Giveaway: Shameless Summer Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Shameless Summer Giveaway Hop! I can’t believe it’s finally here. Actually, I can’t even believe we’re already in June!

Michelle, Jen and I, are so happy to, once again, team up to host this hop. We wanted to celebrate summer with all our readers and fellow bloggers, and what better way to do it than with some steamy reads? So today I’ve chosen a couple of wonderful, sexy stories, to give away.

The Reluctant Nude by Meg Maguire. This isn’t a summer book, but it’s set on a beach, so that counts, right? Important thing is, the it’s one of the best books I’ve read this year (although it was 2011 release). The hero is so hot and very, very French. So there’s a sexy accent in there as well. If you want to know more about it, I reviewed it here.

One lucky commenter will get a copy of The Reluctant Nude. It can be either a regular paperback or an electronic copy. You decide. 

Second price is  Ride with Me by Ruthie Knox. Another favorite of the year, don’t let the sweet cover mislead you, this is one steamy story. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of heat packed in the book. Better yet, the story is engaging, there’s a lot of character development and the chemistry between the leads is unbelievable. And, this one happens during the summer. Very appropriate!

One lucky commenter will get an electronic copy of Ride with Me. (Amazon, Kobo or Nook)

For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment telling us what book(s) you’re planning on reading this summer. That’s it! Remember to leave an email, and if you don’t have an e-reader let me know in the comment so I don’t enter your name in the second draw.

  2. Opps I forgot to tell you what book(s) I'm planning on reading this summer.....I'm a very avid reader with sooooo many Fantastic Authors that I Follow, I can't possibly name a specific Author or Book when I can read 2 Books a day. But I can tell you what I will be reading;
    My interest is in Erotic Fiction: primarily M/M, F/F, M/F & Ménage; M/M/M,, M/F/M, F/M/F, F/F/M, M/F/M/F, M/M/M/M, M/M/F/M, M/M/F/M/M....LOL I think you get the idea. I Love all sub-genres of Erotic Paranormal (just LQQk at my name LOL); Vampires, Dhampirs, Werewolves, Shape-Shifters, Dragons, Demons, Gargoyles, Incubus, Succubus, Mermen, Sirens, Satyr, Elves, Faeries, Witches, Warlocks, Ghosts, Zombies....as well as the sub-genres of BDSM, Cowboy/Western, Contemporary Romance, Interracial Romance, Romantic Comedy, Futuristic Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Mystery/Suspense & Historical/Regency....& if they're some ManLove going on, that's just an added plus!

    I know, I'm Bad ;)

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!
