Great Book Give-Away again

Because yesterday I was posting about Roy, I didn't clutter up the post with the next book in my Great Book Give-Away. So today I'm posting two.

Along with J.R. Ward's Dark Lover in this week's bunch, there will be Donna McMeans' fun first novel, the regency romance, The Education of Mrs. Brimley.

When Emma Brimley tells one small fib to win a teaching job at the Pettibone School for Young Ladies, she is only doing it to get the job. And what difference will it make if they think she's a widow and not a single woman.

Big difference! Because the Powers That Be at Pettibone's expect that a widow will be able to prepare the Young Ladies for the "intimacies of marriage." Ooops. And when Emma meets Lord Nicholas Chambers --- who could certainly enlighten her about exactly what those intimacies entail -- what happens next is a great deal of fun.

And today's book is a novella, really, by the incomparable Nora Roberts. Spellbound is all the best of Nora's romance with a tiny bit of 'fantasy' thrown in -- the blend she does so well. I enjoyed it and, if you're a Nora fan, I imagine you will, too.

So, if you want copies of these three books, plus the two that will be coming up tomorrow and Friday, post a comment. I'd love for them to have a happy home.

If you've already commented for this week, you don't have to again to be entered in the drawing -- but I'd love to hear from you anyway. And if you have read any of these books and want to add your two cents, by all means, do so.

I saw your comment on the eharlequin 100,000 book challenge and so I hied myself over here to see what you are giving away.

What do I find? A regency and a Nora Roberts book looking for a home. I, personally, can't think of a better home then someone who will read and blog on the book challenge to help boost the numbers over there. ;-)

What a good idea, Nancy! Whoever wins will also get J.R. Ward's Dark Lover and two more books. Come back tomorrow and you can see Thursday's book.

It's so hard navigating around there and see everyone. It's so big. I did manage a few hours and found the COTW post.

What Code of the West post? My blog? Or was there another one? I find it difficult, too, Christa. Too many neighborhoods and threads to get lost in. I'm sure there's great stuff there, but I don't have enough time in my life to find it all, so I just go to the Presents thread and my own blog and, if someone points me in a particular way, I check that -- provided I can find it!

Great, Crystal (I'll mention your preference to Gunnar, but I can't guarantee which name he'll pick).

Me, too, Christa. I favorite anything I want to ever be able to find again!

Hi Anne, Noras book are always good for a night of lost sleep. I can never seem to put them down. I'm not sure which stories are in Spellbound but, I'm pretty sure I have at least one of them in with my keepers. I'll have to check out my keeper pile and see if I have those stories in there. If they are some of her recently released stories then I don't have them yet.

Mads, Spellbound is really a novella, but was released separately from any collection. It might connect to other books of hers, but I'm not sure about that. I just read the copyright page and it was originally printed in a collection called Once Upon A Castle. I hadn't read it until I bought this edition.
