Great Books Give-Away II -- Liz Fielding

I hate giving this book away.

I loved it. But I want someone else to love it, too.

It's A Wife On Paper by the incomparable, stupendous, absolutely spectacular (can you tell I like her books?) Liz Fielding.

Liz writes terrific books. She's done 50 of them. And this is, in my estimation, one of the best.

Certainly it's one of my favorites.

What I like best about it is all the repressed emotion. Guy Dymoke has had feelings for Francesca for a long, long time. But she belonged to his brother. And Guy -- being a hero you understand -- wasn't the sort of man who poached. He bottled everything up, buttoned it down, got on with life, and survived without her.

But he didn't forget her.

And when Francesca is widowed and circumstances throw them together again, well, you can guess what happens. But it's best to let Liz tell you.
A Wife On Paper is the first of this week's give-away books. But the pile already has a head-start because Tempting by Susan Mallery (from last week) is still here as Chris, who won it, has read it already and said she would leave it for someone else to enjoy.

She's getting my own In McGillivray's Bed instead. Thanks for asking for Hugh and Sydney's story, Chris. I hope you enjoy it.

Seb's past the halfway point. It's all downhill from here, I told him. He thinks I need to make sure I know what I'm doing so we don't back slide. He might be right. But I'm not telling him so.

After all, who's the author here?

Thanks Anne. I've no doubt that I'll enjoy In McGillivray's Bed, I've yet to read one of your books that I didn't enjoy. I shall have to dig out the other two now.

I hope whoever wins Tempting will enjoy it as much as I did.


Chris.

I love the cover of "A wife on Paper" and I love Liz's books. Of course I love your books also and have read quite a few of them recently.

lad to see so many of Liz's fans here. (Waving at Crystalgb!)

Christa, I loved The Sheikh's Unsuitable Bride -- and for me that is a BIG DEAL because I am, personally, not a big fan of sheikh books. They have to be extra special to make my keeper shelf. That one of Liz's really is.

Ellen, thanks. Wife on Paper was a lovely book. I'm glad it got a good cover to go with it. I just had a look at the UK cover for it and it was quite different. I didn't like it nearly as much. The people seemed very very young -- like teenagers almost!
