As we mentioned to our Take Home Tuesday devotees, our weekly giveaway feature on the blog will forevermore be posted on the happiest, most wondrous day of the week -- Friday. Why? Well because Fridays are days of celebration, and we'd rather go off into the weekend with a bang.
In conjunction with the giveaways, we will post au courant links from around the web. So it's also a good place to catch up on your news.
The rules of Freebie Friday are the same as Take Home Tuesday -- well sometimes. Leave a comment, and we'll draw a winner at random.

So the first person to answer the following correctly wins and advanced reading copy of LORDS OF PASSION by TKA client Kate Pearce, along with Virginia Henley and Maggie Robinson.
Question: What book does the following first line belong to?
"Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show."
