Mad About Romance: Gena Showalter

I was recently introduced to Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series.   If you aren’t familiar with it, let me introduce you to the rich world filled with Greek Gods, mad Titans, immortal warriors, demon lords and angelic beings – just to name a few.  Opening Pandora’s Box Ages ago, the Greek gods trapped the wild and furious demon lords of Violence, Pain, Disease, Misery, Wrath and more in a box created from the bones of the Greek Goddess of Oppression.

Mad About Romance: Kresley Cole

July is mad about romance month here at the Daily Dose. We should have kicked this off three days ago but an unexpected migraine decided to pay court to me and nothing I did would dissuade this ardent lover’s advances. So that being said, let’s kick off Mad About Romance as we celebrate the Romance Writers of America’s National Convention which kicks off at the end of the month in Orlando, Florida. This is my first year to attend so I wanted to celebrate it up right. Today, I want to focus my mad about romance attention on paranormal romance […]
