Happy December! For those who had Thanksgiving, was it delicious? For those who didn’t, did you have a good Thursday? In New England, we have some significant snow fall. I always love the first real snow of the season. The slushy aftermath? Not so much. … Frolic Media has an exclusive short story by historical romance author Amelia Grey. It’s a nice lunch/coffee break pick me up! … Sarah was quoted in this profile of the romance novel industry in Glamour! They also ran a couple other romance-inspired posts. … I may have already shared this, but oh well! Meet The Cat Reviewer on Twitter. It does what it says on the tin: reviews cats. Wrexham cat. Ran away when I approached. Points knocked off for reticence, bad language and a candidly insulting bum display. But hey, it’s a cat and therefore excellent. 7/10 @thecatreviewer pic.twitter.com/ltq9dCLRaF — Lewis Baston (@lewis_baston) December 3, 2019 … Trans Awareness Week was last month, but we could always use a reminder of the danger trans women, especially trans women of color, face on a daily basis.

Say No to the Duke Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James is $1.99! This is the latest book in The Wildes of Lindow Castle series and I love the cheekiness of the cover. Readers say this one didn’t live up to their expectations while others really enjoyed the heroine. One little wager will determine their fate—a daring escape or falling into temptation with a rakish lord. Lady Betsy Wilde’s first season was triumphant by any measure, and a duke has proposed—but before marriage, she longs for one last adventure. No gentleman would agree to her scandalous plan—but Lord Jeremy Roden is no gentleman. He offers a wager. If she wins a billiards game, he’ll provide the breeches. If he wins…she is his, for one wild night. But what happens when Jeremy realizes that one night will never be enough? In the most important battle of his life, he’ll have to convince Betsy to say no to the duke.

B Didn’t Stay in Vegas by Chelsea Cameron September 18, 2019 Contemporary RomanceLGBTQIARomance When I’m having the kind of week where everything sucks and the world is a trash fire, I gravitate towards super fluffy, angst-free romances. Last year, I discovered one of my favourites, Marriage of Unconvenience by Chelsea M. Cameron. I was thoroughly charmed by the friends-to-lovers, marriage-of-convenience situation and smiled my way through it. So, when I heard she had another friends-to-lovers book coming out with a marriage element, I did a little happy dance. It came just in time too, because I was able to read it during a spectacularly bad week, and it was a perfect refuge. Didn’t Stay in Vegas has an opening scene that immediately hooked me. Seriously, I looked around my bedroom when I read it because I wanted to immediately tell someone all about it. Alas, I was alone. Anyway, it starts like this: I woke up with glitter in my junk. Granted, I also woke up wearing a dress I didn’t remember buying, in a bed I’d never seen before, and with the worst hangover in the history of time. I had to pee as if I’d drunk twelve gallons…
