When A Lady Dares by Tara Kingston

They must
tear down their defenses and learn to trust their hearts.


WHEN A LADY DARES
Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service #2
Tara Kingston
Released May 15, 2017
Entangled Select Historical

Sophie Atherton knows a liar when she sees one. Perhaps because she’s so skilled at deception herself. Searching for clues to a string of mysterious deaths, the secret operative for the Crown has connived her way into a phony medium’s confidence. When a dashing archaeologist seeks out the charlatan’s services, Sophie suspects he’s after more than a long-lost heirloom. Their electric attraction storms her defenses, but loving the rakish scholar would threaten her investigation and the life she’s crafted.

Gavin Stanwyck is a man on a mission. Masquerading as a treasure hunter to trap the spiritualist, he’s drawn to the medium’s enigmatic assistant. As treacherous forces close in, passion awakens his hardened heart—he’ll protect Sophie at all costs, but he cannot give her his love. Uniting to survive a sinister plot, they must tear down their defenses and learn to trust their hearts.

 
Award-winning
and Amazon.com best-selling author Tara Kingston writes historical
romance laced with intrigue, danger, and adventures of the heart. A Southern
belle-out-of-water in a quaint Pennsylvania town, she lives with her real-life
hero and a pair of deceptively innocent-looking cats in a cozy Victorian. A
former librarian whose love of reading is evident in her popping-at-the-seams
bookcases, she’s thankful for the invention of digital books, thereby
eliminating the need for yet another set of shelves. When she’s not writing,
reading, or burning dinner, Tara enjoys movie nights, cycling, hiking, DIY
projects, and cheering on her favorite football team.

GRAND PRIZE: We are giving away an ereader ($200 value). Only those visitors who visit EACH and EVERY stop are eligible for the grand prize. So, keep hopping and comment at every stop. 

 

In honor of Spring, here are some of my favorite gardening tips: 

1. To remove the salt deposits that form on clay pots, combine equal parts white vinegar, rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle. Apply the mixture to the pot and scrub with a plastic brush. Let the pot dry before you plant anything in it.

2. To prevent accumulating dirt under your fingernails while you work in the garden, draw your fingernails across a bar of soap and you’ll effectively seal the undersides of your nails so dirt can’t collect beneath them. Then, after you’ve finished in the garden, use a nailbrush to remove the soap and your nails will be sparkling clean.

3. To prevent the line on your string trimmer from jamming or breaking, treat with a spray vegetable oil before installing it in the trimmer.

4. Turn a long-handled tool into a measuring stick! Lay a long-handled garden tool on the ground, and next to it place a tape measure. Using a permanent marker, write inch and foot marks on the handle. When you need to space plants a certain distance apart (from just an inch to several feet) you’ll already have a measuring device in your hand.

I am also giving away a $5 Amazon gift card and a digital copy of Pete’s Mighty Purty Privies. Follow me on Amazon by clicking the outhouse below! Then leave a comment letting me know one book you saw on that page!

Luck of the Irish $250 Giveaway

March 17th to 31st

Enter for your chance to win a $250 Amazon Gift Code or $250 in Paypal Cash!!  

Thanks to this awesome group of bloggers and authors who have joined with me to bring you one fabulous prize!!

So what images come to mind when you think of Ireland? I have visited twice and cannot wait for my next trip. It has become my favorite destination: breathtaking scenery, mystical legends, friendly and warm people and awesome drinks and food.

For a chance to win an ebook copy of “Celtic Tales: Fairy Tales and Stories of Enchantment from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales” please leave a comment and tell us what Irish images come to mind when you think of the Emerald Isle.

 

The traditional stories of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales transport us to the fantastical world of Celtic folklore. Translated and transcribed by folklorists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the 16 stories in this compilation conjure forgotten realms and rare magical creatures in vivid prose. These timeless tales brim with wit and magic, and each one is brought to life with elegant silhouette art by Kate Forrester in this special illustrated edition.

Here are a few photos from my last trip that make me think of Ireland! First off: A Guinness tour and a typical Irish pub meal.

  

The villages (this one is Malahide, just outside Dublin) and the lively pub sessions and discussions!

  

Kilmainham Gaol (& politics), stone walls and sheep!

  

Castles and Cong ( the village of the Quiet Man). Yes, we had a Guinness at the pub where they took a break during the day-long fist fight between Sean (John Wayne) and Mary Kate’s brother. 

  

And of course Galway Bay and the Burren. The bay was our morning coffee scenery. This is a pic from our patio in 2015.

   

May I leave you with two of my favorite Irish tunes. The first is Galway Bay, the second is Little Bit O’ Heaven, telling how the faeries and angels made Ireland. Enjoy the scenery and the brogue!
