The Seducing Cinderella Epic Trailer Reveal & The Parker/Reid World Domination Contest!!!

Raise your hand if you like hunky, hot romance heroes!

Do we have everyone’s attention? Awesome! 

Now raise your hand if you remember the game Where’s Waldo? 

You may be wondering what those two completely different things have in common. Well, from February 26th to March 22nd, The Maxwell Mob – the one and only Romance Mafia for New York Times bestselling author Gina L. Maxwell – invites you to participate in what will no doubt be the sexiest game of Where’s Waldo? to date. 

Seducing Cinderella, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel from Entangled Publishing, hits store shelves on February 26th for its paperback debut, featuring the one and only Parker Hurley on the cover. Parker, as you may (or may not) know, was the inspiration for MMA star and super-hunk Reid Andrews.  While the world – mainly the Mob – is excited about Parker being on the cover, we began to ponder, where else in the world has this amazing model been? 

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find Parker! The contest rules are simple. The prizes? Sizzling. Let’s show the world that the Maxwell Mob truly does dominate and that Gina L. Maxwell really does bring us Romance that moves you in more ways than one! 

World Domination Contest Rules:
  1. You need to join the Maxwell Mob. Besides being the most awesome Romance group in the history of ever, it’s a great deal of fun, and being a Mobster gives you exclusive access to advance excerpts, interviews, cover reveals, and you get to hang out with Gina. It’s a win/win. You can join on Facebook or on Goodreads – although the Facebook group is more active and it allows for all of the goodies. However, if you don’t have a Facebook account, don’t let that discourage you. If you are a Goodreads user, let us know. We’ll make sure you get the goods as well! 
  2. Have a paperback copy* of Seducing Cinderella.
    *In the interest of global fairness: for those NOT in the U.S. and unable to receive a paperback version of SC before the end of the contest, use a printed copy of the cover image somewhere in the photo in place of the paperback. THEN, attach a picture/screenshot of your paperback purchase/receipt to the email entry along with your entry picture. This makes it fair for everyone!
  3. Now here’s where the fun begins. Find Parker. And you can find him anywhere. Parker Hurley has done cover shoots for nationwide outlets such as Kohl’s and has modeled for companies like Dockers. You can really find this fellow anywhere; he’s even been seen on the back of a city bus. Chances are he may be in your house in a local ad somewhere right now! If you cannot find him in public, then get creative with collages or magazines; print out pictures…anything…so long as it’s moderately tasteful. (We did say moderately.)
  4. Take a picture with Parker and your copy of Seducing Cinderella! We want creativity! Get crazy with it! Some examples could be dressing up in costumes or duping your poor significant other into playing the role of Reid to your Lucie (in things they wore in the book, of course). We stress this part – THE MORE CREATIVE, THE BETTER. You may enter the contest more than once, but make sure it’s with a different theme. Send your awesome pictures to TheMaxwellMob@gmail.com with the following:
    1. Name
    2. Email
    3. Location (store, etc. + city, state, country)
    4. Blog name you’re representing (only if applicable)
    5. Description (optional)
  5. Contestants may submit their pictures through March 22nd. All pictures will be posted to this public Pinterest board so you can scope out the competition. Mob Officers will select the Top Ten finalists, and Parker Hurley will choose the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. You heard right: the Parker Hurley will be choosing the winners, so make these entries count!
  6. So what do you get if you win? Excellent question. Gina has put together prize packages that we’re sure will tempt anyone to run to the bookstore, pull out a camera, and get clicking.
