A(r)morous men, aka You’ve got (chain)mail

Why not both? (Source) Ok, first off – fair warning. This post is going to have some hot (mostly clothed) men in it. I’m not responsible for any damage – ie, spontaneous combustion – that occurs to your screen or your knickers while you’re reading this post! So, now that the disclaimers are out of the way, let’s get down to brass tacks. What is it about a man in armour that makes a maiden’s heart go pitter-pat? Is it…

The Viking World

The Viking World

The Viking world. No supermarkets, paved roads, or telephones. No cozy couch or soft bed. Food, clothing, and shelter exist only when someone hunts, farms, spins-weaves-sews, and hacks down enough trees to build it. The reality of living in those conditions may be too much for us to really grasp. Stories depend on a believable setting.

14 Days: The Maiden’s Kiss by Layla Chase (Contest)

14 Days: The Maiden’s Kiss by Layla Chase (Contest)

Strong Women Know What They Want I’m a feminist. I studied feminist theology in college, minored in Women’s Studies (after all, that was during the 1970s) and taught my daughters they have a voice. So when I started writing romance, I created heroines who expect to be listened to, ones who are smart and knowledgeable (sometimes, they had to be sneaky to do this). As much as possible, my heroines don’t make put-my-life-in-danger stupid choices, but they may risk all for…
