Diane Alberts | Breaking the Stereotypes
December 16, 2014
Hello! Iâ€™m Diane Alberts, but I also write as Jen McLaughlin! I am here today
because I just released a new book in my Shillings Agency series with
Entangled Brazen! Itâ€™s called SEDUCING THE PRINCESS, and
itâ€™s the third book in the series! The first two are TEMPORARILY YOURS and STEALING HIS HEART.
In SEDUCING THE
PRINCESS, I play with the royal tropeâ€¦but instead of the usual prince
sweeping a normal girl off her feet, I did the opposite. This time, itâ€™s the
princess who woos a commonerâ€¦in this case, American bodyguard Gordon Waybrook.
One thing I like to do in the Shillings Agency books is break
stereotypes. I donâ€™t do damsels in distress or weak women. I like to write women
who can, and DO, stand on their own. If thereâ€™s one thing you can count on with
my Shillings Agency books, itâ€™s this:
The hero will talk dirty, the heroine will be independent, and there will be a
battle of wills.
I was curious to know things that you like to see most in a book, or, on the
other hand, things you DONâ€™T like to see in books. Tell me below in the comments!

or STEALING HIS HEART

I like humor, and unlike you apparently, am not particularly fond of dirty talking heroes. Definitely have to have independent heroines though.

I like happy endings. As for don't like, perhaps death of a good character.

This sounds so good! Can't wait to read! I looove a bad-boy
with a "secretly" good heart. Dirty talking sexy hero's are

Merry Christmas & Seasons Greetings to one and all. I enjoy reading about women and men with backbones. I don't like reading books where you don't know who in the world the author is talking about and when they use "He" or "She" too much. Who is "He?" Is he the main character or the butler that you just talked about a few sentences ago?

I like strong characters and happily ever afters. I also like
it when a book is part of a series and the reader gets to
catch up with couples from previous books and see how they are

I like strong heroes who are not afraid to say I love you or I'm sorry, a good love story with a happy ending.
