Today’s Links: Romance Writers Told This Type of Hero Would Never Sell. These Authors Showed How Hot They Could Be. – I wish very much that mainstream coverage of romance could move beyond sneering derision or uncritical puff pieces. I also wish we’d stop writing pieces that assume women aren’t… Read more »

Let the Lover Be by Sheree L. Greer

Let the Lover Be by Sheree L. Greer

September 10, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 0

The cover of this book jumped out at me when I was browsing NetGalley one afternoon earlier this summer. Something about the bubblegum pink background mixed with that kinda butch black model caught my eye and made me read the blurb. When I saw that it took place in New… Read more »

This book went on my shopping list a while ago when multiple people tweeted their excitement over seeing it released in ebook after it was published almost twenty years ago. When that wasn’t quite enough to get me over my wariness of cop heroes and click buy, I saw Kitt… Read more »

Loving Laney by Harmony Evans

June 4, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 0

When I went to RT, the registration packet included a USB stick containing something like 600+ ebooks. So of course when I got home I went on NetGalley to look for books to request. (I might have a problem. /shrug) I’d read and enjoyed Evans before and the blurb for… Read more »

A Trove Of 400,000 Images From The Met That You Can Use For Free 50 Shades of Nonsense – There was yet another awful article published where a Man shared his Manly Thoughts on romance. Natalie breaks it down for our small ladybrains. Giraldi’s article is an absolute textbook example… Read more »
