    Favorite Sport: I’m a sports fanatic and I’m married to a sports writer. I guess if I had to pick I’d have to say Football and NASCAR are the sports I like the most. I’ve read two of the Play-by Play series books and plan on reading the others from Jaci Burton. The stories are great and love the characters. I’ve also, enjoyed Susan Elizabeth Phillips Chicago Stars books and Rachel Gibson’s hockey books.

    As for courtesan books, I just finished Jeannie Lin’s My Fair Concubine and loved it.

  14. MD

    My favorite sport is hockey, hands down. For my very first ever hockey game, I went with a mild-mannered librarian friend and she yelled “Murder!” multiple times. That sold me on the sport forever.

    Aug 06, 2013 @ 20:47:40

    I loved watching my kids play soccer. I like to play volleyball, ride horses and would love to try archery (even before Hunger Games and Brave). I didn’t even realize “Sports Romance” was a sub-genre until recently but I enjoy reading most romances and have Jaci Burton on my wish list.

    I love small town books (romance or cozy mysteries), Heather’s book sounds like something I’d enjoy

    Favorite courtesan book? I’m sure I’ve read tons but Courage to Love by Samantha Kane is the only one I’m able to think of right now.

    Aug 06, 2013 @ 22:01:39

    I love football the most, having grown up in a football-watching family. As soon as pre-season started, my mom would set up her huge quilting rack and sew, listening/watching college and pro games. I didn’t inherit Mama’s quilting genes, but football games are always playing in the background during the fall season. My hubby teases sometimes that he’s a football widower!

  73. Kenna
    Aug 06, 2013 @ 22:05:30

    Aug 07, 2013 @ 00:49:16

    I’m really not a ‘real’ sports fan, but reading stories with sports as the background, or as an integral part of the story — well, those I’ve liked. I did watch basketball when I was in college – didn’t miss a game. I played in the band in high school, and we played at all home games, and even some away ones – but it wasn’t until I was a senior in high school that someone finally explained what they were doing (10 yds advance w/ no more than 4 plays to do it).
    Not sure what ‘courtesan book’ I might have read, so I certainly don’t have a favorite. I do know I have loved the synopsis of each of the books by Jeannie Lin.
    I believe in 2nd chances — in life, and in love. And sometimes in life we need even 3rd and 4th chances. In love, first time around happiness is / would be wonderful; but, if 1st time plays out, 2nd chance at love to find a HEA is awesome. And, does Heather Lire’s novel have a hint of mystery as well?

  99. Tara
    Aug 07, 2013 @ 01:38:26

    I think it’s great that authors have give aways. Love Jaci Burton. And would love to have the chance to win from any of the authors.

    I like playing sports but I don’t usually watch too many of them. I do love reading sport romances though. Football, soccer, hockey are my favourites.

  103. Sally

    I love watching baseball and football, and I’m a sucker for any type of sports romance. I first read Bella Andre and through her found Jaci Burton. Love them both!

    I love any kind of sports romance, but my favorite kinds right now are probably hockey and football. Can’t ever go wrong with hot men though in any situation! ;)

    I haven’t picked up Jaci Burton in a long, long while and man don’t I love some of those covers. ;) Recently piced up Jeannie Lin for the first time and I really enjoyed Butterfly Swords. Loved the setting.

    Favorite sport? Baseball! Favorite courtesan romance? Probably “A Notorious Countess Confesses,” although her courtesan days are well in the past.

    I love to play and watch(!!) a lot of sports, from voleyball and football to swimming, so I don’t really have a favorite. But my fav sports romance is definitely Jaci’s Play by Play series. :)

    I haven’t read many sports-based romances, but I love the hockey playing shifters in the Shelly Laurenston books!

    Pro basketball definitely. Last year, out of 82 regular Chicago Bulls games, I watched about 79 of them. That doesn’t even take into account other teams or playoff games. I literally watched at least part of every playoff game. Yeah, my husband loves my little obsession. ;-)

    I’m afraid the “courtesan” isn’t my favorite trope in romance novels, so I can’t say I’ve read many…I’ve read and enjoyed A Notorious Countess Confesses by Julie Anne Long (but then I generally enjoy everything she’s written, so it wasn’t about the courtesan thing at all). I’m also looking forward to reading A Gentleman Undone by Cecilia Grant, which has been in my TBR list forever. Jeannie Lin – I’m so excited to read her as I’ve heard so much about her!

    I am trying once again to see if I can ‘score’ one or more of the amazon Jaci Burton books.
    I am an all around sports fan. Hockey, since I’m Canadian; Football, have you seen those butts?? And all those tall long tattooed drinks in basketball dont hurt the eyes either!!

    I have entered about every contest I come across and applied for ever ARC available, without luck. Perhaps it is not in the cards for me, it certainly is not in the budget, but since I love my blog and there are many more good writers out there (even though they’re not Jaci Burton!), there will always be books to read and review to write……..I just had to try one more time!!!

    Thanks for an awesome contest!!

    Favorite sport is football.
    In school I dated a football jock. I later married a former high school football jock. And I raised a football jock *facepalm.* We eat, sleep and breathe the sport in this household!
    Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway chance!

    Also, my favorite sports romance is probably It Had to Be You by SEP.

    My favourite sport is hockey! It’s the only sport that I watch actual games to cheer for my hometown team. As for sports romance, I’d read about any sport.
