Book give-away winners!

Finally! Today is December 17 (ergg, a day late!) I’ve used the random number generator website to select the two winners for Christensen’s OF MOTHS AND BUTTERFLIES. The first winner will receive the signed hard-copy of the book, and the second winner will receive an e-book version!

Archer Hamilton is a collector of rare and beautiful insects. Gina Shaw is a servant in his uncle’s house. Clearly out of place in the position in which she has been discovered, she becomes a source of fascination . . . and curiosity.

A girl with a blighted past and a fortune she deems a curse, Gina has lowered herself in order to find escape from her family and their scheming designs. But when she is found, the stakes suddenly become dire.

All Gina wants is the freedom to live her life as she would wish. All her aunts want is the money that comes with her. But there is more than one way to trap an insect. An arranged marriage might turn out profitable for more parties than one.

Mr. Hamilton is about to make the acquisition of a lifetime. But will the price be worth it? Can a woman captured and acquired learn to love the man who has bought her?

Book Give-away contest winner!!!!

 

 In the war against Napoleon, there are no easy victories.

1812.  Europe has been at war for twenty years. Britain stands alone against the greatest threat to peace the world has ever known, at daily risk of a French invasion and revolution that would consign 1066 to a footnote.  In London, a handful of men struggle to protect their country and maintain the war effort.  Among them, the Earl of Myddelton, code-breaker to the Foreign Office, strives to crack the most difficult French code yet—the Grand Chiffre—before still more men die on the battlefields of Europe.

Then, on 11 May 1812, the Prime Minister is assassinated.  Amid widespread panic and fear of a French conspiracy, the government falls.  

From the ballrooms of London, to the backstreets of power, to the death-in-waiting coast of enemy France, Myddelton is drawn inexorably into the deepening crisis—his private life unravelling all the while, as misunderstandings, gossip and spite threaten to destroy his marriage, his inheritance and his career.

“This is a love story for the ages, a delicious bit of yummy to sink your eyes into on a rainy afternoon in winter. And a tale of intrigue and courage. And a showcase of a fascinating time in British history.” –author and editor, Cheri Lasota

“For me, the historical backdrop was immediately gripping; however, it was the evolution of Myddleton’s character from a callow cad to a seasoned adult that brought the story to life.”  –Avon A author of Watermark: A Novel of the Middle Ages, Vanitha Sankaran

Finally! Today is March 1st—the end of the contest to win a signed copy of M.M. Bennett’s book, MAY 1812! I used the random number generator website to select the winner. Some people have three entries because, as I mentioned on the contest guideline, those who mention this contest on their blog get two more points.
