Guest Post & Giveaway: “Proof of Their Sin” by Dani Collins

Proof of their Sin cover



I’m thrilled to visit with Sasha today, for my official release of PROOF OF THEIR SIN, which is technically my second book, but is also my North American debut.

You see my ‘real’ first book, the one I waited most of my life to sell, came out with Mills & Boon in London this January. Unfortunately for me, Mills and Boon had been working hard to bring their UK and Australia publication dates in line with the North American ones and they did — in February. The month after No Longer Forbidden? came out.

Sasha’s was my very first request from a reviewer. I was thrilled and excited and completely stymied in trying to get her a copy. You should have seen the hoops and barrels. I won’t bore you with the details, but the irony was, in the end she sent me a photo of the book in one of her local stores. So it was available in the West Indies, but not in Canada. (Curse you, international trade agreements. *shakes fist*)

The good news for North American readers is, No Longer Forbidden? will come out as part of a 2 for 1 promotion with my December book, and the stories are linked. So enjoy that when it shows up, but for now I’m thrilled to see PROOF OF THEIR SIN hit the shelves worldwide today (July 1), which you may or may not know is also Canada Day.

Which makes for another reason I’m thrilled to party here with Sasha. With her Mardi Gras (Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago) experience, I know she can do it up right. Parades, fireworks, music. By contrast, us Canadians often need time to warm up (literally) before we loosen up. That’s certainly the problem my heroine, Lauren, faces in PROOF OF THEIR SIN.

Lauren is a ‘good girl’ Canadian from the prairies who married well, yet always carried a torch for her husband’s best friend. Paolo is Italian, need I say more? He swore he’d never touch Lauren despite their nearly impossible to resist attraction. When Lauren’s husband dies, they’re grief-stricken and seek comfort with each other, not expecting passion to flare or for the stork to come nesting.

To celebrate my North American debut, I’ll give away a copy of Proof Of Their Sin to one lucky commenter here. Tell me about your Mardi Gras experience or your favorite way to celebrate. 

Also, if you happen to see PROOF OF THEIR SIN ‘in the wild,’ I’d love you to snap a photo and send it to me through Twitter, Facebook, or my website (see below.) I’ll draw a winner from those entries at the end of July.

Proof of their Sin coverHere’s the blurb for PROOF OF THEIR SIN:

A beautiful mistake…

Pregnant. Lauren Bradley’s heart stops-there’s only one man who can be the father and it’s not her late husband, the man everyone thinks is a celebrated war hero….

Ravaged with guilt at sleeping with his best friend’s wife, Paolo Donatelli closes his heart to Lauren forever. But in nine months’ time, the proof of their incredible night together will be there for the world to see.

Marriage is Paolo’s answer to avoiding more scandal, but it’s Lauren’s worst fear-she still bears the scars from the first time she said I do. Can she trust Paolo enough to reveal the truth?

    Never been to Mardi Gras but my favorite way to celebrate is with family and friends with good food and even better drinks. The book sounds really good.

    • Hi Lori,
      Thanks so much! And I agree, I love to be with family rather than big crowds. I imagine Carnival and Mardi Gras are spectacles that everyone should see once, but I’m a total cryer at parades so maybe not, lol.

  • Evelyn says:

    Haven’t been to Mardi Gras but it is in my bucket list. I like to celebrate very low key just going to dinner and hanging out with friends and family. The one time I went big by celebrating my 40th birthday at a nightclub I ended up spending my time in the bathroom throwing up all the alcohol that I had consumed lol.

    • Hi Evelyn,

      I thought I replied to this, but maybe I wasn’t logged in right. I totally agree with you one the family celebrations. Nightclubs and dancing are great, but yeah, gotta watch how much you drink. It can sneak up on you.

  • Kai W. says:

    i have never been to a Mardi Gras. I usually go to a musical to celebrate. I’m not much for loud noise.

    • Hi Kai,
      I was at an event last night and it got to loud. My husband handed me earplugs and I felt kind of bad for using them, then I noticed a young man of about 20 wearing pink ones 🙂

  • Veronica M says:

    Never really celebrated it to be honest. But if I did, I’m pretty sure there would be a lot of alcohol involved 😛
