RT13 Recap and Mega 45 Books Giveaway!


Winners: Box 1: Kyla, Box 2: Shadow, Box 3: Joanne B, Box 4: Tammy YS

Please email me your mailing addresses with giveaway box #

As most of you might already know from all the teasers posted on HJ’s Facebook page I attended the RT Booklovers Convention in Kansas City at the beginning of May, It was my first RT convention and it was a blast. I would highly recommend any book lover to attend RT at-least once, it is an experience to behold.

What made RT fun besides all the book giveaways was meeting some AWESOME authors ( Catherine Bybee, Julie James, Roxanne St. Claire, Megan Mulry, Jill Shalvis, Jane Graves, Jennifer Probst,  Ruthie Knox, Nicole Flockton, Maisey Yates, Lynn Harris, HP Mallory, Victoria Dahl to name a few)  and bloggers (@Inlovewromance @CaribbeanAccent @KristyWyatt @JoyfullyReviewd @Mimmibklvr @The_Book_Tart @drmgrl99dawn @bookfan747)

Here’s a photo from Ellora’s Cave 70’s Disco Party: We got talked into this photo shoot by Sasha (@CaribbeanAccent) This was asWild as it got at RT.  Here with @NicoleFlockton, @Inlovewromance @KristyWyatt and @CaribbeanAccent –  “They” say a photo speaks a thousand words….

what happens at #RT13 stays at RT or so we thought 😉


Fan Girl Moment: Yes I did have a total fan girl moment, ok … maybe two where I got all giddy and blushed liked crazy and I wasn’t even drunk!;) One when I met Jude Deveraux at the signing and the other was when I met Tracey Graves Gravis (author of On the Island) for drinks.

 Here are my two most prized possessions from RT13


Here’s an RT Tip: the bar is the best place to run into your fav authors. Make what of it you will 😉

Avon Books threw the most amazing fan party, I probably came out of there with 15 books if not more, kid you not  they sure know how to throw a PARTY for their readers. FAN-tastic Day was another fab event where there were books galore, though by this point I had to restrain myself as the reality of getting all these books home was weighing heavily on my shoulders…Well, I know better for next year (less clothes = more room for books) + I am packing an extra bag(s) 😉

While I was at the Avon Red Slipper Lounge and FAN-tastic Day I did keep you gals in mind and packed in a few extra books such that I could share it with you gals. I have 4 boxes of books to giveaway + Swag.

  1. hmgarrison

    All the boxes look awesome! I pick number 3. One of my favorite authors is Nora Roberts! I would love to meet her one day! I love her books because all of her characters are real and I love all the worlds she creates! 😀 SnowWhite258(at)hotmail(dot)com

  2. Kim

    I love your blog!! I’m enjoying hearing about some of the highlights of the RT convention since I couldn’t attend. I’d love to win any of those boxes! Thanks for offering such a selection of books! I would love to meet Lisa Renee Jones and Sylvia Day in person! I love their writing styles and characters. I’m counting down the days until Being Me and Entwined with You are finally available 😉

  3. Melody May

    Any box would be awesome. Sara you’re super awesome! The author I would love to meet would be Samantha Grace. She’s super awesome! However, I would love to meet others to. Like Ava Stone, Sabrina Jeffries, Karen Hawkins, Alexandra Hawkins, and so many more. Pretty much most the authors I follow on twitter.

  4. amy o'neal

    omgoodness….i agree any box would be wonderful but i love Robyn Carr…but all the other ones would be new to me authors that i’ve never read……and of course if you pick me….i’d love you for the rest of my life 🙂

  5. kimberly hoefs

    like box 3 , but take anyone..like nora roberts and danielle steele..i love what you doing..thanks so much

  6. Timitra

    Box 4 is calling my name lol…I’d love to meet Karen Marie Moning because writes really great alpha males!

  7. Kellie

    I like the looked of all the boxes but is probably have to say box 1 or 4 because I don’t own any of those yet! I think Eloisa James would be one the authors I’d like to meet I feel like you could sit down and have a cup of coffee with her and have as fun quirky convo! I love almost all historical romance novels. But especially enjoy the ones that provide an escape into that world, I think Eloise does a good job of that l.

