About Me

My photo
I love romance and writing it is one of my greatest pleasures. Along with writing romance, I love sitting back and talking with authors that love romance just as much as I do. Since I've been reading romance since I was sixteen years old I am a book lover that still reads lots of books in a month. So, weekly I will also post my book picks. They may be picks that are new releases or maybe a favorite book of mine. On this blog you will see books featured by ALL romance genres.

Christmas with Yvette and Friends

The weather outside is frightful...the fire is so delightful...and your family has finally gone home or another room to give you some peace. Phew! So, you can now curl up with great holiday reads. After indulging in ham, cookies, eggnog, veggies and more...feast on romance. That's right, Yvette Hines and her friends are inviting you to dive into the season the way you have been dreaming about all year.

This is where holiday and romance collide...

Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. Maybe because I've always thought anything was possible. Not like getting presents or things but family drawing closer, friends being near and love given a chance to grow. ~Author Yvette Hines
Christmas to me means snowy days spent sipping something tasty in front of a twinkling tree and a roaring fire, while surrounded by the things that make you most happy--be that a new book, a cuddly pet, or the people you love. ~ Author Cat Johnson
Growing up it was important to my family that we share with a less fortunate family for Christmas. To me giving is the best example of Love. As we know love and Romance go hand in hand. What could be a better gift to receive for Christmas. ~Author Di Topaz

To me, Christmas is not about the gifts but about remembering what you are blessed to have, family, friends, love, and more. ~Author Aliyah Burke

The holiday season is about to become quite interesting....  ~Author Angie Daniels

Christmas mean three things to me: faith, hope and love. ~Author Stephanie Morris

Who Doesn't Love a Rake or a Rogue?

I wanted to take a moment and share a series with you that I love. I have a few favorite historical authors Beverly Jenkins, Jenna Peterson, Kate Pearce, Robin Schone, Anabel Joseph to name a few... Aliyah Burke is a talented writer of suspense, paranormal, contemporary and SEALS (not the ball bouncing kind...well, we won't discuss that.). She also brings her wit, kick-ass heroines and appealing, strong, sexy heroes to her historical writing as well in her Rakes & Rogue series.

I loved this series from book one. Those of you that have met Najja know what I'm talking about. I still get choked up on the snow fight scene. Well, in that book that was a scruffy little street urchin that should up at Colin's (hero from book one) door to deliver a message. Dirty, beat and bruised that little boy stole the show (book). I waited for his story for years and finally I can do my happy dance.

If you have not read this series, don't delay. If you have read book 1 and 2, I now invite you to join me in partaking in Pug's story.

Buy Book 3
A tumultuous meeting leads to a journey across the ocean and starts something new.

Pug has grown up as the eldest son of the Earl of Clifton yet prefers the open sea to land. Stopping off at an island, he engages a woman who takes his breath away. Fearless and protective, he wants to learn more of the woman who is as unique as the ocean.

Sabeen is taking care of five children after the island’s revolt. She has to find passage to England, somehow. Will she be making a big mistake by trusting this dark haired, blue eyed man who had offered his assistance?
During the journey, they grow closer and she learns there is more to this man than she first learned. A revelation waits for him back in England. Will this news drive them further apart? Will her past reclaim her, or will they find their way back to the seas and adventure?

Don't We All Want to be Destined for Love?

Hello SASSE Readers, let’s welcome Janet Eckford to our SASSE World. Pull up a chair and tell me if you prefer a plate of sushi or chicken bites for our little chat.

Janet: Sushi! I love it. Particularly sashimi. Although, I can be a bit of a purist when it comes to my rolls. When they get too busy with extra ingredients like cream cheese or pineapple (I saw that on a menu once) I get turned off.

SASSE: I love California Rolls with ginger sauce to dip instead of soy sauce (too salty). Now, that our mouths are full, tell the readers a little about yourself. LOL. How did you get into writing? When was that one moment when you felt ‘Oh, my, I’m really a romance writer.’?

