Valentine's Day Contest!

Happy Valentine's Day weekend and happy three day weekend (President's Day) for all of our US readers!

Since it's the weekend of love, I thought it would be great to have a contest for a few YA romance books. Just leave a comment by Monday, February 15 at 10am PST telling us why you deserve a little romance in your life!

I will pick and post two winners on Wednesday! Good luck.

Here are the books that are up for grabs (the two winners will pick which they would like, first come, first serve).

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles:
(From When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more. In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.

Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey (ARC):
(From The undead can really screw up your senior year . . .

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancĂ©. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

Evermore by Alyson Noel:

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's entire life story by touch. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen.

Damen Auguste is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head—wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can see straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. She has no idea just who he really is—or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

I deserve a little romance in my life because I had spent so much time being a mother and taking care of others that it would be nice to be reminded of what it's like to be courted and romanced again.

Happy Valentine's Day.

I deserve a little romance after this hell blown snow storm we've been having! I need to stretch my legs and flirt with the world a litter. Besides Chinese New Year is coming up (as in tomorrow along with V-Day)so a new lunar year means a new romance (ohlalala ;P)

I deserve a little romance because although I'm pretty practical & would never ask for extravagant gifts like diamonds or a trip to Paris, every girl loves to feel spoiled sometimes. Even simple & cheesy can be romantic and thoughtful, like a chocolate rose & a gift certificate to the garden center in honor of watching our love continue to bloom and grow. <3

Happy Valentine's Day! (And Happy Chinese New Year! And Happy President's Day! This is one super celebratory weekend!) :)

I deserve a little romance in my life because I've been so focused on other things that I've missed some great things and I think a little romance would balance it all.
