Everyone is gearing up for Turkey Day! Who’s making yummy stuff?

Okay, we are still grabbing from the magic box of something different, and this week it’s…a Historical/Regency Romance. Put on your dancing slippers and get out your dance card.

Giveaway is for a paperback copy and open to U.S. residents only. Giveaway ends on Turkey Day!

He readily agrees to her conditions, with one provision of his own: Julia is forbidden from going into the tower rooms of his estate and snooping around his affairs. But the more she learns of the beastly former hero, the more intrigued she becomes…
