Brooklyn Ann’s 5 Reasons ROMP is better than Stomp

Brooklyn Ann’s 5 Reasons ROMP is better than Stomp

Don’t get me wrong, I adore kick ass urban fantasy, but something always brings me back to romance. As a writer it is because my characters keep falling in love. As a reader, I guess it’s because something about romance touches me deeper and has a bigger impact on me than action-packed butt-kicking fests. But why? It never occurred to me to wonder about that until I was invited to participate in this delightful event. I’ve come up with a list of reasons why “Romp” beats out “Stomp.” 1.) Love is a bigger challenge.  Other enemies and obstacles can be beat up, shot, or set on fire, but you can’t fight your feelings for someone.  2.) So much attention is focused on the little things.  If I were a […]


A Romp-o-licious Snippet from ANTE UP by Amanda Carlson

A Romp-o-licious Snippet from ANTE UP by Amanda Carlson

Posted August 11, 2014 by Jennifer in Stomp vs Romp 2014 | 8 Comments

  A sexy snippet from ANTE UP, the third installment of the Sin City Collectors series. ANTE UP releases on 8/18/14. ACES WILD, the first by Amanda, and QUEEN OF HEARTS, by Kristen Painter are both available now.        Sofia Cabrera is having a very naughty dream about her shifter. Or is she?   Sofia woke with a start, panting. Her brain felt hazy, but she chalked it up to lack of sleep. She hadn’t gotten a lot in the last few weeks. The move had consumed most of her time, and she was bone-tired. Her house was well warded, and no alarms had been triggered, so she turned and nestled deeper under the covers, pulling her soft duvet cover around her for […]

Being a Romper vs a Stomper with Sara Humphreys

Being a Romper vs a Stomper with Sara Humphreys

Being a Lover vs. a Fighter: An Interview with Shane Quesada.   As a paranormal romance author, I adore both the romp and stomp of romance but the truth is, we wouldn’t have a romance novel without the romp. Those alpha males, which I adore, can stomp all they want but if they don’t bring the romp…then it wouldn’t be a romance at all. I thought I’d let my latest hero, Shane Quesada argue the point. Me: Shane, you’re four hundred years old and a sentry for the vampire government. Correct? Would it be fair to say that until recently you would have asked to be on Team Stomp and not Team Romp? Shane: That is accurate. I have worked as a sentry enforcer for […]


Romping with Terry Spear’s Jaguar Shifters

Romping with Terry Spear’s Jaguar Shifters

When Dating a Jaguar Shifter Is the Norm by Terry Spear   Jaguars love to climb, to swim, to play, to hunt—YOU, preferably—and to love. The perfect animal in writing a shifter romance.   These big cats love the heat. The hotter the better. Which is a characteristic that shifters in my Heart of the Jaguar series retain as they transform into their human forms. Just imagine the romance of the fragrance of native flowers scenting the air, Spanish music of amore playing overhead, the fun with riding the rapids, horseback riding, and waterfall rappelling. There is a lot of adventure in these tales.   Most of all, jaguars are playful. But they’re also serious when it comes to protecting their territory—and you, if you’re […]

Michelle M. Pillow asks Sexy magick or just plain huh?

Sexy Scottish Warlock vs. Whatever the Urban Fantasy people pull out of the goblin tunnels. Please. How is this even a contest? On one side you have a sexy power-wielding alpha, someone you can take out in public and will throw fireballs in defense of your honor. On the other you have what? A half-troll, half-human hybrid? Sure, he’s got some ninja skills and can manifest himself into various shapes—which is kinda cool—but what woman wants to say, “Check out my manfriend. No, not the sexy Scottish Warlock MacGregor wearing nothing under his kilt, I mean the kobold drooling in the corner. And it might take some work, but you stand a better chance of getting a wedding band out of warlock. Goblins aren’t exactly […]
