I Received A BLOG AWARD!!!

January 10, 2009

So I haven’t even been in the blogging world for 2 weeks yet and I’ve received an award! How cool is that! I about fell out of my chair when I saw it! Okay, so maybe I’m a little too excited, but what the heck! Why not! 😀

The Premio Dardas Award 


I received the Premio Dardas Award from Ruthie of Ruthie’s Book Reviews! Thank you so much Ruthie! Ruthie’s Book Reviews is a fairly new blog to me, but it’s also a favorite. She has such a fun blog and I love her reviews and how she has a music player (you all know how much I love music).  🙂

So now to spread the love!

This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his/her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values every day.

The rules to follow are:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person that has granted the award and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to other 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

So here are the blogs that I have chosen to pass this award onto:

The Page Flipper

Shooting Stars Mag

The Story Siren

Lady Vampire’s Lair

Romance Bandits

Joey W. Hill’s Blog

I Do Not Want To Wait, I Want The Book Now

Amberkatze’s Book Blog

Jennifer’s Random Musings

Romance Vagabonds

And Another Book Read…

The Book Czar

A Passion for Books

RR(at)H Novel Thoughts & Book Talk

There are still so many other blogs that I know and love that deserve this award as well! Sorry I couldn’t give it to everyone!

Now it’s time for the surprise I promised….


I’ll be giving away a SIGNED copy of Untouched by Anna Campbell!!!


“I am many things,” Lord Sheene said. “Kind is not one of them.”

“Beautiful Grace Paget has no reason to doubt these words.  After all, she was kidnapped, spirited away to a remote country manor, and told she is to grant this man his every desire… or lose her life. But Grace is no common trollop. So she risks everything to save her virtue by planning a daring escape, even though she finds herself tempted by this dangerously handsome man. There is something in his eyes that makes her wonder if he is not as cruel as he would have her believe…

Sheene knew nothing of the plan to bring him this woman.  Locked up as a prisoner, called “mad” by all of society, he will do anything to reclaim his life, and Grace’s sensuous beauty has distracted him from his goals. And although he finds her irresistible, he is horrified to hold her against her will. Now, together, they must both revolt against the strange set of circumstances that have forced them together – for only then will Grace truly surrender to him… forever.”
