Annie, not just another "Christmas Story"

My brother and I would go to bed at five that evening in order to rush Christmas morning along. We would take turns singing Christmas carols to each other. This would be over with by six. I wanted to jump in his bed and pound him but I wasn't sure if the window for being put on the naughty list was close. So I stay the course on being nice.

If the Viscount Falls (The Duke’s Men #4) by Sabrina...

If the Viscount Falls (The Duke’s Men #4) by Sabrina Jeffries. This is the fourth book in The Duke’s Men series by Sabrina Jeffries and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a stand alone story but reading the other books will add a better understanding, especially the last one. The main character is Dominick Manton, who is now the Viscount Rathmoor after the death of his bother George in book 3. Years ago when he was young he was the happiest man in the world, he was engaged to a Jane Vernon, and they were in love.

A Big Wow for The Wedding Vow

I’m always tickled when my books are reviewed, but this lovely write-up for The Wedding Vow on the Fresh Fiction web site really made my day! “The Wedding Vow is a rollercoaster of emotions: raw and primal, sweet and sexy, crafted into an extremely moving story that keeps you guessing at how it will end until the very end, which is quite unusual for a romance. The Wedding Vow is, in my opinion, a work of genius.”

Writing Erotic Romance – Christmas And Other Holidays

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old and/or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post. Writers work on a fucked up schedule. Right now, I’m writing a story I hope will be released in August 2015. The story is set in the summer. I have the heat cranked in my writing cave and am listening to the Beach Boys. Many of the Christmas stories that are releasing this week were written in July (of this or the previous year). What this means is… We, writers, celebrate Christmas twice–once when we write a Christmas story and again when this story is released. Note: I’ll be focusing on Christmas for this post but many of my insights can be used for other holidays. Christmas is the biggest holiday theme in erotic romance. Valentine’s Day themed stories are usually a tough sell....
