August Giveaway



Who isn't a romantic? I know you're out there, but being a writer I tend to hang with the Jane Austen crowd or be drawn to sweet, uplifting contemporary romances. This month our giveaway is for a Victorian suspense with sweet romance and Regency ties. Author Debra Brown wrote Amazon bestseller, The Companionship of Lady Holmeshire after a deep study of period dramas. She is the woman behind English Historical Fiction Authors, a blog I follow because of the excellent, sourced articles that cover a range of topics of English history. If you enjoy history, I recommend signing up for those informative posts via email. 

The Companionship of Lady Holmeshire is about Emma Carrington, a foundling sent to work for the Countess of Holmeshire. When the Countess decides to make her a personal companion, Emma must enter society and deal with the problems of knowing she is lower class and falling for a gentleman already taken. There is also suspense, humor, and a surprise twist. This novel has good reviews from both Goodreads and Amazon. I know I'm anxious to read it. Are you ready?

The early Victorian story The Companion of Lady Holmeshire was the result. She is now working on The Dante and Evangeline Series. For the Skylark was inspired by the Dickens’ character, Miss Havisham.
