Last Night’s Scandal: Today’s ARC!

Book CoverI’ll get right to the good part, with no flirting around. I have ARCs to give away of Loretta Chase’s 27 July book “Last Night’s Scandal.” In fact, I have six ARC copies.

And I have a grand prize, too: a selection of her printed backlist, including Don’t Tempt Me, Last Hellion, Lord of Scoundrels, Not Quite a Lady, and Your Scandalous Ways. AND a $25 gift card to your choice of Amazon or

You wish to have? Sure you wish to have. It’s Loretta Chase!

All you have to do: get crazy and tell me what would you do for a Loretta Chase book – and a selection of her backlist? Much like what you’d do for a Klondike bar, only MORE BETTERER AND AWESOMERERST because did I mention it’s Loretta Chase? It’s Loretta Chase! So get creative and share, and I’ll pick the winners over the weekend. You have 24 hours, so get cracking!

Disclaimer: I’m not being compensated for this giveaway, except that I get to talk about Loretta Chase and write words like “betterer.” No additives or preservatives. Slippery when wet. You give love a bad name.  Sealed for your protection.

    Since I’ve only just discovered the wonderfulness of LC, I’d read a book a day!! But knowing me, it would probably be quickerer than that!!

    and it’s so much fun using extra-er type words, too!!

    Okay,  I have to enter because I have never read Loretta Chase…I feel properly chastized since she sounds pretty well-known and liked.  So I guess I need to check out some of her stuff. 

    Consider this my HaBO plea:  Which LC novel should I start with?

    Mmmm…  a new Loretta Chase – I’d give up air conditioning during a heat wave for that ‘cause anything from LC is bound to be too hot for the AC to do any gooderer anyway!

    I would disguise myself as a virgin stable girl and when a playboy sheik comes sniffing around, giving orders, making assumptions, and thinking only with that enormous . . .ego . . . of his, I would actually let him live.

    Until I won some Loretta Chase books.  Which I would then read on death row.

    How’s that?

    It was the first romance I ever read, and I’ve been addicted ever since. My greatest disappointment has been that while some of the books I’ve read have been wonderful, no author has been as consistently wonderful as Ms. Chase.

    (now34? I wish!)

    What would I do-ooo ooo / For a LC book?
    I would totally take them to the local pub where I would sit at the bar and read them *without first covering up the clinch cover with multiple Post-It notes*.

    I have yet to read a Loretta Chase! SB Sarah – I made the mistake (thanks to you) of starting Lord of Scoundrels and the Julia Quinn book the Duke and I at the same time (one was digital, one in paper) and the JQ book hooked me and I’ve been plowing through the Bridgertons and neglected the Chase book! I’ll have to get back to her since she clearly must be awesome if the comments are any indication.

    And totally OT – but at first glance did anyone else think the dude in the Patricia Rice book ad was totally nekkid? Flesh colored breeches ahoy!

    My veriword: eight48 – yes, there are 8 Bridgertons, so it will probably be 48 days til I manage to get back to the Chase book. (I have kids, it takes me awhile to scrounge up enough time to finish a book)

    How about supply you with Klondike bar every day? :)
    Or go without any chocolate while reading all those awesome books ;)

    For a Loretta Chase book, I’d let you, SB Sarah, have the last Klondike Reeses Ice Cream bar currently in my freezer. Of course I might ask you to let me lick the paper but that’s just a weirdness I indulge in.

    Loretta Chase is worth giving up ice cream for.

    Nadia says:

    Don’t tempt me, now – I would give up my scandalous ways of being not quite a lady, stop dating those Mr. Impossibles and lords of scoundrels, denounce my association with the last hellion, and start hanging out with the Miss Wonderfuls of the world.  Unless we all become captives of the night on a knave’s wager, of course, then I’d have to rely on the mad Earl’s bride, the English witch, and the Devil’s Delilah to rescue us.

    Sorry, it’s early, LOL.

    I would post a comment on an internet forum. In it, I might even promise to do something else, knowing full well I wouldn’t actually have to do that thing.

    I would go to work dressed in full Regency costume and pretend to be a time traveler all day. “What, pray tell, is this strange box with the pictures upon it? And why are these children not working? School? Surely their parents cannot afford school for all of them!”

    Holly says:

    Loretta Chase?  I would pull an all nighter and not stop reading until I was finished.  Who needs to sleep when they have Loretta Chase?

    Katie says:

    Given that I am afraid of heights, I would sky-dive and jump out of a helicopter WHILE dressed in Regency England era dress and CORSET.

    As you tell, I really want to win :)

    Gail W. says:

    What would I do for a Loretta Chase book?

