THE GREAT ADVENT CALENDAR GIVEAWAY

DAY THIRTEEN

13th December

In my culture a man marries from the women his family choose for him. Someone who will be the mother of his sons. Who he will respect, honour, insh'Allah grow to love. I have kept my father waiting too long for the grandson he desires. My sisters email me daily with details of the brides my mother believes will be suitable. They have each have their favourites but so far none of them has chestnut curls, green eyes, a smile that would torment a saint....


Oh, good grief, the man is bewitched. Go choose your bride, Zahir. Shula al-Attiyah, educated, smart... Your mother knows what she's doing. By the way, I found a review for The Sheikh's Unsuitable Bride on Romance Readers at Heart, today. They said your story was "sublimely entertaining", doesn't that make you feel good? And your picture is turning up all over the blogs. Your sister is right, by the way, Adina al-Thani does have have lovely hair...

Okay, back to the real world, where we're more interested in who won Day Eleven of the draw. THE ORDINARY PRINCESS is right now on its way to Snookie in Hawaii. Of course we're into the Christmas blockage so who knows when it will arrive. The answer, by the way -- Eddie Albert was Gregory Peck's partner in deception in Roman Holiday.

Today, behind the little door, is THE BILLIONAIRE TAKES A BRIDE. The one with the totally incompetent cat-burglar, a billionaire who can be distracted from seven-denier black stockings by problems in A computer program, a friend who will get you into trouble at the drop of a hat. And dedicated to the eHarlequin Writers Circle and Hamster Auxillary. Hector, aka the Trojan Hamster, was a big hit on the eHarlequin Message Boards.

Want to win this book? Email me at liz @ lizfielding.com with Day Thirteen in the subject line, your name and address in the body of the email and the answer to this question. How many titles have I published that begin with the word "Her"!

I'm on the last scene in the wip. Tomorrow, finished or not, it has to be on my editor's desk.

Confidence is high...

Say it often enough and I might even believe it.

First question -- is it Miranda's story that is due tomorrow?

Second -- when are you going to offer books that I don't have? So far, I've only entered once! I'm waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting to enter and win ;) !

Mahalo Liz :) I'm sure you did just great with Miranda, even though she's given you such a hard time! Can't wait to read her story :)

Snookie said...

Almost forgot to tell you I've found some of you backlist books on Amazon. I'm also going to check out this used book store to see if I can find more of them :)before I order the one's I want from Amazon.

BTW, That is a great picture :)

Thanks, Cryna!

Penn, yes it's Miranda's story. I love the difficult heroines best -- they stretch you -- but the elastic is beginning to vibrate on this one! And you've read all the books in the calendar so far? You'd better email me with a list of some you haven't and I'll what's in the box!

And thanks for your confidence, Snookie. It's still dark here, but I'm having my tea and email fix before I tackle that last scene. Three hours to go...
