KNIGHT OF DESIRE BLOG TOUR and GIVEAWAY

THIS GIVEAWAY BLOG
TOUR HAS ENDED!
KNIGHT OF DESIRE
by Margaret Mallory
BLOG TOUR, JULY 5-JULY 10

ABOUT THE BOOK:
His surcoat still bloody from battle, William FitzAlan comes to claim the strategic borderlands granted to him by the king. One last prize awaits him at the castle gates: the lovely Lady Catherine Rayburn. Catherine risked everything to spy for the crown. Her reward? Her lands are declared forfeit and she is given this choice: marry FitzAlan or be taken to the Tower. Catherine agrees to give her handsome new husband her body, but she's keeping secrets, and dare not give him her heart. As passion ignites and danger closes in, Catherine and William must learn to trust in each other to save their marriage, their land, and their very lives.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
MARGARET MALLORY recently surprised her friends and family by abandoning her legal career-and her steady job-to write tales of romance and adventure. At long last, she can satisfy her passion for justice by punishing the bad and rewarding the worthy-in the pages of her novels, of course. She lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband and their two college-age children. KNIGHT OF DESIRE is her first book so she would dearly love to hear from readers.

From Mallory's Website

Margaret Mallory started out as a Midwest girl. Except for two years in Africa, she grew up in small towns in northern Michigan, where her dad was a county extension agent. She received degrees from Michigan State University and the University of Michigan Law School, and then headed to Washington, DC to save the world. When that failed, she packed up and moved to the Pacific Northwest for no reason except that it was beautiful and far from her last jobs and boyfriends. She admits to having a vague notion of finding herself a park ranger with a dog. The man she met was not a park ranger, but he was willing to get the dog. Marriage and children soon followed.

Margaret spent many rewarding—but rather wearing—years in jobs devoted to improving services for abused children and care for the elderly. Not long ago, she surprised (shocked?) her friends and family by abandoning her legal career—and steady job—to write novels. She is thrilled to spend her days writing stories of love and adventure, instead of going to endless meetings. After all, she has always loved romantic tales, heroic deeds, and happy endings. And, at long last, she can satisfy her passion for justice by punishing the bad and rewarding the worthy—in the pages of her novels.

With her two children off to college, Margaret spends most of her time working on the next books in her medieval romance series, All the King’s Men. KNIGHT OF DESIRE is her first novel, so she would dearly love to hear from readers.

I would like an entry.
This should be an easy answer because years ago I lived on historical romance but nothing is coming to mind-I am however, looking forward to reading A Hint of Wicked as soon as I receive my copy.

I haven't read a lot of historical romances but would love to change that - I did just read The Chase by Lynsay Sands.

Knight of Desire sounds like a wonderful medieval romance.

One of my favorite historicals is Mary Balogh's A Summer to Remember. And I'm looking forward to reading Lisa Kleypas' Tempt Me at Twilight which comes out this fall.

I loved the Kushiel series which I know is fantasy too, but it's definitely of time gone by. ;) So I consider it historical as well.
