July 23, 2014 - 12:00pmSince rules were made to be broken, we're doing a little something different for Hump Day this week. Instead of a steamy excerpt from an erotic romance, we've got scene from Katy Evans' upcoming New Adult novel Rogue. But let's be real, we all know New Adult can get pretty hot and heavy. This scene from Rogue is so tantilizing, Katy's publicist confessed it left her red-faced in her cubicle. So clearly we had to share it with you. Greyson ... we just, we have no words. Enjoy!“Leave it on,” he murmurs, then he rolls me onto my back and yanks my arms up over my head. “But I want to touch you,” I breathe, undulating my body against the weight of his.
July 23, 2014 - 11:33amWhile Lauren Dane's The Best Kind of Trouble, the first in her new Hurley Boys series, doesn't hit shelves until next month, I'm already counting down the days until the sequel, Broken Open, releases. The moment I saw the cover, I fell in love. It's not often you see an interracial couple on a mainstream romance cover, so for that alone it's a winner. But the premise is equally as intriguing - especially the hero, musician and rancher Ezra - which makes this a book I have to read.

After an empty, nomadic existence, she’s finally pieced her life back together in the small Oregon town of Hood River. Now Tuesday has everything sorted out.

Today, she continues her good luck with the lovely cover for her upcoming book, Dream A Little Dream, the first in the Silver Trilogy — and we have the exclusive reveal. Let's take a look!Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yes, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially the one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys conduct dark magic rituals.
