LOVESTRUCK Giveaway Hop!

Posted August 13, 2013 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Uncategorized / 124 Comments



It is time to hop again!  The Lovestruck Giveaway Hop is here and we want to take a moment to thank all the bloggers and authors that are joining us this time around.  This is our second year running the LOVESTRUCK Hop and we wouldn’t be able to do it (or any of our hops) without you.

Giveaway Hop Hosted by us, runs August 14 – August 20

Love-struck: (adjective) having a passionate or overwhelming feeling of love; smitten


While thinking about this a few authors came to mind.  So we couldn’t narrow this post down to one in particular…


You know what is sexier than a smokin’ hot man with mad skillz in the bedroom? A smokin’ hot man with mad skillz in the bedroom with a Stetson on. That’s right ladies and gents; cowboys. I don’t know what it is about cowboys, it might be because it brings to mind ruggedly handsome alpha males with sexy hats and a knicker meltingly hot drawl, and nobody does them quite like Lorelei James. Not only are they all of the above, but their sometimes tender, sometimes damaged souls melt not only my knickers, but my heart as well. Plus, they often invite over their equally hot cowboy friends for sexy fun times. And all that is why I am so lovestruck by Lorelei James that I am pretty sure it counts as a KO.


Janie Fitzhugh and Abe Lawson have long been divorced and living apart. Now she’s back in town, a changed woman-making cattleman Abe want to wrangle an invitation to her bed…

To get his dream ranch, Renner Jackson has partnered with spoiled daddy’s girl Tierney Pratt. She thinks she can handle this cowboy, but Renner won’t make it easy. Little do they know they will be entangled in ways neither dreamed possible.



But our love is not only cowboys, we have a soft (or hard) spot for rockstars as well.  In a sea of rockstars that blend together nowadays, I find comfort in reading that story done right, just like Lauren Dane has always been able to do it.  The Brown Siblings caught my interested from the very first page I read about this crazy young chick named Erin.  Strong women, sexy men, sensual stories.  A master at her craft who will suck you in and make you feel like a member of the Brown’s inner circle, that sense of family that leaves you all tingly inside… Lauren Dane has left me lovestruck with all of her work but especially those Brown bad boys.  Tattoos, fame, friends and great sex.  I’m hooked.



Gillian Forrester spent most of her life running from who and what she came from. Until Miles came along. From the moment she held the tiny newborn her older sister didn’t want, Gillian stopped running and began to build a life for herself and her adopted son. Now, thirteen years later, as Gillian’s sister lay dying, she reveals the father’s identity and makes Gillian promise to find him.

Adrian Brown is the epitome of the successful rock star. He’s seen and done it all, with few regrets. It takes a lot to shock him but the bombshell that he has a thirteen-year-old son rocks his world. And Adrian is even more surprised when the buttoned-up, elegant woman who’s raising Miles snags his erotic and romantic attention.

The last thing Gillian expected was to find herself getting hot and heavy with a person like Adrian. But as much as she wants to open up and give herself fully to this amazing man, she’s afraid the secrets of her past and Adrian’s problems with trusting people may keep them apart for good. If love isn’t enough can they find the trust they need?



We have a print copy of each of these books up for grabs!


Now Keep Hopping!

    I have read quite a few books from different authors that have left me lovestruck. It’s difficult to just pick one.

  4. wyndwhisper

    I have lots of authors that leave me that way but a few that come right to mind are Sable Hunter(great tender heroes), Delilah Devlin(smoking hot books) , Maya Banks (the Coulters-enough said),and Becca Van’s Slick Rock Series that I’m reading right now.

  5. Anything by Cherise Sinclair (Master of the Mountian *swoon!*), Lauren Dane, Lorelei James and Kristen Ashley leave me lovestruck and looking for those kinds of heroes in real life. Sadly, I’ve yet to find any. (this won’t stop me from looking though! 😀 )

  6. MK

    Totally can’t oick just one! Patricia Briggs, Laurell K Hamilton, Diana Gabaldon are a few of my very fav. Reading takes me into whole other worlds

  7. Amy R

    I love books by Lorelei James, Lauren Dane, Maya Banks, Jaci Burton, Kate Pearce, Kristan Higgins, Jill Shalvis and Victoria Dahl just to name a few of my favorites.

  8. Oh there are so many to pick from. Lauren Dane, Elizabeth Reyes, Jasinda Wilder, Shayla Black, Cat Johnson, Lorelei James, and J.R. Ward. I could go on and on and on. These ladies put a lot of passion into their characters and story line. You can’t help but fall in love with their books.

