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, …

Book Lovers Book Club: August 2013 Voting Results

Good morning everybody!

It is now time to reveal the how the July votes went!

August’s book will be:

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty’s anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.

Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen’s Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her …

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
