"Tawny Weber has a gift when it comes to writing about hot SEALs and the woman they fall for. A SEAL's PLEASURE picks up where A SEAL's Secret ends and boy does Weber not disappoint. I loved the banter and the amazing journey Weber takes them on to finding their happily ever after together."
"When I think of the Beautiful Bastard series, I think of funny, sometimes irritating, but always extremely hot and sexual heroes. But with BEAUTIFUL SECRET, Christina Lauren give us a somewhat reluctant hero who doesn’t know what he wants, doesn’t know how to say what he wants, and is somewhat afraid to do anything. Niall Stella was so not what I was expecting (especially given he was Max’s little brother), but his quirky English charm won me over just the same..."

"My core story is a simple one: Love Conquers All. I still believe that’s essentially what I’m trying to convey, but I often use redemption themes in order to do it. I love flawed characters, those who are challenged by more than just forces beyond their control, because they are far more real to me. I don’t know anyone who has lived a perfect life; regret is something we all face, which is why characters that are pitted against themselves are often the most complex and interesting..."
"This is my first non-paranormal by Gena Showalter and now I can not wait to get my hands on the rest of this series.

"This author’s background in military life gives depth to her stories and characters. BEFORE I FALL is Ms. Scott’s first foray into the New Adult genre.

But the love story is endearing and makes you believe love really can conquer anything!"

I’ve been asked many times: how do you chose the setting of your stories? And why? I’ll be completely honest: I like to choose settings where I’ve actually been. So that means Texas! The reason is that I know what the cities look and feel like. Knowing where I am makes it easier to actually visualize the story taking place.
