#FrostOnFriday – Tracy Wolff bares more of Ethan, yum! #TGIF
#Frost on Friday Part 4
Yay! It’s time for another #FrostonFriday! We’ve got one month exactly until Ruined releases and I am soooo excited for you guys to get to meet Ethan and Chloe. They just might be my favorite couple yet (that I’ve written, anyway). So with no further ado, here’s the next sneak peek.
I slam the bucket down on top of my hill a little harder than I intend, and watch in frustration as a crack works its way straight down the middle of all my hard work. Damn it. I guess it’s a good thing I’m pre-law instead of an architecture major.

Monica’s Musings by Monica Murphy, author of Three Broken Promises + Giveaway!
What a year. It was around this time in 2012 that I was in the middle of a binge reading fest that consisted of nothing but new adult books. I devoured them. Loved pretty much every single one of them. Abbi Glines, Nyrae Dawn, Colleen Hoover, Jessica Sorensen…those were the first four NA authors I read and was wowed by. There are more. So many more that I could mention but then this post would turn into nothing but a list. Instead, I’ll just reference you to an excellent Goodreads NA list that you can check and compare to see if you’ve missed any great books. Read more

Learn more about Wanted here:
For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me comes an all-new erotic series of three enigmatic and powerful men, and the striking women who can bring them to their knees.
He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.
Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.
My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.
And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same.
Learn about RUINED here:
He’s the last man Chloe Girard should love . . . but the first she ever could.
Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman’s deepest, darkest fantasy—even mine. And, somehow, I am his.
He stole into my life like a dream. Turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true—especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return.
But dreams don’t last forever, and ours is no exception. Because my nightmares are darker, and my wounds deeper, than I could ever reveal. And as much as Ethan wants to protect me, the secrets we we share will only tear us apart.

Monica’s Musings: Deleted Scenes and Giveaway!
Monica’s Musings: This week, you should be able to find the print version of SECOND CHANCE BOYFRIEND, the second book in the One Week Girlfriend series, available on bookshelves. If you’ve read ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND and are dying to continue with Drew + Fable’s story, I sincerely hope you run out and pick up a copy!
It’s funny to think that I’m coming up on a year since I wrote ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND. It doesn’t seem that long ago when I sat at my desk late at night in December, the story pouring out of me. I was a woman possessed, dealing with the holidays and this story that wouldn’t let me go. More than once I thought, am I doing this story justice? Or is it flat out terrible? I was unsure at times. I pushed myself.
I’m so glad I did. Read more

Guest Post: Where Do Your Stories Come From? by Anita Clenney + Giveaway
If you’re a writer I’m sure you’ve been asked “How do you come up with your ideas?” I’m asked this every time I talk about writing with someone who doesn’t write. They’re amazed that all these plots are swirling around in a writer’s brain.
I can’t imagine not having a plot in my head. Even before I knew I wanted to write—like decades before I knew I wanted to write—I still had plots in my head. As a kid, I thought in scenes. Whatever was going on around me was a springboard for a daydreaming session. Too bad I didn’t connect the dots earlier and realize I needed to tell stories. Read more
Stiletto – The Modern Girls Guide to Being a Lady by Grace Brighton (aka Lauren Layne)
Introduction from the editor:
Hi Stiletto Readers!
Last week we heard from Julie Greene, Stiletto’s expert on flirting, kissing and all things involving a little wink and hair flick.
This week we’ll be hearing from columnist Grace Brighton, who’s all genteel classiness on the outside, ovaries of steel on the inside. Grace’s usual schtick is love & relationships: keeping the spark alive, anniversary gift ideas, etc. Today, however, Grace asked to take on something a little different …
THE MODERN GIRL’S GUIDE TO BEING A LADY
And when I say lady, I’m not talking about the generic term for women that you’ll see written in plastic beneath the little female icon in the triangle skirt you see on the bathroom door at Applebee’s.
No, I’m talking about being a lady in the old-fashioned sense of the word. I’m talking about capturing that elusive quality of Helen Mirren, Kate Middleton, Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman . . . Read more
Monica’s Musings: The Cliffhanger Ending . . . Thoughts?
I never really encountered them in all the many books I’d read (and trust me, I’ve read plenty). I guess they just weren’t that popular, especially in romance fiction, my typical reading genre of choice. But when I stumbled upon all of these amazing New Adult books last year and started reading them one after another, I saw a pattern emerge.
Many of them ended with a cliffhanger. Read more

Ruthie’s Reality: Between the Sheets with Molly O’Keefe + #Giveaway
Welcome back to Ruthie’s Reality! Did you miss me? Of course you did.
I’ve been living the glamorous life of the romance writer, most recently in Iowa, where I attended a family pig roast (as one of two token vegetarians) and glamorously hobnobbed with my relatives. I got to hold a lot of babies, and I noticed that they were all more cheerful than my baby had ever been. What’s up with that? Read more

Introducing Flirt’s Lori Adams, a New Adultaholic
Hi, my name is Lori Adams and I’m a New Adultaholic.
Confession time: I am one of FLIRT’S newest, New Adult authors. I was born in Oklahoma and now live in Southern California with my hubby and two daughters. I wrote my first book—at eight-years-old—about man-eating sharks. I eventually went on to devour romance novels during the eighties and still have an occasional craving for those dashing historical romance heroes. Read more

Ruthie’s Reality: Meet Robin York, Ruthie Knox’s alter ego
Or, okay, maybe that was a bit melodramatic. The truth is, I’m adopting a second pen name—Robin York—under which I’m going to write New Adult romance for Random House.
So why this new thing? Well. Reasons. We’ll start with the easy bit: Why “Robin York”? Read more
Everything You Need To Know about Flirting with Disaster in Seven Random Questions + Giveaway
Today is release day for Flirting with Disaster, the third installment in my Camelot series. Yay!
I feel as though all discussions of Flirting should begin with the phrase “And now for something a little different…” RT Book Reviews agrees: RT made Flirting with Disaster a “Top Pick” for the month of June, and reviewer Morgan Doremus leads her assessment (4.5 stars out of a possible 4.5!) with the declaration, “You have never met a romance hero quite like Sean Owens.”
Indeed, you have not. Read more
