Aloha to Kelley Bowen and I'VE GOT MY DUKE TO KEEP ME WARM


Kelly Bowen joins us today to celebrate the release of I'VE GOT MY DUKE TO KEEP ME WARM.  She shares the five "hidden" gems  in Canada  ....

I am a huge outdoors person who loves to swim, hike, fish, and canoe, so take this with the grain of salt!

1)Lake of the Woods, Ontario

2)Nahanni Falls, North West Territories

3)Queen Charlotte Islands, British Columbia

4)Quebec City, Quebec

5)Hayes River, Manitoba (or for that matter, any back country lake within a 2 hour drive of Winnipeg)


Calm. Cool. Collected. Gisele Whitby has perfected the art of illusion-her survival, after all, has depended upon it. Years ago, to escape an abusive husband, Gisele "disappeared." Now she must risk revealing her new identity to save another innocent girl from the same fate. But she needs a daring man for her scheme, and the rogue in question shows a remarkable talent . . . for shattering Gisele's carefully constructed facade and igniting her deepest desires.

This isn't the first time Jamie Montcrief has awakened naked and confused from a night of drinking. It is, however, the first time a stunningly beautiful woman offers him payment afterward. Gisele has a business proposition for him, a mission involving cunning thievery and a brazen rescue. How can he say no to a plot this dangerous . . . and a woman this delectable?

Kelly Bowen

Kelly Bowen grew up in Manitoba, Canada. She worked her way through her teenage years as a back country trail guide and ranch hand and spent a year working on a cattle station in Australia. She attended the University of Manitoba and earned a Master of Science degree in veterinary physiology and endocrinology. 

But it was Kelly's infatuation with history and a weakness for a good love story that led her down the path of historical romance. When she is not writing, she seizes every opportunity to explore ruins and battlefields.

Currently, Kelly lives in Winnipeg with her husband and two boys, all of whom are wonderfully patient with the writing process. Except, that is, when they need a goalie for street hockey.

I've got Lucky to keep me warm.  We both miss Hawaii.


  1. Thank you so much for having me on your site! I have been lucky enough to visit the beautiful state of Hawaii. Still catch myself wondering how I ever made it on the plane home...

  2. Thanks for another new author and such a lovely cover!

  3. I enjoy traveling to Canada. Will add these places on my list of places to see there. Thanks for the introduction of another new author to me.

  4. Boo, hiss...the rafflecopter only has entries if you use FB or Twitter! I am impressed that Lucky allows you to 'dress' him and remains still long enough to be photographed.

  5. I love the title of this book! I have to put this book on my to buy list.

  6. I've been to a couple of Canada's hidden gems and agree that they are amazing!

  7. I've been to Niagara Falls in Canada, and l loved it. I can't enter through Rafflecopter because for some reason, it just won't connect for me. I've contacted them, and am now waiting to hear what they can do to resolve it.

  8. The cover is beautiful - I agree! There are some very talented artistic folks at Grand Central/Forever and I feel very lucky to have been able to work with them! If anyone comes travelling to Manitoba, let me know and I'd love to show you some of my favorite places. I'd recommend the summer, unless you really like the cold!!!!! Thanks everyone for the kind comments!

  9. I so love that title! It's awesome!
