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.
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 [...]
Despite being a native Michigander, Alyssa Alexander is pretty certain she belongs somewhere sunny. And tropical. Where drinks are served with little paper umbrellas. In the meantime, she’s inviting us to take a ride with her into Regency England where Julian Travers, Earl of Langford, fights the battle between love and espionage in her debut [...]
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 [...]

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?
Another huge thanks to Lynn Viehl for her very informative and entertaining guest blog about Victorian Christmases. Don’t know about you, but I learned a lot reading that post!
All right, everyone who hasn’t even started their Christmas shopping, raise your hands! That’s me, waving a bit frantically. Granted, now that the nieces and nephews are a bit older, there isn’t as much to do. Still, there are the five great-nephews and one soon-to-arrive great-niece that keep me looking at catalogs and scoping out [...]
We were happy to have Alexandra Hawkins blog about those bad boys she’s so very good at creating as she celebrated the closing book in her Lords of Vice series, Twilight with the Infamous Earl.
Our thanks to Carrie Ann Ryan for visiting us earlier this month with a guest blog to celebrate the release of Ever After, a paranormal anthology which also includes Marie Harte, Rebecca Royce, Lia Davis, and Leia Shaw.
It’s always a treat to have HelenKay Dimon visit the Pond! Don’t know about you, but I enjoyed her guest blog about the perfect hero and heroine in romance, and in her case Forest and Jordan in Everything You Need to Know.
You are never more Victorian than when you celebrate Christmas, and this is because a great many of today’s holiday traditions began or were popularized during the Victorian era.
