10 Historical Romance E-Books: Erin Grace

ITEM: A pack containing 2 historical romance ebooks by Erin Grace plus a handmade bobbin-lace bookmark, made by the author. 

DETAILS:

Secrets… Everyone has secrets. Some can be ruinous. When Isabelle Barclay is left widowed at the age of twenty-five, she discovers how precarious life can be for a woman alone in the 1850s. She’s surrounded by sycophantic friends who fear her, and treacherous men determined to have her. She escapes to the wilds of the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and is rescued by an unlikely ally with her own hidden past. She didn’t expect to find a revenge plot, a treasured friendship, or a powerful attraction to a Scottish laird determined never to love. A stormy affair and a midnight duel threaten to change Isabelle’s life forever.

Serenade… Grace is plotting a course for unknown territory.

When young Grace Hathaway decides to escape from the threat of marriage to a horrible man, she takes her fate into her own hands, stowing away on the Serenade with the aim of sailing to Spain.

Captain Marcus James is haunted by a violent past he can barely remember except in the dark murky sea of his dreams. Competition with government traders has seen him take on illegal hidden goods, just to keep The Serenade and her crew afloat. The last thing he needs is undue attention from the wrong quarters, and the last thing he expects to find is Grace.

Facing stormy seas, bloody battles with pirates and a sizzling romance, will Grace and Marcus find a port of call?

CV: Escaping from her ‘real world’ of sales and marketing, Erin immerses herself in unfolding tales of dire circumstance, brave heroines, unscrupulous villains and, of course, passionate hot-blooded men. When not writing, Erin indulges in her love of home-style food by teaching her children to cook. Erin lives with her husband and three sons in the beautiful Blue Mountains of Australia.

Book Information: When a series of bizarre murders occur in London’s notorious East End, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Philemon Raft is called on to solve the crimes, but even he is powerless to explain why the victims are displayed in public places — or why the killer insists on drilling burr holes in their skulls. With little to go on except the strange red dust found on the victims’ palms, Raft must scour the city looking for an explanation. Aided only by his newly-appointed constable Freddie Crook, Raft’s investigation takes him into London’s most dark and dangerous places, where human predators wait to devour and destroy.

But Raft has an even bigger problem: a casual acquaintance is blackmailing him, and what she knows about his secrets could tear Raft’s life to pieces.

132 Signed copy of the novel Redback – Lindy Cameron – 1 of 2

Item: A signed copy of the novel Redback

Details:

Book Information: A force to be reckoned with

Tribal warlords or international warmongers; insurgents or terrorists; rebels or elected politicians; the only real differences are scale, ideology, and how close they get to the action.

While world leaders and faceless power brokers remote-control wars on a global scale, their political big-pictures translate to personal tragedy for those on the other end of the shock and awe of surgical strikes, rolling tanks and interminable detention.

And as western governments manipulate their War on Terror to stay in power, individuals the world over respond in different ways to the fear being generated; depending on whether they’re fearful of the message, or the messenger.

Being alert rather than alarmed is good advice, until people begin to wonder who they should be watching and whether they’ve been had.

Brief Bio: Lindy never grew up to be the famous scientist she’d always dreamt of being. Instead she spent time as a journalist, a traveller and a book editor before turning happily to a life of crime. She is now the author of five crime, mystery and adventure novels.

Lindy is an unashamed Xenite, Xenaphile, XWP buff – you get the drift; a Buffy, Angel, Stargate, Dr Who, Torchwood, Smallville, Battlestar Galactica fan; a Trekker; a closet warrior princess; and a philogynist, who obviously doesn’t mind being labelled. She is also a National Co-Convenor of Sisters in Crime Australia and editor of its magazine Stiletto.

Item: A signed copy of the poetry book ‘Gil Scott Heron is on Parole’

You’ll find its movement gets into your own, into your foot against the chair leg, your fingers on the keypad.

267 Signed copy of Crossing Paths: Debbie Robson

ITEM: Debbie Robson is donating a signed proof copy of her novel Crossing Paths

DETAILS:  Crossing Paths is a real life online book club, in many ways a parallel universe. It is a place where someone in the US may buy a book for a BookCrosser in Australia, without the two of them ever meeting. It is about finding books on the end of a pier, at Paddington Station, at your favourite park and unless you are on the site you don’t know these books are there. People walk past them oblivious; some pick them up briefly but then leave them behind. BookCrossers know to catch these books to find out where they have been, read them and then release them.
 

At BookCrossing books are registered and released with an individual tracking number. A good many drop off the radar and then turn up years later at the strangest of places. In Crossing Paths the main character Jane drops off the radar – for the other characters who are worried about her the clues to where she might be are on her BookCrossing bookshelf. Russell Dark, a book store owner and Jonathan Fairlight, a new age writer, begin to track her through the books she leaves behind. Within these pages eight people who cross paths with Jane Townsend will have their lives changed forever.
