Did you spend your whole week looking for a Model Marine?
Here’s what you missed on the RT Website.
The Multi-Millionaire’s Virgin Mistress, The Infamous Italian’s Secret Baby, The Virgin Secretary’s Impossible Boss, The Secret Mistress Arrangement, other than a whole lot of secrets, mistresses and virgins, what do all of these book titles have in common? You won’t be seeing any upcoming Harlequin series romances with this type of of title. Recently the behemoth romance publisher has moved away from the racier, giggle-inducing types of names they’ve used for years, in order to showcase these books in a different light. To find out more about this shift in titles, I contacted several series romance authors and asked them the process they went through in order to name their recent books.
Today marks the final day of Banned Books Week, when booklovers celebrate intellectual freedom, the ability to read whatever their hearts desires and the protections granted by the First Amendment.

The American Library Association’s Banned Book Week runs from September 24, 2011 - September 29, 2011. This awareness campaign, held annually since 1982, celebrates our freedom to read.

Haunting the Night by Mara Purnhagen
I’m on the fence when it comes to messing with some of my favorite plotlines, characters and settings in the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres. In some instances, I’m a die-hard traditionalist. (Fast-moving zombies? No thanks, I’ll take Night of the Living Dead zombies over 28 Days Later zombies any day.) Still, it’s always refreshing to come across a work of fiction that provides an original spin on standard storyline.
Earlier this month, fantasy author Jeff VanderMeer challenged his readers to come up with a list of the most commonly used clichés in sci fi, fantasy, and horror fiction, and it got me to thinking. I always appreciate a classic young hero embarking on an epic adventure, the underdog rising to defeat the villain and a good old-fashioned ghost story, but what are the contemporary works I'd suggest for people looking to read (or watch) this story in a new light? To that end, I’ve selected one of my favorite tropes for each genre from the pool of comments on VanderMeer’s blog post and have listed my favorite classic and modern re-tellings of each cliché ...
This week we are Dishing about Courtney Milan’s latest historical romance, Unclaimed. A twist on the playboy hero and innocent heroine, Milan’s Sir Mark Turner is known for his chastity, while Jessica Farleigh is an experienced courtesan. Interested in this role reversal, we decided to dig deep and see if Jessica’s reputation could be redeemed or if she instead would jeopardize Mark’s standing in society.
Morgan: I’ve definitely never gone looking for a book with a courtesan heroine before, but I am so glad that we picked up Courtney Milan’s newest. It is very different from other historical tales because of the great characters.
Whitney: This is actually the second book that I have read this month with a “worldly” heroine, the other being Suzanne Enoch’s upcoming A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes. I really appreciate how Milan and Enoch’s heroines have a bit more edge to them, then say, a debutante fresh out of the schoolroom. These ladies know what they want and are going to do whatever it takes to reach their goals.
Morgan: Well, in Unclaimed, Jessica certainly isn’t going to let anything stand in the way of getting out of “the biz”.
