Giveaway July 20-26

It’s that time again–time for my monthly giveaway. Please comment on my blog for your chance to win one fo the two books this month.

I’m reading Kara Swanson’s second book in the series, Shadow, and decided I had to read the first one, Dust, so I bought two copies. Amazon has this posted about Dust:

The truth about Neverland is far more dangerous than a fairy tale…

Claire Kenton believes the world is too dark for magic to be real—since her twin brother was stolen away as a child. Now Claire’s desperate search points to London…and a boy who shouldn’t exist.

Peter Pan is having a beastly time getting back to Neverland. Grounded in London and hunted by his own Lost Boys, Peter searches for the last hope of restoring his crumbling island: a lass with magic in her veins.

The girl who fears her own destiny is on a collision course with the boy who never wanted to grow up. The truth behind this fairy tale is about to unravel everything Claire thought she knew about Peter Pan—and herself.

Draw Me to Your Side, Book Four in my Revolutionary Faith Series is historical fiction:

Warships in the harbor explode with battle cries for freedom in the hearts of Charles Town’s patriots.

Charles Town, South Carolina, 1775—With the British warships threatening his family and livelihood, Louis Lestarjette commits to aid the fiery Patriots like Francis Marion, Christopher Gadsden, and Silas Deane with secret correspondences in code and in French. With an expanding family, Louis values their lives and safety over his. Not convinced that the colonies can succeed in separation from Britain, he abides by his word—available with funds, his life, and his possible absence from Elizabeth, an unpleasant sacrifice.

As Elizabeth faces the birth of her second child, she wonders at the wisdom of bringing new life into this war zone. While cannons are aimed at the city and she’s confined to her home, she watches other women continue in their secret mission. Knowing her activity can eventually begin again, she considers where and how her little family can survive in the turbulence of pending independence. Louis’ impending volatile role leave her questioning the possibility of being in a war alone. To survive she must draw to God’s side as all else is changing.
