Help Support Egyptian Author Olivia Gates on her Release Day

This came to me from my friend Deb Marlowe who got it from Bonnie Vanak. Please feel free to copy and paste it in your blog or wherever, since Olivia is unable to access the internet during the unrest in Egypt.
My friend Bonnie Vanak (who writes Egyptian-set historicals as well as wonderful Nocturnes!) alerted me to the plight of Harlequin author, Olivia Gates. Here's the info from Bonnie's blog:

As you know, protests are taking place in Egypt and the government has shut down internet communication. Author Olivia Gates, who lives in Egypt, has a February 1 release by Harlequin Desire called To Tempt a Sheikh. We'd like to get out the word about her book since Olivia cannot.

Let's support an author who cannot access the internet to promote her book.

To Tempt a Sheikh by Olivia Gates

He rescued hostage Talia Burke from his royal family's rival tribe and swept her into his strong embrace. But Prince Harres Aal Shalaan soon discovered there was more to the brave beauty than he knew. Talia held information vital to protecting his beloved kingdom…and she had every reason not to trust him.

Marooned together at a desert oasis, Talia couldn't resist Harres. Yet even as his sizzling seduction entranced her, his loyalty to his family and country would always make them enemies. Falling for the sheikh would be her heart's greatest mistake…but she feared it was already too late….

In stores February 1!

Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Books A Million and bookstores everywhere. Also available at eharlequin both in print and as an ebook.

  1. Just stumbled across your site and love it! Being an author myself I love that you're doing something like helping out a fellow writer get her work out there with all of the upheaval happening in Egypt. Posting on my FB and twitter!

  2. Thanks, Sable! It seemed like a good idea. In fact, I can say I've now found another author to read, myself.
