Thanks to Grace and the lovely Danielle at Sourcebooks, I have an awesome prize pack of two signed books: THE BRIDEGROOM WORE PLAID and ONCE UPON A TARTAN to giveaway to one lucky winner. Yes, that right - 1 winner, 2 books. Please see the end of the post for the giveaway deOnce Upon a Tartan Covertails.

For the entire MONTH of August, each day (during the work week) a different blog will host a giveaway of print copies of THE BRIDEGROOM WORE PLAID and ONCE UPON A TARTAN! This is a great opportunity for a chance to start the emotional and sensual Scottish Victorian-set MacGregor romance series from the beginning, and win two books (open to US and Canada only). The full schedule is below!

This month-long celebration is in honor of ONCE UPON A TARTAN

     Honor or happiness—he can’t have both.

    Tiberius Flynn may be every inch an English lord, but smart, headstrong beauty Hester Daniels has no use for his high-handed ways--no matter how handsome, charming, or beguiling he is. They only see eye to eye in caring about the feisty little girl who is under their protection.
    Tiberius's haughty insistence that his wealthy estate in England is a better place for the child than her beloved, rundown Scotland home sparks Hester's fierce protectiveness, and the battle lines The Bridegroom Wore Plaid Coverare drawn

Here is some early praise for ONCE UPON A TARTAN:

  1. Hi, Mason--thanks for offering this great giveaway! I shared the post at Facebook and Google Plus : )

  2. Mason - Thanks for sharing these books. There's no doubt about it - certain places and eras just lend themselves to a romance, and 'tartan romances' can be quite well-done.

  3. I don't know how I missed this snippet about you before, Grace. "A practicing attorney specializing in family law." Good grief--I must not be very observant. I was a legal secretary for over 30 years, usually working for four attorneys at a whack (whew!)--but only in family law for one year...civil litigation the rest. Do you think your family law practice has helped you in any way with your story writing in the genre you've chosen?

  4. Congrats to Grace on the new release. I've been a fan since I picked up the Windham series.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
