December’s Author Crush: Jill Shalvis Masters the Art of Chemistry

in Romance by

It’s not often that I find a new contemporary romance author who blows me away with the very first book. But that’s exactly what happened when I bought my first Jill Shalvis novel three years ago. The story was Head Over Heels, the third book in Jill Shalvis’ insanely popular Lucky Harbor series. From the first page, I knew it was special — the main character was spunky and fun, and her love interest was brooding and hot. More importantly, they had chemistry. Banter and sweet moments and so much heat that I had to take breaks to fan myself. It’s an elusive concept, true chemistry between characters, and so many authors get it so wrong. But Shalvis isn’t one of them,…

Royalty, Fantasy and a Christmas Romance are Part of Our Kindle To-Be Read List!

in Romance by

Most readers I know have an alarming to-be-read (TBR) pile. Mine is mostly on my Kindle, partly because I vowed that I would stop buying paperback romance novels at the grocery store (yeah, right) and partly because I just can’t resist an Amazon bargain. Any time I see an e-book on sale, I snap it up, adding it to my ever-growing – and never-ending – list of books that I swear I will read someday. Honestly, I both love and loathe my TBR pile. It’s like a warm and pleasant albatross around my neck, weighing me down while at the same time filling me with constant comfort and happiness. But I love that no matter what, I always have a book…

November’s Author Crush: There is No Author Quite like Lisa Kleypas

in Romance by

The other day, I got a text from a friend that read: “I need a good new romance author to read. Who do you recommend? They have to be Lisa Kleypas-like.” I wracked my brain for hours until I finally had to admit the truth: there is no one else quite like Lisa Kleypas. With her perfect blend of humor, romance and heartfelt emotion, Kleypas is an entity in and of herself. If I could make a shrine to her writing without seeming like a total lunatic, I would. I first fell for her historical romances with the Wallflower series, and then I was swept away by her modern Travis family saga. Now I’m a true devotee, willing to shell out…

in Romance by

There’s nothing like reading a wonderful book that keeps you up all night, fills you with warm fuzzies, or even makes you shed a tear or two.

There’s not much I wouldn’t do to get a sequel to my favorite novels. These are the stories that consume my thoughts, that I read again…

October’s Author Crush: Jamie McGuire Writes the Ultimate Bad Boy

in Fiction by

Every once in a while you stumble across one of those book heroes who just make you melt. They might be an alpha guy, a sensitive jock, or the hipster boy who likes to write poetry about sunsets. It doesn’t matter; they’re so sexy that you’re ready to crawl into the pages of the book to make out with this fictional character. For me, that weakness is all about bad boys with a secret heart of gold. And no bad boy is quite as hot, or as melt-worthy, as Travis Maddox.
