Autumn's Harvest Means Cuddle Monkeys Blog Hop!

What do you love most about Autumn? The turning leaves? Brisk chill in the air? The shift toward the holiday season?

One of my favorite things about fall is that it's no longer hot and humid. Living in the South means a whole lotta sweating! Finally when the temps cool and the wind picks up, I can stop hiding out in my air-conditioned house. LOL

Seriously, people, it's hot in Tennessee. But even hotter, are the heroic cuties who populate the pages of romance novels!

What is your favorite thing about Autumn? What are your favorite Autumn stories? Well, we authors are ready to share our favorite Autumn stories and why we love snuggling in the cold.  *wink*

    Thanks for the giveaways

  33. I love autumn with all the brilliant colors: oranges, yellows and reds of leaves. I love crisp, cool mornings where the sky is so blue it looks endless and the air is so fresh in your lungs. I love snuggling up in a warm throw on a cold autumn day with a good book. Of course, I love snuggling up with a good book about anytime of the year. I love Thanksgiving because it is a time to remember all the many blessings in my life and express thanks. I love baking spicy pumpkin pies with dollops of cream.

    The last book I finished was “Unravel Me” by Kendall Ryan. I liked it because the hot story line was so unexpected. I also love the steamy passion of the likes of Sylvia Day and Sylvain Reynard, but I hate mentioning favorite authors because the list is long. I appreciate the many styles authors use to weave stories of mystery, love, intrigue, preternatural and inspiration. I love reading because I can go anywhere, any time in my mind and imagine indescribable things.


  34. My favorite thing about Autumn/Fall is the changing color of the leaves, orange, yellow, red, even purple. They are so pretty. My least favorite thing is raking up those pretty leaves. LOL I love to curl up by the fire and read a hot romance book on a cold fall evening. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>
