8 Romances for Fans of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Flappers!

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

What romance should you turn to for Miss Fisher withdrawals?

It is a rare movie or TV show that doesn’t prompt viewers to say “the book was better,” but Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries does not disappoint. Based on the series of historical detective novels by Australian author/lawyer Kerry Greenwood, this drama left fans begging for more when it ended after only three series (or seasons, in North American terms). The romantic tension between globe-trotting heiress Phryne Fisher and the always-logical Detective Inspector Jack Robinson is evident from their first meeting and only grows stronger with time.

In November 2016, the Sydney Morning Herald announced that ABC will make a series of three action movie spin-offs starring Miss Fisher, reminiscent of the Indiana Jones films. Unfortunately for those of us desperately waiting for their release, producers must work around the busy schedule of Miss Fisher herself (actress Essie Davis), who is currently cast as Lady Crane on Game of Thrones.

Until Miss Fisher appears on the silver screen, these romance novels set in the 1920s may hold you over.

First Look: Jacquelyn Frank’s Thirst (January 17, 2017)

Thirst by Jacquelyn Frank

Jacquelyn Frank
Thirst (The Energy Vampires #1)
Loveswept / January 17, 2017 /  $4.99 digital

A hidden society of vampires—and the humans they love—are at the heart of this opening novel in a biting, all-original series from the New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank of the Nightwalkers saga.

Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire, soaking up nourishment from the sun—and, only when necessary, drawing sweet sustenance from humans who are pure in body and spirit. As the right-hand man to his queen, Rafe is a key player at a historic peace summit in New York City, which will unite the vampire nations against a common threat: the sycophants, who feed on humanity and kill indiscriminately. But Rafe’s fascination with a beautiful blond police detective may put everything at risk.

Detective Renee Holden has never worked a homicide quite like this. The victim has twin puncture wounds on his neck, and the only eyewitness swears she saw a vampire. Now’s definitely not the time to get distracted by a seductive stranger. But the suave, darkly austere, exotically handsome Rafe DaSilva is a hard man to deny, and as Renee falls under his spell, she also falls prey to his enemies. Desperate to protect her, Rafe lifts the veil on a shadow realm she can only visit—a world of intoxicating power, terrifying dangers, and forbidden pleasures.

Lonely Hearts: Past and Present

Wanted, A Gentleman by KJ Charles

We're thrilled to welcome KJ Charles (Wanted, A Gentleman) who knows a thing our two about love advertisements, especially after doing some research. But can you guess when the first “Lonely Heart” ad was placed? KJ fills us in. Thanks, KJ!

Advertising for love might seem to the young a modern phenomenon, the invention of Match.com, Tinder and Grindr. If you’re 40-plus, you might well have tried dating through the small ads in newspapers and magazines. Pop quiz: when do you think the first recorded Lonely Hearts advert dates from?

I’m guessing you’re thinking early 1900s, maybe post-war thanks to the social impact of the mass slaughter of young men. Nope. Try again.

Maybe early 1800s then? The Napoleonic Wars had had a proportionately devastating effect on the male population to the First World War, and the Industrial Revolution had caused massive social upheaval in getting people moving around and swelling the cities. Sounds convincing? Still too late.

The first recorded Lonely Hearts advert in the world was published in a London pamphlet of July 1695, and asked for “some Good Young Gentlewoman that has a fortune of £3000, or thereabouts” to marry a gentleman in his thirties “that says he has a Very Good Estate”. (Let’s take a moment to side-eye that “says he has”. I hope his bride didn’t just take his word for it.)

11 Memorable Moments from Unforgettable Fantasy This Winter

Albert Einstein tells us that “Imagination is everything.” The fantasy novels of winter 2016/2017 contain heart, love, and plenty of imagination.

Contemporary Fantasy:

Indelible by Adelia Saunders

Indelible by Adelia Saunders

Indelible by Adelia Saunders is the story of Magdalena, and Richard and Neil and how their fates intertwine. Magdalena sees people’s lives literally written on their skin. As a child, the sentences looked like funny markings but she can still remember when she first learned to read and blurted a horrible truth to her teacher. She was delighted when her vision blurred at a young age and uses her glasses only when absolutely necessary. Her battered shins may hate her but her soul, at least, finds a certain peace in this solution. When Richard sends a Christmas present to her mom, he uses his son Neil as a carrier. Magdalena is happy to pick up the package but less delighted when she is forced to put on her glasses and sees her own name clearly on his skin. What can that mean?

An interesting take on how magical gifts can come with high prices, Indelible offers a slow burn romance within a literary fantasy/paranormal novel.

Memorable moment: When Neil and Magdalena meet:

Suddenly, she leaned in, looking right at him with strange intensity. Either he had something on his face or she was going to kiss him. Neil thought he might pass out. But instead she smiled, like something there had pleased her.

