Jeff and I talk about our upcoming trip to New York City for the Romance Writers of America national conference and reveal that we will be among the presenters at the RITA Awards ceremony on Friday, July 26.

I review the pygmalion-themed historical romance The Masterpiece by Bonnie Dee while Jeff reviews a book Bonnie co-wrote with Summer Devon called The Nobleman and the Spy (I read this one too and totally loved it).

Jeff interviews Michael Vance Gurley about his new YA steampunk novel Absolute Heart (Infernal Instruments of the Dragon #1)Michael discusses the inspiration behind the story, what he did to build the world it takes place in and what he hopes for the trilogy. He also talks about what’s coming up next for him.
