Giving Away Ten Copies of Love Finds You in Nazareth, Pennsylvania

Love Finds You in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, my latest historical romance novel, released this month. To celebrate, I'll be giving away ten copies in November.

To enter the contest, please leave a brief comment below with your email address. I will draw names on November 9th and email the winners.

Here's more info about the story:

Christian and Susanna Boehler had never spoken when they were chosen by lot to marry in a Moravian community in Germany. But in 1754, they travel to Pennsylvania with a dozen other newly married couples to establish the settlement of Nazareth and share their faith with the surrounding Indian nations. Just as Susanna’s heart begins to warm toward her husband, she learns that he had asked to marry another woman—and that he loves her still.

As war rages between the British and French Indians and their young marriage faces hardship, will Susanna and Christian remain strangers in marriage, or will their hearts finally be united in love?

Thanks for celebrating with me!
