That's right—last week a small, inconspicuous box showed up on my doorstep. Curious, I sliced through the tape, pulled back the cardboard flaps, and discovered...
Advanced Reader Copies of A TASTE FOR SCANDAL!!!
Woohoo! I'm soooo excited to hold this book, the second in the Sealed with a Kiss series, in my hot little hands. There is so much of me in this book, especially since the heroine, Jane Bunting, is a baker. You'll find this novel filled with the warmth and smells of her bakery, your mouth watering right along with the hero, Richard's. There are scones, and biscuits (that's cookies for you non-Anglophiles), and breads, and cake—all the things that define Jane's talent and passion.
I have to admit, I gained a few pounds while writing this one. Not only did I test each and every one of the Regency-appropriate recipes Jane and Richard made together, but it all just sounded so delicious as I wrote and revised, that inevitably I'd run upstairs and filch a sweet or two (or ten).
The release date for this book isn't until December 4th, 2012, but one lucky commenter will win one of the ARCs and be one of the very first to read of Richard and Jane's romance :) Contest is open to US, Canada, and Mexico.
1) Leave a comment below with your email address (if you don't wish to leave it publicly, leave a comment then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I know where to find you if you win)
2) Spread the word! No, I'm not going to check up on you, but I'd really appreciate any tweets, Facebook posts, 'liking' the book on Amazon, or even recommendations to your friends about this book :-)
*Winner will be selected on Monday, September 10 at 8PM EST*

A TEMPTING DIVERSION
Things have always fallen into place for Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh. His good looks, abundance of charm, and the small matter of being heir to a marquisate make him quite the catch. So when a delectable young woman wants nothing to do with him, he can't help but seize the irresistible challenge.
AN UNLIKELY COURTSHIP
Jane Bunting knows all about responsibility—she has managed to support herself and her brother with their bakery—but she knows nothing of excitement or passion. When dashing Lord Raleigh crosses the threshold of her shop, she has no idea of the potential danger to her reputation . . . or to her heart.
AN IMPOSSIBLE MATCH
Neither imagined things would go so far—until the night their worlds collide, irrevocably changing both their lives. But when duty calls for Richard, and with everything Jane has worked for suddenly at stake, will their taste for scandal be their downfall?
