Review Policy

Thanks for your interest in having your book reviewed at Seductive Musings! I am a reader who is passionate about the romance genre. I love to read stories about love. If you are an author, publicist, or publisher who would like to submit your book(s) for review at Seductive Musings here are some things you might like to know:
  • My reviews are my honest opinion and I do not accept monetary compensation for my reviews.
  • The review will include a brief synopsis of who the characters are and what makes their love story special. I try very hard not to include spoilers or too much detail about the plot in my review, but I will include what I liked and disliked about the book so that another reader can make their own assessment on whether they would like to read the book or not.
  • I try to only accept books for review that capture my interest and I think I will enjoy reading. While I am committed to reviewing all of the books I accept for review, I can't necessarily guarantee that it will be reviewed by a certain date unless specifically requested ahead of time. Generally I like to post no more than one review per day so that it receives adequate attention, therefore at this time I am not able to accept every request for review. Reviewing and blogging is something that I love and that I take seriously. I devote a lot of time to it (pretty much daily), but my family, friends and career will always be my top priorities as I am sure you can understand.
  • Books that are reviewed at Seductive Musings come from a variety of sources and I always try to indicate in my review how the book was obtained...whether it be from a author, publisher, publicist, lending library or personal collection.
  • If you would like to submit a book for review that is already part of an established series, where it is important to have read the previous installments in order to understand or appreciate the newest novel, I would respectfully request that you submit all of the previous books in the series so that I can give an informed review.
  • I am happy to review books that have yet to be released, or have already been published for review. I accept ARC's, print books, as well as ebooks in PDF format. I do not sell ARCs, however I may give them away on my blog in a contest at some point after the release date unless you request otherwise.
  • All Seductive Musings reviews are posted on a variety of different online sources including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, GoodReads, Books On Board, and your publisher's website when possible. If there is a online location that you would like to make sure the review is posted to just let me know and I will do my utmost best to accommodate your request.
I love to read books in the following romance categories:
  • Historical Romance
  • Contemporary Romance
  • Erotic Romance
  • Romantic Suspense
  • Paranormal Romance (though I have been reading fewer of these)
At this point I am not able to review the following categories, though if additional reviewers are added to the Seductive Musings roster who have interest in these types of books that could change:
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Category Romances (such as Harlequin Desire, Silhoutte....)
  • Self-Published books (unless it is for an established author who has been previously published by an online or "New York" type publisher)
If you'd like to submit your book for review please use this Contact Form, to obviously contact me :)


Affiliate Disclosure

Seductive Musings is an Amazon affiliate. This blog receives a small (and I mean very small) referral fee for purchases made using a link on the blog, or making a purchase through the Seductive Musings Amazon store.  Amazon is not used solely to earn money for the upkeep of the blog, but also because the widgets are cool, easy to use, and serve the purposes to showcase books & anything else of interest with minimal effort, but most importantly because Amazon has great prices, products,  and offer both new and used items.

As a book addict I love that I can find just about anything I want in one place. If you are going to purchase a book, movie, music or anything else that Amazon sells anyway, and you know you won't pay more by using the links on this blog, or purchasing via the Seductive Musings Amazon store than you would by visiting Amazon on your own, I will be eternally grateful for supporting this blog by using the links. And don't forget that the referral fees from your purchases will help to sponsor the "Reader Rewards" giveaways, so it's a win for everyone :)


Usually there are many ways to earn extra entries, however this is dependent on each giveaway to accommodate author, publisher, or guest requests.  Here are a few ways to earn extra entries, above and beyond the mandatory requirements to be eligible to win a giveaway, that are regularly implemented.  The amount of extra entries is subject to change at any time.

Extra Entry qualifications:
  • If you have a blog, or even if you don't, you can earn extra entries by telling your friends. If they successfully enter to win and mention that you sent them you can each earn extra entries. You can blog about it with a link to this post, post it on Facebook, Twitter, email...or even word of mouth (good for 5 entries for the referrer and the commenter for each friend) . Please note that to earn the points they must mention your GFC name so that I can match you.
  • You can also earn extra entries by sharing a flipbook excerpt on Facebook, Twitter, your website or blog or other social media sites when a flipbook is included in the giveaway you are entering. You can earn 5 entries for each place that you share it and leave a link in the comments.
  • Purchase any item from the Seductive Musings Amazon store by using links within the post, or the Amazon widget contained within the post and email a copy of your purchase receipt to the email contact on the blog no later than the deadline to enter (email available in sidebar or menu bar). Sorry purchases made prior to this date do not apply, and link contained in the post must be used. No faxes or snail mail copies are allowed. No purchases are necessary to win. (good for 25 entries, or 50 entries if a purchase is made from the featured author's available titles)
Rules and disclaimers for Seductive Musings giveaways:
  • Winners must meet the territory mailing restrictions set by the sponsor of the giveaway (example:  This contest is open to US mailing addresses only)
  • Due to the content of the material shared at Seductive Musings each winner must be at least 18 years or older, and/or of legal age in the country in which they reside
  • An entry deadline will be provided for each giveaway, and the winner(s) will be posted in a seperate post listing the Google user name used when making their entry, as well as the item that was given away.
  • Winner(s) are selected using Random.org, or by the sponsor of the giveaway depending on their individual preferences
  • Winner(s) have THREE calendar days from the date they are posted to provide a mailing address/email address. If Seductive Musings is not contacted within three calendar days of the winners announcement, a replacement winner may be selected.  Once a replacement winner is announced the previously posted winner is no longer eligible to receive the prize. Generally there are no exceptions, but special consideration may be given around holidays, or technical difficulties at Seductive Musings that would prevent a winner from contacting the blog.
  • The prize(s) are generally mailed directly from the sponsor of the giveaway and no substitutions are allowed
  • Winners are subject to one copy/prize per household, which means that if you win the same title in two or more contests, that you will only receive one copy of the title in the mail

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
