Now the Vhrazian Ambassador to Erth has disappeared and it’s Tryla’s job to find him. Just one small complication, she’s to be partnered with a Vhrazian operative. Tryla doesn’t do well with partners, in fact she doesn’t do well with most living beings, so the likelihood of a successful collaboration with a man from a species she hates is highly unlikely.

Please welcome our latest guest.... TAWNY WEBER If you like your books steamy, then reach for a Tawny Weber book! 1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? My latest Harlequin Blaze release is titled DOES SHE DARE? Its a hot, sexy story that goes like this: When Isabel Santos realizes her love life is as barren as a desert, she creates the ultimate Man Plan…a list of her all time hottest sexual fantasies. Including the one guy who, with just the eight year old memory of his smile, gets her hotter than any she’s actually had sex with –Dante Luciano. Will her plan net her the ultimate fantasy? Or will putting this particular plan into action result in the ultimate heartbreak? She’s willing to find out. 2. What do you consider the hardest part of writing? Oh wow, great question. My first thought was the weight gain from sitting in this chair so much *g*. But really, for me the hardest part of writing is the market itself. Sometimes great story ideas come

An expert cryptographer, he is an excellent operative in breaking codes and is now after a document with important information having to do with the return of Napoleon to power from exile.

Ask Five with...Lauren Dane!!!!

I'm thrilled to have the fabulous Lauren Dane as the Romance Reviews Today Blog guest. Lauren is an author to watch. If you haven't read her...what's stopping you??? 1. Tell us about Wolf Unbound. Wolf Unbound is the third book in the Cascadia Wolves series and it carries on the story of the werewolf mafia I started in Enforcer. It's Tegan's story. She's a werewolf enforcer who's lost her mate some years before but finds love again in an unexpected place with an unexpected person. The war between the werewolf packs is heating up, things are growing dangerous for everyone. 2. How rocky was the road to publication? Did it take you very long to get published? I'm really lucky. My first book Triad was my first sale, to Ellora's Cave back in late 2004. It came out in 2005 and I've been writing regularly ever since. Breaking into New York took a lot longer and that road has been a lot rockier! Lots of rejection, a small sale, more rejection a

Well, perhaps that's a bit of an exaggeration. Her aunt and uncle don't seem in the least surprised that Felicity has such a tiny amount of magical power. But Felicity knows that her shame is about to be revealed to society as a whole. She has stood as Duchess-of-Honor Stonehaven since her parents' tragic deaths, and by rights, today she should become the Duchess in truth. However, Felicity didn't inherit their powers and, with the negligible amount she has, she'll certainly fail her tests and be relegated to the rank of a mere Miss. Terence Blackwell, baronet and shape-shifter, is just outside Prince Albert's rooms when he smells the taint of relic-magic. Shifting to his lion form, Terence scatter
