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.

Siblings and Romance (your brothers have friends *wink*) by Bronwen Evans + Giveaway

I always wanted an older brother when I reached my teens… Why I hear you all ask? Think about. What do older brothers have? They have friends! Your brother’s friend who has smoldering good looks, with a body that makes you drool, and a voice that haunts your dreams, was something definitely missing from my life. I’m one of five girls. No brothers in my family.

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.

Whatcha doing this #MemorialDay Weekend?

DH & I are trying to figure out what to do this MD weekend — usually we stay around home, plant flowers and finish up odds and ends projects around the house *boring* — As I Google about to get ideas of things to do, places to go, people to see I notice there’s a lot of fun stuff to do to kick off the summer season! For example . . .

The Assassins are here! Plus book giveaway!

After meeting my favorite hockey team, the Nashville Predators, I came home and sat in a complete daze. It was amazing to be surrounded by amazing men that love hockey as much as you do, but that wasn’t the reason my series was born. No, it was meeting the most amazing player in hockey, and that’s Shea Weber. He was huge, towering over me with a playoff bear that could make a grown man cry. He was sweet and smiled, and talked to me like I was his friend.

Guest Post: Growing up with Romance by Toni Aleo & SWAG!

Growing up, my mother always read. It used to bother me, I didn’t understand what kept her so entrapped with these novels that had gross looking guys on them. She would tell me that it was the love story that she loved. I could identify with that because I was and still am the biggest hopeless romantic.

Guest Post: High School love, does it last? + $20 EGC Giveaway!

I was on Facebook the other day when someone mentioned that they heard high school romances don’t last. That got me to thinking. My husband and I met when I was sixteen (on the school bus). A long time later he told me that when he first saw me he had the thought, “I want her to be the mother to my kids.” Pretty heavy thinking for a seventeen year old boy.

He’s Just Not That Into You: The Historical Version by Valerie Bowman

You may recall a few years back, a book that caused quite a hub bub. The book was titled, He’s Just Not that Into You. Based on an episode of the wildly popular HBO show, Sex and the City, the book caused such an uproar among the ladies who read it, that a film was soon commissioned. I admit it. I saw the episode of Sex and the City. Then I read the book. Then saw the movie. Yes, I was that into the concept. It was absolutely maddening in its simplicity yet fascinating in its compelling layers at the same time.

A Lid for Every Pot? by Macy Beckett + Giveaway!

Greetings, romance lovers. I’m Macy Beckett, and I have a confession for you: I don’t believe in soul mates. Crazy, right? I’m a romance author!

Guest Post: Inspiration Strikes Back By Cheryl Brooks – Giveaway on her Blog Tour Bonanza

The roots of my inspiration for the Cat Star Chronicles series go all the way back to 1967 and the “This Side of Paradise” episode of Star Trek. Exotic women melted in Captain Kirk’s arms all the time, but this was the only episode in which my favorite character, Mr. Spock, ever fell in love—a side effect of being sprayed in the face with mind-altering spores. Cured of that affliction before the credits rolled, his next chance for romance was in “Amok Time.” With his blood boiling from the Vulcan mating season of Pon Farr, the unemotional Mr. Spock must return to Vulcan to find a mate. Unfortunately, his betrothed wants someone else, and a battle with Kirk cools his [...]

Guest Post: Joanne Kennedy, Cowboy Tough + Giveaway

Finding My Wyoming Home Moving to Wyoming was a lifelong road trip for me. It started on a family vacation when I was eight years old. Like many families in the sixties, my parents believed in long summer road trips. And like most kids subjected to those trips, I spent every single day in the back seat fighting carsickness, occasionally poking my head through the Dramamine haze to ask if we were “there” yet. I had no idea where “there” was, but I hoped it had a swimming pool. That’s about all I remember about that trip—besides a horde of hungry chipmunks at a roadside rest in Wyoming. The little critters were so hungry they’d climb on your lap and [...]

Ruthie’s Reality: Interview with Elise Sax + Giveaway!

Welcome back to Ruthie’s Reality, chickens! Today author Elise Sax agreed to chat with me about her debut novel, An Affair To Dismember, which releases on January 29. If you like Janet Evanovich or are generally a fan of first-person heroines who struggle to keep their act together but nonetheless manage to attract the attention of various hunky men–and let’s face it, the appeal of this particular scenario is difficult to resist–you’ll want to check out this book. Welcome, Elise! Okay, let’s start off with a tough question: the heroine of your Matchmaker Series, Gladie Burger, has been compared to Stephanie Plum — but I can’t help but note the similarities between hapless, disorganized Gladie and the official Elise Sax [...]
