The Fall into Winter Romance Giveaway Hop is now over and the winner of my ebook giveaway has been contacted. Congratulations to Juli H!
We all have a favorite season – for me that season is fall. The moment temperatures start to drop in September my energy increases. And when it’s cool enough that there’s a slight nip in the air and we need to start wearing sweaters – heaven! I think part of it may be due to the fact that I’ve always loved school. Growing up, September heralded a new school year and with it new opportunities. Some people like to make New Year’s resolutions, but I’ve always been partial to reassessing my goals in the fall.
I have to be careful when writing that I don’t set all my books during the fall. Fortunately, when writing historical romances there’s plenty of opportunity to set stories during the Season in spring. I have yet to set a story during the summer or the winter, though.
Do you have a favorite season? Please share what you love about it if you do.
Grand Prize for the blog hop – a $50 Amazon.com gift certificate.
In addition, I will be giving away an ebook (in your format of choice) of my novel Loving the Marquess.

If you’ve signed up for my new release mailing list or follow me on Facebook, you already know that I’m currently doing two giveaways. One person signed up for my mailing list and one person who likes my Facebook author page will each win a $25 gift card to their choice of Amazon, B&N or Kobo.
Lady Hathaway’s Indecent Proposal had a very successful launch, reaching as high as #354 in the entire Amazon Kindle store! It’s still doing very well, as is Loving the Marquess. These giveaways are my way of saying thank you to everyone who has purchased one of my books.
The number of likes on my Facebook page is much less than the number of people who have signed up for my mailing list, so you have a better chance of winning if you like me on Facebook and look under the “giveaway” tab to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway. If you’re genuinely interested in learning about my new releases, though, you’ll want to sign up for my mailing list as well. If you do, you’ll receive a newsletter as soon as Beguiling the Earl is available. Facebook is a great venue for interacting, but I know it doesn’t always display an author’s posts to all their followers.
The contests end at midnight tomorrow, Friday August 23. Good luck!
Using random.org to choose a number between 1 and 38 (the number of lovely people who commented on my blog hop post), the winner of a signed paperback copy of Loving the Marquess is:

Earlier this week I released my latest book, Lady Hathaway’s Indecent Proposal. At its heart, this is a story about two people who’d had a romance in the past but been separated. Now, twelve years later, Miranda – Lady Hathaway – has been recently widowed and she conceives a desperate plan that will allow her to spend a few nights in the bed of the man she had to give up all those years before.
How about you? Do you enjoy reading reunion stories? And if so, do you have any favorites? I am a big fan of reunion stories. I’m also a big fan of steamy historical romances. Lady Hathaway’s Indecent Proposal is both of those things.
Grand Prizes - The organizers of this blog hop have two grand prizes.
#1 – A Kindle Fire.
#2 – A $50 Amazon.com gift certificate.
In addition, I will be giving away a signed paperback copy of my novel Loving the Marquess.

Lady Hathaway’s Indecent Proposal is almost done and I’ll be sending it off to my editor soon. I just need to add an epilogue. I’ve been finding it difficult to find time to work on it, though, because I’ve also been working on Beguiling the Earl, the next book in my Landing a Lord series.
I’ve decided to share the first chapter of Lady Hathaway on my Facebook page. This is close to the final version, but please note that it might change after my editor looks at it. There’s an adult advisory on this first chapter (but no full love scene at this point.)
You can find the excerpt on my Facebook page here. I hope you enjoy it!
My next book, Lady Hathaway’s Indecent Proposal, is almost ready to be sent to the editor. I’m very excited about this story, which is a novella approximately 20,000 words long (I’ll be writing the epilogue today so word count isn’t final yet.)
I do, however, have the cover and final blurb ready and thought I’d share that with everyone today. You can click on the cover to see a larger version.
Lady Hathaway’s Indecent Proposal is book one in the two-book Hathaway Heirs series.
Twelve years have passed since Miranda Hathaway ended her courtship with Andrew Osborne and married the older, but much wealthier Viscount Hathaway. It is only one week after her husband’s death and Miranda cannot ignore the temptation to have a taste of what she threw away all those years ago when she followed her parents’ wishes. But to entice the man she never stopped loving, she will have to act quickly.
Now the Earl of Sanderson, Andrew is no longer the same man who once believed in love. When Miranda asks him to help her conceive a child—one that she means to pass off as the next Hathaway heir—he sees her deceit as proof that she is not the same woman he once knew. However, he cannot ignore the temptation to finally have her in his bed.
Miranda knows she is infertile, but her deception gives her three weeks with Andrew. He plans to use that time to finally consign Miranda Hathaway to the past, while she hopes to build memories that will need to last her a lifetime.
Some of you have asked if I will be releasing my titles in paperback … well, I’m happy to announce that Loving the Marquess will soon be available in trade paperback! It’s available now directly from Createspace (here) and should soon be at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
I know that many people prefer to “like” an author’s page rather then friend them. With that in mind, I have finally set up my own Facebook page. You can find it at Suzanna Medeiros – Author. As a thank you to everyone who joins the page, I will be giving away a proof copy of Loving the Marquess. To enter, simply like my author page and look under the “Giveaway” tab for the entry form. The contest will be open until midnight on Thursday March 28.
