Aloha to Heather Boyd and MISS RADLEY'S THIRD DARE


What a woman wants…

The only person who ever understood what Julia Radley wanted most in life was the man who ruined her reputation and secured her victory in a bold swimming race. She does not hold Valentine Merton accountable for the harsh criticisms made against her character until he suggests the only way to smooth over the scandal of his defeat is to wed as soon as possible.

… the gentleman must dare.

After picking himself up after proposing, Valentine Merton is even more determined to tame the wild girl next door. The future he wants within the clockmaker’s guild depends on their speedy marriage. A few sweet words or, as a last resort, another brazen dare is sure to persuade her to take a chance on him… and his family.

Bestselling historical author Heather Boyd believes every character she creates deserves their own happily-ever-after, no matter how much trouble she puts them through. With that goal in mind, she writes sizzling regency romance stories that skirt the boundaries of propriety to keep readers enthralled until the wee hours of the morning. Heather has published over twenty novels and shorter works. She lives north of Sydney, Australia, and does her best to wrangle her testosterone-fuelled family (including cat Morpheus) into submission.

To celebrate MISS RADLEY'S THIRD DARE, I am giving away a book choice from my convention stash to one randomly selected commenter.  To enter the giveaway,

1.  The book blurb refers to clock making ... so let's chat about clocks!  Do you have any vintage or beloved clocks in your home?  We have a grandfather clock my husband purchased in the Netherlands when he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel.

2.  Comments are open through Saturday, August 15, 10 pm in Baltimore.

3.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, August 16.

  12. I have a few small clocks around, but no Grandfather clocks (I've always loved them). One of them is a Cuckoo Clock - it needs some repairs and has been in a box since I took it down for some renovations.

  23. I have a vintage clock which probably dates to the 30s or 40s. It looks like several city skyscrapers with a clock in the middle--made by Sessions Clock Company of Connecticut.
