Re: Bride of a Distant Isle (12:54pm March 29, 2016):
I love the creepy factor combined with the romance. It just
amps everything up.
Re: To Mate an Assassin (7:30pm July 31, 2015):
I tend to be inspired by history, mythology, and fairy tales. Combine that with the things I'm interested in real life, and I've got several stories started! Now to finish one (eventually, ha).
Re: The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (7:28pm July 31, 2015):
Honestly, my fiction would either be a fun kid's book all about my cats (the adorable wee devils), or a modern contemporary about my sad attempts at dating!
Now don't I sound like a cliche? Thanks for the chance!
Re: Shadow Fires (11:33am June 13, 2015):
Erm... Adult-ish content warning for this comment?
One of my favorite novels (which is absolutely NOT for the younger set) involves a woman who's a kidnapper and a sex trafficker, and a an honorable young man who plays football and studies religion (Christian emphasis). She kidnaps him, dominates him, and does this while informing him it's all for his future "master."
Doesn't sound like they could have a happily ever after together, does it? But they do, and it's exceptional.
It's a delightful *dark* romance, and I enjoy it immensely. ("Deliver" by Pam Godwin, if you're curious.)
Re: Reunion of Souls (9:57am June 8, 2015):
I've read both, fiction and non-fiction, and I must admit a preference to fiction there. Most of the time I leave a non-fiction account unsatisfied. That's also probably why I tend to stick with reading romance/erotica - the almost guaranteed Happily Ever Afters.
I do like my happy endings.
Re: 50 Ways to Ruin a Rake (9:53am June 8, 2015):
I usually give myself permission to be bad at exercise. I'm not the biggest, and I'm not the strongest, but I figure, as long as I try, that's better than nothing.
I may not be able to exercise as well as I'd like, but doing some is better than doing none. You know?
Re: At the Spy's Pleasure (3:39am May 31, 2015):
Second chances are available every day, and not just when it comes to love.
Although it is an enjoyable theme in romance novels. When done right and done well, a second-chance novel could very well become one of my favorites. (I won't cite examples, because I don't want to detract from the author here!)
Re: The Perilous Journey of the Not-So-Innocuous Girl (10:53am March 20, 2015):
I hate dresses as is, so aviation trousers sound like just the thing for me. Dress me up spiffy in a nice suit for fancy times, and leave the dresses to the wilting lilies who don't go on adventures!
Re: Siren's Call (10:48am March 20, 2015):
What I like of mermaid stories tends to be along the lines of blurring boundaries and coming together despite the odds. I mean, consider Ariel and her desire to be with Eric. She left her people for love. And Allen ( with Madison from "Splash" - remember that movie?). He left his people for love. It's overcoming obstacles, you know? Just how far would a body go for love? That's what we all want to figure out.
And, of course, there is that clam bra. Nobody can rock a clam quite like a mermaid can.
Re: Pleasure Me (9:05pm January 14, 2011):
I'd have to say that good characterization and humor are my favorite parts of a romance. If the two (likable) characters fall in love and make me laugh all at the same time, I'm sunk. I've read romances that made me cry more than laugh, and they were well-written, but it's the laughter that takes the cake each time for me.
Re: Highland Hellcat (10:12pm October 15, 2010):
I'd have to say that French Vanilla flavored coffees are my weakness. Whether hot or iced, I'll almost always grab one when I'm having a bad day. I even keep French Vanilla coffee grounds in my cupboard for when I feel like brewing at home! My husband can't stand coffee though, not any kind, so we keep a variety of teas at home. His favorites are either Irish Breakfast Tea or Earl Grey.
Re: Runes (12:36pm October 7, 2010):
Ooh, well thank you very much for letting me know! I'll have to keep my eyes open! :D
Re: Runes (2:40am October 6, 2010):
Now this sounds like a good book! Anyway, on the the question at hand, haha, secret desires, right?
I'd have to say that I'd enjoy having two lovers, both as strong as the other but submissive to me at my will would be fantastic. The question is, men or women? Both? And androgyny is a plus!
Re: Seducing The Duchess (2:08am October 6, 2010):
That's wonderful, congratulations! I cannot imagine the thrill of seeing my own book on the shelves (though I dream of Someday, in which all my future books are, haha).
My first romances were stealthily nabbed from my mother's sock drawer where she tried to keep them hidden from my book-hungry eyes. After she caught me reading one (the third or fourth I'd nabbed, haha), she just let me keep reading what she had, and shortly I had more romances than she did!
Whether I win or not, I think I'll have to pick this book up, because it just sounds nifty. Thanks for the contest, and again, congratulations. :)
Re: When Wicked Craves (1:36am September 30, 2010):
My husband and I moved all the way across the country recently, and I'm finding that not only was I inspired by the trip, but I'm being inspired by my new city! There's so much to see and to do... Imagining great romances set in that old fashioned bar down the street, or a murder with a body dumped near an overpass. Lately I've been wanting to head down to the local mall, to sit in the food court and people watch, you know? Make up their stories. Fun!
(P.S. I'd never heard of this series before, now I'm intrigued!)
