The Countdown Begins…with a giveaway!

Please note: giveaway is closed.   Winners will be announced shortly.

So you may have heard that I’ve got a new book, About That Night, coming out on April 3rd.  Whoo-hoo!

About That Night is the third book in what I’m now calling the FBI/U.S. Attorney series. Since we’re only four weeks away from the release of the new book, I thought I’d kick off this month of celebration with a giveaway of five copies of the first book in the series, Something About You, and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble or Amazon (winner’s choice).

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Something About You, here’s a short description:


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…


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 for the giveaway part: all you have to do to enter is leave a comment or question below. It’s that easy.  One grand prize winner will receive a copy of Something About You and a $25 gift card to Amazon/Barnes & Noble. Four additional winners will receive a copy of Something About You.  Winners will be chosen at random, and will have the option of choosing either a signed paperback or a Kindle/Nook ebook.  Giveaway is open internationally and will run until this Friday, March 9th, at 9pm CST.

One last thing: be sure to check out my new series page, which has lots o’ fun stuff for readers both familiar and unfamiliar with the books, including a series overview, the inspiration behind the series, and some tongue-in-cheek profiles of the heroes. (Trust me, you don’t want to miss that part.)

Good luck to all who enter!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I have a question about ABOUT THAT NIGHT. Will the main characters from SOMETHING ABOUT YOU and A LOT LIKE LOVE have supporting roles? I just love Jack and Cameron : )
    Thanks again!

  4. Cindy W says:

    I love your books, but I couldn’t find anywhere what the names of the screenplays you wrote? Are you allowed to dish??? Can’t wait for the new book to come out. Your books and I have a great relationship, they are always saved for my poolside vacation reads!

  7. Kim says:

    I can’t wait for the new release. You’ve written about lawyers and prosecutors, do you think you’ll ever write about politicians? Imagine the comic material with two opponents running for the same office or two opposing campaign managers.

  19. Alyssa @ Hesperia Loves Books says:

    I’ve heard amazing things about your books and I can’t wait to read them! Do these books have to be read in order? I suffer from series OCD and I just cannot bring myself to read out of order even if they can be considered standalones *SMH* it’s such a sickness, lol.

  22. Athena says:

    I can’t wait to read Kyle’s story. When I read A Lot Like Love, I had this image of him in my mind, of a naive nerd (not meant in a bad way). Then I read this excerpt of About That Night and immediately realized I was wrong 🙂 So I’m very curious as to what more you have got in store for us! And it couldn’t hurt to win this giveaway ^^)

  23. Gena Robertson says:

  27. Loosheesh says:

    I read Something About You first, followed by Just the Sexiest Man Alive (LOVE this book!), followed by the rest, followed by eagerly awaiting About That Night …

  28. Alicia says:

    Is there going to be a Jordan and Nick cameo? I assume yes, but I’m really hoping it’s more than one!

    Now for an odd random question: Is there some sort of Lawyer Turned Professional Author organization? I read so many books by former lawyers I feel like there should be. I’d love to peek into it.

  29. Glittergirl says:

    This is such a great opportunity to get you know your books. I hope I win so you can become my new favorite author. The series sounds fantastic

  30. Nerissa says:

    Can’t wait to read About that night. It’s already on my “must-get” list. Hoping to win Something about You, which i’ve read already and no doubt would love to read again. 🙂

  31. Eva says:

    Something about you was actually the first of your books that I read.
    It was last summer and as soon as I finished I bought the others. That’s how much I loved it.
    I can’t wait for About That Night. 🙂

  32. Cris says:

    Umm, can it be April 3rd like now, please? I’m supposed to have a thesis committee meeting on the 6th, so methinks I’m going to be much more up to date on the trials & tribulations of the man who shut down Twitter than on the regulation of gene expression in E. coli 😛

  33. Katrina Fields says:

    Hello, I read a sample of your first book, I am excited to have a chance to win a copy. Christy Reece tweeted about you and I love finding new authors. From just a sample at BN I really would love to get this book. If I dont win, dont worry I am going to purchase all 3 anyway. XOXO Tink

  34. Dina says:

    My favorite was A Lot Like Love so far, though I blast through all of them. And spring break is coming up! I need more FBI hotness!!

  35. Mirsada Sabanovic says:

    Congrats on your upcoming release! I am very excited to read it… I loved your other four books as well=] Thanks for the giveaway.

  36. Chachic says:

    Can’t wait to read the next one! I hope Jack and Cameron and Nick and Jordan make appearances in About That Night. And it looks like there’s going to be a fourth book in the series, looking forward to the synopsis of that. 🙂

  37. Ileana A. says:

  40. Jennifer Sutphin says:

    Julie !!!!!!
    So you know how much I love your series and how I read all your books in about a day =) what can I saw you made me like to read again …. Plus being a Criminal Justice major and a Forensic Science Minor these books hit home Esp since I am going for FBI now … Agent Sutphin sounds hot lol But I just want to say thank you for grabbing my attention with these books they are amazing. Maybe you can flip the scene on the next couple books with female agents falling for the one she is helping and make them a lil steamier =) Thanks

  41. PeggyB says:

    I have read and loved all of your books (Something About You is a particular favorite), and have wondered about your legal background since reading the first. Were you a litigator? Civil or criminal? What was/is your favorite and least favorite aspect of practicing law?

  42. Kristy says:

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I enjoy rereading all your books whenever I read a bunch of not so good ones just so I can reinforce the thought that there are good writers out there. I can’t wait to read About That Night!

  43. Olivia Tan says:

  45. Julie says:

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to drop in and say hello. It’s great to hear how everyone is looking forward to the release of ABOUT THAT NIGHT. Me, too. : )

    For those of you who posted a question, I’ve been compiling those and think I’ll answer them in a separate blog. I’m afraid, with all the comments, that they’ll get lost in the shuffle. : )

  46. Amy Remus says:

    I do love your books, Julie! I am hoping for the gift card, which will go towards buying About That Night so my husband will get a break from seeing all the transactions in our account that go to Barnes & Noble for ebooks. 🙂

  47. Leeanne says:

    Cannot wait for April 3rd! I’ve re-read Something About You and A Lot Like Love MANY times. SAY is seriously one of my favorite romance books for all time. There is just something about Cameron and Jack together. I really want my own FBI agent, but I think my husband might have a problem with that. ;-D

  48. Jean says:

    Looking forward to another great Julie James book. She proves again that lawyers make some of the BEST authors.

  49. Donna Cromeans says:

    Can’t wait for this book! Been a longtime fan. Anytime any of my customers at the B&N, where I work part-time,ask me to recommend a new author, I tell them to try Julie James.

  50. cECIlia says:

    Very exited about this book..:D
    And thank you very much for the chance international open. The prize is awesome…

  54. Aishwarya says:

    Wow! Hoping for april to come soon. I really love your books. They have strong female characters unlike other chick-lit books with helpless heroines.
