EXCERPT: More Than a Touch by Alexis Morgan

Thursday, January 16, 2014 13:00 2 Comments

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 [...]

EXCERPT: Her Christmas Wish by Tracy Garrett

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 13:00 No Comments

This is one of my favorite scenes in Tracy Garrett‘s novella in the new Wishing for a Cowboy anthology out this month. I love an alpha cowboy backing his woman into a wall, door, whatever and taking his pleasure of her. And this scene goes that much further due to the fact Will hasn’t seen [...]

GUEST BLOG & EXCERPT: When does a Mistress become a submissive? by Joey W. Hill

Friday, December 6, 2013 12:00 13 Comments

“How do you get your ideas?” It’s the question most often asked by readers, and one I’m never sure how to intelligently answer (grin), because a story comes to me in flashes or snippets. A bit of overheard dialogue, the way someone turns their head, even a scent, can unlock a scene idea or a [...]

I’m a big-time cowboy lover. Love rodeos. Love the cowboy swagger. Those boots and cowboy hats, black or white. Guess that’s why I love Ben Grady. He’s definitely a cowboy, in charge of the family ranch and runs it exactly the way he wants. But I also love his vulnerability when it shows itself in [...]

EXCERPT: Twilight with the Infamous Earl by Alexandra Hawkins

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 11:00 1 Comment

These Lords of Vice are going to be missed. Bad boys to the bone, they carved their lives their own way, and romance readers had such fun going along on each and every journey with them. Last is Frost, the baddest boy of them all. I’m sure there’s debates out there on what readers expect [...]
