The Bookanistas: A Two-fer Giveaway WITCH EYES and WILDEFIRE

If you like witches, goddesses and/or heat, (lots and lots of heat) today is your lucky day because we're giving away two of the hottest books on the planet.

And they'll both be signed.

By Scott Tracey.

He only wrote one of the books.

It's kind of a long story.

So...first things first....

WITCH EYES by Scott Tracey officially debuts today and to celebrate we're giving away a signed copy. 
Here's what the back cover has to say:

A boy who can see the world's secrets and unravel spells with just a glance.

Braden's witch eyes give him an enormous power. A mere look causes a kaleidoscopic explosion of emotions, memories, darkness, and magic. But this rare gift is also his biggest curse.

Compelled to learn about his shadowed past and the family he never knew, Braden is drawn to the city of Belle Dam, where he is soon caught between two feuding witch dynasties. Sworn rivals Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe will use anything--lies, manipulation, illusion, and even murder--to seize control of Braden's powers. To stop an ancient evil from destroying the town, Braden must master his gift, even through the shocking discovery that Jason is his father. While his feelings for an enigmatic boy named Trey grow deeper, Braden realizes a terrible truth: Trey is Catherine Lansing's son . . . and Braden may be destined to kill him.

LiLa's Take:
Welcome to Belle Dam, bitches. A word of advice: Do not pick up WITCH EYES if you have any remotely pressing obligations because you will not want to put this book down. Between the feuding families, the crazy critters and the the chemistry between Braden and Trey there is something for everyone in this book. The twisty plot will have you turning pages and the engaging cast of characters will leave you begging for more. And the kissing scene??? I won't go into details, because you'll know it when you read it. One word for you: SaWoon.

Judge this book by its cover?
Hell. Yes. It's perfection. Creepy, intriguing and gorgeous - just like the book itself. Everyone needs a copy of WITCH EYES on their bookshelf. Total shelf candy.

Up next is the hilarious Karsten Knight's debut, WILDEFIRE.

Here's what the back cover has to say:

Every flame begins with a spark.

Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

LiLa's Take:
Gods and goddesses as you've never seen them before. I LOVED ASH. Finally a self-confident, kick ass narrator who's way too busy dealing with her crazy sister to waste too much time mooning around about boys. Honestly, I'm pretty sure The Regulator would want to adopt this little Volcano goddess and make her do useful things like light fires in the fireplace and take the candles in birthday cakes to a whole new level. The characters are diverse, quick witted and sexy and holy twist Batman, the last scene will leave you stalking poor Karsten for the next book in the series.

Judge this book by its cover? Obviously. It's hot, the book is hot. Win. Win.

As much as we love teasing you with fantastic books every week, this time we're taking pity on our poor blog readers and giving both of these amazing books to one lucky reader. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. Good luck!!!

Awesome giveaway! I've been meaning to read Wildefire but I haven't had time :( It does sound like a great book though :)

Matthew MacNish said...

People always assume that authors are ugly, awkward hermits, and I'm sure many are, but Scott and Karsten are two of the hottest, nicest dudes around.

Also: they can write.

You've got my email.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I already have both books so don't enter me in the contest. I'm halfway through Witches Eyes and loving it. Can't wait to read Wildefire.

Laura Pauling said...

I was going to make a comment about already stalking Karsten Knight, but it sounded creepy and a lot less funny then I intended.

Let's just say Wildfire is an awesome read, I can't wait to read Witch Eyes and Karsten and Scott are both hilariously entertaining on Twitter.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
