Crafting a Book Title with a Title: How The Virgin and the Viscount Got Its Name
The Virgin and the Viscount was the very first romance manuscript I ever wrote, way back in 2004, twelve years before it would reach the hands of readers.
Back then, it had a working title of, A Proper Scandal.
Back then, it was not connected to another book like it is now. Read more

Hey! How are you all doing today? Firstly, I’d like to say thanks to Manga Maniac Café for giving me the opportunity to stop by and talk about my latest book release.
When a few secondary characters from my Sierra Fox series started speaking to me before I’d even finished Sierra’s adventure, I knew there’d be no getting away from writing a spin-off novel or two. And that’s exactly what HELL OF A RIDE happens to be—a spin-off story in the POV of demon hunter, Lavie Grye.
Lavie is a chatty character. She spoke fast and threw so much info my way that I had to start writing everything down as soon as the ideas started. One of the first things I realized about her tale was that it would be a road trip. Although other places in Australia are mentioned, all five books in Sierra’s series take place somewhere in Sydney. She never actually ventures out of New South Wales because there’s a hell of a lot for her to deal with where she lives. But now that things are somewhat stable in Sydney, Lavie is free to venture out and chase problems going on in other locations. Read more

Historical Road Trip with Elizabeth Moss
In Rebel Bride, Hugh and Susannah travel the dangerous roads of Tudor England together, forced into each other’s company by circumstances. Beautiful and feisty, Susannah has run away from her cruel father in Yorkshire. Finding her in the wild forest, Hugh is determined to escort his willful charge safely to the king’s court.
Fictional journeys like this often work as metaphors for a character’s inward journey towards emotional or spiritual development. For Susannah, this journey to London is about resistance and attraction; for Hugh, it’s a struggle between physical desire and his moral duty to protect this young woman – even from himself!

You see…well, I’ll let him tell you about it.
Hey, ladies! Zach Montgomery here. I don’t know about you, but I am a total adrenaline junkie. Or…at least I used to be. I’m not jumping out of planes any time in the near future but man oh man did I have some great trips doing that sort of thing and more! I have some amazing memories from each and every one of my trips but I’ll give you some highlights – you know, just in case you’re looking for your own adrenaline rush! Read more
Guest Post: 5 Things a Lady Trickster Never Leaves Home Without by Alissa Johnson
I’m delighted to introduce A Talent for Trickery, the first book in my new Victorian-set “Thief-takers” series. Our hero, Private Investigator Owen Renderwell, is on the hunt for a thief and murderer. And he knows just how to catch his man. All he needs is a little help from our heroine, Miss Charlotte Walker-Bales. The daughter of an infamous confidence man, Lottie is in a unique position to offer insight into the mind and motives of a hardened criminal. There’s just one flaw in Owen’s otherwise excellent plan. Lottie hasn’t spoken to him in eight years. She has no interest in working alongside a man of the law, and certainly not the one who betrayed her trust, endangered her family, and broke her heart.
