Forever Romance Tour: Secrets of an Accidental Duchess by Jennifer Haymore (Feature/Giveaway)

Good morning lovelies, I hope everyone's weekend is starting out well. I'm happy to be apart of Forever Romances tour for Jennifer Haymore's Secrets of an Accidental Duchess. 

Secrets of an Accidental Duchess
by Jennifer Haymore
ISBN: 9780446573153
Published on: 1/31/2012
With her pale hair and slim figure, Olivia Donovan looks as fragile as fine china, and has been treated as such by her sisters ever since a childhood bout with malaria. But beneath her delicate facade, Olivia guards a bold, independent spirit and the kind of passionate desires proper young ladies must never confess... 
It was a reckless wager, and one Max couldn't resist: seduce the alluring Olivia or forfeit part of his fortune. Yet the wild, soon-to-be Duke never imagined he'd fall in love with this innocent beauty. Nor could he have guessed that a dangerously unpredictable rival would set out to destroy them both. Now, Max must beat a Madman at his own twisted game-or forever lose the only woman to have ever won his heart.

Crystal: Hi Jennifer and welcome to Reading Between the Wines! Can you please share with readers 3 fun facts about yourself that might surprise us?

Jennifer: Thanks so much for having me here!
Hmm, three fun facts:
(1)    I hold a computer science degree from UC Berkeley. How I went from that to being a writer? Well, it’s a LONG story!
(2)    I have three children, and my middle son won the Baseball Pony World Series for 10-year-olds in Texas last summer. It was a great achievement…and surprising! I didn’t expect that my little 4-year-old that I put on a t-ball team on a whim would grow to love the sport of baseball so much.
(3)    I used to be a genealogy addict. Once I found out that I was a direct descendent of King John (i.e. the king during the time of the Magna Carta and the bad guy in Robin Hood) and Edward Longshanks (i.e. the bad guy in Braveheart), I moved on to writing fiction. :D

Crystal: Now please describe your new release, Secrets of an Accidental Duchess, in a tweet (140 characters or less.)

Jennifer: The middle Donovan sister, Olivia, is the subject of a competition of seduction between two wicked lords.
