Avon Books offers readers a chance to be whisked away to historic London in celebration of the publication of MY AMERICAN DUCHESS by Eloisa James and THE ROGUE NOT TAKEN by Sarah MacLean

NEW YORK, NY, February 10, 2016 –Romance readers who have dreamed about going on a grand adventure, like in the rollicking road-trip romp THE ROGUE NOT TAKEN by Sarah MacLean, or who have imagined themselves in the glittering ballrooms of London, just as an American miss finds herself in MY AMERICAN DUCHESS by Eloisa James, now have an opportunity to live those dreams. This February, Avon Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, teams up with Design Hotels™, Savoteur, and BookingBuddy to give one lucky reader the chance to experience the best of two of the most highly-anticipated romance novels of the season with a marvelous London getaway.

Just as romance novels allow readers to escape from the everyday, the Love in London Sweepstakes will whisk the winner to another world. Avon Books, known for its London-set romance novels, and its partners are offering one winner $1000 toward airfare to jet across the pond for a two-night stay in the Charlotte Street Hotel, right next to trendy Soho and London’s theatre district. With colorful rooms themed around the Bloomsbury Group of fashionable intellectuals in early 20th-century London, the Charlotte Street Hotel makes for a charming—and literary—resting place. Fancy tea and crumpets before a whirlwind day of touring? Each morning the winner will be treated to a delicious English breakfast at the hotel. And when not exploring the historic streets of London, the winner can curl up with signed copies of both THE ROGUE NOT TAKEN and MY AMERICAN DUCHESS.

Both James and MacLean find London, with its storied history and romantic beauty, the perfect place to set their novels and hope the winner will be inspired by it as well.

“Last year I wrote MY AMERICAN DUCHESS while living in Nottinghill, London,” James said. “It was marvelous to wander the streets of the city that I was writing about.  I’m so happy about Avon’s fantastic offer to send a reader to one of the most romantic, historical and written-about cities in the world!”

“London is my absolute favorite city in the world–the place that has inspired every one of my books,” MacLean said. “It’s filled with stories, from the centuries-old townhouses in Mayfair to the well-worn cobblestones on the banks of the Thames. And that’s all before the promise of a rogue not taken waiting around the next corner!”