  9. Elizabeth H.

    Maya Banks is an author that leaves me lovestruck because her characters often learn the hard way how to love!

  10. Elizabeth P

    sheesh I don’t think I can pick just one :/ …. Lorelei James, Cherise Sinclair, kallypso masters, Lori foster, Katie macallister, cherry Adair, and probably quite a few others

  11. Kelsey Summer

    I have a lot of authors that have left me lovestruck, but lately Laura Kaye’s books seem to be the ones. I love the Anemoi series, and the Vampire King series.


  12. Aileen Smith

    There are several authors who leave me love struck. Kristen Ashley tops the list. I love a really good badass. Her male characters are Alpha, Hot and Honorable. Awesome combination.

  13. Starla Y.

    Kathleen Brooks, Jessica Scott, Terri Anne Browning, Kathi S. Barton are some of my favorite authors. However I just read Real by Katy, Evans and I loved it! Remmington and Brooke were such strong characters I could not stop reading!!

  14. Denise Z

    So often ending a story with a sigh and starting a new one with the excited hopeful pitter-patter, my idea of the super guy is not necessarily the one with the washboard abs and great hair, often he is the odd guy and one who always tops the list is Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files series – he just makes me swoon 🙂

  15. Leanna h

    I love Lorelei James and her HOT COWBOYS. I never thought cowboys were so sexy until I read her rough riders series.

  16. Mel Bourn

    There are a couple of authors that leave me love struck. One is Lorelei James. She got me hooked on the cowboys. YUM. Then there is Bianca Sommerland. Her hockey series, Dartmouth Cobras are just amazing.

  17. Aly P

    I’ll tick them off by subgenres 😀
    PNR: Nalini Singh, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Kresley Cole
    UF: Karen Chance, Karen Marie Moning and Patricia Brigs
    HR: Eloisa James and Sherry Thomas
    Contemps and Erotic romance: Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Julie James, Cherise Sinclair and Olivia Cunning

    I think I finished :))

  18. Viki S.

    The first author to do me in was Larissa Ione with Wraith. I fell for him hard! He is still my book boyfriend. Cynthia Eden’s Niol and Gena Showalter’s Maddox are my other two that I’d die for :).

  19. Renee B

    I’m a sucker for the happily ever after. Romance books almost always have the HEA and I love them because of it. I especially like the PNR books with hot sexy alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines.
    Shelly Laurenston, Jet Mykles, Bianca D’Arc, Monette Michaels, Thea Harrison, S. E. Smith, Laurann Dohner, Christine Warren, Vivian Arend, and Eve Langlais all leave me lovestruck because they have sex, humor, hot men, kick ass heroines and romance in their books.
    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

  20. Melissa Dianne

    There are so many to choose from. Lauren Dane, Maya Banks, J.R. Ward, Lorelei James, Jaci Burton, etc. Too many to pick!

  21. Janice Hougland

    The author who left me lovestruck was Laveryle Spencer. I hadn’t read a romance since my teen years, but when a friend loaned me her book (Morning Glory)–I was a goner for Ms. Spencer’s books. There is a depth of emotion in her books that elicits tears and laughter and sadness and excitement in this reader like no others. I’ve read many other romances since reading Ms. Spencer’s books that are very good and I love them as well. But it was Ms. Spencer who started me on the road of romance reading, so she has a soft spot in my heart. 🙂

  22. elizabeth gray

    Wow, where to begin. I would say Jude Deveraux, Nora Roberts, Nalini Singh, Pamela Clare, just to name a few. Each author has their own take on romance and know just the right word at the right time to send the reader through different emotions, to feel like they are the characters and the action is happening to them.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. BookAttict

    Ilona Andrews (Curran!), Stacia Kane (Terrible!) and J.D. Robb (Roarke!).

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  25. PamC.

    Oh I would love these. As for who left me love struck so many. Toni Blake, Jaci Burton, Lori Foster, Nora Roberts, Julia Quinn, I could go on.

  26. Sebella Blue

    I’m going to go with a “new2me” author I started reading this year, Kerrianne Coombes. She has a way with a fairy tale.

  27. I would definitely have to say Rachel Vincent. I instantly fell in love with her Shifters series and I’ve missed the books ever since I finished.

  28. Diane Sallans

    I do love Lauren Dane’s stories, but haven’t read Lorelei’s books yet. I also got hooked on Lara Adrian when I first read one of her books.

