PERSONAL DEMONS Amazing Race!

We were lucky enough to get our hands on an ARC of PERSONAL DEMONS and we have one word for you: HOT.

Here's a bit about the book:

If you had to choose between Heaven and Hell, which would it be?

Are you sure about that...?

Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a wicked streak. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance--even her closest friends--and it seems her senior year will be more of the same...until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can't seem to stay away from him. What she doesn't know is that Luc works in Acquisitions--for Hell--and she possesses a unique skill set that has the king of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he's as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn't stand a chance.

Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn't get what he came for. And it isn't long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.

But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay...for all of them.

Lila's Take:

I devoured it in one night while drooling over Luc and Gabe, teetering back and forth between the two, before finally settling on Luc. I've never been able to resist a bad boy. Anyway, lucky for you, PERSONAL DEMONS hits the shelves this Tuesday, September 14th so you can do some teetering of your own! Even more fun, Lisa is hosting a prize package giveaway--one for Heaven and one for Hell. Fun, right??? Even more fun, each prize package includes a signed copy of PERSONAL DEMONS AND an iPod Shuffle loaded with the PD soundtrack, among other awesome goodies. It doesn't get much better than that.

Here's where YOU come in. Visit each stop on the tour and collect the bold words (ours are marked in green). On Tuesday, Lisa will have an entry form on her blog where you'll do some rearranging of the bold words. Easy-peasy.

Also, one lucky commenter will win the following PERSONAL DEMONS swag pack.


So, what are you waiting for? Leave a comment telling us which way you swing--heaven or hell, good or evil, collect the bold words and head over to Lisa's blog on Tuesday to celebrate! Oh, and go ahead and pre-order the book as well. It's steamy.

Check out these blogs to pick up your words...

I'm already leaning Luc's way, but that's just 'cause he's made an appearance here on the web....

I would totally lean toward Heaven, but I always seem to gravite toward bad boys. So, if I could meet in the middle that would be good.

Talei said...

Aha! I did see a trailer for this but I don't think it was the final one. Definitely going to pre-order! Good or Evil? I've always got good intentions...

Theresa Milstein said...

I'd like to think I'm a good girl. But not always...

I have this book on my wishlist.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I'm a nice girl... most of the time. And my intentions are normally good. But I always had crushes on bad boys.

Sherry @ Flipping Pages for All Ages said...

I can't wait to read this book. It sounds amazing! And I love the cover!

squinto said...

Gabe seems so sweet. But I'd like to get to know both of them first. Equally, of course. :D

Cannot wait to read this book! That cover is just about the most tantalizing one I've seen in a while. And the premise? Wow. Sign me up!

Lynsey Newton said...

I always thought I was an angel girl but I'm team Luc all the way. Hell has never been so sexy!!

A. Knight said...

Phew! *swipes forehead*
I made it! I would like to be apart of the swag pack contest please!

Anyway, that was a really sticky question to ask. But, as much as Hell and it's inhabitants may be deliciously awesome, I'm taking it as more of a decision between good and evil. And in my book, evil is always ruled out. So, yes, despite the fact that the very yummy Luc is on the other side, I'd choose Heaven any and every day. (;

I think I'm going to be a chicken and take the middle road. At least, until I read the book, that is!

jacmom said...

In real life...I'd say heaven...but in books sometimes I lean more towards the evil, lol

Julia said...

I go for Heaven and good! I know that it is so much FUN to be bad but I do think (or like to!) that in the end, good always wins! :-)

This contest is so much fun!!

I think I'd go with good, but we'll see after I read it... Luc sounds pretty hot xD

JohnMPoindexter said...

I always wanted to be a bad boy.

Nice review!

Great idea running the contest.

Dee (GoodChoiceReading) said...

I just can't wait to read this book. Like I said on Elana Johnson's blog, I think I would for the the bad guy, which would probably be hell LOL. Bad boys just do it for me and I don't know why. LOL

Thank you for the giveaway!

Kristina said...

Here's where my indecision kicks in. I have no idea! I'd pick Heaven off the bat, but Hell has that "bad boy" feel to it. :/ While evil is "bad", it's still incredibly irresistible in books! Oh, I dunno... Heaven/good, I suppose.

