Romancing the Hop ~ Lots of Fabulous Prizes on Offer!!!

Welcome to my corner of the Romancing the Hop! It's my first time so please be gentle :-)

To be in with a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your email address. You can go to EACH blog in the hop and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 100 times!

The wonderful Carrie Ann will pick the major prize winners. Good luck! And here are the amazing prizes on offer:

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $130 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: The following Swag Pack!

What do I love about reading paranormal romance? Embracing another world and knowing that, no matter what dangers, hardships and heartache the hero and heroine go through, at the end of the book they are going to end up together and have their happily-ever-after. I am a total sucker for a happily-ever-after! I don't want anyone dying in the final chapter (unless it's the evil villain!!!)

Destined to fall... destined to love

When Aurora Robinson attempts to open a rift between dimensions to embrace her true heritage, an arrogant Archangel is the only one who can save her from the jaws of hell. And while she owes Gabriel her life, she’s determined not to fall at his feet-despite the desire she feels whenever they’re together.

After his wings were brutally destroyed millennia ago, Gabriel has no compassion for humans like those who ruined him and betrayed the ones he loved. But when he inexplicably finds himself defying ancient protocols to rescue a woman from a fate worse than death, he is shocked by the searing attraction he feels for a mortal.
As the ancient forces that seek to punish Aurora for her actions close in, Gabriel offers the tempting woman protection at his private sanctuary. But as they both succumb to their desires, they discover an even deeper connection-one that threatens to consume them.

Paula Martin said...

Must admit I prefer straight contemporary romance with 'real' and often ordinary people that I can identify with.

Christina Phillips said...

Hi Paula, although I prefer a touch of paranormal or fantasy with my romance I do enjoy reading contemporary romance. It all depends on my mood!

Gaele said...

I don't know that I have a favorite - but I keep returning to the saga of Jaime and Claire in Gabaldon's "Highlander" series ... it goes across all of them - with magic and time travel and love being at the center ..
So - that does sort of fit into the paranormal intrigue..

thanks for hosting

JeanMP said...

It depends on my mood, but I tend to gravitate towards romantic suspense and historical romance at the moment.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Patti said...

Thanks for participating! Really like the hop so far!! I love reading, especially romance. I love reading contemporary, historical and erotic romance. I love the happy ending that is garenteed at the end. My favorite book is Lover Mine by JR Ward! I love John Matthew and Xhex. My favorite romantic moment was when my fiancé asked me to marry him! We meant two years ago right around when summer was ending when my friend and I went out for our last big night out before classes started again. I think it is romantic when he brings me flowers because no one else has ever done it! Thanks so much! Hope everyone else is having a great long weekend!!

Favorite genre of romance is a tie between erotic and romantic suspense...just depends on my mood.
For me, romance is all about the trust and respect built between the characters. Since I write BDSM, these elements are very important.
Thank you for participating in the blog hop!

What a hopping blog hop!!!

And you weren't kidding about the fabulous prizes, Christina. They're beauties.

Okay, favourite genre... Well, how could I possibly go past a juicy Australian-set rural romance? But of course everyone loves an angel, and yours looks particularly saucy!

Good luck with the hop. Very excited about Archangel of Mercy. Only a few months to go.

Christina Phillips said...

Why I like Romance Novels….The reason I like Romance Novels so much is because it is one place where I can be anywhere like England, Scotland, Rome, Ireland, or anywhere in the US. I can also be in any time like 1200’s Scotland, 1500’s England, 1900’s Chicago. I can be anyone like a princess, a servant, a werewolf, a duchess, a vampire, or a lost soul. But no matter what I get the privilege and the experience to overcome many different obstacles and find love. I am a mother of three teenagers as well and there are many days when I need an escape and my heart needs a rest from the trials of being a parent and trying to do what is best for everyone but yourself. I have overcome cancer, loss, and financial problems and Romance Books let my heart soar and feel free. Let me tell you in this world, and during this time where life can have so many struggles it is great that you can be, have, and do so many things to find love and romance and still be yourself!

Thanks for being a part of the hop. I hope that you had a great Labor day weekend! I'm a romance junkie, I read historical, paranormal, and many other subgenres. I seem to lean more towards the paranormal tho.
