Laura on her red BMW R100M named Elvis
I ride a motorcycle. A lot. I rode 100,000 miles behind my husband before learning to ride my own. I’ve since logged 100,000 miles on my two: A red BMW R100M named Elvis, and a bumblebee yellow BMW R1100 named, Sting.
Camping in Utah with a motorcycle camping trailer
I’m so grateful for our motorcycles, because through our trips, I’ve gotten to know the small Western towns in my books’ settings. I could have traveled to all these places in a car. But in a car we generally tend to Go Somewhere. On the bike, we didn’t go looking for them; we happened upon most of the above places on our way to somewhere else. And I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything! Like:

Did you spend the whole week making A Deal With Benefits?
Here's what you missed on the RT website:
The Internet is full of hilarious gems and memorable words of wisdom from the masses. Authors, readers and publishers on Twitter are no exception and continuously put smiles on the faces of Twitter users daily in 140 characters or less. We've started compiling out favorite Tweets, and this week we bring you a special YA version of Tweethearts, featuring YA authors and industry folk who made us giggle.
Ah, shiny baubles. Whether you’re ogling Jennifer Aniston’s eight-carat diamond (or, yannow, her fiancé’s abs) or just the sparkler on your own hand, there’s something about jewelry, isn’t there? Which is why Sabrina Jeffries’s latest heroine, diamond jeweler Isabella Cale, so caught our attention in the RT Top Pick! When the Rogue Returns. Sabrina’s here today to tell about the prettiest royal gems she covets.
Even though I gave the profession of diamond jeweler to my heroine in my second book in my Duke’s Men series, I’m not actually that fond of diamonds (I prefer colored gemstones). But it’s hard not to love this sweet little crown of Queen Victoria’s, which I first saw at the Tower of London’s crown jewels exhibit.
Victoria had it made because the larger crown was so heavy that it plagued her with headaches. She also wanted to wear it over her mourning veil, and, unlike colored stones, diamonds could be worn for mourning back then. Of course, “small” doesn’t mean quite the same thing to a Royal—this darling crown contains 1187 diamonds!
Let’s be honest: nicknames are rather awesome. We have “McDreamy” and “McSteamy” from Grey’s Anatomy, “Kitten” from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Lux series — and this month’s historical recommendations offer up even more epic monikers. While browsing through our favorite picks, think of an awesome nickname for your RT Web Team, because we’re feeling left out!
To start things off, Alison DeLaine makes a sensational debut with A Gentleman ‘Til Midnight, in which Lady Katherine Kinloch is not just any ordinary lady — she’s also known as Corsair Kate, an infamous sea captain. Between trying to save her family’s estate and rejoicing in her hard-won freedom, Katherine manages to save a man from the sea. Captain James Warre doesn’t realize his savior is the same woman he helped capture. When he does, he assumes a new identity as the two struggle to fight off mutual attraction.
Kids today! Think they’ve got it so hard. Well, today Sharon Biggs Waller, author of A Mad, Wicked Folly, is here to set them straight. See, things were a lot more stringent for those adolescents coming of age in 1909. School us, Sharon!

If you were a teen in the Edwardian era, your social class was unbending. What you did in life depended on how you were born: working class, middle class (lower, middle, and upper), and the aristocracy.
Nick names, nuh uh!
Unless you were in the working class, you could forget about calling your friends by nicknames. In fact, you were forbidden to use first names unless the other girl or boy “proposed,” a close friendship, which meant you could now use first names. Until then, Elizabeth Morris remained Miss Morris to you. Or if she were an aristocrat, you’d address her as Lady Elizabeth.
Sorry for party rocking. (Seriously, you are in so much trouble young lady.)
