Dream Lover Giveaway!

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011 • 2 Comments


For the month of June, I will be giving away autographed copies of Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance in exchange for your reviews on Amazon! I had intended to do this for the month of May, but time got away from me… so June, it is!!  Dream Lover is a fantastic collection of paranormal erotic romance from 17 awesome erotica and erotic romance authors. In addition to stories about shapeshifters, ghosts, mermaids, vampires, demons and angels, the book also includes a foreword by erotic romance goddess Megan Hart.  The anthology has gotten some lovely reviews (despite some of the Amazon Vine comments—argh!) and received a 4-star review from RT Book Reviews (formerly Romantic Times.

If you are willing to write a review of Dream Lover for Amazon, email me at kristina @ with your mailing address. You must be over 18 to receive a copy of the book and you must have an Amazon account (otherwise you can’t post the review).  I will be throwing in some extra goodies while they last—Dream Lover buttons, postcards and brownies from Fairytale Brownies.

If you’ve already purchased a copy of Dream Lover (thank you!!) and are willing to review it for Amazon, send me a link to your Amazon review along with your mailing address and I’ll send you the other goodies!

Please Note: Reviews must be posted on Amazon by June 30. Do not post your mailing address here or send it to any other address other than kristina @  Thanks!
