A Very Special Sandra Brannan Giveaway

I am deeply honored to be able to give away an exclusive CD to one of my readers. This CD is a special song sung by Sandra Brannan's sister, Stephanie Lien D'Urso. It is the song
Nessun Dorma, most known for being sung by Luciano Pavarrati.

From Wikipedia: (because they know all, right?)
Nessun dorma (English: None shall sleep)[1] is an aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini's opera Turandot,[2] and is one of the best-known tenor arias in all opera. It is sung by Calaf, il principe ignoto (the unknown prince), who falls in love at first sight with the beautiful but cold Princess Turandot. However, any man who wishes to wed Turandot must first answer her three riddles; if he fails, he will be beheaded.

It comes up in the middle of Lot's Return for Sodom, where Liv is having a tense stand off against the motorcycle gang. This song comes into her head.

Sandra was kind enough to send me a copy for one of you!

I would love this to be given to someone who has read the books or plans on soon, so this song can mean a lot when listened to.

If you are not familiar with the song, click here to listen to Luciano.

Contest Rules:
* Follow my blog, please.
* Reside in the United States
* Leave an Email Address

Winner will be chosen at the end of the month, June 30.

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!
