First, we’ll hear two romantic excerpts from the Renaissance Festival Tales anthology. Both take place at modern Renaissance Faires, but that’s where the similarities end.   Kim Vandervort wrote "Faire Aria" at a writers’ retreat in Stinson Beach, California, in the company of fellow Broad, Julia Dvorin…and a pomegranate martini. Kim is the author of two fantasy novels, The Song and the Sorceress and The Northern Queen, as well as a smattering of short fiction. Her book Outcast is due out in July.

 

Julia Dvorin wrote her novella, Cupid For A Day, after asking herself the question, "What if Cupid were real and worked at the archery booth at the Renaissance Faire?"

 

Diane Whiteside’s story, “Vanished,” is from The Fiction Studio's April 2012 A Cast of Characters anthology. In this scene, Cindy and Richard learn just how much one dance truly means to each other.

 

Our next author, Jaleta Clegg, likes to mess with words. She doesn't consider herself a romance writer, but it keeps creeping into her stories. Like this one. It's in a horror anthology, not where you'd expect to find a sweet romance.

 

And we end with KT Pinto, who adores traveling back in time through her research and then changing history through her writing. She hopes to change the present with her writing as well, and it seems like she's on her way to succeeding.

So grab your sweetie—or at least a box of chocolates—and settle in to hear from five Broads who know how to make their stories sizzle!
