HISTORICAL ROMANCE QUIZ WITH #GIVEAWAY!!

Authors Grace Burrowes, Katie MacAlister, and Shana Galen would love to invite you to post their historical romance quiz. Below is the quiz written by the authors which asks your readers if they are royalty, an operative, or a member of a retinue. 

HistoricalQuiz

{This giveaway starts today (July 30) and goes through August 10th.}

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Quiz: Which Historical Romance Heroine Are You?

#1 What word best describes you?

a) effervescent
b) nonconfrontational (mostly)
c) stealthy

#2 My favorite hobby is …

a) comparative study of the male form
b) looking after my darling baron
c) target practice

c) brains

#5 What accessory do you never leave home without?

b) my composure
c) my pistol

***

HistoricalQuiz

 

If you choose mostly As … then you are as sparkling and resourceful as Her Serene Royal Highness Dagmar from The Truth About Leo by Katie MacAlister. Dagmar may have been raised in a strictly formal manner, but she’s never let that stop her from pursuing anything that catches her interest. She’s a bit quirky, marches to her own drummer, and has a fine, fine appreciation of the manly form.

TheTruthAboutLeo

If you choose mostly Bs … then you are clearly the stuff a baroness is made of, much like Millicent, from The Traitor. Milly is sweet, fierce, determined, and brave but slow to trust. Sebastian, Baron St. Clair, is ALSO sweet, fierce, determined and brave, and relentless when it comes to protecting those he cares for. Alas for both Sebastian and Milly, an enemy stalks them who is not sweet. By the time Milly is done with Sebastian’s enemies, they are not very brave either. So if you chose mostly B’s, the bad guys better steer mighty clear of you!

TheTraitor

If you choose mostly Cs … then you are equipped to be a master spy like Jane Bonde from Love and Let Spy by Shana Galen. Jane is smart, cunning, and loyal, but she has her weaknesses too. Her latest weakness goes by the name Dominic Griffyn. Planning a wedding and defeating a villain intent upon the destruction of England is tricky, but if you’re the sort who multitasks easily, then you too have Jane’s unique skills and panache.

MY THOUGHTS:

18310162THROUGH THE DEEP WATERS by Kim Vogel Sawyer is another exciting Christian Historical Fiction set in 1883 Chicago, Illinois and Florence, Kansas.

“A past filled with shame can be washed away with a love that conquers all” (from the back cover)

From a Chicago brothel, to a hotel chambermaid in Kansas, Dinah may just find the forgiveness she so seeks and the love she never thought to find.

An excellent tale of redemption, faith, healing, forgiveness and love. Written with the right mixture of romance, and emotional drama, and faith. Ms. Sawyer has once again written a tale that will capture any readers’ heart and hold their interest from beginning to end.  The characters are enticing, engaging, and intriguing. The storyline is very interesting, as well as will hold your heart and thoughts. A unique take on redemption, grace, mercy and the power of God’s love and forgiveness. Emotional and compelling, I enjoyed watching Dinah go from shame to learning to accept a gift she so desperately needed and finding the love to turn her world around. A must read! Ms. Sawyer never  fails to deliver a most powerful and merciful tale! Highly recommend! Received for an honest review from the publisher.

Rating: 4.5

Heat rating: Sweet

Excerpt:

“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”

“Nope.”

“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.

“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”

Can’t find it anywhere…”

“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”

“Sure you haven’t seen it?”

“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low.

I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.

He frowned. “No.”

“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like
some creepy perv?”

“Course I don’t f*****g think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.

“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.

“Just can’t figure out where the h**l it could be.”

Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”

“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”

“I’m not!”

A SPICY, SWEET LOVE STORY…AND SOUP. BOTH MAKE LIFE BETTER~ RETURN TO LOVE BLOG TOUR…KATHLEEN SHOOP~

Return to Love banner

Welcome, Kathleen!

A Spicy, Sweet love story… And soup. Both make life better.

 

The wide shores of the Outer Banks provide the perfect backdrop for a moving love story. Seriously, how can an author go wrong with that as the setting? Add attraction, laughter, a dash of uncertainty and in the end—profound, abiding love; and you have the ingredients that combine to make a compelling novel. Return to Love is the second book in the Endless Love series. And, although readers saw the couple—April and Hale—fall in love in Home Again, book two will allow readers to witness the deepening of their love. 

 

I know it’s tricky to write romance about a couple who is already married, but due to Hale’s service in Vietnam Return to Love shows the rekindling of their delicate relationship. In many ways their love is newly in bloom—in some ways their love is anchoring itself in the type of experience that couples recall later as a defining moment in their lives.

