Skin Heat

Skin Heat More wild thing than man…
Zeke Noble has escaped from a secret facility; he has no idea why he was abducted, but the experiments were cruel, soul-killing, and they changed him forever. Now free, his natural affinity with animals has evolved into a dark and dangerous instinct, a curse that costs him too much of his humanity. But he has to rebuild his life, or his tormentors win. To that end, he goes looking for work and finds so much more.

Born to be wild…
Veterinarian Geneva Harper finds herself reluctantly drawn to the lean, mysterious young man to whom the wild is second nature, but she has troubles of her own. She’s the black sheep in an old moneyed Southern family, and she never had any interest in learning the family business, or being the good debutante daughter.

Though Zeke’s wanted Neva for as long as he can remember, their attraction can never go anywhere. They both know that for different reasons. But when a killer starts leaving behind a trail of victims, Zeke’s need to protect her is as fierce as his desire to claim her as his mate. And love may be the only thing that can save them both…

There’s the cover and the blurb. Here’s what RT had to say:

4.5 stars. “… a gripping suspense tale wrapped in a red-hot love story… Gray is just getting better and better with this series.”

Is there a point to this, you ask? Of course! I have four ARCS to give away on Black Friday. (That’s the day after Thanksgiving.) There’s no limit on geographic location for winners. I’ll mail anywhere. Winners announced Friday. If I don’t hear from you within a week, I redraw.

Here’s the magic question to enter: what do you like best about the Skin series?

Skin Tight

skin tight “Gray has crafted a tight, suspenseful tale that will have you up at night turning pages.”
–RT Book Reviews

Uncovering the truth is her specialty
As a forensic accountant, Mia Sauter could usually tell when people had something to hide. She made her living exposing secrets while concealing her own. Then, in Vegas, she met a clever, ruthless man who called himself Addison Foster. One year later, she’s still haunted by his betrayal.

He’s a natural born liar
The truth of him had long ago been buried. Foster was only one name of many; he’d been so many men, he’d lost count. Reinvented as Thomas Strong and hell-bent on revenge, his mission is about to be compromised by the one woman capable of exposing him…

Reunited, they confront the explosive chemistry still crackling between them. But their chance meeting will have consequences, for a ruthless madman has his own deadly agenda. The question is—if they survive the fallout, will he choose love over vengeance?

So today is the release of SKIN TIGHT. You should totally go get a copy.

ETA: if you do go to the bookstore this week, would you mind taking a picture and posting a link in comments? I wish I could go and admire my pretties on the shelves, but alas, I cannot. You must be my eyes! Please? Pretty please?

Show some SKIN

skin tight This contest probably isn’t what you think. To show your support for SKIN TIGHT (and BatPunisherMan), I’m asking you to display the hot graphic in my left sidebar (designed by Moira Rogers) on your website, Facebook page, blog, or what-have-you for the next month. Here’s the code. (Copy everything after it says Skin code; you don’t need those two words at the top of the page.) Once you’ve done that, come back and let me know by leaving me a link so I can go admire the sexy that is our hero. For a second entry, change your avatar on Twitter (or any other social media) to the BatPunisherMan image. (That’s sized for Twitter.) Then comment here telling me you’ve done that. (You can download the picture by right clicking on my sidebar and choosing save-as.)

In return, you’ll be entered to win. Here are some of the prizes:

There’s also a sekrit grand prize. jetbook lite Has guessed the sekrit grand prize on Twitter! I’m giving away an ebook reader. I am SUPER curious about the JetBook Lite because it runs on regular AA batteries; this permits 23 hours of reading, and you can use rechargeable AAs. That seems like genius to me. It comes in burgundy, black, and white. Winner gets to choose his/her favorite color. Read up on it here. I may buy one for myself, too. I love simplicity. (I’ll get burgundy.)

Plus, I will ALSO be giving away one e-ARC of SKIN TIGHT per week, until my June 1 release date. Sound like fun? Then show me some skin! Note: for additional entries, I also invite you to talk about SKIN GAME in comments. But do mark spoilers if you give them. Carry on.
