Sizzling Book Club Pick for October: What I Did for a Duke by Julie Anne Long - Win a Copy!

Smart Bitch Sarah's Sizzling Book ClubAnnouncing the October book club pick: What I Did for a Duke by Julie Anne Long

What I Did for a Duke - Julie Ann Long - Link to All RomanceHere's the summary: 

For years, he's been an object of fear, fascination . . . and fantasy. But of all the wicked rumors that shadow the formidable Alexander Moncrieffe, Duke of Falconbridge, the ton knows one thing for certain: only fools dare cross him. And when Ian Eversea does just that, Moncrieffe knows the perfect revenge: he'll seduce Ian's innocent sister, Genevieve—the only Eversea as yet untouched by scandal. First he'll capture her heart . . . and then he'll break it.

But everything about Genevieve is unexpected: the passion simmering beneath her cool control, the sharp wit tempered by gentleness . . . And though Genevieve has heard the whispers about the duke's dark past, and knows she trifles with him at her peril, one incendiary kiss tempts her deeper into a world of extraordinary sensuality. Until Genevieve is faced with a fateful choice . . . is there anything she won't do for a duke?

There were moments when I read this book that I laughed aloud so hard my kids came running because the tv wasn't supposed to be on and clearly I had to be watching tv to be laughing that hard. I found this book to be hilarious and fun and smart and so entertaining – and I cannot wait to discuss it!

    I would definitely wear a nightgown in a windstorm. Maybe even be naked in a rainstorm… But then, I’d do that anyway.

    I would shave EVERYTHING (and suffer the horrible itching) for a book by Julie Anne Long!

    ooooohhh . . . but I would be super smooth for a day and hubby would be happy!!

    What would I do for a copy?  I have no idea.  Read out loud to the chickens?  Put the book in our family pictures?  Read it?  Beats me!  If I win I’d love a digital copy that will work on my Nook.  Cause, yea, I don’t even know what will work!

    I would allow the Duke to do whatever I ask him to (why does he need to be in charge . .. ?) Paper copy could be cool, though epub fine if you run out.

    I’d clean my apartment for What I Did for A Duke (I hate cleaning) (I’m also betting my boyfriend is crossing his fingers hoping I win this), I’d TRY not to eat chocolate for a week, I’d worship and reread and be all kinds of fangirl over it!
    I was totally swept away by What I Did for a Duke when I read it, so YES PLEASE enter me! I’d prefer a paper copy.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    For a free copy of a book, clearly, I would post a comment for a mere chance. What else I might do I’m not sure. Now, for a chance to read it and talk about it with like minded folks, I would do a tap dance.

    Lauren Clancy says:

    I would listen to the Head On commercials for days for a Duke. paper please, but if you run out, I can do compatible with Kindle e-books. :)

    i own this book in multiple formats b/c it is so freaking good and if i’m ever on a deserted island, i will have a variety of ways to read this book b/f the battery dies.  i just re-read it again and was STILL laughing at the “moons disappearing over the windowsill”.  harharhar.  i wish i were a virgin reader so i could be won over all over again!

    Tam B. says:

    I would admit in what seems to be fairly knowledgable company that I have read this book OR a book by the author (gasp and hangs head in shame).  Please don’t kick me out! 

    So I obviously need you to take me in hand and educate me with a copy (e-version) of this book so that I can then go forth and sing it’s praises to the masses (or just post on facebook about it).

    Tam B. says:

    I forgot the all important NOT in that opening sentence. 

    (Obviously I need my proof reading taken in hand too.)

    I would dance by myself in a windstorm in my nightgown.  Digital please!

    Dede says:

    What would I do for a copy? I’d move it right to the top of my reading list! For my Kindle device!

    Nali says:

    I would totally tackle cleaning out the scary places at the back of my fridge.
    Oh, wait… I have to do that anyways, and I have nothing to read so it is getting harder to avoid it. :P

    I would also admit that I prefer paper books… because I don’t own an e-reader. Of any sort. Because I am the world’s most technologically literate Luddite, it seems.

    I would allow him to ravish me.

    Good thing I checked my NOOK library first—I was going to enter, but realized I had bought this one recently (though I think at the time I paid 1.99). Finally, a book I already have in my pile for the book club. :D

    Though I haven’t read the previous books in this series—will I be lost?

    (Don’t enter me!)

    What I wouldn’t do is give up my paper copies of the Pennyroyal Green series—but for a Kindle copy of this e-book—ummm, I’d get on the treadmill for the length of time it took me to read the book again. Not all at once, of course—I’m too fluffy.

    This book is amazing.

    I would give up chocolate for a day for a copy of this book for my Kindle.

    PamG says:

    What would I do for What I Did With a Duke? Why, I would post a comment, of course!  And furthermore, should what I did not do, I’ll cough up the .99!  Doo-wa-diddy-diddy-dum-diddy-duke….

  25. 25
    PamG says:

    Oops!  Either format would diddy-do!

    Connie Fischer says:

    I would tell the world what a wonderful author Julie Anne Long is.  Oh wait, I think I’ve already done that.  Does it still count?  :-)

    Would LOVE a print copy.  Pretty please with sugar on top!

    Shiny says:

    I would try to finish my master’s thesis even faster for this book (cause I can’t read it till I do – it’s due in two weeks and only half written) – paper please, but e-book is fine if not.

    megsan says:

    What would I do for a copy? Ask really nicely in a sing-songy voice

    What would I do with a copy? Read it :)

    I would prefer an ebook copy as all print copy book buying is on hold until I own a big enough bookcase (for which I first need to own a home that can house a big enough bookcase)

    Sheila M says:

    I would cook for a Duke- and there’s nothing I hate more than cooking.

    Paper please.

    I would give up half and half in my coffee in favor of soy milk.  I”d like paper, please.