 

Now, don’t worry, this isn’t a doom and gloom tome—remember for me, laughter and lightness are vital elements for any romantic story to succeed. To that end, Hale tries to “make” April better and everyone knows when men try to “fix” things like their wives, humor is a must! I’ve given April a chance to heal her heart after a difficult birth by busying her hands. April spends her days harvesting oysters and learns to cook with a practiced chef, again—humor required. Like life, true romance embodies all the emotions human’s can experience. Like a good recipe, the flavors combine to create a rich, inspiring taste. Readers will find delectable recipes at the end of the book—including a spicy, sweet potato soup… the perfect embodiment of April and Hale’s love.

 

Thank you for spending time with us and our readers!

Return to Love 2About the Book:

April and Hale Abercrombie’s love is tender and sweet. While he serves in Vietnam, their marriage is marked by trust and the belief that they will grow old together with a gaggle of grandchildren at their feet. But, their charmed marriage changes in the face of losing their newborn daughter.
On leave from his tour, Hale can barely wait to hold his wife and her help her heal. When he arrives, his embrace, his touch, and his love are as perfect as April remembered. Their reunion is passionate and their physical connection is strong and soothing. But, April’s heartache remains.
Hale stumbles through his attempts to prove to April that their future will be rich and full of wonder. His good-hearted, but take-charge approach causes her to retreat. Even in grief, April can see Hale’s earnestness, yet she finds solace in putting space between them. With a short time before Hale must return to war will they see that real love endures in the face of adversity, that their marriage can be strengthened even when it looks as though all is lost?
Set on the beaches of the Outer Banks, Return to Love is the second book in the Endless Love series. Book one, Home Again, was named a finalist in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

Allure by Lacey Weatherford

New Adult Contemporary Romanc

Seventeen-year-old Brooklyn Hall has had her eye on uber sexy tattoo artist, Six Jagger for a while. There’s only one problem—she’s pretty sure he doesn’t even know she exists. A friend of her older brother, Six is five years older than her. Plus, there’s the pesky fact that he’s had a steady girlfriend for months. Still, even though she knows there’s no chance for her, she can’t seem to let the fantasy go.

Six Jagger has had a thing for Brooklyn Hall since the first time he laid eyes on her a year ago. However, after finding out her age, he wiped her off his list of possibilities. That should’ve been the end of it, but for some reason, he can’t stop watching and admiring her from afar. Happy that he’s successfully maintained his distance, all that changes on the night Brooklyn walks into Inked Edges, asking him for an illegal tattoo. After that, all his carefully constructed barriers come tumbling down, taking them on an explosive ride of lust, passion, and desire.

“All’s well that ends well, right? Too bad that wasn’t the end, but merely the beginning…”

CROSSCURRENTS

JANE JACKSON

crosscurrents

Meet my main characters:

Santo Innis is a Cornish engineer who served his apprenticeship at the world-renowned Perran Foundry, was later seconded to two respected companies in London building marine steam engines, and has now returned to Cornwall and Perran.
When and where is the story set? In Cornwall in 1830. The first trials of the Cornish multi-tube boiler using high-pressure steam actually took place here in Falmouth. But while some in the Admiralty were keen to move from sail to steam in the interests of shorter voyage times and increased productivity, many were dead set against it. Contradictory demands for speed and economy were impossible to meet and created intolerable pressures for engineers whose companies were bidding for Admiralty contracts.

What should we know about him?

After his parents were killed when he was a child, Santo was brought up in his Uncle George’s house. George Curnock is the head brewer and joint owner of Curnock’s Brewery run by his brother Arthur. George’s son, Treeve, a maltster, is two years older than Santo and has always bitterly resented him. Santo’s engineering skill has impressed shrewd businessman Richard Vaughan, heir to country estate owner Frederick Tregarron and, despite the class difference, a shared interest hot air technology has drawn them into friendship.

What is the main conflict? What messes up his life? A ship taking part in boiler trials explodes killing all on board, among them the chief engineer who was Santo’s friend and mentor. Santo’s row with Tregarron costs him his job. With his newly-developed marine engine fitted into a bare hull supplied by Richard, Santo – in debt and in love – agrees to take part in a risky venture that will solve all his financial problems. Instead he loses everything.

What is his personal goal? Appalled by the number of deaths caused by high-pressure steam boilers exploding, Santo has developed a revolutionary new engine driven by heated air. In love with Bronnen Jewell he feels he cannot propose to her until he has proved himself and cleared his debts.

 
2. Bronnen Jewell Aged twenty, she’s a skilled brewster taught by her mother. Her father manages the Gillyvean estate farm helped by her brother and two labourers. Angered by her father’s drunken brutality, Bronnen dreams of escape but can’t abandon her mother who, despite beatings, refuses to leave him. Bronnen is strong, competent, and has learned to hide her emotions until she meets Santo Innis whose replacement of the brewhouse’s water pump starts a chain of events revealing long-buried secrets.
What is the main conflict? What messes up her life? Learning that she is not who she believed herself to be.
What is her personal goal? At the beginning of the story she’s trying to understand her mother’s refusal to leave her violent husband. After Curnock’s brewery is damaged by fire, Bronnen accepts responsibility for fulfilling their orders at Gillyvean. Meanwhile the deepening attraction between her and Santo triggers terrifying nightmares. Learning the truth of her birth and the terrible price her mother has paid leads to reconciliations.

