WINTER' DESIRE "Scavenger Hunt"!

Okay, it's grand prize time!! But we're going to make you *work* for it, LOL!

Here's how it's going to work--I will list six questions. The answers can be found here in the past three posts, from the excerpts of the three novellas in WINTER'S DESIRE. Find the answers, and post your answers in the comments section.

The FIRST person to post the correct answers will win the GRAND PRIZE, the gorgeous "Winter's Sparkle" necklace from Gaelsong (but note, it's *just* the necklace--they didn't have any more earrings available).

The SECOND person to post the correct answers will win the SECOND PRIZE, the oh-so-hot Gods of Football calendar (if we can pry it from Amanda's hands, that is!).

And the THIRD person to post the correct answers will win the THIRD PRIZE, Loreena McKennitt's "A Midwinter Night's Dream" CD (trust me, the music is as gorgeous as the album artwork!).

Okay....is everyone ready? Here goes!

1. From Lover's Dawn: What color gown is Aisling wearing?

2. From Winter Awakening: The vast clear summer sky was awash with what?

3. From Midnight Whispers: What was Sinead sipping at the Solstice Celebration?

4. From Lover's Dawn: A dollop of what remained on Aisling's lip?

5. From Winter Awakening: Sabeline declared herself "old" by what?

6. From Midnight Whispers: Sinead sees a vision of her late husband David wearing a mask--what two colors is the mask?

On your mark, get set, go!

LOL, Sorry Booklover, however if you wish to decline the second prize, you are welcome to decline!
Please let is know!!

Kristina Cook/Kristi Astor said...

Yep, so far we have two winners....one more to go!

Kristina Cook/Kristi Astor said...

Ranearia, email me your snail mail info at KCHWriter@aol.com (put LIT winner in the subject line), and I'll get the necklace shipped out ASAP!

Amanda McIntyre said...

Does this mean every one is in bed?

Does it mean that no one wants a Gods of Football calendar or a fantastimical CD from Lorenna McKennitt?

Come on people--or we'll be forced to do something drastic!

Cecile said...

Hey if Booklover does not want her Calendar... I will be very happy to **cough cough** take it off her hands!! You just let me know.. I will take one for the team!!!! It will be hard, but I will manage!!
Thanks alot you ladies!

Kristina Cook/Kristi Astor said...

Cecile, I love your willingness to 'take one for the team,' LOL!

Booklover has first dibs on the calendar--if she wants, she can trade you for the CD. But...up to her!

Amazed that there were only 5 min. between Ranearia's and Booklover's posts. SO close!

Amanda McIntyre said...

what a trooper you are Cecile!
and congrats to the winners!


Cecile said...

Yea, I waited all night for the hunt... And stepped away from the computer for a couple of minutes!! But I am very happy for my CD! Thank you ladies rock!!

flchen1 said...

Congrats, Ranearia, Booklover, and Cecile! Enjoy the goodies! Thanks for the excerpts, ladies! Didn't manage to make it back to the computer in time for the hunt ;P

ranearia said...

*laughs* I was trying for the calender ;D

Cecile said...

~R... I think we all were!!LMAO!!!!

flchen1 said...

LOL! Well, of course! That's quite a calendar :D

Booklover1335 said...

Hands off ladies! Gods of football are mine....all mine! I'll gladly take them :) A year's worth of yumminess is definitely a great prize.

Amanda...I emailed you back with my addy. Thanks Lord CM and all of the ladies at LIT! Congrats on A Winter's Desire.

Amanda McIntyre said...

I wish I could harness all of this energy, ladies! I am thrilled that you are all happy with your prizes!

Was everyone watching Dancing with the Stars last night? LOL

Well, I'll be sobbing..er, shipping the GOF calendar to Booklover shortly...just a few more minutes alone...

I want you to know I've been good and havent even cracked the seal..*sob...sorry...

But as I mentioned, just ignore any lick marks on the cellophane..

I have to order that CD as well--anything McKennit has to be primo!

And though I am not able to wear jewelry due to allergies, that necklace is spot on refelctive of the essence of Winters Desire! We all agreed immediately on that one! Congrats to you all ladies!

Stay tuned for a special announcement regarding the upcoming Romantic Times Convention!!!
