The Various Forms of Danger

on November 29, 2016

Sweeping in with December snows are two new books that illustrate not only that danger can come in many forms (some quite appealing), but also that what constitutes danger always lies in the eyes of the beholder. New York Times Bestselling Author Sabrina Jeffries explores “the danger of desire” in her novel of the same… Read More

What We Do For Family

on November 21, 2016

“Where do you get your ideas?” It’s a question I get asked all of the time—as do many authors I know.  The answer is varied.  I get a lot of ideas from my research.  Or from a song or a snatch of random conversation.  Or just from out of the ether.    But curious people… Read More

May I have this dance, my lady?

on October 21, 2016

Romance novels set during the Regency period in England are one of the most popular genres. Readers love them, and everything associated with them. The term “regency” refers to the period when King George III was deemed unfit to rule and his son, the Prince of Wales, (known as “Prinny”) ruled as Prince Regent (hence… Read More

The Gift of Love

on December 14, 2015

by Julie LeMense The holidays are many things to many people. For some, they’re a chance to reunite with friends and family. For others, they’re an opportunity to give of ourselves and to receive. I count myself lucky in that I usually get to do both. Yet I also find that I’m very reflective at… Read More

Writing a Book is Like Hiking

on December 8, 2015

by Ally Broadfield We recently embarked on our annual family camping trip, which included two adults, three teens, and two of our four dogs (our one hundred and ten pound Great Pyrenees, and our twenty pound poodle/something cross). We chose to go during the Thanksgiving break because it’s too hot to camp in Texas during… Read More

Psychic Moments & THE MADNESS OF LORD WESTFALL

on September 21, 2015

by Mia Marlowe People often ask why I decided to write a Regency-set series based on characters with psychic abilities. It seems to fly in the face of the delicate, comedy-of-manners style of story readers expect from a Regency romance. After all, a hero like Lord Westfall, who’s spent time in Bedlam, is not exactly… Read More

Readers Make Writing Romance Awesome…

on June 30, 2015

by Bronwen Evans Waving from a very cold and wet New Zealand.  It’s winter here and we have had what we call an unusual cold snap with loads of snow in the South Island. Definitely the kind of weather to stay tucked up inside writing! Or reading! Last week I braved the elements to be… Read More

Regency Beliebers?

on May 29, 2015

By Jenny Holiday Are you a Belieber? Perhaps your tween daughter is? (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, don’t fret: you’re totally normal. Beliebers are obsessive fans of Justin Bieber.) I myself am not a Belieber, but I have fallen under the spell of one or two massive celebrity crushes in my… Read More

Breaking the Rules

on October 8, 2014

by A.S. Fenichel I blame Jane Austen for making the early 1800s so romantic to me. I love the period. I love the rules and I hate the rules. No touching or even being alone together. I love this because when they finally do touch, even if it’s incidental, it’s earth-shattering. Then there is the… Read More
