Top 5 Favorite Dance Memories

In THE SWEET SPOT, heroine Helen Anne Reed realizes she hasn’t danced since her wedding more than a decade ago. Since then, she’s been inundated with life’s sobering moments—a bitter divorce, raising her daughter on her own, struggling to make her business a success, and her father’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis. She doesn’t have much to dance about until baseball player and former ballroom dancer Giovanni Caceres shows up. Helen Anne made me think about my life and the times I’ve had the chance to dance.

Top 5 List & Contest: Jennifer Shirk

My Top Five Holiday Foods!

Hi, all! Jennifer here. I’m so happy to be here today on release day of my new Christmas romance, WRONG BROTHER, RIGHT MATCH.

One of the things I noticed about my new book is that a lot of it revolves around baking, eating, or drinking lots of hot chocolate. LOL! But isn’t food a great part of the holidays? I definitely think so.  Especially because some of my favorite foods  only come around this time of year.

Top 5 List: Katy Swann

I’m a married mother of three, born in Copenhagen, Denmark and now living in Kent, UK.  I write BDSM romance and love to show the reader that a D/s relationship can be beautiful, sexy and romantic.

My new book, Behind the Scenes, tells the story of Evie, a ballet dancer, who had to give up dancing because of an injury.  She meets successful rock star, Aaron, but takes an immediate dislike to him because she assumes he’s an arrogant womaniser who could potentially break her heart.
