Arc Roundup: The Right Swipe, The Wallflower Wager, The Duchess in His Bed + The Real Deal

It’s time for another arc roundup! This month’s post includes a contemporary from Alisha Rai, featuring a female app developer, a delightfully hilarious historical from Tessa Dare, the latest in Lorraine Heath’s Sins for All Seasons series, and a bonus fake relationship contemporary from Lauren Blakely, a new-to-me author. Spoiler alert: I think the Tessa Dare book might be one of my favorites of the year! Continue reading

RWA Recap: Panels and Signings and Games, Oh My

With the annual Romance Writers of America conference in town this past week, there were a plethora of amazing romance events to go to!

It’s so fun! And it’s my birthday this month, so what’s not to love about December? But you’re here to talk books, so let’s get to it! Continue reading
