What is a Romantic Comedy?

After watching this video, we gotta agree with James Corden... do these people even know what a romantic comedy is?! Apparently not. Anne Hathaway started off her list of favorite romantic comedies very strongly with Notting Hill being her top contender. Then she went on to her second pick... Gone Girl. 

*Insert record screech*

She told fellow members of the chat show to “think about it,” but we gotta say that we don't care to. It left host Corden wondering if Hathaway wondering if she even knew what a rom-com was—especially considering she starred in several!

So, let's help educate Anne. How would you define a romantic comedy? What are some of your favorites? 

Tell me about it in the comments!

First Look: Kate Baxter’s The Untamed Vampire (May 2, 2017)

The Untamed Vampire by Kate Baxter

Kate Baxter
The Untamed Vampire (Last True Vampire #4)
St. Martins Press / May 2, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

For the Love of Strong Heroines

The strong heroine is a staple of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. It’s a glorious thing, everyone should read it. Whether they are born into the paranormal world or end up there after a bite or some magical event, heroines in paranormal and UF are typically, the toughest cookies on the block. Physically and mentally, these powerhouses of the story, are rarely the damsels in distress and often end up saving the day and usually the world. Kate Baxter’s Last True Vampire series is chock full of strong women and each one is a force to be reckoned with. The Untamed Vampire gives us Chelle’s HEA and let me tell you, the tethering/mating process might seem instant on the outside, but the work that goes into bringing two dominant characters together is never easy.

A Romance Virgin’s First Cover Shoot

Behind the Scenes of Jaci Burton's Cover Shoot

How people come into the romance world can differ wildly. It can be as simple as finding a book in the library that hooks you for life, or as complex as being discovered in a gym to star as a cover model for one of romance’s hottest authors.

The latter is how Derek Nicholas found himself in a New York City studio posing for the cover of Jaci Burton’s fourteenth Play-by-Play novel. Nicholas is a trainer in a gym in New York that happens to be frequented by Berkley’s Associate Director of Publicity, Erin Galloway.

Katie Heaney & Arianna Rebolini Excerpt: Public Relations

Katie Heaney and Arianna Rebolini

Public Relations by Katie Heaney, Arianna Rebolini

Young PR star Rose Reed is thrown into the big leagues when her boss leaves town the day of the firm's meeting with Archie Fox, a young, hot, internationally famous British singer-songwriter. The meeting is going badly until Rose suggests a staged romance with up-and-coming, young indie star Raya. He'll do it, but only if Rose becomes his publicist.

As the faux-mance between Archie and Raya begins to rehabilitate Archie's faltering career, Rose finds his herself having unexpected, inconvenient and definitely unprofessional feelings for the crooner. But do late night texts and impromptu burrito binges mean he feels the same? In the end, Rose will have to decide whether to let her fantasy crush go, or to risk her reputation to be with the charming, handsome, scoundrel-y but sweet pop star she's grown to love.

Get a sneak peek at Katie Heaney, Arianna Rebolini's Public Relations (available May 9, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

I hopped back into bed, took another sip of wine, reopened my laptop, and navigated to Facebook. Not much was happen‑ ing on my newsfeed save a few bar photos automatically added from Instagram, and some quiz results from high school class‑ mates I was friends with. A picture of my college roommate’s three‑month‑old baby popped up, and I made a mental note to call her and check in—something the three‑hour coast‑to‑coast time difference made it all too easy to argue was best saved for another day; to promise myself I’d do the next evening I had free time. But the newsfeed wasn’t what I was after. Either I was going to find a reason to like him more, and then be annoyed that he’d ruined everything by being such a jerk; or I’d find a reason to like him less, and then be annoyed I’d wasted any time on him at all. It was a risk‑free endeavor. I clicked onto the search bar.

Neil… Wait, I realized. Did I not know Neil’s last name? I grabbed my phone and opened our text conversation: just Neil. I dug the card out of my purse; no luck there. I laughed. All of this nonsense over a guy I couldn’t even pick out on Facebook— though I was getting tipsy enough to try. What else was I doing? I switched back to the search bar and leaned against my pillows.

First Look: Valerie Bowman’s Never Trust a Pirate (May 2, 2017)

Never Trust a Pirate by Valerie Bowman

Valerie Bowman
Never Trust a Pirate (The Playful Brides #7)
St. Martin's Press / May 2, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

Valerie Bowman has morphed into an automatic buy for me. Why? Because the woman can write a story that lures me along until the final HEA. You ask, is Never Trust a Pirate just as good as her others? The answer is a demonstrative, Hell, yes. This one has everything. Undercover espionage, pirates, a strong female heroine, a smoking hot male lead, twists in the story, and chemistry. Oh, and I can’t forget the mystery as we read along while Cade Cavendish figures out who the Black Fox is.

