Several people have commented on it, so I thought readers might like to see an expanded version of my thought process. Before I start, though, I want to… Read more »
I need help. You may have noticed that I haven’t been online this week–odd behavior for an author who’s about to have a book release. We’ve had a family emergency that has occupied my time and will put me on a plane the day How Beauty Loved the Beast hits the virtual shelves. I’m… Read more »

The beginning of Chapter 2 from How Beauty Saved the Beast, the second book in the Tales of the Underlight series. Sweaty bodies, heavy breathing, one man, one woman…and for two months, Hauk and Jolie had somehow kept their near-daily workouts from being awkward. Jolie had been consistently impressed with how easy Hauk was to… Read more »
A holiday post from How Beauty Met the Beast, available now from Carina Press. The speaker is our heroine, Jolie Benoit, as she introduces her burlesque act, “I’ll Get Nothing–and Like It.” “We get one day—one day—of presents for three hundred and sixty-four days of being good.
