Blog Tour: CAPTIVATED BY HIS KISS Box Set featuring Bronwen Evans + #Giveaway

USA Today Bestselling author, Bronwen Evans (Bron), loves story-telling – gobbling up movies, reading books and attending the theater. Her head is always filled with characters and stories, particularly lovers in angst. Is it any wonder she’s a proud romance writer.

It was while living and working in London she discovered the offices of Mills & Boon and the germ of an idea to embark on a romance writing career was born.

Almost eight years later, on her return to New Zealand, encouraged by a close friend battling a life-threatening illness, Bronwen finally started down the path to publication by joining RWA, The Beau Monde, RWAustralia and RWNZ.

Bronwen’s first manuscript, INVITATION TO RUIN, was completed late 2009, and was sold to Kensington Publishing early 2010, in a two book deal. Her debut novel, INVITATION TO RUIN, received a 4.5 star rating from RT Book Reviews and was nominated in the RT Reviewer’s Choice Awards – Best First Historical. Invitation to Ruin was also won the RomCon Readers Crown Best Historical 2012.

Bron’s first contemporary, The Reluctant Wife, also won the RomCon Readers Crown, Best Short Contemporary 2013.

Her first book in her Disgraced Lords series hit the USA Today bestsellers list and she has hit it several times since.

She lives in New Zealand in sunny Hawkes Bay with her Cavoodle named Brandy.

I’ve contributed To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone to the fabulous CAPTIVATED BY HIS KISS Boxed Set, so the lovely ladies of Romancing Rakes for the Love of Romance have asked me for my TOP TEN stories with my favorite Marquess or Marquis characters. I could have come up with hundreds but in no particular order (you’ll see some of my favorite authors because, well, I just love their books!):
  1. My Wicked Marquess by Gaelen Foley. The Marquess of Rotherstone
  2. Mastering the Marquess by Lavinia Kent. The Marquess of Swanston

As for To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone, I have to say that Marcus Danvers is one of my favorite heroes. Here is the blurb:
They Say Revenge is Sweet… 

Marcus Danvers, the Marquis of Wolverstone, is renowned for his cynical demeanor. It's rumored that long ago, a beautiful woman broke his heart. Now he lives life for pleasure. He’s the consummate, handsome rake. If anyone tries to get too close—let’s just say his bark is as bad as his bite. That is, until the beautiful, as she is deceitful, Contessa Orsini re-enters his life with a wager he cannot resist. When he wins, he’ll have Sabine exactly where he wants her—in his bed and at his mercy. 

Forced to return to England and avenge her father’s death, Sabine knows the one person who can help her is the only man she has ever loved—Marcus. The man who hates her with as much passion as he once loved her. But Marcus doesn’t know that by winning the wager he’ll also be getting his revenge. For there are some secrets best left buried…
I hope you take the opportunity to buy CAPTIVATED BY HIS KISS for 99c. It’s full of seven wonderful romances.
