The Equestrian Ink Great Summer Giveaway--The Gift Horse

Perhaps it's fitting that we start off our great summer giveaway with my contemporary romance novel, titled The Gift Horse. To enter just comment on this blog post. I'll draw a winner at random next Friday night, July 8. You must be 18 to enter. You can choose either a paper or electronic copy. I am willing to ship to anywhere in the world. Every week for the next month or two, we'll post another of our author's books.

The Gift Horse BLURB:

Never look a Gift Horse in the mouth?

Carson Reynolds would dispute that statement. A gift horse got him into this mess in the first place. His mission: transform a run-down horse farm into the premium facility in the Pacific Northwest and a disorganized horse trainer with a penchant for self-sabotage into a winner.

After six years, Samantha MacIntyre has returned to the scene of a horrific barn fire allegedly caused by her carelessness. She accepts the head trainer position at that run-down facility to prove her innocence and to ride the talented, temperamental horse Carson received as a birthday gift. But first, she must pass the test: compete the horse for one season, impress Carson, and best his sister's preferred trainer.

As Sam and Carson get closer to the truth and mishaps escalate into serious accidents. With the help of an opinionated equine, they face a surprising reality--that love is more important than ambition, money, or blue ribbons.

I read the blog daily, but haven't been able to get any of the books yet.

I'd love to be the recipient of one of the prizes.

Thanks for making up the contest.

I'm never lucky with drawings. But, I know where to get the book if I don't win it ;)

Great idea!

Thanks everyone for entering to win my book. I'll admit when I first posted the blurb yesterday, I had a moment of panic. What if no one wants to win the book? Anyway, I'll keep the post open until Friday afternoon. So if you haven't entered yet, you do have a few more days.
