Romance and Me: The National Clichés Part I

Hi Everyone!

Today we’ll be talking National Clichés! What are those you ask? Glad you asked! 😉 In (romance) novels there are some recurring tropes/acrs, like the Italian playboy, Greek magnate and Southern cowboy whose drawl will make the heroine melt. So I was curious to know: are these things accurate or purely romanticized? And who better to ask than people from those countries? So join us as we tackle some of these national clichés, and if you have some questions for our international Book Lovers Inc. team just leave them in a comment.

Jackie: I’ve been trying to think of any Canadian clichés I may have read about in books but while nothing specific comes to mind as far as the actual books go, one thing always pops up: Canadians are very nice. Plus we apologize for everything. I’m not sure how true this is exactly, …

Sunday Cravings

Hello Book Lovers! I’m filling in for Anna while she’s buried in wedding preparations. After burning through many must reads last week, I’m bound-and-determined to get a little sleep. But publishers just keep on releasing more books! Time to add to our never-ending TBR piles. Up this week….

Stella: What the Bride Wore by Jade Lee.

Grant Benton, Earl of Crowle, finally has the funds he always pretended to have, and what he wants now is a woman. That woman is Lady Irene Knopp, who spends her days helping debutantes plan their weddings. A recent widow, Irene longs for love again, but she’s afraid to risk her heart, especially to the notorious Grant Benton.

I just read my very first Jade Lee story, Winning a Bride, the #2.5 novella in her Bridal Favors series. It was lovely. I loved the fesity, unorthodox heroine and the wonderfully tortured hero, so I’m excited and can’t …

The Ice Cream Making Winner post

Hey Everyone!

As I’ve told you last week we have particularly hot weather. When it cools down we have 35-36 C degrees, but yesterday during the midday hours in the sun it was 43 C! That’s hot enough to melt. So to survive the heat and cool down I’ve been making a variety of ice creams: from mango coconut sherbet, to minty watermelon popsicles, to tricolor coconut-raspberry-mango frozen terrine, and my latest plan is to make these lavender peach sangria popsicles. (Just a warning though if you decide to make these recipes, I’ve found that the quantity of sugar written in them was way too much, I usually used about 1/3 of the original quantities.) Don’t they look tempting? Yum! 😀 So before I go off to slurp some popsicles, here are this week’s winners:

Congrats to

the lucky winner of an ebook copy of Tempted by Her …

The Book Lovers Pick of the Litter for July

Otherwise known as the “squee on me, people” post. Read carefully, I did NOT say “pee on me”. This is the “picks” post and not the “pans” post. If we ever decide to do a snarky “pans” post, Cass is going to have to write it.

I thought we’d try a “which books we squeed over the most this month” post. This is it. The books The Book Lovers loved in July. What we read in July, not necessarily what was published, or what we reviewed.

Fangirling was permitted and even encouraged. Oohing and aahing begins here.

Anna: Less than a Gentleman by Kerrelyn Sparks: I may not have yet read Sparks’ very famous pnr series but I’m definitely in love with her Historical Romance one! I read last year the first book in the Historical series and I immediately fell in love with Sparks’ writing style and her ability to …

Reality Bites….

Fortitude Scott’s life is a mess. A degree in film theory has left him with zero marketable skills, his job revolves around pouring coffee, his roommate hasn’t paid rent in four months, and he’s also a vampire. Well, sort of. He’s still mostly human.

But when a new vampire comes into his family’s territory and young girls start going missing, Fort can’t ignore his heritage anymore. His mother and his older, stronger siblings think he’s crazy for wanting to get involved. So it’s up to Fort to take action, with the assistance of Suzume Hollis, a dangerous and sexy shape-shifter. Fort is determined to find a way to outsmart the deadly vamp, even if he isn’t quite sure how.

But without having matured …
