Win a Julie Lessman Book!

Julie Lessman is the first author friend I made when I started the process of reviewing books on this blog. I loved her book and asked for an interview and was delighted when she responded with great enthusiasm and warmth. I absolutely love her and am so grateful for how she writes such fabulous romances but also freely gives of herself to readers.

I've been dying for the first book in her new series, The Winds of Change, to launch. The first book is called A Hope Undaunted and will be in stores in September (this is me wailing...the wait is too long!) but...Julie has generously offered to give away a SIGNED ARC to one lucky person! I am so madly jealous you have no idea. This is definitely an anticipated read for me.

Here's some information about the book:

What happens when the boy she loved to hate ...

becomes the man she hates to love?

The 1920s are drawing to a close, and feisty Katie O'Connor is the epitome of the new woman -- smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jack fits all of her criteria for a husband -- good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and eating out of her hand. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Cluny McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face to face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jack? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever?

It sounds FABULOUS! doesn't it? I need it now. And here of course is some info about Julie followed by some links of great importance.
