Giveaway Tuesday!

Due to my own silly scheduling snafu, today’s planned guest post from Alyssa Maxwell (author of the lovely new “Gilded Newport” mystery series!) will run next week.   So, let’s do a giveaway for today instead!  I have been cleaning out boxes of back copies of my older titles (if anyone knows anyplace that needs foreign language copies, let me know!), and need to make some space. :)

LadyMidnightCoverSo I will give away one copy of my out-of-print 2005 title Lady Midnight (which will be released as an ebook later this year!).  I loved writing this touch-of-gothic, moors of Yorkshire, governess in disguise story…

From the back cover:

Everyone that Katerina held dear has perished in a tempest off the coast of Italy.  With not a penny to her name, the once-moneyed Venetian lady knows she must travel far to forge a new life.  No one would ever accept her if they knew her mother Lucretia Bruni, an infamous courtesan breeding Katerina to fill her shoes one day…

Still mourning his late wife, Michael Lindley knows life must go on–and that his little sister and daughter need a woman’s nurturing.  When a dark-eyed beauty alights on his doorstep, claiming to be a widowed governess, he feels a fire rekindle in him he thought was snuffed out long ago.  And Katerina, who thought her capacity to love had gone down with the ship, there flares a yearning only Michael can subdue.

But just as they give in to the desire that knows no words, a wealthy enemy plots his revenge…and their newborn passion must undergo the ultimate test…

I loved writing this book (which was an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award nominee!), since I cut my romance writing teeth on stuff like Victoria Holt and Mary Stewart!  I will give away one signed copy to a commenter today.  Who are some of your favorite Gothic authors???

    I am a die hard Brontë fan – and of course Daphne du Maurier. Thanks so much for the giveaway – this is right up my alley!

    I did not read a lot in gothic but I loved Daphne du Maurier and of course the Bronte sisters. Your book sounds interesting, I am hoping to read it!

    I enjoyed that book when it came out, Amanda! I also remember there were some secondary characters who seemed to need a story. Did you ever write that? (Apologies for my bad memory.)

    I just started reading for fun in November, I still have to look up some genre’s definitions, and even then I can’t really tell if a book I’ve read fits into the category. Thanks for the chance though I love historicals (one that I don’t need to look up: ;) )

  5. What about mary shelleys frankinstein. That is one they read In regency times and still read today

    I enjoyed Victoria Holt and Daphne Du Maurier years ago. I haven’t read much gothic romance recently.

    I don’t know how I missed this one — I thought I’d read all your books! I love Mary Stewart’s romantic suspenses, and Daphne du Maurier too.
