Warm up with a Romance

Thrill ride by Julie Ann Walker — Ex-navy SEAL Rock Babineaux is as Cajun as they come---spicy, sexy, and more than a bit wicked. But would he actually betray his country? Even his friends on the special-ops Black Knights team aren't sure they can trust him. Now the target of a massive manhunt, Rock knows the only way to protect the team---especially his partner, Vanessa---is to run...

Coming undone by Lauren Dane — More than friends, Brody and Elise discover in each other what they need--wild, physical passion without commitment. But it’ll take a shadow from Elise’s past to make them look beyond what they need to what they truly desire.

Janet Dailey, 1944-2013

Prolific romance author Janet Dailey has died at the age of 69. Her books were warm, all American romances which appealed to a large audience, selling as many as 300 million copies. Her latest book is Merry Christmas, Cowboy.

While her books did not receive critical acclaim, Ms. Dailey preferred to listen to the opinions of her readers and was quoted as saying, “One of the things that to me is the biggest compliment any writer can get is hearing from the ones who say, ‘I used to think reading was boring until I picked up one of your books.’ That’s great, because I know that if they read my books they’re going to read other books; they’re going to go back to reading again.”

Christmas Romances

Romance authors love to pen novels and stories set in and around Christmas and we love to read them. This year there is a bumper crop of these seasonal tales, so grab your hot cocoa and enjoy.

New Adult Genre

The books in the New Adult Genre are designed to interest twenty-somethings. The main character will often be leaving home for the first time, going to college, or starting on their first steady job. While mostly written by twenty-somethings for twenty-somethings, these books do have crossover appeal for romance readers--even those who have left their twenties behind them.
