Hi pretties! I write romantic comedies and contemporary romance full of heart, humor,

It’s so fun to be back on the Fresh Fiction Blog!
If we haven’t met before, I’m Lisa Kessler and I write
paranormal romances that have plenty of twists and turns, danger and adventure, and sexy
romance that will curl your toes.
I love writing paranormals, but I don’t stop with vampires
and shifters. In the Sentinels of Savannah series, I’ve got a sexy crew of immortal pirates, but
they Read More...
My latest book, Under the
Northern Lights, is about Mallory Reynolds, a driven, passionate woman who is
pursuing her dream of photographing wild animals in remote locations. On the way to her
favorite spot in the Alaskan wilderness, the unthinkable happens—the engine on her plane
stalls and she crashes. Mallory survives the crash only to find herself injured with limited
supplies and Read More...
Do you remember the TV show Buck Rogers in the 25th Century?
For a while, it was my favorite show as a kid. For those who don’t remember, the premise of
the show was that a US astronaut got accidentally frozen on a deep space mission and then
was defrosted five hundred years later, only to find that Earth was a completely different place
to the one he remembered Read More...
The Rise and Fall of Florence Lawrence, the World’s First Movie Star
What makes a movie star? Today we’ve got the general
recipe down: mix bankable films with broad popularity. Add a healthy social media following
and sauté in critical acclaim. Garnish with head-turning red carpet appearances. And if you’re
very, very lucky, pair with a performance of your blockbuster movie’s Oscar-winning theme song
But Read More...
I’m a Kansas farm girl at heart, and I love a great cowboy
romance. Throw in a quirky small town and a dog, and I’m sold. That’s why I write small town
stories filled with humor and heart. And I love when a western romance does something
unexpected, like when Colorado cowboy heroes also play hockey. Oh wait, I know
that series. And if you Read More...
Romance tropes, cute dogs, and Scottish vacations - oh my! Enjoy the chat between author
Talia Hibbert and editorial manager Danielle Dresser!
Welcome to the Fresh Fiction blog! Can you tell us a little bit about the Ravenswood
Hi! Thanks so much for having me. ☺ Ravenswood
is a small English town where things aren’t as sweet and simple as they seem. The series
follows four prickly Read More...
Research has a way of pulling us historical authors down into
a never-ending spiral of, oooh, I must know more. For some of us, it’s the most fascinating
part of our job and for even more of us history geeks, it’s like catnip. We’ve always been
infatuated with those who came before us. But that must be the reason we love the genre to
Recently, I was listening to Read More...

chats with bestselling author CHRISTY CARLYLE!
Welcome back to the Fresh Fiction blog! For readers who aren’t familiar, can you tell
us more about the Duke’s Den Series?
The idea behind the series is that it’s a Victorian take on the reality TV show, Shark Tank,
in which inventors present their ideas to venture capitalists Read More...
Usually, the books I love make me laugh. But…the books I
love most make me cry. Anyone else out there love a good cry?
I still tear up just thinking about the on-page death of Snape
and how Harry names a child after him in the Harry Potter series. Or when they have to
put the dog down in Marley and Me
(especially since my dog was Read More...
From Chapter 1 of TIGHTROPE:
“There is no need to fear robots,” Dr. Pickwell declared. It
was clear that the suggestion that robots would displace workers annoyed him. He raised his
voice to be heard above the murmurs of the crowd. “I urge you to consider that these
machines could take the place of soldiers. Wars of the future will be fought with robots, not
human beings. Think of the lives Read More...
My new release, Boyfriend Maintenance, might not be about hot gamer
boys, but it stays true to my tagline, Nerdy and Flirty. I wanted to highlight a few things I
totally nerded out to in the book. There are few definitions for the word nerd, but I like “a
single-minded expert in a particular technical field” the best. With that Read More...
We’ve all met those couples who met, fell in love, and are
living happily ever after, right? I think it’s awesome when it happens and while I love hearing
about it – briefly – their story isn’t one you could make a romance novel out of. I mean, you
could, but why? Angst and beating the odds in one way or another make for an emotional story
and that’s what keeps you turning Read More...
Wow - the final book in your long-running and beloved Playful Brides
series is finally here with NO OTHER DUKE BUT YOU! What has this series meant to you
over the years?
Oh, it's meant so much. As I say in the dedication, the
series began as the stories of three friends, but the love that readers showed for them and the
books enabled me Read More...
Gosh, it’s hard to choose just five books. I love reading
romantic suspense, but I’m voracious when it comes to romantic thrillers. Give me an edge-of-
your-seat plot, pulse-pounding action with a love story thrown into the mix any day. There’s
nothing wrong with a straight romance either, but the right romantic thriller is like a cheese
plate paired with a glass of big, bold red wine—irresistible. I Read More...

Here's a chat between award-winning author Rachel Hauck and Fresh Fiction
Editorial Manager Danielle
A dual timeline novel is always so interesting - how the two time periods both juxtapose
and complement the other. How did you come up with the connection between these two

As soon as I round the bend from Chicago to Michigan, I see
a wall of clouds over Lake Michigan. Half of the sky is bright blue, the other half is steel gray,
as if Mother Nature has hung a banner announcing, Nightmare Ahead!
Lake-effect snow. My hands immediately tighten around
I see a Pure Michigan billboard, touting the beauty and
landmarks of the state, and laugh.
Lake-effect Read More...
Many of us are familiar with the story of Lady Diana Spencer,
the beautiful daughter of an Earl who married a prince at the age of nineteen only for the
marriage to founder and end in a well-publicised divorce. What is less known is that Diana
Spencer was not the first aristocrat of that name and that an ancestor of hers, Lady Diana
Spencer, daughter of the Duke of Marlborough, had a life that Read More...

“Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love
with. It's our great pleasure to present Terry Shames!

town Texas, and featuring Chief of Police Samuel Craddock. Jarrett Creek is based on a Read More...
I’m having so much fun writing what will eventually be the 4-
book Outlaw Mail Order
Brides series. The only hope these outlaws have in making a town where once was
their hideout was in getting wives and starting families. This series spilled over from my Men of Legend series Read More...

I love cowboys! I’m not talking about the guys who dress up in western garb during rodeo
season, but the real men who put on their Wranglers and boots, live on a ranch and work hard
Growing up in the country, where everyone knows you and your family for several generations,

A generator started up and spotlights clicked on inside the barn, illuminating the
dark corners. Nevada was close.
The light drew Macy’s attention to the right corner, which was roped off with red
crime scene tape. The forensic tech had designated this area as very sensitive because most
of the bones and the backpack had fallen here. Inside the tape, the techs had shifted the dirt
as Read More...
Alpha, beta, cinnamon roll; which is best? It’s a subject
about which many readers have strong opinions. But in case anyone’s confused, what do
these terms actually mean?
Well, the alphas are the leaders, the CEOs, the warriors, the
head of the shifter pack. They don’t have to be cruel or controlling, though sometimes they
are. On the other hand, the betas and cinnamon rolls are perhaps best defined by their
supportiveness Read More...
