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!
Alex. But I liked all of them!
Alex, but I enjoy them all. Thank you for the giveaway and for such great reading
Jack, the cynical soldier of fortune, although I liked them all.
This is a difficult choice. I would choose Alex
I would choose Alex. Thanks for the giveaway!
Colonel Reid. 🙂
They are all great guys, but Alex is the one for me!
Ooh, I’m a Jack girl, for sure.
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.
Colonel Reid or Jack. I’m a sucker for a rogue or a cynic
Colonel Reid. 🙂
Colonel Reid…or possibly Jack. 🙂 It’s too hard to choose!
Maybe Colonel Reid? I’d love the chance to read them all and find out!
Alex!! But it’s a tough call. 🙂
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!
Colonel Reid..but then Jack.. no Alex! Okay so I can’t pick just one, they are all great heroes!
It’s always been Alex. Him and Penelope are my favorites, you know, in a series with 12 favorites.
Awww. I’ve always had a soft spot for Alex.
Jack. He travels more. His life is played out on more stages.
Betrayal of the Blood Lily was my favorite of the three. I love being made to love characters I previously disliked.
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!!
The Colonel. I’ve several of him in my family!
Alex followed closely by Jack. Betrayal Of The Blood Lily is one of my favorites of the entire series.
Moonflower is my man.
Probably Colonel Reid! =)
Alex! Always like the serious guys who have more to discover about them 🙂
I loved Jack. He was perfect!
I enjoy all your book great fun!!
Alex with a dash of Colonel Reid! 🙂
Alex! Jack’s a close second, though 🙂
Colonel Reid, who else could capture Miss Meadows heart.
Alex Reid. Such a fan of the entire Pink series!
Alex, but it was a tough choice!
It’s so hard to choose between Alex and Jack! Ultimately I’d have to choose Alex, though.
Definitely Jack…his cynicism would get along fabulously with my inherit optimism. He would be the ying to my yang.
Jack was my favourite by far!
I’d pick Alex but I like them all!
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…
Alex. I’m all about the dependable people. 🙂
I enjoyed reading all three stories, but have a soft spot for Alex.
I love all three of them, but I would definitely choose Jack. 🙂
It’s a photo finish, but I’d go for Alex.
As charming as I find the Colonel, I have to pick Alex.
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!
