Lucky in Love Blog Hop + Giveaway of BETRAYED

Welcome to the Lucky in Love Blog Hop!

 Is love a matter of luck or is it destined in the stars? I love when heroes and heroines are fated to be with each other, no matter how the odds are stacked against them or how much they fight against their attraction towards each other. But although fate might bring them together, in the end it's up to the hero and heroine to take that chance to be with the one they've fallen in love with. I love the crossroads, where the decision has to be made. Will they step forward with the one they love? Or will they turn their back on their destiny?

 BETRAYED, a fantasy historical romance, is my debut release from Ellora's Cave, coming on 20th March. Just leave a comment on my post and you'll be in the draw to win an e-copy of the book as soon as I have my author copies! Over the next couple of weeks I'll be giving away more copies of BETRAYED on my blog tour, so do pop by again!

In 51 A.D., Druid priestess Nimue is injured and enslaved by the hated Roman Legions. Even though she is drawn to her captor, she’s determined to escape and complete her mission for the Briton king and her duty to Arianrhod, the goddess she is bound to.

The tough Roman warrior who captures her is far from the brutal barbarian she expects. His touch inflames her desires and passion burns between them. Though Nimue does not accept her enslavement, her heart surrenders to her enemy. When Arianrhod appears to her in the form of an owl, Nimue knows the union is blessed.

Roman warrior Tacitus is enchanted by the fiery beauty who shows no fear and challenges him at every turn. Though enslaving her goes against his heart, he’s determined to make her his. No woman has ever heated his blood as she does. But when he discovers her true nature as one who actually communes with the gods, his loyalties are torn between his heritage and a woman who could destroy everything he’s ever believed in.

A Romantica® fantasy erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Hi, Christina!

We don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the Philippines --

I think love is a mix of chance and choice.

My husband and I are both born on the same day, on the same year. (He's only an hour older than me. ^_^) That's the luck aspect of it -- and the choice part was when we both agreed to share our lives with each other.

Congratulations on the release of your new book!

Betrayed sounds like a great book and that cover is stunning!

We sort of celebrate St. Patrick's Day. This year we are going to a bit because my sister has two young-ish kids (13 and 8) and she is going to go all out one last time with a feast of green stuff and doing the "American" version of the holiday food and stuff. Just a bunch of fun silly stuff for the kids.

Thank you for the chance to enter :D
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone :)

Betrayed sounds like a a captivating and sizzling read. The blurb definitely grabs my attention.

I don't do anything special for St Patrick's Day except wear a St. Patrick’s Day pin and make corned beef and cabbage for dinner. Since it can take days for the smell to leave the house, we also sometimes go out and pick up a dinner of corned beef & cabbage at the local Irish pub and bring it home. (No muss, no fuss, no smell. LOL)Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

Fate needs a bit of help from lady luck to get people together. After that it's all down to how hard you work at it. Love is never a bed of roses. Unless the thorns are still there. When we love someone they are worth all the work.

We celebrate St. Patrick's day with Guinness and an Irish Breakfast :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Don't really celebrate St. Patrick's Day


Unknown said...

We have great corned beef and sandwiches and chill. Not big on the whole parade and hoopla. Definitely wearing green though…don’t want to get pinched…although a spanking would be a different story!
I have not yet been lucky in love, ie finding my soulmate, but hope springs eternal!
Love teh cover art!! Gonna add to my TBR list!

Tiffany Drew said...

We don't celebrate it, I can never remember when it is and by then it's too late lol. Thank you!


BookLady said...

I celebrate St. Patrick's Day by wearing a little green. Thanks for the giveaway.

Tamara Hoffa said...

I don't celebrate

VampedChik said...

We usually just celebrate it by having dinner with my grandma. This was the first year without her though so we just had dinner on sat evening with the regular family.

Felicia said...

Sometimes we celebrate - my favorite celebration was the first time I tried Guiness Stout at Bennigans! LOL


Krysta B. said...

I think love is a little bit of both fate and chance :)
Thanks for the chance to win. Happy Saint Patty’s Day!

I am lucky in love thanks!

Meghan said...

What a great giveaway hop! I have yet to be lucky in love but I'm working on it. My favorite love book is "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser is amazing and beautiful. I enjoy St. Patty's Day and this year I'm spending it with my best friend. We're going to two Irish Pubs and also some dance clubs. I am also wearing green and am not a fan of getting pinched. I'm not Irish either, but many people think I am because my hair is red, my eyes green and my name is Meghan, but I'm not at all. I won't be telling anybody that, however… let them believe I'm Irish.
Thanks for the giveaway!
