Shameless Giveaway Hop

UPDATE: Winners announced!

We decided to do this Hop, to celebrate adult books, and by adults I mean steamy books. So I’m giving away two of my favorite erotic romances:

Broken by Megan Hart

This book has a lot of sex, every chapter, I think, has at least a sex scene. But the story is complex and deep. Sadie’s husband has been paralyzed for several years, so their life isn’t what it used to. I’m not just talking about their sex life, although that one is gone, but their whole dinamics radically changed. Her husband is frustrated and angry, she is frustrated and angry, and even though they love each other, all those frustrations and anger have taken its toll (I'm repeating myself, I know!).

One day Sadie meets Joe. This guy is dreamy, but he’s also a bit of a player. They strike an unlikely friendship and instead of talking about everything and anything, like friends do, every month, when they get together, he tells her a story about his latest sexcapade. Every chapter starts something like this: Today my name is Meg… And so Sadie narrates us Joe’s story by putting herself in his latest conquest role.

Their lives are forever changed by this because Sadie is starting to realize everything she’s missing, her sadness and frustrations becomes revelion, but she loves her husband so she can’t leave him. 

Joe is an interesting character and just as complex. We don’t get to actually see into his head, but little by little we get to know him and we realize, just like Sadie does, that he’s more than he seems.

Sadie’s husband is another important and complex character. This isn’t an easy read, and it’s quite the bittersweet story, but if you aren’t squeamish about the sex, then it’s a must read. It’s gritty, passionate and romantic, painfully real and just plain awesome.

Broken by Megan Hart
Spice. May 1, 2007

So there, this is the first price. If you live in the US or Canada you can choose between the paperback version and the electronic one. If you are an international reader I’m afraid you can only choose the electronic one (Kindle, Nook, or EPUB) I’m sorry about this but the book isn’t available on The Book Depository.

Liberating Lacey by Anne Calhoun.

The story is about Lacey. Her marriage is finally over after years of stale living. Her life was boring, her husband was boring and her sex life was boring. One day she meets Hunter, a young cop who is everything her husband wasn’t. Young, attractive, caring and hot. They have a one night stand, than quickly becomes an affair and then something more. But there are so many differences between them, age, background, work, money, that how can they make it work?

Again, this story has lots of sex, but this is how erotic romance should be. Lots of heart and character development. There’s nothing porny about this book. Lacey and Hunter are scarred characters with lots of issues and insecurities, but also with a lot of good qualities and love. Their relationship is a bit of a struggle and it seems like there’s a huge power imbalance between them, but is nothing like that. I just loved this book and this is another must read author.

Liberating Lacey by Anne Calhoun
Ellora's Cave. January 22, 2010.

This is the second price. Liberating Lacey is available from the Book Depository, so everyone can win this as long as they ship to your country or if you prefer the electronic copy.

So there, two great reads that I think a fabulous prices. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, let’s celebrate steamy stories! There’s nothing tacky about these books and you might learn a thing or two...

For a chance to win just leave a comment telling us about your favorite steamy read. It doesn’t have to be an erotic romance, just a book whose love story is so passionate that makes it hot. I have read books that only have kissing in them and are quite hot. I think it’s more about the characters than about the number of sex scenes. So tell us about your favorite so we can add it to our TBR pile!

One last thing, if you are an international reader and don’t have an e-reader, let me know so I only add your name to the Liberating Lacey draw. 

  • Due to the nature of the books you must be at least 18 years old to participate.
  • Contest open internationally but please remember that some of the books have restrictions (see notes in red).
  • Ends on Jan 27th at midnight, so you have until then to enter.
  • Winners will be chosen using random.org and announced here and through email, and will have 72hrs to respond.
  • Entries must have an email address to be valid.

Thank you so much to my co-host Jen over at Red Hot Books, and Michelle over at Michelle's Book Blog. Don't forget to visit their awesome blogs!

Because this is a Hop here is a list of all the participating blogs (thank you guys for making this hop possible and for your support):


  1. Wow, both books sound hot! I would like to read either one!

    I used to read alot of Christine Feehan books, and I just loved her Carpathians! They would find their 'mates' for life and just latch on. The steamy scenes were so hot, and they were the kinds of books I could read again and again. Something about that visceral, very primal connection that just set my teeth on edge!

