Valentine's Day Gift Hop Giveaway

Welcome to the Valentine's Day Gift Hop as we celebrate love, sex, and all things books! Our grand prize will be a Kindle Paperwhite and digital new adult romance basket. Every comment on every blog in the hop will count as an entry toward either of the grand prizes.



I love romance novels off all sorts, give me the sweet young adult books with their first blush of love, the yummy cops and firefighters, delicious Alpha males and naughty erotic reads. 

There are also all those themes, as a youth I was introduced to so many by all the Harlequins I read. Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Enemies  to Lovers - This is when the two people hate each other, or at least they act like it, but all that passion comes to a head in a very different manner. My favorite example of this is in Much Ado About Nothing, Beatrice and Benedict are two of Shakespeare's greatest enemies who are tricked into love!

2. Siblings Best Friend - These are the couples who have known each other for years, seen each other in all those awkward growing moments. They generally have to overcome the siblings objections.

3. Bad Boy and Good Girl - These are the guys you just can not resist, they are not really bad, just rough around the edges. Every good girl has a touch of naughty in her looking to get out. These are pairings that usually turn out to be the best compliments to each other.

So, those are my top three themes, what about you?

  30. I love books but I'm a true lover of audio books with Audible. I would love to win an audio book.
    Also, I've been looking for a blog to give a ACX CODE to for a free audio book of The Sorcery Code. It's written by a wife and husband duo Anna Zaires and Dima Zales. It's totally free and I was given all five codes to give away. All they ask in return is that you get the book and leave a review on Audible. I love their other series The Krinar Chronicles but the Sorcery Code doesn't have the sexual content as their other books. It's quite different. Let me know by emailing me or friending me on GoodReads. I think messaging me on GoodReads will be better.

  38. I'm a PNR gal. Take me out of my head and away from my problems! I will read plain contemporary on occasion, but, to me, it's like over-hearing gossip in the check-out line at Wal-Mart or on Facebook; I want to get away from that. Thanks to every author who can make me forget about laundry, bills, errands, arguments, and appointments- You are my heroes!
