ARCS of Not Wicked Enough – Giveaway!

Not Wicked Enough ARCS

Almost Final Cover of Not Wicked Enough

Almost Final Cover of Not Wicked Enough

I came home Tuesday evening to find that I have ARCs for my February 2012 Berkley Historical, Not Wicked Enough.

Just as that cover isn’t quite the final cover, the ARC is not quite the final book. For example, chapters 31 and 32 should be swapped. If you win one, feel free to read chapter 32 before chapter 31 (and mentally add in some missing transition) And yet, I am giving away THREE (3) ARCS.

When Lily Wellstone heads to the Bitterward Estate to comfort her widowed friend Eugenia, she certainly does not have romance in mind. In fact, the playful but level-headed Lily is amused to no end when, en route, a Gypsy gifts her with a beautiful medallion, claiming it will ensnare the romantic desires of a stranger.


But fate has other plans in the form of Eugenia’s ruggedly handsome brother, the Duke of Mountjoy. One day at Bitterward and Lily can’t deny the sizzling attraction between her and the roguish duke. Nothing can come of it, of course. She’s not looking for entanglements and he’s practically engaged. But whether it’s her outgoing nature and the duke’s outlandish ways sparking off one another; or the mysterious gypsy medallion working “magic,”—hearts are stirring in the most unexpected and wicked ways. . .


How to Possibly Win one of Three ARCS

  1. If you are one of the winners, you must agree to write a review of the book. An honest review. Please post your review either at at least one of the following: your own blog, Facebook, Goodreads or one of the bookselling sites such as Amazon or Barnes and Noble. If you don’t have a blog etc, then you can send me your review and I will post it at my blog.
  2. Leave a comment to this post in which you make some mention of the number three.

The Rules

Void Where prohibited. You must be over 18. No purchase necessary. Please post your comment by midnight Pacific Sunday November 13. Three winners will be chosen from the comments at random, probably not later than Monday Nov 13. International is fine, unless there’s a law somewhere that it isn’t. I will email you if possible as well as post the winners to blog, so you may need to check back to see if you won.

    I’d love to read Not Wicked Enough. I enjoyed Scandal so I’m sure I will like this one too.

    I review everything I read and it goes on my blog and at Goodreads and then I mention it on Twitter too, so that’s the THREE! 🙂

    Even though I have three children to keep me busy, I would love to win an arc of Not Wicked Enough. My review would be posted on three different places: Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, and the public library (when it’s available for review). Right now, my odds are looking good with three arcs available. ;o)

  3. Michelle says:

    I would love to read Not Wicked Enough! I have read more than THREE of your books, and I love your writing! I have been using GoodReads for a while now to keep track of what I have read, but I have started posting reviews of what I read recently, since I do use others’ reviews to help me decide if I want to take reading time to try an author I have not tried before, so I figure I should give back by doing my own reviews as well.

    Thank you!

  4. Lisa W says:

    I would love a copy 🙂 I will post a review on my blog about a month before the release date, Goodreads and to Amazon on release day. I just love this cover!!
    It looks like I am going to be comment number three to win one of the three arcs so keeping fingers crossed.

  5. Amy Kathryn says:

    I like the cover, I hope it won’t change too much!

    This will be historical number 3 that I have read by you and I will be happy to post a review on Goodreads.

  6. Faith Renfield says:

    Mmm. Someone stole my three kids reference, so I’ll have to go with three reasons why I’d like a chance to review your upcoming historical
    1. I think you’re under appreciated. Being reviewed on my blog will do nothing to improve that, unfortunately, but I can guarantee my review will be thoughtful and include no ambiguous phrases like this historical is so “different.” (Where I’m from [midwest] this is code for “wrong,” so I keyed-in on that rather than the “enjoyed” that sent you quivering.)
    2. I really like your demons/mages series. Please write more. Also, that fantasy novella with the scarred dude? More of that world, please.
    3. Frankly, I need the practice. And I sense you’re the adventurous enough to give me a chance.

  7. I’m an avid reader and just love your books! (Especially the demon world, but love the others as well.)

    I’m also an athlete, so leave to race in Europe right after Thanksgiving and will be traveling for over three months! I will obviously be taking a lot of reading material with…and would love to include the ARC! And happy to post a review on Amazon and / or Barnes & Noble between races. 🙂

    PS – I second Faith’s comment about the “fantasy novella with the scarred dude” – quite enjoyed the historical with a touch of fantasy/paranormal!

  8. Lillie H. says:

    A chance to win Not Wicked Enough! Count me in. I’d happily post a review at my blog and Goodreads.

    I enjoyed reading The Spare and My Dangerous Pleasure. Not Wicked Enough would be the third title from you I would add to my bookshelf.

  9. Jess says:

    I’d love an ARC! I review on my blog and Goodreads, and it automatically updates to FB as well..

    *Today’s comment brought to you today by the Number 3

    (What? My three-year old took over the tv this morning) 😛

    Please throw my hat in the ring to win one of the three ARCs that you are giving away. Your writing is absolutely fabulous, with strong characters, wonderful plots, and very sensuous encounters. Sigh.

    Hi Carolyn,

    I would love to win an ARC of your latest book. I review everything I read on my own blog, I live in Holland, so I don’t know if this contest is international.
    I am going to look into Goodreads soon, as I keep reading so much about it.

    Thanks for the chance, Aurian

  12. Rosie Nguy says:

    I would love to get my hands on your new release early! I would post a review on Amazon and Goodreads as soon as I have read it.

  13. Holly says:

    I’d love to win an ARC of your upcoming novel. I post reviews of every book I read, including quite a few ARCs already, on Goodreads and my own blog. In the interests of full disclosure, I will also say that I’m located in Australia if international residents are eligible for a copy.

    Isn’t it lucky that for the last three days, Iwatched a marathon of the first three seasons of the abc TV show Castle on DVD? 🙂

  14. SeaGrace says:

    I would love a copy of your ARC. I LOVE your historicals. Unfortunately I suck at writing reviews so I’ll wait and buy a copy.

    I hope they don’t make many changes to that cover, it’s gorgeous.
