Sweetheart Blog Hop & Giveaway

I just love reading and writing romances, and what inspires those activities more than Valentine’s Day? So, for this Valentine’s Day Blog Hop, I’m sharing my love of reading and writing books, specifically ones with a Valentine’s Day theme J

First, here are two that I’ve written. Both are shorter works where the time frame of the story includes Valentine’s Day. Both are erotic romances that involve one of my favorites, witchy elements of that genre, Sex Magick. Continuing on, where these books differ is time. The first one listed, Love, Creativity and Magick, is a historical, my favorite ‘past’ time, Regency England with a steampunk flair. The second one listed, Sacred Sex, is contemporary and a manual on sex magick if you’d want to read it that way. LOL

So, you can read about those, or scroll down for a few lists of many other Valentine’s Day themed books.

Love, Creativity & Magick: A Steampunk Valentine’s Day Tale - A Novelette

All acts of magick take on shades of gray in the end. Especially for Emma, one of four females witches who by birthright belong in the social circles of the privileged upper ten thousand in London. Yet, by rumor of the unknown and the misunderstood, she stands apart, cut by her peers along with her cousins, because they hold a secret—each is gifted with magick.

Their elders had taught them respect for their powers even when mixed with a spanking amount of fanciful mischief.  On the other hand, if a lesson was warranted, then white verses black magick could be hard to define. No where was the color of steam more evident than in the matters of justice, a slippery term to define. Yet, they’d made breaking the laws of society their mission. Most of their nights at parties and balls were spent creating a magickal comedy of errors, helping the uptight aristocracy side step their fastidious standards.

Only this year, days before Valentine’s Day, a damnable day for women without suitors, Emma is not quite sure what is happening to her. Something dark and seductive, something not of this world, is luring her, possessing her, and she has no comprehension of what or who the presence really is.

Naughty Hot Shots - Sacred Sex, A Valentine's Day Novella

Just a few days before Valentine’s Day, Margaret visits her aunt’s craft consignment shop hoping for a spell or oil, and any advice on how to re-connect with her husband, Michael, who has become distant since losing his job. Determined to save her marriage, she gets more than she bargained for from Aunt Minny, a practicing witch. Armed with recipes to enhance love, a massage oil love potion, a new Valentine’s Day candle and a book on Sacred Sex Rituals, Margaret prepares to seduce her husband.

But, his initial reaction is not what she planned for…

Follow Margaret and Michael on a holiday of love journey, a throwback to the kinky pagan sex rituals once practiced long ago on this day before it was named after a saint. You may want to take notes to enhance your own Valentine's Day this year!

Genres: Contemporary, Erotic Romance, Wiccan/Pagan, Holiday - Valentine’s Day
Please Note: This story was re-released by a new publisher, Naughty Nights Press, after being re-edited and given a sexy new Jimmy Thomas cover :)
Available Now at NNP Store, All Romance Ebooks, and Amazon

And, the list goes on… I searched Valentine’s Day Book lists, and I came up with sadly only two. But before I get to those, I know that Naughty Nights Press has another short, and really hot, Valentine’s Day story by author Abby Hayes, called Seeing Red. I recommend checking it out! CLick HERE to view.

Okay, back to the searching, first, I found a nice list of Mystery themed Valentine’s Day stories. Many sound really good. A great list because each title has links to buy. Click HERE to view. Think I’ll start with How to Kill The Man of Your Dreams just because the title is so creative *winks*

Next, I found a list on Goodreads. Click HERE to view. My TBR list is steadily growing of course *sighs*

But after not having much more luck other than a ton of children’s books, I simply went to Amazon and searched Valentine’s Day, then clicked the Romance subheading. Click HERE to see the numerous search results.

If you are like me, the book shopping is half the fun. Enjoy! Now, onto the blog hop info...
