Thank you for visiting my blog on the Bookhounds’ Midwinter’s Eve Giveaway Hop.
I’m thrilled to be giving away this beautiful silk scarf by the British Museum:
A silk scarf printed with a design of Japanese Iris, a type of flower native to Japan.
For centuries, the flower has been a source of inspiration for Japanese writers, artists and craftsman. For example the British Museum holds a print by the Japanese artist Meisho Edo hyakkei called ‘Flowering Irises at Horikiri’, 1857 – a beautiful artwork showing stalks and leaves of irises.
Wherever you are in the world, feel free to enter my giveaway. I am so looking forward to sending this lovely scarf to the winner.
This is a blog hop, so ‘hop’ along now for your chance to win more fantastic prizes.

Are authors allowed to have favourite books of their own? If so, I think my second novel, The Echoes of Love, is a strong contender for the top spot.
The Sun newspaper called The Echoes of Love ‘an epic love story that is beautifully told’. It’s unfolds at the turn of the new millennium, and is set in the romantic and mysterious city of Venice and the beautiful landscape of Tuscany: a tale of a lost love and betrayal, unbleached passion and learning to love again – and a terrible truth that will change the lives of two strangers forever.
Here is the trailer:
And here is the synopsis:
Venetia Aston-Montagu has escaped to Italy’s most captivating city to work in her godmother’s architectural practice, putting a lost love behind her. For the past ten years she has built a fortress around her heart, only to find the walls tumbling down one night of the carnival when she is rescued from masked assailants by an enigmatic stranger, Paolo Barone.
Drawn to the powerfully seductive Paolo, despite warnings of his Don Juan reputation and rumours that he keeps a mistress, Venetia can’t help being caught up in the smouldering passion that ignites between them.
When she finds herself assigned to a project at his magnificent home deep in the Tuscan countryside, Venetia must not only contend with a beautiful young rival, but also come face to face with the dark shadows of Paolo’s past that threaten to come between them.
Can Venetia trust that love will triumph, even over her own demons? Or will Paolo’s carefully guarded, devastating secret tear them apart forever?

Today I am delighted to formally launch my new novel, Legacy, the third and final book in the Andalucian Nights trilogy:
A troubled young journalist finds her loyalties tested when love and desire unearth dark secrets from the past.
Spring, 2010. When Luna Ward, a science journalist from New York, travels halfway across the world to work undercover at an alternative health clinic in Cadiz, her ordered life is thrown into turmoil.
The doctor she is to investigate, the controversial Rodrigo Rueda de Calderon, is not what she expected. With his wild gypsy looks and devilish sense of humour, he is intent upon drawing her to him. But how can she surrender to a passion that threatens all reason; and how could he ever learn to trust her when he discovers her true identity? Then Luna finds that Ruy is carrying a corrosive secret of his own…
Luna’s native Spanish blood begins to fire in this land of exotic legends, flamboyant gypsies and seductive flamenco guitars, as dazzling Cadiz weaves its own magic on her heart. Can Luna and Ruy’s love survive their families’ legacy of feuding and tragedy, and rise like the phoenix from the ashes of the past?
Legacy is a story of truth, dreams and desire. But in a world of secrets you need to be careful what you wish for…
The book is out now in ebook format, and for preorder in paperback (releasing at the end of August):
To celebrate the release of Legacy, I’m giving away a summer bag by one of my favourite designers, Karl Lagerfeld. Entry is open to all via Rafflecopter. Good luck!
