Enter Delilah's Summertime Contest!
Friday, June 19th, 2009

This contest is closed! Thanks for playing!

Follow this link to the contest rules:


1. The contest runs through July 6th. The three top prizes will be announced on July 8th, 2009. To enter, you must do two things!

2. First, copy the code (click on ’SHARE’) of the graphic above and post it to your blog, Facebook, Myspace, Website, or wherever you want to share it. Add a link to my blog from your blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever you put the graphic, and say “Click here to enter DELILAH DEVLIN’S SUMMERTIME CONTEST“. You may use a smaller version of the graphic, if you prefer, for one of your sidebars. Just change the height and width in the code to “180″ by “150″.

3. Come back to this post and post a link to your blog entry or wherever you’ve posted the graphic, and your answer to the following question: If the worlds you enter when you read a romance could come true, would you take a walk on the wild side with a vampire, a werewolf or a sexy cowboy? Tell me why.

If you don’t have a blog, or if you are having difficulty posting, you can still enter the contest. Here’s what you can do:

~ Blog about the SUMMERTIME CONTEST on your Facebook, MySpace page or post about it in a yahoo group. Just leave a comment about where you posted it and provide a link.

~ No Facebook, MySpace or group? Then get creative. Share the contest with two friends, and leave a comment about who you told. Tell your book club about the book and the contest. This will have to be on the honor system.

The whole point of the contest is to get the word out about my two upcoming releases, DARKNESS BURNING and TEMPTED BY A COWBOY, so if you can convince me in some way that you did that, you’re in!

4. Don’t forget, no matter how you spread the word, be sure to leave a comment with links and information, and answer the “who would you take a walk on the wild side with” question. If you have not entered correctly, you will not be in the final drawing, so please follow the instructions.

5. The three top prizes will be given away on July 8th. Everyone who enters the contest correctly will be in the running for those prizes as well as many other prizes that will be announced on my blog as I run through the countdown. Authors are eligible to win as well!


It’s very important that you return each day to see if you have won, because if I haven’t heard from you within forty-eight hours of your name being announced, a new winner will be drawn! 😥

Enjoy the contest, and thanks for helping me get the word out about my two releases:
DARKNESS BURNING, my JULY release from Avon RED coming June 23d
TEMPTED BY A COWBOY, my JULY release coming from Kensington Aphrodisia on June 30th

    posted a link to the blog website. Suspect I would walk in a world with a vampire since I find the biting during intimacy incredibly sexy. Not to mention the link between sustenance (from human to vampire) and romance/love (from vampire to human) lovely.

    I posted on my blog, facebook and myspace.

    I have no idea what I’m supposed to post for facebook.

    Can I take multiple trip and take a walk in the wild side with all of them. It doesn’t have to be at the same time. I’d be happy to do a bit of traveling. 😉

    All of them would be a great adventure I think. Though I think my biggest draw is between vampire and cowboy. Hell I’m so white I might fit the nighttime life of the vampire better. Out and about with a cowboy and I’d be burnt to a crisp in seconds. 🙄

    Great contest Delilah!
    I posted here….

    As for the question, I’m gonna have to go with the sexy cowboys. Vamps are out because I faint at the sight of blood, and as a dog owner, getting busy with a werewolf would be way too weird. So, cowboys it is…Giddy-Up, LOL.
    Now I just need to learn how to ride a horse 😉

    Yeah, Great Contest!!! I posted on my blog

    To answer the question I would go with sexy cowboys, my first crush in 4th grade was a little cowboy who grew up into a big sexy cowboy, guess some things stick with you forever…… plus their backside looks great in jeans!

    Hey Delilah,
    I posted to my blog in the sidebar at Seductive Musings

    And to answer your question, definitely the sexy cowboy. There’s just something about a man in chaps and a cowboy hat…did I mention that he wouldn’t be wearing anything else 😉

    Congrats on the new releases, and glad to help spread the word!

