In honor of Valentine's Day, I am hosting a giveaway of five copies of The Italian Lover by Robert Hellenga.
The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice.
But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape.
A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core.
In order to enter you must leave a comment here telling me which book you would like to win. You may enter for both but please leave a separate comment for each one. Winners must live in the US or Canada and must have a street address (not a P.O. Box). Entries will be accepted until midnight eastern time on February 18th. I will randomly draw five winners for each title and notify them via email. Many, many thanks to Valerie at Hachette for generously providing the books for this giveaway!
