My Top Five Queer Holiday-ish Romances by Renee Dahlia : Festive Kisses Event Day One (Includes ARC Giveaway)

When I started putting this list together, I figured it would easy. I read loads of queer books, but it turns out not many of them are holiday related. As an atheist, I’m not a great fan of Christmas and that seems to be reflected in my reading! I’ve even written a couple of books set at a found family Christmas party and even then, the party is only a small part of the book. […]

#RombkLove Day 16 : Fake Relationships

#RombkLove Day 16 : Fake Relationships

I love Fake relationships but I could not explain to you why. It could be the angst factor (so much angst), it could be the slow slide from fake to real or it just could be because all of all the secret longing that goes on. Whatever the reason, I think I’ve read at least a 100 of these tropes and always am on the lookout for more. I’ve decided that Green-Card marriages and business […]

#RombkLove Day 29 : Ménage and Polyam Romance

  Hello and welcome to Scorching Book Reviews. My name is Nix and I do enjoy a good ménage story. The stories on this list are about relationships with more than just two people; whether it be for a month, a year or forever, the love story is about how they make it work together and, in my opinion, the best ménage stories are the one where we see the relationship beyond the sex. I’ve had to […]

Celebrating Romance : Maria Vale introduces Silver and Tiberius from The Last Wolf (incl. Giveaway)

  It was Leonora Jeansdottir who first introduced me to the Great North Pack. The Pack’s Human Behaviors teacher, she felt that it was time to introduce the Pack to humans. Come out of hiding, even if only in “fiction.” This pack lives and has lived for 350 years in what is now call the Adirondacks. They are not werewolves. I made the mistake of calling them that early on and Leonora snapped at me. […]

Celebrating Romance 2018 : Author interview from Vanessa North

Why do you read Romance? I’ve always loved romance novels—for me, it’s the exploration of relationships that attracts me to the genre. Not just romantic love, but familial and also platonic relationships as well. In a romance novel, the character interactions take center stage. Other genres tend to be more plot driven, and that’s fine! It’s just not my jam. What was the first romance book you read? I believe it was Twice Loved by […]
