Valentine's Blog Hop! Spend a Week with Your Favorite Heroes

Thank you for stopping by to learn more about my hero from One Tempting Proposal, Sebastian, Duke of Wrexford!

I am giving away TWO signed paperback copies of One Tempting Proposal. To be entered into a random drawing, all you have to do is LEAVE A COMMENT! Tell me what your ideal Valentine's Day gift would be.

I'll draw the winners on February 14th and post them here and on my Facebook page.

What is your strength?

As a mathematician, I used to think logic was one of my strengths. Yet since encountering Lady Katherine Adderly at the first ball of the season, my thinking has been anything but logical. The woman is quite a...distraction.

What is your weakness?

I've been told that I can be too single-minded, and have a tendency to hold a grudge. However, since agreeing to Kat's scheme to convince our families that we're engaged, I'm finding tenacity a very useful trait.

What would you like to get on Valentine's Day?

I crave a private moment with Lady Katherine (Kat), when we aren't pretending to conduct a courtship for the benefit of others.

What would be your perfect date?

A dark, clear night in London and a visit to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich to observe the stars. Beyond our loyalty to our siblings, Kat and I have a fondness for stargazing in common.

What are you giving the heroine for Valentine's Day?

Kat adores plants and flowers. It would be quite a coup to gift her with a unique specimen, something she couldn't find in England. Some tropical orchid, perhaps.

Be sure to visit the other authors on the Valentine's Day blog hop to meet more yummy heroes and have a chance to win additional giveaways!

  3. I just enjoy time with my husband. His normal work keeps him out of town during the week so every moment I get with him is important to me.

  5. Something that doesn't have a price attached to it and comes from the heart. I prefer small considerate stuffs that means something rather than material things even a hug would suffice for me 😊

  12. We're not really celebrating Valentine Day. My husband is Laotian and he doesn't celebrate much of anything - he even doesn't remember when is the birthday of our kids. But, he's the kind of man who will give gifts for no particular reason, just because he felt like it. Yesterday, he bought me a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2... said it was my late birthday gift and my Valentine gift and my Mother's Day gift for the next couple of years. :)

    He forgot Valentine's Day this year. When he realized what he'd done, this man baked me sugar-free apple and cherry turnovers. Isn't that wonderful??? They were delicious!! I was amazed. Before my health failed, he couldn't cook a frozen burrito! :)
