Interview with Eve Devon + Giveaway

Stella: Hi Eve, welcome to Book Lovers Inc! Can you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Eve: Hi Stella, thanks so much for having me here today. Let’s see, I live in leafy Surrey in the UK with my very own hero Hubby. I feel most like “me” when I’m creating stories and still have to pinch myself that I get to call this my job. I love Castle, Sherlock, The Big Bang Theory and all things Agatha Christie. I’m a bit suspicious about exercise! Oh, and I’m really bad at singing (we’re talking dogs howling, bad). Why is it that people who can’t sing, love to?

Stella: Oh I LOVE those shows as well! 😀 Are you a planner or pantser? Can you tell us a bit about your writing process? How do your novels come to life?

Eve: I think I’m a little of both. I’ve learnt over the …

Once upon a time…

A duke fell in love

Gowan Stoughton of Craigievar, Duke of Kinross, values order and self-control above all else. So when he meets a lady as serene as she is beautiful, he promptly asks for her hand in marriage.

With a lady

Edie—whose passionate temperament is the opposite of serene—had such a high fever at her own debut ball that she didn’t notice anyone, not even the notoriously elusive Duke of Kinross. When her father accepts his offer… she panics.

And when their marriage night isn’t all it could be, she pretends.

In a tower.

But Edie’s inability to hide her …

Romance and Me: My Favourite Moment in a Romance

Hi Everyone!

I’m sure with such a title I caught your attention and you are on pins and needles to learn what is that thing/moment/detail that I love the most in romances, the one thing I am looking forward to when opening the book 😉

I’ll tell you that while I really enjoy seeing how the author writes that first scene when the hero and heroine finally meet, it’s not that. (Btw if you want to read a truly memorable and unforgettable first-meeting-scene check out the one between Ali and Luke in Jill Shalvis’ It Had to Be You). But back to our topic.

It’s not even the first kiss. Sure once I meet the hero and heroine and see the sparks flying and how potent their chemistry is I can’t wait for them to finally lock lips and see all that …

Blurb:

Kissing her best friend’s brother never felt so right…

Sela Sullivan is resolved to be the best maid of honor ever, even if it means tolerating the best man. Insufferable, too-handsome Luke Watters is not only the guy who humiliated her at a kissing booth in high school, but he also happens to be her best friend’s older brother. Positive he’s the same arrogant jock, Sela vows to focus on her duties and steer clear of the frustrating—and frustratingly tempting—Luke.

As a world-renowned extreme-sports photographer, Luke is used to undertaking life-risking adventures. But risking his heart for the beautiful Sela Sullivan, who clearly still hates him for …

Romance and Me: Discrimination Based on Name

Hi Everyone!

You all know that I’m an equal opportunity reader when it comes to romance: I read anything from contemporary to historical, erotic to inspirational, sci-fi to paranormal. I keep an open mind and I’m always up to expand my reading horizons by experimenting with different sub-genres. So with that disclaimer out of the way I can make my confession: despite my tolerant and open-minded reader beliefs I sometimes discriminate books/stories/characters based on names.

And I don’t mean the cutesy and at times over the top names of the town/place the story is set in, like a contemporary romance being set in the small town of Love, or Promise Harbor or a historical romance taking place in Harmony Creek or Temperance Manor. No, those just receive an eyebrow twitch, but they don’t disturb me too much to make me stop reading the book.

Guest post by Christine S. Feldman + Giveaway

Please give a warm welcome to Christine S. Feldman, who stops by Book Lovers Inc. to celebrate the release of Coming Home, her debut romance novel! Christine is a fellow friends-to-lovers fan, just like myself and here she talks about why she enjoys reading and writing this trope so much. Join us and if you answer Christine’s question at the end you could even win an Amazon gift card! 😉 Christine, take it away!

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 much …

The Lonely Winner Post

Hey Everyone!

You all know what a baking fanatic I am, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that after a macaron course last week (seriously I made so much tiny bright yellow, peach and rose coloured macarons that the family and friends have been eating them for a week and there are still some left!), I signed up to follow another set of classes taught by professional pastry chefs. The first class was yesterday and we learned how to make pain au chocolat, croissant, stollen, blundel and other breakfast pastries (like the ones pictured on the right). So you can imagine how happy that made the family that for this morning they could have their pick from a whole big box of treats I did yesterday 😀 lol

This week we only have 1 lonely winner to announce, and that is

the lucky winner of an ebook copy of any of the …

Interview with Lucie LeBieu
by Elle James

At the Raccoon Saloon, Lucie is working as a waitress in a bar full of rowdy Cajuns.

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?

Lucie: Gran LeBieu has been after me to learn the trade, but …
