I love friends-to-lovers romances. They’re some of my favorites. That’s probably why I still sit down and watch movies like Some Kind of Wonderful or When Harry Met Sally whenever they come on T.V. even though I already have the dialogue memorized.
There’s something about the hero and heroine starting out as friends that seems to add a deeper layer to the romance, because they already have so …

Interview with Lucie LeBieu
by Elle James

Male Reporter: Do you have time to answer a few questions, Ms. LeBieu?
Lucie: (settling onto a bar stool) If you make it fast and not too personal.
Reporter: As the granddaughter of the infamous Madam LeBieu, how much hands-on experience do you have with the art of Voodoo?

The best thing about children…
…is that they haven’t yet been told there is stuff they can’t do.
At least mine haven’t.
So when I asked my daughter (4) the other day what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told me with that trademark don’t-you-remember look on her face: “A pirate, of course.” Ah, of course. Silly me.
And when I asked my son (7), he shot me an almost identical look (genes are scary) and said: ”Rock star, remember?”
For me, it was always a mermaid.
What was …
Today we’re happy to welcome Amara Royce on Book Lovers Inc. Her new historical romance, Never Too Late , was released last week. Let’s give a warm welcome to Amara! And don’t forget you can win a copy of her book!
Thank you so much to Book Lovers, Inc. for having me here! I’m very excited that Never Too Late is now “out in the wild.” It is my great pleasure to introduce you to the heroine of Never Too Late, Mrs. Honoria Duchamp, and to explain how she came into existence.
I am a ravenous reader of historical romances, and I noticed a few years ago that older heroines are rather rare in the genre. In fact, “older” in a Regency or Victorian tends to be a woman’s late twenties, when she has been out on the “marriage mart” for a few seasons and is slipping toward …

Lori stops by today to answer some questions and as always don’t forget to check at the end of the post for our giveaway details
Q: How did you come up with the idea for your book?
A: No idea. The ideas are just… there. I’m so amazed by authors who can teach this stuff, because it’s impossible for me. I’ll be minding my own business (often working on a different book) and bam! I get hid upside the head with characters who want on …
The winner of our We Love Your Comments Giveaway for April is … Sandy who commented on our post: Romance and Me: The Horror of the Episode Novels:
I’ve picked up a couple of e-books before and read them before I realized they were the first in a serial–very frustrating. I’m a fan of Beth Kery, but I haven’t read her serialized books yet. And its not so much the money to me (a little, but not a lot), but the having to wait. I will read a book in one sitting and very rarely will I be able to stop until I’m finished (good grief, I read Sherrilyn Kenyon’s ACHERON throughout the night when it first came out–it was JUST THAT GOOD). I guess I’m just impatient and have to know NOW what is going to happen–how are they going to resolve this issue, will the hero realize what a turd he’s …

How could she?
Allison Ralston has made a big mess of everything. …

Rebecca: Thanks so much for having me here today! Let’s see … I live in Brooklyn, New York with my husband and our two little boys. I was a teacher for many years before I started writing. People often describe my books as “not your typical romance.” They have lots of intense love and sex scenes and they always have a …
What we all wouldn’t give to work on a tropical island, or even just to fly there for a few days to unwind and soak up the sun… *sighs* But if you can’t do that right now, do the next best thing: grab a copy of Wife in Name Only, the freshly released debut novel of contemporary romance author Hayson Manning and a glass of chilled margarita and escape to this faraway paradise. But before you do that, join us as Hayson stops by to talk a bit about her novel and its connection to dream jobs… and of course you could even win a copy of Wife in Name Only!
When I was writing Wife in Name Only, I thought Zoe’s job of running a boutique honeymoon resort on a small island in Tonga was a dream job! Living on a Pacific …
