BY , FEBRUARY 13, 2013 | PERMALINK

Rough, tough and rugged, cowboys may not immediately scream "romance" (although, let's be honest, they definitely scream "sexy"), but author Jennifer Ryan thinks a cowboy makes the perfect valentine. Specifically Jack Turner, the hero of her latest contemporary romance, Saved by the Rancher. So how would this cowboy treat his special lady Valentine's Day? The author shares:

I love cowboys. This Valentine's Day, wouldn't you like one to show up at your door, a fistful of wildflowers, and smile all for you?

What is it that makes them so sexy?

BY , FEBRUARY 07, 2013 | PERMALINK

SAS commando turned bodyguard, the bad guys would definitely not want to meet Lexxie Couper's newest hero, Aslin, in a dark alley. But the same can't be said for heroine Rowan.

Pick Your Pleasure With Erotica Author Jayne Rylon

BY , FEBRUARY 04, 2013 | PERMALINK

For her very first self-published book, award-winning erotica author Jayne Rylon has done something truly unique. Instead of writing linear story requiring a passive reader, she has created a book where you get to Pick Your Pleasure! Interested in learning more about this digital experiment gone right? Today the author stops by the RT blog to explain just how her book works and answer our questions.

Thanks so much for inviting me over to talk about my favorite experiment! I have to admit the idea for this book came from my brother. He called me from a bar in NYC, where he was out with a group of his friends, late last year and told me they'd come up with a "great idea" for a book.  I wasn't convinced. Until he told me what it was. A book like the ones we'd had as kids, where the readers get to decide what happens in the story (except in Pick Your Pleasure there's no path that leads to violent death, which always seemed to be an option in the old ones).
