Giveaway!

Would you like a chance to win one of two copies of The Laird Takes a Bride?

It’s the second book of my Penhallow Dynasty series, in which Alasdair Penhallow, laird of his clan, is forced to end his rollicking bachelorhood thanks to an ancient decree which requires him to wed — or die. Fate serves up Miss Fiona Douglass, prickly and strong-willed, and just as reluctant as Alasdair to give up her freedom. It’s hardly an auspicious start to a marriage. But there are surprises in store for each of them . . .

Bookish punning!

“Red and black devoré velvet, the vividness of the red moving from the shoulders towards the black froth of net around the hem. The 1930s witnessed a return to a more elongated silhouette, skirts lengthening once again.”

“Some useful new words for readers”

I am, I believe, most prone to Buchendschmerz and Stapelschuldgefühl.
