Holiday Contest– Preview?

I’ll admit it, I’m dying of curiosity. Based on the nature of the contest file, I won’t see the entries until I open the whole kit and caboodle and add up the votes on New Year’s Day.

So… just to slake my curiosity… who did you vote for as the lead in the Pink bonus chapter?

And for those who haven’t voted yet, you can find the Pink Holiday Contest over on the Contest page. Some popular character will be getting a whole, new, original bonus chapter!

    The Uppingtons. You have teased us more than once about their beginning and I am just dying to know what it is!!

  2. jeffrey on December 6, 2011 at 9:05 am

    I have a hunch it is Geoff and Letty because I consider these two the sexiest couple you have written about. Lauren, you have established an undercurrent of smoldering sensuality between these two that is just hard to resist. You have left us craving more!

  3. Liz on December 6, 2011 at 9:19 am

    Letty and Geoff! By far my favorite couple (and that’s saying something, because they’re all awesome).

  4. Tracie on December 6, 2011 at 9:45 am

    I voted for Jack Reid because I was so intrigued by his character in Blood Lily and was hoping to see more of him in another of your books. I’ve always been a sucker for a bad boy. 😉

  5. Chex on December 6, 2011 at 10:09 am

    Jack Reid(another “bad boy”), Geoff and Letty(favorite couple by far), or the Frumley Twins. I really liked them in “Black Tulip” and I miss them! It would be cool to do what Richard said and have twin spies.

  6. Alexandra M on December 6, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I voted for Miss Gwen because I would love to know how she got to be the way she is. I feel like there’s a lot to be told about our favorite parasol wielding spy.

  7. MelissaW on December 6, 2011 at 11:15 am

    Geoff and Letty – they’re my faves! (and about to have a little spy!)

  8. Emily on December 6, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    I am dying to hear more about Tommy Fluellen. I was crushed to hear that Ms. Gwen had taken his book slot.

  9. Jane on December 6, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Oh, good, a chance to mention several possible characters! I voted for Penelope, because I want to see what that formidable woman does next. Life in foreign lands often gave a British woman a chance to do much more than she could’ve at home. I think she’s going to be one of the memsahbs of power.

    I gather that Jane figures largely in the next book, so I’ll also suggest Miss Gwen. Second (or third, or whatever) the motion to hear more about the Uppingtons.

    Whatever character wins, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.

  10. Diana on December 6, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    Geoff and Letty, although I would love to see them at a family event with Lord & Lady Vaughn.

  11. Rachel Adrianna on December 6, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    definately the uppingtons! 🙂

  12. anya on December 6, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    I voted for the Duke and Duchess of Dovdale, because I really enjoy Charlotte’s optimism. If I could pick secondary characters, it would definitely be the Uppingtons.

  13. Alice on December 6, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Mary and Vaughn! I love to see the softer side of Vaughn.

  14. Sheila on December 6, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    The Vaughns, altho all the above are intriguing….maybe someday we’ll have them all back in an omnibus reunion/wrapup, buy I hope there will be lots more stories before then.

  15. Sara on December 6, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    Geoff and Letty! With a side of Tommy Fluellen somehow 🙂

  16. Céline on December 6, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    Why, Sally Fitzhugh, of course! 😀
    It was hard, choosing between Sally and Geoff and Letty… Can I vote a second and a third and a fourth time?

  17. Jessica S. on December 6, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Dowager Duchess of Dovedale, naturally. I have no desire to be poked with that cane. And I’m not pretty or popular enough to be unaffected by her cutting remarks.

    But I’ll be happy with any of these!

  18. Elizabeth (aka Miss Eliza) on December 6, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    Lizzy Reid! (And cohorts)

  19. Jessica Mac on December 6, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    Miles and Hen!! It would be nice to see Richard and Miles make up. I think would be fun to see the four of them in action together!

  20. Stephanie LP on December 6, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    I voted for Miles, but especially with Hen. I think Miles is adorable, and even more so when he is all love-struck!

  21. Julie on December 6, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    I voted for Mary and Vaughn. I had just finished their book when I voted. I keep going back and forth between loving and loathing those two! Would love to see another tale from their pov.

  22. Leslie on December 6, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    I voted for Jane and Gwen. A little holiday conspiracy for the two of them would be fun.

  23. Emily on December 6, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    I voted for the Uppingtons! Would love to see how they met 🙂

  24. lizzy on December 6, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    charlotte and robert!

  25. Céline on December 6, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    And what about you, Lauren? If you had to vote, which character would you like to write most about? Surely, you have a favourite! And which character did you enjoy writing about the most?

  26. Ashley on December 6, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    I voted for Henrietta but reading everyone’s posts, the Uppingtons sound fantastic too!

  27. Loramri on December 6, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Pleased to see lots of people voted for Geoff and Letty, because that’s my pick! I just love both of them. I don’t really know why – they just seem so down-to-earth and real. Maybe if they win you could incorporate some bonus Miles & Hen appearances, since they’re all good friends.

  28. Nicole N on December 6, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    I voted for Miss Jane Wooliston!

  29. Megan on December 6, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    So many good suggestions above!! I will love any of them… but my vote went to Geoff and Letty! 🙂

  30. Jessica C on December 6, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    I voted for the Pink Carnation herself. I’d love to see what Jane is up to, and perhaps even a hint at who her hero might be…

  31. Stephanie Ball on December 7, 2011 at 1:32 am

    letty and geoff

  32. Jennifer on December 7, 2011 at 9:44 am

    I voted for Charlotte and Robert but had difficulty choosing since there are so many great possibilities!

  33. Nancy on December 7, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Jack Reid OF COURSE

  34. Elise on December 7, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    Jack Reid. Definitely Jack Reid.

  35. Pat on December 7, 2011 at 11:40 pm

    Vaughn. I love to see how the epitome of control and cool reacts in private when things aren’t going his way.

  36. Laura M on December 15, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    Jane!!!! but all of the above sound amazing!!! But I would love to find out more about Jane and as Jessica C mentioned I would love a hint at who her hero might be.:-) I am really looking forward to Miss Gwens book but I have to ask will Tommy Fluellen get his book as well? I do hope so….I just can´t help it you keep coming up with these amazing charachters that we all just fall in love with and want to know more about, and off course Jack Reid just sounds aaamazing….you know what I can just keep going and going:-)
