Put your answers in the comments and we'll enter you into a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card. Answer as many questions as you can to earn more chances (and don't forget to leave us your email address).

Let's get started!

HEIDI RICE
Avril Tremayne is a mad Heidi Rice fan, so was thrilled to feature her on Get Lost in a Story during the year.

USA Today bestselling author Heidi Rice’s first love was watching movies so, not surprisingly, her first proper job was as a film journalist. But after spending years sneaking off to read romantic fiction when she was being paid to watch some crappy B-movie or other, she decided to try writing a novel of her own. 

Her first book was published by Harlequin Mills & Boon in 2007. Since then she’s published a total of 24 novels, novellas and short stories, nabbed three RITA nominations, sold over two millions copies of her books worldwide and never has to watch crappy B-movies now unless she wants to. 

She lives in London with her husband and two sons, and lots of other gorgeous men who are entirely in her imagination (unlike the laundry, unfortunately). Connect with Heidi via her website.

What was the name of Heidi's modern Rapunzel-esque romance, which was a 2016 RITA finalist?

NANA PRAH
Lara Lacombe has been blogging friends with Nana for a few years, and she was excited to celebrate Nana's debut novel with Harlequin Kimani earlier this month!


Nana Prah first discovered romance in a book from her eight grade summer reading list and has been obsessed with it ever since. Her fascination with love inspired her to write in her favorite genre where happily-ever-after is the rule.

She is a published author of contemporary, multicultural romances. Her books are sweet with a touch of spice. When she’s not writing she’s, over-indulging in chocolate, enjoying life with friends and family, and tormenting nursing students into being the best nurses the world has ever seen.  Check out Nana's blog!

Nana's latest book is called A Perfect Caress.  What is the hero Dante obsessed with?

JENNIFER BERNARD
Lizbeth Selvig has interview USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard three times on GLIAS. Jennifer is an incredibly popular author of contemporary romance--famous for her firefighter heroes and baseball hotties. 

Jennifer is a Harvard grad and former news promo producer who left big city life in L.A. for true love in Alaska where she now lives with her husband and stepdaughters.

Since her first interview on Get Lost in a Story, Jennifer has written multiple series including the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel novels, the Love Between the Bases series, several novellas, and her brand new series Jupiter Point--about a crew of ultra hot Hotshot Firefighters!

Check out Jennifer's website and blog for all the details! Let's go back to Jennifer's second interview and find out...

In Jennifer Bernard's Love Between the Bases series, which star a whole lot of very sexy baseball players, what is the name of the minor league team featured in the books?

PINTIP DUNN
Nan Dixon has interviewed Pintip Dunn twice since her first book was released. Her fabulous debut FORGET TOMORROW won the Best First Book RITA in 2016 and also made the New York Times Bestseller list. This is a Young Adult you shouldn't miss. The series is incredible. 

So--my question is...

In FORGET TOMORROW, why is Callie arrested and placed in Limbo when she receives her future memory?

DARCY WOODS
Nan also interviewed her friend Darcy Woods about her fabulous YA debut SUMMER OF SUPERNOVAS. As always, when talking to Darcy, craziness ensues. We did learn about her main character-Wilamena. (And Darcy also tempted us with some incredible looking cupcakes.

In THE SUMMER OF SUPERNOVAS, what is Wilamena obsessed about and what does she base her search for a relationship on?

A former professional actress, with Broadway, film and T.V. credits, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Join Zelda in her crazy Magic and Mayhem world: Magic & Mayhem World.  Robyn is such a fun person to know!
