Summer Love Blog Hop
for Lovers of Sweet Romance
Hop Stop & GIVEAWAY!


I am happy to be participating in the Summer Love Blog hop! This hop is targeted for lovers of sweet romance, and no one does "sweet romance" better than Avon Romance. I have compiled a short list of romance titles from Avon both old and new that I think are pretty sweet! Check out my post and then make sure you follow this blog tour and enter my awesome giveaway!

Crazy Sweet Fine by Rachel Gibson, Candis Terry & Jennifer Bernard

Avon released this compilation book in March of this year and it has three amazing and sweet stories. It features three amazing authors and two of these are available as individually purchasable novella's but this perfectly paired collaboration is only available in paperback.

Fall in love- over and over again- with three much-loved romantic stories from New York times bestselling author Rachel Gibson, Candis Terry and Jennifer Bernard

Crazy on You by Rachel Gibson-
Newly single Lily Darlington is starting over after a messy divorce, and the gorgeous police officer next door is hoping for a chance to protect, serve...and love.

Home Sweet Home by Candis Terry
Lt. Aiden Marshall has returned to Sweet, Texas where the woman he's always loved is waiting to make it a homecoming to remember. 

One Fine Fireman by Jennifer Bernard
Fireman Kirk is named Thor for his Viking good look- but when ever he's around Maribel he turns into mush. Can a feisty puppy and an even feistier little boy help them find the true love they both so richly deserve?

Love is just a heartbeat away in three classic tales as sassy, sexy and wonderfully unpredictable as the real thing!

Ain't She Sweet by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

I am a huge SEP fan! Ain't She Sweet is one of my favorite books and I have re-read it so many times I sometimes think I could recite it by chapter. If you haven't experience Sugar Beth Carey then this book needs to be on your TBR list!

She's the baddest girl in town...isn't she?
Sugar Beth Carey's come back to Parrish, Mississippi, and she's brought her reputation for wreaking havoc with her. She's broke, desperate, and too proud to show it, even with her old enemies lining up for a chance to get even. Her former girlfriends have their eyebrow pencils sharpened into lethal points. Winnie Davis, her longtime rival, is fully armed with the money, power, prestige that had once been Sugar Beth's. But worst of all is Colin Byrne, the man whose career Sugar Beth had destroyed-and not exactly accidentally. 

Now Colin's a famous novelist living in Sugar Beth's old mansion, and this modern day dark prince is using his writer's imagination to figure out how to bring the town's beautiful former princess to her knees. But despite her sassy mouth, feisty spirit, and hardheaded ways, Sugar Beth's no longer the spoiled rich girl that they all remember. No, now she's a woman to be reckoned with...and a great big reckonin' is about to happen, not least of all for one dark prince who might- just might be thinking about falling in love with the wickedest girl in town. 

Ain't She Sweet? A funny heartwarming- oh-so-spicy story of love, friendship, and the possibility of happily-ever-after.

The Ugly Duchess by Eloisa James (Happily Ever After #4)
What is sweeter than a fairy tale? While I have enjoyed all the books in Eloisa's Happily Ever After (a fairy tale remake series), the Ugly Duchess was my favorite with the Duke is Mine (her take on the Princess and the Pea) running a close second. Earlier this year there was also a three novella release that made up her book As You Wish (part of my giveaway below). Happily Ever After is sweet, that is why this book made my list!

How can she dare to imagine he loves her... when London calls her the Ugly Duchess?

Theodora Saxby is the last woman anyone expects the gorgeous James Ryburn, heir to the Duchy of Ashbrook, to marry. But after a romantic proposal before the prince himself, even practical Theo finds herself convinced of her soon-to-be Duke's passion.

Still, the tabloids give the marraige six months.

Theo would have given it a lifetime...until she discovers that James desired not her heart, and certainly not her countenance, but her dowry. 

Society was shocked by their wedding... and is scandalized by their separation.

Now James faces the battle of his life, convincing Theo that he loves the little duckling that blossomed into the swan. 

And Theo will quickly find that, for a man with the soul of a pirate, Alls Fair, in Love and War.

I am going to give one winner their choice on ONE of the books from this post in either a Kindle, Nook or Mass Market Paperback version. Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter!
