Gifting Books Giveaway Hop***WINNERS***

 WINNERS!!!

$5 Amazon.com GC – Jenny and Tina Donnelly

 

Welcome to my stop in the Gifting Books Giveaway Hop!!

I’ve been gifted a lot of books through the years. Some were exactly to my taste and others not so much. I think with each book I found something in it to keep me reading it. My favorite book is an OLD romance with the words Fleur de Lis in the title. It’s in English but it’s about a Russian princess who lost her memory and wakes up married to a privateer. The romance and the action in that book kept me sighing for the entire duration. I got that book almost twenty years ago and treasured it for a long time. But with moves and things of that nature, I lost it at some point. I was devastated. I loved that story so much I went on Amazon looking for it. And I found it!!! :D I bought it and it’s at home. I read it again but after so many years, and my own writing happening, it was still good, but now I looked at it differently, through the eyes of a writer. I still love the story and will always treasure it for what it was, one of the many romances that pushed my love of writing…

Thank you for stopping by today. Here’s what you can win here.

2 Winners – Each will each take home a $5 amazon gc from my stop.

Take a moment to read about my latest release: Stranded Temptation.

 

Stranded Temptation

Stranded together, their passions will run wild.

Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.

Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so professional and take the woman of his dreams. After all, what happens in the middle of nowhere, stays in the middle of nowhere. Until they’re rescued.

Back in the real world, things aren’t as easy. Kara is afraid to start a relationship with a man who completely ignored her until she took off her clothes, and Max is afraid she’ll never be able to trust him. But when someone makes it clear that Kara’s in danger, Max has more to protect than Kara’s feelings. And now that he has her, he’s not about to let her go.

    Stranded Temptation sounds like a great read. I’ve received many books this year and by far many of them are great. Haven’t gifted a book to anyone yet since sadly to say none of my friends read the types of books we read. So I’m waiting for a day when I can share some of my back listed books, maybe to a reader on these blog hops.

    One of the most special books i have been given was Pride and Prejudice. My best friend is a Jane Austen fan and before i decided to move (states) I finally relented and decided to read the book and watch the movie with her before I moved. The day I was leaving, we were both trying not to cry and she gave a copy of the book.

    Greetings,

    (You asked, What was the most special book you’ve gifted or received?)

    I received the book Fury – (New Species series) by Laurann Dohner. I didn’t think I would like it because I wasn’t a strong paranormal reader. I was enthralled by it and stayed up most of the night reading it. I couldn’t put it down! I was hooked and purchased the rest of the series. She is an outstanding writer! I have all of her other books as well. They didn’t disappoint. I look forward to her future releases.

    Thanks for the opportunity to share.

    Best wishes to you and your family during the holidays.

    Happy Holidays!

    The only people I give books to are kids because I try to instill a love of reading in them but I can’t remember any specific titles. Sadly, most of the adults I know don’t like to read. My son does but he chooses his own titles as do I.

    The most special book I received had to be Gentle Warrior By Julie Garwood. My mother bought that book for me back when it first came out in 1985. It was my second romance novel and started me on the path to all things Julie Garwood. I have always LOVED to read (Shakespeare and Poe to name a few) but with Julie it opened up the world of romance novels. To this day she has remained true to who she is as a writer, which keeps her as my favorite author. If not for her I may not be the book blogger that I am today.

    I gave the Harry Potter series to all my children. Got everyone one of them into reading.

    My first novel given was Bertrice Small’s Spitfire. I have read every novel she has published since then.

    My family and friends often share and/or gift books to each other that we think the other person will like, so several of my books are extra special as they didn’t just come from the book store (although I love those too!).

    Probably the bible my brother gave me about 25 years ago.
