It's a Celebration! Wanna snag an early read of Claim Me and and Amazon, B&N or iTunes card?

Win an early copy of Claim Me by J. KennerSince I’m giddy that Release Me has been two months on the USA Today bestseller list, I thought a new, fun “progressive” contest was in order!

We’ve got three potential winners.  Check it out:

So what’s the prize? An early read of Claim Me (the winner will need to sign up for a NetGalley account), a signed copy of the book once it’s available,  and a $50 gift card from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or iTunes!

But there’s more!!!

If Release Me hits the USA Today list again next week (i.e., the March 7 list) that’s more reason to celebrate, and  another winner will receive early read of Claim Me (the winner will need to sign up for a NetGalley account), a signed copy of the book once it’s available,  and a $100 gift card from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or iTunes!


If Facebook likes for the J. Kenner page hit 5,000 by the time the Rafflecopter expires on March 9 that’s also reason to celebrate! Another winner will receive an early read of Claim Me, a signed copy of the book once it’s available,  and either a $100 or $150 gift certificate (depending on whether the book also hit that March 7 USA Today list)! Good luck!

(That’s about 1500 new likes, but spread the word and maybe we’ll get there!)

Have you read Release Me? I have, and loved it!!
Do you read erotic romance? I not only read it, but I write it, as well! 🙂
What’s your favorite? I like reading about strong women who fall for strong men. I don’t like women who are wimps! And I prefer stories with a satisfying HEA!!

Thanks for the giveaway! Congrats!!!


I have read Release Me and I really enjoyed it! I read books from all genres, but mostly those that prominently feature women. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next in Claim Me.

I loved your earlier contemporary stuff. I have a well thumbed copy of First Love. 🙂

Nicole Laverdure

OMG I would love to win the 50$ gift certificate from Amazon. I could buy Claim Me and pre-order Complete Me! Merci beaucoup Julie for the nice giveaway. I read so many nice comments and great reviews about Release Me. I love erotic romances. I hope your J. Kenner page hit 5,000 likes on Facebook! Wish luck!


I am so excited for the next book! I have recommended the series to all my reading pals!


I haven’t read Release Me, but it’s on my wish list. Congrats on all the success with it, Julie!

Crystal White Smith

Sigh….haven’t read yet cuz I am OCD when it comes to series books and have to have them all or close release dates to read them…getting antsy though, might not be able to wait!

Ann S.

I love this series and I do enjoy erotic romances. These just happen to be my favorites.

Ann M.

Can not wait to read the next book. So glad that Release Me is doing so well.

Joanna YoucancallmeNoona (Young)

Thank you for the amazing giveaway! So excited about Claim Me’s release! I totally love Damien Stark!!

Michelle Harlan

I loved Release Me and can’t wait to read Claim Me! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll win an early copy, but if I don’t, I’ve got the release date marked on my book calendar!

Kelsey Summer

I read Release Me the day it came out. I can’t wait for Claim Me.


Tina M

Can not Wait for this new book of yours. Read Release Me now I need Claim Me..Great Giveaway too..Thanks!!

Karielle Stephanie

Congrats on the new releases! I’ll be counting the days (:

I’m so intrigued by the series and oF COURSE I LOVE EROTIC ROMANCE ok sorry for losing it there—you can tell I really really love it. But you know, it has to be good. Tasteful. A favorite author of mine in the genre would be Maya Banks. She’s hilarious and knows how to write damn good sex scenes.

Fav movie: I’m crazy for anything with Audrey Hepburn in it, I’ve a bit of a girl crush on her (but she’s waayyy out of my league).

And a random tidbit about me: I love tofu and hate donuts, I’m just really odd in that way. I hope this comment is ridiculous enough for you honestly I don’t know why I said half the stuff.

Love to you and your books!

Hi! I have not read Release Me. I have read your Protectors series and LOVE it! I’ll be sharing this contest on my personal Facebook page and my blog’s Facebook page, One More Chapter. Thank you for the chances to win AWESOME prizes!

Sarah Delgado Lieurance

I bought Release Me when you were in Round Rock, TX but have not read it. I’m waiting for the next 2 books to be released so I can read them back to back. 😀 Thanks for the opportunity to win some really cool prizes.

Mary Jo Toth

Excited for Claim Me to come out … Release Me is on my bookshelf waiting for Claim Me to arrive – I didn’t want to risk any cliff hangers! Thanks for having a giveaway to celebrate!

Bookworm Brandee

I read, reviewed and LOVED Release Me! I’m so excited that we’ll have Claim Me and Complete Me earlier than planned…I’m not a patient person! 😉 But I will be (im)patiently waiting to see where Damien & Nicki end up…

Janice Hougland

This series certainly intrigues me. I have enjoyed your other romances under Julie Kenner name. What is the purpose of having three names under which you publish books? Just curious . . .


Hey Janice!

I’m actually going to “retire” J.K. Beck and write future shadow keepers books as “Julie Kenner, writing as J.K. Beck” and then slowly ease off that name altogether.

The J. Kenner/Julie Kenner distinction was a maybe/maybe not thing, but since I intend to bring back my teen vampire books and the demon hunting soccer mom books are “fade to black” with the romance/sex, I wanted to have a line of demarcation b/w the stories for readers. Release Me is definitely 18+ and NC-17!

Natalie Cleary

Yes Ive read Release Me and cant wait for book 2 🙂 Thanks so much for the chance.

Chris Noe

I have not but am hitting B&N later on today so maybe I will pick it up.

Elizabeth M

Congratulations on ALL of your success!! I’ve been reading you from WAAAAY back;-) I’m SO excited for your next release, and I wish you all good things in the future!

Alexandrea Ward

I haven’t read Release Me yet but I am looking forward to it. I do love reading erotic romance novels. My absolute favorite series is by L.A. Banks called the Vampire Huntress Legends series (VHL series). I can re-read that series over and over again.

Laurie Emerson

I read and re-read Release Me. I fell in love with it and had to read it all over again! I love romance books as they let me dream, cry and sigh!

I haven’t read Release Me. Yes, I do enjoy erotic romances…favorite movie? Depends on my mood…I am enjoying Moonlight in Paris right now. Yesterday my favorite was Almost Famous. 🙂 I just love movies.


Somehow I stumbled upon information about you and your new series, The Stark Trilogy and I can’t wait to read “Release Me” and all the others!!! I love erotic romances so please keep writing them.

Sandy Lion

I am a huge fan and I really love the Stark trilogy, Shadowkeepers, and Demon Hunting Soccer mom series. Thank you for the giveaway and I have recommended your series to my Literal Addiction book group because I just think they are unique and well written. sdylion(at)gmail(dot)com
