Girlfriends We Need

by Suzanne WelshThere’s an e-mail that’s been passed around for years that I periodically receive. It talks about the girlfriends we have in our lives and how they serve to help us through different stages and problems we encounter along life’s journey. Every time this pops up in my e-mail, (often from my mom or one of those girlfriends), it always makes me smile, get a little teary-eyed and think of those women who have come to mean so much to me. So, here’s my list of women: 1) My mom. Yep, she’s one special lady and I’m lucky enough

Love to hate you, baby

by Susan Sey We recently joined the YMCA, & the whole family is IN LOVE. Oh, yes. We love our Y. For my kids, the love has a whole lot to do with an indoor swimming pool & water slide. For my husband, it’s a structured time & place to work out that comes complete with a video screen six inches from his face.For me, it’s BOSU Boot Camp. Ever seen a BOSU? It looks like this: It’s a combination strength/aerobics class that works sort of like step aerobics, only instead of stepping up on a flat, steady bench, you

Drifting to the Dark Side

by Nancy I was seriously tempted to blame this blog on Anna Campbell.  Her tortured heroes and tormented heroines make for darker reading (although fabulous!) than I usually think of when romance comes to mind, and I find myself reading darker books lately than I once did.   The change struck me when I finished Tempt the Devil.  I loved it but realized it was a far darker book than I’d thought of myself as liking.   When I looked back, however, I realized my drift toward the Dark Side of the Force started a long time ago.  I just

Deadline Musings

By Kate I’m writing to you from Deadline Hell, an actual place located hundreds of miles beneath the earth in the depths of the Cave of Desperation. The reason I’m here is that I’m racing to finish my second book, due in just a few weeks. I’m sure I won’t make it on time. I know everything I’m writing is dreck. And why am I italicizing words for emphasis? I’ve forgotten how to write. Gah! I’m stressed out and not sleeping well. I’m forgetful and prickly. I don’t know what I’m doing and don’t know where I’m going. My butt

My Space vs. Facebook

by KJ Howe Please welcome author Elizabeth Naughton to the lair. Today’s topic–My Space vs. Facebook–should stir up some fascinating discussions. Take it away, Elizabeth! Thanks to KJ and everyone at the Romance Bandits for having me here today. My first book, STOLEN FURY, released in January 2009. It’s a sexy romantic adventure about an archaeologist on the hunt for three ancient Greek reliefs, and the rogue thief who steals from her. They soon learn they have to work together to find the remaining relics if either want to succeed, and that they aren’t the only ones on the hunt…other

Thank you, thank you, thank you…

by Donna MacMeans So did you watch the academy awards last night? I had planned to – if only to watch Hugh Jackman, but alas – I missed the first hour. I did get to see some of the more memorable acceptance speeches though. I liked the one – I believe it was Danny Boyle accepting yet another oscar for Slumdog Millionaire (which was a fabulous movie!) – and he jumped up and down as he imagined Tigger would do. Now I realize most of the acceptance speeches are pretty boring, especially to those of us that are not on

Choices Choices!

by Anna Sugden Some of the strongest and most vehement debates I’ve ever heard have been about certain choices. Not political choices or religious choices. Male choices. When I was younger, there were a number of them: Paul Macartney vs John Lennon Beatles vs Rolling Stones (okay, so there is the music thing there too *g*) Donny Osmond vs David Cassidy Starsky vs Hutch The Hardy Boys (Parker Stevenson vs Shaun Cassidy) Body vs Doyle (from an English series called The Professionals) Richard Chamberlain vs Bryan Brown in The Thorn Birds. Take your pick of the Brat Pack! [FYI –

When Things Go Boom

by Jo Robertson I have a confession to make. I enjoying watching things go boom – in movies, on television, in books – the bigger and louder, the better. This isn’t a very feminine admission, but there it is. I know many women don’t. But, as Gaby, Jeffrey Donavan’s somewhat crazy ex-girlfriend, says on BURN NOTICE, “Women find it sexy when things go boom.” Uh, she may not have been talking about bombs and missiles and firecrackers, but the principle’s the same. When the newest James Bond (Daniel Craig) blows things up – cars, factories, people, it’s always the bad

They’re Playing Our Song

by Beth Nothing takes me back to a certain time and/or place quicker than a song. When I hear Rick Springfield’s Jessie’s Girl, I’m whisked back to when I was 10 and would sing and dance along with cutie Rick, using a hairbrush as a microphone *g* Broken Wings by Mr. Mister (I always thought that was an…interesting…band name *g*) takes me back to Junior High School and my first real heartbreak. Even though it’s been many (and I mean MANY) years since I was 14, hearing this song still gets me melancholy! High School was all about AC/DC (Highway
