Robie Madison: Renovating the Heart (Giveaway)

Robie Madison: Renovating the Heart (Giveaway)

In a book filled with stories about blue-collar guys, you know there had to be at least one “Mr. Fix-It”! Robie Madison’s story was just the one I was looking for. Take a lonely divorcée who needs a little boost in girly confidence, add a man she’s drooled over in the past, and who can give as good in the attitude department as our heroine, and you have a winner! Enjoy the excerpt. Be sure to give Robie some love…

M. Marie: In the Heat of the Moment

M. Marie: In the Heat of the Moment

Reading tons of sexy short stories in order to find the right mix of stories to live side by side in one volume is a tough job, right? Nah. For me, it’s a joy. And I have only a couple of rules. First, if I don’t enjoy the story, it’s not making the cut. Second, variety is the spice of life. I didn’t want stories that felt cookie-cutter. I wanted different settings, different flavors of blue collar heroes. Authors with…

Layla Chase: Challenges Met

Layla Chase: Challenges Met

Layla Chase is a longtime friend. Elle and I met her shortly after we decided to become writers at a San Antonio Romance Authors meeting. Then we met for Saturday critique meetings around our kitchen tables, trying to clean up our stories well enough that editors wouldn’t think we were complete idiots. We’ve supported each other all through the years. So, I was thrilled to see her story show up in my inbox! Her choice of blue collar hero is…

Megan Mitcham: Elevation and 2 Free Novels for All

Billionaires…I never understood the draw. They’re barricaded from the world by high walls, security systems and guards. Blue Collar men, on the other hand, build the foundations we live upon. They see and experience the gritty world and do their part to make it a better place. These men aren’t afraid to get down and dirty. To all our Blue Collar heroes out there, thank you! Without you we couldn’t… A major thank you to Delilah Devlin for collecting such an…

Kalissa Wayne: Happy Fathers Day

Today is Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to all those out there who do the job of a dad, whether you be male or female. My wish for you on this day is that you have the wisdom to teach your kids all they need to know, the patience to deal with them whether they are 2 or 20 and never ending love for them. As I think about my own dad today, I am saddened by the realization that…

Sukie Chapin: Mr. Big – The Science of Short Stories and Sex Toys (and a GIVEAWAY)

Sex toys are awesome. There I said it. I feel better now, having that out in the world – how ‘bout you? You know what else is awesome? Short stories. The kind you can curl up with just before bed without fear of pulling an all-nighter to finish. The kind that gets you to Happily Ever After before that morning cup of coffee goes cold. The kind that Delilah put together in Blue Collar. And I really like the idea…

Belinda LaPage: Shearers, Meet-Cutes … and a Contest!

What do you love in romance shorts? No, not a tight pair of denim cut-offs. The other kind of shorts. Short fiction. Like Blue Collar, Delilah Devlin’s latest Boys Behaving Badly anthology. The kind that take you all the way from “How you doin’?” to Happily Ever After in a neat, sweet, thirty-minute romp. I mean, most romance novels aren’t terribly long. You can’t wallow for a week, but you can curl up with one in a sunny corner of…
