Update for The Doll Giveaway

Y'all only have 4 days remaining to enter the giveaway for The Doll - A Vanessa Michael Munroe Novel by Taylor StevensThe Doll is being released in paperback by Broadway Books on March 4th and the good people at Crown Publishing have generously provided two copies for me to give away. I gave this genre-bending convention-blowing luge ride a 4.5 of 5 rating last year when I reviewed the hardcover; you can read that review here. A brief excerpt:
And they're off! The Doll bursts out of the starting gate like Secretariat at Aqueduct. This is no exaggeration: page one and our heroine is darted like a bear and kidnapped by homicidal Croatians masquerading as paramedics in an ambulance stolen from the city of Dallas. Miles Bradford, lover, PTSD-sufferer, spy extraordinaire and Boy Robin, witnesses the scene from his office window.
This sets off a vicious romp across countries, oceans and continents but not in search of Michael, oh no, Michael can more than handle herself. Turns out she's been "hired" by The Doll Maker, a bat-shit crazy, child-sex-slave trafficking, scum of the earth, who only passes as human because he has opposable thumbs. Michael is being coerced into delivering a particularly valuable "package" (read: kidnapped woman) to a client, as penance for what The Doll Maker sees as her past transgressions against his organization and revenue stream. The Doll Maker's minions have kidnapped Logan, the person Michael is closest to in all the world, in order to ensure her cooperation. But watch what happens when she turns the tables.
