Naughty or Nice Giveaway?

I couldn't think of a better way to kick off the month of December than with a giveaway!!  LOL!!!  And neither could my good friend Nora Weston.  As to the answer to that question I am definately..

Nora is here with all the details of this great event!!  I will run it til the 23 and anounce the winner on Christmas Eve!!  You have til then to enter!  Good luck to all of you!!  Take it away Nora!

Greetings! Get ready for the holiday season by entering Nora Weston’s
Naughty or Nice GIVEAWAY! Up for grabs is one copy of The Twelfth Paladin,
one copy of Guardian 2632, and one $15.00 gift card. The winner of all three prizes
chooses his/her gift card from either Star Bucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or a Visa Card.
(Books available in e-book or print)

How to enter? It’s easy! I like my protagonists a bit on the naughty know,
seekers of mischief who can’t refuse any opportunity for an adrenaline rush.
Comment on whether you like your protagonists naughty or nice, and feel free to
say who your favorite one is! Please leave your contact info and thanks for entering.

In The Twelfth Paladin, good against evil battles as an angel, demons, and a temptress extraordinaire, named Rachel Darnell, vie for the soul of Jake Cottrell. Jake foolishly dares Hell to burn him. Hell agrees. 
Scarred with angelfire by a rebellious angel, named Micah, Jake Cottrell is sanctioned to become the twelfth paladin in Micah’s supernatural unit of slayers. However, regret abounds as Micah is banished and ordered to protect what he now despises…a human he believes is unworthy of such an honor. Never fear, Jake is a seeker of mischief who soars on a blistering blacktop to escape the wrath of Hell while he transforms into the twelfth paladin.

Is time travel possible? It sure is in Guardian 2632, and Zane Grayson, the most accomplished executive director Guardian TMF has ever seen, is breaking the law…his law against time surfing. Zane has the supreme power to decide which paradoxes in time need altered, or deleted, but he’s frustrated. Something, or someone, is missing from his life.
Time surfing in illegal time zones is the rush Zane can’t live without. As addictive as the Martian dust called kilred, time surfing becomes Zane’s obsession. And knowing full well if caught by the Elite Guardians, he’ll suffer a brutal death by Time Mercs, Zane still dives deep into trouble. Due to time surfing, he discovers a mission, in 2035, left him trapped in Pittsburgh, PA, 1998...a timehole. While in Pittsburgh, Zane strolled into a coffee shop to see the bewitching Julia Emerson. From that point on, his life, in 2632, spirals out of control as he fights to protect what he loves most.

Definitely naughty. Naughty just adds that little extra something that turns my crank. I loved Zak Stark from Cherry Adairs Hush, he would be my perfect example.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jel said...

a mixture of both would be totally adorable! at times it would also be good to have someone naughty, but not too much. but of course he also has to be nice because that would make me like him more :)

thanks :)

Nora Weston said...

Hi! This will be an interesting giveaway since we'll see if the nice guys or the naughty guys get more attention. I do go for the naughty type...BUT he must have a good heart!

Jake Cottrell (The Twelfth Paladin) is a bad boy who learns the hard way he has more to offer to the world than always causing trouble. Zane Grayson (Guardian 2632) is a hottie who breaks the law of 2632...but for the right reasons.

Nikki! GREAT job posting this giveaway. :) You sure do know how to put on a fabulous show!

*miki, mnjcarter, & Jel...thanks for entering.

Jo Anne said...

Great contest.
I like them a little naughty like Kate Daniels and Curran the shape-shifter lion from Ione Andrews books. Happy Holidays!!!

Na said...

I like protagonists to be on the naughty side. I'm thinking along the line of Barrons :)


June M. said...

I would have to say on the naughty side. Right now, I would go with Wraith or Ares from Larissa Ione's books. I just love them!
Happy Holidays!

Well I do lean more to the Naughty but he has to be a good soul underneath that naughtiness . Something like Roarke, Eve Dallas's husband in the "In Death series" by JD Robb. This is a great contest . Both books sound like exciting reads. Thanks for the chance.

The Twelfth Paladin sounds fab!

