I'm also confused. 'Cause, I'm not sure what bothers me so much about the kissing in Vanish. I haven't been able to pinpoint it, but whatever-it-is reminds me of "romance" for the sake of "romance" which I avoid. Which doesn't make sense b/c my favorite scenes in my favorite books are focused romance and Soulless has a lot and it's very steamy and I thoroughly loved every moment without any of the animosity I feel towards Vanish. So, I have no idea what my problem is.
Thank you everyone for your lovely answers!!!
Journals!!! LOVE 'EM!! That is the best way to remember what it felt like to fall in love and then you still have it years later.

For the Kick-Butt Giveaway, I made so much sense, I nearly drove myself crazy. I have spurts, if you must know, where I turn into a business person and make great logical decisions and appear shockingly efficient. Luckily for me, it passes quickly and I'm back to scatterbrained arteest of "where did I take off my shoes?"
Unfortunately, both sides of me like to make piles... and so I have multiple giveaways to announce. This one, at least, is fairly easy. (Sorry 'bout that! [The piles, not announcing winners, finally.])
I loved, LOVED your comments on Advertising. So many of 'em are insta-post material, so I shall pull them out randomly in the future (when business-sense hits me), quoting readers and hopefully remembering to let you know when I quote you in case you don't subscribe, yet. (Why you wouldn't is beyond me... unless I'm only entertaining myself around here. *pause* I'm not going to think about that too hard.)
The winner of the Kick-Butt Giveaway is...
You have won a book with a Kick-Butt Character
of your choice!!
Both of these long-time reader-winners managed to win without leaving me comments with which I could ::razz:: them. Count yer blessin's 'cause I do believe I checked the "required" box for commenting on my current, totally HOT giveaway - have you seen my fav charity, yet?! :-D (it was so easy to do!! Little box!!)
The comments for the Charity Hop are amazing... our world goes 'round by Giving, I think.
The "Spring Cleaning" Giveaway was fun to set up, but not as easy to find winners, even using the handy-dandy random number generator. At least I'm not printing out everyone's names on slips of paper anymore and pulling them out of a box. Now that was tedious... anyone remember my earliest giveaways?
For the Spring Cleaning Giveaway, I listed 8 books for 8 winners. Thankfully I remembered to request email address!!! Unfortunately, I did not think to request a name to call you when you win!! *ahem*
Most of the winners left me a "way to follow you back", so I can list something. A few...well, I hope you don't mind me making up a name for you just this once.
The winner of....

I will be giving away more books soon with author-interviews, books I have not read, even books I don't know so much about, but books I would like to promote 'cause I can't read as much as I'd like and I'm tired of waiting for myself to get around to 'em.
