Kelly Rimmer | Writing About a Soon-to-Be-Divorced Couple
Author Guest / November 19, 2019

UNSPOKEN is about Paul and Isabel, who have been married for several years but are now just days away from divorce. In this book, I wanted to explore the ways that while opposites often attract in the first flush of love, they can later cause distance in a relationship if they don’t acknowledge them and work through them. Romances generally end at the ‘happily-ever-after’–but it’s actually the case that once a couple decides they want to build a life together, the real work must begin. It may be true that love is one of the very best and most important things in life, but it rarely comes easy, even within a marriage between two committed parties. In the case of Paul and Isabel, we have a couple who face serious communication challenges. Their inability to really hear one another has led to a relationship implosion, but with neither really understanding exactly what went wrong between them, they’ve fallen into a pattern where they simply blame one another for their unhappiness. Paul feels blindsided by Isabel’s decision to leave and he resents that she would walk away without trying to repair their relationship, but at the very same time, Isabel is…

Melonie Johnson | My HEA Was a Second Chance Romance
Author Guest / June 18, 2019

The third book in my Sometimes in Love series, ONCE UPON A BAD BOY, is a second chance romance. Bo and Sadie, the hero and heroine, are childhood sweethearts who break apart as teens, but fate brings them together again eleven years later. I dedicated this story to my husband. It’s an appropriate choice, since our marriage is the result of a second chance romance. Well, since we broke up twice, it’s technically a third chance romance. But what’s that saying about the third time being the charm? When I met my husband when we were teenagers, like Bo, he was kind of a bad boy himself. A bit of a rebel who had long hair down to his waist and drove a brazen bright yellow car that he would park at wild angles in the back of the mall where we both worked. That lot was always almost empty, he wasn’t a jerk, he just liked to push the envelope on the rules, see what he could get away with. A trait (thank you, karma) our youngest daughter has inherited. Our oldest daughter is sixteen, the same age I was when I began dating my husband. I admit, the…

Leigh Lennon | Author-Reader Match
Author Guest / February 6, 2019

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match” where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present LEIGH LENNON! Writes: I write many different types of romances. I’ve never been able to stick to one of anything. I don’t have a favorite color, I have two or three. I don’t own just one comforter for my bed because that would be too much of a commitment. I don’t marry my purse, I date them. Again, the commitment is too much! So, why would I stick to one genre within romance? My books include humor and back and forth banter. It also contains relevant pop fiction. Some may have angst, where others are sweet. But all my romances include swoon-worthy men who would give their lives for their women. If you like to be surprised at the end of the book and love a powerful hero who’d do anything for his gal, I’m the author for you. My most recent release is coming Jan 31, Must Love Coffee, A 425 Madison Avenue Novel. About: Passionate writer and mother of…
