A Lady’s Guide to Ruin: Exclusive Excerpt

Kathleen Kimmel

A Lady's Guide to Ruin by Kathleen Kimmel

Joan Price is a wanted woman. A thief and a fugitive from the mental hospital where she was falsely committed, she’s now on the run from her former partners in crime. But luck must be on her side—just when it seems all is doomed, she runs straight into the arms of Martin Hargrove, Earl of Fenbrook, who mistakes her for his distant cousin, Daphne.

Lord Fenbrook has no intention of marrying, and certainly doesn't consider his notoriously scatterbrained cousin a prospect. But her flighty persona seems to hide something far more intriguing—a secret self she trusts with no one. And Martin is determined to earn that trust…

When Martin’s sister discovers Joan’s charade, they strike a bargain: Joan can remain within the safe walls of Birch Hall, as long as she doesn’t allow Martin to fall in love with her—for their flirtation would surely ruin them both. She’s convinced she poses no threat to his heart, but she’s beginning to realize that her heart may be the one in danger. Especially as he seems very set on seducing her...

Get a sneak peek at Kathleen Kimmel's A Lady's Guide to Ruin (available December 1, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Joan turned, and froze. A figure stood in the hallway, beside the door to the cupboard beneath the stairs. It was too dark to make out more than broad shoulders and a slight stoop. Her mouth went dry. Moses.

But, no. The faint huff of amusement shattered the illusion. Martin stepped forward, straightening up and dispelling the stunted silhouette his pose had created. “Cousin Daphne,” he said. His voice was warm and rich. She could just make out his features in the dark, those bewitching eyes catching some stray glint of light. “Do you frequently wander through the hallways at night?”

First Look: J.R. Ward’s Blood Kiss (December 1, 2015)

Blood Kiss by J.R. Ward

J.R. Ward
Blood Kiss (Black Dagger Legacy #1)
Signet / December 1, 2015 / $7.99 print & digital

The legacy of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continues in a spin-off series from the #1 New York Timesbestselling author…

Paradise, blooded daughter of the king’s First Advisor, is ready to break free from the restrictive life of an aristocratic female. Her strategy? Join the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center program and learn to fight for herself, think for herself…be herself. It’s a good plan, until everything goes wrong. The schooling is unfathomably difficult, the other recruits feel more like enemies than allies, and it’s very clear that the Brother in charge, Butch O’Neal, a.k.a. the Dhestroyer, is having serious problems in his own life.

And that’s before she falls in love with a fellow classmate. Craeg, a common civilian, is nothing her father would ever want for her, but everything she could ask for in a male. As an act of violence threatens to tear apart the entire program, and the erotic pull between them grows irresistible, Paradise is tested in ways she never anticipated—and left wondering whether she’s strong enough to claim her own power…on the field, and off.

Old-school fans of the WARDen, rejoice! The author who brought us into a gritty world of vampires and their slayers, shitkickers, glymera, The Pit, needing, and the like is getting back to her roots with the new Black Dagger Brotherhood Legacy series. The main series—Black Dagger Brotherhood—has transitioned into more of a family saga with numerous players than the straightforward paranormal romance it captivated us with early in the series.

What Would Be Your First Family Romance Conversion Kit?

On Saturday, the First Family—or rather the First Daughters, and Barack Obama—were spotted out and about for Small Business Saturday. And, like any good reading family, they stopped at a local bookstore. While the girls were exiting the shop, the checked out a sign featuring none other than historical romance favorite Tessa Dare. 

The sign and photo sparked a conversation on Twitter about what to include in a romance conversion kit for the First Daughters—after all, they picked up books ranging from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Young Adult books by Cynthia Voight. Don't you think there's some room for romance in there too? 

What would you include in a romance conversion kit for Michelle, Malia, and Sasha? After all, the girls are older than many of us were when we started reading romance, what should we recommend?

Hat tip to Megan Frampton for the heads up!

H&H Bloggers Recommend: Best Reads of November 2015

Falling Stars by Anita Mills

Each month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.

