333 thoughts on “The Princess Plan Giveaway

  1. Now that the Queen has a vacancy in her family (poor Andrew!)…
    I think she and I could swap family horror stories over a pot or two!
    BYOB – Bring Your Own Biscuits

  2. I would invite Jude Devereaux to tea. She was the first author that I read. The book was A Knight In Shining Armor. I fell in love with historical fiction, time travel and romance in that one book. It took me away to Scotland and England and various other places. I felt like I was right there standing there with the characters. Hence, began my love of reading.

  3. Dame Judy Dench. Loved her in As Time Goes By, even before she was in the Bond movies. She is such a wonderful actress. Dame Helen Mirren, another great actress. and to round it out for the ladies dame Maggie Smith. I’d also invite Benedict Cumberbatch and Hugh Jackman

  4. My grandma, she has been gone for over 40 yrs and I miss her dearly. I would love to sit down with her and listen to all her stories again.

  5. There’s 6 teacups, so in addition to my husband and myself, we can have four guests: actor/director Kenneth Branagh, actor Helen Mirren, makeup artist Rick Baker, and historical costumer Bernadette Banner. I think we’ll have a really great conversation!

  6. My Mom. She died in 2000 and I miss her so much. Runner-up is Jane Austen the best of the original Regency Romance writers.

  7. I don’t know. Not many men read romance novels. I’m sure there are a lot of lovely, lonely lady readers for you to have a tea party with.

  8. Julia London, Kathryn LeVeque,Cheryl Bolen, Victoria Alexander,
    Stephanie Laurens, and others.

  9. What a lovely tea set! I love to have tea parties with my daughter. She’s 28 now and we still love spending that time together.

  10. I would invite Oprah. Anything we would talk about would be interesting, from current events, to fashion, to books.

  11. I would invite my grandma who passed away 6 years ago so my daughters could meet their great grandma.

  12. My daughter and granddaughter would be my guests! We are all readers and can discuss our latest reads!

  13. A table full of my favorite authors. Julia Lonondon, Linda Howard, janet Evanovich, Emily Kimelman, Margaret Maron, Kristi Belcamino, Sandra Brown, Catherine Coulter, Diana Palmer, Carly Phillip, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Elizabeth Lowell, Karin Slaughter, Vickie Lewis Thompson, Kate White, Robyn Carr, J. A. Janice, Faye Killerman. Tea set not large enough for this group so I would like the gift card.

  14. My Mom who passed away 2 years ago. For years every Friday night most of my sisters and I plus our children would gather at my Mom’s house after work for a tea party. It was a time for us all to sit down, relax and enjoy each other’s company and have a few laughs at the end of each week. I would give anything to be able to have one more tea party with my Mom.

  15. I would adore having tea with organ transplant surgeon Dr. Joe Scalea M.D.
    He is creative, artistically talented, a gifted teacher.

  16. I would like to invite any lonely ladies to have tea with, am I the only guy on this contest?

    • I don’t know. Not many men read romance novels. I’m sure there are a lot of lovely, lonely lady readers for you to have a tea party with.

  17. Duchess Kate. She is so poised and well spoken, I feel like getting a chance to speak with her about world issues would really broaden my views. I would also invite Oprah, for many of the same reasons. Ellen DeGeneres could bring a much needed levity to the party as well.

  18. I’d invite George Clooney. Yes, partly because he’s handsome. But more because I love his dry wit and sense of humor and I think he would make the tea party most entertaining!

  19. I’d invite my mother. She’s deceased now, but since we’re wishing…. and I’d love to win this tea set! Enter me in the giveaway, please.

  20. Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge if only to ask candidly, “What is it really like to go from being yourself to always being ‘ON'” Her public personna vs her true fun loving self.

  21. I would invite my husband first and then, if they were still alive, my mom and Princess Diana.

  22. I would invite Barbra Streisand as i have loved her for many years. I just love the way she sings and that she never chged her appearance!

