Happy Valentine’s Day!

How do you celebrate? Do you celebrate? I’ve been participating in a Valentine’s Blog Hop for the last few days and it’s been interesting to read the different responses.

We don’t generally celebrate in our house. It’s just another day to us. As with most holidays though, we don’t go out to dinner. I’ll be making a special dinner tomorrow night: Lobster Mac and Cheese. I have some sweet lobster meat that I’ve been saving for a special occasion and this is it. I will get my husband some sugar-free Oreos (diabetic) and Oreos are his all time favorite and for the kids and I… I’ll be making some fudge cupcakes with homemade buttercream frosting (pink of course with sprinkles). We’ll stay at home, maybe watch a movie or something, all of us, together.

What do you do? Do you cook a nice dinner or go out? Do you plan a fancy dessert? Or what about *whispers* sex? Lots of that going on in your house? C’mon, we’re all friends here… You can tell us.

In case you are new here and didn’t know or in case you aren’t new here but forgot, I have a Valentine’s free read called Committed: An Erotic Valentine’s Tale. Click here and it’ll take you to the page where you can find all the information about it…

Today is the final day to enter the With Love Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! Click the graphic on the sidebar and it’ll take you to the blog post for it which will give you the details of what I’m giving away!

Also, I along with my friend Selena Robins have something new for you that we’ve started. We’re sharing links to one another’s Valentine’s Day posts. If you don’t know her, click on the link below and visit her site and read her post titled ‘Let’s Hear It For The Boys’.

With Love Valentine’s Day Blog Hop

Well, we’re having another blog hop! Are y’all ready to participate? This hop is hosted by and brought to you by The Blog Hop Spot! For more information on the hop and for a full list of all participating authors and blogs, please visit the blog hop event page:  http://thebloghopspot.com/event-page/.

As I’ve been thinking of Valentine’s Day, I have thought about the different people in my life who I feel are special enough to be considered Valentines. Of course there are the normal ones, like my husband and children. But, there are others, as well. Close friends and some of my readers would make the list. I value these people so very much for their constant and never wavering support and shoulders and ears and time and patience and love. I’m sure we all have these kinds of friends in our lives who make our days more special…

When we think of Valentine’s Day, most of us usually think of flowers, candy, cards, balloons, sex 😉 , special dinners or desserts. We don’t have a tradition or particular thing we do for Valentine’s Day. It’s never been important to us in that way, really. However, I am making a nice dinner this year, lobster mac and cheese, a nice salad with homemade dressing, and some sort of dessert, perhaps a sugar-free hot fudge sundae.

Now, I was going to just give a copy of  my book, Twisted Up, but I think I’ll expand the giveaway a little…

Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop

ReadingBetweentheWinesBookClub
 

My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop is hosted by Reading Between the Wines Book Club & As the Pages Turn Giveaway. The hop will run from 12:01 AM February 1st through to 11:59 PM February 5th, 2012.

What better way to celebrate the month of LOVE than with your favorite book boyfriend? Whether you have a valentine or not, the swoon worthy heroes we find in romances can’t be matched anyway! So why not put on those naughty underwear and curl up with one of these steamy reads this year instead? Make your Valentine’s Day perfect by joining the My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop where fellow bloggers offer you the chance to win some of their favorite book boyfriends!

So, who are my book boyfriends? When I think of all the books I’ve read over the years, and we’re talking over 15 years of romance reading, it’s so hard to narrow it down. There are just so many to choose from. However, those who first come to mind:

Jack from Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas
Lord John Blackwood from Dancing At Midnight by Julia Quinn
Morgan MacDonnell from Whisper of Roses by Teresa Medeiros
Dermott Ramsey, Earl of Bathurst from Temporary Mistress by Susan Johnson
Earl of Wick from Her Lord and Master by Thea Devine
Jeremy Gray from Comfort Object by Annabel Joseph
Zsadist from Lover Awakened by JR Ward
All of the Cowboys that Delilah Devlin writes… 😉

These are just a few and I couldn’t begin to go back and list all of my favorites. We’d be here all day. In lists like these, I always feel as though I’m missing someone important… 😉 Which, they all are, yes?

In other words… I. Want. Them. All.

As for what I’m going to be giving away:

1 $15 Gift Card to Amazon.com and one copy of any of my backlist. (US Only)

1 $10 Gift Card to BarnesAndNoble.com and an ebook copy of any ebook of your choice (up to $10) (US Only)

1 $10 Gift Card to Starbuck (US Only)

All you have to do to enter is follow my blog via Networked Blogs (link over on the sidebar) or Like my Facebook Fan Page (click on the Facebook coffee up on the sidebar or click here.) Then leave me a comment here on the blog letting me know you’ve done so along with the name of your favorite book boyfriend and email address.
