Drinking and Winning Giveaway Hop!!!

drinking and winning giveaway hop


The Pre- Party Giveaway Hop is being hosted by Reading Romances as a preparation for their blogiversary party on March 29!


Me drinking a Guinness.
To Love An Irishman is the kind of book you'd read while sipping a nice cold (or warm) pint of lager or ale. Whether you prefer the warm taste of Guinness or the sweet taste of Yuengling. No matter what you choose, you'd be in a most relaxing state after at least two, three, or four!


Here is an excerpt of the book:
Aveline couldn’t tear her eyes away. The man was gorgeous—and most unfriendly...
One of the men stood out from the others. His clothing was obviously expensive, despite its poor condition. Aveline stood quietly and observed him through the crack of the door, wondering who he was.
He discarded his brown swallowtail coat and threw it over the stall wall, leaving only a green cotton waistcoat and a worn, white linen shirt covering his upper torso. The shirt hung open, exposing the man’s broad chest, dusted with dark hair. The waistcoat, also unbuttoned, trailed down toward brown corduroy trousers that fit snugly around his muscled thighs. His clothes were unmarked by patches, though stains from dirt surrounded both knees. He wore brown stockings with black leather brogues.
She wanted to stand in the doorway and watch him sing for the rest of the day. His voice was wonderful and its warm tone washed through her. But she knew the longer she remained the more likely it was she’d be seen. As an eavesdropper, she had seen and learned more information than her father would ever have allowed. That is why she loved doing it.
The time grew late and she decided to leave. She’d introduce herself when she wouldn’t be an interruption. Her success on the farm revolved around their good opinion of her. Easing away, she stumbled and grabbed a hold of the door, causing it to creak. Suddenly, the Irishman looked directly at her. The grin she’d seen on his face just moments before turned to a scowl.
She did not stick around to see what he did next, but ran in the direction of the farmhouse. He caught her arm in three quick strides, grabbed her wrist, and spoke to her in Gaelic as she turned around, gasping for breath. His language was beautiful. She just wished she understood what he was trying to say.

I love me a Guinness or a Smithwick's! I first tied Smithwick's while I was in Dublin and it quickly became one of my favorite beers. For special occasions I also love a good Glenfiddich or Jameson's!

An Irishman and Gaelic speaking...ok...where do we sign up? Love your site and sounds like Aveline is in for an adventure! When I drink, I like a dry red wine preferably an import...but have to say the BC wineries are fine!

Have fun :)

Sounds like a great read.
I love Sparks.

You know, I've never tried a Smithwick's. I will have to do so when I'm in Dublin. I used to love the way Jameson tasted so much I'd just drink it on the rocks! Thanks for sharing. :)

Thanks for being on the hop! My drink of choice varies with my moods. I usually like to drink a Woodchuck Pear Cider on draft. I am also very fortunate that I live very close to Schlafly brewing and they may seasonal Ciders. I love them all.

Nice excerpt, Diva. I don't know that this is my fav drink, but I usually would go for a wine - red or white depends on whether I'm eating or not and what I'm eating. I also like Amarula (a cream liqueur - yes, it's better than Bailey's ~sorry, guys~)

I like Sea Breezes and Moscato wine.

Thanks,

Don't worry about it. Although, I will say Lauren, Bailey's is worth having in your coffee!!!

My fav cocktail is Ceasar or Bloody Ceasar as it also known. Very similar to Bloody Mary but different with Mott's Clamato instead of tomato juice and iwth the rim and stalk of celery and a few drops of Tabasco sauce. If you find yourself in Canada, order one.

Tina R said...

I don't drink, but years ago I did drink Amaretto & 7-up once in a while.

Wine. Sangrias made with red wine, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries are divine. I'm really curious to try Pumpkin Wine by Three Lakes Winery. @ What Mel B. said: I've never had Woodchuck Pear, but Woodchuck Amber is delish. It's a hard apple cider.

L. R. Wright said...

A nice Riesling would do me good! Or a Margarita on the rocks, salt on the rim with a bit of grand marnier is divine.

I've recently began my weight loss journey and only drink water, some juice at times so I don't usually drink alcohol. However, when I used to eat out at Olive Garden, I loved their Chocolate Almond Amore!!
