Monday Give Away: the Reidiad

When I introduced Alex Reid, way back in Pink VI, The Betrayal of the Blood Lily, I initially had no idea that the Reid family would take over the Pink series.

Then Alex’s father popped up, around about Chapter Two of Blood Lily, and I knew, instantly, that there was the man for Miss Gwen.

And then, way at the end of the book, Jack Reid walked into the scene… and Jane’s future was sealed. (Although it was rather maddening not to be able to tell anyone, since Jane’s book was still many years in the future.)

So, for this Monday’s give away, I present the Reidiad, the three books in which the Reid family take over the stage: The Betrayal of the Blood Lily, The Passion of the Purple Plumeria, and the final Pink book, The Lure of the Moonflower.

Some day, perhaps, the Reidiad will stretch to five books, with one for Alex’s twin sister, Kat, and another for the irrepressible Lizzy. But, for now, it’s a collection of three.

The three Reids are very different sorts of heroes. Alex is hardworking and serious; Colonel Reid is a charming, carefree rogue (at least on the surface); and Jack is a cynical soldier of fortune. For a chance to win, here’s your question:

— Which of the three sounds most like your cup of tea?

I’ll be giving away four sets of the Reidiad this week. The winners will be announced on Thursday!

    Jack, the cynical soldier of fortune, although I liked them all.

  4. kathleen swift on October 12, 2015 at 10:46 am

    This is a difficult choice. I would choose Alex

  5. Susan Gorman on October 12, 2015 at 10:46 am

    Colonel Reid. πŸ™‚

  8. Sheila on October 12, 2015 at 10:58 am

    They are all great guys, but Alex is the one for me!

  9. Kari on October 12, 2015 at 11:04 am

    Ooh, I’m a Jack girl, for sure.

  10. Christine Holt on October 12, 2015 at 11:10 am

    I think…Alex!

  11. Betty S. on October 12, 2015 at 11:38 am

    It would have to be Alex. I loved him from his first appearance in Blood Lily and was really struck by his insight into the Indian people and culture.

  12. Chelsea Frandsen on October 12, 2015 at 12:00 pm

    Colonel Reid or Jack. I’m a sucker for a rogue or a cynic

  13. Shannon on October 12, 2015 at 12:28 pm

    Colonel Reid!

  14. Rebecca on October 12, 2015 at 12:44 pm

    Colonel Reid. πŸ™‚

  15. Courtney F. on October 12, 2015 at 12:47 pm

    Colonel Reid…or possibly Jack. πŸ™‚ It’s too hard to choose!

  16. Jennifer on October 12, 2015 at 12:50 pm

    Maybe Colonel Reid? I’d love the chance to read them all and find out!

  17. Anna on October 12, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    Alex!! But it’s a tough call. πŸ™‚

  18. Laura Hartness on October 12, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    Alex, but I’d hope that he’d mellow with age and maybe not be so serious??? But better that than being a rogue or a cynic, I guess!

  19. Amanda V on October 12, 2015 at 1:47 pm

    Colonel Reid..but then Jack.. no Alex! Okay so I can’t pick just one, they are all great heroes!

  20. Lauren H on October 12, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    It’s always been Alex. Him and Penelope are my favorites, you know, in a series with 12 favorites.

  21. LynnS on October 12, 2015 at 2:14 pm

    Awww. I’ve always had a soft spot for Alex.

  22. Pam on October 12, 2015 at 2:42 pm

    Jack. He travels more. His life is played out on more stages.

  23. Sarah Gentry on October 12, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    Betrayal of the Blood Lily was my favorite of the three. I love being made to love characters I previously disliked.

  24. bn100 on October 12, 2015 at 3:29 pm

    Jack

  25. Denise Davidson on October 12, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    Can’t I have all 3 over for tea at once and then keep Colonel Reid? Thanks for the great books — enjoy them so much!!

  26. Ellen on October 12, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    The Colonel. I’ve several of him in my family!

  27. Erin G on October 12, 2015 at 5:33 pm

    Alex!

  28. Joan on October 12, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    Alex followed closely by Jack. Betrayal Of The Blood Lily is one of my favorites of the entire series.

  29. kristi burch on October 12, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    Moonflower is my man.

  30. Monica on October 12, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    Probably Colonel Reid! =)

  31. Liz D. on October 12, 2015 at 6:29 pm

    Alex! Always like the serious guys who have more to discover about them πŸ™‚

  32. Rose on October 12, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    I loved Jack. He was perfect!

  33. Anna on October 12, 2015 at 8:56 pm

    I enjoy all your book great fun!!

  34. Steph on October 12, 2015 at 9:53 pm

    William πŸ™‚

  35. Dana on October 12, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    Alex with a dash of Colonel Reid! πŸ™‚

  36. Sarah G. on October 12, 2015 at 11:24 pm

    Alex! Jack’s a close second, though πŸ™‚

  37. Lena J on October 12, 2015 at 11:46 pm

    Colonel Reid, who else could capture Miss Meadows heart.

  38. Mary Ann Hale on October 13, 2015 at 2:25 am

    Alex Reid. Such a fan of the entire Pink series!

  39. Meredith A on October 13, 2015 at 12:29 pm

    Alex, but it was a tough choice!

  40. Courtney on October 13, 2015 at 3:28 pm

    Jack!

  41. Beth F on October 13, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    It’s so hard to choose between Alex and Jack! Ultimately I’d have to choose Alex, though.

  42. Whitney J on October 13, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    Definitely Jack…his cynicism would get along fabulously with my inherit optimism. He would be the ying to my yang.

  43. Khadija Shabbir on October 13, 2015 at 7:33 pm

    Jack was my favourite by far!

  44. Maria on October 13, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    I’d pick Alex but I like them all!

  45. Paige B. on October 14, 2015 at 2:02 am

    Colonel Reid!

  46. Tiffany on October 14, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    I think I would do eni-meenie-mynee-mo (sorry for the atrocious spelling) because I couldn’t possible choose…but I might cheat a little and choose Colonel Reid…

  47. Michelle Springer on October 14, 2015 at 1:39 pm

    Alex. I’m all about the dependable people. πŸ™‚

  48. Georgia on October 14, 2015 at 1:41 pm

    I enjoyed reading all three stories, but have a soft spot for Alex.

  49. Angie on October 14, 2015 at 4:02 pm

    I love all three of them, but I would definitely choose Jack. πŸ™‚

  50. Alexandra on October 14, 2015 at 5:13 pm

    It’s a photo finish, but I’d go for Alex.

  51. Jessica on October 14, 2015 at 6:25 pm

    As charming as I find the Colonel, I have to pick Alex.

  52. elizabeth e on October 15, 2015 at 1:08 pm

    I’d like to think that I’m more like Jane, but Alex is more my cup of tea over Jack. Although, I don’t think any of them would be a hardship!
