I think Caroline Linden should change her name to “Caroline Linden–the romance author you should be reading.” Because, quite frankly, you should be reading her. Her books are wonderful and delightful and hard to put down. I had the privilege of reading One Night in London last spring, and have been so bummed ever since that I have to wait so much longer than anyone else to get to read the next one. So if that doesn’t convince you to give her a try, then here are five things that might:
1) The last book you read: Five Red Herrings… Read more »
It seems truly appropriate that my Brothel blog is followed by Delilah Marvelle. She loves writing about sex and madames and the madcap adventures of Regency rakes. Much more romantic than my Skagway adventures, and great reading to boot.
Delilah is a funny, earnest, wonderful person who loves writing–truly loves telling stories and that is why I admire her. She worked so hard to get published and hasn’t let up even after she’s published. So if you haven’t tried one of her books, I would suggest you do, especially if you like your heroines adventurous and your heroes seriously wicked.… Read more »
If you haven’t read a Regency romance by the skilled and talented Candice Hern, you are missing out. Not only is Candice a great writer, but her knowledge of the period is exceptional. Once you get done meeting Candice, make sure you wander over to her website and view her collections–Regency prints, fans, and alike and an ever-expanding Regency Glossary that every reader should have bookmarked. But best of all, I am thrilled to call her one of my dear friends. Now I hope to extend that privilege to you as well as you discover Five Things About Candice Hern:… Read more »
I have known Marcella Burnard for eons. We met when we both worked for a large software company and discovered we both were aspiring writers. We’d get together at lunch and talk writing and dream about the days when we could chuck corporate life and write full time. So fast forward to now and we both have writing careers and years of friendship between us. I was totally thrilled this spring when her first book, Enemy Within, was nominated for the RITA award in two categories: Best First Book and Best Paranormal. Tres Cool! I have to admit, I … Read more »
This week I would like to introduce you to Miranda Neville, a wonderful historical romance writer and one of the six fabulous authors who have pooled their collective knowledge and talents over at the brand new site The Ballroom Blog. She’s stopped by here at my humble blog to offer her Five Things and show off her wonderful new book–which I am going to tuck into my bag for my upcoming vacation!
1. Favorite indulgence: Leonidas white chocolate truffles and Veuve Cliquot Champagne. Please send me the thin gene so that I can afford to eat the first, and … Read more »
As I wrote last Saturday, I made a plea to my fans over on Facebook that the well had gone dry on what to talk about over here on my blog, and they in turn offered up a bucket load of questions. Here is what I have plucked out today from this treasure quest of “I want to knows.”
Today’s questions are courtesy of: Erica Lynn Thrasher and Janelle Wilbanks.
Do you find that you have time for social life when a deadline is approaching?
A social life? What exactly is that? To be honest, I’ve taken … Read more »
…And I am going to answer them. You may, or may not know, but I asked my wonderful and enthusiastic Facebook friends if they had a question or questions for me, what would they be? Bless their hearts, they flooded me with a tide of questions for me to answer on my blog.
Quite frankly, I was sitting down to blog and getting a bit stumped. It could be that I am nearing my deadline, so I am just a bit focused, ahem, elsewhere. Happily, these questions have certainly refreshed the blog well, and I will probably use them … Read more »
This Thursday brings us the two-fer special via women’s fiction author, Megan Crane, who, when she whips off her trade book exterior, transforms into the wonderful and sexy, Harlequin Presents author, Caitlin Crews. I so want a secret identity. Will work on that while you get to learn Five Things about Megan Crane/Caitlin Crews:
1) Favorite indulgence: Anything and everything chocolate. The darkest and most sinful chocolate, please. From modest chocolate bars you can buy in the supermarket to over-the-top truffle creations or molten chocolate desserts in restaurants. I love it all!
2) The last book you read: I read … Read more »
I was struck with a huge case of cover envy the other day when I saw Robyn DeHart’s e-novella release, Her Gentleman Thief. It is just stunning and sexy and all about the romance, which I adore in a cover.
So I asked Robyn, who I met several years ago, to drop by because: a) I like her; b) she writes great books; and c) I knew I shouldn’t be the only gaping in envy at this cover. Or alone in reading the story. So with my usual flourish and a wave, Five Things about Robyn DeHart:
1) Favorite … Read more »
I am fascinated by all the authors who are writing e-reads, like Lavinia Kent, who is releasing The Real Duchesses of London novellas, so I asked her to drop by and share five things about herself you and I might not know. That and I liked her book trailer. So without further ado, Five Things About Lavinia Kent:
1) Favorite dessert
: Really good Key Lime Pie.
2) Most played song on my iPod
: It varies enough that I can’t answer.
3) Secret passion (hobby, collections, sport, thrill seeking): Reality TV. I love it, particularly Bravo’s Real Housewives. It … Read more »
