Valentine's Day Party - Romance is in the Air!!

When love is not madness, it is not love. ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Many are the starrs I see, but in my eye no starr like thee. ~English saying used on poesy rings

Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction.~Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. ~Albert Einstein
Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine! ~Thomas Hood
I claim there ain't Another Saint As great as Valentine. ~Ogden Nash
Must, bid the Morn awake!
Sad Winter now declines,
Each bird doth choose a mate;
This day's Saint Valentine's.
For that good bishop's sake
Get up and let us see
What beauty it shall be
That Fortune us assigns.
 ~Michael Drayton

Romance is in the Air - Giveaway Blog Hop!

It's that fun time of the year again when romance is in the air (and snow...but that's another story), and authors love to give away their books!

From Feb. 8th - 14th, I'll be part of a Giveaway Blog Hop with other authors who write clean romance or Young Adult stories.

To enter the contest, please leave a comment and tell me why you love Valentine's Day. Leave your name and email in the comment as well so I will know how to contact you. Winner will be chosen on Feb. 15th.

Here is what I'm giving away... A print or PDF (winner's choice)  of my romance, "Dreaming of You".

Katelyn Palmer never believed any harm could come from using her college crush as the hero in her first romance novel—the novel that jump-started her writing career.  However, when Shane Hunter storms into town, demanding to meet the writer who used his identity Katelyn is confronted with more than her long, silent emotions.  If Shane takes her to court for invasion of privacy, her career would be over.

Shane doesn't know how to act when his ex sister-in-law accuses him of having an affair while he was married—and then shows him the romance book as proof.  Now he wants to know who this author really is and why she used his name, and most of the events in his life for her story.  Desperate to know the truth Shane befriends Katelyn but he does not expect to be attracted to her, even more unexpected is the joy he finds watching his twins fall in love with the woman who is stealing his heart, too... find other giveaways participating in this blog hop, click here.
