Hello! I hope this finds you well. I’ve just returned from a birthday getaway for my husband and also a writing weekend with an author friend, where we plotted a new book together. Of course, masks and social distancing were a part of both weekends, but I still had an enjoyable time in Daytona Beach with Sheri Lynn and on Amelia Island with the hubby.
In other news, I have a new release today. Well, actually, it’s a re-release of an old favorite of mine. I wrote this fantasy romance back in 2015. We’ve given it a facelift and put it back up for sale. Let me tell you about it:
The love story of Princess Raven, banished to the tower by her father at the tender age of three, and Prince Richard, the hottie with a firm hand whose attempt to rescue her results in a feud between their kingdoms, is a modern day fairy tale cross between Rapunzel and Romeo and Juliet.
The couple finds an unlikely ally in Queen Lydia, the not- so-evil stepmother, but when it comes down to a choice between their respective thrones and the love they’ve discovered, is the relationship doomed forever?
Publisher’s Note: This fantasy tale contains graphic scenes and a theme of power exchange.
Three oldies but goodies from Isabella Kole, with a little mystery, some stubbornness, and a rekindled love affair.
Hannah’s Horror Hannah has a gift, but to her, it’s more like a curse. Can she use it in the way it is intended without getting in trouble with her boyfriend? Three trips over one summer break may hold the key for Hannah and Chad’s future.
The Seduction of EJ EJ Haney is finished with dating. After the last disastrous relationship, she isn’t in the mood to try again. She is resigned to becoming an old maid schoolteacher.
But the new principal in town has different ideas. Jacob Ransing is determined to change her mind and is pulling out all the stops to make her his.
Her Captain’s Command From the moment his new XO, Lieutenant Commander Vandecamp, walks onto his ship and Blaine discovers that she is, in fact, not only a woman, but his former lover, Charlotte Rose Hanna, the two ex-lovers will endure many moments of angst until the day she is called home on emergency leave.
At the end of their WestPac deployment, will they decide to go their separate ways again or will they choose a very different solution to their current situation?
Publisher’s Note: All three stories contain a theme of power exchange.

Isabella Kole has written five historical romances since 2015. Now, you can have all five of them in one collection, His Rules Collection.
Let me tell you a little about them.
Love is complicated. Sometimes a lady needs discipline.
She’s a servant. He’s a duke. Her heart has belonged to him since childhood, but he’s to wed another. Will he call off his arranged marriage to be with a girl that works in his household?
Three feisty young ladies in this collection of five spicy historical tales from Isabella Kole’s collection.
The Highlander’s Curse Amanda Brown has just inherited a castle in Scotland. What she doesn’t know is that a centuries old Highlander comes with it.
Ian Galloway has been cursed, and now it’s time for him to roam the countryside once again to find his true love. But will the duke find a woman who is willing to go back in time with him, to change the course of history?
The Marshal and the Heiress Marshal Luke Prescott has searched for his young bride’s murderer for five long years to no avail. When feisty heiress, Clarissa Birmingham, breezes into his town, he finds himself drawn to her, exasperating as she may be.
Headstrong and impetuous, the young beauty quickly learns she will heed Luke’s warnings, or she will pay the price.
Remington’s Rules Emily Crawley and her parents have been in service to the Duke of Remington and his family for years, and now that Emily is of age, she has joined the staff as well. But when the Marquess of Remington, the duke’s eldest son, Charles, returns after his years at school, Emily realizes her heart has always belonged to the handsome Lord. Alas, he is to be wed to the rude and condescending Lady Caroline, a marriage that was arranged years ago. Unless, Emily can change his mind that is!
Emily’s Emergence Emily has just married the man of her dreams, the handsome Marquess of Remington. As she settles into her new role with the man she has loved since childhood, she finds that there are some new adjustments and rules.
But war has been declared and Charles must do his duty to his country, leaving Emily behind to run the estate and care for his parents. Is she up to the task?
Duchess’ Desire Emily and Charles have been reunited after the war and all is well again at Remington House. Well, all but one thing. Emily hasn’t been able to give Charles the ultimate gift, a child.
Suddenly thrust into the role of duchess after the death of her father-in-law, it seems that dream must wait yet again as she and her husband find their way. Their love story continues as the former servant girl-turned duchess amazes everyone with her grace and charm. She has everything she ever wanted, or does she?
Today, I am talking with Author Jenny Plumb! I’m so excited for her to tell you about her new series.
Anna: Hello Jenny. Tell the readers a little about yourself. Where you are from, hobbies etc.
Jenny: I was born and raised in Oregon and haven’t done much traveling outside of the United States. I’m married and have two mostly grown children. Writing has been my hobby for most of my adult life, because I also have a regular Monday through Friday job, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for other hobbies. Although my friends would probably say my other ‘hobby’ is watching / obsessing over certain television shows. Since my books are grounded in reality, it might surprise my readers to know that almost everything I watch has some kind of supernatural element to it. If it’s got a vampire, a werewolf, a ghost, a witch, a zombie, or some other creature in it, I’ve most likely watched it.
Anna: What genre do you write?
Jenny: Everything I write has spanking in it. A story without spanking is as dull to me as eating cake without frosting. Everything I write is also ‘sweet’. There will never be a dark romance from me – I can’t even read them. I need my heroes to have a measure of kindness, even when they’re teaching the heroine a lesson. So far I’ve written in the following sub-genres for Erotic Romances: mystery, suspense, ménage, age play, BDSM, and domestic discipline. At some point in the future I’m sure I’ll write something that has supernatural elements in it.
Anna: Tell us about your latest release.
