NOTES about the hops:
Anyone with a romance book themed blog/site may enter. 
- Romance doesn't have to be the only genre featured on your site but MUST be one of them.
Perfect for authors with a new romance release, but prize MUST be available to send at end of giveaway. If your book isn't available by then, please use a book on your backlist that is.
- Erotica blogs and authors are welcome to join, HOWEVER, please keep your post and images tasteful. If it's Facebook and Amazon approved, it's approved for this hop.
- There is no steam requirement for joining the hop. Sweet romance blogs/authors are encouraged to participate but know that some stops will include spicier content. Romance comes in all flavors!
- Each hop has a theme or topic. Feel free to discuss this topic in your post. Prizes do not have to fit the theme (unless you want to!), only the romance genre in general.

- Prize must be romance themed and preferably book related.
- Gently read books may be used, but be sure to mention this in your post.
- Gift cards are allowed.
- Swag packs are allowed.
- Naughty (new & unused) toys/gifts are allowed, but please keep the images appropriate. We don't need to see anyone using the toys. We have an imagination of our own.
- If giving away a naughty gift, you MUST put (18+) at the end of your blog name on the list. People who are not interested can skip your stop without issue.
- Blogs/sites are responsible for their giveaway and sending out their prizes in a timely manner.
- Multiple prizes are allowed, but be sure to clearly state how many winners you will be picking. (1 winner for 3 prizes -or- 3 different winners, etc.)
You decide how to hold your giveaway. I recommend using Rafflecopter (it's free!), but entries via comments is acceptable if you have a way to contact the winner.
- Be sure to mention if your prize is international or limited to a certain country. We don't want anyone to enter a giveaway they can't win.

- Links must be live at 12 am EST -AND- easily found on your blog.
- You MUST include the blog hop banner (above) in your post.
- You MUST include the Inlinkz list in your post. How else will people know where to go after your stop? You can get the list code below.
- If possible, please send me your post permalink at least 24 hours prior to hop start time.
- If giveaway post is not on the first page of your blog/site on start day, there MUST be a link to it on your main page, possibly on the sidebar.
- If I can't find the post, or a link to the post on your main page after giveaway starts, I will delete it from the list. If I can't find it, no one else can either.
- Giveaways cannot end prior to midnight on last day. Giveaways that end early will be removed from the list.
