Giveaway: How to Tame a Modern Rogue by Diana Holquist

Posted on: August 10, 2009


how to tame a modern rogue

Commitment-phobic Sam Carson has only dated model-gorgeous women. But one stolen kiss from a plain-Jane schoolteacher and he’s hell-bent on stripping away her floral dresses and teaching her the art of being bad. If only her good-girl ways didn’t make him want to be a better man…

Ally Giordano is at the end of her rope. Her beloved grandmother actually believes that she’s living in her favorite romance novel in Regency England and Ally doesn’t have the heart to set her straight. But now Granny Donny’s last wish is for a retreat to the country and Ally can’t refuse her…until she demands that Sam accompany them. And though his smiles turn her knees into jelly, Ally knows better than to trust a playboy…and she definitely knows better than to try to change one. Or does she?

Thanks to Anna at Hachette, I have permission to give out 5 copies of How to Tame a Modern Rogue by Diana Holquist.

Giveaway ends August 22nd at midnight EST.  Only open to residents of the US and Canada, no PO Boxes.  Sorry international readers 😦

  • +10 entries for blogging about this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Ning group, or other site, and coming back here with the link (please, no links to your main site, it has to be specific to the post).  Sidebars count, as long as I can find it
  • +5 for referring someone here and they tell me you sent them

Good morning 🙂

+5 My favorite TV show is The Shield
+10 This is my first time visiting your blog, and truthfully I really like it! It’s easy to navigate and not so insanely cluttered/busy that I can’t tell what’s going on lol Very clean and sharp, you’ve done a nice job 🙂

+5 My favorite TV show is Bones…and possibly Stargate/Stargate Atlantis, but they’re no longer filming. So.

+10 I like your blog – the clean background makes it very easy to read/navigate etc. I also love that you provide full feed rss feeds – it’s annoying when I have to click through to read something. If I’m interested, I’ll click through, if I’m not, a teaser won’t do it. My 2 cents anyways. Great job!

One of my favorite shows is Two and a Half Men.

I like your blog setup because it is easy to read. I like the white background and the spacing.
