*CLOSED* Summer Romance Book Blog Hop (Giveaway ends 8/16)

Welcome to the Summer Romance Book Blog Hop, hosted by our friends at Literary Addicts!  This hop features a bunch of bloggers who are each giving away something to do with summer romance.  The list of the participating blogs is at the end of this post so be sure to check it out after you enter here.

I’m not a huge romance reader, I’ll admit it.  I used to be when I was in high school but it’s just not my thing anymore.  However, my mom is a huge fan so I’m constantly getting the books she’s already read.  So, I have one of her cast-offs to offer you:


This is a double feature from Susan Elizabeth Phillips, featuring Nobody’s Baby But Mine and This Heart of Mine.

Here’s the descriptions of the books:

Nobody’s Baby But Mine

Genius physics professor Dr. Jane Darling desperately wants a baby. But finding a father won’t be easy. Jane’s super-intelligence made her feel like a freak when she was growing up, and she’s determined to spare her own child that suffering. Which means she must find someone very special to father her child. Someone who’s more comfortable working out his muscles than exercising his brain.

Cal Bonner, the Chicago Stars’ legendary quarterback, seems like the perfect choice. But his champion good looks and down-home ways are deceiving. Dr. Jane is about to learn a little too late that this good ol’ boy is a lot smarter than he lets on—and he’s not about to be used and abandoned by a brainy, baby-mad schemer.

This Heart of Mine

Molly Somerville loves her career as the creator of the Daphne the Bunny children’s book series, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. She has a reputation for trouble that started even before she gave away her fifteen-million-dollar inheritance. Then there’s her long-term crush on the quarterback for the Chicago Stars football team her sister owns—that awful, gorgeous Kevin Tucker, a man who can’t even remember Molly’s name!

One night Kevin barges into Molly’s not-quite-perfect life and turns it upside down. Unfortunately, the Ferrari-driving riving, poodle-hating jock isn’t as shallow as she wishes he were, and she soon finds herself at a place called Wind Lake. Surrounded by paintbox cottages, including a charming old bed-and-breakfast, Molly and Kevin battle their attraction and each other as they face one of life’s most important lessons. Sometimes love hurts, sometimes it makes you mad as hell, and sometimes—if you’re lucky—it can heal in a most unexpected way.

Please note that this is a pre-read edition and has some slight wear.  It’s still in very good condition and has lots of reading life left to it.  Also, I do have cats, so please take that into consideration before you enter.

This book looks like it would be a great beach read and would last most people an entire vacation.  This seems like a book that I would take with me to a vacation rental and leave behind so somebody else could enjoy it in the same environment.  After reading the description of This Heart of Mine, now I’m a little sad about giving it away!  It’s been sitting on my shelf for awhile though, so it’s time to go on to somebody who will actually get to reading it.

    I feel ok today I guess — tired, but if we would not stay up until midnight or 1am, that would help! This week I feel busy, as we were gone ALL day Monday (& hospital waiting is tiring);, away from home a bit more than the morning yesterday; will be gone most of tomorrow, and again Friday afternoon!
    I also feel very non-productive as I spend WAY-AY-AY too much time on this computer! 🙂

    I’m not entering this giveaway since I already own both of these books. Just wanted to stop by and say that I’m not usually a strictly romance reader either, but when I do read one SEP is one author I go for, especially the Chicago Stars series! Plus, Nobody’s Baby But Mine has one of my favorite scenes in it. “You’re a cereal killer!”
