Lisarenee | 7659 comments Hi everyone,

Lauren, Sashana, & I have started selecting winners. We will be adding more winners each day. A portion of the winners will be picked at random via a name in hat type drawing. I'll be contacting people who have won over the next 3 to 4 days to get their addresses. I need them by the 21st so I can send them to the publisher. So be checking your inboxes and this topic.

Sincerely,
Lisarenee

Congrats to all the winners.

message 39: by Lisa S (last edited Oct 20, 2010 06:53PM) (new)

Lisa S (kasey_k_fan) Lisarenee said:'Lisa, Would you prefer contemporary or historical? "

Either one. If I'm gonna read romance (shudder) I guess it doesn't really matter.


message 40: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments I'm torn between starting you off with the Wallflowers series or the Hathaway series. Wallflowers proceeds Hathaways and there are some carryover character, but my favorite all time Lisa Kleypas novel is Mine till Midnight. Read the descriptions and see which sounds more to your liking. The first in the Wallflower series is Secrets of a Summer Night. My favorite book in that series is the second book, It Happened One Autumn, but read the first in the series first. It explains how the Wallflowers became friends.


message 41: by Lisa S (new)

Lisa S (kasey_k_fan) I actually did look at Mine Till Midnight.

Thanks Lisarenee

 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* (ladyjayne) | 155 comments Hi Lisa S, Please note that Again The Magic is a sort of "prequel" to the Wallflowers series.

I'd actualy recommend reading the books in chronological order since the characters from Wallflowers, who make cameos in the Hathaway series, particularly in Mine Till Midnight, won't give you the "awww"-feeling, since you won't have known them yet, and won't feel like you are seeing "old friends". Though they can be read as standalones.

If you want to read them in chronological order:

("Prequel" to Wallflowers)
Again The Magic – Note that this is one of her more emotional and angsty books, but I love it!

Wallflowers: - Romantic and humorous - about 4 wallflowers who band together to find husbands.
Secrets of a Summer Night
It Happened One Autumn
Devil in Winter
Scandal in Spring
A Wallflower Christmas

Hathaways: A lovable, eccentric family, who move into a property near one of the Wallflowers.
Mine Till Midnight
Seduce Me at Sunrise
Tempt Me at Twilight
Love in the Afternoon
Married By Morning

Leah (leahkarge) Ugh, so jealous! Congrats to everyone who has won so far, though! :)

 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* (ladyjayne) | 155 comments I can't even enter since I live in Australia. :-( *sniff, sniff* Oh, well....I've already pre-ordered my copy, anyway. CONGRATS to all the winners!!


message 45: by Leah (new)

Leah (leahkarge) Aww, poor Lady Jayne D:


message 46: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments Okay, I'm going to start shutting down some of the topics and start drawing names and looking at the questions and seeing which of those who've submitted questions hasn't yet received a book and which question of those is the best. I'll start posting in a bit.


message 47: by Lisarenee (last edited Oct 20, 2010 10:01PM) (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments For her question to Ms. Kleypas, Kimberly *Kyhm* will win a book. She was the only one who asked a question who hadn't won a book and was entered in the giveaway. Plus, she asked a good question. She is our 19th winner.

Added later:
Thought I'd note I also drew her name from the basket so she was destined to win a book. Of course there is only one book per person.


message 48: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments 20)Fourth winner chosen at random: Rachel (the first of the two Rachels to enter). Congratulations!
