Fearless Love Giveaway

Fearless Love ( coming out 10/9 from Samhain) is the first Konigsburg book where I actually have a singer as a main character. All my books include Americana music because I love it and also because it’s a huge part of life in the Texas Hill Country. But this time I actually have a heroine who’s an alt country singer—MG Carmody. She’s a little battered by her experiences in Nashville (she’s not alone—Texas singers from Willie Nelson to Robert Earl Keen have found out that Nashville isn’t for them), and it takes her a while to get her confidence back. But once she does, she ends up singing in honky tonks all around Konigsburg, and I got the chance to put together a collection of songs that I’d love to sing myself if I only had the voice.

So here’s my deal. In honor of Fearless Love and MG’s singing career, I’m giving away a $10 gift certificate at iTunes. Leave a comment on this or any of the other posts I leave today and you’ll be entered for the drawing. What you buy is up to you, of course, but if you’re looking for suggestions, I’d go with (what else) “Fearless Love” by Bonnie Raitt. It’s a great song about giving up your doubts and going for love. Big, honking caveat: I’m afraid this offer will only work for people who can buy through the USA version of iTunes—the gift certificate can only be redeemed in the store where it was purchased.

Here’s the blurb for Fearless Love, just to get you going:

Fearless Love, Konigsberg, Texas, Book 7

Sweet music doesn’t come without a few sour notes.

MG Carmody never figured her musical dreams would crash against the reality of Nashville. Now the only thing she has going for her is her late grandfather’s chicken farm, which comes with molting hens that won’t lay, one irascible rooster, and a huge mortgage held by a ruthless opponent—her Great Aunt Nedda.

With fewer eggs to sell, MG needs extra money, fast. Even if it means carving out time for a job as a prep cook at The Rose—and resisting her attraction to its sexy head chef.

Joe LeBlanc has problems of his own. He’s got a kitchen full of temperamental cooks—one of whom is a sneak thief—a demanding cooking competition to prepare for, and an attraction to MG that could easily boil over into something tasty. If he could figure out the cause of the shy beauty’s lack of self confidence.

In Joe’s arms, MG’s heart begins to find its voice. But between kitchen thieves, performance anxiety, saucy saboteurs, greedy relatives, and one very pissed-off rooster, the chances of them ever making sweet music are looking slimmer by the day.

Warning: Contains hot kitchen sex, cool Americana music, foodie hysteria, and a whole lot of fowl play.

I had to giggle at the blurb...Hot Kitchen Sex? That can be dangerous AND messy. What's not to like about a book where there's music, singing, and food?? Sounds good.
