It would be smashing if some of my fellow Australasian could pop by my blog and meet Angi Morgan, my friend and Harlequin Intrigue author. She’s celebrating the Australasian release of her latest book, DANGEROUS MEMORIES. RT Book Reviews gave her book 4.5 stars and it’s one of my MUST READS for 2013… he’s giving away a copy of her book to one lucky commenter. Come say hello and give her a fabulous downunder greeting…
