Giveaway - Illicit Love

Today I am bringing you an incredible giveaway.

As you may or may not know, last November I attended The Festival of Romance.
During the royal baby shower, I met author Jane Lark who very generously gave me some wonderful bookish goodies to giveaway to one lucky person.

You can win:
A rare 1st edition copy of Illicit Love

Trapped under the reign of a cruel keeper, Ellen Harding longs to be free. Under his oppression, her soul and conscience have died while her body lives on, fulfilling his dissolute desires. She is empty-a vessel-deaf to the voice of morality and blind to shame. When her eyes are drawn to a beautiful man for no other reason than his looks, she imagines what it would be like to escape her chains for a night by giving her body to him.
Edward is restless, lonely, and a little angry with his lot in life-it is his only excuse for being drawn to another man's mistress. The woman's dark hair and pale eyes are striking, and he cannot take his gaze off her while she watches him over the top of a fan with an illicit intent in her eyes.
Once he's known her, he cannot forget her, and once he's seen the evidence of her supposed benefactor's brutality, he wants to help her.
But how can he when she will not run any more than she will speak of her past? When a desperate Ellen finally relents and shocks Edward from his sleep, he doesn't hesitate, he helps her flee. He just doesn't know he's running headlong into the secrets of her past.

A tote bag and mug, which both have the gorgeous 'Illicit Love' cover on them!

  1. Romance is such an important aspect of love. Without it, you might question the reality of it, or the sincerity. It doesn't have to be chocolates and flowers - it can be a simple gesture like being covered with a blanket when you're sleeping on the sofa! Romance is something that comes from the heart and confirms love.

  2. For me, romance is the every day things that we sometimes take for granted. The picking up of your favourite snack, or the cooking of your favourite meal. The knowledge of how the other person takes their tea or that extra tight cuddle when you are feeling cold. I don't think romance is going the extra mile, it's making all the little things, the little steps count for something :) x x

  3. Romance is me & my hubby. My only boyfriend, met him at 17 I'm now 48!!! Stuck together through ups & downs. Real life. Thank you for the chance if the give-away.

  4. Romance is like the air we breathe! Can't live without it. Yes, I am that romantic;) Thanks for the great giveaway lovely XX

  5. Well im a stranger to romance lol but to me its making them little efforts to make someone feel loved and special :) x

  6. Romance to me is when you have someone who accepts you completely. Someone who gives you butterflies everyday. X

    I'm not sure anymore I have six month old twins and the concept of romance has left the house in exchange for nappies and sleepless nights. I'd love to be reminded with a good book!

  8. One day I hope to find out, but until then I love reading about it in books