Janet: I know it's a bit if a cliché to say I've always been a writer but it's the truth! I had a toy typewriter when I was about 4 or 5 that I would sit at it for what seemed like hours and "write" books for my parents. I'd type up my stories that started off with my name and a few basic words, but would eventually result in nonsensical words on several pages. I'd bind them with yarn, color something on the cover and read my "story" to my parents once finished. It wasn't until years later after finding myself settled in my career that I decided to develop my love of writing that wasn't technical writing for work.

I was particularly inspired when I discovered IR romance, because the majority of the writers were working out of the system of traditional publishing. If there could be an "ah ha" moment for me it would be at that moment. I was inspired by women telling their story, regardless if the mainstream wanted to hear it or not.

SASSE: What was the first romance book you read that you just couldn’t get out of your mind; that book that started your “keeper shelf”?

Janet: My first romance books would have been the Sweet Valley High Saga Books or V.C Andrews. Most likely V.C. Andrews because they were shelved near the youth section at my local library. I loved all of the drama and over the top stories and quickly discovered adult romances thereafter. I'm sure they're still packed up in my parents garage. ;)

SASSE: Friends to lovers has always been one of my favorite kinds of love stories. Your series Destined for Love, what sparked the idea for it?

Janet: I've always loved friends to lovers stories. As one of the romance tropes it's the most realistic but I believe one you can have the most fun with. I started the first two books with very traditional friends that become romantic, and the next two play with it a bit. I really like contemporary romance where the author has fun with what we expect from the genre and that's what I'm trying to do with these books. I also wanted to give some love to my home state California  (particularly Southern California) and have made a point to set all of my stories there.

SASSE: Each of the stories have varied couples which one of the pairs are your favorite?

Janet: I would say the couple from Finding Us is my favorite so far. They stretch the bounds of friends to lovers and could be thought of lovers to life mates. The heroine has a lot of sass and a lot of emotional blocks, while the hero could be a total Hollywood douche but pulls himself back. I also had fun changing the conflict for the heroines inability to commit still being she had "Daddy Issues" but it's because she views her father as being far superior to any man in her life and needing to learn that, yes as her father he can be that, but as a man and her mother's husband he has flaws.

SASSE: Do you enjoy friends to lovers movies as well? If so, what is your favorite one?

Janet: Oh Boy! This is a hard one. I was just talking to my husband about how I often find what reads well in a book doesn't necessarily translate well on the screen. I don't know if there is a certain magic in reading these type of love stories that is hard to capture on screen, but I can't think of a friends to lovers movie that is my fave. Off the top of my head I can think of one where the friends should have ended up but didn't. Pretty in Pink. Duckie and Andie should have totally ended up together, but in true romance novel fashion they would reconnect 20 years after prom and finally discover it was always meant to be them together. ;)

SASSE: My daughter totally agrees with you about Duckie. She has a t-shirt I just bought her that says “May I admire you again today?” because she loves the movie so much. Now, what do you do to get yourself in a writing frame of mind, television, quiet room, music…?

Janet: Well, it depends on what I'm writing and how busy my day job is. I'm a procrastinator and easily distracted, which can make sitting down to write difficult. I have a long commute for work, and I've found ideas will pop up while I'm sitting in traffic. The problem is once I get to my desk I'm not very good at writing them down. Currently, I'm bringing the notebook back out and plan to write stories out because I'm too tempted to goof off while at my computer. I'm also going to take the train a few days a week to see if it allows for more time with my creative process. Seeking balance is my newest plan for inspiring my muse, so we shall see how that goes. (Fingers crossed)

SASSE: What can readers expect next from you? What is the next series you will be working on/putting out?

Janet: I've been plugging away at my next Destined for Love book but am currently stalled. Actually I have two I'm stalled on, and I may let them sit for a bit. I'm participating in NaNoWriMo but in my true fashion am a bit behind on the original story I'd slated to complete and have started another. Long story short, something is coming, I just don't know what it is yet. ;)

SASSE: Thank you, Janet, this has been just delightful to sit back with you and learn a little more about you and your story.

