Blaze of Winter by Elisabeth BarrettWe've asked author Elisabeth Barrett to join us today to talk about why she thinks the smartest guys are also the sexiest. Elisabeth's new release, Blaze of Winter, features a tall, smart, and handsome novelist nicknamed “The Professor,” a masterminding whiz who plots his own happy ever after with a sweet stranger. Thanks for visiting, Elisabeth!

“Brainy's the new sexy.” —Irene Adler, Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia (Ep. 2.1)

I was going to call this post “Hot for Teacher” until I realized that all the hot professors I know probably wouldn’t appreciate being called out in a public blog post for attributes other than their intelligence. So I settled on “intellectuals” – it gave me a broader range with which to work – as a platform to discuss why intelligence is so sexy.

Deep Autumn Heat by Elisabeth BarrettElisabeth Barrett’s debut novel, Deep Autumn Heat, set on Cape Cod and featuring two hot-as-heck chefs, a bit of intrigue, and one fabulous coconut cake, releases on July 9thToday, Elisabeth joins us to talk about books that straddle the line between romance and suspense. Thanks, Elisabeth!

Who likes their romance to include a little mystery and intrigue?

*raises hand*

While I adore straight-up romance, as well as straight-up mystery/intrigue/suspense, most of the books on my keeper shelf straddle both genres (either romantic suspense, or contemporary with a suspense sub-plot). There’s something about two people who need to trust each other in order to navigate something dangerous that speaks to me. It brings the characters closer, faster, even though they might not be ready for it. Of course, when the stakes are higher, there’s also more to lose.
