AUSTRALIA'S FAVOURITE AUTHOR
Last month I briefly talked about Kylie Scott but didn't get a chance to talk about her books. Her Stage Dive series features rockstar heroes and has become so popular that the books will now also be out in print. You might want to get these just for those covers alone!

(Stage Dive, Book 1)
by Kylie Scott


Lick has one of the funniest first chapters I've read this year. Ev wakes up with a huge hangover and finds herself married to sexy guitarist David...who is not impressed that she can't remember a single thing about their Elvis wedding. Divorce seems inevitable, but as Ev and David spend more time together, they realise that maybe, just maybe, their quickie wedding might turn out to be one of the best things that has happened to them.

Although this book can sit in the new adult category---Ev and David are in their twenties, and it's told from Eve's point of view---the romance is definitely very grown up. Kylie Scott's writing is witty and fun, and although Ev isn't as experienced as David, she's no blushing virgin either. If you love modern heroines, this one is definitely worth a try. 

(If this book sounds familiar, it's because it was originally released as ebook only last year, featuring a very different cover. I have to say that I much prefer this new cover, but the story is just as good either way!)

(Stage Dive, Book 2)
by Kylie Scott


The second book of the series features Mal, Stage Dive's happy-go-lucky drummer. Anne is a huge fan and can barely look at him without 'crazy eyes'. It's fun to watch Anne's excruciatingly awkward celebrity crush and Mal's teasing. She agrees to be his pretend girlfriend, and he moves in with her to help her out with her rent after her roommate runs off without paying her share. Mal isn't quite himself, though. He's going through a particularly tough time, but he won't confide in anyone. Anne tries to keep her distance, but she sees beyond Mal's bravado and charm-what-may attitude, and finds herself falling for him.

Anyone who has ever talked to a celebrity poster on their bedroom wall will find this story a complete delight. It does have some dark moments, but the best parts are all around Mal and Anne and their fabulous dialogue. The sex scenes in Play are explicit but oh, so fun. Mal is as charming in the bedroom as he is out of it. If he's not already your favourite character in this series, he will be by the time you get to the end of this book!

(Catcher Creek, Book 3)
by Melissa Cutler

 
Single mum Jenna Sorentino is a woman with a past---one that she's determined to escape. Matt Roenick is definitely attracted to her, but he's been burned in the past and the thought of getting hurt things don't work out has him keeping his distance. Of course, this will never do in romance, and when these two finally get together---whoa, baby, that cover doesn't even start to convey how hot they get between the sheets (or, for that matter, out of them)!

Eventually, Jenna's secrets will come out, Matt has to decide if he can fully accept Jenna and five-year old Tommy into his heart.

SPARKS FLY IN RURAL ROMANCE
OUTBACK BLAZEClick here for more details or to order
(Bunyip Bay, Book 2)
by Rachael Johns


Ruby Jones and Drew Noble are both in Bunyip Bay to start afresh, and neither are looking for love. But when Drew, a local police officer, investigates a case of arson that decimates The Ag Store, owned by Ruby's parents, it's not long before they realise that the past may not be done with them yet...and that love might just find them even when they're not looking for it.

Australian author Rachael Johns is one of my favourite rural romance authors. In Outback Blaze she tries her hand at a little romantic suspense and the result is a much edgier story that I think her fans will enjoy. As a bonus, the book ends with Bunyip Bay's annual Undies Run, in which the town's hottest men run in their undies...for charity, of course. The lead-up to this event provides some hilarious moments!

by Jo Goodman


Jane Middlebourne travels to Bitter Springs, Wyoming to escape her family...and meet her future husband. When Morgan Longstreet advertised for a wife, he was looking for someone who can help him manage his ranch---and Jane isn't exactly what he had expected. But there's more steel to her spine and strength in her bones than a first look would imply, and soon they're starting a tentative new life together.

But they're both keeping secrets---secrets too terrible to reveal when their marriage is still so fragile. When Morgan's violent past catches up with him, he knows he will do anything to protect the woman he has come to love.

