So, let me first confirm that YES....you have reached Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers. Why am I confirming that? Well, you might have been confused upon seeing the title of this post and the book featured within. Don't worry, I anticipated that and have wonderful comebacks all ready to go.
But I DID anticipate that reaction.
You see, news of this contest came to me from the fab folks over at Blue Dot Literary (Thanks, Serena!) and although the book is out of my usual genre, the main character is a librarian on a time travel "adventure" and...well frankly, what girl couldn't use a new pair of shoes? (...or more to read if this genre is your cake?)
Point made...moving forward.
So...what book is throwing this celebration?
What exactly is it you have a chance to win?
So many questions!
Here's the scoop...
Two years after losing her husband, overworked librarian Panna Kennedy battles to distract herself from crushing grief, while she wrestles with yet another library budget cut. During a routine search within the library’s lower levels, Panna opens an obscure, pad-locked door and finds herself transported to the magnificent, book-filled quarters of a handsome, eighteenth-century Englishman. She soon recognizes the man as Colonel John Bridgewater, the historic English war hero whose larger-than-life statue loomed over her desk.However, the life of the dashing Bridgewater is not at all what she imagined. He’s under house arrest for betraying England, and now looks upon her—a beautiful and unexpected half-dressed visitor—as a possible spy. Despite bad first impressions (on both sides), Bridgewater nonetheless warms to Panna, and pulls her into his escape—while both their hearts pull the other headlong into their soul-stirring secrets.Very quickly Panna is thrown into a whirlwind of high-stakes intrigue that sweeps her from Hadrian's Wall to a forbidding stone castle in Scotland. And somewhere in the outland, Panna must decide if her loyalties lie with her dead husband, or with the man whose life now depends on her.
Curious...I'll grant you that...but HERE's the piece de resistance...
