Book Tour and Author Signing Event for BLACKMOORE by Julianne Donaldson (Plus a Giveaway!!!!!!)

Big post today guys!  First, my review:

BLACKMOORE

by Julianne Donaldson
Page Count: 276
Genre: Regency Romance
Book Brand: A Proper Romance
Published by Shadow Mountain


Placement in the Pile: Top of the Stack!


Summary:

Kate Worthington knows she can never have her heart’s desire and so believes she will never marry. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore on the cliffs above the seashore, where she must face the truth and the man that has kept her heart captive.

Set in northern England, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn to follow her heart. With hints of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, Blackmoore is a page-turning tale of romance, intrigue and devotion.
 

Review:

Oh how I love Julieanne's books!

In this novel we find a young lady not so naiive in her world of social classes and how one can be ruined by unsatisfactory behavior from family members.  Kate has grown up in a not so happy home, and finds herself drawing closer and closer to her childhood friends, the Delafields.

However something changes in all of their relationships.  Sylvia's friendship turns cold, and Henry... well what can be said about Henry but SWOON!  But both Kate and Henry's mothers have plans of their own.  And Kate soon learns how far she is willing to go to set herself free of it all.


Blackmoore will not disappoint fans of all things regency and romance. 

Book signing:

Now here are some awesome photos of the book signing event the Julianne had at The King's English in Salt Lake City!  It was an open reception with some amazing handsome regency men to hang out with and take photos with, and Julianne looked absolutely beautiful! 

Me and Julianne!  She was just glowing!

Handsome man #1
The beautiful cake, and to the left there were awesome period treats, that I didn't manage to get a good picture of.
Handsome man #2.  He was my fave!  They were so fun!

Signing the copy of Blackmoore I'm giving away today!

Me and Julianne once more!

And last but not least!  A giveaway of one of my ARC copies! *Edited:  Giveaway closes on 9/17 11:59 PM MST, winner will be announced 9/18! (Another edit -- got my month numbers mixed up!)
