If anyone saw the prom boards Amelia Blanco makes on her favorite fashion app, they'd think Ethan Laurenti was her boyfriend. They wouldn't know that all the plans she's made for them are just dreams, and that she's the girl who watches him from the kitchen while her parents cook for his famous family.

When Amelia's abuelita enrolls her in a month-long fashion internship in NYC, Amelia can't imagine leaving Miami--and Ethan--for that long. As soon as she gets to New York, however, she finds a bigger world and new possibilities. She meets people her own age who can actually carry on a conversation about stitching and design. Her pin boards become less about prom with Ethan and more about creating her own style. By the time she returns to Miami, Amelia feels like she can accomplish anything, and surprises herself by agreeing to help Ethan's awkward, Steve-Jobs-wannabe brother, Liam, create his own fashion app.

As Liam and Amelia grow closer, Ethan realizes that this newly confident, stylish girl may be the one for him after all . . . even though he has a reality TV star girlfriend he conveniently keeps forgetting about. The "new and improved" Amelia soon finds herself in between two brothers, a whole lot of drama, and a choice she never dreamed she'd have to make.

Blog Tour: What We Learned from Julie Garwood

Posted July 5, 2017 by Holly in Giveaways, Promotions | 4 Comments

With the release of Wired, Julie Garwood’s latest FBI/Buchanan novel, Rowena, Casee and I took the time to reflect on our first Garwood, our love for her and how her novels shaped our reading..and our lives, as silly as it may sound. We learned a lot about ourselves, the world and our reading preferences from those early Garwood novels.

Blog Tour: What We Learned from Julie GarwoodWired (Buchanan-Renard, #13) by Julie Garwood

Publication Date: July 4th 2017
Genres: Romantic Suspense

A beautiful computer hacker and a bad-boy FBI agent must collaborate—in more ways than one—in the sizzling new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

Allison Trent doesn’t look like a hacker. In fact, when she’s not in college working on her degree, she models on the side. But behind her gorgeous face is a brilliant mind for computers and her real love is writing—and hacking—code. Her dream is to write a new security program that could revolutionize the tech industry.

Hotshot FBI agent Liam Scott has a problem: a leak deep within his own department. He needs the skills of a top-notch hacker to work on a highly sensitive project: to secretly break into the FBI servers and find out who the traitor is. But he can’t use one of his own. He finds the perfect candidate in Allison. Only, there’s one problem—she wants nothing to do with his job and turns him down flat.

What Liam doesn’t know is that Allison is hiding secrets that she doesn’t want the FBI to uncover. But Liam will do nearly anything to persuade her to join his team, even break a few rules if that’s what it takes. A temptation that could put his job—and both of their futures—on the line…and longing for more . . .

What We Learned from Julie Garwood

Casee: The first book I read by JG was Honor’s Splendour. The first thing I really noticed was the selflessness of Madelyne. All she ever wanted was to escape her brother. Yet when she had the chance, she stayed to help his enemy. The second thing that really stuck with me was the humor. JG has a way of writing humor that remains with you long after you have finished one of her books. Honor’s Splendour is still one of my favorite books to this day.

Holly: My first Julie Garwood book was Killjoy, a contemporary romantic suspense novel. It was also my first foray into romance (outside of a few brief illicit Harlequin’s from my t(w)een years). I don’t remember a lot of the finer details now, but the happy ending was enough to convince me to pick up more books by her. My second read was The Gift. While it will never be my favorite, the historical setting and spunky heroine had me clamoring for more. It wasn’t long before I’d glommed her entire backlist. I fell into each new tale, fully immersed in the lives of these fictional historical characters.

Although these books aren’t perfect, I learned a lot from reading them. The heroines were all strong enough to know their own minds; to endure trials and tribulations without faltering. They were honest and kind, and often had to work around men (and women) who wanted to suppress them. But in the end they came out on top. The heroes were all strong, manly alpha-types who didn’t need nothing and no one..until a tiny slip of a woman strolled into their lives and flipped everything upside down.

I remember reading Honor’s Splendour and just melting when Duncan realized he loved Madelyne, long before she realized she loved him in return. Judith and France-Catherine, from The Secret, taught me that best friends really are forever, and can endure anything. Even backgrounds as far apart as English and Highland Scots.

