Blog Tour: Moonlight On My Mind by Jennifer McQuiston (Excerpt + Giveaway)

I'm welcoming author Jennifer McQuiston today, for her upcoming release, Moonlight on my Mind!

*Avon is hosting a TOUR WIDE Rafflecopter Giveaway (Paperback Copy of WHAT HAPPENS IN SCOTLAND & SUMMER IS FOR LOVERS, Pack of Mother Mae’s Chocolate Chip Scottish Shortbread Mix and Delightful Ceramic Shortbread Pan)

About the book:
To ruin a man’s life once takes a regrettable mistake.

To do so twice takes a woman like Julianne Baxter.
Eleven months ago, Julianne’s statement to the authorities wrongly implicated Patrick, the new Earl of Haversham, in his older brother’s death. The chit is as much trouble as her red hair suggests, and just as captivating. Now she has impetuously tracked him to the wilds of Scotland, insisting that he return home to face a murder charge and save his family from ruin. A clandestine wedding may be the only way to save her reputation—and his neck from the hangman’s noose.

Julianne has no objection to the match. More and more she’s convinced of Patrick’s innocence, though when it comes to igniting her passions, the man is all too guilty. And if they can only clear his name, a marriage made in haste could bring about the most extraordinary pleasure…

That flash of a green waistcoat caught her eye again, circling her focus back around to the real purpose of this dance. “Tell me about your brother, Mr. Channing. Does he not require a good night’s sleep as well?”

Her partner’s brown eyes narrowed. “Are you always so forward, Miss Baxter?”  

“Are you always so tired?” She arched a single brow, a move she had perfected in front of a mirror by the age of ten. When properly employed, it usually sent its recipients scuttling for the safety of other company, or, depending on the age and fortitude of the adversary in question, their mothers.

Mr. Channing did none of those things.

“I can hold my own in most athletic endeavors.” His lips held the promise of a wicked slant should they ever be fully unleashed, but he seemed to keep his expressions on a tight tether. “But I do find my aim improved by a solid night’s sleep.”

“I thought we were going to leave off with the discussion of rifles and the like.”

“Whoever said I was speaking of rifles?”

  1. Eeeekkk~ Jennifer!!! I cannot wait to read this!!!! It feels like Cam just recently came out and now it's Patrick!!! :D

    I love Historical heroes because they're so dreamy and honor bound! Plus, they are gentlemans and knows how to court ladies~ I also love seeing them in breeches and cravats.

  2. liked this blog. It made me want to read this book

  3. Thank so much for having me on Mary! I love the excerpt you chose. :)

  4. Thanks for the giveaway. I haven't read Jennifer's debut book, but I know it got good reviews. This one sounds interesting.

  5. I love Jennifer's stories and one reason I love her heroes so much is that she always writes them in a way that you actually end up feeling like you know and understand both their weaknesses and strengths.

    The first historical hero that I fell in love with was Don Quixote by Cervantes which I read when I was a teenager - after all what teenage girl doesn't want a "hero" who only sees the good things about her and wants someone to stand up to others for her?

    That's the exact type of hero I'm looking for - one who may have faults but has the strength of character to overcome them and of course loves and protects his heroine!

  6. I haven't read Jennifer before but I am definitely putting her on my Author's to buy list. I love the blurbs and look forward to reading this.

  7. I like a historical hero because he try's to be gentlemanly in public and a rake in private.

  8. I thoroughly enjoyed this story from Ms. McQuiston. She continues to create characters you want to know and find yourself wishing to know them longer! I have her on my authors to watch list!

  9. I love Historical Heros, because of the courtship.

  10. I'm new to Jennifer's books and would love to read this one, the cover is so romantic!
