Historical romance author Katharine Ashe has us head over heels for the handsome heroes of the Falcon Club. This summer's How to be a Proper Lady has just hit shelves and fans who have already read the book don't have long to wait for the next series installment: September's How a Lady Weds a Rogue. We know that this novel will match one of the Falcon Club men with a country miss, but the heroine's identity has been a tightly wrapped secret — until now! All this week the author is giving readers a chance to guess the heroine's identity with a giveaway. Fabulous prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place winners. But don't worry; you won't be guessing blindly, each day Ashe will reveal a new clue to help you discover the heroine's identity. Now we're handing this post over to Katharine Ashe, so she can share how to enter and who is eligible to participate ... and of course, the very first hint of the contest!
Until now the heroine of How a Lady Weds a Rogue (coming September 25), has been a mystery. But my hero, delectably handsome secret agent Wyn Yale, is impatient to know the name of the lady he will lose his heart to, and he wants you to guess her identity!
Each day this week, Monday through Friday, right here on this blog post I’ll offer a different clue to her identity, five clues in all. Winners will be announced on Monday, July 16. Check back every day for a new RT-exclusive clue!
The Winners are Carey S (First Place), Krista B (Second Place) and Irene O (Third Place).
HINT #1: She has appeared in at least two of Katharine’s previous novels.
HINT #2: She has dark hair.
HINT #3: She has a very curious nature that often leads her into trouble. Some might say she’s positively wayward!
HINT #4: The story is set in 1820, and she is the youngest heroine Katharine has ever written.
HINT #5: Her first name is one of the following: Amarantha, Beatrice, Caitria, Charlotte, Clarice, Constance, Diantha, Emily, Fiona, Isobel, Jane, Lady Justice, or Sylvia.
The heroine is Miss Diantha Lucas!
