Where do you like to read romance novels? In bed? In the bath? On the couch while your significant other watches a boring movie? How about in public? If your reading time is during your daily commute, at Gymboree or while you're enjoying a quiet lunch solo, we want to see it! So we're launching the #PublicDisplayofRomance campaign. See, we think the days of hiding romances are long gone. Not just because of ereaders, but because you should be proud of what you're reading. Wave your romance reader flag high, folks! We want to see it! Which is why we're asking readers to tag themselves reading romances — in print or on their ereader — in public.
It's time to party, let's party, we're gonna have a party tonight! And by party we mean: settle in with some wine and our weekend reads. We might wear party hats, too, after the week we've had. To celebrate two glorious days of freedom we're offering five paperback copies of Shannon K. Butcher's latest Sentinel Wars novel, Willing Sacrifice. Because who can resist a hero wielding a giant sword? Fans of the series can finally enjoy Theronai warrior Torr and human Grace's story, and we know how satisfying it is getting the story of a couple you've been waiting forever and ever for. This tale contains a loyal hero, a heroine who will do anything to keep her man safe and even a bit of amnesia!
Want to check it out for yourself? We've got five print copies to give away! Enter below, and then have yourself a wonderful weekend. This giveaway is open to U.S. readers only. Good luck!
Kim Harrison’s 12th Hollows novel featuring witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan is out this week, and if you think The Undead Pool is full of dangerous waters, you don’t know the half of it — because this book sees Rachel and elven leader Trent Kalamack jumping into the deep end of romance!
There's nothing like a cover reveal to brighten up a Wednesday! Today we bring you the cover of Night's Honor, Thea Harrison's next Elder Races novel, releasing in September. It's no secret we're a big fan of Harrison's Elder Races series, which had featured some truly interesting shapeshifters and smoking hot romance. Her upcoming tale focuses on the Nightkind region of the Elder Races, which means vampire romance fans will be in for a treat!
In Bitten 1.07, “Stalking,” we diverge from book canon and from vests.
Although Karen Marie Moning's fan favorite antihero Jericho Barrons didn't win the final round of our Book Boyfriend Smack Down a few weeks ago, all you Barrons fans sure put up one heck of a fight!

The sixth in Moning's popular Fever series, Iced released in 2012 (the paperback version releases today), but if you're absolutely dying for a signed copy (and what fan wouldn't be?), here's your chance! Simply fill out the widget below for your chance to win. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends Thursday, February 26. Good luck!
Today we're pleased to reveal the video trailer for Lynn Viehl's upcoming Disenchanted & Co. steampunk tale, The Clockwork Wolf, just in time for the book's release next Tuesday. So relax, grab a snack and enjoy!
Back cover blurb:
As the proprietor of Disenchanted & Co. in a steampunk version of America, Charmian “Kit” Kittredge makes her living solving magical crimes. But when a snobbish lady begs for help, saving her reputation might very well cost Kit her life.
Doing a favor for deathmage Lucien Dredmore, Kit agrees to interview a newly widowed lady as a potential client. Upon meeting, however, she learns that the woman in question is none other than Lady Eugenia Bestly, president of the Rumsen Ladies Decency Society— someone who once led a vicious campaign to ruin Kit’s life. Ironically Lady Bestly now lives in fear herself, for the press is about to unmask her husband as the savage “Wolfman” who died while terrorizing the city.

In Bitten 1x06, “Committed,” Elena dons a bridesmaid’s gown and body parts get removed (not by her).
We open on Elena and Philip reveling in two days’ worth of reunion sex and talking about Becky’s wedding — and we learn they don’t live together! (I officially give up pondering where/why/how Elena hangs her hat.) More Snuggles of Wolf Denial continue as, back in Bear Valley, Jeremy and Clay discuss the mutt menaces. Jeremy mentions Nick talking to their allies, the Stillwells, in D.C., and Clay dubs them traitors. Yes, Clay is just crankypants because Elena left. Jeremy assures him she’ll be back and then finds a stranger on his doorstep: Samuel Boggs, a wolf who’s heard the Alpha is weak and is spoiling for a fight. Clay’s happy to give it to him, breaking his nose and tossing him out.
