Sept. 29, grab your copy of "Hunt Her Down  ," and hang @ Heart to Heart w/ Roxanne St. Claire, LIVE via WIFI, 7 pm EDT as she visits the West Melbourne, FL B&N Romance Reader's Circle! The members of the Circle are looking forward to your joining them in this unique and intimate digital experience.

As a special bonus, as Rocki reads it to the Reader's Circle, I'll post for you an exclusive sneak peek at the follow-up to "Hunt Her Down," "Make Her Pay  !"

Here's what'll make the H2H Online Romance Reader's Circle different from other guest blog and digi-chats:  The women of the established Romance Reader's Circle have invited you in to their club.  They - and Rocki! -- will be online with you as they're chatting among themselves, letting you know what's being said, each w/her own unique perspective in real time.  And they can feed your questions to Rocki and the other women as well.  RR Circle leader Lee Duncan is our in-store hostess.

If you haven't spent time online with Roxanne St. Claire, you'll be amazed by how her warmth, sense of humor and enjoyment of meeting readers and new friends zings out through cyberspace.  


So find yourself a copy of "Hunt Her Down," get readin', then get ready to talk hot Bullet Catcher bodyguards and one of the coolest, sexiest and most down-to-earth heroines I've seen in a while.

Stop back Friday and I'll let you know why I'm feeling so hepped 'bout this book -- and a little more about the wild n' fast-paced story!

Do you belong to a reader's group?  What do you like about it, the books, the friendship, or something else?  And tell us why you like Roxanne St. Claire's romances and romantic suspenses!

H2H Online Romance Reader's Circle

I'm so jazzed about this event!  Anyone who's spent time at an in-store or in-home book club knows how nurturing gathering within a circle of women can be.  And romance readers are expert "imaginers."  I've no doubt we'll 'feel' like we're among the group in a way we don't when we're merely communicating online in a more horizontal way, simply one-to-one.

I also think this experience may appeal to women who are uncomfortable with the 'wall-less' feel of communicating on twitter or other 'free for all' social networking mediums.

And Roxanne St. claire is always so much fun. But more than that, you're going to LOVE talking about "Hunt Her Down," which, while it sounds pretty scary, isn't.  It's actually smokin' hot -- gawd, this one scene! -- and also really edge-of-your-seat exciting.  Hmm. could i use any more cliches?  HHD deserves better.

Michelle, I am SO excited about the H2H Online Romance Readers Circle!  Go right ahead and use all the cliches you want - and, honey, I know *exactly* which scene you mean! 


We're going to have a blast on the 29th.  I will answer absolutely anything, as anyone who knows me will attest - especially my buddies in the Romance Reader's Circle.  HUNT HER DOWN has been getting some amazing buzz and killer reviews, so I'm hoping we'll have lots to talk about on the 29th.  I'll be happy to give the inside scoop on the characters, the writer's life, my next series - whatever readers want to know!


See you then!

Michelle, I'm honored and thrilled to death to have our Romance Readers' Circle go on-line with H2H.  Our little group down here in Melbourne, Florida loves romance, and we're all sooo excited about sharing our fav authors and discussing their books with folks from all over.  And we couldn't be more delighted to have the fabulous Roxanne St. Claire sit and dish with us on the 29th.  One thing about Roxanne, she always delivers, and "Hunt Her Down" is no exception.  Personally, I think it's her best ever.  I'm reading the book again right now and love, love, lovin' every twist, turn and -- oh, yeah -- love scene.

Yay! I'm so excited to go to this! I'm about halfway through Hunt Her Down and I'm loving it!

by Author MonicaBurns on ‎09-03-2009 01:44 PM

Sounds like this will be a GREAT event, Michelle! I don't think I've ever belonged to a reader's group. I've always thought of reading as a  solitary pursuit, so I never thought to go out and find other readers of books. Not to say I wouldn't be opened to joining one. *grin*

Hi, everyone!  Mon, the funny thing is, I've always avoided neighborhood 'book clubs,' cause they always read "good for you' women's fiction.  And, ok, I can talk lit w/the, wll, probably 2nd or 3rd best of 'em at least, but if I'm getting together for wine and cheese w/girlfriends on a rare night out, I want to be able to discuss 'love scenes' and HEAs.  I know you know what I'm saying.


I think you'd enjoy 'Hunt Her Down,' cause it's got everything you like. And you and I are total historical nuts, so when I say I'm crazed for this contemporary romantic suspense -- and, OK, it's BIG on the romance -- you know I ain't kidding.  I hope you'll join us cause I know you'd add so much as a writer and lover of hot stuff and good books.

Hello, Kristin!  I hope you'll be joining us for the Reader's Circle!  It's so nice to see you here. 

Lee, I can't wait to meet your Circle. I moved recently and all my close romance-reading pals live out of state now.   Maybe my local BN has a RRC?  Luckily I get to hang online w/ other chicks who dig romance. I don't know what I'd do if not.  But this will be really neat, to bring together this combination of your group's in-store energy with our digital connectivity.  Wow. That sounds way more intelligent then i usually sound.  And I'm going to do another re-read this weekend cause I loved the book so much!

by Blogger Michelle_Buonfiglio on ‎09-04-2009 11:17 AM

Roxanne, all's I can say is: sheesh.  Can't wait to hear inside dish bout the book, "Make Her Pay," whose hero I love already. (Yes, everyone here knows I don't have much time for heroines. Scusi).   And Bullet Catchers news, perhaps.  There are so many little teases in Hunt Her Down that make me just wonder what you've got in store for us...  

And, yes, those of us who enjoy your company online can, indeed, attest to the fact that you're happy to share!

I've been telling my friends about this -- what a cool idea!

by Moderator dhaupt on ‎09-28-2009 10:17 AM

Yes Roxanne, dish dish dish. Wow what a great book Hunt Her Down was.

by Blogger Michelle_Buonfiglio on ‎09-28-2009 10:29 AM

I'm looking forward to tomorrow night.  This book was so hot and suspenseful and now all my friends are reading it


by Blogger Michelle_Buonfiglio on ‎09-28-2009 10:37 AM

That little tease of Make Her Pay is kind of killing me.  I've got the exclusive excperpt from it in my paws now, but I'm waiting to read it, sort of teasing myself.  ew. did that sound wierd?
