Reader's Choice - Contemporary Romance

GIVEAWAY


Woohoo! Reader's Choice Week at BestReads is baaaack!

 What is Reader's Choice Week?
 
It's become a popular semi-annual blog event that helps grow my TBR list . Instead of me reading and reviewing books, you get to choose titles you would like to win. Please note each day is genre specific so you can only submit books from that genre on that day. You can offer three suggestions per day but they need to be made in three separate posts. Looking forward to seeing your suggestions and adding to my TBR pile! 
 
How does it work?

 Today it's Contemporary Romance Giveaway day. To be entered in the draw just leave a comment below, including the title of the book in the Contemporary Romance genre -- Christian Fiction only please -- that you would like to win.  Important: select only books with a February 2015 or earlier release date. If your name is drawn, I'll send you a copy of that book. Easy Peasy, right? And because I know how hard it is to pick only one book, you can enter this draw three different times with a different title each time. Just make sure each entry is in a different comment.

Remember:

  • Today is Contemporary Romance day -- only Contemporary Romance titles will be included in the draw
  • You can enter up to three different titles BUT they must be done in three different comments. (makes it easier for me to tally)
  • publishing date of books must be February 2015 or earlier.

Please remember to include your email, using AT and DOT instead of @ and . in the address to protect yourself from spammers. Draw will be held and winner announced on Sunday January 18 2015. Offer open to international readers.

    1. Been looking for this one as well! My library can't find it and looking online I can't seem to locate it. Which stinks since it looked so interesting:(

    2. Charity, I found it on Amazon. It's indie published so I think you can only get it there. The American Amazon site. Available in ebook and paperback format.

  2. I would love to read Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade.

  82. I will have to ck my shelves and see. I'm not good about Genres so have to look on the books. One of my Amish said Contempora last year tho and didn't count. Maxie

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maxie, don't overthink it. Contemporary Is anything in present day and this time round you can mix genres so an Amish story send in present day could be either Contemporary or Amish. Have I confused you>

      Historical is anything pre 1960s. And suspense is a book with a mystery or suspense as the major plot thread. Hope that helps.
