Last week went by in a whirlwind. I was recovering from the Romantic Times Convention, and when I say recovering, what I really mean is “trying to catch up on as much sleep as possible.” Romantic Times is fun, social, and energizing, but I always come home feeling like I need to sleep for an entire week to feel normal again, and sometimes I have to do just that.
But I wouldn’t want you to think that’s all I did last week. Oh, no. I was quite productive as well!
Last Week’s Accomplishments:
I’m thrilled to be hosting one of my favorite authors (and one of my favorite people, truth be told), the lovely and fabulously talented Fiona Jayde. Fiona’s new book, Night Haven, releases this Tuesday, September 21 at Samhain Publishing.
Here’s a quick blurb for your reading pleasure, and then I’m going to let Fiona take over. Share your thoughts on paranormal romance for a chance to win a $10 Amazon gift certificate!

Today I have the pleasure of welcoming author Kaily Hart to my blog, as she stops by on her virtual book tour to talk to us about how she feels about the erotic romance label. After her guest post, you’ll find a blurb and excerpt of her book, Picture This, which is now available at Ellora’s Cave.
Be sure to leave a comment for Kaily, as she’s giving away a goody tower to one lucky commenter who participates in the discussion during her blog tour!
Now without further ado, I’ll turn things over to Kaily.

Today I have the pleasure of welcoming author Madelyn Ford to my blog, as she stops by on her virtual book tour to talk to us about the appeal of angels in romantic fiction. After her guest post, you’ll find a blurb and excerpt of her latest book, MY AVENGING ANGEL, which is now available at Samhain Publishing.
Be sure to leave a comment for Madelyn, as she’s giving away a $15 Amazon Gift Certificate to one lucky commenter who participates in the discussion during her blog tour!
Now without further ado, I’ll turn things over to Madelyn.

Some of you may have noticed the new website layout I revealed just before leaving for RT. It was designed by my fabulously talented friend, Fiona Jayde, and I was thrilled with it. Unfortunately, only a week after it went live, it just… disappeared.
I wish I was being melodramatic. I’m not. My service provider has no explanation for what happened. One day the WordPress database was there, and the next, it wasn’t. Apparently someone deleted the database, but it wasn’t me, and it wasn’t Fiona, which doesn’t leave anyone else who could have done it. … Read More »
Today’s Snippet Saturday theme is “Favorite Intimate Moments.” One of the things I love about participating in Snippet Saturday is seeing how different authors interpret each theme. (Make sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post to see what other authors had to offer today.) As for me, I had a hard time deciding, but finally ended up choosing a scene from ALL THE KING’S MEN
. Kirel and Nalina remain my favorite couple of all those I’ve written over the years.
This is a tender, sexy scene… but not in the traditional sense. Enjoy!
I just returned from the Romantic Times Convention. For those of you who don’t know, this is one of the largest gatherings of romance authors and romance readers. It’s an annual conference, and it takes place in a different city each year. This year, it was held in Columbus, Ohio.
I’m going to skip over my horrid travel experience and just say that the conference was wonderful!
I presented on three panels this year, and they all went very well. By far the workshop I gave alongside Mechele Armstrong, Samantha Kane, Trista Ann Michaels and Liddy … Read More »
And the winner is…
