From Pop Culture Curmudgeon’s blog

You’ll be able to win a copy of Moira Rogers’ book Cry Sanctuary, the first in the Red Rock Pass series. The next installment is coming out on June 9, so this is a great chance to get into a new paranormal romance series.

Moira Rogers describes the Red Rock Pass series as “a dark world where wizards and werewolves fight for supremacy and only a few of the alphas in the United States hold true to the traditions of protecting their packs.” Read more about it here, then make sure you come back Friday to enter the contest.

The contest will run from 12:01 am Friday May 22 through 6:00 pm Sunday May 24 (all times Pacific). The winner will be announced here Monday. The prize will be one ebook, available in multiple formats. The prize is non-transferable and may not be substituted.
