Who’s Your Hero?

Heroes? I love them all Long live the Alpha hero, the guy who is tough, strong, assertive, and in charge. But bring on the Beta, gentle and loyal, as long as he is also mysterious, and complex. Spare me the Alpha-hole, however, the guy who treats people, especially...

History or Romance?

When I see posts about historical accuracy in romance novels—and there have been several lately—they always seem to be written by people complaining about pet peeves. They range from folks who get excited about the fine points of Regency etiquette, to people upset...
