What to Expect: An exciting mystery, a sweet romance, and all the Victorian taxidermy you could ever ask for!
On 12/1, my small press, Open Ink, put out an unusual collection of horror and romance featuring the talents of KJ Charles, Roan Parrish, J.A. Rock, Steve Berman, Avon Gale, and Kris Ripper. To celebrate the release, and to give you a taste of what you can expect from each of these terrifying tales, here they all are with the most horrifying scenes from their stories. Read More
It’s beginning to look a lot like…well, any old day? From the dearth of holiday preparations here at Binge on Books you would never guess that the holidays are right around the corner. Every year I hope to spruce the place up a bit with some fun holiday photos of a gorgeous something or other I popped out of the oven but that will never, ever happen. There’s a very important reason for this: you see…well…the long and short of it is, I am a rather impatient and diffident baker (which is probably why I prefer reading to cooking). While most everyone I know is home baking something warm and fragrant, I’m huddled next to the Christmas tree with my kindle praying for some kindly soul to take pity on me and shower my home with baked goods. Someone usually does but it requires quite a lot of coaxing and quite a lot of smiling and far more energy than I can muster on a good day. This year, however, no cajoling was required; the baked goods came to me. I seem to have been extra specially good because Elisabeth Lane of Cooking up Romance gifted me with cookies! Eight mouthwatering holiday cookies to be exact. When I saw them, I gasped. If you don’t know Elisabeth and her gorgeous blog, do take a moment to peruse her site. She reads books and then creates recipes complete with lovely photos of foods inspired from them.
Whatever the reason, today we have 8 cookies for you to drool over. And what’s even better? The whole Binge on Books team has jumped on this post to pair these glorious cookies with 8 of our favorite reads. It’s an epic Cookie-Book Pairing you will not want to miss (think Meals and Wine…only BETTER cause, well, there’s books!). Here’s a hint of what’s to come:
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…
Charmed and Dangerous Anthology, edited by Jordan C Price; featuring stories by: Rhys Ford – Dim Sum Asylum; Ginn Hale – Swift and the Black Dog; KJ Charles – A Queer Trade; Nicole Kimberling – Magically Delicious; Jordan Castillo Price – Everyone’s Afraid of Clowns; Jordan L.

It’s a week of some BIG firsts here on Binge on Books. First we had Santino Hassell chatting up Jordan C Price in a frank author-to-author Q&A to celebrate the release of the highly lauded magical anthology, Charmed and Dangerous. And now, we have our first ever group review: it’s me, Santino Hassell (who just can’t seem to leave Jordan C Price alone), and a new guest contributor, Anna Hullum.
We’re going to do this review as a set of question and answer prompts to really see what three different reviewers thought of such a unique and diverse anthology. So let’s have at it!
Hello all you lucky readers! Today there’s two MAJOR reasons to be excited here on Binge on Books:
1. Charmed and Dangerous, the hotly anticipated, new urban fantasy anthology we mentioned a few weeks ago is finally HERE! Woot woot! It is edited by Jordan C Price and features work from the current masters of the genre: Jordan C Price, Ginn Hale, Rhys Ford, KJ Charles, Nicole Kimberling, Jordan L Hawk, Charlie Cochet, Lou Harper, Andrea Speed, and Astrid Amara. Anything this full of amazing writing is sure to blow your mind (and believe me, it will. We’ve read it and it is, in a word, oustanding).
2. Santino Hassell is here today with a treat for you and me. What’s that? Oh right, he’s chatting up the queen of urban fantasy herself, Jordan C Price! It’s two big voices in M/M discussing the Charmed and Dangerous anthology, personal favorites in books, characters, authors, upcoming projects, and so much more in a frank Q&A. So without further ado, let’s get to it.

Fun trip to the Department of Backstory: I came into reading romance very recently through a desire to read historical LGBTQ romance. Essentially, what I was yearning for was a Regency of the swoony Jane Austen variety, only gay. I found quite a few amazing and satisfying reads, but this book in particular is what my Regency-loving heart has been yearning for and this book is what it so gratefully received!
