Excerpt of Brianna by Linda Andrews!

Excerpt:
“Brianna, can ye hear me?” Panic fed the primal rage bucking through Duncan. He bound the fury. A treasury agent had nerves of tempered steel, control of iron. A white lock rested on her pale cheek. Peppermint-scented breath slipped past pink lips. She was fine. She had fainted, nothing more. Nothing more. Yet she had not wakened. “I had thought she would be accustomed to violence, especially after the tales she told of Arizona.” Miss Phillips’s whine sliced through his musings. A man had been murdered, poisoned in front of a roomful of wealthy, influential witnesses. August would have been the likely suspect—it was his valet, after all. Except, he couldn’t have known his servant would be in the room, let alone would drink from the glass. So who was the intended victim? He laid Brianna on the plush carpet and knelt beside her. He brushed her bangs out of her eye, sweeping aside the feather headdress. And who was the poisoner? He might have spied something if he hadn’t dallied ove…

Interview with Lenore Wolfe, author of Dark Warrior: To Tame a Wild Hawk!

Please help me welcome author Lenore Wolfe to Reading with Holly today!
Holly: Hi Lenore! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Lenore Wolfe: I grew up in Montana and Alaska. In Montana, my great-grandmother was one of the many pioneer women who made her way in the Wild West. She worked. She toiled. She raised three children on her own when her drunk husband took off and left her in the the small town of York, Montana. And I quickly learned a small child--she may have been under five foot tall, but even in her eighties and nineties, you didn't want to let that fool you--for her spirit, her fight, far out-weighed anyone I had known, then, or since. She was, and still is, the toughest lady I have ever met. And whenever there were times in my life, whenever I thought my own journey had become much too tough, I would stop and think--how on earth had she done it? I would think about all the brave women who helped to make America, and I would be inspired--never quit. Never say di…

Are we done being ashamed of what we read? by Cassandra Carr

Please help me welcome author Cassandra Carr to the blog today! :) With the recent popularity of The Trilogy that Shall Not Be Named, the fact that women read - and like - erotic romance is coming out in the mainstream press. But how are women reading the aforementioned books? While enough paperbacks have been sold to suggest there are women willing to be seen reading These Books, the fact we're in the Digital Age cannot be overlooked. For every woman sitting in a Starbucks reading Those Books, there are also women sitting in that same Starbucks with their e-reader, glancing furtively around every few minutes.
Full disclosure: I have a Kindle Fire (I love you, hubs!) and I use it almost exclusively for my reading now. But it's not because I'm ashamed. It's because it's easier. Did I openly read erotic romances before I had an ereader? You'd better believe it! Now, I'm not saying you have to. I would never try to make someone uncomfortable by forcing them into…
