Best/Worst Valentine’s Day Contest

In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, Romance at Random is hosting a Best and Worst Valentine’s story contest. We’ll have Random House authors and staff posting their own stories and we want you to join in! Every person who sends in a story will be entered to win a dinner from Plated shipped straight to your home and a box of chocolate Kind bars.

We’re looking for anecdotes about your most romantic Valentine’s evening, a hilarious screw-up of a date, an epic grand gesture that rivals Cupid’s arrows, an ill-fated blind date–if you’ve got a good story, tell us about it!

Kim from our Romance at Random team is kicking things off with her own WORST story:

“Last Valentine’s Day my boyfriend surprised me with a romantic trip to Vermont. He planned it perfectly down to the smallest details…the only thing he didn’t account for was running into his ex-girlfriend at the same bed and breakfast the next morning! He was so mortified that he ran upstairs before she saw him and left me downstairs in the kitchen confused. I had to follow him up to find out what was really going on. He ended up sneaking out to the car and I got our breakfast to go!”

Can you top that?!

Email with your story by February 13. (between 500 and 1,000 words). Winners will be announced on February 14th. Looking forward to hearing your stories :) For official contest rules, click HERE.
