Dahlia Adler. We all know her. We all love her. And most importantly, everyone who’s read her books will agree: we love those best of all! She is a much lauded blogger at B&N Teen Book Blog as well as the opening act of this year’s Queer Romance Month. She is the author of recently released, Just Visiting, a story of two friends who “struggle to learn who they are and what they want in the present [and] discover just how much they don’t know about each other’s pasts.” She is sweet and irreverent and has a razor sharp wit. I, for one, have been dying to learn more about her!
For November’s edition of Authors Interviewing Authors, I decided to do just that and fellow YA author, Marieke Nijkamp, so graciously volunteered to interview Dahlia. So without further introduction, here’s Marieke Nijkamp interviewing Dahlia Adler about life, love, and her latest release, Just Visiting.

Why you need this novella: the paranormal and the mundane life of cohabitation mingle in this super sexy new Psycop short. Hot dudes, kinky shenanigans, and…cleaning gutters? Clearly you need this!
Hear that? That’s the very loud, very excited sound of cheering for today’s release of Rebecca Grace Allen’s super sexy BDSM book, His Contract! Woohoo! Confetti throw! It’s here! Yessss. And what could make today even better? Well, Rebecca has given Binge on Books an exclusive excerpt for the release and it’s hotter than hot (And by that I mean it’s INCENDIARY so watch out)!
Now, if you don’t know anything about His Contract a) where have you been?! b) let’s change that stat! Here’s the blurb (and honestly, get ready to fan yourself by the end):
Lawyers know when to play by the rules…and when to break them. Harvard law professor Jack Archer once balanced his professional life with the private world of dominance, surrender, and trust he shared with his wife. Since cancer stole her a year ago, finding love again—her final wish for him—is the furthest thing from his mind. From his empty house to the classroom, grief follows his every move.Until he meets a young woman with shadows in her eyes even darker than his own.
Once a shining star at law school, Lilly Sterling’s dreams died when the Dom she trusted left her heartbroken and lost. She’s starting fresh in a new city as a paralegal, but meeting Jack reawakens all her old demons—and her lingering desires. Jack offers to become Lilly’s mentor for both the courtroom and the playroom, but tells himself it’s not a relationship. Their carefully worded contract guarantees that. But when their trial agreement starts heating up, both Jack and Lilly must decide what will tip the scales: the letter of the law…or love?
Warning: All rise for a book that contains a wounded submissive and a Dominant who wants to retrain her while retaining control of his heart. Discovery phase may involve spankings, bondage, edging, and blindfolds. Is it hot?
You be the judge.
Release Day Extravaganza Organized by: Liz
I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this anthology a few weeks back, and after I finished it, I felt like I was in a bit of a daze and also floating on the happiest bubble into a rainbow. This collection of stories, the proceeds from which are all going to benefit The Trevor Project, felt almost monumental to me. Some stories are bigger in scope than others, but all are so human and touching and every single one of them is affirming in a way I wish I could have had when I was in high school.
So, we thought about how best to showcase this wonderful anthology, and decided that hey, a giveaway is a beautiful thing. A TRIPLE giveaway? Even better. All money goes to charity? Sound the trumpets!
It’s time for an Extravaganza!
Ever wonder what happens when Roan Parrish, J.R. Gray, Santino Hassell, J.C. Lillis, and Kris Ripper have a late night chat on Twitter? Probably some absurd banter, right? Full of jokes and funny anecdotes? Yes! But no one would ever expect that out of something so mundane a book would be born. “What, Judith?” you’re thinking. “A book? That’s a head scratcher. How in the…I mean, how does something like that even happen?” I KNOW!
As bizarre and unlikely as it seems, these authors jumped from Twitter to a prompt to a full fledged book. From out of a conversation about the creepy old world charm of New Orleans and graveyard tours, the idea for a Halloween anthology sprang into existence, taking on a force of its own that nobody could stop. The result is Lead Me Into Darkness: Five Halloween Tales of Paranormal Romance, a FREE read full of romance, spooky happenings, kinksters, and oh yes, cemetery tours… Read More
Hello, all! What’s that? Today the incomparable KJ Charles has a new release? YES! The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh, a sizzling short in her Society of Gentlemen series, is out and if you love historicals, it is sure to wow you just like it did author, Roan Parrish. When I mentioned to Roan a) how excited I was for more of the Society books and b) how much I wanted to get KJ on Binge on Books, Roan more than graciously offered to sit down with her to discuss the new release, writing as a whole, and some very personal things like a certain treadmill writing desk that is the envy of the writing community (namely me!). So in our October installment of Authors Interviewing Authors, here’s Roan Parrish discussing it all with KJ Charles…
There are two utterly amazing things you should be excited about today:
1. Stygian by Santino Hassell releases Monday, October 26th! Only 4 days until a true Southern Gothic Paranormal Romance is front and center and waiting to be read…by you! Woot, woot! “Wait,” you’re thinking. “Southern Gothic? Paranormal? Just what is Stygian about??” Well, here you have it:
Jeremy has been isolated and adrift since the death of his brother. Most people just see him as the skinny emo kid who wears eyeliner and plays drums. No one gets him. Nobody tries. He thought the indie rock band Stygian would become his anchor, but—lost in their own problems—they’re far from the family he sought.
Still, hoping to get close to Kennedy, the band’s enigmatic guitarist, he follows Stygian to northern Louisiana for a summer retreat. They had planned to spend six weeks focusing on new music, but things go awry as soon as they arrive at the long-deserted Caroway mansion. Tempers flare, sexual tension boils over into frustration, and Jeremy turns away from the band to find a friend in his eerily beautiful landlord Hunter Caroway.
Kennedy suspects there’s something off about the creepy mansion and its mysterious owners, but Jeremy thinks he’s finally found somewhere he fits. It isn’t until Kennedy forces the Caroways’ secrets into the light that Jeremy realizes belonging sometimes comes with a price.
Rockers behaving badly? Paranormal activity? Creepy neighbors? There’s definitely not enough books like this in my life. Sign me up!
2. Now Santino wants to whet your appetites for this delicious paranormal read and has given Binge on Books an exclusive prequel to Stygian. A Night in the Life will rock your world with a little behind the scenes action from the band so let’s have at it!
