Review

"This book is 100 pages of awesome. A must for any romance writer's collection!"--Tessa Dare, NYT and USA Today Bestselling author


"While other writing books focus on external conflict, Romancing the Beat really brings the whole romantic picture together for romance authors. I'll never write another romance novel without my highlighted copy of Romancing the Beat on my desk."--Celia Kyle, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author
