RAGBRAI is a week long bike ride across Iowa. (click on the RAGBRAI logo for more information) Personally, I am not sure why anyone would want to do this, but my daughter has a team who is going to do this crazy feat. I was asked to be their 'sag wagon' which basically means I have to (= gets to) drive the car from point A to point B each day, hauling their suitcases and supplies. Once I do that, the rest of the day is mine to enjoy as I wish.
Well, of course, my wish is to get some quality
(and quantity!) reading time in ~ sweet!!
So while I am away from a computer I thought I would schedule some posts to go up each day, giving away books (1 each day of the race) that are sitting on my shelf looking for a good home. I am going to make giveaway International, since I am feeling quite giddy just thinking about all the books I am going to read while on the road. If you win and are in the US, you will get the book featured that day. If you are International, you can select a book, up to $10, from The Book Depository, if they ship to you.

Welcome to Day 6 of the RAGBRAI ride/giveaway extravaganza! I will be offering a giveaway each day while we are at RAGBRAI (7 days = 7 giveaways!)
Be sure to come back each day to enter!
Day 6 ~~Today I am offering a book that I have not read but I know it is loved by tons of people. I just don't think it's my cup of tea. Instead of it just sitting on my shelf, I want to let someone else enjoy it. So today the book is Dangerous Favor by Joyce DiPastena.
Her father has been accused of stealing from the king, an allegation that has reduced her family to poverty. She has one chance to find and marry a man who can help her prove her father's innocence. Lord Therri, heir to a rich barony, has the wealth and connections Mathilde needs to delve into the mysteries of her father's past. Furthermore, Therri embodies all her romantic dreams.
Etienne, the younger son of a disgraced family, has neither wealth nor connections, but is smitten with Mathilde at a glance. She finds the knight intriguing, but believes he is only out to seduce her. While she seeks for a way to win Therri's attention, Etienne tricks her into granting him her favor, an embroidered white ribbon, for a tournament, setting in motion a dangerous chain reaction of events. Can Etienne save Mathilde from a nightmare from her past and prove himself the true hero of her dreams? ~~from Goodreads