  23. I would love to invite Lord Byron (though impossible) so that I could see if he was really as good looking as reported to be and have him read to me “She Walks in Beauty”.

  24. I would invite the Obama’s. I thing they are two of the neatest people and would love chatting with them.

  25. If I could ask anyone in the world to tea the first woman I would ask to tea I would ask Ruth Bader Ginsburg, My late grandmother Rose, Michelle Obama, Bette Midler, Sam Elliott, Grace Burrowes, J, K, Rowling, Lynsay Sands, Paula Quinn and of course you. I know, I would need a larger tea set but I am sure I could always find other tea cups to fill with tea because I have so many people I have met, wanted to meet, read or others I can’t think of because I am at an age where I have met or wanted to meet, so many people I have come to love.

  26. I would invite PJ Harvey, my favorite musician, and Joyce Carol Oates, one of my favorite authors, both of whom seem a little kooky and would be perfect party guests 🙂

    (Thanks for the chance to win!)

  27. I’d choose my sister to join me. I don’t see her very often, she is so busy, and to have her to myself for a tea party would be a luxury for me, and for her!

  28. A selection of authors and readers. Let’s just cap 5 authors. Although I would more likely invite 20!
    Julia London (of course), Anya Wylde, Annie Seaton, Jamie Davenport, Angie Fox
    Some readers:
    Peggy from MS
    Leila from Chicago
    Vanessa, Lisa, & Froggy in PN
    Wendy in Or
    I am sure I know another dozen plus – but these are some of my favorite online reader friends that would REALLY appreciate this.

  29. Mary Berry! Err… more like I wouldn’t mind to be invited to tea by herself, lol. Always drooling whenever Ms. Berry prepared tea party (on tv).

  30. Julie Andrews and my 33 year old daughter who adores her even though she’s not really Mary Poppins.

  31. I would love to invite Chris Hemsworth. He is my favorite actor and I would love to spend some time just getting to know him.
    Thank you for the awesome giveaway ❤

  32. I would love to have tea at my party with Queen Elizabeth of England. Of course, I would be so tongue-tied I probably would not be able to carry on a conversation

  33. I would invite Sandra Bullock, she seems pretty down to earth. Then I could get the “tea” on how it was working with Keanu Reeves! 😁

  34. Wow This was a hard question to answer. Since it’s a tea party I would invite the ladies from the View. Imagine sitting around a table and being able to talk about anything with them.

  35. Who would I like to have tea with? If it is someone from the past, I think it would be Marie Curie. First woman to be a Nobel Prize winner, only woman to win twice, brilliant scientist. If it is someone from the present, I would like to have tea with a group of my favorite authors, so that I could pick their brains about their characters and story lines.

  36. My female relatives! We are spread out over several states and it would be nice to all gather together.

  37. My mother and sisters. There were 5 of us girls but my middle sister passed away 15 years ago. I would dearly love to have tea with her. My mom and sisters used to have tea parties all the time.

    • Congratulations, Earlene!

  44. I would love to invite Kristen Bell to my tea party. She seems like such a nice person who would be a lot of fun.

  51. Hmmmm… Would love to have Keanu Reeves as my tea time guest with Aerosmith ( Yeah, baby, the whole band) playing live for us.

    • I would invite Queen Eluzabeth : I would love hearing all about her life . What it’s like bring royalty ( the behind the scene )

  52. As I’ve never had the chance to meet author Grace Burrowes yet I believe she would be awesomely interesting to visit with. I have chatted with several great authors at the HRR (including you) so that would be my choice this time.

  53. I would like to have tea with Monty Don the famous Britiah gardner. He seems like such a pleasant person and I do truly live plants

  54. I would invite my mother. She has been gone for eleven years now but I still miss her.

  55. Both sets of grandparents. I never got to meet my paternal grandparents. They died before my parents met.

  56. Agatha Christie. I have read all her Hercule Periot & Miss Marple mysteries. I loved the time periods of the stories & would have liked to visit St. Mary Mead. I would have liked to sit down with her & just visit & hear about her life & how she came up with these two characters.

