Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop

It's time for another giveaway hop.  This one is hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not a Writer and there are over 250 blogs participating, so after entering mine, make sure you check through others on the list as well.  Lots of great reading items to win!

My giveaway is for 3 books from my giveaway page which will have more books added to this week (and some taken away - I'm behind on drawing some winners) but there will be plenty of books to choose from and all kinds as well.  I really need to reduce some of my piles!  To enter, it's simple, just fill out the form.  Want a way to keep track of whether you have entered.  Leave a simple comment in the comments (I saw this on another blog and thought it was helpful).  But this is not required, only the form is required.  This is open to US/Canada only.  Giveaway runs June 21 - 24 and I will try to draw a winner by early next week.

About the Book:
I noticed his eyes. They were blue, sharp and intense. Despite the youthful glows of his suntanned face, his eyes were cold and unfriendly, suggesting he had great experience in the world and was now expecting the worst.

In her seventeenth year, Princess Alera of Hytanica faces one duty: to marry the man who will be king. But her father's choice of suitor fills her with despair.

When the palace guard captures and intruder—a boy her age with steel-blue eyes, hailing from her kingdom's greatest enemy—Alera is alarmed…and intrigued. But she could not have guessed that their clandestine meetings would unveil the dark legacy shadowing both their lands.

In this mystical world of court conspiracies and blood magic, loyalties will be tested. Courage won't be enough. And as the battle begins for everything Alera holds dear, love may be the downfall of a kingdom.

About the Author:
Cayla Kluver authored her first book at the age of two and has been writing ever since. Back then, she dictated her story to her mom and drew (scribbled) pictures herself. Today, she uses a laptop and various drafting and drawing software. The tools may be different, but the need to put things on paper remains. In addition to writing, she enjoys acting, singing, horseback riding, ballroom dance, and spending time with family, friends, and her cat, Nina. She lives in Wisconsin, sandwiched between two sisters, and recently graduated public high school in May 2008 at the age of fifteen. This is her first novel.
