AN AUDIOBOOK FEATURING THE ROMANTIC, MAGICAL ISLAND OF CAPRI
Creating the audiobook of A Home for the Holidays, a short romance novella
by Joe Cosentino, published by Dreamspinner Press, performed by Joel Leslie
Where is the most beautiful, sexy, magical place in the world for you? For me, it is the island of Capri, Italy. I will never forget when, like Kunta Kinte charting his roots, I booked a flight with my spouse to that unique island and had the vacation of a lifetime.
While on the boat ride to the Marina Grande, the … Continue reading
Thank you so much, Hearts On Fire, for having me on the blog today. I’ve brought a steamy excerpt from Bound, the sequel to my erotic fantasy adventure, Clipped, which is due out in September through Wilde City Press. For those who haven’t read the first book, don’t worry. I chose a hot scene that wouldn’t require too much backstory to understand. In The Clipped Saga, God and Satan are ex-lovers. When they broke up, … Continue reading

Give me all the bad sex
I enjoy writing bad sex.
I don’t mean sex that isn’t fulfilling for the people involved or rape—and hopefully not bad sex scenes, either, although I’ll let my readers be the judge. I mean scenes that don’t play out like something out of a porn flick.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a steamy read that makes me glad I splurged for a Kindle, but there’s … Continue reading
Why I Adore Eric Arvin
by Jonathan Penn with Taomi
I suppose it should go without saying that there has never been and will never be another author quite like Eric Arvin. It’s a safe bet that if you’re reading this blog then you’ve already read at least some, if not all, of Eric’s work, so I’ll try not to make this a sales pitch. But I do want to share the thoughts and feelings that have made … Continue reading
We are so happy to welcome BJ Sheppard!
The following guest post was written by BJ Sheppard in character as Liam Adams, the lovable MC in The Rainbow Connection
The Rainbow Connection Blog Tour Posts Part IV: There’s no such thing as a straight man; just a man who hasn’t met me!
Okay, so if I’m honest, this next one is actually one of my favorite tropes. I have lost many an hour trapped within the pages of the perfect story of the burly straight man who finds love with … Continue reading

Those who bear this mark are at risk of becoming possessed themselves, so they are monitored and enslaved by the state-run UCIS. Working as a slave is hard, but Luke prefers it to the possibility … Continue reading
The Backup Boyfriend has a friends to lover theme. Was this difficult to write convincingly? I’ve always loved this theme because of the fantastic potential for internal conflict. Why would two people who already care about each other take a risk that might lead them to losing their friendship? What made the process difficult in The Backup Boyfriend was that Dylan and Alec were strangers at the beginning of the story, and it was very important to me that the progression of their relationship felt realistic. I was told by … Continue reading
