Message From Above

I sent an email to one of my favorite romance authors, Pam Rosenthal, and she wrote a very gracious reply. It was so nice of her to take the time to answer. If you haven’t read any of her books, you are missing out on some of the most gorgeous writing in romance today.

From The Bookseller’s Daughter:

Such a jumble, such a torrent of sensation. And such a mystery, for she couldn’t think how they’d come to be in each other’s arms in the first place. It didn’t seem quite accurate to say he’d “swept” her into his arms — or, for that matter, that she’d “rushed” into his embrace. If there had been a crucial gesture, a shy or importunate first touch, she couldn’t specify what it had been or who had made it. The embrace had simply — happened, like a bolt of summer lightning.


OK, your turn. Tell me about an author I *have* to read…

  1. That is a lovely excerpt. I think you would enjoy Elizabeth Hoyt, a new author. Her first book, The Raven Prince, is delightful and has sold really well. I managed to get an arc of her forthcoming book, The Leopard Prince, and it is even better. Her characters are mature and complex, and the sensuality is very hot, but never gratuitous.

  2. That’s funny, I just read about that book on Amazon. Sounds really interesting. My bf’s sister is coming to China next week to visit, and I’m filling her suitcase with books, poor girl.
