Giveaway: THE DUKE IS MINE (ARC)


November 4, 2011

Anyone patiently or not so patiently waiting for Eloisa James’ next release? You know her fairy-taled theme historical romance, THE DUKE IS MINE, loosely based on The Princess and the Pea? It’s a January 2012 release but one extremely lucky commenter is going get their hands on this one early because today I’m giving away the ARC (Advance Reader’s Copy). All you have to do is tell what is your favourite fairy tale–I’m nosy like that. LOL!

And if you don’t win, you can always pre-order it now. I’ve included the pre-order links below.

THE DUKE IS MINE
Eloisa James
HarperCollins/Avon
978-062021281
December 27, 2011
400 pages
$7.99

Destiny will be decided between the sheets in this all-new tale of “The Princess and the Pea.”

For Olivia Lytton, betrothal to the Duke of Canterwick—hardly a Prince Charming—feels more like a curse than a happily-ever-after. At least his noble status will help her sister, Georgiana, secure an engagement with the brooding, handsome Tarquin, Duke of Sconce, a perfect match for her in every way . . . every way but one. Tarquin has fallen in love with Olivia.

Quin never puts passion before reason. And reason says that Georgiana is his ideal bride. But the sensual, fiery, strong-willed Olivia ignites an unknown longing in him— a desire they are both powerless to resist. When a scandalous affair begins, they risk losing everything—Olivia’s engagement, her sister’s friendship, and their own fragile love. Only one thing can save them—and it awaits in the bedroom, where a magnificent mattress holds life-changing answers to the greatest romantic riddle of all.

  1. Is this an international giveaway?

    I really hope so! Well, I love Beauty and the Beast and Eloisa’s rendition of that story in When Beauty Tamed the Beast was wonderdul! I am soooooo looking forward to this next book in her fairy tale series!

  2. THE DUKE IS MINE sounds really good, can’t wait for it to be released. My favorite fairy tale has always been Cinderella.

    I really enjoy reading or watching anything that involves fairy tales, that’s why I like the new ABC television show Once Upon a Time. I have to agree with what Margay said it’s fantastic.

  3. I just discovered Eloisa James with Beauty Tames the Beast. I’ll definitely be looking for her new book. My favorite fairy is (of course) Beauty and the Beast.

  4. Wow, this book looks good, I love the idea of basing romance books on fairy tales! I’ve never read an Eloisa James book but I’ve heard very good things about them.

    I would have to pick SLEEPING BEAUTY as my favorite fairy tale!

    Thanks for another wonderful giveaway! :)

  5. I have enjoyed Eloisa’s take on these traditional fairy tales. This should be a good one.
    My favorite is Beauty and the Beast. The inner worth of people is so often overlooked. Beauty may live up to her name in appearance, but in her case it isn’t only skin deep. She is a lovely sensitive person who can see the inner self of the Beast. Not to mention that wonderful library in Beast’s castle. Yes, I know, that is the Disney version, but I love it : )

  6. My favorite fairy tale would have to be Beauty and the Beast.

  7. This book looks sooo amazing. I absolutely adored romances based on fairy tales. :)

    My favorite one would have to be Sleeping Beauty. Love’s true kiss gets me every time. I’m a sap.

  8. For moralistic reasons Beauty and the Beast is a great choice, but I’ve always been fond of The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs (with the sneaky hero questing in order to keep his lovely princess wife).

  9. I’ve always loved Cinderella and that’s why I loved Eloisa James’ A Kiss At Midnight. I can’t wait to read The Duke is Mine.

  10. Looks like there’s quite a few Cinderella fans so I’ll throw my name into that hat. I just finished reading Kieran Kramer’s IF YOU GIVE A GIRL A VISCOUNT which gives the Cinderella take a new spin and loved it. Lila DiPasqua’s A MIDNIGHT DANCE is a pretty hot twist on the same story.

  11. For me it would be Cinderella, although I also have a soft spot for Beauty and the Beast

  12. I’ve become interested in Hawaiian fairy tales. Instead of elves, they have Menehune!

    Hopefully, THIS ARC IS MINE!

  13. I have always loved BEAUTY & THE BEAST. It’s rather wonderful.

  14. *squeee* I’ve been waiting for this book for months! I’m so excited *g*

    Ok, humm my favorite fairy tale would be Beauty And The Beast. I always loved that she saw under the appearances and loved him for what he really was. Soo cute!!!

  15. I’m another Cinderella fan. I’ve read all of Eloisa’s books & cannot wait until The Duke is Mine is released.

  16. Yes, would definitely like to read it. My favorite is Beauty and the Beast. I always felt sorry for the beast!

  17. My favorite is Cinderella, I love the rags to riches stories.

  18. My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast. Like many, I am not-so-patiently awaiting the release of The Duke is Mine. Thanks for the giveaway.

  19. My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast.

  20. My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast. I LOVE the idea of unconditional love and always get teary-eyed when books use this theme.

  21. I love Eloisa’s books. I have been awaiting this book to come out and would love to win and read this. Please choose me. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

  22. my fav fairy talee are Snow White & Rose Red, Brother & Sister, 12 Dancing Princess, Rumplestiltzskin, and Jorinde & Joringle
    my fav disney sterilized fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast

  23. Beauty & the Beast, because we all want to be loved for who we are, instead of what we look like.

  24. As a child I grew up with fairy tale stories. It’s every girls’ dream to be a the princesses who have their happily after marriage. I’m so excited when this classical stories have their own version strat from historical romance to modern romance. My favorite is Beauty and the Beast. I like the part when love can defeat the physical ugliness and the bitter soul.
    Reading this story reminds me to never stop dreaming that life can turn the otherwise. Well, it feels like I’m going back to my childhood time

  25. I am sucker for a Cinderella story.

  26. I’ve loved the Cinderella story for a long time. I guess it would be my favorite.

  27. The Little Mermaid. Ariel’s such a handful of mischief and trouble. Prince Eric is a sweetie too! I like the idea of Mermaids aiding sailors not luring to their deaths.

  28. EJ is one of my all-time favorite authors and her newest book is on my BTB list! Would love to win an ARC copy here. My favorite fairy tale is one from my Grimm’s Book of Fairy Tales I had as a child. It’s called ‘Snow White and Rose Red’. But I liked The Princess and the Pea too!

  29. Hands down, Cinderella!

  30. I LOVE “fairy tale” romances! My favorite fairy tale is hands down “The Little Mermaid”.

  31. I always liked Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Thanks for the giveaway. Can’t wait to read this one.
