Guest Blog: Exclusive Excerpt…With Kissing! By Carrie Lofty

Image
         First off, thanks to RRT for letting me stop by! I’m excited to talk about “A Little More Scandal.” At just $.99… Take a chance! This is an adorable intro to my Christies series of Victorian romances.      It’s one of Pocket’s first original digital releases. You can read more about those fabulous new originals here [ http://pages.simonandschuster.com/pocketstar/a-little-more-scandal ], including an extended excerpt of “A Little More Scandal.”      But there. Aside from the blurb, that’s my sales pitch. On to the kissing! We’re romance readers. Kissing is like oxygen. Kissing is a many-splendored thing. Kissing lifts us up where we belong! (Any fans of Moulin Rouge! in the house?)      Here’s an exclusive excerpt…      William crisscrossed his arms behind her back and her bum, then lifted her straight up from the chair. She gasped against his cheek. Any momentary shock dissipated as she sank more deeply into his embrace.     Catrin bit his lower li

Q & A with Sophie Greyson!

Image
First off, if you have any questions or comments for Sophie, be sure to post in the comments as she's giving away a download of HEAVEN SCENT to one lucky winner.   1. Tell us about your newest release.   Sure! Here is a quick blurb: On her deathbed, Lady Jane Worthington makes her eight-year-old daughter, Tarin, promise her three things: live life as she pleases, do not allow her father to arrange her marriage and, most of all, marry for love. After witnessing her mother's suffering and subsequent death, Tarin is determined to save others from the same fate. And nothing, not her noble status, nor society's belief that women cannot be doctors, will keep her from making Gregory's first female medical college a reality. Rafe Sutherland, long-lost Brahmin rogue turned Texas Ranger, returns home after his father‘s mysterious death, bearing secrets. Rafe’s wildly virile and arrogant persona, as well as his animosity with a college-supporting suit

McKettrick's Pride - Linda Lael Miller Out now! Available at Harlequin or wherever books are sold Blurb: The only wide-open space Rance McKettrick wants to see in his future is his hometown in his rearview mirror. The down-to-earth ex-rancher is determined to make a fresh start with his two young daughters—and leave his heartbreaking loss and family’s successful corporation far behind. He sure doesn’t need Indian Rock’s free-spirited new bookstore owner Echo Wells confusing his choices…and raising memories he’d rather forget. But her straightforward honesty and reluctance to trust is challenging everything Rance thought he knew about himself. And when their irresistible attraction puts their hearts on the line, Rance and Echo must come to grips with who they really are to find a once-in-a-lifetime happiness. Read an excerpt here .  Post a comment to be entered to win and I'll announce the winner around Monday night. US and Canada mailing add

Q & A with Carol A. Spradling!

1. Tell us about your newest release . Shades of Gray is the story of a tormented man who allows himself to be ostracized by the entire town in order to protect someone he loves. 2. Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story? There is a scene in the beginning of the book where Kat, who has been severely beaten, arrives at Gray's home. Her broken and battered body reminds Gray of a similarly horrific time in his life. The tenderness he shows her, while struggling with his own private memories, is very gripping. 3. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? When I mentally rewrote each book I read, I knew there was only one way to get the type of ending I was looking for. I would have to write it myself. 4. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk? I don't know if this qualifies as a quirk, but I tend to facially express the emotions of the characters as I type the scene. 5. What was one of the m

Guest Blogger: Sophie Barnes: A closer look at some of the locations mentioned in Lady Alexandra’s Excellent Adventure

Image
Since most of the plot takes place in Paris, I was able to draw from my own memories of the city – having lived there for two years during the late nineties. The apartment where I stayed at that time, was located in the Passy, not far from Trocadero and with a direct view of the Eiffel Tower through the French doors of my bedroom. The apartment where Alexandra, Ryan and Michael stay during their assignment, was inspired by this place, although I unfortunately had to exclude the Eiffel Tower in order to preserve historical accuracy =) Montmartre is also largely based on memory – I used to love going there on weekends to enjoy the view of the city. During the Regency period, Paris wasn’t as huge as it is today, and Montmartre was still outside the city limits and free from Paris taxes. Wine was made by local nuns there – and Alexandra and Michael do sample a glass or two =) Toward the end of the 19th century, Montmartre became a place for seeking entertainment with singers,
