My First Book Giveaway!!!!!!!

Hi everyone! To thank you for all your support and the encouraging comments that you leave I felt that it was time for me to do a book giveaway! As most of you may know I love historical fiction and for me there's nothing better than picking up a good book and escaping to a different time!

One of my new favorite authors in the Christian fiction genre is Maggie Brendan. Her book No Place For A Lady debuted earlier this year with Book 2, The Jewel of His Heart, releasing in October. To celebrate her latest release and to show my appreciation to you, my faithful followers, I am offering a brand new copy to one lucky winner...which I will be giving away HERE during Revell's blog tour on October 18! Here's a preview of the book! Be sure to read the rules below so you can be entered to win The Jewel of His Heart!

The Jewel of His Heart (Heart of the West, Book 2)
by Maggie Brendan
Revell Publishers
Copyright 2009
333 pages
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3350-6

From the back cover:

Their future is as wide open as the Montana sky Juliana Brady is alone in an 1890s Montana mining town, with few prospects for making a living. But she is determined not to be dependent on the charity of others.

Josh McBride is trying to scrape up a living from his sheep herd while he builds his ranch. But when he discovers some rare stones on his property, he's tempted by the prospect of fast money.

When their paths cross, Juliana and Josh must make a choice--the world's riches and promises, or the eternal value of love.

If this sounds like a book that you might like to read, this could be your chance to win!
