More News to Celebrate!

Hey everyone! I know we're smack in the middle of my 500(+) Blog Follower Appreciation Giveaway, but I just couldn't wait to share my new news! My third sweet medieval romance, Dangerous Favor, has been picked up by Walnut Springs Press for a January 2012 release! So of course, I MUST celebrate! And really, is there any other way to celebrate than with chocolate??? 




And really, what's the fun of celebrating alone? I'd much rather celebrate with all of you. So I'm offering a $25 gift certificate for See's Chocolates to one lucky person who leaves a comment on this blog. That's it, just leave a comment with your email address. (Don't forget that part so I can contact you if you win!)


Deadline will be Tuesday, September 20, midnight PST. 'Kay?


My book is all polished up, but my blurb for it is still rough. Still, here's a little taste of what it's about!


Dangerous Favor is a kind of dual romance for Etienne de Brielle and Therri de Laurant, both of whom appeared in my medieval romance, Loyalty's WebMy heroine, Mathilde de Riavelle, is in dire need of a champion. Her father has been falsely accused of theft from the king and his family has since been reduced to poverty. Mathilde has one chance to find and marry a man with the wealth and connections to help her prove her father's innocence. At first, she believe that man is Therri, heir to a rich barony and a man who appears to embody all of her romantic dreams. But Therri is in love with a proud, beautiful widow named Violette. Etienne, the younger son of a disgraced family, has neither wealth nor connections, but he is smitten with Mathilde at a glance. Alas, when he tricks her into granting him her favor, a sleek white ribbon, for a tournament, she becomes convinced that he is only out to seduce her. Can Therri thaw the beautiful Violette's heart, and can Etienne convince Mathilde that he is the true hero of her dreams in time to save her from a nightmare from her past?


This is just the first of my celebrations. Stay tuned for more in the future! And don't forget to enter my 500(+) Blog Follower Appreciation Giveaway if you haven't already! (Click here to enter.)
