They say that lightning never strikes twice in the same place. But it looks like love does, because the Lovestruck Giveaway Hop is back!
This year, the Hop is hosted by Under the Covers Book Blog. Organizing one of these hops has got to be, well, a labor of love.
Speaking of love, let’s talk about new, or new to me, authors that I’ve fallen in love with this year. This is about being lovestruck after all. ♥
The author who has had me scrambling to find all her books this year has been Suzanne Johnson/Susannah Sandlin. I’ve lost a couple of weekends to her marvelous stories because her Penton Legacy series (written as Sandlin) is pretty much vampire romance crack, once I started it I couldn’t stop until I reached the current end. And I want the next one yesterday. They just seemed like the perfect blend of alpha heroes in need of redemption and strong women in need of someone to respect their strength. With a perfectly evil enemy.
Then there’s her Sentinels of New Orleans series, written as Suzanne Johnson, which is the one I discovered first. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities. (We almost moved there). But the blend of the old city, the historic undead, the shapeshifters, with magic! It’s utterly cool. And the wizard coming into her own. Not his own, you note, her own. DJ is a fantastic heroine, snarky and kick-ass and sometimes in over her head. The portrayal of the post-Katrina cleanup of New Orleans in Royal Street was incredibly poignant and heartbreaking.
Because I want you to have a chance to be lovestruck by your own favorite author or series, I’m giving away a USD$10 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble (winner’s choice). To enter, use the Rafflecopter below:
