A Contest - Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews (Kate Douglas Series Book 4)

I absolutely love this series and in celebration of the release of Magic Bleeds, Book 4 in the Kate Douglas series- I'm throwing a contest. 

Here is the Blurb for this book:

Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it rose.

Kate Daniels works for the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, officially as a liaison with the mercenary guild. Unofficially, she cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to handle—especially if they involve Atlanta’s shapeshifting community.

When she’s called in to investigate a fight at the Steel Horse, a bar midway between the territories of the shapeshifters and the necromancers, Kate quickly discovers there’s a new player in town. One who’s been around for thousands of years—and rode to war at the side of Kate’s father.

This foe may be too much even for Kate and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, to handle. Because this time, Kate will be taking on family…

Contest and Contest Rules:
I will admit that I am avoiding certain genres of books, for instance, I don't really like to read non-fiction books at this time.  Part of the reason is that I finished my Master's Degree towards the end of 2009 and after years of having to read non-fiction for school- I'm burned out.  Other genres either scare me or I'm just dragging my feet on.
 So the contest question is this:  Is there a genre of book that you are avoiding like the black plague?  If so what is it and why are you avoiding it?
1.  You must be a follower of this blog
2.  You must leave your email address so that I can contact you to notify you and get details for shipment. 
3.  Due to shipment issues, the contest is open only to U.S. and Canada residents. 
4.  Contest will close at 6 PM on Friday , 28-May-10.  Winner to be announced by Noon on the following day. 
Two winners will receive a print copy of Magic Bleeds plus a choice of one of the following candy bars:
Ghirardelli Intense Dark Toffee Interlude
Ghirardelli Dark & Caramel
Ghirardelli Dark & Raspberry
Ghirardelli Luxe Milk
Winners: If you have not been reading this series, you can instead choose to get the first book in the series "Magic Bites".  This is one series that I strongly recommend reading in order (which can be found on the author's website). 
Good Luck Everyone!
