Romance is in the Air Giveaway Hop
Featuring Young Adult & Clean Adult Romance
February 8th to 14th
I’m really excited about this giveaway hop because of it’s theme–romance. Can you live without love? I can’t. I’m surrounded by love in all forms and shapes, from the sun’s gold upon the world to the butterfly dance, to the soft touch of a hand. For as long as I can dig down the memory lane I loved, starting with kindergarten (and yes i still remember the boy’s name ;). I’m a sucker for books, all things romance and the road to finding love. I believe that love colors our lives, conquers all fears and makes us better individuals. I believe in its power to heal and make us stronger, unlike any other emotion. And a heart without emotions it’s a stony one.
I celebrate love in all my books, helping my heroes to find love and fall in love because as the Beatles song says, “All we need is love,” right?
And since today’s giveaway must feature YA & clean adult romance, I have the perfect books that fit the requirement. I’m giving away one e-copy of my historical romance Born In Vengeance (Dacian Legends–book# 1) and Born In Sin (Dacian Legends–book# 2).

The Seduction of Emily

by Rachel Brimble

Historical Romance

Publisher: eKensington

Release Date: April 1, 2013

Heat Level: Steamy

Length: 225 pages

Available at:

Amazon     ARe    B&N     BookStrand     Kobo

Description:

Seduction is a wicked game, and no one plays it better than the devilish Will Samson in Rachel Brimble’s captivating new novel. . .

Since girlhood, Emily Darson has accepted that she will marry Nicholas, the son of her father’s trusted business partner. The marriage contract safeguards her family legacy, Emily’s fortune, and everything she values–except her independence. Only when a sinfully handsome scoundrel enters her life does Emily realize quite how much a loveless match will cost her.

Will Samson has advanced from expert pickpocket to confidence trickster of the highest caliber. Now he has come to Bath to exact vengeance on the man who destroyed his mother–the man Emily will soon marry. But from his first glimpse of the enemy’s bewitching, spirited fiancé, Will’s plan changes.

Amid the ballrooms and salons of elegant society, heated glances explode into scandalous kisses. Revenge is sweet, but surrender will be irresistible. . .

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains adult sexual situations and/or adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.

Excerpt

His caught breath released in a low whistle. Attraction twitched his groin. “My God, tell me you’re not his.”

His gaze languidly travelled from the tip of the feather in the woman’s hat, to the glossy black hair curled and twisted beneath it. Her eyes were big and dark, her skin as smooth as glass over sweet apple cheeks. The vivid royal blue dress she wore was pulled in at a waist small enough to fit in his splayed hands, her stature poised and proud. She was exquisite.

Will smiled. Although her ample bosom was decently covered, the soft white netting revealed the faintest hue of her flesh. What he wouldn’t give . . . He forced his gaze upward and stiffened. She stared straight at him—and her mouth twitched with amusement. He pulled back his shoulders and flashed her a smile.

She didn’t lower her eyes as he expected.

Intrigued, he tipped her a wink.

A moment passed before she surprised him again. She did not turn away in disgust or demand Milne punch him to the ground; instead the minx winked straight back. Desire hit Will hard in the gut as a bubble of laughter tickled the back of his throat.

Who was she? He revelled in the tinge of pink staining her cheeks and suspected inside, she laughed right along with him.

Their secretly shared moment came to an abrupt end when her companion took her hand and placed it possessively in the crook of his arm. He led her in Will’s direction and Will bowed as they passed.

About the Author

rbrimble-authorphoto

I live with my fantastic husband, our two young daughters and my beloved black Labrador, Max in a small market town near the famous Georgian City of Bath.  Having always ‘played’ with writing, I didn’t seriously sit down and write toward publication until I became pregnant with my second daughter – then I told myself to get my butt in the chair and get on with it before she grows up and I’m forced to get a real job!

Lots of short stories followed as did lots of rejections!  I took a few distance learning courses, joined some online writers groups and basically, learned my craft.  Finally deciding short stories weren’t working for me (they are an art form in themselves!), in 2006 I decided to embark on my first novel and voila Searching For Sophie was born!  Since then, my other books have followed each year.

And when I’m not writing? You’ll find me with my head in a book or walking the beautiful English countryside with my family.  And in the evening?  Well, a well-deserved glass of wine is never, ever refused.

September is for Sequels Giveaway Hop
Septemberisforsequels
September 2nd to 9th
The general rule for this fun hop (with over 100 bloggers signed up) is that the book must be a sequel in a series, can’t be the first one, but it can be any number from 2 on.
As it happens, a few months ago I released book # 2  in my historical romance series Dacian Legends titled BORN IN SIN, a perfect match for this giveaway. Over 600 people added the book to their TBR list on GoodReads since its release, gaining on average 4.11stars ratings on the same site. So excited about its success.

For your chance to win one e-copy all you have to do is add BORN IN SIN to your TBR list on GoodReads. In the comments section leave a link to your TBR and your answer to the question: WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SERIES?
I have way too many series that I absolutely love, but lately I’ve been in a historical-romance-crave so I’d say Mary Baloghs series about the Bedwyn’s siblings is my favorite. 
Don’t forget to hop over to the other bloggers. Everyone has amazing giveaways!
