From 26th December to 10th January I ran a giveaway at Goodreads. Paula from Rockville, Natalya from Washington, and Jo from Lincoln all won a copy of my next new release, "Portrait of a Scandal"

The promotion which ran from this site on 2nd December is now closed. The winner for that day of the Harlequin Historical Author's advent calendar giveaway is Rebecca.

You can still win lots of other fabulous daily prizes in this Advent Calendar style promotion, by following the links under the calendar below. And every time you enter, your name will be put forward for the grand prize draw of a kindle fire, which will take place on 23rd December.

The winner of the kindle fire was Jennifer from Maple Valley

Today is my day to host the Harlequin Historical Authors Advent calendar. I'm giving away a copy of "A Scandalous Regency Christmas" plus various stationery items. Of course, if you've already bought "A Scandalous Regency Christmas" or would prefer something from my backlist as the book part of the gift, or maybe even my next release, "Portrait of a Scandal", which isn't in the shops yet, I'll see what I can do!

To enter, all you need to do is find Mr Darcy, who is lurking somewhere on my website. When you've found him, just drop me an email, via my "Contact" page, to tell me where he is and I'll put your name in the hat.

Even if you don't win today, I will put your name forward for the Grand Prize Draw, taking place on 23rd December, for the kindle fire. Last year, it was one of "my" entrants who won!

So good luck, and enjoy this little "treasure hunt".

The Harlequin Historical Authors Holiday Giveaway is back. In the spirit of an Advent calendar, the authors are giving away daily prizes and a Grand Prize of a Kindle Fire (or equivalent tablet depending on your location). Play every day for more chances to win.

The Rules:

Each participating author will have an activity planned on their website for their special day. You may be asked to comment on a blog, find an ornament, or visit a Facebook page. For each day you participate, your name will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing. At the end of the month on December 23, one day from the calendar will be randomly selected. One of the entrants from that day will then be randomly selected to win the Kindle. The more days you visit, the better your chances! Happy Holidays and we look forward to seeing you.
