Karen Ranney Giveaway!

When readers think of emotional reads, Karen Ranney’s name is often mentioned. She even did a piece here at AAR on the two-hanky read. Karen Ranney’s latest book, A Scotsman in Love, has just been released by Avon. If you’d like a chance to win it, along with a copy of The Devil Wears Tartan and signed bookplates, just comment to this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, May 7, 2009. A few caveats: This contest is open only to U.S. residents. Also, this contest is designed to get books into the hands of readers who would not otherwise have them, so if you review for another website and have access to the ARCs or finished books through that site, please don’t enter. We can’t fully police this, so use the honor system.

Now, let’s get commenting!
