HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, MUSA!


Thanks for stopping in!

Participation on my blog is really easy. All you need to do is become one of my blog followers. Simply click the Join This Site icon on the sidebar and you're automatically entered for a chance to win a free download of my latest release MASQUERADE.


Here's a sneak preview.

Behind every mask is a fragment of truth.

Chicagoan Clancy Marshall has planned her dream vacation in Venice down to the last detail. From gondola rides to masked balls, and anything else that just happens along, she is determined to experience all pleasures. But those careful plans fly out the door when she literally falls into the arms of a masked stranger.

Vittore Ricci comes from an old Venetian family that claims two doges in their lineage. A straight-laced Count and owner of a prestigious hotel, he never does anything without serious consideration. Until a sexy American tourist falls into his arms.

To read an excerpt from MASQUERADE, please click HERE.

Be sure to join the party on October 7th at The Romance Review Forum to enter to win even more prizes.

Good luck and thanks for hopping!!

Sloane

  22. It's great that you have been to all the countries you write about it in your books. That is so lucky. I think a gondola ride could be so romantic. Makes me want to sing, Ohhhhhhh Moooooommmmmaaaaa MMMMmiiiiiaaaaaa! Like a big pizza pie. Oh wait, those probably aren't the right words.
    Congrats to Musa!