Linda Howard Targets Her Toughest Books, Recommended Reads, and More!

Troublemaker by Linda Howard

Today we're thrilled to welcome Linda Howard to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Linda's name has become synonymous with romantic suspense and is a staple for many romance readers. With the paperback release of her book Troublemaker, we got the chance to pick her brain! Ever wondered what the hardest book for her to write was? What she would do if she was placed in the same circumstances as some of her beloved characters? We found all of it out! So dive in and get ready to uncover it all! Thanks, Linda!

1. What has been the hardest book for you to write? Did readers have a similar reaction to it?

Linda Howard: From a technical standpoint, Kiss Me While I Sleep. There was so much research into poisons, pandemics, and Paris! I’ve never been to Paris, so of course I set a book there. :-/. Thank heavens for Google Maps, regular maps, tourist books, etc. I don’t think anyone other than the writer knows when a book is research heavy. From an emotional standpoint, though, the two most difficult books were Sarah's Child—which is an oldie—and Cry No More. Both of them wiped me out, and yeah, readers  had the same reaction.

Set Your Sights on Scarlett Cole’s New Love Over Duty Series!

Under Fire by Scarlett Cole

We love a good heart-pounding romantic suspense novel, and Scarlett Cole's new series, Love Over Duty, answers our call for non-stop action. Under Fire is the first novel in the series and pairs Six, a former Navy SEAL and Louisa, a brilliant scientist, who's set to improve the lives of thousands of people, if Six can manage to keep her alive. Get the scoop:

HE CAN TAKE THE HEAT.

Hot, hard-bodied Sixten Rapp is a former SEAL who’s raring to begin his brand-new civilian life. He and his Navy “brothers” start a security firm that offers the kind of services only a team of military-trained professionals can provide. But nothing prepared Six for his new client: an innocent woman on a mission to improve thousands of lives. . . unless someone takes hers first.

CAN SHE HANDLE THE FLAMES?

Dr. Louisa North knows time is against her as she tries to create a “miracle” medical treatment for a disease with no known cure, until she creates a sample so powerful that the wrong people want to use it as a chemical weapon. At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there’s much more to this plain-Jane scientist…including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist. And now that an enemy is on Louisa’s trail, Six will do whatever it takes to protect her—or die trying.

Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell Excerpt + Cover Reveal: Hard Wired

Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell

Hard Wired by Megan Erickson, Santino Hassell

My FallenCon agenda is simple: sit on a couple of panels and let people meet the real me. Jesse Garvy—mod of a famous Twitch channel and, if I ever come out of my shell, future vlogger. I definitely didn’t plan to sleep with a moody tattooed fan-artist, but he’s gorgeous and can’t keep his hands off me. There's a first time for everything, and my first time with a guy turns out to be the hottest experience of my life.

But the next day, I find out my moody fan-artist is Ian Larsen AKA Cherry—someone I've known online for years. And he'd known exactly who I was while shoving me up against that wall. Before I figure out whether to be pissed or flattered, the con ends.

Now we're back online, and he's acting like nothing happened. But despite the distance between us, and the way he clings to the safety of his online persona, we made a real connection that night. I don't plan to let him forget.

Get a sneak peek at Megan Erickson, Santino Hassell's Hard Wired (available February 13, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

“Finish your other drink. I want to show you something.”

Jesse did as commanded, tilting his head back and wincing, but he swallowed it in one gulp. I leaned in closer, pressing my body to his broader more muscular one, and tangled my fingers with his. He was so warm, and he smelled so good, that I wanted to keep him close.

He dropped the glass to the table with a comical grimace. Jesse wasn't much of a drinker, but he was still sharp. Even so, I leaned in and whispered, “Are you sober?”

Flawed by Tracy Wolff

Tracy Wolff 
Flawed (Ethan Frost #4)
Loveswept / January 17, 2017 / $3.99 digital

The fourth book in Tracy Wolff's Ethan Frost series, Flawed, features Tori Reed, Chloe’s best friend, and Miles Girard, Chloe’s brother.

Tori is a mess, but we root for her, because she’s the heroine who’s had messed up parents, made a mess of her life, and well, wants to finally clean up her mess—all on her own. When a boyfriend from her past seeks to sabotage her reputation in order to pump his own publicity with the media, it leaves our Tori in shambles. Despite all her hard work to clean up her act, she’s the victim of a vindictive plot—no spoilers!

Enter Miles Girard,Tori’s best friend’s older brother. Tori still can’t forgive him for his role in hurting Chloe. Even though Miles sincerely didn’t know how his actions hurt his sister, and even though Chloe and Ethan have forgiven Miles, Tori still can’t.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that Miles is too smart and too good-looking. And he’s Tori’s number one enemy.

