It’s release day for CHRISTMAS BRIDES!
Huzzah, huzzah! I am so very excited!
And, I'm so very, very sorry!
Yes, that’s right—my delight comes with reservations, because this means that the Christmas book season is now officially open. Which is why I am sorry. Because I’m not ready for it to be the Christmas Season, either. I’m not even ready for it to be Halloween, much less Thanksgiving or the Yule!
So to assuage my guilt over having to force the holidays upon you, and to get into the proper spirit of the season, I am giving away five (5) copies of CHRISTMAS BRIDES, the marvelous anthology of four Christmas stories from historical romance authors Suzanne Enoch, Alexandra Hawkins, Valerie Bowman and me!
My contribution to this collection is THE SCANDAL BEFORE CHRISTMAS, which came out as a digital-only release last December. So those of you who have waited patiently for the print version, now is your chance to read this charming story set in the Regency era countryside:
Lieutenant Ian Worth needs a wife by Christmas. He has to find her, woo her, and wed her before he goes back to sea. Anne Lesley is a shy spinster with no prospects, so she accepts Ian’s hasty offer only for the security it will bring. But when a midwinter storm rolls in, things start to heat up between them…and they might just find the last present they expected: true, honest-to-goodness love…
So now that we are thinking of Christmas presents, what is the best Christmas Present you ever got? (For me it would be the horseback riding lessons I got the year I was in 5th grade. Oh the joy!) Or what would be the one present that you want, but really don’t expect to get this year (Like a kiss from Daniel Craig.) :)
Winners will be chosen by random from all comments made on Wednesday at 6pm CST. Be sure to check back to see if you’ve won.
