Giveaway! The Lady's Slipper by Deborah Swift

I have one brand new copy of Deborah Swift's intriguing novel, The Lady's Slipper (my review), up for grabs. It is not often I am able to offer an international giveaway, so I am pleased to announce that this will indeed be an international drawing!

Since this giveaway will be apart of the "Follower Love Giveaway Hop", hosted by Kathy @ I am a Reader not a Writer, the giveaway guidelines are a bit different than my normal entry procedure, so make sure you take a look at them.

Synopsis (From the Publisher):
"1660. King Charles II has returned from exile, but memories of the English Civil War still rankle. There are old scores to settle, and religious differences threaten to overturn a fragile peace. When Alice Ibbetson discovers a rare orchid, the Lady’s Slipper, growing in a wood belonging to Richard Wheeler, she is captivated by its beauty— though Wheeler, a Quaker, is determined to keep the flower where God intended it to grow. Knowing that the orchid is the last of its kind, she steals the flower, little dreaming that her seemingly simple act will set off a chain of events that will lead to murder and exile, and change her life forever…"

Giveaway Guidelines:

~6 possible entries~

  • +1 entry for posting a comment with your e-mail and being a follower via Google Friend Connect (no comment with e-mail and follow via GFC = no entry)
  • + 3 entries for adding a link to this giveaway on the sidebar of your blog. (please post link with your comment)
  • + 2 entries for tweeting about this giveaway (please post link with your comment)
