India Black Give Away!

India Black: A Madam of Espionage Mystery by Carol K Carr

Now that I have read this fabulous book and reviewed it (HERE), Carol K Carr and I want to give one of you lucky book bloggers the opportunity to win it.

Here's the synopsis:

In the winter of 1876, the beautiful young madam India Black is occupied with her usual tasks--keeping her tarts in line, avoiding the police, and tolerating the clergyman bent on converting her girls. But when Sir Archibald Latham of the War Office dies from a heart attack while visiting her brothel, India is unexpectedly thrust into a deadly game between Russian and British agents who are seeking the military secrets Latham carried.

French, the handsome British spy, discovers India disposing of Latham's body, and blackmails her into recovering the missing documents. Their quest takes them from the Russian embassy to Claridge's Hotel, from London to the English coast, all the while dodging the Russians intent to do them harm.

But it is their own tempestuous relationship they will have to weather as India and French attempt to resit the mutual attraction between them--an attraction that can prove as deadly as the conspiracy entangling them...

Here's what you need to do. It's all very simple. No fancy follow me here, there and yon for extra entries or post 14 different comments with all the different ways you follow and how you've posted about the contest, etc., and so on. In fact, you don't even have to be my follower to enter. You just need to have an interest in this fabulous book.

It would be really great if you would post about this give-away on your own blog to help us spread the word. But it is not required to enter.

Everybody has an equal chance to win. Mr. Linky is not cooperating with me at the moment, so I would ask all those interested to leave a comment with the following information:

2. Your email address (example: phryne1969 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I will use a random number generator (number assigned based on order of comments) to choose the winner. That's it. Entries will be accepted until Saturday, February 5 and a winner will be chosen on Sunday, February 6
. The publisher has limited the winners to US and Canada residents only. Once I have a winner I will contact you for a mailing address and share that with Carol so she can arrange to have your book shipped to you.
