*UPDATE*

I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Here is a quick sticky link to my Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge and Read-a-Thon.

  4. The first time I read a book by Lauren was in The Seduction of the Crimson Rose and since it was after The History of the Pink Carnation had been released the local bookstore no longer carried it and it wasn't available at our local library.

    It's wonderful that today we can now buy these stories in book form and many for an E-reader where years ago that wouldn't have been possible!

    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway and giving me and all your readers a great story that helped Lauren kick off her wonderful career!