Jenny: My newest release is titled, May Flowers Campus Life book 5. It’s about a woman named Mia who has escaped an abusive dominant and is afraid to start another BDSM relationship with anyone. But when her friend Aaron rescues her from a robbery in progress and starts showing signs of dominant behavior, she can’t help but wonder if she’d be able to trust again. When Mia’s ex starts harassing her, Aaron’s protective nature goes into overdrive, and Mia finds it harder and harder to keep her submissive side hidden from him.
Anna: What can we look for in the future from you?
Jenny: This year is all about my Campus Life series. A new book will be coming out for each of the twelve months. After that, I’m not sure which of my budding ideas will take the spotlight, but I’m certain that I’ll be writing something, because I can’t seem to stop.
Anna: Is there anything else you’d like to tell us? Contact info? Social media links?
Isabella has a new release! Desire for Discipline Collection contains her first three books ever written, from 2013 and 2014. They’ve been unavailable for a while, but now you can buy the whole series of three in one collection.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a submissive?
Accepting His Terms
Jill Lincoln has the hots for her stern, hunk of a boss, Jarrod Baine. With his piercing steel gray-blue eyes, hair as black as coal, and a body to be enjoyed, she wonders what it would be like to be his woman. But she’s only one of many who would give her eyeteeth to be in his bed. She wins her man, but when Jill suffers a heartbreaking miscarriage and Jarrod is not by her side, she retreats into a deep, dark depression, turning away from the one man who could save her. Will their bond be severed forever?
Submitting to Bryan
Janis Lincoln found the man of her dreams in handsome co-worker, Bryan Walsh, until he tells her exactly the type of marriage he expects. She is shocked. Can she submit completely to him? A free spirit, she balks at his first attempt to discipline her. This isn’t the only obstacle standing in the way of their love. Will Bryan be able to convince Janis she is the only one for him? Can Janis submit completely to Bryan?
The Longing Within
When Lyndsey Green is about to marry the love of her life, she discovers that John is a Dom. She readily agrees to try the lifestyle as a contrast to her busy professional life. But when she suddenly loses her job, her life spins out of control. Will John’s love be enough to keep her on track and bring the balance back to her life?
Publisher’s Note: These three steamy, contemporary romances contain themes of power exchange.
Today, I’m talking to Bethany Bliss. She’s going to tell us a little about herself and her newest book.
Anna: Welcome, Bethany. I’m so glad to have you here today. Tell the readers a little about yourself, where you are from, hobbies, etcetera.
Bethany: I struggle during interviews and can’t tell you how long I sat staring at this question before I could formulate an answer.
I’m quite a boring person who has done some interesting things. Flew to Reno and Utila Honduras to visit friends and learn to scuba dive. Traveled from east coast to west in a car, just me and the dog hiking through grand canyons and driving up pikes peak. I have a kink for learning and love immersing myself in diverse cultures.
I was born and bred in Maryland, but I migrated down to Virginia after our home burned down. In the mountains of Shenandoah Valley, I discovered a passion for natural healing and, of course, writing.
My first attempts at fifteen were pathetic, fifty or so pages of nonsense, completely illegible, though after eight attempts, I managed a draft a publisher wanted. Blushing Books gave me the chance I needed and published two of my manuscripts right off, and I’ve finished two more with a goal of eight submissions to them this year. I’m still surprised when people like them. Last I checked, I hadn’t gotten a review below four stars, yet I’ll always think of my books as I had those first drafts: plenty of improvement to be made.
Anna: What genre do you write?
Bethany: I favor romance. Fantasy or contemporary are my favorite sub-genres to write. I just never tire of constructing stories with danger, suspense, sexy heroes and kick-ass heroines, all submerged in their own little world of my imagining.
Anna: Tell us about your latest release.
Bethany: The Bladed Tiger’s Empress was released April 15th and is the start of a Fantasy romance series called “Claiming Her Empire”. Book one follows Princess Marilla as she is exiled from her castle, becomes a fugitive in her empire, learns to defend and protect herself, then reclaims her crown as Empress all with her most loyal general by her side. The fiercest, strongest, and sexiest warrior, who earned the warrior name Bladed Tiger for his formidable duel blade fighting style.
Anna: What can we look for in the future from you?
Bethany: Another release is anticipated the last week of May as a start of another trilogy. I hope to complete the eight books I have been working on for Blushing Books within the year, releasing two trilogies and two standalone romance novels. That is my ambition. I have already completed four!
Anna: That’s great! Is there anything else you’d like to tell us? Contact info? Social media links?
Bethany: Stalk me for fun times, book reviews, and chances to win giveaways of author swag and free books!
Thank you so much for joining me today, Bethany, and good luck with your writing.
Readers, join us again soon, for another author interview.

When two very different worlds collide…
Hailey is a palm reader, a fortune teller, complete with crystal balls and Tarot cards in her little shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans. She is a throwback to the sixties with her boho style and long, blonde hair.
Joshua is a marketing guy; a handsome business type who has been seeing Hailey professionally for over a year. She predicted his promotion, that he’d find the perfect condo, and just about everything that’s happened in his life recently. But he is ready to find his soulmate, and Hailey hasn’t quite been able to tell him about her, except that there will be someone in his future.
They are as different as day and night, but Hailey has fallen in love with Josh. She knows it can never happen, and it would be unethical for her to predict that she was his soulmate. Josh is attracted to her, too, even though she’s just not his type. But when they begin to go out as friends, they soon discover they have much more in common than they realized. When a lifelong dream that Josh thought was out of his reach becomes a possibility, will he have to choose between that and his new love?
