Megan Hart Q&A and Giveaway: Romance Awareness Month



Just a few weeks ago, I was happily surprised to find that August is Romance Awareness Month! I can’t find an origin, but it’s a real thing, and I’m ALL FOR IT!

To celebrate, I sent an *all call* to some of my favorite romance authors, asking each of them the same questions about romance (their own, their favorites, and their characters). All month long we’ll be sharing the authors’ answers, and EVERY ONE OF THEM is offering a giveaway!

Today we get to chat a bit with the author of both contemporary and speculative fiction romances, Megan Hart.

We also get to help Megan show off the cool new cover the upcoming rerelease of PASSION MODEL (available on the 13th!).



For Recreational Intercourse Operative Gemma, patrolling Newcity’s Lovehuts and Pleasurebots isn’t much of a pleasure. But it’s work she clings to after an accident destroyed her marriage and left her with half her body made of replacement parts. She keeps her head down and her mind on her job, waiting for the proverbial hammer to fall. The head of the ruling council is out to make those like her illegal. If anyone finds out she’s mecho, she’s toast.
A routine inspection of a Pleasurebot turns into a strictly forbidden—and mind-blowing—sexual encounter. Then she realizes it isn’t an “it” at all. He’s human, and despite the sweet-hot climaxes he gives her, she buries her report to save them both from the consequences.
Except he can’t seem to stay away from her, and for a time life seems almost…normal. Until Gemma uncovers Declan’s own deep, dark secret. A secret that could get her fired from R.I.O. Or both of them killed.


What is your simple definition of “romance”?

HEA. Without a happy ever after (or even happy for now) to me, it’s not a romance.

What is the most romantic thing someone’s done for you?

Covered my bedroom ceiling with glow in the dark stars while I was away, without telling me he was going to do it. I didn’t know until I went to bed and turned out the lights.

Do you have any “romance mishaps” you can share?

Only the usual — gave someone who didn’t deserve it too many chances. That sort of thing.

If your own romance was a novel, the title would be…

Finally Got It Right

What is the most romantic thing one of your characters has done for their love interest? 

Listened to her, heard her, and made whatever she wanted to happen, happen.

Do you have a favorite romance trope? (Either to read, or write.) If so, which one?

Femdom (I doubt this is a trope because it’s not as popular as the other way around, but I love it!) Also second chance at love, forced proximity and older woman/younger man.

Who is your favorite (aside from one of your own) fictional romantic couple?

I have to go with Lizzie and Mr. Darcy.
