Author Spotlight & Giveaway: Vicky Dreiling!


Oh so many treats for yall today! 

Earlier this summer I went to a fantastic reading get together up in Ohio hosted by Lori Foster. When I got home I had a huge list of new authors I wanted to check out and Vicky Dreiling was one of them. I actually remember seeing her at the event (even though I don't think I managed to say hi at the time) and she stuck in my mind because she was just all smiles and looked like such a nice lady. And it turns out she really is! She's one of the sweetest authors I've come across and really adores her fans. 

So, first up for yall today. If you haven't checked out Vicky's books now's the perfect time! Her first book How to Marry a Duke just had it's price dropped to $2.99 which is an absolute steal! Purchase links are down below. They're good until Oct 1, 2012 so make sure you pick up your copy soon :) 

Then...there's a great excerpt from How to Marry a Duke linked riiight below this and a little bit on her newest series the Sinful Scoundrels too. I read the introduction to the series earlier this month and loved it. Can't wait for the first book to come out next year :)

Aaannnnd finally....there's a lovely swag/ebook giveaway at the very bottom! Don't forget to enter and leave a little note for Vicky in case she stops by :)

HOW TO MARRY A DUKE (click here for an excerpt!)

Tristan, the Duke of Shelbourne is a man with a mission: find a wife he can tolerate as long as they both shall live. No love is necessary—nor desired. But how to choose amid a dizzying array of wealthy-yet-witless candidates? Hire London’s infamously prim and proper matchmaker. Then pretend she’s not the most captivating woman he’s ever met...

Helping a devilish Duke create a contest to pick his perfect mate is the kind of challenge Tessa Mansfield relishes. Her methods may be scandalous, but she’s determined to find the notorious bachelor more than a wife—she’ll bring him true love. Yet when Tessa watches the women vie for the Duke’s affections, she longs to win his heart herself. And after a stolen kiss confirms Tristan’s desire, Tessa knows she has broken a matchmaker’s number one rule: never fall in love with the groom.

Vicky has a new series coming out in 2013! Check out her introductory novella to the series...


A SEASON FOR SIN (click here for my review)

Introducing the Sinful Scoundrels...

The Earl of Bellingham is nothing is not a creature of habit: money, meals, and mistresses must be strictly managed if a man is to have a moment's peace. It's a system that works splendidly for him--until now. With his oldest and dearest friends succumbing, one by one, to wedded bliss, Bell is now restless and a trifle lonely. Enter the Sinful Scoundrels--Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, and Harry Norcliffe, Viscount Evermore--who drag him back into society and draw his rakish eye to the ton's new beautiful young widow. Bell isn't after a wife, but a challenge. And Laura Davenport should fit the bill quite nicely...

    1. Thanks Carin! It was an interesting read. I got to the end and was so involved in the story that when it suddenly ended on a bit of a cliff hanger I totally did a "Ahhhh! What?! Noooo!" I'm really looking forward to the series and getting to see what happens next but the wait to find out is killing me :) Patience is so not one of my virtues ;)
