TOP 10 REASONS TO CHECK OUT PASSION’S EXILE BY GLYNNIS CAMPBELL: 

1) The story is an homage to “The Canterbury Tales” (but set in Scotland, with a romance at the heart of it), so if you bluffed your way through the classic in high school, now’s your chance to see what you missed!
2) If you like the humor, romance, and high adventure of the novels of Sarah McKerrigan and Kira Morgan, you’ll LOVE this book by Glynnis Campbell (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)! 
3) Sir Pierce, aka Blade, a self-exiled mercenary, is bitter, hopeless, haunted by his past, and possibly the darkest, most intriguing hero I’ve ever written. 
4) My heroine, sweet, innocent Rose, is Blade’s polar opposite–on the run from an abusive bridegroom and seriously considering a quiet, chaste life as a nun. 
5) Blade has 10 days to convince Rose she isn’t convent material. 
6) Rose has 10 days to convince Blade he’s worthy of redemption. 
7) The abusive bridegroom has 10 days to really eff things up. 
8) Medieval thrills to tide you over until “Game of Thrones” Season 2 begins! 
9) Find out if it’s true that I write “stories to keep you up all night!” 
10) 10 days on the road, 20 pilgrims in tow, a hero with a loyal sidekick, a heroine with a crippled falcon, separate quarters–How will they ever find time alone to, ahem, interact?

Blurb:

Haunted by an unforgivable crime, the once noble swordsman, Sir Pierce of Mirkhaugh, now wanders Scotland as the sword-for-hire known as Blade.  His latest mission—to unmask two assassins among the pilgrims bound for St. Andrews—goes awry when spirited Rosamund of Averleigh joins the entourage, tempting Blade from his solitude and making him believe in redemption.  What he doesn’t know is that Rose is fleeing for her life.  With an abusive bridegroom tracking her, her only hope is to seek refuge as a nun…until she meets Blade, who awakens her passions and destroys her best-laid plans.

  2. Wow, hazards of the road – I had no WiFi in the green room at San Juan Capistrano yesterday, but I’m in Coachella today, so I’m checking in from the hotel. Thanks, everyone, for your great comments – I’m glad you’re excited about Passion’s Exile. If you get a chance, please leave your (hopefully positive) reviews on Amazon and B&N and share with your friends!

  3. Hi! I actually read and enjoyed The Canterbury Tales in school MANY years ago (I’m 58 now). I LOVE Scottish knights… and it appears you even have a bit of paranormal weaved into your story… Thanks for the contest!
    I’d love to read this.

  4. I like reason #1 because book set in scotland. I always like story about scotland. and reason #10 to, you know, when it say ‘How will they ever find time alone to, ahem, interact?’ i want to know to, when will they find time alone?? My crazy guest is in the forest or lake! LOL!!
    Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

  5. I actually found two comments that make me want to read this book:

    5) Blade has 10 days to convince Rose she isn’t convent material.

    6) Rose has 10 days to convince Blade he’s worthy of redemption.

    This is on my TBR list.

  6. @Scarlit: Nerds unite! @Dalila: Very sweet–thanks so much for your loyalty. @Joanne: Have you been to Scotland? @Heather: It sounds like you may have a good story to tell, too. Okay, everyone, I’m heading to San Juan Capistrano–will check back in in a few hours!

  7. I like reason #6! It is always an emotional journey for me when a man needs to find redemption to find love. Or even needs to simply forgive himself to move on. I am married to a disabled veteran who has many ghosts. The challenges men face with guilt and anguish, needing redemption and love always interest me!

    Like this description and will add to my TBR list jist in case I don’t get lucky and win!

  9. Hi Glynnis and Ing!

    Great post Ing, thank you for having Glynnis as your guest today.

    I’ve been reading your books since MY CHAMPION, the first book of THE KNIGHTS OF de WARE, it was a wonderful trilogy!

    If I see your name on a book, it’s going in my bookcase, that alone is reason enough for me.

    I can’t pick just one, soooo…I’m picking all of them!
    The one that really caught my attention though is #3, so I’m going with #3 as the reason I’ll give this book a chance.

    I do like a hero with a lot of baggage and I’d like to know how he and his ‘true love’ find their path to their HEA.

    Thank you for the giveaway!
    Have a great day!

  10. The final sentence says it all “She is married to a rock star, is the proud mom of two grown-up nerds, and lives in a part of L.A. where nobody thinks she’s weird.” I’m a self proclaimed nerd and weird is a compliment in my world 🙂

  11. Hi, everyone! I’m delighted to be the feature author today and hope you’ll give Passion’s Exile a try. I’m currently on the road with my rock star husband, but I’ll be checking in throughout the day. Feel free to ask me any questions!
