JD Robb’s Brotherhood In Death Slays Everything This Week...

Feb 13, 2016 by

It’s been a few weeks since I reported the weekly book charts, specifically the New York Times and USA Today. There’s some interesting movement, specifically with established, long time successful authors. It should come as no surprise that JD Robb, Jonathan Kellerman, and Jo Jo Moyes have the biggest sellers in adult fiction this week. Speaking of JD Robb, the latest In Death book- Brotherhood in Death is the biggest adult fiction seller this week, with close to 60,000 sales in both print and digital.     Over on the NYT Combined Fiction list, Brotherhood in Death holds the #1 spot, followed by Breakdown by Jonathan Kellerman (sold little more than half of what Brotherhood in Death sold), followed by Me Before You by JoJo Moyes (upshot is because of the trailer for the...

Guest Author Post: Pole Position and Heroes in Sports by Sofia Grey...

Feb 12, 2016 by

Athletes are yummy in romantic fiction. Fit, dedicated and competitive, they make great heroes. Add in a sport with an element of danger, and boom! You add a whole new dimension to the character, and the story. My dad used to love watching the Formula-1 racing on TV, and I spent hours as a kid glued to the screen alongside him. I guess it was inevitable that the first hero I wrote would be a race car driver. It’s a perfect storm of hero elements to me: physically fit, superb reactions, ultra-confident – isn’t that always sexy? – and risking his life on the track every few weeks. He’s smart too, with an analytical side to his character. Gorgeous too, but that’s pretty much a given in romantic fiction. I’ve read other books with...

Jockblocked Book Review *Jen Frederick*...

Feb 11, 2016 by

  She’s always played it safe… College junior Lucy Washington abides by one rule—avoid risk at all costs. She’s cautious in every aspect of her life, from her health, to her mock trial team, to the boring guys she dates. When a brash, gorgeous jock walks into the campus coffeeshop and turns his flirt on, Lucy is stunned by the force of attraction. For the first time ever, she’s willing to step out of her comfort zone, but can she really trust the guy who’s determined to sweep her off her feet? He’s always played around… Entering his last year of college eligibility, linebacker Matthew “Matty” Iverson has the team captaincy in his sights. And it’s his for the taking, if he can convince his quarterback Ace Anderson to give up the starting position....

Appealed Book Review *Emma Chase*...

Feb 10, 2016 by

  When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate – and prized – parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Christian Louboutins. Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them. And now he has his sights set on Kennedy. When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell. She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore – she’s a DC prosecutor...

When Black Women Fall Blog Tour: The Education of a Black Heroine by Piper Huguley...

Feb 9, 2016 by

  When The Preacher’s Promise was first put forward to the public in the quarterfinal phase of the final Amazon Breakthrough Contest, some people began to question the history of my story in their reviews. They had never known of the possibility of an educated Black woman who traveled on her own to the southern states to teach. But I knew that this ignorance developed out of the lies that history tells us. We hear a lot about the brave white Christians who went to the southern states right after the Civil War, but we hear nothing of the Black people who went to help. This is one of the reasons why I wrote The Preacher’s Promise, so that the historical lie of omission could be exposed. My heroine, Amanda Stewart, was based on...

WTFckery or Not? You Decide

Feb 7, 2016 by

After a little hiatus, WTFckery or Not is back!   We can’t have a WTFckery post without a few WTF books and their covers:   No lie, it’s #1 in LGBT Erotica. I wonder what The Donald thinks?   He was a billionaire, I was a bellboy, can I make it anymore obvious? It all started one fateful afternoon in summer of 2012. I was working as a bellboy at the Trump Hotel in Hong Kong on an internship program. This was my first time in a big city. It was all I could have ever dreamed of, and more. But little did I know, it was all about to change.   Because wading in red goo never felt so good:     Needs more cleavage:       I have no clue what...

Recipe for Kisses Book Review *Michelle Major*...

Feb 5, 2016 by

  Chloe Daniels doesn’t need a man—after escaping a marriage gone bad, she guards her heart as closely as the details of her past. So when hot-tempered celebrity chef Ben “the Beast” Haddox storms into her struggling toy store, Chloe is determined not to be drawn in by his broad shoulders…or baby-blue eyes.
