Countdown to Boas & Tiaras: Get to Know Keynote Julie Ann Walker
Author Spotlight / June 8, 2017

Today’s Boas & Tiaras fun facts will help you get to know our keynote author Julie Ann Walker’s New York Times bestselling Black Knights Inc. series! You can meet the fabulous Julie and 13 more authors when you join us for tea at the Adolphus on June 10. What is Black Knights Inc.? It’s a romantic suspense series about a Chicago-based covert government defense firm—and here’s the best part—disguised as a custom motorcycle shop. Enter a crew of sexy bikers/secret agents fighting for the women they love. The heroines can be every bit as tough as the alphas they fall for, so each book is a thrill ride of romance and danger. What’s the latest title? WILD RIDE, book nine, came out in April 2017, delighting droves of fans who have been waiting for our beloved Ozzie’s story. (Who can resist a former Navy SEAL in glasses who quotes THE PRINCESS BRIDE? Swoon.) Ozzie meets his match when tasked with distracting investigative reporter Samantha Tate from uncovering the secrets of Black Knights Inc. But as Samantha charms him with her wit, Ozzie is tempted to let his guard down and reveal all his own secrets… What’s the reading order? You…

Spotlight on Emmy Curtis
Author Spotlight / May 5, 2017

I don’t know how many of you are old enough to remember Top Gun (am I aging myself here?), but if you like the idea of military heroes competing in the air, and getting frisky on the ground, my new series, Elite Ops might be right up your alley. Set in the world of Red Flag, an international military exercise where reputations, careers and billion-dollar contracts are made and lost, the first book of the series, ACES WILD, starts a wild ride of espionage, sabotage, and finding love in extraordinary circumstances. In the heat of the Nevada desert, the most elite military pilots in the world are about to engage in some friendly competition. Only this year, someone is changing all the rules… RAF pilot Dexter Stone has been through his fair share of sticky situations. After living through a crash in enemy territory where no one expected him to walk away, the Red Flag training exercises should be a piece of cake – assuming he can keep his mind on the mission and not on the smart mouth of his gorgeous American competition. As one of the few women in a sky full of hotshot flyboys, Maj. Eleanor Daniels…

A Note From Tracy Wolff
Author Spotlight / January 23, 2017

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having an amazing week! I am, since it’s release week for FLAWED, the final book in my NY Times bestselling Ethan Frost series. I had so much fun writing this book and am so excited that I finally get to share it with you! I’ve been wanting to write Tori’s story ever since I first created her to be Chloe’s roommate in Ruined. With her ever-changing hair color, smart mouth and bad girl attitude, I knew she had a story to tell. And does she ever! And Miles is one heck of a sexy engineer, with one heck of a redemption story. I can’t wait to hear what you think!!! Here’s the link if you want to check it out: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/251132/flawed-by-tracy-wolff/9781101884881/ Here’s the blurb: The bestselling Ethan Frost series introduces a tantalizing new hero—and the broken woman only he can save.

Stefanie London | What do YOU Want for Christmas?
Author Spotlight / November 15, 2016

Hi Fresh Fiction readers! If we haven’t met before, I’m Stefanie London. Lovely to meet you! As I’m writing this message I’m already in the throes of planning Christmas—where we’re going to put the tree this year (in our never-ending quest to find the perfect spot to fit a 6ft tree in our Toronto apartment), what date I need to send gifts back home to Australia, what I’m going to buy my husband (anyone else find that a constant struggle?) I love Christmas and all the associated traditions. Every year we marathon the Die Hard movies, we make a big fuss over Christmas lunch and we always over cater. Naturally, being such a lover of the holidays, I adore Christmas stories too. My November release, Millionaire Under the Mistletoe, has all the things I love about holiday stories—a little snow-bound (or in this case storm-bound) action for the hero and heroine, a decorating the tree scene and, of course, the healing power of Christmas magic. “With the beauty of a white Christmas, some funny encounters, and a little holiday magic, MILLIONAIRE UNDER THE MISTLETOE is a charming romance that will warm you up this Winter.” – Books of All Kinds….

Hate At First Sight by Avery Flynn
Author Spotlight / November 14, 2016

I am a total sucker for the enemies to lovers trope. OMG, the who heat and banter and fighting the feelings. I just love it! So it’s no surprise that it’s one of my favorite tropes to write. In HER ENEMY PROTECTOR, Lucas and Ruby don’t just start off as enemies. He’s actually blackmailing her to be his fake fiancee. Sure, he has his reasons (you know, saving the world and all) but you know there are sexy shenanigans ahead as those two fall hard for each other. So to celebrate the enemies to lovers trope, here are ten movies I highly recommend binge watching that include that theme! Silver Linings Playbook Leap Year Tangled The Proposal Enchanted Something’s Gotta Give Down With Love Sweet Home Alabama Bridget Jones Diary Ten Things I hate About You HER ENEMY PROTECTOR by Avery Flynn Tempt Me By-the-book secret agent Lucas Bendtsen will do anything to keep his country safe—even if that means blackmailing the stepdaughter of a notorious mobster who is about to sell guns to a group of terrorists. The plan? He’ll pose as her fiancé in order to access her stepfather’s guarded compound and find out the location of the…
