Winner of Bride Bargain and new book giveaway: Daughter of Liberty!

And the winner of The Bride Bargain is.... Mindy!!! Thanks to all who entered!

This week's book giveaway is Daughter of Liberty by J.M. Hochestetler. This is book 1 in The American Patriot series. I've read book 3 and it was incredible!!
Here's the back cover blurb

It's Eastertide, April 1775, and in Boston, circumstances are escalating toward a fateful confrontation between the British Regulars and the Sons of Liberty. Caught in the rift between Whig and Tory, Elizabeth Howard is torn between her love for her prominent parents, who have strong ties with the British, and her secret opposition as the infamous courier Oriole, to England

Elizabeth must learn when the Regulars plan to seize a critical store of munitions. But she hasn't counted on the arrival of Jonathan Carleton, a captain in the Seventeenth Light Dragoons. To Elizabeth's dismay, the attraction between them is immediate, powerful, and fought on both sides in a war of wits and words. As Carleton quickly wins General Thomas Gage's confidence and the assignment to ferret out Oriole, Elizabeth realizes he is her most dangerous foe--and the possessor or her heart.

Wow! Just leave a comment and your email address to enter to win. I'll draw a name next Friday.
