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.

Love.

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.

A funny, raucous, and delightfully dirty 900-year history of the royal marriages of Europe's most famous-and infamous-monarchs.

Since time immemorial, royal marriages have had little to do with love- and almost everything to do with diplomacy and dynasty. Clashing personalities have joined in unholy matrimony to form such infamous couples as Russia's Peter II and Catherine the Great, and France's Henri II and Catherine de Medici-all with the purpose of begetting a male heir. But with tensions high and silverware flying, kings like England's Henry II have fled to the beds of their nubile mistresses, while queens such as Eleanor of Aquitaine have plotted their revenge...

Full of the juicy gossip and bad behavior that characterized Royal Affairs, this book chronicles the love-hate marriages of the crowned heads of Europe-from the Angevins to Charles and Di-and ponders how dynasties ever survived at all.
