Okay, so what is the book giveaway today, you are wondering? Well, I’ll tell you: one commenter today will win a copy of Jaci Burton’s Taken by Sin!! Another good reason to go to Lea’s blog today: she has a wonderful review of Jaci’s book here! Leave a comment about Jaci, her books or about Lea’s reviews and you’ll be entered to win Taken by Sin tomorrow morning!


Temptation. Sin. Seduction. He’s taking her all the way….


It’s a mission that could cost him his career and his life. But the woman he just rescued—his lover for one unforgettable night—has something Dalton desperately needs. That’s why the fearless demon hunter is risking everything to spirit Isabelle to a secret hideaway in the Louisiana bayou. Saving her is one thing. Banishing the demon inside her is another. Especially when this gorgeous seductress brings out the devil in him.

Isabelle can see the passion roaring inside Dalton—and it both frightens and arouses her. Is Dalton her enemy or her savior? All she knows is he’s beyond seductive and igniting all sorts of conflicting feelings. All Dalton knows is that they’re both in big trouble—hunted by demons and demon hunters alike in an all-out war for survival. As their pursuers close in and passion overtakes them both, Dalton must make a stunning choice…. Caught between sin and salvation, between darkness and light, will he make the ultimate sacrifice to save the woman he loves?

I spoke to Jaci yesterday, and she said she’d try and stop by today. So I’m leaving her a few questions:

Jaci, what’s the most exciting moment you recall from your writing career? What are your plans this summer? Working feverishly, or hardly working? What can we expect from you next?

    Hi Beth
    I’m a huge fan of Jaci’s contemporary books. Just finished Jaci’s first demon hunter book on Lea’s recommendation -so good. Just starting the second one. Lea’s reviews make books come alive. That girl could make me read an instruction manual LOL. Loved her review of Sweet Restraint!!
    Have a great week.

    Hey Beth;

    Thank you so much for the awesome compliment. It means more than you can ever know!

    Please don’t enter me in today’s draw, as you know I read Jaci’s AWESOME book “Taken by Sin” and thoroughly enjoyed it and the entire series.

    As for “Sweet Restraint”, well, what can I say but it blew me away.

    Thanks again Beth. 😀

    I love Jaci’s Demon Hunter series, they are on my keeper shelf. I’m looking forward to reading Taken By Sin, but I’m wondering if it’s the last book in the series? ( Please, say No!)

    Love Jc demon books. I need to get caught up on them. Can’t remember if this is the 3rd or 4th one. I’ve only read the first two and the were fantastic.

    Hi Beth and thanks so much for featuring Taken By Sin today, and for giving away a copy of my book. You rock! And thanks to those of you stopping by today. I appreciate you reading my books, and if you haven’t yet, I hope you’ll give them a try.

    Now to answer those questions you asked, Beth:

    What’s the most exciting moment you recall from your writing career?
    That would have to be the auction for the first book in my Demon Hunter series, Surviving Demon Island. Having one publisher want to buy your book is exciting enough. Having several lined up and bidding on them? It’s a writer’s dream come true and probably the most exciting moment of my writing career so far. I was thrilled!

    What are your plans this summer? Working feverishly, or hardly working?
    What I’d really like to be doing this summer is lying on a beach summer with white sand, the bluest ocean, and the biggest cocktail on record. Sadly, that’s not happening. This summer I’m taking a couple small trips with my husband, nothing major and no beach in sight. *sigh* . I have a book due October 1st and expecting edits any day now on a couple books, plus busy with some family things, so that sums up my summer.

    What can we expect from you next?
    Holiday Heat releases in print in September from Samhain Publishing, containing my novella, Unraveled, along with Lauren Dane’s Sweet Charity. After that I won’t have any new releases until 2010. Laced With Desire anthology releases in February, then my single title Bound, Branded & Brazen in March, along with a couple releases in summer and fall. I can’t wait!

    Cheryl – In answer to your question, Taken By Sin wasn’t written as the last book in this series. So let’s hope it isn’t! That’s entirely up to my publisher, though, so fingers crossed. 🙂

  12. Jaci Burton
      · June 29th, 2009 at 10:00 am · Link

    Pam – Taken By Sin is the 4th book in the series. The order of books is:

    Surviving Demon Island
    Hunting The Demon
    The Darkest Touch
    Taken By Sin

    *waving* Hi, Jaci!

    I love the auction thing–what can be more exciting for an author?

    Well, I guess that THE CALL is as exciting, but if they are both for the same novel 😀
