Guest Post with Author Dianne Hartsock and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to the blog author Dianne Hartsock. Dianne is currently on tour and has stopped by RFTC to chat about her book Nathaniel. Before I give the floor to Dianne lets get to know her a bit.

Dianne lives in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon with her incredibly patient husband, who puts up with the endless hours she spends hunched over the keyboard letting her characters play.

She says Oregon’s raindrops are the perfect setting in which to write her tales. There’s something about being cooped up in the house while it pours rain outside and a fire crackles on the hearth inside that kindles her imagination.

Currently, Dianne works as a floral designer in a locally-owned gift shop. Which she says is the perfect job for her. When not writing, she can express herself through the rich colors and textures of flowers and foliage.

Feature and Giveaway: One Night to Remember by Kristin Miller

Check out my review for One Night to Remember here.

First class clothing designer Elizabeth Scott isn’t all that she appears. She may be elegant and poised on the outside, dining with the richest on the ship, but she’s hiding a dark secret within.

Thieves boarded the Titanic, too…

Officer Thomas McGuire is as honest as they come. Working to make a decent living on the ship of dreams, he can’t believe his eyes when the most striking lady he’s ever seen steals from another first class passenger. As the night goes on, Thomas must decide whether he plans to arrest or seduce Elizabeth and she’s not making it easy on him—the heat sparking between them is unlike anything they’ve ever known.

Time is running out…

The Titanic is sinking fast. Elizabeth has finally met a true gentleman—one who gazes upon her with total adoration yet fulfills her deepest fantasies. But being a gentleman means more than playing the stuffy part. Thomas insists on helping other passengers until the very end, even if that means going down with the ship.

In the fight for their lives, they just might find a love worth dying for.

ARC Review: One Night to Remember by Kristin Miller

I am a huge fan of all things Titanic and when I saw this novella I was excited but skeptical at the same time. I wasn't sure if the author would be able to convey a convincing story and make it believable. I thought the author did a great job and I did enjoy this quick read.

While I have a little bit of a problem believing that Elizabeth would be so quick to jump into bed with Thomas I did enjoy watching them together. I especially love the cat and mouse chase scene in the beginning of the book.

Elizabeth Scott is a clothing designer traveling first class on the Titanic. She seems nice and innocent but she isn't all that she appears. Elizabeth is actually stealing from the first class passengers and giving it to families in need down in third class.

Thomas, an officer for the White Star Line can hardly believe the beautiful woman he's been watching all through dinner just stole another ladies purse. He follows her out of the dining room to confront her for stealing when the chase between them ensues. When Thomas finally does capture Elizabeth he has to decide to follow his honor or his heart.

I appreciated that the author was accurate with the history of the Titanic, I just had a problem with the ending. I won't go into specifics because I don't want to ruin it, but I was slightly disappointed. I just feel like some things could have been handled a bit differently.

All in all I did enjoy this novella but I honestly wish that it was longer. What little bit I saw of both Elizabeth and Thomas I enjoyed and I would have loved for the author to explore their characters a bit more.
