For those who've already reviewed the great prizes and just want to cut to the chase, here's a direct link to the CONTEST ENTRY PAGE.

In the spirit of the Season of Giving Thanks, I thought I'd share a bit about my 1920's holiday romance novella, Erin's Gift.

Prohibition Era, Chicago

Caught in a raid at an illegal speakeasy, good girl Erin O'Mara loses everything: her job, her home, and her reputation. Handsome and so out of her league attorney Seth Harrison, her best friend's brother, rescues her not once, but twice. He bails her out of jail and offers her a job as nanny for his son.

Seth has no intention of falling in love after the death of his wife. But despite his better judgment, he can't help being drawn to Erin's innocence. This Christmas, letting go of the past and embracing the future may be the greatest present of all.

I'll be back again tomorrow with my regular monthly post. In the meantime, stay happy, stay healthy, stay well read.



  1. A speakeasy! Sounds like fun and a great read for Christmas. This takes place in one of my favorite times. I almost expect Jimmy Cagney to be in the story.

  2. I loved the Prohibition era drama Boardwalk Erin’s Gift is irresistible. And didn’t we have a great month? Congrats to all our winners!

  3. Congratulations to our winners. Nancy, the book sounds wonderful. A fascinating time in history.

  4. What a fun sounding book! And I really like the cover!

  5. I'm so happy for the lucky winners!
    Your cover is gorgeous and the time period is unusual and interesting.

  6. Thrilled over the response to our October Giveaway! Thanks, everyone.

  7. I love the cover! I'm assuming this story takes place in the 1920's?
