February is not my favorite month ever, but it does mean we're that much closer to spring, so I'll take it. It's long been known as the month of love, so it's a great time for romance authors to hawk our wares.
I'm really thrilled that I had a book come out in January and one coming out at the end of the month to hug Valentines Day. This month is also the official anniversary of when I started writing one of those books. The Convict and the Cattleman was my first serious historical romance. It's the story of an Irishwoman sent to Australia because she attempted to steal and a grazier looking for a nursemaid to care for his niece. The unlikely pair begin to fall in love, but outside forces try to tear them apart. This story means a lot to me because it was my first serious attempt at a novel and it marks how far I've come in five years.
The other book is also a historical romance. It's set in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, which is a really romantic town, if you've never visited. My husband and I honeymooned there
You can get The Convict and the Cattleman at Amazon. Stay tuned for updates for Wildwood Spring's release on February 28!
So here's the really fun part (reading is fun, but winning is awesome sauce!): I'm giving away this sweet little necklace because it fits the themes of both releases. The tagline for The Convict and the Cattleman is 'His love is the key to her release' and in Wildwood Spring, the heroine wears a key on a chain around her neck because it's part of her mysterious past.
So I hunted and searched and found this little gem for you. All you have to do to win is leave a comment and be sure to include your e-mail address so I can send an e-mail if you win. It probably wouldn't hurt if you liked my Facebook page or followed me on Twitter, because I like that sort of thing. *wink, wink*
You have chances to win other great prizes as well from the hostesses of the blog hop. If you visit Close Encounters with the Night Kind, you can find the other authors participating in the hop.
Happy Valentines Day! I hope your silk stockings are filled with chocolate.