 

3. Richard Vaughan is a distant relation of Frederick Tregarron also his agent and – because Tregarron had no sons – his heir.
What should we know about him? He’s intelligent, astute, a shrewd manager of Tregarron’s multiple business interests and, since the deaths of his wife and baby, socially adept but emotionally controlled and solitary.
What is the main conflict? What messes up his life? The unexpected arrival at Gillyvean of Tregarron’s youngest daughter, Melanie. She unlocks emotions he has never experienced.
What is his personal goal? To maintain emotional distance from Melanie.

 
4. Melanie Tregarron is 20 and Frederick Tregarron’s illegitimate daughter by a titled Frenchwoman whose family fled to London during the Revolution.
What should we know about her? She was abandoned to Tregarron’s care at the age of four. His wife refused to accept her so she has been well-educated at an excellent boarding school. Disadvantaged by her illegitimacy she finds refuge in her talent for art.
What is the main conflict? What messes up her life? Following a failed reconciliation with her mother then forced to leave her post as a teacher, she flees to Gillyvean only to find her father plans to marry her off.

 


 

crosscurrentsExcerpt:

‘After giving the matter considerable thought,’ her father regarded them both with a broad smile as his restless fingers turned the stem of his wineglass, ‘I have concluded that the best interests of all concerned would be served by a match between the two of you.’
Shock stopped Melanie’s breath. Her eyes met Richard’s for one appalled moment. Unable to bear the mortification, she looked away. She had come here because there was nowhere else, and because he was her father. But he didn’t want her: couldn’t wait to shift the responsibility on to his heir. It was blackmail. The brief glimpse she had caught of Richard’s horror told her he felt the same.
‘Papa –’
‘I haven’t finished. Yes, you are distantly related, but you share no direct blood tie. And your marriage would ensure that my wealth, which is considerable, remains safely within the family. It is in every respect an excellent solution.’ He looked from one to the other, smiling in satisfaction.
Solution? Was she such a problem? Dying inside, Melanie stood up. Dropping his napkin on the table, Richard rose as well. ‘May I remind you, Papa,’ her voice trembled, ‘as your heir, Richard’s position is already secure. I was – am – grateful to you for making me welcome. Why am I now to be disposed of like – like – an unwanted gift?’ Her eyes stung with tears of rage and shame.
‘Sit down, Melanie.’ Though he was still smiling, his tone demanded obedience and he waited until she sat. Her heart pounded so hard she felt sick. ‘There is no need for all this drama.’
‘You think not?’ Her voice cracked. She did not dare look at Richard. She could still see his horror.
‘You girls and your nonsense.’ Tregarron eyed her indulgently. ‘You read romances and dream of love.’
Melanie’s face was on fire and beneath her gown her shift clung to damp skin. She felt utterly betrayed. Anger brought her chin up. ‘You mock me, Papa. But surely love offers more chance of happiness than marrying merely for financial convenience?’
‘You possess a remarkable talent, Melanie. But you have much to learn. If you must have love, it is as easy to love a rich man as a poor one. Easier. For there is little bliss to be found in poverty.’
‘That is not –’
He silenced her with a gesture. Then, draining his glass he rose from the table. ‘You will oblige me by thinking about what I’ve said. I am sure on reflection you will see the many advantages.’ He turned to the door.
‘For you, perhaps,’ Melanie threw at him.
Without pausing, her father left the room.
As the door closed behind him, Melanie bolted from her chair and paced to the window, her arms clasped protectively across her body. ‘Lessons in marriage from a man whose wife prefers to live apart from him? How dare he presume to tell me what will make me happy! He doesn’t know me at all.’
‘Melanie,’ Richard pushed back his chair. ‘Calm down.’
She dreaded facing him but there was no avoiding it. She whirled round. ‘I need no instructions from you on how to conduct myself.’
‘In this instance I must beg to differ.’
‘Oh, stop being so pompous!’
‘Perhaps you might stop being so emotional.’
‘How dare you criticise me? What gives you the right to judge? A man who has neither heart nor feelings –’ she stopped, knowing she’d gone too far, instantly wishing the words unsaid. It was not an unfeeling man who had helped her see what she had revealed in Mrs Martin’s portrait, who had spoken of past events retaining the power to hurt.
As he strode round the table, his eyes burning in a face pale with barely-controlled fury, she felt a stab of panic. But through her fear excitement flashed like lightning. The mask had finally shattered, revealing a man of powerful emotions that rivalled her own.
Standing her ground she glared back at him as defiance battled shame. Reaching her he stopped. For a moment they simply stared at each other.
Then from deep in Richard’s throat came a sound that was half growl, half groan. It sent chills racing over her skin. She gasped as his hands gripped her shoulders and hauled her hard against him. His head came down and his mouth covered hers in a passionate kiss that ravished, plundered, and demanded yet more.
After an instant’s paralysing shock Melanie melted. Her mouth softened, her lips parted, and she fell headlong.
For a long moment they clung. Then, brusquely, Richard thrust her away, his grip tight enough to bruise though she doubted he was aware of it. ‘And you don’t know me.’
‘Whose fault is that?’ she cried. ‘You live behind a wall of courtesy.’
Looking into his eyes she recognised anguish and desperation. Was it hers? A reflection? Or was she finally seeing the real man? Then he stepped back, releasing his grip. Never had she felt so alone.
‘I – that was unforgivable.’ His voice was hoarse. ‘Please accept my sincere apolo –’
‘No!’ she shouted, fighting tears. ‘I don’t want an apology. I don’t deserve it. I should never have said – what I did.’ Ashamed of herself and furious with him for shutting her out again, she rubbed her arms, trembling from the violent upheaval ignited by his kiss.
‘When I showed you Mrs Martin’s portrait you complimented me on my insight. Yet when I looked at you I saw only the mask you wear, not the man behind it. That was partly your fault. But I was wrong. Wrong to say what I did, and wrong about you.’
‘For pity’s sake, Melanie.’ His features were tight, drawn as if in pain. ‘I’m so sorry. I should never –’ His voice cracked. ‘I can’t –’ He strode out of the room. Moments later she heard the front door slam.

