It is release month for Counterfeit Hope, and to kick it off, I’ve gathered all the giveaways I know of with opportunities to win a copy of Counterfeit Hope or Counterfeit Love. There is even a way for you to email me if you’ve preordered a copy so that you can get some free preorder goodies mailed to you. Looking for a free copy to read if you don’t win? I have a way for you to do that below.

First, what is Counterfeit Hope about?

Trapped by their pasts, is there hope for a future?

When Secret Service operative Andrew Darlington is brought in to support a US Marshal case involving counterfeiters in rural Indiana, he thinks it’s simply the next rung on his climb to the top of his career. But liars can only climb so high–and Andrew is keeping a dangerous secret he doesn’t ever want to get out. When he clashes with the criminal family that took over the town of Landkreis and killed the Marshal he was sent to assist, his past life is in danger of being exposed.

Widow “Lightning Lu” Thorne has only one goal: escape the clutches of the Thorne family with her son. Her decision to be an informant and testify against the Thornes looked like the perfect answer. Until the Marshal ended up dead. Now the tether keeping her tied to her felonious family is tightening, and a forced marriage to someone else in the Thornes’ clutches threatens to kill any hope of escape.

Andrew and Lu find themselves on the same team–unwillingly. They each believe the other to be the enemy to their future plans. And even if they could learn to work together, the secrets they hold could shatter all hopes and dreams. Despite the encouragement of the local preacher, they’re not even sure God can be trusted–much less other humans. Can either of them escape their past–and the family that is willing to kill their own when they smell betrayal?

Libraries are AMAZING places. I recommend you request your local library purchase the book in print or digital format. Most libraries have access to programs like Hoopla or Libby and are willing to purchase at least an e-copy. You can visit your library’s website or call them to ask how to request a book. My library asks for the following information, so I’m pasting it here to make it easier on you to request a copy. Unless you have a subscription to somewhere that allows access to multiple books, any other free copies you come across digitally are likely to be pirated. Please don’t be a pirate. Let me know if you find one somewhere, so I can report it. Let me also know if you have your library order it! I’d love to be able to put pins on my map to show that my book has traveled to all 50 states and even out of the country. 🙂
