Patty Blount | Top 5 Favorite Young Adult Novels/Authors

Angie Thomas – THE HATE U GIVE is probably the best YA written in the last ten years. First, let me say straight up, I'm a white woman who's never experienced racism. I've experienced sexism. But the closest I've come to experiencing real racism was listening to someone call Italians "dirty" while at a book fair Read More...



Author Reader Match: Jacqueline Friedland

Writes: Plot-driven historical fiction chock full of flawed characters yearning to be saved. Picture a complicated, brooding widower, a poverty-stricken teenager, an overly-entitled heiress, and a strong-willed runaway slave. Each is somehow able to bring light into the lives of others in ways that also help them to find their own redemption. About Me: Forty-year-old attorney-turned-author seeking readers for historical fiction about a Read More...



Kathy Lyons | Rejection Therapy

Ever hear of Rejection Therapy? Guess what it is: You eat lots of weird foods to find out what your body rejects most violently. You say “no” to at least one person a day. You go through your own closet and “reject” clothing by throwing it out. At least 28 pieces a day. Once there’s nothing left Read More...



Krystal Ford | Book reviews of My Top Five Contemporary Romances

MY OXFORD YEAR, by JULIE WHELAN If you're a poetry fan Why I loved it: The novel starts off going right down the old troupe: young student, Ella, sleeps with handsome professor, Jamie, both want to keep it casual since Ella is going back to the united states at the end of one year to Read More...



5 Essential Things All Highlanders Need

I love a book filled with adventure, passion and humor—with a mandatory HEA, of course. Add a medieval setting—preferably in the Highlands of Scotland—and I’ll stay up way too late finishing the story!! But I can only imagine how tough it must have been to actually live there in the 1450s: danger from brigands and other clans, blustery cold in the winter months, the very real possibility of starvation, not to Read More...

Rhys Bowen | Her Royal Spyness

It has taken twelve books but I think Georgie is finally learning to stand up for herself. When we first met her in HER ROYAL SPYNESS she was stuck in dreary Scottish Castle Rannoch, supposed to make a good match with one of those "half-lunatic, buck-toothed, chinless, spineless and utterly awful princes who still seem to litter Europe." The family had singled out Read More...



Interview with hero Gray Rogers

From DEFENDING ALLYE by Author Susan Stoker So you are the infamous Gray Rogers -- former Navy SEAL, current "Mountain Mercenary". What can you tell us about this group you belong to and how is it different from when you were in the military? We don't exactly advertise our services. For the most part the Mountain Mercenaries are kept on the Read More...



Kadie Scott | Top 10 Reasons to Love a Cowboy

I am the first to put my hand up when I see a new cowboy romance hit the shelves, which is probably why I love to write cowboys. It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it. 😉 But what is it about the idea of a cowboy that we love? What's the draw? Just for fun (my husband is sitting here rolling his eyes as I giggle away) here are my Read More...



Author Match | Scarlett Cole and DEEP COVER

Writes: Steamy contemporary romance and romantic suspense. You want to party all night (read stay awake reading until 3am) with tortured rock stars, I've got you covered.

Catherine Hemmerling | The Books that Shaped Me

I am often asked who my favorite authors are, but I don't know that anyone has asked me what my favorite books are and how they may have shaped who I am as an author. I'd like to talk about three books that have contributed to who I am today. THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE, C.S. Lewis Read More...



Maria Vale | Dear Reader:

To anyone who has read, would like to read, or has never heard of THE LAST WOLF, I will make this fast. Promise. My debut, THE LAST WOLF, introduced a pack of what would typically be called werewolves, though they would never say that about themselves. Pack, yes. Wolves, yes. Werewolves, no. These are not Read More...



Exclusive Excerpt: Half Empty by Catherine Bybee

"You're chasing me," Trina said as she answered the phone. The thing rang at nearly the same time it had the night before. Wade's name popped up and made her smile. She'd thought about calling him twice during the day, and then life distracted her to another closet, and in this case, another safe for the locksmith to crack open. "Guilty." His voice was pure southern charm Read More...



Return to the Sentinel Wars with Shannon K. Butcher's BLOOD BOND

Blood Bond by Shannon K. Butcher Justice has never known freedom. She woke up ten years ago, naked and alone Read More...



Cynthia Breeding | Londinium

Long before dukes and earls rode in fancy carriages through London's Hyde Park, and long before the Norman-French claimed victory at Hastings, Romans established the city of Londinium. Julius Caesar first visited Britain in 55 B.C., but it wasn't until A.D. 43 that Emperor Claudius decided the Thames was a favorable shipping route from the North Sea and established a town in the area just east of present day Westminster Read More...



Shana Gray | Run Away to Vegas

Have you ever been to Vegas? Have you walked along The Strip and felt the excitement? Vegas has its own unique sound. When you go in the casinos there's a hum, a ringing of all the slot machines and games, for those that have been you know what I mean. But there's more to Vegas than just gambling, there's the shows, the food, the sightseeing, golf, shopping, and more. It's almost Read More...

It's our great pleasure to present Nancy Herkness. Writes: Contemporary romance set in places Nancy knows well from personal experience (New York City and West Virginia). Her July 24th release, Read More...



L.E. Rico | Making Mayhem

Welcome to Mayhem, Minnesota where the cats wear sweaters, the local priest dispenses love advice and you can find your fortune in the bottom of a pie plate. Sounds like a pretty strange place, right? Yeah, well that's what I was going for when I created the backdrop for my series of sweet, small town romances called The Whiskey Sisters. Said sisters Read More...



Christina Phillips | My fave friends-to-lovers romcoms

I absolutely love romantic comedies, and one of my fave tropes is friends-to-lovers. Sometimes a slow-burn romance, when the hero and heroine are trying so hard not to overstep that line, is just perfect. In my latest release, ONCE UPON A PLAYER, both Lucas and Violet fall for each other as soon as they see each other, but decide not to cross Read More...



Sariah Wilson | #MOONSTRUCK

My newest release, #MOONSTRUCK, which goes on sale July 17, is the second in my #Lovestruck series for Montlake about "hometown" girls who fall in love with celebrities, with the help of social media. In #MOONSTRUCK, Maisy Harrison is a hairdresser and lead singer in the fledging rock band Yesterday. She and her three brothers Read More...



Donna Michaels | The Final Ranger

Thank you so much for hosting me today to talk about my latest release in The Men of At-Ease Ranch Series. My original contract with Entangled was only for three books, but thanks to the fans that wrote to my publisher, I was contracted to write books for the remaining two Rangers. My new release: Read More...



Elizabeth Heiter | Top 5 Reasons to Write (or Read!) a Series

In the past five years, I’ve published books in three distinct series: The Profiler (a psychological suspense series featuring FBI profiler Evelyn Baine, whose job is to get into the heads of killers), The Lawmen (a romantic suspense series about three friends who make a pact to join the FBI Read More...



Rachelle Dekker | Five Character Types Every Suspense Novel Needs

Characters make or break a story, no matter the genre or theme. Readers have to be able to take the journey with each character that is written into the pages. They need to be able to place themselves in the characters’ shoes so they can experience the story as if it were a part of their own. When you accomplish this, you create a reading experience that is unforgettable. When creating a suspenseful setting and Read More...



Naima Simone | Did You Do Something Different with Your Hair?

I remember buying my first Christine Feehan book over fifteen years ago—DARK GOLD, Book 3 in her Dark series. I also remember almost not buying it, and the reason was entirely superficial. The hero's hair was horrible. Like a pompadour and mullet got together and had all kinds of crazy wrong off-spring. Yeah, that bad. But my twin sister, who'd already Read More...
