Book of the Day: Relentless, by Lauren Dane

*********************THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED****************


In this erotic universe, passion knows no rank…

Since the first settlers came through the portals from Earth, fifteen Families have held the rule of the Federated Universes in their hands. There’s never been a better time than now to throw out the old and usher in a new order. Give voice to the unranked. Abbie Haws has spent her life battling the system. A fighter, she’s always been too busy and driven to pay much attention to finding love. But when she’s granted audience with Roman Lyons, the head of House Lyons, who stands for everything she hates, her instant attraction catches Abbie off-guard…

It’s common knowledge that the Known Universe revolves around Ravena—and that Ravena revolves around Roman Lyons, bred to lead since birth. Roman dreads his meeting with a defiant—if stunning—rabble-rouser. But, sometimes, headstrong personalities in the conference room make for hot-and-heavy, guilty trysts in private….

Now, Abbie will show Roman the parts of her world he wouldn’t otherwise get to see. And he’ll give her a glimpse of the Families’ age old tradition and unleash a sexuality he’d never given rein to before.

I had another book scheduled for today, but I realized this weekend that Lauren Dane’s Relentless releases TOMORROW. I had to fit this book. I’ve read it, loved it, and think you will too. So tomorrow, the last day of the book-a-day contests, there will be a double contest with a chance to win two different books.

Want a shot at Relentless? Since I posted my playlist for the Elemental Witches series, I want to know what’s on yours. What are you listening to these days? Comment to be entered! If you win and you live in the U.S., this book will ship to you from an online retailer. If you’re out of the U.S., I’ll buy it and ship to you. Contest open to all.

Ready, set, go!

  1. Right now I’m mostly listening to Him, Apocalyptica and Nightwish.

  2. I’ve been sitting here in silence all morning because I was too lazy to go out and get my iPod, hook it up to the compy and get some music going. Well now, you cured the laziness! I had to go out because I had no idea what was even on my iPod anymore – I just skip through the majority of the songs until I get to the few favorites that I listen to over and over…

    Currently the main songs I’m listening to include Afraid by Nelly Furtado, Ghost Town by Shiny Toy Guns, Pink, Hinder and Evanescence among others.

  3. Lady Antebellum, Sugarland, Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Montgomery Gentry

  4. I am really looking forward to Relentless.

    My playlist includes Avenged Sevenfold, Pink, The Spill Canvas, Papa Roach, and throughout my day I hear lots of 80’s music (my son is obsessed with thiss) and Mylie Cyrus (this would be my daughter).

  5. I’m currently listening to 80’s music (Def Leppard, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Human League, etc.).

  6. I have these loaded up on my mp3 player: Evanescense, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Nickleback, Leonard Cohen, Loreena McKennitt, and a bunch of music from animes that I love!

  7. I am listening to a variety of things including Dashboard Confessional, Loreena McKennitt, Matt Kearney, and the Twilight soundtrack.

  8. Well, this morning I ended my walk with Onda from Los Lonely Boys. Other than that my iPod is filled with everything from Evanescence and Bjork to Matchbox 20 and Blake Shelton!

  24. Pokerface by Lady Gaga

  25. Oh, wow, Kammie who’s wishing she has a figure like the girl on the cover. lol

    I just loaded all of my CD’s onto my IPod. I have over 1200 songs and most of them I’ve been skiping over. Like Michael Bolton, Celine Dion etc. I still like their music but I lean toward songs that are more up beat now. I don’t think it’s going to take long to get through all them.

  26. I’m deaf, so I don’t hear music. So I’m thinking what to say, LOL. I do remember lyrics that my boyfriend, now hubby showed me when we were dating. I felt the music and the words together with the help from him (speaker on floor) and can feel in my head how it goes. Its Fleetwood Mac;s, LANDSLIDE. Check out the lyrics, they are beautiful. Here’s few:

    Oh, take my love, take it down
    Climb a mountain and turn around
    If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
    Well the landslide will bring it down

  27. I love the unique sounds of COLDPLAY!

  28. Josh Groban, The Backstreet Boys, Celine Dion, Lady GaGa, Enya, Shakira. Most of my listening is radio so I don’t really know the songs/artists

  29. I have been listening to Atlantic Starr lately.

  30. I spend most of my day listening to my Pandora station that is full of artists like Relient K, Cartel, Script, Anberlin, and much, much more.

  31. everthing i like

  32. We recently had The Franz Family visit our church, and bought their collection of albums–we’ve been listening to them and enjoying the different liner notes (including the ones that go way back to the late ’90s!)
