April Contest!

I’m afraid I don’t have a secret to reveal today, but a desire.

I wish to give you poison.

Yes, you read that correctly. I decided it’s time to run my first contest! Since, at the moment, I don’t have copies of my books to give away, I came up with a sumptuous alternative.

PRIZE: PURE POISON, Christian Dior, Eau de Parfum, French fragrance for Women. (50 ml – spray) $75.00 value according to the DIOR official website.

And it fits perfectly with the first story in AWAKENED BY A KISS, titled Sleeping Beau (my steamy, wicked take on Sleeping Beauty). You see, my hero Adrien d’Aspe, Marquis de Beaulain, doesn’t know the identity of the woman who sneaked into his bedchamber five years ago and woke him with a searing kiss. Their night of raw ecstasy was branded into his memory, every detail, including her fragrance – jasmine – and the fact that he’d taken a virgin.

When I read the following description of PURE POISON from Dior’s official site, I knew I’d found the perfect prize for my first contest. It even sounds fairy tale and describes Catherine!

“Once upon a time, there was a fragrance that was innocent yet captivating, sincere yet mysterious… Pure Poison incarnates seduction in its purest state by exploring its duality and irresistible alchemy. Based on orange blossom, jasmine, gardenia, amber and sandalwood, this delicate yet generous modern potion reveals the seductress within..” —Now, dearest readers, how delicious is that?

    The perfume sounds intriguing as does AWAKENED BY A KISS.

  • Hi Pat,
    Thank you for lovely comment. Glad you stopped by! Though I’m a tad bias here, I love both the perfume and the book. At the risk of sounding immodest, in my opinion, they’re both pretty delicious. :)
    Hugs,
    Lila
