Harlequin Historical Advent Calendar Hop

Hello and happy holidays!

December 17th: Today’s giveaway is inspired by my upcoming June 2013 release THE SWORD DANCER. In the book, a mysterious jade pendant leads the heroine, a rebellious sword dancer, on a journey to solve the mystery of her past. In hot pursuit is the relentless Thief-catcher Han–who suddenly finds himself falling for the one outlaw he can’t seem to hold on to. It’s a cat and mouse–or rather tiger and dragon–chase through the cities and rooftops of Fujian province with plenty of action, intrigue and, of course, romance! (Hint: this blurb may be relevant to entering the contest…)

I’m giving away a lovely dragon and phoenix stone pendant and an autographed copy of my previous book, MY FAIR CONCUBINE. The carving is divided into two halves, so the winner will actually be receiving two pendants they can share with a loved one or keep for themselves.

There are multiple ways to enter the daily giveaway as well as the grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire HD. Check out the Rafflecopter widget below to enter and good luck! (I will draw the winner on December 22. The Grand Prize winner will be announced December 24)

Don’t forget to visit the other authors on the calendar for more chances to win. Tomorrow is Blythe Gifford!

    What a beautiful pendant and such a lovely idea to share it with a loved one. Today is our 46th wedding anniversary and I will certainly cross my fingers. I would also love to read “My Fair Concubine” as I have heard so many great things about it.

    Thanks so much for participating in this fun giveaway. Your readers are all so appreciative.

    Merry Christmas!

    I noticed your website’s ranking in google’s search results is very
    low. You are loosing a lot of traffic. You need high PR backlinks to rank in top
    ten. I know – buying them is too expensive. It is better to own them.
    I know how to do that, simply google it:
