#TNTConfidential #12DaysofChristmas-GIVEAWAY-Day 2- Shehanne Moore & Lady Lazuli

Welcome to day 2 of #TNTConfidential 12 Days of Christmas! Please welcome, Shehanne Moore! 


What is your favorite thing about the Holidays?

How awful is this? Sprawling in front of a film and a blazing fire, vino in one had, choccies in the other , festives nibbles on the side? Look, I know should say Christmas Day, or socialising with friends and rellies, but that door stays shut.

What inspired you to write your book?

Ideas pop in and out my head like yo-yos. Believe me you would not want to live there. With this one I saw a Christmas Eve, a young man, the son of a duke and the worse for wear offers a lovely young woman a lift in his coach. She is a jewel thief with a valuable necklace burning a hole in her pocket.

I guess I just liked the notion of actions having consequences we cannot imagine. Then let’s scroll forward....

Share a Holiday anecdote with the readers:  

What one would you like? The Christmas day I nearly set the house up in flames after a poinsettia ring went on fire on the specially themed Victorian mantelpiece  and Mr Shey ran about with buckets of water during the charades? Or the time I tried explaining the concept of a chocolate advent calendar to my younger girl? How Santa came when the chocolates were all eaten, so she stuffed 34 down her throat there and then?

Loving Lady Lazuli*

Only one man in England can identify her. Unfortunately he’s living next door.

Ten years ago sixteen year old Sapphire, the greatest jewel thief England has ever known, ruined Lord Devorlane Hawley’s life. Now she’s dead and buried, all the respectable widow, Cassidy Armstrong, wants is the chance to prove who she really is.

 But not only does her new neighbor believe he knows that exactly, he’s hell-bent on revenge.  All he needs is the actual proof.  So when he asks her to choose between being his mistress, or dangling on the end of a rope, only Sapphire can decide…

 What’s left for a woman with nowhere left to go, but to stay exactly where she is?

And hope, that when it comes to neighbors, Devorlane Hawley won’t prove to be the one from hell.

Available form 17th January from Etopia Press

* Loving Lady Lazuli's cover will be revealed on December 24th at Shehanne's blog.

What hasn’t she worked at while pursuing her dream of becoming a published author, which was why she was delighted to sell The Unraveling of Lady Fury to Etopia Press six days after subbing it  She sold her second His Judas Bride on the day Lady Fury released.
