What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? I have a novella in the Harlequin NEXT Anthology “Christmas Presence: Three Tales of Love.” My novella is “Christmas Presence,” and it’s about a young widow who wants to boycott the holidays because her husband died in a car accident the day after Christmas last year. Problem is, her husband’s ghost won’t let her. Before she knows it, she has a Christmas tree, she’s baking cookies, and she’s got a job at a wrapping booth in the mall, where she meets the man who may hold the key to her Christmas Future. Do you like writing Christmas themed stories? This is actually the first one I’ve written, and I absolutely loved it. It practically wrote itself. I think I outlined it in about three hours. But Christmas is my favorite time of year, so it made it easy. How do you stay motivated? Oh, those big checks I keep getting… snort! But seriously, it’s just the whole process of creating something (or someone) didn’t exist be

When he opens the door, he’s surprised; first, because he recognizes Officer Madison Langley, and secondly, because she’s aiming a gun at his chest. The next thing he’s aware of, Alerac is chained in a basement, and Madison - his mate - tells him that men will be arriving shortly to take him to a lab. For years, Madison has hated werewolves because they killed her parents, and finally she is doing something with that vengeance. But why does she feel such a pull to a creature she has always considered a monster? Alerac and Madison are both in for a few surprises in CAGED WOLF. Though this is the third of Ms. Ede

Spotlight Review--AN AFFAIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS by Eloisa James

Image
AN AFFAIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS - Eloisa James Avon ISBN: 978-0-06-124554-1 November 2007 Historical Romance Georgian England, April 1783 It began in Paris four years ago. Miss Perdita Selby, informally called Poppy, fell in love with the Duke of Fletcher, and Fletch with Poppy. This was fortunate, for Poppy's mother, Lady Flora, would not countenance a lesser rank as a son-in-law. Her whole life, it seems, has been devoted to shaping her daughter into a proper duchess. What is less fortunate is her indoctrination of her daughter concerning the evils of men and the marriage bed in particular. Poppy was so firmly conditioned that even today, she cannot respond to her husband's lovemaking no matter the care and attention he lavishes upon her inert body. It's driven him crazy. The devoted young man of their early days has changed. His outward beauty remains -- it's even enhanced -- but the sweetness is gone. Poppy and Fletch are now in despair; he through his frustration o

Nicholas Montford, the exiled Earl of Ashton, has been masquerading as a highwayman since returning to England to reclaim his family lands. As the Raven, he takes revenge upon the Puritans who thrived while his family suffered.

Meeting Jillian for the first time, an instantaneous lust for her engulfs Alan, making him realize it’s going to be tough to maintain impartiality. Not that Jillian is the prime suspect, but you never can be too sure. Living in close quarters also makes it hard to keep their distance from each other, especially when the attraction is mutual. Jillian loves her job and loves having people around her. Owning a house in Vancouver near the studio is convenient, while Jillian stringently lays down rules, which include no personal relationships among the boarders. But her new

Today we have Rita Thedford , a new to me author that I know I'm going to love reading. The title of her latest book caught my eye. I'm sure it will yours! PS...check down below about a giveaway! Sit back and meet Rita: 1. What is the title of your latest release and what's it about? My latest release is Hot Night at the Blue Bug Saloon with The Wild Rose Press. It's the first installment for their Wayback Texas Series with the Yellow Rose line of contemporary westerns. Blue Bug tells the story of sexy, sassy Gina Ballew who is just a tad intimidating to the fellas in this small Texas town. Yeah, she's been burned before, has sworn off men completely. That is until she meets Nash Logan. Nash, a bull rider and all around cowboy, is only in town for the weekly rodeo. Nope, he doesn't do one night stands but when luscious Gina saunters up to him at The Blue Bug Saloon, he knows he's a goner. 2. How do you come up with ideas for your stories? Umm...g

Site Update

In case you didn't catch Terrie's letter: A note to our readers. When you visit Romance Reviews Today you will notice the new look, what you may also notice is that most of the content (previous reviews, interviews, spotlights) are missing. If you weren’t aware of it, Romance Reviews Today was suspended when the host sever I have been with for seven years decided that RRTErotic violated their terms of service. Rather than just taking RRTErotic down they took down both of the sites without giving me an opportunity to take any corrective measures they might require, or even to ensure the integrity and viability of the sites. When Romance Reviews Today was moved to a new server along with RRTErotic they neglected to tell me that they were the same server as my previous server with a different name. So, after uploading RRT, I uploaded RRTE. After accepting the transfer of the domain RRTErotic they decided the domain name alone violated their terms of service, and once again w

