The Rec League: Winter Olympics

What a timely request! Thanks to Monique for sending this one in: In one of my Facebook readers groups, someone posted a picture of the ridiculously HOT team USA men’s bobsledding team. So my curiosity got the better of me and I deep dived into google to see if there were any bobsled romances. Show More Summary

Shot on Gold by Jaci Burton

Before I get into this romance, I want to state that I don’t really follow much of the Olympics. I get my Olympic news from my roommate and from Twitter, which means I can’t really comment on the accuracy of how the events are portrayed in this book. Show More Summary

It’s Wednesday! And Boston’s weather is having a moment. The high is 69 today (nice), but we’re due for snow tomorrow. I just came back from a rather relaxing reading retreat and it’s a struggle to drag myself to the gym. What I’m trying to say is that my life is all over the place and I hope your Wednesday is faring better. Show More Summary

Greetings! It’s almost a new month, and we have some excellent opportunities for advertisement in March, including some new options! So are you publishing a new book or novella, or part of a boxed set? Maybe you have nifty editorialShow More Summary

The Man in the Black Suit by Sylvain Reynard

I was all excited to read The Man in the Black Suit. It’s a jet-setting, glamorous romantic suspense set around the art world, and if you wrote all those things on a piece of paper and put it under a propped up box, you’d have yourself an effective Elyse trap. Show More Summary

HaBO: Tennis-Playing British Prince

This HaBO request comes from Starlight Archer, who wants to find this really cute sounded royal romance: I’m on the hunt for a book that I sampled a couple years ago. From what I recall, it’s a modern day Sports/Royalty mashup. Our hero...Show More Summary

HaBO Double Dose: Mansion Parties & the Outback

These two HaBOs are from Sarah (not our Sarah): These are the two very first romance novels I ever read. I grew up on a mission base in South America, and found a bunch of old Harlequin paperbacks in the oldest house on the base one day exploring. Show More Summary

Elyse Watches The Bachelor – Episode 8: Mhmmm

Happy Monday (or Tuesday when you read this, I guess) everyone. It’s time for The Bachelor. There’s a massive ice storm going on outside right now, one that’s projected to cause widespread power outages, so earlier today I messaged the...Show More Summary

Keeper Shelf: Feed by Mira Grant

I’m back with another Keeper Shelf squee! If you missed my first one, I talked about my deep love of Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen and how it tapped into my feelings about how people might view me in relation to both my own and my mother’s mental illness. Show More Summary

Romance Wanderlust: Literary Hotels

Back in November, 2017, I wrote a Romance Wanderlust piece about apartments in the New York City Library branches. The response to that column convinced me that yes, we do love our castles and treehouses and our Regency estates, but what really gets the Bitches excited is being around a lot of books.

Book Beat: Astronauts, Activism, & Beowulf

Welcome to Book Beat! Think of Book Beat as Hide Your Wallet, Part Two! In Hide Your Wallet, we talk about books coming out in a particular month that we really want to read. But there’s more to good books than just new releases! Book Beat aims to highlight other books that we may hear about through friends, social media, or other sources. Show More Summary