    Hey Delilah what a great summer contest I’m so excited. I can’t wait to share this with our book club too. I’m emailing them as soon as I finish this post.

    I posted on my blog about it at:

    If I had to choose between a Vamp, werewolf and sexy cowboy I’m not sure which I would choose – they each have something to offer.

    Vamps are super sexy and very hot but they can’t go out in the daylight, eat, and the whole blood thing is yucky!!

    Werewolves are hot and strong and all alpha but they have the whole getting hairy thing going on.

    I guess I would take a good old fashioned sexy cowboy in the end.

    Can I walk on the wild side with all of them? Who’s better looking, the vampire or the werewolf? If I had to choose one it would be a vampire. I’ve had a strange attraction to them for as long as I can remember. Plus I’m a night owl so I don’t need the sun.

    I hope I did the facebook thing right. I’m not the best at this. Here is the link:

    As to the question, could I have a vampire cowboy. I’d love to live through a few centuries plus I love the old west. This would be the best of both worlds for me. Have a great day.

    Hi Delilah! I just put it up on
    I’m gonna figure how to put it up on Facebook too! That way it stays on the front page rather than moving like it does with the blog posts!

    Oh I’d love to take a walk on the wild side with a cowboy or two :mrgreen: I’d love being between them on the ranch, or riding a horse LOL with those tight worn out jeans, and boots!

    Congratulations on your upcoming releases! These books both sound awesome and I cannot wait to read them. In the mean time I blogged about your contest here:

    And to answer your question I’d like to spend my time with a cowbay that is a hybrid of both vampire and werewolf natures. Will you take that answer? No? Ah well, can’t blame a gal for trying. Okay, if I had to pick just one, I’d pick the vampire then.

    And added you as a friend so you can check it out.

    Now this is a really tough question Vampire or Werewolf….hmmm…I know how about both the brooding, dark, tortured, lonley vampire who is in serious need of some lovin’ and the hot, animalistic, alpha werewolf out looking for that special someone to make some cubs with…I also have a weakness for Catmen…love those cat shifters, MEOW!!!

    First, all done posting in two places. . .

    first my site’s blog at and just click on the Blog/What’s New link. . .

    and the other place is my LiveJournal blog, which is basically a copy of what’s on the other, at link . . .

    and hmm, Vampire, werewolves or cowboys. . . well, definitely not a werewolf because of the shifting stuff, prefer a human at all times. . . so that leaves vamps and cowboys. . . I think in the end, I’d go with the cowboy, we can go out during the day and all. 😉

    Okay, I’m a doofus. I forgot to answer the question. After much deliberation, I’d pick a sexy cowboy. You can only walk with your vamp at night which is a bummer and a werewolf would have one or two nights a month where they probably wouldn’t be safe to be out with. So for those reasons, a cowboy’s my best bet.

    It would have to be a vamp. I would love to be immortal especially with my mate by my side. or to find my mate in a shapeshifter would be cool. too.

    I would love to take a walk on the wild side with a dark, mysterious vampire. I think it’s something very sexy about an immortal and their fierce protectiveness towards their mate. I even find the neck biting thing thrilling. Last but not least, I could have the days to myself. What more could you ask for?

    I posted the widget on my sidebar here at Poisoned Rationality

    If the worlds you enter when you read a romance could come true, would you take a walk on the wild side with a vampire, a werewolf or a sexy cowboy?
    I’d have to say a sexy cowboy–don’t get me wrong I love me a good vampire or werewolf romance, but in reality? Hoo boy the problems! For one I am so anti-blood its not even funny–forget worrying about being immortal, the thought of a guy sucking on my neck (no matter how pleasurable) for my blood makes me ill. For another I’m allergic to practically every kind of hair, fur or pelt you can think of so unless the wereanimal of my dreams is also hypo-allergenic, let’s forget about getting too close to each other!

    A cowboy though? Well now they’re like as charming as can be (in romances at least) and have that sweet twang and look awfully good shirtless.
