I believe in the possibility of fast friendships. When conditions are right, friendships can both develop quickly and hold “fast” over time. I explore the key role such relationships can play in my debut novel, The Art of Falling.
We enjoyed having Alexis Morgan with us recently to talk about the latest book, More Than a Touch, in her new Snowberry Creek series.
My apologies, I thought I had wrapped up all of our 2013 giveaway winners by the end of last year, but one got by me! So our thanks go out to NAL and Lauren Jameson for giving us a chance to help celebrate the release of Breathe.
I always enjoy reading about characters from small-town America. Maybe because I’m from a small town – born, raised, and currently living in one. Where everyone knows your name, your business, your family and heaven knows what else. As far as I’m concerned, that’s the best way to live, because even though those folks may [...]
Let me start off by saying I love Leif Brevik, the hero in my latest Snowberry Creek book. I confess that I fall a little bit in love with the hero in every book I write. After all, I spend a lot of time in their company over the months it takes to tell their [...]

I’ve been really enjoying Elizabeth Boyle‘s Rhymes With Love series, and it’s been a great pleasure for me to review the two most recent installments: Have You Any Rogues (reviewed in December) and If Wishes Were Earls (reviewed earlier today). This book, the third full-length novel in the series, gives us a deeper insight into [...]
Last spring, when I was on book tour, I was in Houston and met a lovely young woman by the name of Tiffani Storck. She confided to me that she longed to do exactly what I was doing, and I was so touched by her enthusiasm that I dedicated the book that I had just [...]
If you’re always looking for strong heroines in your romance, look no further than Bronwyn Scott’s books. Especially in her latest releases, A Lady Risks All and A Lady Dares. These women rely on themselves, no backup from any corner of the aristocracy, and they make life an adventure all on their own. And when [...]
The Ladies of Impropriety duet was a chance to do something different, and I think it accomplishes that! I loved writing these stories that attempt to mix nontraditional settings and experiences with enough of tradition to appeal to a wide variety of reader. When you browse the bookshelves these days (which are few and far [...]
We so enjoyed having Tracy Garrett with us for the holidays to celebrate her new novella in the western-themed anthology, Wishing for a Cowboy, that hit the shelves in November. Don’t you just love cowboys?
