My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop Hosted is by Reading Between the Wines Book Club & As the Pages Turn. The hop will run from 12:01 AM February 1st through to 11:59 PM February 5th, 2012.

What better way to celebrate the month of LOVE then with your favorite book boyfriend? Whether you have a valentine or not, the swoon worthy heroes we find in romances can’t be matched anyway! So why not put on those naughty underwear and curl up with one of these steamy reads this year instead? Make you Valentine’s Day perfect by joining the My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop where fellow bloggers offer you the chance to win some of their favorite book boyfriends!

My favorite book boyfriend is a fighter. He’s tough and, let’s face it, grumpy as hell. But he’s also calm and incredibly gentle with our abused heroine. I love how he doesn’t take any shit from anyone, even from the heroine, but he takes care of her and let’s her be herself.

He’s…Clay Powers from Defying the Odds by Kele Moon!

In all honesty, that’s now how I pictured the hero or heroine, but hey, they are pretty hot this way. And the cover is so sparkly! Yes, I’m such a girl. Anyway, here’s the blurb (via GoodReads):

When struggling waitress Melody Dylan gives a handsome, lonely stranger a simple gift she has no clue her life is about to take a drastic turn.

The stranger ends up being Clay Powers, a famous UFC heavyweight fighter. Clay’s large build and dangerous fists have always intimidated. People in his hometown keep their distance and Clay is fine with that. Everything changes when a new waitress at the local diner buys him a piece of pie on thanksgiving. Touched by the gesture when it’s obvious she can barely afford to survive, her warm smile and lush body churn up powerful feelings that leave Clay wanting more from her than pie.

Melody is running from her past and the small, country town of Garnet is the perfect hiding place. With an ex-husband after her and scars from her abusive marriage etched deep, the last thing she expects is to fall for a man who makes a living with his fists, but she can’t resist Clay or the tender connection they share.

Finding love in the most unlikely of places, the passion is undeniable, but Clay and Melody know their haunted pasts and unpredictable futures leave the odds stacked against them.

Sounds great, right? It lives up to its promise. Besides, there are some serious perks to dating a well-trained, fighting man….

Er…protection. That’s what I meant by perks. Yeah. *grins*


I’m giving away, to one lucky commenter, a gift copy of Defying the Odds (you must be able to accept this in Kindle gift format), as well as a copy of my own martial arts erotic romance, Below The Belt (any format). Tell me what you think about a fighting hero who’s tough on everyone else but oh-so-gentle with the heroine? Adorable, yes?


Edit: Congrats to Stella who won this giveaway!
