Hot Summer Romance Giveaway Hop

Has it been a hot Summer for you? Temperatures rising? Air conditioning not working hard enough to cool you off? Ice cream melting before you can get home from the store down the street? Sweat dripping the second you step outside?


Has it been a HOT Summer? Sexy bodies on beaches? Tans and tan lines? Tropical drinks during sunsets? Skinny dippin’?

There are many ways to enjoy Summer. Sometimes it’s all about fun. Sometimes there’s the fun of Summer romance… Have you ever have one? Three months of unbridled, uninhibited sex?

I haven’t. Not in years. But it’s fun to read, fun to write about, fun to let yourself go and just live in the moment, and have fun…

Do you have any Summer romances, beach reads that you just love to get lost in? Repeat reads or brand new?

So, now that we’re all thinking about romance, let’s talk about this fabulous hop you’re here to participate in.


We have a couple of amazing grand prizes:

1. Kindle Fire

2. $50 Amazon Gift Card

The way to be considered for one of these prizes is to leave a comment and the big hosts have asked that you leave your email address so that if you’re chosen as a winner, they can contact you.

I will also be giving a prize away. Three actually. Ebooks for that Kindle Fire or for whatever eReader you have…

Arrested Holiday… it’s a cool, snowed in kinda erotic romance with a little kinky play.

Batter Up… a short story with the same characters in Arrested Holiday having some summertime fun at a baseball game.

Keep It Together… bride gets left at the altar, wayward groom’s brother comes and sweeps her off her feet.

Spring Fling Blog Hop

When my friend Selena Blake asked me to participate in her Spring Fling Blog Hop, I just couldn’t say no. So, here we are…

Thinking of Spring for me is…flowers in bloom, mild sunshine, windows open to let in the breezes and fresh air after a Winter of being closed up, freshly mowed grass, bright colors in the closet, and loads of new fruits and veggies…

My two favorite seasons of the year are Spring and Autumn. However, Spring this year has been more like early Summer. It’s been in the 90’s, everything bloomed earlier than normal, and let us not forget those AWESOME allergies! Grins…

But, it is still technically Spring and we’re just gonna go with it!

For the blog hop, I am going to giveaway book which are not my own… 3 of them, in fact.

1. Amanda Usen‘s Scrumptious… Now who doesn’t love a hot man and 5 tiers of cupcakes?

2. Carly Phillips‘ Serendipity… Hot yummy on a motorcycle.

3. Bella Andre‘s The Look of Love…Because we all want that look from the man of our dreams.

I have interacted with all of these women. Amanda is turning into a dear friend. I do writing sprints with Carly and several other authors and they’ve been truly inspirational. And Bella is such a kind and amazing woman who is very open and generous with her time and thoughts even though she’s so incredibly busy.

In one way or another, these 3 authors inspire me, make me laugh, make me smile, and I wanted to share that with you through their books. This is also an international giveaway as I will send the books through

To win: tell me what your favorite thing about Spring is!  (this one IS mandatory to be entered)

And… (the following is not mandatory for entry, but would be AWESOME!)

If you do not follow me anywhere, I’d be really appreciative if you would… You can LIKE my Facebook fan page, FOLLOW me on Twitter, or SIGN-UP for my Newsletter. There’s also, the option of following my blog by email, Linky Friends, and Networked Blogs. All the information is on the sidebar. Look ——> aren’t those coffee cups adorable? (Scroll down to find the Linky Friends, Networked Blogs, and email sign up…)

It would be really awesome if you gave a follow or shout out to Selena Blake, Reading Between the Wines, and Bitten by Paranormal Romance for putting the hop together!

And so, that’s it! I hope you have all kinds of fun during this hop and if you weren’t enjoying Spring before, maybe you will by the time the hop is over.

Drinking and Winning Giveaway Hop!

Given my love of wine, y’all had to know I would want to participate in this! I really enjoy having a glass of wine while making dinner, sometimes while writing in the evenings, or while reading a good book. Thank you to for hosting this pre-party blog hop and then hosting their blogiversary party for all of us to enjoy on March 29th!

My favorite wines are Muscadine wines from Duplin Winery here in North Carolina:

They are sweet, and not acidic. I prefer their reds and blushes rather than their whites. Most white wines tend to be too dry for me, however, I have found that Moscato wines are lovely in their sweetness, in their fruitiness. I buy mine from Trader Joe’s. And I don’t spend a lot of $$$ on wine. Less than $10. However…OMG…I bought what’s called an Eiswein from Trader Joe’s and it was definitely more than $10 and I am so in love with it. It’s sweet and delicate and the grapes are harvested at 17 degress F. When they are COLD! Delicious stuff…

Now, for the giveaway… I am going to give away 3 of any of my backlist along with a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble or Amazon.

If you’d like, feel free to Like my Facebook fan page, follow me on Twitter, follow my blog by any of the three options available, or sign up for my Newsletter. All graphics and icons are on the side bar… These are not required, however if you think you’d like to be kept up to date with me and my books and find out more about me as a writer and a person, then I’d be happy to have you!
