Thanks to Avon for sponsoring the giveaway.

Avon is sponsoring a giveaway for the Dear Author readers to celebrate authors Loretta Chase and Liz Carlyle.  The giveaway features a red Vera Bradley tote with the entire backlist of Liz Carlyle and a purple Vera Bradley tote with the entire backlist of Loretta Chase.  For those digital readers, Avon is giving away a gift card and a purple tech case.   You can find out more about Avon romances at, “like” them onFacebook, or follow them on Twitter.  The giveaway is limited to US and Canada residents.



Loretta Chase recently hit the New York Times list with her famous, Lord of Scoundrels.  She has a recent release, Silk Is for Seduction (reviewed here), that is widely available in print and digital. Chase is one of the DA favorite authors.   Liz Carlyle’s next release, The Bride Wore Scarlet, was just released last week.  The heroine is the daughter of Max de Rohan who starred in his own book No True Gentleman.  From Carlyle’s first book, My False Heart, an entire network of families have been created and Carlyle is now writing the second generation of those families.  It’s been fascinating to watch the ebb and flow of the connections.

Chase and Carlyle have some of the richest backlists out there and this is one giveaway that I wish I could win.  To enter, leave a comment stating your favorite trope or theme in romance.  This contest will close on Friday noon CST.  Here are the titles for Liz and Loretta for the Vera Bradley promotion.  All non-Avon titles (bolded) have been provided by the authors.
