As a writer, I’ve written both medieval and western historical romances and also thrown in a few romantic suspense novels along the way. All of these novels were standalones.

Alexa Aston’s historical romances use history as a backdrop to place her characters in extraordinary circumstances, where their intense desire for one another grows into the treasured gift of love.
She is the author of The Knights of Honor, a 10-book medieval romance series that takes place in 14th Century England and centers on the de Montfort family. Each romance focuses on the code of chivalry that bound knights of this era.
A native Texan, Alexa lives with her husband in a Dallas suburb, where she eats her fair share of dark chocolate and plots out stories while she walks every morning. She enjoys reading, watching movies, and can’t get enough of Fixer Upper or Game of Thrones. Alexa also writes romantic suspense, western historical, and standalone medieval novels as Lauren Linwood.

By Gina Danna The American Civil War – why would I write a story during this timeframe? All stories written about this time are all just Gone With The Wind in a different style…. The War Between the States – the ‘official’ name for the Civil War of 1861-1865 – is a fascinating and complex… Read More
by Bronwen Evans It’s release day for A LOVE TO REMEMBER, book #7 in my Disgraced Lords series. I had the most fun writing this book, because both the hero and heroine had an aversion to marriage—each for good reason. But as in any good romance something had to change, and as usual it took… Read More

A great many books have been written about time travel. And, in fact, books and movies take us to different eras on a regular basis. But if it was possible to go to another time, which one would you choose? And why? If I had the chance, I would love to go the Elizabethan Court…. Read More
by Amy Jarecki Who doesn’t have a few guilty pleasures? That said, I always ask myself, hey, if it’s pleasurable, then why feel bad about it?
