18 and Over Book Blogger Tag Along and Follow Friday

This Friday, I'm celebrating the fact that I've gotten an offer to publish my book.  Siren-Bookstrand, the first publisher I queried, contacted me and wants to publish Stolen Destiny!  I'm so thrilled I can barely keep my feet on the ground!  So today is definitely a day I want to share with others.  This week, in addition to the great 18 and Over Book Blogger Tag Along, I'm doing Follow Friday.  I liked what I saw at both the blogs hosting these, so I figured I'd join in. 


The tag along is hosted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance, and it's a good chance for those who read adult books to find others like them. 

The question for this week is:  What's your favorite genre?

Paranormal romance, of course!  :)  And I can tell you that it's as much fun writing them as reading them. 



And Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee at her blog, Parajunkee's View.

The question for Follow Friday is:  What is your favorite romance hero stereotype? Do you like the strong, silent type or the brute, macho man?

I prefer strong men, mainly mad, bad, and dangerous to know.  That's why paranormal heroes are often my favorite.  There's nothing wrong with the contemporary or historical heroes, but they aren't usually the kind of bad boys I like best.

Hi, hopping by to say hello and wish you a great day and weekend.

My favorite genre is paranormal Erotic Romance and the type of men I love is strong and tender at the same time. A man who treats a woman as an equal.

Congratulations on your offer!! That's wonderful news. Best wishes!

Love your favorite romance hero! Mine would be a bit beastly and domineering, but loving, witty and smart too.

Thank you for stopping by The Forbidden Bookshelf!
