Planned giveaways on the blog this month:

What will it take to put the past to rest?

Professional genealogist Melissa Grantham receives an invitation to visit her family’s ancestral home, Ashleigh Manor. From the moment she arrives, life-like dreams and visions haunt her. The spiritual connection to a medieval young woman and her forbidden lover have her questioning her sanity, but Melissa is determined to solve the mystery.

Jake Precy, owner of a nearby cottage, has disturbing dreams too, but it’s not until he meets Melissa that they begin to make sense. He hires her to research his family’s history, unaware their lives are already entwined. Is the mutual attraction real or the result of ghostly interference?

A haunting love story set partly in the present and partly in fifteenth century Kent.

This giveaway will coincide with my review.  Paperback so UK/IRL only.

You can find out about Christina Courtenay on her website.

Kristina’s stay at summer horse camp is horrible to say the least, and it’s all because Hester and Davina are there as well, making her life miserable. When Hester’s cruel prank goes terribly wrong, it’s actually what sends the three girls back to the magical land of Bernovem.

In Bernovem, Kristina is very excited to see her former friend, Prince Werrien. When he invites her to sail with him on his ship to his homeland Tezerel, putting it simply, Kristina can’t refuse. Reunited with her gnome, dwarf, animal, fairy friends … and best of all, Werrien, things seem like they couldn’t get any better for Kristina. But when Werrien becomes fascinated with an unusual seeing stone, the “Black Shard”, Kristina is haunted by a ghostlike old hag.

Struggling against suspicion, guilt, illness, and ultimately the one who wants to possess her soul, Kristina will see it’s in her weakest moment that she will encounter more strength than she has ever known.

The Black Shard is the second book in the Young Adult series that started with The Magic Warble.  This giveaway is for 3 e-copies so will be open Internationally.

You can find out about Victoria Simcox on her blog.

When the past and present collide, love is the casualty. Why?

Since splitting from her husband, single mum Anna Barnes is enjoying her new found freedom and independence. Now she can concentrate on looking after her teenage son and building up her career. However, she didn’t bank on working for Tex Garcia. 

The gorgeous American chef is getting the locals hot under the collar and not just because of his culinary prowess! Beneath that handsome exterior, however, lies a man haunted by his past. Tex can’t commit and women pass through his life like dishes going out to service. So, what is it about Anna that’s different?

Can Tex break her self-imposed rule of never mixing business with pleasure and add some spice into the mix? Or is Anna’s ex set to spoil the recipe altogether when he reappears apparently wanting reconciliation?

This giveaway is part of the blog tour for Sue Fortin’s debut novel.

  1. Some great books to read there hun I loved Paige Toon’s one but wasn’t to keen on Bond Girl 😦 different tastes for everyone will look forward to your reviews xXx

    • Loved Paige Toon’s too Rea and with some of it based in Dorset (as you know my stomping ground) felt very real! Bond Girl I enjoyed because it’s a totally different environment than I’ve ever experienced. That’s why I love reading. Takes you absolutely anywhere 🙂 I’m been reading a month ahead since October Rea. Keeping ahead of the game. Thanks for commenting. Much appreciated x

  2. You have got lots of exciting and interesting stuff coming up Shaz. I am reading Bond Girl and really enjoying the insight into that workplace. Look forward to reading your posts. x
