Let’s hear it for the not-so-perfect heroine!

on January 18, 2018

One of my all-time favorite secondary characters is now getting her time to shine! I created Miss Anne Adair for the third book in my Once Upon a Rogue series.  I really loved Anne from the beginning, and what drew me to her was her imperfection. Anne has one leg slightly shorter than the other,… Read More

Julie Johnstone

As a little girl I loved to create fantasy worlds and then give all my friends roles to play. Of course, I was always the heroine! Books have always been an escape for me and brought me so much pleasure, but it didn't occur to me that I could possibly be a writer for a living until I was in a career that was not my passion. One day, I decided I wanted to craft stories like the ones I loved, and with a great leap of faith I quit my day job and decided to try to make my dream come true. I discovered my passion, and I have never looked back. I feel incredibly blessed and fortunate that I have been able to make a career out of sharing the stories that are in my head! I write Scottish Medieval Romance, Regency Romance, and I have even written a Paranormal Romance book. And because I have the best readers in the world, I have hit the USA Today bestseller list several times. You can download my Medieval Romance, CHRISTMAS IN THE SCOT'S ARMS, to try for FREE.

Too Busy to Bother with Almacks

on June 6, 2017

The Most Dangerous Duke in London is my 29th novel. It is the 23rd one set in the long Regency of the early 19th century. And once again, none of my characters go to Almack’s. I don’t know why they never do. It just never comes up. My characters have other things to keep them… Read More

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
