Lauren Smith For paranormal romance fans, Juniper Grove is giving away a copy of Hidden by Shalini Boland.

The author's description of the book, from Juniper Grove's interview;
Hidden (Marchwood Vampire Series) is a paranormal romance that spans the centuries from modern England to 19th century Paris and ancient Cappadocia. The novel begins in gritty urban reality, but soon descends into horror, romance and historical adventure.

Sixteen-year-old Madison Greene is in foster care until one day she inherits a fortune and a house with a cellar full of danger. Eighteen-year-old Alexandre Chevalier lives in 19th century Paris. On an archaeological expedition, he discovers a lost underground city where his life changes forever.

Their lives entwine, but someone is watching and waiting. The story ramps up to an explosive ending.

Woot! This is the first I hear of it and looks like I could be a winner. That's unless there's a doppelganger of me out there...

But not impossible. I actually forgot I had entered this competition. Guess now that I'm not buying so many books, the Universe has found another way to feed my addiction. ;)

Michele Brenton (banana_the_poet) Nine days left for the Goodreads Giveaway of Saturdays Are Gold by Johannesburg author Pierre Van Rooyen.

SIGNED BOOK-PLATED HARDCOVER WITH DUST- JACKET Two children growing up in 1940s South Africa are told to stay away from lonely places because there is a child abductor on the loose. What could possibly go wrong?

Young Maudie doesn’t realise she has a ‘gift’ that seems more like a curse to her brother Tadpole who is the only person aware of it.

If Roald Dahl, Gerald Durrell and Stephen King had teamed up to write a South African version of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ they might have produced something like this.

A moving, exciting, sometimes scary, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny adventure set against a South African backdrop so well described it is almost a character in its own right.

When you finish this book, the first thing you will want to do – is read it again.

http://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/sho...

Open until July 25th
