And, just because I do love winners, I'm giving away a second copy of Iron to the first person who writes in and correctly names that drum!!
Um, I don't mean the drum itself, I'm asking what that type of drum is called.
And speaking of Iron...
Even though it was mysteriously missing from the polls this morning, my book, Iron, is also up for book of the week at Whipped Cream/Long and Short Reviews.
Personally, I blame the pixies for all the confusion.
But if anyone has not yet voted for one of the many other fine books that are up there this week and would be so inclined to cast your vote its way, I'd be hugely and eternally grateful.
Here's the link to the poll:
And here's what Holly had to say about it in her review:
"Iron is a tale of love lost, passion denied, and a reawakening of desire long buried.
I love that as the story goes on, Aislinn convinces Gavin that anything agreed upon in their bed is acceptable, as long as they both agree. And I also loved that Gavin came to appreciate Aislinn for herself, needing her to be his wife as herself. The sex is sizzling, and more so because of the time setting. There are tears and laughter here, and the happy ever after is an unusual one.
If you enjoy magic and history, this is the book for you."
