Can Mortal Men Be Sexy, Too?

Congratulations to Martha of Missouri for winning this month's contest! Thank you all for the comments! Please come back July 25th for the next giveaway!

Here's the cover for Less than a Gentleman, and I believe it answers my question extremely well. Matthias, the hero from Less than a Gentleman, is neither fanged nor furry.  But plenty sexy!  The e-book version of Less than a Gentleman goes on sale in one week!  (The print version will be available August 6th). Luckily, you don't have to take my word for it when it comes to Matthias's sexiness. You can read the first two chapters and decide for yourself!  You'll find the link for the excerpt here--

And once you've read the excerpt, you might as well enter my website contest!!! TEN lucky winners will receive a signed print copy of The Forbidden Lady in July and then TEN more will receive a signed copy of Wild About You at the end of August to celebrate the release of The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo. Yes, that's two books back to back! A historical in July and book 14 of the Love at Stake series in August! Here's the link to the contest page! http://www.kerrelynsparks.com/contest.html
 
If you're anywhere near Atlanta, GA, I hope you will consider coming to the giant booksigning that starts off the Romance Writers of America annual conference. The booksigning is open to the public and over FOUR HUNDRED authors will be signing!!  I'll be there along with some of your other favorite authors. The event will happen Wednesday, July 17th, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Atlanta. To see which authors are signing and for more information, check out http://www.rwa.org/p/cm/ld/fid=564. 

I'll also be appearing with some other Avon authors at the Margaret Mitchell House on Thursday night during the conference. For more information, go to http://www.margaretmitchellhouse.com/page.asp?ID=244&EventID=112.

And now for today's contest! It's a double header!! One lucky winner will receive a copy of the Supernatural Underground anthology, Vampires Gone Wild, and a copy of Love at Stake book 13, Wild About You!  I'll sign both before mailing them. International entries are welcome. Just leave a comment, telling me what you're currently reading. Good luck!

Hello Kerrelyn (I love the spelling of your name BTW)! I've loved your vampire series, but now that I've read the blurb and excerpt from your American history series (I HOPE it will be a series?), I'm anxious to read Less Than a Gentleman. But I'm still reading your vampire stories, so I can wait awhile. :-) Right now I'm reading Sabrina jeffries' What the Duke Desires in exchange for a review asap. So I'll get back to my vampires when I'm finished with that. :-) jdh2690@gmail.com
