FRIGHT NIGHT Halloween Hop! THE WINTER KING Review

Click to view slideshow.   HOSTED BY HERDING CATS & BURNING SOUP and SIMPLY ANGELA.  Thanks! I thought I would do something a little different here.  I am going to go from Vampires with my audiobook copy of Lara Adrian’s A TOUCH OF MIDNIGHT (reviewed yesterday) to Mages and Monsters with a short review of THE WINTER KING (below the entry form). These two paranormals run the gamut from sexy alien vampires to high-fantasy sexy paranormals. They are the prizes for the hop! I enjoyed them both. The WINTER KING part of the prize is a new paperback copy from AVON and the A TOUCH OF MIDNIGHT  part is an “open box.” I used the MP3 CD to download the book so I could listen to it, but other than not having plastic on it, it works fine. HOW TO ENTER:   Just comment and use the Rafflecopter form. Please...
