A New Contest - The Reluctant Heiress

I think it's time for another give-away. Don't you?

I've been doing a lot of reading over the summer and stumbled across The Reluctant Heiress by Eva Ibboston. I enjoyed The Countess Below Stairs and thought I'd try this one. I really enjoyed it. It's an easy read but it's fun.
Now, it does mention many operas in it that I recognize, maybe that's why I like it. The characters perform The Magic Flute by Mozart and mention the Queen of the Night's famous aria, Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen (Hell's vengeance boileth in mine heart). It's obnoxiously high, and I have performed it before in a recital! I LOVE that piece. It's technically challenging, passionate, and oh, so much fun!
So to qualify, leave me a comment telling me you follow my blog (make sure you really do follow me) and tell three people about Wednesday Romances! That's it! The contest will close September 19th at midnight MST. I'll choose the winner on the next day. Good luck! And happy kisses!

Being an heiress in 1920s Austria with nothing but a broken-down castle to your name and nary a penny in your purse could be frustrating for anyone but the Princess Theresa-Maria of Pfaffenstein. “Tessa,” however, is thrilled with her situation, as it allows her to concentrate on her love of the arts—and no one in the Viennese opera company need know that their delightful and charming under-wardrobe mistress is really a princess. But when the dashing self-made millionaire Guy Farne arrives at the opera in search of suitable entertainment for his high society guests, Tessa realizes that there may be more to life—and love—than just music. But while the attraction between them in undeniable, Guy’s insufferable snob of a fiancée only solidifies Tessa’s determination to keep her true identity a secret. Yet, after a chance meeting with the handsome Englishman, Tessa’s reserve begins to melt, and she starts to wonder if it’s not too late for a fairytale ending…
