Book Giveaway

Morning! Today, we celebrating the recent release of Julie Lessman's latest novel, Dare to Love Again. The review is up on the blog for those of you who are unfamiliar with the story and also, here's a chance for you to win a copy of said novel on the off chance you haven't read it. Which we know is highly unlikely. *wink* I wasn't expecting to review this book so when it showed up from the lovely folks at Revell, I already had a copy on its way from Amazon so what does that mean for you...? Of course, I have an extra copy on my shelf and I'd love for one of you to have it!

First things first, here are those pesky rules.

Due to shipping costs, the giveaway(s) is open to U.S readers. Also, please I will just ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not nearly as easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - believe it or not, there have been a couple people that I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it!

To be entered in the giveaway, just enter as much or as little as you like into the Rafflecopter widget... and good luck everyone! This ends on January 28th.
Book Synopsis:
Spunky Allison McClare is determined to be a fearless, independent woman, resorting to a mammoth hat pin for protection on her way to and from the school where she teaches. But when she takes a notion to explore the wild Barbary Coast she quickly discovers she is no match for rum-soaked brute strength.

Detective Nick Barone would rather do almost anything than teach this petite socialite jiu-jitsu, but it seems he has little choice in the matter. Sparks fly every time the two meet until a grudging friendship develops into something deeper. But when Nick suddenly leaves town, Allison realizes he’s a fraud just like all the rest of the men she’s cared for. Does she dare love again?
