My guest today is joining me from Austin,Texas. I’m a huge fan of her Highland Grooms historical series and have read many of her historical romance titles, but wasn’t aware until recently that she also writes contemporary romance Series) and contemporary women’s fiction.

Now I need to check out her Pine River and Cedar Springs series and also the Lake Haven novels!! (If you follow this blog weekly you'll have some idea of how long my TBR list is!!!) I'm sure when I read them they'll go on my keeper shelf along with the stories I have from her series The Desperate Debutantes (love that name!!), The Cabot Sisters, the Scandalous series, and The Secrets of Hadley Green.

While I’ve never met this fabulous NY Times, USA Today & Publisher’s Weekly Bestselling author, I’m looking forward to catching up and saying 'Hi' in New Orleans at the inaugural Booklovers’ Convention. Not only do I love the stories I’ve read, but I was also looking through the Bio on her web page …

Jennifer, welcome! Can you tell us whether your upcoming release has posed any particular challenges for you?
My upcoming release STORM AND FURY was one of the hardest books I've written, because the main character shares the same degenerative eye disease retinitis pigmentosa as I do, so it not only made the book more personal to me than any o…

Guest Author: Sabrina York

I I first met my guest today at an RT Convention where she was handing out bling for lanyards. Our conversation was quite short at the time, so it’s wonderful to have her here as my guest today where I can ‘chat’ to her some more.
Her Royal Hotness, Sabrina York, is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author of hot, humorous romances. Her titles range from sweet & snarky to scorching romance in historical, contemporary and fantasy sub-genres. I’m a fan of her historical romances and haven’t yet explored her other stories. When I visited her webpage I was amazed to see that the variety of stories she writes—Hot Cowboys; Paranormal Fantasy; Scorching Seals; Military Romance; Untamed Highlanders; Waterloo Heroes and the list continues (and so does my “To Be Read” pile!!). Sabrina’s a RITA Nominated Author (2017 Susana and the Scot) and has won multiple industry awards for her work. She’s one of the fabulous authors who’ll be at the inaugural Booklovers Convention in New Orlea…
