Follwer Love Giveaway Hop

Thanks to Inspired Kathy from I Am A Reader Not, a Writer who is hosting the Follower Love Giveaway Hop!

Seeing as how this is the month of February, I'm giving away two books for this blog hop that deal with love:

Giveaway #1:
The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton
Published: July 2010 by Headline Review (U.K.)
Pages: 406
Audience: Adult 

A rural idyll: that's what Catherine is seeking when she sells her house in England and moves to a tiny hamlet in the Cévennes mountains. With her divorce in the past and her children grown, she is free to make a new start, and her dream is to set up in business as a seamstress. But this is a harsh and lonely place when you're no longer just here on holiday. There is French bureaucracy to contend with, not to mention the mountain weather, and the reserve of her neighbours, including the intriguing Patrick Castagnol. And that's before the arrival of Catherine's sister, Bryony. - from Goodreads

Giveaway #2:
Glimpse by Stacey Wallace Benefiel
Published: May 2010 by Stacey Wallace Benefiel
Pages: 262
Audience: YA

Zellie Wells has a devastating crush on Avery Adams, the son of her mom’s high school sweetheart. At her sixteenth birthday party, held in the basement of her dad’s church, she finally finds the courage to talk to him. Turns out, the devastating crush is mutual.

As Avery takes her hand and leads her out onto the makeshift dance floor, Zellie is overwhelmed by her first vision of his death; shocking because not only are they both covered in his blood, but they’re old, like 35, and she is pregnant.

Afraid to tell anyone about the vision, (she’d just be labeled a freaky black magic witch, right?) Zellie keeps the knowledge of Avery’s future to herself and tries to act like any other teenager in love. When they get caught on their way to a secret rendezvous by her mom and his dad, they are forbidden to see each other.

Convinced that their parents are freaking out unnecessarily, Avery and Zellie vow to be together no matter what. They continue their relationship in secret until Zellie learns that their parents are just trying to prevent her and Avery from suffering like they did. The visions are hereditary, they’re dangerous, and if they stay together the visions will come true.

Now Zellie must choose between severing all ties with Avery, like her mom did to prevent his father’s death, and finding a way to change Avery’s future.

  15. Hi,
    I am a new follower. My favorite love scene is in the book Scarlett(i'm reading it now). Rhett and Scarlett has spent the day out on the ocean when a storm comes up and the boat capsizes. The water was very cold and Rhett thought he was going to loose Scarlett but when they made it back to shore. Well you know what happened next but the next morning Rhett regrets giving into her and decides to leave town AGAIN.

  16. My favorite romantic scene is the beach scene in From Here To Eternity.

  18. Oh when Jaime tries to send Claire back to her future world in Outlander but she turns and runs back to him. SUCH a good book.

  19. Somewhere in Time!! I love that movie and there are several scenes that take my breath.


  20. My favorite scene is when Andie MacDowell and Gerard Depardieu have to say goodbye, at the end of Green Card. They drove each other crazy the whole movie, and then realize they're in love. But he ends up getting deported. It's an intense scene.

  21. The most romantic scene that I love is in the movie "A walk to Remember" when Lane builds a microscope for Jamie in secret so she can see the comet that only comes once every so many years and also when he proudly takes her hand in front of all of his cool friends and defends her in front of them.
    To me, that was just so romantic. The whole movie was like that. I loved how he made it his goal to have her get as much out of life as she could despite her disease.
    Having a progressive disease myself, I see my family doing things like that for me and it touches my heart.
    We can't ever forget that it's the small things that are most important in life and in love.
