If you’re like me, you’re busy busy busy. I love to visit blogs, but it seems I never have time to get by in a timely fashion…and never in time to win anything! Well, no worries about that here. The Historical Reader Salon will be open all month long and you can come by anytime during the month to join the conversation and enter to win! No rush, no hurry…just a nice relaxing visit (or three) at your leisure. Each month, I’ll throw out a topic for discussion as well as ways for you to win. We’ll keep the conversation going in the comments section and just see how our Reader Salon grows. Hopefully it will develop into a thriving community centered around what we all love—historical romance!

Mia Marlowe in the Reader Salon...

Happy September, my lovely Reader Salon patrons! Labor Day has come and gone, school has begun and the last waning days of a long and lovely summer are coming to an end.
What better way to start fall off than with fabulous historical romances? For the month of September, in celebration of her 20th book (yes, 20th!), I'll be featuring the works of Mia Marlowe here at Heather's Historical Reader Salon!
Today, just feast your eyes on her lovely covers (and a few excerpts). Then check back throughout the month for more detailed features of her books. At the end of the month, I'll be giving away FIVE of Mia's books (one each for 5 lucky winners!), so come back often!
And readers, if you've read any of Mia's work, please tell us all about it in the comments so that other Salon Patrons can see what YOU love about Mia...

  3. I had read maybe 2 books from here: How to Vex a Viscount and How to Please a Pirate. To be honest, I love them because they had a lot of humor in it. I didn't think I would enjoy it but I really did. I always reread the books again because of the bantering of the H/H.

  4. I haven't read any yet but I won a copy of "One Night With a Rake" and it's currently sitting in my TBR pile. And I really want to read Plaid to the Bone.

  5. I haven't read many Mia books but I've read Improper Gentleman anthology after picking it up from the library. Looking forward to finding more Mia books! :)

  6. I haven' read any yet, but Plaid To The Bone looks great!

  7. I have only read Touch of a Lady and enjoyed it very much! Mia's series "The Spirit of the Highlands" seems very captivating to read. If I can't win them somewhere, both book Plaid To The Bone and Plaid Tidings will be on my TBR list. I love stories set in the Highlands!

  8. I haven't read any yet, but she is on my TBR list.

  9. I have the The Royal Rakes Series which is going great but I do really want to read her Touch of Seduction Series or the How To series.

  10. I don't recall reading any, but I'm sure I have.
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway

  11. I need to read Mia! She's in my TBR pile! Thanks for such a great giveaway..

  12. I have read at least a couple if Mia's boiks in each category. If these any if them are elgible to be picked up and read again and again. I also enjoyed those whe co-authored with Connie Mason. Mia is one of those authors, when you cant make uo yourr mind what to read, just reach for one of hers and you cant go wrong.

  13. I've read most of her collaborative series with Connie Mason and have loved each and every book! I've also read the Royal Rakes series and loved them too. I have some of her books on my Keeper Shelf! I'm looking forward to her new book!

  14. I read a few... My favorite is Touch of a thief!

  15. I haven't read any! This is the perfect opportunity for me to win some! I love historical romance so I'm sure I will love them all!

  16. I've not read that many, How to Please a Pirate is the one I like best. I really liked the characters.

  17. "How to distract a Duchess" was an excellent reading. I wish to win another one of the "How to" series ;-)

  18. Mia is a new author for me. I do love historicals so I'm definitely going to look at her book list!

  19. How To Distract A Duchess

  20. I love all Mia's books that I've read. I'm working my way to all her books. she's a phenomenal writer.
