Love stories are universal. Love stories are powerful.  And so are the women who write them.
 
Love Between the Covers is the fascinating story of the vast, funny, and savvy female community that has built a powerhouse industry sharing love stories.  Romance fiction is sold in 34 languages on six continents, and the genre grosses more than a billion dollars a year — outselling mystery, sci-fi, and fantasy combined.  Yet the millions of voracious women (and sometimes men) who read, write, and love romance novels have remained oddly invisible. Until now.

Forever Yours

 
For Kristen Brock, Tristess County, Oregon, is just a stepping stone. She doesn’t fit in to the small town community, but that doesn’t bother her; she’s not here to make friends. A few years as district attorney will look good on her resume, and then she’ll be able to get any job she wants in a big city law firm. But then she meets Marydale Rae, who inspires feelings Kristen never imagined . . .
 
Marydale didn’t intend to hide her past from Kristen, but the prospect of a friend who doesn’t know she spent time in prison is too tempting to pass up. Add in the kiss they shared, and Marydale never wants Kristen to know the truth. But in a town like Tristess, secrets are impossible to keep. Being together puts both Kristen’s job and Marydale’s parole in jeopardy. But is a chance at forever worth the risk?

Crafting a Book Title with a Title:  How The Virgin and the Viscount Got Its Name

Review: Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh

May Contain Spoilers

Riley and Mercy are the featured couple in Branded by Fire.  Both are dominant and rank high in their packs.  Mercy is a leopard, and Riley is a wolf.  I have to admit that I have a thing for the ShadowDancer wolves.  I just love them.  While I like the DarkRiver leopards, they can’t hold a candle to the wolves, so I’m always happy when the wolves are prominently featured in the stories.
