Men Of Sports!

by Suzanne Before I go any further, I’d like to announce that the pitchers and catchers have reported to spring training!! Whoohooo! The boys of summer are almost back! Can you tell I adore baseball? I’m married to a Cleveland Indians fanatic, so I watch 161 games a year. I kid you not! But luckily for me, the scenery isn’t too hard on the eyes. There’s Grady Sizemore out in Centerfield. He’s beautiful and beautiful to watch, especially when he’s stretched out going for a fly ball. They guy simply loves to play the sport and goes all out. And

Cruising Into Spring

by Caren CraneRegulars here in the Lair know I am a devotee of autumn. I love the crisp air, colorful leaves and “settling in” that happens as the Earth prepares for winter. I also enjoy winter and have made a complete and total fool of myself during the Winter Olympics. (Anyone care to discuss curling? I’m now an expert! I could hardly get this post done for the women’s gold medal final. Canada broke my heart!) Okay, gold medalist Apolo Ohno was just here as your daily eye candy. *g* This year, though, it has been colder and snowier than

Love in Boom

by Nancy Anybody else here like a romance with some non-romantic boom in it? Where things blow up apart from the relationship? And somehow all that leads to HEA? Yeah, me, too. I tried out various titles for this blog, including “boom in love,” but Demetrius started snickering at that and other choices, and then Sven joined in. The two of them set aside their sibling-esque rivalry in favor of male bonding, which would’ve been nice had it not involved mockery of my blog titles. I’m never composing another blog where they can see it in progress. I’ll do that

Hot Men of History

by Kate Carlisle In Scotland and around the world, January 25th was Burns Night. Copious amounts of whiskey are required, but it’s not called “Burns Night” because of the way the whiskey burns your throat. No, it’s named for the man to whom the glasses are raised: the poet Robert Burns. Rabbie Burns was born on that day in 1759 and, in a short 37-year life, he became a Scottish icon. The ploughman’s poet. We did Burns Night up big in the Carlisle household. We followed almost all of the traditions. We recited our favorite Burns poems, ate cock-a-leekie soup,

THE CALL!!!

by KJ Howe In the lair, nothing makes us more excited than a recounting of THE CALL, a new author’s dream phone call. Please welcome debut author Skyler White as she shares her fantastic story! I’ll be at the store … I was pushing a cart out of the Costco in south Austin when I got The Call. I had my receipt in one hand, held out for the folks with the pink Sharpies, and had to wedge my cell phone between my shoulder and ear to have a hand free for cart-steering. Holly Root – my agent for all

The Writer’s (fat) Life

by Donna MacMeansLet’s face it. The writer’s life is a pretty sedentary one. While my heroine might be dancing away at a ball, or my hero chasing a bad guy down a dark alley, I am seated at a chair, typing away. My fingers get quite a workout, but the rest of me – not so much. So what’s a fat writer to do? I’m not an expert, but I have managed to shed about 10 pounds in the last month or so. I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing and I’m hoping you’ll share what works for you.

Omelettes, redheads and well-hung neatniks … oh my!

by Anna Sugden I’m a romance reader. I love them. I will defend them, as well as my right to read one in public without embarrassment, to the death. If there’s one hot button I have (okay I have several, but that’s not the point!) it’s people who diss romance novels with all that stuff about romances being formulaic, cliched, trashy, pornographic, blah, bah, blah. You notice they never talk about things like sales and popularity and being great reads! As author Sarah Duncan (http://www.sarahduncan.co.uk/) wrote in a fab article recently – I’m paraphrasing – just because they’re easy to

An Interview with Janet Mullany

by Christie KelleyI have to start by saying I’ve known Janet for about 8 years now. She is one of my critique partners and one of my favorite authors. Because of deadlines, I didn’t have the chance to read her February release, IMPROPER RELATIONS, until a week ago. But once I started the book, I couldn’t put it down. I ended up reading it in one day. That pretty much never happens for me any more.Please welcome Janet to the lair! What can you tell us about your latest book, Improper Relations? It’s my latest Regency chicklit, the subgenre I

The Race For Gold

by Beth Though I live in a Northwestern Pennsylvania, I don’t like cold weather. Or snow. Or most activities taking place outside (in the cold *g*) or having to do with snow. The one time I went downhill skiing many, MANY years ago, I had such a horrible time, I swore I’d never go again (a promise I’ve gladly kept). I enjoy sled-riding but only to a point – that point usually being the same time all that cold snow blows into my face, down my coat collar and soaks through my mittens. Then I’m more than happy to head
