It’s not that far away now–my next book, Something About You, releases March 2nd. For those of you who haven’t seen this, here’s a brief description:
FATE HAS THROWN TWO SWORN ENEMIES. . .
Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends in bloodshed. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and nearly ruining his career…
. . .INTO EACH OTHER’S ARMS
Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it’s no joke: the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension…
Now here’s the giveaway part: Something About You opens with Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde, who’s had a rough couple of months at work. She decides to treat herself to a night of R&R at a luxury hotel, but things don’t exactly go as planned. To say the least. You can read an excerpt of the book here to see just how wrong things go for our intrepid heroine.
Because a hotel room plays such a pivotal role in the book, I decided to have some fun. Here’s the question: the photograph at the top of this blog (the one of the patio with the tables, flowers and trees) was taken at a hotel Mr. James and I vacationed at. I’ll give a $25 gift card to Borders, Barnes & Noble, or Amazon (at the winner’s choosing) to one random person who leaves a comment below correctly identifying the location of the hotel.
Here’s how the contest will work: I’ll choose a winner among anyone who correctly identifies the city where the photo was taken. If no one identifies the city, then I’ll choose a winner among those of you who correctly guessed the country. If no one identifies the correct county, then I’ll choose a random winner among everyone who entered. One guess per person please.
Want a hint? The hotel is built into the side of a cliff and faces a large body of water. And they have a dog named Bette who escorts you to the lobby when you arrive. She greets you at the boat dock (that’s another hint), rides the elevator with you, and takes you to the front desk. No joke.
The contest will remain open until 10pm CST on Sunday, January 10th.
Please note: friends and family of Julie James and Mr. James are not eligible for the giveaway.