A native West Coaster who hails from the sunny state of California I have loved the romance genre ever since I convinced my dad it was required reading when I was eleven. I believe love shouldn’t have a color code and strive to create stories that represent that belief.

Oh, yes, Erosa Knowles is bring it to you again with a brand new series: Reclamation.

"I live in a military town, near Ft. Bragg and have met so many vets. Once out the military they all fall under the title of vets no matter what branch they were in. I have seen a few clubs that cater to vets and asked the question, what if an officer started a club in the area, what would happen. I called it Reclamation and that started the series." ~Erosa Knowles

Both book 1 and 2 released today...pick them up and start your adventure now.

Get it today!
Club Reclamation is a place where Vets from all military branches come, chill, grab a drink or meal and find like-minded folks with a story to tell, or problem to share or a soapbox to stand on.

What if someone you trusted for years stole your child? What would you do to get him back? Former SEAL Maximus Delgado cannot accept never seeing his son again and sets out to find his son, Kevin. With the help of fellow vets and team members, he leads his team across North Carolina and beyond to find Helen Grant, the older woman who manages to stay one step ahead of them.

During the search for Kevin, Max and his team come across a body in a place Max had searched. With his fingerprints near the location of the corpse he becomes a prime suspect and seeks to find the murderer before his arrest. In a surprising turn of events, Max discovers he has room in his heart for one more. He refuses to stop searching until the real culprit is found and brought to justice for the Murder at the Beach.

Ready for a Little PDA?

Buy It Today!
Hello, Milly Taiden, welcome to SASSE Sheets. I appreciate you spending the day with us here. Before we get started with our talk tell me if you were to eat breakfast for dinner, would it be an omelet or waffle with toppings?

Milly: Oooh waffle please with blueberries and syrup

SASSE: I’m going to serve some up for myself as well, but with blackberry syrup. While your digging in, tell the readers a little about yourself. If you were not a romance writer, what would be your creative outlet?

Milly: That’s hard. I am not really a creative type of person. My sister and husband are so artistic. Me? I can tell a story or do boring stuff like work at an office. I’m not fun lol

SASSE: You are known for creating real, curvy girl heroines. What would do you like readers to take away from journeying through your stories with your heroines?

Milly: That curvy girls can have a happily ever after. That you don’t have to be a model to find a sexy man who will love and want you. That hot sex is not just for slim people.

SASSE: Are you more inspired by romantic movies or romantic music? What was the last movie or song that made you think of a romance story?

Milly: I think romantic music inspires me more than movies. I love oldies. One of my all-time favorite romantic songs is “I’ll Always Love You” performed by Taylor Dane. It’s a classic and my hubs raises the volume big time because he knows I’m gonna sing it at the top of my lungs lol.

SASSE:  Okay, I will tell you. I just get tickled just from reading the short book descriptions for each of these. They are clever and just make me smile. Can you explain to the readers about the Paranormal Dating Agency? How in the world did you come up with such a series?

Milly:  Hah! Well I love writing comedy. Especially romantic comedies with women I can relate to. I think it’s what makes my characters a little more real. The PDA is a business run by head shifter wolf, Geraldine Wilder. She’s not your typical grandmother. She tells it like it is and is very sassy. The women she matches all get a shifter and amazing sex. Because, why not, right?

SASSE: Happy release day! Your third PDA book, Her Purrfect Match, tell readers about this newest edition.

Milly: Thank you! Her Purrfect Match was so fun to write. Alyssa Moran is your typical woman who might hang on to a man a little too long even when she knows she should kick him in the ass. She finally decides if she wants children she needs a professional matchmaker. Enter Mrs. Wilder. Gray isn’t looking for a mate, but sometimes men don’t know what they need.

SASSE: Do you use celebrity character inspiration? If so, who would you choose for readers to really see your mental image of Grayson?

Milly: I don’t! But I did see this photo of a SUPER HOT guy on pinterest with all these swirly tattoos and short cropped hair with abs worthy of a few licks. He was definitely my inspiration for Gray.

