Join us for our first Twitter book chat next Wednesday, August 15!

Tall, dark, and handsome men are a common theme in books, from classics like Wuthering Heights to the popular Twilight series. The seductive male dominance is definitely hard to ignore E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. What is it about those types of characters that command our attention?

During our Twitter chat, we’ll talk about sex and romance in our books, both classics and contemporary. How much is too much? Why do they still appeal to women today?

Our special guest is author Alma Katsu who is no stranger to tall, dark, and sexy. Alma’s gothic historical novels contains elements of magic, suspense, and, yes, sex. Her latest book The Reckoning: Book Two of the Taker Trilogy explores the very themes we’ll talk about.

Plus, on August 7 & 8 only, you can download Alma’s newest e-book The Marriage Price is FREE on Amazon! I just downloaded it and am looking forward to reading it tonight after the kids are in bed.

Please join us and you can win some great prizes!
