Exquisite Captive Blogger Relay Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I have an awesome giveaway for you today- a hardcover copy of Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios (an awesome book!) with a signed bookplate to go along with it!

But first, the winner from yesterday's relay giveaway held by Misty of The Book Rat is: Teresa Whiteside!

Now, for my relay giveaway, all you have to do is just leave a comment (with your email address if it's not easily accessible by clicking on your blogger profile) on this post by midnight tonight telling me why you are excited to read Exquisite Captive! If you do not state why, you will not be entered. The giveaway is US only! The winner will be announced tomorrow over at Great Imaginations!

Below, find out more about Exquisite Captive!

Jinni. Empress. Warrior. Slave.

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.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna's revolution and Nalia's sworn enemy. He promises to release Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother—all for an unbearably high price.

Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at too terrible a cost. . .

In this gorgeous fantasy, Heather Demetrios brings to life a deliciously seductive world where a wish can be a curse and shadows are sometimes safer than the light.

  1. I can't wait to read Exquisite Captive because it's so unique. You always hear about the genies (Jinni?) being the manipulative ones in these situations, not the human. I think it'll be a very interesting story.
