A Menage Even My Mother Could Love? Guest Post by Rosanna Leo

Rosanna Leo is one of my very favorite authors and I am so excited to welcome her back to the blog today with a funny--and very relatable!--post to celebrate the release of her sexy new menage romance, Predator's Trinity . I already have my copy on my Nook ready to go! Rawr! Take it away, Rosanna! * Thanks so much to Jessica for hosting me on my blog tour for Predator’s Trinity , Gemini Island Shifters 6. This is my first menage romance, and I must admit, as proud as I am of my genre and stories, a part of me wondered how this book would be received. Especially by my mother. Oh, come on, fellow romance authors. You know what I’m talking about. When you write risqué books, don’t you sometimes wonder what will happen when your co-workers or boss or Aunt Mildred get their hands on a copy? I know I do. I have every faith in my readers. They’ve proven themselves to be open-minded and curious…and full of good taste. ;) But my mom? What on earth will she say when she figures ou

Midnight Caller: Thrilling Interracial Historical Romance from Haley Whitehall

As much as I love romance, there is nothing I like more than an unusual, well-written historical, so today I am delighted to welcome Haley Whitehall back to the blog to celebrate the re-release of her thrilling nineteenth century romance, Midnight Caller.  * I’d like to thank Jessica for inviting me to her blog to celebrate the re-release of Midnight Caller . The first book in the Moonlight Romance series, it was also the first romance I’d ever written. I re-edited it, lengthened it, and made it better. Set in Louisville, Kentucky after the Civil War, the town thrives on river traffic. I think many people have a romanticized view of steamboats. Mark Twain made steamboats popular – there’s even a Riverboat ride in Disneyland. People can also take riverboat tours in the U.S. South. That is actually toward the top of my bucket list. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Show Boat is one of my favorite musicals. However, I think viewers get so wrapped up in the lives of and

Warm Up With Daisy Banks' New Victorian Romance, Christmas Carols

Christmas in August? You guys must think I'm crazy, but bear with me here. Today I have the privilege of hosting my Liquid Silver pub sister, Daisy Banks, with an excerpt from her new Victorian Holiday Romance, Christmas Carols. I think it sounds like just the thing to keep the chill at bay this holiday season (or on particularly cloudy August days, for that matter), so grab a mug of hot chocolate and settle down to the latest lovely offering from the great Daisy Banks. Copyright:  almoond / 123RF Stock Photo Thank you, Jessica, for your kind offer to help me celebrate the release of my new book Christmas Carols , published by Liquid Silver Books on the 10th of August.       I know readers might think it a little odd to be thinking about Christmas in August but in Victorian England, where my story is set, people were used to starting their Christmas preparations early. One of the things I love about this era is the images of snowy winters found in so many paintings and sto

Stolen Petals and Blended Tea: Katherine McIntyre on Fantasy, Fairytales, and Her Latest Steampunk Adventure

One of the things I've enjoyed most about my first year as an author has been meeting new friends with similar interests, whether that's writing, baking, tea-drinking, coffee-roasting, massage therapy, or in the case of Katherine McIntyre, all of the above! Katherine is a new to me author whose body of work includes fantasy, romance, steampunk, and young adult novels that sound so amazing to me that I'm surprised I haven't already read them all. I am thrilled to welcome Katherine to the blog today to talk about her life as modern day Renaissance woman and her latest steampunk adventure, Stolen Petals. What are you drinking? At the moment, I actually happen to be drinking one of my blends iced. It’s a panfired green tea with lemon peel and lavender. I’m a bit of a lavender junkie and this is proving to be a phenomenal thirst quencher! You’ve blended tea and your website even has special tea blends for each of your books--how awesome! I love drinking tea, but I
