#RombkLove Day 7 : Cowboy Romance (and why I love it)

  Hello and welcome to Scorching Book Reviews. My name is Nix and I have a Cowboy Romance addiction. This post is a bit of a cross-post with my Celebrating Romance Event (see past posts) as I chose to celebrate Cowboy Romance! This is a laughable addiction to all who know me as, as I live in the UK, the likelihood of me meeting an actual Cowboy is probably less than me being struck by […]

Celebrating Romance : What is Love by KT Grant (With eBook giveaway)

  What is love? I don’t mean the 1993 earworm dance hit by Haddaway, but the actual question. This is a three worded question that has stuck with me since I start publishing in 2010 (my 8th year this month). You may wonder why this question is so important to me. Back when I decided to write romance for the purpose of getting published, I had a decision to make. What type of romance should […]

  Hi, all!  I’m Abby and I write passionate, playful contemporary romance. It’s a privilege to share my love for all things romance with you and Scorching Book Reviews.  Thanks for having me, Nix! The trees swayed gently in the nighttime breeze, casting moving shadows over me and Mark.

Celebrating Romance :  HEAs for the childless heroine : Guestpost by Rosanna Leo with Giveaway

Thanks so much to Nix for hosting me today. I am thrilled to be here. Romances. We all know and love them, right? I’d be willing to bet the majority of us have read many romances in which the protagonists get together, get married and start talking about having a baby. Very often in our genre, we get to meet these little tykes too. There are surprise babies, long-awaited babies, babies in peril, babies and […]

Celebrating Romance : Kelly Maher talks Penzeys Spices, Rogue Hearts & offers a giveaway

  Hello, fellow romance lovers! I’ve had the great honor to be a participant in two of the Rogue anthologies which are filled with stories of resistance-centered romance. Next week, the fourth anthology, Rogue Hearts, releases with my story “Coming Up Rosa.” The inspiration for my story is Penzeys Spices and the messages their president, Bill Penzey, includes in each newsletter. I’ve been a happy customer of theirs for over a decade, but in November […]

Celebrating Romance 2018 : Romance – From privilege to diversity by Renee Dahlia

  Like many romance readers, my gateway books were Harlequin Historicals – mostly regency set books with husband hunters floating around ballrooms in gorgeous dresses, navigating the ridiculous etiquette, and making a rake fall hard in love. These books spoke to the young version of me on a very familiar level. I’d grown up with close connections to the aristocracy and my family idealised our heritage. As I’ve aged, I’ve understood the more difficult aspects […]

Celebrating Romance : May 2018

Hello and welcome to the Celebrating Romance Event! I’ve always had this event on the cards, wanting to show the good side of our little corner of the book market, but now it seems more important than ever. We have flaws (big ones) but we also have some positives and I hope that this event showcases the good, the bad and our hopes for the future of romance. I am so lucky to have some […]
