Autumn's Harvest Blog H0P with Mia Downing!

Winner of Mia's blog giveaway is: 

 Dita Skarste! 

Thanks to all who participated. I'll be having another giveaway 

Friday, Nov 16 to celebrate the release of my newest M/M, Just Ask. 

What do you love about Autumn and Fall? I have to tell you, it's my favorite season! I was married in October, with pumpkins and gourds as my centerpieces, sunflowers and dried Straw flowers in my bouquets. With the cool nights (and recent snow for us!) it's the perfect time to curl up with a good book and sip warm cider. Usually I'd light a nice, scented candle, but after a week of no power, I'm keeping the lights on! 

All of my books are set in every other season but autumn, except for my work in progress, which is set in fall in a fictional town called Freedome, Maine. The hero is Marek Young, and he's an antiquities expert and self-proclaimed rich recluse. He's also sexy as hell, with jet black hair, blue eyes and a confident swagger. Skye Bellew thinks he looks (and often acts) like a pirate. He goes after what he wants and he's bossy to boot, and he definitely takes prisoners. 

BUT, a secret...two of my Spy Games characters get engaged in the fall, and another set gets married in the fall! You'll have to read all three books to figure out who! 
Let's Get Hopping! 

From Nov 9 to Nov 12 over 200 Authors and Bloggers will share their favorite things about those sexy men we know and love. And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.
But that's not all....
We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!
Now what are those prizes?
1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $50 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains 10+ paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more! (USA only)
In addition, I'll be giving away BOOKS! 
Spy Games: Lethal Limits (Book 2) will be FREE on Amazon: Buy Link  through Nov 11. To celebrate, I'll be giving away:
1 signed print copy of Spy Games: Trained for Seduction (Book 1) 
1 e-copy of Spy Games: Birthday Games (Book 1.5)
If you have them, have read them and loved them, I'll send you something from the back list or my newest m/m, Just Ask, out 11/16

My favorite thing about Autumn/Fall is the changing color of the leaves. 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. <^_^>

Thanks for joining in the hop. It was great to be introduced to your work.
My favorite part about autumn is that the cool weather gives me the perfect excuse to keep my oven full of yummy deliciousness that I really can't do during two of the three other seasons. I love the feeling of being able to have yummy stuff baking while I nestle in with a good read.
