From the moment that I read my first Lora Leigh book, I was hooked. She writes some incredibly dominant heroes who I often want to knock some sense into. However, I can’t resist them. I don’t even mind that some of her books may have timeline/continuity issues or grammatical errors. Her stories speak to me, and I relish the opportunity to read each new book. And to be honest, I relish the opportunity to re-read them as well.
Now, Lora Leigh has all sorts of signature devices in her books. Most of her heroes find they don’t truly connect to their women until they can express their love anally. There are often lots and lots of candy references a la “I’m going to eat you up like the sweetest candy” along with comparisons of nipples to fruit (nipples as tight berries, etc). Oh yeah, and most of her heroines are waxed smooth for their men. And again, I love these facets of Leigh’s writing that absolutely identify her words as her own. I actively look for them in each book and smile when I find them.

Jessica Scott’s “Until There Was You” – I have a review copy of this one that I haven’t gotten a chance to read. I will be reading it next, however as I very much enjoyed Scott’s debut book “Because of You.”
Jamie Brenner’s “The Gin Lovers #1” – I’ve read the first two installments of this series and while I’m not a big fan of historicals set during the Prohibition, I’m very curious about this series.
Christine d’Abo’s “Calling the Shots” – I’ve been waiting for Josh’s story since d’Abo first introduced him in “Double Shot” (was that only a year ago??). Josh was the third in a ménage in “Double Shot,” but he got too emotionally involved. Now, he finds his own happily ever after with Beth and Oliver. This one is a fabulous read. I highly recommend it!

Today, RNN is pleased to host Jamie Brenner, author of the serial novel, “The Gin Lovers” - a Prohibition set historical romance, for an interview.
Q: Your upcoming release, "The Gin Lovers" is a serialized romance for St. Martins set amidst "the backdrop of Prohibition and the rise of the Jazz Age." Can you tell us a bit more about the story?
A: The Gin Lovers is, at its heart, a story about a woman who suddenly questions her choices.
Charlotte’s marriage was a “safe” choice, she follows all the rules – but the rules are changing dramatically. She looks around her and sees women taking risks, making their own choices, and living lives that have nothing to do with having a proper marriage. And she wonders if she is missing out. Then, once her eyes are more open to the world around her, she discovers that her “safe” husband is not who he appears to be.