When Nicholaa defeated Royce in The Prize with nothing more than a sling and a rock, I cheered. And when he realized he hated the woman he’d forced her to become by trying to mold her into what he thought a woman should be, I realized it was better to be yourself than change to fit someone else’s mold.

Even now, more years than I care to admit later, I can pick up a Garwood novel and be transported.

Rowena: For me, Julie Garwood will always be the author that taught me what true friendship looks like. From Judith Elizabeth and Frances Catherine to Ramsey and Brodick and Connor, Quinlan and Crispin, there are plenty of friendships that look a lot like family. Friendships that are solid and true. Sure, they don’t always get along and they fight sometimes but at the end of the day, they have your back and you have theirs.

I’m fortunate to have found friendships just like those with a little help from Julie Garwood herself. I met Holly and Casee on the JGBB and we came together through our shared love of Garwood’s books. We’re not perfect by any means but I still love them and know that they love me. Like Judith and Frances Catherine, there isn’t a thing that I wouldn’t do for them.

It doesn’t matter how many times I read these books, the thing that always sticks out to me are the friendships. I adored how Judith traveled to freaking Scotland to be there for her best friend and how there wasn’t a thing that Quinlan and Crispin wouldn’t do for Connor. The knowledge that no matter where they were or what was waiting for them at the end of the tunnel, they would walk through fire for each other and I loved that. The loyalty, the camaraderie, the friendships…those are my favorite things and Julie Garwood captures them so effortlessly. It’s why she’s one of my favorite authors.

About the Author

WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | PINTEREST | TUMBLR | GOODREADS

It’s no surprise that Julie Garwood became a writer. Growing up in a large family of Irish heritage, she took to storytelling naturally. “The Irish relish getting all the details of every situation,” she explains. “Add in the fact that I was the sixth of seven children. Early in life I learned that self-expression had to be forceful, imaginative, and quick.”

Creating stories was always a passion for Julie, but she didn’t focus on making it a career until the youngest of her three children entered school. After the publications of two young adult books, she turned her interests to historical fiction. Her first novel, GENTLE WARRIOR, was published in 1985, and there has been a steady parade of bestsellers ever since. Today more than 40-million copies of her books are in print, and they are translated in dozens of languages around the world. One of her most popular novels, FOR THE ROSES, was adapted for a HALLMARK HALL OF FAME production on CBS.

Whether the setting be medieval Scotland, Regency England, frontier Montana, or modern-day Louisiana, her themes are consistent: family, loyalty, and honor. Readers claim that it’s the humor as well as poignancy of her novels that keep them coming back for more. Julie described her goals this way: “I want my readers to laugh and cry and fall in love. Basically, I want them to escape into another world for a little while and afterwards to feel as though they’ve been on a great adventure.”

Julie lives in Leawood, Kansas, and is currently working on her next novel.

Silver Silence Blog Tour: Ten Reasons to Read the Psy-Changeling Series

Posted June 12, 2017 by Holly in Giveaways, Promotions | 11 Comments

Nalini Singh‘s latest release, Silver Silence, releases today. Silver Silence starts a new chapter in the Psy/Changeling world. To celebrate, we compiled a list of Ten Reasons to Read the Psy/Changeling Series.

The Psy-Changeling world is multi-layered and diverse. We travel from San Francisco to Moscow, and all around the globe. The characters are multi-dimensional and everything is so well thought-out and put together, the reader is fully immersed. But those aren’t the real only reasons to read the series.

Ten Reasons to Read the Psy/Changeling Series

1) The World: The Psy/Changeling world is big and it’s complex but it’s so, so, so interesting. Each book paints deep and meaningful pictures of the characters that inhabit this world and each character you meet, you can’t help but feel things for them. Between the Changelings, the Psy’s and the Humans, there isn’t a shortage of interesting people to meet and either fall deeply in love with or hate with every fiber of your being because this world’s got it all. The good, the bad and just…everything. There’s much to love about the world that Singh created and to really understand what we mean, you have to try it for yourself.