You see, we have not one, but two spies, unbeknownst to each other. And ultimately, they’re both after the same person. Though Danielle LaCrosse’s current assignment is none other than the pirate Cade Cavendish, twin brother to Rafe Cavendish. (You’ll remember Rafe and Daphne from the Irresistible Rogue, Playful Brides #4). Posing as a Lady’s maid to the new Viscountess Daphne, Danielle is charged with learning as much as she can about the rogue twin brother, thought to be dead, who has apparently has risen from the grave and is staying with Rafe and Daphne.

7 New Adult Romance Best Bets for April 2017

Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole

This month brings characters that have made decisions or been put in circumstance that have made their lives chaotic. Adulting is hard people! The past can haunt you and sour your future but, these characters while chaotic, aren’t going to take it sitting down. They fight for a future—with partners that are equally determined—that will burn brighter than their pasts

Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole (Amazon | B&N | Kobo) is an emotional thrill ride. This must be read in series order as this book builds upon the history that was previously shared in the books. AK, 1/3 of the psycho trio, is not on the lookout for love when the MC is called upon to rescue Phebe. Phebe’s backstory is one of the most heart wrenching of the series. As we navigate through the dark and twisted tunnels of Cole’s story, Phebe and AK’s love is the only light that can guide you through it. An unputdownable read, I can’t get enough and I’m eagerly awaiting the next.

The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan (Amazon | B&N | Kobo) is part of the Game On series and hilarious!!! I actually haven’t read the rest of the books in the series but I will be sure to rectify that. These two, Chess and Finn, tick off every box in my NA must haves: witty banter, fun story line, and a secondary band of characters that are just as lively as the main characters. Be sure to check out The Hot Shot if you’re looking for a slow-growing romance but plenty of flirting that will fill you with those first-date butterflies. I read this entire book with a smile on my face.

The Greatest Love Songs Don’t Exactly End Happily

The Truth About Love and Dukes by Laura Lee Guhrke

Today we're thrilled to have Laura Lee Guhrke (The Truth About Love and Dukes) to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Many authors get inspired by music while they write, but it's sad to say... many of the greatest love songs in music don't actually end all that happily. Laura Lee is here today to how popular love songs and romance novels can differ so much when it comes to their endings. Thanks, Laura Lee!

In a romance novel, a happy ending is a given. That’s why I began reading romances, and I’ve always been sure that’s why my fellow readers read them. For most of my life, I’ve been convinced that everyone wants a happy ending. Because, well, why wouldn’t you? Life’s hard enough, right?

But the other day while listening to Pandora, it occurred to me that many, if not most, popular songs (at least those that appeal to anyone over thirteen) do not have happy endings. Every rose has its thorn, after all, and cowboys, so Axel Rose tells us, sing their sad, sad songs. Heck, Taylor Swift has made an entire career based on her notoriously unhappy love life. Another man, another break-up, another million dollars…actually, that’s not so sad, when I think about it.

Anyway, even I, romance writer and lover of happy endings that I am, have been known to find inspiration in songs that aren’t exactly happy. In my latest book, The Truth About Love and Dukes, the Victorian-era couple find love because of the heroine’s advice-to-the-lovelorn column, and while it has its HEA, the inspiration for the book was a song called “Want Ad Blues.” Blues songs aren’t known for spreading happiness and good cheer.

Helena Hunting Excerpt: Shacking Up

Helena Hunting

Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can’t seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed—and then coughed on—her at a party the night before.

Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity; a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he’s out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick.

Get a sneak peek at Helena Hunting's Shacking Up (available May 30, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Noise wakes me at 5:36 in the morning. It takes me a few seconds to orient myself to the unfamiliar surroundings. I’m not used to the mostly quiet, so the footsteps and the sound of a suitcase being wheeled down the hall seem louder than they probably are.

Bancroft must be leaving for the airport. We said goodbye last night, but I’m suddenly very awake, and alert. I won’t see him for five weeks. I stare at the ceiling while I listen to him tooling around in the kitchen, trying to decide if I should get up and say goodbye again or stay where I am. My vagina decides for me. She wants a visual hit of Bancroft before he leaves for the next month.

Seized by Seduction (The Protectors #)
HQN Books / April 25, 2017 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital

When starting to read a Brenda Jackson book, you can’t help but think about the hundreds of books this author has written.  My own mother at some point was reading her books and I now am an avid reader of Brenda Jackson’s books.  To have this body of work and the ability to write sinful romance books for so many years made me think how gifted she is as a writer.  Since I stole a copy of her books from my mother so many years ago to today, I feel like I have grown in my own reading taste as much as she has grown as a writer.  I love this author’s style of writing. She is into painting a picture of the scene you’re in and easily being able to tell you what’s going on.  I can also see the characters in my mind clearly and can follow any complex plot she might think of.  So I jumped at the chance to read the advance copy of her new book.

Two Sides to Every “Nice” Guy: A Case Study

Source: Shutterstock

As the adage goes, “nice guys finish last.” Out in the real world this may not be the case. I always like the nice guy—I think a lot of us do! However, for every nice guy in real life, there's a not-so Nice Guy in fiction... who thinks he's a nice guy. Sadly, for many nice guys in fiction, there's a sense of entitlement and arrogance that makes them Bad Nice Guys. 

