I won a contest- woohoo! <happy dance> It doesn’t happen often. Years ago, I won a pair of NYD Jeans (Not Your Daughter’s Jeans) from an Oprah Winfrey Contest online. There must have been 100 prizes and I dutifully filled out every single form, even for the most obscure- but the expensive pair of jeans came as a surprise. I also once won a free lipstick from Parenting magazine as well. Now if only I would hit the lottery….
However, recently romance author Elisabeth Hobbes hosted a book giveaway on her website. Comment on her post of who would make the perfect hero and get the chance to win her new novel, a Harlequin Historical: Falling for Her Captor. I did and was shocked when the author contacted me to say I won her book. Woo hoo! Happy dance! I love to read, have a good excuse to do a happy dance, love romance and still participate in our family Daily Read, so this contest win was fantastic. The book arrived from the U.K. yesterday- personally inscribed by Elisabeth Hobbes herself.
