  11. Great cover and I'm sure the content is also great. Sweet romance reminds me of the thrill of young love or first love but it promises that this love will deepen and endure. I also commented on FB. Thanks for your giveaway!

  13. There is something so timeless and sweet about it. I can enjoy the blush of new love without all the sexual tension in the way. And my daughter who can read now can look at my kindle and I don't have to be worried. shaunarussellcarrier@gmail.com

    1. Your thoughts could be my own! When I began writing, I chose "Sweet" for many reasons, including the confidence in handing any of my books or drafts to my (then) young daughters and inviting them to read my work. Thanks for entering, Shauna!

  18. Hi Kristin.
    What I love about sweet romances is that they rely on a story about lasting love rather than lust that burns out and leaves you empty. Sweet romance includes things like respect and loyalty through hardship that are both necessary to staying married. They teach us to expect more from a partner, and that more is expected of us, than just a few heady moments of passion.

    1. What a beautiful realization, Frances. You're so right. =) Respect, loyalty, patience, permanence. That's my idea of love, too.
      Thanks so much for contributing (and entering the drawing!).
      Best,
      Kristin

  19. Dear Kristin,
    What I love most about Sweet Romance is precisely that: the fact that is Sweet. To me, it's truly a gift to be able to enjoy a story knowing that it's clean (as in, no "under the covers" scenes) but that, at the same time, it has all the beautiful aspects of Romance. Of course, the getting to know great but still real, down-to-earth, characters that will develop a lasting relationship (not without first having faced their own set of trials as a couple), along with following them through their own personal journeys (their struggles as well as their joys), all while sharing and supporting the positive values that they bring to the table, as well as rooting for their HEA, are all lovable aspects (that I’m definitely not complaining about ;) ) of a genre that quickly became my favorite.