Today we are thrilled to have the fabulous (and very nice!) Lucy Monroe. She'll pop in and answer your questions today, so...ask away! 1. Tell us about your latest releases. [Lucy Monroe] The second book in my The Goddard Project series from Brava came out two days ago. DEAL WITH THIS is a very sexy The Geek Squad meets James Bond kind of story. Alan and Jillian were both introduced in earlier books and lots of readers asked for their stories - so I was really happy when I realized they were just right for each other. :) The first book in my Sunshine Springs duo from Harlequin Presents is out in December. THE RANCHER'S RULES is a best friends to lover story with a couple of fun twists. Grant's got some pretty interesting rules and one of them is that his best friend is off limits. Zoe never has done very well living her life by other people's standards and she's not about to start now. She's got a few tricks up her sleeve that keep Gran

Spotlight Review: The Courtesan's Daughter by Claudia Dain

THE COURTESAN'S DAUGHTER - Claudia Dain Berkley Sensation Trade Paperback ISBN: 978-0-425-21720-7 October 2007 Historical Romance London, 1808 It's not easy being the daughter of a courtesan, not even when one is the legitimate daughter of the Countess of Dalby and the late earl. Twenty years don't seem to be enough to wipe away memories of the most beautiful, most sought after courtesan of her day. Not when Sophia is still youthful and a presence among the ton. Even though many doors are closed to her, everyone is fascinated by her. Lady Caroline, Sophia's daughter, knows better than to expect to dance at Almack's; she rather doubts she'll ever receive a decent proposal, unless it be from a rich merchant or other. But Caro forgets her mother is a master at getting her way...or should we say mistress. Sophia buys up the vowels of the Earl of Ashton and concludes a marriage contract between him and Caroline. But Caroline learns of the financial arrangement an

NOT THE MARRYING KIND - Hailey North Avon Books ISBN: 978-0-06-058247-0 ISBN: 10-0-06-058247-2 November 2007 Contemporary Romance New York; Los Angeles, California; Arkansas - Present Day Having escaped from small town life in Arkansas, Harriet P. Smith is now a successful artist living in New York City. Yet, for all her success, or maybe because of it, Harriet still feels like an outsider. Close to the holidays, Harriet and her fifteen-year-old son find themselves trekking to Arkansas, albeit reluctantly, to be with her dead husband’s mother as she recovers from knee surgery. But going back home stirs up a lot of memories for Harriet, namely a secret that she has been keeping -- who her son’s biological father really is. Jake Porter always lived his life not looking back. This outlook has always helped him, considering that he grew up as a military brat, having to move often and rarely leaving roots behind. There is one place, though, that Jake does look back on -- or one pers

1. Tell us about A Christmas to Remember. A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER is a redemption story with an amnesia element. I've always wanted to write an amnesia story but it's hard to take that time-aged theme and give it a fresh twist. ACTR is the third character-related story that began with MAN WITH A PAST (May 2006) and HIS PERFECT WOMAN (June 2007). I don't know of a single person who hasn't made a mistake and had to live with the consequences. This story is about that---and a lot more. Christmas is the season of forgiveness and love and ACTR reflects that. Could you give the person who *ruined* your life a second chance? Could you forgive them? And what if after doing so, you find out it's all been a lie? My heroine has some tough decisions ahead of her. For a peek inside A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER, please go to my website www.kaystockham.com and view the book video. I also have a great Launch Party Scavenger Hunt through the pages of ACTR going on now. I hope all

What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? My November 2007 release, Expecting His Royal Baby, is book 5 in the fabulous Niroli series. Set in the tiny Mediterranean kingdom of Niroli my hero Nico is torn between duty and love as the race to find the heir to the throne of Niroli gathers pace. Nico is a self made man, but he is also a member of the richest royal family in the world - a family united by blood and passion, torn apart by deceit and desire. My heroine, Carrie Evans is an unlikely heroine, who proves during the course of the book to have a big heart and enough courage to take on both Nico and the kingdom of Niroli, if that is what it takes to protect her unborn child. How do you come up with ideas for your stories? There are always ideas buzzing in my head- the other day I heard an old Motown classic I used to love, and from that song sprang a whole story fully formed. I can’t wait to write it down.
