Snowbound Love Bloghop and Giveaway!


I'm taking part in the Snowbound Love blog hop hosted by Sizzling PR this week. Not only am I a massive fan of winter, I love any kind of winter romance and the idea of being snowbound with someone is incredibly romantic so this sounded like the perfect hop for me.

My love of snowbound romances came about entirely by accident. A few years ago I was sent a copy of Get a Clue by Jill Shalvis by mistake and the company let me keep it. It sat on my shelf for ages as I initially wrote it off as cheesy but when I was travelling I chucked it in my bag as a 'just in case' read and ended up picking it up.

I devoured the whole book in a single sitting and adored every minute. There's romance, drama, suspense and snow and I got sucked straight into Breanne and Cooper's story. I've reread it a few times since and I've even tried a few other snowbound romances and romantic suspense novels, although to this day this remains as my favourite.

  3. I haven't read one where the couple is snowed in. It's such an appealing scenario, I'd love to see it (especially in m/m). Oh, I think "One Buck'n Holiday" from the Story Orgy's holiday anthology counts--very cute!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Lol! I tend to do that with books - remember lots of plot points and then struggle with the title.

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  10. I think a snowbound romance I liked is called Only You by Elizabeth Lowell. (I can't find it in my massively overcrowded bookshelves.) They get caught in a blizzard in the CO mountains.
    @ Swordlily, I read a story like that by Linda Howard. The convict was the hero. Good story, short I think.

  13. Meg Cabot has a really fun story involving two people being snowbound, or at least trying to travel through Alaska or somewhere cold, avoiding bad guys!
