Interview with Diana Quincy + Giveaway

I LOVE historical romances. They are my alltime favourites, a good, romantic HR just warms my heart. But when I read Diana Quincy‘s debut novel Seducing Charlotte I got an even better and more complex experience: it was a witty, intelligent and captivating romance I couldn’t resist, so I couldn’t have been happier to learn it was the first novel in a brand new series! Now book#2 just got released and to celebrate the release of Tempting Bella I got to interview Diana Quincy and quiz her about the series, weird research findings and favourite time periods. So take a seat and join us, you could even win some great prizes at the end! 😉

Diana: Hi Stella, thanks for having me! Let’s see…I’m a former television reporter who decided to start …

Bookish PSA: Books Kill

Today is Friday the 13th. An inglorious and dangerous day. Prone to rampant murderous rampages, and all manner of unspeakable tragedies.

It is my rather sad duty to inform you all that by the time you are reading this, I shall most certainly be dead.
