Reina Torres: An Idea, Some Spare Parts, and a Little Bit of Magic (Contest)

Reina Torres: An Idea, Some Spare Parts, and a Little Bit of Magic (Contest)

My degree is in Costume Design and Construction, so I make the BIG MONEY! Just kidding, but you knew that already. What I love about costuming, especially on a big scale with a small budget, is just how creative you have to be. I guess, when you look back at my life, my passion has been in the arts. I was a type-A student for the academics stuff, but I loved the arts. As I grew older, it wasn’t just…

I am so excited to be selected for a second Boys Behaving Badly anthology with Delilah Devlin! This one is near and dear to my heart. For over a decade, I was a paramedic/firefighter in the urban jungle of Atlanta. When I saw the call for submissions for this anthology, I knew I had to enter. I had so many stories to share. But, it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I abandoned several stories before I…

If you picked up a copy of the last collection, Stranded, then, hopefully, you read my short story “Quincy Down Under”, which was set in my Montana Bounty Hunter’s world. Well, I couldn’t let Quincy and Tamara’s little liaison be the end of their romance. Tomorrow, you can read the rest of the story! There’s plenty of humor, sexiness, and action to keep you humming along. You can pre-order your copy now, so you don’t miss the next installment! Quincy…

Elle James: “Rescuing Alaska” from STRANDED (Contest)

Elle James: “Rescuing Alaska” from STRANDED (Contest)

I got my story idea from a Halibut fishing trip I took off Homer Spit, Alaska in 2012. The deckhand on the boat was a pretty redhead with some serious skills fileting fish! She was spunky and so darned cute I had to put her into a story. And we’ve seen shows about the Coast Guard guys rescuing people in Alaska. Yummy heroes, dangerous waters—a combination that makes the heart pound! Elle James Excerpt from “Rescuing Alaska” A Coast Guardsman…

Melanie Jayne: “A Change of Predicament” from STRANDED (FREE READ)

Melanie Jayne: “A Change of Predicament” from STRANDED (FREE READ)

I’m Melanie Jayne, the author of “A Change in Predicament” that is a part of the Stranded Anthology. The two characters are introduced in my book Better which part of the seven-book Change Series. I fell in love with the suave gang leader, Vador Ulloa, but I couldn’t come up with a way to redeem him in the series. The plan was to forget about him and consider it a baby-author lesson learned— Don’t fall in love with the irredeemable…

Genevive Chamblee: What is romance?

Genevive Chamblee: What is romance?

I think most people will agree love and romance are different. One can definitely be in a loving relationship that lacks romance. How often has one heard someone comment the spark has gone out of a relationship or that the fire needs to be rekindled? Does that mean the relationship dead or the love has vanished? Possibly. But the chances are what is lacking isn’t love but romance. So, what is romance? Romance is acts or gestures that create a…