Without further ado, here’s the installment for November 2015 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the Related Posts section at the bottom of the post):

Anna Bowling:

Falling Stars by Anita Mills hit best read status out of the park this November. Take one English sparrow, one Russian count with a deep, dark secret, the golden rake who did not get the girl in the previous book, Autumn Rain, and step out of the drawing room, into Imperial Russia and a scandal that spans from Moscow to London. Angst, emotion, yearning, nail-biting suspense as the not-yet-lovers flee for dear life, and an author skilled enough to make the workings of Parliament interesting make this a read for which I am truly thankful.

First Look: Edith Layton’s Peaches and the Queen (November 30, 2015)

Peaches and the Queen by Edith Layton

Edith Layton
Peaches and the Queen
Untreed Reads / November 30, 2015 / $0.99 digital

Presenting a never-before-published, holiday short story from Regency author Edith Layton!

Christmas is coming to Victorian London. A poor boy living with his milliner sister in a marginal part of town discovers his cat is missing. His old dog can’t live without the cat, so he searches—and hears that the Queen has kidnapped his cat! Queen Victoria’s favorite moggie strayed, and her minions scooped up the wrong cat—or so the boy and his sister think.

This Christmas novella tells how an earnest young Beefeater, his world-weary superior, and one of the wiliest criminals in London each try to find the right cat without disturbing the old queen, win the boy’s cat back—and woo the pretty sister—before the Queen leaves London for her Christmas holiday.

From the servants at the palace and the Queen’s own chambers, to Billingsgate and the mudlarks’ favorite taverns, the adventures are many among the high- and low-life of Victorian London.

Is there anything more poignantly wonderful than reading an unknown Christmas novella from a favorite Regency novelist , a legendary writer who passed from our ranks far too early? Edith Layton’s Peaches and the Queen is an elegiac, surprising story. There are a number of protagonists, each looking for a very special moggie (that would be cat in British cant), which is unusual because the hallmark of a moggie is a cat that is decidedly ordinary: “a cat, especially one that does not have a pedigree or is otherwise unremarkable.”

First Look: Thea Harrison’s Shadow’s End (December 1, 2015)

Shadow's End by Thea Harrison

Thea Harrison
Shadow's End (Elder Races #9)
Berkley / December 1, 2015 / $7.99 print & digital

The author of Lord’s Fall and Midnight’s Kiss returns with an enchanting and sizzling new tale about debts that cannot be repaid and hunger that cannot be satisfied…

For Beluviel, consort to the Elven High Lord, and Graydon, gryphon and First Sentinel of the Wyr, even the slightest desire for each other is forbidden. But two hundred years ago, after a desperate play to save Beluviel’s stepson left them indebted to the cruel Djinn Malphas, they found their fates inexorably linked together—and the hunger between them growing too strong to ignore…

Two centuries later, with their debt to Malphas coming due, Beluviel and Graydon realize that, if they are to stand any chance of saving their souls, they must once again work together—this time more closely than ever before. But every moment they spend with each other brings them nearer to losing something even more vital—their hearts…

Thea Harrison points out to us the consequences we need to live with when we chose desires we know are unattainable and the shadow refers to the shadow on our souls which is the price we pay for wanting what we cannot have.

In Thea Harrison's Shadow’s End, Lady Beluviel, wife of the Elven High Lord, is looking for her stepson Ferion, the heir to the Elven Demesne.  Ferion is a frustrated man living a half-life.  He is the heir of the Demense, so he cannot pursue a life of his own choosing, but as the heir to a father who is nearly immortal and can live centuries more as the High Lord, Ferion is always kept on the outer edge of the Elven Court. Ferion is given no true purpose in his life, yet he cannot go forge his own future.

Target Engaged: Exclusive Excerpt

M.L. Buchman

Target Engaged by M. L. Buchman

Delta Force: The most dangerous elite counter-terrorism force on the planet:

• The deadliest shooters
• The most out-of-the-box thinkers in any military
• Will die to get the mission done

Sergeant Kyle Reeves: The premier soldier of the new recruits Sergeant Carla Anderson: The first woman of Delta Force.

If the training doesn't kill them, their passion may-but Kyle Reeves and Carla Anderson blast right in. Show no fear. Have no fear. Then they get the call. The most powerful drug-smuggling ring in Venezuela needs a takedown, and Delta's newest team leaps into the deep jungle to deliver. Giving their all? Not a problem. Giving their hearts? That takes a new level of courage.

