A Chance to Win Love on a Dime--by Cara Lynn James

Missy here. I wanted to let you know debut author Cara Lynn James will be our guest blogger tomorrow! So get ready for a great post!

Also, Cara has offered to give away a copy of her new release from Thomas Nelson, Love on a Dime! So go ahead and leave a comment today and/or tomorrow to be entered in the drawing. And hey, if you visit and leave a comment both days, I'll enter you twice. :) Just be sure to leave contact information so I'll know you want to be entered.

And here's a quick blurb about the book:

In age of elegance and excess, Lilly Westbrook longs for a love both true and eternal.
Newport, Rhode Island, 1899, is a place of shimmering waves, sleek yachts, and ladies of leisure. Of opulent mansions that serve as summer cottages for the rich and famous. Home of railroad magnates and banking tycoons--dashing young men and the women who aspire to marry them.

But it's not the place for lady novelists. Especially not those who pen disreputable dime novels. This poses a problem for Lilly Westbrook, because that's exactly what she does.

No one in Lilly's social set knows she pens fiction under the nom de plume Fannie Cole. Not her family or the wealthy young man about to propose to her. And especially not Jackson Grail, the long-lost beau who just bought her publishing company...and who stirs her heart more than she cares to admit.

But Lilly must put aside her feelings and follow the path that will maintain her family's social stature and provide the financial security that everyone is depending on.

Now Lilly faces a double dilemma. Can she continue to protect her secret identity? And will she have the courage to choose the man who will risk it all just to win her heart?

See you tomorrow with more from Cara!