  2. I can't say favorite..it's too hard, but I will say the steamiest book I have read lately has been Lady of the Drake...that was a I need to be in an air-conditioned room read...lol


  3. Broken by Megan Hart looks very interesting. I kind of like trying new authors, even if they are on the steamier side.


  4. Wow they both sound pretty good! I can't say that I really have a favorite because I've read so many steamy reads!

    However I think one of steamiest books I've read so far would have to be The Heart of War by Lisa Beth Darling.

    There were quite a few decent sex scenes in this book and as the book went on it became less and less about the attraction and the sex between the two main characters and more about their relationship and their fight to remain together!

    This book was both one of the steamiest and one of the most well written books that I've read in a long time!


  5. My friend loved broken and I've been meaning to read it. One of my fave steamy reads is after the night by Linda Howard. An old one but so good. The have a love hate thing going on. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Thanks you for this great giveaway, i really would like to win liberating lacey and since i don't have an ereader it's the one for me too^^, i'm international

    as for the book that was a steamy read for me^^ the night huntress serie by Jeaniene Frost ^^;; ( bones can be and act so hot)

    again thank you

    all the best


  7. Great giveaway! I could always use a hot steamy book!

  8. Thanks for the give away I love hot books!
    kayla.s.graham at gmail dot com

  9. Steamiest book for me would have to be one of the Black Dagger Brotherhood books, probably Lover Awakened.

  10. I forgot to mention the steamiest book! Tessa Dawns Blood Curse series! Love them!

  11. Fantastic, I think the Shameless Giveaway Hop is a fantastic idea to get more people reading!!
    I have so many favorites but I'll pick a sort of hidden gem... its a short story by JR Ward, called The Story of Son... if you haven't read it, search it out and give it a read. Happy reading every one!

    1. Hi Nancy!

      If you come back please hit reply and leave your email, otherwise I won't be able to contact you if you win!

      Happy reading to you too, and thanks for stopping by!

  12. I love Laura Leigh's Nauti series! Very hot!


  13. Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews. I think it just has one sex scene which isn't very long or detailed. It's just that the two characters have finally put everything aside and admitted they wanted each other, had feelings for each other after three previous books. It was so satisfying.


  14. One that always pops into my head is Bind Me by Stacey Kennedy. Hot!!! Thanks for hosting and the great prize!

    Liz @ Fictionalcandy
    email: liz@fictionalcandy.com

  15. Both books look really good. Always like to read new authors that are new to me.

    skpetal at hotmail dot com

  16. The steamiest book for me is Dark Lover by J. R. Ward! It's was my very first adult novel read and the reason why i got hooked reading Adult Fantasy!
    Thanks for this giveaway!


  17. I love new books! diannaandpaul@yahoo.com

  18. There is a book called "dark haven" that i really enjoyed. it was pretty steamy for me. i do also love the black dagger brotherhood books.

    Terri M

  19. My fave eroticas are Shayla Black's Wicked Lover series or Cherise Sinclair's Masters of the Shadowlands!

    alltherhage AT gmail DOT com

  20. there are so many steamy books that I love, but I will give you the most recent... I just finished Archangel's Blade by Nalini Singh, so hot! It's not overly erotic, but the love story is astounding and deep, and so sexy! Thanks for the contest :) Book Savvy Babe booksavvybabe at gmail dot com

  21. Lora Leigh's August Men is one of my favorites and I love Siren's menage line

    1. Hi Liz!

      You forgot to leave your email and I can't find it on your profile, if you read this just hit reply and leave your email so I have a way to contact you in case you win!

  22. I love Dana Marie Bell's Halle/puma series!
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    aimeelavalle (@) gmail (dot) com

  23. My favorite steamy read is actually the series of BDB... can't choose just one:)


  24. I just read Private Games by Tawny Taylor and it was pretty steamy.

    seriousreader at live dot com

  25. I read the reviews and they sound really good!Thanks for the giveaway! Count me in!


  26. Wow! Both books sound really good! Thanks so much for this giveaway!


  27. Changing the Game by Jaci Burton was pretty hot. Thanks for the giveaway.


  28. Tough call because I read a lot, as do many of the folks who have commented. My favorite all time seduction scene would have to be "Underfoot" by Leanne Banks. It was one of the first romance novels I had ever read, but it's one of those books that sticks with you. You are right, too, that a good seduction doesn't have to be gratuitously sexual--the scene that sticks in my mind certainly wasn't.

