SEDUCING MR. KNIGHTLY by Maya Rodale Blurb: He’s the only man she’s ever loved… For ages it seems advice columnist Annabelle Swift has loved Derek Knightly, editor-owner of The London Weekly from a distance. Determined to finally attract her employer’s attention, she seeks advice from her loyal readers—who offer Annabelle myriad suggestions…from lower-cut bodices (success!) and sultry gazes (disaster!) to a surprise midnight rendezvous (wicked!). She’s the only woman he’s never noticed… Derek never really took note of his shy, wallflower lady writer. But suddenly she’s exquisite…and he can’t get Annabelle out of his mind! She must be pursuing someone, but who? For some inexplicable reason, the thought of her with another man makes Knightly insanely jealous. Will Dear Annabelle find her happy ending? But Knightly’s scandalous periodical has been targeted for destruction by a vengeful Lord Marsden, and the beleaguered editor now faces a devastating choice:

Guest Blog: It’s Game On in Rhapsody by Sharon Clare

I want to thank Romance Reviews for welcoming me to their blog once again, this time to talk about my newest release, Rhapsody, a paranormal romance.  Rhapsody was a fun story to write. It will be the first in a series of novellas related to game playing since Finn, the immortal antagonist, loves to play games with humans. Rhapsody, the game of Finn’s choice, is a board game designed to bring the hero and heroine together. It’s not your average board game, but one with magical elements that take the players by surprise.  The heroine Isabelle plans to escape the real world when she takes a tropical vacation. But escape becomes too real when Paradise Resort disappears. To win her freedom, she must break an oath and out-play her opponent in a game of seduction. Her self-control is resolute until her traitorous body decides this is a game she wants to play. Jonathan’s needs are simple: break down Isabelle’s resistance, win the game, and get back to the real world where an

Guest Blogger: Kat Martin on...Two Peas in a Pod (or finding the right match)

Note: Kat is giving away a n aut ographed copy of Against t he Odds. Please post a comment to be ente red.    When I come up with a story idea, one of the most import things to do and sometimes the hardest is to find the right romantic match for the hero or heroine.   It was easier in AGAINST THE ODDS because I got to meet Alex and Sabrina in Against the Sun, where they showed up as friends of Jake Cantrell and Sage Dumont.    I liked both characters right away, but it wasn’t until SUN was well underway that I realized Sabrina and Alex just had to have their own story.   They were both larger than life people and their attraction to each other sizzled through the pages. As AGAINST THE ODDS begins, Sabrina receives an inheritance from her uncle--an abandoned silver mine in the West Texas desert.   Running out of money, Rina is determined to find the mine and make it productive, even if it means putting up with the cocky jet jockey she is determined to dislike bu
