Romancing the....Blog

“I love romance. I'm a sucker for it. I love it so much. It's pathetic.” ~ Drew Barrymore

Romance books are much like movies. Not that they are telling lies, but an exaggeration of reality. I know that real life is not like the romance novels I read, but they entertain me none the less.

I've talked about the author Tara Janzen before. I just picked up her latest book this weekend and I had it read in a day. I've started the Crazy series over again. I have never had a particular author that I preferred until Tara Janzen.

I have read a lot of romance novels over the you can see by my book shelf. I've already cleaned that shelf out once this year. When I read, I devour. They might be exaggerated but the books do speak to me. They help remind me that I do still have some of those crazy, wild feelings for my husband and in my marriage.


SO, for the first time ever on my blog, I'm having a giveaway!!!

Tell me about YOUR favorite romance author or book.

Ok, doesn't HAVE to be of the romance genre.

I'll pick a comment randomly (probably by telling the husband to pick a number between here and there) and the winner will receive a copy of Tara Janzen's Crazy Hot, the first in the Crazy series.

If you want to share in the book love but don't want to be part of the contest (I understand that romance novels are not everyone's cup of tea) just include 'out' at the bottom of your comment, and I'll know to exclude you from the prize.

I'll except comments for the rest of the week and announce the winner Saturday morning.


  1. My fav is Diana Gabaldon. She wrote a series they call her Outlander series that I read cover to cover multiple times. My daughter is named after one of the charectors in the books.
    Talking about her makes me want to read them all again. lol

  2. Does it have to be only one entry per person? Cause I can fill this sucker up! j/k! I haven't read a lot lately, but this one that I read last year still sticks out in my mind. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. It's supposed to be a movie with Cameron Diaz next year too. It'll be neat to see how it turns out.

  3. Suzanne Brockmann. Hands down she's my favorite author. She's a military romantic suspense author and I really, really like her. She's a wonderful author and her books are always on my must buy :) Love ya!

  4. I like romance to be wrapped in comedy...therefore Bridget Jones' Diary is top of my choices.

  5. I just love the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer. I'm not going bother trying to describe, I probably won't end up serving it justice. But by now, you've probably have heard all about it and read it XD.


  6. Elizabeth Scott!! She's pretty new to the YA literature but I just love, LOVE Bloom. Which is her first book. Definitely check her out if you enjoy short sweet stories.

  7. My favorite as of currently is The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. It's a great historical, dramatic story with some romance in it. A wonderful debut book!


  8. Definitely the Aisling Grey series by Katie MacAlister! It's sexy, funny, and full of kick-butt action.
