This is what the email said:
Chateau de Cheverny
The Leonardo Da Vinci House and Museum.
Da Vinci spent ten years working for the King of France, painting and constructing special architectural projects.
When King Henry II succeeded to the crown in 1547 he gave Chenonceau Castle to his older mistress, Dianne de Poitiers.
Here is the chateau I used in my book. I call it Chateau de Valroux. Honestly I have no idea what its real name is.
Next question for contest 3: Who is poisoned at the beginning of the story?
You can find the answer in the blurb or in the excerpt posted on my website www.monarisk.com
But I really hope that by now you bought my two books, TO LOVE A HERO and FRENCH PERIl (sigh...)
If you like to travel and love to read, come and enjoy my international romances. I will take you around the world through stories that simmer with emotion and sizzle with heat. Meet the spirited heroines and the alpha heroes who share irresistible chemistry.
