Hello, and welcome to the Hot Summer Romance Giveaway Hop!
Welcome to four days of celebrating romance!
Because, you know, romance should be celebrated. In this day and age, where everything is fast and easy, not everyone is willing or able to make the effort needed to find and connect with The One.
Not when The Next One can be right around the corner.
Human relationships have turned into quick, effortless exchanges; we take what’s given, give what doesn’t cost us, and move on. But that’s obviously not enough, or there wouldn’t be so many of us looking to get lost inside an epic/tragic/lustful/witty/inspiring/whatever Romance novel.
I used to believe I couldn’t afford to fall in love. I’d been burned one too many times–and was enjoying myself without romantic attachments anyway, so why bother? It took a relentless romantic, who wouldn’t allow distance or my stubbornness keep him from winning my heart, to open my eyes to what I was missing.
So take the time to live your romance. Whether it’s for a weekend or eternity, it does the heart good to take risks and fall in love. And hey, even if your romance ends up in heartache, at least you’ll have felt the all-consuming need to share yourself with someone who makes you…happy.
As a Greek song says, “The heart always hurts when it grows taller.”
Let your heart grow taller.
For my part, I’m offering up a paperback copy of my Erotic Urban Fantasy novel, Cherry Stem.
Turned at the cusp of a promising career in the adult movie industry, Cherry Stem has to rely on her mesmerizing vampire gaze for her meals and money. With the rent deadline approaching, settling for pocket change isn’t an option, so she reluctantly decides to let tall, dark, and handsome Detective Alex Marsden take her home for the night and fulfill her needs.
Only she gets more than she bargained for.
When Cherry meets Alex, she expects him to be nothing more than another “girl meets boy, girl feeds from boy, girl erases boy’s memories” hook-up. Once missing young women, the vampire council, and her irresistible ex are thrown into the mix though, she realizes nothing is as simple or random as she thought it was.
And Alex is either the biggest gift or the biggest mistake of her un-life.