The “Bad” Nice Guy

This might be an unpopular opinion, but Ross Geller is the worst. That doesn't mean that I don't love him, love his characters, and accept him. However, here is where this nice guy turns into a not-so-nice guy: Entitlement. Throughout the first few seasons of Friends, in particular, Ross frequently felt that he should be with Rachel simply because he had known her first, because he was the nicer guy and therefore deserving of her attention. That level of entitlement is exactly why I never could really root for that relationship on the show (I was always a Mondler fan). Being a nice guy does not mean you inherently are deserving of things. It means that when nice things happen to you people will say “Oh, it's so great that that happened since he's so nice.”

Historical Romance Heroines with Unconventional Occupations—She Can Bring Home the Bacon!

Blame it on the Duke by Lenora Bell

Today we're thrilled to welcome Lenora Bell (Blame It on the Duke) to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Lenora's latest release features a linguist heroine who is very talented at translations. However, there are tons of heroines in historical romance who have also have unique careers—especially for their time. Lenora is here today to talk about those different careers! Thanks, Lenora!

Psst: This post may contain some light spoilers! 

Think historical romance heroines languish around on velvet sofas waiting for a duke to put a ring on it? Think again! Today’s historical heroines are just as fierce, fearless, intelligent, and freethinking as their contemporary counterparts. And while professions for women were limited throughout history, many of these heroines were inspired by actual trailblazing women from the past! Here are ten of my favorite stereotype-busting historical heroines with unconventional occupations from books I love and highly recommend.

1. Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas

I fell in love with eccentric Lady Pandora Ravenel and her diary, half of which is filled with ideas and sketches for board games, and half with Facts and Observations on Impending Matrimonial Doom stemming from a compromising encounter with a wickedly handsome stranger. Kleypas has said that her inspiration for Pandora was real life historical game designer Elizabeth Magie who never received credit or financial success for designing the precursor to Monopoly.

Kate Baxter Excerpt: The Untamed Vampire

Kate Baxter

The Untamed Vampire by Kate Baxter

Chelle is not your typical vampire. Turned not with a bite but an age-old magic, she’s the only one of her kind—and more powerful than most. Still adjusting to her endless thirst and lethal fangs, she’s desperate to discover what sets her apart. When she encounters a brutally virile alpha werewolf, she soon learns that she’s not immune to the mating call—and her own primal longing…

The leader of the ancient Forkbeard pack, Gunnar is stunned by Chelle’s lush beauty. The wild wolf inside him howls for her, but unions between vampire and werewolf are strictly taboo—even if their clans weren’t on the verge of war. Desire has never been so dangerous…but, as a malevolent new power rises, Chelle and Gunnar face an even more frightening threat. Together, they might find a way to save their clans. But can they claim their passion, in The Untamed Vampire by Kate Baxter.

Get a sneak peek at Kate Baxter's The Untamed Vampire (available May 2, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

CHAPTER 1

“I want to see Siobhan.”

Chelle Daly waited as Mikhail Aristov, the vampire king, studied her. The unnerving quiet, the penetrating intensity of his cool blue gaze sent a ripple over her skin. Mikhail was powerful. But did his power rival hers? That was the point of today’s meeting. Chelle needed answers and the first step to getting them was a face-to-face with a dhampir she’d been forbidden to visit. It had been months since Chelle had seen Siobhan and the female had something she needed.

“Why?”

The one word hung in the air. No inflection gave away Mikhail’s mood. Figures. He loved to keep people guessing. Chelle was no exception. In fact, he kept her more in the dark than most. Chelle wasn’t a member of Mikhail’s coven. She wasn’t connected to the Collective. The memories of vampires long since dead didn’t float around in her noggin like they did Mikhail’s. Chelle was different. Other. Made a vampire through magic and not by the bite and blood of another vampire. Chelle was a dangerous variable and Mikhail knew it.

First Look: Elle Kennedy’s Midnight Target (April 25, 2017)

Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy

Elle Kennedy
Midnight Target (Killer Instincts #8)
Berkley / April 25, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

In her final book of the Killer Instinct series, Elle Kennedy gives us a novel so full of danger and heart-pounding excitement that I would recommend making sure you can finish it once you start because putting it down is not an option.

Cate Morgan is in a South American city which is on the verge of implosion.  She saw something she shouldn’t and gets caught in the cross hairs of one of the bloodiest cartels. Jim Morgan takes his team in to bring his daughter home and as shots are fired between the mercs and the drug lords, lives are lost and the hatred and retaliation grows as both sides refuse to stop until the other is destroyed.  

As this series draws to an end, Elle Kennedy brings us not one romance but two in Midnight Target. The last few books have left us panting for the resolution of these problematic romances and in doing so she also makes us pause and question how often we live our lives making decisions to please others rather than ourselves.
