It's Carnival time - enter the Spring Blog Carnival

I love taking part in giveaways.  I love to read too much and share my love of reading with others.  I try to only give away books that I like (well, ,most of the time).  This carnival is hosted by some fantastic bloggers!  They are : Candace’s Book Blog, Reading Angel, Pure Imagination, and The Book Swarm .

Here is what I am giving away:

The First two books in the Drake Chronicles by Alyxandra Harvey, a Laney bookmark, and a Vampire bookmark.

Hearts at Stake: Description from Goodreads: The Drakes are rather different to your usual neighbours. They are vampires and some of the members of the family date back to the twelfth century. One of the children, Solange, is the only born female vampire known and, as such, she poses a direct threat to the vampire queen. Her best friend Lucy is human, and when Solange is kidnapped Lucy and Solange's brother, Nicholas, set out to save her. Lucy soon discovers that she would like to be more than just friends with Nicholas. But how does one go about dating a vampire? Meanwhile, Solange finds an unlikely ally in Kieran, a vampire slayer on the hunt for his father's killer. Also known as "Hearts At Stake."

Blood Feud: Description from Goodreads: The action and romance continue as the Drakes face a new vampire with a 200-year-old grudge. It’s been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix barely survived the French Revolution. Now she’s made her way back to the living and she must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who left her for dead the day she turned into a vampire. That’s if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is as sweet as the revenge she seeks.
The clans are gathering for Helena’s royal coronation as the next vampire queen, and new alliances are beginning to form now that the old rifts of Lady Natasha’s reign have started to heal. But with a new common enemy, Leander Montmarte—a vicious leader who hopes to force Solange to marry him and usurp the power of the throne for himself—the clans must stand together to preserve the peace he threatens to destroy.

This second adventure in the Drake Chronicles—told from both Logan’s and Isabeau’s perspectives—has all the same butt-kicking action, heart-pounding romances and snarky humor that readers loved in Hearts at Stake, as well as exciting new revelations about the vampire dynasties to keep readers coming back for more.

I will be sending out this package to one winner.  This is an international giveaway, so as long as you have an address that I can ship to (I live in the US), you can enter.  I promise to mail it and hope that you have a secure mailing address, I cannot be responsible for lost packages. You must be at least 13 years old to enter and follow me on GFC.  There are extra entries for Networked Blogs, email subscription (You must confirm it, or it doesn't count), twitter and goodreads.  All are located in a row in the right hand side bar.  This contest ends at midnight Pacific  Daylight Savings time on the 8th.
