For the next installment in the series about my favorite authors, I thought I’d write about some of my favorite Romance writers.
These three authors all have specialties, ranging from novels set in Australia to books about spies. They’re not unlike Ocean’s Eleven, each with an expertise in something unique. I picture them dressed in black with Batman-style utility belts, prepared for anything.
Her expression shut faster than a poked clam. “I’ll just get a cardigan.”
He might not be a hellraiser anymore but Devin valued his reputation. “Haven’t you got anything sexy?”
“Yes,” said Rachel, “my mind.”
I own every single Karina Bliss book. I have shelled out for them all. As I’ve mentioned before, I will continue to do so until one of us dies—this commitment is that serious. That pretty much sums it up.
Bliss specializes in contemporary category romance set in her native New Zealand and Australia. Her books are consistently engaging and- dare I say it- heartwarming. I’ve already mentioned Bring Him Home and What the Librarian Did (here and here) but next up would probably be Mr. Unforgettable. The plot centers around Liz, the mayor of a small beach community, and Luke, a retired Olympic swimmer. Liz is slowly recovering from the death of her late husband, trying to redefine her identity. She’s thrown into contact with Luke in his attempt to found a camp for underprivileged kids. Their journeys from difficult childhoods to happiness become inextricably intertwined.
Note: those of you who understandably dislike Alpha Male Syndrome™ should probably avoid Like Father, Like Son.