The Men of Fortune Series by Amber Lin:

#1 Letters At Christmas (novella) : Amazon / B&N

 

Excerpt:

It was warm in the room. Too warm. The blankets were suffocating, and someone had built a strong fire. She could smell the coal.
Coal. There was something about coal, but she couldn’t remember what. Her head felt foggy, as if filled with water, her thoughts adrift in the murky dark. There was something important she had to remember. Floating just beyond her grasp.
Cuts and bruises all over her body made themselves known as she came awake, as if they awoke too, one by one. Her palms burned, as though she’d fallen and scraped them. Her ankle throbbed—possibly she’d twisted it. Her side ached. What had happened to her?
If she held herself very still, the pain dulled to a muffled roar, just quiet enough that she could focus on other things.
Such as where she was.
And who she was.
Her eyes felt glued shut. She opened them by force of will and stared at a plain drapery striped with light and dark blue. Pretty; serviceable. She was almost sure she’d never seen it before. Almost, because she couldn’t remember what she had seen before. She could only feel certain she hadn’t.
The furniture looked heavy. Good quality. Not ornate.
That detail seemed meaningful to her. Not ornate. As if she had once lived somewhere that was ornate—with fancy tapestries and delicately carved furnishings. Somewhere much colder than here.
A faint memory of freezing water and sinewy shadows came to her, tickling her memory. Sinking, drowning. But nothing moved beneath her now, and her throat felt utterly dry. If she’d been in the water at some point, she was most definitely on land now.
She looked around, letting her gaze sweep the cozy room before landing on a large wooden chair. More to the point, the man sleeping in the chair.
His legs were spread wide—bracing himself, even in sleep. His shoulders were well above the back of the chair, his head leaning against the wall behind. He seemed too large for the furniture, like a grown man sitting on a child’s rocker in a nursery. Only, this chair was quite average-sized.
She had a sense of familiarity, of having seen him before. Which was strange, because she didn’t feel like the sort of woman acquainted with pirates.
And this man was most definitely a pirate.
He wore no jacket. She felt faintly scandalized, except he was also alone in the room with her. He was alone in the room with her, which was far worse than being in shirtsleeves. And if that weren’t shocking enough, the ties at his collar hung loose, baring a portion of his chest. Tanned. Sprinkled with dark hair. And wholly inappropriate for her to see.
She looked away—and right into his eyes. He was awake now. He’d been watching her examine him.
“Who are you?” Her voice came out low and rough. What had she been doing last night to make her voice so raw?
And had she been doing it with him?
The pirate stretched slowly, wincing as his body straightened into order. She had the sense he was rolling himself back up, as if he were a tree he had to trim just to stand upright.
“You asked me the same question last night,” he remarked.
His voice vibrated with sarcasm. He didn’t sound happy to greet her this morning. And, in fact, her sense of familiarity was completely misplaced if she’d asked for his name just last night.
“What did you answer?” she asked.
A glimmer of humor shone from his eyes before they went black again. Black like his hair. Black like the sea. He smiled, and the smile was black, too—with irony and annoyance. “I didn’t,” he said. “I’m not in the habit of explaining myself to thieves.”
