Romance Novel News welcomes the writing duo known as Katie Porter to discuss their upcoming erotic romance Bare Knuckle (out October 8th). This book is HOT and steamy read. Jennifer recommends it highly.
1. Bare Knuckle is the latest book in Katie Porter’s “Vegas Top Guns” series. Tell us a bit about this erotic romance.
In Bare Knuckle, readers will meet a hero and heroine who are so perfectly suited to each other that even they realize it early on in the book. Eric “Kisser” Donaghue is a fighter pilot who lives fast, hides behind scars he acquired in a near-fatal crash, and freely admits to intimate partners that his sexual fetish is voyeurism. Trish Monroe is a showgirl who loves the limelight, hides behind platinum blonde wigs and stage make-up, and wants nothing more than to be admired and watched by a lover. Their kinks dovetail so perfectly. Their chemistry explodes.

Romance author Karen M Cox stops by today to insist that ‘Romance is Not Dead’ in support of her upcoming October release "At the Edge of the Sea."
…and to prove it, I took a very scientific *cough, cough* poll (That means I asked around.) I wanted women to tell me one thing that a Real Guy has said in his life that was romantic. It didn’t even have to be something said to the women themselves, just that a Real Guy said it at some point to someone. What I discovered was that not every guy shows his romantic side in exactly the same way—just like not every woman thinks the same things are romantic. Variety is the spice of life, and to each her own, etc., etc.
And it probably doesn’t take a mental heavyweight or even a pseudoscientific poll to determine that. But after taking my poll, I sorted the romantic ‘gestures,’ we’ll call them, into five categories. The sample below includes some funny, some sweet, some over-the-top, and some understated.

It is well known on Twitter that I read some seriously WTF books – and live tweet them rather religiously. But sometimes, the 140 characters that twitter allows just aren’t enough to highlight the wonder that these books contain. So, I plan to highlight some of these WTF scenes with regular posts. These posts will definitely be NSFW as most WTFery I run across takes place in sex scenes.
So, we shall start this series with a book that rates high on my WTF scale, “Beats” by Kendall Grey an erotic romance about a woman who pines after a bandmate who is involved in a bizarre relationship with his best friend (who is male). The best friend provides our hero, whose name happens to be Toombs Badcock (seriously), with the pain that he needs to be sexually aroused. The BFF also dominates Toombs. Our heroine Jinx, however, is determined to steal Toombs away from Rax (the BFF). The result is a whole lot of sexual shenanigans as Rax blackmails Jinx into joining into his sex play with Toombs.

RNN welcomes author Tawny Weber whose “Fearless” was recently released as part of the new Cosmo Red Hot Reads series.
1. Your recent release "Fearless" releases on September 15th and is part of the new Cosmo Hot Reads series. Can you tell us a bit about "Fearless"?
I hope readers enjoy FEARLESS. I had a great time writing it, and taking a very modern, Cosmo-esque spin on the classic Cinderella story. Gia, the heroine, is crazy about a guy she works with. Not only is he way out of her league, there are fraternization rules at work. So her friends use the Girlz Guide to figure out how to make her fantasy come true. This includes a total makeover, a trip to Las Vegas and, since it wouldn’t be a Cinderella story without them, a pair of very gorgeous shoes.
