Sizzling Summer Nights Super Giveaway

I’m not sure what season is best for steamy hot reads.  Are they best suited to hot summer days where you’re already steaming, or cold winter nights when you need something to warm you up?

I’m not sure it matters, but this summer I’ve been reading more romances again (But not too many. Within my eclectic reading, I do go through phases.  I’ve learned to spread out my reading, otherwise I’ll get tired of a genre, and I’m having too much fun to let that happen!).

I’ve read (and enjoyed) two of the books in this giveaway, so I jumped at the chance to share it with you.  These two were very different (contemporary romantic suspense and historical romance), and the other 3 each have their own style.  To Surrender to a Rogue and Deadly Fear both featured interesting characters, some very spicy scenes, and a readable plot to tie it all together.  I’ll bet the other three do as well.

In this collection, we have:

Winners: How to Tame a Modern Rogue by Diana Holquist

how to tame a modern rogueThank you to everyone who entered this giveaway for How to Tame a Modern Rogue by Diana Holquist. Thank you to Hachette Books for allowing me to host this giveaway!

Since this is a book set in modern times with a regency romance sensibility, I asked those entering to tell me what their favorite era for romance for a bonus enry.

There was absolutely no consensus in the answers! We had:

  • Tudor period (1485-1603)
  • 1700s Scotland/England
  • Colonial period (1700s)
  • Regency (1811-1820) (2 votes)
  • Victorian (1837-1900)  (3 votes)
  • American Frontier/Wild Wild West (late 1700s-1900) (3 votes)
  • World War II/ 1930s-1940s
  • Modern

I’ll conclude that although the 1800s are popular, whenever a romance is set, someone is interested :-).  If I’d asked more people we might have gotten answers from pre-historic to Science Fiction.

Now, for what you are here to find out!

The winners are:

  1. Alicia
  2. Beth (already won)
  3. Stacie
  4. Anfisa
  5. Wanda
  6. Pam

They have been notified via e-mail.

Thank you again to everyone.  Congratulations to the winners!

Don’t forget to check out my giveaway for The Way Home by George P. Pelecanos which ends Oct. 2.

Later this week, I’ll have a review and giveaway for The Smart One and the Pretty One by Claire LaZebnik. Check back!
