REVEALING RUBY (Bound and Determined #1.5) by Lavinia Kent

As the proprietress of London’s most discreet house of pleasure, Madame Rouge—Ruby to her clientele—prefers to keep her own company. The first rule in her establishment? She never, ever personally entertains the customers. However, the tall, dark, and provocatively tattooed American sailor who shows up on her doorstep makes Ruby wonder whether some rules were made to be broken. If she indulges, even just once, Ruby’s loyal patrons might get the wrong idea. If she doesn’t, she may never stop fantasizing about where that tattoo leads. . . .

Patricia Rosemoor and Susannah Sandlin Talk Romantic Suspense

Romantic suspense authors Patricia Rosemoor and Susannah Sandlin sat down to talk about their genre, real life experiences that influenced their writing and their latest releases, DANGEROUS and DEADLY, CALM AND COLD.

THE PRINCE (The Florentine #.05) by Sylvain Reynard

THE PRINCE, a novella by Sylvain Reynard, is a prequel to THE RAVEN, the first full-length novel in his new Florentine series. I find the term “novella” to be too dull and lifeless to describe THE PRINCE. I believe the word “prelude” would be much more appropriate because it effectively expresses the beauty and lyrical prose of this short work.


The Dallas SWAT team is hiding one helluva secret . . . they're a pack of wolf shifters. The team of elite sharpshooters is ultra-secretive—and also the darlings of Dallas. This doesn't sit well with investigative journalist Mackenzie Stone. They must be hiding something . . . and she's determined to find out what. Keeping Mac at a distance proves impossible for SWAT team commander Gage Dixon. She's smart, sexy, and makes him feel alive for the first time in years. But she's getting dangerously close to the truth—and perilously close to his heart.

#HunkDay: Sweater Weather

It's winter again and that means time for curling up at home, drinking hot cocoa (or hot toddies!) and watching netflix. It's also time for fluffy blankets and chunky sweaters. That's right, it's most certainly Sweater Weather. The only thing I love more than a hot man in a warm sweater is when he takes off said sweater. We've rounded up some hunks today that are somehow mastering both being shirtless and wearing a sweater.
Agent Carter


All the Agent Carter action you can handle in weekly recaps with Elizabeth K. Mahon.

Top of My TBR

Like most writers, I was a reader first and as a kid I used to read voraciously. These days, with life getting so busy, I don’t have as much time to read as I used to. However, one of life’s great joys is having a huge TBR pile and a new year means a whole lot more books to add to it. Hooray!
Breaking Noah


We have two lovely new covers for you today--the first is BREAKING NOAH, a new sexy contemporary romance from Missy Johnson and Ashley Suzanne, and the second is FALLING FAST, a small-town romance from Tina Wainscott. Drumroll please...

Talking with Ella Frank

Ella Frank is the author of nine self published books that run the full gamut of romance genres. I’ve read everything Ella’s written and I’ve never been disappointed. In fact, I’m usually rendered speechless. Her latest release TEMPERANCE (The Arcanian Chronicles #1) is a step into the world of fantasy and paranormal. The world building in this tale is extraordinary and you’ll feel instantly engulfed in the twists of the plot as they surround you. The ever-busy Ella was able to juggle her schedule of book releases and a very recent family move to take some time and sit down for a little interview with us.
Can't Always Get

Trope Talk: Nurse Heroines

My favorite stories are love stories. I enjoy all sorts of other genres too. Historical fiction, dystopian fiction, biographies, you name it. But when I read love stories, I get to feel like I’m falling in love all over again. Those initial side long glances, wondering if he likes you back, that first kiss… AHH! So good. And, being that I’m a nurse, it’s always a bonus when love stories have medical themes. I thought I’d share some of my favorite romances, featuring nurse heroines.

What Makes a Great Small Town Romance Novel?

Growing up military, I always envied those people who lived in the same town all of their lives. I craved the continuity of knowing my neighbors and classmates from cradle to grave; or knowing every creak of the stairs and groan of the radiator in our home.

Creating My Own Happy Endings

One of the many reasons I love romance is that I like happy endings. I always have. I remember, as a ten-year-old, being so upset by a Sweet Valley High book that ended with Elizabeth in a coma that I never picked up another Sweet Valley book again. (Extra funny because I found out many years later that that was just a lead-in to a story where Elizabeth awoke from the coma with Jessica's personality! But my library didn't own the follow-up.) Sometimes I'm so upset by an ending that I have to fix it...

WOLVES’ BANE by Angela Addams

Morgan Stills is a woman without a future. At least, that’s what the carnival psychic tells her. Love is foretold as well, but too bad. She’s already been marked for death. She no sooner flees the psychic’s tent when she’s confronted by the biggest wolf she’s ever seen. A wolf that talks to her—right before she’s enveloped in a black cloak and dragged away.

A Single Kiss

A SINGLE KISS by Grace Burrowes

So, as Romance at Random’s resident Grace Burrowes super fangirl, I saw this book and was like, “Grace Burrowes wrote a contemporary? Gimme!”


Fifteen books ago, Kerrelyn Sparks had me at hello with this series. Any author that kicks off a series with an ancient vampire breaking off a fang biting into a blow up sex doll, only to fall in love with a dentist who faints at the sight of blood, is an author I need to read and possibly become best friends with! CROUCHING TIGER, FORBIDDEN VAMPIRE ties up this wonderful series with the correct amount of emotion and humor we’ve grown to love and expect from Kerrelyn Sparks.


Unlike the heroine of her popular thriller series, Georgia Delaune can’t afford to take risks or push sexual boundaries—unless you count spying through her neighbor’s bedroom window, and never missing a single move he makes. Colby Wilkes is more than willing to put on a show for the alluring woman next door. But his dominant side aches to show her the pleasures of submission up close. As a counselor, Colby is sensitive to Georgia’s fears. As a Dom at The Ranch, a private BDSM retreat, he’s the perfect teacher to unleash her passion. But just as Georgia lowers her emotional barriers, an unexpected complication arrives: a bad boy musician from Colby’s past who adds fuel to her heated imagination. Now, the lonely author has two gorgeous men eager to fulfill every fantasy she’s ever written—and one she’s never dared to dream….
