Valentine's Day Winners

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. I know we enjoyed being able to share it with all of you.

And now the drumroll please....

The winners to our quiz:
barrie abalard -- Sting of the Concubine
paula g. -- What Alice Wants


And now the answers to the quiz:

1) Scorpion bites are fatal -- False. Generally a scorpion bite shouldn't be fatal. There are chances of allergic reaction that can vary from person to person. There is one scorpion, the red scorpion, which actually can be fatal, mostly for children under 12 and pregnant women.

2) Scorpion bites can cause a feeling of euphoria -- True. Key word here is "can". As with most things we have an "allergic" reaction to, it can generate a sense of euphoria.

3) The first people to group the stars together to form the scorpion constellation is the Chaldeans, also known as the Babylonians. -- True.

4) Scorpions only live in holes and crevices in the ground. -- False. There are technically two types of scorpions, those that live in "dark places", like holes and crevices (which include in houses) and tree branches.

5) When scorpions court, it is not uncommon to see them perform various rituals such as clubbing, sexual sting, cheliceral massage and mate cannibalism. -- True. And this does sound like a great story in the future.

6) Scorpions make great pets. -- We'll leave this up to you.

Thanks everyone and we hope you enjoy the books!
