‘First kiss’ the theme at romance authors book signing

(MILFORD, NH.) There’s nothing more romantic than a first kiss – and four romance authors plan to prove that when they join forces Feb. 13 to read their “first kiss” scenes and talk about writing romance at Toadstool Bookstore in Milford, N.H.

By reading excerpts from their latest novels, the authors will give readers a sample of romantic scenes from four different genres, including historical, contemporary, romantic mystery and techno-romantic thrillers.

Salem resident Denise Robbins, the author of three techno-romantic thrillers, says the event provides a great opportunity to learn about what goes into writing romance novels and to purchase a personal and romantic gift for Valentine’s Day. “Valentine's Day is considered the most romantic day of the year," she said. "What could be more heartfelt than giving a signed copy of a book?”

A software engineering manager, Robbins successfully combines her knowledge of computers and technology with the world of crime and clandestine activities in all her novels. Her last release, Killer Bunny Hill, gave readers a glimpse into the breakthrough science of nanotechnology, while Connect the Dots, her newest novel, delves into the secret world of the CIA. By blending romantic elements into heart-pounding plots, she keeps readers turning the pages.

In fact, Robbins has inadvertently made headlines with her latest techno-thriller. A failed Christmas Day attack on a Detroit-bound Northwest flight led President Obama to proclaim his administration had failed to “connect the dots,” a phrase that has since taken on a life of its own and made the title of her book, Connect the Dots, the topic of the daily news.

The “First Kiss” event and book signing will take place at the Toadstool Bookshop, located at Lorden Plaza in Milford, NH from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 13.

Now ya see, I'd have a heck of a time reading in front of a bunch of people. I'm no good at any kind of public speaking. *shudder*
