THE SCENT OF JASMINE-A GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE SCENT OF JASMINE
BY JUDE DEVERAUX 

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Would you risk your life—on the love of a lifetime?

Charleston, 1799: A daughter of Southern gentility and a gifted painter, Catherine Edilean Harcourt has no lack of suitors at home in Virginia, waiting to fulfill her dream of marriage and family. But Cay's adventurous spirit, fostered by growing up with her three brothers, is piqued while visiting her godfather in South Carolina. Bedridden with a broken leg, he asks Cay to fill in for him on an urgent task: on her way to a fancy dress ball, she must deliver a packed horse to an old friend's son—who also happens to be an escaped convict charged with murdering his wife! Cay agrees to the plan, which doesn't go at all as planned . . . whereupon she finds herself fleeing Alexander McDowell's captors, riding blind into the night with the fugitive Scotsman. Though she should fear him, Cay finds herself overwhelmingly attracted to Alex, and drawn into his tale of misguided justice and his innocence as they seek refuge in the steamy Florida everglades. Will trusting him be the worst mistake of her life? Or will falling in love be the salvation both of them have been looking for?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jude Deveraux is the author of forty New York Times bestsellers, including The Scent of Jasmine, Scarlet Nights, Days of Gold, Lavender Morning, Return to Summerhouse, and Secrets. To date, there are more than sixty million copies of her books in print worldwide. She lives in North Carolina. To learn more, visit www.judedeveraux.com.

PRAISE AND FACTS ABOUT THE SCENT OF JASMINE SERIES:
"A delightful adventure romance. The setting is colorful, but the charming characters steal the book, specifically Deveraux's enchanting heroine and engaging hero. This is a tale to read for the simple joy of a well-crafted romance."
-- Romance Times, 4 1/2 stars 
   
THE SCENT OF JASMINE is the 4th book in the EDILEAN Series by Jude. The three that come before it are LAVENDER MORNING, DAYS OF GOLD, and SCARLET NIGHTS. There is also HEARTWISHES (coming soon) and the novella PROMISES (a VOOK-video book) that follow THE SCENT OF JASMINE. However, each can be read as a stand alone novel and this one, THE SCENT OF JASMINE is one you will get caught up in very quickly.

I don't read romances too often, but this sounds like a pure romance (no vampires, shapeshifters, or the like) so I think it would be fun to excape with Cay into her romance and into everglades. Please enter me to win.

Seems to be a somewhat different take on the sheltered girl/unjustly accused man story line--not many use the Florida Everglades as part of the story, especially in that period of history.

After looking at her website, I have read several of Deveraux' books, but none of the more recent ones. This might be a good one to get reacquainted with her writing.
