CONTEST - (4) Chances for US Residents; (1) International winner

Thanks to Harlequin Ambassadors, there are four chances for US residents and (1) International chance to win a copy of Smokin' Six-Shooter by Harlequin Intrigue author B.J. Daniel's.  I just checked over at Amazon and (4) reviewers gave it 5 Stars!

Book Description:

Russell Corbett was all cowboy and wasn't about to let a lady lasso him! But Dulcie Hughes had him tied up in knots from the moment she nearly collided with his combine. She rode into town with her fancy rental car and city clothes to claim her secret inheritance. And neither tall tale nor handsome rancher would deter her from exposing a years-old cover-up at the Beaumont property. She expected to find answers, not fall in love. But like the threatening thunderhead on the horizon, the truth would come fast and fierce, and there would be no escaping the consequences.

Meet B.J. Daniels

I began writing when I was 8-years-old. It took me years to find the courage to actually admit to anyone that I wanted to be a writer. At 30, I quit a good job and found the only writing job I could find – a reporter at the local newspaper.

I finally had the courage to do what I wanted from day one: write fiction. I started small, writing short stories. Finally I wrote a book. After a couple of rewrites, I sold it to Harlequin Intrigue. Since then, I quit my newspaper job and have sold more than 50 books. I'm proud of the numerous awards I've won and that I've appeared on the USA Today Bestseller list. I feel blessed every day that I am doing what I dreamed of doing when I was a kid.
When I’m not writing, I snowboard, camp, boat, travel, play tennis and, of course, read.

To win a copy, since it's April Fools Day, have you ever played a prank on someone?  If so, tell us about it here or follow me here, or on Facebook at Harlequin Presents Author and Fans or Romance Author Buzz and Reviews.  Don't forget to leave your email address here so that you can be contacted.  For this particular contest, the winner will be announced Monday, April 4th.  Thanks for your post!

I have not played a prank on anyone I hate them and was raised in a family where we didn't think that it was funny to prank each other.


mariska said...

Nope :) I just don't like to play prank to someone.

No doubt I have both played tricks and had tricks played on me but for the life of me I can't remember any of either.

Must have been a long time ago and probably not very good !

Sorry for such a lame answer but please enter me in the giveaway anyway.

Thanks for the giveaway and for participating in this blog hop! I can't remember any elaborate pranks I've done. I'm afraid someone would want revenge and "return the favor"!

I have to admit, I am quiet the prankster. I play pranks on people all the time (even when it isn't April 1st); today, however, I did take my bosses keys and move her car to the opposite side of the building....time will tell what happens when she tries to go to lunch! lol

JessS said...

Oftentimes I'm a little goody two shoes but I've probably pranked someone, I just can't remember! When we were little my brother and I used to leave fake bugs at our granparents house to scare our grandma (in a loving way of course).

Dayen said...

When I was younger, I played many pranks on my siblings, friends and entire family, but now I really hate them.

Thanks for a chance to win ;)

I punked a colleague a couple of years ago. It was hilarious. Told him that a case had gone down a certain way, so I settled it. He was about to burst a blood vessel until my other colleagues and I started laughing. Then he realized he'd been had.

as always ♥ Carol said...

The only prank I've ever done was when I pretended to fall down the stairs with my niece's help and scared my brother really bad but I got in trouble because my mom came home and she freaked I promised never to prank any one again. So far I've kept my promise but it's tempting I love making my brother freak out lol. That's the only April fools prank I've done thanks for giveaway

as always ♥, Carol

Just the usual prank "Did you see that -enter name of famous person/hot guy here- died/admited to being gay?" LOL. Some actually believe, most don't. :)

I don't really play pranks--I joke around with my friends. That's it.
I follow you.

Jason said...

I never have, but that's just because anything I can think up sucks!

SweetShenanigans said...

When I was very young, I thought it would be funny to but a bunch of salt in my friend's drink. It did not go over so well.
