It was such an exciting experience. My roommate and I went down to the arena to watch Game 4 against the Florida Panthers on a huge projection screen hanging over the ice. When the Avs won, the place exploded. Colorado was in full-on celebration mode. Then we drove back down for the victory parade. Fire engine after fire engine full of hockey players waving at the crowd as music and streamers filled the air. Is it any wonder that I've had a soft spot for hockey ever since?
Today's bonus prize comes from a seriously cool chick who has more pen names than anyone I know: I WAS A NON-BLONDE CHEERLEADER by Kieran Scott and SNOW QUEEN by Emma Harrison (aka Kieran Scott). Here are the blurbs:
New Jersey transplant and sassy brunette Annisa Gobrowski has a problem—everyone at her Florida high school is blonde. If her Jersey attitude didn’t make her stand out enough, her dark pixie cut sure does. At least her new neighbor, uberhot, guitar-playing, football-wrestling-and-track star Daniel Healy makes her feel welcome.
But no lack of golden highlights is going to stop Annisa from making the best of Sand Dune High, especially once she checks out their competition-level cheerleading squad—one that actually appears on ESPN. Yet after a disastrous first day where Annisa accidentally breaks the most popular girl in school’s nose, ticks of Daniel’s girlfriend for even existing and discovers the cheerleaders all hate her, she starts having second thoughts.
It’s almost enough to make a girl run out for a box of Herbal Essences Amazon Gold.
Nevertheless, the cheerleader in Annisa just won’t let her quit. She may be a little different, but Sand Dune High had better watch out—this non-blonde is here to stay.
When tomboy Aubrey Mills flies to Vermont with her best friend Christie, she’s expecting two weeks of skiing, skating and fun in the snow. She never imagined she’d get sucked into the annual Snow Queen beauty pageant. But when she meets Layla Chamberlain, the snotty girl expected to win the crown, her competitive nature kicks in and she decides she has to take the girl down. Of course that may get a little bit complicated when Aubrey starts to fall for Layla’s gorgeous older brother Grayson, who thinks his sister is a perfect angel. Can Aubrey find love with her dream guy, while feuding with his sister and going for the crown?
Kieran's books are always a sure bet for a fun read that can pull you away from the real world for a while. Whether you're reading Non-Blonde Cheerleader on the beach, or Snow Queen on the slopes, you're going to have a great time.
To enter today's contest, tell me if you prefer snow or sun? It's beach versus mountain. Would you choose to spend a day surfing and sunning, reading under a beach umbrella? Or swooshing down the slopes and curling up next to the fire with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book? Answer in comments for your chance to win Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp and I WAS A NON-BLONDE CHEERLEADER by Kieran Scott and SNOW QUEEN by Emma Harrison (aka Kieran Scott).