Jo Goodman is one of my favourite historical authors. In Want of a Wife is a slow, delicious romance that brings to life the rough beauty of the American West. If you love to savour words and thrill at subtle nuances of dialogue, I can't recommend this book enough.

NINE NAUGHTY QUESTIONS WITH KYLIE SCOTT
Kylie ScottI first heard of Australian author Kylie Scott when she released her zombie romances Flesh and Skin, but many readers will know her for her exciting rockstar romance Lick. Either way, Australian readers certainly love her books. Skin won the Australian Romance Readers Award for favourite erotic romance, and Kylie was named our favourite Australian romance author. It's a big year for Kylie, with the release of her second Stage Dive series book, Play, featuring a drummer hero and a heroine with a seriously embarrassing crush on him (scroll up to the top of the Buzz to see my review of the Stage Dive books). I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

You can find out more about Kylie and her books by visiting her website at kylie-scott.com, liking her on Facebook, or following her on Twitter at @KylieScottbooks.

1. Headless washboard abs, a torrid embrace, the sprawling homestead, an elegantly dressed décolletage, or the vaguely kinky object against a dark background - what's your favourite type of romance cover and why?

I'm going to have to go with the headless washboard abs. Let's not look too closely into why (all the bad reasons).

2. What is the secret life of a romance writer? What goes on between you andClick here for more details or to order your keyboard (or quill) behind closed doors?


Pyjamas, numerous coffees, a dash of social media, and lots of putting my daydreams down onto the page then kicking them into story shape.

3. At the heart of a romantic story is the way in which the main characters reveal their true natures to each other. How much of yourself do you put into your characters, and have their stories been affected by your personal experiences?

I think it's impossible to leave yourself out of your main characters. Your fantasies and failings both wind up shaping them. If you're going to take a walk around inside a fictional character's head, live their life, and understand their motivations, you have to 'get them' on that base level. As for personal experiences, I claim the fifth amendment.

4. I'm interested in how you differentiate between romance fiction, erotica and porn. Are romance readers getting naughtier?

Romance fiction is a story where if you left out the romance, you wouldn't have a story. It ranges from sweet to sweaty with a happy ever after at the end. Erotica is highly descriptive and often centres on the sexual journey of the characters. Porn is gritty masturbation material where story doesn't much matter. I think there's always been a variety of heat levels available, we're just seeing erotic romance and erotica being more publicly accepted and accessible these days.

Click here for more details or to order5. Please tell us about your latest novel! Did you have a secret alternative title while you were writing it?

Mal, the drummer's book, was just recently released. He's kind of a hurricane. A very big, in-your-face, funny personality who demands all the space on the page. I think his heroine, Anne, did quite well holding her own up against him. She went with the crazy a lot of the time, but when it mattered to her she dug her feet in and stood up for herself. I tried to think of titles that were musical and he just does play the drums. But he also just is playful, so that one worked well for him.

6. What's the most memorable reaction you've received after a friend or family member read one of your books?

My mum is very impressed that her neighbour read my book and liked it. For her, that was pretty much up there with my making it onto the New York Times list. I thought that was sweet.

7. Romance writers are sometimes denigrated and asked when they'll write 'real' books - what do you tell the haters?


It kind of amazes me that people run down books centring on romantic relationships. Those relationships are usually the most important and most meaningful that we have in our lifetime.

8. Romance readers love discovering new authors. Please tell us about five

Jessica Park's Left Drowning
Joanna Wylde's Reapers Legacy
Jen Fredericks and Jessica Clare's Last Breath
Lili Saint Germain's Seven Sons Series
Belle Aurora's Raw

9. Please tell us your favourite scene from your latest book, and why it's particularly delicious!

Ooh, that's hard. I think my favourite scene from Play would be the jumping-on-the-bed scene. When Mal and Anne are defending their fake love life against the noisy neighbours having sex. It was hot and ridiculous all rolled into one.

Kylie, thank you for playing.
