Favorite Authors for Summer Romance Suspense #mgtab

Unlike a lot of readers, I don’t really have an all time favorite novel. Usually when I read, it’s because I enjoy the writing of a certain author as opposed to the specific content of a story.

Also, sometimes I have to be in a certain frame of mind to read, even a  book written by a favorite author. My life is very complicated as the mom and caregiver of a severely autistic son, and I find as the years go by that, more and more, I look for books with only a happily ever after ending.

Which is all I seem to be able to write as well. Isn’t that silly? I hate cliffhangers, and I don’t enjoy leaving too much of a mystery for the reader to puzzle about when I finish a story.

Unless it involves a complicated plot involving a topic like human trafficking and capturing members of the ring, which of course is a struggle if the net is widespread.

I guess what I’ll do is share some of my favorite authors and tell you why I enjoy what they write. So many stories I read these days offer me no surprises and I can usually easily guess the plot.

  

Linda Howard is one of my all-time favorites because of the way she manages to inject humor in her romance suspense series. My favorite book from her has got to be OPEN SEASON. I’ve never laughed so hard and it’s a story about a serial killer!

Nora Roberts. What can I say? Nora is Nora. I’m not so much into her older stories as I am in her standalones, but she has a few fantasy series which I loved (under her own name), and it’s hard for me to recall the names of the ones I liked best, but at least half of what she’s written was worth reading and sometimes even reading again.

 

Tami Hoag I don’t read as much as Tami Hoag as I used to, because her stories tend to have conclusions that are a little up in the air. But if you want unique stories and lots of surprises, she’s a fantastic author.

I used to enjoy Nicholas Sparks too. As a matter of fact, I’ve had some reviewers compare what I write to his novels. But I have to agree with reviewers of his books; his writing is a little off track these days -apparently because he was recently divorced.

Romance suspense isn’t the only genre I love. I still enjoy reading regency romance. Mary Balogh and Grace Burrowes are two of my favorite authors, and occasionally I read books by Stephanie Laurens as well.

I have hundreds of books on shelves at home. Patricia Cornwell, John Grisham, David Baldacci among others I read occasionally.

But my tastes have changed through the years. I used to enjoy most romance, but even with new authors, so many plots and storylines have become repetitive – they’re just told in a slightly different way.

I wish I had more time to read. I used to read about 15 novels per week (yes really!!) But since I’ve become an author, something strange has been happening–success. So not only writing, but promoting, seems to have taken over my life.

It’s Time For June Weddings!! #mgtab

 

 

 

 

 

Happy June Everyone!

I guess I’ve mentioned I’m a former horticulturist, but I was also a floral designer for many years, and began doing wedding flowers for several local florists while I was still in college. After graduating, I kept the business going for a very long time, even while I was working other full-time jobs.

So what finally stopped me??

Writing!!

We have some fantastic wedding anthologies coming out this month, and I’m proud to be included in two of them.

Also, Two Hearts Under Fire (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8) will be included in Love Under Fire, releasing November. The details are down below if you’d like to join our reader group to meet the authors and win prizes and giveaways. I’ll be participating on June 9, but we’ll have something happening every day until the 21st.

Have a wonderful June and Happy Reading!!

Crystal Rock, Wisconsin…

Is a purely fictional resort town where my stories take place. The Dragonfly Pointe Inn has been restored, and in the process, it’s discovered that a human trafficking ring has been operating in the area during the years when the inn was abandoned.

Or has the trafficking been going on for much longer?

I do weave a slight element of fantasy through my stories.

Once two lovers kiss at Dragonfly Pointe? Their love is meant to last forever.