2) Sexy Changelings: From sexy Alphas to strong Lieutenants and Sentinels to just about every Changeling you meet, there’s a Changeling for everyone. Lucas Hunter, the sexy as sin Alpha for the DarkRiver packs a mean sexy punch and Hawke Snow is no slacker in the sexy department but add in the other changelings in their pack and you’ll find more and more changelings that you won’t kick out your bed for eating crackers. There’s a changeling for everyone in this series. You won’t want to miss out on meeting them for yourself.

3) Intense(ly Sexy) Psy’s: If the Changeling males don’t catch your interest then there’s the intensely sexy Psy male and females that will rock your socks. Nalini Singh walked around RWA a few years ago with a JUDD IS MY BOYFRIEND pin and everyone wanted one for their own because Judd Lauren is the bomb dot com. You’ll meet plenty of Psy’s who you will want to melt yourself and then heat right back up because Singh wrote some melt in your mouth Psy’s that will change your life forever. 🙂

4) Strong, Smart Heroines: For every strong and smart hero in this series, there’s an equally strong and smart heroine. Some of the heroines in this novels were a lot smarter than everyone and seriously, who doesn’t love meeting a strong heroine who is smart and caring as well. There are a lot of great role models for young women in this series from Ashaya to Brenna to Mercy to Tamsyn and so many more. You’ll meet a lot of great women in this series so that’s another reason to read this series.

5) Cross race breeding: Sexy times is great and all but have you read about the freaky bedroom shenanigans of cross race couples? There’s some leopard and wolves action as well as Psy’s and humans and then Psy’s and changelings and seriously, the sexy times in this series is not to be missed.

6) Ice Cold Psy Sex (which is hotter than it may appear): Oh man, the sexy times featuring the Psy’s are a lot hotter than you’d think. Psy’s are just as curious about sex as anyone and sometimes their curiosity and their desire to be the greatest at everything made for some pretty hot sex scenes that’s not to be missed.

7) Hot Teleporting Sex (or ground-breaking telekinetic Psy sex): You’ll have to read about these sexy times to get what I mean…but let’s just say that sex around the world is on our bucket list…we’re just waiting for our sexy Psy to come out of hiding. 😉

8) Scary Bad Guys: The scary bad guys were really good at their jobs in this series. The creep factor and the dedication these bad guys had to being bad was off the charts. Each of the bad guys gave me the creeps and the stuff that they did and their reasons for doing what they did made for some pretty interesting (and disturbing) reads.

9) Scary Good Guys: For every scary bad guy, there was an even scarier good guy and that made us happy. There’s something about those guys who will fight to the death to protect those unable to defend themselves and we’ll always root those guys on and there were plenty of protectors that were pretty scary in this book and they’re the same guys iin #2 and #3.

10) Pack Mentality: One of the most famous lines in Disney’s Lilo & Stitch is, “Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind.” The Changelings live by the same standards and the love that each pack member has for each other is truly an amazing thing to behold in this book. We couldn’t help but fall in love with the Changeling way of life because nobody is ever truly alone in a pack and pack protects their own. You see Psy after Psy drop like flies when they meet and mate with a Changeling because when you grow up with no emotions and no family unit at your back, then find that family unit later in life…you’ll gravitate toward that and want it for your own. The love of pack is special and you’ll definitely want to read this series to see this unity for yourself.

Julie James Comes to Los Angeles! (+Giveaway)

Posted May 1, 2017 by Rowena in Promotions | 11 Comments

The minute Holly and I found out that Julie James was coming to Los Angeles, we made plans to be there because if you know us…we love us some Julie James. Our love for Julie James was established in 2008 with the release of Just the Sexiest Man Alive. I adored that book to pieces. I adored it so much I forced Holly to read it, and have not missed a release of hers since. We’re just as much in love with her stuff now as we were then.

Friday night, Julie James was in town chatting with People Magazine’s Kara Warner at The Ripped Bodice in Culver City and our book nerd asses were over the moon. If you haven’t been, you really must make The Ripped Bodice, the only exclusively romance bookstore in America, a stop when you’re in LA. Sisters Leah and Bea have created funky, fun atmosphere where you can relax, browse new (and used!) books and be with like minded women who love romance as much as you do. Not to mention spend time with Fitzwilliam Waffles, the shop dog (https://www.instagram.com/fitzwilliamwaffles/). I live about 15 minutes away from The Ripped Bodice, but I don’t get out there nearly as much as I’d like. Which is a bummer, since they offer writing workshops, book signings and all manner of reader/writer events (check out their events page here to see what’s coming up).

