Diversity in Romance With Brilliant Author Elise Marion

71xltwle9xl-_ux250_Elise Marion, author of the Chained series, was generous enough to do an interview with me in anticipation of our War Bride giveaway event. It’s a pleasure to be working with her and to have her on the blog. She has some great answers, including her opinion on the lack of diversity in books. I highly recommend you read her work, because she really is a fantastic writer.

I’m going to earn your trust, Emery Toustain, he thought as he released her hand. Perhaps, if you let me, I’ll earn more than that. 

The first time I read War Bride was several months ago. It was so good I actually missed a call from my boss because I was so busy reading it. No, really. I didn’t even “ignore” the call. The fact that my phone was ringing didn’t even register because I was so absorbed in the book. I ended up finishing it in less than a day. 

I just finished it for the second time today, and it’s still incredible. 

Emery Calliot kicks ass.

5 Teen Romance Novels to Read If You Like Jackie and Hyde from That 70’s Show

tumblr_lo3sjpglvz1qbtz74o1_500Okay, I have a huge confession: I’ve been watching a lot more of That 70’s Show than I should be. And I really like Jackie and Hyde together. They’re a hilarious and unlikely pair with great chemistry, which makes them one of the most popular pairs on the show.

For those of you who haven’t watched That 70’s Show, the show is about a group of teenagers growing up in rural Wisconsin in the 70’s. Jackie is a rich, spoiled, and shallow girl while Hyde is the group’s burnout bad boy. Orphaned, broke, and not at all interested in applying himself for a better life, he seems like a very poor match for the status-obsessed Jackie. But somehow they manage to keep from killing each other and bring out the best in each other. Here are 5 teen romances to read today if you like Jackie and Hyde together.

I trembled. “An abyss and danger,” was all I could say.
