Sunday Giveaway!

One last giveaway for this week!  Today I have two copies of one of my out-of-print titles from 2005, Lady Midnight.  I loved writing this one--it was very influenced by all the Gothic novels I gobbled up when I was a kid.  (and watch for it in e-book later this year!)

This one was an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award nominee (Best Historical Mystery/Gothic) and a Bookseller’s Best Award finalist/winner, Long Historical

A courtesan in training...

Everyone that Katerina held dear has perished in a tempest off the coast of Italy.  With not a penny to her name, she knows she must travel far to forge a new life.  No one would ever accept her if they learned that her mother was Lucrezia Bruni, the infamous courtesan who was breeding young Katerina to fill her shoes someday...

A governess in hiding...

Still mourning his late wife, Michael Lindley knows life must go on--and that his little sister and daughter need a woman's nurturing.  When a dark-eyed beauty alights on his doorstep, claiming to be a widowed governess, Michael feels a fire rekindle in him that he thought snuffed out long ago.  And in Katerina, who thought her capacity to love had gone down with the ship, there flares a yearning only Michael can subdue....

It's Alive! And Giveaway Week

I have just woken up from my winter hibernation to see that there are lilacs in my backyard!  And sun, and green grass!  At last!  I have also just realized I have been a terrible blogger, not even visiting here since (gasp!) January.  So much is happening, though, that I have decided to revive this blog and post at least once a week about life and love, chocolatinis, books, Sleepy Hollow--y'know, all the important stuff.

To get started (and because I also just cleaned out my garage and found boxes and boxes full of old copies of my books), I am going to launch a week's worth of giveaways.  Every day a different book.  Today, we'll start with signed copies of my "Muses of Mayfair" trilogy!

The Chase Muses!  Three adventure-loving sisters find dashing rakes to wed!

Meet Calliope (the sensible one), Clio (the intellectual one), and Thalia (the beautiful one--and the one her sisters always underestimate!), three daughters of a famous antiquarian in Regency England, and their three handsome suitors.  I loved writing these books, since I always wanted a sister of my own (and always had a fascination with archaeology!)

I'll be giving away a complete signed set of the Muses trilogy to one commenter today!!!  What have you been doing since spring has finally sprung??  If you could visit any archaeological site, where would it be?  (I have a dream to visit Pompeii--or Sicily, like Clio Chase...).  What have you been reading lately???

Also, a very happy Mother's Day to the best, loveliest, and wisest of moms!
