GIVEAWAY: Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios!

You guys may recall me hinting during my audio preview / giveaway of Heather Demetrios' Exquisite Captive that there'd be another copy coming your way (hopefullyfingerscrossedamIright?). Well, by *another* copy, what I really meant was: 24 of them.
For serious.
Heather's Blogger Caravan is giving away TWENTY FOUR signed copies of Exquisite Captive this month, as part of a giveaway relay, which is pretty damn awesome, if you ask me. Basically, every week day throughout November (and a bit into December), a different blogger is hosting a flash giveaway, and then passing the torch off to the next blogger to giveaway the next copy, and so on, etc., etc., amen.
If this is confusing at all to you, don't worry — some awesome person made a video explaining how the whole thing works (hint: it's me). Check it out below, and then skip down to find out who won yesterday's giveaway, or enter to win in mine!

Pretty nifty, right? I KNOW.
And so, the winner of yesterday's giveaway over at The Nerd Herd Reads is *drum roll please*...
Ashley Ferguson!
Congratulations, Ashley! Keep an eye out for an email from RachelMarie about your winnings. =)
Bummed you didn't win yesterday's giveaway? HAVE NO FEAR, it's my turn to give away a copy now!

If you've been following the caravan, you're used to the drill by now, but if you're new to it: for day 12 of the giveaway relay, I am offering up one hardcover copy of Exquisite Captive plus a bookplate, signed by Heather! This giveaway is US only, and ends at midnight tonight! Enter on the Rafflecopter below. The winner will be announced in tomorrow's giveaway, so make sure to stop by Book Chic tomorrow to see if you won (or to enter again if you didn't!)
You can see the whole list of stops here.
Also, if you missed that audio preview, you should totally go check it out, 'cause the narration is FAB, and it'll give you a taste of the book!
Good luck!

480 pages
Published October 7th 2014 by Balzer+Bray
Forced to obey her master.
Compelled to help her enemy.
Determined to free herself.

Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Stuffed into a bottle and sold by a slave trader, she’s now in hiding on the dark caravan, the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human masters’ every command. She’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to free Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother—all for an unbearably high price. Nalia’s not sure she can trust him, but Raif’s her only hope of escape. With her enemies on the hunt, Earth has become more perilous than ever for Nalia. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle…and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him. Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at a price too terrible to pay: but how far is she willing to go for it?

Inspired by Arabian Nights, EXQUISITE CAPTIVE brings to life a deliciously seductive world where a wish can be a curse and shadows are sometimes safer than the light.

When she's not traipsing around the world or spending time in imaginary places, Heather Demetrios lives with her husband in New York City. Originally from Los Angeles, she now calls the East Coast home. Heather is a recipient of the PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Discovery Award for her debut novel, Something Real, which Publisher's Weekly calls “[An] addictive yet thoughtful debut” about reality TV stardom. She is the author of EXQUISITE CAPTIVE, a smoldering fantasy about jinn in Los Angeles and what Kirkus called in its starred review "an intoxicating, richly realized realm of magic, politics, spirituality and history" (#1 in the DARK CARAVAN CYCLE). She is also the author of the upcoming I’ll Meet You There (Winter 2015). I’ll Meet You There is a love story about a young combat veteran and a girl trapped in their small town, both struggling to escape the war at home. Heather is the founder of Live Your What, an organization dedicated to fostering passion in people of all ages and creating writing opportunities for underserved youth. She is proud to have an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. You can always find her on Twitter (@HDemetrios), ogling the military dogs she wants to adopt (but can’t because her NYC apartment is way too small). Find out more about Heather and her other books at wwww.heatherdemetrios.com and www.darkcaravancycle.com.


  1. She is so awesome! I just won a copy and can't wait to delve into it (over Christmas, because that seems like perfect timing for some Arabian Nights-style awesome)

  2. LOL! Thanks for 'plaining,Lucy'.

    I have this book on my wish list, but it would be totally cool to win a copy. Thanks for the opportunity, Misty!

  3. This book just seems too good. I really hope I win! :)


Tell me all your thoughts.
