Bite Club

Dateline: 30,000 feet over the Midwest

Buongiorno, Bellas! I'm writing to you while wingin' Eastward through the clouds. Gauche it may be, but I couldn't help but share with you my first experience with in-flight WIFI! How wicked cool is this?

So, Male Perspective Guy's hangin' next to me reading -- you guessed it -- "The Lost Symbol." He's looking decidedly uneasy and I don't blame him. I mean, I filled him in on all yesterday's "Moon Kissed"* heaving, panting, sweating talk about weres and, well, I may have leaned a little heavy on the whole lycan-claiming-his-woman thing. Can you believe MPG refused my invitation to join the Mile High (Mating Bite) Club?

Ah, well. So I'm just going to entertain myself by starting Georgette Heyer's "The Foundling," and making notes for a meeting I'm heading to to talk RBTB with some "creative types." Wanna help me prep, please?

What would you like to see more of at RBTB? What new things? What could you do without? What do you like about RBTB?

What is it with Georgette Heyer all of a sudden? Everywhere I go, people are talking about her books! I've read all of her mysteries but still haven't read her historicals. (Remember? I didn't think I liked them.) I've just been piling up some of those, but I haven't had time to read them yet. I'll have to see if I can find a copy of THE FOUNDLING now, too!

I know I'm a contributing editor and all, (one would hope I know this) but, I love our indepth discussions that start out about a specific romance or a specific trend in romance and then we move on to saving the world...

Of course, I love the reviews and was verra happy to have the AuthorView back -- love that.

Love guest bloggers/authors.

But the main thing is you Michelle, yeahyeah, I am so not brown-nosing, because, I don't need to. You are RBTB.

Hey, Michelle! Hi, Bellas! Sorry I've been away. Been sick and all that stuff but finally feeling better and/or not knocked out by Vykatin, hehe.
What I love about RBTB is the community of welcoming people who not only read romances, but are smart about it. They go out of their way to talk and have fun about our fave topics such as romance, sex, hot, wet mens, and so forth, hehe.
Also, we have a great hostess, our very own QB, who brings us fresh stuff in a fun, quirky and sometimes irreverant way, that's intelligent and often makes us think, as well. Gotta love it!
As to what more...what more could we ask for?

LisaK said...

Buonasera, Bellas (at least it's sera here)!

Hm, what I love about RBTB? You, my dearest Michelle! No, really, you and your group are just about as fantastic as one can get. I love that you feel amongst friends when you come here.

I love to have more characters from books visit here. You know, like that superhawt, funny day we had with Jo Davis's Zackboy (*g*) here. I've seldomly laughed so hard and drooled so much while commenting and reading and commenting again! ;)

Sorry MPG is feeling unwell. But I mean, isn't that logical after you told the whole world that he's a werewolf? I think he would have liked to keep that a secret... ;)
No, seriously, men have fantasies about horny, always-wanting-to-have-sex (well, I guess that's about the same), blond vamps with big boobs, so why shoudn't women indulge in a little passionate-mating-bite fantasy? It's only fair! :)

LisaK said...

My oh my, of course it's "I would love to have more..." and "Zackyboy" - "Zackboy", how does that sound? *shakinghead*

amy kennedy said...

Princess! There you are. Hope you're feeling 100% soon.

Oh, yeah, Lisa -- I like the character visits as well.

Now I want to go to the library and get more Georgette Heyer. I've only read one of her books--Sylvester(?)--and I LOVED it.

I'm new to your site and loving it, so no suggestions from me!

Mr. Darcy? I'm in. I even loved the latest Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I couldn't stop laughing!

Off to check that site out!

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Buona Sera, Bellas! Just got back from a delish Italian dinner and thought I'd check in. Note to Amy: You're already hired.

Jill, I'd love to hear what you thought of the new, improved Mr Darcy. We love having you here, btw.

Principessa, yoiu must have been totally under the weather to have gotten the big drugs! shesh, I hope you're doing better. I'm glad you enjoy it here. We do need us some more wet mens. I've slacked, haven't I?

You're totally right, LisaK, it is only fair. I think that's part of the cool thing about romance and hanging out places like this: we get our fantasies, too. I'm glad you liked when the FS5 guys showed up. I'll absolutely see about getting some more heroes from other books to stop by...

Becke, I didn't know Heyer ev en wrote mysteries till I looked at her entire backlist. wowza, between her romance and mysteries and historical fic tion, really prolific. I used to think I didn 't like paranormal and, well, you see what hap[pened there. We're just glad you're on the historical side opf the street now. :)

debbie haupt said...

Wow, what a multitasker you are Michelle.
I love the cover but it will have to go on my pile because right now I'm in the same boat with MPG, I picked up The Lost Symbol last night on my way home from work and started reading it at stop signs etc. and haven't put it down yet.
Um and maybe you might mention to MPG that it's a PRIVILEGE to be mate bit, it shows the world that you are proud to show your selection, it's kind of like a Lycan wedding ring ;-)
Enjoy the food, the sights and the well mating.

Moon Kissed win...Thank you I sent an email with my address

Vanessa Kelly said...

Becke, you must read GH historicals! I cut my teeth on them. My favs are The Grand Sophy, Arabella, and Regency Buck. She also has a really good Regency rom suspense called My Cousin Kate.

Michelle, I love the friendly, welcoming atmosphere here, combined with commentary on the pub business, and the great reviews.

Jill Kemerer said...

Oh Michelle, the fact that dear Mr. Darcy was impressed--and dare I say, a little turned on?--by Elizabeth's zombie slaying brought delicious smiles for days!
