:

    I would love a chance to win either title. I’ve never read a WWII romance so it would definitely be an experience to look forward to.

  25. Mark says:

    I’ve been keeping up with the MacAlister series, but I hadn’t even heard of this short standalone. Is there any single site you can recommend that lists all ebook releases?

  26. Liz says:

    I’d love to win a copy of the Lofty book! I’m always looking for historical romances with different settings/time periods too!