    1. Hi seiseman!

      I'm still smiling thanks to the awesome comment from yesterday! Are you participating in the giveaway? If so, please leave an email, otherwise I won't be able to contact you if you win.

      See you around!

  29. My favorite steamy read is Coming Undone by Lauren Dane. It is awesome. Thanks for the giveaway.

  30. I would love to enter this (have been to a few hops already), but can't seem to leave a comment on poison rose's blog. It won't let me do anything. But thanks for hosting this hop!

  31. Tough call but I would say the recent steamiest read for me is Their Virgin's Secret by Shayla Black, a scorcher.

    Thanks for offering the giveaway

    emily.heisler @ gmail.com

  32. thank you for the chance at such a great giveaway and for hosting this blog hop. i would love to have either of these books, they sound wonderful. right now i am a huge fan of anything by Delilah Devlin,Stacey Espino or Sophie Oaks. it doesn't seem to matter how many times i have read it, i still enjoy the book. i have also just discover Virna DePaul's PsyOps series. i guess that would cover my favorites for now. of course that could change in an hour if i find an author i like. :)


  33. Steamiest book I've red must be Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning!


  34. The most steamiest book I've read that I've really enjoyed is Animal Attraction by Charlene Teglia. It's so hot I just never read anything like it!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

  36. There are so many steamy books that I love that I can not pick just one! More mainstream, but very hot, Larissa Ione's stories are great. Some of my fave erotic authors would include Cherise Sinclair, Kallypso Masters, Eve Langlais, Megan Hart, the Smutketeers, Naughty Nine, and the Down Under divas. There are so many more great authors too!
    Both books look great. The Megan Heart I have not read and would love to, along with Anne Calhoun's.
    manning_j2004 at yahoo dot com

  37. A couple of steamy, and I mean steamy, authors that I like to read are Victoria Blisse and Lucy Felthouse. You'll need to take an ice bath to cool down.

  38. Wow, these stories sound really good, I will admit I love steamy stories.
    My favorite hands down is the Night Huntress series!

    areeths at new dot rr dot com

    geschumann at live dot com

  40. Oh my gosh, where do I even start with favorite steamy reads?? There's just so many!!! I guess I'll start with favorite steamy authors, how's that? Love Cherise Sinclair, Joey W. Hill, Jodi Redford, Cari Quinn, Roz Lee, Eve Langlais, Trista Ann Michaels, Delilah Devlin, Shayla Black, Kallypso Masters, Melinda Barron, and I know I could seriously go on and on!! :)

    Thanks so much for the fantastic giveaway opportunity!!


  41. Hmm I don't even know how to pick my favorite I love them all ;) My first steamy read was Jayne Rylon though so I will have to say her :) Broken by Megan Hart looks amazing thanks for the chance to win!


  42. Agreeing with Elise. I need to go back and reread some of the Carpathian books. So good! Also agreeing with Savannah... Rylon writes some HOT stuff. Whew.

    Don't enter me, btw. I'm giving away stuff on my own blog. :-)

  43. I loved bear, Otter and the Kid by TJ Klune. It is a m/m romance that pulls you into the story, and make you angry, fall in love and cry. A deep emotional read, and I know if you love them you'll love it.
    Thank you for being part of the blog hop tour and of the giveaway!

    pommawolf @hotmail.com

  44. Both of these sound terrific! I have a Kindle so count me in for both please!

    Thanks for the chance and happy reading!
    mmafsmith at gmail dot com

  45. One of the first romance books I ever read was one of the most passionate...The Eagle and the Dove by Ruth Freeman Soloman


  46. I'd pick "Liberating Lacey" if I won. :)

    Have a great weekend!

    elvenspirit at gmail dot com

  47. I think Jeaniene Frost writes some pretty passionate love scenes for Cat and Bones :) Please count me in for Liberating Lacey.