  8. Larrolynn

    I would love any of the boxes – 1, 2, 3, or 4 as they each contain an author I love and new authors I might enjoy getting to know about! I love historical and/or paranormal romance, especially with a bit of mystery involved. I’ve already met the author I most wanted to meet – Sir Terry Pratchett – and loved his sense of humor because he was exactly how I imagined him to be from his writing style. My next choice would be Heather Graham or Christina Dodd because they write books into which I love to escape… and they do a good job of making the more intimate scenes steamy but not uncomfortably so.
    Please add me to the email list!

  9. Evelyn

    All the boxes are awesome and thank you for giving away all your goodies. My favorite author that I would love to meet in person is Katie Reus. I love her books. I love the way she writes strong women in her books. Box number 3.

  10. Kim B

    I would be happy with any and all of the sets! I love the Nine Naughty Novelist. My dream team, however, would be Erin Nicholas, Shelli Stevens, and Mari Carr. Love ’em!

  11. Lisa H

    I have met Jill Shalvis. Though there was a misunderstanding that I still feel like I should explain to her because I feel like she thought I lied to her but I didn’t. But everyone tells me to let it go and I am sure she remembers nothing except looking for the closest escape since I was the squealing silly fan girl. At the same time I met Julia Quinn. Which only escalated my terrifying fan girl behavior. I would love to meet Lori Foster or Shana Galen. But I suspect they are far too cool for me. Eloisa James! She would be a dream meet. I suspect she Is very cool. But also, very tolerant. haha Heather Snow is another author that I would love to meet. She writes terrific fascinating stories and characters.

    • Lisa H

      Forgot to say I would like any of the boxes, they all have some great stuff, but I will throw my cap in for box #1 please.

  12. barbed1951

    I’d love to win Box #1 (or Box #3). I’ve met quite a few of my favorite authors, but one I haven’t met and would love to is Jude Deveraux, that would be awesome because I’ve been a fan for many years.

  13. Amanda

    Winning any box would be incredible. They all have a great selection of books that look awesome! An author that I absolutely love and would love to meet is J.R. Ward, because I think her books are sensational, and have elements of everything I love: romance, action, suspense, drama, steaminess, etc.


    i love you sara! how’s that?! i have so many favorite authors i love to read, hard to choose. susan elizabeth phillips is at the top, because she can make me laugh and cry in the same book. nora roberts/j.d. robb is also a favorite. the death series goes without saying. who doesn’t love roarke and eve. black dagger brotherhood series by j. r. ward, sexy vamps! jill shalvis is a new favorite. absolutely love her humor.

    all the boxes look great. pick for me. 🙂

    thank you for sharing, sara! 🙂

  15. Sandie W

    I would love to meet Fern Michaels. (among many others) There are so many fantastic Authors that it’s really hard to just choose one! I would love to have any of the boxes you are offering, but seems you asked to pick one, I’d have to say #1.

  16. Alicia Jespersen

    I follow by email! I’d love to win box 4!!!!! Jeaniene Frost!!!!!!! Cowboys!!!!!!!!!
    The reason I love Harlequin Junkie is because it has a diverse selection in reviews and the friendly community!

    The one author I’d love to meet is Keri Arthur!!! She is one of my soulmate authors!!! There isn’t a single book by her that I don’t completely adore!!! It would be just so amazing to meet her!!! She is the one author I LOVE!!!!!! Not to mention she seems like a very genuinely nice person!

  17. chrisbails

    I love this blog so very much. It is one of the best. Love all the book reviews. All the boxes look awesome. I would love box 3 or 4. Thanks again, you are the best.

  18. Caryn McKAy

    While they all look great, personally I like Box number 1 the best.
    I met Nora Robert’s at a signing of the villa, and she was fantastic. I have almost everything by her. I would love to meet Sabrina Jeffries, Mary Balogh, Eloisa James and Heather Graham.

  19. LeKeisha Thomas

    Wow! It’s so hard to choose! If I were to win, I’d pick box 3. My favorite author right now is John Green. I also love Cass Clare. I’d really like to meet John one day. That will also be the day I die and go to heaven. Well at least I’ll die happy!! Awesome Giveaway! *Squeeeeeee!*

  20. Linda

    I’m an international reader & 2 books would be awesome. I’d love the Nina Rowan for one! My fav genre is historical romance & there ares so many great authors who write in that genre. Probably Courtney Milan? Her books are amazing. There’s an added depth & meaning in her books and characters & her writing is awesome.

