Romance Awareness Month . . . With Prizes! Enter And Win!



I am so excited to be participating in Romance Awareness Month!

Some of my very favorite romances are from the Proper Romance Line with such authors as Sarah Eden, Nancy Campbell Allen, Josi Kilpack, and Julianne Donaldson. (You can see all their books here) I love that there are westerns, regencies, and even some steampunk and I know I won't be disappointed when I pick up any of these books---I'll be swept away! They are clean romances as well as captivating, which only adds to the reasons why they are my favorites.

So, in order to celebrate there's going to be parties and giveaways!

The first party is a Facebook party this Friday, August 4th, from 12:30 PM to 2:45 PM and there will be some great giveaways, along with the chance to talk to all four of my favorite authors! I know I'll be there. You can join the party here

I'll also be giving away a romance a week for the month of August. And it is so easy to win!

Be sure to scroll down and enter for your chance to win a print copy of The Vicar's Daughter by Josi Kilpack. I loved this one! (Contest starts at midnight tonight and goes until next Tuesday when there will be another prize for you to win!)



Here's the back copy:

Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There's only one problem: her older sister Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.

Evan Glenside, a soft-spoken, East London clerk, has just been named his great-uncle's heir and, though he is eager to learn all that will be required of him, he struggles to feel accepted.

A chance meeting between Evan and Lenora promises to change everything, but when Lenora proves too shy to pursue the relationship, Cassie begins to write Mr. Glenside letters in the name of her sister but her good intentions may lead to disaster.

As secrets are revealed, the hearts of Cassie, Evan, and Lenora are tested. Will the final letter sent by the vicar's daughter be able to reunite the sisters as well as unite Evan with his true love?

Doesn't it sound great?! I know you'll love it. Enter to win below!

Is it cliché to say that I don't have a favorite author? I truly don't, though. I've loved almost everything Becky Wade and Denise Hunter. They're in my top 5 for sure. :-)

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

Not cliche at all! It's so hard to choose! It's like trying to choose a favorite dessert, am I right? :)

I'm waiting the Karen. I have no favorite author or genre. As long as the book pulls me in, I'll read it.

Heather said...

My favorite author is Georgette Heyer, with "Sylvester" being my favorite one of her books. Or maybe "Frederica." I can never choose between those two!

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

Michele, that is so true!

Heather, Georgette Heyer is amazing!

MH said...

I have too many favorite authors that I can't name them all! Susan May Warren and Kristen Heitzmann and Julie Lessman in contemporary, Roseanna White and Julie Klassen in historical, Irene Hannon and Teri Blackstock and Dani Pettrey in suspense, Ronie Kendig in thriller/action...and the list goes on and on...

Beth said...

I love so many authors! One of my long-time favorite historical fiction authors is Laura Frantz. I haven't read a book of hers that I didn't like, but I think my favorites are The Colonel's Lady and A Moonbow Night.

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

MH and Beth, I haven't heard of those authors! I will have to check them out! Thank you.

I have many favorite authors...everything written by Karen Kingsbury, Kim Vogel Sawyer, Tracie Peterson, Denise Hunter, Lauraine Snelling,.... in the last couple of months I have begun to read some new authors. I would love to win this book and perhaps add this author to my list of favs. Thanks for the chance! 😊

Donna E said...

Ooooo, I have too many favorite authors to name just one. But I am always looking for new authors as well.

Patty said...

Don't think I could pick just one! Burning Sky by Lori Benton is one of my very favorite historical novels, then I recently read The Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green, also excellent.
As for contemporary novels, I love all of Becky Wade's books so far. And another contemporary author I just discovered is Jennifer Rodewald.

That's an impossible question. There are so many authors that I love! In many genres! Narrowing it down, if I HAD to pick a favorite genre, I'd say regency romance. In that genre I love Sarah Eden, Donna Hatch, Sarah Ladd, Julie Klassen, Rebecca Connolly, Julianne Donaldson...

Alyson said...

I just diacovered a new one that I am loving! Kristi Ann Hunter.

Lisa And Randy said...

I have so many favorite authors. So hard to choose when so many are friends of mine, and write such engaging books. Would love to get this latest by Josie.

Mary Preston said...

I can't say that I have one absolute favorite. I read across many genres and authors.

Laura Waltz said...

There were a lot of authors listed above that I love, but I am going a classic route and saying Louisa May Alcott. I loved her books growing up and they will always have a special place in my heart for sure!

Julianne Donaldson--my favorite was Edenbrooke, but I loved the other 2 as well.
