If you love westerns, I've got a definite recommendation for you.

is the latest release from my author, Sabine Starr. It's the story of a gorgeous saloon singer/outlaw and the US Marshall who think he's going to lock her up. Maybe he can lead her to redemption or maybe not, but he's sure to have a wild ride with her along the way.  Sabine Starr comes from a family with long-standing western ties, so she definitely knows of what she writes.  I hope you enjoy.

And if you're not yet convinced, check out the book trailer here on her publisher's website.

New Release: Just One Taste by Celeste Norfleet

An appetite for seduction... 
Every woman on Key West is swooning over newcomer Chase Buchanan. All except bakery owner Nikita Coles.

She can't trust the man or his motivations, even if he does look good enough to eat....
Convincing Nikita to sell her property will be a challenge, but Chase is ready for it. The Coles family has a rich history on Key West, but the Buchanans never give up on what they want. Seduction begins as a business strategy, and quickly becomes the most pleasurable experience of Chase's life. Yet winning the battle of wills could mean losing the love he never expected to find....

What with the massive power outages depriving the Washington, DC, area of its usual air-conditioned comfort this week, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to describe heat. In the books I’ve been reading about summer, what it all comes down to, from what I can tell, is pacing. A hot summer novel, whether it be romance, mystery, or a classic, has to have slow-moving characters and action because no one wants to run around in that heat. When the characters move and think slowly, and the novel is paced correctly, it’s easy to feel the blanket of hot air on your skin.

Good pacing is important in other settings as well, though. Each individual scene of a novel needs to be paced to build optimal tension. This does not mean that each scene needs to be fast-paced to create tension; in fact, among the novels we’ve been reading lately, a continuous fast pace has broken tension because the reader cannot continue to keep up with unrelenting speed. Instead of constant high-pace or high action scenes, think about what mood you want to set for the scene and the section. If you want the grand discovery at the end of Chapter Eight to be incredibly tense, a slow build can make all the difference. Of course this all needs to be adjusted for each novel, but we’d love to read some stories where the pacing really makes us feel the heat!

New Release: Wild Thing by Tawny Weber!

A new treat for those who’ve loved Tawny’s earlier “bedtime stories”and a delight for those looking for a new sexy short read.  Besides what’s not to like: dogs, a hunky guy and great romance. Let me know what you think.
Quick synopsis: When groomer Andrea Tanner finds herself tied up and with one of her employers prized pooches dog napped, she definitely hopes for a hero. But the hero she expected wasn’t hunky private eye Percy Graham, whose body still fills her fantasies as she fills up his dreams. The two set out to catch a dog napper, if the passion between them doesn't catch them first….
