I know most of you are out and about having a good time at barbeques and 4th of July fireworks instead of staying in and reading my blog today. But for you diehard readers, please drop a line and let me know you were here. If you do, you get entered into the CRAFTIE LADIES contest for a chance to win all 4 Love Inspired Suspense books for July.
I love the 4th of July. Not just because of all the reasons listed above but because of the reason for the holiday. Patriotism is something we've been hearing a lot about in the media these days. We see it in romance novels as well. There's nothing more appealing than a patriotic hero! That's for sure.
I got to thinking about all those patriotic heroes, both in romance novels and in real life. My husband is a former marine and has a strong love of his country. I love reading military romances because I can always see that strong love of country in those heroes and it reminds me of my husband.
Tell me about YOUR favorite patriotic hero. Is there a particular book that you love because the hero has a strong love of his country...and the heroine? Is there a person in your life that inspires you because of their patriotism? If so, let me know. I'd love to hear your story and by leaving a message, you'll be entered into our drawing for 4 free Love Inspired Suspense books for July!
I also want to let you know that eHarlequin has the August books (Her Only Protector) up for sale at 20% off and free shipping until July 7th! This is a great way to get your stash of books at a discount and save money on shipping as well. Check out eHarlequin.com!