SASSE: What was the most emotional challenging book to write out of the three PDA?

Milly: I think the first three were a breeze. I try to keep my stories fun and light-hearted so they keep the readers smiling. I think #4 is actually a little harder as I write it but otherwise they are great fun to write and super easy.

SASSE: I would like to thank you for the time to sit and chat. You’ve always been a sweet, kind and supportive person to fellow authors and this has been my weekly treat. Keep up the excellent writing work!

Milly: Thank you so much for allowing me to visit! <3 o:p="">

Hi! I'm Milly (AKA April Angel) I love to write sexy stories. They're usually either paranormal or contemporary with a large dose of heat. My paranormal stories can be anything from wolf-shifters (my favorites) to witches, demons and anything in between. I was born the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, I live in New York City with my hubby, the bossy kiddo and our little dog "Needy Speedy". Don't ask.

When I'm not working some really long hours at the day job, or hanging out in the awful life-sucking invention known as Facebook, messaging my bestie in the UK or shopping with my sis Julie, then I can be found watching scary movies. Buuut when I'm not doing that, I'm usually writing because the voices won't shut up.

I am addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn't, right?) and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

SASSE is 'Breaking Amish' in Romance with Stacy-Deanne

Hello SASSE Readers, let’s welcome Stacy-Deanne (Dee-Anne) to our SASSE World. Pull up a chair and tell me if you prefer a Dunkin Donut or a hot Krispy Kreme donut for our little chat.

Stacy: Thanks for having me! I’ve never had a Krispy Kreme. I love donuts but don’t eat them. In 2011 I changed to a healthy lifestyle so no donuts for me. LOL! I recently had some after not having any in years and because I don’t eat a lot of sugar or fried foods, they actually began to make me feel sick. It’s amazing how your body changes when you stop eating bad foods. You literally can’t take it. I have a sweet tooth so it can be hard sometimes to fight cravings, but being healthy is the most important to me. Also, I have lost a TON of weight and don’t want to go back to where I once was so I can live without the donuts. LOL! I’ll take some grapes and peanuts though. *smiles*

SASSE: Tell the readers a little about yourself. How did you get into writing?

Stacy: I’ve been in the industry since 1997 when I was 19. So I’ve been writing professionally almost twenty years! I’m single with no kids and live in Houston, Texas. People always told me I was a good writer when I was in school but I never wanted to be a writer until I was 19. I always had a great imagination and loved making up stories. The writing bug hit me when I got my first computer. I was able to just sit there and write down all my thoughts and I started writing stories. Once I’d written the first one I knew I wanted writing to be my career.

SASSE: What was the first romance book you ever read? What was your first impression of the genre?

Stacy: Hmm. When I was a child and teenager I didn’t read much romance. I was always into literary stories and mysteries. Mysteries are my favorite genre so I love romantic suspense especially. I guess I’d have to say it was one of Kay Hooper’s romantic suspense novels. I’ve read so many that I can’t even remember which one I read first. It was either her or Linda Howard. I used to be obsessed with Linda Howard too. LOL!

I loved how Linda and Kay mix suspense into many of their romances and have such deep characters. Before reading them I assumed all romances were like Harlequin books.

SASSE:  I don’t believe I have ever seen an IR Amish story before. It is an original breath of fresh air. Can you explain to the readers about Outside Woman? How did you come up with this story line?

Stacy: Yep, the fact that it’s different is why I did it. I strive to be different and bring something that either no one else has or that hasn’t been overly-done, to the table. I don’t follow trends or what might be popular. I write stories I enjoy, whether the idea is popular or not. I never want my books to blend in. I always want readers to know with me they will get a different experience, or at least something they don’t see over and over. I like to venture into storylines you don’t see in IR especially all the time. I also like to put a twist in my storylines or within my characters. I think writers should always come up with fresh stuff and switch things up.

