Lovestruck Giveaway Hop

Lovestruck Blog Hop

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. ♥

Redemption by Susannah SandlinThe 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.



Royal Street by Suzanne JohnsonThen 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:

  1. I’ve loved KING MAI by Edmond Manning, CATACLYSMIC SHIFT by Tara Lain, and COLLUSION by Eden Winters–all part of various amazing m/m series!


  2. The Sentinels series is one that has hooked me also. The other is Cecy Robson’s Weird Sisters series. Loved the first two books.

  3. I love Laura Kaye’s Hearts of the Anemoi and J. Kenner’s Stark series.


  4. I found the BEST series this year. Kerrianne Coombes’ Demon Tales. It’s a dark, sexy spin on the old fairy tale classics. Wonderful.

  5. So far I’ve been struck by Vampire Elite (Irina Argo). Amazing book!

  6. I must say you are a very broadminded blogger to give away a GC instead of a book you’re promoting. Promotion, though, is still a good thing because getting on these hops is one way I have of getting to know new authors and books and blogs. I am a romance junkie, I admit it, and it can be western, paranormal, Regency, Scottish, contemporary or whatever. I like it all. So thanks for the chance and for participating in this hop!

  7. The Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Kallysten writes amazing books dealing with vampires, demons etc in The Demon Age series that I’ve discovered this year.

  9. Thanks for telling me about your favorite author. Her books need to be in my overwhelming TBR pile. The series I’ve found this year is the Beckoning series by Calinda B; Eden Summers new Reckless Beat series; Angela McCallister’s new “Bad” series (vampires); and J.T. Geissinger’s paranormal series. They are all wonderful. Add to that Cassi Carver’s great paranormal series and I’ve got way too many new books to watch for…so I keep a schedule.