It’s funny that we were much more excited about seeing Julie James than we were about People Magazine being in the house but well, I guess that’s not such a surprise considering our book nerd status. Having People Magazine there was just an added bonus.

Leah, Bea and their crew turned The Ripped Bodice into an awesome venue with a Chicago flair and we definitely appreciated their efforts (along with the refreshments, of course. :P). Julie James was welcomed with a good sized crowd. She regaled us with stories of her writing adventures, background on the books she’s written and her inspiration for The Thing About Love. She also took some questions from the audience, then signed some books. It was an all around fabulous book signing, even though my Dodger loving heart was a bit bummed that the Chicago Cubs game was playing in the background. Ha!  (H: Sometimes I don’t even know how we’re friends. CUBS 4EVER!!) If you have a chance to attend a Julie James signing, you really must. She’s a wonderful storyteller in person as well as in print. Holly and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.

To celebrate the event, we’re giving away a signed copy of Julie Jame’s The Thing about Love to one lucky winner. Please use the rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!!

Thanks to Julie James, Kara Warner of People Magazine and everyone at The Ripped Bodice for a fun night. It was one for the books and I will definitely be making more time to visit the best bookstore in the entire universe! 🙂

Wolf Signs by Vivian Arend
Series: Granite Lake Wolves #1
Release Date: April 21, 2017
Publisher: Arend Publishing
Genres: Paranormal, Romance

Talk about getting your signals crossed…

Robyn Maxwell doesn’t care that her brother has to cancel out on their backcountry ski trip. She can do it alone. The fact she’s deaf doesn’t make her survival skills any weaker. The chance to get away from it all and relax in the Yukon wilderness is just what she’s been craving.

Meeting wilderness guide Keil at the cabin starts cravings of another kind. Keil’s one hot hunk of ripped, tasty male. Now she has to deal with raging hormones as well as strange questions about wolves and mates and challenges to the death.

Keil was trying for a nice reflective retreat before challenging for the Alpha position of his Alaskan pack. He wasn’t planning on meeting the woman destined to be his mate, or finding out she’s not aware she has the genes of a wolf.

Between dealing with his accident-prone younger brother, a deaf mate with an attitude and an impending duel to the death, his week—and his bed—is suddenly full.

Far from the relaxing getaway any of them had in mind…

Product Warnings: Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “talking with your hands”. Includes dangerous use of sarcasm and hot nookie in a remote wilderness sauna.

Excerpt

The sky overhead cleared, a break in the clouds letting moonlight stream down. It landed in a near perfect circle not ten feet from where they stood. The light slowly moved toward them, like a spotlight highlighting the dais where wolfie royalty appeared in state before the commoners…

She snorted at the mental image. Um…no. She certainly didn’t plan on being Queen Top Dog. Wolf. Whatever.

“I’m glad you’re enjoying yourself,” Keil teased, voice stroking her mind.

She glanced at him, suddenly struck with more thoughts.

His—

Shared amusement. Caring. Times spent talking late into the night, working to make her happy. Building a family and building a life. Sex…

Whoops, that final thought packed a lot of power behind it, and she blushed. “What comes next?

He waggled his brows. “You do.”

Oh, no. That whole “sex in front of the pack” thing wasn’t happening. Not on her watch.

Robyn opened her mouth to tell him that when the moonlight hit them and the world shifted ten feet to the left.

The light intensified. Shadows faded as her vision sharped. Scents grew thicker, stronger. Images danced into her head as she dragged air in through her nose.

What was that one? That delicious, distracting aroma?

She sniffed harder. Her skin twitched as she identified the animal, and instantly began plotting how soon she could track it down and—

“Robyn.” Keil’s prod was full of amusement. “We’re kind of busy at the moment. Maybe you could leave off chasing bunnies for a few hours.”

Oops.
