In Scribbling Women and the Real-Life Romance Heroes Who Love Them, twenty-eight romance fiction writers reveal their real-life stories of how they met, wed and love—and are loved and supported by—their spouses and life partners. At times whimsical and laugh-out-loud funny (Jacquie D’Alessandro’s "Donny & Me?", Nikoo and Jim McGoldrick’s "Soul Mates for a Thousand Lifetimes"), at others poignant and bittersweet (Elf Ahearn’s "A Lost Friend, A Movie Star, A Man to Love Forever"), all unfailingly inspiring (Lisa Renée Jones’s "Unexpected Treasures"; Deanna Raybourn’s "Once in a Blue Moon"), each essay celebrates that most powerful and sacred of human bonds.
Happily Ever After isn’t only the stuff of romance novels and fairy tales. It is every woman’s birthright.
All net proceeds from sales of the book benefit Win, a NYC charity that transforms the lives of homeless women and their children.

Jacquie D'Alessandro's first contemporary romance. Sisters are known to share many things-but not the same boyfriend. The most basic "girl code" states you never date a friend's ex. So wouldn't it be obvious that a current boyfriend is really off limits-especially to your own sister? Apparently Jamie Newman's half sister Laurel didn't get the memo. Leaving behind New York-and humiliation-Jamie heads to the tiny barrier island of Seaside Cove, North Carolina, for a quiet summer of healing her broken heart and reassessing her sudden disaster of a life. But instead of solace in a cozy beach cottage, she finds a rundown bungalow complete with stray cats and a leaky roof-and of course it's raining-and the repairman is M.I.A.... Strays and colorful neighbors are nothing compared to her next visitors. First her drama-prone mother barges in. Then her angst ridden teenage niece arrives. And the grand finale of the crazy storm is the arrival of Laurel, who's been dumped by Jaime's ex. And of course there's the repairman, who's finally shown his face-and is way too attractive for Jamie's own good. It's clear there's more to him than meets the eye, and Jaime would like to know what, but the family she tried to escape now crammed in her ramshackle cottage, she may never get the chance...

The ladies in London are abuzz over Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, especially Miss Sarah Moorehouse. Her imagination is fired up, so when she spies Matthew Devenport, Marquess Langston, mysteriously sneaking home in the wee hours clutching a shovel, she simply must investigate. Impelled by curiosity, the adventurous lass steals into his bedchamber—only to be caught red-handed by the impossibly handsome and totally naked nobleman.

But Matthew's grand plan to rescue the family from ruin could be lost when he discovers Sarah hiding behind his bedroom curtain. What is this meddlesome woman up to? And why are his desires inflamed by a chit who is too inquisitive for her own good? Well, two can play at this game . . . and when Matthew captures the beguiling Sarah in all her naked glory, the night of mischief has only just begun.

Since she’s only willing to marry for love, and not money, Emily pens a story she hopes will bring her fortune—only to have it rejected by every major publisher. After all, what respectable reader would dare embrace a vampire heroine?
