ShatteredEmotions72Today, Carrie Ann Ryan stops by Romance Novel News to talk about Shattered Emotions, the 5th book in her Redwook Pack series which is out on June 18th.


Carrie Ann Ryan interviews her main characters, Maddox and Ellie

Thank you so much for having us today! I’m sitting with Maddox and Ellie from the 5th book in my Redwood Pack series, SHATTERED EMOTIONS. You have no idea how excited I am for this release. You see, Maddox was the brother I loved the most when I was plotting out the series. Yes, I know you’re not supposed to play favorites, but I couldn’t help it in this case. There was just something so secretive about him. Of course, as I wrote his book, I found out his twin, North, was even more secretive but that’s another story altogether. (*cough* North’s book comes out Jan 2014 and is called Hidden Destiny.) I fell in love with the heroine, Ellie, during A Taste for a Mate. She was only a whisper, the girl with the fire in her eyes who watched the demon kill her cousin and twin sister, but she fought back.


That’s the type of fight I wanted to see. Throughout the series people have watched Ellie learn to heal and Maddox break down. People have been rooting for them since the beginning and I’m so, so happy to tell you that their book is here on June 18th.


So let’s get started with the interview!


Tempted into Danger coverToday, we have author Melissa Cutler here talking about her latest release, Tempted Into Danger. Find out more about its hero Diego. Plus, Melissa Cutler is giving away a $5 giftcard to Starbucks.

Nice Guns, Soldier

Melissa Cutler here. I'm excited to be on Romance Novel News talking about my latest release from Harlequin Romantic Suspense, TEMPTED INTO DANGER. Like many great action-adventure heroes, Diego—TEMPTED's hero—is an alpha male through and through. He doesn't exactly have a way with the ladies, having spent nearly all his time training or on missions, but smooth talking and slick moves aren't what a lady requires when a bunch of really bad dudes are trying to kill her.


Heart of ObsidianNalini Singh's Heart of Obsidian (out on June 4th) is one of the most highly anticipated releases on 2013 and is sure to turn the Psy/Changeling world on its ear. Find out what Nalini Singh has to say about this book, the series and her upcoming Guild Hunter book.


  1. Heart of Obsidian (out June 4th) is the 12th book of your wildly popular Psy/Changeling series. Have you been surprised by the series’ success?


Yes, happily so! As a writer, I felt in my gut that Slave to Sensation (book 1) was the start of something special, but I had no way of knowing if readers would feel the same. I’m so grateful to every reader who’s come along with me on this ride, and I hope they continue to do so as the series goes forward.


DaniCollinsToday, RNN welcomes author Dani Collins talking about how many times one can be a debut author. Collins is also giving away a copy of her latest "Proof of Their Sin."


Debut Redux by Dani Collins

How many times can you debut as an author? Because I’m going on my fourth and I’m starting to feel like it’s time to embrace the multi-published mantle.


Here’s what happened. I wrote for twenty-five years without a sale. One year ago this month, Mills & Boon London called to offer me a two-book contract for their Modern/Presents line. Yay! My first book sale.


ChattCoverpart1RNN welcomes author Logan Belle to talk about her new release and its relation to "Lady Chatterly's Lover."


Love and The Lady: Why I Can’t Forget Lady Chatterley’s Lover

By Logan Belle


            My fiancé was cleaning out a closet when he found his dusty old copy of D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. He told me it was the first “erotic” novel he’d ever read. I said it was probably mine, too. He said, you should write a modern version of it. I said, you’re crazy. You don’t re-paint the Mona Lisa.


Today, RNN is participating in a scavenger hunt blog hop for the cover reveal of Amanda Usen's Into the Fire (releasing June 10th). Read on to learn how to enter to win a foodie gift pack as part of the scavenger hunt.

CovetThyNeighborToday, RNN hosts L.A. Witt for a guest post about Writing the Rainbow - or both heterosexual and gay romance.


Writing the Rainbow

By: L.A. Witt

I’m one of those authors who writes both hetero[sexual] and gay romances. Also some bisexual, transgender, and lesbian stories in there, but my work is predominantly either hetero or gay.


Writing on those two sides of the sexuality fence is interesting to say the least. There are things that will be an issue in one genre, but not another. Homophobia as a central issue, for example. Concern about unintended pregnancies. Sexual identity will usually be addressed differently (i.e., a straight man isn’t generally going to be wrestling with, trying to hide, or actively otherwise concerned about the fact that he’s interested in women).


Straddling the LineRNN is pleased to host Sarah M. Anderson for the Book Trailer Reveal for The Bolton Brothers: Brick by Brick!


Yes, some people pay money for book trailers from trained professionals who know what they’re doing. And some people (I’m looking at you, Tessa Dare!) make them with their daughters’ Barbies.


I’m not like those people. I’m too cheap to pay for trailers and I have a son—no Barbies.


Which means one thing. I have Legos. Lots and lots of Legos.


LET IT BE ME coverToday, we welcome author Kate Noble's whose latest release is the historical romance "Let It Be." Kate is giving away a copy of this romance to one commenter.


From Kate Noble:
How to play the Appassionata, in 3 months or less.


In my latest historical romance, I set out a challenge for my heroine that is a little out of the ordinary. Not only does she have to travel to Venice, fall in love with a handsome man, and go through some momentous character growth over the course of the novel, I also make her have to learn a major concert level piece of music to play in front of Venice high society.
