Meet Kristin Miller
Author of Beauty and the Werewolf
I love writing about fiery, independent heroines, and swoon-worthy heroes. I enjoy fun tropes with exciting twists:
So…food and sex. Much like church and state, I think they’re best kept separate. (Although maybe I’m just eating too much in one sitting?) In my mind, sex is the same as swimming: best done 2-3 hours after a meal. Of course there are exceptions. For instance, my friend told me recently she had mind-blowing sex within an hour of eating Indian takeout – something I would have thought physically impossible, but then you know what they say about chili peppers.
Daredevil Season 2 offers a peek at Elektra and Punisher, as well as more hints at some sort of relationship between Karen and Foggy (how cute are they together?)
Daredevil returns in Spring 2016.
Today we’ve got an excerpt from Tracy Anne Warren’s newest release, Mad About The Man! We hope you enjoy and pick up your copy today!
Suddenly footsteps rang out and there was Monroe, looking even taller and more powerful than she remembered. She abruptly forgot all about briefcases and buy-ins.
If she’d thought he was attractive in tennis clothes, he looked red-hot scrumptious in a bespoke navy blue three-piece suit; the tailoring was just too good for off-the-rack. She might dislike his personality, but she couldn’t fault his dark good looks or his innately masculine style. He was bite-me beautiful with a capital B.
Of course she didn’t let any of her thoughts show as he walked closer. That’s when she took in the full effect of the massive shiner on his face, his left eye and cheekbone a brutal collage of swollen blues and purples that reminded her of a cross between blueberries and raw meat.
I did that, she thought with an inner cringe.
Which meant that he had to be getting revenge. Why else would he have made her his attorney?
Kissing Her Crazy by Kira Archer hit shelves and e-readers today and Kira has stopped by to share the music she wrote to and answer our questions!
About Kissing Her Crazy:
Single mom Lena Oserkowski just wants to relax at the 5-star resort where her brother is getting married. Oh, and figure out how to make one of her businesses successful enough to support her son. Her focus is thrown out of whack when Elliot Debusshere, twin brother of her new sister-in-law, swims to her rescue at the hotel pool.
Elliot is disillusioned with his wealthy, playboy lifestyle and wants nothing more than to bring some meaning and purpose to the charity he runs. When he rescues Lena from a case of heat exhaustion and meets her son Tyler, he has no idea the answer to his problems might have just fallen in his lap. Literally.
Next week the Five Past Midnight anthology releases from Samahin Publishing with novels by Anne Hope, Corrina Lawson, Robyn Bachar, Cassi Carver, and Robin Bielman included! Today we’re happy to share an excerpt from Robyn Bachar’s Blood, Smoke, and Mirrors! We hope you enjoy and pre-order your copy of Five Past Midnight!
The café had a decent amount of customers when we arrived, despite the fact that it was the lull between breakfast and lunch. I set Tybalt up in a booth with a plate full of pancakes and a Chicago Tribune, and then hoped for the best. Squaring my shoulders, I pasted my friendly customer-service smile on my face and began my shift. My section kept me too busy to worry about silly details like the fate of magician/faerie relations throughout the Midwest. As closing approached, we had only three customers left in the café: a young newlywed couple who were regulars seated in my section, and Lex, who’d snuck in at some point and was sitting drinking a cup of coffee over in Maria’s section. She’d left early, of course, and I’d been ignoring him in the hope he’d leave, but he seemed determined to stay. Annoyed, I stopped at his table, coffee carafe in hand.
It’s not enough for some of us to read our books — we have to proclaim our love of reading with what we wear, or drink coffee out of, or carry our stuff in.
Do you have any book-related accessories?
Stephen King says, “An opening line should invite the reader to begin the story. It should say: Listen. Come in here. You want to know about this.”
An opening line can and should define the rest of the book, provide an expectation for the reader that is then fulfilled through the rest of the book (best example? The snark of “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”)
Collected here are some memorable first lines in romance novels, ones that capture the readers’ interest and is a strong indicator of what the rest of the book will be like.
Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible:
Outskirts of Cairo, Egypt, 2 April 1821
Thanks to his mother, Rupert Carsington had hair and eyes as dark as any Egyptian. This did not mean he blended in with the crowd on the bridge. In the first place, he was easily the tallest man there. In the second, both his manner and attire marked him as an Englishman.
