Romancing the Hop Blog Hop

 
Hello and Welcome to this stop on the blog hop!  Books have been an important part of my life since I was around 3 years old.  I have enjoyed countless fairy tales and mysteries, and then at the age of 11 I got a hold of my very first romance novel.  I was hooked.  Since that day I have branched out and read all types of romance from paranormal to historical to contemporary to scy-fy to erotica and finally BDSM.  I can honestly save I have truly loved them all, as long as they have an HEA.  I believe in torturing your characters as much as you like, just in the end give them a version of an HEA, even if it comes 5 books from now!!  LOL!!  To help celebrate my love for romance I have joined in this hop.  You have the opportunity to win 2 prizes here:  $10 amazon card and a copy of a very sexy book entitled A Measured Risk.  But there is more!!  We also have a grand prize giveaway for a few lucky commenters.  SO remember to comment and Leave your Email address!!!!!  Here are the details for the grand prize:

Book one in the Regency Risks Series

He is her most dangerous temptation, the only man she has ever trusted and now he is demanding her submission. Dare she take the risk?

Emotionally scarred in the horrific accident that took her husband’s life, Lady Cranfield is imprisoned by her lingering terror of horses and carriages. Lady Cranfield longed to be closer to the fascinating Earl of Ruel. She sensed intuitively that he could teach her how to overcome the terrors that held her in bondage.

And now she’s willing to risk almost anything-her reputation, even her virtue-to find out. But what he proposes startles her.

When the shy, studious and socially awkward young widow approached him, Ruel instantly sensed she would be the sweetest, most submissive experience of a lifetime-if only he can gain her total and complete trust. He makes her a non-negotiable offer. His help in return for her submission and obedience.

But Lady Cranfield grew up neglected by her ducal parents, raised by servants and then later ignored by her handsome, charming husband. She’s learnt to protect her heart at all costs and she trusts no one but herself.

How can the jaded Earl of Ruel break through her self-protective defences and show her how to love when he has spent his lifetime avoiding that tender trap?


Reader Advisory: This is a work of historical fiction, it is not meant to be an accurate portrayal of or guide to how people recover from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is also not meant to be an accurate portrayal of modern BDSM or D/s lifestyles.

This is a work of Erotic Historical Romance and it uses the graphic language and situations of Erotic Romance.  You can take a look at my review HERE

Teen Romances. Goddess me, I've read so many Sweet Dreams books.

Andrea said...

Definitely M/M romance since that's about 75% of what I read anymore. Contemporary M/M to be a little more specific. If I'm reading a M/F romance then I'll choose paranormal.

books first love said...

Historical romance I heart the most!
Cheers!

iamindeed said...

I don't know that I have one particular category that I only read.. I've read more historical and paranormal than others - but that's just recently...
Probably though - I would have to say I'm always reaching for the historical romance books when I'm at the shop..

thank you for participating

Lately my favorite subgenre is BDSM romance. Like you, I started young and went through all the genres. I read my first BDSM book about 2 years ago (a year before the Fifty Shades craze hit) and was hooked. I'm reading "A Measured Risk" right now and love it!

Bratty Adaline said...

Adore your blog and your style! It's hard to pick a favorite but I really enjoy reading about the main female character being spanked (discipline,play, anything) by a strong male lead. Does that fall under BDSM? Maybe a little. ;)
Have a fantastic weekend.

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! I think it is romantic when he brings me flowers because no one else has ever done it! My friend and I went out for our last big night out before classes started again. Thanks so much! Hope everyone else is having a great long weekend!!

Mydurango618 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!