Get a sneak peek at M. L. Buchman's Target Engaged (available December 1, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Carla Anderson has survived five years in the Army, has been the first woman to ever make it through the rigorous Delta Force Selection Process and the Operators’ Training Course. She has done it all by shutting out any thoughts of others, even of herself. Taking the very best of the fellow recruits as lover shouldn’t breach any of her carefully constructed walls…but it is starting to. She is no frozen in the moment between her final exercise as a trainee and her first mission as the first female operator of Delta Force.

Carla was so not ready for this.

HALO jumps were fine. Jumping out of a speeding jetliner at thirty-five thousand feet was almost as much of a rush as having sex with Kyle. Well, no, it wasn’t that good, but it could sure make a girl feel happy in a lot of ways.

Her problem was that she hadn’t slept in over thirty-six hours and they were headed into their first live op on no notice. Well, technically on twenty-three minutes notice, which didn’t help a whole lot.

Shipping Sunday: The Librarians’ Jake/Cassandra (Jassandra)

Jake and Cassandra in The Librarians

“Shut up. I'm doing math,” might be my favorite line from this show. My second favorite line is “She writes a lot in this little notebook, and I pay attention.” That pretty much sums up Cassandra and Jake's relationship in The Librarians—they're a study in contradictions but both of them pay attention to one another, despite never allowing things to go beyond casual observation and yearning expressions.

For those not familiar with The Librarians, here's a quick recap: Noah Wiley plays Flynn, not just a librarian, but The Librarian—a fantastical adventurer who finds magical artifacts, ones many of us book lovers would be familiar with. The series started as a pair of made-for-TV movies and launched as a television show last year, and introduced us to other librarians, most notably, for our shipping purposes, Cassandra and Jake.

For Love or Magic: Exclusive Excerpt

Lucy March

For Love or Magic by Lucy March

Eliot Parker's good-for-nothing deceased husband has left her a new lease on life: a house in sleepy Nodaway Falls, New York. But his offer comes with a cost: his ghost...

As if being married to him wasn't hard enough! Nodaway Falls turns out to be a town with more than a little magic in the air. Eliot swore off using her own powers sixteen years ago, thanks to one catastrophic day when she lost the only people who ever mattered to her, and ran away from her spellbinding father and his reckless enchantments. Now, when a chance encounter with quiet, handsome Desmond Lamb results in a magical explosion that rocks Eliot to the core, she can't help but wonder: Has her heart fallen under some sort of spell? Or is this what true love really feels like? The real question, of course, is whether her husband will stop haunting her...and let Desmond give her a chance at happily ever after?

Get a sneak peek at Lucy March's For Love or Magic (available December 1, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Chapter 1

“Let’s be clear about one thing, Seamus,” I said, giving the bull mastiff the French fry he had been whining about since I pulled it out of the bag. “Just because I’m feeding you doesn’t mean you’re my dog.”

I wasn’t trying to be mean, but I didn’t want him to start getting all attached just because I gave him a stupid French fry, either. In truth, there didn’t seem to be much danger of that; he inhaled the fry and continued to remain indifferent to me, which was really best for everyone.

Be Thankful for the Bad Boy: New Adult Romance Best Bets for November 2015

Once Kissed by Cecy Robson

It’s that time of year where a lot of reflection takes place and gratitude. I, for one, am extremely grateful for the literary bad boy and these characters are excellent examples as to why. The “bad boy” can turn your day right side up or, more than likely tie you into knots. These new adult heroes listed below will all have you thanking the stars for their creation.

Once Kissed by Cecy Robson is the start of a new series, the O’Brien Family. Her stories are engrossing, her alpha males are charismatic, tough, yet vulnerable. She continues the trend in Once Kissed with Curran O’Brien. Tess is a straitlaced law student trying to get out of her father’s thumb one semester at a time. When Curran and Tess meet again, these opposites are pulled together by circumstances (i.e nutzos after Tess) beyond their control. I laughed, I smiled, and I was enthralled with their story. I can’t wait for more in the series! 

The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan has a man-bun, check. Beard, check. Virgin? Eh. Not what you normally expect when you think of the new adult hero but, Ethan Dexter has been way too busy to focus on things other than football. His quiet intensity drags Fi in and she’s reluctant to get involved with what she thinks is a hot shot player. One kiss sets Dex and Fi off on a game plan that she didn’t know she needed.

Forever His Texas Bride: Exclusive Excerpt

Linda Broday

Forever His Texas Bride by Linda Broday

All his life, Brett Liberty has straddled two worlds: white and Iroquois. The only place he's truly at peace is with his wild mustangs. But after he's arrested for the color of his skin, he discovers Rayna Harper in the cell next to him. Rough and tumble Rayna has known little kindness, but Brett sees the depth of her heart hidden beneath layers of hurt and fear, and he refuses to leave without her.

Fierce and loyal, kind and strong, Rayna is everything Brett has ever wanted. But the world doesn't look kindly on a love like theirs, and he would rather let her go than bring her pain. Yet when the demons of his past threaten her future, Brett realizes he will do anything to keep Rayna safe...and make her his.

Get a sneak peek at Linda Broday's Forever His Texas Bride (available December 1, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Brett hesitated before putting his arm around Rayna’s shoulders. “If I was able to take a wife for real, I’d want it to be you. But I’ll never marry anyone. I’m a color no one appears to have a particular fondness for.”

“It doesn’t make any difference to me. I see your heart, not your skin.”

“Thank you, but it does matter a great deal to some.”

Rayna rested her head on his shoulder. “Not to the people of Battle Creek. Mabel told me everyone loves and accepts you.”

First Look: Jade Lee’s One Rogue At A Time (December 1, 2015)

One Rogue at a Time by Jade Lee

Jade Lee
One Rogue at a Time (Rakes and Rogues #2)
Sourcebooks Casablanca / December 1, 2015 / $7.99 print & digital

USA Today bestselling author Jade Lee continues her saucy, vibrant Rakes and Rogues Regency romance series with a high-society outsider who may have met his match...

A brown-eyed bastard with nothing to lose

As the illegitimate son of a duke, Bramwell Wesley Hallowsby grew up tough, on the fringes of society, learning to hide his hurt and cynicism with charm and Town polish. He's carved out a place for himself as a mercenary, serving as bodyguard and general strong arm for the peerage. Bram has nothing to lose... and he's exactly what Maybelle “Bluebell” Ballenger needs.

Meets his match in a blue-eyed beauty with everything to hide

Maybelle needs a mentor to teach her to speak and act like a lady, so she can claim the place in society she was denied. As they team up to take on the ton, Bram knows she's hiding something even from him. Despite the deception he sees behind those sparkling blue eyes, Bram wants to believe that Maybelle's love is no lie. But it seems fate has served him up his just desserts in the likes of this determined damsel.

There have been a lot of firsts lately for me in the subgenre of historical romance in terms of discovering authors. This only makes me wish I had more hours in the day to read! Since now I have to backlog all of the books the authors have written. After reading One Rogue at a Time, I immediately went to Goodreads to see what other books Jade Lee has written. And Lordy, there are many to choose from, which means hours of squee-time. Unfortunately, see above mention about the lack of time.

Friday Beefcake: Vegan Men Are Hot ... Just ask Donnell Blaylock Jr.

BC Donnell Blaylock Jr. eating chocolate

At first it was vegetarian, pescetarian, gluten-free, south beach diet, and the other various names for eating and living healthier. Now I meet more vegans and people trying the Paleo diet. I must admit I've had a few vegan meals, mainly because one of my besties is a hard-core vegan. Vegan cakes, vegan meat, and etc. 

But nothing like donny_savage22 to really make a girl want to go vegan. The real estate agent recently used instargram to promote the vegan lifestyle. I watched Part 1 and then Part 2 .

And ... I've never seen someone entice you into supporting the Vegan movement. I was like Gotdamn...Gotdamn. Do all vegans look like you? Do you make housecalls? Am I drooling over this man on instagram? Can I have him for X-mas? and Valentine's day and everyday as my personal Vegan chef? 

So he's the beefcake of the week peeps ...

Extra Helpings: Paranormal Romance Best Bets for November 2015

Dragon Storm by Katie MacAlister

If your annual strategy to surviving Thanksgiving and Christmas involves hiding from your family and cuddling with up with some paranormal goodness then you’re in the right place.  Sure, none of these books are as scary as what happens when my family gathers together, but these action packed stories still promise to give you a thrill!

