Take Home Tuesday Hosted by Gena Showalter & Kresley Cole!

UPDATE: The winner of an autographed copy of DEEP KISS OF WINTER by Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter is Amy305! Congrats!!!! Thanks to everyone who participated :)! Hope to see you again next Tuesday! Amy305, please email you physical addy to contests @ knightagency.net.
The Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears of the romance world, Gena Showalter and Kresley Cole (we're measuring in fame, not *clears throat* infamy), are here to present a very special Take Home Tuesday! Today is release day for their joint effort, DEEP KISS OF WINTER, a hot paranormal anthology featuring two never-before published stories by each of the New York Times bestselling authors.
To celebrate the release day, the two BFFs agreed to engage in a little fun, and took a quiz to see which one of them knows the other best. The winner will be proclaimed the Very Best Best Friend Forever (VBBFF) and crowned with a tiara composed of hundreds of sparkling, conflict-free diamonds... Um, okay. Maybe not. But she does get the title, and it's the honor that counts right? Before we get to the quiz, check out the cover blurb on DEEP KISS OF WINTER below.
As per our usual Take Home Tuesday rules, the winner of a signed copy of DEEP KISS OF WINTER (autographed by both authors) will be chosen randomly from the comments section. Look for an update in this post tomorrow morning to find out if you are the winner!

The 411 on DKOW: KRESLEY COLE delivers a breathtaking tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time...and a Valkyrie aching to be touched.Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela the Ice Maiden -- the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and her freezing skin can't be touched by anyone but her own kind without inflicting pain beyond measure. Soon desperate for closeness, in an agony of frustration, Murdoch and Danii will do anything to have each other. Together, can they find the key that will finally allow them to slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?

GENA SHOWALTER puts a daring spin on a tale of huntress and hunted...and concocts a sensual chemistry that is positively explosive.Aleaha Love can be anyone -- literally. With only skin-to-skin contact, she can change her appearance, assume any identity. Her newest identity switch has made her an AIR (alien investigation and removal) agent and sends her on a mission to capture a group of otherworldly warriors. Only she becomes the captured. Breean, a golden-skinned commander known for his iron will who is at once dangerous and soul-shatteringly seductive, threatens her new life. Because for the first time, Aleaha only wants to be herself....

1. What was the last book your BFF read?

Gena on Kresley: The entire collection of novels by Gena Showalter.
Kresley on Gena: Deep Kiss of Winter. [cough] Cause that’s what everyone should be reading right now. [cough]

2. How would your BFF complete this sentence: "A perfect BFF is one who..."

Gena on Kresley: is just like Gena Showalter
Kresley on Gena: is Kresley-esque in every way.

3. If your BFF died and was reincarnated as a marine animal, what would she be? A dolphin, Great White shark, walrus, crab or clown fish?

Gena on Kresley: Great white shark, just like me – we will rule the ocean together.
Kresley on Gena: A dolphin--because she’s crazy smart.

4. When the deejay plays this song, your BFF can’t help but show off her daring moves. What is her favorite dance song?

Gena on Kresley: She doesn’t dance no matter what you promise – believe me, I’ve tried!
Kresley on Gena: No music necessary for her to do the Elaine dance.

5. If your BFF could have married a movie star, who would it have been?

Gena on Kresley: Daniel Craig
Kresley on Gena: Will Ferrell

6. What color does your BFF think she looks best in?

Gena on Kresley: Black
Kresley on Gena: Green

7. What is your BFF’s favorite literary character of all time?

Gena on Kresley: Mr. Darcy
Kresley on Gena: Ron Burgundy (a movie script is literary, right?)

8. Which one of the following reality television shows does your BFF secretly dream of competing on? American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, Project Runway, The Apprentice, Top Chef or Last Comic Standing?

Gena on Kresley: The Apprentice – and she would kick ass!
Kresley on Gena: Maybe So You Think You Can Dance because she was a gymnast?

9. What is your BFF’s middle name?

Gena on Kresley: Perfection
Kresley on Gena: Gena--“does my ass look great in these jeans, or what?”-- Showalter

10. You and your BFF are getting ready for an event, and she says that she’ll be ready in a minute. What does that really mean? A.) Ready in 60 seconds (Of course!) B.) An hour (just enough time for you to settle in for a nap) C.) 2 hours or more (by this time both you and your BFF are changing clothes for the 5th time) D.) Not that bad…it just means 5 more minutes

Gena on Kresley: C - for sure!
Kresley on Gena: A. Big time.

The Answers:
1. Kresley= Deep Kiss of Winter. Gena’s story “Tempt Me Eternally”—DOES.
Gena = Untouchable by Kresley Cole. It was AMAZING!

2. Kresley= looks, talks, acts, dances, cracks jokes, and does a British accent like Gena Showalter
Gena= is just like Kresley Cole

3. Kresley= A dolphin, so I could pod with Gena.
Gena= Great White Shark, like her – we will rule the ocean together.

4. Kresley= No dancing. Ever. If you see me dancing, know that I’ve been roofied.
Gena= Anything that allows me to do my famous Elaine Benes dance.

5. Kresley= Daniel Craig or Clive Owen.
Gena= Robert Pattinson. Or Josh Harnett. Or Ryan Reynolds. Or Owen Wilson. Or Luke Wilson. Or Will Ferrell. Or Ryan Gosling. Or Vince Vaughn.

6. Kresley= Black
Gena= Green

7. Kresley= Any major character Jane Austen wrote.
Gena= Lachlan from A Hunger Like No Other

8. Kresley= American Idol, even though I can’t sing.
Gena= So You Think You Can Dance – and I would rock the house!

9. Kresley= Kresley--“vodka juice and cranberry, pleash--Cole
Gena= Trouble

10. Kresley= C. I lose track of time!
Gena= A (60 seconds or less!)

AND THE WINNER IS....
Well, it seem we have a tie for 6 correct answers each! Though Gena at first proposed a dance-off, both ladies have magnanimously agreed to share the crown. ;-)

I was laughing so hard. What a creative way to show that besties should do anthologies more often for all of us who just can't make up their minds who to read first.
