Winter is Coming

In case you missed it last year (my how the time flies!) I'm seriously addicted to Game of Thrones. Not just because of my love for Sean Bean but also because I adore any fantasy movie/series like this. LOTR? So there...own it on DVD in the 4 disc extended version.

Such is my level of geekdom.

But is it romantic? There's romance. There's even love, deep abiding love. And there's loads of sex. But it could never be mistaken for a romance. Never. It's well suited for the fantasy category! But what draws so may of us into it? I read the hash tags on Twitter, and since those I follow are pretty much romance readers & writers, I know it's not only my science fiction love.

Great writing? Check
Great characters? Check
Great costumes? Check
Great casting? Check

But it's so much more than that. I root for even the characters I don't love. Because they're all so well-rounded and real that it's hard not to.

So in honor of tonight's premier of season 2 of Game of Thrones, here's the contest. Tell me why you love epic fantasies like this. Or why you don't. Or why you gave it a try and would rather hear nails on a chalkboard than watch another episode. Or why the books are better than the adaptation (aren't they always?)...Or even why you love Sean Bean! I'm pretty much open to anything.

Now, what do you get for this? Free copy of The Masque: A Hellfire Club Erotique, free copy of Covet: A Regency Ménage Tale, one $10 Amazon gift card.

Ready? Go!


  1. Whats not to love? :)

  2. Everything!!! The characters are amazing. The men are so hot!! The sex is great!! I must admit I even like the intro. The musical score is great!. Haven't read the books, but since the episodes are so good, I would have to think that the books are even better!

  3. Books are better because you get to imagine everything. And nothing is as good as your imagination.

  4. How can you not love him...I've seen bits of the show on the net since I don't have the channel that it runs on..Saving up for the first season DVD.

  5. Well, like Regina said, what's NOT to love??
    I was SO upset last season when 2 of my favorites were gone. I LOVED looking at Drahgo (don't know if I spelled it correctly)! Also, I like to look at John Snow! :D I can't wait to see him in action. It is just all around amazing. Poor Sansa & Arya.
    :( I want to say soooo much, but don't want to ruin it for anyone else.
    I bought the books, but I won't read them until after the series is over because the differences drive me crazy and I can't enjoy either.
    Well, off to watch the Premiere!!!
    Oh, and thank you for the chance to win!

  6. I haven't read the books, it's the same issue I had with Lord of the many characters to keep up with! But I'm absolutely adoring the show.
