Sherry Thomas Book Celebration and ARC Giveaway (Contest Closed)

BTBSince Sherry Thomas first burst onto the scene in 2008 her reputation has grown as one of the most literate and lush writers of romance.

Now, after a wait of two years (during which Sherry switched publishers), readers are about to delight in a new book by the author when Beguiling the Beauty, the first in the author’s new Fitzhugh series, is released tomorrow.  Here’s a plot description:

When the Duke of Lexington meets the mysterious Baroness von Seidlitz-Hardenberg on a transatlantic liner, he is fascinated. She’s exactly what he’s been searching for—a beautiful woman who interests and entices him. He falls hard and fast—and soon proposes marriage.

And then she disappears without a trace…

For in reality, the “baroness” is Venetia Easterbrook—a proper young widow who had her own vengeful reasons for instigating an affair with the duke. But the plan has backfired. Venetia has fallen in love with the man she despised—and there’s no telling what might happen when she is finally unmasked…

Sherry is celebrating her new release by giving AAR readers the chance to win one of five ARCs of Ravishing the Heiress, the second in the Fitzhugh series, to be released on July 3.  Want a tease?

RTHMillicent understands the terms of her arranged marriage all too well. She gets to be a Countess by marrying an impoverished Earl. And in return, the Earl Fitzhugh receives the benefit of her vast wealth, saving his family from bankruptcy. Because of her youth, they have agreed to wait eight years before consummating the marriage—and then, only to beget an heir. After which, they will lead separate lives.

It is a most sensible arrangement. Except for one little thing. Somehow Millie has fallen head over heels in love with her husband. Her husband, who has become her very best friend, but nothing more… Her husband, who plans to reunite with his childhood sweetheart, the beautiful and newly widowed Isabelle, as soon as he has honored the pact with his wife…

As the hour they truly become husband-and-wife draws near, both Millie and Fitzhugh must face the truth in their hearts. Has their pact bred only a great friendship—or has it, without either of them quite noticing, given rise to a great love?

To enter to win your ARC, simply leave a comment by Thursday, May 3rd at 11:59 p.m. Winners will be notified by email on Friday morning and will have 24 hours to respond.  If we don’t hear from you by Saturday morning, a new winner will be selected.  This giveaway is open only to readers in the U.S. and Canada and, since the contest is designed to get advance copies into the hands of readers who wouldn’t otherwise have access, if you review for another Web site or blog, please don’t enter.

Good luck to everyone. And happy reading!

  1. Just finished Beguiling the Baeuty and it is my favourite Sherry Thomas so far. I’ve liked the others I read well enough, but there was always something that didn’t quite work for me. BtB though, hit all of my buttons and I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series!

  2. Oh, how I would love to win and not have to wait until July 3rd. Sherry is so incredibly talented. I have owned all of her books from the beginning.

  3. Sherry Thomas always writes such interesting stories. Looking forward to this one!

  4. Oh I’ve been so looking forward to the release of “Ravishing the Heiress” so much! It would totally make my summer if I get this. *pray to Internet God and God of Chance*

  5. Sherry has been my favorite author since I read her 1st book, Private Arrangements. I would adore winning a copy of Ravishing the Heiress.

  6. I love Sherry Thomas’s works! I absolutely can’t wait for both books to be released especially Ravishing the Heiress! :D

  9. Sherry Thomas is amazing! thanks so much for offering this giveaway. I’m halfway through beguiling the beast now, and would be finished if it weren’t for the pesky day job.

  10. I liked Beguiling the Beauty, but in reading the characters from this book and reading the excerpt, I am looking forward to this one even more.

  11. His at Night is my favorite of Sherry Thomas’s books–the prose is beautiful–but I think just from reading the excerpt on her website that Ravishing the Heiress might take HaN’s place :)

  12. I hope that your new series does well. I have read and loved all of your books. The new one is on its way to me today. Hope I win the ARC.

  13. I love Sherry Thomas’s books. She writes so beautifully. Thanks for the ARC giveaway.

  23. Sherry Thomas is my all time favorite author!!I would love to win one of her books!!!!

  24. I’ve been a huge Sherry Thomas fan ever since the release of “Delicious”. To be honest, I’ve fallen in love with her writing, the novel’s characters, and the narratives she has skillfully created. As an owner of all her books (all of which I have thrust upon my friends to read), I can say that her stories have evoked such deep and strong emotions from me. Sherry Thomas is an extraordinarily talented author–her prose is perfect and she is able to steadily draw the reader in with every word. My personal favorite, “Not Quite A Husband” is incomparable, indescribable, and so utterly heart flutteringly beautiful. I am avidly awaiting the release of her new novel, which I will pick up first thing tomorrow at the bookstore!

    I absolutely adore her work and only hope to be lucky enough to win a chance to own an ARC of “Ravishing the Heiress”. Thank you so much All About Romance for this wonderful opportunity! -Lexi

  25. I would love to be entered in Sherry Thomas’s ARC giveaway. RAVISHING THE HEIRESS sounds great, can’t wait for this new series to be out!

  26. I live in a small-town with no bookstores and the closest one is over a hundred miles away. This may be the only way to get this book! I love Sherry Thomas books!

  27. I am so excited to read these. I have loved all of Sherry’s other works, especially Not Quite a Husband, which is one of my all-time favorites.
