CHRISTI CALDWELL'S NEWEST RELEASE, ALWAYS A ROGUE, FOREVER HER LOVE

Please help me welcome Christi Caldwell back with her newest release, 
Always a Rouge, Forever Her Love.
She's giving away a copy of her book to one lucky commentor!

Miss Juliet Marshville is spitting mad. With one guardian missing, and the other singularly uninterested in her fate, she is at the mercy of her wastrel brother who loses her beloved childhood home to a man known as Sin. Determined to reclaim control of Rosecliff Cottage and her own fate, Juliet arranges a meeting with the notorious rogue and demands the return of her property. 


Jonathan Tidemore, 5th Earl of Sinclair, known to the ton as Sin, is exceptionally lucky in life and at the gaming tables. He has just one problem. Well…four, really. His incorrigible sisters have driven off yet another governess. This time, however, his mother demands he find an appropriate replacement.

When Miss Juliet Marshville boldly demands the return of her precious cottage, he takes advantage of his sudden good fortune and puts an offer to her; turn his sisters into proper English ladies, and he’ll return Rosecliff Cottage to Juliet's possession.

Jonathan comes to appreciate Juliet’s spirit, courage, and clever wit, and decides to claim the fiery beauty as his mistress. Juliet, however, will be mistress for no man. Nor could she ever love a man who callously stole her home in a game of cards. As Jonathan begins to see Juliet as more than a spirited beauty to warm his bed, he realizes she could be a lady he could love the rest of his life, if only he can convince the proud Juliet that he's worthy of her hand and heart.

Add caption
Dear Readers, 

Today I have the amazing Jane Ashford visiting. I know you'll make her feel welcome! 

She's giving away a copy of The Bargain too! 

I Can Be a Greedy Reader

Do you know the moment – when you desperately wish one of your favorite writers could write faster? I just finished The Golden Princess, the latest in S.M. Stirling’s Change Series, and I want the next book now. Must know what happens!

Not that I’d ever get as crazy as Annie in Stephen King’s Misery, who tries to torture a new book, to her specifications, out of a favorite author. I’m well aware that I won’t have the next installment for months and months.

JACKI DELECKI'S NEW AUDIO BOOK, A CODE OF LOVE!

Jacki Delecki's latest audiobook is out, and we get to listen in! She's giving an audiobook of A Code Of Love away too. 

 A CODE OF LOVE, Book 1 in the Code Breakers Series

Threatened by French spies, assassins, and calculating suitors, can Lady Henrietta Harcourt trust the infamous rake, Lord Cordelier Rathbourne, with her carefully guarded family secrets?

Cord's passionate attraction for the indomitable Henrietta hasn't diminished in his four years abroad, but neither has Henrietta's memory of his libertine past.

As England's new Director of Intelligence, Cord faces more peril protecting the Harcourt family of brilliant code breakers than he did as an undercover spy in Napoleonic France. Henrietta's brother, on a clandestine assignment in Paris, has vanished.

In pursuit of the missing brother, Henrietta and Cord become entangled in a web of international intrigue, danger, and white hot passion.

BOOK SPOTLIGHT-A SPY'S HONOR BY CHARLOTTE RUSSELL


Today I’m thrilled to have Charlotte Russell, author of A Spy’s Honor with me in the Blue Rose Writing Room.

Can you tell us how long you have been writing?

I’ve been seriously writing romance for about 10 years, but I’ve been crafting stories in my head ever since I was a child. I always thought it would be too difficult to write those stories down. Then a friend kind of dared me to and I discovered that I was right—it’s really hard to write a novel! But it’s fun and fulfilling too.

What’s one thing you absolutely can’t tolerate during your writing? One thing you can’t write without?

I really prefer a quiet room to write in and I like to be alone while doing so. I am baffled by all these writers who sit in coffeehouses and write thousands of words. That is just something I could never do.

You sound like me!

The Civil War love story – Just another Gone With The Wind?

Gina Danna is here today and she's talking about Civil War Romance! 



The Civil War love story – Just another Gone With The Wind?

           Romance and the Civil War. Is it possible? Or is it nothing more than another telling of Gone With The Wind? And worse, I was told repeatedly no one would buy a Civil War romance. Civil War fiction yes – just look at Jeff Shaara who has several out…
            When I started my writing career, I came to the table (or computer) with two degrees in History (my BA & MA) with several hours done for my PhD, specializing in the American Civil War, medicine to be particular. On top of that, I’m a Civil War reenactor, had been a museum educator at Jefferson Barracks Historic Site (military post 1826-1946) and later a curator at Missouri State Museum.
So with all this knowledge and research abilities, I should write a Civil War novel, right?