  48. iv heard so much about megan heart, thanks for the chance of winning.


  49. Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

    My steamy book would probably be Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews.

    I am International and don't have an e-reader so please enter me for the paperback from TBD.

  50. Fantastic blog hop. I'm finding so many new authors to read. Thanks for participating and offering such a great giveaway! I would love to read Broken by Megan Hart.

    As for the steamiest books I've read, that's tough. The first were Rachel Vincent's Pride series and then Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series. (Maybe it's a Rachel thing!) The characters' growing attraction to each other and inherent sensuality helped build a strong, romantic relationship without being overtly sexual for the sake of being sexual. And when then the sex did happen, WOW, do the sparks fly!

  51. oops, forgot my email!


  52. One of my recent reads was Montana Fire by Lisa Jackson.


  53. Those two books sound great, I have to add them to my TBR list. One steamy read I loved was The Harlot, a good story line but plenty of hot sex.

    Thanks for joining in the fun blog hop!
    eyesofblueice (at) gmail (dot) com

  54. Thank you for the giveaway! I love all books by Lorelei James. They're very hot and will fog up your windows! ;)

    claudigc at msn dot com

  55. I love just about everything Lauren Dane has written. Dana Marie Bell writes the cutest, snarkiest shapeshifters ever. Love Bear Necessities by her. And Lorelai James writes about places I have actually been to, so her books about the McKay family are right up there.

  56. Whoops. Forgot the email address.

  57. My favorite steamy read is anything by JR Ward (obviously I'm not the only one...) Love BDB books and the Fallen Angels books, she writes the sexiest sex scenes!

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  58. I have to have a favorite....man if only you saw what was in "BOB" (my kindle)...LOL....I really have to I don't have a favorite...I could list more of who I don't like easier!!!!!!
    Only because instead of writing a great sex scene into the story they FORCE it...then it just SUCKS!!!
    So, I like Ward, Sands, Sparks and I really enjoy going to Ellora's Cave website for their free reads...OMG...
    Thanks for the chance.
    beejee77 at gmail dot com

  59. I really don't have just one favorite scene, honestly. It depends on whether I am in a kissing mood, hand-holding mood, just jump right into sex mood, do you know what I mean? But I will say that just about anything that involves the rubbing of neck or shoulders or back--man or woman--and probably some intermittent kissing of those parts as well, is just hot! It doesn't even have to lead to sex!

    If I were to win the contest, I would love to have the e-book or paperback version of Broken. It sounds awesome. Thank you so much for being a part of the blog hop!


  60. My favorite steamy reads have been by Mrs. Laurann Dohner!! ALL of her books are Hot hot HAWT!!! You just melt and to make it even better, there is an actual plot to the story!! Love it!!

  69. Lord of Hawkfell Island


  70. Awesome giveaway!! I have to say anything by Amber Kell, Cynthia Eden or Lisa Renee Jones would be my favorite steamy read!!
    Ashley A

  71. Awesome Giveaway!!

    le.spork (@) gmail.com

  72. My favorite steamy read...well I recently read the Powertools series by Jayne Rylon, and LOVED it. I love how open, honest, respectful, and adoring all the characters are. But my very favorite would probably have to be Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood series) by JR Ward. I can't even put into words all the things I love about it. I've recommended it to all my romance reading friends and they've all loved it!


  73. I think it's how the author writes the characters that makes the story steamy. How the interact with each, the sexual tension created. A favorite of mine is The Lords of Satyr: Nicholas by Elizabeth Amber. The scenes were hot, the characters were awesome and it was a roller coaster ride of emotions.
    Please enter me in both drawings.

  80. One of my favorites that comes to mind is Maya Banks' Stay With Me, I believe it was the first menage I read and I loved it...so many books to read, so little time ;)


  81. I have to go with anything written by Lora Leigh. Can't choose a book thought!

    I've just added Liberating Lacey to my reading list, love everything with a guy in uniform!

Blogger likes to eat comments, so I suggest copying it before hitting "publish" just in case it doesn't go through the first time. This is a pain, I know, but it's the only solution/prevision I can think of, and it will save you the frustration of losing a comment. Also, thanks for visiting!
