  • What is it about fairy tales that makes them timeless? Katherine Reay muses on that question here.
  • And speaking of fairy tales, here’s the latest “Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings” illustration.
  • I’m not a huge fan of 50 Shades of Grey, but, I am a fan of Jamie Dornan *swoon.*  Whether you’re a 50 Shades addict, a Jamie Dornan lover, or a hater of both those things, here’s a look from Heroes and Heartbreaks at the first poster for the movie.
  • Lately, I’ve been burnt out on erotica/erotic romance and have been re-visiting my love for historicals.  Tessa Dare has quickly become one of my favorite historical authors; she consistently writes romantic, engaging, and lovely stories.  Her latest book and the first in a new series, Romancing the Duke is coming out in two days!
  • Since I’m a college student, it’s only appropriate that I try to marry academia and romance. Thankfully, others do it for me! Maria Nilson has recently published an interesting article discussing sex, power, and the romance novel.
  • Life of a Dude in Publishing is one of the best publishing blogs out there and this particular gif is so perfect, especially after my internship at Penguin this past semester.
  • I am a huge Harlequin fan and I am also frequently broke, so the Harlequin Extras, completely free stories on their website, is pretty much my favorite thing ever.
  • And for those others whose pockets seem to be perpetually empty, Tempt Me at Twilight, the third book of the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas is now $3.99 at most e-booksellers.