  21. Nancy Crocker

    I would be happy to have any of them, but if I must choose then it would #4 because it looks like it has a number of cowboys stories. If I could meet any author that I currently read and is a living author it would probably be Heather Rainier, but there are so very many. If it was any author current or pass it would be John Steinbeck.

  22. binichen90

    I would love to win box #4. But I wouldn’t mind if I would get #3 because this box is really cool, too.
    If I could meet any author then it would be Katie MacAlister. I totally love her books and she is such a sweet and generous person. Unfortunately she doesn’t like to travel for so far and I’m living in Germany, so there is no chance to get to see her. :/ But I’m joining her community. =)

    I wouldn’t mind to pay the mailiing cost for the box if I would win. =) (hopefully it’s not that high lol)

  23. Ashlea Rhodes

    Has to be box 4 love love love. And I would love to meet Catherine Bybee or Maggie Shayne or even Gena Showalter they are all great writers and seem like fantastic lady’s. please come Down Under lady’s and to Melbourne 🙂

  24. karen Pietrusinski

    I would take any of the four boxes. You are awesome. The author I would love to meet is Debbie Maccomber. I love her books. They are well written and hard to put down. Tho I am sure I can come up with several other authors that are my favs and I’d love to meet as well. Thank you for another awesome giveaway.

  25. belindaegreen

    I’m more partial to box 2 but anyone will be fine.

    The authors I would love to meet are Brenda Jackson and Laurann Dohner. To have lunch with them and pick their brains would be awesome. Maybe one of these days.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  26. Mary Preston

    Truly incredible thank you!!

    I’m INTERNATIONAL, so I’d have *winners choice*. Spoiled for choice that’s for sure.

    I have too many favourite authors but, I’d love to meet Neil Gaiman. I wonder if he is as quirky in real life as I imagine? His books certainly are.

  27. Aly P

    All the boxes look amazing, I’d wish 1,4,2,3 i this order 😀 The pictures… just wow =))))

  28. Lori P

    Can I choose them all? Okay I’ll pick just one…so I’m thinking box 2 looks great. I’ve met Brenda Novak and she was awesome. I love Nora Roberts. I think it would be awesome to meet her. There are so many so it makes it difficult to just pick one. Thank you for the giveaway 🙂

  31. Rebe

    I’d love box #2! There are soooo many authors I’d love to meet! I think if I only could choose one, I’d have to go with Nora Roberts. She’s written so many books! Truly amazing.

  32. orchid7

    Sounds like it was a fun trip! 🙂 I’d live to win box 4. And I’d love to meet Ilona Andrews. It would be interesting to hear how the husband and wife team that make up that pen name collaborate.

  33. kimmyl

    I’d love Box 4. I love reading and there are too many authors I would love to meet, but if I had to narrow it down to one. I would say Jane Porter. I love her books and she’s so fascinating.

  34. Jan

    Love Jill Shalvis, Sylvia Day and Robyn Carr. Not happy there is no Kristan Higgins.

  35. Kim Cornwell

    Which one do I choose, which one do I choose? So many great books and a hard decision! I would love # 3, but would be happy with any of them! Thanks for the great giveaway! I wish I could have been there!

  38. Katherine Martell

    I would love to win any of them so…1, 2, 3, or 4, but I do believe 1 is my favorite. I would love to meet Beatrice Small. She was the first romance novel I read, I was 16, it was Skye O’Malley. I’ve been in love with romance ever since.

  39. Leanna Hiner

    I would love box 3 or 4. I would love to meet Julie James. I just love her books and wait all year for her book. I love that her books have lawyers in them as I am a paralegal so I understand that world.

  40. Roberta Peden

    I would love any and all of them, # 3 is my favorite, I would love to meet Jill Shalvis, she seems like such a likable person and I love her books.

  41. kp

  42. alisha woods

    any box would be great, but if I have to pick one I guess I would pick box 4. 🙂 I am really good with any box. Thanks for the great give away

  43. Lily B

    oh my gosh awesome giveaway thank you! Hard to choose. Maybe box 1,2 or 3 :X. My favorite authors…hum… The first one comes to mind is Darynda Jones. I absolutely love her Charley Davidson series and Reyes <3 hot dark and dangerous, probably my favorite book boyfriend eheh. I also recently discovered that I love Elizabeth Hoyt writing and Anne Barton and soo many more undiscovered authors that I know others really love that I hope I can see for myself 😀

  44. Pennie M

    Oh, look at all the pretty books! You did good!!!!! Box 2 has my name on it, although any would be great and those books I have already read or have would be shared. My daughter loves my care packages because she knows I always put a book or 2 in and as a broke college student pleasure reading material is not in her budget 🙂 and she relies on mom for that.

