Contest Monday: Win a Copy of Water Song

First of all, it's time to announce the Contest Monday Banner winner. As you can see from the above graphic, the winner is "Book Gift" by Liyana. Congratulations! You will now see your graphic every Monday! For everyone who entered the contest, look in your inboxes for an email telling you how to claim your prizes.

And now it's time to tell you what you're playing for. Those of you who have been following for awhile know how much I gush about the Once Upon A Time Series done by Simon Pulse. Well, when I was unpacking boxes the other day, I happend to find a prize copy I though I had already given away. I guess not. So here's my chance to share something I love with all of you. If you were observant and noticed the title of this post, you'll have guessed the prize already. This week the prize is a copy of Suzanne Weyn's book Water Song: A Retelling of The Frog Prince. Hmmm... seems we have a water theme going on with CM posts lately.

About the Book (From Back Cover): "Young, beautiful, and wealthy, Emma Pennington is accustomed to a very comfortable life. Although war rages abroad, she hardly feels its effect. She and her mother travel from their home in Britain to the family estate in Belgium, never imagining that the war could reach them there. But it does.

Soon Emma finds herself stranded in a war-torn country, utterly alone. Enemy troops fight to take over her estate, leaving her with no way to reach her family, and no way out.

With all of her attention focused on survival and escape, Emma hardly expects to find love. But the war will teach her that life is unpredictable, people aren't always what they seem, and magic is lurking everywhere."

Wow, this is kind of ironic, because just the other day a buddy of mine had another book in this series, and that was actually the first that I'd heard of [this series].

Anyway - sweet, I'd loved to be entered!
