Links time! *fanfare of trumpets* It’s Wednesday and I think the cold temps are making me a little delirious. I’ve lost count of the many layers I’m wearing. I just know I can’t zip up my peacoat and I feel like a marshmallow person. Hope you’re all having a fantastic week! … Frolic has a Romance Rarities Bingo! I think some of the categories are pretty interesting and I’ll be cross-posting it to our Goodreads group. … Spotify has playlists for your pets and their personalities. Do they have one for asshole cats? … Catch up on the suspicious “restructuring” news from Dreamspinner Press. … Sarah: Registration for the Researching the Romance Conference at Bowling Green State University is now open.

Alyssa Cole is the featured guest, and if you’re interested, I hope you’ll sign up! … I found this quiz for seeing which democratic candidate matches your own policy ideas is pretty interesting.

Three Little Words Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday is $1.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and it’s being price-matched. This is a contemporary road trip romance. Hello, catnip! Readers also say they liked the banter and differences between the Canadian heroine and Southern hero. However, others wished they felt more of a connection to the main characters. In this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday proves that opposites don’t just attract, they ignite. Gia Gallo is officially in bridesmaid hell. Stranded in New York with her best friend’s wedding dress, Gia has six days to make it to Florida in time for the ceremony. And oh-so-charming best man Bennett Buchanan has taken the last available rental car. Looks like she’s in for one long road trip with the sexiest – and most irritating – Southern gentleman she’s ever met… Bennett’s pretty sure that if there was ever a woman to break his “no flings” rule, Gia would be it. Sure, she’s stubborn. She’s also funny, smart, and the attraction between them is getting hotter with every state line they cross. While Bennett doesn’t do casual, Gia doesn’t do “relationships.” But if they break the rules, this unlikely pair might discover that…

Kelsey is mad that Hannah Ann told Peter she was a bully, and Hannah Ann is mad that Kelsey accused her of champagne thievery. Also there’s a redhead on the show that I absolutely do not remember, and I would not be at all surprised if they just snuck a random person on there to see if anyone noticed. The first one-on-one date goes to Victoria P. Peter likes to remind everyone that he grew up like five minutes from the McMansion, so he takes Victoria P to a local country western store and then line dancing at his favorite bar. So if Peter grew up near the McMansion, is it possible that as a small child he was corrupted by the forces of the Rose God? Did the Rose God appear to him, in a storm drain, holding a floating red rose? Has Peter been groomed to be the penultimate sacrifice? [Ed. note: I’d watch the absolute heckin’…
