The Countdown Continues. . . with another giveaway!

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

Only three weeks to the release of About That Night!  Which means it’s time for. . . another giveaway!

As many of you know, About That Night is the third book in what I’m now calling the FBI/U.S. Attorney series.  The hero in About That Night, Kyle Rhodes, is a billionaire heir/network security specialist/ex-con.  Yep, you heard that right: he went to prison for crashing Twitter after his supermodel ex-girlfriend broke up with him via a tweet.  Kyle is first introduced in my previous book, A Lot Like Love, when his twin sister agrees to work with the FBI (as part of a sting operation) in exchange for Kyle’s release from prison.

This week I’m giving away five copies of A Lot Like Love, and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble or Amazon (winner’s choice).  For those of you who aren’t familiar with A Lot Like Love, here’s a short description:


As the daughter of a billionaire and the owner of the city’s top wine store, Jordan Rhodes is invited to the most exclusive parties in Chicago. But there’s only one party the FBI wants to crash: the charity fundraiser of a famous restaurateur, who also happens to launder money for the mob. In exchange for her brother’s release from prison, Jordan is going to be there—with a date supplied by the Bureau.


As the top undercover agent in Chicago, Nick McCall has one rule: never get personal. This “date” with Jordan Rhodes is merely an assignment—one they’re both determined to pull off even if they can’t be together for five minutes before the sarcasm and sparks begin to fly. But when Nick’s investigation is compromised, he and Jordan have no choice but to pretend they’re a couple, and what starts out as a simple assignment begins to feel a lot like something more. . .

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 A Lot Like Love and a $25 gift card to Amazon/Barnes & Noble. Four additional winners will receive a copy of A Lot Like Love.  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 16th, at 9pm CST.

One more thing: those of you who are new to the FBI/US Attorney series should feel free to check out my new series page, which includes a series overview, the inspiration behind the series, and some fun profiles of the heroes.

And yet another thing (this is really it, I promise): some of you have probably heard that A Lot Like Love is a finalist in this year’s DA BWAHA competition. (Yay!) The competition is a March Madness-style tournament of romance novels where you, the readers, pick the books that advance.  Anyone can vote, so if you liked A Lot Like Love, consider taking two seconds today to vote for it here.)  Voting goes until midnight CST, anyone can vote (international included), and there’s no registration or email address required.

Okay, that’s it.  Whew.  Now good luck to everyone who enters the giveaway!

    A Lot Like Love was a terrific book — the series is hot, funny, and a don’t-put-it-down-until done. Can’t wait for Kyle’s story!

  17. Jackie says:

    Oh boy…I was not aware of this series. Will have to start reading it soon so I can be caught up when the third one comes out. Congrats on the new release.

  18. Carolyn says:

    Can’t wait for the new book! Your book releases seem to fall during our Spring Break trips. Last year I had to steathily sneak into Target to grab A Lot Like Love, cause DH would not have considered that a necessity. I’m wondering what store I’m going to have to sneak into to pick up About That Night, and what little white lie I’ll have to tell DH to get him to stop at a store on vacation.

  19. Christine Rivera says:

    I’ve never read any of your books, but to be honest this book seems like one I would be in to. Either way I will read it. Hopefully you will have a new fan!!!

  20. Traci Etzkorn says:

  28. Amy Remus says:

    DABWAHA It is a lot more fun than the NCAA brackets, however, like he NCAA brackets I don’t have a clue on most of those books. The only two books I have read in the entire list is yours and Shannon Stacey’s (Love the Kowalskis and Yours To Keep is my favorite of the series so far).

  29. Dreythaller says:

    So far was always veeeery fast – I hope this time they will do it again and I might have the book a tiny bit earlier….. hopefully since I can´t wait!

  30. Saly says:

    I wouldn’t mind a gift card since I buy books like crazy. I sooo can’t wait for Kyle’s book especially after reading the early reviews.

    Your books have been becoming better & better each year & I am going to vote again in DABWAHA, last year was tough.

  31. Linda Brashears says:

    I love books about the FBI. This would be a great opportunity for me if I won your book because I don’t think I have ever read one of your books. This would be a great book to win. And since it sounds so good, I’m going to have to buy some of your other books to see if they are good, too. Thanks for having this contest.

  32. Leeanne says:

    Very much looking forward to Kyle’s story and have been re-reading the other books in the series. Hope you have lots more of these FBI guys up your sleeve!

  33. Tina says:

    Thanks so much, Julie, for opening your contest for international readers as well. Unfortunately many US authors keep their fans from abroad out. I just read “Something about you” which will come out in Germany next month and really loved it. Looking forward to the next books in the series.

  34. Susan T. says:

  44. Xinmin says:

    Absolutely cannot wait for Kyle’s book! I was totally intrigued by him from the last book. I thought it was hilarious that he actually shut down Twitter. Would love to see that in real life and actually see people panicking. Shows how depended we are on social networks–whatever happened to old-fashioned socializing?

  45. Jackie says:

    Cannot WAIT! Love every single one of your books. The only contemp author that I re-read! And DA BWAHA is so much fun!

  51. Alex H says:

    I love your books! I really like how the female characters have real professional jobs with gender neutral names! Ever thought about having a female lead be an engineer? Or named Alex?

  52. Dina says:

    Well, like I’ve said before, ALLL is my favorite so far, and Kyle is a great character! So excited to hear he will be making another appearance! Is the 3 weeks over yet?
