RUSH Giveaway (take 2)

Ok so the gremlins ate the first RUSH giveaway post. Some people can see it. Most can’t (me included) VERY ANNOYING and I apologize for the inconvenience. I’m reposting the original post below so that MAYBE everyone can see it and participate.  Again, sorry!

Hey gang! As promised, I’m going to give away advance copies of RUSH :) And what better way to start off the new year than to give out some pressies!

If you’d like to be entered to win, just comment below and tell me what your favorite read of 2012 was. If you absolutely CAN’T narrow it down to just ONE, feel free to list two or three. But let me know what you read and LOVED this year!

I’ll leave the contest open through Monday, Jan 7th. I’ll be out of town until Sunday. Winners will have a couple of days to respond and send me their mailing address but please be aware! We’re down to ONE MONTH until RUSH releases so you’ll need to check back on MONDAY to see if you’re a winner. If the ARC isn’t claimed in a short time, I’ll award the book to someone else. I want to get these books out to y’all before the book actually releases :)

As always, ALL of my giveaways are open to international readers. No restrictions, so enter and comment away :)

And have a wonderful new year!! Here’s to an even MORE awesome 2013!

    I would have to say the sweet series. Mostly because it has changed my sex life!!!!

  2. Kayla W. says:


    I loved quite a bit of books, but I will say that one that I was not anticipating was On Dublin Street by Samantha Young. It was recommended on a GR group page and by my best friend, and I must say, it was very memorable and very good. I’m now anticipating the next one!! :)

    Happy 2013! Good luck with Steele :D

    I started reading the Sweet Series this last year and fell in love. I am also a big fan of the KGI novels. A new author that I got into was Kathreen Brooks and her Bluegrass Series. It is pretty calm, but a still fun read.

  16. Tabatha Scott says:

  39. Normi says:

    I absolutly love your Highlander series. Can not wait until your most recent book coming out in March.

  40. Sarah says:

    My fav book of the year would have to be Never Seduce A Scot. Not only was it an amazing story in its own right. It has a female lead who was not perfect, but so strong and beautiful. It featured a male lead that looked beyond what the wold saw to the women beneath.

    It was so nice to read a book that had these features as well as a beautiful love story.

    Love all your books this was by far my fav can’t wait for me.

  41. Heidi says:

    KGI is my fav, Sweet following a close second, but I am so looking forward to RUSH. I have read everything that you have written and Lady I do so love the way you write, please, please give Steel his story and never stop writing. THANKS

  42. Angela Freckman says:

    Congratulations on a amazing career and I look forward to staying up many many more nights losing myself in your stories!!!

    PS.Wish Rush had come out earlier!! Summer holidays in Aus!!!

  45. Nicole Bowers says:

    I love the Colter’s family. I could not stop reading. As soon as I was done with one I had to read the others. I can’t wait to read more.

  46. carey says:

    I would have to say the colter series and the kgi series cant wait for the next ones to come out i just started to read the sweet series and like that also I am just a big fan of all your books it is my mission to read them all

  47. Rhonda says:

    Although this contest is over I also felt compelled to comment. I have read so many books in the last year and have found several wonderfully written , easy reads. My favorites from 2012 is the Sweet Series ( by you of course), Club Shadowlands Series By Cherise Sinclair, The Crossfire Series (Bared To You & Reflected in You)by Sylvia Day,The Original Sinners Series (The Siren, The Angel, & The Prince) by Tiffany Reisz, Gabriels Inferno & Gabriels Rapture By Sylvain Reynard, Crows Rows by Julie Hockley & Boycotts & Barflies by Victoria Michaels. The list could go one , but these are the ones I recommend the most and have read more than once , and will read again.

  48. Laura Uriegas says:

    Have really enjoyed all of your Kelly Series, reading (Shades of Gray)tonight. I also have read all Colter’s Legacy and Sweet Series. Waiting for next set. Thanks for the good read.

  49. Tracy says:

    I love the Sweet Series (read them in two weeks) but my all-time favorite is the Highlander Series, especially Seduction of a Highland Lass. By the end of the book I was tearing up and that for me never happens. I am excited to see a new book for March 25th “Highland Ever After”. The only con is that I have to wait so long to buy it!! Thank you Maya!

  50. Tammy says:

    I love the KGI series but love the Colter series as well. To many to choose just one. I have read them over and over. When I need to get away I just pick up one of your books and be transferred into your world. Thanks for the books.
