Giveaway: Nora Roberts-Queen of Romance


So, you probably don't know but I, Crystal, have an obsession with Nora Roberts.  Before my Twilight phase and year of nothing but Young Adult I was glued to Ms. Roberts pages.  I have read several of her novels and I also enjoy her In Death series.  There is just something about the way she writes that totally sucks me in!  So, after reading my blog roomies (Brandi) review of her newest trilogy (Thanks Brandi!) I thought to myself  "Hey wouldn't it be cool to spotlight Nora on Waves for the next few months??!!" and so I am!  Once a month for the next few months I am going to spotlight a few of her books.  They might be one of her series' her In Death series or just a collection of books of hers that I absolutely love. Are you ready for the fun part....in addition to the spotlight we are going to giveaway the books that are discussed!  YAY!  I mean I don't know anybody who couldn't use a little Nora in her/his life =D  For this months pick I am going to highlight my all time favorite series by Ms.Roberts, her Bride Quartet series...

Bed of Roses (Bride Quartet, #2)Vision in White (Bride Quartet, #1)Being a long time fan of this author I knew a little of what I should expect when I picked up Vision in White.  After reading the first chapter I knew I was in for a whole different kind of story.  Yes this has your typical romance that, if you have read Roberts before, I have come to expect, but the main difference is the relationship between the women.  See this series is focused on 4 women who run a wedding service out of their home and their lives are very intertwined with not only each other but with their clients.  I love weddings which I know isn't surprising since I am a girl (HA!) so you give me 4 friends, a wedding business, wonderful men, and a strong bond by all and I AM SOLD!  I just can't describe the wonderful feelings I had while reading this.  I teared up many many times and I just feel that the author nailed this series.  There is not one thing that I would have wanted changed in any of the books.

Happy Ever After (Bride Quartet, #4)Savor the Moment (Bride Quartet, #3)The first book in this series is my all time favorite.  Mac and Carter are beyond cute and if you are a book nerd then you have to meet Carter.  Imagine this ladies tweed jacket, glasses, knows his books, and blushes  plus he is a cutie!  Sounds perfect right?    Well this is just the starting couple, you will also meet Parker, Emma, and Laurel and well I won't spoil who they end up with but you can count on very steamy moments with some hotties!  Plus again the relationship between these four women is beyond amazing and after reading this series I am seriously considering opening up my own wedding business just so I can have these kinds of friends =D

I think I have talked your ear (eyes) off so let me just leave you with the rafflecopter form that I know you will all fill out because I know you want to win all FOUR books!  Good luck!! Oh and this is open INTERNATIONALLY to anywhere The Book Depository ships!

  5. I have actually only read one of Roberts' books, Carolina Moon. It was recommended and lent to me by a former co-worker and I LOVED it(the TV movie was ok too). I have many of Roberts' books on my TBR list, including her "in death" series and her newest Boonsboro(sp?) Inn series.

    Thanks for the great giveaway :) Really hoping I win. This series sounds so good and the covers are beautiful.