  29. Glittergirl

    Both of these authors are awesome and I’d love to win their books as I don’t have them yet.
    My new book boyfriends this summer are
    Tyler Longfoot from Samanthe Beck’s Private Practice, the sex teacher
    Joey Manzetti from Cheryl Brooks’ Undeniable, the rock guitar composer with a secret kink 😉

  30. ki pha

    Which author has me Love-Struck? A Lot of authors! LOL Julia Quinn, Lori Wilde, Shana Galen, Katharine Ashe, Robyn DeHeart…ect…!!!

  31. Janet Watts

    Thanks for the giveaway. SC Stephens’ Thoughtless series left me lovestruck. Why???……KK, that’s why.

  32. Carol L

    So many Authors leave me love struck.
    Karen Marie Moning, Sue Ellen Wolfender, Diana Gabaldon,Maya Banks, Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter and Pamela Clare just to name some. I love Highlanders first and foremost and their Highlanders are true Heroes. A great giveaway opportunity.

  33. Timitra

    Both these authors leave me lovestruck because they know how to write heroes that I wish could walk off the pages into real life.

  34. Krysten M

    I’m going to have to say Jaci Burton, Jill Shalvis, and Kresley Cole for sure 🙂 Just can’t get enough!

  35. Leni

    Marilyn Lee, Linda Lael Miller, and Claire Thompson are a few that do that for me. Their stories have characters that face problems that come their way and the stories move nicely.

  36. Betty Hamilton

    Lorelei James with her” ruggedly handsome alpha males with sexy hats and a knicker meltingly hot drawl” leaves me love struck!

  37. Rita Domingos

    Diana Gabaldon makes me falling in love with her books in Outlander series, she writes so well that makes me love Scotland, make me cry and laugh with her historys and travels.

  38. k johnston

    Mine would be Jill Shalvis. I never knew an Alpha male could be so sexy til I read one of her books! 🙂

  39. Crystal Guidroz

    Never Enough was favorite of the book descriptions above =)
    I am definitely more a rocker girl than a cowboy girl, well as far as books go and reading about them. However I would never turn away a sexy cowboy in real life!

  40. MsChris1161

    The latest author to leave me smitten and dumbstruck after reading her book is Mary Ann Rivers with Brian Newburgh in The Story Guy .

    My first choice is usually a book that makes me laugh out loud, but the ones that stay with me are books like this that make me cry. Not necessarily because my heart is broken, but because I feel the love so deeply it brings tears to my eyes. That takes talent. Talent Mary Ann Rivers proves she has with The Story Guy.

  41. Brittney

    Lorelei James has left me lovestruck because she makes the characters come alive for the readers and draws the readers into the stories.

  42. Sue G.

    Jax Cullen from Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis stuck with me. He just sounds like an all around nice guy who looks hot! 😉

  43. Coleen B.

    I love Lorelei James and her alpha males. The sex scenes are hot, the women can hold their own and you get all this with an unforgetable story.

  44. Angela McCallister is definitely an author able to leave a person lovestruck, as is Calinda B. Eden Summers can have you falling in love with her people all over the place and if you haven’t read J.T. Geissinger, you are missing out on some serious chances to become lovestruck.

  45. ELF

    Lauren Dane is one of the many authors that I am Lovestruck by, usually this is because of the deep emotionalism she (and many other great authors) conveys that links me to the characters.

  46. Linda

    My latest read had me love struck for the hero, May Day by Bebe Balocca.
    Sam was *rawr*, built like a Mac truck, knew his way around a woman and wasn´t afraid of telling her what he wanted.. *happy sigh*
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Saturday!

  47. There are a few authors which left me lovestruck but off the top of my head it will have to be Anne Bishop and Ilona Andrews… maybe because I just finished re-reading (again) Written In Red by Anne Bishop and Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews 🙂

  48. BookLady

    Love Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter Series! She has created an amazing world of fantastic characters. Thanks for the giveaway.

  49. Vanessa N.

    Hard to pick just on. I love Charles from Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega series and Snow from Felicity Heaton’s VET series. They both made me fall for their characters and sucked me into the story.

  50. Jessica B

    One author that has left my awestruck is Maya Banks. I see her name and I have to buy her book. Her books are so hot and ranges and never disappoints for me.

  51. Ronda Thayer

    I have a lot of author’s that i love. Here a a few: Lora leigh, Lorelei James, Lauren Dane, J.R. Ward, Gena Showalter, Laurell K. Hamilton, and Lori Foster. I could go on, but I think you get the point.
