I won the Susanna Ives drawing from #RWA15!

Susanna Ives prize package  I received a surprise package from the delightful Susanna Ives! I’m an absolute addict when it comes to historical novels, so I had to sign up for her newsletter at the Romance Writers of America 2015 national convention. Lo and behold, I won the drawing!

She wrote a delightful personal note on absolutely adorable stationary tucked into the autographed book and included an adorable charm which she says she made herself. Isn’t it perfect accompaniment to the book? I know I’m eager to curl up with the “deliciously wicked Viscount Dashiell” and see how he saves Vivienne from blackmail. I suspect I’ll be one-clicking her next Wicked novel “Wicked My Love” the minute I’m done. Excerpts are available on her website SusannaIves.com and the signup for her newsletter is right there.

So click on through and prepare to indulge yourself with these or “Rakes and Radishes”, her 2010 Romance Reviews Best Book Nominee from another publisher. I can see I’ll get nothing done until I’ve found a quiet spot to read. Thank you, Susanna!

The Romance Dish is even better in person!

Her recommendations and insightful posts are a regular read for me, so imagine my joy at discovering the identity of my witty, wonderful breakfast companion! Don’t you love it when someone turns out even better in person than on the page?
