Be Our Valentine Giveaway

Hi Friends, We authors love our readers, and we want to celebrate Valentine’s Week by sharing a little love with you! I’ve teamed up with the five authors pictured above for a fun giveaway. We all write English historical novels and are eager to share them with you! Let me tell you a little about these authors and their books and how to enter the giveaway.

Be Our Valentine GiveawayJulie Klassen is the author of many award-winning novels set in England. She often likes to include a mystery as well as inspiration and romance in her stories. Julie has taken groups with her to England to visit some of the locations where her novels are set and share her love of England. Julie worked in publishing for sixteen years and now writes full-time from her home in Minnesota. She is giving away a copy of her latest novel, The Bridge to Belle Island.

Roseanna White is a talented author who also edits, designs book covers, and partners with her husband to run their own publishing company, WhiteFire Publishing. Her latest two series are set during WW One in England. She homeschools her two children and writes amazing historical novels. Roseanna is giving away a copy of her latest novel in the Code Breakers Series, On Wings of Devotion.

Susan Anne Mason writes Edwardian novels from her home in Ontario, Canada. Her latest stories in the Canadian Crossings Series are set in England and Canada. Susan and I both have an interest in British Home Children, and we have shared research and helped each other on our latest books. Susan will be giving away a copy of her latest novel, The Brightest of Dreams.

 

Carolyn Miller is a prolific author of Regency Romance from Australia. Her first English historical novel released in 2017 and she has released nine novels since then! I love the way Carolyn weaves such meaningful inspirational threads through her stories. Carolyn and I were roommates at the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference in 2018, and we have been fast friends since. Carolyn is giving away a copy of her latest novel, Misleading Miss Verity

Sarah Ladd’s first Regency novel, The Heiress of Winterwood, released in 2013 and she has written eight more since then. Each series has a unique English setting and characters that capture your heart. Sarah lives in Indiana with her family and her spunky Golden Retriever. She will be giving away a copy of her novel that was just released, The Thief of Lanwyn Manor. 

 

Carrie Turansky, that’s me! I recently released my 20th novel last summer, No Ocean Too Wide, and I’m working on the sequel now. I loved traveling to England twice on research trips to learn more about the people, settings, and culture I want to include in my novels. I’m a Downton Abbey fan, and that’s what inspired me to start writing novels set in that era, beginning with The Governess of Highland Hall, book one in the Edwardian Brides Series. I’ll be giving away a copy of my latest release, No Ocean Too Wide.

The Be Our Valentine Giveaway runs February 10 – 15 and is open to US and International readers. One winner will receive all six novels pictured above. To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter form below, and please share this giveaway with friends who enjoy reading English Historical Romance. Thanks so much! Remember you are loved. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Until next time ~ happy reading,

Carrie

    Valentine’s Day can be every day just by showing love in acts of service, kind words, giving a hug, etc. Books and chocolate are an awesome way to share love on Valentine’s Day!

    I work part time at an after-school learning center. Most of the teachers there are retired public/private school teachers, and we love working with just one or a few students at a time. My partner and I are giving our students Valentine’s pencils with little heart erasers for Valentine’s Day. The students love having their own pencils and erasers to use at home, and they love the attention we give them. They are so cute!

    Since my father died, I love making my Mom feel special on Valentine’s Day by giving her flowers, candy, and a special card. It means a lot to her, and to me.

    Happy Valentine’s Day! My husband and I usually go out to dinner the night before Valentine’s Day. We found out the hard way that it’s very crowded in our favorite restaurants if we go on Valentine’s Day. We’ve been married for 51 years and usually keep it low key.

    I still send Valentine’s Day cards by snail mail and I try to pick out people that don’t normally get much mail. I remember the days of stuffing valentines in the boxes at school and how exciting it was to get them!

    We keep Valentine’s Day pretty simple and avoid the madness of restaurants that day. We may get flowers or chocolate that day. We will usually eat out on the following weekend.

    What an amazing list of great authors and wonderful sounding books as well. Although my favorite genre is contemporary suspense with romance, I also thoroughly enjoy historical novels as well.

    I think we ladies have often made Valentine’s day all about us, what the man in our life can do for us, but we need to also do something for him. Since restaurants are bound to be very busy on February 14, why not make him a special dinner at home with all his favourites, of course including a special dessert. Then the next day or when it’s convenient he can take you out for a meal when the restaurants are not so busy. A lot of men really don’t like Valentine’s day, this is one way to get them to like it.

    The best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is with your words. Tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. It’s cheaper than candy and much more meaningful.

    It really depends on the couple involved, but one way is to plan a special evening together doing something you both enjoy but don’t always get to do. Whether that’s an afternoon hike, a fine dining experience, or a night at home while your kids stay the night elsewhere, if you both enjoy it and enjoy each other’s company, that’s a Valentine’s win in my book.
