Giveaway! Never Seduce a Scot by Maya Banks (Historical Romance)

Never Seduce a Scot by Maya Banks (historical romance novel book giveaway)
Giveaway!  Maya Banks' newest historical romance, Never Seduce a Scot, has been garnering rave reviews from all sorts of readers.  My favorite mini-review was a tweet from contemporary romance author Shannon Stacey:
"Just finished reading Never Seduce A Scot. I am now an ooey-gooey sniffling hot mess of happy romance reader."
Summary: Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her “touched.” Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn’t speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty—unprepared for the delights to come. Graeme is a rugged warrior with a voice so deep and powerful that his new bride can hear it, and hands and kisses so tender and skilled that he stirs her deepest passions.

Graeme is intrigued by the mysterious Eveline, whose silent lips are ripe with temptation and whose bright, intelligent eyes can see into his soul. As intimacy deepens, he learns her secret. But when clan rivalries and dark deeds threaten the wife he has only begun to cherish, the Scottish warrior will move heaven and earth to save the woman who has awakened his heart to the beautiful song of a rare and magical love.

    1. Yep, Garwood is pretty much the queen! I wish she would go back to medievals rather than the romantic suspense. I really haven't liked any of those. :(

  2. I have never read any of Maya Banks books, so thank you so much for this giveaway. As far as Medieval romances, I love Julie Garwood.

    1. Another vote for Garwood! I think 'The Prize' was my first real medieval romance, and it's still one of my favorites despite the heroine's goofy name (NIcholaa).

  3. I have read a few medieval romances that I really enjoyed. I have read many set during these times by Hannah Howell and really enjoyed them.

    1. I'll have to check out Hannah Howell - I've never read any of hers. I also love Madeline Hunter's By Possession. I totally swoon at that one!

  4. I like to read Medievals, but I haven't read too many. I love Julie Garwood and Kinley MacGregor.

    1. Is Kinley MacGregor the alter-ego of a different non-historical writer? For some reason I have in my head that she also writes under a different name. That being said, I think I read one of her books in an airport ages ago. I remember liking it, but don't remember too much else....

    1. Oh, I didn't know Phillipa Ashley wrote historicals! I've read some of her modern chick lit (I think that's how I'd classify it) and enjoyed it, so I'll have to check out her other genres.

  6. I like medieval books, but don't have a favorite yet.

    1. I forgot to mention that I really like Judith McNaught's 'Kingdom of Dreams.' Excellent alpha hero, but the heroine is equally tough.

  7. I don't think I've read a medieval! Must fix that :)