  57. I would invite the author Jenna Blum because I love her books and I simply adore her. She is one of my favorite people on this planet.

    I’d like to invite my maternal grandma, I didn’t meet her very much before she died when I was little, and my Mom always tells me stories of her. I’d live to have a cup to tea to hear more of them and my Mom’s childhood in the country.

    No, if it were someone ‘famous’ I’ love to have tea with the women in English royalty (the Queen, Kate and Meghan). I’d love to hear their side of royalty and I’d feel so fancy! <3

    Thanks for the chance.

  62. Sorry, forgot to answer the question. lol
    I would invite my 4 young granddaughters, they haven’t had the privilege of tea parties like we used to have!

  63. I would invite Donna Hutto Edwards, wife of John Bel Edwards, and my mother to the tea party, Donna because she actively promotes education and care of children and my mother because of my love for her.

  64. If I could invite anyone to tea I would invite some of the active duty service men or women and Thank them for there service ,

  65. I would love to win these, my Republican Club has a Lincoln Day Tea honoring this President and it would be fun
    to bring them.

  72. I think for sure it would be Michelle Obama. I would love to meet her in person, she seems so smart and gracious and kind. I think tea with Mrs. Obama would be entertaining, educational, and life-changing.

  73. If I could bring anyone in the world to a tea party it would be my Dad. He was brought up the British way and enjoys his tea and scones.

  74. If I can invite anyone – living or dead – Thomas Jefferson, Queen Elizabeth, Walter Cronkite, Agatha Christie, Martha Washington, Elizabeth Taylor and Peter O’Toole and Sean Connery.

    I believe the conversations would be fascinating. Martha,Thomas, Elizabeth and Walter could talk about world issues, past and present. Agatha, Elizabeth, Peter and Sean could entertain with talk of entertainment. And all in all, I believe it would be lively.

  75. i would have a tea party with my best friend becky, who lives on the other side of the country. i miss her.

  76. I think I would love to invite Michelle Obama. Not for political reasons, but because she is so down to earth, intelligent, a great sense of humor and a kind heart. I think the conversation would be light and enjoyable. She could also bring her friend Ellen and the party would really be a “hoot”.

  77. I would invite the Queen of England. She has lived through so many exciting/interesting times, it would be wonderful to hear her perspective.

  102. These cups and saucers are so delicate and just beautiful. How perfect for inviting a few neighbors/friends over for tea. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  103. I would invite my 85 year old mom. She has had a rough year. Her eyes, several falls. She deserves to sit down and relax. Drink some tea and have some pastries. She has always waited on everyone else. Now it’s het turn to be waited on.

  104. I would invite my Aunt Renee to my tea party. She’s only 6 years older than me and we would have so much fun having a tea party again 🙂

  105. Pope Francis would be my first choice. To talk and gain some wisdom. You of course!! and Nora Roberts my other favorite author to talk about your creative processes.

  106. Wow that’s hard. So many wonderful people including incredible authors. With my husband being English and myself never been to England I would love to have tea and biscuits with the Queen. Thank you for this truly remarkable chance.

  110. Thank you for this amazing opportunity! Ooh, this is a tough one! I think I’d love to have an author that I admire for tea. Maybe Lynsay Sands?

  115. I would invite my nieces. I never seem to have enough time to spend with them so a chance to sit and connect would be wonderful!

  116. I was pleasantly surprised to see the email that “The Princess Plan” was on my kindle. I can’t wait to read it. If I could choose anyone in the world to tea, it would be Megan Markle. I just want to give her a hug.

  117. My friends from nursing school, we often like to get together to have tea. These special cups fit for a princess would make our tea party extra special.

  118. I would invite my aunt and grandmother, because I moved to the other side of the country three years ago and we haven’t been able to do birthday tea parties since! I miss our old tradition!

  119. I would love to have a tea party with Mrs. Trump. I would like to get to know her. Thanks for the chance!
