Valentine's Day is approaching soon, a time I'm sentimental about because my husband surprised me with an engagement ring on that day 28 years ago. So, to celebrate romance and Valentine's Day, I'm holding a contest, the prize to be a signed paperback copy of one of my two romance novels - The Dating Do-Over or The Affairs of Harriet Walters, Spinster - plus your chance to see your story here!

The purpose of the contest is to share the most romantic thing that's every happened to you. The stories will be posted on Valentine's Day, so please check back to enjoy them.

The Prizes

The winner can choose between an autographed copy of . . .

School teacher Viv Nowak has a sympathetic heart and abominable taste in men. She expects an engagement ring when her live-in lover of six years lands a terrific job in a new city. Instead, she gets dumped . . . on Valentine’s Day! Everyone, from her best friends to her father to her estranged mother, has an opinion on how she should fix her life. Her friends even insist on a dating do-over. But will they like her choice when she finally knows what her heart wants?

or . . .

Harriet Walters, a twenty-six year old spinster, is evicted from her home and sent to live with a persnickety aunt.  Resigned to the life of an unpaid companion, fate intervenes and Harriet becomes an heiress.  Leaving her small town life for the glittering attractions of London, Harriet chooses an unconventional path to happiness and love. 

Welcome to the Regency world, where life is slower, people are more courteous, and men and women court each other. So, pour yourself a cup of tea or chocolate, sit back in your chair, and enjoy an old-fashioned, sweet romance.

If you would like to receive an e-mail when a new Cathy Spencer novel is released, just leave your name and e-mail address with the "Contact Cathy" app to the right of this post.
