Ecstasy in Edmonton
Randi del Marco

Hollywood Romance(TM)
Second in the Pepper On Location series

The time is just after Christmas and it is cold, very cold when Pepper, producer’s assistant extraordinaire, arrives in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada -- home of the world’s largest indoor mall. And with all that cold weather outside, the huge mall is a necessity if Pepper doesn't want to freeze to death on the set.

But there are other ways to keep warm.

While her boss Dustin, a tough-as-nails producer, fights to keep the show on schedule and under budget despite a neophyte director and an antagonistic writer, Pepper takes advantage of a new city to connect with the men it has to offer.

But does she end up with Jerry the writer or Peter the Ukranian PA with a PhD? When Pepper does hook up, you can be sure there is sizzle ... for snow and ice can fuel desire and fire up eroticism -- for Pepper and for you, the reader too, as you vicariously experience Pepper's pleasures through the pages of Ecstasy in Edmonton.

Electric Vibrato -- A Ferguson Films Fantasy
Erica Leigh Madson

Hollywood Romance(TM)
ISBN: 978-1-880413-62-3

In this sequel to Electric Vibes, Sophie and Jerry have fallen in love and in lust. Head over heels and starry-eyed, they dream of a future together as they explore each other’s bodies. From “parking” on Mulholland Drive to an idyllic sailboat ride on Santa Monica Bay to a romantic weekend in San Francisco, love is wonderful. But then real life gets in the way.

Inconvenient roommates, Jerry's schedule as a film electrician, Sophie's schoolwork, shadows from both their pasts, and unforeseen situations all create complications. Jerry plans to introduce Sophie to his family at Thanksgiving but Sophie’s mother shows up unexpectedly.

At Christmas, Sophie finally meets the Ferguson family and finds that Jerry has a wonderful and eccentric collection of relatives, all immersed in one aspect or other of the film business. The business that runs Hollywood.

But Sophie’s mother faces a crisis herself and it looks like her need for her daughter will force Jerry out of Sophie’s life for good. But friends and family come forward to help defuse the drama and allow love to find its own way through the obstacles of ordinary (and not so ordinary) life.

Sophie and Jerry are very different in so many ways. But nothing can dim that electric charge that keeps building and building and pulling them back together.

Electric Vibrato was given 4 Hearts from The Romance Studio!

Journey To Diir by Lynn Sterling
Review by Marcy Arbitman ~ The Romance Studio --- Awarded 4 hearts!!

In 2655, Cole, Nick and Tremaine are flying a freighter (Camelot) looking for ore with the assistance of their Computer Control Unit, named Mordred. Mordred notifies Cole of a large Earthen vessel and they eagerly investigate. Six hundred years earlier, Earth had sent sleeper pods into space, each containing humans who were dying and able and willing to pay the huge cost of maintaining their bodies until cures could be found for the illnesses. Andrea Stone is discovered on the ship. She was a movie company financial assistant until she is discovered with heart disease and her loving husband buys her a sleeper pod. Technical problems destroyed the pods over the centuries (it was thought) and the men of the Camelot were astounded to find the remains of a woman...who was still alive. Andrea was brought on board and the Journey To Diir begins.

Journey To Diir (pronounced Die-ear) was the beginning novel of a futuristic romantic trilogy. A very long book, the characters are extremely well-written and the plot laid out to continue through the next two books. There was a great deal of romance and sex that was not overly graphic. Andrea was the character around who the entire story revolves. Mordred was just a huge amount of fun, a primary character in this book. Secondary characters were brought into the plot as needed and they were equally well described and important to the plot. The premise was fascinating and I thought that Ms. Sterling handled her plot with deft hands. Her imagination gave the ideas of this new world a fresh and interesting touch. My only problem with Journey To Diir were technical flaws that took me away from the story on occasion. I loved the characters and lost myself in their lives as I was reading. I am eagerly awaiting the next book, Diir Evolution. Go get Journey To Diir, you will love it!

Jada Nichols - September 2007
Interview with Enchanting Reviews

Why did you decide to become an Author?

I actually didn't "decide" to . . . it just sorta happened. It's about these journals I've been keeping since the day I was hatched . . . and since I was lucky enough to get a job as a producer's assistant just after I moved to Hollywood a friend heard about Rosa Romance and thought it would be funny if they published my insane life. I changed the names to protect the guilty and here I am, an author!

How long have you been writing?
My entire life.

What was your first book?
You mean, real published book? Jada's Journal ~ sex, scandals and superstars. That's only part one, there will be more Jada's Journals . . . all with sub-titles to tell them apart.

How do you come up with your characters? Favorite Character(s) to write about?
It's just my life so I didn't really "come up" with anyone . . . they "put up" with me!

Do you have a set schedule when you write or do you write when you are feeling creative?
I write my journals every day, catch as catch can. I put it in book format when my paying job allows, which lately hasn't been much as we are shooting. Which is why the book's not out yet. Mea culpa!
