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.

Nalini 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.
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.
Today, 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.

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…
