Sherry (MsJones) | 4 comments Four Sisters, All Queens is now available as a Goodreads Giveaway! Here's the description, from Simon & Schuster:

From the award-winning author of the controversial international bestseller The Jewel of Medina, an historical novel that chronicles the lives of four sisters, all daughters of Beatrice of Provence—all of whom became queens in medieval Europe.

When Beatrice of Savoy, countess of Provence, sends her four beautiful, accomplished daughters to become queens, she admonishes them: Family comes first. As a result, the daughters—Marguerite, queen of France; Eleanor, queen of England; Sanchia, queen of Germany; and Beatrice, queen of Sicily—work not only to expand their husbands’ empires and broker peace between nations, but also to bring the House of Savoy to greater power and influence than before. Their father’s death, however, tears the sisters apart, pitting them against one another for the legacy each believes rightfully hers—Provence itself.

Told from alternating points of view of all four queens, and set in the tumultuous thirteenth century, this is a tale of greed, lust, ambition, and sibling rivalry on a royal scale, exploring the meaning of true power and bringing to life four of the most celebrated women of their time—each of whom had an impact on the history of Europe.

Four Sisters, All Queens by Sherry Jones


Suzan Tisdale (suzantisdale) | 20 comments Free Giveaway this month here at Goodreads! ;o)
Laiden's Daughter
Scotland, 1344
She believes men are not honorable nor are they kind-until she meets one that changes her heart forever.
Betrayed by lies told before her birth, Aishlinn is raised by a harsh and cruel stepfather. Her life is forever changed one horrifying night when she is forced to flee England for the safety of the Scottish Highlands. Rescued by a fierce band of highland warriors, Aishlinn soon learns that honorable men do exist. She finds a strength she never knew she possessed and it will be tested to the limits when she is forced to make a heart-wrenching decision…allow the English to kill those she loves, or surrender for the crime she committed.

She is everything he never knew he wanted in a woman….

As a fierce highland warrior, Duncan McEwan has survived numerous battles, bed countless women, and survived a horrific storm at sea. He has scaled mountains and even survived hand-to-claw battle with a cat-o’mountain. But none of that could have prepared him for how his life forever changed one fateful spring day when he rescued a lass from a freezing stream. He will do anything to keep her as his own and will risk everything to keep her out of the hands of the English.

Like Gabriel, with some humility I will blow this note: The Other Alexander just won the gold award for best historical fiction of 2011 from eLit Book Awards.

Love is a fragile thing when you're a slave in the house of the richest man in Rome.

First of all thank you for your interest. I don't run the site, but I know that sometimes the comments have to await moderation. In this case the comment doesn't show up right away, but it does get submitted. It will usually give a message to that effect. In any case, would you mind sending me a message here on my page at Goodreads? That way if your comment does not go through, I can add you to the list myself. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Anya Wylde (anyawylde) | 1 comments Hi Everyone,

My book ‘The Wicked Wager’ is now free on amazon until the 5th November.

‘The Wicked Wager’ is a humorous murder mystery & romance set in Regency England. Here is a brief description:


‘The infamous rake, Lord Richard Hamilton, has finally chosen his bride—the very appropriate Miss Emma Grey.
The ton approves, Lord Grey is pleased, Lady Grey delighted, and Emma is over the moon, but her uncle, (the blasted) Duke of Arden opposes the match, and Emma is ordered to move to the duke’s estate to think things over.
Richard Hamilton refuses to take things lying down and concocts a plan. A plan that should have brought the lovers together and had them married within a month. It was a simple matter of masquerading as the duke’s gardener, compromising the lady, and then having the duke rush them off to Gretna Green.
Alas, he underestimates the duke’s intelligence and the tangled situation on the estate—never had he imagined that compromising a lady could be so difficult.
His endeavours lead to a comedy of errors, charades, and knotty love affairs. Yet he forges ahead in spite of pesky house guests, a flea bitten mattress, his lovesick best friend, and a blackmailer.
Just when things seem to be going well, someone is murdered (very inconvenient), and he happens to be one of the suspects (extremely inconvenient).
His simple plan for winning the wager suddenly becomes … a tad complicated.’

This is the amazon link to download it for free

I hope you enjoy it :)

Pauline Montagna (pauline_montagna) | 4 comments My name is Pauline Montagna, and my book, Not Wisely but Too Well, is being launched today. I'm holding a Free Giveaway between today and November 29 on Goodreads, but if you can't wait until then, take advantage of my Book Launch Special Offer. Until Tuesday November 20th, you can get a FREE EBOOK copy from Smashwords, (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...) or a HALF PRICE PRINT COPY from Lulu (http://www.lulu.com/shop/pauline-mont...).

Keep a look out for my Q&A which will begin around December 15. My website is at http://paulinemontagna.net.


How did Will Shakspere of Stratford-upon-Avon, the son of illiterate parents, with barely a grammar school education, become the greatest playwright the English theatre will ever know? How did he learn his craft? How did he gain the knowledge his plays display? What was his own experience of the love, passion, pain and ambition he wrote into every line?

This is the story of how that journey began. Not Wisely but Too Well (The Stuff of Dreams #1) by Pauline Montagna


Catherine Richmond | 8 comments We're talking about mail order brides and giving away a copy of Spring for Susannah on http://www.fictionherofeatures.com/


I.J. Miller | 7 comments WUTHERING NIGHTS, out today: http://www.amazon.com/Wuthering-Night...

Two E-book Giveaways available.

This is not your usual erotic mashup, with a lot of original text and sex scenes just thrown in. While keeping very true to the themes and characters, I dug in deep to add several new plot twists and turns that help make the eroticism completely organic and intensifies greatly the romance that existed in the original historical classic. Heathcliff and Catherine are fantastic characters to explore, deeply passionate, deeply flawed.

The second book in my sweet Regency romance series, A Gentleman's Daughter, is out. There is a GR giveaway for the paperback through March 4 and I am giving away ebooks to anyone willing to post an honest review on the site of their choice. Please message me if interested. Thanks!

A Gentleman's Daughter  Her Folly (Gentleman's Daughter, #2) by Reina M. Williams

Here's the blurb:
Felicity Wilcox, disguised as a young man, flees Naples aboard a vessel returning to her native England. A man from her past, Captain Hugh Mountbank, recognizes Felicity, but plays along with her ruse—until the two must dispose of a murdered man and journey together to her family’s home.

Amid the seeming gaiety of visits and house parties, Felicity and Hugh attempt to keep their family and friends safe, as they also work to uncover the truth about each other. Soon, they not only must protect their loved ones, but also their hearts from the growing feelings between them. When danger comes to call, can Felicity and Hugh trust each other, or will their game of subterfuge and intrigue be their final folly?