    Give up breathing? (No can’t do that, I want to be around to read her books)

    Give up eating? (While in the short run that would be great for my figure, in the long run that wouldn’t be a good idea either)

    How about chocolate? (Believe me when I tell you it is much safer for those around me if I can eat chocolate at least once a month, but for a Loretta Chase book I’d be willing to do it… for six months… three? how about two? Ok, probably only one month)

    I would bravely marry the mustachioed man who holds the mortgage to our family estate.  Even if he didn’t turn out to be a prince in disguise.

    worked46? This old chestnut has worked at LEAST 46 times before.

    What I’d do for a LC book I think I would be permanently banned from the group if I truly wrote it here. Lets just say it is way erererererer than a screaming O.

    Brooks*belle says:

    What would I do for the LC prize?

    Give up my Kindle,chocolate, and sex for a month.  And tell perfect strangers on the street exactly how much I weigh.

    Laura (in PA) says:

    I would drive 3 hours to Maryland to see her at a signing that also includes Nora Roberts and spend a fun weekend with all my wacko Romance fan friends. Oh wait, I’m already doing that this weekend.

    Um, I’d do SB Sarah’s laundry for one week, and I’d even mate the socks.

    Reneesance says:

    I would voluntarily read all of Cassie Edwards backlist while simultaniously watching FOX NEWS and listening to The Best of Menudo CD collection all to prove my dedication to Loretta Chase.  And I would really REALLY hope I won because I’d have to have a LOT of Loretta Chase to get all that horrible out of my head afterwards!

    ijinx says:

    For a Loretta Chase book…
    I’d marry a somewhat scary, but tall and sexy duke (who is a great guy on the inside) after a passionate courtship, have a couple of children and live happily ever after.

    (And if I don’t get the ARC, heck, I’ll just buy the book, but I wanted to say that stuff above for a while now XD)

    Hannah says:

    For a Loretta Chase book, I’d stand on a busy corner downtown, reading aloud from Lord of Scoundrels, street preacher style, spreading the message of LUURVE!

    romantic@heart says:

    Hmmm …. for a Loretta Chase book I will …

    shamelessly admit that I embrace both vampire and werewolf, want to pitch Bella over a cliff and let free my 16 year old self who wants to take her place. Team JakeWard!

    hope 94? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!! I have plenty hope.

    Lisa Richardson says:

    Pssst, I have See’s Candy!  Wait, is that considered bribery?  Who cares?!

    Besides, I’d be willing to push my TBR pile under the bed, and move Loretta’s books right to the top. AND…..stay home all day and read them. 

    (This is sounding more and more like Brer Rabbit saying, “Oh no, don’t throw me in the briar patch!”)

    I’ve read LORD OF SCOUNDRELS and am reading DON’T TEMPT ME currently as an e-book from my library. I loved LORD OF SCOUNDRELS, not so much with DON’T TEMPT ME. I would really LOVE to win so I can read more of her books!

    Lets see…what would I do…? I would let you babysit my 1 year old for a few days while I demolished her books! (I think that might benefit me more than you though…)

    youre84-No I’m not!

    Question for Sarah-are you picking random winners or are you picking based on the fun and creativity of the answers. Because I’m sure I would have to come up with something better than the above to win if that is the case.

    Is this competition open for non-US and Canada residents?

    For an ARC of the newest Loretta Chase (which I’ve already pre-ordered from Amazon – but if I got the ARC I would give the copy I bought to a friend to get them hooked as well) I would give up Coke and chocolate for a month. And I really really don’t function well without Coke or the occasional sweet. But for Loretta Chase, I would manage.

    Marcella says:

    Mr Impossible – sigh – just rererereread that one.

    I’d gladly give up chocolate for a year. Hmm, or French fries for a month…

    Lauren says:

    I hop trains, planes, automobiles in a fantastic 70s travel adventure montage and go through peril and dangers like it were a great mystery/race caper for Loretta Chase ARC.

    Or traipse through the countryside looking for said hidden ARC, as I think that’s what the protagonists would do.

    Tarja says:

    For Loretta Chase, I would drop everything else I was reading and curl on my sofa and read nonstop until I was through all the books.

    I roared through battered copies of Loretta Chase at my local library (I pay yearly for the privilege, and believe me it is worth it cuz I live the hellangone in the countryside) and then started searching bookstores for more LC and couldn’t find her! ACK! Grave fears that she’d decided to leave commerce behind and exercise her talents elsewhere, and lo, SMTB dangled a lifeline with coming attractions! And, SBTB ALSO teased with Tessa Dare and I FOUND her in town at at B&N (library hasn’t caught her wave yet) and fell in LOVE and THEN, finally,  LC’s most tempting new book was in the store! Now trying to find more Dare—thanks SB for great reviews!
