Wedding season is not over in Marietta yet and my guest today is another wonderful Tule author who has contributed so much to our wedding fun this year. Please help me welcome the lovely Kat Latham to JaneBlog! Here’s Kat to talk about Wedding Memories and her new release, Two Nights With His Bride! ~ For a romance author, I’m surprisingly pragmatic about weddings. I didn’t grow up dreaming about my wedding day. I don’t think I ever looked at bridal magazines till I started writing Two Nights with His Bride. When I got engaged in 2005, I picked out my wedding dress within about an hour of shopping with my mom. I think I tried on only four dresses. … Continue reading Kat Latham: Wedding Memories

My readers know I’m a travel junkie. It’s my parents fault. They loved to travel and they would take us, their four kids, on as many adventures as they could. Thanks to my parents influence, I knew when I was in high school that I wanted to be a writer, and a traveler. I couldn’t imagine being tied to a desk job without any freedom. Fortunately, one of my first jobs out of college was working for a small regional airline (later bought by American Airlines) and my job was to sell these commuter planes, introducing them to travel agents and the public in the San Joaquin Valley. Metroliners were small, narrow, just 19 seats with no flight attendant or … Continue reading Travel Junkie

I think everyone knows that I find most of my favorite new authors through Megan Crane who knows great books, as well as my taste in books—emotional, tautly paced, compelling, and incredibly satisfying–and she raved about Dani Collins‘ first Harlequin Presents, insisting I read it. And Megan was right. It was fantastic. And so of course later, when Tule was founded and Tule was hungry for wonderful, compelling, sexy stories, we all thought of Dani. As part of my holiday countdown, I’ve invited Dani to join me on my JaneBlog, to talk about her Christmas story, and the connected stories she’s writing for Montana Born. Thank you, Dani Collins for joining us! I’m so delighted to have you here. – If you’ve … Continue reading Dani Collins: Community
I became a huge fan of New Zealand author, Jackie Ashenden, the very first time I read one of her books. Her strong writing style coupled with a sharp wit and intense, sexy characters made it all too easy to get hooked. Then Jackie wrote Never Seduce A Sheikh, featuring a bad boy who is also a Sheikh… two of my very favorite types of heroes rolled into one. Isma’il is a delicious bad boy and so very easy to fall in love with! What more could a girl ask for? Jackie and I had a quick chat about Never Seduce a Sheikh and bad boys and here’s what she had to say — Okay so I LOVE a bad boy. Especially their flaws because … Continue reading Jackie Ashenden: Sheikhs are the Ultimate Fantasy

Last week I met Katherine Garbera‘s billionaire hero, Sebastian Warren from No Rest For The Wicked. What an interesting experience it was! He’s hot and delicious and completely intriguing. With over sixty books to her name, Katherine Garbera always has awesome ideas for stories and I invited her to share more about the idea behind No Rest For the Wicked. Katherine Garbera on the ‘why’ behind her bad boy story… Sebastian had everything ripped from under him when his car crashed and his best friend died. Left grappling with a lot of questions as to why he’s still alive and Judd isn’t, he runs as fast as he can to ignore them. He’s living his life for two now, making sure that … Continue reading Katherine Garbera’s inspiration for a Wicked Bad Boy
I can be such a book girl sometimes, nothing makes me happier than talking books and themes. One of my favorite themes is second chances and that’s partly why I’ve really enjoyed Tule’s Homecoming series. Have you read any of the Homecoming books yet? Eve Gaddy‘s novella, Sing Me Back Home kicked off the Homecoming series. I read it some weeks ago but still find myself thinking about Jack and Maya. Such a sweet, delightful story about second chances and full of strong characters, it’s a quick read and has a good dose of humor and heat too. Eve was kind enough to sit down to a quick Q&A with me about Sing Me Back Home — What did you love best about the idea … Continue reading Eve Gaddy’s Sing Me Back Home
I’ve had my head down a lot lately, trying to get some serious writing done and while I do try to be good and not get distracted, sometimes a girl just can’t help it. Especially if she’s got great author friends who insist on writing fabulously yummy stories about delicious Bad Boys. If you’ve been keeping up with the Bad Boy books from Tule’s Holiday imprint, you’ll understand exactly what I mean. It’s hard to ignore them. They look so sinfully irresistible, standing there on the cover, whispering ‘come closer’. And Kelly Hunter‘s bad boy, Caleb Jackson from Sympathy for the Devil fits the bill so perfectly! It got me thinking about all bad boys and why so many of us find … Continue reading Kelly Hunter on the Appeal of Bad Boys
