I'm joining Splash Into Summer giveaway hop, hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Page Turners Blog. I'm giving away two new paperbacks (there will be one winner for each, two winners total). I'm also trying Rafflecopter for the first time, so let me know if something doesn't work right. :)
Prize #1 - classics, medieval
The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
"The Canterbury Tales", compiled in the late fourteenth century, is an incisive portrait, infused with Chaucer's wry wit and vibrant, poetical language. He evokes a spectrum of colourful characters, from the bawdy Wife of Bath to the gallant Knight, the fastidious Prioress and the burly, drunken Miller. As they wend their way from Southwark to Canterbury, tales are told to pass the time, and the stories are as diverse as the narrators, encompassing themes such as adultery, revenge, courtly love, lechery, avarice and penitence. As humorous today as when it was written over six centuries ago, "The Canterbury Tales" remains one of the most popular and enjoyable of the classic works of literature.
Prize #2 - paranormal, romance
Zachariah was a true craftsman. It was the passion to reach true perfection that drove him to work long after he should have retired. His work imbued him with a life that few could imagine. With the aid of the spirit of his long dead wife each piece that was commissioned not only restored years to Zachariah's life but imbedded each piece with a special mysticism. Whether the enchantment was one that would enhance the quality of life, or bring about an erotic affair for someone that had been alone too long, or bring a curse upon the head of an evil man no one knew but the jewel itself. Now as a new piece of jewelry has just been commissioned, jealousy has flared and an evil as old as time itself is straining against its chains to be unleashed to wreak havoc upon the latest client, an innocent young girl that has become dear to Zachariah's heart. Several masterpieces of jewelry, each bearing the maker's mark of the crimson Z... Five stories of romance, each written by a different Black Velvet Seductions' author... All told from the lips of an old jeweler who is falling in love with a girl way too young for him. Will the jewelry bring the wearer love or will it be a curse releasing unthinkable evil on unsuspecting lovers?
