I am beyond excited to kick off the release of my second novel, A TASTE FOR SCANDAL, with a huge giveaway!! Before we begin, we need to answer a few questions:

  1. Do you like historical romance?
  2. Do you like signed books?
  3. Do you like free stuff?
If you answered YES to these three questions, welcome to the . . .



~ Historical Romance Palooza ~

This summer, I diligently collected signed books from my fellow historical romance writers, then somehow managed not to read them (I know, I deserve a medal!). All of this was so that I could give you the opportunity to win them! The only question left is... what's your favorite color?




I'm giving away a box of signed books (including my first book, More Than a Stranger!) to THREE lucky winners! That's a total of 36 signed books, my friends!


Purple & Pink Box








Orange & Red Box





Blue & Green Box





But that's not all! Other prizes include two A TASTE FOR SCANDAL aprons, an Erin Knightley tote, and a free copy of my Christmas e-novella, MISS MISTLETOE!

Contest open to US residents only. Open from November 27th - December 15, 2012. I'll be sending via Priority Mail so your box will arrive before Christmas. Keep them all to yourself, or share the wealth with friends and family :-) 

 Earn up to 10 entries in the drawing:
a Rafflecopter giveaway

  8. I would have to say Pink and Purple because there are more authors in that group that I haven't read. The other two I've read almost all the authors. But I wouldn't say no to any of the selections.

  9. I'm so excited about this contest! My favorite dessert is a plain pound cake with almond flavoring, mouth-watering. The orange and red books are calling my literary mind with thoughts of using these books to stimulate my body with all the romance enclosed. What an outstanding Christmas present.

  42. Erin -

    I'm so excited that it's just a few more days until December 4th and the release of A Taste For Scandal!

    My favorite "decadent dessert" to make for my husband is cherry-covered cheesecake! The recipe is a "secret family recipe from a friend who had to get up in the middle of the night to secretly write it down and then sneak it out of the house! Without giving away all the secrets one of the ingredients that makes the difference is using crushed up zwieback for the crust. For anyone one whose has paid high prices for a great bakery New York thick creamy cheesecake you'll know the advantage of being able to make it yourself!

    The thing I love the best is that it's so good he even offers to wash the dirty dishes I end up having from making it! Now that's a deal I can't resist!

    ReplyDelete
  43. My favorite dessert is Baked Alaska! I have made it many times in the past. it's really easy and everyone enjoys it because it's so sensational!

    This is the best giveaway I have ever found. I love all of these fabulous novels and would love, love, lurvvvvvvee to be a winner! *holding myself in my seat to keep from jumping up and down* Thank you so much for this fabulous giveaway!! :-)

    While I adore ALL of these fabulous authors, I would have to be honest and say my favorite colors are pink and purple and/or blue and green.

    Squeeee!

  54. Oh wow. What a collection Erin!

    My favorite deserts. Okay, I have two. One is a walnut torte. It's a pastry crust filled in with walnuts then a caramel mixture to hold it all together. It's delicious.

    Then homemade turtle brownies. A layer of chocolate brownie then a layer of melted chocolate chips, caramel and walnuts topped with another layer of brownie. So. Good. I had it for my birthday "cake" one year :)

    Thanks Erin!!

As far as my favorite desert, I have no idea, it changes with my mood, time of year, what's in the house. I'd have to say Key Lime Pie and Red Velvet Cake are on the top of my list though.

    I would suggest Cream Wafers. Delicious delicate morsels that melt in your mouth. A buttery soft cookie that you make a sandwich out of with frosting for the middle. Home made frosting with a hint of almond flavoring. Mmmmm...so Christmasy perfect!

  119. I think I missed the giveaway. Which is a shame, since my fav color is blue, and the 'box' I would love to have the most is blue as well ;). how cool is that?
    My favorite dessert is really simple, for all the bakers in our family. I love the devil's food or fudge Chocolate Box cake when made well, with rich chocolate icing right from the tub (at the grocery store). *no messing with or adding to the icing like my dad likes to do, it ruins it. And I can't get him to quit!* Simple but soo good and chocolate-y.
