Advanced Reader Copy Giveaway!

WINNER: JenJak. I got lots of emails and FB comments telling me that people were having problems commenting on the post here. I'm so sorry. I put everyone from all three sources into the virtual hat when I chose the winner. Thanks again for all the lovely compliments and for the buzz of excitement. I can't WAIT to share RfP with you come April 26th . . .

I got my first ever ARCs hot off the press and I want to share one of my two precious copies of my May release Ripe for Pleasure with a reader. So leave a comment (and an email address) and maybe you'll be my very first reader . . .

"Ripe for Pleasure is a very naughty pleasure indeed."—Bertrice Small, New York Times bestselling author of The Border Vixen

"Sexy, sumptuous, and wicked smart."
—Pam Rosenthal, RITA-Award wining author of The Edge of Impropriety

"Sensuous and sexy with flirty, witty dialogue. Truly a pleasure.”
—New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks

Ripe for Pleasure kicks off The League of Second Sons series were you'll meet a sworn group of friends who aren't destined to inherit vast fortunes and huge estates, nor the tittles that go with them . . . they have to fight for what they want, and then fight even harder
to keep it. From the back cover:

Second in line, first in love

A secret society of younger sons, sworn to aid and abet each other, no matter the scandal or cost . . . Their fathers and brothers may rule the world, but they run it . . . and when it comes to passion, the refuse to accept second best.

Searching for hidden treasure,

finding forbidden fantasy

London's most sensual former courtesan, Viola Whedon, is incapable of being seduced--she does the seducing. Until she meets Leonidas Vaughn. Her salacious memoirs have made her the target of half the lords in England, and Vaughn is the only man she can turn to. When he promises to protect her--and to make her beg for his touch--the alluring beauty finds both offers impossible to refuse.

Leonidas Vaughn secretly believes Viola possesses a fortune given to his family by the King of France. So the strong and sexy Vaughn charms his way into Viola's life . . . and her bed. But when their arrangement is consummated, he'll experience pleasure far beyond his most primal fantasies--and realize his heart may need the most protection of all.

Younger sons, fallen women, desperate competition for a treasure with a dangerous and treasonous past . . . I had a marvelous time writing it, and I hope readers enjoy it--and Leo!--as much as I do.

That sounds really good! I like the idea of a round of second sons that vow to hold each other up, essentially - it's an interesting concept, and adding treasure and fallen women - well now I just have to read this! I love a good romance where the players are, at least sexually, experienced - there is something about evening that playing field that makes the story that much better.

I've been looking for and looking forward to your new books since I read your Kalen Hughes books (still sad that there won't be more stories about "George and her boys").
I would love to read the ARC. However, I will buy the book anyway, even if I don't get the ARC :-)

P.S.: I'm in Germany (So, in case that postal rate is an argument, it will be against me)
