#Win The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize by Maisey Yates (US)

MAISEY YATES is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband—whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.


In 2009, at the age of 23 Yates sold her first book. Since then it's been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever-afters, and she wouldn't have it any other way. She divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere and light, sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

How-to Tips for Aspiring Writers:

I think one of the most important pieces of advice that I could offer to someone looking to get started in publishing is: don't self reject.

It sounds silly, but it's something that I see happening routinely. Someone will go to all the work to write a manuscript, and then won't send it in. They get themselves stuck in endless rounds of self-inflicted edits, or come up with a host of reasons why they can't send out a query letter yet. Why they can't respond to a request for the submission, why they can't complete the revise and resubmit letter that they got.

Oftentimes, this behavior comes from a fear of rejection. As long as you hold on to the book, as long as you don't seek that final answer from the publisher or the agent, you don't have to know if the book is good enough to be published or not. But this is nothing more than self rejection, and it’s a bad habit to get into.

The last thing you want is to become the biggest barrier to your own success. If someone requests the manuscript, send it in. If it's finished, get that query letter together and send it out. If you get a revise and resubmit? Revise it and resubmit.

“I want that painting. It is my last Lost Mistress. My Lost Love.”

While traveling together to Isola D'Oro to locate the mysterious painting, Gabby is drawn to the man tortured by guilt from his past. Her innocence makes her untouchable, as Alex is convinced his Di Sione blood is tainted. But could their passion be his salvation?

  1. We are our own worst enemies, aren't we? I think it gets easier over time, but you have to go through a long period of trying to shut those doubting voices out!

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
