"Fall Into Romance" Hop + Cover Reveal!

The wait is finally over! I'm super excited to reveal the cover of my upcoming release, Because This Is Forever. I fell in love with this family and their story and I'm so excited to be sharing it with the world this fall!

Now that we're heading into fall, I just wanted to share some of the amazing stories I fell in ♥ with this summer. _______________________________________
It's no big secret that I'm a huge Linda Howard fan. I have a shelf dedicated to just her books. This summer I added another, Shadow Woman. Though this book was heavy on the Romantic Suspense elements, taking away some of the chemistry from the hero and heroine for me, it still had all the core elements of a Linda Howard story that I enjoy! ♥♥♥
I got a chance to read a fellow author-friend of mine's latest release and it was a joy! From our time as critique partners, I got a chance to know Callia and Grayson from the start and it was a treat to read Sweet Secrets and see their story unfold. Though I admit, I'm not a fan of first person POV (I love to get the POV of both the hero and the heroine!), I did, however, enjoy this story for the characters, the humor, and the beautiful writing. Who can't fall in love with rekindled love? ♥♥♥

This author is very new to me and I purchased Wanderlust because of the compelling cover and blurb, as well as the rave reviews. I came into this story, however, with the understanding that it is a dark erotica with scenes of dubious consent, which serves as a warning for those uncomfortable with such themes. With that said, I have to now say that this story was unlike any I've read before. It was indeed dark but the characters and story were so beautifully written, I couldn't help but get drawn in. This story isn't your classic love story by any means but it is a love story that is truly unforgettable. ♥♥♥+♥

I like that's it's so easy to get into the story and characters without trying to figure out what's happening in the broader world. It's a braincandy read.
I like contemporary because they are so much more down to earth!
The romance :) LOL Not a very creative answer but I love romance :)

I like the endless ways characters can find their HEA! This summer, I loved Tara Lain's CATACLYSMIC SHIFT and Edmond Manning's KING MAI.

I like contemporary romances because sometimes you just want a little reassurance that the HEA is out there.

I like contemporary romances because they often use places I actually know or can relate to. I have several books that I fell in love with this summer, including some I re-visited such as Tanya Huff's 'Blood' series.

I like contemporary romances because they're easier to relate to and it's a nice break from other genre's. I love paranormal,fantasy and sci-fi but there are times I just want something a bit more realistic to read.

I am a Happy Endings girl. I can find that in contemporary romance. I also like some of the realism.

Actually, I'm a bigger fan of historical romances set mainly in the 19th century and early 20th century. But in any book, I like the HEA best.

The book I fell in love with this summer was Sarah Castille's Against the Ropes. I already know it is a book I will be reading over and over. Just talking about it makes me want to read it again and I just finished it for the first time last week. :D

I’m a sucker for the happily ever after. Being a fan of the paranormal and sci fi romances, I like to take a break from them and read contemporary romances. Course they are sometimes contemporary paranormal romances. LOL
Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

I like contemporary romances because they are relatable. Although my favorite book of the summer was more of an urban fantasy...Cloak & Silence by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

I think contemporaries are great because the stories are real, things that could be happening to a friend or neighbor or even yourself.

Thanks for being part of the hop!
