The theme for the #Romancestagram hashtag over on Instagram this month is “Romance Retellings.” I have to say, this is one of my favorite themes so far, both as a reader and a writer.
Every month as the themes are announced, I scan to see if I have any books or favorite reads to share, and usually I have one or two, but this month is an embarrassment of riches. Or should I just confess–like most romance authors, I simply love retelling a classic, a favorite fairy tale, or giving a new spin to that old, adored movie.

There are all kinds of ways to find authors and books, but there are two new ones out there that have me filling up my TBR, and I thought I should share with you. Because, I’m nice that way. And I like enabling other people in their bookish habits. *Cue fiendish music……*
If you are on Instagram, then you want to make sure you are following RomanceLibrary and her #romancestagram hashtag because each week she and a number of other bloggers and readers (and of course, you can as well) are posting books from their favorite historical romance … Read more »

In my family, we never arrive or leave each other’s homes empty handed. If it isn’t being used, or you can’t use it up, you share it. Sharing is just part of being in my family. Books. Recipes. Food. Magazines.
My grandmother was infamous for always having some bit of advice she’d “clipped out of the paper just for you.”
And what is my favorite thing to share?
Books, of course.
As an avid reader, I end up with stacks of novels. (Yes, I still read paper. I just am not an electronic fan.) So before they get stacked so … Read more »
When I travel (which I will be this coming week) I inevitably take three books with me. One for the outbound flight. One for the return flight. And a backup book in case Book A or Book B is, well, a dud.
I think sometimes I spend more time picking my three books than I do all the other things that go into planning a trip–booking everything, making arrangements, packing, et al.
Those three books get A LOT of consideration.
But here is my dilemma with this lot.
Egads, what to read first? This is like the gold strike of … Read more »
I was on vacation recently and took a stack of books with me. As one does.
My husband always cringes and asks, “How much room do you need for the books?”
My answer is always the same, “Enough for all of them.”
He’s a patient man.
First Things First
Before we even got to the airport, I’d broken out Valerie Bowman‘s The Right Kind of Rogue, and it turns to be a great book to while away a lot of airplane hours. In fact I was a little sad when we arrived early, and I had to stop… Read more »

I’ve been reading like a starving woman lately. Just hungry for good stories. So I thought I would share with you some of the good ones I’ve stumbled across lately.
The Jane Austen Project by Kathleen A. Flynn
The Jane Austen Project is, on the outside, a truly outrageous notion. Scientists from the future travel back to Regency England to find Jane Austen’s letters and an unpublished novel before they are lost forever. And as silly and contrived at that might seem, it is anything but. In the process we meet Henry Austen, Jane’s brother, and slowly are … Read more »

As of this post, you will find the ebook of Brazen Angel free. Everywhere. Took some doing, but given that this is Brazen Angel’s 20th anniversary, I thought it would be fun to give back some love.
After all this book, and all of you, started all of this.
The cool part of Brazen Angel has as much to do about the back story of how it was published, as it does the adventures of Sophia and Giles. But seriously
, have your read, My Favorite Hero? If not, go ahead and click on it. … Read more »
