Celebrating Our 1st Anniversary by @JoanReeves #RomanceGems

One year ago today, twenty-three of us joined together to form Romance Gems.

The response to this blog, and to each of the Authors, has been amazing.

We've made a lot of reading friends, written a ton of posts, and given away dozens of prizes including books, Amazon Gift Cards, jewelry, and tee shirts.

First Anniversary

To celebrate our One Year Anniversary, we have a big Valentine Book Fair with sigh-worthy romance novels at great prices. We also have a Rafflecopter with some great Amazon Gift Cards up for grabs.

My Pop-Up Giveaway

I'm giving away 5 copies of Blame It On Chocolate.

Chloe Elliot was a good girl. She didn’t even curse! Since her dad was the son of a minister and the oft-elected mayor, she'd had no choice but to live a life above reproach. Truthfully, it really hadn’t been that difficult.

Until Hunter Cole returned to his home town. There was just something about the man that addled her brain and created havoc in her body.

Hunter Cole reckoned he had the best of all possible worlds. His life was perfect. Until he dropped by the library to say hello to his best friend's little sister. Only Chloe wasn't a little girl now. Just looking at her made his common sense evaporate. If he made a move on her, her brother would nail his hide to the wall. So how was he going to get Chloe off his mind?

    As a matter of fact, I won a contest for an article about my first kiss.
    I was 11, his name was Howie, and it was at dancing school. Yada yada yada , I still can't dance and the kiss wasn't too impressive.

    1. Nancy, that's funny. I guess my first kiss was actually when I was 6. His name was Donald, and the kiss was on my cheek so I didn't count that as a first kiss for that reason. Thanks for entering my Pop-Up Giveaway.
