To write this post, I did a little GoodReads research to find out if I had reviewed the three books in this series yet. I'm a little disappointed in myself, if I'm honest.

Culture, Cuisine, and Claiming A Seat At The Table: An Interview with Adriana Herrera

If Virginia is for lovers, then Romancelandia is for dreamers. We live in a world that’s uncertain and often unfair and while a lot of us are putting in the work the change the things we can no longer accept, sometimes we need to rest and reset. And in those times we dream of escaping to a place where we know, in the end, love really will conquer all. Romancelandia is that place. It’s a place where good always (eventually) triumphs over evil, everyone finds their soulmate(s), and “they lived happily ever after” isn’t an ending— it’s a promise.

Release Day Excerpt and Giveaway! - Mating the Huntress, by Talia Hibbert

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 1, 2018 8:53:41 AM / by Suzanne Krohn posted in giveaway, excerpt, book blitz

[fa icon="comment"] 6 Comments

This Halloween, love bites back… hard.

Chastity Adofo knows a monster when she sees one. As soon as Luke Anthony wanders into her family’s coffee shop, she recognises the evil lurking beneath his charming smile and fantastic arse. The handsome werewolf is determined to have her—but she’s determined to cut out his heart. 

Little does she know, Luke’s plans for her are far more pleasurable than murder. And when the full moon rises, all bets are off…

Warning: Mating the Huntress is 30,000 words of red-hot, Halloween-themed romance. This book contains one flirtatious, cursed creature of the night, one badass, knife-happy heroine, and forbidden lust at first sight. Please read responsibly! 





Talia Hibbert lives in a bedroom full of books. Supposedly, there is a world beyond that room—but she has yet to drum up enough interest to investigate. Read her interview with Love in Panels here!




All commenters will be entered into a random prize draw! There will be two winners, who'll each receive a $50 Amazon gift card from Talia Hibbert. Every comment counts as a separate entry; just remember to include a social media handle so we can reach you if you win!

Book Blitz: Sweatpants Season, by Danielle Allen

Dear Reader,

From time to time, we're going to participate in some of these book blitz, cover reveal, or other promotions for books we think you'll like. This is a curated list and will be limited to one a week or so.

Personally? I already bought this book and look forward to curling up with it in some sweatpants of my own!

Check it out and don't forget to enter the giveaway!





He has a big…smile. 
It was the first thing I noticed that day until he stood. His grey sweatpants hung off his hips and I didn’t want to look. I really didn’t. 
I’m a feminist. 
I don’t believe in objectifying men. I don’t catcall men. I don’t ogle the bodies of men. I don’t view men as objects of my affection rather than complex people with feelings, wants, and needs of their own. I don’t treat men the way society often treats women. 

I treat men the way I want to be treated as a woman—with respect! 
So, when Carlos ran into me while I was reviewing my interview questions in the park, it surprised me to see my photography classmate out of context. I was also surprised to see as much of him as I did.
It wasn’t just that it caught my eye. It was the fact that it held my attention.
It wasn’t just that it was large. It was the fact that it was visibly large.
It wasn’t just that it was Carlos Richmond. It was the fact that I am Akila Bishara.
And I am not seduced by anything other than intelligent conversation, witty rapport, and meaningful actions.
I am not seduced by a dick print. 
I am not. 
Seriously, I’m not.

Panthers, Royals, and Families - An Interview with A.C. Arthur

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 13, 2018 10:00:00 AM / by Suzanne Krohn posted in giveaway, interview

[fa icon="comment"] 3 Comments

Back during #RomBkLove, a group of very passionate readers were simply aghast that I hadn't read A.C. Arthur's paranormal romances yet. I knew A.C. Arthur for her Kimani books - contemporary romances and, most recently, a series of royals with some truly great covers. I immediately hopped over to her website, only to realize that she's written many paranormal romances and I had no idea where to start. When I met her at the RWA conference in July, I asked if she'd be willing to do an interview... and here we are!
