A Devil Named Desire - Cover Reveal, Excerpt and Giveaway!

Congratulations to LadyVampire2u, Srshmitz, and Just.Val1974, who won a signed copy of DEVIL WITHOUT A CAUSE! Ladies, you should've received an email from me already, but if not, please contact me at TerriGarey@gmail.com with your mailing address to receive your book. Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment!

From the back cover:

Forbidden fruit is always the sweetest...

...and no one knows that better than Sammy Divine.  Once an angel, now cast down, Sammy's out to prove he's not the only angel who can be led into temptation...

Hope Henderson's sister has disappeared without a trace, and Hope will do anything to find her--even make a deal with the Devil.  An ancient text holds the key to unspeakable power, and it's the Archangel Gabriel's job to make sure it stays hidden, even if he has to become mortal to do it.  Lives, love, and the fate of the world hang in the balance, as Hope and Gabriel learn that when passion's involved, desire can be a devil that's impossible to control.

Whaddya think of those abs, or those pants?  ;-p

This is Book #2 in the Devil's Bargain series, and will be in bookstores January 31, 2012.  (It's available for pre-order already--e-book or paper--at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.) A continuation of Sammy Divine's complicated and sometimes surprising search for redemption, this is also the story of his oldest friend, the Archangel Gabriel, who you may remember from Book #1, DEVIL WITHOUT A CAUSE.

Take a peek and see what kind of trouble the world's original bad boy has stirred up this time:

"I'd really like to kiss you."

And then she did, and Gabe's universe expanded to include the sensation of soft lips on his own, the exchange of warm breath, and a throb in his lower belly that was near pleasure/pain.  He had no idea why he let her do it except that she seemed so precious and fragile, so vulnerable, as though she offered him her loneliness and her sorrows along with her body.

Heaven help him, he could not help but drink them in.

Closer she moved, and closer still, until her breasts were against his chest, and it was this that broke the spell; the desire to put his arms around her and drag her even closer came over him like a wave, and with it came the knowledge that if he let it, he would drown.

Abruptly, he jerked his head back, ending the kiss.  "Stop," he whispered, looking into her eyes.  "You must stop."

Hmm... I wonder if she stopped?  ;)  I suppose the answer to that question will remain a mystery until January, but in the meantime, you can learn all about Gabriel's complicated relationship with his one-time brother Samael the Fallen by winning and reading Book#1, DEVIL WITHOUT A CAUSE !

I'm giving away THREE autographed copies of DEVIL WITHOUT A CAUSE today, complete with matching bookmarks, to three lucky people who retweet the following tweet, and/or leave me a comment here on the blog.  If you're on Twitter, just cut and paste this tweet into your Twitter feed:

The Devil made @TerriGarey do it! Go to http://bit.ly/bH1kfo for a devilishly delicious book excerpt + giveaway! Please RT!

If you DON'T tweet, that's okay, too - just leave a blog comment, and you're still entered!  All comments, and all tweets, will be included in the drawing, which I'll hold tomorrow (September 15th) at 7pm EST.

Good luck to you all, and hope you enjoyed the excerpt!

So thank you for letting us non-tweeters just post on the blog, because I still have not figured out how to use twitter,LOL. Both covers have been very yummy and the excerpt is just enough to make me want more. I liked Sammy in your other series so I'm happy you went with books for him.

Thanks for the cover love, and the tweets, guys! I didn't think it was fair to restrict the giveaway to those who don't tweet!

I love these two hotties - Avon outdid themselves in the ab department, didn't they? ;)

JenM said...

Thanks for opening this up to non-tweeters. I stay away from Twitter because there just aren't enough hours in the day as it is, let alone if I tried to participate there also. The cover looks great. Best wishes on the book.

I'll probably get clobbered for saying those covers aren't really my thing, but hey: it's the stories that counts and those sound really cool.

Libby Dodd said...

I'm confused. On FaceBook you said something about a G word FB didn't want you to use and to go here to see it. Huh? I'm here... I WILL settle for a signed copy, however!

Terri Garey said...

I wish I KNEW the both the cover models, but I don't. :(. We poor authors just do the work, but don't get to share in the fun parts, like cover shoots! :)

(Oh, and the "G" word that Facebook doesn't like was "giveaway" - they want you to use their FB app to do giveaways and stuff, and have gotten strict about it). I didn't want my account suspended!
