FREEDOM TO READ BLOG HOP 2014

 

 

Freedom-to-Read-Hop

Greetings fellow word lovers! I hope your summer is off to a fabulous start, full of captivating reads, leisurely days and starlit nights. At this time of year, when the days are long and the nights are full of firecrackers, I am reminded that there is a lot of magic in the air. That goes double for the hills above Hollywood, where the silver screen is not the only thing that glitters. For you see, the Roman god Cupid and his mother Venus, the goddess of love, live in Hollywood. Who else do you think makes all those crazy love connections that keep the gossip mags in business?

But there’s trouble in Tinsel Town, in the form of Amelia Coillard, a bereaved Hollywood matchmaker who is beating Venus in the game of love. “Matching Wits With Venus” is the story of what happens when the fantasy world of Hollywood and the fantasy world of Roman mythology collide. “Matching Wits With Venus” has been called a “smart, witty, imaginative” “delightful” read that has kept romance fans up all night. And a copy of “Matching Wits With Venus” and a tiny Hollywood SWAG bag can be yours if you’re the winner of this blog hop. All you have to do is tell me your favorite summer food and/or drink. My favorite drink on hot nights is panache, a French drink made of equal parts lemonade and lager. What about you? What’s your favorite way to keep the heat at bay?

 

CONGRATULATIONS ELIZABETH! YOU ARE THE WINNER OF THE HOLLYWOOD SWAG BAG! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR STOPPING BY MY BLOG AND LEAVING ME A MESSAGE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RECEIVING A FREE COPY OF “MATCHING WITS WITH VENUS” AND DID NOT LEAVE ME YOUR E-MAIL, PLEASE CONTACT ME VIA FACEBOOK IN-BOX. HAPPY READING AND HAPPY SUMMER!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. May your summer be full of magic! P.S. I would love to connect on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
