Jenn reviews ROMANCING THE BEAT: STORY STRUCTURE FOR ROMANCE NOVELS by Gwen Hayes - Nonfiction, Writing Craft, Romance Writing
I'm pulling my writing craft books off the shelf and reading them as November draws near. I picked this particular book up, hoping to clarify plot beats for my romance writing. When I received it, though, I lost hope. It's so slender, how could it possibly help me straighten out my messy storylines?

Tempting the Beast - Review
I've read Lora Leigh before. Her erotica stories are almost always a terrific weekend escape, and Tempting the Beast is no exception. This is romance with super steamy sex and a dash of wickedness.

Lady Arabella and the Dwarven King - Review
I've spent my life trying to ignore the haters. As strategies go--it's not working.

Sealed into my room to lose weight, I'm kidnapped into a stunning underground world, where males outnumber females by a hundred to one. It doesn't take long to discover I'm the fated mate of the newly ascended king, Thorin the Tenth. He's loud, rude and arrogant, but I'm stunned by glimpses of his vulnerability, and find myself wanting to seize this chance at love. But Dwarfholme is changing, and Thorin is in danger. The gods have limits and enemies are everywhere. I've finally found the partner I've so desperately longed for, but is it love or just really good sex? With my future mother-in-law out to destroy us, and my mate's childhood friend a bloodthirsty god, time is running out. I need to discover the truth between us, before it's too late.
