Gift Basket Up For Auction

If you’re interested in helping raise some money for Brenda Novak’s Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund perhaps you might be interested in the gift basket I donated to the cause. It’s a $150 value.

I donated a lovely picnic basket that’s designed for a romantic picnic with your significant other. We’re talking wine glasses and napkins tucked inside a lovely wicker basket. Inside this basket are print copies of Obsession, Forbidden Pleasures, The Art Of Pleasure; Shunga massage cream, Shunga massage oil and Shunga sweet-tasting honey dust. BONUS: You will be one of the first to receive a signed unedited ARC of MIRAGE, my October 2007 release by Samhain Publishing. The value of this prize basket is $150

You can view the Video Trailer of Mirage here and click on the Video Trailer link (Dialup users be warned that it might take some time to load.)

So come on out and support a great cause. The entire auction will be over in about 12 hours (close of the day 5/31), so you’ll need to move fast to bid on those last minute items. Click here to bid!


I’ve got a new contest starting up tomorrow! The contest runs from June 1, 2007 through July 15, 2007. The prize package is great. The winner will receive a terrific looking TOR Romance tote bag filled with the following books:

  • Abundance a Novel of Marie Antoinette
  • Meg Cabot’s Size 14 Is Not Fat Either
  • Mary Reed McCall’s Sinful Pleasures
  • Lorraine Heath’s Promise Me Forever; and
  • Karen Marie Moning’s DarkFever in hardcover
  • PLUS some scented candles and a bottle of chocolate paint for a romantic night with that significant other.

So when you’ve finished one of these great books, you can look forward to a romantic interlude with your significant other.

  2. >I was the lucky bidder/winner of the gift basket that you donated. It came in the mail today and I had more fun than Christmas morning! What fun and romantic gifts! And, just in time for me to celebrate my 29th wedding anniversary too. I’m so looking forward to reading your books ~ they are gorgeous! I also love the little TBR/2buy notepad with pen.