Dragon Storm by Katie MacAlister


According to some (including himself), Constantine is one of the greatest heroes of dragonkin who ever lived. Too bad he's now lonelier than ever and his biggest adventure involves a blow-up sheep—until he has an opportunity to save his kind once again. All Constantine has to do is break into a demon's dungeon, steal an ancient artifact, and reverse a deadly curse. The plan certainly does not involve rescuing a woman...


Bee isn't sure whether to be infuriated or relieved when Constantine pops up in her prison. The broody, brawny shifter lights her fire in a way no one ever has before, yet how far can she really trust him? Their chemistry may be off the charts, but when push comes to shove, Constantine will have to make a crucial choice: to save the dragons or the woman he's grown to love with fierce intensity.

Constantine is a cocky dragon with a fine ass.  It’s a hilarious, quirky ride as he rescues the Charmer Bee, who is kind of trapped in hell. Bee has also had a relationship with a dragon before so she’s not keen to repeat the experience.  If you have ever dated a DJ or an “actor” then you can probably relate.  Anyway, there’s this dragonkin curse so Bee and Constantine team up to deal with that. And there’s also this demon lord thing. But it’s really all about the sexually charged situations that the two find themselves in.  There’s also some of that bickering foreplay which is pretty amusing. Good times!

Gifts for Book Lovers: Find the Perfect Gift Based on Favorite Reads

Hearts of Blue by L.H. Cosway

Unsure what to get your spouse or significant other? Do they read romance novels? If so, check the title and genre or use our handy gift guide to help us help you with your holiday shopping.

Name: Lock Me Up Bracelet

Inspired by: 50 Shades of Grey, Charlotte Stein’s Taken, and L.H. Cosway’s Hearts of Blue.

Why it’s a great gift: Perfect for the guy or gal who you want to make sure who’s love you have a lock on. This accessory is inspired from the covers of both the 50 Shades series as well as Cosway’s Hearts of Blue. The reference to Charlotte Stein’s Taken may be a little less obvious, but basically the hero locks up the Zooey Deschanel-like heroine who views the handcuffs as more of a connector and less of a restriction. The kink factor is pretty obvious for Shades of Grey fans, but for those who haven’t read Hearts of Blue, the heroine is a police constable and the hero is involved with things that are less than legal, also the cover literally shows the two clasping hands bound together by handcuffs so you can take it to be a literal or figurative symbol of their love.

Getting In the Spirit: Male/Male Best Bets for November 2015

Winter Wonderland by Heidi Cullinan

Holiday romances have become as much a sign of November as falling leaves and leftover turkey. This month offers some that are typically mushy and heartwarming, and also some with a little more edge. If neither is your thing, there's also a sun-drenched contemporary and a forbidden love historical.

Winter Wonderland (Minnesota Christmas #3) by Heidi Cullinan

Finding Mr. Right can be a snow lot of fun.

Paul Jansen was the only one of his friends who wanted a relationship. Naturally, he’s the last single man standing. No gay man within a fifty-mile radius wants more than casual sex.

No one, that is, except too-young, too-twinky Kyle Parks, who sends him suggestive texts and leaves X-rated snow sculptures on his front porch.

Kyle is tired of being the town’s resident Peter Pan. He’s twenty-five, not ten, and despite his effeminate appearance, he’s nothing but the boss in bed. He’s loved Paul since forever, and this Christmas, since they’re both working on the Winter Wonderland festival, he might finally get his chance for a holiday romance.

 But Paul comes with baggage. His ultra-conservative family wants him paired up with a woman, not a man with Logan’s rainbow connection.

When their anti-LGBT crusade spills beyond managing Paul’s love life and threatens the holiday festival, Kyle and Paul must fight for everyone’s happily ever after, including their own.

Warning: Contains erotic snow art, toppy twinks, and super-sweet holiday moments. Best savored with a mug of hot chocolate with a dash of spice.

The third in Cullinan's popular Minnesota Christmas series. Is Paul really the last single man standing? Tune in next November to find out. Will there be more penis sculptures in holiday romances? Read on...
