RNN 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 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).

RNN 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.

Today, 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:
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.
Title: Bridge Over the Atlantic
Mallory Westerman is a full-figured, successful, young business woman living in Yorkshire, England. Though very career minded, she is extremely self-conscious about her ample curves and so her love life tends to pay the price. Concentrating solely on her business, she has almost given up on finding someone to love. That is until she literally trips into the arms of a stranger who becomes her Knight in shining armour. The immediate sexual and romantic spark that blossoms into love and the events that follow, irrevocably change Mallory’s life-path and self-image forever, but only go to prove that the road to true love is never smooth and that things don’t always turn out how you expect…

RNN is pleased to have author Carrie Ann Ryan here today to talk about finding love again in support of the release of "Her Lucky Love."

Finding that Second Love
When you pick up a romance novel, you expect to watch that hero and heroine fall for each other and make that happy ever after. In HER LUCKY LOVE you get that totally, but this also isn’t the first time Allison, the heroine, fell for someone.
RNN has author Susan Mac Nicol stopping by today to talk about her books, particulary, “Together in Strarlight” which came on out February 20th.
Q: You have a book coming out shortly, "Together in Starlight." Can you tell us a bit about the book and its Starlight series?
A: Of course. The Starlight series, of which the first book is “Cassandra by Starlight” was inspired by a true event in my home county of Essex. A woman was driving down the motorway when someone lobbed a huge concrete block on top of her car. She was badly injured and ended up in hospital. My imagination ran riot and when I read the story, I thought, what if that had been a person jumping on her car to his death? What if that person had a famous older brother who felt honour bound to visit the injured woman in hospital and offer her his apologies for her injuries? And of course, what if there were sparks and the couple ended up being attracted to each other. So Bennett Saville, handsome, sexy and rich man about town up and coming actor and Cassandra Wallace, who is ten years older than him and a professional business woman, made their debut. Once I started telling their story, I couldn't stop. Finally I had three books, a very happy ending and a story in between that included psychopathic stalkers, a disturbed family member, lots of steamy sex, a fairly violent incident as a result of the stalking and a relationship developing under the rather heady glow of the Hollywood spotlights - the Starlight as I called it.
