Shelf Envy and Giveaway with Debra Mullins

Good morning, Readers!

On the blog this morning is author of numerous historical novels, Debra Mullins. As my tour stop for her latest work Prodigal Son, Debra was gracious enough to let us snoop around her shelves. She, along with Tor Books has also offered to give away three copies of her novel for US and Canadian residents! So let’s browse her shelves and enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post, will ya? 😉

It looks like a vast selection of historical romances and paranormal novels rule Debra’s shelves. There’s quite a few that I’ve always wanted to start reading but have yet to find the time. Let’s see if she can give us a recommendation, shall we? 🙂

1.    What was the last book you read? What are you currently reading? What book is on your wish list?
The last book I read was CONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE BITCH by Alison Arngrim. I’m currently reading RISE OF THE BLOOD by Lucienne Diver. The book on my wish list is DARK WITCH by Nora Roberts.
2.     Name a book that you’ve read more than once. Why?
I have to name several. THE BRIDE by Julie Garwood. It’s the first book of hers that I ever read, and I come back to it over and over again because I love fish out of water stories. Another is The Last Herald Mage trilogy by Mercedes Lackey: MAGIC’S PAWN, MAGIC’S PROMISE and MAGIC’S PRICE. I have several copies of each because they keep falling apart from me reading them so much. Vanyel is a truly tormented character, but he’s a hero until the very end.
3.     Is there a book that confirm your aspirations to write?
Anything by Nora Roberts and especially J.D. Robb. I was reading Nora since her very first Silhouette Romance, and she continues to inspire.
4.     Name your ultimate top 5 authors.
Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb, Mercedes Lackey, Susan Squires, Jayne Castle, Robin D. Owens, Marjorie M. Liu
5.     What is your desert island book?
Any of The Last Herald Mage trilogy by Mercedes Lackey.

I own several of Nora Roberts’ books but have yet to tackle them. It’s high time, I think. 

Thanks, Debra for stopping by the blog today! I’d just like to mention that this post almost didn’t go up today. I had problems with my computer so I had to find another one that works! Oy. 

Anyway, check out her latest work!
Prodigal Son [Truth Seers, #1] by Debra Mullins
Tor Books | October 1st, 2013
Paranormal Romance
SUMMARY:
Prodigal Son—the new paranormal romance from acclaimed historical romance author Debra Mullins
Bounty hunter Rafe Montana is a Seer, descended from the fabled Atlanteans. He uses his inherited power to “see” criminals across the globe and track them down, and he’s just started on a new case. Danny Cangialosi is accused of disappearing with a stolen car…but for the first time in his life, when Rafe goes looking, he is unable to “see” him. Instead, his search leads him to Danny’s stubborn, meddling, and verycute stepsister, Cara McGaffigan.
Cara is looking for Danny, too, but not to turn him in. He is her brother, after all, and she’s convinced he has a good heart. If she can just find him before the cops do, she’ll figure out a way to get him out of this. But Cara didn’t count on a scorching-hot bounty hunter getting in her way.
Despite instant chemistry, Rafe and Cara know they’re never going to see eye-to-eye when it comes to Danny. What they don’t know is that Danny didn’t just steal a car—he stole a precious stone, a stone right out of the legends of Atlantis. It holds powers they can only dream of…and its owner wants it back.
