In the Mood by Ellen Fisher

Jude Patterson is a sexy but shy romance novelist who discovers the flowery language he's always used in historical love scenes doesn't translate well to contemporary romances. Alyssa Stone is a beautiful fan who offers to help him learn to write better love scenes.

Jude is fascinated by Alyssa, whose confident and sensual demeanor conceals a very vulnerable interior. Before long, he's the one showing her how to write love scenes... and maybe even how to write happy endings.
In the Mood is available for your Kindle for only 99 cents.
  About Ellen Fisher: (visit her online)
I'm an author of romance who writes, or tries to, around plenty of distractions. I have four kids ranging from five to fourteen, and two young and energetic Australian shepherds (see the above photo) named Big Blue Hero and Electric Blue Impulse.

I've been writing since fourth grade, and produced my first romance (which thankfully was never published) in college, when I should have been writing term papers instead of fiction. My first book (a colonial Virginia romance entitled The Light in the Darkness) was published by Bantam in 1998. A few years later, I started writing ebooks. Overall, I've published thirteen novels and novellas, ranging from historicals to sci-fi romance to contemporaries.

In late 2006, my husband (affectionately known as Vulcan Husband) was diagnosed with lung cancer, and passed away a scant four months later, having barely survived to his fortieth birthday. Not long after that, I developed Crohn's disease, and suffered with its symptoms for most of a year before it was diagnosed. I went on sabbatical for a while and lost my literary agent in the process. I also spent much of a year finding a house closer to our extended family and moving (and packing up a house when you've lived in it for twelve years is not a short process!). All this had an adverse effect on my writing, so I quit writing professionally for quite a while.

But the itch to write never goes away. So, after a break of several years... I'm back.
