I’ve got some awesome reads for you in this blog and I can’t wait to share them with you. I’ve got a romantic comedy with a man who joins a secret all male book group dedicated to reading women’s romance novels, a steamy hot story of two ice hockey stars falling in love, and the slowest burn romance I’ve ever read between a Hollywood power player and her assistant.
I’ve got a fabulous gift basket of books by (mainly) British authors for you in this blog. Pernille Hughes takes us from her home in the UK to her birthplace of Denmark in search of great beer and the best kiss in the world, Nick Spalding takes on a quest to discover why he’s so unlucky in love, and Margaret Amatt whisks us north to the Isle of Mull for a heartfelt second chance romance.
This time I’m switching it up! Three fabulous books for your delectation, but away from my traditional path of contemporary romance. All three have romance and humour, but one follows a penniless South African girl with a prodigious brain on her adventures via a nuclear bomb to saving the King of Sweden, one follows a spinster writing about her neighbours in the 1930s, and the other is set in Regency England and features a upper class lady and a gypsy.
Have you ever read a romance novel and skipped to the, ahem, ‘good bits’? I know I have. Not only that, but I have a couple of books on my kindle that are so blisteringly hot that I often find myself re-reading these special pages. If you’re the kind of person who skips to the juicy parts of a romance novel, then I’m about to blow your minds and maybe some extra bits as well. Are you ready?
What is a book spa? I first came across this idea at a local independent bookshop ‘Mr B’s Emporium’ in Bath. They advertise ‘reading spas’ and I bought one for my mother as a birthday present. You go along, get plied with drink and cake, and discuss your favourite books with your ‘bibliotherapist’. They then hand you a massive stack of books and introduce them to you, whilst you sit back and relax.
My latest reads to share with you are a fabulously funny and sexy romance with a disabled heroine, a painfully sweet romance with a bucket of laughs about how to really live a life in the face of death, and a steamy hot tale of internet dating and learning to trust again. These were such wonderful books and I can’t wait to share my thoughts about them with you.
The next top picks from my kindle library are a crazy billionaire romance with a meet cute in a men’s bathroom, a steamy drama set in a Sonoma county winery, and a fake romance novel set in Manchester. The books were either recommended to me by authors, or found by my eternal quest to find writers like me.
Here are the current top picks from my kindle library. A gentle British romance set amongst the upper classes, a steamy gangster love story set in East LA, and a ‘enemies to lovers’ novel set in a publishing company in Australia. All three books were fabulous reads, and all were recommended to me by my editor or other authors. I absolutely loved them and hope you do too
Books for me have been my refuge, my treat, my escape. I devour them insatiably like a never ending supply of calorie free chocolate.
Evie had intended her writing to be serious romances, full of angst and subdued passions. Unfortunately it turned out that her writing was much more like her; unintentionally ridiculous, potty-mouthed, and a bit (at least in her head) steamy.