Midnight Bloom said...

I'm a good girl, but after reading Lisa's teasers for Personal Demons, I was already falling for our bad boy Luc! ^.~

Can't wait for Tuesday when I can finally read it!

Kailia Sage said...

I do love Gabe but I've always had a thing for the bad boy!

Louisse said...

I'm going with the hot ass-kicking devil boy~ :)
Cause Luc can take me away anytime. ;)

Jessica (Confessions of a Bookaholic) said...

I'm more heaven, haha...BUT I gotta side with the bad boy. Opposites attract, right? :)

katie said...

I honestly don't know which one I would go for. I think I'm leaning toward the bad boy. =]

Name: Aine said...

based on what i've heard, i think i'll wait to read to make a definite decision.

but... if i had to choose now, i'd pick an angel.

Giada M said...

Better to wait after I read it!
I read positive review after positive review... I want this book sooo bad!>_<

I have to go with heaven-I want to float around on fluffy clouds and read. Besides, my books would catch fire down there!

van_pham said...

Heaven of course :D

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

*still fanning myself* gotta be hell, because how do you turn your back on Luc?

Caitlin said...

I just can't wait for this book to be out!! Thanks so much for the awesome contest!

Kai @ Amaterasureads said...

I have the widget on my blog and I've been waiting for it to hit 0 days, can't wait for this book to be released!

So which way do I swing... I think I'm a good girl deep down inside (heh) so... ^^

Sharli said...

Mmm how about if I go to heaven and bring Luc over? I'm sure there's enough room for him...

caitpeterson said...

~ Joy ~ said...

Poor Frannie sure has a difficult decision ... to choose between Good or Better... or maybe better and BEST! hmmmm. Luc wins for me though!
What a terrific series! I'm certainly a fan of Lisa Desrochers.

Llehn said...

Evil is more fun!!

Jen Lamoureux said...

I am a sucker for the Bad Boy but I also have a thing for angels?? WHy do we always have to choose? In this case I go with Hell

Thanks for the contest!

Ravenous Reader said...

Would I burn in HELL if I said LUC? Because I totally believe he is the man that would cross that finish line first NO MATTER WHAT!! and I want to win.

force-oblique said...

That is so awesome!
Thanks so much for this opportunity!

Gosh, I think I am totally for Luc... I always fall for the bad guy!
I am such a cliche! rotfl!

A Canadian Girl said...

I'm leaning towards Heaven just because I'm a good girl.

Angela M. said...

Hell of course, but I know if he was truly an evil person, no one would really pick him. But just a 'bad boy'--sure, why not?

Claire Dawn said...

I really can't believe it's almost Tuesday. Feels like I've been waiting forever for this.

Lauren said...

I'm swaying towards 'hotter than hell' Luc but... Gabe is sooo 'heavenly sweet'. Oooooo I'm going to have to pick Luc. x

Jennifer Hoffine said...

In real life, I always leaned toward nice guys, but I'm also attracted to contradictions in guys. If Luc is a bad boy fighting off good-guy tendencies underneath then I might just fall for him.

Kelsey said...

Hmm I would have to say evil- it's fun to live on the edge right? ;)

Lea (YA Book Queen) said...

I'm leaning more on the Heaven side...gotta stick with the good guys, right? ;)

Rain Maiden said...

Heaven today..might change tomorrow. The reviews on Personal Demons have been awesome. I sooo want to read this book.

Shellie said...

I love triangles and love stories so much more fun

Nadinax said...

What an original contest! Personal Demons sounds so good! <3

Renkellym said...

Can we swing both ways? Haha.
If I HAVE to choose, I'll go with heaven. I probably wouldn't survive the heat in hell.
Very, very excited for this book! Eep!

Caitrin said...

Can't change my tune now, hell all the way!

If I behave can I have Gabe for Christmas . . . or maybe just get Personal Demons? although Gabe is more tempting . . .

Definitely heaven! I can't wait to read this book now :-)

Stella (Ex Libris) said...

Without not having read the novel yet, based solely on the cover, I would choose Luc: dark, brooding men are my weakness :-) and he looks yummy! :-D

Thanks for the great contest!
