Book of the Day: Jaded

The winner of yesterday book, JEWELED, is Kristina E., who said, “I love both. I love trilogies the best, because you get a good amount of story with the character, but you don’t have to wait 10 years to finish reading the series….” Please drop me an email at anyabast(at) within two weeks to claim your prize.

Today’s book…the ONLY copy of Jaded I’ll give away during this event:

One woman who’s sworn never to love again.

Two men who can’t help but desire her.

And the magic and passion that binds them together…

Haunted by a traumatic attack when she was eighteen, Lilya Orensdaughter has become a courtesan in the Temple of Dreams, determined to never again lose control. But she will do anything for Byron Andropov, the man who nursed her back to health all those years ago—and who now wants her to help his friend Alek Chaikoveii come to terms with the powerful magick he possesses.

In Alek, Lilya finds a kindred spirit. The attraction between them is immediate, and soon Lilya surrenders to nights of unimaginable ecstasy. But she can’t forget Byron, who’s concealed his feelings for Lilya because he believed she would never love again. As tensions escalate between the two men who are vying for Lilya’s heart, Lilya finds herself torn between her desire for the man who saved her, and the man whose soul resembles her own—only to discover that in the world of unrestrained passion there are no boundaries. If only you’re willing to give up control…

“Sexy and dark, Jaded is the intriguing follow-up to Jeweled. Bast has created a trio of tortured survivors who find love and healing in this historical gem.” — RT BOOKreviews

  1. I want to see the new X-Men and Harry Potter.

  2. Looking forward to The Hangover 2

  3. Thor is the only movie currently showing that I want to see – and even with Thor I can wait until it’s released as a DVD … give me a book and it’s a different story!

  4. Hoodwinked 2: Fairytales that dissolve into mayhem. I guess I’m rooting for The Big Bad Wolf to eat Little Red Riding Hood & Hansel and Gretel to finally get their comeuppance. In a world often full of doom & gloom: good for a laugh.

  5. Cars 2. my kids love Cars and will watch it repeatedly! I like cars, too, and i think it is fun howthey turn everyday human things into stuff only the cars can do. (sipping oil out of a straw ^_^)

  6. I can’t wait to see X-Men: First Class!!!
