You've found the home on the net for romance writer, LaVerne Clark. Thanks for visiting! :)

I write suspense and light fantasy/paranormal set in the beautiful country of New Zealand. A land of myths and magic, Aotearoa (Maori for Long White Cloud) has always been a storytelling nation and it is my pleasure to share mine with you.

Sinful Sirens Blog Hop Giveaway

Today, I'm taking part in my very first Blog Hop! How exciting!
Feel free to tweet and share to your hearts content :)




Below you'll see a number of other blogs all taking part too - and all doing a giveaway of some sort!

I'm giving away one PDF copy of my romantic suspense novella, Guardian of the Jewel, to one lucky commenter.


BLURB
After coming to terms with the brutal death of her husband by unknown thugs half a world away from New Zealand, Amy Hamblin concentrates on bringing up their son alone, struggling to make their dream of an action-adventure tourism venture a success.
When a dark, dangerous-looking man knocks on her door late at night claiming to be a guest, the safe, quiet life she’d created is suddenly anything but...
Gabriel Ryan’s task of finding the priceless blue diamond Amy’s husband stole from an organised crime ring, is made all the more difficult by the attraction that sizzles between them. Playing a role had never been so hard, and now, with a ruthless killer on the trail of the missing jewel as well, he needed his wits about him to keep them all alive.

This is an International giveaway so please leave your email address so I can contact you if you are the lucky person chosen.

Winner will be contacted at the close of the blog hop - May 21th
Good luck - and don't forget to visit another few blogs listed below for more goodies to win :)

  1. It's a long time since I felt even remotely like a Sinful Siren, but my very first fantasies were always about tall, dark and handsome. Do you think this book will take me back 40-odd years?

    1. Welcome to Novel Natterings Kathleen! Hehehe - Love your comment :) Gabriel Ryan IS the epitome of tall, dark and handsome - with an Irish accent to boot! I hope you enjoy getting to know him - and I'm sure he'd have no troubles reverting you back to the Sinful Siren you were 40-odd years ago ;)