Outside Woman is about a black woman, Thea, who is running from the law and she holds up in an Amish community. She is taken in by Elijah Roth, who is Thea’s uncle’s childhood friend. While there she meets the allusive Jacob, Elijah’s son, and gets dragged into the Roth’s family’s issues and helps them even more than they help her.

I came up with this story like I do all my stories. It simply started with an idea. I also find the Amish lifestyle interesting and fascinating so I wanted to write about it. I also hadn’t seen it done interracially so that was another plus.

SASSE: I can’t wait to read this book. I have already pre-ordered my copy. Will it be a series?

Stacy: Thanks for the support! Someone else asked about a sequel too. LOL! I hadn’t planned on writing a series but who knows? Honestly right now I prefer writing standalones. I’ve gotten burned out on writing series. I have two romantic suspense series going now and I’ve grown tired. I still love the characters, but I like how with standalones I can jump from storyline to storyline. It gets complicated writing a series, especially a long one. I find myself being bored after a while and if I am bored with the series, I know it’s time to wrap it up. Standalones keep things interesting for me because I can jump from storyline to storyline and embark on new adventures with new characters.

SASSE: Was there a challenging scene or aspect of this book that was difficult to write?

Stacy: Honestly, nope. I enjoyed writing each scene and once I started, the story just flew by. Nothing became hard for me emotionally or anything. Sometimes in my stories, that does happen, but I didn’t have any scenes that made me feel that way in Outside Woman.

SASSE: If you could think of a show readers should watch to get them ready to read this book what would it be?

Stacy: There isn’t a show I would suggest because all the Amish shows on today seem to be reality shows. I would say the movie Witness from 1985 with Harrison Ford and Kelly McGillis would be a good comparison. Ford is a cop who has to live in McGillis’ Amish community to protect her son who witnessed a murder. Any film with an outsider in an Amish community would be good to watch to get more insight into Outside Woman.

SASSE: If Hollywood called and asked to make this series a movie…BUT they wanted you to pick the people to star in it, who would you ask to direct it, play the hero and play the heroine?

Stacy: I love Ron Howard as director. He’d turn it from a romance to some big epic story like Far and Away. LOL! That might be cool. To star as Thea, I’d say maybe Kerry Washington. She reminds me of Thea with the crinkles, etc. To play Jacob, maybe Ryan Gosling or Leonardo DiCaprio. I’m a huge Leo fan. Since Washington and DiCaprio have already been in a film together, it would be cool to see them as love interests. Leo is a bit older than Jacob, but he favors him and he can pull off any character.

SASSE: Thank you Stacy, this has been just fantastic to sit back with you and learn a little more about you and your writing.

Stacy: Thanks for having me. I appreciate it!

While running from the law, Thea ends up in an Amish community inhabited by Elijah, the childhood friend of her late uncle. Not knowing the real reason she’s showed up, Elijah agrees to let her stay with his family temporarily. However, Elijah has two rules that cannot be broken.

First, Thea has to adopt the Amish lifestyle and respect their culture. Second, she has to stay away from Elijah’s son Jacob, who has been shunned by the entire community. Thea has no problem with the first rule, but from the moment she sees Jacob, she realizes Elijah’s second rule is impossible to follow.

Jacob is just as infatuated with Thea and refuses to turn his back on her, even after he finds out her secret. When Jacob decides he must leave the community, will Thea run from him or with him?

After a late night of karaoke, she’s awakened by a sexy voice that leaves more than just her curiosity aroused. When Kayla finally meets delivery driver, Ashton Kilmer, he’s gorgeous and the attraction is explosive. And In a matter of hours, she realizes an afternoon fling comes with scandalous consequences, especially since Ashton’s determined to pleasure her in every way imaginable. But will Mr. Right become Mr. Wrong when she discovers who he really is? This is a 35,000 word erotic novella.

These two bestselling authors team up to introduce a sizzling new series....

At first Janelle finds the jealousy cute and she’s determined to be the one to teach him how to trust. However, after a while the accusations get to be too much and she realizes the confident man she craved is insecure and unforgiving. And that’s only the beginning…
