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!

    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
