Today, Laura Florand stops by to answer a few questions about her most recent release, The Chocolate Heart, an angsty yet wonderful touching romance set in Paris. The Chocolate is an RNN Recommended Read – and one of our picks for best contemporary romance of 2013. If you haven’t read this book (or if you haven’t read Laura Florand), we recommend you do so NOW!
1. Chocolate and Paris tickle so many women's romance sensors, and you manage to combine both in your current series. Why chocolate and why Paris?
I lived in Paris and met my own husband there, and I honestly did not always find that city easy. But it’s so vivid, so full of romance, and it’s layered with centuries and centuries of romantic power over people’s imaginations. It’s a symbol of going for that one big dream – you have to see Paris. There’s no other city quite like it. And the fact that it’s both hugely romantic and real, that you have to face the reality of your dream once you go to it, makes it all the more compelling for story, I think.

Victoria Morgan’s The Heart of a Duke is a historical romance with heart. Morgan tells the story of Lady Julia Chandler who is caught between twin brothers: Lord Daniel Bryant and Edmund, the Duke of Bedford. She is engaged to one - who is a rather nasty character - but drawn to the other - who is everything his evil brother is not. The Heart of a Duke is Morgan’s second book and is one that is perfect for fans of historical romance. Julia and Daniel’s poignant love story is filled with intriguing twists and turns. The setup for the next book also had me hooked (Brett and Emily, I hope!!!). I could not put this one down. While the ending did not surprise – especially because of the title of the book – Morgan made it work. I was convinces that the resolution was the only way for this one to end. This is an author that readers should watch.

Today, Leah Braemel stops by to talk about her latest release, Slow Ride Home, a contemporary romance set on a ranch. Read on to find out how to enter to win a gift card from Leah Braemel.
From Leah Braemel:
My latest book, Slow Ride Home, is once again set in Texas. Which causes a lot of questions about why a Canadian would write about a Texan cowboy when we have our own cowboys, most of whom live out west in Alberta. But when I think cowboys, I think Texans first, probably influenced by all the televisions I grew up watching, but especially since I visited Texas back in 2007.
