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…

“Some Like it Dirty” by Kimber Vale

“Some Like it Dirty” by Kimber Vale

When I first started brainstorming ideas for a cowboy tale, a common thread kept teasing me; I loved the idea of polar opposites getting together.  After all, isn’t that frequently the case in real life?  I kept picturing this tan, hunk-of-a-man, totally rough around the edges in a make-no-apologies kind of way.  I had a vision of a high-maintenance, boardroom diva who somehow gets plunked down in the middle of cowboy territory and is so far out of her element…
