Last year, we celebrated our first-ever annual Bookstore Romance Day. Unfortunately, we are unable to gather in person to celebrate love & romance readers this year. Instead, we hope you can join us for a romance-centric conversation on Zoom! Our featured guests this year are four local romance writers: Martha Waters (To Have and to Hoax), Reese Ryan (A Reunion of Rivals), Karen Booth (Forbidden Lust), and Samantha Chase (Test Drive).


Martha Waters was born and raised in sunny South Florida, and is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She works as a children’s librarian in North Carolina, and spends much of her free time traveling. To Have and To Hoax is her first novel.

Reese Ryan writes red hot romance with captivating family drama, surprising secrets, and a posse of deliciously-flawed characters. Past president of the Heart of Carolina Romance Writers, a panelist at the 2017 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books and recipient of the 2018 Donna Hill Breakout Author Award, Reese is an advocate for the romance genre and diversity in fiction. A Midwesterner with deep Southern roots, Reese currently resides in semi-small-town North Carolina where she's an avid reader, a music junkie, and a self-declared connoisseur of cheesy grits.

Karen Booth is a Midwestern girl transplanted in the South, raised on '80s music and repeated readings of Forever by Judy Blume. A married mom of two college-age kids, she is the author of more than 25 steamy contemporary romances, and has been a finalist for RT Magazine's Series Romance of the Year, RT Magazine's Gold Seal of Excellence, The Booksellers Best Award, and the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award. Her books have been translated into seventeen languages.

Samantha Chase is a New York Times and USA Today bestseller of contemporary romance that's hotter than sweet, sweeter than hot. She released her debut novel in 2011 and currently has more than sixty titles under her belt - including The Christmas Cottage which was a Hallmark Christmas movie in 2017! When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading romances, playing way too many games of Solitaire on Facebook, wearing a tiara while playing with her sassy pug Maylene...oh, and spending time with her husband of 28 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
