#WildWednesday weekly snippet from Molly O’Keefe’s Wild Child
Happy Hump Day! Nothing to help you get through the week like a snippet from favorite author Molly O’Keefe – enjoy!
So, there’s a scene in Wild Child that has already gotten some attention from reviewers for it’s heat. And while Wild Child is hotter than anything else I’ve written and I intended it to be – The Bathtub Scene managed to surprise even me. As I was writing it! So, for this #wildwednesday I give you the lead up to the THE BATHTUB SCENE… Jackson and Monica have had a big heart to heart and Monica had explained some of her baggage to him, all of her reasons for not being able to be in any kind of relationship with him and he responds by drawing her a bath.

Guest Post: With a Little Help from my Friends by Maggie McGinnis
We’re only twelve (12! Yippee!) days away from the official release of Accidental Cowgirl, and I have to be honest.
My secondary characters are a little jealous about all the attention Kyla and Decker are getting. Maybe a lot jealous. Jess and Hayley claim they’re the whole reason this story even started, what with them tricking Kyla into this dude ranch vacation, and they think they deserve a little shout-out. Since they’re sort of right (and since I really need them to cooperate for the next two books), I thought I’d give them the attention for today.
The Barbie Evolution . . . by Molly O’Keefe
MO: When my daughter was born two and a half years after my son, she was born into a world of robots and fire trucks. And because she was the second child and the second child is always slighted (I say this with authority as a second child who was slighted and as a mom who has slighted her second child) this didn’t change until she was three.

Guest Post: The Trouble with Love Triangles by Marquita Valentine + $50 EGC Giveaway!
Love Triangles, Trapezoids, or Squares? Okay, all kidding and geometric shapes aside, many a successful book has been blessed or plagued with love triangles—Bella, Edward , and Jacob anyone?
When done right, a true love triangle can up the stakes and have me biting my nails over who the heroine (and sometimes the hero) should be with. Just when I’m all Team Hero 1, then Hero 2 does something so sweet that I forget Hero 1’s name. *grins* Read more
Guest Post: Finding the Perfect Hero . . . in a Cat By Elf Ahearn + Giveaway
“Regency romance with a Gothic twist.”
As a kid I was a horse – usually a stallion—with a coat of either black or dapple gray. I thundered around the house on my hands and knees at a full gallop, leaping over bolster cushions like the finest jumpers at the National Horse Show. So when I wrote my first romance novel, A Rogue in Sheep’s Clothing, I used my experience as a dapple gray to create the character of Manifesto, a racer who helps the heroine escape a boatload of trouble.

Guest Post: Regency Romance by Ella Quinn
In the Regency World, we tend to focus a lot on heroes. Rakes, otherwise tortured souls, ranging from the results of bad parenting, to war injuries. And I do like to torture, um, tortured heroes. Tight pantaloons, a well tied cravat, but what about the ladies? I mean after all, if you have a fantastic hero you must also have an equally fantastic heroine. Some people think that is more difficult for an historic woman to be strong, like a contemporary one. I disagree.
There are historical accounts of ladies running estates, think large companies. They were involved in politics and influenced votes, even when they didn’t have the right to vote. Ladies of the time, were many times more educated than many of our contemporaries, piano, voice, literature, art, French and Italian, were the minimum requirements, and they got to ride horses and drive carriages; all while wearing awesome clothes.

#WildWednesday – more from Molly O’Keefe #FREE Snippets from Wild Child
This week’s snippet is the first kiss between Monica and Jackson. I don’t think you need much set up for this. Monica has a very complicated history with men and sex and hasn’t had intimacy of any kind for years because of it. Jackson however, slips past her guard and she decides to trust him.
She put a hand against his chest, over the pale blue shirt that made his eyes look like the sky on a hot August day. Beneath the cotton she felt the warmth of his skin, the tensile strength of his muscles, and beneath that, the heavy pounding of his heart. Read more
Guest Post: A Gypsy Noblewoman, Collette Cameron
The heroine in The Viscount’s Vow, Evangeline (Vangie) Caruthers, is a bit unusual for a Regency romance. Though she’s the daughter of a baronet, she’s also part Romani; a gypsy princess in fact.
I thought I’d share some of the interesting Romani culture tidbits I came across while doing my research. These were true in 1814, the year The Viscount’s Vow is set in.

Routine? I don’t need no routine by Sharon Cullen
As I’m typing this, the Cullen kidlets are getting ready to go back to school. I think I’m more upset by the end of summer than they are. Mainly because I don’t like routine.
Even though I’m not a big fan of the heat, summer is my most favorite time of the year because of the lack of routine. There’s no set time to get up in the morning. No set time to go to bed. I love that! Read more

Ah, summer love.
Is there anything sweeter? There’s something about long, sun-drenched days and romantic star-filled nights that is conducive to romance. The weather helps, of course. You’re more likely to be out and about—strolling on the boardwalk, dining al fresco, or playing a sport—during this season. Plus, in summer, everyone looks like they’re in love with flushed, dewy skin and clothing that leaves little to the imagination. Read more

The Making of SINS OF INNOCENCE By Jean Stone
The year was 1968, a turbulent, confusing year of assassinations, flower power, Vietnam. The times indeed, were changing, but one thing remained constant: love.
In 1968, when a teenage girl got pregnant her choices were limited. She could quickly get married (and hope no one could do the math), search for a back-alley abortionist, or she could have her baby in secret and “give it up” for adoption. Read more

Goofy, Awkward, and Still Sexy! by Cassie Mae #Flirt
What makes a hero, well, a hero? In Romance I’m often smothered by big muscles, tattoos, nice abs, and huge… well… ahem, everything. And hello! Those are all great (I drool thinking about those sexy covers!) but every once in a while, I want the guy who’s cocky and self-conscious. I want the goofy, awkward dude who looks good in a tight shirt, but won’t let you see what’s underneath. I want to read and write about all the normally unsexy things and how incredibly sexy they really are.
Let me introduce you to Chase. Read more
