STRONG ENOUGH by M. Leighton

"STRONG ENOUGH is the first installment in M. Leighton’s adult, contemporary Tall, Dark and Dangerous erotic, romantic suspenseseries. There is a slight cross over between Tall, Dark and Dangerous and her Bad Boys series. This is bounty hunter/hired assassin Jasper King, and painter Muse Harper’s storyline. You do not have to have read Leighton’s Bad Boys series to follow the story."

#TBT Cover: THE TAKER by Alma Katsu

"Today’s #TBT Cover has me feeling a little nostalgic. I am a huge fan of author Alma Katsu, if you don’t know her, you should..."

ON THE SHELF: Writing Outside The Box

My favorite thing is when an author earns his or her chops in a very specific sub-genre and then BOOM! they switch it up and write in a new sub-genre that you didn’t see coming. It’s the true test of an excellent writer and storyteller when they can cross over like that. Today's On The Shelf is dedicated to those authors who write outside of their comfort zone...

TROPE TALK: Spotlight on Sophie Jordan’s ALL THE WAYS TO RUIN A ROGUE

We know what themes we like when it comes to our books. Themes are the lifeblood of a good romance novel. There are the new trends and old favorites, but we all have our favorite tropes: go-tos when we want to be almost certain we’ll love the book. Sometimes they’re our triggers and push all of our buttons, sometimes we auto-read based on a few descriptive phrases, but we know them and we love them. Every Tuesday, this is the place to talk tropes…

Love & Laughter: Authors Share Wedding Day Memories

In keeping with the humor of her latest August Icicle Falls novel A WEDDING ON PRIMROSE STREET, Sheila thought it would be fun to tell a funny anecdote from her own wedding—and asked author friends Marie Bostwick, Brenda Novak, and Susan Wiggs to share light-hearted moments from their own wedding ceremonies.

Review: THE BOURBON KINGS by J.R. Ward

"If you’ve read JR Ward’s paranormal books, you know the woman knows how to properly build a world within the confines of a romance story. The world she builds in THE BOURBON KINGS is no less detailed and all encompassing than her vampire-filled town of Caldwell, NY. Imagine Dallas and Dynasty getting drunk off expensive bourbon, and having a hot, quick and very messy one-night stand; the product would be the Easterly estate in Louisville, Kentucky. The Bradford family is a nighttime soap opera just waiting to happen and it is glorious!"

POLDARK: Episode 6

So much drama in this week’s episode! Demelza goes to a ball at the Warleggan’s and Ross acts like a total reckless alpha hole for most of the second half of the episode. This show is just burning through plot, which makes sense since these 8 episodes are adapted from the first 2 books in the series. So much happened, I had to watch the episode twice to get everything down and I’m sure I missed a few things. Let’s get to recapping...

Review: SPIDER’S TRAP by Jennifer Estep

"There’s nothing unlucky about the 13th installment of Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series, SPIDER’S TRAP. Estep continues to stay on the top of my urban fantasy reading list with Gin Blanco and her gang of sidekicks."

ON THE SHELF: Summer Vacation Reads (and a Fall Preview!)

This week’s On The Shelf is a combo platter of awesome. It’s a summer beach read/second half of the year preview all in one. Yes, I went on vacation last week, sat on a beach and read these books; but, many of these are books you won’t get to read until a little later in the year. Such is the life of a book blogger, don’t hate! I’m pleased to say I returned from the beach with nary a shark bite and several books you’re going to want to add to your TBR shelf!

The Magic of Martha’s Vineyard

"Nearly 30 years ago, I went to Martha’s Vineyard for the first time. I disembarked from the ferry on a sunny day and boarded an old school bus that had uncomfortable seats and a curious rattle..."

TROPE TALK: The Fantasy of Non-Consensual Sex

Guaranteed to get a response one way or the other, the fantasy of non-consensual sex is polarizing for readers. What’s behind the appeal? it may be the giving up of control, or an extreme desire for domination, or even the idea of complete responsibility-free sex. And romance novels can be a safe place to explore this. [Warning: readers who are sensitive to this topic are advised caution.]

POLDARK: Episode 5

If you thought that things were finally going to ease up for Ross after last week’s episode when copper was discovered in Wheal Leisure, and he found out that he was going to be a daddy, you were wrong...
