Giveaway: A Pirate's Passion

I didn't plan it this way but the days on which I'm giving away copies of my books happen to coincide with two days when I'm blogging here. And guess what? Today's the first day!

The Romance Studio has a standard feature they call their Book-A-Day Giveaway and my SFR novella, A Pirate's Passion, will be a giveaway on Monday, 26 April.

How do you know if you'll like the book? Well, the story is a reverse Pygmalion, where the woman -- a member of the Republic gentry -- has to teach a pirate the intricate rituals of her class so he can fleece a rich aristocrat of her money. That's the only way she can get away from him, you see. Except, the more time Tera d'Olzon spends with rakish Gil Ahn, the more she finds herself captivated by him. Just to compound matters, poor little rich girl Tera has plans of her own and they distinctly do NOT include a wanted criminal!

As much as I like both leading characters, I have to say that I also feel rather affectionate towards Kotase, Gil's grizzled second-in-command who is like a father-figure to Gil. And I find the formidable Commander Won to be charming under her terrifying exterior, and hope you do too.

There's time for you to read the entire first chapter here, before you enter the draw here. I'll also be collecting email addresses for restarting my newsletter project, so if you'd like to be included in that, tick the box. And best of luck!
