This week I'm giving away the ARC for a sequel to a book I loved.

GUARDIAN OF THE GATE (Prophecy of the Sisters Book 2) by Michelle Zink

From Amazon:

The ultimate battle between sisters is nearing, and its outcome could have catastrophic consequences. As sixteen year-old Lia Milthorpe searches for a way to end the prophecy, her twin sister Alice hones the skills she'll need to defeat Lia. Alice will stop at nothing to reclaim her sister's role in the prophecy, and that's not the only thing she wants: There's also Lia's boyfriend James.

Lia and Alice always knew the Prophecy would turn those closest to them against them. But they didn't know what betrayal could lead them to do. In the end, only one sister will be left standing.

For your chance to win this awesome ARC, all you need to do is:

1) Follow this blog
2) Follow The Texas Sweethearts blog
3) Comment on this blog post

For extra entries:

1) Blog about this contest and leave a comment telling me
2) Tweet about this contest and leave a comment telling me

And make sure you leave me a way to get in contact with you when you win!

The contest will run through midnight on Friday July 23, 2010!

And don't forget:

Enter to win an ARC of TORMENT by Lauren Kate and

Enter to win ARCs of THE DUFF by Kody Keplinger and LIVVIE OWEN LIVED HERE by Sarah Dooley.
