Look what I've got! (Book giveaway for The Harlot)

Squeeeeeeeee! My author copies of THE HARLOT have arrived, over a month before it's due in the shops!



Spice books are always gorgeous, and this one is no exception. Wow! I keep turning it over in my hands (with a stupid grin on my face :o) because I LOVE the way the book looks and feels. You can't see it in the photo but the colour on the back cover and spine is picked up from the heroine's skirt and it works so well. I'm absolutely thrilled to bits with it.

Okay, so who wants to read a copy before it's officially out and gets to the bookstores? Leave a comment on this post and I'll give away three copies by asking the Man of the House to shout out random numbers. We'll do the draw at 10pm GMT on Easter Monday.

And if you haven't already found it, there's a giveaway running over at Good Reads too.

COVER COPY:
It is a Dark Era, one when a lusty lass will do what she must to survive. Even if it means bartering flesh for a palmful of coins…

Forced to watch her mother burned at the stake and separated from her siblings in the aftermath, Jessie Taskill is similarly gifted, ripe with a powerful magic that must stay hidden. Until one night when she's accused by a rival, and Jessie finds herself behind prison walls with a roguish priest unlike any man of the cloth she has known.

In reality, Gregor Ramsay is as far from holy as the devil himself, but his promise of freedom in return for her services may be her salvation. Locked into a dubious agreement, Jessie resents his plan to have her seduce and ruin his lifelong enemy. But toying with Gregor’s lust for her is enjoyable, and she agrees to be his pawn while secretly intending to use him just as he is using her.
