Giveaway and New Release!

Post by SuzyQ » Fri February 3rd, 2012, 1:31 am

My beloved professor, Dr. Crockett, has allowed me to set up giveaways on his behalf at GoodReads and LibraryThing now that WORLDS APART is out on paperback.

Also, the stand alone sequel, A CELT IN ROME, is also out on Amazon! I personally liked it even better than the first, if that were even possible.

Here is my Amazon review:
A CELT IN ROME is an engrossing read that follows a journey through the vast Roman Empire and all the colorful characters along the way. As the Romans continue to encroach on Northern Britannia, Neeve sets out for Rome to rescue her brother, a Caledonian warrior captured by the Romans, and faces near impossible obstacles. She also seeks to reunite with her lost Roman husband, a centurion sent on a bleak mission, trailed by a ruthless yet conflicted assassin. Meanwhile, a nouveau-riche commoner and his calculating mistress threaten to devastate their lives as collateral damage for their political aspirations, as well as the life of a young patrician involved in the mysterious cult of Chrestus.

Virtually every chapter ends with a cliffhanger that leaves you wanting more. There are a lot of surprising twists that you don't see coming, and as the plot develops it's satisfying to discover how each character's story is intertwined with the others. Additionally, it's fascinating to learn how Christianity was viewed by the Empire in the early stages, with all the outlandish rumors surrounding the new religion, and the conflicts that Christians faced because of the hostility. A CELT IN ROME is a stand alone novel that can be thoroughly enjoyed even without having read the first book (though reading this will make you want to read Worlds Apart to find out the back story of the characters).
