A Dream of Desire
by Nina Rowan

                       

With its Dickensian backdrop, suspense, passion and edge-of- seat danger, Rowan’s latest is a thought-provoking romance that forces readers to see the darkness under the glittering world of wealth and title. Strong characters and a taut plotline keep readers engrossed as Rowan builds the tension to a perfect pitch before leading Talia and James to the HEA.

Take My Breath Away
by Christie Ridgway

                        

What an awesome start to the Cabin Fever series! Ridgway’s latest is heartwarming, extremely romantic and one of those books that will make you feel tingly all over. The alpha hero is smoking hot and he lingers on one’s mind longer than expected. Readers may be surprised at how close in similarity the characters are to themselves or their friends. Take My Breath Away is an all-around great read that will have you wishing you were curled up by the fire in a mountainside cabin.


Love stories amidst pulse-pounding action and danger.

Deeper Than Need
by Shiloh Walker

           

This is a novel full of tension: There is lots of sexual tension, which makes the romance more real, and there is the tension of a slowly revealed evil, which lurks beneath, bubbling under the entire plotline. The characters lack some of the crystallized focus that is so lovely in many of Walker’s works, but this is book one in a series, so we can expect more details later.

Julia London's Guide To San Antonio

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, JULY 22, 2014 | PERMALINK

If you're in San Antonio for RWA, you might appreciate an insider's guide on what to do, what to see and, most importantly, where to eat. And what better guide than romance author and San Antonio native Julia London? Today the author shares her favorite go-to spots for fun in the Alamo City.

If you’re like a lot of people I meet, the only thing you know about San Antonio is the battle of the Alamo, and you probably think the actual Alamo is a lot bigger than it really is. You’ll see for yourself: The Alamo is a short walk from the conference hotel, and a whole lot smaller than Hollywood has made it.

It seems to me San Antonio doesn’t get the buzz other cities in Texas get (hello, Austin), but it is truly one of our most unique cities. I love the laid-back, Latin American, tropical vibe. But at the same time, the city is also progressively urban. In town for a day or a week, here are a few suggestions for what to see and do:
