A.D. Robertson's (aka Andrea Cremer) Captive + GIVEAWAY

Hello everyone,
I'd say "happy Monday" but, alas, that's an oxymoron more often than not...

Today, I have a special giveaway for you all. Did you know Andrea Cremer, author of the Nighshade series, is coming out with her first adult novel under the pen name A.D. Robertson?


Captive: The Forbidden Side of Nightshade is set in the world of the Nightshade series. I haven't had a chance to pick up the Nightshade series yet but I've always been curious about it. Leslie read the first book in the series and quite enjoyed it (read her review of Nightshade). Here's the blurb:
The first adult novel set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Nightshade series, Captive delivers a steamy, forbidden romance between sworn enemies drawn together by an irrepressible desire.

Twenty-five-year-old Tristan Doran enjoys a life of incredible power and privilege. As a direct descendant of the Keepers—witches who have embraced dark magic—he defers to no one but his overlord, Lord Bosque Mar. For most of his life, Tristan has been kept out of the centuries-old Witches War, his bloodline too valuable to risk in battle.

But when a beautiful, young human Searcher named Sarah is captured and made a prisoner in his Irish castle, Tristan’s infatuation with her flings him headlong into the fray. Captive and captor, unable to contain their longing, embark on a passionate, forbidden romance together—only to learn that their love is at the heart of a prophecy predicting the downfall of the Keepers’ ages-old reign.

Captive explores the darker side of the richly imagined Nightshade universe, a fantasy world of powerful dark witches, shape-shifting wolf warriors, and fascinating history. The first of three erotic novels, Captive delves deeply into the fiery, illicit romance of two young lovers whose very desires invite their doom.

Captive comes out on October 23rd and is being marketed as an erotic adult romance, which I admit made me a bit nervous because while I like my romance extra steamy I avoid reading straight-up erotica (they are just not my cup of tea). But I've read some early reviews on Goodreads and it was mentioned that while there are a lot of steamy encounters it's not as explicitly erotic (I'm relieved!). 

Anyway, I'm very, very curious about this novel and I'll be reading it very soon. I'll be posting my review in mid-October, closer to the release date. And if you're also curious about Captive like me, we have a copy to give away to one lucky reader (open US only). A big thanks to Dutton/Penguin for making this giveaway possible.  

Good luck and happy reading,
Michelle

  4. Hi Lydia. I'm sorry but yes it's only open in the US (publisher's rule--they are the one shipping the book the winner). but if you have a friend with a US address, if you win the book can be sent to them and they can send the book to you outside of the US
