JULIE from Stephenville, TX

My name is Julie and I am a proud Texan, wife, mother of two grown children, I love and spoil my two Cocker Spaniels, and three cats.  I read, review, blog, promote books and repeat,  and my favorite genres are romantic suspense, mysteries, and historical romance.  I am also a bit of a tech nerd, collect vintage paperbacks, love puzzle games,  Diet Coke, dark chocolate, dark beer, and red wine and will always hold a special place in my heart for Mr. Darcy.




Kathy ArguellesKATHY from Elk Grove, CA

I’m a wife, mom and blogger. I’m addicted to reading!  I love all genres, especially paranormal romance and historical highland romance because both genres have intense and passionate male characters who worship the ground their mates walk on (and what woman wouldn’t want that?!).





CHRISSY fromChrissy Midlothian, TX

I’m originally from Pittsburgh PA but have been living in Texas for the last 10 years, but that doesn’t mean I’m still not an AVID Pittsburgh Steelers Fan. I’m a  full time Quality Assurance Tester by day, and an avid reader and blogger by night. I love to read all types of books, but my favorite genre to read is romance (anything from YA to Erotic and everything in between).






VICTORIA from Allendale, NJ

Hello my name is Victoria Colotta and I am a Bookaholic. You will see countless books from all genres lining my shelves with a healthy dose of Romance and Mystery Novels in the mix. I read just about anything, review books on my blog Art, Books, & Coffee, shamelessly promote the authors I love, and even take it as far as designing books for a living through my company VMC Art & Design. All of this can only be done with an insane amount of coffee that is running through my veins.  Finally, my life is rounded out with the fact that I am the proud Mom to my puppy/nutbar, Lizzy who is book lover herself.




BrandiBRANDI from Jonesboro, AR

I’m a former reporter turned PR beginner who loves to craft, bake, read and watch TV.  Audiobooks are often my favorite because I can multitask while listening to a book. I will read almost anything but I prefer YA fiction including the “Mortal Instruments” series, “Delirium,” “Cinder” “Throne of Glass” and more!




NADINE Nadinefrom San Francisco, CA

I’m Nadine, born and raised in Germany but living for the past seven years in beautiful San Francisco. Besides blogging and reviewing I’m an English literature BA student and event host of the San Fran Golden Gate Author Event. If I’ve had too much reality I open a book, so every other day, and like to get lost in either a NA romance with a twist or paranormal/urban fantasy romance.
