Miranda Owen


I work in a library and that helps my book addiction. My favorite genres are romance (just about any kind) and cozy mysteries. I also enjoy true crime books - especially time periods 1950 & earlier. I like anti-heroes, personal journey stories, character-driven stories, and ones with strong, smart female characters. I also enjoy graphic novels & manga. I am in several online book groups.

Re: A Crafter Hooks a Killer (11:24am July 22, 2019):

Nice collection of cozies :)

Re: The Desires of A Duke (1:50pm December 13, 2017):

Devil Cynster, Duke of St. Ives :)

Re: Undercover Attraction (4:17pm November 28, 2017):

Jennifer Ashley's Mackenzies, Mary Balogh's Westcotts,
Vivian Arend's Colemans, Stephanie Laurens' Cynsters

Re: Once Upon A Ghost (5:24pm October 10, 2017):

Sounds good!

Re: Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas (1:45pm October 6, 2017):

Love Terry Spear's werewolf books!

Re: Elliott Redeemed (12:25pm September 5, 2017):

Play by Kylie Scott & Wicked Beat by Olivia Cunning

Re: Brazilian Capture (2:12pm May 22, 2017):

My fav Almodovar film is Flower of My Secret. I liked the
adaptation from a billion years ago of the Anne of Green
Gables series. I loved the book version of The Shining
more than the film. I love just about any of the Jane
Eyre adaptations but the Fassbender version with it's
switched around format gets the mood exactly right.

Re: The Thief Steals Her Earl (2:58pm September 22, 2016):

Yes! This is what I live for - witty and intelligent
characters. Love Stephanie Laurens' heroines because they
are intelligent and look at the big picture. Love witty
dialogue like in a Celeste Bradley novel or Claudia Dain's
Courtesan Chronicles series.

Re: This Loving Feeling (1:36pm July 21, 2016):

Sounds good, and I love small town romance.

Re: Fire Danger (1:35pm July 21, 2016):

Always fascinated by banshees and Medusa. Heard of Wyvern
but never read a story with one.

Re: Torn (1:33pm July 21, 2016):

I have the Ward and Ione books but haven't had time to read
yet. In the Lara Adrian series - Tegan & Rio are my fav
heroes/books. :)

Re: Billionaire in Wolf's Clothing (4:33pm July 7, 2016):

So excited about this - love billionaires & love werewolf
books. :)

Re: Missed Connections (2:35pm June 14, 2016):

I never really understood the whole "step-brother"
romance phenomenon. I mean I guess there's no biological
connection so one level of ick is removed but....I don't
know. I read a story once by Red Garnier about a man and
woman who were not biologically related & didn't have a
"step-" connection, but the guy's family always looked at
the woman and her sister as family and tried to treat
them that way and force the future H/h to fit that mold.
They became friends in their youth and suppressed their
natural attraction that developed over time organically.
But to me, that's different.

Re: Test Drive (6:38pm June 8, 2016):

Yes to all of the above. This book is a lot of fun & I liked
Johnny's sweet/sexy mix. Really loo forward to next one.

Re: The Progeny (3:43pm June 2, 2016):

Sounds like an interesting topic.

Re: Bride of a Distant Isle (9:45pm March 25, 2016):

LOVE gothic romances. First I read was Juniper Hill by
Dorothy Daniels. :)

Re: Runaway Vampire (6:28pm February 25, 2016):

Nice interview! :)

Re: Secret Sisters (5:03pm December 8, 2015):

Great info & article :)

Re: The Secret Mistress (2:03pm July 31, 2012):

I love beta heroes as well as alpha types. One of my favorite beta heroes is Reggie from "The Pursuit of Marriage" by Victoria Alexander. He's a sweetie, good to his family, a loyal friend, and very easy going. After wearing his heart on his sleeve too many times, he invents an alpha alter-ego to try and win him love. His friends help spread stories of his supposed exploits to help him out because they want to help him since he's such a good friend and a good guy. Very funny story. My favorite beta hero.
