Heart’s Kiss is a bi-monthly (every two months) magazine celebrating romance of all levels of diversity, in all of its sub-genres. The magazine is published by Heart’s Nest Press, the romance imprint of Arc Manor Publishers.

Each issue contains new and reprint stories, articles, book reviews and an interview with a prominent personality in the industry.

The magazine is edited by Lezli Robyn and Tina Smith.


Lezli Robyn is an Australian multi-genre author and Assistant Publisher of Arc Manor, living in the US with her mini-Dachshund/Chihuahua, Bindi. Her love of books led to her meeting her future collaborator, Mike Resnick, on eBay. Since that serendipitous event Lezli has sold to prestigious markets around the world and is in the process of finishing too more small press books while writing her first two novels. Known for her bittersweet and heart-tugging writing technique, she has been a finalist for several prestigious awards, including the 2010 Campbell Award for Best New Writer. In 2011 and 2014 she also won the Catalan Premi Ictineu Award for Best Translated Story.


Tina Smith has lived in the rural communities and towns of northern California and the busy city of London, England. Tina writes contemporary romance as Alice Faris and paranormal with romantic elements as Tina Gower. She has won the Daphne du Maurier, Writers of the Future, and been nominated for the RWA Golden Heart. She has raised guide dogs for the blind and worked as a school psychologist and counselor for students with a variety of disabilities. She is delighted to be co-editing Heart’s Kiss—a new romance fiction magazine. Tina is represented by Rebecca Strauss at DeFiore and Company.
