One Day Giveaway!


Mary Howard has always lived in the shadow of her powerful family. But when she's married off to Henry Fitzroy, King Henry VIII's illegitimate son, she rockets into the Tudor court's inner circle. Mary and "Fitz" join a tight clique of rebels who test the boundaries of court's strict rules with their games, dares, and flirtations. The more Mary gets to know Fitz, the harder she falls for him, but is forbidden from seeing him alone. The rules of court were made to be pushed...but pushing them too far means certain death. Is true love worth dying for?

Want to know more about BRAZEN?  I'm giving everyone who comments on this blog special access to what goes on inside Mary's head and between the covers of the book!

Today, for one day only, if you leave a comment--any number between 3 and 512--I will reply with one sentence from that page of the book!

One comment per person (so choose your number wisely!), and every comment gets TEN entries.  Tweets, Twitter follows and Facebook likes all get one point each.  This giveaway is open internationally, but be aware that the giveaway is scheduled for EST and there may be times during the day that I'll be sleeping or otherwise occupied so there may be a delay in my reply!

    2. Maybe there are too many section breaks in this book? And absolutely make up your own! Beheadings? Treason? So much to choose from...

  5. 28 =) Me, my brother, and my sister-in-law were all born on the 28th of different months, so it is supposed to be my family's lucky number...

    2. I am super excited to get to page 468 now! "But he does", what? I also wanted to say I love the cover, it's GORGEOUS, congratulations.

    3. Thanks, Wilhelmina! I love it, too--I so badly want a necklace with that pendant on it. :) I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of BRAZEN (and page 468).

      PS--LOVE your avatar.

    4. Thank you! I was obsessed with everything Queen Elizabeth when I was ten, but when I learned her mother was beheaded for witchcraft I quickly switched to being obsessed with King Henry's wives. I have read so much about Anne Boleyn I feel like she is an old friend, but Anne of Cleves is my favorite. Do you have a favorite?

      Delete
    5. I have a special fondness for Anne of Cleves, too! She always seemed like the lucky one, to me.
