Fall in love with The Sullivans! I ramble about romance novels + there’s a fantastic giveaway!

The Sullivans by Bella Andre is a romantic series about a family whose love know no bounds. There are currently seven books in this series and I read them all in about a week, not in order, mind you. The series can be read out of order as each book is a different love story about a Sullivan family member.

After reading all seven books one after the other, I learned three things.

  1. One must NOT read more than two romance novels in succession.
  2. One must NOT read more than two romance novels of a series in succession.
  3. There is such a thing as too much romance novels (probably the reason for the first two things in this silly list).

Okay, I think I’m just suffering from romance novel overload and that’s likely the reason for the rambling below.

Fall in love with The Sullivans and win fabulous prizes! (An iPad Mini, Kindle Fire, Nook Color, and Kobo eReader, and Amazon and iTunes gift cards up for grabs!)

When I heard about Novel Publicity’s biggest blog tour in history, I knew I just couldn’t pass it up even if the tour was for a romance series. I mean, I don’t hate romance novels, but I would prefer a fantasy or sci-fi book over one any time. Romantic novels are full of eye-roll and cringe worthy scenes, but sometimes it’s nice to just turn off the brain and get into the emotional mush and sexy banter.

Anyway, I read the first few books on The Sullivans and I will be posting quickie reviews sometime this week, but for today, please enjoy this guest post by Bella Andre, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of the contemporary romance series, The Sullivans. Then read on to learn how you can win huge prizes as part of this blog tour, including special romantic swag baskets for each book, an iPad Mini, Kindle Fire, Nook Color, and Kobo eReader, and Amazon and iTunes gift cards!
