In my last post I promised to point you towards some great romances to get you started. That led to the idea that each month I should post a few of my favourite romances. And I hope you'll comment and share any suggestions you might have. I'm always looking for a new read.
I also discovered today when thinking about which books I should recommend (I'm going to keep it to two a month) that most of my reading is in the sub-genre of Regency Romance. Big surprise, hey? But I'm going to do my best to branch out and check out some other sub-genres and share those as well. I've also linked to the author websites, in case you want to check them out. I hope you enjoy!
This was the regency that really made me want to try my hand at writing it. I read this book out loud to my hubby, and he enjoyed it as much as I did. It's funny. And I love a good romance that makes me laugh. Keep an eye out for a scene that involves a dramatic reading that had us in tears from laughing. You know it's a good book when several years later, you still remember a particular scene. Please check out this link, because there's a great book trailer that goes with this one.
Like Julia Quinn's books, it's hard to choose just one of Suzanne Enoch's to recommend. But this novel takes place at sea, and for a romance novel, has some very eye-opening revelations about the nature of colonialism. The historian in me really enjoyed this book. And who doesn't love a dashing sea captain? Also, this is one of my favourite covers ever; yellow isn't used enough, in my opinion.
