I'm in an escapism mood...take me away from this cold February atmosphere. It was -40 degrees Celsius this morning here in Montreal. That's -40 degrees Fahrenheit! So to warm things up a little I decided to host a giveaway of my own book.

This one was a free Kindle purchase. Who could resist a Gothic romance?
Dark Prince (Dark Gothic Book 3) by Eve Silver
All books in the Dark Gothic Series are stand alone stories that can be read in any order.
Innkeeper’s daughter Jane Heatherington is sold into indentured servitude to cover her father’s debts, sold to Aidan Warrick, a man whose handsome face and form mock the rumors that skulk in his shadow, rumors that paint him a smuggler, a pirate…and worse.
On the rainswept Cornish coast, Aidan’s business is carried out in the darkest hours of moonless nights, his secrets are many, and death follows in his wake. Isolated and alone, Jane's only companion is the man she dare not trust, the man who looks at her with heated desire that she both fears and craves.
As she finds herself ensnared in the twisted schemes carried out within the walls of Aidan’s looming estate, Jane must decide if Aidan Warrick is the dark prince of her dreams or a monster preying on the innocent…
I bought this one for $2.00. I can't resist time travel tales:
Timebound by Rysa Walker
2013 Winner — Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award — Grand Prize and Young Adult Fiction Winner
When Kate Pierce-Keller’s grandmother gives her a strange blue medallion and speaks of time travel, sixteen-year-old Kate assumes the old woman is delusional. But it all becomes horrifyingly real when a murder in the past destroys the foundation of Kate’s present-day life. Suddenly, that medallion is the only thing protecting Kate from blinking out of existence.
Kate learns that the 1893 killing is part of something much more sinister, and her genetic ability to time travel makes Kate the only one who can fix the future. Risking everything, she travels back in time to the Chicago World’s Fair to try to prevent the murder and the chain of events that follows.
Changing the timeline comes with a personal cost—if Kate succeeds, the boy she loves will have no memory of her existence. And regardless of her motives, does Kate have the right to manipulate the fate of the entire world?
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

Very cold! I got Dark Prince too. I like the looks of Timebound and found it in my Kindle library. :-) Happy Reading!ReplyDelete
Love the cover of Banished. Not big on gothic romance but probably read a few unknowingly!!ReplyDelete
I'm not a romance fan so all your books are new to me. I hope you enjoy reading them.ReplyDelete

We've also had the frigid weather but by Friday we'll be in the 50s F. February thaw I guess. Have a good week, Laura!ReplyDelete

New to me but I also like time travel now! I didn't like it till I started on Susanna Kearsley!ReplyDelete
Oh yeah, Susanna Kearsley's books are a treasure in that genre. I love them too!Delete
Timebound looks good, I like time travel books as well, and it seems like I saw a good review of that somewhere. Hope it warms up there, it's been cold here too (although not THAT cold). :)ReplyDelete
