Hi everyone!  Julie Ann Walker here, tickled pink to be back on Romancing the Book and talking about my upcoming title, the eight in the Black Knights Inc. series, TOO HARD TO HANDLE.

Now, we all know what to expect in a romantic suspense novel, right?  There will be action and adventure, daring and danger, romance and sssssteamy sexy times.  And red-hot alpha men who have really big…  Guns!  I was going to say “guns”, I swear!  *wink*  But what doesn’t immediately come to mind when the phrase “romantic suspense” gets bandied about are the kickbutt women between the covers of the books.  And I’m here today, standing proud and saying loud that “I LOVE A BADASS BROAD!”

Which is probably why I write them.

Ellen ButlerI’d like to begin by thanking Jen at Romancing the Book for having me. I always enjoy reaching out to new readers. For you Romancing the Book fans, I’ve decided to share my Top 5 Places to Visit Before I Kick the Bucket. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to a number of fabulous cities here in the United States as well as internationally, but there are still a number of places and wonders of the world I would love to see.

Top 5 Places I Need to Visit Before Heading to the Big Spa in the Sky

5.  Portland, Oregon – I’ve never been to the Pacific Northwest, and I have relatives who live there. (I know, shame on me.) So, Portland will hopefully happen sooner rather than later.

4.  Hawaii – I’m addicted to the HGTV show Hawaii Life. Each week I jealously watch strangers purchase half-million dollar shoeboxes and I want to be them. I mean, really, who doesn’t want to spend a few weeks in paradise, much less the rest of their lives?

3.  Amsterdam – When I was in grad school I bypassed a chance to spend a semester in the Netherlands in order to graduate early. Yup, you guessed it, one of the biggest regrets of my life. What was I thinking? I’ve traveled all over Europe but still haven’t gotten to Amsterdam. Now it’s a nagging little voice in the back of my head that I’d love check off the bucket list.

2.  Argentina – When my father was a child he spent his childhood years growing up in Buenos Aires, and a few years ago he returned for a visit. The stories I grew up with, along with the photos from his recent trip,make me long to see the Spanish-style architecture and embrace the laid-back culture. Long live tango!

Maeve GraysonJen:  Today we welcome Maeve Greyson to Romancing the Book.  Maeve, will you share a short bio with us?
Maeve:  No one has the power to shatter your dreams unless you give it to them. That’s been Maeve Greyson’s mantra since she was a girl. When she’s not at the full time day job at the steel mill, Maeve’s writing romances about sexy Highlanders and the women who tame them. Tucked away in a five acre wood, Maeve listens to the wind singing through the trees and hears her characters telling their stories. Her work is proofed by her sharp-eyed dog, Jasper, and her greatest supporter is her long suffering husband of over thirty-five years who’s learned not to throw away any odd sticky notes filled with strange phrases.
