Fictional Friendships…And Real Ones…

BY LYNN CAHOON

ShoeKillsThe best part of writing a series is getting to revisit the same town, book after book. But it’s not just stopping by Diamond Lille’s for dinner or running along the stretch of beach that I love. I adore building the friendships between my character, Jill, and her cronies.

Fabulous Fabio Book Covers

*DON’T MISS THE RAFFLECOPTER GIVEAWAY*

BY LINSEY HALL

I grew up reading the romance novels of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. I’d filch them from my mom and read them in secret long before I had any idea what that shaft business was all about (you probably guessed that it’s a penis – took me a while to figure that one out!). I think there are a lot of readers and writers with a similar story. In middle school, I bought a purse just big enough in which to hide my Jude Deverauxs’ and Nora Roberts’. Tiny purses were in, but I needed a way to sneak my secret habit from algebra to language arts. By the time I was fifteen, I worked in a used bookstore, surrounded by the Technicolor glory of the Fabio book covers.

Chances

BY MICHELE CALLAHAN

white_fire150Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and wondered what the heck happened? Thought to yourself, “How the hell did I end up here?” And where is this horrible here? Too fat? Too old? Too broke? Unaccomplished? Alone? Scared? Angry? Addicted? The list goes on and on. The optimistic six-year-old inside of us that dreamt of princesses, castles and knights riding their noble steeds is like a far-distant fantasy. And when this moment hits us all, and it does find us all, what is it that we really wish was possible?

Dream A Little Dream

BY ELLA QUINN

Madeline's-Christmas-WishDo you have a dream? It doesn’t matter if it’s a job, a trip of a lifetime, or a place you’d like to live. Over thirty years ago, I told my boyfriend, now my husband, that I wanted to retire on a sailboat. He said he did too, and the long, long, journey began.

Five Fun Facts about Online Dating Granny Style

BY KELSEY BROWNING and NANCY NAIGLE

Fit-to-Be-Tied150The second book in The Granny Series, Fit to Be Tied, tackles the topic—and sometimes hilarious pitfalls—of online dating. Which meant Nancy and I had to poke around to find out more about these dating sites.

So today, we want to share a few fun facts about online dating, granny-style! :-)

Where Do I Find Paradise?

BY GEMMA BROCATO

Exposed-to-Passion150Thank you so much for inviting me to visit this blog today. I’m excited to share the top seven places I consider paradise today.

Every body has their own definition of paradise. Ask five random people and you’ll get five very different answers. I checked on Merriam-Webster online for the official definition before I started writing about where I find it. Oh mighty Webster defines it as:

Who Loves a Hardcore Alpha?

BY JULIETTE CROSS

Soulfire150I had a conversation with a friend the other day, debating why independent-minded, strong-willed women crave alpha males. She, being one of these women with quite an affinity for the fictional Christian Grey, said “it’s not that I want to be dominated out in the real world—just in the bedroom.” So I mentally tapped my chin, pondering my own fascination with alpha males.

The Way Magical Things Often Do

BY HEATHER HEYFORD

ChardonnayBook 1 in the Napa Wine Heiresses series, A TASTE OF CHARDONNAY, launched on—lucky OCT 13! It’s been a barrel of fun writing about how Char and her strong-willed sisters find their life’s work—and of course, fall in love with equally strong men along the way.

A Case of Identities

BY STACY FINZ

Going-Home150Thank you for having me on Romance Divas. This is my first blog tour and I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself. I’m an identity thief. I admit it. I steal annoying personality traits, bad habits and funny eccentricities from my friends, family members, even strangers and give them to my fictional characters. Sometimes it gets me into trouble, especially when the characteristic is easily identifiable, like my mother’s propensity to start every sentence with “This is interesting,” even when it’s not (luckily she won’t be reading this, because she’s not a fan of “the Internets”).

Monsters Versus Men

BY MAGGIE MAE GALLAGHER

RupturedThe worlds of urban fantasy and paranormal romance are where I truly found my writing niche. I’m a geek at heart. Most of the books I read and TV shows I watch have paranormal elements, like Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series, and Shannon Butcher’s Sentinels series. When it comes to TV, The Walking Dead, Sleepy Hallow, Haven, and Supernatural are on my DVR list. If it has fangs, fur, artificially intelligent robots, and mystical creatures, I am there.
