Adored Release Party and Giveaway

Adored is released and to celebrate I’m holding a special giveaway. All you need to do to enter is tell me your pet peeve about pregnancy. It can be anything: maybe pregnant people annoy you; maybe when you’re pregnant other people annoy you; maybe your pet peeve is that’s it’s impossible to find real honest-to-goodness strawberry shortcake at 1 a.m. during a blizzard in January. Go to town.

Why pregnancy? Because in this het romance—a sequel to Captive Heart and Dangerous Beauty—the heroine, the Uttoran princess Adora, is eight months with child. The villain who got her that way is no longer in the picture—that’s the good news—but now she’s wishing for a bit of romance in her life. Can a pregnant princess find love?

You can weigh in on that question too, if you want to. J  As with all books in the Uttor series, this one can be read as a standalone.

My sweet old poodle and I will draw a winner this coming Wednesday, October 28 from the comments to receive an ebook copy of Adored.

Here’s ye olde blurb:

It takes true strength to overcome tragedy and survive.

Adora Leonnte, sister to the Uttoran emperor, endured a year trapped in a nightmarish forced marriage to a Sebboyan prince driven by a sinister prophecy to take her against her will. The war that followed destroyed the small country, but she emerges unbroken…if not unscathed. Safe again in Uttor, she vows to put the horrors she faced behind her and once again become the fearless young woman she was before her abduction.

As fate would have it, her hated kidnapper left her carrying his child, and that is a condition even she cannot wish away. Adora’s enduring hope for romance fades until a blue-eyed, self-possessed foreigner walks back into her life and reawakens feelings promising the erotic delights of which she’s always dreamed.

Vallmer Berringen, the handsome and devout prince of a country allied with conquered Sebboy, has come to Uttor for two reasons: to secure the treaty that will give his country a much needed alliance, and to fulfill his father’s orders to use the occasion to find a suitable bride. Captivated by Adora’s intelligence and courage, Vallmer is torn by the fact she is both pregnant and pagan. Her infamous reputation taints Adora, a woman that a man of his position and faith should never be tempted to woo.

Can he reconcile his vision for his country with his passion for a woman whose spirit sets his blood on fire—but for whom kingdoms have gone to war?

  2. My pet peeve about pregnancy is that for the last 25 years, or so, I kept hearing, "So when are you going to settle down and get pregnant?". It's never gonna happen. Never has, never will.

    1. What is it with the assumption every woman should, can, or wants to be pregnant? You'd think by now people would just bypass that one for "Hey! How are YOU doing?" Thanks for stopping in!

    1. You're right. People think they're being cute, but it's really rude to just walk up to anyone and touch them like that. Thank you for joining in the party!

  4. I've never experienced it. I really don't have a pet peeve about it, other than wishing certain people took it more seriously about bringing a child into the world.

    1. It's a funny thing. Sometimes it just happens. But it shouldn't happen to people who simply haven't thought about "hey, sex is nature trying to make babies." Because nature has a way of doing just that, so people should always think about that consequence.
