Release Day Giveaway: Isle of Capri by A.J. Llewellyn

3

To celebrate the release of the third book in the Relentless series, A.J. Llewellyn is doing a book giveaway for Isle of Capri right here on the Rainbow Book Reviews blog. You can win an e-copy of the book, and all you need to participate is leave a comment right here by next Thursday, February 7, and Lena and I will select a winner by random draw.

Another draw for a print book copy will follow as soon as the book becomes available in print in a few weeks. Watch this space!

Blurb:
British soap star Marius Treadway’s week has gone to hell. Still reeling from a failed romance, he quit his TV show only to learn that his sizable business investments are nothing but scams. Depressed and needing time to rethink his future, he travels to the island of Capri to visit his long-lost Uncle Toppy and twin cousins, Zeca and Alex.

At first, life seems relaxing and enjoyable on the sun-drenched, lemon-scented island, but it soon becomes clear that Alex’s private hotel is being targeted for crime, possibly because it’s gay-owned. Then, one of the oldest gay business owners in Capri Town finds his store trashed.

Determined to help his family, Marius soon meets dazzling Brazilian soccer player Crisanto Alvarez, who makes a play for him. Can it really be that, underneath it all, the isle of Capri is a healer of hearts?

Dreamspinner donates to the It Gets Better Project

GUEST POST by DREAMSPINNER PRESS

A few days ago, Becky from mrsconditreadsbooks.com sent us this e-mail:

“We’ve created our first Special Event for this book. One of our reviewers has a teenaged son who was assigned by his teacher a year-long project to study something of concern to society. He chose gay marriage. Part of this assignment was to read a novel on the topic. As you can imagine, his mother had quite a time finding an age-appropriate novel that she felt comfortable letting him read, but another author recommended The British Devil and both of them enjoyed it very much.

I’ve posted the mother’s comments as well as the teenager’s review. It does contain some spoilers but that was part of his assignment so we put a warning on the review. We are donating $50 to the It Gets Better Project in honor of this young man’s hard work, and are encouraging others to donate to the gay rights cause of their choice.

The British Devil by Greg Hogben http://mrsconditreadsbooks.com/index.php/?p=10049
January 31, 2013
This is the only post for that day, as it is a Special Event.”

BritishDevil

We at DSP are extremely humbled and honored that one of our books was chosen for this cause. That is why we are offering 30% off both the e-book and paperback of The British Devil from Jan 31- Feb 3 to encourage people to read it for themselves. All the royalties from this special sale will be donated to the It Gets Better Project.

We want to thank Matthew and mrsconditreadsbooks.com for this special event.

The DSP Team.
