Lucky in Love Blog Hop for St Patrick’s Day #LuckHop


It is that time of year when we start to look forward to warmer weather and begin the process of spring-cleaning. This seems to be a spiritual ritual, even though many people probably won’t see it that way. We feel the urge to clear out the backlog of jobs, chores and clutter that has accumulated during the cold, dark winter months, and we brighten up in preparation for spring and summer.

March also sees the celebration of St Patrick’s Day in Ireland and for those natives around the world. St Patrick represents luck, and today we mark the occasion by bringing you the Lucky in Love Blog Hop. Check out some anecdotes from romance authors, share the love, and tell us about your experiences of being Lucky in Love.



I for one am very lucky at the moment. I am happily married to my soul mate, and we have been together since we were 19 years old. I won’t lie; it hasn’t been an easy ride. We are only in our early 30s and we still have a lot more to learn about each other and what it means to be married with young children. But I am happy to have a wonderful husband, a beautiful daughter, and another baby on the way (estimated for a July birth!). Oh, and did I mention I am a quarter Irish? So this day is doubly special for my family.

2013 is proving to be a wonderful year for me already as I celebrate my second pregnancy and the release of my third novel Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel). Since I am so happy and excited, I am going to offer a free signed paperback copy of my first novel Love Hurts (A RedcliffeNovel). If you are not successful in the competition, check out the big giveaway over at Carrie Ann’s Blog for Lucky in Love, or if you visit Wattpad you can read Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel) free for a limited time only.


All you need to do is comment on this post and check out some of the other blogs in the Lucky in Love Blog Hop. When the event is over I will select a winner based on the content of your replies, and I will post the book out to you, wherever you are in the world. Of course, you will need to email me your address separately, but we can take care of that later…Happy St Patrick’s Day!

  2. It's a good thing I don't believe in luck, or I'd be pretty miffed right now! I have no luck with love, and less with money. I am wracked with illness. I was booted out of my PhD program. i had a heart attack. i totaled my car. I have to eat a radioactive isotope-thingy in a few weeks. I have no job or insurance. (Insert violins here...)

    But at last, I've had a chance to use "wracked" in a sentence. And I have astonishing success with thrift stores, landlords, and blog hops. Plus, the radioactive thing is kinda cool! And I enjoy spring weather, and it's finally here. Although I also love winter weather. And fall. And I love blog hops. (Insert disco music here!)

  7. *waves* Hi Catherine. :) Congrats on baby #2, your daughter, and a long happy marriage.
    I too married my soul mate at 19. Lots of people thought we were too young, and all but my MIL said we wouldn't last six months. :P
    It isn't easy, but we make it work. :)

  10. Thanks for the great giveaway and congrats on the new baby on the way! I have not been lucky in love but hopefully someday. I do feel lucky to have 3 great kids that resulted from my not so great marriage.

    1. Thank you and thanks for commenting. Yes, I never understood the true wonder of having children until I had one. So frustrating but so rewarding, don't you think?

  17. I don't know that luck has any bearing on having a successful relationship. It's a whole lot of work. I married my high school sweetheart right out of high school. We have been married for 17 years.

  23. What a great giveaway hop! I have yet to be lucky in love but I'm working on it. My favorite love book is "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser is amazing and beautiful. I enjoy St. Patty's Day and this year I'm spending it with my best friend. We're going to two Irish Pubs and also some dance clubs. I am also wearing green and am not a fan of getting pinched. I'm not Irish either, but many people think I am because my hair is red, my eyes green and my name is Meghan, but I'm not at all. I won't be telling anybody that, however… let them believe I'm Irish.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
