I’m starting a new weekly series on JLR, to highlight my favorite series and tell you why I love them so much.  I’m starting this Spotlight off with one of very first M/M series that I ever read: Faith, Love & Devotion, by Tere Michaels!

I actually found a first print edition copy of Faith & Fidelity (Book #1) in my local used book store earlier this month… but since I already own the series, I thought it would make a great prize! So keep reading for your chance to win a paperback copy of the first book in the Faith, Love & Devotion series!

Sometimes reading a romance series is like being a parent; you follow a relationship from inception to happily ever after, hovering and wringing your hands as your favorite characters fall in love and grow into themselves. You fret as they make bad relationship decisions, you cry when they cry, and you stay up until three in the morning, unable to put the book down, as they avoid danger and death.

Tere Michaels’ ‘Faith, Love & Devotion’ series has given me two such relationships: Evan Cerelli and Matt Haight, and Jim Shea and Griffin Drake.
