Happy Endings Giveaway Hop!

Happy endings romance giveaway hop


Tell your happy ending story!

The Happy Endings Giveaway Hop was organized by Reading Romances!
Hello and welcome to the Happy Endings giveaway hop! This is my first time hosting a Giveaway Hop and I look forward to having fun.

My Happy Ending:

I was lucky. Back in *cough* the early 80's, I met my future husband in high school. Michael was a year older but we were both in the same computer class together. He was a good friend, nothing more. As a matter of fact, he was dating the sister of another friend of ours. It wasn't until he'd graduated and went off to basic training that we actually got together. Our teacher had the class write to Michael as an assignment while he was at Fort Benning, GA. I was the only one he wrote back to, asking for my senior photo and my phone number. Imagine  my surprise. Since he was the epidome of my heroes, strong, handsome and funny, I wrote back and included my photo and phone number. We went on our first date the very day he got back, and we've been together ever since.
Michael is still in the National Guard. He's full time now, and this May we'll be married 27 years. It doesn't feel nearly that long. We may not look the same as we did in high school, but we sure do feel the same about each other.  Right now, his unit was activated to pull inaguration duty down in D.C. I still miss him when he goes away, but those homecomings are stuff to write about!
Oh, wait...hehe...I do!


My Contest is international:

For me, happy endings are a must when I read or write. I love the content feeling that follows when I close the book. If the characters are happy and satisfied, then so am I. How about you? What do you like about Happy Endings?
 Leave a comment and I'll draw 2 random names to win their choice of either of my latest releases:
Prize 1:  US and INT - PDF of CAPTIVE HERO (Time-shift Heroes Series-Book One)
Prize 2: US and INT - PDF of COWBOY-SEXY
Amazon              B & N
 Don't forget to hop over to these other blogs for more Happy Endings and prizes! Good luck!