Where’s Sera’s Baby? and Other Questions We Have for The Day of the Duchess

The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean

This post contains spoilers for all books in the Scandal & Scoundrel series by Sarah MacLean and heavy speculation on what's to come in The Day of the Duchess. 

Sarah MacLean’s Scandal & Scoundrel series is loosely based on modern celebrity scandals, complete with gossip rag columns sprinkled throughout. As with modern scandals, we readers don’t know the full story or probably even half of the story. But isn’t it delicious to speculate? Let’s do.

The next installment in the series is The Day of the Duchess, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Haven, Malcolm and Seraphina. In the first book, the heroine, Sera’s sister Sophie, pushes the Duke into a fish pond at a garden party after a very public row… after she catches him with someone who is very much not Sera. It causes a scandal that compels Sophie to dash off into the country, get shot, get married, etc. That shove is really the catalyst for the plot of The Rogue Not Taken. To say it’s memorable is an understatement.

In book two, A Scot in the Dark, the heroine, Lily, has become a friendless outcast, until she meets the Soiled S’s. Like the modern day Kardashian sisters, the Talbot sisters (Sophie, Sera, Sesily, Seline, and Seleste) fill the pages of the gossip rags in London. Sesily and Sophie in particular befriend our Lily, standing up for her during her own scandal. But where’s Sera?

Sounds like we’ll find out in The Day of the Duchess!

Jackie Ashenden Excerpt: The Billionaire’s Virgin

Jackie Ashenden

The Billionaire's Virgin by Jackie Ashenden

Xavier De Santis: Charming. Disgraced. Playboy.

The headlines are always shouting about the excesses of the so-called Prince Charming of the De Santis family. Problem is, Xavier is everything they say he is.

But now he’s gone too far, and he has has been ordered to clean up his image. Volunteering at a homeless shelter, Xavier sees a bright light amidst all the bleakness. An angel whose luminous face and tragic beauty call to him in ways he can’t explain.

Mia: Homeless. Vulnerable. Virgin.

When the shelter Mia calls home closes, she is left with nowhere to go. Nowhere except the luxurious, glorious palace of a home where Xavier De Santis has invited her to stay. This too-handsome billionaire is dark, dangerous…and also too good to be true.

Surely Mia can indulge in her fantasies and escape the hardness of her daily life for just one night?

As one night turns into two, Mia knows that eventually, the magic will end. She can't keep the beautiful clothes. She can't keep the soft bed. And most of all, she can't keep the hard, handsome man who makes her crave his touch with every breath she takes.

Mia doesn't belong in his world. But as Xavier tempts his rags-to-riches heroine with exquisite pleasure and heady desire, Mia may have no choice but to surrender to him completely.

Get a sneak peek at Jackie Ashenden's The Billionaire's Virgin (available January 10, 2016) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Chapter 1

As Xavier de Santis, billionaire bad boy and youngest son of the second richest man in New York, slopped stew into the tin plates of the poor and needy at the Midtown homeless shelter his father had forced him to volunteer at, he realized it wasn’t the actual physical reality of Manhattan’s poor and needy that bothered him the most.

It was the smell. Not the unwashed bodies or the unkempt hair or the terrible breath. No, as unpleasant as all that was, that he could deal with.

It was the smell of hopelessness, of despair, that he had difficulty with.

Where Are The Charmed Ones?: All the Questions We Have About a 1970s Charmed Reboot

A reboot of Charmed? How...charming. The CW has announced that a new Charmed series is in the works and will be directed by the executive producer of Jane the Virgin-Jennie Snyder Urman. According to TVLine, this is not a reboot per say but more of a prequel. The new series will be, set in a small New England town in 1976, the series features a new trio of witches—Annie, Tina and (curiously) Paige—none of whom are related by blood. Also, via TVLine, were unofficial character analyses for the new power trio.

There's no mention of the Halliwell sisters making an appearance though I see similarities in the characterization between the new characters and old characters. Tina's reserved and standoffish? Sounds like Prue. Piper and Paige could be twins with their all-American girl personas and strong desire to be married. Phoebe's devil may care attitude and fashion sense seems to have found a new home in Annie. As the CW has always been a ‘let's toss it all into the pot, stir, and see what happens’ kind of channel, this could all change.

What Is the Last Thing from a Romance Novel That You Would Want to Have Happen to You?

Smut by Karina HalleLast week I shared with you how romantic comedy needs flawed characters to both be effective and enjoyable. In one of the books I shared (Smut by Karina Halle), the heroine has an unfortunate habit of nervous vomiting—and in the book, happens to do it all over her would-be fiancé. Since then, I've had many people say that is the last thing they'd ever want to have happen to them. 

If there's one event that you wouldn't want to happen to you (outside of murder, etc, and the other fatal/illegal things that can happen in romance), what would it be? Is the scene embarrassing? Gross? 

Tell me about it in the comments!