  45. Sharlene Wegner

    You know I am your biggest fan! LOL! Box 1 or 4 would be great! I would have a hard time picking what author I would like to meet, there are so many! I went to the book signing in NYC 2 years ago & met a bunch of authors (added about 50 books to TBR!). Ones that stand out as being really friendly were Kieran Kramer, Robyn Carr, Kristan Higgins, Susan Elizabeth Phillips & Emily March. I would love to meet Laura Florand & Sophie Barnes.

  46. CateS

    Oh myyyyy! You are so awesome to share!!! I’d love Box #2!! Well, actually, I’d take any of them..!!

  47. Rita Wray

    I would like Box 1. There are many authors I’d like to meet but if I had to choose one it would be Danielle Steel. I have been a fan of hers for many years.
    I am also a fan of yours. LOL

  48. Susan

    I would be happy with any of the boxes! I envy your trip to the convention. I will definitely have to put attending one on my bucket list 🙂

  49. Monica Tillery (@monicatillery)

    The boxes all look wonderful, but #1 is my favorite. Jane Porter is my favorite author, and I was actually fortunate enough to meet her late last year. She such a kind, generous, positive person–an inspiration to me. If I could be so lucky as to choose another author, it might be Jill Shalvis. I follow her on FB and get the idea that we would get along just fine, LOL. Great giveaway, and love the pics from RT!!

  50. Free Romance iBooks

    OMG I LOVE YOU SARA/Harlequin Junkie 😉 But seriously, a favorite author I have many, but one of my absolute favs is R.L. Mathewson cause her stories are always fun and can change my bad mood to a great one in just a few chapters of any book. I guess box 3 cause it had a signed book and those are my favs but they all look good. Thank you so much for another amazing giveaway.

  51. Tawnya Bentley

    I do really love you and your blogs, and giveaways, hey I have to be honest here right?
    If I could meet any author, I would love to meet Susan Mallery. Her books always have me laughing, and sometimes even crying at some point. She is able to bring real life subjects into her books that I’ve never seen other author’s do. I love that!!!! And although obviously I’ve never met her, her website page, Facebook post, and tweets, make her seem like an everyday person.

    If I could pick between the boxes my first choice would be box 2, than box 4, 3, 1.
    Thank you for this chance and for being so great!

  52. Brenda M.

    I would LOVE any of the boxes, but box 4 is my personal favorite since it contains so many cowboys!
    I love The Nine Naughty Novelists, Erin Nicholas, Kelly Jamieson, and I would be so honored to meet any of them. I am also a huge fan girl for Lorelei James. I honestly think I would be start struck to meet her.

  53. Melinda Dozier (@MelindaDozier)

    OMG! I’m having heart palpatations imagining meeting your fangirl list! I would love any stack of books but especially anything with Jill Shalvis! You know I’ll be at RT next year! New Orleans here I come!

  54. Krysten M

    Hmmm, picking a favorite is just so tough.. I’d love to meet Jill Shalvis, I absolutely love her books! My choices are box #1, then 3, then 2.. Thanks!

  55. Tammy Stoneman Yenalavitch

    Sara – How much do I like you? Very much!!!! You have the best giveaways and you are so generous and sweet. I want Box 4 – so badly. It has all the Harts of the Rodeo books I am missing, I would be happy with any of these boxes, but I really want box 4,

    My favorite author is Charles Sheehan-Miles.
    I really wanted to meet with him in person And asked him to sign my books.
    I love his books because of what he wrote has always seemed real and close, like we’re not reading a fictional story, but a story of someone’s life.
    He has made me cry – not just once, but more than once – because of the story he wrote, there are times when I really feel “hate” him so much, but then I admit, he’s a genius.
    That is the reason why I love him so much.

    Thank you for the giveaway…

    I’d love to win boxes 2 or 3! An author I would love to meet would be Jeaniene Frost because I absolutely LOVE Cat and Bones and I would love to pick her brain to see what will be happening in Up From the Grave! Thanks for the chance to win!

The author I would like to meet is Susan Mallery. Her Fool’s Gold series makes me want to go there for real (yes, I know it’s just make believe) because everyone in the town is so supportive and the characters show such strength in facing their problems.
