Reader's Choice - Historical


GIVEAWAY

What is Reader's Choice?
 
It's something I do from time to time when my TBR pile has been all read up and I haven't been able to replenish my supply. This month my book shopping spree was thwarted by horrid weather -- freezing rain, blizzards, frigid temperatures. So I'm taking the opportunity to let you help me compile  my 'must buy' list and the chance at winning one of the books you recommend. I'm looking for suggestions in the historical romance genre -- Christian fiction only please. You can offer three suggestions but they need to be made in three separate posts.  
 
How does it work?

 Today it's Historical Romance Giveaway day. To be entered in the draw just leave a comment below, including the title of the book in the Historical Romance genre -- Christian Fiction only please -- that you would like to win.  Important: select only books with an March 2014 or earlier release date. If your name is drawn, I'll send you a copy of that book. Easy Peasy, right? And because I know how hard it is to pick only one book, you can enter this draw three different times with a different title each time. Just make sure each entry is in a different comment.

Please remember to include your email, using AT and DOT instead of @ and . in the address to protect yourself from spammers. Draw will be held and winner announced on Sunday March 9 2014 2013. Offer open to international readers.

Looking forward to seeing what's on everybody's wishlists!

  11. Marriage By Arrangement - Anne Greene (I'm reading this right now!)
    This is the second in a series, really great writing I think, but not someone you hear to much about in the Christian market.
