Why I Love Romance?

It's been a part of who I am since my teen years! I love reading the beginning of a romance and how it evolves. My favorites are friends to lovers and opposites attract.

Romance can also be super funny! Have you read Jill Shalvis or Shannon Stacey? They are my faves! Here is a funny romance cartoon:

In honor of Romance and all the books that have brought me to life, I am giving away a Kindle copy of my fave author's first summer release, Slow Summer Kisses by Shannon Stacey.

Anna Frazier is used to living life at 100 mph, but being downsized out of a job in the financial industry has her permanently stalled. With nowhere to go, go, go,Anna hails a cab to her grandparents' neglected New Hampshire camp to plan her next move. It seems like a good idea—until she realizes there's no takeout to be had and the boy next door has grown into a sexy but surly recluse.

Cameron Mayfield knows he can kiss his peace and quiet goodbye when Hurricane Anna blows in. She was loud and bossy as a ten-year-old—and besides developing some attractive curves, she hasn't changed. Cam's not looking for a relationship, especially not with a woman like Anna. He nearly broke down on that road once before. So why can't he stop thinking about her?

It's not long before their sizzling attraction leads to smoking-hot kisses. But as the days get shorter, Anna must decide if she's found a new road to happiness, or just taken a detour.
