What does love smell like to you? Red roses? Fancy perfume? A soft, summery day?

Do you know what smells like love to a man? Cinnamon rolls!

No wonder Cinnabon is in just about every mall--it's the only way to get the fellows to shop with their wives! But, really the key ingredient of 'romance' when it comes to smell is cinnamon

Cinnamon is apparently the most mentioned smell that makes males think of love and romance. Honest! Google it. Heck, even the Bible mentions it...

"I have sprinkled my bed With myrrh, aloes and cinnamonCome, 

let us drink our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves 

with caresses." Proverbs 7:17-18.

So yeah. Treat your man with something cinnamony this 

Valentine's Day and he'll probably love it! But for you, dear blog 

reader, leave a comment with your email to be entered for a chance 

to win one of three Kindle copies of my latest romance novel,

Book One Nashville Dreamers *Sweet Home Alabama meets A Walk in the Clouds* 

Holly Mae Raleigh has finally arrived, landing a plum VP position in Music City. But when her Aunt Della calls in a favor sending Holly back to her hometown, she finds herself ankle deep in a chicken pen while juggling the demands of her job and an old flame. As her carefully constructed facade comes tumbling down, she meets a handsome vineyard owner who also studies the spiritual side of the vines. Can he convince Holly he sees her as God does, and help her rediscover her faith?

Also, one winner will receive a $10 Amazon gift card to go with the book, so you can maybe stock up on cinnamon in case your supply is low. Amazon has a pretty good selection

Then hop to the next blog for more chances to win. And sign up for my email list (on the right) so you never miss another fun contest!
