Rain & Dancing on Air Giveaway

Hi everyone,

I did mention earlier in the year that I would do another giveaway. Well, I thought what better time than around Christmas?
 Of course the fact that both my new books were published in November may have a little to do with it. J

As I have two books to celebrate I’ll be giving away two prizes.

The first is inspired by my medieval fairytale, Rain. I have one pair of sterling silver (925) and faceted Swarovski crystal earrings. They measure approximately 2.5 cm in total drop and the crystal is about 1.2cm. These are very pretty, dainty earrings, which remind me of two little raindrops.

1216 AD

Nuri is caught between heaven and hell. Two men fight for her love and her soul. The first is Maras, an elemental being who follows the storms. The second is Brother Erebus, a pious monk whose tortured soul is twisted by his desire for her. But Nuri may sacrifice more than her heart when the Church brands her angel a demon. As Brother Erebus will do anything to protect her soul from the silver haired devil, even if he has to crush her body to do it.


The other prize is also inspired by my book. This time it’s the Victorian era romance, Dancing on Air. Sorry guys, I’m afraid it’s not antique Victorian jewellery... ah well, maybe one day. Instead I have a funky little wooden brooch of a ballerina. The brooch is new but it has a vintage vibe about it. She measures about 6cm x 3.5cm.

Cinderella meets Swan Lake in a cross-class, Victorian novel about a ballerina, an aristocrat, and the space in between them.

Lisette yearns for freedom, security and love, but none are offered on the run-down stage of The Imperial Theatre. Instead she has hard work, a tyrannical aunt, and the hope of one day becoming a prima ballerina. Dancing on the stage she catches the attention of two powerful men: Lord Gainswith and Lord De Vale.

Lord Evander Gainswith never expected to fall in love, let alone with a woman so wholly unacceptable to his family and his peers. The sinister Lord De Vale covets Lisette's youth and strength, and is willing to pay well for it. Lisette may dance roles in fairy tales and fantasies, but the real world is about to intrude, bringing with it the harsh realities of life for a young girl with dreams of rising above the demimonde.
