RAINING ROMANCE GIVEAWAY HOP!!


Being an avid reader, I love books in all different genres... but where my heart truly lies, where it really gets a jump starts and where my tummy gets all those wonderful little butterflies that make me feel all kinds of good, is from Romance books. To me, there's nothing more perfect than reading about two characters finding their way to one another despite all the odds while dealing with heartbreaks, second chances, failed love, past mistakes, wounded pride and tortured souls. When two characters can find their way past all that to their HEA, it's the most perfect ending.

For this hop, we're supposed to feature a book in Romance, so the books I chose for this blog hop giveaway is from a new author suggested to me last month by a friend. I'd never read anything by author JOYA RYAN before and when I got my hands on her first book in the Reign series, titled Yours Tonight, I fell instantly in love with her writing style and her characters. She mixes heartbreak, troubled pasts and broken souls in with a bit of mystery and intrigue and a whole lot of yummy, sexy romance! I loved this book and was immediately on board for book two, Yours Completely, where the author changes things up a bit and gives us another smokin' hot, exciting hero to delight and thrill us. 

So for this giveaway, I want to share my new find and offer ONE winner BOTH ebooks gifted from Amazon plus a $10 Amazon Gift Card. So the winner will get a favorite of mine and the chance to buy a favorite of theirs. Fair, right? I thought so. ;)

Here's a little about the books to help entice you. Don't forget to scroll to the bottom and enter the Rafflecopter. Then head on over to all the other blogs participating in this hop and enter their giveaways too.
Good Luck!

Yours Tonight (Reign #1)
by Joya Ryan
Adult, Contemporary Romance

!! READ MY 5 STAR REVIEW HERE !!

BOOK BLURB:
He will give her everything she's ever wanted...

Jack Powell's confidence is matched only by his intensity. The darkness in him comes from years of secrets and memories he'd rather forget. Lana has an exotic innocence that draws him in and Jack wants a taste of her. She's a light in the darkness of his world - and she needs help, which he agrees to.

The only rule? He makes the rules.

Lana gives up her control, letting Jack take her body however he needs, while she works her way into his heart. But Jack's past catches up to them and Lana finds herself wrapped up in a scheme that will expose every secret she's worked so hard to keep. She clung to Jack once when her world was crashing down, but this time, she loves him. She'll continue to reach for him - her only fear is if he'll reach back, or go on his way, taking her soul with him...

Yours Completely (Reign #2)
by Joya Ryan
Adult, Contemporary Romance

!! READ MY 5 STAR REVIEW HERE !!

BOOK BLURB:
Lana Case knows what it feels like to be tossed aside - first by her family and then by the man she naively believed was her true love. But when Jack leaves, reconfirming that she isn't worthy of love, her world shatters. The last person Lana thought to find refuge in is an adrenaline-junky firefighter, let alone Jack's best friend. Yet Callum Malone's easy-going, playboy persona is just what she needs.

When Lana finds herself the target of a stalker who isn't going away, Callum not only welcomes her into his home, but also into his bed. Unable to deny the chemistry between them, Lana gives in and after a night of fiery passion discovers what it finally feels like to not only be cherished - but safe. Lana and Callum are falling fast, knowing they're both far out of their depth. And then Jack returns to claim the woman he left behind . . .

  4. I have been sick for several years and been in and out of the hospital so many times that I cannot remember the last 5 star romance novel or the author's name. I plan to start reading lots more again. I was on some strong pain medication and whenever I tried to read, I just dozed off.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear you've been sick Deborah. Being in pain and suffering through sickness can really take it's toll, especially when the meds seem to keep you from functioning like you want. Maybe now you can find some relief or at least an escape in a good book. I hope you feel better soon, love, and thanks for stopping by and commenting.
