Debut Author Pamela Sherwood Spotlight & Giveaway!

Happy Wednesday Folks! Want a chance to win a copy of debut author, Pamela Sherwood's highly anticipated novel, WALTZ WITH A STRANGER, before it releases on December 4th from Sourcebooks??? Leave a comment for your chance!

Crippled after a riding accident, shy heiress Aurelia Newbold shuns Society--until a dashing stranger draws her into a secret waltz and awakens desires she has long thought dead. After a year abroad to regain her health, she comes home to find the one man she’s been dreaming of--now an earl--engaged to the one woman she would never betray: her beloved twin sister.

One night James Trelawney took pity on a girl he saw as a wounded bird. Now the Earl of Trevanan, he is not prepared for the vibrant woman who returns to London, intent on reclaiming her life. Nor is he prepared for his growing desire for that woman--especially after he has proposed marriage to her dazzling twin.

As the scene shifts from London's glittering ballroom to Cornwall's windswept coast, forbidden desires resurface, and inhibitions begin to melt beneath the summer sun. But even as James struggles to resolve his feelings for both sisters, the secret that killed his predecessor reaches out from the grave to threaten his life--and that of the woman he loves.

Praise for Waltz With a Stranger...

“Sherwood effortlessly evokes the world of Edith Wharton and Henry James, and her exquisite character development, memorable secondary characters, and impeccably researched historical setting infuse this elegantly written debut with a richness and depth worth savoring.”   Booklist STARRED review

 “Readers will be enchanted
 RT Book Reviews

“Sympathetic protagonists will keep readers engaged
Publishers Weekly

Mark your calendar! Pamela will be back visiting with us on December 11th for a fun post.  :-)

Hello, everyone!

I'm thrilled to be invited to blog here at History Undressed and I look forward to meeting you all officially in December.

LilMissMolly, thanks for the congratulations! I still have to pinch myself now and then to be sure I'm not dreaming about my book coming out in a few weeks. I hope you enjoy Waltz with a Stranger.

This sounds like an interesting book!

What a pretty cover! Love triangles can be interesting, especially when there are sisters involved. Sounds like a great book. Thanks for the giveaway. Julie - riveroftimefan(at)gmail(dot)com

I can't wait to read it. I've got it on my wish list at amazon. Congrats.

Pamela Sherwood said...

Thanks, Margay! I hope you find it interesting enough to check out.

Hi, Julie--yes, I do feel that I got lucky with my cover. The mood and feeling of it--dreamy and soft-focus-- are very much in keeping with the tone of the book. As for the triangle, I hope it proves to be an interesting one. I couldn't resist the challenge of trying to create a situation where all three characters involved were fully realized and even sympathetic.

Thanks, Queen of Books! I hope you enjoy Waltz with a Stranger once it's in your hands.
