Fall Into Romance Blog Hop & Giveaway


In honor of the Fall into Romance Hop (September 13-21) I’m featuring two books that made me fall in love with the romance genre years ago.

AND THERE'S A GIVEAWAY! Just fill in the Raffelocopter at the end to enter to win an Amazon Gift Card.

 Leave me a comment: What book made you fall in love with the romance genre?




Son of the Morning by Linda Howard. A book layered in fantasy, magic and love. This is a different take on romance since the hero and heroine don’t even meet face-to-face until page 281, and it’s a twist on time travel. But you’ll fall in love with the blending of contemporary and historical fiction  with some exceptional research written by a master.





Remembrance by Jude Deveraux. Soulmates, past lives, and reincarnation. Of all her books this one just stands out. This isn’t a light romance. There’s a lot of heartbreak and drama before the characters get it right. Best quote: “You can’t be happy in this life because of what happened in your past lives.”

  7. Gone with the Wind, as I recall, was the first romance book I read. But I didn't really get into reading only romance (historicals) until the mid-70s.

  8. I honestly can't remember the title of the book that got me into romance. I do remember it being a Harlequin book though. What really sealed the deal for me was Linda Howard's "Shades of Twilight". It's one of my favorite reads along with Johanna Lindsay's " A Man to Call My Own" and Jude Deveraux's Montgomery/Taggert series.

  11. I started reading romance books ages ago (when I was 15). A cousin lend me a Harlequin romance (sorry I don't remember the name of the book) and that's when I fell in love with romance novels.

  15. The Born In Trilogy by Nora Roberts started me reading romance. With her JD Robb books, she introduced me to the paranormal genre. She is still my favorite author to this day (though there are others close to her spot)