Hmm, the question, well i'd say not too nice. If they're female they definitely have to have a kick ass attitude going on and no 'damsel in distress', goody goody vibe.
I'm thinking Cat from Jeaniene Frost's 'Halfway to the Grave' she's good but doesn't hesitate it kicking a vamps ass or saying exactly what she doesn't stand for. Way hey for a feisty female lead! lol.
Male- totally bad.

Thanks for sharing this :-)

Jo Anne, June, Na, Carol,& TToria:

So glad to see you've all entered! bring up a good point about female protagonists! My ladies take no :)

This giveaway is going to introduce me to so many interesting characters/authors. Okay, snow is coming down, it is tea time!

Krystal Larson said...

The books look great! I would go with half and half. I don't want too naughty, but too nice is just as bad. edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

Brenda Demko said...

Thanks for the giveaway!I'd say I like a mixture of both. a little bit naughty and a lot of nice! I'm not sure who my favorite is.

In Julie's Opinion said...

I love 'em naughty! Right now I'm reading Dreaming of the Wolf by Terry Spears and Jake Silver is just the right degree of naughty to me! Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway:)

Naughty please!

WildAboutBones said...

I actually like my protagonists a little naughty and nice {wink, wink!} There are too many wonderful protagonists out there to mention them all so I'll just have to go with my namesake, Bones from Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series.
Thanks for the giveaway offer. Any chance of changing the donut gift card to Krispy Kreme ?

I definitely like my protagonists naughty. It's kind of boring when they're nice. Merrideth Gentry from Laura K. Hamilton is definitely naughty. Love that series. Gfc follow as Tanyaw1224

I like mine to be rebellious and out of character in some ways to the era of the book. So Naughty is my answer! :) As for a certain person I couldn't even begin to name just one!

Nora Weston said...

I love the comments! Funny to see Leanne likes her protagonists triple N...naughty. That could be a new rating! Thanks to everyone for entering. Now have a super fantastic Monday!

Csescape said...

I can decide right now, easily! Naughty! :)

Thank you Nikki and Nora for this wonderful giveaway.

I like a mixture of both :)

Unknown said...

I can't take it when they're too nice or too virginal... it just gets on my nerves. It feels fake, I guess. So naughty it is. Or a mix. :) My favorite would have to be ANita Blake. She can be very naughty, but also nice.
thanks for the giveaway!

Hello, everyone! I hope you're all getting holiday shopping done. I'm still working on it...

WildAboutBones: Krispy Kreme donuts...yummy! :) I'm not choosing the winner, but if your name comes up, I'll see if I can get that for you. The website does not offer a $15.00 option, although maybe they are sold in a grocery store where I live. I'll be sure to check! Thanks for entering...

Okay, back to wrapping some presents!

Hi! I agree, MamaElk...naughty is great, but kindhearted is a must too.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to enter, especially since December is a super busy month. :)

Hi there, thank you for the contest!

I like my men naughty -- don't all women? Course deep down we want them to be nice only for us.

The book looks fascinating and who doesn't love an Amazon gift card?

Much luck to you in all future writing endeavors.

Best, Keta

Happy Holidays!

Unknown said...

Definately Naughty ;)
Gotta have s little bit of excitment :)

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Definitely naughty! ;-P

I've been itching to read Twelfth Paladin! Thank you so much for this giveaway!


Gail said...

I vote for the 'naughty';-) What's the fun in being good all the time.
Thanks for the great giveaway.

LadyVampire2u said...

While I like both naughty and nice, I would have to lean towards naughty. I like a little teasing, friction, anticipation. ;)

Thx for the giveaway and Merry Christmas!

VanillaOrchids said...

I think it depends but honestly, naughty tends to be more fun. :) LOL I don't know who my favorite is really.

I think it's awesome though that in Guardian 2632 it's set in Pittsburgh, PA as I live a little ways outside of Pittsburgh and have not read a book set there before.

Thanks for the giveaway!!


Unknown said...

I like variety, but if forced to pick, I'll go with nice. Thanks for the giveaway.

Nora Weston said...

Thanks to everyone who entered! It's time to choose a winner. :) Happy New Year!
