“Firelight” by Kristen Callihan (historical, paranormal, Grand Central, February 2012, $5.99, 400pp)
From this moment that I started reading Kristen Callihan’s “Firelight,” I was hooked. I couldn’t resist the firestarting heroine and the deeply tortured hero finding true love in dark London. The mystery kept me turning the pages with gusto as I tried to figure out what possible ailment affected said hero, Lord Benjamin Archer and how it all might be resolved. Callihan kept me guessing with this riveting romance.

“Imapact” by Cassandra Carr (erotic, Ellora’s Cave, February 2011, $7.50, 114pp): Connor Raub is a professional bull rider and also a Dom. However, he only indulges his dominant tendencies at an exclusive BDSM club afraid that the conservative people and sponsors in the world of bull riding wouldn’t understand his personal lifestyle choices. Yet, he is intrigued by the new girl working with the tour, Jessica Talbot and has a hard time restraining his desires.
Jessica is of course a submissive, one who has lusted after Connor since seeing him engaged in a scene at his club. She is flattered when Connor expresses interest in her, but then disappointed when he balks at indulging in kink. He adamantly believes that they need to keep their relationship vanilla because of his career.

RNN welcomes debut author Manda Collins whose historical romance "How to Dance with a Duke" released yesterday. RNN is giving away a copy of Collins' debut book to one lucky commenter. Read to the end to find out how to enter.
Q: Your debut historical romance "How to Dance with a Duke" releases on January 31st. It features a heroine, Miss Cecily Hurston, a bluestocking who is an Egyptian antiquities scholar and is desperate to continue her father's work. She is a bit of a spitfire. How did you create her character?
A: Since I was one of those nerdy girls in high school, I've always been fascinated by the nineteenth century version of the girl nerd, the bluestocking. I knew when I was planning this trilogy that I needed my three heroines to all be gifted at something. I'm not sure when Egyptology entered the picture, but as soon as it did I knew Cecily could be nothing other than a languages and antiquities expert. The rest just fell into place.

“Space in His Heart” by Roxanne St. Claire (romantic suspense, self-published, November 2011, $3.99, 285pp)
In romancelandia, there are lots of heroes with cool professions or personas: dukes, cowboys, doctors, military men, vampires, immortal warriors, FBI agents, firemen, etc. But, there is one fascinating profession that is seriously underrepresented – astronaut. They are men who wear flight suits, love to serve their country and have an unholy love of speed (btw, I would love to see a heroine astronaut too). Sounds like perfect hero material to me. As such, I was excited to learn that Roxanne St. Claire had written a romance featuring an astronaut in “Space in His Heart.” When she offered me a review copy, I could not say no. And the result is an action-packed, emotional thrill ride that even has a romance – a romance that made my heart very happy.
